Rise of the Guardians Inspired

Hi! Don't hate me :)) I know I've been super lazy but, really, I see that most of you follow me on facebook so I don't really put much effort into posting on the blog. But, what the heck! I ain't got nothing to lose, especially now when I'm on "living room confinement" since we're renovating around here and it's all just one big mess.
Anyways, I finally got to watch the animation Rise of The Guardians and let me tell you that i absolutely loved it! It's one of the best animations I've ever seen in my life...and it inspired me to do some wearable looks based on the main characters. So, without further ado, here are the first two....Jack Frost and Tooth Fairy!

I really hope you enjoyed this! I did! :)) For the next looks I'm planning to do video tutorials as well, so stay close if you want to learn how to do the other looks. Kisses!

Catching up & Lifestyle change

Hello girls! I'm so sorry for being such a lazy ass and not posting anything in a really long time...I have no particular reason why I did so...I just didn't feel like it. I actually don't feel like anything lately, the weather is so depressing, and makes you just wanna snuggle your pillow and not get out of bed.
So anyways, to catch up with what I did, I'll start by telling you what MIRACLE face products I have :D My mom recently returned from her vacation in Jordany and she came home with half a suitcase filled with Dead Sea Minerals enriched cosmetics :)) Which was to my absolute joy since I am a total hoarder when it comes to stuff like this. I was a bit reluctant at first because I have never used products like that but was really eager to do so since my face decided to go nuts :)).
I have a whole stack of masks and facial creams, serums, body scrubs, facial scrubs, mud masks etc. all of them from Dead Sea Fortune and so far I have tried the facial scrub, body scrub, face mud mask, day&night cream and body butter. Let me just say HOLY CRAP! My face has never looked and felt better! The first time I applied the mud mask it stung a bit and the next day I had some zits appear but then everything went smooth. I am so in love with these products, they really work and I really love that they are based on natural ingredients!

Next up I decided that I got sick and tired of complaining about my body and not doing anything about it so I started going to the gym and lately I gave up on sodas or any kind of sugary drink. I only drink flat water with lemon or tea. Don't get me wrong now, I don't think I'm fat...I'm like 1,68 m and 53 kg which is almost too little for my height but I have no muscle tone what so ever...everything just hangs there :)) I want abs and butt and legs! :D Next step and the hardest will be giving up on sweets which I absolutely LOVE! Like...crazy love...but slowly I will reduce the amount I eat. I'm expecting to see some visible progress within the next 2 months and share it with you.

Third and last thing, I wanted to show you some of the looks I did :)

Lime Crime Carousel Glosses and special makeup!

Hello my beautiful followers! First of all I hope that all of you are having the most amazing 2013! Sorry for being MIA, but it's been crazy with the holidays and all, and currently I'm elbow deep in some projects and I barely had the time to do any sophisticated makeup.
Lime Crime has been so sweet as to send me the amazing gloss trio which includes Present, Hollygram and Snowsicle. Let me just say WOW! and not the game...we'll get to that part later. :))

So, this is my personal impression on the glosses:
1. I absolutely love the boxing! It's so original and cute that even my fiance liked it.
2. The lip brush is perfect for applying the gloss accordingly to fit your lips...so if you have smaller lips this is your go-to brush.
3. They smell delicious! Really, i could just eat them off my lips.
4. The pigmentation is gorgeous! I'm not sure when I'll get the chance to wear green lip gloss but I still love the tiny sparkles in it.
5. Snowsickle is the most amazing gloss I have ever owned....you can wear it simple or over any other matte shade to give it an extra sparkle.

Here's a few photos and swatches




So for me....they get a 5/5 rating!

So lately I have gone mad for WOW....as in World of Warcraft, my hubby bought me the WOW Battle Chest which includes the first three expansions and I'm like in love with this game. (Gonna play after I post this). I love it so much I decided to start a short makeup series which includes the two sides, Alliance and Horde.
Without further ado...my interpretation of Alliance.

Hope you enjoyed this and keep close for more of my looks!

The holidays are coming!

Hello ladies! As I've mentioned before I'm super duper excited about Christmas, I've already bought presents for everyone but still haven't got a Christmas tree :( Anyways, I've been matching my makeup with this wonderful holiday and season almost every day and really wanted to share with you two of my favorite looks. Sorry about the first one...by the time I finished my makeup it was getting darker outside and the lighting was awful for the pics, hence the poor quality. T_T

As for the video tutorials, I'm waiting for my new Samsung Galaxy Nexus to get here so I can film in HD for you guys :D Can't wait!

Here are the two looks I've mentioned. Oh, and before I forget, I want to thank Lime Crime again for the products which I use almost every day!



Feel free to comment and may you have an amazing holiday!

Lime Crime Christmas Glam Look

Hello ladies! I've been having some difficulties starting the video tutorials because the webcam I wanted to use doesn't have enough frames per second :( boo! And...since I need a new phone I said I'd wait longer and get one that records in HD...I wanted Samsung Galaxy S3 but I'd rather buy a laptop than spend so much on a phone :))
Anyways, until I get the whole youtube video tutorials started, here's a step-by-step tutorial for a glamorous and colorful holiday look. I actually tried this look with two types of lipsticks.

I've used  Lime Crime's Alchemy Collection  for the eyes and lips along with Quill and Rhyme eyeliners. Thank you again Lime Crime for the awesome products!

Step 1
Prime your lids using your favorite primer, then take Serpentina lipstick and take some product using your finger and apply on your lids as a base.

Step 2
Using a flat brush, apply Lucky Charm over the green base.

Step 3
Take a stiff blending brush and apply Incantation over Lucky Charm and blend upwards.

Step 4
Highlight your brow bone to even out the remaining space, using Spellbound.

Step 5
Take a smaller brush and using Lucky Charm line your lower lash line. Stop half way in.

Step 6
Using that same brush, apply Love Potion no. 9 all the way to the inner corner.

Step 7
Take some more Spellbound and highlight your inner corner

Step 8
Again, take your Serpentina lipstick or if you don't have that take some chapstick on your finger and apply over the green eyeshadow, then with a flat stiff brush, apply some gold glitter. I also applied some snow-like glitter because it had some green hues to it.

Step 9
Line your eyes using Quill eyeliner, then after it's dry, line with Rhyme or a golden eyeliner over the black one.

Step 10
Appy false lashes or simply mascara your own ones.

Step 11
Cover your lips with a generous coat of Poisonberry lipstick or if this is too much for you go for a nude, peach or even orange lipstick.

Here's the final look:

Lime Crime Alchemy Collection

Hello darlings! So here it is at last! The Alchemy collection is finally here and let me say it's amazing. The same as every product Lime Crime sells, this palette has been created with passion and love for makeup. The colors are pigmented, long lasting and gorgeous. As for the lipsticks, they're creamy and soft and very very pigmented...I actually had some trouble removing Poisonberry off my lips.
Without further ado, here are some photos and swatches of the products and also a look I did using the Alchemy collection alongside Aquataenia palette and Uniliners.

I hope you liked this, and I really want to thank Lime Crime once more for sending me these amazing gifts and for believing in me!
