Video: First Impression - Essence Magenta and Me

Yeah so I made a video. In awful lighting. And with awful skin. That was made more awful by awful lighting. Vicious circle.
And I think the light made my teeth look super yellow. At least I hope they aren't that bad irl.):

Adore Nikkie

Since I am such a RuPauls Drag Race whore, and a NikkieTutorials fangirl, I had to try out Nikkies Adore Delano/Bratz Doll makeup tutorial. I did wish that I didnt completely close up the inner white part with black, since Adore does not do that.. Aaand my eyeliner was about to end. Heh. Any who. Im not completely in love with this look, but I thought I would share it anywayzzzz...

Gold Gate

Sparkles!!!! Yez!
Unfortunately my camera ran out of batteries before I could get enough descent pics.. Sigh.
Also, I had this super gross zit just under the eyebrow, and I could not edit it out properly.. So, now theres a weird blurry mess there instead. Heh.
And uh, the concealer under the brows looks super icky... Did not notice that when I took the pics. Sorreh.

Swatch: Essence Quattro Eyeshadow - Magenta and Me!

Woah, a swatch?! How active am I?! I should drink coffee more often. Im a better blogger when Im using caffine.

My parents went to Las Palmas for a week, and I sent my mother on a hunt for some Essence stuff. Since I didnt necessarily need anything, and I dont know that much about their products, I just told her to buy whatever.
One of the things she bought was this tiny palette, the Essence Quattro Eyeshadow - 14 Magenta and Me!

It's swatched over primer and bare skin. You can see where the primer ends with the pink and purple shadows, but the two lighter ones are superpigmented. And boy am I glad that silver turned out to be gray! Im not much of a fan of silver shadows..
I haven't used these shadows yet, but they did suprise me a bit. I think they are super pretty! Im thinking about doing kind of an "first impressions" (not really because of the swatch) kind of video when I use it in a makeup. What do you guys think?






*** When I "ordered" Essence, it was because I have read that it was a cruelty free-brand. After getting the products, I did a little digging. It seems like their parent company is a little iffy, so Im not sure that Essence deserves the CF-stamp. ***

Warning: Bloodzzzzz.

Hii!
Im super late to the game with my halloween-look, that wasn't really a halloween-lock. I actually wore something else to a halloween party. But on the 31st, we didn't do anything special so I decided to try something with liquid latex again. I tried it once, last halloween, and my skills hasn't really improved since then ;P
It isn't perfect. It doesn't look real. But I love it anyway. Also, when playing with the fake blood over the eyebrow, the liquid ran into the eye.. It stinged a little, and when I opened the eye, my lense had turned red. Booyah. Hahahah. I kept the lense in for a couple of days because I thought it looked kind of cool. It didn't irritate the eye, and the color was gone three days later. I do not recommend doing this though, heh.

Earth

Woot wooot, look nr 2!
I know I have done some looks just like this one in the past, but I used some new techniques and other bases for this one, etc etc. (I cant find the fucking looks, but since I have owned Mac e/s - Club and do own the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone-palette, I KNOW that I have paired it with Lily Lolos Pixie Dust too. Gosh darnit.)
Met up with Comaheart who wore the Makeup Geek Insomna-pigment that night, and I got inspired and wanted to use my Da Vinci Shimmer eyeshadow in Earth, weei!
Oh well. I used a red and blue base for the shadows to stick on. Just to help the duochrome pigment a bit.

Hysteric Cut Crease

Hi again!
Im not totally back. But I feel like a douche to the blog when Im uploading looks on instagram and temptalia, without posting them here... So.. I have like.. two looks for ya. Maybe three.
So a while ago I got super jelly because Tialacakeface makes the most awesomest cut creases, and I am super bad at it. Then I saw a pictorial that Lorie_babe made and thought that I might give it a try after all.
(I do collect a looot of screenies from Instagram for future inspiration, haha!)
I kind of used the same technique as her, but not with the concealer.

And I know my brows are totally weird in these pics. I hade lost my tweezer and one of the brows are super weirdly shaped. bah.

Blog on hiatus?

I kind of feel that I have come to a stop with makeup.. Don't get me wrong, I still love it, but I feel like I'm not progressing. I look back at makeups from 1-2 years ago and I see no difference with what I do now. And that kind of bums me out.
The issues I have with getting good pictures is bumming me out even more. Soo.. I don't know. I might be putting this blog on hold. Which kind of sucks.
Another reason is that this blog isn't progressing either. It feels like I've been doing this for ages, but nothing is happening. It's been on ~60 page views at most for about a year. Which leads me to believe that I'm not good enough for the internetz, which bums me out, and makes me uninspired. Sorry to say. (Also, I hate to adverise myself, which might be a part of the problem ^^)

I don't know. The last few weeks I haven't really been feeling it. And thus the blog suffers.

I'll try to save looks (and hopefully a list of products), and hopefully we will meet again in the future. In the meantime, you can follow my even more unactive instagram at Confusionmakeup.

Bye!


(Oh, personlig insta finns på Tveksamheten. Full av selfies och annat tönteri, weho!)

Herrrooh! Blog is still suffering from my lack of .. everything. heh.
Have done some looks, without taking pictures. Of course. And the ones I have taken pictures of, Im not super happy with. And the pictures are super crummy. Blurry and out of frame. About 80% of the time. Bitch-camera, I aint got time for this!

Ultra Urban

Woah! Im alive! Kind of!
Haven't really been home in like.. three weeks? Just a few days here and there. Still not home though. I have made a lot of makeup looks, but rarely got any time to take pictures of it. And these pictures I struggled with. Finding it so hard to get decent shots atm! It's too bright in the sun, to dark in the shadows. Derp. I also know its all goey and not pretty under the eye.. but.. blah.
