False lashes. They can be a pleasure to wear but a nightmare to apply! The first time I ever tried it I was shaking because I was so stressed out after trying for so many times! I eventually gave up and promised myself to try it again later on. Since then I have probably only worn false lashes two times. Three times is the charm? We’ll see!
I’m not really a huge fan of fake lashes. I love how they look and I can instantly tell if others are wearing them but the problem is that sometimes I get it right immediately and sometimes I’m struggeling so much! I have never tried fake individual eyelashes before but when I saw these at the Essence counter, I was very interested!
The fake lashes are packed in a little white box, it has four lines of fake lashes in different sizes and a mini glue. I like to use a tweezer to apply my lashes with, they are for sure a lot tinier and harder to grab with your fingers! When I use these, I put on about three or four individual lashes. You could apply more, I’m just trying to keep it natural and I think three to four does the trick. I place one (the longest) on the outer corner of my eyes, two on the middle and one very short one in the beginning of my eye, close to my inner tear duct.
This is how long they are from the sides. If you look closely you can see that I am wearing false lashes (my lashes aren’t that long naturally) but I do think it still looks neutral.
I am quite happy with the result, I do for sure enjoy individual lashes more than the full ones. I also think they look really great and they would even be appropriate for on a daily basis. Above all that, they are very inexpensive as well! Love!
Thanks for reading! I hope you have an amazing day! Take care!
I decided to make a photo tutorial for you guys so you could recreated if you wanted to. I hope it’s clear enough, if not, I’m willing to make a talk through video tutorial. Anyways, here is the photo tutorial!
I will quickly talk you through what I did:
The first eyeshadow that I applied was a very light, slightly yellow looking colour that I blended into my crease. This will help as a transition colour, it has no other purpose. You could work a bit messier than with a very dark colour.
The second eyeshadow is a light beige/skintone kind of colour that I applied over the other colour in the crease - again, you don’t have to be super careful with it.
Next I applied a taupe colour on the eyelid. The eyeshadow that I’m using can be used both wet and dry so I used it dry on my eyelid and then I wet it a little bit and applied the wet eyeshadow in the center of my eyelid.
Next I put a light skintoned colour (more to the white) underneath my browbone. I also put it in the inner tear duct.
After that I applied liquid eyeliner and mascara. Done!

I don’t have very much lipglosses in a red kind of colour and since it’s my favourite colour to wear, I couldn’t leave this behind.
The brush is a little bit out of the ordinary, I never had one like this before so it’s quite difficult to try to apply the colour smoothly and flawless, but once you achieve the look, it’s to die for!
Hello everyone! Part twentythousand of my lipstick obsession! Today I present to you this lovely orange toned lipstick by Revlon called “Kiss me coral”. I know it’s a bit sad, but this is actually my first Revlon product. Ever.
Well, I guess there’s a first for everything, isn’t there?!
I can’t even begin to explain why I love this lipstick so much, but I’ll try. Let’s start with packaging. I think, even though this lipstick isn’t really super expensive, that it does look very luxurious. Black and gold, it’s beautiful!
Ah, and the colour! It’s super pretty! I am quite into red, berry and orange lipsticks. I think I wouldn’t have bought it if it was any brighter but I though this was still acceptable.
This lipstick has a rather creamy texture which makes it easy to apply. It doesn’t survive a meal, though, I always touch up my lipstick after eating, even if it’s not really needed, but this one does need it a bit. Also, look how pigmented the lipstick is!
I am so excited about this product, I think I might add some more Revlon to my collection soon… You know what they say about first impressions, and this first impression couldn’t have been better!
Hi guys! A little while ago I got this new palette by Catrice called “Before or after eight”, which holds a blue, a gold-ish kind of colour and two brown colours. It’s super pretty and I’ve tried different looks with it already! Today I have this look for you, made with the Catrice palette. I like this look especially because it’s quite neutral but the blue is still peaking out a little!
Let me know what you think!
Below, you can see the two lipsticks next to each other. They do look similar, don’t they?
Swatches! MAC is the left swatch, Rimmel is the right swatch. I do really think they look similar, the MAC one might just be a little bit darker.
And now how they look on my lips… Now, I have to warn you!
Please don’t mind my chin - I tried out some new skincare and uhm, let’s say that didn’t really work out too well.
I would say Rimmel’s “Kiss of Life” is a pretty good drugstore dupe for MAC’s Russian Red. It is slightly less red and a little lighter, but everything else is pretty much thesame!
Thanks for reading! Stay safe!
As you can read in the title, I’m doing another makeup challenge. I did a 10 products makeup challenge a little while ago but this time I decided to go for the 20 products makeup challenge.
I think I have been spending a little bit too much money on makeup. I have posted a lot of hauls lately: I got nearly 300 new eyeshadow colours from E.L.F. and I became a too well known person in the drugstore, near the Catrice and Essence shelves. So it’s time to slow down, stop buying makeup and start using what I have already a little bit more.
I’m really excited! I’m also very curious how long it’s going to take me to finish this challenge. And also, just for the record, if I finish one eyeshadow, I’m going to count one, I’m not going to finish the whole palette before I count one. Especially because I’m mostly using my 144 eyeshadow palette…. Haha!
So yeah, I will keep you updated on that and if you’re doing a challenge as well, let me know what it is and how it’s going (or if you want to do this challenge with me, that would be awesome)!
Thanks for reading! Wish me luck!
