Woohoo, 299th blogpost!
When I made this look I had just done my hair. I usually wear it hanging down or in a ponytail but I wanted to do something different so I tried a sock bun. I really liked the result and I thought it called for a classic makeup.
So I tried keeping my eyeshadow very light (well, light for me anyway) and a nice ombre lipstick. With dramatic eyeliner, just to get that classic pinup feel I had going with my hair.
When I made the Gloomy Autumn look I wanted to use some dark colours and I really liked the result. But I’ve always liked dark colours in my makeup so that’s not exactly a surprise. After that I wanted to do “something green” and like Gloomy Autumn, not with too many colours. Maybe some glitter?
Here’s what happened.
Some time ago Born Pretty Store was doing a Twitter giveaway and I won one of the prizes! It’s always a nice surprise to be able to try new stuff, right?
I received some nailart products and this lipstick, from a brand I wasn’t familliar with. It’s from 3 Concept Eyes and I guess it’s a Chinese brand, since the webshop is Chinese and simply because I can’t read anything that’s written on it, lol.
With this package, the people from Born Pretty Store also gave me a 10% off coupon for you lovely shopping addicts out there. If you’re going to order anything in their store, make sure you use the code LBGW10, mmmkay?
I don’t do a lot of reviews but I’m thinking about doing it a bit more often. I got a lot of (new) products from Catrice, Essence and Kruidvat and I know a lot of people enjoy reading them so I figured it would be nice to do for a change.
I wanted to start of with this new lip product from Essence. I love matte lipsticks so I had my eye on this product the moment I saw the promopictures. And it comes in this insanely vibrant red called Silky Red, among three others, so it basically screamed my name.
Sorry about the quiet time on my blog lately, I was starting to pick up the blogging again and then a major flu hit me that basically knocked me out for a week. I did manage to get the giveaway online but after that I really needed time to get back on my feet.
You can still enter the giveaway so, please do!
Anyway, I wanted to do a nice pinup look but with a twist. So I did a red glitter eyeliner with a matte red lip. Hope you like it.
