EOTD : Classic Smokey Eye

Hello my lovelies (:

Here is a new EOTD. Today, I did this '' CLASSIC '' smokey-eye for you :) It's very simple, easy and fast to do, TRUST ME :) All you gotta do is get your favorite eyeshadows out and START colorring :)

Products used :
- UDPP, as always :P
No base used today, but you can always add one for more color pop :)
- Aveda's shadow plus vitamins eye shadow in COBALT. It's just and amazing dark blue-gray, steel-grey color :) It's AMAAAZZIINGLY PIGMENTED ! I put that color all over my lid. If it's too dark for you, just take any lighter E/S and VOILA :)
- Sephora's eye shadow in Aspen Summit number 23. This is a nice frosty, satin white color :) I put it on my inner corners. When you use darker colors like i did, putting a whiter color on you inner corners, makes you look LESS like a racoon and makes your eyes POP even more :)
- Cover Girl's Brown Smolder Eyeshadow a little above the crease to warm the look up a little :)
- WNW matte black eyeshadow on my outer Vs :)
- Mascara. Put whateveeerrrr you want :) You can also add falsies ( that's what I would do If I was going out ).

And BLEEENNNDDD PLEASSEE ::) You'll need to blend a lot ;) But, don't OVER do-it, otherwise your colors will look muddy and stuff :( EW!

That's it my girlies :) I hope you've enjoyed this look. MANY MORE IS TO COME :) I know I have been MIA for SOOOO frking long. BUT I'M BACK NOW !! :)

Hii guyys :)

Yes, I'm still alive hehe & I just wanted to let you know that I haven't been doing post lately because of the weather. It has been sooo hot and humid. I didn't really feel like wearing make-up TRUST ME :) I didn't even feel like doing anything, except of swimming :) So as soon as it gets back to normal, I'll do more tutorials and more reviews and stuff. Doncha worry ^^

I'm really sorry (L)

June '10 delights :)

Hello loves <3 :)

It's that time of the month again :) but unfortunately, I don't have much to show this month. It's mainly because I don't really wear a lot of make-up in summer :( Sorry guys :( Booh !

Let's get started :
1. Nivea's Hydro Care Lip Balm :
I love it ! It makes my lips so soft and moisturized and ready for the next favorite ;)

2. WnW's Mega Last Lip Color in Just Peachy 903C :
This color is perfect for summer time. It's a nude-coraly color :) It looks amazingly good on tanned skin :) However, you need to moisturize your lips before. This l/s is matte, but surprisingly not drying. I have it in Think Pink too and it's fabulous.

3. N.Y.C. Lip sliders Tinted Lip Balm in Sugar Coated 509A :
When I Heard Hollyannaeree talk about it on YT, I felt the need to have it 2 (We have pretty much the same make-up tastes, so when she likes something, usually I like it too ^^ ) And I LOVE IT. It does what it's supposed to. It moisturizes your lips and gives you a sheer but nice wash of color. You can wear it by itself or over a L/S. It's up to you :) I also have it in SUGAR KISS, which I love 2.

4. Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen in 01 Blackest Black :
This guy is an old love that I have forgotten about :( & One day, I was playing with my make-up and rediscovered it and I remembered why I loved it so much. AH ! It makes a perfect line every time and the black is a real black :) Not a fake ass black, a true one :) Love it.

5. Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express in Glam Black :
This is my HG mascara. I simply swear by it. It makes my lashes so long and gives them so much volume. I would cry if they would discontinue it :( I'm thinking of showing you before and after pictures :) and reviewing it. To come...

6. Lacoste Inspiration Perfume :
This is my summer scents :) It's my go-to thing ! Everyone I know, likes it. All my friends, as different as they can be, love it. They all have different tastes, but they all agree that it smells heavenly :) Smell it :) and tell my what you think of it.

That's it you guys :)

Have you tried any of the products mentioned ? If yes, tell me if you like them or not and why ^^ Your comments are extremely appreciated & I wish you a very good month of July !


FOTD : Yellow Orange Coral

Hii giirls :) <3

Today, I wanted to do a summery look :) And this is what I came up with ^^ This look is definitely for you color-lovers out there :) Once again, I had problems with the color show-off :( It's so much more vibrant in real life :( Booh ! Can someone help me ? :) Some camera tips & tricks anyone ? Por favor ^^ The colors I used are : Yellow on the lid, Orange on the crease & outer corners, Coral on the outer 2/3 of the lower lash line and White in the inner corners. For this look, you'll need a good primer, but also a good base. That way, the colors will POP even more ;) Nyx's Jumbo pencils for example:)

I hope you like this look :) If you have any ideas or suggestions, please share them with me :)

Tutorial : Natural Smokes

Hi lovelies :)

Last time I did a FOTD, a follower, Cheryl, asked me if I had a Step-by-step tutorial or a video about that particular look. Unfortunately, I didn't have one :( BUT, this time, I have a step-by-step tutorial for you guys :) YAYYYYY ! It's a quick simple shimmery everyday look, but it took me SUPER MEGA LONG because of the pictures haha :( I did this look using Maybelline's Natural Smokes Quad :) By the way, a review is coming about that quad. I say it's more of a day-time look, but you can definitely add some more intensity to your outer V, add falsies and you are good to go for night-time:) Isn't that wonderful?

If you're interested, in this brown smokey-eye, keep reading :)

Step 1: Base

Put any pretty shimmery warm chocolate brown base on your lid. I used the first shade from the right in the Revlon Illuminance Crème Shadow in Not Just Nudes. I love these creme shadows. They make good bases. However, if you want them to not crease and last, put a primer before.

Step 2: Lid Color

Take any flat eye-shadow brush and put the CREASE COLOR of the quad on your lid. Yes, I'm not following their instructions. Shame one me ^^

Step 3: Crease

Take any brush you're comfortable with and put the LID COLOR of the quad into the crease. Personally, I wouldn't use any brush that is stiff because we're doing a day-time look, but if you're going for a night-time look, you can definitely take a stiffer brush and define the crease a lot more.

As you can probably notice on the picture below, I drew a drastic crease line. I drew it for those of you, who are still struggling with finding it. The crease is basically the socket of your eye. Close one eye and take a brush. Then, GENTLY poke your eye. Where you feel a socket, that's your crease. Normally...

& I blended everything of COURSE :)

Step 4: Highlight

Take any angled shading brush and put the Brow Bone Color of the quad on your brow bone. I tried to take a picture, but the color wasn't showing and I got pissed. So, I continued haha.

Step 5: Outer Corner

Take a pencil brush, or whatever brush you feel you're comfortable with, and take the darkest color of the quad. Draw a LIGHT outer v or outer corner or outer edge. ( However you call it ^^ ) Keep in mind that this is a day-time look, so you don't want it too intense.

Step 6: Final Touches

Take the same outer corner color you put on you lid earlier and put it on the outer 2/3 of your lower lash line. Then, take the lid color and put it on 1/3 of your lower lash line. After that, curl your lashes and put some mascara on :)

Final result:

If you're wondering why the lighting is different from picture to picture, well it's because of my mischievous friend the Sun, who is playing hide & seek behind the clouds.

Skin Care Regimen :)

Hello Beautiful people :)

Today I wanted to share with you my skin care regimen.

The Novel:
Having good skin is 10028409652349853 times more important than having nice make-up on because make-up is like painting. You have to start with a nice bare canvas and only then, you'll be able to do the most gorgeous masterpieces ever :) I know that because I used to have really bad acne. When I used to look at my skin in the mirror, I remember how I always wanted to cry. It was horrible. Then, some day, I decided to go see a dermatologist, she gave me pills and told me that it was hormonal. However, it was sort of too late. Acne had already made its damages. It was too late because it took me around 2 years to decide that I wanted to visit the dermatologist. (STUPID ME) Why is 2 years too late ? Well, you need to attack acne as soon as you see it. Don't let it settle down. (I'm sure you know what I mean) & that's exactly what happened to me. My acne had become worse and worse and worse. My face was red and full of pimples. Now, thank God, the acne is completely gone. But, the scars remained. (that's the worst part of acne). That's why you need to treat acne as soon as you notice it. Don't wait too long because it's really HARD to erase that mistake and erase scars. It took me 2 years to erase that "waiting" mistake I did. Actually, it's still not completely gone. I still have acne scars on my forehead, mainly in between my eyebrows :( I'll probably go see a doctor and see if I can do microdermabrasion to get rid of them. I want to get rid of the scars before they get too old. Grrr. You don't want your scars to be too old, because those are the most stubborn & they don't wanna leave. Trust me.

My skin type: Dry. Yes, I have dry skin now. How weird is that. haha. In winter it's dry and in summer it's normal :) And honestly I like having Dry skin. I prefer it 1209480 times more than the oily skin I used to have.

My skin care regimen:

In the Morning: Toner :) I only tone in the morning after washing my face with warm water. Sometimes I don't even do that. I feel like my skin looks great in the morning :) And, of course, I put my Neutrogena Comfort Cream before anything. In winter, I use the Nivea Soft Cream. & The toner I'm using right now is a Nivea one, ( l love Nivea ) but as soon as I finish up the bottle, I'll try a new one. Any recommendations ?

At Night: I wash my face with Olay's Daily Facials Hydrating Cleansing Cloth for Normal to Dry skin. Since I'm a lazy person, these cloths are puuurfect for me :) After I made sure that I got rid of all the make-up, I put my Marcelle Eye Cream under my eyes . If you want to see my review on it, click here. After that, I put my Cetaphil moisturizer on :) If you wanna see a review on it, click here. And If I have a pimple, I put some Mario Badescu Drying Cream on it. But, I don't have pimples really often, so I don't use it a lot. Thank God ! Sometimes, In winter, when my skin gets super dry, I put Nivea's cream, The original one.

That's it. My skin is doing really good right now. I'm sooooo happy about that you have no idea. I had so many problems with my skin. Now, gladly, everything is fine. It makes me smile when people say : Oh your skin looks amazing. It kinda makes my day <3.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask them :) and also, keep in mind that every skin is UNIQUE, so if something worked for me, It might not for you and vice versa . Also, if you have any suggestions about toners, PLEASE SHARE ! ^^

FOTD: Bedroom Eyes

Hi lovelies :)

Here is a Fotd for you guyys :) It's a nice dark bedroom eye look. What sucks though, is that you know that most of the time I use matte eye shadows and this time I decided to use some shimmery ones. But THA camera didn't pick up the glitters and that sucks :( GRRR !! Can someone give me some tips for make-up photos haha ? Anyways. I used the Elf encyclopedia eye edition for this look. I was bored today and I was looking through my make-up and remembered how much I loved this palette. So, I decided to do a look with it :) Here it is only for you ^^ :

Normally, I would wear falsies with this type of look, but since I have no talent in make-up photo taking, I didn't put them. Why ? Well, I feel like they sort of hide the makeup. I don't know :( Anyways, tell me what are your thoughts about this look :) And If you have any tips for make-up photos, please share them ^^ !
