Makeup Monday: Linda

Pr-samples & *Adlinks in the post

It’s been a while since my latest makeup transformation post. As I promised, I will do these types of posts every once in a while. Today’s post features one of my dearest friends, Linda. It was actually her birthday on the day we collaborated, so I made sure to glam her up really well!

Makeup Monday: Linda

Linda’s personality comes through these photos. She’s fun, lively and a very trustworthy friend. We’ve actually known each other since kindergarten. Nowadays we rarely play with barbies, but I’d say one of the perks of being a grown up is that instead you can chill with your pajamas on and drink wine together. We literally have this tradition of hanging out in our pajamas (but only on Christmas).

I love doing Linda’s makeup. She has big round eyes, which are perfect for any type of look. She also has beautiful ivory skin, which really benefits from warm bronze colors.

Makeup for atopic skin

Linda has atopic skin, which tends to be dry. I chose products that suit dry skin and are more on the creamy side. Moisturizing primers, BB and CC creams instead of foundations are a safe choice. Mineral makeup is another good choice – I highly recommend Lily Lolo.  I didn’t use powder and if your skin is dry you can totally skip that.

I prepped Linda’s skin with a hydrating primer, that I love to use in Winter. *Too Faced’s Hangover primer is silicone-free, which makes it a perfect base for any foundation. As a foundation I used *Erborian BB-cream, which I’ve been using quite a lot lately. It offers medium coverage and since it’s a cream, it’s more forgiving to any dry spots. I could have also used *Madara’s City CC, which Linda owns herself as well. It’s even more creamier and with a lighter coverage.

I also used a cream blush and a liquid highlighter. With these I created a glowy skin.

If your looking for skincare products, I have recommendations for dry skin in this post.

For Linda’s eyes I used *Morphe 3205 palette. I’ve talked about that palette before and I still love it. It has great colors and the pigment is really good. Bare in mind the palette is huge. As for the glitter lids, I used Smashit glitter palette and the best glitter glue from NYX. The glitter stayed on the whole day (I know, because we had a dinner date later that evening!) and looked beautiful.

For her lips I used *Elizabeth Arden’s Honeysuckle lipstick, which is a very unique nude brown with shimmer. I topped it off with a gloss.

All in all I love this look and I’m very happy with how it turned out. What do you think?

Makeup Monday: Jasmin

Post contains *adlinks & pr-samples

Can you believe this is already my sixth Makeup Monday post? Hopefully you’ve enjoyed this project as much as I have. I will keep posting makeup transformations every now and then here, but for now, this is the last one. In today’s post models gorgeous Jasmin.

Makeup Monday: Jasmin

I was super excited to both meet Jasmin in person and getting her featured on my blog. She is one of the few Finnish people I know, that blogs in English. She is also a social media genius in my books, and her Twitter is very entertaining. Besides blogging Jasmin studies in university, goes to work and is a mom to a toddler. So, another super woman, wouldn’t you say?

For Jasmin’s makeup I knew I wanted to use cool brown shades on the eyes. I visioned a soft smokey eye, which turned out great (if I say so myself). I think Jasmin has an amazing eye shape, which really benefits from a smokey look. I used mainly *NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in the shade Iced Mocha, which is like made for her. And not only, because the name refers to coffee.

I paired the eyes with a glossy nude lip, because that’s just a perfect combo.

Make sure to give Jasmin a follow on her Twitter and check out her blog: overdosed on caffeine.
