♕ Part of My World ♕ Makeup Geek Cosmetics ~ Eyeshadow Pans Haul! ♕
{Swatches, Comparisons & First Impressions}

I'm so excited I'm finally able to post this haul! I had to postpone and reschedule it so many times I was seriously loosing hope of ever being able to post it.

This year I was lucky enough to receive ten Makeup Geek Cosmetics eyeshadows as birthday present ♥ I've been willing to try out their shadows from quite some time - so you can imagine how excited I was (and still am) to get all these beauties *___*

♕ Helix Eyeliner ♕

I've just realized that I completely forgot to post this look on here o___O" I was SO sure I posted it - like, weeks ago, right after New Year's Day. Where-was-my-head? D:
Well, at least I noticed in time - poor this look, forgotten in the drafts section -   and I'm going to get back on track this very second!

So, in today's post I'm going to show you my very first attempt at the helix eyeliner technique - which is pretty famous on Instagram, I've seen sooo many different styles and finally I decided to give it a try. This was another good occasion to use Klimt - aka the ever-present-lately Dazzle Liner by NABLA Cosmetics aka my current obsession.

♕ Fairy Queen Make Up #2 ♕
{Inspired by a Sergey/Milk1422 Face Chart}

Hey everyone! I'm currently stuck in bed with a very bad cold, unable to complete the Makeup Geek haul post - I'm quite unlucky with that, am I not? - but thankfully I have a special makeup to show you so... Here it is!

Today I'm going to show you another inspired look - to be more precise, inspired by a face chart made by an amazingly skilled artist on Instagram, Sergey aka @Milk1422. Check him out, you won't regret it, he creates the most stunning and artistic face charts ever.
This particular one gave me fairy vibes - so I considered this look like a 2.0 version of my previous Fairy Queen look... Hence the title ;D

♕ Graphic Liner Inspired by Lucinda212 ♕

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, those past two weeks were crazy and I had almost zero time to sit down and blog peacefully. Finally, finally, weekend's here and I have some spare time to write!

I'm still working on the Makeup Geek haul post, which is taking way longer than I anticipated (I took a bunch of pictures and made a lot of swatches and comparisons) - so, since it's not ready yet, today I'm posting this graphic makeup look I did no later than 10 days ago. It's inspired, once again, by one of my favourite IG artist's work: Lucinda212.

♕ The Mermaid Series ♕ Princess Ariel ♕
{2017 Edition}

The Mermaid Series is back... With a very special makeup look!
A personal tradition of mine is to create a look inspired by my favourite Disney Princess (guess who XD) on my birthday... And so I did this year, of course! Although I am a liiittle late with this post since my birthday was two days ago, whoops XD

Every year I manage to make the same makeup look different to the previous ones. The first one (2015 version) was created using mainly mineral makeup; last year's (2016 version) was way more Nabla-centered.
So... "what now?" you may wondering.
Well, I was lucky enough to receive some MakeUp Geek eyeshadows as birthday gift from a family member! (The haul post with swatches will be up next week, I'm already working on it!)
So, that being said, this year's version was the perfect opportunity to welcome this brand into my stash - thus it was very MUG-centered! *_*

♕ Holiday Make Up ♕

Holidays are now over (sigh!) but I still have to show you the look I wore on Christmas Night! Dishonor on me, dishonor on my cow XD Seriously, excuse me for the awful delay - but here it is at last! Better late than never I guess ^^"

Christmas Eve was crazy a day - I had tons of things to do, stuff to cook and so on - I had very little spare time left for my make up. I had to get ready very quickly, as you can imagine, and thus it was not the moment to experiment and try new styles/techniques. But! It was the right occasion to try one look by MrDanielMakeUp - precisely, one of his holiday make up looks. I chose the one that featured my current obsession aka the Dazzle Liner in Klimt, paired with red and warm shades (here you can watch his tutorial on YT).
It felt quite Christmas-y, and since anytime is a good time to use Klimt... I decided to give it a try!

♕ New Year's Make Up ♕

First post of 2017, yay! :D Happy (belated) New Year everyone!

Today I'm going to show you the look I wore on New Year's Eve! I was very inspired that day - it was one of those days when my inspiration is way too much, actually XD I felt the excitement for the new year approaching, so I wanted to create something meaningful to celebrate! But I had so many ideas, very different from each other - and I was so torn.
At first I thought about doing a mermaid look. Then I thought I could do something graphic. I also considered doing a classic, chic and princess-y look with Swarovski crystals. Again, I was SO torn.
