Palettes I'm Loving



Naked 2 - Urban Decay
High Definition Eyeshadow 403: Orchidea - HEAN


Recently I've been playing a lot with my Naked 2, but I also love wearing plums on autumn/winter, so I incorporate my palette from HEAN to the mix. I just find it very appropriate. In the last picture is a example of an eye look I've been wearing a lot. I use "bootycall" all over my lid, then I apply "tease" (is my favorite shade of the palette ) to my crease. Then I like to add the darkest color on the HEAN palette on the lower part of my eye. To finish it off, I apply eyeliner and mascara. Simple, but I'm obsessed!

Na última imagem está um exemplo de um look que tenho usado muito. Eu uso "bootycall" na pálpebra, depois aplico "tease" (é a minha cor preferida da paleta ) na crease. No final, eu gosto de adicionar a cor mais escura da paleta HEAN na parte inferior do olho. Para acabar o look, aplico eyeliner e rímel. Simples, mas estou obcecada!

Sweater - Pull & Bear // Leggings - Choies // Coat - Sheinside // Shoes - Stradivarius

Today I'm wearing my new sweater with some very cool leggings that have 3 different textures. On top of that, I'm wearing a coat that I got from Sheinside, keeping it simple as always.

January SALES


I went shopping this week and I wasn't planning on buying much so I just bought these two pieces that I wanted for a while, and a book.


I wanted a oversized denim jacket for a long time, I have a normal one and it ain't the same thing. The reason I haven't bought one before was because they were always a bit pricey. This one wasn't very cheap, but I really liked it so it was now or never. I do see myself wearing it a lot.

I don't usually wear turtlenecks because I always feel suffocated, but I saw some people styling this type with a loose high neck so I decided to buy it. Because it is loose, it feels like a scarf and as it is pretty long I see myself wearing it with leggings, turning into a warm and comfortable outfit.

Ebay Makeup Brushes

Top to Bottom.
Angled Shading Brush; Small Flat Top Brush; Blending Brush; Dome Brush

Ebay Jessup 4 pieces Set. Buy here. They sell many other sets.
4,11€

I needed a blending brush, and now I have four! I searched ebay to see the deals on makeup brushes, and then I found these ones with some great reviews. You might be familiar with them as I saw they are Sigma dupes, I don't know because I never used Sigma brushes before.
Still, I am impressed with these ones, they're are pretty soft and it applies and blends eyeshadow pretty well. So far no hair as fallen out, but I haven't washed them yet so I'm praying everything doesn't fall out. I don't think I'll using all of them very often. The angled shading brush and the blending brush are the ones I see myself using more, given to the makeup I use on a daily basis.
Overall they're great if you don't feel like spending 10€ on a tiny brush.

Precisava de um(a) blending brush, e agora tenho quatro! Pesquisei no ebay e encontrei estes com algumas reviews positivas. Eu vi que eles são dupes dos pincéis da Sigma, eu não posso dizer com certeza porque nunca experimentei os da Sigma.
Mesmo assim, estou impressionada com estes, são bastante suaves e tanto aplica como mistura a sombra muito bem. Até agora nenhum cabelo caiu, e estou a rezar para que não caia nenhum quando os lavar. Eu não acho que vou usar todos muito frequentemente. A angled shading brush e a blending brush são provavelmente as vou usar mais vezes dado ao tipo de maquilhagem que eu uso no dia a dia.
Apesar de tudo, elas são fantásticas se não quiseres gastar 10€ num pincel pequenino.
