Essence-ial Eyeshadow Palettes

As much as I love dramatic makeup, my heart beats for neutral colours. They’re easy to wear, always flattering, and actually quite exciting with all the different undertones. When Essence came out with new eyeshadow palettes in their latest product update a while ago, I fell in love with them straight away. Two especially caught…

Poison Ivy

I was inspired by Taya from My Little Beauty World for this look. She’s doing a Halloween series, and the moment I saw her Poison Ivy, I started getting ideas. Being a huge Batman fan, it was only natural to make my own version of my favourite female villain.

Light in the Darkness

If I haven’t mentioned it enough yet – I love gold. Everything looks better in gold. It’s such a luxurious finish, it exudes both power and warmth at the same time. What I love even more is the combination of gold and black. They couldn’t compliment each other any better, one with complete lack of light and perspective, and…

A Golden Haul

I’m surprised how many new brands we have gotten here in Slovenia recently. The selection is still quite limited compared to other countries, but it seems we’re at least getting somewhere! Golden Rose, a Turkish brand, is one of the new arrivals, and I was naturally attracted to their counters because of a massive selection of…

Shaping the Future

A while ago I entered a competition on Maybelline Slovenia’s Facebook page. The challenge was to use the imgination and create a futuristic look. When I think of the future, I always think of statement shapes with clean lines, and silver and purple when it comes to fashion and makeup, so I went with the later…

Etude House My Beauty Tool Secret Face Brush 121 Skin

If you follow makeup updates regularly, you may have noticed a new type of brushes becoming more and more popular: the “toothbrush” foundation brushes. Ok, they’s not officially named liked that, but the similarity is definitely there. They aren’t a new concept, in fact they are quite the vintage item. MAC also released a set a couple of…

Ripe Plum

I’m surprised how much documenting my looks for this blog is helping with my creativity. Maybe it’s pure chance I happen to be feeling more motivated, but I’d like to think feeling slight “pressure” at the back of my mind about having to post something is the main reason. I brushed over my love for duochrome eyeshadows in…

Strawberry Tarte

I made a point of stepping out of my comfort zone with my eye looks recently, because I could easily wear the same two shades of brown day after day. Or rather month after month … As today is the first day of Autumn, and the first brown leaves have already fallen from the trees,…

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

I’ve been on an asian cosmetics kick lately (THEY HAVE SO MANY NICE THINGS). As I also needed a new mask, and the asian market seems to be obsessed with those, I browsed through the virtual beauty aisles to find the perfect one. After reading many positive internet reviews, I decided on Innisfree, a brand I’m already…

IsaDora Build-Up Extra Volume Waterproof Mascara

I used to wear regular mascara on a daily basis ever since I started doing makeup. For some reason I avoided all waterproof versions, thinking they would be too harsh on my lashes and too stubborn to remove at the end of the day (I admit, I’m lazy and don’t like fussing with cotton pads)….

Lady in Red

I love dramatic looks. Not for everyday life, but every once in a while when I have extra time and feel motivated, I love bringing out my theatrical supplies and transforming myself into a new character. I bought this wig a few years ago and it’s been my favourite ever since. Combined with cabaret inspired makeup,…

Vitamin C Serum

I’ve been hearing about vitamin C serums for years, but never paid much attention to them until this year. Not really sure why. As I was browsing the cosmetic shelves of a store some time ago, I stumbled upon a discount one. There aren’t many such serums readily available around here, so I was intrigued. Its claims…
