Hi Girls, I hope your week has been going well. Woohoo for thursday!
About two months ago I was at the Other Art Fair here in London and the girl at the pop-up coffee shop there had a line of glitter painted slightly above her eyebrows. Although different, I thought it looked quite good. She told me that she and her friends went to loads of festivals this summer and had worn loads of glitter so she decided to keep it going by subtly adding it to her face, hence the eyebrow decoration. Anyway I tried two looks with this eye glitter that I found this MUA one for about $1.60
I literally just swept it on over my eyebrow and that was it.
I know its a bit weird but I think it adds a unique sparkle! What do you think?
This second look, if you read yesterdays post is inspired by stick on glitter eyeliner and is super simple.
1) Line your upper lash line with black liner.
2) Go over your eyeliner with a line of glitter. And you’re done!
The other day I wandered down the makeup aisle at Superdrug towards the MUA section which I can’t say how much I love because they have such great quality for mostly £1. As I looked through their nail polishes I found this little gem ‘shade 19′ (color looks different on the online swatch) a little grey, mushroomy color which I knew reminded me of something. I went home and put it on and realized that the color is really similar to Chanel’s ‘Frenzy.’ This color is not only cool because it is a Chanel dupe but its just a nice color in general which I have gotten several compliments! Also I just realized MUA ships internationally! By the way I layered it on because I love opaque nail colours but if you but one coat on it looks more like above!!
Ironically or not one of the collections that has caught my eye at London fashion Week is the Moschino Cheap & Chic. Besides all the colors on the clothes, a certain electric blue eyeliner caught my eye. I like it because it brightens your face but doesn’t look too crazy. At Moschino they only lined the botton lash but I thought I’d go all out. I used MUA eyeliner in Turquoise (£1). What do you think? have you tried this? I think you could also use a violet to make brown eyes stand out. Oh yeah and apparently I have no idea how to ‘schmize’ (don’t know how to spell that).
I use a range of different Makeup from high street to department store but one of my favorites is MUA because its soo cheap most of their range is 1£. I also always get complimented when I wear their lipsticks!!!! So this is my little review/test for you.
Shade 13, Shade 12, Shade3 , Shade 15, Shade 16
Shade 15-Juicy and Shade 16- Nectar
These two are quite similar in color and I love them for a coral nude. Since they do stick on every crack of your lip because I feel they are more like a balm I put on some nivea cream then a little bit of foundation before putting them on.
Shade 3, Shade 12
These two pinks are soo cute. Shade 3 is bright pink and is a good day alternative to red. Check this post out for another view of the color! This one doesn’t dry out your lips and last quite long but it does transfer easily! Shade 12 is pink with glitter in it and it is buildable. You can layer it for a darker pink or keep it simple.
Finally there is Red! I love this color. It is bright red and I swear I get random people asking me where I bought this. Also I have had to buy it for so many of my firiends from the states. This one doesn’t dry out your lips and last quite long but it does transfer easily! Check out this other post for another view of this color!
What are your fave summer colors? Do you have any cheapies? Or even expensive ones that you really like?
