Birthday Randomness and Kind of a New insreda, januar 28, 2015
So it's my birthday today and I felt inspired to do a picture heavy post that includes my favourite things at the moment, which I used today, as well as a portion of things I've treated myself for this occasion. So the end of the post is like a quick preview of the next New In post. Just sit back and scroll down through a ton of pictures.
Starting with eyes first. I used Urban Decay's Naked Basics and Naked2 Basics palettes for a general definition of my eyes and then Maybeline's On and on Bronze as a base on the lids with one of my favourite eyeshadows ever, L'Oreal's Infallible in 21 Sahara Treasure, on top for a more shimmery effect.
Just like every day Essence's Big Bright Eyes pencil is on my waterline for that "yes, of course I went to sleep at 10 P.M." effect. Kardashian Beauty Deeply Felt eyeliner is on my top lash line and on my lashes the best mascara in the world Lancôme Hypnôse in waterproof formula that keeps them curled all day.
Base consists of Max Factor All Day Primer, L'Oreal's Lumi Maqigue Primer/highlighter, NARS Sheer Glow foundation (still have a bit of that sample left as I have been saving it for today), NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, L'Oreal's Lumi Magique concealer and finishing with the fabulous Bourjois Poudre the Riz de Java (awesome, awesome stuff). I sealed the whole makeup with a few sprays of Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.
On my cheeks I'm wearing the most obvious choice Catrice's I'm Nuts About You. I've basically been wearing this non-stop since I got it, so why make a change today.
My lip colour of choice is Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in 02 Frambourjoise.
On my nails today is Essie's Bahama Mama, though I seriously considered wearing Deborah Smalto Gel Effect 01. Bahama Mama is a Tyrian purple/ a deep warm purple shade, so my second favourite colour after mint green.
I'll probably switch my fragrance sometime during the day, but I'm starting with my beloved Fame by Lady Gaga.
The whole Vineyard Peach collection will surely be used today and I'll be keeping the body mist near me all day.
I got this beautiful infinity necklace from H&M for about 3 € and I've been wearing it non-stop since.
I also bought 21 pairs of earrings - a 20 pack from Tally Weijl for 9€ (full picture here) and a pair of adorable moustache earrings for 2 € from a brand called La Luna, which is sold in Tuš. I believe the last time I bought earrings was in 2007 and I've been wearing basically the same pair all the time since. I have no idea why people are so shocked when they hear that *finds it amusing*.
I've finally treated myself to these three fragrances that have been on my wishlist for quite a while. First is Britney Spears Fantasy the Nice Remix (a slightly fruitier version of the original), Aqualina Pink Sugar (basically a sugar + vanilla attack, but I like it) and Katy Perry Royal Revolution (the softest and least sugary one of the three).
My "hair" inspired purchases from Feel Unique. Basically, I just repurchased all the things my hair loves, but there are also some new comers that I'm trying out. Just a quick shout out to Kérastase Nutritive Masquitense Épais - Thick because it's just phenomenal.
I just adore the bottle of Royal Revolution. This will so stay on my vanity as decoration for a long time.
I hope you enjoyed this picture heavy post and have a great day!
