My Top 5 Lipsticks for Autumn/Winter

dscn1467

So recently I have been particularly obsessed with lipsticks. In my case this means going to Superdrug every Friday and spending more money on makeup than on my groceries. I have a problem. But it also means that I found some really amazing lipsticks in colours that are perfect for autumn and that I will definitely continue wearing during winter time as well. I thought I would show you my top 5 lipsticks to give you some makeup inspiration. And if you are looking for new lipsticks then you will already know that these ones are really good!

So here are some swatches of all five lipsticks to give you an overview, and then I will write down the names and exact colours separately. (The order is the same as in the first picture!)

  1. Rimmel: The Only One Matte Lipstick – 200 Salute 

    This is probably the lipstick that I have been using the most. It is the perfect blush-nude matte colour, and the most longlasting lipstick I’ve used so far. It will stay on your lips for hours and hours, you might only need to reapply a little bit after you’ve eaten, but that is true for all lipsticks. So it is perfect for long days at work or uni. Also, this one smells incredible! To me, all lipsticks smell nice, but this one is especially lovely!

 

2. Maybelline: Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick – 50 Nude Thrill

This one is a really nice, bit more orange/brown-ish nude. It feels amazing on the lips, very soft and moisturizing. The only bad thing about this is that after you put it on you need to remove the excess to make it matte. But it is very longlasting and I absolutely love it!

 

3. Rimmel: The Only One Lipstick – 700 Naughty Nude

This one is a bit darker nude, and also a more pink-blush kind of colour. I know, four out of five of my favourite lipsticks are from Rimmel, but it is literally the only brand that I completely trust when it comes to lipsticks. I just love all of their colours and the quality is very good. And this new line called The Only One contains the most gorgeous lipsticks!

 

4. Rimmel: The Only One Lipstick – 800 Under My Spell

I have been looking for a berry-coloured lipstick, and when I came across this one I couldn’t resist it! I think the colour is absolutely gorgeous, and the lipstick feels very light-weight, not thick or sticky at all. You can’t even feel it on your lips, which is a good thing for me when it comes to darker colours. Perfect for autumn and also winter, I will definitely be wearing this colour, if not every day then every weekend at least!

 

5. Rimmel: Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick – 30

I’ve had this lipstick since last autumn, and I have been loving it since then! I do not wear this everyday as it is quite dramatic, but I think it’s perfect around the christmas time when you don’t really want to go for the bright red but rather dark burgundy kind of colour. I also bought a lipliner to go with this, and I would recommend you to do the same if you are not 100% comfortable with putting on dark lipsticks. Remember: practice makes perfect! 😉

 

I hope you all enjoyed this blog post! Let me know what lipsticks are your favourites for autumn/winter time, I’d love to know! Also let me know if you would like to see more posts like this in the future because I love doing them!

Tomorrow is the 1st of December! Who’s excited for opening advent calendars and watching Vlogmas videos every day? I definitely am 🙂 Hope you all have a lovely couple of weeks leading up to Christmas!

Morning Routine – At University

In this video I’m showing you what my morning routine looks like when I’m at university. I think it’s really important to have a nice morning routine that you enjoy doing, because it can put you in a good mood for the entire day, so I thought I would show you mine today. Let me know what yours looks like in the comments!

I always put on the radio while I’m getting ready, because some good songs and jokes always wake me up and make me happy. I always find myself laughing during the radio 1 breakfast show 🙂 My favourite part of getting ready is probably doing my makeup, because I love how confident it makes me feel. You can’t even imagine how much I care about matching my makeup and hair with my outfit, I am so busy thinking about this every morning that I basically forget to worry about university.

So after I do my morning routine I am ready to face the challenges of the day, or most of the time just ready to sit in the library then go to work… and live the fabulous life of a student you know.

Everyday Makeup Tutorial for Autumn

In this week’s video I’m showing you how I do my makeup everyday during autumn. This is one of my favourite makeup looks as it is very easy to do, it is long lasting and I looove the colours.

Here’s a list of the products I used:

img_7281

  • Rimmel Fix & Protect Makeup Primer

As I said in the video this is such a good primer, it really makes a difference in how long your makeup lasts. Amazing!

  • Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation in light porcelain
  • Catrice Liquid Camouflage Concealer in porcelain
  • Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in transparent
  • Powder Brush from Alicia de Silva (Müller)

I wanted to feature my new powder brush in this video / blog post, because it was a bargain! I really needed a big brush, and when I saw this for about  £6 / 6,5€ I had to buy it. I wasn’t disappointed at all, I think it is perfect. You can find it in Müller stores in Europe.

Wow. So many recent puchases in this picture! (Also, I am so happy with how this photo turned out, isn’t it aesthetically pleasing?!)

  • Catrice Eyebrow Set

As I have recently started getting more into makeup, I have to admit that this is my first eyebrow product in a powder form. I know… it was just about time for me to get something like this, and I chose this one because the colours looked nice, it had a brush as well, and it was not expensive. And I absolutely love it! It’s nice to have the choice of two colours, because sometimes I feel like doing my eyebrows quickly with the lighter one, and sometimes I feel like creating really dark and bold eyebrows, and this is good for both.

  • Catrice Eyebrow Filler Gel
  • Catrice Prime and Fine Eyeshadow Base

Believe it or not, this is also my first eyeshadow primer. I used to think that it was enough to put some foundation or CC cream on my eyelids as a base, but I was completely wrong! Since I started using this, my eyeshadow literally doesn’t go anywhere during the day and the application is also easier.

  • Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette

This palette was also a bargain, from a Rossmann store. It was on sale, and I needed a new eyeshadow palette with natural colours. These eyeshadows are very nice and pigmented, I was really satisfied!

  • Rimmel Eyeshadow Palette

I’ve had this palette for quite a while now, it just has some really nice colours that I like to use not only for autumn, but all year round as well.

  • Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara in intense black (forgot to put this in the photo – sorry!)
  • Rimmel Kate Face Palette
  • Avon Perfectly Matte Lipstick in au natural

This lipstick is really good quality and it was soooo cheap! It feels soft and moisturising on the lips, it doesn’t make them dry. Very long lasting as well, it doesn’t come off at all when you eat or drink. Perfect for every day!

Hope you enjoy the video, please let me know in the comments what kind of makeup you like to do for autumn or what colours you prefer! And don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel to see more videos from me.

My First Youtube Video! Bronze Summer Makeup Tutorial

Hello everybody, and welcome back to my blog!

After my first year of university, I realised that the thing I regret the most is not continuing my blog. So here I am, back again, more inspired and enthusiastic than ever. I have been through a lot this year, I learned so much, I travelled and explored new places. But something was missing.

I have done this before. I’ve had a twitter account since I was 12 years old and documented everything I did or felt (offensive things only in my diary, haha). Since I was 14 I have been inseparable from my camera. When I was 15 years old, I started making videos, which I absolutely loved, but I wasn’t confident enough to upload them to Youtube. I also didn’t really speak English back then, but I already knew that anything I do, I want to do in English.

So after my life has turned around within one year, I realised that the only thing I miss from my old life is documentation and sharing my experience with other people. Connecting with them by social media. I know that this is a very controversial topic, but I like to always concentrate on the positive side of things. I think it is amazing to be a part of an online community, to be able to share your thoughts with others and connect with people who are interested in the same things.

And now the time has come.

Getting inspired by my 16-year-old self, I made my first proper make up tutorial video. It was very daunting at first to make it public, but with the support of my family and my amazing best friends nothing seems impossible. I decided that I would also write a blog post about every video that I make, just so I can give you a bit more details and another platform to discuss them. So, let’s talk about the makeup tutorial!

First, here’s the list of products that I used:

IMG_6868

– Make up brush set: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00NOEWCZA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

IMG_6869

– Essence powder brush

– Maybelline Affinimat foundation (light porcelain)

– Catrice Liquid Camouflage concealer (porcelain)

– Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer (ivory)

– Rimmel Stay Matt powder (transparent)

IMG_6870IMG_6871

– Catrice Eyebrow Stylist pencil (Date with Ash-ton)

– Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hrs gel eyeshadow (35 On and On Bronze)

– Catrice Absolute Nude eyeshadow palette

– Maybelline Push Up Drama mascara

collage

– Catrice Ultimate Colour lipstick (204 Hey Nude)

– Rimmel face palette

The makeup brushes I ordered from amazon, because I do not have the budget for expensive ones. But they are surprisingly good, I’ve been really enjoying using them, so I thought it might be useful to share the link if any of you also don’t want to spend a fortune on makeup brushes.

All the other makeup products are from drugstores, so if you like any of them, you should be able to get most of them easily. However, I haven’t seen any Essence or Catrice Cosmetics products in the UK, so I’m not sure if you can get those. But if you live in another part of Europe, you can find them in drugstores, like Rossmann or Muller.

If you decide to recreate this makeup look, please don’t hesitate to send me a picture on Twitter or Instagram, because I would love to see it. Please also give my video a thumbs up if you enjoyed it and subscribe to my Youtube channel if you want to see more.
