Favourite Friday #2: The accent nail

Painting my nails requires some time, I'm talking of a whole episode of Revenge or The Vampire Diaries kinda time.
My favourite combination right now is a rosy nude with a rose gold sparkle accent nail. Butter LONDON Bit Faker and Chanel Rose Caché are just the perfect match! I'm a big fan of the Butter LONDON nail polish. It's like sandy gold glitter in a bottle - love. If the Chanel nail polish didn't chip so badly I would like it even more! The colour is absolutely gorgeous but the chipping, quel dommage ... Two coats of this followed by my Butter LONDON Topcoat and I can drool over some #Delena action or watch Emily kick some asses.

What do you do whilst painting your nails?

Have a nice weekend everyone!

Lots of love,

What's on my face Wednesday #1

Hey lovelies!

Today I thought I could do one of my favourite posts: What's on my face!
I love reading other's WOMF to get inspirations for new products. 
So here's mine.

Estée Lauder Matte Perfecting Primer
Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light to Medium Peach
Chanel Perfection Lumière in Beige 50
Laura Mercier Undercover Pot in Nr.3

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Shore
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow in Champagne 
Bobbi Brown Metallic Eye Shadow in Velvet Plum 
Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Chocolate Shimmer Ink
Max Factor False Lash Effect 24h in black
Max Factor Clump Defy waterproof in black

Laura Mercier Baked Blush Bronze in Ritual (LE)
MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Ambering Rose
Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in Kir Sugar 7

This is just a neutral everyday autumn make up with a 'bolder' lip.  
I don't use waterproof mascara everyday on my upper lashes but I like using it on my lower lashes, so my mascara doesn't smudge. 

What's your favourite mascara?

I hope you liked the look!

Lots of love,

Favourite Friday #1 : Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in 866 Paparazzi

Lipstick? Me? In red? -  No way.
Well, people say that you change in a relationship and one thing definitely changed: my new love for lipsticks! I always went for sheer lipglosses in nude colours but lipglosses just aren't an option if you want to kiss your boyfriend. Boy with sticky lips? No, thanks. 
So now that I've discovered my love for lipsticks I went all cray cray and adventurous and even bought one in red.

This little burgundy, plummy and all around lovely bad boy from Dior is my absolute favourite lipstick at the moment. Such a perfect autumn shade!
I mostly use this with a lip brush and then conceal around my lips to give it that polished and edgy look. Sometimes I don't have enough time in the morning, so I just put some black eyeliner on my eyelids, smudge it out, some mascara, foundation, concealer, blush and this lipstick and voilà - I'm good to go.
I like to prime my lips with some lip balm before I use such a "dark" shade, because no one wants to see flaky and chapped lips, right? So with my Burt's Bees Repleneshing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil this lipstick has quite a glossy finish and lasts up to 4 hours before I have to reapply it. What I like most about this lipstick is that when it fades, it leaves an even stain on your lips.

What is your favourite autumn lip product?

Lots of love,
