summer make up tutorial and first impressions.

Earlier this week i created a smokey summery look. I have been very inspired to do one, especially in some peach tones. I got to use some of my new products and i will do a review on them soon 🙂

I started out with a cleansed face and moisturizer. Since i had already applied make up earlier that day, i decided to keep my brows. I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow pomade in blonde. Processed with VSCO with e4 preset

Processed with VSCO with  presetI started with the Urban Decay Optical Illusion complexion primer. I applied it with my fingers. Afterwards i moved on to my foundation, i used the Urban Decay All Nighter foundation in 0.5. I expected a very high coverage and a long lasting foundation. I found the foundation to be more of a full coverage than any other foundation I’ve tried, but i could still  see some of redness shining trough. Another thing i noticed was that without primer the foundation was easily worn off, and it oxidized.   Processed with VSCO with e4 preset

Processed with VSCO with  presetAfter the first layer of foundation i applied some color correction and some contour. I used some Scandinavian brands, the Under Cover correct and contour palette and the makeup mekka contour palette.

Processed with VSCO with e4 presetI applied the medium dark color around my temples, on the upper part of my for head and along my jawline and cheekbones. Then i added a darker contour shade on my nose and on my cheekbones. I also applied green color correction in my cheeks and on the lower part of my forehead. I also applied yellow and pink color correction under my eyes and some purple on my cheeks and other parts of my face where my complexion Processed with VSCO with e4 preset2017-05-21 08.16.36 1.jpgAfter blending the contour i added an other layer of foundation.Processed with VSCO with e4 preset2017-05-21 08.16.34 2.jpgAfter applying the second layer of foundation, i went over with some powder contour from Smashbox.

20170503_201857_006Used the colors from Colourpop´s Phase me out value set. I applied the color Going Rouge all over my lid as a base. I used the One by One shadow on the lower part of the lid, and then to create a “smokey” i used flipper.  The last color i applied along my lash line was Itty Bitty.

For lips i used the Ultra Satin Lip form Colourpop in the shade Echo Park.

Makeup collection and storage.

My makeup collection is not very big, but its good. It consist of great makeup, which i will share with you, and must have products. I avoid buying makeup thats tested on animals, and buy the cruelty free instead.

 

Foundations:

I dont have any seriously good foundations, which is quite annoying considering the money i spend on them. The Smashbox and BareMinerals foundation tend to get very caky, and it doesn’t last very long before its kind of vanished in certain areas. The cushion foundation by Isadora is good, but it contains a small amount of product and it runs out super fast. The isadora wakeup makeup foundation is quite good but the color is wrong, this summer it was my go-to foundation, but in some shades darker. I still never get my self to buy another one…

Bronser, highlighter and blush: 

My favorite bronser at the moment is the solar powder by soap and glory. Its a gorgeous bronzer and its easy to build up. I also love the sun bunny bronser from Too faced and the naked illuminator from urban decay, its two beautiful bronsers,  but i prefer the result of the solar powder. My everyday bronser is a smashbox one, which comes in their counter palette. The contour palette contains a matte contour shade, a matte bronzer and a matte highlighter. I dont like the highlighter in the palette, but it doesn’t matter because i rarley use highlighter in my everyday makeup.

My favorite highlighter is the Mary-lou manizer by the Balm, its easy to build up and it gives a natural like glow, which i love! It also have a super cute packaging ! I also bought the high beam highlighter by benefit. The high beam is a good highlighter but i prefer the mary-lou one, because high beam is difficult to build up since its a liquid one.

I love the look of a good blush. It gives back the glow and color to your face, which normally disappear after foundation and concealer are applied. The too faced candy glow is a very pretty blush, which is perfect for summer and a lighter feel to the result look. My favorite blush are the hot mama! form the balm, the color is perfect the entire year! just like the Too faced blush it has such a cute packaging and its easy to build up.

Palettes:

i have two stunning palettes from Tarte, the tartlet in bloom and the swamp queen palette. Its impossible to pick a favorite between them, they are gorgeous. Both palettes smells really good, and the shades are super simple to build up. You can make every kind of look with these palettes, a dramatic look, natural look and the no makeup look. If you are looking for a palette to spend a little money on, i highly recommend these two. My favorite shades in the tartelette in bloom is the sweetheart, flower child or the funny girl shade. Rocker and smarty pants is also stunning shades. My favorite shades in the swamp queen palette is “does this thing really work?”, #SFS, natural peaches or the haunting shade. Sassy bun is also another shade which is perfect for the party glam look. The swamp queen palette also comes with a good brush! Both of the palettes also have great mirrors , and a elegant clean look to them.

 Lips:

For my lips I’ve been loving the nyx matte lip creams, the product are highly pigmented and they are easy to apply. i have Amsterdam, Antwerp, Prague , Ibiza and Milan. Milan or Ibiza is my favorite shades, they are both a pink color but the Milan is more purple and the Ibiza one is more of a raspberry color. I also have their butter glosses in Napoleon and sorbet. The sorbet color is brighter than the napoleon one. I done like the look of bright colors on myself, thats why the Napoleon is my favorite one. I also have two Nyx lingerie liquid lipsticks, both in the color baby doll. The color is pretty, but not on the lip, its to bright for me.

I also have one Too faced melted liquid lipstick in the color melted strawberry.  I regret not buying another one, because they are super good! It feels good on the lips, and its even possible to build it up.
