How many of you have tried/used NYX makeup?

I haven’t tried it but I’d like to. Because I am a makeup junkie I really don’t need even more makeup. Therefore I want to know the top five items I need in my life from NYX. What are your favorites. Let me know!

Sarajevo shopping

During my Sarajevo trip I only did a little bit of shopping. As I was traveling with only a carry on I couldn’t really but too much. These few makeup items I picked up were more because I needed them, than anything else. I did get a few more things but I left them at the apartment because I\m going back in  just a few weeks.

Here is what I picked up:

Sarajevo style

This was my everyday style while in Sarajevo with natural makeup!

Wore this style every day…flats…jeans…and a loose top, because it was so hot.

Makeup bag faves!

As I was packing last night for another over nigh trip I decided to snap a few pictures and show you a couple of my current favourites.

Here they are:

I got this pallette from my sister and I absolutely love it. It was a ebay order she did with very industrial packaging so I actually don’t know the name of it…I’ll try and figure that out.

My fave eyeshadow palette at the moment. Clearly this is a Naked palette dupe. It’s by Warpaint Cosmetics.

Picnic in the Park

This is my makeup of the weekend. And I literally mean it, I wore it Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I mean I took it off at night and put it on every morning. I like my shades of pink and this look it super pretty for spring.

I’m wearing the Bobbi Brown bronzing powder in Maui. My cousin gave this to me, last summer during her wedding weekend.

And on my lips I’m wearing a Tanya Burr lipgloss, Picnic in the Park, I picked this up in London last summer.

A dupe

Have you ladies tried the Benefit Porefessional primer? I heard a lot about it and was gonna purchase it when I received a sample size in my Glossybox. When I used it the first time it reminded me of a product I had already used before. It was the Maybelline Instant Anti-Age The Smoother Primer, in the pot.

I think they have now discontinued this specific product and have come out with the Instant Age Rewind Primer, which I also love.

Both of these primers give me the same exact result and they feel exactly the same.

Have you ever had that happen to you before?

What is your favorite primer?

Sleek Catrice

I love spring, it’s my favorite season of the year. I like it less because of pollen and allergies. Yesterday I couldn’t understand the headache I was having. This morning I woke up with puffy eyes and then I got it, it’s allergy season.

To try to cover up the puffiness I did my makeup in a hurry before heading to work.

I’m wearing my usual base with this Sleek blush called Life’s a Peach and Catrice Cosmetics lipgloss in the shade 070, Very Very Rasberry.

LOTD : Glossy pink

Last night I was feeling ill, I ended up snoozing on the sofa with the TV on in the background all evening. I also had a major headache and had to take a painkiller before going to bed.

This morning I woke up feeling so much better and refreshed. It’s been an intense week, I think I just needed a break and to switch off.

I didn’t know what lipstick to choose so I closed my eyes and just picked one from my drawer of lipsticks. Ended up with a lipstick I got in a Glossybox two years ago. I don’t think I’ve ever worn it before but I made myself put it on and I actually like it. I already got a compliment on it walking into my office building this morning.

The pictures don’t really show the true color. It’s not as pink as on the top picture and it’s also not as orange as on the bottom picture, it’s a mix in between and really pretty.

Chipmunk cheeks!!!

I’ve gotten the question about my cheeks quite a few times. What do I do and how do I contour. To be honest, I don’t! I don’t know how to contour that well…I just apply bronzer on my cheekbones. And they become defined like this. Of course it’s not all make up. It comes from my dads side of the family, my sister and a few of my cousins have them as well. Some more than others.

I’m wearing a Elizabeth Arden lipstick, if anyone knows the shade, it’s a shiny nude one…please let me know…!!!

LOTD : Reflecting Bloom

IMG_5188

My lip combo today is Lumene Natural Code lipstick in the shade 3 Nude Beige with IsaDora Express Star gloss over it, it’s in the shade 54 Reflecting Bloom. I have the full size version but I like the travel size better because it’s easy to bring along for touch ups during the day.
