Daily Make Up routine / make up products I use most often ~

Hello lovelies <3
 
It’s been quite a while now since I last uploaded a post about make up :)
Some of you might have wondered which products I use for my daily make up and I must admit – I tend to be very lazy haha !
At times I only use BB Cream and eyeliner , sometimes only concealer and of course at the days I remain home I wear neither make up nor lenses .
 
Just like that girl from the manga “Switch!” . Haha – I looooooove that manga !
 
Since I never learned about doing professional make up I do things my style haha – please don’t be mean if you happen to think that the way I do my make up seems wrong to you . It’s simply how I teached myself to do it :)
 
So here’s my daily make up routine ~
 
Ok – let’s start of with the base .
 
As base I simply use my moisturizer only :D I’ve been using the
 
Oil of Olaz – schützende Tagescréme / Oil of Olay Classic Moisturizer
 
 
I have mixed type skin ( normal skin + oily skin on T-zone ) this moisturizer really helps me balance it :)
Plus it smells soooo nice <3
 
Next step is my
 
Studio Finish Concealer from MAC ( shade NW 20 )
 
 
I absolutely love this concealer ! After years of searching I finally found a concelaer who actually does its job ! It conceals any blemishes and most importantly covers up my hardcore panda-mode eyes !
I recommend this to anyone in search for a high coverage concealer :)
 
I don’t use it everyday as it is quite expensive ( 20 € ) . I only use it when I don’t want people to see my tired eyes haha ~ It lasts pretty long this way :)
 
Next is the Foundation or rather the BB Cream I use :)
 
Perfect Cover BB Cream No. 21 from MISSHA
 
 
I like this BB Cream because its consistency is so much lighter than the ones I used before . This way it is so much easier to apply !

I’ve been using the Dr Jart Silver Label BB Cream ever since I learned about BB Creams and it certainly does a great job in terms of coverage . But it is thicker than the Perfect Cover BB Cream from Missha and creates a more greyish finish . . . more like a doll :P Before I bought the one from Missha I used to mix the Dr Jart BB Cream with my moisturizer to have a more natural even tone on my skin :)
 
At times when I’m in a hurry I skip this step hehe :P
 
Next step is the
 
Studio Fix from Mac ( shade NW 18 )
 
 
 
I use the powder to fix the concealer and BB Cream in the previous steps :) Plus this powder also has a light coverage function so it creates a more even skin ~
 
So far the basic steps for all my make up routines – whether it’s for a night out or just for a brunch meet up :D
 
 
Me with the products described so far – I look like I just woke up and actually I really did just woke up less than an hour ago haha
 
So now to the next step :
I line my eyes with the
 
Real Lasting Eyeliner 1DAY Tatoo from K-Palette
 
 
Eyeliners are an absolute must in my daily make up routine if I go out ! They magically make my small chinese eyes appear a lot bigger ~
I have tried all kinds of eyeliner and I must say that I prefer pen liners like this one or the one I used before ( Dolly Wink Eyeliner ) because they don’t smudge at all and they last really long ! And the application is very easy too haha :3
 
Next step is some brown eyeshadow to line my bottom eyeline .
I use the brown tone from the “big beautiful eyes…” kit from BENEFIT 
 
 
 
You can clearly see which colours from the kit I actually use haha
 
Next is the blusher :
Puff de Cheek from Majolica Majorca ( shade PK 301 )
 
 
I love Majolica Majorca and I absolutely adore its blushes ! The colours are great ( I use the pink and the orange one ) and the little cheek puff thing is so cute ~
 
 
That’s my chocolate mirror on the right of this photo :P
 
The last step is the highlighter aka Step 2 from the
 
Dear Girls – Cute Eyes Maker from ETUDE HOUSE
 
 
I use the “Step 2” by drawing one rash stroke beneath my eyes to highlight it .
 
FINISHED !
 
Depending on what steps I leave out my daily make up routine takes 4 up to 15 minutes ~
 
At times when I’m in a hurry but still need to look well I do all my make up on the train haha XD I love it whenever people praise me for my ability to draw my eyeline with great precision though on the train even when the train is moving hehe . . . 

Now I’ve got a date with FOOOOOOOD :3
 

 

 
Hope you liked the post ~
 
 
lots ‘n’ lots of love ~

It’s spring time ! OOTD / new watch from ASOS

Hello lovelies !
It’s been a while since my last OOTD post but somehow I have been too busy to take any proper OOTD photos :P
Anyway – I wanted to show you my lovely new watch from ASOS .
It’s a fake chronography watch thus it is pretty cheap but looks quite expensive <3
( photo taken from asos.com )
 
It has a very soft rosé gold tone which I absolutely love !
Such lovely weather – finally T-shirt weather again !
Plus first time trying on my highwaist jeans that turned out to be a little too big :(
OOTD 
 
black highwaist shorts from ROMWE
 
floral shirt from Cotton On
 
and of course –
rosé gold boyfriend watch from ASOS
Hope you’re having nice weather too :)
Enjoy the weather before it turns cloudy again – like here in Aachen . . .
There was a very heavy rainfall a few days ago coming out of nowhere !
I was glad that I wasn’t outside that time haha . . .
Anyway I still got ill somehow *sniff* and it doesn’t appear to go away anytime soon . . .
So make sure to take care of yourself and wear warm clothes even when the sun is shining brightly !
Or at least bring a cardigan with you <3
lots ‘n’ lots of love ~

make up review : KIKO lipsticks / the search continues . . .

 Hey lovelies !Time for the next review !
I’ve been so fond of KIKO lately – they have great cosmetics for great prices !
I really love some of their brushes which have nice quality for very low prices <3
Well – enough blabbering about how great KIKO is .
 I guess you should try it out yourself to make your own opinion :)
(Not all products are recommendable :P )
As I already told you in my previous lipstick reviews I’ve been searching for my perfect dark red lipstick .
Not found yet even after my shopping haul at KIKO , but it’s getting warmer !
Psssht – please don’t mind my nails . . .
Let me present you the two KIKO lipsticks I bought :
 
The design is quite special and it looks really expensive :P
Now the coverage test (one simple stroke only ) :
Looks fine :)
The 609 Cherry Red one appears redder / lighter .
The 522 Black Cherry has high coverage – dark colours I guess :D It also appears to have a more purplish tone here . . .
Now to the applied on lips test :
 
result:
609 Cherry Red 
 ( 3 / 5 )
+ good coverage
+ nice price ( 5€ ) :D
– colour outcome is lighter than expected
– smudges a bit . . .
– said to be matte but is still quite shimmering . . .
– need for lipbalm to keep lips hydrated !
result:
522 Black Cherry
 ( 4 / 5 )
+ high coverage
+ applied on lips ( where else :P ) it has a nice dark red-purple-black tone
+ price is nice too ( 5€ ) :DD
Well . . . No 522 is a bit too dark to wear it every day . . . still searching for the perfect one . . .
No 609 is to light – not dark red at all . But I don’t regret buying any of the two lipsticks , because their colour is nice after all :)
 
(note : photo above is me with minimal make up on haha – that’s my every day make up :) 
I hope you liked my review ! There may be some more coming soon :)
BTW – did you have any KIKO experiences yet ?
Whether negative or positive , please let me know in the comments below <3

Make up review : Apocalips lip lacquer by RIMMEL

Hey lovelies !
As I already told you in my Denmark haul post I have got my hands on two lovely 
lip lacquers of the RIMMEL APOCALIPS series ~
Well, well, I really need to admit that I totally love them ! Why ?
I gotta tell you below :3 

This one is No. 601 Light Year 
I really love how it looks pretty natural , it’s like naturally Snowwhite’s lips *A*
It is my favourite lip colour right now and I take it with me all the time <3
Next one is . . 
No. 401 Aurora
Applying the lip laquer . . .
Yup, I also love this colour ! It’s a much brighter / redder than the other one thus I would wear it less often, I guess :3
Here’s a direct lip comparison starting with not wearing any lip lacquer <3
Overall rating :


4/5 stars
+ The price is nice (got them for 20 Kronen, that’s about 3€)
+ once dried the colour lasts long 
+ it doesn’t need any extra nurturing balm as it is pretty much nurturing by itself
+ lovely looking packaging
+ precision tip for applying
– the brighter colours seem to last longer than the nude ones . . .
– it does smudge if you don’t use the paper trick right after applying it 
All in all I would say that they are a better alternative to the Manhattan 24hours lip stain , which I have used before .
The one from Manhattan need extra nurturing lip balms. 
I love the colour that Manhattan does not have, which is also not glittery at all ( I hate glitter . . .  but Manhattan has many glittery ones ! ) PLUS I can wear the Light Year one for any occasion since it’s not too much ~

Hope you liked the review !

lots ‘n’ lots of love ~
