Quick-Fix Faux French Mani

IMG_0280

I haven’t been painting my nails a lot recently, don’t get me wrong I love a good mani. But a good mani does take me about 90ish minutes ( two episodes of Grey’s Anatomy for reference). With Uni I rarely find myself having time for two episodes of any TV show in a row, never mind being patient enough to go through the whole perfect (homemade) mani procedure.   Continue reading

New Year’s Resolutions: Skincare

Ever since moving to a different city I’ve kind of neglected my whole skincare routine a lot. It all started with my exfoliating toner running out and me not repurchasing it, I then stopped using flannels/ muslin cloths on an everyday basis because I didn’t want to throw them in the washing after a days use and quite frankly I don’t have enough clothes to fill up a washing machine every week. So instead of being confronted with not having any cloths left because their all dirty, I stopped using them all together. Stupid I know! Continue reading

Some Nudes in a Season of Reds

IMG_0256

A few months back I wasn’t into that whole nude lip look, let alone lipgloss. But somehow I’ve really gotten into enhancing my lip shape and making it look as best I can in the most natural way. Whilst I do still have my issues with the uber sticky “last-all day” lip glosses I do enjoy a smooth hydrating balmy sort of lipgloss nowadays and it seems that as time has gone by the makeup industry has really grasped that whole “smooth buttery lipgloss” thang.  Continue reading

4 for killer cheeks

IMG_4949

Sorry for being M.I.A the last couple of days. I had a stressful few days plus I didn’t really have anything exciting to tell you about. I don’t ever want to post about something I don’t personally love and enjoy at the moment, because I feel like that affects the quality of the content and the post overall.

But I’m back now, and I wanted to share my personal favorite way to create ‘dem killer cheeks’ with you.

Perfume Sample Hoarding

IMG_4946

When beauty shopping you will always be given a lot of samples. This has gone so far for me that I can’t even sort out which ones to use and which ones to leaves, leading to me ignoring them all together. Even worse, I fear that I might like a product sample where the actual product will be out of budget, so I just don’t even test it. Continue reading

Top 5: Make-up Brushes

IMG_4943

 

When I actually have time to properly do my makeup, brushes are of course the most important tools. I could work without them, but why? If I can make my life so much easier and mess free. I do have accumulated a few Brushes over time, but if i could only chose 5, these would be my picks. When I thought of this post, I didn’t even bat an eye when piecing them out of my stash that does say something.

Always At Hand

IMG_4926

 

In a perfect world I’d always carry an amazing large bag around with me to fit everything I need. Yeah well THAT is not the case for me. Firstly I do not own a gorgeous large bag, still on my “Once I earn enough money”-List, secondly I’m way to lazy to actually carry a heavy bag full of shizz I won’t need anyways around with me.

So no big make-up/ toiletry bag for me, at least most of the times (There is of course the odd exception!) But there are a few things I always Always make sure to grab and throw in my bag, no matter how big or small. Continue reading

One-Swipe Wonders

IMG_4913

Keeping with yesterdays theme of lazy day makeup I thought I’d do a round up of the best most fuss free shadows in my collection. Often times they are the saviors that will have everybody thinking about how much effort you put into your makeup, when really you just did the usual “grab swipe and go”. Best thing about these shadows: All you need is your finger and preferably a blending brush of your choice, to soften and blend the edges..but even that you could use a finger for. Add lashings of mascara, and you’re good to go. Continue reading

The “Can’t decide which one” Blush

 photo output_WSxemU_zps4fadd838.gif

So when I actually decide to get up that 20 minutes earlier to put my face on, a lot of the times I just can’t decide what products to use.

That’s probably one of the reasons I skip makeup on lazy exam days. Just being so overwhelmed by the variety of brands and colours, my half-asleep behind can’t wrap it’s head around that.
But there is the odd occasion when I do need to look acceptable or I really want to feel pretty for once.

Now I’ve heard many Beauty Gurus talk about this gem, but living in Germany (It’s impossible to get a hold of most beauty brands over here. grr!), I did not have the chance to try it out.

I’m talking about Tartes Amazonian Clay 8H Blush in Exposed of course.
