Tutorial: Multitasking with makeup

It may sound weird, but whenever I’m doing other people’s makeup – I usually am too busy to do my own face. I like to do my makeup in peace, but on work days I just feel like there’s not enough time – or maybe I just prefer using the time to enjoy my coffee. I still want to look professional so I do wear makeup (obviously if I’m doing your makeup, you’re gonna judge my makeup/my skills a bit). But for work occassions, I usually get ready pretty quickly.

Let’s take this makeup, for example. Here I’m wearing a good base, mascara and some color on my brows. Then I took three products and used them all over the face to make it look like I made more of an effort. I multitasked with three products to save time. And to make the makeup look more fun and to show my personality.

Scared to use colors in your makeup? Here are great tips to use color in your everyday makeup, subtly.

The three products that worked for the whole face are a blush, a lipstick and a highlighting palette.

Here is a quick tutorial on how multitask with those three products and get ready quickly!

Before After quick makeup

A blush
I used a peachy pink blush on my cheeks and as an eyeshadow. They match perfectly so it looks great – you don’t have to worry about your blush arguing with your lid color. You can apply it with a brush or with your fingers – I just used my fingers.quick makeup tutorial

  1. Apply the blush at the center of the cheeks and blend upwards. This works best for square-face shapes, but it can work for other face shapes as well. It gives you a young, fresh look.fresh makeup tutorial
  2. Apply the blush all over the lid and a bit above the crease – so that you can see the color a bit when eyes are open.

A lipstick
 I used a fresh pink lipstick on my lips and also as an eyeshadow. I have worn lipstick on my eyes before too (post!), but of course you need to be sure it’s safe for your eyes. Zuii’s lipstick is organic and made from natural oils, waxes etc. so it’s safe for my eyes too. Actually, if you look at their ingredient list they have pretty similar ingredients! I took a tiny bit of the lipstick on my little finger and used it on my outer corner to give my eyes a bit of an contour.multitasking makeup

3. Apply the lipstick to your lips as usual. If it tends to get to your fine lines, line your lips first.

4. Take a bit of the lipstick to your index finger and press it on the outer corners of your eyes. Blend it upwards and towards your lids, in a V-shape. It acts as a cream eye shadow, so it’s super easy to blend.

A highlighter
Highlighter, the perfect way to make your skin look glowy and fresh! Highlight also works great as an eyeshadow. I applied the highlight on my face and on my inner corners.

5. Highlight your face the way you want. The pink dots show you, where to highlight. (Of course, you apply it wherever you like. You choose your glow level.)

6. Apply the higlighter to your inner corners. Here I used a brush, just because my fingers are too clumsy for such small area.

When you’re using the same stuff all over your face – they are obviously gonna match perfectly.

10 BEST BEAUTY PRODUCTS OF THE YEAR 2016

This year is almost over and it’s time to choose the winners – the best beauty products of the year. I use a lot of different products so choosing the ultimate products wasn’t easy. There are so many amazing products that I love and use constantly but I didn’t want to choose 100 products..

Instead I picked you 10 products that I used during this year and that I absolutely love and recommend to you. (I wanted to type on every single one of these products: this is the best!!!! but I chose to express myself differently.)

*adlinks marked

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer *link
There is magic in this world and it goes by the name NARS RCC. This is a lifesaver. I’m never giving up on this one (or looking tired again)! My shade is Vanilla.

This can be found on almost every makeup look I do.

MAC Satin Lipstick in FAUX *link
I feel like I hopped on to the MAC-train a little late but I’m glad I did. Their lipsticks are good! I love this beautiful nude shade (muted mauve-pink). This leaves a semi matte finish.

Here is an earlier review and a photo of me wearing this lipstick.

Urban Decay Vice 4
This is seriously the best palette I own. It has some nude and brown shades and then it has all the colors I could wish for. It’s the perfect size too and I love the big mirror – I often take this with me when I’m travelling.

See makeup looks made with this palette under the Vice4 Tag.

Philosophy purity made simple *link
Oh, purity. You make my life a lot easier. Taking off makeup can sometimes be exhausting, but with this it’s quick. I remove all my makeup (face, lips, eyes) with this and continue with my life. Purity made simple literally.

Madara SOS Hydra Repair Intensive Serum – *link
A moisturising serum for all skin types that actually works for my mixed and sometimes really oily skin. Lightweight, soft and lovely. Works as a serum or as a moisturizer in Summer.

PATYKA Almond Blossom Moisturising Body Milk – *link

Body lotion that made it to this list – let’s give applause! Ever since I got this lotion I’ve had a feeling I don’t want to let go of it. This is my second product already. This smells like heaven, is lightweight and nourishes my body really well.

Earlier post about new green beauty favorites here.

RITUALS The Ritual of Sakura Foaming Shower Gel *link
Shower gels matter. I’ve understand it’s an easy way of bringing luxury into your every day life. I love these foaming shower gels from Rituals and I have them in different scents. This scent is really clean and pure and quite unisex.

 UNIQUE Hair Care Moisturizing Shampoo

The best thing for my difficult, dry and sometimes oily scalp: 100% organic shampoo. This feels like a regular shampoo, it foams and it cleanses well – all without the usual chemicals that’s in shampoos. This is a keeper.

Wella Professionals Eimi Perfect Me Lightweight BB Lotion *link
The best BB-cream of the year is for hair. This product is lightweight yet it makes my hair soft and easy to work with. And it’s really long lasting.

My earlier review about this product here.

HURRAW! moon balm lip balm – *link
The holy grail of my existence. This is the lipbalm. This is the most hydrating and the best lip balm there is – again – without any harmful chemicals. It’s organic, vegan and made with raw ingredients. We all know it: we eat a lot of the products we put on our lips.. so this is the perfect (and safe) choice for your lips.

Now. Tell me: What are your top beauty products for this year? 

Also, I think in year 2017 I will be start doing Monthly Favorites – what do you think about that?
