This is a look my class mate actually did couple of times to me during our makeup period.
It was honestly the only makeup I kept the whole day after the class and the only makeup I have recreated since it to myself allready couple of times.
Only thing is that I added some of my own things to it (The winged liner and white waterline). The "Original one had only a really thin blavk liner (not winged), and the pink was matte color.
I think this really emphesizes blue eyes! :)
This also compliments my red hair (which hasn't changed after I colored it red haha :D I will stick into it!)
Remember to "LOVE" this at Makeup Geek Idea Gallery! (CLICK THIS)
Here's how you can achieve this look (the eyes)!
1. Apply a base (Mine was just a white kohl pencil)
2. Pat a dark grey eyeshadow to the outer corners and blend carefully towards the inner corner (Don't bring the dark too close to your inner corner or it will close up your eyes) [Small blending brush]
3. Pat the matte pink eyeshadow to the lid [Flat stiff brush
4. Add some light to the eyes by feathering the white eyeshadow from the inner corner towards the pink (little bit over it also) [Flat brush, soft rounded brush]
5. Feather some of the grey color on top of the pink, towards the center of the lid. [small flat brush]
6. Take a synthetic brush, wet it little bit and add a shimmery pink eyeshadow on top of the matte eyeshadow (By wetting the brush, you get the metallic effect. You can also use some kind of mixing medium like Inglots' Duraline) [Sythetic flat brush]
7. Do a lower lashline shadow with grey and black [Little pencil brush] (If your eye are small, skip this step or line only half away like I have done.)
8. Line the upper lashline with your favourite liner.
9. Add mascara
DONE! :)

Competition Results

Hey everyone! 

As u all might allready know, I took a part in a makeup art competition in (it was a "Finlands best 2013" competition) in I Love Me- messut (I Love Me-event). 

I was so busy with the makeup competitio that I couldn't consentrare to the event itself, but I will write about it more in another time (they are annual makeup, healt and fashion event). 


To the makeup competition! 

I was in student class in this. Above u can see the certification everyone who participated got no matter what their points were. It has my name on it, what competition it was. :) 

Let me tell u, there were so many students from a proper makeup school! As u know I'm in cosmetology school, not in makeup school yet, so u can guess they had more experience doigs special effects and everything cool! 

The theme was circus, my character was a tightrope walker. (I can't put photos of my model here yet, cause I don't know if she likes her photos to be shown)

The competition itself was really amazing experience for me, I really liked it even if I normally don't like to being watched by lot of people (everyone who visited the event could watch the competition). ^_^

There was 19 participant. Unfortunately I didn't place among the 3 best (this time!!!). 
But.... I was SIXTH!! I got 83 points! (The first got 103 points). I lost to the fift student only by 1 lousy point :D 

WOHOOO!! I'm so happy even if I didn't win! 

As a next journey I do makeups to fashion show in our school :) 

And MARCH 2014 I go to my next competition :) HAIR AND BEAUTY event. 


Now have a good week and see u soon, now that my makeup course is over, i can continue doing makeup posts :)

Rant: Stop the time

Aaaaaargh, again so much time has gone by since I last time wrote. I have been so busy with school and makeup competition practises (and clients also). I'm overwhelmed how much work I have and how fast the time goes by - just stop the time for a while and let me breathe! >.<

Everyday after school I feel soooooo drained I could just fall to the bed and fell asleep in a second - specially after hairdo classes... 'Cause I suck at hair things. Here's a proof: 

Yeah... I just don't have that "dimension" thinking skill (don't dare to say I'm wrong) .
I have hard time doing any makeup posts at the time 'cause all of my brushes are in school or wet because I have used them in school and then have washed them. :( So u just have to bare my rants at the time. 

To the end, some pics: 

Matchy hair and makeup color ;) 

Ummm, yeah I turned into red head again xD brunette or dip dye wasn't my thing. 

Fall is coming, enjoying last warm weathers :) 



Color Challenge: Purple and Yellow

Morning!! (I'm mentally still asleep).

Yesterday at makeup class one of my classmates said I shpuld do a purple + yellow makeup for her sometime.
... I got scared xD
'Cause I find that usually yellow looks really good only on darker skin tones.

And purple.... well, we don't want a bruised eye effect :D

But I took a challenge and as I got a day off today from school I tought I would try out a purple + yellow eye makeup.

Here's only one look for now. My eyes are so dry from washing the makeup away all the time in school + in home so they tear really easily. Can't create many looks on same day at the time, sorry :(
To achieve this look I used:

* Elite Fluide Perfection Foundation in "Opale" (Little too yellow for me)
* Meow Cosmetics mineral foundation in "Chausie (0-inquisitive)"
* Makeup For Ever Taupe eyeshadow for contour
* Makeup Geek Eyeshadow "Cupcake" as Blush (faded away in photo)

* Inglot base
* NYX Jumbo pencil "Milk"
* Makeup Geek e/s "Yellow Brick Road" (lid)
* Makeup Geek e/s "Goddes" (crease)
* BH Cosmetics 120 palette 2nd edition, 3 shades of purple (Lower lid)
* Inglot grey e/s (outer corner of the lower lid)
* Makeup Geek e/s "Gold Digger" (Highlight on the browbone and tear duct)
* Makeup Geek gel liner "Immortal" (Winged liner and upper waterline)
* Nyx Jumbo Pencil "Milk" (Lower waterline)


Thank you for reading! ^^



School makeuping: everyday makeup


We have a makup and hair do period in school at the time. 
I so have waited this! :P 
Even the hair! ... At least for far as we started... I realized I hate doing hair for someone else. xD 

Today we did a everyday makeup.
 I felt little restricted, cause the teachers have their own style so they teach it to us... 
But I will and can do my own thing - they know I have experierence about doing makeup so they don't mind if I do something differently than others (also 'cause I will be going to competition). (Kauneus ja teveysmessut ;)) 

Besides, isn't makeup a form of art? U really can find your own style of doing it - would be dull to have strict rules :(.

The teacher showed the eye makeup to my model (to the other side). 
My classmate then said to me: 'now u have a pressure to make the pther match the teachers!' 
... Yup, I did felt little pressure after that :D 
But I think I did well. 

Here's my lovely model and classmate. Sorry the bad quality of the photo, phone camera boohoo :(
From this point of view, I did the left eye, teacher the right one (also made little touch ups for hers so that it matches to my style). 

I went for neutral colors, cause she had to go to work after school. 

Color range in this look: 

*Dark grey 
* Black 
* Shimmery white (tear duct higlight) 
* Medium brown 
* Eggshell white 

The whole makeup (face, brows, eyes) have been done with Ben Nye cosmetics.

Tommorrow I will try some pinks maybe, we'll see ;)

Thank you for reading!

Rant: Work vs. Freetime

I'm quite lazy... But that's only 'cause I'm also kind of a work-a-holic. And by work-a-holic I mean I get frustrated if I don't have anything to do at work time and I just have to sit there doing nothing. Get's me rally anxious.
I get the feeling I'm useless, if I don't do something all the time.

I'm not so crazy that I would think of work on my freetime also.... Oh wait a minute, I take that back, I do think of work things on my freetime.
BUT I would rather not think them!
It's just that as I'm on beauty industry, people come to ask beauty related things from me also on my freetime.

So as I have freetime I do use it by relaxing, loafing on the sofa, eating bad foods (REMEMBER YOUR VEGIES KIDS!! :D), watching movies under bfs' arm.
That makes me 'lazy'.
Lazy 'cause I'm really not lazy... if that made any sense in the world (quess not :D).

At the time I'm a _Lash Technician_ (Yes I have a sertificate, I'm not selftaught).

In the picture above, is one of my lovely clients. :) She has allready naturally long lashes, so we could add a lenght quite a bit.
On the picture she has lashes that are C-curl (so they are quite curvy ooh lalala ;)) in 9, 11, and 13mm lenghts.
Later we add also some 15mm lashes to the outer corners, but I don't have picture from them.
As I'm poor student, boohoo, I work at home (and in some cases I go to clients home).
My bf once said that it would be fun if he had a room where he could work, fix things (he's into cars and in my opinion it seems like he generally likes fixing things) and have basically  'garage' as his room - so that after he's ready to go to sleep he could only fall to the bed, not leaving the room.
It sounds great I admit, and fun. :D But I said that I wouldn't mix work and freetime.
At first it's fun.
But then all the work things starts to stress you right in the place where you shouldn't think of working your ass off.
I noticed and proofed this just recently as I had done yet another lashes to client and tried to go to sleep in the night.
I just couldn't.
All that I could see as I closed my eyes was doing lash extensions.
And as much as I love doing them, I hate that I can't sleep because of them! :(
I really like my sleep, I want to sleep!! Please?
Anyone that relates??? 

In a nutshell: I DON'T RECOMMEND LETTING WORK TO COME TO YOUR FREETIME. (Or it will soon come to your drems also... SOOOON xD)

For this same reason I'm afraid that makeup becomes something I don't want to do as a hobby 'cause I start to do it also in school this fall... I don't want it to feel like a job. :(
Meh, that's not going to happen! :D *Confident*

To the end another lash extension pic. :)
B- curls in 9 and 11mm lenght + C-curl in 7mm


Hair day

Hello everyone :) 

*sigh* I may have a really bad habit... As I'm upset or feeling down, I kind of tend to either color my hair or cut it. (Or I just get bored to the old color really quickly... Or both :D) 
And I know! It's not so healthy to color your hair radically many times in a row... So don't do it! :D 
At least I haven't bleach my hair entirely, I did it only once and it was in a salon and as I wanted to get rid of my black color. 

Well, I have been red head just recently, but now I wanted to get rid of the red color. I didn't want to do a bleaching. And if u didn't know, red is a difficult hair color: it doesn't stay vibrant long, but it's a pain in the bottom to try color it away. :D 
My only choice since I didn't want a bleaching was to color my hair with a cool brown color (to get the warmness of the red away) - I did this last time. 

Now I colored with golden brown (seems darker than it should be, cause the red is still affecting on the bottom). And the added little obre effect, but just to my lower layers. I'm quite pleased, even if the bleached part is little carrot! :D :) 

I sat under the bus shelter for almost on hour 'cause I was feeling down. 
The graffitti looks quite cool beside my blue sweater and pink earplugs, don't u think!? :D 

U may laugh at me, but I' actually planning on trying to do sone POKEMON  inspired makeup looks in near future. :P haha. 

See u <3
