A neutral rut

Wow, another 6 months have passed since my last post. I do update my instagram a bit more, but I know it's not the same at all.
Makeup used to be such a big part of my life, and while I still love it and play around with it as soon as I get the chance, I've been busy with so many other things.
Most days I'll look like some version of the look posted here - quite neutral but with a little bit of color thrown in since I can't help myself.

I've had an incredibly stressful semester at uni with my bachelor's project while at the same time trying my best to lead a much healthier lifestyle with (lots of) exercise and home made food. I've made some much needed changes which unfortunately meant that my blogging and general playing with makeup suffered a bit, but after my exam tomorrow (yes, I'm using the blog as procrastination!) I hope to return to the makeup table :D

Glittery birthday look!

I guess you could say that glitter is to makeup what 42 is to the question about life, the universe and everything. The answer. The ultimate answer.

Today's problem: Having to spend most of my 23rd birthday reading linear algebra.
Solution: Wearing glitter!

And you know what? I had a great day!

It probably had a lot to due with the fact that I had a ton of cake* in great company but I'd like to give credit to the glitter as well ;)

Have you ever tried doing your makeup, liking or loving the result, only to find a number of things you wanted to change with the look when you take pictures of it?
This was one of those times for me...

While I love the green color (thanks, Kryolan UV green and Sugarpill Absinthe!) the liner is wonky (thanks, MAC Shade fluidline for drying out on me) and I completely forgot to put on lashes! Man, I wanted to wear lashes with this! Oh well ;)

Futuristic Glamrock

As far as eyeshadows go, Fyrinnae is probably the brand with the most interesting colors! I definitely rediscovered my love for Futuristic Glamrock and Parental Advisory with this look.

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of pink. Especially when it's neon and on my lips.
Thanks, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, for making this awesome color!

Red. Purple. Gold.

Purple and red is a long time favorite of mine as far as color combinations go. Add a little gold and I'm in love!
This look turned out a bit darker than I intended thanks to the dramatic black liner.

And I have no idea what's up with all the nude lips lately. Challenge to myself: The next look I post needs to be featuring BRIGHT GLITTERY lips. Or something like that...

Grande Lumiere

I used to use my Ben Nye Grande Lumiere palette all the time. Probably because I got it when I was first getting into makeup and wanted everything BRIGHT and SHINY.
Looking at that palette really makes me think about how much my makeup style has changed. I'm still head over heels in love with bright colors and glitter but it seems to be in a very different way.
At least I like to think that there's more attention to the details in the looks that I do now compared to the "one bright color on the lid and another bright color in the crease and I'm done"-type of looks that I used to do.

And so I give you a quick look inspired by the 17-year-old me* with the help of my beloved Ben Nye palette!

Neo Orange, Poison Plum... Love.

Rather simple, but fun and bright at the same time. It seems that's a new makeup love of mine...

After doing my eye makeup today, I reached into my lipstick drawer and pulled out... MAC's Diva! I love wearing shades like that!

And it was all yellow

I didn't get any good full-face pictures but I really wanted to share the eye look anyway.
It's simple, yellow and I think it's a quite nice way to make super bright colors wearable :)

Glitter blues

Hello there! I'm so glad you're still following the blog even though it's been a (very long) while since the last update.
My skin problems haven't cleared up at all but at least I have some good days in between the bad ones, and so I've decided to get back into the colorful world of makeup on those good days! :)
