Do you remember my rainbow cut crease makeup from last year?

 Last year I hid the rainbow in my eyes – having deep set & hooded eyes can be beneficial for hiding secret messages on your lids. But this time I wanted it to show more, so I did another version of it. I even made a little tutorial, so rainbow cut crease 2.0, here it is.

What comes to the pride week and pride, I’ll just say one thing, that is a no-brainer for me: love is for everyone. It’s your personal business, but also it’s something that connects us and so it’s really everyone’s business. Right? There can never be too much love in this world.

And now: Check out this tutorial for creating a colorful rainbow cut-crease. It’s easy to create with a white pencil as a base and some colorful eyeshadows.

Again, I wanted to show you the steps eyes closed and open, because with my eye shape it’s how I work. I always check out the color placement eyes open, so I see how the makeup actually looks, when I’m talking to people.

  1. Prime your eyes the way you like. I used Urban Decay’s primer potion and I set it with light eye shadow.
  2. Create the rainbow shape on your eye, so that it shows when your eye is open, but still so that the brightest color is still a bit hidden.
  3. Blend the white pencil carefully.
  4. Start applying colors to the white base. I used three different shades of blue, green, yellow, orange, pink and a touch of red. Use any colors you like. Pack the colors on to make them as bright as possible.
  5. Blend the colors carefully so that they ‘blend in’ towards your brow.
  6. Cut the crease using a glitter liner. Apply the glitter liner also in your inner color to make it super bright. (There’s a treasure at the end of the rainbow right? Here it’s glitter.) I applied a loose glitter on top of the glitter liner to make it, you know, even more glittery.
  7. Tighline your upper lashline and create a wing. Make sure the wing meets the other end of your rainbow.
  8. Apply mascara and lashes. All done!

What do you think? Which version do you prefer, last year’s or this?

I used the NYX Beauty School Palette again for my eyes and face (blush). It’s perfect for creating colorful looks – there’s so much to choose from. And I just had to use the same lipstick than the last year, it’s such a stunning pink color. I should wear it more often. Anyway, here is the full product list:

The Beauty Secret Advent Calendar – Week 2

 

Week 2 of the Beauty Secret Advent Calendar is here! So far I’ve been so happy with the contents of this calendar and I’ve already used up some of the products I got last week.  Let’s see what I got from the 7-11 boxes.

Box 5 – MOROCCANOIL Treatment The Original 25ml
Everyone knows Moroccanoil probably. And so do I. I’ve tried this oil before and it’s amazing. It has a lot of silicones in it which is good for dry hair. In hair care products I don’t mind the silicones. The oil in the product is argan oil – which is my favorite oil for my skin and hair. This one I didn’t open ’cause I have so many other opened hair products and oils at the moment. But this is good and I can’t wait to use it!

Box 6 – MONUSKIN BB Cream Illuminating Primer 25ml
I’ve never heard of this brand and at first when I opened the box I was a bit disappointed. The product looked really boring but I was happy it turned out to be a primer. It has a SPF 15 which is good and it doesn’t contain parabens (I’m sensing a trend here). The funny thing I noticed when looking at the ingredients is that the second ingredient is zinc! It goes like this: Water, Zinc, Silicone +tons of other ingredients. I’ve already tried this and I think it does give a beautiful base and surprisingly it’s more matte than illuminating. It’s really sticky which makes the foundation stick to it well. It lasted well through my 10km run too. I like this primer and will continue using it!

Box 7 – NUDESTIX  Lip & Cheek Pencil in Mystic

I’ve wanted to try this brand so this product was perfect for me. Again I love that the shade is nude so that it goes well with everything and suits everybody. It comes with a sharpener which is good ’cause not everyone has a sharpener for this kind of wide pencil. NUDESTIX has matte pencils too but I’m happy that this one isn’t – it’s not as drying and it has a beautiful sheer finish. This is my favorite product for this week.

Box 8 – REN Revitalising Night Cream 15ml

Okay, some of these products look really dull at first but they end up being awesome. I’ve actually heard of this brand – or seen adverts of it. My skin doesn’t usually take well new products, especially creams, but somehow it has loved this! Again there’s a big list of ingredients it doesn’t contain (parabens, mineral oil, synthetic colorants, silicons..). Apparently REN products never contain those things. I did some research and I’m really impressed with their products and their INCI- lists. This product is actually anti-aging, but my skin has been so dry it welcomed this with open arms. I want to try more REN products in the future – maybe something more suitable for my skin type though.

Box 9 – Ojon damage reverse Instant Restorative Hair Serum 15ml

I already got the Moroccanoil so I wasn’t too happy about this.. On the other hand I do use a lot of hair oils or treatments so I guess hair products are good for me. I haven’t had the time to try this and I forgot to pack it for the weekend while I was away so I might save this one for later. I couldn’t find info on this from lookfantastic.

Box 10 – ARDELL Demi Wispies Lashes

Yes to these! There are two lash brands I love: Eylure and Ardell. Ardell’s Demi Wispies are a classic. You can see me wearing them for example here. I love lashes that have invisible or almost invisible lash band and these are like that.

Box 11 – Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask 50ml

This might be one of those products I would have never picked but be glad at the end of trying it. I wouldn’t know though, ’cause I just came home from my weekend trip and opened the box about two hours ago.. Anyway this is a hair mask that is free from parabens, silicones, SLS or colorants. (Now there’s definitely a trend here!) I opened this just to smell it and I have to say I hate the scent – it’s too heavy for me. This or the Ojon Serum was the most disappointing product for this week.

Are any of these products familiar to you? Which is your favorite?
