I'm a Barbie Girl!

I wanted to do something just for fun today and found my old 80s Barbie look so I wanted to improve it. Just a tiny adjustments later I got this:

Who? Me?

Last day of my holiday today and tomorrow it's back to work for me. Also it's 1st of August tomorrow, where on earth did the summer go?

Bad Romance

This look I did for MUG's Lady Gaga weekly challenge but decided not to post it there since it isn't as good as I wanted. Not sure if I will try another Lady Gaga look at all but we'll see.

I will show it to you anyway. This is from Bad Romance video - from the end.

Can't remember what I used for this but apparently a lot of black eyeshadow and bronzer :P

LOTD ~ Touch of Gold

I wanted to do a Steampunk-y look today so I used rusty browns and black. Unfortunately didn't find any good brass colour so had to use gold. Paired the dark eyes with nude lips and quite fresh-lookin face.

Urban Decay Perversion e/s
Aromaleigh - Perpetual Motion, Magick & Metal
Hi-Fi Cosmetics - Decadence, Don't Wanna Be Friends (for the golden spots)

On cheeks I have MaxFactor's English Rose blush and on lips Gosh's Darling with a dab of Victoria's Secret lipgloss in Bananas!

With this look I head to Helsinki to meet up with a friend.

LOTD ~ Aztec Queen

I wanted to use some glitter I got from Hi-Fi Cosmetics earlier this month (will show pics of the haul and swatches soon, promise). I got two different glitters - silver and gold - and since it's summer I wanted to use the golden one.

I named the look Aztec Queen since I used chocolate brown and gold in a look and well, Aztecs were known for both.

And yes, I'm going to do some grocery shopping with this look.

I have two days left of holiday before I go back to work. Luckily one week holiday left for autumn so I get a little break when it starts to get dark and wintery.

LOTD ~ Eat Sugar

I've eaten enough in past week.

But the name for this look I got from Hi-Fi Cosmetics' Sugar and Eat Me, Drink Me eyeshadows. I paired the two with dark brown from Wet'n'Wild's Vanity palette.

On lips I have Candy Pink lipstick by Oriflame.

I was sweating when I took these pics and I had just finished getting my make up done. Even if I like summer this 25C+ weather for weeks is getting quite tiring. I know it's not as much as in some places around the world but when in winter it's -25C and in summer closer to 30C you'd really want some mid-temperature instead of either freezing or melting. My body has never been ok with warm weather either so I'm constantly annoyed and my body isn't working properly.

2x holiday LOTDs

These two looks are from last week when my boyfriend was here. It has been really warm here for some weeks now (between 25C and 30C most of the days) which means I've resorted to mainly nudes. At Tuska Open Air Metal Festival I didn't wear any foundation, only some colour on my eyes.

Anyway few looks where I actually wore something more than waterproof mascara.

This look was done completely with Wet'n'Wild's Vanity palette.

And this next one is done with purples and golds from Inglot.

I've been mostly using Vanity palette from Wet'n'Wild since it has neutral colours on my holiday. But my holiday continues this week and tomorrow I am taking my daughter to water park and on Friday I meet up with a friend.

LOTD ~ Desire

Today's look was inspired by Inna's smoky eyes and I did it completely with Wet'n'Wild's Lust palette. I really like myself how the make up turned out since it was really fast to do and required only few colours.

Sorry that some pictures are really blurry but it isn't too light outside today and my hand isn't too steady.

For lips I used few different Oriflame lipsticks and one lipgloss (all pink). Nails have few layers of Mavala's Rose Shell nail polish on.

My holiday started yesterday and soon I head out to get my boyfriend from airport. I might be quiet for the next week.

Hope you all have a great weekend and next week and I will get back to you after Tuska Open Air Metal Festival next weekend - if not before!

LOTD ~ Lust

I bought Wet'n'Wild's Lust and Vanity palettes yesterday and since I had quite neutral look on Wednesday I wanted to try Lust today to get some more colour. I used only the matte colours (except shimmery white on browbone) and this is what I came up with.

Tomorrow I might try the Vanity palette. I really love matte eyeshadows now so sorry to everyone who doesn't like them.

I have last day of work before holiday tomorrow so I might go even more quiet after that since my boyfriend comes over on Saturday and on Thursday friends from Iceland fly here and then there's Tuska Open Air Metal Festival next weekend.
