Skull Mask Makeup

It's Halloween weekend here in Slovenia and I decided to try to make one more Halloween look. Skull is a classic and the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Halloween. I didn't wanted to do a classic skull makeup, so I did partial skull makeup in a way that it looks like I'm wearing skull mask. I tried to shade it to make it look more mask like. It's really simple and you don't need much to make it work, you can just use your regular makeup products.

New In (20)

Another post of few new bits that I received or bought. It's a mix of few staple repurchases as well as some new products that caught my eye. You'll find a short review of each.

Review: Blithe Patting Water Pack Energy Yellow Citrus & Honey and Tundra Chaga Pressed Serum

I haven't heard of Blithe as a brand before, but when I was researching these products, I found that they are pretty popular in terms of winning some beauty awards. Their page is Korean, so I can't read it. Basically, it's supposed to be a natural brand that doesn't test on animals. Their main goal is to prevent visible aging signs caused by pollution. Ingredients are supposed to be pure and packaged into modern formulas. Because it's also sold in Sephora, I would categorize it as high end skin care brand

Jolse often times has products that they give away for review purposes and you can apply. If you get chosen, they send the product to you and you write a review for your blog. I find it to be a great way of discovering new Korean skin care that I wouldn't notice otherwise.

My Favorite - Bronzers and Highlighters

I'm continuing my favorite posts with bronzers and highlighters. Bronzers are my least explored area, since I find it hard to find light shades in drugstore ranges. However, highlighters are my love and I have way too many of them.

When it comes to bronzers, I want something for lighter skin tone, either matte or just sheeny. I'm not a fan of shimmery bronzers, because I often times want bronzer to also slightly contour my face. My favorite highlighters are more of champagne and light gold shades, but I like different tones as well, considering that the formula is good. Sometimes I want something more metallic and sometimes it's all about a subtle sheen. 

Cute Bunny Makeup

Halloween is supposedly associated with disgusting, bloody and scary costumes, but since we in Slovenia don't really celebrate Halloween, why not create something more cute. Maybe I'll do something more Halloween appropriate too, if I have time, but for now here's a cute looking bunny that you can use for any costume party. I gathered some ideas from the internet and threw them together in my own way. Who doesn't like bunnies, right?!

Review: Noelle Makeup Brush 19 and Makeup Brush Case

When a was on a day trip in VaraĹždin (Croatia), I found this makeup brand called Noelle in their Bipa. As far as I could found on the internet, this must be Croatian brand, but correct me, if I'm wrong. Their makeup products are available in Bipa stores. Brushes were really affordable and I'm a sucker for eye brushes, so I got the blending one. I also bought their makeup brush case which is really well made and great to travel with.

My Favorite - Powders

When it comes to powders, I prefer loose transparent ones. At first there were only compact powders available in the drugstores and I remember most brands didn't have loose powders yet, let alone those transparent shades. As they become popular, drugstore brands also started to do these types and now you can find them in most local drugstores. I prefer these loose powders, because they have very fine powder particles, they blend into nothing, so you can combine them with different shades of foundations and in general look more lightweight on the skin.

I use powders to set my foundation almost all the time, maybe a bit less in the winter. I don't like sticky foundation feel, plus my T zone tends to get really oily, so I like locking it in with powder. Powder also provides a smoother base for any other powder products that I put on top and prevents my foundation to move too much.

September 2018 Favorites

This has to be one of those rare months that I'm actually including more old products in my favorites instead of the new ones. I've been testing some new products too, but mostly, my makeup has been super simple and for that I always go back to my tried and loved products.
