When I studied fashion in high school, there were these girls studying to become an beautician. So one time when our teachers was sick they asked us to be test clients in one of their classes. That hour I ended up with two young girls, one on each hand working my nails. It was my first and only manicures I have ever had! (really). It wasn't the best job in world, but those girls where so cute!
Many of my beauty skills I learned from these girls during our math classes together. Yes, during math classes I learned how to put on eye shadow. Even though at that age I could pull “beautiful” off without any make-up. Now it’s a different story! So I got much more interested in all the facets of beauty. Most of my beauty lessons I get from YouTube (witch ’s is the new bible that gives the answers to all question of life, I think)
I was checking out a lot of clips on how to put on make-up, even the one “how to look like Kim K.” (No ambitions to look like her at all, but that woman looks flawless all the time) And what me strikes on those tutorials, especially the one about Kim K., is how many shades and color you need to put on your face. You need a primer, a foundation, shaping powder, blush, liquid this liquid that… I came to the conclusion that I don’t have paparazzi or cameras following me everywhere. I’m just an ordinary working class girl. I probably don’t need to put that much make-up on my face even to look nice! In this case I go for “a lot less is much more!".
So I've started with an healthy diet and good skin care. The better you take care of your health you will not only see it in your waist line but also in the condition of your skin! And make-up should just be an enhancement of your best features. So my goal is to get the best results with as few products as possible.
mother Santa Clause gave me this Doir eye shadow
thing, which she thought to be a primer.
Quote “Really it’s a primer that’s what the sales lady said”. Looking at it. It was defiantly not a primer. But why would a sales lady sell eye shadow as
a primer? Mystery?! I started reading the “instructions”. And found out it was a super pigmented eye
shadow where if you tap in on your eye lid with your finger you put on a light
but intense color. If you want it more dark you can wet your pencil for a more smoky effect.
So check out this eye make-up tutorial with just three products!!
black eye liner (rituals)
First put on your base make-up! In my case I only use cover stick and sometimes BB cream.
Put eye-liner on you upper lash-line but inside your eye.
Tap the Doirshow fusion mono on your eyelid with your fingers.
Put eye-liner on you upper eye above your eye lashes.
Wet you pencil, take some Doirshow fusion mono on your brush and tap lightly on your eyeliner line!
For a more smoky effect you can make a darker v in you crease and put a bit of lighter eye shadow in your inner eye corner! But with this product you can have a subtle and beautiful effect with less effort! I’m saving up to buy some of their natural colors for everyday use!
