Makeup Monday: Adele



Meet Adele – one of the few friends I actually met through blogging. She no longer writes a blog (I wish!), but when she did, she blogged about style. I love her style and she has this beautiful glamour about her. After doing Adele’s makeup she said she felt like a Disney princess. I would say that’s a success!

Makeup Monday: Adele

For Adele’s makeup I went for an elegant look that focuses on the eyes and the lips. Since Adele has big beautiful eyes and the makeup brings them out even more, I chose a red lip that balances the look. I used individual false lashes on her that really blended in nicely with her already voluminous lashes.

Adele had some skin redness, so I chose cool shades. That’s a great trick for anyone struggling with redness. Choose a cool red for the lips, a cool blush shade and cool eyeshadows to really brighten up the skin.

Also – I need to give a quick recommendation on the brow pencil I used on Adele and have been using a lot lately. *Delilah Brow Groom in the shade Sable is such a great brow product! The color is cool and suits both blondes and brunettes, it’s easy to create brow strokes or draw a thicker line with the pen, it lasts well and it comes with a spoolie brush. I got the brow pen from Lookfantastic Advent Calendar last year. Highly recommend it!

Makeup Monday: Pauliina


Meet Pauliina – one of my friends who I’ve known since kindergarten. I will forever remember the moment I sat next to her on the windowsill and asked: “Will you play with me?”. Ever since that moment, we’ve been close friends. I’ve done her makeup a few times and I’m always excited to get to play with her features. This time we actually had a party to attend to, so I made her makeup glamorous with a bit of Kim K vibe.

Makeup Monday: Pauliina

Pauliina had a fresh self tan on, so I used a slightly darker foundation on her than I normally would use. For the eyes I used warm bronze shades, which you can’t go wrong with. Also, those are the shades that most ask for. But actually warm bronze shades are perfect for bright blue eyes. Illamasqua’s Nude Collection *Unveiled Artistry Palette is your perfect warm neutral palette with some wearable pops of colors too. The matte colors are super creamy and blendable and the metallic shades are super pigmented and pretty.

I also used a touch of pink glitter on the lid just to make the look a bit more extra.

For her lips I chose a warm nude with a glossy finish. I’m still all about glowy, shiny and glossy finishes. They just look more natural and fresh.

Products used:

beautyblender Bounce foundation 3.3
*Madara City CC, Medium Beige (I know, I just had to use it again! Mixed about half of this and half of foundation.)

What do you think of the look?
