HOW TO - refresh yourself on-the-go

Hello there lovely ladies and gents 

Today's article is an article about some tricks and tips that I use after a long day.
Most f the time I have a long school day and my face feels really dehydrated , 
my make up has disappeared and I feel tired.
These are my tricks and tips that I use on the way back home or in the bathroom at school , 
to fresh my self up and make me a little more awake.
I hope this really helps you !

What am I using ?
Lush : breath of fresh air toner
In my school we have small classes with only one window.
And when its hot the air conditioning goes on.
After sitting in one of the class rooms for an hour my skin feels so dehydrated.

So when I spray this on my face I already feel way more fresh and awake then before 
Before I do this step I pat a powder on my face , to remove any oils.

 What am I using ?
Bourjois healthy mix concealer 
number 51 called : Eclat clair

After letting the toner get in to my skin I applied some concealer for my eye bags.
This will make my eyes look a lot more awake.
Because after a whole day of school , like I already said :
it kinda looks like my make up has disappeared.
So after this step I would look more awake.

What am I using ? 
Catrice limited edition lipgloss
In number 01 called My home is my Sand Castle

After the concealer I move on to the next step and that is applying lipgloss.
This will make you face look more fresh and healthy.
You can also choose to use a lipstick , but since im traveling by train ,
it's kinda hard to apply this while riding.
This is an easy way to look fresh in 5 seconds. 

What am I using ? 
Sleek limited edition blush - avoir la peche collection
In number 919 called Pan-Tao

This is a very vibrant color and will lighten up your face.
After a long day of work or school my face always looks a little pale and washed- out.
This is a great way to add color into your face and will make you look colorful instantly.

What am I using ? 
Sephora fond de tein matifant foundation
In number 20 called Clair light.

I always keep this powder in my bag because my skin tends to get oily after a long day.
And I dont like to look like a grease ball.
So a compact powder is a MUSTHAVE for a long day , I think.

I'm applying this all over the face and by doing this im mattifying my face.
So I will look less oily.    
And it will make my skin more even.

And at last I spray on some deodorant and perfume. 
Outside of the train or in the toilet , so it wouldn't bother someone.
Because when you spray in inside of the train or in the classroom , maybe someone else is bothered by it.

Other things that will fresh me up 
  • Bottle of water
  • Refreshing towels
  • A light face cream or serum 
  • New foundation applied
  • Some fruit , to hydrate myself
  • Some fresh air always helps
Well I think these we're my tips and tricks.
I really hope it helped you or that you can do something with these tips.
Deffinitly try them out on a long day , it will make you look more awake and bright.

FOTD - peacock eyelook

Hello lovely ladies and gents  
Today's article is another face of the day.
Well more an eye of the day.
I was so inspired by a picture I found that I decided to do it myself.
It's a peacock inspired eye look and I think this eye look is so freaking gorgeous.

I made this look with my three sleek palettes.
Curacao palette : number 580
Chaos palette : number 577
Monaco : number 657

I also used my Rimmel Volume Accelerator mascara.
I really love this mascara by the way , it really makes your lashes really long.
With a lot of volume that is added to your lashes.

My other face make up : 
Bourjois foundation - healthy mix serum 
Number 54 named Vanilla

Bourjois concealer - healthy mix 
Number 51 named Éclat Clair

Rimmel london face powder - Stay matte pressed powder
Number 003 named Peach Glow

After I made these pictures I changed the look a little.
I added more purple in the outer V.
So these are the pictures with a slightly more purple touch.

I made this look with my sleek palettes.
I also used two purples from my 88 color palette.
I like the look way more than before with the purple added to the look.
It's more ... peacock -ish.

I used a white base by using my NYX jumbo pencil in Milk.
I did this because this would really make the eye shadow look more vibrant.
After that I applied all the colors one by one.
I started in the inner corner of my eye and applied the bright green.

Then I applied the next two colors.
A emerald/sea green color and beside that I applied a bright turquoise blue eyes shadow by Sephora.
I also used another Sephora eye shadow and that was a bright cobalt blue eye shadow.
Then I started blending the colors and after that I applied purple in the socket of my eye.
And started blending the color in to my outer V.

After that I applied my eye pencil from Gosh , which is a vibrant blue color.
And applied that on to my lash line.
And as the final step I curled my lashes and applied mascara.

Final Look

After a while I decided to apply a winged eye with the eye look.
Just to try out if it would look good.
I really like this eye look !
It's a heavy eye look but I really like it , very experimental.

Again .. I really love this eye look and I think it looks absolutely amazing.
I just fell in love with this eye look when I saw it for the first time.
And I just needed to try it , I just picked up my brush and started on the look.
And i'm so happy with the end result and I feel satisfied now.

Just give this look a try !
A few months ago I was always scared to use vibrant colors.
Just because I was afraid that the look would fail.

But now my vision has changed , 
you can always remove it with eye remover if you don't like the end result.
Its not permanent , so just experiment and try different things.
Don't be afraid to use odd colors or colors that u normally wouldn't use.

Well this was it and I really hope you liked it.
And most of all I hope I inspired you with this look and article.
And again just give it a try , dont be afraid to do something else that you're not used to.
