Purple Rain & Peacock + Pieni arvonta/Small Giveaway
I've been testing my LIT Cosmetics glitters this weekend. I'm still learning the best ways to apply them and I must say that I start to like the results. I found out that the brushes that came with the kit just don't work for me. I used some old random flat eyeshadow brush and the result was instantly better. More even and more glittery.
In this look I used 'Peacock'. Amazing shade. And as you can see from the blurred picture there's also green glitter in there, although it mainly looks turquoise. And as a reminder to myself: apply the eyeliner before the glitter. It's a pain in the butt to put the liquid eyeliner on top of the glitter.
I did this purple look before I figured I should use other kind of brush, so the result isn't as glittery as I hoped. But otherwise I really liked this look. Haven't been using purples that often lately. Too bad the pictures are quite dark, so the colors are a bit off.
I wasn't happy with the foundation. It looks good in the picture, but it was too cakey. I used Illamasqua's Skin Base. I have mixed feelings about it. The shade is awesome and it's got good coverage, but it applies unevenly and it doesn't stay on the skin more than couple of hours. On my lips I have MAC's 'Fixed On Drama' retro matte. It's quite strange that it looks lighter in the picture than in reality.
Lumoavan Kuningatar -riipus. Sain korun lahjaksi kiitokseksi töistä ja olin aika otettu. Koru on vielä upeampi kuin mitä kuvien perusteella olin katsonut.
Then a close up of my beautiful necklace. It's from Lumoava and the pendant is called 'Queen'. <3 I got it as a gift from my boss as a thank you. I can tell you that I was pretty touched. It's amazing.
Sitten pieni kiitos lukijoilleni kimalluksen muodossa. LIT Cosmetics lähetyksen mukana tuli siis pari extra glitteriä ja mini kokoinen Crearly Liquid Glitter Base ja arvon niistä yhden lukijalleni.
Then a small thank you to my readers. I got few extra glitters from LIT Cosmetics and a mini sized Crearly Liquid Glitter Base and I one of my readers can win them.
