Make-Up of the Day: Green and Gold Eyes

Hello my lovelies :) 

I wanna show you the make-up I wore today, since it turned out better than expected :) 


I did a gold and green kinda smokey eye and paired it with some neutral soft pink lips with golden shimmer as well. 
To get some gold color on the lips I just took the same eye shadow I used on my eyes, applied it on my lips as well and put the lip gloss right over it :) 



All the products I used:

Face

Kiko Mat Base Corrector Primer 
L'Oreal Perfect Match Foundation W3 Golden Beige
Essence All Day Concealer 20 Soft Beige
L'Oreal Nude Magique BB Powder Light Skin
Sleek Contouring and Blush Palette Fair 372 (only Bronzer)
Catrice Duo Blush 020 Peach Sorbet

Hope you like it!

I'm trying to use more of my palettes and create colorful make-ups because I just have so much stuff and I really should use it:P 
The reason I said it turned out better than expected is that usually gold eye shadow isn't as opaque as I would like - but I just put P2's golden eye liner under it as a base and it turned out how I wanted!
Also the eye shadows are just amazing, but that's why I love to use Sleek palettes ;) 

Thanks for reading! 

See ya soon <3

*Late* Nail Art Monday - Tape accent nail

Hello my dear readers!

*EDIT: I suck as a blogger ... I wrote that post yesterday and forgot to post it ... I'm sorry for the delay, again^^ *

Today I have some simple nail art for you - an accent nail with rhinestones and geometric design, that I achieved by using tape :)

The base for this mani is P2's No Matter from the "Winter ... who cares?!" LE I showed you yesterday!


For the accent nail I used Essence - Snow Alert (from the Mountain Calling LE) and 3 rhinestones. I topped it all off with a thick coat of TC. 

My plan was to do all nails like that, but then I thought It may be a little bit too much and I also didn't wanna cover up that gorgeous blue ;) 

How do you like it? Let me know!

Thanks for reading :*

Sunday Swatches: P2 - Winter ... who cares?! Limited Edition Polishes

 Hello my lovelies :)

Today I have some absolutely gorgeous polishes for you! When I saw them in the store, the first thing I noticed was that cute bottle design that reminded me of christmas tree decorations :D
And then I saw all the glitter *-* It was like nail polish heaven in that moment! So I just had to buy them all ... you understand me right? :D

But look for yourself:


These are the 6 polishes from P2's new limited edition collection "Winter ... who cares?!" - the name is pretty funny as well, like "who cares? I'm gonna rock some cool polish even in the winter! Hell yeah!" Just my motto ;) 

So let's take a closer look at each one:

010 - I don't care!

This is a pinkish red jelly with small and big white glitter in it. Even after 3 coats it is not fully opaque, but the application is flawless and easy. All the polishes have a slightly thicker consistency, so it may be good to use them over another more opaque polish instead of applying 3 to 4 coats.

020 - Never mind!

This one is a beautiful purple jelly with small and big white glitter in it. This one is pretty much opaque after 3 coats and the application was just as flawless as the other ones. 
This is one of my favorites! :) 

030 - Even now!

This is a white jelly with the same glitter in it as the other ones - and the most beautiful thing about this polish is the fact that it looks like snow! I don't know why but the white glitter in the white jelly base just remind me of winter and snow, so it is perfect for the next months! 
I already have a nail art in mind with it ;) 
Good application just like all the others, but this one isn't really opaque after 3 coats either - but that's perfectly normal for jellies :) 

040 - Play up!

This is a gorgeous bright pink jelly with big and small white glitter in it. Application is flawless, but opacity is not fully there after 3 coats. 
I don't wear pink very often but this one looks so pretty on the nails and kinda reminds me of candy - I don't know why :P 

050 - For that reason!

This one is a light grey jelly with white glitter in it, application is just as good as the other ones and it's almost opaque after 3 coats. 
I have to be honest, I took this polish just to have all 6 of them, so it is not one of my favorites but it still is pretty nice :) 

060 - No matter!

A beautiful blue jelly with white glitter in it, flawless application and almost full opacity after 3 coats. 
It is my absolute FAVORITE of this collection, I mean look at it - it reminds me of a night sky with thousands of stars ...absolutely gorgeous :) 

I have to say I am in love with this collection! There are so many things you could do with these polishes and I love the fact that they are jellies! They are very glossy and paired with the glitter it gives them such a deep look, that I just adore :) 

One bottle of polish costs 2,25€ here in Germany and contains 15ml of product.

Tell me, which one is your favorite? 

Thanks for reading and see ya next time :)

How to make your brows wow! - An Essence Review

Hello my lovelies!

This post comes later than expected, but editing took a little bit long :P 
Today I wanna review one of the make-up boxes I bought from Essence last week and I also can show you how I fill in my eyebrows at the same time, yay! :) 

Warning! Picture Spam ahead! ;) 

First take a look at the box itself, the packaging is so cute, I love it ! 


I have to admit, the packaging of these boxes from Essence were the main reason why I wanted to have them at first! I mean, just look at it, even the mirror is not just plain and simple :) 

The box itself comes with 3 different shades of brown and a highlighter. It also contains a little tweezer, a double-ended applicator and a little guide on how to do your eyebrows.
The tweezer is always good to have, although I have to say this one feels pretty stiff and cuts the hairs rather than pluck them (small minus point if you really need them).
The applicator is ok, although I prefer an angled brush with a longer handle, so I took one of mine instead of the one it comes with - but that's just my personal preference ;) 

The 3 shades you get are exactly what you need! I can't talk for blondes obviously, but even the lightest color "love blondes" looks pretty good to me. 
I personally combine the darkest color and the medium one, just to get a more natural look :) 


Let's start with the brows! In the picture above you can see my natural brow without any products on it - just for you to see what I'm working with.

Just to make it clear - the following steps are just the way I fill in my eye brows, it may not be the perfect or the only way, but that's how I do it :P 


Step 1:
Take an angled brush (the one from the box or your own) and start filling in your lower part of the brow with a darker shade (I took "love brunettes"). Try to follow the natural curve of your brow, but of course you could also make it more straight or little bit more arched, just like you want it. 
Fill in the end of the brow with the darker shade as well.

Step 2:
Taking the lighter shade (in my case "lov' em all"), start filling in the rest of your brow with really soft and short strokes. Sometimes I alternate between the ligther and the darker shade, just to make it look more natural. 


Step 3:
You could just let the brow the way it is in step 2, or - like I love to do it - also create a line on the upper part of your brow (with the darker shade again) to make it look more crisp and defined. 

Step 4:
Again, this step is optional! Take your favorite concealer and apply it underneath your eyebrow - this way you once again define your brow more and also are able to correct some mistakes you possibly did. 


Step 5:
Just blend the concealer out with your finger or a small brush.

Step6:
If you used a concealer it may be enough as a highlight for you, or you can just add a little bit of your favorite highlighter to your browbone (here I used "lift me up!" from the box).
And that's it! You are finished :) 

And here is a full face picture, just because it looks different than just one brow :P 


All in all I have to say I really like this make-up box! The colors are nice and easy to use, the box itself is a pretty addition to any collection and the price is very good as well.

It costs 5,95€ here in Germany and contains a total of 6g of product. 

What do you think? Do you already own this box, or do you now plan on getting it? 
I would also love to know if some of you fill in their eyebrows totally different..or maybe not at all? 
Let me know in the comments! :) 

See ya soon with some pretty swatches ;) 

Thanks for reading! <3
