WBD: Lip art the Parisian way

Staying on the subject of Paris, today I want to share a video of a make up tutorial by Lisa Eldridge.

To create these looks she not only mixes two shades, but she also uses either matte or mix things up using cream and sheer, or sheer and matte lipstick in one look.

That’s mostly because all of the Halloween stuff I’ve seen when I was in LA during my birthday week. Everywhere I went there were the costumes and the pumpkins and so on, which brought me to the idea to do a WBD special on Halloween makeup tutorials found on YouTube today.

#WBD: Flormar Bohemian Dream Collection

Bohemian-Dream-Collection 2015

My first encounter with Flormar was during my last visit to Barcelona, Spain. As I was walking by this colourful make-up store, I couldn’t help stepping inside. Right then and there I fell in love with the brand and became a member right after I bought some cute colours of nail polish. Ever since then I’ve been getting these newsletters from them, which I don’t understand one single word from, since they’re in Spanish. So If I want to know what they say, I have to Google translate. But sometimes I do get a video! Continue reading “#WBD: Flormar Bohemian Dream Collection”
