Can I be kind of fat and still be delicate and pretty?
Oh, darling, let’s completely disregard the lies the media has told us, that to be delicate is to have thin wrists tied in red ribbon. The cultural obsession with the Lolita-figure, that defines delicacy as slim and adolescent, is - pardon my french - a whole load of bullshit.
To me, there are so many different way of being delicate.
You could have the features of an upturned nose, or a rosebud mouth; wholly genetic blessings of a Victorian era lady. Then there is my favourite: the fairies and sylphs that clothe themselves in modern-day gossamer. Think breezy kimonos that twirl in the wind, darling tulle skirts, sprinkling yourself with glitter dust from collarbone to collarbone. Or how about to be like the ballet dancers, who move with dignity and grace as they walk on air? What about the dewy trend that is so in vogue right now, where girls (and guys) glow radiantly across the screen - the children of Midas and spring goddesses.
Ok guys I hope you all know this… But if you’re going to wear mascara put it on your bottom lashes as wel! It doesn’t have to be a lot! I wear a lot on my top AND bottom lashes because I love long lashes. If you put a ton on your top lashes and none on your bottom that looks super weird and strange because it just doesn’t look natural and you have to balance out the mascara on both lashes💖😏
Your blog is awesome! Love it! So I'm kinda new to doing a 'full face' like with highlights and contouring. Any advice on how to get started with that / what would be the best products to start out with? I really love the makeup trends right now and want to give it a try. Thank you <3
Best thing is to watch YouTube tutorials for beginners hunny, helped me tones!!💗 for highlighting I love Mary Lou the balm, Mac in the spot light - double gleam, jeffree stars skin frosts and for contouring for cream I use Anastasia Beverly Hills and for powder I like too faced and benefit bronzers x
Strobing may be a major makeup trend at the moment, but that doesn’t mean we all can’t benefit from a little contouring here and there to give the face a little more shape and definition. I’ve tried hundreds of different contouring products, but these are the best contouring products such as creams, gels and powders that I have tried. Prefer a video? Watch “Best Contouring Products” on Youtube.

Hello 😊 Im looking for contour cream.how do u think about anastasia contour kit?
Hi there! The Anastasia Cream Contour Kit is a good one, but it’s not my favorite. I find that the colors are a bit harder to blend than I’d like! My favorite cream contour is the Smashbox Contour Stick Set! I love the easy, precise application, and they can basically blend down to nothing if you try (which is a GOOD thing when it comes to contouring!) You don’t want anything that’s too sticky or too pigmented, because it’s hard to go back if you’ve put on too much.

The colors are very buildable, so they’ll work for anyone from fair to olive or tan skin. I definitely recommend them!
Create a naturally perfect complexion by using tinted moisturiser as a base. Use cream products to contour and enhance the face blending in-between each step with a small amount of the same tinted moisturiser on a brush.
A light shimmery shade of shadow can be used to bring light to your best features. In other words, highlight them. This isn’t just for your brow bone, inner corner, outer corner and center of your lid. A light shimmery shade of shadow can also be used on your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, center of your forehead, on your Cupid’s bow and even down the center of your legs to make them look longer!
A matte brown shade of shadow that’s a few shades darker than your skin tone can be used as a contour powder and this isn’t just for defining the crease of your eyelid. Use it to add more dimension to your face under your cheekbones, around your temples and down the sides of your nose.
3. Brow enhancer:
A matte shade of shadow that matches your brow colour and used with an angled brow brush can be used to define your brows. Generally if you have dark hair you should opt for a shade that is one shade lighter than your hair colour and for light hair the opposite is true, meaning you should opt for a shade one shade darker than your hair colour.
Instead of sucking in your cheeks and making a fish face to see the hollows of your cheeks when contouring (which can result in your contour being applied too close to your nose and looking muddy) try making a soft pout.
