REVIEW: Trend It Up Dazzling Dust Eyeliner 040

Hey loves <3

Recently I've been really using eyeliners a lot and loving the looks with them. Last time I was in Drogerie Markt I decided to buy the eyeliner from Trend it Up's limited edition called Dazzling dust.


There were four different colours in this collection but this one really caught my eye because it was something special and I thought it's gonna suit my green eyes. 


I got it in shade 040, which is sheer grey with green/blue glitter in it, depending on the light. It dries quickly and stays in place all day.


The brush I find ok, nothing special and I wish it would be a little more thick, but anyway it makes the application easy.


It costs around 4€ and if you can still find it in stores (since it was limited edition) I would recommend it to you, if you like something different and unique.

Here's how it looks on me:



Hope you enjoyed, let me know if you like it!

Best,
Katja

Advice from makeup artist – how to clean you beauty items efficiently

Hey guys!

Today I have a bit different post for you, an advice from a makeup artist! How exciting :)

If your beauty tools are in a bad condition and you don’t clean them often, then you are in for an unpleasant surprise. Makeup gadgets, especially those which are used for the application of foundation or concealer or any other liquid or cream-based makeup tend to get dirty all the time because bacteria are very easily transferred in a liquid environment. This can be terrible for your skin and can lead to irritation and acne problems. 

This is why, as a person who has experience in this area, I recommend you to clean your tools every week or at least once every two weeks in the worst case. I promise you that this will definitely affect your makeup routine in a positive way. The truth is that there is no reason to avoid cleaning your makeup tools more regularly. If you take care of your beauty supplies, you will be able to use them longer and this way you will make a great investment out of them.

Clean your brushes

The best way to get rid of the dirt on your makeup brushes is to use warm water and baby shampoo. Now, tell me that this is not a non-harmful and easy way to clean your makeup tools. Start by wetting your brush under running lukewarm water. Be careful not to wet the place where the handle meets the head. If you wet it, you might wash off some of the glue that actually holds the bristles together. Once the brush is wet you can pour a drop of the shampoo in your palm and use a swirling motion to get the shampoo between the bristles of the brush. Once you think that the dirt and oils have come off the brush, rinse your makeup tool under a running lukewarm water again. Squeeze all of the moisture and if the water which comes off is still not clear repeat the step with the baby shampoo.

When you are sure that your brush is properly cleaned, use a clean cloth or a paper towel to dry the bristles of your brush and restore its shape. Lay your wet brushes on a cloth and let them air dry and they should be ready for use in the morning.

The trick for your makeup sponge

Did you know that a simple bar soap actually makes wonders for the tough stains on your makeup sponge? Just rub the sponge directly into the bar soap and all of the dirt will be stripped off and your sponge will be properly cleaned in an instant. Rinse it with a lukewarm water and squeeze out the moisture. Let the sponge air dry overnight and you will be ready to blend your makeup to perfection.

Don’t forget the tweezers and the pencil sharpener

These beauty tools are often neglected but they actually are full with germs and you should clean them regularly, too. Don’t forget to disinfect your tweezers and pencil sharpener to avoid the bacteria that might stick to them. Use a cotton ball dampened with a rubbing alcohol and rub your beauty tools. This way you can be sure that your beauty gadgets are properly disinfected and ready to be used again.

Spending a fortune on your makeup brushes and sponges is not enough. If you want to have the perfect application and healthy skin, you should take good care for your tools. This means that you should stick to the regular cleaning routine. I promise you that soon this will become like a habit. I guarantee you that both the condition of your skin and the look of your makeup will improve tremendously if you maintain the clean look of your makeup brushes and sponges. 

And we came to the end guys, I hope you enjoyed and learned something new and important ;)

Kisses,
Katja

BeautyBigBang Vibration Makeup Brush*

Hello everyone! :)

I had an opportunity again to work with BeautyBigBang.They stock all the sold out crazes but everything is crazy affordable. Their prices are in dollars but they ship internationally and regularly restock their sold out items. They sell a a variety of beauty products, everything from hair and makeup to nails. This time I chose one trendy item.

.
It's a vibration makeup brush. It's easy to use and works with batteries which are not included.



I find it very interesting and such a unique concept. I've seen reviews about this kind of brushes and always been intrigued.


You get a "holder" for the brush head and 4 different brush heads for different purposes for example applying foundation, blush, etc.

I mainly used it for applying foundation. I have to say it was tricky at first, but then when I figured it out, it was kind of nice. It does take some time to apply the foundation evenly, without streaks, but it's very easy to use. The brush heads are also very soft.



All in all it's an interesting product and if you're intrigued you should definitely try it. BeautyBigBang has it on sale currently for 12,97€.

The delivery takes up to 4 weeks, depending on where you live. They do offer Paypal as a payment method plus free shipping worldwide. 

I do have a 10% off code for you guys, it's KATJA10, if you want to get even more discount ;)


Hope you enjoyed!

REVIEW: Balea Tuchmaske "Cool Melon"

Hello everyone!

Recently (in the past months) I've been really obsessed with sheet masks. I tried many and now I decided to post a review for every sheet mask I will try, because let's be honest, some are better than others. 

Today I'm sharing with you my opinion on the Balea sheet mask called Cool Melon. Balea came out with sheet masks fairly recently and they come in three versions - Cool Melon, Sweet Mango and Fancy Pomegranate. I tried the other two as well before.


It's suitable for every skin type. Costs 0,99€ which is very affordable and a cheapest sheet mask I've ever tried.  Also love the cute packaging.


Contains different extracts and it's suppose to make skin soft and smooth with a hydration boost. You apply it on clean skin and leave it on for 10 minutes. Loved the scent of this mask as it reminded me of chewing gum, but it was very strong.

I have to say the sheet mask (and the other two as well) lacks moisture, it seems too dry and it's also a little bit big for my face, I couldn't place it properly because it was moving all the time (also maybe because it's not moist enough so it doesnt really "stick" to your skin well).

Overall, for the price of 0,99€ these are nice. I liked the effect - hydrated my skin really great!

Have you tried Balea sheet masks before?
Kisses,
Katja
