Dark Lipsticks

I haven't posted for over a week now, and I do feel really guilty, but I barely have a second to seat down and just talk to you guys. Not only I feel unproductive when I don't post but I really enjoy all the experience of blogging ans I love being part of this community. I'll do my best this next month to organize my schedule so I could post a lot more. Besides that, I did do a little bit of fall/winter lipstick shopping (because shopping is very productive). I just bought 3 lipsticks so it's a mini haul, but I still wanted to share it. 
I'm absolutely in love with those shades. I don't think you need a review since 2 out of 3 of these lipsticks are MAC lipsticks and the third one is a Revlon Just Bitten Kissable, which I really recommend. 
So here are my three picks : 
-MAC Diva 
-MAC Cyber
-Revlon Just Bitten Kissable in Crush

(I know my Revlon lipstick broke, it melted in my bag, not my fault it's still hot in my country)

Hopefully this holiday I'll do some more shopping and this time I'll have time sharing it with those that are interested. Thank you for reading! 
Leave me in the comments down below your favorite Fall/Winter lipstick! Are you more a neutral or bold kind of girl?

Fake Face Of The Night

Not going to lie to you, I did not actually go out with that look. I wish I would've because I'm for once pretty happy with how it turned out, but instead of going out having fun with my friends, I'm here sitting in my couch, writing a post, who people I don't even know (but still love) are going to read. No but seriously I was supposed to go out so I got all fancy, usually I'm to lazy to come out of bed but tonight I wanted to make an effort. Turned out I took to much time to get ready and it was to late to go out. 
Well I mean I take that as a sign, a sign that a should stay in bed all my life, reading blogs, tweeting, going on Facebook, procrastinating and watching Youtube videos and series. I'm okay with spending all my weekends like that but I don't think that's how my social life is going to involve. 
Well, as long as I have my computer with me I don't think I even need friends. Okay now I'm going to stop trying to influence you to be as unsociable and lazy as me and I'm going to show you what look I created to go ... to sleep.

Cara Delevigne Brows Tutorial

The bold brow trend has started, if I'm not wrong around a year ago... At first I wasn't the biggest fan but my sister got me into it.To be honest the reason I was not so sure about the big bold brows look is because I myself, always had quite a lot of eyebrow action. It does sound weird but little secret for you, when I was a kid I had a bit of unibrow! How attractive right? I bet the boys were all over me and my unibrow, haha. 
So today I thought I'll show you how I recreate the big bold Cara Delevingne eyebrow because this trend is not going anywhere for now and it's still all over the runways for fall/winter. If you don't know how to wear it, and you're quite scared I would suggest going very light on the eyes (either a matte neutral shade on the lids or even with just mascara), and a very dark lip. That's the way I would wear it. You do not want to go with everything dramatic so avoid shimmer on the eyes and don't overdo with the blush, it can look too much.

So here is the tutorial : 

  • First, my tip would be to brush your eyebrows upwards, like not how you would brush them usually, you want to brush them dramatically upwards to the point where it looks odd.

  • Then take a brow pencil but one shade lighter than your color, because for now you just want to fill them lightly, in little strokes movement as if you were were drawing little hair. (I used Shu Uemura Brow Pencil here)

  • Then brush them again, I would suggest brushing them between every step to soften the color, it looks a bit more natural. I personally couldn't find my spooly, so I used a new and unused tooth brush instead, please don't judge me and take it as a tip instead, it works perfectly.
  • Now you're going to want to set it with a powder, it will last longer, and that's what is going to give us the dark eyebrows. I used here Charcowl Brown from Mac, which I'm sure you've heard about it before, it's every beauty guru holy grail brow product. So take an angled brush and now you can go pretty dramtically with the powder but always making that same little strokes movement. 

  • For the final touch, I would suggest to add concealer around the edges to make it look perfect but if you want it a little messy which I like as well then skip that step. You choose. Don't forget to brush them upwards a the end!

 Final Look :



Products Used :
- Mac Eyeshadow in Charcoal Brown
- Brow Pencil from Shu Uemura

Okay now you're done, you're halfway thru looking like Cara Delevigne! No just kidding you all look gorgeous! Thank you for reading and let me know in the comment section if you recreate this! Big Kisses Princesses

A little delivery from Paris

Is there a better way to wake up, than with your mother bringing you goodies from Paris? I don't think so.
So my mom went to Paris last week, and I guess she missed my sister and I so much that she thought it will be a good idea to buy us something from there. Well great idea mother.
Since she is my mom, she obviously knows my big love for luxury and for macaroons, and if the two of them had a baby together it would be "La Duree", the best macaroons of Paris. I was so happy to see this amazing box sitting on my table and believe me so was my stomach.

The next goodie is beauty related, well I guess my mom really knows me. It's the Clarins Lip Perfector, in two different shades. I can't wait to try these out! Oh wait, I might have tried it before... Maybe I was always stealing my mom's, and that's the reason why she bought me one, she was tired of me sneaking into her bathroom.. Uhm maybe. Anyways if you guys want me to write a review on that, let me know in the comments down below, they definitely deserve a review!

My beautiful Victoria's Secret packaging is field with intimates, so I think I don't need to go too much in details with that... and you know a little Glamour French Edition Magazine never hurts.
