Burgundy Christmas Look + Etude House Dear Darling Tint No. 2 Real Red

We wish you a merry christmas~ <3<3<3
It's that time of the year again, holy jolly CHRISTMAS
I am super duper excited right now, because I'm going to have christmas dinner with my friends and family soon.

Today, I'm going to show you this winter make up trend, which is Burgundy color. It's a really pretty deep pinkish red color which will warm up your christmas night.

The main focuses of this look is the eye and lips. Don't go super bold, or else you'll look like you've been punched.

This is the eyes. Here are the steps:
1. Brighten your lids by applying a shimmery white shadow all over.
2. Apply a deep burgundy color at the outer part of your lid, blend inwards.
3. Darken the most outer part of your eyes with a deep brown color to enhance your eyes, bring it down to your outer lower eyes.
4. Blend nicely with a fluffy brush.
5. Apply a gold color at your inner corners, blend it with the burgundy color. Also highlight your under eye.
6. Apply more burgundy color for a more "pop" looking.
7. Apply eyeliner and your favorite mascara.

for the lips:

1. Apply Etude House Dear Darling Tint no. 2 at the center of your lips. Work slowly, then blend it out.
2. For a softer look, apply a concealer that match your skin tone at the edge of your lips, blend it with the liptint.
3. Apply a pinkish lipcolor to blend the deep red.
4. Apply a clear gloss for finishing touch.

That's it!
Now moving on to the review.

I really really love this lip tint! I love how it has a real red tone in it. It has a gel consistency, which doesn't dry out my lips that much. it has a cherry kind of smell, and the best part is... it isn't bitter. I hated liptints because usually it has a bitter taste, but this one doesn't! Love it so much. This will be my everyday lipcolor from now.

I also love the packaging. it's sturdy, and it has a very princessy design on the cap. Love etude's products <3<3

And that's it for today! I hope you find it helpful.

November Favorites

Hello again!
It's been about 3 months since I blogged. I really miss you guys! You know, I'm an art student now and there are lots of projects till I have no time for anything else. And now, I'm finally back!

This year went so fast, especially November. It went too fast, I think.
Christmas is super super near, and I'm really excited for that! Do you? What's your plan for christmas?
So, here are my last month favorites!

It's not that much, but they're really my top favorites product. Let's hit them one by one!

Mashami Shouko 320 Round Top Brush

This thing is amazing. Like, wow. It's not expensive too, around 9 bucks. The bristles are super soft and dense. It doesn't absorb your foundation. All you need is dab your face with foundation, and blend them with it. It blends everything nicely and super fast like really. Love it so much!

Clean & Clear Essentials Moisturizer

It has a watery texture, which why I fell in love with it. I have a combination to oily, acne-prone skin. This moisturizer gives me a nice moist feeling without breaking me out. And it isn't oily at all. I use it as my morning moisturizer and my make up goes on smoothly.

Can Make Concealer (Smudge Proof and Water Poof) in no.1

This concealer is the best concealer that I ever had. As an art student, I have a really terrible dark circles. No concealer can hide them except this one. It has a very creamy texture, and feels kinda heavy. But that's what I need. heavy duty concealer. It doesn't set into your fine lines. All you need is simply set it with powder, and it will last all day.

Dolly Wink Eyeshadow in no. 1

The colors are so pretty. it super pigmented, and has a slight glimmers in it. I also love the sponge applicator because it has 2 sides, smaller one and the bigger one. I use this palette everyday, it's so convenient and pretty as well!

And that's it for my November favorites! I'll blog more if I have time. Thanks for reading.
Love you all
