Notice about my pictures

Hey guys, just wanted quickly to say that my camera is really old, like way old. It's about 7 - 8 years old and due to that fact, it's not the best on picking up colours. That's why my red/pink always is off, my bright colours doesn't appear that bright and my darks don't seem so dark.

I'm working on getting a new camera, but I have to make some money before I can go out and make a purchase. I also want to make sure I'm getting the best of all cameras for the price, so bear with me.

Makeup: Piinksparkles everyday smokey eye

Heya to heyo people! Do you know Piinksparkles on YouTube? I have written about her in a previous post, she is definitely one of my favorite beauty gurus on YouTube, she's super fun, nice, beautiful and inspiring! Today I followed her everyday smokey tutorial. 

There's the video if you're interested, I definitely recommend checking her out.

(It kind of looks like I have no pupils because of the lighting :D)

Mine didn't turn out as smokey as Sam's but it's still a hundred times smokier than what I usually wear ;)
(I also think it got washed out a little on the picture because of the light, more smokey in real life.)

 I really love this eye look because usually I look like a dork when I wear smokey eyes but I actually like this on me!

 Ciao sweethearts, have an awesome day!

Makeup: Spring trend 2012

Hi guys. Yesterday I googled "spring makeup trends 2012" and I found pictures like this:

These looks are, basically, just one bright colour swept over the entire lid and brought up a little over the crease and blended out. Then a nice black eyeliner is added to the upper lid, you can make it thin or thick, whatever you like, but I prefer a little bit thick.

 So today I decided to go for it. I thought it to be kind of a dare because I wanted to use my new pigment from Collection 2000 in the colour Tinkerbell, a bright green that, to be honest, comes out to look very teal and blue. Anyway, I felt like it was a dare because I was afraid that it would turn out kind of like this:

I'm sure that was totally rad in the 80's, but not really my style. Luckily, it didn't and I really liked the look. I'll definitely play more with this in the spring and upcoming summer using bold and bright colours.

What do like for spring and summer? Isn't this a little bold for such a light season?

Makeup: Mocha choc (Collection 2000 trio)

Hi guys, how r you? I just received my order of 25 pairs of earrings fish hooks so I can make some cute earrings. More about that when they're all nice and done, I'll show you then :)
Today I just want to show you my make-up today. Last Friday I went shopping with my friend and they had an awesome Collection 2000 sale. I bought a little different stuff, I generally like their products. Today I used one of the palettes, the Mocha Choc one. 

The pink in the middle didn't turn out as pink on the picture as in real life.

Eyes and lips. As you can see the pink doesn't really kick in  and turns out to look more like a silvery shadow. I also found it chalky .

So, what are you up to on the wonderful.. Cloudy relatively cold day?

Makeup: Easy purple

Hi guys, todays is very exciting because I got my glasses back from the optician, yaaay now I can see!
Unfortunately I didn't snap a picture with them on but it'll come. Today I went for an easy light purple look, I really like how it turned out.

Added nice pink lips to freshen it up a bit.

It's raining outside.. Alot.. Not adding very much to the begging spring-feeling I had.

Rainy hugs, Elk.
