And I was going to do a make-up tutorial about the look above but my sister (I always ask her opinion about things first) told me it looked a bit too ordinary. I do agree with her, so I decided to just use the pictures to share an easy tip: how to get a matching eye liner.
I came up with this look because I wanted to use some of my Sleek eye shadows that never looked very interesting to me. But when I was almost done, I was a bit annoyed that I didn't have an eye liner that would match the colours. So this is what I did:
It's super easy :) Just take a white eye liner, lightly press it into your eye shadow and then you're ready to apply it. It doesn't harm any of the products and it stays on perfectly. I mixed it with a few different kinds of eye shadow to make sure the colour would match, you just have to play with it a little. But I think this is awesome if you want to match the eye liner with your eye shadows like I did, or if you just don't feel like buying an eye liner in every possible colour out there.
So, if you don't have a white eye liner yet, go get one! I definitely consider them as a must-have :)
Besides the basic base coat and top coat, this is what I used:
BarryM nail paint in Bright Purple, Essense 3 in 1 nail polish in Fatal & BarryM nail paint in Shocking Pink. Then last but not least: a toothpick!
When I was painting my nails it was too dark to do any 'step by step' pictures, but it's very simple to do. First you apply a few coats of the pink nail polish (I needed 3 coats this time) and then you dip the toothpick into the black nail polish and draw messy circles and little dots on your nails. (Just Google a picture of a leopard print for reference). At the end you take a new toothpick and dip it into the purple nail polish, then you use it to fill in those circles and voilà: you have leopard nails :)
It doesn't really compare to Konad, but I did get some compliments :P
Anyways, time to get started!
Step 2: When you're done with that, you can start applying white eye shadow. It doesn't have to be super white, an animal isn't purely white either :) Oh, and don't forget to put some under the eyes as well.
Step 4: Now it's time to create the leopard print. For now you can use an ordinary black eye liner. I noticed none of my liners would make nice dots, so at the end we will do something to make them more visible. But in this stage creating a pattern is good enough :)
Step 5: When you're satisfied with the pattern (don't forget to include the bottom of your eye) it's time to colour the waterline. It's important to keep the outer corner pretty dark, that's the wild side of the eye :P
Step 6: Now you can take some grey or silver coloured eye shadow and just press it against the outer corner of your eye. You want the print to kinda 'melt together' in that area.
Step 7: Time to curl the lashes and apply mascara.
Step 8: Now, you're not ready yet with the mascara. Remember that we would make those spots prettier? Yup, mascara is actually perfect for that. You already created the pattern, so now you only have to press the tip against those eye liner spots.
Now the spots are a lot more visible. You're done!
Rawr! Here are a few more pictures :)
So yeah, the jar itself is pretty big, this one will probably last me for months! Besides raspberry they also sell mango and cocos. The body creams are from the Fruit Line, which also comes with a body lotion in the same scents. All the products are for normal skin and not too expensive. The body creams (200 ml) are around 3 Euro and the body lotions (250 ml) are 2,50. (that's around 4,10 dollar/2,68 pounds & 3,42 dollar/2,24 pounds)
What really surprised me, is that the substance is pretty thick. It's kinda a mix between a cream and a body butter. The first time I tried it I used too much and it got a bit greasy, but luckily the skin absorbed it pretty quickly. I mainly used it has a hand cream the past couple of days and I'm pretty pleased with it. It smells less intoxicating on the skin than it does in the jar, even though my stepdad claims he can smell me anywhere I go :P
But I really like this one, the packaging is cute and it does the job well. I bet I'll be using this all the time when the weather gets nicer, it's perfect to give your skin a little boost :)
Earlier today I was playing around with my make-up and taking pictures of some new products I bought so I could review them later. At some point it felt as if I was doing a tutorial, so I thought: why not? This is my first time doing such a thing, so it will probably look a little silly sometimes. I had a lot of fun doing this though!
Well, Here it goes. I’ll be showing you pictures of the products I used, then a certain step you need to do using that sort of product and finally a picture of the result. Oh, and I waited with putting concealer on after I was done, so don’t let my sleepy eyes scare you :P
Step 1: Yup, first you prime your eyes.
Step 2: Take a black eye shadow (this one is from the curious palette by Sleek) and create a black base with it. As you can see, I also got some eye shadow on the bottom (clumsy me) but it won’t hurt the final result ;)
Take one and place it from the corner of your eye to where your eyebrow ends.
Step 5: Pick a purple eye shadow & apply it above the black base.
Step 6: take another black (a matte one) and a shimmery bronze, you will apply this over the black base. The second black goes in the corners, the bronze goes in the middle.
Step 7: Take a red ish brown and use it to blend the purple and the black together.
Step 8: Time to remove the tape!
Now you can colour the waterline.
Step 10: Curl your lashes and apply mascara (I used my new one, I’ll review it later!)
And then…you’re finished!
Here are some more pictures of the final look: (In the last two pictures I highlighted the inner corner of my eye with white eye shadow, but that’s optional)
