A Little Bit of Everything

Hey, everyone! Hope you all are having a great weekend! Just wanted to make a quick post on some things that I've been loving lately :)

FOTD/HOTD: This is the makeup look that I've been wearing a lot! It is super easy and fast! I hope you like it. 

Almost forgot to tell you about my hair do: I usually don't like braids, but I got some compliments on this hair style and it's so easy and fast as well. I actually am into braids now!

































This is what I used:

FACE - pro longwear foundation, studio finish concealer, msf natural, "tenderling" blush (all MAC)

EYES - brow wax by MAC, "bamboom" paint by MAC, shiseido cream shadow in "lemon sugar", "fascinating" eye kohl by MAC, white shadow by bourjois, loreal liquid liner, kiss lashes №026

LIPS - MAC lip gelee (don't know the name, sorry!)












HAUL: I wanted to share with some beauty things that I got and really like
















MAC mineralize all-over lotion - love it! use it all the time! this is my third tube!
MAC eyeshadow in "crystal" - pretty light silvery purple
OPI exfoliating cuticle treatment - keeps your cuticles neat and healthy


















Duo lash adhesive - it's the best
And I love my new mirror from Stockmann :)

I also wanted to show you my beloved MAC palette. I've been using it a lot lately, I feel like I have to give it a break and use other shadows that I own. It's really cool, because it has colors literally from MAC stores all over Europe, they were like little souvenirs to me :) some of the shadows I depotted myself, some are limited edition. It's not full yet, but I like that I still have some free spots in it. I only have one large palette, because most of my MAC shadows are in a pot form. 









Top row (left to right) - star violet, sushi flower, jest, paradisco, coquette
Middle row - graphology, green-smoke, stately black, electra
Bottom row - crystal, sumptuous olive, too dolly, white frost

RECIPE: I enjoy cooking Chinese lately! Check out these shrimp pot stickers http://www.marthastewart.com/334077/shrimp-pot-stickers-with-sriracha-ginger
I actually made wontons myself too :)












Until the next time, everyone!
