If you are familiar with my blog, you know I'm not the skin care expert and I don't use a lot of products on my skin and that's why I felt a little bad that I don't give it proper care.
Since I'm not the creature with a morning/night routine using specific products every single day, I'll tell you how I (at least think :D) take care of my skin without it being a whole process you need to get used to.
I personally don't feel like I need a lot of products to make my skin better. I'm one of the lucky ones who never had problems with acne or so, so even if I'm using something it's not like "oh wow this product is helping my skin a lot".
2 in 1 - Makeup Remover + Cleanser
I think finding a good makeup remover is crucial. When I started using a makeup remover that was also a cleanser I noticed that my skin was never irritated, never felt weird, removing my makeup was very very refreshing. And since you are already removing your makeup, isn't it better to cleanse it at the same time? Of course it is :D Not only that you're not wasting more time, I'd say it's also cheaper like this. Also, while I was using Dermacol's Perfect Cleanser (or Elixir Lotion, on the pic), I used it also on days when I didn't need to remove any makeup. It just feels soooo damn amazing and refreshing. That's the key to skin care in my opinion - you need to sort of fall in love with the product, that's what will keep you using it.
I started using wipes a couple of weeks ago everytime after I remover my makeup because I felt like my skin didn't get proper care. It's not like it looked bad, I feel like it was "peer pressure" that got me hooked on this :D You see it everywhere, everyone is using so many skin care products... So I thought I'd try cleansing wipes. And I have to say I kinda like it. Again, it's refreshing, and I found cheap wipes with salicylic acid which is good for exfoliation.
Alright, these are two small tips that I can give you so far. I know you probably knew about these, but I know I'm not the only one out there, who doesn't have a skin care routine or so.
If you have any other tips, let me know in the comments! =) Or you can just write what skin care products you use =)
Thank you for reading! =)

I decided to post this tutorial at last. I filmed this what seems like a long time ago. It was more than a month ago. But with my technical difficulties I've had, I had to postpone uploading this one. The next tutorial that I'm going to upload is going to be more dramatic, so I decided, that after the last one, it's time for something a little more subtle.
I bought my Naked and Naked 2 palettes in London. Actually, there's a funny story behind purchasing the Naked 2. I had a hard time deciding if I wanted to buy the original one or 2, but I decided to go for the original one, because it had the sample of Primer Potion so even before going to London I decided to get the original one. It was probably after 10 minutes me and my friend were inside of our plane when my friend browsed through the magazine with the stuff they sell on the plane and she's like "isn't this the palette you wanted to buy??" It was the Naked 2 palette. And, of course, it was cheaper. I had a huge dilemma.. Because I really wanted the Primer Potion. But buying a cheaper Naked 2? A girl obsessed with makeup like me cannot say no to that :D And then when I went to Debenhams, I decided to buy the original one too (moreover, they had 10% off all UD products! :D Lucky day!). And I'm really happy I did. I think the two palettes complement each other very well.
Okay let's move on to the tutorial. I wanted to do something quick and a little different than what I'm used to. But I have to say, even though I never really wear bronze eyeshadows and neutrals a lot, I'm satisfied with the result. I don't know if this is everyone's cup of tea, but I really like how the colorful eyebrows complement the natural colors on the eyes.
THE LIST OF PRODUCTS:
Naked, Naked 2 palettes - eyeshadows:
Snakebite, Naked, Tease, Virgin, Sidecar
Sephora mono eyeshadow in Porcelain

I'm here with something a little different. I was inspired by Placebo's awesome song called Pierrot the Clown (hence the title of the tutorial).
At first I thought I was going for something complettely different but that's what I love about doing makeup tutorials, I never really know where I'm going with it or even if I do, I spontaneously end up doing something else. But I have to say I quite like how it turned out =)
As you can see, the eyebrows really add to that whole sad look. That's the thing about eyebrows. They can change up your entire face and the way you look. And that's one of the reasons I love that I shave my eyebrows. I can do whatEVER I want =) Especially with these sort of costume looks, I always struggled when doing my makeup because my eyebrows were just in the way. Btw - I'm not saying that you should go ahead and shave your eyebrows just do to one halloween makeup look on yourself :D Nope. It's a big commitment, because then you have to draw them everyday you get out of the house, if you don't want to look like an eyebrow-less alien :D
THE LIST OF PRODUCTS:
face paint - white Supracolor by Kryolan
red and black from the 120 palette
white from Sleek's Matte v2 palette
Oriflame lipstick in Hollywood Red

Here is my new tutorial of a look that I recently did. I used the awesome Vice palette by Urban Decay. I got it recently on a trip in London and I wanted to create a look with ti ever since, but I sort of never got to it. But that has changed, here's one of the first looks that I did with this palette. =)
I decided to do something a little different (I didn't line my lower lashline with liquid eyeliner, so for me that huge :D) but I liked how it turned out. I love the colors, especially the blue, which turns out matte on your eyes, while it looks shimmery in the palette - which is just great.
