Review of Make Up Store products & Festive Makeup Look

Heyy Beauties,

So last weekend I bought a couple of products from the brand 'Make Up Store', you can see what I got HERE. I tried out these products the day after, and the following is the look that I came up with.

Using 'Make Up Store' products
For the main color I used the color Aquarius. The first impression I got as soon as I applied this color is WOW!! I never had a color so vibrant and that transfers the same as seen in the pan. I have to say, this has become my new favorite eyeshadow. Pity that this type of color cannot be worn with every outfit :( Also, it stays on for quite a long time. Obviously with time it fades, like every other eyeshadow, but on the whole I am content with the quality of this eyeshadow.

For the other colors, I blended in some black in the outer corner, a white shimmery color in the inner corner and on the brow bone and a light blue color in the crease. 

 As for the lipstick I used the color Made in Style also by 'Make Up Store'. I was also impressed by this product and I have been using it every day since I purchased it. 

Made In Style Lipstick
 First off, I love this color, it is so unique. Furthermore, it has a matte finish therefore it prolongs its longevity. When I wear it to work, it stays on for the most part of the day, approximately 6 hours. The best thing is that since it is such an intense color, it still leaves a tint after it wears off. In this look I did not use any lip liner. I just prepared my lips with a lip balm and then applied it. 

That's all for today,

I hope you like this makeup look, 

Happy Holidays,

Take Care,

Jessica :) xxx

My Favourite Lip Combination

Hello Beauties :)

These past few weeks I have been wearing bold lips every time I go out, I think they brighten up every outfit and makeup look. In my opinion I think the perfect bold lip is MAC Magenta lip liner together with MAC Rebel lipstick. They make up the perfect pair :)

This is how I apply it:

Step 1:- Before applying the lip liner, always apply your favorite lip balm first so as to moisturize your lips and to have a smoother application and in the end a better color outcome. This step should be done for every type of bold lip that you decide to wear. It makes a big difference.

Step 2:- Apply the Lip liner around the perimeter of your lips and also fill in the entire lip. This will help to make the lipstick color more defined and prevent the lipstick from feathering throughout the day. In this case I applied MAC Magenta Lip liner. The reason why I apply the lip liner all over the lip is because when the lip stick fades the lip liner leaves a tint so you do not need to keep re touching your lip stick all the time.

Step 3:- Apply the bold lipstick of your choice to your lip. I prefer to apply straight from the tube because I find that the color payoff is better this way when compared to applying the lipstick with a lip brush. If I do any mistakes I arrange them by applying some concealer around the lip. In this case I applied MAC Rebel lipstick. You could also choose to apply some clear lip gloss to have a shinier finish, but in this case I prefer a somewhat matte finish, I think that the lip gloss is too much.

I hope you like this Post, if there are any suggestions for future post please leave them in the comments section.

Take Care
