I enjoy doing these posts because it’s funny to look back on your makeup and hairstyles. I genuinely try to use everything in my collection because it would be a waste otherwise. From time to time I go through my drawers and see if I want to throw anything away and sometimes you come across such a gem… That happened this February!

My eyemakeup is so minimal it’s not even worth mentioning. All I used was a sparkly/silver eyeshadow all over the lid. I tightlined with MAC ‘Blacktrack’ Fluidline and applied a couple of coats of Chanel Le Volume mascara. Very simple and quick as I don’t have a lot of time in the morning.

The star of the show is (believe it or not) e.l.f ‘Gypsy’ lipstick. I never wear pink lipsticks as I’m afraid they will make my teeth look yellow. I have had this color for ages and when I went through my collection to see which products I would give to my mother and sister, I came across this one. I tried it on and I wondered why I had never worn this before! It’s pretty intense because of my pale skintone. Sometimes I wear it straight from the bullet, other times I like to dab it onto my lips. This lipstick costs only 1E and there’s seriously nothing wrong with it. SUCH a bargain!

Eyebrows & face:
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder ‘Medium Brown’ & Maybelline Brow Drama ‘Dark Brown’.
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation ‘Gobi’, NARS Creamy Radiant concealer ‘Chantilly’ under my eyes, Catrice Camouflage Cream ‘010 Ivory’ on my chin (some spots/scars). Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder ‘Ethereal Light’. NARS ‘Laguna’ bronzer, MUA blush ‘Bubblegum’ and Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick ‘Beige’ to highlight my cheekbones.

Do you like wearing pink lipsticks?
