EVERYDAY MAKEUP ESSENTIALS FOR A NATURAL MAKE-UP LOOK.

EVERYDAY MAKEUP ESSENTIALS FOR A NATURAL MAKE-UP LOOK.

Hi guys I want to share my everyday make-up essentials with you and also tell you why I choose to use these products on (almost) daily basis. Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof #20 ‘Espresso’ For a natural look I like to use a brown eyeliner on my upper and lower lashline. I don’t always line them both but for a natural look the shade must be definitely brown for me! You can blend it out a little bit with a smudge brush to avoid the harsh line. I love this pencil because it is 1. Waterproof, and smudgeproof (good for my constantly teary eyes)  and 2. Sharpener free is mess free! Just wind it up or down and your ready to go. The buid in sharpener will refresh the pencil point when needed.  No more sharpener dirt stains in your make-up bag. 3. The ‘Espresso’ shade is very nice.  I hate brown eyeliners with red in it, but this shade is just perfect. 4. The staying power is very good! I have teary and oily eyes but Chanel does what it claims. (€24,50) Bobbi Brown Shimmerbrick ‘Bronze’ I got this amazing bronzer/highlighter as a birthday present and I can’t live without it anymore. I chose ‘Bronze’ because this shade complements my dark skintone very well. I personally don’t like it as a blush because my skin is combination to oily and I don’t want to look like a disco ball at the end of the day. You can use the Shimmer Brick as a blush too but I only use it to highlight my face. My blushshades are quite deep (Raizin /Ambering Rose both...
YSL ROUGE PUR COUTURE #66 ROSEWOOD

YSL ROUGE PUR COUTURE #66 ROSEWOOD

I have finally found the perfect sophisticated (daily wear) nude lipstick,  a nice soft rose nude with a brown undertone. I am raving about this YSL Rouge Pur Couture #66 ‘Rosewood’/’Boise De Rose’ (34,95) . I nearly gave up my search for a good nude Iipcolor because it is so difficult to find. If it wasn’t for the lovely shop assistant I wouldn’t own this one today because I didn’t  know this colour existed.  I tried some nude shades in the past but I wasn’t really impressed. A good nude lipcolor is very difficult to find and even more when you have a dark skintone.  My lips are quite pigmented so a pale or beige nude won’t work for me. The wrong shade can make me look sick or washed out. I don’t want a lipcolor to have that effect on me. That is really not the look I want (I guess none of you want a look like that). As you could read in several of my blogpost I love the makeup no makeup look. This look will not be complete without a nude shade on my lips. I adore my Tom Ford Rose Crush lipgloss (the most beautiful nude I know ) but I was still in need of a good lipcolor to complete the look. I would like to add more nudes to my lipstick collection, but untill then, I will be enjoying this shade. YSL Rouge pur Couture is a smooth and creamy with a good colour pay off, I can wear it during the day at work and during the evening paired with a nice smokey eye. I love to wear...
TIP: YSL COUTURE MONO EYESHADOWS

TIP: YSL COUTURE MONO EYESHADOWS

I am not a big fan of eyeshadows because I prefer the natural look and that doesn’t include eyeshadows (for me) but I made an exception for the YSL Couture Mono Eyeshadows. The YSL Couture Mono Eyeshadows are launched for spring 2015. “Yves Saint Laurent presents all day wear and the highest chromatic power, now in 16 iconic shades. No crease, no migration, only intense color pay off that makes a statement. Available in matte, satin, metallic and shimmer finishes.” I love them because of the color range, the chic packaging and the staying power. I swatched #13 ‘Fouge’ on my hand and on my eyelids and I need to confirm to you that the staying power is very good! I had to remove it with a good remover/cleansingbalm. I know that € 31,95 for a single eyeshadow is a little bit crazy but for me it was worth the pricetag. I guess that a lot of you would prefer to buy a dupe since the colorrange is very basic. I bought color #13 because I love to do smokey eye make-up especially when going for a dinner or going out. I love the YSL campaign with Cara D. she looks so beautiful with her smokey eyes. I was looking for a good eyeshadow with a intense color and staying power to set my eyeliner. I suffer from watery eyes so it is necessary for me to own good waterproof khol liners and to be double shure I set it with a good eyeshadow. I don’t want to end up looking like panda eyes. Panda’s are cute animals but the...
YSL COUTURE EYE PRIMER

YSL COUTURE EYE PRIMER

As you already may know YSL is one of my favourite beauty brands (review here and here). I will admit that the packaging is definitely one of the reasons why I love to purchase YSL beauty products. It is not only about their gorgeous packaging but also about the quality of their products. A few weeks ago YSL introduced the brand’s latest eye offerings. I love every single piece of the collection but today I will discuss the COUTURE EYE PRIMER. “YSL introduces the ultimate Couture Eye Primer. Get 16 hours of vibrant color or wear it solo for a perfect nude eye look. This formula locks in color for crease-free wear that lasts all day.” This was my first experience using a eyeprimer and I need to say that I am quite impressed with the Couture Eye Primer from YSL. My eyelids get oily during the day, they can get very greasy between the creases. I once received the tip to apply concealer on my eyelids to even out the skintone but this tip will not work for me. Because of my oily eyelids the concealer will get between the creases and that is not nice to see. The problem is that you won’t be noticing it but every one around you will do. SHADE 2 MEDIUM YSL gives what he promised! 16 hours crease free. This eyeprimer is amazing my eyes just look much better than when I don’t use it. Just apply a little bit with your fingertip, you will love it. I am not a big eyeshadow lover but I bought this due to the fact...
YVES SAINT LAURENT ROUGE VOLUPTE SHINE NO28 ROSE INTIME

YVES SAINT LAURENT ROUGE VOLUPTE SHINE NO28 ROSE INTIME

YVES SAINT LAURENT ROUGE VOLUPTE SHINE NO28 ROSE INTIME YSL knows how to make a girl happy! The Rouge Volupte Shine (34,95) is a true luxury lip product, have you seen the elegant case with the golden metallic packaging? So luxurious and feminine. I was waiting for YSL to launch the YSL Tint in Oil  and the new Rouge Volupte Shine spring/summer lipstick  #28 ‘Rose Intime’.  At first I had the intention to buy the YSL Tint in Oil #5 Cherry my Cherrie but the shade just didn’t looked good on me. It wasn’t really about the shade but about how the stain developed on my lips. For me it just wasn’t  nice enough to spend my money on it.The Rouge Volupte Shine #28 ‘Rose Intime’ caught my eye and it was love on the first sight. I fell in love with this shiny lipstick. Rose Intime can be described as a deep fuchsia. You can use it as a gloss because it is very sheer and shiney but it is much more pigmented than a regular gloss or lipbalm. If you like the lipstick to be intense just build it up. The lipstick applies smoothly and even, there is no sticky or thick feeling. I also love the smell but that is a personal preference. For me it is a everyday lipstick and absolutely worth the price tag (although I have to admit that I love YSL lipsticks partly because of the packaging). YSL Rouge Volupte feels incredible on the lips and it gives you a very hydrating feeling.There is a big variety of colors so there must be a shade for everyone.   Disclaimer:...
