I made this look with 2 of my favourite brands: Sugarpill and MakeUp Geek. I also adore my Sleek makeup palettes so they bascially share a top 3 together.
My initial idea was to stay with the orange, pink and plummy colours from my MakeUp Geek pigments but then I added some colours from my Sugarpill Heartbreaker palette and well… that’s when things became rainbow…ish.
The MakeUp Geek pigments are Afterglow, Enchanted and a bit of New Years Eve.
I really like the combination of colours I used under the eye: Sugarpill Olivia, Mochi and Velocity. It’s not a load of colour but it’s enough to stand out. And I used Sugarpill’s Asteria on the moving lid and Poison Plum and 2AM in the crease and Diamond Eyes under the brow.
This time I didn’t use any eyeliner, I used black eyeshadow at the lashline and I really like that effect. It’s a lot more smokey. 🙂
I didn’t use a lot of colour on the lips, figured I’d keep those light for a change. I like dark lips and dark eyes but I can make the whole look a bit “much”, don’t you think?
I really loved working with so many colours again. What do you think, do you like this look? With what lip colour would you have paired it?

Just a quick blogpost about a nailpolish!
About a week ago I posted in one of the Facebook nail groups I’m in that I was looking for a black nail polish with multicolour flecks or glitter. Not the chunky kind of glitter but the kind that you just start to notice when you really look at the polish a bit more up close. I have one that’s from an Essence duo called Ticket To The Show but that’s a tiny bottle and I really like the effect. But all the suggestions I got were either very different from what I was looking for or not completely black. And I really like me a beautiful black nailpolish.
Lucky for me the fantabulous Caroline from Lacquester is in that group too. She got in action and within no time at all, she made this polish!
It’s a bit different from the original but in all honesty: I love the one from Lacquester way more. Not in the least because it’s unique, obviously. But also because it’s a true black polish with a bit more sparkle than the original has and it catches the eye just a bit more. LOOOOOVE IT!
I’m no good at nailpolish shots, I’m fully aware. They usually look a bit sloppy, my cuticles are dry and my polishing is not even near perfect. But it’s about the polish and I’m just really excited about this one, so I just had to show it off a bit 🙂
Just one last picture!
I don’t know if you’re familiar with the Lacquester webshop but please do check it out, she’s an amazing Indie nailpolish webshop that deserves all the attention she can get. She makes great quality nailpolishes that are very special. You can just tell she put’s a lot of effort and love in her products. Oh and she didn’t name this polish, so I named it Caroline’s Constellation, haha.
Let me know in the comments what you think of this polish, you like it? Do you have any makeup products that were just a bit special to you because they are rare or even unique?
Autumn has technically passed a while ago but I still love those colours. I made this look with the colours of early autumn in mind. That time when you just notice the leaves goig yellow and golden but they haven’t fallen off just yet. I like that time of year because it’s usually still a warmer temperature but you can feel the cold starting to creep in.
I made this look with some of my Sugarpill pigments and pressed eyeshadows: Goldilux, Olivia, Subterranean and Diamond Eyes.
Hope you like it!
A have a soft spot for Sugarpill Goldilux because no matter what you pair it with, it always glows like a ray of sunshine. 🙂
Honestly, the only thing I really don’t like about this look is the sloppy brows. I just didn’t pay attention to them after I added my highlighter and now it’s sparkling up my brows. Oh well, sparkly brows are fun too. 🙂
I just did one eye and I didn’t like the pictures where I looked up or in the camera so there’s just one fullface picture. But those pictures are usually just to give you an idea of how it looked from a distance so this gives a pretty good picture of that, right?
I liked doing this look but I notice I’ve kinda lost the autumn mood, probably like I said: because it’s no longer autumn, haha.
I was having some fun with a new mascara from Essence. It’s an awesome colour and I figured I could pair it with blue eyeshadow to make the colour pop. Well… that didn’t turn out the way I wanted it! The mascara is well “pigmented”, if you can call mascara’s pigmented, but the colours from Sugarpill are just way too strong, haha!
So the colour of the mascara really doesn’t pop anymore but you can still see it, right?
I still love the shine in Magpie, when the light hit’s it. It’s so beautiful!
I did a double eyeliner to make it a bit more fun. It’s still not my favourite look but it was nice to experiment with this coloured mascara.
What do you guys think? Do you ever use coloured mascara’s like this? I personally don’t, I always use a black one but a little pop of colour is a nice change. What colours would you pair this mascara with? Any ideas I should try with it?
