Party/Clubbing Make Up Look ♥


Hello Everyone! 
Today I want to show you a different side of me *dandandan* lol no joke, I just wanted to try something different, a sexy club look. 

This is not really my style.. but I've haven't been able to wear a different kind of makeup for a long time. This look it's mostly about bold sexy lips and cat eyes, it's really easy! so.. let's start!



Face/Cheeks/Lips:

  • ELF Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder in Warm Tan
  • Kiko Colour Explosion multi-tone blush in 02 Quirky Pink
  • MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Girl About Town
  • MAC Studio Tech Foundation in NC25
  • Etude House Baby Choux Base in 02 Berry Choux


Eyes/Brows:

  • Maybelline The Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara
  • Maybelline The Colossal Kajal eyeliner in Black
  • MAC Impeccable Brow Pencil in Dirty Blonde
  • Brow Compact bs443
  • Biological Concealer Pencil n°440
  • Garnier Roll-On Concealer
  • Different shades of brown eyeshadows

 How to:
  • Apply the Baby Choux  make up base for a smooth and moisturized skin.
  • Then, Apply the MAC foundation.
  • Apply the liquid concealer underneath your eyes in a triangle shape, then blend it with your finger to cover your dark circles. Also, you can use it to cover your red areas.
  • Contour your cheek bones with the ELF Bronzer. (I don't like how the contour looks like on my nose so I'm just going to use it on my cheek bones)
  • Mix the lighter and the darker shades of the Kiko Blush and apply it on the outer part of the cheeks trying to avoid your apples (you know, we're not trying to look cute, we want a sexy look this time) 
  •  Then highlights your cheek bones, the bridge of your nose and your chin with the white shade.
  • Eyeshadows:
    •  Apply a light shade  all over the lids and blend out. Don't forget to apply it on your brow bones.
    • Apply a light brown shade in the crease and blend it.
    • Apply a dark brown shade in the outer corner and slightly blend it
  • Use a white eye pencil, or a concealer pen in this case, and apply it on the bottom line of the eyes to make your eyes look bigger.
  • Make a bold line with the Maybelline Kajal Eyeliner on the eyelid. Don't forget the wings. 
  • Apply mascara on your lashes, you need to create a dramatic effect.
  • Then, with a brow pencil and a brow compact, after brushing your brows give them a shape that suits the shape of your face.
  • After Moisturizing your lips apply the MAC Lipstick in 'Girl About Town' you're going to need bold lips for this look.




( I couldn't take a proper picture of my eyes, I'm sorry)
Anyway, now you just need to style your hair, wear a dress and go!
This is the final look, what do you think about it?
I need to say that I don't usually go out like this, I wear less eyeliner, less eyeshadow etc but I wanted to try something different this time.
So.. I hope you enjoy this look, don't forget to leave a comment below, I really want to know what you think about it :)

・ Review + Swatches ・Etude House Rosy Tint Lips (06 English Garden)







Hello everyone!! :) ♡
 I apologize with you all because It's been more than one month since my last post due to my exams etc ><
But I'm back and today I want to show you something that looks really lovely! (but it's quite disappointing for me)
I'm talking about the popular "Rosy Tint Lips" 7g (0.24 oz.) by Etude House from the collection ‘&Rose’  
A creamy and velvety lip tint that comes in a hard tube (a super hard tube)
Well, I have to say that I'm  not a huge fan of this product, the colour range it's amazing and I love them all, in fact It's been really hard to just choose one, but the texture it's quite eww.. I mean if you have dry lips you really can't wear it! (or try to exfoliate or moisturize before applying it, but I really do not recommend you this product) They say about it " It will stay on
without dryness or stickyness" okay, it's not sticky but surely makes my lips super dry. 
Also, it's really hard to squeeze the packaging to get the product out (well, at least for me since I have the same strength of a sloth) Anyway, I've got the shade number #06 called "English Garden" (written like this; 6호 잉글리쉬 가든) it's a pale barbie pink, I really like this shade even if I think it's too pale for me, but I think there are other shades like "Before Blossom" and "Sweet Poison" which are definitely better. Also, I find quite unhygienic to use it directly from the sponge (which is hard as well) so I prefer to apply it with a lips brush. 
The other good thing, apart its really cute packaging and their gorgeous colour range, is that it's really long lasting, after drinking and eating it was still perfectly there :)
So.. overall I'd say I would love to try a different shade but I'm not sure If I would really buy it again... I mean Etude House makes a lot of amazing products so I'd probably prefer to try another thing. What about you? what do you think about it? comment below and let me know

IT
Ciao a tutti!! :) ♡
Inizio scusandomi con tutti voi perchè non posto da poco più di un mese a causa di unviersità/esami/ecc.. ><
Ma sono tornata con un nuovo post e vorrei parlarvi di qualcosa di veramente molto carino (ma che mi ha un po' delusa)
Sto parlando del "Rosy Tint Lips" 7g (0.24 oz.) della Etude House che fa parte della collezione ‘&Rose’  
Una tinta labbra cremosa e vellutata contenuta in un pack di plastica (durissimo)
Beh, devo dire che non sono una grande fan di questo prodotto, la gamma dei colori è incredibile, sono tutti bellissimi infatti per me è stato davvero difficile sceglierne solo uno, ma la texture è un po eww.. Quello che intendo dire è, se avete le labbra secche questo prodotto è da evitare! (o almeno se proprio volete provarlo dovete almeno esfoliare e idratare le labbra prima di applicarlo, ma lo sconsiglio davvero) Cosa dice il brand al riguardo " resta sulle labbra senza seccare o attaccare" okay, non attacca ma di sicuro ha reso le mie labbra secche. 
Inoltre, è davvero difficile far uscire il prodotto dal tubetto di plastica, faccio davvero molta fatica (anche se ci tengo a precisare che ho la forza di un bradipo..)
Comunque, Il colore che ho scelto è il #06 chiamato "English Garden" (scritto in coreano così; 6호 잉글리쉬 가든) è un pallido rosa barbie, è davvero un bel colore anche se trovo sia un po' troppo chiaro per me, avrei potuto scegliere colori più belli come "Before Blossom" e "Sweet Poison" che almeno dalle foto sembrano migliori. Trovo inoltre poco igienico applicare il contenuto direttamente con la spugnetta che si trova in cima al tubetto (anch'essa solida) preferisco quindi applicarlo con un pennello per le labbra. 
Un altra cosa positiva, a parte il pack davvero carino e la loro fantastica gamma di colori, è che è davvero a lunga durata, dopo aver mangiato e bevuto era ancora perfettamente al suo posto :)
Quindi.. alla fine direi che mi piacerebbe provare un altro colore ma non sono sicura di ri-acquistarlo... Alla fine il brand Etude House fa dei prodotti fantastici (infatti è il mio preferito) preferirei quindi provare qualcosa di nuovo. Voi cosa ne pensate? Lasciate un commento e fatemi sapere ♡ :)
