Moody Wintery Shadow!!

Burgundy madness, wine shadow won’t look out of place with a moody wintery outfit.

Now, it’s your turn to wear the trend, so why Burgundy? it has a purplish undertone that can make the whites of your eyes appear whiter, other than that it flattering on every skin tone, you don’t have to avoid the color based on your skin tone like most colors. You like it, you apply it.  All you have to do is:

1- Apply the right shade: Here is a list of pallets that have different shades of burgundy for you to try out. MAC Burgundy Times Nine Palette, KYShadow Burgundy Palette, Becca Comsetics Ombre Rouge Eye Palette, Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette. gigi hadid

2- Don’t over do it: if you are worried about how the color might come off, you can start with a little burgundy shade in the outer corner of your eye and blend it with your eyeliner.

3- Dare to smoke it: the burgundy eyeshadow can act like a Smokey eye effect only with a different shade, you can smoke it out and control the intensity of the shadow depending on the look you are going for.

4- Mascara or Lashes: the don’t of the burgundy eyeshadow look, never leave without applying false lashes or lots and lots of mascara to frame your eyes.

5- Keep it Simple: Try to keep everything else simple, avoid applying any reddish tones, such as blush. Switch up the blush with some highlighter and tone it down with the contouring.

Farsali Volcanic Elixir – My Thoughts

I tried the first product of Farsali almost a year ago or so, few months after its release. I thought it was another beauty brand that just mixed a bunch of oils in a bottle and claimed it’s great for the skin. I was wrong, I loved it.

This time, I decided to try the Volcanic Elixir – and WOW.66950A7A-79EF-4C94-B8DD-7B73408BEF87

What this Oil is made of:

The oil is extracted from the nut kernels of the Tamanu fruit, which flourishes in the south pacific islands of Polynesia, due to the volcanic atmosphere. Volcanoes have a very good effect to the surrounding soil. The Volcanic ash contains minerals that are beneficial to plants and provide nutrients to the soil.

 

Benefits:

The properties in oil can help regenerate skin tissue. It also has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibiotic, and antioxidant properties, making it ideal for acne sufferers.
The Volcanic Elixir aids in regenerating new healthy skin. It can be used on acne and acne scars, dry and scaly skin, stretch marks, etc. The oil does have a strong scent (disappears few minutes after application).

 

Why I love It:

The Volcanic Elixir is a thick and heavy oil with a strong nutty aroma and yellow color. It is best to use this at night because of the strong scent and thickness of the oil. I either apply it before bed, or throughout the evening when I have a solid 2 hours at home. The thickness of the oil takes time to get absorbed and that is why you need to dedicate time for it.

I absolutely love the effect it had on my skin, it left my skin so soft and hydrated, sometimes I experience redness in my pores in my T-Zone area, but this oil manages to close the pores and reduce the oils that are extracted. I also have some scars and this oil also managed to reduce them, I’m in love with it.

Another plus is that I use a drop of oil on my lips, wait 30 minutes and then I apply a liquid lipstick, usually these lipsticks dry out your lips, so with this oil I don’t find any problems. If I feel my lips are still dry I re-apply the oil after I remove the lipstick.

KKW Powder Contour

kkw beauty kitAlthough KKW contour stick got really bad reviews. I honestly believe that the second product of Kim Kardashian is not so bad after all. The Powder Contour Kit in Medium is the one I own.

I loved it, I haven’t used the bronzer shade yet (I found it too dark and has an orange undertone which is not a favorite look of mine).

The compact is divided into four squares, each big enough to dip a bronzing/ contouring brush into aside from the brush that comes with it. The first color is a highlighter, creamy off white in color. Which I love the most, I apply it in the inner corner of my eyes, bridge of my nose and under my brows. It gives off the perfect shimmer illusion.

Second square is the concealer setter (that has a little bit of shimmer / if you like to set your concealers with that), a pale ivory shade that works.

The powder is super pigmented. Last but not least is a neutral taupe brown with no orangey tones blends extremely well, stays put and actually looks very natural even when heavily applied.

I apply this brown tone with no foundation sometimes if I’m in a hurry and need a little bit of contouring, it stays put and the color does not change tones when applied with foundation or without.

The KKW Powder Contour is great for beginners, and if you’re into a nice highlighter shine then this kit is for you. If she sells the highlighter on its own, I think it would be amazing !! I loved it more than other brands I tried, and would definitely continue using the highlighter, the contour part, well there are other brands too.
