49. Christmas wishlist

Hello everyone!
I know it's been literally AGES, I can't even excuse myself I can only say how sorry I am for not uploading a post in forever! Hopefully this time I'll be back for good! I'm gonna try to make time for blogging, at least once a week because I miss this and I miss everyone!
Anywaaaaaaaay, I didn't quite know which post come back with so figured out being (almost) Christmas time (the most beautiful time of the year!) I'd write a Christmas wishlist! So here it is:

As some of you may know, I love the 60's and its fashion, so I'm quite obsessed with this kinda booties. I love a velvet pair and a leopard pair both from H&M but thought these are like the basics.

Ever since Kat Von D cosmetics were available in Spain I've been lusting after them, especially after this foundation. With its high coverage, matte finish and long duration on, I think its ideal for nights out!

I'm obsessed with strobbing and I've been looking for this like crazy lately but it's sold out everywhere in Barcelona! I just think it gives such a gorgeous glow and it has a great staying power (I used my friend's once!).

I want a pair of grey jeans and I know these are more on the black side but I just love how high-waisted they are and the holes in the knees and how they fit!

Of course this has to be on my list! I love them, especially Dolce K and Candy K! They're sold out though and I find them quite expensive so I'd gladly accept the Colour pop ones they've got the dupes (apparently) from! They're way cheaper too! You can find them here, here and here.

6. Last one's a cheeky one but I've been hoping I'd found Harry Styles under my Christmas tree for like 5 years now, so maybe, now they're on a break he's got time to sneak under it... A girl can dream, right?

What have you all been up to during all this time? What's on your Christmas wishlist?

48. Eyebrow care

Hi everyone! 
It's been a while and we know it may sound as an excuse but things got real busy! Hopefully after this hiatus we're back for good! We've got exciting things planned for the blog! 
I don't know about you guys but we're obsessed with eyebrows! We think they frame your face and can change your expression so if we could only use 3 makeup items, an eyebrow gel or pencil would be one of them for sure! 
However, I'm not gonna talk about eyebrow makeup products today because I'm yet to find THE product! I do love Benefit's brow gel but I'm looking for something that gives them a bit more definition so if you've got a holy grail makeup product for brows that exists in blonde shade let me know PLEASE! 
What I wanted to talk to you guys about is a product that's improved my eyebrows' appearance a solid 90%. Back in October I overplucked them to the point where I looked like my eyes were on each side of my face (and I totally thought I looked like an alien lolz). Just then (perfect timing) the lovely Paige at Lilash & Librow contacted us to try out their products. I've been applying Librow religiously every night and just a month later I had my full eyebrows back, just the way I like them. They look thicker and healthier now! You just need to spply it like a brow gel either in the morning or st night and it dries (that's why I prefer applying it at night, because I don't wear makeup) so it's easy peasy!
This is 100% my real opinion and even though I got it sent for free I would never write about something I haven't used myself and like. 
This were my eyebrows back in October:

And this are my eyebrows at the moment:

How have yall guys been? We need to catch up on so many blog posts! Is there something especific you use to take care of your eyebrows?

47. My everyday makeup routine

Hello everyone! 
How are you all? We both have finished our exams, Caro's having some deserved off time in London and I've been in bed with tonsilitis since I finished them, great innit? I've been meaning to write this post for ages but I couldn't even bring myself to think or edit or just anything apart from sleeping. I'm sorry!
However, here I am. This is a post I've been asked to write a few times so here it is: my everyday makeup routine! In this post I'm gonna explain you what I usually use on my face! (I'll do a tutorial too eventually and a post on lips' care among others.)
To start with, after washing and moisturizing my face I:

1. Apply primer all over my face
I use the Instablur from The Body Shop as it's just the best one I've tried. Amazing quality-price relation and the tube lastes me ages. It helps my pores disappear and my makeup stay on all day. I apply it with my fingers in circular motions.

2. Apply my foundation
I am currently mixing up my Rimmel Lastin finish in the colour 010 Light Porcelain as it's extremely light for me, with my L'Oreal Accord Perfect in Honey. I get my exact colour with them both. I apply it with a foundation brush.

3. Apply my concealer
I'm using Maybelline's Eraser in Light as it covers my dark eyes perfectly and doesn't crease. I also use it under my cheekbones. I use my beauty blender to blend it in. Applying concealer after foundation helps me get a more natural look and make sure my foundation stays in place.

4. Apply eyeshadow primer
I use Benefit's Lemon Aid to even out my eyelid tone. I apply it with a small brush that came in the set with the lemon aid.

5. Apply loose powder
Now I've got a flawless-looking face I want it to last all day! For that I use my reliable Rimmel's Stay Matte powder in 005 Silky Beige. I apply it with a big powder brush all over my face in small taps as I want my foundation to stay on my face, not brush.

6. Face contour
Contour is one of the most important things in makeup for me. I use Sleek's face form palette in Medium. However, I only use the contour powder from there as the bronzer's too shimmery and I find the highlighter too subtle. I apply the contour powder on my cheekbones and my jawline with a contour brush. Righ after that I use my Kiko bronzer powder in 104 (it's matte) as a blush to not make the contour line too obvious and gime me a healthy colour. However, I do use a pink blush sometimes instead of the bronzer if I'm going for a girly look.

7. Eyebrows
Eyebrows. Are. Hella. Important. They frame our face and give us character. I love big brows, however, I'm not saying everyone should have them bushy brows out but let's face it, a natural brow is more attractive than the over-plucked ones we wore back in the day! I have naturally bushy brows, I trim and pluck them myself and I like using Essence's eyebrow designer in blonde to perfect them. However' I won't be repurchasing this as it's a bit darker than my actual brows and I find it quite harder to apply as it isn't too smooth.

8. Eyeshadow
If I have time I like to apply some eyeshadow.I love this Makeup Revolution palette I got a few months ago. It's just so cheap and pigmented and all the colours in it are gorgeous. I usually apply "Now it's only me" on my lid and mark my crease with "Take a chance" and "Million dollar contract" as I'm love pink eyeshadows on brown eyes and I think they're very feminine.

9. Mascara
I am a mascara junkie, I like trying out different ones but I'm currently using L'Oreal Miss Manga again as I love it. I apply it on a zig zag motion from my eyelashes' roots to the ends.

10. Fake eyelashes
Now I don't always do that, basically I don't do it if I'm in a rush but I like applying them if I have time as they make me feel a million times prettier (well as pretty as I can get hahah). My favourite ones are Ardell's Demi Wispies. They're really natural looking and their band is invisible instead of black so you don't even need to apply eyeliner to not make it too obvious you're wearing them. 

11. Lip liner
To end up with, also if I have time, otherwise I'll just put on some lipbalm and get going, I'll apply some lipliner. I love using lipliners as they give my lips that matte look but don't dry them out. I am currently loving NYX's Natural and Rimmel's Tiramisu. They both make my lips look plum but natural. (and they're super cheap!!!)

So that's it! If you've got any question on how I apply any of this just ask away! 

What do you usually apply on your face?

46. Current obsessions

Hi everyone!
Long time, no post! We missed blogging and you all! First of all, we wanted to wish you all our fellow bloggers A HAPPY NEW YEAR FILLED WITH LOTS OF HAPPINESS, LOVE AND HEALTH! Now the new year's started we're gonna get back to blogging! We're still busy with exams but we'll get back to blogging routine soon!
How's the festivities been? Hope you all had a lovely time!
I'm gonna tell you what I'm obsessed with at the moment:

1. Music
We've been obsessed with so many songs lately but these are our favourite ones:
-Vance Joy- Riptide
-Taylor Swift- Wonderland
-Sam Hunt- Leave the night on
-Hozier- Take me to church

2. Dr. Lipp nipple balm
This is literally the BESTEST lipbalm ever!!!!! I still use EOS lipbalms on a daily basis but I'm now using this lipbalm and it's so hydrating I don't even need to reapply once! Oh, and it isn't sticky!

3. "Before I go to sleep" by S. J. Watson
I read this book like two years ago and I loved it! I've been thinking about it lots lately and I just think it's amazing and a must read if you like thrillers! I was so hooked up!

4. Fluffy everything
I love everything fluffy! From clutches to hair scrunchies and jumpers! 

5. The Originals
I used to watch The Vampire Diaries and then The Originals but the first one got boring in my opinion so I stopped watching it... And did the same with the latter for some reason! I've restarted watching it during the holidays and I'm SO HOOKED!!!!! I mean Joseph Morgan!!!!!!! Daniel Sharman!!!!!! Their accents!!!!!!!!

6. Daniel Sharman
Of course there had to be a man in this list! I was obsessed with him because of Teen Wolf but his british accent and sassiness in The Originals has just made me love him even more!

7. Candles
I've always loved candles but winter makes me wanna lit candles 24/7! I love vanilla, cinnamon and sweet-scented ones!

8. Demi wispies by Ardell false lashes
I love looooong lashes (don't we all!?) and these are my all time favourite ones! They look natural as the band is transparent and they're a bit longer on the ends which looks very femenine on!

9. Magnitone Lucid by Pixie Lott
My skin has just improved a whole lot since I started using it! I had a skin care routine before but this is just one minute and I barely get spots!

10. Lush Snowfairy shower gel
What can I say? That is my favourite shower gel EVERRRRRRR! I'm just so sad it's a Christmas limited edition so I try to stock up every year!

So this is about it! Sorry for the lack of pictures, this is just a quick post to keep this active!
So what are you obsessed with at the moment?! What are your favourite candles?
