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.

Rainbows and unicorns and cameleons and stop.

Hello sweeties,

I received my Sasa.com orders the other day and it looks like this :

Sasa © WinaChristmas in May. I am so excited. I can’t wait to try all that. But patience, patience, it will be done at the right time. I opened only 3 things : Sasatinnie Japanese Accessory Facial Cleansing, Naruko Rose & Snow Fungus Aqua Cubic Complex and Cameleon 36 Color Professional Eyeshadow Palette (God, that’s long names).

First thing that I noticed when I opened it is that it smells like the old eyeshadows. You know, our mothers ones. It’s a powdery smell, almost reassuring, that I don’t really find in actual eyeshadows. The eyeshadows size is very small (it’s like the size of an average thumb nail) but the intensity of most of them is pretty good. With an eyeshadow base, it really is satisfying and resistance is nice, it doesn’t crease much, although I have greasy eyelids (yurk). The eyeshadows are very pearly and some shades are gorgeous. It cost me less than US$8, so it’s good value.

Bad news is that :

  • It’s a bit powdery, so beware of fall out when applying
  • the black eyeshadow pigmentation is so disappointing, more so as it’s the only matte of the palette
  • The “make up collection” is written in Comic sans MS, which should be forbidden
  • It seems that it’s not on the website anymore, but I guess you can find it elsewhere

[Sorry for the swatches quality, it was under natural light yet, but anyway]

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.
