Beauti-fall: Easy striped nails

Hey yo to the ey-o! I'm here with another nail-design for the fabulous season of fall! (even thought it's almost practically over)

So this nail design is really good for any nail length  Also it's really versatile, use your favorite colours of fall to mix something good together! Besides, I got a lot of compliments on this easy nail design, maybe you'll get lucky too ;)
This hereby terminates my beauti-fall series for this year, it might or might not come back next year, we'll see.

Beauti-fall: Doin' Sedona

Hey you cool guys. So one of my birthday gifts was an awesome collection of all kinds of make-up and some of that make-up was two loose pigments from youngblood. (See them in my birthday haul)
Therefore, today I decided to spice up my neutral eye with these pigments. The most obvious colour is Sedona, a dark reddish pigment that I simply love in this look!

I do also realize that I look terribly angry in this photo - I am not. I was trying to do my "cool" face, which I after today discovered does not exist ;)
How do you spice up your everyday neutral eye?...

Beauti-fall: Bondage nails (!?)

Hello you beasts! I was in the mood to try something new and fun, so I decided to do the so called "braided nails" which is supposed to come out like this: 


But of course, since it's me - I failed. So in all of my despair I decided to make some extra lines and add some more colours. This is how it turned out:

So, not exactly braided nails like they were supposed to look, but still something along those lines. To me it kind of looks like bondage, not in a dirty way though ;) I still think that with the colours I used this is a very nice fall nail-look.
Have a great day!

Beauti-fall: Intense going out look!

Hey guys. Yesterday I was bored, so I decided to play around with some loose pigments my friend gave me and I hadn't had a chance to use yet. This is what happened:

Not edited (other than cropped). The yellow lighting from my lamp washed out the intensity of the eyeshadow, but it softened up the skin, made it glowy and made the blush stand out.
Not edited (only cropped).  Here it's only the white light from my blitz that lightens up. It toned down the cheeks and enhanced the eyes - one can never win with electric light. (Yes this is a different lip colour)
Edited, just because I couldn't help myself ;)
This look is very intense, both on the eyes and cheeks. Put on your favorite party dress and be prepared for a night out! This look is definitely what I'll be wearing next time I go out.. Or just want to freak someone out ;)
