Makeup Look: I Wear Stars on Smokey Eyes

“Why I keep buying things that I don’t really need?” said to myself while trying to arrange my makeup storage.
Here is another collection of star-shaped glitters I got from Daiso and have not opened it yet. Why not to use them in some makeup creation!

The stars come in 6 different colors and thought that the gold ones would look nice on a dark olive green eyeshadow. Looked around and found the amazing MAC cosmetics Spellbinder eyeshadow in Cosmic Clash . Spellbinder eyeshadows were limited edition last holiday season and I really wish they add them to their permanent collection because of their unique pigmentation and texture. They are magnetized loose pigments and with one sweep of the eyeshadow, I did this intense smokey eye look without any base or primer underneath!

To give a gradient smokey look I buffed the edges with a clean fluffy brush. For the more 3D glamorous look I added to the center of the eyelids some bronze shimmers by Makeup forever- Diamond Powder.

To apply the stars I used my finger tip to press them gently one by one over my lids. I loved to add also some gold circular-shape glitters got them from Daiso too. Completed the look with several coats of mascara and a pair of wispy eyelashes ūüėČ
Not to forget that this makeup look is inspired by my all time favorite makeup artist Linda Hallberg .. Would you wear this makeup look in real life?

Hope you like it!
Love Xx

New Beauty Trend for Eyebrows
Did you know that you can use a bar of soap as the only product to fill in your eyebrows for a fuller bushy look! Yeah .. a bar of soap and spoolie that’s all that you need!

Soap Brows Hacks

In order to achieve this new brow trend all you need is a clear soap bar and a spoolie. I start by wetting my spoolie with warm water and work it into the soap bar till it forms a little of a clay.

Then brush my brow hairs upwards to give them a feathered texture. I like to wait for a couple of minutes clay dries and seal up my brow hairs.

You can already see that my eyebrows look thicker. I like to finish it with feathering some hair-like strokes using Benefit Ka-Brows cream gel in shade 2 to fill in any missing spots in my brows. And Traaaaaa! My eyebrows look bushy and natural just like the eighties brows of Brook Shields.

meet matte review makeup

Makeup Product Review: TheBalm Meet Matt(e) Nude Eyeshadow Palette

Finally had the chance to meet Matte the nude from TheBalm Cosmetics, which Always catch my eyes with their cute characters labeling their products. This all-matt neutral eyeshadow palette comes in a very nice and funny packaging with the handsome Matt smiling on the cover.

The palette material is cardboard, which makes it super lightweight. But I am not sure how durable it would be in a long run. There is an amazingly big mirror fitted on the inside of the cover. I barely use another mirror when I am doing my eye makeup with this palette.

The Palette consists of 9 eyeshadow pans that are really HUGE! Maybe because size matters as TheBalm claims ;). I loved the shadows colors, their pigmentation and texture are very good. I have to say the only thing missing in this palette is a deep black to be a perfect complete matte eyeshadow palette!

The swatch of Meet Matte Palette

Let us take a look at the shadows closely and their swatches:

  • Matte Johnson: a charcoal grey¬†with cold undertones. It‚Äôs a rich dark color, perfect for deepening the looks, smudging eyeliners or even using as an eyeliner on its own.
  • ¬†Matt Garcia :¬†plummy mahogany. one of my favorites shades I use it to define my crease outer corner.
  • ¬†Matt Malloy: a matte ivory white shade. It looks very strong in the pan, but comes off a lot softer. Perfect as a brow bone and inner corner highlighter.
  • ¬†Matt Rosen:¬†a med-tone warm brown and a very nice color.
  • ¬†Matt Wood: a dark cool brown. Matt Wood is the darkest color in this palette, it doesn‚Äôt look almost black, but it‚Äôs really dark. It can easily be used as an eyeliner.
  • Matt singh: a ¬†mid-tone seashell peach. A great transition color and to blend out all shades together.
  • Matt Abdul: a perfect taupe¬†color. It would make a perfect smokey eyes !
  • Matt Lombardi: a yellow beige shade. Great for neutralizing the lid color or just worn as a lid color with deep color in the crease. Even works as a transition shade.
  • Matt Hung: a dark grey with a plum undertone. A very beautiful color and one of my favorites in this palette.

I simply love this palette! I wear it on my eyes almost everyday, and I agree with some beauty bloggers who is naming it as one of the best “all-matte” eyeshadow palettes.

If you are someone who likes matte eyeshadow palette, this one is definitely a must have for you.
