EOTD: Purplish

Hi there! 

Today's look is a darker fall look. I decided to use dark eyeshadows instead of the usual liquid eyeliner.
I used two palettes to create this look; my MUA "Undress me too" make-up palette and my NARS "Mélusine" eyeshadow duo.

I started off by applying Essence I ♥ stage eyeshadow base on my eyelid. Then I applied tape on the outer corner of my eye to get a really clean, sharp edge. This is optional, you don't have to do this if you don't want to. (It is a really good guide for liquid eyeliner by the way!)

Next, I applied "Lavish" in my crease and I darkened it up by putting "Obsessed" over it. I blended it out and applied the purple eyeshadow from my NARS eyeshadow duo.
After applying and blending the purple, I decided to apply a little bit of "Corrupt", which is the black eyeshadow from the MUA palette.

The key to a beautiful look is to keep blending and re-applying eyeshadows until you are happy and you have a nice, gradual fade.
After achieving this, I applied "Shy" on my browbone as a highlight and I applied the silver eyeshadow colour from my NARS palette on the lid.

Next, I applied mascara. The one I used is by Essence.

This is what the make-up looks like on my face! I love it! It's so different to not wear eyeliner for once, but I think I'll do this more often!

Thanks for reading!
I hope you have a great day!

Weekly Diary

Happy Sunday everyone! How have you guys been?
My week has been quite busy, but I also had a lot of fun this week!

I went out to get sushi for the first time in my life. My friends and I wanted to grab a bite after school and somehow we ended up in a sushi restaurant.
It was really good! I had so much fun!

Some letters arrived at my new place. I love writing letters and I love that this is like a "conformation" that I actually live on my own now.
Speaking of living on my own, it's been over a month now and I'm still alive! I miss my family and my pets sometimes though, but it's fun to learn how to depend on yourself.

I got myself a little new "diary". When I was a kid I used to keep diaries all the time and I enjoy reading them over sometimes, but over the years I just stopped doing it. So I'm trying it again now! I found just the right notebook too, isn't it gorgeous?!

I also worked for school. A lot.
It's intens, but at least now I'm doing what I love!

I also got myself a little bonsai tree for my studio. I love plants and flowers and even though I have a little tree already, I decided to get another one! 
I also practiced my photography already, this tree's leaf was my "subject"!

What have you been up to?
Have a good day!

EOTD: Soft autumnal look

Hello everyone! Happy Saturday!
Today's make-up look is a quite simple, it involves soft colours and a lot of black eyeliner.

When I started making this look, I actually though the eyeshadow colours would be darker. Not that it's a fiasco that they weren't. 

I made this look using an Essence palette that I had bought quite a long time ago, but I forgot that these eyeshadows aren't very pigmented - that's why I prefer using the palette in spring instead of fall.
I like fall because in fall you get to wear darker make-up, and I think that looks very sophisticated!

I primed my eyes using my Essence I ♥ Stage eyeshadow base and then I applied the three neutral colours from this Essence palette right here (click here and here). I used the lightest eyeshadow on my lid, the middle eyeshadow in my crease and the darkest eyeshadow in my outer corner.
I blended everything out until it looked flawless and then I put on eyeliner.
I put on both liquid eyeliner, kohl eyeliner and mascara (all by Essence).

This is the finished look!

What do you think? Do you like this look?

OOTD: Autumn Red ♥

Hello everyone! I'm back with another outfit of the day!
This one is very different from all the previous ones I've posted this month! The sun has disappeared and instead we got a lot of rain recently, so that's why today I'm not wearing a skirt.
I will try to make more pictures outside, but obviously with the rain it wasn't possible.

The sweater that I'm wearing in this post is actually a little too big. I think it's very, very comfortable though! Whenever it's rainy, I tend to wear a lot of black, so this outfit is quite dark!
I paired this with black skinny jeans and sneakers. My purse and my coat are also black and grey.
Even my make-up look was smoked out! I made a dark purple eye look!

To spice up the outfit a little bit, I put on one of my favourite statement necklaces by H&M.
I also had some "arm candy" going on!

Sweater: H&M
Bag: H&M
Pants: H&M
Coat: H&M
Necklace: H&M
Earrings: New Yorker
Watch: New Look

Have a lovely day!

EOTD: Fall has fallen ♥

Hello you guys, happy Thursday!
Today's look is a fall look! It's October which means fall and winter are coming! Normally I'm not a big fan of red/cranberry colours, but today I decided to give it a go! 
I used about five MAC eyeshadow colours. 

So I started by priming my eyelid with Essence I ♥ stage eyeshadow base.
Next, I applied MAC's "Paradisco" (light pink colour) in the inner corner of my eye, "Amber Lights" (gold) in the middle and "Coppering" (copper) in the outer corner of my eye.
The amazing thing is that all the eyeshadow have some gold in it, which makes it fit together beautifully.

I blended all the eyeshadows very carefully and re-applied eyeshadow when it had faded from blending.
In my crease I used "Texture", which is one of my favourite eyeshadow colours. I darkened up the outer corner of my crease with "Espresso", which is another lovely eyeshadow by MAC.

Red eyeshadows can make you look sick very easily, so be careful when you use it.
I always like to apply black liquid eyeliner because black neutralises the red a little bit. Aside from black liquid eyeliner, I also used black kohl eyeliner on my lower waterline.
A little bit of mascara... and done!

Have a lovely day!
