Simple School Makeup

I'm guessing school have started for most people now, or will start soon. And that probably means that you have to get up earlier and not have as much time for doing your makeup. You might also be quite tired and want to make yourself look more awake and fresh. That is why I wanted to share this makeup look with you today. It is a simple look and it only takes about 10 minutes for me to do.

Firstly I just wanted to give you a couple tips for how to make you look more awake when you are doing your makeup;

  • Use a very light eye pencil (or white but it can look a bit harsh) in your waterline and a light eyeshadow in your inner corners. This will help to open up your eyes which makes you look more awake.
  • Use a blush with a little shimmer in it because the shimmer will help making your skin look more healthy. Now if don't like shimmery blushes, then don't use it. But I personally think it's pretty, especially when you skin is looking tired and dull. Alternatively you can use a matt blush and a highlighter or your cheekbones if you have a matt blush you want to use but also want a little glow/shimmer.
  • If you have time, then a winged eyeliner is something that also helps with opening up your eyes. It  doesn't has to be dramatic in any way. Just a thin line with a little wing will do the job. 

This is the look that I did and I really feel like it just makes me look awake and fresh which is the whole point of it. The only thing is that I am an winged eyeliner girl and I did not use eyeliner with this look and the reason to that is that I wouldn't always have time for eyeliner when I went to school. (I feel really old when I think about that I'm not in school anymore..) So basically, I would like this look more with a winged eyeliner but if you don't have time, you don't have time, and I still do like this look and it is one that I do quite often.

Here you can see the eyeshadows more. I guess you could say it's a really easy and natural smokey look.

So how did I achieve this look? Well, I started with my base and for that I used the beautycycle oil free foundation (I don't know where you can buy this, I got it from my mom who bought it when she was at a friend who had a makeup artist coming over. Sorry... But I really like it so I wanted to use it). My MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC 15 and my Kicks Powder in Translucent (which I'm running out of) and for blush I used the Wet n Wild Colour Icon blush in Pearlescent Pink. I did not use a bronzer this time but sometimes I do and when I do that it is the E.L.F. Cool bronzer I use.
I filled in my eyebrows with the Soap And Glory Archery Brow Pencil.
For the eyes I primed them with the Too Faced Shadow Insurance and then I used the Wet n Wild Colour Icon Palette in Comfort Zone.I first applied the colour in the top left hand corner on the inner half of my eyelid and as a highlighter in my inner corner. Then I applied the brown colour two steps down from the first one on the outer half of my eyelid and then I blend them together. I finished the eyes with the IsaDora Inliner Kajal in Blonde and the Maybelline The Rocket Mascara.
Lastly for my lips and wanted something natural that doesn't matter if it wears off and that is easy to reapply so I want for the E.L.F. Lip Balm SPF in Peach just to give my lips a little bit of colour and also moisturize them.

How do you like your makeup for school?

beunuki Everyday Chronograph Watch

I have never been one to wear a wrist watch. I don't really know why, I'd just rather wear braclets and look at my phone if I want to know the time. Even though I never wore them I've alwas liked them on others.
Then one day I somehow found beunuki's instagram page and fell in love, and luckely for me, it was my birthday a few week after I found this online store so instead of buying a watch myself I whished for my favourite one for my birthday and I got it from my sister and her boyfriend!

This is the one! Out of all the watches they have this is one of the most simple ones, and that is what I like about it. It has a simple faux white leather strap and the actual clock is also white with rose gold details. What I think makes this simple watch special is that the numbers are roman and it has other details there aswell that I don't know that to call. Those details is what I like about it and I think it makes it more interesting. That is what realy like when it comes to style. Simple things but with a something little more.

To be honest, I am not a rose gold fan. I prefer the normal yellow gold. I did one time found a neckalce that I liked that was rose gold but when I held it against my skin I felt like it really didn't go well with my skincolour. Because it is so much white on this watch and the rose gold is only in the details that is not a problem. I really like it on my skin. I actually think I like it more than I though I would when I first found it. Yeah, I love this watch!

Summer Everyday Makeup

When I say "Summer Eveyday Makeup" I mean the makeup look that I wear on an everyday baisis when I'm going to town, going shopping or something like that. I do not mean a makeup look that''s compleaetly waterproof that you can wear if you are going to the beach. When I go to the beach I don't wear any makeup at all because I just don't see the pint of it.
A lot of the products I use have changes lately when it has gotten warmer and the look is a bit more bonzed.

I wouldn't say my skin is oily but it is more normal to oily or combination now on the summer and because of that I have been liking the The Body Shop InstaBlur primer which helps my makeup stay on better and longer and it is also a bit mattifying. After that for foundation I use the MaxFactor All Day Flawless in Warm Almond. That is a great foundation for the summer months because it gives medium to full coverage depending on how much you use and you could mix it with your moisturizer if you want a lighter coverage. MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC15 is the best concealer I have used. Not much more to say about it really, it's just great. To set all of that I use Kicks Powder in Translucent.

I'm not the biggest bronzer girl but I have gotten more into it since I got the E.L.F. Cool Bronzer because it does not look orange at all, so I have been using it everyday for the summer. What blush I use changes from day to day but in this picture I have used the Wet n Wild blush in Pearlecent Pink.

For my eyedrows I have been using the Soap And Glory Brow Archery. I find that for me I get a more natural look to my brows when I use a pencil instead of a powder which I have been liking latealy.

Too Faced Shadow Insureance to prime my eyes as alwaws and then their Chocolate Bar. The colour Milk Chocolate (top row) in my creas and Marzipan (second row) all over the lid. I usually highlight with the colour Venus from the Urban Decay Naked Basics. I do my winged eyeliner with the IsaDora Glossy Eyeliner and I finish the eyes with Maybellne The Rocket Mascara. If I feel like it I will tightline with the Lumene Sensitive Touch Automatic Eyeliner in Deep Black and use the IsaDora Inliner Kajal in Blond on my waterline.

For my lips I most of the time use my L'Oreal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss in 912.
