Autumn Playlist

Once again, autumn related blog post. Oh well.

I love how here in Finland the evenings are starting to get much darker. When I think about autumn evenings the things that come in mind are big comfy sweaters, music that makes you feel warm inside (if that even makes any sense), a big cup of tea or hot chocolate (I prefer the hot chocolate), candles and perhaps someone special next to you.

I gathered these in to a playlist so that I could share them with you. These make me feel happy and warm, even though some of them are really sad. There is a little bit of everything in there so I hope you’ll like even a few of them.

Go get yourself a hot drink, light a few candles and start playing the playlist.

Enjoy!

Autumn Lips

HEY GUYS!

I noticed that many of you really seemed to like my previous, Autumn Eye Makeup, blog post, so I thought I should do another makeup related one! And I really do enjoy writing these. This one is an easy tutorial on how to create the perfect autumn lips.

I’m so exited about autumn and red lips are one of the many things that make it so awesome. I almost wish it was always autumn.

Make Up Store, Vamp.

I LOVE this lipstick! Make Up Store’s lipsticks are my favourite. The colour selection is huge, the colour stays on the whole day and they keep your lips moist. The only down side is that they are really expensive here in Finland.

TIP:

If you have dry lips it’s because you are not hydrating yourself enough. The lipstick won’t look good if you have dry lips.

 My favourite way of getting a rid of the dead skin is by gently brushing your lips with a wet soft toothbrush or rubbing your lips with a warm wet towel.

Start by lining your lips with a lip liner. It helps to keep the right shape when you apply the lipstick.

After lining your lips colour the rest of your lips as well with the lip liner. It makes your lipstick stay on longer.

Then apply your lipstick over the lip liner.

I love how this step makes your lips look so dramatic and perfect for autumn and winter. It also gives an illusion of bigger lips.

All you need to do is to tap a dark matte brown eye shadow in to the corners of your lips. Start by tapping the eye shadow with a fluffy brush from the corner of your lips and continue towards the middle so that the corners are much darker.

And there you go!

Autum Eye Makeup I

Hey guys!

I haven’t written anything for a while since I was really busy with school and I got really sick. I can’t even remember when was the last time I was this sick. It sucks… Anyway, I thought I would share my autumn eye makeup look with you guys.

 Autumn and winter have always been my favorite seasons of the year. For example I love all the fall clothes; big cozy sweaters, layering and all the colours. Those two seasons are probably my favorite ones also because of Halloween and Christmas. Aren’t those holidays just the best?!

In the summer I like to wear a light eye makeup and when the autumn finally arrives I start using much darker and warmer colours. This makeup look is obviously not that dark but I’m sure you get the idea.

Here’s a picture from my Favorites post. I used it on this look and I’m still in love with it!

 

I was on holiday in Wales this summer and went crazy with all the makeup products. I especially fell in love with Urban Decay! It’s a pity they don’t sell anything here in Finland… I wouldn’t have any money left if they did though, haha.

I bought this blusher/highlighter/bronzer and it’s everything I could ever ask for. It’s perfect. 

I also bought more Real Techniques brushes. They are perfect!

(In the first picture above I only have contour and in the second I have bronzer, blusher and highlighter.)

I thought it would be easier for us all if I just drew pictures instead of explaining. And yes, I made those using Paint, don’t judge.

Pink – Contour

Yellow – Bronzer

Purple – Blusher

Mint – Highlighter

 

I made my brows the way I always do. Using matte brown eye shadow I started from the outer corner and then filled in the inner part with what ever I had left in the brush. Using a little darker shade on the outer corners gives brows a natural look. The problem with my brows is that they are too light naturally. If you have light hair your brows should be 2-3 shades darker and if you have dark hair your brows should be 2-3 shades lighter. And as always, your brows should look like sisters, not twins (although I sometimes feel like mine are not even related…)!

But if you are lucky and you own perfect shaped and shaded brows you can obviously skip this step.

I also bought this Naked 3 palette from Urban Decay while I was in Wales and it’s amazing. The quality is unbelievable.

1. I tapped the shade “Strange” in the middle of my eyelids with my finger.

 

2. I tapped the shade “Limit” on the outer corner of my eyelids with a brush.

3. I did the same thing as in step 2 with the shade “Factory” but in a bit smaller area so that you could still see the shade “Limit”.

4. Same step as before with the shade “Darkside” but again a bit smaller area. I also used this shade on the outer lower lash lines of my eyes.

I hope I’m not confusing you with those Paint drawings…

If you are a huge eyeliner fan like I am, you have to try Maybelline’s gel eyeliner (you’ll get a eyeliner brush as well when you buy the gel). It stays on the whole day, it’s easy to apply and remove and it won’t stain your eyelashes while applying. I hate it how the marker eyeliners’ ink dries so fast and the liquid eyeliners stain your eyelashes while applying which makes applying mascara difficult/creates clumps.

I started the cat eye by drawing a line like in the first picture above. The perfect angle for the cat eye flick can be found by using a piece of paper or tape the same way as in the picture below.

Then I drew another line like in the second picture and continued by colouring inside the lines and drawing a thin line as close to the lash line as possible from the inner corner of my eye to the outer. And to make the eyelashes look longer I used the eyeliner to colour my upper waterline black as well.

This mascara has been my favorite for so long now. It won’t scatter on your cheeks over the course of the day and it doesn’t create any clumps. Love it!

I used the same fake eyelash technique as I did in the Graduation Makeup post. I took a fake lash, originally made for one eye, and cut it in half for both of my eyes and glued them on using tweezers. Always try the fake eyelashes on before using glue to check if they fit. If they are too long or too thick just cut some of the lashes off, one by one, keeping them a bit different length.

When the glue had dried I tapped a little bit of the gel eyeliner to the part where the lashes are attached to my eyelid to hide the possible shine of the glue.

Youtuber Week – VanossGaming

CLICK THE PHOTO TO GO TO HIS CHANNEL

I shall end my “Youtuber Week” with another gaming channel! I discovered Evan about a month ago. He makes comedy videos with his friends and they are so funny!

The concept of his videos is a bit like SeaNanners’ but his videos are a lot longer and I feel like Evan and his friends like to fool around more. They have made videos together as well (I mention this only because I wrote about SeaNanners a few days ago).

GTA5 and Prop Hunt videos are my favorite ones! I think he does a great job with the editing and stuff.

SO this was the last blog post about youtubers for now BUT please let me know if you would like me to do more of these.

See you next week!

Youtuber Week – Kalel Kitten

CLICK THE PHOTOS TO GO TO HER CHANNELS

Well you probably already knew that I would write about Kalel… You could say that she is my favorite person in YouTube. The reason I love Kalel and her videos so much is because she doesn’t try to be anyone else unlike so many of the vloggers nowadays… I genially feel like she is the person we see in the videos.

Kalel is one of my role models in life. She is really hard working, funny, beautiful and just amazing in every way possible. Hers was probably the second or third channel I ever subscribed to and I have been there ever since then. And I just recently realized that the way I dress changes when hers does… And I hadn’t even noticed!

The first picture/link was Kalel’s personal channel. It’s more like a girly fashion and beauty related channel. The WULAS channel above is her and her fiance’s vlog channel. You probably know who her fiance, Anthony Padilla, is. He is also one of my favorite youtubers ever.

This channel is her newest one. There are no videos yet but Kalel said in her tweet that she would love to have a channel which would be all about her. I don’t know if there’s gonna be any videos ever but we’ll see.

Kalel doesn’t post anything on this channel anymore but I wanted to leave a link to it because these are the videos I watched when I first discovered her and the videos are so magical!

(click the screen shot to go to the video)

Some of you already know this since this is probably like the third time a rave about it but I send these drawings I made to Kalel and Anthony and they opened the letter in front of the camera… HOW AMAZING IS THAT?! SHE CALLED ME TALENTED! *screams*

They send me this drawing they made! I took that photo the same day I got it (a year ago) and… well you can see that I was REALLY happy. I’m so thankful.

Come back tomorrow for a new blog post!

Youtuber Week – Jacksfilms

CLICK THE PHOTO TO GO TO HIS CHANNEL

And again, a channel I have already mentioned, BUT jacksfilms is worth it. He’s a guy who uploads super funny and sassy videos four times a week.

There’s a lot of trash in the YouTube community nowadays, you know, all the teens doing tags and challenges that everybody else is already doing because they want to be famous and have lots of Instagram followers. Well jacksfilms is everything but and that’s why I love him so much. And it’s also refreshing to read tweets from someone who doesn’t ask you to RT his crap for a follow or prices (those tweets are so annoying…).

I think his channel is really unique compared to many other channels. He never does videos that someone else has already come up whit, you know, all the tags etc. But if you see a video which title makes the video seem like it’s something you have already seen, well… Nah, go check it out yourself!

 

Also, How cool is that?! My tweet made it to his “jackask” video!

Come back tomorrow for a new blog post!

Youtuber Week – SeaNanners

CLICK THE PHOTO TO GO TO HIS CHANNEL

Sooo you probably already know who Adam Montoya aka SeaNanners is but I really wanted to rave about his channel. He makes Gaming videos with his fellow youtube gamers and they are so hilarious… I’m a sucker for gaming videos but very few actually make me laugh so much. He is having so much fun in them, the joy is contagious.

But I don’t recommend his videos for those who have slow internet/incredible crappy computer and no ad blocker (p.s. please don’t use ad blocker when watching videos which actual youtubers made, they have worked hard for them and deserve the money they get from them.). That’s because his videos are really short. I had the crappy internet problem going on a few weeks ago and it was painful to try and watch his playlists. Just believe me…

I think that the best way to watch his videos is by phone/tablet. And when I want to watch over 10 minute videos I like to use the computer. But hey, that’s just me. Now go to his channel, it won’t take long, only about three minutes (unless you get addicted to his videos as well haha)!

Remember to come back tomorrow for a new blog post!
