♕ Make Up Look ~ Spirit of the Ocean ♕

Hey there guppies ♥ Long time no see!
Sorry for the huge lack of new posts, I've been crazily busy with my midterm exams at the makeup school I'm attending - which now are over, but we're already planning our finals! That's insane, I know, this course it's really demanding - totally worth the effort though.
So bear with me in the next few months while I work on my final exams!

Today I'm going to show you a very simple look I totally LOVE - using some of my favourite eyeshadows by Sugarpill and some amazing blue glitters I got a while back! Not exactly an appropriate look for the current season but don't worry, I do have a couple of Christmas looks ready to post on here ;D

♕ Make Up Look ~ Crystal Flames ♕
{Feat. Nabla Cosmetics ~ Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette}

In my latest post I've talked about the Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette aka NABLA Cosmetics' first eyeshadow palette ever - which, by the way, it's still sold out; I know a lot of you (and myself as well) were hoping/expecting it to be restocked in time for Black Friday, but unfortunately that didn't happened and there's still no restock date yet.
Anyway, here's another makeup look I made using exclusively the Dreamy palette - which ended up being slightly festive, despite I wasn't going for a Christmas-y look at all XD

~ Special thanks to Marta who suggested me "Crystal Flames" as name for this look!
Much appreciated - and really appropriate ♥

♕ Part of my World ♕ Nabla Cosmetics ~ Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette ♕
{First Impressions, Swatches, Comparisons}

When NABLA Cosmetics announced they were going to release their first eyeshadow palette, the hype skyrocketed right away in less than a second. Their eyeshadows are always been extremely appreciated by both makeup enthusiasts and pro makeup artists, so no wonder that this palette was such a success! 

The Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette debuted on October 18th and it sold out in just a couple of days - quite a record. It hasn't been restocked yet, and there's not a restock date either - which is the main reason why I didn't post my impressions earlier. I took my time to try each shade - not only on myself, but on other people too. I've used this palette a lot in class and tested it on several skin types and different complexions, so I've quite a clear idea about this palette now ;D

"The Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette is the perfect balance between Fantasy, Elegance and Practicality."

♕ Make Up Look ~ Dark Dreams ♕
{Feat. Nabla Cosmetics ~ Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette}

First look using the new Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette by NABLA Cosmetics, which debuted about one month ago (geez, time flies!). I'm working on a detailed first impressions post about this palette - hopefully coming up this week, or next one at the very latest. (I don't usually wait all this time to post an overview, but this time I didn't rush since the palette went sold out in about two days and it hasn't been restocked yet)
Meanwhile, I thought I could post this look I made during the Halloween period, since it features almost all eyeshadows from this palette! ;D

♕ Make Up Look ~ Space Princess ♕

With today's post I'm officially catching up with my pre-ring light looks - so starting from the next post you'll regularly see better quality pictures (and my skin won't look so different anymore every time XD)

I made this look just to try this particular graphic eyeliner - inspired by Laura @theclassicalmua - and of course I couldn't miss the opportunity to use a ton of glitters XD And once I was done, I realized it gave me some kind of space vibes - hence the title :3

♕ Make Up Look ~ Pansy ♕
{Feat. Sugarpill Cosmetics & Glitter Palace}

Second look using my new Sugarpill eyeshadows (I talked about them in this post)! After the previous one - tropical and summery - I decided to make a deeper look using different shades. As you can probably tell by the title, I was inspired by pansies - the black, purple and yellow ones, which are one of my favourite flowers in terms of colours *_*

♕ Make Up Look ~ Tropical Eyes ♕

Now that Halloween is over, it's time for me to get back on track and resume the normal eye looks publication. I'm still a couple of looks behind - but bear with me, we're almost there!

Today's look may feel a little out of place, since it's so tropical while we're here, in the middle of the Autumn, wearing warm and cozy clothes. Mind you, I don't relate my looks to the season, I do wear the brightest shades even in middle winter - and viceversa, I feel comfortable with doing deep, dark looks during summer :D
But I'm wandering off, let's focus back on this makeup. There's a specific reasons why it's so colorful - and it's because this is the very first look I've ever done using Sugarpill's eyeshadows, back in August. Very bright, very summery, with a sprinkle of glitters... Perhaps a little mermaid-ish, too? ♥ The perfect way to inaugurate my newest eyeshadows ;D
