June 2016 Favorites

Another month, another favorites post. Ain´t that how it goes? I will tell you what was not my favorite this month in the post here:

The weather!

 

June 2016 Favorites

 

You see, it was raining pretty much all June, and with June 21th coming along, I knew the days were going to get shorter. Now I am all about those long, warm and light summer evenings spend outdoors with friends and a cold drink, and if that didn´t happen before the nights are getting longer again, I feel cheated.

But enough moaning about the weather, it is time for the things I enjoyed!

May 2016 Favorites

Before my Favorites-break I used to do „Favorite Face of..“ posts, where I showed you my most worn makeup in the form of a miniature tutorial.

But looking back now, only a few things that I used really were true favorites. Many of the things (like concealers or mascara) just got applied for the sake of finishing them. And on top of that my everyday makeup isn’t probably something you really want to see, as it is a little repetitive over time.

So I decided to go for a true monthly favorites style this time, including makeup, skincare and a few other things that have been entertaining me, conveniently summarized as lifestyle, which can be almost anything.

Favorite Face of February 2016

If you are not familiar with the „Favorite Face of …“ series, click here for a little introduction. Short story even shorter, it is the makeup that I wore most during that month, featuring the favorite (as in most used) makeup products.

 

Brown eyes and a bright fuchsia lip. And an awkward face, because... why not?

Even though I don’t celebrate Valentines Day, I feel like February is the month were you really can´t escape the pinks. And even though pink usually looks either washed out on me or like I am trying to to Barbie-Cosplay (I wish I had that waist…), I managed to find a pink lip color I fell in love with to see me through this month.

And once again, I filmed everything for You Tube. Enjoy!

Soft smokey eye tutorial – Favorite Face of December 2015

If you have been around for a while now, you may have gotten used to my „Favorite Face of…“ series. Of course I cant tell whether you are bored out of your mind or looking forward to my monthly makeup ramble, but I have been meaning to keep it up.

Now I have started this month with a yearly favorites, so the „Favorite Face of…“ is a little late and probably does no longer count as „December Favorites“, which is why I named it „Tutorial“ for the upload on You Tube.

Not very surprising it features a soft smokey eye, using browns and a hint of violet (I feel I have been wearing barely anything else this winter), paired with either a nude or a bolder lip.

You all know the disclaimers, I am no professional, just an enthusiastic amateur, both when it comes to makeup and to videos, but I hope you enjoy nonetheless.

Favorite products 2015 Part I – Skincare, hair care, body care

It is the final days of 2015, a time spend on reflecting and looking back, so I figured I´d share my musings with you and show you my favorite products of 2015.

To help you decide what you want to watch, I divided it into two videos: One featuring skin-, hair and body care and one talking all things makeup. That way I was able to keep them short(er) as well, which is always a bonus.

My top three holiday nail polishes – Glitters and red

Red is a shade that symbolizes Christmas more than anything else for me. The red leaves of the poinsettia, red lipstick and – of course – red nails.

Not just any red, of course. No burgundy red, no pink red, no, a true red, maybe with a hint of glitter. Only a hint, mind you, I really can´t be bothered with the whole glitter polish removal process.

A little glitter, a little red, a little gold - all I want for the holidays

As many of you may know already, I am currently at home. But as I  stated here, I wore makeup almost every single day to get me into a „work mindset“. Granted, it was a quick and easy look skipping foundation most days, but it was all I needed to feel ready to be productive. Read more

Many of you will know by now that I am usually not wearing much makeup when working. But as I am home at the moment (read here why), I was able to go all out and enjoy fall makeup at its finest.
