KISS in Clubwash!

Hey everyone!

On Friday 23rd, I had the chance to do makeup on three waitresses in a club in Brno (CZ), Clubwash. They organize interesting events every Friday with a theme. Last Friday the theme was rock music and my job was to transform the waitresses into band KISS. This sort of makeup is always fun so I was really looking forward to it. Girls seemed to be satisfied with the result, I was too, even though I wish the "designs" were more symmetrical :D But I think I still need to work on that =)

In case you don't know who KISS is =)

I have to say I liked the Spaceman makeup the most. Mostly because it was not only filling everything in with black (which was fun too! =) ) but I could actually do kind of a smokey eye - from black to blue, up to the eyebrow. Plus I think the colors, silver, blue, black, look awesome together.

I really enjoyed doing this =) And I can't wait to film the rest of the KISS looks. I already posted the Starchild, watch here.

Here some more photos of the girls in the makeup =)

I hope I'll get a chance to do something like this again =)

Wands And Lashes

Hey everyone! =)

Mascara is probably one of the first products we try as girls when we start wearing makeup. And no wonder. It makes your eyes more visible by darkening the lashes and once we learned how to work with it, it made our eyes more open and beautiful.

Mascara does a lot and it can be very hard to find one that fits you. It isn't like an eyeshadow, it looks the same on everyone (when applied the same way). One doesn't fit everyone. It all depends on your natural lashes. Whether they are thick or thin, easy to work with or stubborn, naturally long and curled or straight and short. I think everyone can have glamorous lashes. You just probably need to devote more time when it comes to searching for the one that's going to make that happen for you.

As I mentioned in my previous articles, I'm a student and if you look at the articles with the list of products I used in a tutorial, majority of them comes from a drugstore. I have to say, regarding mascaras, I don't really feel like investing a lot of money into a mascara that I have no idea if is going to work for me. It may have tons of awesome reviews but it's impossible for everyone to like one product. I heard only positive stuff on the Maybelline Falsies Mascara, and a few days ago I saw a video on youtube where someone said they didn't like it. Falsies cost 10 dollars where I live and for me personally 10 dollars is a lot if I'm not going to end up liking it. The thing is, my lashes usually work the best with a rubber-like applicator with stiff bristles that separates the lashes beautifully (like the Oriflame one on the pic below). And the Falsies don't have that, that's why I'm a little afraid it won't work for me (or maybe I'd be very surprised).

My all time favorite mascara is one by Oriflame, called WonderLash (pic on the left). The only problem I have with it is a huge one - getting it. It's full price is around 8 euros but they always have it in some catalogs on sale for 3-4 euros which is an amazing price for a mascara that works for you. But I hate that I can't come somewhere and buy just the mascara and leave. If you don't order stuff from Oriflame catalog in a certain amount of money (points rather - every product is worth some amount of points according to its price) you have to pay service charge. And what's the point if I end up paying maybe almost twice the price of it.. This is one of the reasons I stopped ordering stuff from there.

So I'm still on a look for a substitute. A drugstore substitute. Something affordable.

I decided to do small reviews on drugstore mascaras and I think I'll make a video about it, once I try more of them (maybe I'll even try the Falsies because I really am tempted! :D).

I have one unedited tutorial, I filmed it in quite a hurry though, so I have no idea if it's going to be worth editing and uploading. Stay tuned! =)

KISS Makeup - Paul Stanley [TUTORIAL]

Hey everyone! =)

Today I filmed this look, Paul Stanley's makeup from the band KISS. I'll be doing the rest of the looks soon so stay tuned for that! =)


Sephora smoothing primer
Kryolan Supracolor in White
 Maybelline Color Tattoo in Timeless Black
Stargazer eyeshadow in Black
Oriflame Hollywood lipstick

When I was taking this off, my makeup remover didn't really work (I'm out of my fav one which works so much better) so a trick I can tell you is to use extra virgin olive oil to take it off. It's going to get rid of everything on your face very easily and it's also good for your skin too.

Another thing I'd like to tell you is that you should take time with every step. It is going to take maybe around an hour to do because you're covering a big part of your face with black and don't be lazy and leave the cream without the powder eyeshadow over it. It's going to be worth it if you take your time with it =)

Hope you enjoyed this, stay tuned! =)

Mini Sephora Haul

Hey everyone,
my parents were visiting today and we went shopping. I had a Sephora coupon so me and my mum decided to spend it.
My mum got a day cream, Sephora Age defy moisture cream SPF 15, we also got two samples of .. haha I'm looking at the sample right now and we got the sample of the day cream :D And I think I remember the lady telling us that it's the sample of the night cream :D Oh well. But there's also a sample of the Super loaded age defy, which is a serum from the same line.

The we also got samples of Sephora's Brigtening and hydrating foundation in light 20 and medium 30. It's the smallest sample I've EVER seen :D it's not even the classic form, like you know the 2ml or so samples in a small bag, you just peel off something and it looks like there's a tiny bit of the foundation. I have the "classic" sample of this foundation somewhere in my train case and I'm kinda curious how this foundation works. But I'm not too into foundations, I barely use any, if I do, the coverage on the one I have is minimal and even with that I feel like I'm wearing too much stuff on my face, so... we'll see.
We also got discount on getting your eyebrows done and a Benefit catalog. I have to say I'm very tempted by Benefit products it's just.. I'm a student and currently looking for a job so it would be crazy for me to spend hundreds of crowns only for a blush or a mascara. But one day.... One day!! :D
Oh and we also got a sample of an Eisenberg perfume. Smells nice =)

So, I got a few things, + a present for a friend which I'm not going to show here because I think she sometimes reads my blog :D Shh! =)

The round thingy is a Precision sponge. I've heard awesome stuff about the Beauty Blender and this is like a smaller version of it (and a cheaper one) so I thought I'd try it.
Next I got a sharpener because I've had troubles sharpening my Sephora lip and eye pencils because they seem to be a liiiittle thicker than regular pencils and this sharpener looks a bit bigger so finally, I can use my Sephora pencils :D
The eyeshadow I got is called Tango Night number 35. I just love the color and it looks beautiful with the glitter in it. I have tons of purple eyeshadows but I think this is a very unique product thanks to the glitter. Can't wait to use it.

Okay that's it for this article, I'll be writing a small review on the sponge once I use it couple of times to tell you how it works and so on =)
Stay tuned, I have a lot of interesting stuff prepared, a new tutorial will be up probably tomorrow =)
So don't forget to subscribe to my youtube channel, and you can also find me on facebook and twitter =)
Have a great evening =)

Halloween Flashback: Monster Maker

Hey everyone! =)

I'm here with another Halloween-related article. I was supposed to attend a party that my school organized but a few days before Halloween, I got an offer to come to a different one, Erasmus Halloween party,  and do makeup on people there. At first I didn't know what party to choose but I'm glad I chose to go and do makeup on people.

It was an amazing experience. I did makeup on around 20 people in 3 hours. I didn't really prepare any looks because I obviously didn't know what people would want on their faces. It was all  very spontaneous and fun. I also have more ideas for Halloween tutorials thanks to that.

It's a pity I don't have more photos from the event, of me doing makeup on others or photos of people I did makeup on. People were just coming and coming, it all went by quite quickly.

I am very grateful for the experience and I'd like to thank the people who organized the party for inviting me.

So far I did only 2 Halloween tutorials and I'll definitely do more. It's a lot of fun working with crazier colors and looks =)

I also have other exciting news (not related to Halloween though :D), a lot of interesting things happened this weekend, so make sure to stay tuned to find out what it is.

Have a great day =)

Halloween Madness: Vampire [TUTORIAL]

Hello everyone!

I'm very excited to be here with another tutorial, another Halloween tutorial. I experienced some technical difficulties in the past few days so that's why I haven't been active.. My poor camera had some problems but it's all figured out now and I could finally get the materials for this tutorial into my computer, edit and post it =)

If you follow me on facebook or twitter, you may have read an update from me saying that I'll be filming myself as I get ready for a Halloween party on the 27th October. That did not happen :D I always find it very hard to film before a party because filming takes up a lot of time and other stuff.. So I told myself I'll recreate the look because I loved it and I even got compliments on the party.

Red, black from the 120 palette
Oriflame Hollywood lip liner
Alverde eyesadow duo in Mauve Harmony - the white
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Timeless Black
essence liquid ink eyelienr
Oriflame Hollywood lip stick
Sephora eyeshadow in City Fog

I really hope you enjoyed the look. Stay tuned for more, I have a lot of interesting stuff already in my computer ready to be edited. =)
