THE BRUSH GUARD

Aloooha!!
Let me introduce you to something, you probably already know! Haha! But I just "recently" got my hands on this little helper (actually a few months ago but forgot to blog about it) and I quite like it!

*drummroll*  It's "The Brush Guard" *yaay*
ALTHOUGH I think they are much too expensive they are still a must-have!
I really like to use them after washing my brushes to keep the shape (keep in mind they will dry longer!) 
They come in three different sizes to fit every brush head. There is a very thin one for linerbrushes, two bigger ones for eyeshadow-/lip-/concealerbrushes then two for a bit bigger ones (those fit brushes like Real Techniques setting brush) and one for the really fat ones (powder, blush, kabuki, ect).  I will be doing a video on how to do your own brush guards soon (didn't forget you, Juli!) so keep checking my blog (oh this will be my first video! Of course in English) if you want to see it. Very simple and cheap

UPDATE! IN 4 WEEKS I'LL BE...

Hello beautiful people,

I've got exciting news: in exactly 4 weeks I'll be off to the UK for one year!
I found a lovely family to stay with and take care of three beautiful children! 
I am so thrilled as I love the UK and this will be the first time I will be away from home for a long time.

Going to be in Surrey and just about 40mins away from central London *-*


So yeah, that's one reason why I've been busy the last few weeks.
Still have many posts to prepare and took many pics so I've not been tooooo lazy lately.

Sending much love to y'all<3

BOSSY BOOTS

Tagchen!
Don't think I've introduced you to Butter London's BOSSY BOOTS properly. Apologies for that!
My mom hates this one and is always complaining why I like to wear it that much, haha!
Just like every Butter London polish this one is very pigmented and you only need 2 coats of it to have an opaque application.
It's a pastel mint green (which I like a lot at the moment! Used to hate pastel) 
Not streaky, not gooey -> Yes, sir! 

sending looove,
xoxo

YELLOW EYES

LOVE LOVE LOVE PIXIWOO!
They come up with so many cool looks!
But this one is a re-creation of a Tom Ford visual 
(click HERE to see the video!)
I personally love make-up that you normally wouldn't wear on a daily basis and this one is one of those to me!
It's just so different from the stuff that I usually wear, the eyes are very much blended, there are no harsh lines and the colour is just gorgeous! I especially like it with very pale skin and no blusher but contouring.
Oh and I am aware of the fact that this kinda make-up makes you look sick (but that's just what I like about it!)
You certainly could wear it with a tan but that's not what I went for.
 So this is what I used:
-Hour Glass Foundation in NUDE
-Sugarpill pressed eyeshadow in BUTTERCUP
-Lime Crime pigment in CIRCUS GIRL (inner corner and lid)
-Lime Crime pigment in NYMPH (inner corner) 
-Mascara
-Eyebrows
DONE

SIMPLE EYES PERFECT LIPS

Halloooo!
I saw this pic on FB today, thought it was stunning and sat down to recreate it. 
It took me 25 minutes and is super easy!
Since the lips are soo perfect the eyes are kept simple with just a bit brown/greyish eyeshadow, black coal pencil in the eye and mascara.
Her foundation is flawless and there is no blusher but a bit contouring around the cheeks. 
For the lips I used OCC's NSFW mixed with a bit RX (actually a bit too much RX, it turned out too purple but looked brown in the picture) and applied it with a concealer brush by bdellium (you gotta be careful with those little OCC guys, they stain EVERYTHING! My green brush is now red and blue.)



                                                  (I look like a goth in those pics, haha!)

ORLY

Heya!
I've just recently bought those two boys: KISS THE BRIDE and OUI. 
Though they did not blow me out of my socks they are still good (I'm just too spoilt by China Glaze atm!).
KISS THE BRIDE is a beautiful opaque soft pink shade.
OUI is a purple with a ton of golden glitter to it and it reminds me of China Glaze's MIDTOWN MAGIG (my fave. atm!)
Unfortunately I find ORLY varnishes do chip quite fast (booh!)
Well, that's all for now.
