Time keeps on slippin'

I haven't made many nice looks lately. Because a) I am freezing my ass off at 8am and postpone the moment of facing the cold so long that I end up only having 10 minutes. And b) The cold and temperature changes have ruined my skin once again, and I don't feel like doing fancy eyelooks when my face looks like a mess. On top of that I wasn't able to reach my picture archives for a few days, but I finally managed to dig up some pics that I'd like to share :)

I was inspired by the 60's for this look. It's not the most flattering look on me because it emphasizes my hooded eyelids and under-eye circles a lot, but I liked it anyway. Sometimes looking a bit grungy can have it's charm too. I keep telling myself that, haha :p

Read on for the product list and more pictures!

Product list:

Benefit Erase Paste
Lancome Teint Miracle foundation
Light dusting with MAD minerals foundation in fair

Mac Blacktrack Fluidline (almost dried out)
Shiro cosmetics eyeshadow in Triforce
Catrice precision eye pencil in 080 Wildthing (smudged in the outer V as a darkbase)
Maybelline The Falsies wp mascara

Does anyone have a winter skincare holy grail that might help me out? I hate having dry flaky skin..

Thanks for reading!



  1. I swear by Nivea Creme at night. But then my winters are mild compared to yours. I really love the shades of gold you've used here. The cat-eye shape you've created is really nice, too.

  2. cat eye was my first thought, but then when you mentioned the 60's, so yes that works to! but i liked the shape of this, and the harsh line in the crease! also the golden touch wasn't so bad either!
    i use celestial from Lush whenever my skin has some dry spots (which happen seldom since i have such oily skin!) but i use it as a nightcream when i want to boost the skin. smells vanilla, and that's not too bad huh!?//Azure

  3. Thanks! It's not as clean as I wanted, but I have a lot to learn about working with mineral eyeshadows, and my new brushes :)

    I'll ask a sample of celestial next time i go to lush, I tried imperialis but that wasn't moisturizing enough for me. I have been cleansing my make-up with olive oil the past few days and my skin is looking a lot better already, let's hope I don't break out now..
