Heavenly Naturals Earth Child + Believe FOTD

Actually I took these photos yesterday but as I redid this look today, I decided that I could use them still. I have been searching for a brown with green shimmer for a while. I had ordered Lime Crime's Dragon Scales but the colour just clashed with my skin. Then when I found Heavenly Naturals, I discovered Earth Child. It's a copper-shaded brown with lovely mint green shimmer. I also happened to have Heavenly Naturals' eyeshadow in Believe which is the actual same colour as the green shimmer in Earth Child. So of course I had to use them together.

Earth Child + Believe FOTD

Purely Cosmetics Skin Smoothing Foundation
Meow Cosmetics Top Cat Finishing Powder (over foundation)
Purely Cosmetics Blush in Blushing
Too Faced Shadow Insurance (as a primer on upper lids)
Heavenly Naturals eyeshadow in Earth Child (all over upper lids)
Heavenly Naturals eyeshadow in Believe (inner corners of eyes)
Lumiere Cosmetics eyeshadow in Butter Cream (as a highlighter below brow)
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack (upper lashline)
Dior Diorshow Waterproof mascara in Black
MAC lipglass in Possum Nose Pink (from LE Dame Edna collection)

I really like the green shimmer in Earth Child. The highlighter also has a hint of green in it. I didn't even remember I had a shade like Butter Cream but it just magically reappeared when I was doing this look. Also note how the copper in Earth Child makes my eyes appear bluer. Blue-eyed babes take note: copper makes blues pop.

Here you can see the lovely shimmer Earth Child has. It matches 100% with Believe. It's fun because when I look at my eyes on the mirror, you can't see where Believe ends and Earth Child begins; the green shade just glides into the copper.

I'm very pleased with this look. I bought the cutest earrings ever! You can barely see them but they have Russian matryoshka dolls in them. They are made by Green Papaya. The company uses recycled and upcycled materials. These earrings of mine were made of a fabric that had matryoshka print in it.
I had a hard time deciding what shade of lipstick to wear with this look. I thought about wearing something orange but it would have been too matchy-matchy. So I settled with Possum Nose Pink which isn't a pink pink but rather a mix of fuchsia and warm red.

Oh, I also had to take a picture of my hand. I have a protective tape over the stiches but it's starting to peel off. As you can see, my wrist is pretty bruised.

Okay, I know my hand looks disgusting but what do you think of the look?

Glamour Doll Eyes Fabulous Glam Girl FOTD

Because Vanessa from Glamour Doll Eyes turns 25 tomorrow and because she's having a sale on her webstore, I decided to showcase more of Glamour Doll Eyes gorgeousness.

Of course when I was taking the pictures, I only managed to get three and then I lost the light. It seems that it's going to rain and the clouds just blocked all the light I had. I don't like taking pictures indoors because the light is way too yellow and it distorts the colours completely.

Glam Girl is a very vibrant and strong purple with a little shimmer. This may not surprise anyone but I love this purple!
Fabulous! is an almost matte teal.
Sterling Glitz is a diamond glitter. It looks white in the baggie but you don't get much colour. Instead you get this beautiful diamond glimmer on your lids.
Pinky Swear is a bright, shimmery pink.

I usually hate when people combine blue with purple (I know, I know, I have done it myself) but last night I woke in middle of the night (I ain't kidding you) and decided that I had to try Glam Girl with Fabulous!, no matter what.

Fabulous Glam Girl FOTD

Purely Cosmetics Skin Smoothing Foundation
Meow Cosmetics Top Cat Finishing Powder (over foundation)
Too Faced Shadow Insurance (as a primer on upper lids)
Glamour Doll Eyes eyeshadow in Pinky Swear (as a blusher on cheeks)
Glamour Doll Eyes eyeshadow in Fabulous! (all over upper lids up to the crease)
Glamour Doll Eyes eyeshadow in Glam Girl (outer vee and crease)
Glamour Doll Eyes eyeshadow in Sterling Glitz (over Glam Girl and Fabulous!)
Aromaleigh eyeshadow in Petunia (as a highlighter below brows)
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack (as a liner on upper lashline)
Fyrinnae eyeshadow in Wicked (patted wet over eyeliner)
Dior Diorshow mascara in Black
Fyrinnae Lip Lustre in Glitter Kittiez

When I lined my eyes with Blacktrack, I was pleased with the results but it sort of looked flat. I looked around and saw a jar of Fyrinnae's Wicked and I decided to pat it wet over the line I had drawn. It looks a bit like raven or crow feathers, the shine they have. Also, Wicked pairs up nicely with Glam Girl and Fabulous! because it's a strong purple with teal shimmer. I also used Petunia just below brows but only on the inner part and partly blended it on Glam Girl. I chose Petunia because it's an off-white with pinkish sheen.

I used Sterling Glitz to blend in the colours but also to add a bit of sparkle. I love the result, it softens the look up a bit. The sparkles catch the light beautifully, it really looks like I have diamond dust sprinkled across my lids.

Unfortunately, this was the only full face photo I managed to take before the clouds rolled in the sky. Bleurgh. Pinky Swear makes a great blush. I love the overall look, I'm a bit surprised how soft I look with such strong colours.

Because my eyes were so strong and colourful, I lightly patted on Glitter Kittiez. The colour is much stronger if you apply it more but I wanted to have that 'bitten' look.

As I posted before, Glamour Doll Eyes is having a sale with samples 50% off so this is a great opportunity to try some new colours out!

Sorry I couldn't take better photos but I can't change the weather :(

What do you think of the look?

Also, if you buy 2 full sizes, you get 1 free (up to 4 free jars). So, when you buy 2 full sizes, write the name of the free jar of your choice in to the comments field, don't put it in your cart.

Glamour Doll Eyes Aqua FOTD

A while back I ordered some samples from Gamour Doll Eyes, mostly because my dear friend Decorative Diva was praising them. And if you're her reader, you know that she's very particular about this things. I have already done some looks with my samples but failed to post them so here it goes!

First, a few words about the shades I used. Disco White is a white with aqua sparkle. I know, it sounds a bit scary but I can assure you that the colour is in no way garish. The sparkle is very subtle. I would recommend doing your eyemakeup before putting on your foundation, though. Otherwise you'll have a disco under your eyes. Coral Reef is greenish blue colour. It looks exactly like the water on nature documentaries when they film coral reefs so the name is spot on. Shamrock is a vivid green. It's very bright and lovely.


Purely Cosmetics Skin Smoothing Foundation
Purely Cosmetics Silk & Pearl Primer (as finishing powder)
Meow Cosmetics Crystalline Cat Glow Powder in Quartz (on cheekbones)
Purely Cosmetics Blush in Blushing
Too Faced Shadow Insurance (as a primer on upper lids)
Glamour Doll Eyes eyeshadow in Disco White (all over upper lid)
Glamour Doll Eyes eyeshadow in Coral Reef (2/3 of upper lid)
Glamour Doll Eyes eyeshadow in Shamrock (outer vee and crease)
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack (upper lashline)
Dior Diorshow Waterproof mascara in Black
MAC Dazzleglass in Goldyrocks

Because Shamrock is such a strong green, I had to apply it very gently because i didn't want the contrast with it and Coral Reef to be too sharp. So I did a lot of blending and here it doesn't look as vibrant as it can be. But I can assure you, it's very vibrant!

I'm not happy with this picture. It looks like I have lined my eyes only on the middle of my upper lid. The photographer should be fired! :D I love Coral Reef but I didn't remember I had another blueish Glamour Doll Eyes colour called Fantabulous! which, in retrospect, could have worked better than Coral Reef. Well, you live and you learn.
I used Disco White all over upper lid before using the other colours. You can't see it in this photo but the sparkle from Disco White is visible underneath and it gives a gorgeous glimmer.
I wish I had a better camera because when I compare these photos to what I see in the mirror, these pics don't do these lovely colours any justice.

After using such strong colours on my eyes, I wanted to use something lighter on lips. I chose Goldyrocks because there's not a lot of colour but just enough of golden sparkle.

I really like Glamour Doll Eyes. Their colours are very vibrant and fun. Also, if you buy samples and end up getting your sample colour later as a full size, the price of the sample will be deducted from the full size price. Neat, huh? I like their customer service, Vanessa (the owner) is such a sweetie and willing to help if you have problems (I accidentally screwed up my order and e-mailed her and she fixed it immediately). They also have a gorgeous purple eyeshadow called Glam Girl (which I love) and a lovely pink called Pinky Swear. I have added their site to my links so if you're interested, do go and have a look and order some lovely samples!

Have you tried Glamour Doll Eyes? if not, are you going to? And what do you think about this look?

Heavenly Naturals Dark Purple FOTD

I accidentally slit my wrist while cutting bread two days ago which morbidly enough gave me an inspiration to do a darker, almost gothic purple look. My hand is still aching (it got stiched up) so doing makeup at the moment is a bit of a challenge. I hope you understand the situation and ignore any problems I might have had with blending.

Dark Purple FOTD

Purely Cosmetics Skin Smoothing Foundation (custom blended with 2 parts of Fair Maiden and 1 part of Peaches N Cream)
Meow Cosmetics Crystalline Cat Glow Powder in Quartz (as a higlighter on cheekbones and temples)
Purely Cosmetics Blush in Blushing
Too Faced Shadow Insurance (as a primer on upper lids)
Heavenly Naturals eyeshadow in Romantic Notion (all over upper lid)
Heavenly Naturals eyeshadow in Persuasion (outer vee and crease)
Heavenly Naturals eyeshadow in Cupcake (to blend out Persuasion and Romantic Notion)
Fyrinnae eyeshadow in Sakura (as a highlighter under brows)
Heavenly Naturals eyeshadow in Diva (wetlined on upper and lower lashlines)
Dior Diorshow Waterproof mascara in Black
MAC lipstick in A Rose Romance

I think Diva is a kick-ass purple and makes a great liner! I love it as an eyeshadow, too. Persuasion is a bit brownish purple which is why I decided to use a pretty pink like Cupcake to blend it with Romantic Notion which is a mauveish sort of purple. I didn't want to go too gothic so Cupcake balanced the look perfectly. Fyrinnae's Sakura is white with purplepink irisdecence to it. I blend it a bit with my fingers because it's a glowing white and I wanted to blend it so that it would look like I had a white line below my brows.

I think this is great photographic evidence on how purple really brings out the green in my eyes. I was going to line my eyes with black but instead went for purple which I think works better than black would here.

If you like Orgasm blush from Nars but find it a bit too gritty and glittery then try Purely Cosmetics' Blushing blush. It's a great dupe and looks way more glowy than Orgasm does. I have Orgasm in Multiple (haha) and I have a love/hate relationship with it. The colour is great but the glitter is a bit too much. I also adore Purely Cosmetics' Skin Smoothing Foundation. I use it when I want my skin to look flawless without a concealer.

I think Heavenly Naturals have great eyeshadows. They aren't as crazy as Fyrinnae's but they are of really good quality and the colours are lovely and very pigmented. I already have several full sized eyeshadows and I've been extremely happy with them.

I think I mentioned MAC's A Rose Romance lipstick in my last post. I love the formula and I really like how it looks on my lips. It's a limited edition colour as far as I know so if you're interested, you might want to get it ASAP.

How do you like my darker look?

Sunny and Bright FOTD

Today was rainy and the wind almost took my hair off. But since I went to have Mother's Day lunch a day early and because my beloved best friend Jenni got proposed to her boyfriend, I decided to go against all odds and create a bright look. So I grabbed Lime Crime's Circus Girl which is a bright super-yellow shade. I just love it. I haven't been a fan of yellows but I think that's because drugstore yellows are so watered down. This is REAL YELLOW. I also used an orange shade (Fyrinnae's Chlorophyll) and sweet pink (Lime Crime' Poodle Pink).

Sunny and Bright FOTD

Meow Cosmetics Pampered Puss Foundation in Inquisitive Himalayan (two layers)
Meow Cosmetics Concealer in Inquisitive Chausie (on blemishes)
Meow Cosmetics Crystalline Cat Glow Powder in Quartz (on cheekbones, brows, nose and chin)
FaceFront Cosmetics Cheek Up Blush in Buenos Aires
Too Faced Shadow Insurance (as a primer on upper lids)
Lime Crime eyeshadow in Circus Girl (all over upper lids)
Fyrinnae eyeshadow in Chlorophyll (outer vee and crease)
Lime Crime eyeshadow in Poodle Pink (lower lids)
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack (uppe lashline)
Dior Diorshow Waterproof mascara in Black
Fyrinnae Lip Lustre in Visual Kei

I love these colours together! I think they compliment my eyes, although I say it myself. If you have greenish eyes, Circus Girl is definitely worth a go. As you can see in this photo, my allergies are causing my eyes to water :(

I love how nicely Circus Girl and Chlorophyll blend in together. They both have a gorgeous sheen to them. Even my dad (who knows nothing about makeup and usually just shrugs his shoulders when I ask for his opinion) commented how lovely my eyes looked.

Oooh, pouty :P Visual Kei is such a bright pink. I'm such a fan of Fyrinnae's Lip Lustres. Although I have made some very bad colour choices (I bought some very cool lavender shades that made me look beyond dead), the formula is very good. I have chapped lips and Lip Lustre on its own keep my puckers soft and moisturized.

Look at my eyes, don't those eyeshadows just make them sparkle? This photo actually shows that I have a difficult bone structure. I've started to work on how I can create illusions with makeup to sculpt it a bit. I usually take pictures of the left side of my face because I've noticed that it's clearly my better side. The things you notice when you post pictures of your face on near-regular intervals :P

I managed to grab a lippie from MAC's A Rose Romance Collection (which on sale in Finland NOW). I chose the shade A Rose Romance. It's the sort of cool pink that looks very flattering on many girls, I think. I'm going to post some pics soon.

Congrats on Jenni and Santtu getting engaged! Guess who's going to be the makeup artist for the wedding... ;)

What do you think of this brighter look? Do you use yellow eyeshadows?

Something Wicked This Way Comes FOTD

Today I went to celebrate my two nephews' birthdays. I was going to do a soft look with pink and lavender and such but then I decided to go in the exact opposite direction. I wanted to do something couture-ish. Yesterday the mail man brought me MAC's Goldyrocks dazzleglass I had bought in eBay so I wanted to incorporate that in my look, too.

My look turned out quite fierce so I decided to name it 'Something wicked this way comes'. The look is a bit Egyptian but without the golden tanned skin so I couldn't use that theme.

Something Wicked This Way Comes FOTD

Meow Cosmetics Pampered Puss Foundation in Inquisitive Himalayan (two layers)

Meow Cosmetics Concealer in Inquisitive Chausie (to cover up blemishes)

Meow Cosmetics Top Cat Finishing Powder (as a finishing powder all over face)

Meow Cosmetics Lush Blush in Kiss-and-Tell

Meow Cosmetics Crystalline Cat Glow Powder in Quartz (on cheekbones, nose, upper lip and chin)

Too Faced Shadow Insurance (as a primer on upper lids)

Lime Crime eyeshadow in Nymph (all over upper eyelid, up to brows)

Heavenly Naturals eyeshadow in Fairytale (between the 'wings')

MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack (as a liner on upper and lower lashline)

Dior Diorshow Waterproof mascara in Black

MAC Dazzleglass in Goldyrocks

So I lined my upper lid so that instead of following the actual lashline until the end, I draw a wing upwards. Then I did the same with lower lashline. I filled the space between these two lines with Fairytale. I chose Fairytale because although Nymph looks like golden off-white, it has a greenish shimmer to it.

Here you can see the exquisite shimmer of Nymph. I took this photo inside (the one above was taken out in sunlight) so you could see how lovely and satiny Nymph looks. You can also see the golden and green shimmer I was talking about.

Yeah, I know it's a strong look for kids' birthday party but I've noticed that children aren't as easily intimidated by strong makeup (ok, maybe the very extreme and scary ones that are used for theatre and such). No one asked me questions, like "why have you painted your face like that?" or anything. And no one started crying :D

I wish I had put some Shadow Insurance under Fairytale but I completely forgot because I haven't done anything like this ever. So next time I have to remember that. I think this look is totally cool and depending on what kind of colour you're wearing between the lines, you can transform this from cool to dramatic. I'm thinking about trying this with very vibrant purple for a night out clubbing.

BTW, Goldyrocks is a lovely colour. The problem with Dazzleglasses is that they are extremely painful to photograph: the shimmer and sparkle just doesn't show up. Goldyrocks looks lemony golden in the tube but on lips you can only see the sparkle. I like it still :) Goldyrocks is a limited edition shade so if you're interested, I'd say you should grab it sooner rather than later.

So what do you think?

The She Space FOTD

Just a short post before I'm off to work.

Yesterday I realized that I haven't yet posted a look using The She Space samples I ordered - yet I made a post about the grab bag thing. Silly me. So I went ahead and swatched my samples and picked four colours I wanted to use together. The colours I chose were Funky Chicken, Living in Motion, Grooving Guppy and After the Kiss.

These are my descriptions of the TSS shades mentioned:

Funky Chicken: near matte light yellow.
Living in Motion: frosty mint green.
Grooving Guppy: shimmering aqua.
After the Kiss: matte lavender.

The She Space FOTD

Meow Cosmetics Top Cat Finishing Powder (as a primer and as a finishing powder)
Meow Cosmetics Pampered Puss Foundation in Inquisitive Himalayan (two layers)
Meow Cosmetics Concealer in Inquisitive Chausie
FaceFront Cosmetics Cheek Up Blush in Buenos Aires
Too Faced Shadow Insurance (as a primer on upper lids)
The She Space eyeshadow in Funky Chicken (on 1/3 of the inner upper lid plus inner corner)
The She Space eyeshadow in Living in Motion (2/3 of the upper lid)
The She Space eyeshadow in Grooving Guppy (outer vee and crease)
The She Space eyeshadow in After the Kiss (lower lashline)
Fyrinnae eyeshadow in Shinkirou (as a higlighter below brows)
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack (upper lashline)
Dior Diorshow Waterproof mascara in Black
MAC lip tint in Popster (from Hello Kitty Collection)

I really like how the colours are easy to blend. Living in Motion and Grooving Guppy go together like best friends. The main grief is that the colours are quite hard to build up because they aren't all quite vibrant enough. For example, you can barely see After the Kiss on my lower lashline and I did a pretty heavy handed job there.

And this is TSS at it's best. The colours blend well even without any blending skills.

I really like Grooving Guppy. It's the most vibrant colour of these four, followed by Living in Motion. I usually don't wear aqua but this shade was too cute to pass! The funny thing about this photo is that it looks like the yellow and green shades I've used match my eyes! *lol*

As you can see, I'm pleased with the look. I took these pics just after six in the morning so I may look a bit tired!

I hate to admit this but I really love Facefront's Buenos Aires blush. I don't like FaceFront as a company but they do come up with gems like this blush. I haven't been able to found a dupe. The blush looks very frightening on the jar (screaming pinkish peach with gold shimmer) but on cheeks it's just radiant.

The She Space has some gems, too, but the problem is inconsistency. Some of the colours barely show up on my skin (and I'm basically as white as a sheet) and some are really great. Some of the makeup companies I order from have better consistency and I have no problems with buying full sizes without sampling (like Aromaleigh, Fyrinnae, Heavenly Naturals) but The She Space makes me a bit nervous. Their shipping takes long and when I got 20 samples, 7 of them were just no good in terms of vibrancy. That's an alarming ratio. I know, I know, I just bought a grab bag from them but I consider that as giving The she Space another opportunity to prove themselves to me. If it doesn't work out, I may not order again, not even samples.

Have you tried any pigments from The She Space? What do you think about them? And what do you think about my look? :)

When you don't know what is coming...

The She Space is having a grab bag deal of their limited edition collections. Although I was initially disappointed with The She Space, I found myself wearing their 'Crack the Whip' eyeshadow four times in two weeks.

So I'm now waiting for my 5 piece Storypeople grab bag. I chose Storypeople because the colours looked very vibrant and summery. No beiges and moody greens/purples for me this time, no sirree.

Of course I don't know what I'm getting nor can I choose the colours but I decided to jot down the colours I would like to have. When I get the grab bag, I'll let you know if any of my wishes came true.

-Necessary Laughter: Sunset lemon with a bronze halo
-Vampires Tap Dancing: Intense melon berry with a bit of hot pink
-Leprechaun Scandal: Lemon lime green pearl
-Feathers and Crayons: Bold aqua with hints of turquoise
-Unicorns in Love: Vivid metallic purple berry shimmer

Now we just have to wait.

If you're interested in this grab bag deal, just click here:

Heavenly Naturals: Cupcake + Fairytale +Coutour FOTD

I noticed how I've done lighter looks a lot lately. The reason for this is that I'm very allergic to birch pollen and now it's like birch pollen party extravaganza going on. So I do lighter looks because most of the time my eye makeup starts running after half an hour.

I did my look using Heavenly Naturals, partly because I already did swatches and review and wanted to show how the colours look on me. I chose Cupcake, Fairytale and Coutour because I wanted to do something sweet but with a little twist.

Cupcake +Fairytale + Coutour FOTD

Meow Cosmetics Pampered Puss foundation in Inquisitive Himalayan
Meow Cosmetics concealer in Inquisitive Chausie
Meow Cosmetics Top Cat finishing powder (as a primer AND as a finishing powder)
Fyrinnae Blush in Enrapture
Too Faced Shadow Insurance (as a primer on upper lids)
Heavenly Naturals eyeshadow in Cupcake (inner half of upper lid)
Heavenly Naturals eyeshadow in Fairytale (outer half of upper lid, outer vee and crease)
Heavenly Naturals eyeshadow in Coutour (lower lash line)
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack (upper lashline)
Dior Diorshow Waterproof mascara in Black
Fyrinnae Lip Lustre in Visual Kei

I love Fairytale. It's very layerable colour and such a pretty green. I can't wait to use it wet as I'm almost positive that it will look unbelievably gorgeous. Coutour is a lovely golden colour (you can barely see it here but it gives a nice glow), very usable although it looks very strong in the swatches.

Visual kei is a lovely pink lippie, I love it.

Sorry for the short post, I need to go for a walk! I hope you like the look (although my eyes look a bit puffy) :)

Heavenly Naturals: swatches and a review

After reading xsparkage's glowing review about Heavenly Naturals I decided to have a go at them myself. Heavenly Naturals sell a variety of beauty products but I've concentrated on eyeshadows.
I really like the smoothness of the pigments. Some of them are more sheer than others but overall I'm not diappointed so far. For those who don't like shimmer, there are several matte shadows to choose from. The mattes blend easily and there was no clumping like there sometimes is with matte pigments.
Well, you won't be disappointed with Heavenly Naturals' range of shades! Ok, there are not as many to choose from as there is with Fyrinnae or Aromaleigh but I dare you to say that you can't find anything you would like. There are reds, pinks, aquas, purples, oranges, yellows, nudes, whites, blacks... Something for everyone.
Shipping costs

As someone who doesn't live in the US, I always look at the shipping costs. That's partially why Fyrinnae has become such a staple for me. Heavenly Naturals offer international shipping at very affordable prices. I hate companies that charge me $15 for shipping and when that package arrives, I notice that the actual cost of shipping has been $3-$5. Heavenly Naturals doesn't charge you outrageous prices for putting the stuff on an envelope. The shipping costs were somewhere around $3.
Customer Service

I had a problem with my order. I received a wrong eyeshadow due to a glitch on the website. I e-mailed René and received an answer in two days. The problem was fixed instantly and with friendliness. They must be a bit swamped with orders after xsparkage's posting so I understand why I had to wait for two days. Plus that's not bad. There are companies that haven't answered me until I started getting really angry (I'm looking at you FaceFront).
Okay, I'm such a language police and there are a lot of spelling mistakes. Also, individual samples are only available with certain colours, otherwise you have to do a package deal (which is not entirely bad). But mostly you can find the stuff you're looking for. I hope René will find the time to list the shadows according to colours because that would be very helpful.
In all, I give Heavenly Naturals an excellent grade. One has to remember that they are a small company and that brings some limitations. But the key points (product quality, shipping costs and customer service) were all right on.
I advice you to order samples first and then go for full sizes.
Finally, some swatches of the colours I have :) (I've used Too Faced Shadow Insurance as primer)

1st row from the top (from left to right): Cupcake, Baby Doll, Demure, Sacrifice
2nd row (from left to right): Daddy's Girl, Sleeping Beauty, Persuasion, Diva
3rd row (from left to right): Lemy-Lime, Fairytale, Panic, Fantasy
This pic was taken outside in direct sunlight. The shimmer is way more sparkly in direct sunlight, it's exquisite!

Same colours inside in sunlight. The difference in shimmer is noticeable when compared to the photo taken outside.

1st row (from left to right): Vanilla Crush, Bashful, Chocolate Brown
2nd row (from left to right): Fierce, Coutour, Ransom
This was also taken outside in direct sunlight. Look at all the shimmery goodness!

Same colours, picture taken inside in sunlight.

Is there some colours that I think are a must-have? Yes. If you love purples, you need Diva. Dady's Girl is lovely too but if you have MAC's Stars N' Rockets, it's almost a dupe. If you are a sucker for greens then I'd recommend getting Fairytale because it's a gorgeous golden green. For nude lovers, Bashful is a good choice. If pink is more your cup of tea, Cupcake should be on your list. If you want something out of the ordinary, check out Coutour and Ransom.
I really love Heavenly Naturals' mattes. Demure is almost like MAC's Yogurt,Vanilla Crush is a lovely off-white shade and Chocolate Brown is, well, chocolate brown :)
Heavenly Naturals has a spring collection called Spring Dollface. Vanilla Crush, Demure, Chocolate Brown, Bashful, Baby Doll and Fairytale are all from that collection.
So what do you think? Will you be sampling Heavenly Naturals?

Photographic evidence that I can be a real girl too... :)

Okay, I didn't have time to post my May Day's Eve look on Thursday. May Day's Eve (and May Day) are a cause of a big celebration here. It's the time for students and workers to celebrate and usually dress up in silly costumes (like bumblebees). Balloons are THE thing, too. And champagne/sparkling wine. We had our own May Day's Eve party at our place. We had invited a few friends to come over for a couple of drinks. I didn't want to dress up as a bumblebee (those stripes do nothing for my hips) but I wanted to use bright colours and my new skirt.

For eyes I used Heavenly Naturals. Baby Doll on inner corners, Daddy's Girl in the middle, Diva in the outer vee and crease and I lined the bottom lash line with Fantasy. It looked very fresh (sorry I don't have better pictures) and I was really happy with the look in general.

This is what you have been waiting for, right? A picture of me wearing THE skirt. I got so many compliments at work (yes, I had worn it the previous day at work) and people were thinking that it had been especially designed for me. I could almost feel my head getting bigger :D

So there you have it!
