EOTD: Soft smokes

Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday! 
On Sunday I showed you my newest palette called the "Flawless" palette by Revolution. I created a copper/pink look that day but realised soon enough that I can pretty much create any look I want to with this palette, there are simply so many different textures, shades and tones.


I love my soft smokey eyes, where I use lighter colours in the crease and go darker towards the upper lashline. No need for winged eyeliner and nice, gradually faded shadows. Today I decided to do one of those looks using my Flawless palette. I used green and silver eyeshadows for this look.

I think it looks really sophisticated and it doesn't even take that much work - however - blending is key in looks like these!

Have a look!


Some close-ups! 


Thanks for reading!
Have a lovely day!

Revolution Flawless palette ♥

Ever since I've lived at my boyfriend's place, I've only had one make-up palette at hand. I've been creating looks using my beloved Urban Decay Naked palette. Being the make-up addict that I am, I saw the opportunity to get a second one, after all, using thesame palette for two months can get a bit boring.
I went to the store and to my surprise almost immediately found a palette that I liked. This palette is the Revolution "Flawless" palette.


The packaging of this palette is very shiny and very gold. The 32 eyeshadows inside the make-up palette are also shiny (for the most part) and most of them are warm-toned as well.


The next pictures are two close-ups of the palette. I like this palette a lot because it has both warm and cool tones, light and dark shades, shimmery eyeshadows and mattes.


This palette is gorgeous, I can assure you, but it also needs to be good quality. Below you can see one of the looks I have created using this palette. This look was made using the cranberry and purple shades in this palette. I don't go for pink and purple very often, but when I do, I like to make it dramatic.
I was very surprised by the quality of the eyeshadows. The lighter shades do need some building up, but the darker shades (even the matte ones) have good pigmentation.
I was very surprised by how the shimmery colours popped on my eyes. I also didn't get any fall out, which is always pleasant!

 
 


Here are a few full face pictures! I'm very happy with the look and the palette. I think it's a good deal, you get 32 very nice eyeshadows in a drugstore palette that has a lot of variety. Keep reading for more!


Thanks for visiting! Have a good one!

My daily make-up look 2017

Hey guys! How have you been? 
I have done "my daily make-up look" posts  before, but I don't think I've updated it the last couple of months. It might even have been a year since I last showed you a look. While I was getting ready today, I figured I might as well show you what I have been using.


I only got my hands on the Urban Decay Naked palette a few months ago. Finally I got to see what the hype was about and I can now completely understand why all of the Naked palettes have been so popular and successful. Not a big surprise that this palette is the only one I like to keep at my boyfriend's house. 

I haven't done a review on the Urban Decay Naked palette because I felt like there were already plenty of reviews out there on the Internet. However, I have used it nearly everyday and the eyeshadows are great to work with. I also love the variety of colours because you can really get creative and try a bunch of different looks.
I have about four different looks that I like to create with this palette. This one that I'm showing you today is my favourite.


This look is a very sweet, girly and subtle look. It shows that you did put time and effort in your look, but it's not in your face like a smokey eye would be. This look is pretty much suitable for any occassion. I wear it on dates, I wear it to work or to go grocery shopping and I even wear it to go out.


I used "Naked" in my crease and later on darkened the outer corner using "Buck". Next I applied "Toasted", the rosé eyeshadow all over my lid and darkened the outer "v" with "Hustle", a purple eyeshadow that complements the pink perfectly. I also brightened the inner corner with a dusty light pink colour called "Sin". I used the lightest shade "Virgin" as a browbone highlight.

A new 'do!

Hi everyone! 
April has been the month of changes: I have started a fulltime job, I am moving out of my own apartment and moving in with my boyfriend- and because all of that wasn't enough,
I also changed my hair colour! 

I've always struggled with damaged hair due to all the different colours and I think the blonde/white might have been a bit too much for me to handle. I've now gone back to my natural hair colour, which is dark blonde/light brown.
I'm also going to keep you updated on my hair routine and tell you which produdcts have kept my hair healthy! 


I hope you have fun today and get to eat a lot of chocolate Easter eggs!

H&M Glitter Dust review

Hello everyone! How have you been?
 
Today's review is a review that I've been looking forward to for a while! Although I like to keep my eye make-up on a daily basis quite neutral, I love to experiment and do something extra every once in a while too.
 
When I go out, when there's a birthday or any other special occassion, I like to go for a make-up look that stands out. Sometimes that means a smokey eye but recently, I have been loving glitter.
 

I got this loose glitter named after Catherine Wheel at H&M.
 

Here's what a tiny bit of the product looks like on my wrist. In the picture below you can see what it looks like if you 'swatch' it.
I think the glitter is really pretty. You do need a good base or some nice glitter glue to get the desired effect.
 

 
Below you can find a picture of when I did my friend's make-up. We both have thesame eye make-up look and even though the light is quite bright, you can really see the glitter pop! Lovely!
Add some eyeliner, maybe some false lashes, and you're ready to go!
