Black Friday, Cyber Week.. I doubt I’m the best to give shopping tips (since it’s still quite new in Finland) but I wanted to share my black friday inspired look. And by that I mean I just applied black everywhere. And highlight. I applied highlighter a ton.
I’m always amazed how subtle makeup can look in photos vs. in real life. I swear I looked crazy but here it’s just like a regular dark eyeshadow with a black lip. You can’t even tell I have black eyeshadow on my brows. Anyway – I fell in love with black lips. I may need to buy one. I swear it would look good with neutral eye makeup. Right?
If you have any good shopping advice with international shipping – I’m all ears! I need some Z-palettes and more glitter in my life.

I have some infection on my eye so I’ve not put makeup on them for a while. That doesn’t stop me from playing with other face makeup though. Now that my acne is worse I really enjoy putting an effor to my foundation. A full coverage foundation may look heavy and cakey but with blush, contour and highlight you can bring your face back to life. I’ve always loved sparkly and dewy cheeks and cheekbones so that’s what I did today. I chose warm, summery colours for my face. I applied peachy blush and paired it with warm girly light pink lips.
There is one problem with sparkly products though – they tend to make your impurities or texture on the skin show more. So actually for acne-prone skin a matte shade would be best. But I don’t really mind this and let myself sparkle all the way to the Africa if I want to.
I rarely show my makeup with glasses on but today I made an exception since I wasn’t wearing any makeup on them. They really help to bring the look together and bring some definition to my eyes!
