12 Days Of K-XMAS : Shuffle It All – My Own Glittery Favorites

Published December 21, 2014 by Beauty-full Dreams

On the 5th Day of Christmas, I decided to share with you some all-time Korean gems from my own vault ❤

Pretty pearlish and glittery polishes : Modi Glam Nails S02 “Soul Touch”, Scandal B5851 “Pistachio”, Castledew Color Shot Nail 9799 “Emerald Fairy”, Konad R59 “Sky Blue”, Missha Lucid Nail Polish “GPP02”, Konad R10 “Light Gold” and Scandal S060 “Mocha Sparkle”.

 

And because beauty knows no season and some spring & summer items can turn into great allies for a Christmas/New Year look, let me show you how to make the best ot the following cosmetics :

Peripera Sweet Meringue was last year’s spring collection but the solid white “glitters” inside make perfect snowflakes 😉 The 4 colors are : Soda Meringue, Lemon Meringue, Strawberry Meringue and Mint Meringue.

Holika Holika Jewel-light Waterproof Eyeliner One Carat Diamond and 18k Gold are both tear liners but used as regular eyeliners, they’ll make your eyes sparkle like no other ! On the other hand, the pigmented lamé finish of summery Etude House Proof 10 Liquid Liner Blue Coolpix and Turkey Green will add depth to your party makeup 🙂

As you already know, last year’s summer hits from Etude House, Bling In The SeaProof 10 Color Eye Stick Sand Gold, Ocean Wave Blue and Proof 10 Bling Eye Stick Sea Ripples, make terrific shimmery eyeshadows. But have you thought about using the Sand Gold one as a tear liner, or, much more daring, leave a trail of the Sea Ripples green glitters under your eyebrow or at the outer corner of your eyes ?

And how about a light swipe (use a big powder brush) of Etude House Sweet Recipe Chocolate Highlighter, if you have fair skin, or The SAEM Allys Ajell Jelly Cushion Shadow #4 “Cushion Beige” (for darker skins) all over the face instead of your usual powder for a subtle extra glow ?

Tony Moly Body Glow Lotion – Too Sexy comes from this year’s summer collection but this bronzer will give a sexy touch to your arms, legs and cleavage ! Just use it sparsely and blend it well into your skin 😉

Etude House V-line Slim Maker #1 Wood Brown & Sun Gold is meant for contouring but, just like the Sweet Recipe Chocolate Highlighter, it makes a nice shimmery powder. Mine is the Aloha one but it has just been renewed into a holiday special edition 😉

More than making your favorite eyeshadows last longer, Etude House Look At My Eyes Pearl Shadow Base can also turn into a nice cream highlighter if applied under your eyes, in the middle of your forehead, on the bridge of your nose, on your cheekbones and in the middle of your chin 😀

And if Etude House Sweet Recipe Dear My Jelly Lip-talk  “A Slice Of Tangy Lemon” is too discreet for a Christmas & New Year look, don’t forget that its pink glitters and glossy tranparent finish will boost any of your regular lipstick ^^

So, I hope you enjoyed this post and found my advice somehow interesting !

 

Next time, let’s get Frozen once again with Peripera !

VOV Hot & Cool Summer

Published July 2, 2013 by Beauty-full Dreams

VOV decided to add some colors to your summer too with a mini line of “Aqua Proof” makeup designed to help you keep it cool under the scorching heat ^^ Here’s what they have to offer :

UV Aqua CC Cream SPF50+/PA+++  Bye-Darkening Formula, a summer version of the hugely popular CC creams. If you don’t know what a CC cream is (don’t worry, I’ll do a full post about them soon ^^), think of it as a next-gen BB cream that can adapt to any skin color with only 1 unique shade 🙂

VOV UV Aqua CC Cream is a 3-in-1 product with whitening, anti-wrinkle and anti-UV properties that moisturizes and cools down your skin. And I love its packaging too ❤

Good-Bye Black Smudge Waterproof Button Liner, a liquid liner available in 5 summer shades (Black, Brown, Wine, Mint and Purple)

Good-Bye Black Smudge Waterproof Mascara, a black mascara that boosts either the length or volume of your lashes

Lash Proof (pink cap) & Volume Proof (orange cap)

Shining Tint Lipstick with its fun pop colors

Orange Tint, Purple Tint, Red Tint

I think these items would a nice addition to any makeup bag 🙂 The only problem with VOV products is that they’re a bit difficult to find online.
