Files of New: Make-up

sephora 4 eye look books holiday setI’ve actually been really good and haven’t been buying too much make-up lately.  I really don’t need any more make-up as I have loads already but every now and then I do treat myself.

My latest make-up purchase was this Sephora holiday eyeshadow set that I bought in the sales. There are 4 eye look books: the smokey eye, the nude eye, the party eye and the metallic eye.

sephora 4 eye look booksMy favorite so far is the Metallic eye look book because I love wearing gold eyeshadow with some darker shadow in the crease to compliment my ever present cat eye liner. I also like the Nude eye book. In my opinion, you can never go wrong with a nude eye palette.

Sephora-Eye-Look-Book-SetI haven’t tried the Party eye look book yet but I’m intrigued. I have green eyes and I’ve been told to wear purple eye shadow to emphasize the greenness  of my eyes, but it’s not a look I  would usually go for (I swear by the cat eye. It’s just so simple to do and there are so many possibilities!)

All-in-all I’m happy with this purchase. I wouldn’t have paid full price for it but in the sales I think it was a really good buy. I’ll definitely be using these products so that’s good!

 

Files of New: the make-up

Hey guys, today I want to share some recent make-up purchases that I’ve bought these past two months. Some of the items were bought in New York and others were bought here in Prague.

This holiday make-up set from Tarte was honestly one of my favorite purchases from New York. The set contains a palette of 20 eyeshadows, a gorgeous lip tint (love it!), a lip gloss, a miniature cheek stain, mascara, a small amount of finishing powder and some maracuja oil. It also contains a make-up bag. Anyways, I bought the set for the eye shadows, which are great, so I could not be happier with it.

I had been dying to try out the new-ish Urban Decay eyeshadow palette called Electric. I have the Naked palettes (the Naked basics palette, the Naked 2 palette and also the Naked 3 palette = what can I say? I’m a fan.) but when I saw a video on Pixiwoo of Sam doing a tutorial using the Electric palette, I knew I had to have it. I bought it in Sephora in New York (I am so jealous, the Sephoras in the Czech Republic don’t have Urban Decay products), where I also bought the Tarte holiday set. I have to say, I was a bit disappointed that I wasn’t given any samples even though I spent quite a lot of money there. That’s the one thing that’s better here, at least I always get a sample or two. Also when I got to the hotel and opened this palette, one of the eye shadows was cracked so there was a bit of product spillage and I was a bit sad due to it, but then I thought – I’m being ridiculous – and was right back to my normal happy self. But back to this palette, I love it.

Zoo Trip

at the zooOn Saturday M and I went to visit the Prague Zoo. I got to see some of my favorite animals and wear a cute outfit, so I was a happy girl. I went in comfy Melissa flats because a)there was a lot of walking involved and b)it was threatening to rain (and it did in fact rain while we were having lunch). The shoes in question are Melissa Doris Spike t-bar flats in red. I really like these shoes. I’m a sucker for red shoes in general but I also absolutely love studs on shoes, so of course I love these shoes. Plus they are also really comfy!

Ohh La La

Just a quick little post today. Yesterday I had one of my exams, it was a written one so I don’t know how it went, but it wasn’t the pleasantest of days. I had a bit of a fever the day before and kind of just felt like crap, that’s never a good thing. Plus with nerves, well, let’s just say there have been better days. As a little lift, I stopped by Topshop and had a look-see. I couldn’t afford to buy any clothes (though I did spy this gorgeous black and white gingham skirt, swoon) but I did buy this pretty lippy that I have been thinking about buying on and off for about half a year now. I always talked myself out of it thinking that I don’t need another lipstick. But now I’m so happy that I did buy it and that I do have it, yay!

Favorite Make-up Looks: Vol. 1

natural make-up look

On most days I go for the no make-up”  make-up look: just a bit of foundation or bb cream, a light dusting of shimmery powder and a little bit of eye shadow (with which I either help add a bit of sparkle to my eyes or I use a bit of medium brown shadow to define my eyebrows).  If I’m feeling a bit more adventurous (e.g. less lazy) I do  a cat eye using liquid or gel eyeliner for my eyes (I actually only use mascara at night, because that’s way too much effort for a daytime look, haha).  I love that there are so many ways to wear a cat eye:
