Eye of the Day: Lilac

Here is another very simple eye make-up for you. Everything you need is lilac and white eye shadow, a white kajal liner and some mascara.

With the lilac eye shadow I cover the moving part of the lid. With the white one, I blend it up to the brow bone.

Using a very fine wet eyeliner brush, I draw a lilac line at the upper lashes. With the same brush, I add a little color beneath the lower lash line. Then I apply white kajal liner on the lower water line.

Some grey mascara, that’s it!

Products I used:

  • Benecos Natural Kajal, white
  • Dr. Hauschka Eyeshadow solo, 07 smoky violet
  • Alverde Eyeshadow, cream

This look is not impressive, but it is a nice detail. I like to wear lilac and violet tops, and a hint of those colors on my eyes makes the look somewhat complete.

New Beauty September 2014

In September I got lots of new beauty things. Mostly travel sizes, but also some full size products.

Replacement:
Cattier Perle d’eau, micellar water. This is my second bottle and I absolutely love it. Nothing removes my eye make-up as gentle as this remover.

Full sizes:
Alterra Orange Soap and Sandalwood soap. Soap. I used these for my enzyme peeling soap bars.
Alterra Eyeliner Flashing Star & Liquid Eyeliner. I am not that good at using eyeliner, and mostly I go without. But I want to learn how to use liquid eyeliner, and here I have one with a brush and one with a felt tip.
Benecos Natural Mineral Powder in Golden Hazelnut (the darkest of the 4 colours). Hopefully this will mattify my skin. The colour is a little bit dark, so if it works for my, I think I will buy a lighter tone, too.
Khadi Reetha Powder (soapnut powder). I use this mostly for washing my hair, but it is not as finely ground as I wished it was. I had the washing powder once, now I give the pure soapnut powder a chance.

Travel sizes:
Farfalla Feel Beautiful Travelset. I am so curious about Farfalla. Most of their products are certified organic and vegan, so I will test them. I like the brand, they seem nice as they cover most my requirements that I have on beauty products.
Intelligent Nutrients Volumizing Spray. If I use hairspray twice a month, that is often for me. My conventional hairspray is nearly empty and I wanted to replace it with a greener version.
Khadi Face- and body Oil White Lily Travel Size. This is going to be an experiment for a face oil blend.
Less is More Lindengloss Finishing Spray. This should work together with the hair spray.
Sensena Shower Peeling and Seasalt-Oil-Bath Walnut & Fig. The last salt scrub I bought is long gone, I usually do other peelings.

Trial Sizes and other Stuff:
Ebelin Dupe to Invisibobble Traceless Hair Ring: nice hair ribbon that stays in place. It is gentle to my hair and gives hold to my ponytail or bun.
i+m Phyto Balance 24h Moisturizer Trial Size: My skin is super dry on some days, and I want to find a moisturizer that really helps on dry patches and makes my skin smooth and hydrated.
Interdental Brushes to comb through my lashes after I applied mascara.
Sanoll Hair End Moisturizing Cream Trial Size, with goats milk. My hair ends are very dry, I have to moisture them otherwise they will split or break.
Ebelin Shampoo and Massage Brush, never tried a shampoo brush before, it should help to massage oily hair treatments into the roots.

What did you get new in September?

Empties July & August 2014

August is over and so seems the summer. In the last two months I have used up some products, and today I will show you some of them.

Empties July & August 2014

Farfalla: Aloe Vera Gel Classic
One of my favourite summer products for beach days is now empty. I loved to use it on my face, arms and shoulders for some extra moisture. Swimming in the sea and numerous showers dry the skin, the gel helped to minimize that effect. In the evenings I spread some aloe gel over my back and sprayed hydrolate over it. That cooled my body somewhat and made it easier falling asleep in the hot climate.
Repurchase? Yes, next year right before summer.
