5 Natural Makeup Essentials

Saturday, January 10, 2015

Hello!First of all,Happy New Year!I wish you all the best in the upcoming year. I'm sorry I was absent for 4 whole months but,to be honest, it was something I expected due to school and so on.
Either way, I wanted to share my 5 essentials for a good natural makeup look, as it's something I wear every day. 
 
















 

Number 1: A good mascara | A good mascara as in a mascara that will separate your lashes and make them look naturally voluminous and long. I've decided to chose MF's Masterpiece Transform as it's great for separating your lashes right at the root and elongating them. Also, I would like to point out Maybelline's Lots of Lashes mascara-one of my top top favorites.
















 

Number 2:The base | A natural looking,glowy base is one of the key components of a natural looking makeup. (At least in my opinion) You don't necessarily have to have a dewy foundation/tinted moisturizer. I like to use an illuminator or a illuminating creme (such as the Corine de Farme illuminating hydrating moisturizer or the illuminator from NYX). I also adore liquid highlighters. I use the one from Catrice, which I reviewed here.


 Number 4: A medium brown (matte) eyeshadow | A medium brown eyeshadow is kind of a must in a natural makeup look. In my opinion, it's best if that eyeshadow is matte as it will look more natural. The thing is, with just this one eyeshadow you can do your entire eye-makeup. You can intensify it in the crease and add more on the lower lash line for a more night time look. (The one from the picture is from Pupart palette no.1)

Number 4:Blusher | I love using a peach or a light pink color when doing a natural looking makeup because they will usually give you a natural, pinched cheek looking blush. This blush tint is great as it literally looks like a natural blush and the other blush is a peach powder version which I love dusting at the top of my cheeks. (Catrice Tint and H&M Dazzling Peach)

 

 












Number 5:Lip Tint | On everyday basis I love using a lip tint or a tinted balm rather than a lipstick simply because it's easier and low-maintenance. I think the Baby Lips are perfect for that because they give a slight tint to your lips and moisturize them at the same time. (My favorite are the Peach Kiss and Cherry Me)

I'm sorry I've been so absent and lazy, I promise I will try to be more active around here. On that note, I decided that I will be renaming my blog as I'm not happy with 'LipstickJunkie' anymore,at all. Until I find a name that I'm 100% happy with, my blog will be named after me. (Laura Palmer)

Have a lovely weekend,

Style Crushes: August

Sunday, August 10, 2014
Hey dolls!It's mid-August already and I recently realized I completely eliminated the 'Style Crushes' posts from my blog.
In case you're new, Style Crushes is basically a compilation of pictures that I found inspiring outfit-wise in a certain month. I really want to do an outfit post myself, but I don't think that will be possible before I get a new camera.

The pictures are found on Pinterest. Notify me where credit is due.





In overall, lately I've been really into simple pieces that have some sort of interesting detail or print included to liven up the outfit.I hope you enjoyed or felt somewhat inspired.


By the way, you can find me on Tumblr, where I spend most of my days.

Until next time,

Summer Haulin': Beauty & Lanterns

Friday, August 08, 2014
Hey dolls!
I'm sorry for disappearing for almost two months. I haven't been inspired to do anything, even outside from this blog. I've had ('m having?) a great creative block and I decided the only way to break trough it is to to anything, really.

Anyways, I didn't buy much this month as we are currently re-painting the entire house. That being said, I've been more into house decor lately. I, however, didn't want to bore you with that so I only included a few cute lanterns I bought recently. (I have this strange fascination with lanterns. They're amazing.)

Treaclemoon: one ginger morning [i only now realized it's not i love..cosmetics]
Maybelline Baby Lips: Peach Kiss
Wet'n'Wild Lipliner: Fab Fuchsia

Maybelline Great Lash: Lots of Lashes



 
Catrice: Walk On The Coraline


LaCroa: Nourishing Hair Mask (Argan & Macadamia Oil)
[A Croatian brand.Which I also did not realize.]
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer No. 20
Garnier BB Cream: Light [the other one was too dark ]

...last, but certainly not least,
The Lanterns from Jysk

I'm completely in love with these lanterns! They're so cute and you could just put them anywhere literally to add certain loveliness to the space. Also, I still haven't tried the mask from above. When I do I'll let you know. Also, if I find any of these products 'specially interesting, I'll do a review.

P.S. Expect some name changing soon!

Much love,
Laura x
