Art deco for beginners

Guys! I’m super excited! For those who read my last post, know that my whole what-am-I-going-to-do-with-my-life reflexion led me somewhere eventually! I thought a lot about it and made some research and I had like a revelation. This is still a little bit unsure, I need to think about it really really seriously, but I think that I found my way.

I want to be a wedding planner.

This regroups a lot of things that I like, a lot of things that I can do and… a lot of things that I like to do heh! It feels so great, it’s so amazing. I really started to think that I would never know this feeling. It’s such a relief and such a joy, I’m so happy! And of course, there will be some project updates here. Keep fingers crossed for me!

Apart from that, I’ve got some nail art for you sweeties.

Well, my hands are pretty red… It was cold, but I didn’t think that it would look so obvious on the pictures haha.

Anyway, here’s a mini-tutorial :

  1. Apply a base colour all over the nail. I chose Kiko Holographic nail lacquer n°400.
  2. Draw a center band with another nail polish. I chose Kiko Holographic nail lacquer n°401. Well yes, I was in a holographic mood.
  3. Draw the pattern with some black nail polish. I used Agnès b. nails pen in Black Graphic.

The colours I chose make the whole thing look very soft. It needs more pep’s. I think it’s prettier if the colours “clash”. Next time!

Peacock somehow

Hello sweeties,

Last makeup tutorial with the Cameleon palette. It’s a peacock feather inspired eyelook. I was feeling pretty proud about it, as I’m not comfortable at all with colours, as you now know. I said I was. Because last week the blogger from Tête de Thon posted that beautiful peacock inspired eye makeup, and I was like “Ok, my try is bullshit” haha. But I don’t really tend to be that artistic. I don’t have the patience, I’m just good at looking the others doing so and be fascinated.

When I ended the makeup, I first thought “Wow. But I could never go out like that”.  But I look at those pictures, the more I think it’s doable. With a nude lipstick and a cute spring dress.

High Violet

Hello sweeties,

I’m not very comfortable with colours for the eye make-up. I always use brown, bronze, golden or beige shades for my eyes. “Neutrals”. I think it’s because it’s reassuring. I know it will suit my brown eyes in any case. It also suits my personnality, I guess. I’m someone who is pretty calm and discrete and this is what those colours inspire me. But sometimes, I like to surprise myself and try some things. Like when I discovered that green shades could work quite well on me (well, OK, that wasn’t that much risky, but still)(let me feel brave in my own way). So, the other day I tried a purpley eye look.

I’d say it’s nice for spring, fresh and delicate. I’d see myself wearing this make-up with a virginal dress, a wreath made of flowers on my head, running barefoot in a field of poppies and puppies. Or I’d just put a plaid shirt and a pair of jeans and buy enough to fill the fridge up. Like the other day. I wore my NYX Indian Pink Round Lipstick (ex favourite nude lipstick) though, to preserve my dignity.

Tanned eyes

Hello sweeties,

It’s late May and it’s cold and rainy in Paris. Yes, it is. As the weather seems to want to go back to autumn, I decided to rebel. Yes, I did. With my eye make-up. With golden, bronze and other warm shades. We lead the revolution we can.

The result is soft and discrete. Will I dare to say that it’s cozy? A cozy make-up, that doesn’t make much sense. But, I mean, it’s easy to wear. There’s no eyeliner required, you don’t need to be very precise about the application, as the eyeshadows shades are from the same family and as you blend as much as possible to create some kind of halo. Let’s say it’s cozy.
Oh and I wore some orangey lipstick with that. Ok, I didn’t take a lot of risk, but at least it matches.

Favorite nude so far

Hello sweeties,

I have to show you my favorite nude lipstick so far. It’s from Agnès b., in the b. perfect line, in the Roses à porter collection (oh my, it’s never ending), and the shade is Rose Feutrée (phew).

b perfect Rose Feutrée 1 © Winab perfect Rose Feutrée 3 © Winab perfect Rose Feutrée 2 © WinaWhen I dyed my hair blonde, I discovered the beauty of nude lipsticks. Before that, I was like “nude lipstick? Bullshit, why not just keeping your lips natural then?”, but actually, nude lipsticks have their utility. The difference might be subtile, but that will be what makes your final look perfect. You just need a lip colour that is slightly pinkier, peachier ou beigier and it makes all the difference.

See how beautiful this is? That peachy pink delicately warms my lip colour up and it’s way much flattering for my skin colour than my natural lip colour. The colour isn’t too light, I just think it’s perfect for my skin tone.
This is clearly not a matte lipstick, rather a semi-matte maybe, but it’s perfect, the rendering is very natural.

This baby costs 18,50€, which I think is very very expensive, considering the size of the lipstick (it’s smaller than my thumb)(and my thumb is reasonable). But there are regular sales on the website (fr), so, just be aware and maybe you’ll get it for 5€ like I did.

Green it all

Hello sweeties,

First make-up *tutorial* here yey! I’m in a green mood these last times. I must say that Hélène’s and Margaux’s green make-ups has something to do with that.

I did a greens gradient, with some pearly touches to illuminate. There’s like a nice beetle effect or whatever, but I didn’t manage to take pics of it, meh. Hope you like it anyway.
