Make-Up Look | Warm Smokey Eyes, Peach Blush And Nude Lips

For today’s make-up look I went with one my favorite make-up combinations again: soft smokey eyes in warm fleshy tones, paired with peach blush and a subtle nude lip. Take a look!

On my eyes I’m wearing all Makeup Geek. Using Cosmopolitan (eyelid), Frappa (outer eye corner + crease), Artemis (inner eye corner) and Aphrodite from the Makeup Geek Manny MUA Eyeshadow Palette I created a subtle smokey eye in warm peachy tones.

On my lower waterline I applied the Makeup Geek Full Spectrum Eye Liner Pencil in Plumeria, a stunning plum red color. Next I applied a few licks of black mascara and some veeeeeery subtle liquid liner in my outer eye corner, and that was it for eyes.

Review | L’Oréal Infaillible Gel Crayon 24H Eyeliner

I’m too excited to bother with a proper intro today, so I’m just going to get straight down to business: I’ve been having some fun with the new L’Oréal Infaillible Gel Crayons (13 CHF) these past few days and I am IN LOVE!

You know I love my colored liners, so when I got the chance to try all six colors in the L’Oréal Infaillible Gel Crayon range I was of course over the moon. And by the time I’d swatched them all and played with all six colors in various make-up looks I was so over the moon that I couldn’t even see the moon anymore. Heck, about halfway through my testing marathon I was already far beyond Saturn. Because guys, the formula is sooooo good!

The L’Oréal Infaillible Gel Crayons have a soft, smooth texture that glides on like a dream without tugging at the waterline or scratching the skin, the pigmentation is absolutely INSANE and the longevity is super impressive. I like to wear my eyeliner on my waterline, but even there the colors stay perfectly put from AM to PM. And yet they’re easy to remove with waterproof make-up remover.

So again, I’m way way waaaaaay over the moon with the L’Oréal Infaillible Gel Crayon formula! If like me you’re into colorful eyeliner I highly suggest you check out these babies, because they’re absolutely stellar.

Colorful Rainbow Make-Up with L’Oréal

Today I’m keeping it fun and bright with a super colorful make-up look featuring rainbow smokey eyes and matte pink lips. The star products in this brightly colored FOTD? The new L’Oréal La Palette Gold eyeshadow palette, one of the new L’Oréal Infaillible Gel Crayons, the L’Oréal False Lash Superstar X Fiber Mascara and the L’Oréal Infaillible Lip Paint Matte in Hollywood Beige. Take a look!

L’Oréal La Palette Gold By Color Riche

L’Oréal describes their new La Palette Gold (27 CHF) as “an exclusive symphony of 10 gold sprinkled eyeshadows”. To create my colorful rainbow look I used the yellow shade on the inner half of my eyelid, the green in the middle and the eggplant purple on the outer half of my eyelid. Next I blended the very last shade in the palette in my crease and added a subtle inner corner highlight with the lightest shade from the palette.

To add even more color to the eye look – why stop when you’re at it, right? – I applied the L’Oréal Infaillible Gel Crayon (13 CHF) in Violet Va-Va-Voum (second color from the left) on my lower waterline. What a showstopper, huh? I’ll make sure to post a full review on the Infaillible Gel Crayon formula soon!

L’Oréal False Lash Superstar X Fiber Mascara

On my lashes I used L’Oréal’s new 2-step mascara (21.90 CHF). First I applied the lash-lengthening primer and then I added a second layer with the volumizing top coat. I’m not sure if the two-step process is doing much for my lashes though. I personally don’t feel like they look much different than when I use a traditional mascara. What do you think?

L’Oréal Infaillible Lip Paint Matte in Hollywood Beige

On my lips I’m wearing one of L’Oréal’s new matte liquid lipsticks, the Infaillible Lip Paint (16 CHF) in Hollywood Beige. It takes a while – a loooong while – for the color to set and become truly matte, but I really do love how effortlessly it applies and how comfortable it feels on my lips. And the color is fab.

Have you tried any of these L’Oréal products? Do you often wear colorful make-up?

Make-Up Look | Rose Gold + Ocean Green

For today’s FOTD I decided to pair rose gold eyeshadow with ocean green eyeliner. Take a look!

First I applied my Wet ‘n Wild Heart of Rose Color Icon Loose Pigment on my whole eyelid and then blended a bit of my Urban Decay Beware Eyeshadow into it to create a gradual smokey effect. Next I added some color to the eyes by outlining my lower waterline with the Makeup Geek Full Spectrum Eye Liner Pencil in Ocean, before finishing the look with a few licks of black mascara.

I didn’t want to take away any of the intensity of the eye look, so I decided to keep the rest of my make-up subtle. On my skin I’m wearing a combination of my Kiss Me Sunkiller Super Lasting Base and my Morphe Banana Powder, and on my cheeks is a light dusting of Rich Berry from my Smashbox L.A. Lights Blush & Highlight Palette.

And for lips I went with a very subtle nude in the form of the Sephora Rouge Shine in Love Letter, a muted rosy shade that goes with pretty much anything.
