Pop of Pink: Eye look

Hey Beauties,

I have been experimenting with different eye shadow colors lately, and this is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy.

Pop of Pink eye look
Step 1:

I applied NYX Jumbo eye pencil in ‘Milk’ as a base, so as the shadows stay on for longer and result in the color being more vibrant.
76 eye shadow palette

Step 2:

I chose a hot pink color and applied a number of layers all over the lid. 

Step 3:

Next, I applied a very dark blue color in the crease and blended it out. Make sure the blend this color with the pink so as not to have a harsh line between the two colors.

Step 4:

Subtly, I applied a black color in the outer ‘V’ of the lid and also on the lower lids, to create more depth to the eye look and blended it.

Step 5:

Next is eyeliner, I decided to wing it out for that cat eye look, after which I applied mascara to the eye lashes.

Step 6:

Applied quite dramatic false lashes and applied NYX Jumbo eye pencil to the inner tear duct and brow bone as highlight.

That is all for the eye look, one can adapt it to one’s own tastes and preferences, however in my case I really like dramatic and dark makeup.

Until next time,

Take Care,

Collective HAUL

Heyy Beauties,

How are you all doing? :)

As promised on our Facebook page, here is a Collective Haul of products I bought online.

First off, I had been contemplating for quite a some time, to buy some false lashes and good lash glue. So, I went searching on e-bay last week and found the Duo Lash glue, that everyone raves about on Youtube and some lashes. I found the glue for 7 euro including shipping, and 10 pairs of lashes for about 3 euro with shipping. Great deal in my opinion.


Last Saturday I was browsing around the ELF Cosmetics site and I noticed that they were offering free shipping during that weekend, therefore I could not pass up that opportunity and bought some ELF products, since it was about 6 months from my last ELF purchase.

My first two choices were two lipsticks, Gypsy and Flirtatious. Love both colors and I have to say I was impressed by their quality; very pigmented, apply smoothly and also have a pleasant smell.

Gypsy and Flirtatious

The following are swatches of these two lipsticks:


Then I chose two blushers and a bronzer because I noticed that I really do not have almost any blushers and bronzers, and the only one I had broke. The first blush is Blushing, then Bronzed and Sun Kissed.

 The following are the swatches, in order mentioned above:

Next, I decided to try out the Makeup Remover Pen, that Dyna at Dyna's Random Blog, raves about, and I must say it really does work. Last but not the least, I picked up and Angled Blush Brush because I needed one for contouring.

Those were all the products that I bought,

Hope you enjoyed this post,

Until Next time,

Take Care,

Jessica :)

What's in my everyday make up bag?

Hi beauties,

I keep my everyday's essentials in a small Makeup bag on my vanity, since it's much easier to reach in the morning rather than going through loads of products.

E.L.F Mineral Infused Face Primer

This primer is amzing. It helps to keep oil at bay, therefore no retocuhing is needed throughout the day.

Rimmel Match Perfection in shade 040 Soft Beige

I use this concealer under my eyes to conceal my under eye circles.

Urban Decay Primer Potion

I use this primer in order to keep my eyeshadow stay put throughout the day.

Sigma F30 brush

With the sigma F30 (a large powder brush with the powder), works perfectly to set my concealer and mattify my face.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder  

Inglot 330M (Matte)

This eye shadow is a light beige. I use it in the inner corners and brow bone.

Eyelash curler 

Rimmel Glam Eyes Day 2 Night mascara

I'd curl my eyelashes first, then put on mascara.

NYX Blush in the shade PB03 Angel 

I apply my blush with a small stipple brush in order to achieve a natural finish.

What's in your everyday bag?

Take care,

Sephora duo eyeshadow review

Hello Beauties,

Today, I will be reviewing 2 SEPHORA duo eyeshadow.

Hot Brown No3
Gorgeous Pink No4
I own Hot Brown No3 and Gorgeous Pink No4. Each duo was on sale for 3 so I couldn't pass this up. The packaging is very sleek and sturdy. According, to the SEPHORA website these shadows are described as ''A duet of highly pigmented, long-lasting, exclusive shadows that reinvent color intensity''. In fact these shadow are highly pigmented and true to colour however not long lasting as stated. These eyeshadows creases without a primer within 2-3 hrs of wear. With Too Faced Shadow Insurance (an eyeshadow primer) the eyeshadow held for 8+ hrs. I didn't experience any fallout with these shadows. These eyeshadows blend very well with each other as well as other brands shadows. All shadows have the right amount of shimmer.

I would recommend any duo from this collection.
