NEW YEAR'S EVE USING SUGARPILL'S AFTERPARTY

Hey! 
I wore this make-up a week ago to a party and thought it would be the perfect look for New Year's Eve! 


First step: 
 Apply a blue base or a coal pencil to your eye lid 

Blend the top edge (I'm using Real Techniques' deluxe crease brush)

It should look something like this  

Apply SUGAR PILL's AFTERPARTY to your created base 

Also don't forget to apply it to your lower lash line, too! 

Apply a darker blue to your outer V-area (DON'T BLEND!) 

(...) 

You can apply a dark cole pencil to your lash line and blend it with a black eyeshadow, curl your lashes and apply mascara and you're done  

 OR...

You apply some lash glue, blue glitter (by Grimas)  and some lovely fake lashes(Ardell- Luckies)  like I did

DONE!

Thanks for reading <3

FINALLY! BUTTER LONDON!

Well, hello, hello!
Okay, here is the thing: I AM IN LOVE!Yes, I am.
And I know some of you will think "come on, relax! Butter London isn't that new anymore so stop freaking out!"
But I don't care, finally one can get those fantastic polishes in Germany and THAT'S why I am so excited! 


 Left is "LADY MUCK" and right "KNEES UP"
"LADY MUCK" is a beautiful light grey color with tiny sparkles to it 
"KNEES UP" is a very beautiful shimmery red (reminds me of christmas!)
It's one of the 4 christmas edition varnishes so I'd say it's a limited edition.

Thanks for your time<3

KEEP YOUR MAKE-UP CLEAN!

Hey lovelies!
You might be thinking 'why should I sanitize my make-up when I am the only one using it?'
Because:
-You might be sick someday
-You might have an eye infection or herpes
-There might be other germs on your make-up
which all could make you sick again someday or cause a reaction.
I clean my make-up after every use with 'Beauty So Clean Cosmetic Sanitizer Mist'


I got it with 'Beauty So Clean Cosmetic Sanitizer Wipes' and 'Beauty So Clean Conditioning Brush Cleanser' (which I don't use at the moment!) at TMS 2011 Berlin


So, how to use it?
After I used any eyeshadows or other powder or cream products, I spray them with the sanitizer mist so that they get a bit damp, let it dry (takes only a few seconds!) and my products are sanitized.  For pencils and lipsticks I use the wipes.
Just take one out of the wrapper and wipe over your products, done!

Thanks for your time! <3

BYE BYE WHITE HEADS AND PIMPLES!

Hello hello, Mario Badescu!
You all know the situation: you wake up in the morning and overnight your skin decided to ruin your day by sending you a pimple right on your forehead/nose/chin... 
I've been introduced to this little wonder by Andrea Meyr  (MUA Maske Berlin) at 'The Make-Up Show Eurpoe' and you know what? 
IT WORKS!
I only used it on pimples so far but it totally worked for me.

How to use: 
-You must NOT shake the solution!
-Dab a cotton swab into the pink sediment
-Dab on pimple and let dry (overnight)
-Wash off in the morning
DONE!
By the next day your pimple will be dried out.
(To be honest, it is pretty hard to get it here in Germany, i searched for it on ebay and amazon for an hour til i found someone who would send it to me ('Beauty and Basket' on ebay)  but it was worth it!)
Ingredients: Isopropyl Alcohol, Deionized Water, Calamine, Camphor, Colloidal Sulfur, Salicylic Acid, Glycerin, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Talc.
It is vegan (as far as I can tell by the ingredients) and 'not tested on animals' <3

Thanks for reading xoxo

OCC LOVE! LOTM (Lip Of The Month)

Dear 'OCC' aka 'Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics',
I LOVE YOU!

Because:
-You've got a range 36 (!!) lip colors
-You stay on throughout day  
-You smell nice
-You are incredibly pigmented 
-You are VEGAN! 

Thank you! 

So this is my favorite lip of the month (actually wearing it almost every day since a few weeks)!
It's OCC's STRUMPET (darker color) mixed with ANIME (super bright pink!)
I really like it with a classic 50's eyeliner which makes it a modern interpretation of that look!

SUPER MATTE FACE

 "Face To Face SuperMatte Antishine" 
This product is a transparent cream which 'can be used under make-up or simply on its own'.  
True that! 
I applied it under my make-up around 7:30am when getting ready for work (first picture) and it kept my face quite matt until the end of the day (no touch ups til 6pm! )


    Pros:
  • keeps skin matt
  • nice natural smell 
  • nice application
  • a little goes a long way
  • 'supermatte anti-shine is free from all animal content and animal testing'

    Cons :
  • foundation goes on more difficult 


Do I like it? YES! Though my forehead got a bit shiny (after 10 hours in a hot café!) it still is a very good product and it will help you to stay matt longer without constantly having to touch it up!


xoxo
Alex

My first blog entry ever!

Well, hello there!
I've got a little story to tell you:
Once there was a small-town girl from Germany who was very into make-up.
Her name was Alexandra and when 'Alex' found out that 'The Make-Up Show' would come to Berlin, she got very excited, it was like a dream come true!
Little Alex met many lovely people but one girl especially  inspired her: beauty and fashion blogger Felicia Walker Benson from  www.thisthatbeauty.com .
In a small group of about 10 people, Felicia answered questions and talked about how to become a successful blogger.

 3 important things she taught us:
  • treat your blog 'like a business'
  • be passionate
  • be humble 
I want to thank you for inspiring me, you were so kind and lovely.
So my first blog entry is dedicated to you, Felicia.
It was a pleasure to spend some time with you talking and laughing and being inspired by you <3
