This is a little tribute to my Italian friend Paola (@Alhrayth on twitter) and her beauty blog which is one of my favourite reads. Paola has a blog entitled 'I might not be skinny, I might not be super rich, but I like to look nice, or in shorter words http://butiliketolooknice.blogspot.com/. I absolutely love her makeup looks and they are a great source of inspiration for me.
She just doesn't do makeup like I do, just for the blog, or just to use a makeup palette, she shares her real makeup of the day looks which she has actually worn during that day. Her makeup looks are colourful, funky and never boring. To top it all off, she also does stunning nail art, she has an amazing camera, the colours are always vivid and everytime I look at her photos taken in her leafy veranda, it makes me feel like I am abroad, myself.
I am very lucky to have Paola as one my readers and together we decided to do a little challenge. We surprise each other by recreating a makeup look which we have seen on each other's blogs and post it at the same time, tonight at 2030, which is in, eeekk 16 minutes. Apologies for the rush of this post.
Today, I wanted to recreate her 'Katia Bachelorette' look. I could have cheated and used some funky lashes with crystals on them but I really really wanted to have a go at her genius glittery eyeliner.
face: boots no.7 Intelligent Mousse Foundation in shade 'Blondie 20'
lips: sleek pout paint in 'rosette', applied the Jenni (@uknailpolish) way, with a sponge tip applicator. I love Jenni as well <3
eyes: gosh trio smoky brown, nyx white/grey/black, mac vanilla, eylure 101 lashes,
collection 2000 glitter eyeliner in glitz and and and 2 faced shad ass,
I hope you like it :)
Paola has an amazing blog. The only thing I don't like about it is that there are not enough people to appreciate her makeup looks and nail art. Go check her out now and tell her Liloo sent you xx
