Semi-Natural Make-Up

A nice classic semi-nude face is my fave type of make up!
A plump pink of brown lip, with a classic eye in bowns :)
this is the kind of make-up I will wear to school, when I can be bothered haha.

First things first, it's just like baking a cake, tools and ingredients. Or in this case, Brushes and Make-Up!
You don't need to have the exact brushes, or the exact make-up, the ones below work best for me personally is all. Also keep in mind that you May, and in many cases will need different colours than me!! 

The Brushes !! :)

Left: Napoleon Perdis Blusher Brush
Right:  Napoleon Perdis Foundation Brush

1: Napoleon Perdis Large Eye Shadow Brush
2: Napoleon Perdis Small Eye Shadow Brush
3: Napoleon Perdis Lip Brush

The Make Up :) xx

Starting at top left going clockwise (Right)
- SportsGirl Get Cheeky Blush
-SportsGirl Lip Jam
-Napoleon Perdis Palette in Champagne
-CoverGirl Foundation for Normal Skin in Buff Beige
- DB Black Mascara
- Savvy By DB Eyeliner Pen
-Australis Lip Pencil in Bashful.

Steps :) xx

1. Start by applying your foundation, working from the nose to the outer frame of your face. Don't put too much on the forehead as it can start to look cakey and dry (even though it's not). If you have pimples or redness, feel free to cover with a concealer. (I don't tend to use it, which is why it isn't in my routine)

2. Add a little bit of blush to the cheeks, not too dark. Only so it is slightly noticeable!

3. Pic 3 browns from the palette that suite your skin tone, keeping in mind that you will need a lighter, medium and darker brown. The colour can be close, but do need a noticeable difference.

4. Start with the medium brown, and cover the full lid, finishing just before the brow.

5. Then take the darker brow, start from the outer corner of the eye and work the brown up alone the  crease of the eye, finishing 1/3 of the way along. Also do a bit along the outer, upper lash line :)

6. Finish with the lighter colour on the middle of the lid (where the pupil would sit if the lid was closed) and a bit on the bottom of the outer third of the brown. Also a thin line of eyeliner across either the bottom or upper lash line. I recommend the upper though. :) And a dash of mascara to the lashes :)

7. All that's left is the lips! Line and fill with the lip pencil and add some of the lip Jam with the Lip brush. All done and ready to go for a light and breezy day !!

Hope you love this look :)

Wasp Hair Decorative Lashes :)

So I have been doing a few face charts lately, as I'm slowly teaching myself make-up for photography. I decided to work with some fake lashes, but I wasn't excited on just normal Lashes.

I was thinking about buying a brush set from Wasp Hair (got recommended from a friend also studying beauty, Jess C) and I came across their beautiful range of decorative lashes.

Here are a few below !

These 3 are called Jade, Emily and Katie. All basically the same, but different colours.
I find these perfect for both a good night out and photo shoot's.

The last four have the same concept with fan's of lashes out the side.
I would only wear them if I was going to a raunchy night out eg. Bachellorette Party!!
But they are still very cute!

The one thing I love about Wasp Hair, is that they are very supportive of beauticians.
That's how I know their products make the cut since they are made to revolve around our lives!

Be sure to check out the rest of the lashes!

BH Cosmetics ~ 120 Eyeshadow Palette 5th Edition :)

So when searching through old emails, I came across the email for the launch of BH Cosmetics's new eye shadow palette. When I read it, I actually got excited, even though I knew I was VERY behind on the times haha.
The palette is designed for that feminen side to all us girly girls, with browns for day, and pinks for night. Looking at the site, the product already has a 100% vote on 5/5 from customers.
It tells you everything from what skin tone the buyers had, and everything they loved about the product!
This is Brigita's Review:
I bought 5th palette and some individual brushes (Blending Brush, Smudge Brush, Small Smudge Brush, All-over Brush, Highlighter Brush and Duo Fiber Stippling Brush). Eyeshadow colors are natural and worm, blends well, you can create many different looks - from daily to going out look. Brushes are very soft, blending with them is so easy, great quality for small price!
I`m very excited and I love BH Cosmetics! Definitelly, this wasn`t my last order! I recommend this cosmetics to everyone!
Service and delivery comments:
I was extremely excited when a postman deliver my first order. Only 8 days for package to arrive from USA to Croatia is excellent time! There were no psihical damage on the package nor the items inside, everthing was extremely well protected.

I own a couple other palette's from BH Cosmetics, and generally speaking, all eyeshadows apply the same, so no doubt in my mind, it is easy to blend and highly pigmented.
The regular price is: $34.95 but BH has sales often so you should be able to pick it up cheaper!

Be sure to check out this palette!

BYS Diamond Shadow in Miami Beats !

So as you may be aware,  I recently went for a shopping day in Hamilton with my bestie Rhychelle!
Although I was only intending to buy Foundation, this is one of the little things I just happened to pick up along they way!

Pictured above is the BYS Eye Palette in Miami Beats :)

There is a vast variety of colours throughout the range, and they are perfect for those on low budgets!

Although, this eye shadow contains a lot of Talc. So much, that it actually make me sneeze!
So I personally steer away from the product as much as possible. I only use it if I have to.

As you can see below in the swatches, The colours do come up bright, and they are very shimmery!

Btw, they are a little jumbled up ! My bad :/

I found that the purples came up looking very alike. It kind of annoyed me a little bit.
They are fairly easy to blend, and although it makes me sneeze, the smell in nice.
I give this a 9/10 :)

It was worth the $5 @ The Reject Shop!
