WEDNESDAY VIDEO│ Bye Bye Tired Eyes!

Hi guys,

Sorry for the lack of activity on my site. A lot of stuff has happened, which made me pull away from all work for a while.
I will tell you all about it in a post very soon – but for now, I just needed to be offline.
That’s why there wasn’t a Wednesday Video last Wednesday, which I’m sorry for – but I just couldn’t do it.

BUT, now I’ve made you a quick little tutorial with some tricks and tips to get your eyes looking more fresh and wide!
I was super tired when I was shooting the video, so I though – why not make a video that makes me look more fresh than I am?

Here it goes, I hope you will enjoy it!

WHAT I USED

Concealer
Shape Tape, Tarte

Setting Powder
Diorskin Forever & Ever Loose Powder, Dior

Eyeliner
Faux Whites Eye Brightener, NYX

Mascara
Paradise Extatic, L’Oreal 

I hope you could use some of my tips – please let me know what you would like to see next!

Okay, you’ve probably seen this palette before on my feed.
But I love the colors so much – it really is all about the heat.
These colors remind me so much of these LA days, its so hot and even though I’m trying to enjoy it, I run for the shadow.
I love how these colors blends so nicely together and the shades are unreal. It really puts me into a specific mood.
I wanna play a little bit more with them and use some of the darker shades and the sparkling ones.
So if you own this palette, let me know if I should make a special tutorial or look for you!

For this look I used two products that I’m a huge fan of right now.

WHAT I USED

Naked Heat Palette, Urban Decay
I used the colors Sauced, Low Blow and He Devil.
It’s a matt dusty beige for the whole eyelid, a more burnt beige/brown for the crease and a reddish/burnt brown for making definition in the ender of the eye.

Paradise Ecstatic, L’Oreal
My favorite mascara right now – I don’t even have to curl them or anything.
They gets such a nice curl with volume and length!

I hope you liked it.

Nothing beats a red lip. It’s bold and beautiful.
I’ve never been afraid on putting a bright red color on my pout a Monday morning – so you shouldn’t either!
But I know it can be difficult trusting that little devil red color.
What if it gets stuck on your teeth? Smudged out everywhere on your white dress – or ending on another persons mouth after a great snog? I know, there are tons of reasons why the red lips is a bad idea, that can ruin your day.

.. but, there are actually some red lipsticks out there, that can win your trust back.
This one, is my most loyal badass red lipstick I own. I don’t even think about it when I’m wearing this cool girl.
She will let me sweat on the dance floor all night, kiss all the guys I want – without leaving a trail and she will never smudge off!
She’s my sidekick, and I love her.

Always On Liquid Lipstick by Smashbox

I’m wearing the color, Bawse, which is a deep red color.

I love the name, ‘Always On’, cause it will literally stay on forever.
Are you still having a hard time trusting your lipstick?
Then you can watch the video tutorial I made, where I give tips and tricks on how to make your lipstick stay on.
You can see the video HERE

I hope you like this liquid lipstick just as much as I do.
They have a range of cool colors, so go and find your match!

WEDNESDAY VIDEO│How To Get That Glow

Finally my Wednesday Video is up again!
I talk a bit about why it’s been two weeks since I uploaded my video – so sorry.
But this is a video about getting the right glow, which works for both summer and winter time.
I’m using a lot of products in the video, so don’t get scared – but as always, you chose which products you think would work into your own makeup routine. I never use all of them, I’m just a normal human being as well.
Sorry for the awkward frog angle on the camera and the bad lightning – its hard for me to find the perfect filming spot in our new apartment here in Los Angeles. It will get better, I promise.
I look a little bit like a bimbo in this video – crazy blonde hair and tanned skin, I know.
