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,

Favorite Mascaras and Lipsticks ǀ March

Sunday, March 16, 2014
Hey dolls!Lipsticks and mascaras are something we all use on a daily basis;in my case,they alternate and change every month.Thought I'd share some of my loves from this month.Sit back and enjoy!


















[MF 2000 Calories, Bourjois Volume Glamorous Max Definition, Manhattan Supersize False Lash Look]



MF 2000 Calories Mascara:This one i s a classic that everyone loves.It has thicker and longer bristles at one end and shorter ones at the other.It's great for achieving voluminous lashes which are extended at the end.The small bristles are great for lower lashes and lashes at the inner corner. 5/5

 Bourjois Volume Glamorous Max Definition: This brush is plastic and it has short bristles.When I first bought it,it was quite liquidy,but after few times using it, it became drier-which I prefer.This mascara gives you amazing volume and length.It does not smear trough the day and it's easy to reapply if needed. 5/5

  Manhattan Supersize False Lash Look:This formula is quite on the liquid side,but I like it never the less.The brush is pretty big so it's not really good for inner corner or lower lashes.I love using this at the very ends of my lashes,as it gives amazing length.That being said,I do find that it kind of sticks my lashes together if I apply a bit more, and then I have to take it off and reapply again. 4/5

 [From left to right:Catrice Ultimate Shine060:Teddy Brown, Catrice Ultimate Color 010:Be Natural, Wet n Wild E902C:Bare It All]

These three have been my best lips friends this month;I'm usually a dark lip kind of a girl,but these are so lovely;it's impossible not to love them.


-The Wet n Wild one is very matte so I often use some lipgloss ot lip base, or I just simply leave it like that.
-Catrice in 010 is a shiny,creamy lipstick that glides on very smoothly.It's very moisturizing but I do feel I need to reapply,it must be because of the creamy formulation.The shade is a very light nude,great for a 'no makeup' look.
-Teddy bown is a shiny, brown color.A tad bit shinier than Be Natural, but just as creamy.A really lovely shade of brown, amazing for everyday. Same as Be Natural,I need to reapply trough the day.

That is it for this week dolls,I hope you enjoyed this post and you come back for more!I'll be inactive on my social media for a while,just an fyi.New post coming on Wednesday/Thursday Central European Time.Have a lovely rest of the day.Lots of love,
