Spring/Summer is the perfect time to experiment with makeup, the prefect time to add a pop of colour to your look! And what better shade to try then aqua blue or turquoise, the shade that represents the sky and water?
You can wear aqua as you would wear a regular black or brown eye liner, or inside the lower waterline for an interesting accent.

Some of you may remember the feature about the products that I’ve chosen for my Mum, and here are the products that she picked up herself.
The other day my Mum called me to tell that she had some important work events and she needed some makeup products (she doesn’t use makeup on a daily basis). I told her that she could pick anything she wanted from my “collection”.

I was in the mood for a navy eye makeup look so here is what I was wearing yesterday.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Aqua Primer

I am currently away for two weeks, finally not for work, I can spend time with my family & friends and relax. I did not want to take a lot of makeup with me (mostly because I have too many other things), and since a lot of you are always asking what products I take with me (and I love similar posts myself), I thought I’d show you.

I’m not gonna lie, I am super jealous when I see girls with long, thick lashes…Unfortunately, it is not the case with mine. It could be worse, so I should not complain really.
But there are certain things I can do about it. I have never tried lash extensions for some reason and wearing false lashes every day is not an option, for me at least.
So here are the products that I use to get a make my lashes look decent:
First of all, I curl my lashes with shu uemura lash curlers, they open up the eyes and the curl lasts all day long. It is a great investment.
