As much fun and colourful summer make up looks are my favourites are definitely more fall and winter. I’m more on the pale side, so I love how in fall and winter pale skin is totally normal (not that it wouldn’t be otherwise) but what I mean is that I don’t feel like a ghost compared to my perfectly tanned friends. I actually really like the look of fair skin with more neutral eyes and a red lip in fall and winter.
So today it’s all about a casual and super super easy eye make up I’ve been a bit obsessed with lately. You only need a few products and it’s so easy and fast to do, meaning it’s perfect for every day. Especially because it’s super causal.
Basically what I do is I pick any lighter brown shade and apply it all over my eyelids. The eyeshadow I’ve used in this picture is Nooner by Urba Decay. Then I take another brown color a few shades darker and apply that in my crease and outer v. Then I blend it really well so you almost can’t tell it’s there. I want this to be really natural, so it’s supposed to just add a bit more definition to my eyes. Next I use any highlighting shade along my brow bone.
Now it comes to a tiny bit more tricky part. Applying eyeliner. Usually I go for deep black gel or liquid eyeliner but I want this to be really soft, so I’ve lately gotten into brown pencil eyeliners. My favorite one at the moment is the Urband Decay 24/7 glide on eye pencil in Demolition. Demolition is a dark brown shade, which is gorgeous. The eyeliner itself is so long lasting and a dream to apply because it’s so soft. It doesn’t smudge and stays in place all day. It’s pretty much all you would expect from a good pencil eyeliner. So what I do is I apply my eyeliner along three quarters of my lash line leaving out the corners of my eyes. Then I apply it halfway along the waterline. I love this as it gives definition to my eyes and brings out the blue in them but it still looks much softer because of the brown. Last step is whatever mascara you like!
Lately I’ve really become a fan of some classic dark brown pencil eyeliner and this is how I use it. I think it’s perfect for a casual fall every day make up look. What do you think?
Thanks for reading!
Hey there my fellow make-up lovers. Anyone seen the commercial for Maybelline’s new Super Stay Better Skin foundation? I have like a million times, so today I finally bought it. Of course once I was in the store I couldn’t just buy one thing and spend a little more than intended.
This is it. Maybelline new Super Stay Better Skin foundation. Supposedly it gives you a flawless teint, that lasts all day. I know a lot of foundations promise this but what’s different about this one is, that apparently it also improves your skin within 3 weeks. That got me curious, so I’m gonna give it a try in the next few days and let you guys know what I think.
Today I also found out that Maybelline has a new nude lipstick collection and since I love the nude look for my everyday make up I couldn’t help myself. I just had to get one. This is nr. 725 Tantalizing Taupe. I like this color because it’s not too light and not too dark. It’s got a rich texture and also adds a little shimmer to your lips. I think it’s one of my new fave lipsticks.
I’m also a fan of the Maybelline Eyestudio eyeshadow palettes. The colors go together so perfectly and I really needed a new one for my everyday make up, so I decided to go with this one, because I love these earthly tones. It’s the nr. 2 Vivids Plum. I also love the size of these because they fit into every purse, so you can always carry them with you in case you need a touch up.
The Big Eyes mascara and the Master Precise liquid eyeliner are re-purchases. I’ve bought them a while ago and I really liked them.Especially the eyeliner. I’m pretty sure this is my third already. It basically looks like a felt-tip and using it is as easy as drawing a line with a felt-tip. So it’s definitely a recommendation for all the girls that have problems with drawing the perfect line. I usually don’t run into trouble with drawing a line with my eyeliner because of years of practice but this one is great when I’m in a hurry and really have to rush.
Last but not least I also purchased this adorable little mini hairspray. I have to admit I use A LOT of hairspray. It’s probably one of my most used beauty products, so now I can always carry one with me because it’s so tiny. I’m in love it.
That was it for today. Have a lovely day folks!:)
