Beauty Around The World: Paris♥


Who doesn't wish they were in The City of Love right about now! lol I've never been to the other side of the pond, but if I ever go someday.. I'd love to visit Paris. It's rich with style, history, & beautiful architecture. It's also one of the most expensive cities in the world.. but more importantly, (to me anyway) it's one of the most romantic cities in the world. I know there's more to Paris, than the Eiffel Tower, but  it's one of the first things I think about when Paris comes to mind.


Eyes Parisian Lights. 

[Sedona Lace Palette 88 Matte Palette] Refer to the image above to see the colors I used, and where I placed them.
[Pink/Light Purple Glitter] Applied under the inner lower lash line over a bit of clear lash glue. It's clearly not the safest thing to put anywhere near your eyes lol but I couldn't resist. I wanted to incorporate the city lights. I easily removed the glitter with a makeup remover wipe, right after pics.
[Angelic Wink - Catty Maria Lashes] I found these in a little novelty store recently & gawsh they're beautiful! They're so full & super soft. I went back a couple days later to stock up even though, I'm not one to spend $4 on a pair of lashes. Call me loca! But sadly, there weren't anymore. 



Lips Macaroon Pink. 
 
[NYX Narcissus] I thought this pink was pretty perfect for this look! I wanted to keep the look pretty bright & far from ordinary. This super bright pink, surprises me every time I wear it. The formula's not the longest lasting & as you can tell it's kind of streaky but the color is just WOW.



Nails Metallic French Tips.
 
A twist to the typical french tip manicure. I'll admit, I wasn't too crazy about this mani. I tend top play it safe when it comes to nails, but this time I went a bit outside of what I normally do.. & change it scary to me. lol

[EBALAY Baby Pink Matte] This color is beautiful! The sticker on the bottom says "Rose Water". It's a beautiful light baby pink with a matte finish. I got full coverage after 2 coats.. which is pretty standard/good. Both these polishes were sent to me by KKCenterHK & you can find additional info on this pink matter one, here.
[X&D Nail Art Polish in Litchi] This is a nail art polish with a fine brush. Now, I'm used to using the $1-$2 nail art polishes from the drugstores. I always find the brushes a bit difficult to use, for some reason. So I always end up using my own art brushes. This brush though, is amazing. It has great hand line control & it's really precise. I'm crazy about the metallic color too! I can already tell I'll be using this one a lot. I hardly ever say this but this one is def. worth the price tag. The pink one though, I don't think so. lol Additional info on this polish here.

You can't see the whole art brush effect in my Paris nails, so I did some random zebra strokes here to show ya'll!  


Hope you enjoyed the look! Thanks so much for stopping by & reading or even just looking at the pics. I appreciate it! Btw, I'm on Instagram now! Another way we can stalk each other! Yayy lol. Feel free to follow me! Have a great week, ya'll! xx
