Natural Makeup

Halla Friends,

today I show you my usual makeup, well it is my usual makeup, but I normally used the color adapting bb-cream from The body shop instead of Foundation. I am not sure if I really need it, but I only used a little tiny bit and I got some compliments on my look on that day, so I guess it just enhanced my features. Which is good, because I don’t like the overboard cake face looks, I like natural looks. A bit of eyeshadow or a signature lipstick is nice, too, but I wouldn’t exactly wear full face every day, just because I am too lazy, haha. How is it about you? I am just learning about 20-60 makeup looks and getting into makeup, really, so this is a start for me. I like it and I felt good with it. I love wearing lipstick, even if I don’t wear anything else, I think it makes everything more extraordinary, but on that day I just opted for lip balsam from l’Occitane.

This is what I used:

Catrice HD liquid  coverage foundation (blended it with a foundation brush)

Bronzer from Catrice in my cheekbones

Highlighter also from caprice on the top of my cheeks and under my eyebrows

Highlighter-pencil (old) on the inner corner of my eye and lower waterline

Mascara 30-day treatment from Kiko only on my upper lashes

Well that was it and I think it’s a good start, what do you think?

Much Love

Hey Friends,

this is my first beauty-post on this blog and so this is also my kickstart to pamper myself more and try around makeup and stuff like that. I think this looks quite nice and I have been loving wearing lipstick (even to school), but I have to admit, I haven’t had any on in weeks, so let’s get back to that! Normally I don’t color in my eyebrows and if I would, I wouldn’t do them as strongly as this, but I wanted to achieve a Audrey Hepburn-like look, so I played around with what I had at home. And what I had was eyeliner in brown. I don’t think it is the ideal product to use, but it did the job, just to test it! My lashes are naturally quite curly and long, but I like to enhance it even more by applying some mascara. This one is by Kiko and it is supposed to nourish the lashes, instead of break them. Last year I wore a Maybelline mascara nearly every day and it really made my lashes shorter, they only grew to my normal length, when I made a mascara pause. But they looked really good, like fake lashes, but unfortunately, not very healthy. On my skin I wore the BB Cream from The Body Shop, which adapts to your skin color and I really like the texture of it, it’s very creamy and it is so easy to apply with the fingers. Very spreadable and it also cover a little bit, my skin definitely looks more radiant and clear after I applied it. My lipstick is also from The Body Shop, and I am planning to grow my color range this year.

What is your favorite or everyday makeup-look?
