♕ Make Up Look ~ Padmé Amidala ♕

I just realized I slightly messed up the blog schedule, lol XD This post was supposed to go online before the previous one... Oh well, no big deal I guess!

I made this look to celebrate May 4th aka the Star Wars Day. It's inspired by my favourite character, Padmé Amidala, formerly Queen Amidala of Naboo.
I actually did the very same look (well, kind of) last year, on the same day - but it never made it to the blog sadly, although I really, really loved it. So I thought: let make it again AND post it on the blog, too.

♕ Make Up Look ~ Tiny Heart Liner ♕

Today's look is an interesting one, not because of its style/design - but because it was basically the result of an accident that almost lead me to remove it and give up. Instead of doing so, though, I racked my brains and found a way to save what I could - and I end up transforming it from a romantic blended makeup to an editorial kind of look.
And even then I was pretty unsure whether to post it or not... But I ended up loving it more than I anticipated! *-*

♕ Make Up Look ~ Moonlight Cut Crease ♕

Let's have a small break from graphic liners (but they will be back veeery soon), today I have a cut crease look to show you! A round cut crease, to be more precise. I haven't done one in a while - like, more than one year.

I named this look "Moonlight" because it makes me think of the moon's reflection on the sea... Or the moon shining, outlined against the night sky.

♕ Make Up Look ~ Ocean Waves ♕

Another graphic liner look today - I swear, the next one will feature a different technique and a more classical winged line XD
After the warm, fiery tones of my previous make up, which resembled a flame, I created a cool-toned look that flows like ocean waves. And of course I couldn't help but adding dramatic eyeliner - a double winged liner! Like, one wing isn't enough... Let's make two!

♕ Make Up Look ~ Fire Style ♕

After a very short break from graphic look... Here we go again XD The previous look was a sort of test run, a warm up to inaugurate KVD's Tattoo Liner; next, I did a look that I ended up not liking (if you follow me on Instagram you already know what I'm talking about), which I'm going to post here on my blog... But then I did this look, which I'm really proud of :D

The eyeliner's shape, the shades and the glitters I used made me think of a flame... Thus the title!

♕ Make Up Look ~ Teal & Glitters ♕

Today's make up is very simple and easy - no crazy liner styles this time XD I specifically made this look to try my new eyeliner - Tatto Liner in Trooper by Kat Von D Beauty. As you might remember, I mentioned it in my Prodotti PRO 2017 post (aka all the products I want to try during this year); it was at the very top of my list and I'm SO happy to finally own it *_*

I was actually going to post my first impressions about it today, you know? But since I have an event in about two weeks that is just perfect for an all-day-long stress test... I decided to postpone it, so I can include the test's results after the event. Meanwhile, of course, I'm going to show you all the looks I've created with this liner ;D

♕ Make Up Look ~ Curved Liner 2.0 ♕

Back to the graphic liner looks! I've already done a curved liner makeup a while ago (here, inspired by @swayzemorgan) - totally loved it and I decided to do it again. Though this time I slightly changed the design, I didn't wanted to be a mere variation of the previous look.

The curve is smaller, compared to the first Curved Liner look I made - plus, it frames, hugs the lid shades/glitters till the inner corner; I added some dots and sharp edges to contrast the soft curve on the outer corner. Overall, I like this version even more the first one! ;D

♕ Make Up Look ~ Emeralds are a Mermaid's Best Friend ♕

Today's look was inspired, once again, by Laura aka TheClassicalMua on Instagram - one of my very favourite artists on there - and features again some glitters by GlitterTubes.

I didn't know how to name this look until the very last second. I just knew it gave me emeralds vibes and thus I wanted a name that could connect it to that gemstone - but nothing came up to my mind until this afternoon. At some point I remembered the song "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friends" and I thought, well... Emeralds could definitely be a mermaid's best friends, right? ;D

♕ Make Up Look ~ Glittery Ocean Eyes ♕

Now that I've posted my first impressions about GlitterTubes' pressed glitter (here), it's finally time to show you all the looks that I've created so far using these beauties *___* Brace yourself, I already made about ten glitter looks (if you follow me on Instagram then you have already seen most of them!) - so my blog will be overwhelmed by glitters for the next weeks XD

This was the very first look I made using these glitters, a sparkly gradient with graphic eyeliner. The reason why I did a gradient was... Because I couldn't choose just one shade to begin with XD Although I knew what kind of look I wanted to do, I kept changing my mind every two seconds - so the whole process this time took way longer than usual. Way, way longer - I almost lost the natural light for my pics XD
Anyway without any further ado, let's get started!

♕ Make Up Look ~ Empty Liner ♕

Let's get back on track with makeup looks - I'm a little behind, whoops! Need to catch up, one way or another.
In today's post I'm going to show you another look featuring my eyeliner addiction/craziness XD I can't help, whenever I see a new eyeliner style I feel the urge to try it!

I saw this kind of "empty eyeliner" (as I named it) in a look by @thepryncess - and I thought I'd give it a try, although I ended up slightly changing the shape and adding some details.

♕ Part of My World ♕ GlitterTubes ~ Pressed Glitters ♕
{Overview, First Impressions, Swatches}

Taking a little break from my make up looks because I have a big first impressions post  for you today! 
If you follow me on Instagram then you already know that some weeks ago I received, as a gift from a friend, a selection of pressed glitters by GlitterTubes - an indie brand that sells both loose and pressed glitters, along with rhinestones, flakes, sequins and, of course, glitter glue. 

It all started back in April, when I read Sabina's post about these pressed glitters - I immediately got curious, as I've always wanted to use glitters in my looks (plus I love everything that shines, the more sparkly the better!). Long story short, a few days afterwards a lovely friend of mine surprised me a bunch of beautiful, glittering pans *___* 
I've been using these beauties for quite some times now (and again, if you follow me on Instagram you surely noticed XD) and here are my impressions & thoughts!

♕ The Pokémon Series ~ Sylveon ♕
{Eeveelutions Mini Series}

Happy 1st of May everyone!
I know, bet you're thinking: "a Pokémon look again?" - since I posted Glaceon's just a couple of days ago XD You see, I decided to go ahead and post the last eeveelutions inspired makeup today as I have way too much looks to blog about left behind!

So here's the final episode of the Eeveelutions mini series (part of The Pokémon Series) ♥
We're done with Gen IV eeveelutions so now there's only one more to see, since Gen VI featured only one new evolution (sadly). This is actually my favourite one along with Vaporeon, please meet Sylveon, the most elegant and sweet and kawaii of all eeveelutions! *___*

Sylveon, the Intertwining Pokémon.
Type: Fairy 
"Sylveon affectionately wraps its ribbon-like feelers around its Trainer's arm as they walk together. It sends a soothing aura from its ribbon-like feelers to calm fights. "
