I am already more than 3 weeks back from vacation and I totally forgot to tell you what makeUp I took with me to Castellammare del Golfo in Sicily. So now I finally found time and here we go:
I took 5 different eyeshadows and a blusher by ARTDECO and I put them in a MAC palette. all the ARTDECO powder products like blusher and eyeshadows have a tiny magnet on the back so they are made to be stored in a palette. perfect for vacation as you can put together your individual palette. in general in summer or in summer vacation I am not applying MakeUp every day but in the evening after a long day on the beach it is nice to pamper oneself and wear a nice dress and go for dinner. well thats what I did. I was only wearing the makeUp in the evening as it was way too hot to wear makeUp during the day..
a sparkly pale brown
a matte stale blue
a warm matte dark mauve
a pale light matte brown
a matte light powdery beige
a nice warm almost pan of terracota
so as you can see out of the 5 eyeshadows 4 of them are matte and only one has shimmer.I either wore a simple look or a more smokey look.
I start with 551 all over the lid and highlight the parts below the brows. 16 in the crease.
551 all over the lid and highlight the parts below the brow and the inner corner of the eyes. then I take 506 and cutting the crease. and using 517 and 520 to blend it towards the eyelid.
awesome pigmentation and no fall out thats exactly what I want from eyeshadows – I will for sure get more of these in order to have more shimmery shadows too. will keep you posted.
where can you get these ARTDECO products? I found mine at parfumcity.ch they have awesome deals and since it is a swiss online shop you dont have to pay any extra charges from the customs. ARTDECO is a german brand and is based in Karlsfeld Germany.

something new by maccosmetics the gorgeous ULTIMATE collection with the lipsticks in their chunky packaging – so in love with the colors I got! and a sheer mystery powder in four different shades – the other new launched collection is called RED RED RED and it puts together the most awesome shades of red – not only for the lips but also for cheeks and nails.
I am so in love with the mac lipsticks and my favorite lipstick color is red – I could not be more happy about the two new collections. the ULTIMATE lipsticks are very creamy and the pigmentation is just beyond! I would wear marque on a day to day base and the scene for an elegant night out – so that is another thing that I love about the collection. it offers a wide range of colors – something for all of us. the RED RED RED collection holds some products that I have already extremely loved before – these are the two lipsticks LADYBUG and SEE SHEER. a little side note – I was a huge fan of the Cindy lauper Viva Glam lipstick unfortunately that was a limited edition and I couldnt find that very lipstick anywhere.. so I think the see sheer is a nice dupe for that maybe not exactly a dupe but for me it is close enough.

a simple bronzing look with almost nude lips and a thin black eyeliner line and a touch of blush on the apples of the cheeks. I wear the light perfecting base by Clarins as a base and eyeshadow. this look took me about 10 minutes and I am sure I could have done it faster – but who likes to stress when applying makeup – NOT me!
aww. M.A.C has launched the new collection called MOODY BLOOMS
and I got a few pieces to play with. This morning I used the BRED FOR BEAUTY BEAUTY POWDER BLUSH and the MINERALIZE SKINFINISH NATURAL SUN POWER! wow! these products are totally made for me!
blushes, bronzers and lipsticks are my favorites! I will get back to you and introduce the whole collection.
today is a special day, I am going to meet my Bloggerfriend MIA and we are going to the hairdresser to experience something new. soon I will tell you more! stay tuned. xx
