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 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!

Some artistic looks to get the holidays started

Hello ladies! One thing you didn't know about me is that I'm a Christmas mega-fan! I absolutely love this's my favorite part of the year (except for my birthday) :))! So I've already started the "X-Mas" inspired looks series with a more artistic and non-wearable look that I wanted to share with you. But before the holiday look I want to share another look I did last's full of color just as I like it and surprisingly it took me more than one hour to get this sucker done...but I'm pleased with the result.
Without further ado, here are the two looks I prepared for you.....and also some news at the end of the post, so keep reading this!

And as I promised earlier, I have an announcement: Starting December, I'm going to be filming video tutorials for you guys on Youtube! I've already had my followers vote on Facebook what look they want to see first and "Night Glam" got the most votes. Keep your eyes peeled!

Guess who went shopping?

Hello there ladies! So yes...I went on a tiny shopping spree for cosmetics. On Friday I have this event with a fashion show including wedding dresses and I needed to restock on makeup products since there's going to be some heavy work :)). Anyways, I ended up buying two foundations, mascara, eyeliner, and I couldn't help myself not to get something from NYX as well so I bough a lipstick and an eyeshadow and got a complementary Jumbo Pencil at choice....I was planning to get the Milk one but they were all out T_T
So, without further ado, here's the cargo!
P.S. The foundations are not for me! :)) They're for the models... :D mkay?

L'Oreal Lumi Magique Foundation

Maybelline New York Dream Satin Liquid
There is also a spray version of this but it's nowhere near as good.

NYX Jumbo Pencil in Black Bean

NYX single eyeshadow in Wild Fire. It's a gorgeous shimmering teal-ish color.

NYX  Lipstick No. 507. This is an amazing golden-orange color 
which looks absolutely gorgeous on the lips and it's very soft and creamy.

I didn't swatch the mascara and the eyeliner...both are from Rimmel London and I assure you they're amazing.

Anyway, I hope you liked this short swatch and also I hope you like the look I wore for today (added some NYX Wild Fire). Feel free to leave a comment!

BH Cosmetics goodies

Well guess what came in the mail? I figure you've already guessed since it's in the title and yes my gorgeous ladies, you're right! My prize from the "Back To School" competition finally came after almost a month's wait. I was super excited to open the package and examine all my goodies :D I wanted to show you the photos and do a little review on the products.

Le box :))

This is the travel's actually smaller than I imagined but i like the fact that it's pretty solid and doesn't wrinkle or get flat.

The three palettes

The 28 color palette looks really amazing...I love the colors in it even though I don't really wear smokey eyes that often but I guess I'm gonna give it a try with this new palette. You can also create lots of beautiful nude or soft looks with the colors.

Aaaand a look I created with this palette 

The Contour and Blush palette is really good, pigmented and easy to blend. The only thing that I don't like about it is that the blushes are matte and I like my dose of shimmer...but I guess I can blend it with some Lime Crime Top Hattie eyeshadow for some  sparkle

What really blew my mind was the Lip Gloss Palette...usually when you buy a palette with many lip glosses they're not really pigmented and they're dry and sticky...but surprisingly, this BH palette is absolutely gorgeous! What you see is what you get...the colors stay true...absolutely amazing.

I want to thank BH Cosmetics again for the amazing prizes and also give a thumbs up to their amazing store...check it out here:

My cat loves BH Cosmetics too :)))
