Unboxing - February Goodie Box

Image
Hello ladies, February is the last month of winter so that means no more sitting on the couch with cookies and ice cream, and a good romantic comedy. It's time to focus on strength in all its forms and this "Powered by Goodiebox" gives us the means to do it. The box contain products that give super powers to hands, hair and nails, as well as pampering that helps fight discoloration and tame even the wildest highlighter. "We also hope that the box can inspire you to find. even more of your inner power and explore what strengthens and drives you in everyday life - from the inside out. For strength comes from within, as you know, but a little pampering on the outside never hurt anyone"  - Goodiebox Team Luxie Medium Fan Brush - premium soft, synthetic bristles encased in a rose gold ferrule atop a chic pink handle, build with hypoallergenic, high-quality, vegan and cruelty-free materials.

Hello ladies, I apologize for my absence, a quick trip back home and the fighting a flu, kept me away, and just yesterday I got around to edit the pictures for this look, I did a couple of weeks ago. It is not your regular pink/purple/red Valentine's Day look, but in the spirit of complete honesty, I do not celebrate Valentine's Day. That does not mean I am not in love or that I do not know what love is, it just means that I do not think that love can be celebrated in one particular day. Remember to love yourself first and be kind and loving to everybody else every day! πŸ’— EYES : MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre Urband Decay Distortion Palette in Blackout Urban Decay Naked Palette in Naked Alterra Kajal Eyeliner in  Black L.A.Splash Hydro Liquid Shadow in Silver NYX Slide On, Glide on, Stay On Eye Liner Pencil in Platinum MAC Pro Longwear Fluideline in Blacktrack L'Oreal False Lash Superstar Mascara in Black Eylure Cosmetics Londo

Moody Fashion Photoshoot

Image
Hello ladies, Today I want to show you the last photo shoot of 2018, that took place just before Christmas. It was a really cool photo shoot. And when I say cool, I mean freezing cool, as in  -3 degrees (real feel -5 degrees), with some serious wind blowing, on the rooftop of a very beautiful Copenhagen hotel (Manon les Suits). After about 2 minutes you could not feel your fingers while wearing gloves. Our beautiful model, Ivana Kriskova, faced the cold weather in the name of art, and for that I want to thank her kindly, because the photographs turned out spectacular. Of course, some of the credit goes to the talented photographer Karel Vokral, for capturing the beauty and charm of the city. As for the makeup, I keep it simple, enhancing the natural features of Ivana, but playing with some pop of color. Despite the cold weather, low light and the short time available for this photo shoot, the people involved in this small project were amazing, the atmosphere co

Gumdrop

Hello ladies, Anybody who knows me, knows I do not do pink, except as a pop of color or in combination with purples or blues. But, as I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone, I try to challenge myself  and push my own boundaries. Gumdrop, a bright matte fuchsia pink with cool undertones, from Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Palette is the star of this look. I do not hate the look, but as you can tell from the pics I do not really feel it. But that is fine, it is just makeup, and I am trying to have as much fun as I can with it.   EYES : MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Palette in Gingerbread Latte, Lookie at my cookie, Sugar Daddy, Gumdrop and Figgy Pudding Pupa Vamp!

Egyptian blue

Hello ladies, This look started as a navy blue smokey eye and ended up being this golden eyeliner with graphic lips. The finished look has a bit of an Egyptian makeup vibe that I quite enjoy. Plus the combination of dark matte navy blue with a bright metallic gold feels like a match made in color heaven. If the blue lipstick is a bit much for you, of course you can do a nude shiny lip gloss, as you can swap the gold eyeliner for the classic black, or forgo the eyeliner completely.   EYES : MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre Juvia's Place Mini Masqerade Palette in Burkina Juvia's Place Magic Mini Palette in Kesi, Yejide and Ife Melkior Eye Shadow in Gold Metal (as eyeliner mixed with Inglot Duraline) L'Oreal Superstar False Lash Mascara in Black Suso Premium Lashes False Lashes in Katie – Maybelline  Tattoo Brow, Brow Pomade in 05 Dark Brown Maybelline Brow Drama 12 H Sculpting Brow Mascara in 01 Transparent FACE: Yves Rocher Elixi

Spiced Rum

Hello ladies, Have to admit something to you, brown neutral colors and not my thing. But as of a few months back I started to reach for them more and more. Could this be a sign of me changing ? Of maturity? Am I coming in to my own? Neah! But I have to say that Spiced Rum, from Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Palette has something something. It is a deep bronze with a hint of silver sparkles, that are a pain to catch on camera but looks amazing in real life.  😍🌟✨ EYES : MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Soft Ochre Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Palette in Gingerbread Latte and Spiced Rum Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette in Charmed, I'm sure Urban Decay Naked Palette in Virgin and Naked Melkior Eye Pencil in Black MAC Pro Longwear Fluidline in Blacktrack L"Oreal Superstar False Lash Mascara in Black Elise The Art of Beauty False Lashes in 774 – Maybelline  Tattoo Brow, Brow Pomade in 05 Dark Brown Maybelline Brow Drama 12 H Sculpting Brow Mascara in 01
