Naturally, I have really thin, awkward eyebrows. They stop about where the arch is, so to complete any makeup look, I always have to fill them in. I have tried tons of products from pencils to eyeshadow (my second fav choice), but for the past few months I've been using something a little unconventional and it's been my go-to product. Scroll down to learn about it and follow the steps!
Witajcie! Dzisiaj prezentuję Wam makijaż ciepły i efektowny. Idealnie współgra z niebieskimi tęczówkami. To propozycja do odważnych Pań, które nie boja się żywych, zdecydowanych kolorów.
Knowing I would probably only have time to do one makeup tutorial before Christmas I knew it had to be smokey eyes as it’s my favourite look for late winter nights. I find smokey eye inspiration in the red carpet looks of Angelina Jolie, Keira Knightly, Kristen Stewart and Heidi Klum as I think all these beautiful women always nail the smokey eye look in a way that makes them look both graceful and sexy, as opposed to the much dreaded post bedroom look many people seem to think smokey eyes is. Smokey eyes step by step: 1. Start with applying an eyeshadow primer to make sure the shadow will stay put all night. Follow up with applying a base shadow in the same shade as your skin all over the lid and under, avoiding the area just above your upper lash line.
No, you did not ask. And I realize you likely do not give two squirts about my top five anything. But that's the thing about blogs: I get to write about it anyway and you can take it or leave it. Win-win! So here it is, my top five beauty products -- those items I could not or, at least, hope to never have to live without:
Every Sunday morning I indulge in my weekly series of beauty treatments. Each Sundays vary but every weekend I treat my skin to a facial and I deep condition my hair. Since there is always some waiting time involved I love to flip through my latest magazine subscriptions, grab a glass of OJ and relax the time away.

With Easter coming up on Sunday, I felt like creating a pastel makeup look with a twist. I surrounded some pastel colors with gray, because it made me think of winter transitioning into spring. For the pastel colors, I used soft blue and pink on my lid and then blended them where they meet to create a light pastel purple shade. I finished the look with a rich violet lip color to tie in the purple eye shadow blend. EYES - MAC Paint Pot in “Soft Ochre” (entire lid) - MAC E/S in “Gesso” (highlight) - MAC E/S in “Swish” (center lid to inner corner) - MAC E/S in “Sweet Lust” (tear duct) - MAC E/S in “Moon’s Reflection” (center to outer lid; blend where it meets Swish to create a pastel purplish shade) - MAC E/S in “Print” (outer V; blend along outer half of crease) - Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel in “77″ (upper lash line) - MAC Eye Kohl in “Smolder” (lower waterline) - Maybelline The Falsies Volum’Express Waterproof Mascara in “Very Black” (two coats on top and one coat on bottom lashes)
Not sure which shadow will pop those baby blues or which liner will best bring out your gorgeous green? Well, that dust-collecting drawer of untouched shades that were pretty in the package but not in person isn’t doing any of us any good! Read on for the cliff notes to choosing the PERFECT shade based on your eye color.

First, I know it's Tuesday and I'm predictably late with Makeup Monday. I hope the lack of alliteration doesn't detract from the post; I promise that I have lots of great excuses for not putting this up yesterday. Or, I fell asleep. One of my first forays into the wonderful world of bright eyeshadow was with a beautiful shade of green from Milani (whose older shadows were amazing), and I was forever hooked.
Inspired by the beautiful sea and watching it turn from turquoise to blue and by the way it hits the purple sun setting at the end of the day I created this look as my first summer look! I can´t emphasise enough how excited I am to see summer just around the corner! This whole look is done using products from Mac Cosmetics simply because I was standing with my palettes in front of me, you can obviously switch out the products for what ever you have that is similar :) 1. Start of with a primer on the lid to make sure that the eyeshadows don´t crease and to get a more vibrant colour pay off.
If you’ve lamented about the lack of recent updates, I will not hesitate to point fingers at my very comfortable bed that has held me hostage the past week or so since I came back. But other than that, I wish unpacking was an easy job, unfortunately it’s not. If I may be honest, I still have clothes somewhere in my suitcases strewn across the living room floor. But the easiest and naturally, most obvious items I unpacked first was my makeup and I thought I’d let you have a peek inside the make up case I brought to Sao Paulo, Brazil. Instead of lugging my original make up case that’s 4kg heavy across oceans and beyond, I narrowed the items down with the help of Mag from makeupstash.com for the specific look I wanted for the Miss Universe 2011 competition. With 3 check-in luggage and 1 hand-carry, it was close to impossible to bring everything inside my make up bag for make up every day for 26 days.
If there is a holy grail of makeup, it’s almost certainly the highly elusive perfect mascara. The best mascara would be one that lengthens while it thickens, curls while it separates, and stays resolutely clump-free and steadfastly smudge-proof from morning ’til night. The perfect mascara also would give your eyes that “va-va-va-voom” factor — deliciously envy-worthy lashes that would make people wonder if your lashes just might be fake before deciding that you’ve simply been unfairly blessed with a genetically superior lashline. While no single mascara possesses all of these qualities, we’ve pinpointed a technique that achieves an effect that comes close to this level of perfection.
I did my best to beat the clock, but I lost. Hey, it's still Monday on the West Coast (as Michael kindly pointed out). For my third Makeup Monday, I decided to do a look that was both summery and something I've been meaning to document.
