Shiny Pretty Things Collection: Top 10 Mac Cosmetics Products for this Holidays 2018

Let’s know which MAC Cosmetics products are the stars of this holidays!

If you read the summer version of this post, you might have been wondering what of this year’s holiday collection products from MAC Cosmetics are the ones that you urgently need to purchase before they are gone. MAC Cosmetics is well known for their amazing seasonal collections and collaborations and this year they have definitely rocked our jingle bells with the Shiny Pretty Things collection.

TOP 10 MAC HOLIDAYS 2018 DEATHLESSVOGUE

This collection has been a delight to see all over media and in their stores, a wonderful combination of disco, technicolor and frosted snowflakes wrapped in bright metallic shades. The concept has been ‘Shine like a Disco Ball’ a not without a reason!

I myself have fallen pretty hard for this collection and this top ten is not just the most beautiful and unique products of their collection but my actual recommendations after having tried and loved this collection that will make history for me as the first one that conquered my heart all the way through and not just from outside.

That means, that in this occasion I will also share some of my own pictures and looks that you can find in my Instagram.

Are you ready to see the ten best products of this collection? Don’t let the holidays end without getting yourself your little stash of Christmas lights and sparkly nights till next holidays!

1. Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Snowflushed or Oh Darling

Highlighter has been one of the strong points this holidays. Shiny Pretty Things are shiny and pretty and that says it all. The collection had two amazing highlighters with different hues and finishes that came both in an amazing packaging and with an embossed gift bow that made the delight of the Christmas lovers.

The rosy one, Snowflushed, was a shade particularly created for this collection, an incredibly beautiful duochrome champagne pink that turned gold and copper with some amazing magenta undertones depending on the lightning. For me, this highlighter was truly unique and this is one of the products that I needed to get. The finish is simply awesome and I would say that if you are only going to get one single product from the whole collection, this is the one you are looking for.

EXTRA DIMENSION SKINFINISH SHINY PRETTY THINGS OH DARLINGTOP 10 MAC HOLIDAYS 2018 DEATHLESSVOGUE

Oh Darling is a soft gold with a much more fluid finish, giving you an almost wet appearance. It is a gorgeous highlighter and this one is part of their regular line, so I wouldn’t stress too much about getting this one unless it is already one of your favorites and you need it in the special packaging. Anyway, if you don’t have a budget and can spend all that you want or if you want it for a gift, it is indeed a beautiful soft gold shade and a wonderful highlighter that will turn heads.

🌟 Oh Darling or Snowflushed? 🌟 The most lovely highlighters from @maccosmetics #ShinyPrettyThings collection! I thought I was going to love only Snowflushed since it’s more pinky hued and duochromatic, but after seeing the festive super metallic fine shimmer of the golden Oh Darling up close I think I will have to get it too! Which one is your favorite? I wish you all a happy Thursday! . . . . . . . @macvelazquez @maccosmetics_es @maccosmeticsuk @maccosmeticsrussia @maccosmeticsaustralia @maccosmeticsfrance #maccosmetics #maccosmetics_es #macobsessed #macshinyprettythings #snowflushed #ohdarling #macmakeup #macmakeupaddict #highlighterjunkie #highlighteraddict #makeupvideos #maccosmeticsrussia #maccosmeticsuk #makeupvids #holidaymakeup #holidays2018 #blackfridaymakeup #blackfriday2018 #kirakiramakeup #instamakeupartist #sparklymakeup #holidaysmakeup #festivemakeup #christmasmakeup #holidays2018 #shinymakeup #deathlessvogue

2. Face Compact Palette

This one is not only beautiful but also really practical. This collection came with two face palettes, in lighter and darker versions, with highlighter, blush and bronzer. You get to try three amazing products in one and you also get to enjoy the festive packaging and embossing. Definitely a must to carry in your handbag at parties or to give as a present to your best friend. There’s little more that you can need than this!

3. Pink Glow Getter Set

Her comes another of my favorites. I still haven’t got it but if I can find it I definitely will. In this amazing set you get an embossed highlighter in a travel size version (can it be any cuter?), a matching Strobe Cream and (the best part for me) a MAC cheek brush in a wonderful portable size that will make you get the perfect glow in two simple steps.

This set came in both a pink and a gold version, so you can choose your favorite undertone to go with.  I always tend to pink ones so this is the one of my wish list, but I repeat it, the brush makes this set a perfect gift and you need to get it if you are into the glow trend. MAC Cosmetics is not only know for the quality of their makeup but also for the great efficiency of their tools and brushes. If you are like me and you have never been able to afford a MAC brush, let this one be your first and glow to the infinite!

TOP 10 MAC HOLIDAYS 2018 DEATHLESSVOGUETOP 10 MAC HOLIDAYS 2018 DEATHLESSVOGUE

I also have to say that though they come with the embossing, these highlighter shades are both of their regular line, so if you fall in love don’t worry! You’ll be able to restock them if you need to keep glowing.

4. Shiny Pretty Lipglass in Rosebuddy

If I had to name a MAC product that is amazingly shiny and amazingly pretty besides highlighters, it would have to be the lipglasses. If you have never tried a lipglass, they are MAC versions of your regular gloss, but taken to the maximum expression. MAC lipglasses have a shine like you have never seen before, and the amount of shimmer, glitter and everything is all you ever needed in a gloss. Say goodbye to regular lip glosses, welcome to Wonderland.

The Shiny Pretty Things collection undoubtedly had to have some special shades for this Christmas, and if I had to pick just one it would be Rosebuddy. There’s no color like red for Christmas and though all the lipglasses in the collection were stunning, this was the most unique and different from the others one. Sure there were some pink and champagne ones that were absolutely gorgeous (like the bright pink Tudor Rose), but you could find shades similar to those in the regular line. On the other hand, you definitely couldn’t find such a perfectly elegant glittery and glossy red lip.

With this one I fell too, just because the reasons I just mentioned. It was too unique a shade to let it pass and I’m a crazy fan of glitter and gloss (because they are shiny and they are pretty). I couldn’t be happier with my decision of going with this shade. The multidimensional gold glitter and the red tint give your lips a look that once you see it on you, you won’t be able to let go.

🥀🌹 Roses 🌹🥀 Happy #MACMonday!!! These two are for me the most stunning glosses of the @maccosmetics #ShinyPrettyThings collection, and they are indeed shiny and pretty! They are Rosebuddy (top) and Tudor Rose (bottom), from which I only got the red one after negotiating a bit with myself because the pink one, though it is clearly stunning, is very similar to the shade Funtabulous which I already own! Tomorrow I have a break from my exams so I hope to find time to do some looks and spend some time here with you ✨ Hope you all have had an amazing Monday! . . . . . . . @maccosmetics_es @maccosmeticsrussia @macvelazquez @maccosmeticsaustralia @macjunkies #macmondays #maccosmetics #maccosmetics_es #macshinyprettythings #maclipglass #maccollection #maclipgloss #macjunkies #limitededitionmakeup #pinklipgloss #makeuppost #makeupphotography #instamakeuplovers #macobsessed #macaddict #macmakeup #macmakeupaddict #macobsession #slave2makeup #instamakeupblogger #makeupjunkies #glittermakeup #christmasmakeup #maccosmeticsrussia #lipglass #maclips #maclipslipslips #deathlessvogue

5. Shiny Pretty Lipstick in Straight Fire

Metallics are in and the frost finish is the new trend. If you have any doubts about it, check all the latest makeup launches of the holidays, take for example the Marc Jacobs Beauty Leopard Frost collection. The name says it all.

MAC obviously was not going to be less and the Shiny Pretty Things collection included five different shades of lipstick, which from them two were Frost and one was Metallic. Guess which one was my pick for this top ten.

As I said with the lipglass, nothing says Christmas like a good red and nothing says I’m ready to start 2019 like a good metallic. Straight Fire gives you everything you need of a lipstick bullet for this holidays and the year to come.

Though I was able to try and use this one to create some lovely lip looks, I sadly didn’t purchase it, but if I find it still available I sure will!

✨🔥Baby I’m a house on fire, And I wanna keep burning🔥✨ Happy #MACMonday! Today I’ve finally been able to see and try the #ShinyPrettyThings collection and oooh my. It is gorgeous. I would have taken every single item with me if I could afford that. The eyeshadows are a DREAM and some of the glosses OMG I just can’t even describe them, you’ll have to see them here soon. And the highlighters. I’m dead, literally dead. From today on, for me it’s officially Christmas. I did this lip art at the store using the ‘Straight Fire’ Lipstick topped with the Extra Dimension Skinfinish in ‘Snowflushed’ and some ‘Major Win’ Eye Shadow, all from the holiday collection. I ABSOLUTELY recommend to you all to go to a store as soon as you can and swatch everything because no matter how many pictures I can take, it still won’t make the collection justice. Anyhow you know I’ll be posting about it like crazy so I really hope you like it! ✨ . Y como siempre muchísimas gracias al personal de @macvelazquez por ser el más profesional y agradable que he conocido, por dejarme ir alli a trastear y por hacerme sentir siempre como en casa, sois los mejores ♥️♥️♥️ . . . . . . . @maccosmetics @maccosmetics_es #macshinyprettythings #snowflushed #majorwin #macholiday2018 #maccosmetics #maccosmetics_es #straightfire #maclips #macgirls #macjunkies #machighlighter #editorialmakeup #avantgardemakeup #lipswatch #lipart #instamakeupartist #instamakeuplovers #macaddict #slave2makeup #deathlessvogue

✨❄️It’s cold outside❄️✨ These are some of the wonderful products that I tried yesterday from @maccosmetics #ShinyPrettyThings collection, and particularly are the ones I mostly used for yesterday’s lip art. I am completely in love with the Extra Dimension Skinfinish Highlighter in ‘Snowflushed’ from this collection, which I already had my on, but I must say that the ‘Straight Fire’ Lipstick was a lovely surprise. The color is an absolutely festive shade of crimson, with cold undertones and a metallic finish that leaves your lips as lovely as a a red Christmas bow. Though I used it for the lip arts I did (there are more coming!) I didn’t buy it at the end (for now) because I wanted to control my festive spending euphoria. I obviously got the Snowflushed Highlighter because I fell for it the first time I saw it on Instagram and it was love a first sight, so yeah, I got that one so you’ll see more of it soon ✨ All in all, I’ll post what I exactly bought pretty soon but I just wanted to show you how pretty this pair looked! Are you going to pick something from this collection? I hope you all had a great Sunday and see you soon with more! ✨ . . . . . . . @maccosmetics_es @macvelazquez @maccosmeticsuk @maccosmeticsrussia @macjunkies @maccosmeticsjapan @maccosmeticsfrance @maccosmeticscanada @maccosmeticsaustralia @maccosmeticsdeutschland @maccosmeticsitalia @maccosmeticsnl @maccosmeticsbelgium #macshinyprettythings #macsnowflushed #snowflushed #machighlighter #maclips #maclipstick #macstore #maccosmetics #maccosmetics_es #macmakeup #instamakeupartist #instamakeuplovers #highlighterjunkie #highlighteronfleek #highlighteronpoint #redlipstick #straightfire #slave2makeup #maclipsticks #deathlessvogue

6. Rose Eye Palette

Two palettes were released for this collection, one with blue shades and one with pink shades. Like I have said before, I always tend to go for pink shades though I’m aware that as much as I tend to avoid it, blue is a stunning color that suits most of the people, so I can say that both palettes were absolutely gorgeous and a good product to get if you want to achieve a dazzling party-ready look with just one product (since they also include a double ended brush). But for me, if you had to pick only one of the palettes, the pink one had to be that one. Reds and burgundy are the post party drama suitable colors, and the soft and deep browns ensure you end up achieving a show stopping smokey eye or a monochromatic technicolor look: you choose!

The versatility of this palette makes it a must that you would be able to keep using and loving far past the holidays and all throughout the year.

7. Shiny Pretty Eyeshadow in Major Win or Make a

Wish

MAC hit the jackpot with these eyeshadows and if you have seen them swatched or someone wearing them, you know what I am talking about. The sparkle effect is so amazing that the finish looks wet. It’s like fairy dust made eyeshadow.

All of the shades of this collection have that stunning effect, but if I had to pick the most unique ones, I would say Major Win and Make a Wish.

SHINY PRETTY EYE SHADOW MAJOR WIN 3

Major Win has a duochrome effect similar to the one in Snowflushed, in fact I would say that they are a perfect pain. It is like a copper/rose shade that turns more marron glacé or more silver depending on the lightning. If you are only going to pick one, this is it, you won’t regret it.

I belong to that probably not small group of people who fell under the spell or Major Win, and though I have used it to create a few looks, the one that I purchase still remains untouched because it is so pretty that it would actually take some time for me to bring myself to start using it (Snowflushed had the same effect on me!).

✨🌟Major Win🌟✨ Happy #MACMonday lovely people! Here you have one of the stunning eyeshadows of the #ShinyPrettyThings collection from @maccosmetics. They have an incredible finish far more dazzling than the Dazzleshadows or than anything I’ve ever seen. They are so sparkly and the particles are so fine that it looks almost wet. You’ll see what I’m talking about when I post a look with this one!!! I think it will be perfect for a glossy look ✨ Also this and the green one (which I didn’t get yet) are my favorite shades of the collection, though all of them are really pretty, Major Win is the one that has a most chromatic feel to it. What do you think about this collection? Any particular item that caught your attention? I hope you all are having a fantastic Monday! . . . . . . . @maccosmetics_es @maccosmeticsuk @maccosmeticscanada @maccosmeticsrussia @maccosmeticsaustralia @maccosmeticsjapan @maccosmeticsnl @maccosmeticsitalia @maccosmeticsfrance @maccosmeticsdeutschland @maccosmeticsbrasil @maccosmeticsturkiye @maccosmeticsindia @macjunkies @macvelazquez @macjunkies #maccosmetics #majorwin #mac217 #maccosmetics_es #maceyeshadow #limitededitionmakeup #majorwineyeshadow #holidays2018makeup #holidays2018 #makeupvideo #kirakiramakeup #makeuppost #instamakeupartist #makeupproducts #macobsession #makeupvideos #instamakeuplovers #instamakeupblogger #instavideos #macmondays #maccosmeticsrussia #maccosmeticsitalia #maccosmeticsuk #deathlessvogue

If I had to pick another eyeshadow shade after Major Win, it would definitely be Make a Wish. This is probably the most directly Christmassy since it is of a beautiful pine green shade but with a great metallic finish and a silver sparkle that will make you fall in love. The amazing that this would look paired with Straight Fire or Rosebuddy on the lips is what made me choose this one as a must. Green and red are always a winning combination, but this one is just better!

8. Mini Glitter and Pigments Pink Set

If you are a lover of glitter, bold looks and disco, this set was made for you. And it was for sure made for me. Fuchsia, purple, glitter, holographic effects, iridescence… this set has it all. Though this set also came in a gold version with shades more on the nude side, I had to pick this pink version for obvious reasons.

TOP 10 MAC HOLIDAYS 2018 DEATHLESSVOGUE

As I know that my preferences are not the ones of everybody, I can’t say it objectively, but for me, this is the best product in the whole collection.

MAC glitter and pigments are one of the best products of the brand in my opinion and this selection is just beyond stunning. Also the size of the containers is actually bigger than the usual travel sizes, which was a really pleasant surprise!

9. Black Cherry Sweet Scrub Set

For me, no top ten is complete without a dark lip. And if you have a set that includes a lip scrub, a lip primer, and a dark matte liquid lipstick, I’m all in. The collection came with a lot of sets with combinations of products that were more than convenient to have, but this one is just indispensable.

TOP 10 MAC HOLIDAYS 2018 DEATHLESSVOGUETOP 10 MAC HOLIDAYS 2018 DEATHLESSVOGUE

With this set, you can actually make a bold statement without wearing anything else but this. The lipstick shade is stunning enough to not need anything else to be the center of attention, and the scrub and primer will leave you lips feeling and looking so good that the lipstick will be just the cherry on top of the cake.

The shade that they chose for this kit is gorgeous, and that deserved a separate note.

10. Lip Kit

If you were waiting for the collector’s item, this is it.

This set was so good last year that they had to bring it back, and I support that decision. It had such a success that though I’ve spent the whole year drooling over this kit on Instagram, when I went to actually purchase it, it was sold out.

Not only you get ten different lipstick shades that can cover your needs for the whole holidays and the whole year, but you can carry them home in the most stunning packaging ever, a metallic rainbow of pinks, mauves, reds, nudes and purple that fantastically match each shade.

So pretty that you won’t be able to just take one to the party, you’ll need to carry all of them!

I hope that you enjoyed this top ten and that you feel inspired to get some of these beauties before they are gone.

Take a little bit of this holidays with you till the next ones with this amazing collection and never regret spending your money on it!

I really hope that you all had a holiday as dazzling and amazing as this collection.

Lots of love and see you around here soon!

Peach Gold: Orange, the Color for this Summer 2018

Fortunately, summer is here again, full of color, velvety textures and shimmer. The makeup industry is bubbling up with new ranges, products and collections to spice up (wink at the Moroccan Spice palette from Fenty Beauty) our summer days and nights. In fact we already talked about the 10 MAC products perfect for this summer!

Among all those releases and exciting new trends, I’ve noticed that there’s one that seems to be the star of this summer 2018. And I personally love it!

View this post on Instagram

🌅✨ Beach Please! ✨🌅 Happy Saturday lovely people! Here you have my favorite collection of the summer! The Brach Please collection from @fentybeauty is everything I needed for this summer. The freestyle highlighters and really freestyle and amazingly pigmented and metallic, perfect for getting creative by the ocean. The summer Daze lip trio is also so inspiring and makes me dream of evil mermaids and starry nights and the shore. It is all simply so stunning! I’ve been able to bring myself to use the freestyle highlighters almost every day to create some looks but I still have some respect for the lip trio since I have only wore them once and I’m still having that ‘new makeup, don’t spoil’ feeling. I’ll try to use them today now that I feel determined!

Summer Vibes

If you have been following the beauty news and the social media of the giants of cosmetics and makeup trends, you may have notice that this summer everything is (as it could’t be other way) glow, bright colors, rich shades, blinding highlighting and bronzers worthy of a Mediterranean or Caribbean goddess.

It’s summer and it’s the season to be ready to look naturally bronzed and glowy at the beach with some perfectly tousled waves and then be the fiercest looking at the night club. I love summer (and it is the only thing that I love about it) because the opportunities to rock a huge variety of looks and trends are enormous. And you can only get so creative in summer.

Anyhow, after this little ode to the summer that I have indulge myself in writing, what I wanted to bring you today is a theory that I’ve been quietly observing and testing as I saw release after release and campaign after campaign all over the internet, the stores and the social media of the typically iconic makeup brands.

The thing is this: orange gold is the color of this summer 2018.

Peach Gold

I am talking about these few shades that vary among the bright orange, frost gold peach, strawberry bronze, rich copper, but most of all, this orange gold that appears to be in every single makeup release this summer, and though this articles is about that shade as an eyeshadow and the new palettes that contain them, it surely doesn’t end there. Lots of other products, packagings and full makeup lines have already ditched the rose gold in awe to the new queen: orange gold. Or peach gold if you think that sounds fancier, just remember, a deep, bright peach gold.

The Palettes

Now to dive right into this theory, I have three different palettes from very different makeup brands that perfectly represent and support this theory. After talking about them and remarking which shades (the star orange gold shade that we are talking about is by the way in EVERY palette) are the ones that support this whole chromatic trend, we can try and add a few more examples out of the eyeshadow palette world.

So, without further ado and hoping to have time to talk about everything I had in mind, here I bring you the palettes!

Lemonade Craze Platte by Maybelline

Of the three palettes that I’m going to talk about, this is the only one that I’ve actually managed to put my hands on. Also, maybe it was he first to break through this trend this year, since it was one of the first to be released. The shades speak clearly of summer vibes and all kinds of lemonade. Let’s have a look a it!

DEATHLESSVOGUE Peach Gold: Orange, the Color for this Summer 2018
DEATHLESSVOGUE Peach Gold: Orange, the Color for this Summer 2018

As you can see, the palette was released in two different formats, one squared and one rectangular, depending on the country of the release. Anyhow, the shades were the same, and the color scheme behind it really fits this family of colors that has become so so popular this summer.

Since I own this one, I can talk a little more about this one. All the shades are very pigmented, which I didn’t expect from a palette from Maybelline. I must say that the quality of drugstore makeup has improved these last years a lot. My favorite shades are ‘Ice Pop‘ (a stunning deep magenta), ‘Lemonade Craze‘ (bright warm yellow), ‘Coral Punch‘ (pure soft orange) and ‘Sugar Coated‘, which will be the ‘peach gold’ shade of this palette an amazingly shimmery deep orange with gold iridescence.

As I said, the quality of the shadows was really good, slightly buttery, soft, and easy to work with and blend. The amount of looks you can create with this one is amazing.

I’ll also leave you here some of my own pictures from Instagram featuring this palette. One of them got resposted by @maybelline itself and it made me really really happy! This was you can get a closer and more personal look to the palette.

I’ve been after this one since it started appearing on IG and it has taken so long to arrive to my country, but it was worth the wait! My absolute favorite shade is Sugar Coated, which is mainly the shade of this summer for me, followed by Icepop, Coral Punch and Lemonade Craze. This palette also totally backs up my theory of orange gold being the color for this summer 2018 so expect to see it included in my blog post! Sugar Coated and this whole palette represents this trend perfectly, like the new @kyliecosmetics palette and the @marcbeauty Fantascene palette! . And you, what do you think about this palette? Which is your favorite shade from it? . This edit was one of my favorite, so let me know what do you think! . . . . . . . @maybelline_es #maybelline #maybellineespaña #lemonadecraze #mnyitlook #mny #mnymakeup #maybellineeyeshadowpalette #maybellineeyeshadow #maybellinesummer #lemonadecrazepalette #lemonadecrazeeyeshadowpalette #maybellinepalette #makeupedit #lemonademakeup #summermakeup #summer2018makeup #eyeshadowpalette #makeupmess #makeupjunkies #slave2makeup #makeupphotography #makeuppornphotography #deathlessvogue

All of the @maybelline Lemonade Craze palette shades close and personal! 🍋 . I really love this palette, the shades are really pigmented and easy to work with, powdery but not too much, and the colors of it are so perfect for summer! 🍋 I substituted Mac Monday for Maybelline Monday today since I only have my Pinklite and Show Gold here with me on vacation, but I made an order yesterday for Lipstick Day and I’ll show it to you as soon as it arrives! . I hope you all have a wonderful Monday! 🍋 . . . . . . . #eyeshadowpalette #maybelline #maybellinepalette #lemonadecraze #lemonadecrazepalette #summerpalette #summereyeshadowpalette #sparklyeyeshadow #makeupvideo #maybellineespaña #mnyitlook #mny #mnymakeup #maybellinepalette #eyeshadowcloseup #makeuppalette #pinklemonade #peachlemonade #kirakiramakeup #slave2makeup #beautyaddicts #honestreview #maybellinereview #honestreviews #maybellinemakeup #deathlessvogue

Summer Palette by Kylie Cosmetics

This can be the boldest palettes of all the ones we are going to see. The blood orange shade is definitely one of the most gorgeous of this summer, and dark shades that includes even black, allow you to create deeper and more dramatic looks. It also has some shimmer and metallic golds and coppers to compliment the orange  and red shades.

I have never tried Kylie Cosmetics but this one sure sounds like one I would love to play with!

Also I must say that the looks that Kylie wears in the promotional pictures of the palette is simply stunning and the lip shade pairs perfectly with the eye look. In love!

 

Eye-Conic palette by Marc Jacobs

The Eye-Conic palette was part of the wonderful Coconut Collection by Marc Jacobs, which included a new shade of their famous Dew Drops, and that sadly I haven’t had the opportunity to try (yet). The whole concept behind the collection and the design of the packagings caught my eye since the beginning, but sadly I still hadn’t bought anything from it.

All the shades in the palette looked perfect for me, specially the orange gold shade, called ‘Meet Ya‘ which was screaming my name. I’ve been a Marc Jacobs fan since forever and this time it was really hard not to get this particular palette. It is  the most elegant of all the ones that have been released with this color scheme and the packaging is just perfect.

The other shades were more toned down than in other palettes, so maybe this one isn’t the one for you if you a looking to create more fun, bright looks.

BONUS: Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter duo in ‘Mimosa Sunrise’ and ‘Sangria Sunset’ by Fenty Beauty

Directly from my personal collection, I couldn’t help but remember that one of my favorite products for this summer 2018 had that ‘peach gold’ shade in it and I had to include it!
It is the absolutely stunning Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter duo from Fenty Beauty, and the particular shade is called ‘Mimosa Sunrise’. I have to say that these highlighters are a delight and perform greatly from a subtle wash of colors for your cheeks and lids to blinding noticeable-from-space impact and metallic pay off.
I totally recommend these to creative makeup artists or people who want to experiment with makeup and have fun.

Take a look at that gorgeous color!

And that is it for now, stay tuned because the Fashion Weeks are over and the autumn trends are here and there are a thousand things I want to write about!
Lots of love!
