EOTD: Christmas dinner with Al Burgundy

Hello lovelies :) 
It is Christmaaaaaaaas!
Me and my boyfriend are going to have a dinner with my family, as we do every year on Christmas Eve and I decided to share the make up I am going to wear today :) I did not know what to wear, the only think I knew is that I would like to wear Al Burgundy, since it is such a beautifull shade. Here is what I came up with :)

PRODUCTS USED:
*Jordana 12hr made to last eyeshadow pencil in 04 continuous almond
*Catrice matt velvet eyeshadows in 01 Vanillaty Fair, 030 Jump Up And Brown and 040 Al Burgundy
*MUA Undress Me Too eyeshadow palette (Devotion and Shy)
*Catrice Lash Extension Volume Mascara
*Catrice Liquid Liner in 010 Dating Joe Black




I used Jordana 12hr made to last eyeshadow pencil in 04 continuous almond as a base for my eyeshadows all ower my eyelid up to the brow and applied Al Burgundy all over my lid.


After that I applied Jump Up and Brown into the crease and blended it out.


I used Vanillaty Fair on my browbone, Shy on the inner corner of my eyes and Devotion on the middle of the lid to add a bit of sparkle.



I finished the look with Catrice Liquid Liner in 010 Dating Joe Black and applied two coats of Catrice Lash Extension Volume Mascara on the upper lashes and a coat on the lower lashes.

What make up will you be wearing today? How will you spend your Christmas eve?
Have a nice day and Merry Christmas :)

Secret Santa :)

Hello lovelies :)
I have a bit of a different post for you today :) Živa from Nothing Fancy Really organised Secret Santa at the beginning of December, and ofcourse all of fellow beauty bloggers (including me) participated. I got the gift a few days ago and needless to say I was happy as a child on a Christmas morning. My lovely secret Santa turned out to be Jasna from Jessie Fairytale and I must say that I really like the gift I got.

EOTD: Soft & lilac

Hello lovelies :)
I have a new eotd to share with you today :) It is a very soft look with a bold cat eye, something I like to wear for every day. Here is how I did it and what I used :)

PRODUCTS USED:
*Essence I <3 stage eyeshadow primer
*Catrice eyeshadow C01 Chilly White (Lala Berlin LE)
*Wet'n'Wild Petal pusher palette eyelid colour
*Sleek au naturel palette Nugat and toast
*Catrice waterproof gel eyeliner 010 Black Jack with Jack Black
*Catrice Lash extension volume mascara


First I used Essence I <3 stage eyeshadow primer to prime my eyelids and applied Catrice eyeshadow C01 Chilly White all over my lid, stopping at the crease.


I applied Nugat in the crease and Toast on the browbone, both eyeshadows are from the Sleek Au Naturel palette.


I applied  the darker brownish purple eyelid colour from the Wet'n'Wild Petal Pusher palette on the outer corner and the outer half of my lower lash line.


I finished the look with the Catrice waterproof gel eyeliner and Catrice Lash extension volume mascara on my lower and upper lashes.

And that would be all for today :) I really like the look, but I would probably change the line, making it not so bold.

What do you think?
Have a nice day ;)

REVIEW: Catrice Color Correcting Mattifying Powder

Hello lovelies :)
I have this powder for quite some time now and I have been using it on and off since I have quite a few face powders to finish (I have a face powder problem). I was postponing this review for various reasons, the main being that the product left kinda a meh first impression. I think that I tested the product enough now to give you my oppinion on it.



The powder comes in a plastic compact packaging. The packaging would probably survive traveling but it probably won't survive a drop on the floor. There is 8 g /0.28 oz of product in it, which should last you quite some time.


It has a thin consistency and goes almost transparent on the skin. It leaves the skin matt for quite some time and does not appear powdery. Aldough this powder contains purple, reddish, orange and green pigments it does not have any colour correcting capabilities, since it has such a thin texture. The mattifying properties do not last the whole day, at least not on my oily skin, but it can be reapplied without looking cakey or patchy on the skin. It is easy to apply and blend into the skin, but getting it on the brush can be a bit tricky, since you need to rubb the brush into the product to get enough product on the brush.


All in all, this is just an ordinary face powder, it does it's job well, just do not expect any major colour correction.

Did you try this powder? What are your thoughts on it?
Have a nice day :)

EOTD: Blue Had Me At Hello

Hello lovelies :)
I do not wear blue eyeshadow very much, but I fell in love with this look. I used only Blue had me at hello by Wet'n'Wild palette, which I got from the Destination Pretty online store.



PRODUCTS USED:*Wet'n'Wild Blue had me at hello eyeshadow palette
*Catrice Lashes to kill volume mascara
*Essence I <3 stage mascara
*Catrice liquid liner (010 Dating Joe Black)



I used the light blue eyelid colour all over my lid and blended it into my crease.


After I was happy with the intensity of the eyelid colour I used the light blue browbone colour to highlight the inner corner of my eyes and blend out the edge of the blue eyelid colour.


I used the dark blue crease colour and applied it on the outer third of my upper lid, 


I applied the same dark blue colour on the outer third of my lower lash line and the light blue colour on the inner two thirds of the lower lash line.


I finished my make up with a Catrice Lashes to kill volume mascara and Catrice liquid liner.

What do you think about this look?
Have a nice day ;)

REVIEW: Catrice waterproof gel eyeliner (010 Black Jack With Jack Black)

Hello lovelies :)
I did not use gel liners for quite some time, since using eyeshadow and liquid liners was far more convenient for me, but since we got this gel liner on the Essence & Catrice event I decided to try it out. Here is what I think about this product.



The gel liner comes in a glass packaging with a black lid. There is 3,5g/0.12 oz. of product in the packaging, which should last quite a long time. The packaging is quite heavy and sturdy.



The gel has quite a thick texture and is really black and pigmented. It has quite a smooth texture, aldough it is a bit tricky to apply with an angeled eyeliner brush. I feel like I get the best results applying it with a really thin eyeliner brush instead of an angeled brush. As for the longevity, it does not smudge, but it does transfer into the crease after some time. Aldough it is waterproof it is quite easy to remove. I also used this gel on the waterline, it went on nice and smooth, did not irritate my eyes and lasted for quite a few hours.



Here you can see how it looks like applied with an angeled brush. The line is not as precise and crisp and doing a thin line with an angeled brush is almost impossible (at least for me).

All in all I am not disappointed with the product, as far as longevity and opacity goes, but I have some difficulty applying it nicely.

Did you try out this product? What do you think?
Have a nice day ;)

EOTD: Trying out a new palette

Hello lovelies :)
Ever since I saw Taya's review of the Mememe palette (click here to read it) I wanted to try out one of their palettes. Since I do not have many green eyeshadows in my collection, I decided to get the palette in a shade Ocean eyes, which is full of greeny bluish colours. I decided to do a look with it to test it out :)




PRODUCTS USED:
*Mememe Ocean eyes quad
*Catrice Lashes to kill volume mascara
*Essence I <3 stage mascara



I used the lightest green shade from the quad all over my lid and blended it into the crease.


I applied the blue green shade (top left corner in the palette) all over my lid and blended it in the light green colour.


I applied the darker blue green colour (top right corner in the quad), on my lower lash line, leaving the inner third of the lash line. I applied the light green colour on the inner third of my lower lash line and blended both volours together.


I finished the look with two coats of Catrice Lashes to kill volume mascara on my top and bottom lashes.

I really like this quad and I really like how this look turned out :) I will definetly review this quad in the future.
Did you try any of the Mememe products? 
Have a nice day ;)

Here are the themes for all 10 days:

I will be posting every Monday and Saturday, only the last post will be on Wednesday, the last day of this year! :)

Day 1: Let It Snow

What i used:

  • Essence Effect nail polish - 22 i<3 magic
  • Black, white, red and yellow acrylic paint

First i did 2 coats of Vested Interested, applyed Holo, Que, Tal? on all nails, then i used I<3 magic on my thumb, index and ring finger. 
I drew some branches/ trees on all of the nails, except the middle one. For that i used black acrylic paint and the orange wood stick. With the angled brush i added some white paint on the branches to recreate snow. On the middle finger i drew a snow man with white paint, with black paint i did the had, hands, eyes and buttons. I mixed yellow and red acrylic paint for the nose/karots.

Here is the finished look:

After some time i added ''snow'' with a sponge and white paint of the bottom, but i don't know if i really like it.
