Green & Champagne Holiday Makeup For All Eye Colours

Hey guys! I’m back with another makeup look, this time ushering in the Holiday season. For this first look I thought I’d show you a little green smoked eye with a touch of champagne, great for an evening gathering. I find that green goes best with brown eyes, but the trick is finding the shade of green that goes best with your eye colour, skin tone and hair colour.

Makeup Artists Inspiration: Milk1422 AKA Sergey X

Happy Sunday world! Today’s post is just a quick one because I just recreated this chart by talented MAC makeup artist Sergey X (known as @milk1422 on Instagram). Sergey who hails from Russia, is known for creating gorgeous facecharts using different techniques. If I had to describe his style, I would say it is somewhere between whimsical and abstract. Think sparkles, graphic lines, paint brush effects and everything in between. Continue reading “Makeup Artists Inspiration: Milk1422 AKA Sergey X”

Highlighter Focus: Topshop Chameleon Glow in U-Turn

A few days ago I went out for dinner with my friend Priscilla, and while walking around Alexanderplatz we saw that a new Topshop store had opened at the Galeria mall. We  ended up spending a good 15 minutes swatching lipsticks and what have you in the makeup section. I had just gotten a phone job offer, so it was a euphoric time, perfect for some shopping! Little did I know I would come out with the Chameleon highlighter, appropriately named U-Turn.  Continue reading “Highlighter Focus: Topshop Chameleon Glow in U-Turn”

PLUM & GREY MAKEUP Feat. NYX Ombré Lip Duo

A couple of days ago I passed by Douglas (German Sephora, but not really..) to “have a look”, and they had restocked their NYX section, so of course I had to get something. Naturally and in keeping with my tradition of “never leave with your bank account intact”, I left with yet another Liquid Suede, Sandstorm this time, and my most recent discovery, their Ombré Lip Duo which I got in the shade Cookies & Cream. For today’s look I decided to try the Lip Duo for you guys, as I found it quite an intriguing concept! Continue reading “PLUM & GREY MAKEUP Feat. NYX Ombré Lip Duo”

Evening Glamour Makeup With A Twist

Hey guys! First off I am sorry for the long break I’ve taken from blogging, it’s been a hectic week. For today’s blog post I thought I’d show you a quick makeup with a little twist. I know all of you makeup junkies already know about the trick of using bronzer instead of eyeshadow on the eyelids, but for this look I thought I’d use it in a different way to achieve a full eye look, rather than the usual use which is to contour the eyes. Continue reading “Evening Glamour Makeup With A Twist”
