NOTD with Essence "Fall for me" pastel blue

Hi everyone,
I was shopping yesterday and found this gorgeous spring/summer colour at Essence. The formula ist quite thick while the brush is quite thin. This is not a good combination. I used 2 thick coats which dried quite fast plus one coat Seche Vite above and got a great finish.
Unfortunately the staying power was not overwhelming, after 1 day the polish chipped off from 2 of my nails without doing hard work with hands.
Probably it is better to put on 3 thin layers for more staying power?! Well, nevertheless I love this colour, it reminds me of a swimming pool, yeeaah, suuummmeeer!!!!! :-)))

FOTD MAC pigments "mega rich (LE)" and "push the edge"

Hey beauties!

It's hard times for FOTD's at the moment, because,  my skin sucks a lot. Doesn't matter how much I sleep, I look tired in the last days all the time. And, I do not have photoshop. So please take all this into consideration while looking at the pics.
I suppose I need holidays :-))
I have seen some tutorials with the combination of orange/gold and purple and wanted to try this out.
See below which products I used.

- MAC Vanilla e/s (highlight, tearduct)
- MAC mega rich pigment (Lid)
- MAC push the edge pigment (Crease, lower lash line, outer corner)
- MAC "star violet" e/s (for blending push the edge upwards)
- MAC paparazz-she e/s (LE) (lower lash line)
- MAC designer purple pearlglide liner (LE) (as a liner on lid and lower lash line)
- P2 tinted brow gel
- P2 powder brow set
- P2 lash bomb mascara

- MAC studio fix fluid
- Estee Lauder double wear concealer
- The balm "sexy mama" powder
- MAC MSF "cheeky bronze" (LE) (as a blush)

- MAC CCB "madly magenta"

I know, madly magenta was not quite the matching lipcolour for the eye make-up. But I looooooveee this colour used on lips as it is incredibly opaque and flattering and non drying lips.

I curled my hair with a straightener a little to bring in some volume. This is my standard hair updo, I am very lazy with hair styling and take more time for my make-up all the time :-))

FOTD with Bare Minerals and MAC Sweet and Punchy e/s

Hi beauties!
I am in spring mood and need some colour! That's why I grabbed MAC Sweet and Punchy e/s from last years To the Beach LE. This very vibrant yellowish green is a quite unusual colour and I have to use it carefully around my eyes to not look zombieish :-)) I decided to use it only in the first third of my upper lid.
Sorry, my hair looks crazy on the pics, I am a little lazy at the moment for hair styling :-))
Check out the look:

Products used:
- bare minerals powder foundation "medium"
- physicians formula talc free mineral powder "sand beige" for contouring (goodie from the USA)
- the balm "sexy mama" (to matify my nose and forehead)
- Mac mineralize blush "chic couple" (LE)
- Estee Lauder double wear concealer

- MUFE Aqua Cream 14 as a base
- Mac "sweet and punchy" e/s
- Mac "spectacle of yourself" e/s (Peacocky LE)
- Mac "vanilla" e/s
- Mac "undercurrent" pearlglide liner (lower lash line)
- Artdeco liquid star liner 18
- The balm "mischievous marissa" e/s
- P2 tinted brow gel
- P2 lashbomb mascara

- Chanel "natural" lipliner
- Mac kissable lipcolour "so vain" (LE)

 What do you think about sweet and punchy e/s? How do you combine it?

...sending you some hugs and kisses,

EOTD go bronze with MAC Below Ground Greasepaint Stick

Hi everybody!
This look I made some days before. I realised that I didn't use my MAC greasepaintstick for a long time and wanted to create a bronzey look with it.
I am not a lover of the greasepaintsticks as I find them hard to blend and I don't like to abuse my eyes by rubbing around. Buuut, I love them as a base because they avoid creasing at my eyes and allow the eyeshadows put on them to pop more beautyful.
Below ground GPS came out with the Art Supplies LE by MAC in ca. April 2010.
Products used: MUFE Aqua eyes 10L, MAC GPS "below ground", Essence e/s 10 "party all night", MAC e/s "vanilla", MAC mineral trio "in the groove" (In the Groove LE 2010), P2 tinted Brow gel, P2 powder brow set, Maxfactor Experience Mascara

 Do you have some greasepaintsticks? Do you like working with them? Kisses, Erika

EOTD with MAC Club + Contrast

Today I was in a hurry in the morning but still wanted to try a combination of MAC Club and Contrast eyeshadows. I am not 100% satisfied with the result but I like the two colours together.

Club eyeshadow is a f***in bastard :-)! It always shows brown on me. I suppose I will give it a try with a green base next time. Heey, the green in there, I want to see you!!!

Contrast on lid and lower lash line blended upwards on upper lid with club, pics taken in direct sunlight:

Do you have Club eyeshadow? Do you like it and which combinations do you like with it?

Wishing you all a good day!

some balkan music I love

DJ Shantel "disko boy" :-) rrrrrooocks !

Hi everybody!
I am listening to this song all time at the moment, it's funny and makes me have good mood!

What kind of song do you like at the moment and can't stop listening?
