I just cannot remain with the same style for over a fortnight. I had some fun with hubby and he says : No you are not capable of wearing a Mohawk haircut!
That meant the top departure for me😀😂
I ordered fake lashes from Wish. They come without the glue, so be sure to order it too.
I was surprised by the quality. Today I put on the violet lashes and topped my make-up with turquoise lipstick by Nyxcosmetics and green and yellow marble eyeshadow from Wish. I was quite unhappy with the eyeshadow because it came all broken. I was ready to put it into the bun but finally I kept it.
Today, I am going to give a quick tutorial on contouring with photos. The first step of a good contour is complexion makeup. That means primer, colour corrector if needed, concealer, foundation and setting powder. Evening out your skin tone and setting it properly will allow for a smooth contour and overall flawless look. You can use liquid or powder foundation, my preference is liquid. Make sure your complexion products match your skintone and work well for your skin type.
Once you have set with powder, you can start using your powder contour products. I always start with a bronzer but you can also use a matte bronze tone from a contour kit. To figure out where to place your bronzer, touch your face and discover where your cheekbone ends. You are going to place your bronzer above that, blending it onto your cheek to warm up your face, add dimension and serve as a base for the next contour colour for a seamless look. I always bronze my chin starting behind my ear.
You can also bronze your forehead if you desire to minimize it.
Last, you want to add a shadow colour right where the cheekbone ends and blend it up into your bronzer. The use of warm and cool tones together will create the illusion of a shadow and a popping cheekbone as well as a slimmer face. I am using a cool tone contour colour from a Kevyn Aucoin palette but any will do.
And there you have it! A simple contour. If you desire to have a stronger contour, you can always add a darker shadowy tone or use more product. Here is the finished result on my face:

This morning I was in the mood for a glamorous make-up which makes me think of Barbie dolls.
Foundation doesn’t change. BB cream by Garnier and loose powder by K von D.
Brows : draw my brows with a dark brown pencil.
Eyes : two tones of pink, very light for a base, vibrant pink for the crease and violet for the outer edge. Glitter eyeliner by Nyxcosmetics and violet eyeshadow under the eye. Lashes with rhinestones by Kiko. By the way, I have worn those lashes for 4 whole days and they are still in shape as when I opened the package.
Lips : light matte pink lipstick.
I bought the eyeshadow and lipstick on Wish for 2€ each + 2€ for shipping. I like the quality. It stays a whole day in office.
Saturday I finally tried my new thingies I received. I like the postman when he brings my gifts …. Which I ordered and paid …. 😂 As it takes several weeks to get orders from China, you can be sure that I forget. So it’s always like Christmas when I receive a long forgotten order.
I have never ever used faux lashes. I thought them to be too expensive and too difficult to put on. I read several blogs and tutorials and finally got me this glam pair with rhinestones. The glue is included in the package
You need a pair of tweezers to handle easily your lashes. Put the lashes on your lids without glue to get the good length. I was lucky, didn’t have to shorten the lashes. If you need to, you simply cut them with scissors.
Whooooooo nowwwwww the part which I thought especially difficult. Put the lashes on your lid just in line with your own lashes. Easy peasy.
One eye done!
And I used my patterns for brows with the brows gel from Anastasia Beverly Hills
Already Thursday and my thirst for weekend is growing!
Sun is out today. It begins to warm the skin. Yesterday I saw an amazing outfit at Etam : all in pastel colours, a midi skirt in a fluid material, a large ekastic waistband with golden sparkles. This looks like a belt. It was paired with a pastel pink sleeveless top. I would love to wear this two pieces with my golden rose sandals I received recently from Justfab.
Now for today I just did a golden rose make-up with pink lips.
I should receive my brow patterns tomorrow. I’m so excited to change the style of my brows easily.
What are your colours for the sunny days?
Comment below and let’s exchange.
🌈Wish you a fabulous day my loves💋
I want to be rich. Rich in love, rich in health, rich in laughter, rich in adventure and rich in knowledge. You?
