My Go To Spring Look

Hey guys!
This is my Go To Spring Look! It's simple and quick because you might already know that I'm some lazy-ass student rushing out of the door every single morning. The eyes are kept neutral with a pop of green and I added some of my fav spring shades on my lips - yes, I gave you three options because I couldn't decide which color looked best with this. :) I'm wearing this all the time now I'm a home and going out a little bit more - and I hope you like this look just as I do. :)




What I used:

  • Essence All About Matt! Oil Control Make-Up Base
  • P2 Perfect Eyes! Base
  • L'Oreal Nude Magique Eau de Teint in 220 Golden Sand
  • NYX Concealer Jar in 06 Glow
  • Yves Rocher Velvety Loose Powder in 02 Transparent Beige
  • ELF Blush&Bronzer Duo
  • Essence Sun Club All-In-One Bronzing Highlighter Brunettes/Dark Skin
  • Manhattan Powder Rouge Tender Touch Lady Marmalade
  • Maybelline BROWdrama Sculpting Brow Mascara Darkbrown
  • Manhattan Eyemazing Eyeshadow Pen 30
  • Maybelline SuperLiner
  • Essence Multi Action Mascara
  • L'Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipgloss 501 Bonnie
  • Manhattan Waterflash Lipgloss 46D
  • NYX Butter Gloss Peach Cobbler 


Here are some more pictures of the look. :)


Lip Option No.1 - L'Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipgloss in 501 Bonnie
Lip Option No.2 - Manhattan Waterflash Lipgloss 
Lip Option No.3 - NYX Butter Gloss in 06 Peach Cobbler
I hope you liked this look, there will be a more colorful spring look coming up soon - so stay tuned if this was a little bit to boring for you. :)

The All-Hander


Hey guys,
so for most of my lipstick reviews for my "Beauty Bites" series I'm wearing this "All-Hander" look, which is obviously a look you can do without any additional brushes. I like to wear this on lazy days and if I'm late for uni and don't want to look like i haven't had any sleep for decades. This look is seriously fool-proof and looks good most of the time. But make sure to wipe your hands before switching products. This will take you no longer than 10 minutes max. :)

This is what I used:
  • Catrice Ultimate Moisture Foundation (discontinued - I also like to use other foundations mixed with my moisturizer. :D)
  • Body Collection Highlighting Foundation (Highlight on my cheekbones, above the arch of my brows, on my brow bones, inner corners of the eyes, nose bridge, chin)
  • Maybelline Clear Glow BB Stick (for a subtle contour around my hair line, jaw line and underneath my cheek bones, sides of my nose and crease of my eyes)
  • Couleurs Nature Loose Transparent Powder (applied with a powder puff after tapping of the excess)
  • Some pink cream blush (mine is from a LE by essence but you can use whatever you want even a lipstick)
  • Maybelline Color Tattoo 24h eyeshadow in 25 Bad To The Bronze
  • Tinted Brow gel (I used one from an essence LE again but you can find one from P2 which I think is really good as well)
  • Benefit They're Real! Mascara



This "highlighting foundation" makes pores appear bigger if you use too much but a tiny bit goes a long way. I also wouldn't recommend using it as a foundation all over your face. It will make you look like an oil slick unless it s what you are going for. ^^



And this is the result on me:


So I hope you liked this post. What's your easiest make-up look like? Do you even bother to slap so many things on?

Skin Care Routine #1


Hey guys,
today I wanted to show you my Winter Morning Routine or my morning routine for the colder days in general as there wasn't a real winter here in Germany. This only covers my skin care because who the heck cares about what I use to brush my teeth? Jokes. But during the colder days my skin turns into a dry itchy what-ever-you-want-to-call-it and it is rather a pain keeping it moisturized.

So here is what I use:


First, I wash my face with a cleansing milk. I don't really care about the brand as they all work the same for me but this one is by Nivea for all skin types. I avoid gels because they are too aggressive for my skin at the moment and I can't bother to fight even drier skin. This gets rid of anything that might be left from the day before (if I have been to lazy to take of my make-up properly. :P).


Second, I tone my face. This Eau Roma Water toner by Lush has been a little savior for my face. It regulates, soothes the skin and I've had it for six months now - yeah, I really like it. They main ingredient here is lavender so be careful not to get it in your eyes and don't use it if you're allergic to it. I like to use this in the morning and evening.


Third, I use a light eye cream for the day. It's from bebe more and especially made for sensitive skin, which is why it is paraben and perfume free. It is moisturizing enough for the day and sinks in quite quickly. Another benefit is that it has a rose tint to it hiding you under-eye circles. :)


Fourth, I like to use a serum by L'oreal Skin Perfection which I got as a gift. I only use it for more moisture before my day cream but it is supposed to peel your skin gently and make it glow as the dead skin cells are obviously gone. I let it sink in for 3 minutes or so.


Lastly, I apply the Feel Good Factor by Soap and Glory. The reason I use a serum before it is that it's too thin and not moisturizing enough on its own for my dry skin. But still I need a sun screen and you get a SPF of 25 with this. It sinks in quite quickly so if I want to do my make-up afterwards I don't have to wait as long.

So this is my skin care routine for my early mornings. Do you use some of this stuff?

Wet'n'Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Color in Cherry On Top



Hey guys,
todays post of "Beauty Bites" is about the Wet'n'Wild Liquid Lip Color in Cherry On Top. They are darn hard to find in Germany as only a few supermarkets hold this brand but if you find it...all of their products are really good and affordable. :) This product costs about 4€ and you get 8 ml. There is a shade range of 13 colors and I own 5 of these - Cherry On Top is my fav off all the colors I bought. :)

Here you can see what it looks like:

Also I wore this color on NYE (click here to have a look. :)). 
This is what wet'n'wild says about this product:
Intense liquid color with built-in moisturizer provides one-step application for weightless, ultra-conditioning wear that lasts up to 8 hours. ElastiSilk™ formula combines flexible color adhesion with silky-smooth pigments for transfer-proof, even application. Paraben-free formula conditions and moisturizes with vitamin E that helps promote anti-aging, protects the skin's moisture barrier, and balances the lip's natural hydration for a healthy-looking, plump pout all day.
The Liquid Lip Color looks like a lipgloss with a very flattened applicator but it is definitely not as sheer. Meaning it is as pigmented as a lipstick but the application is as easy as one of a lipgloss. You can apply a bold color like this very precisely with the flat applicator. But there is something you have to keep in mind if you want to wear this - if you smack your lips together before the layer of product has dried it will come of and the color will be uneven and chipped. Once it has dried it will last a veeeery long time but it won't survive a meal which has quite a lot of oil in it. It is indeed transfer-proof but this comes with a rather drying component, which was obvious but is a little disappointing as the company advertises its "ultra-conditioning" thing. Also, be sure to prep your lips (like exfoliate and moisturize) before applying this. You could also put it over the lip color but it won't last as long then. Finally, it doesn't bleed out of your lipline so a lipliner isn't really a must here.  Now, the color Cherry On Top is (obviously) a cherry red with barely noticeable shimmer. There is a bluish hint in the color which is why your teeth appear a little whiter. It dries to a satin finish and even for me it isn't an everyday color - it's rather bold but I don't know if the picture shows that. :)

Soo, if you're looking for a long-lasting red which doesn't take too much time to apply you can't go wrong with Cherry On Top. :)

Kristy xxxx
