Ideas for make up organization, by ikea

Hi all, just been to Ikea today to buy some new stuff for my home. For quite some time I realized I needed to find a better solution to keep my make up stuff better organized. Well I may just have found the solution today with "FIRA".

This was the one I bought, now I am planning to paint it in a dark colour, maybe black or a really dark brown, then maybe paint some nice patterns in red. There are several configurations for "FIRA" available at Ikea, for about 8€. The next one on my list:

Just check out www.ikea.com / (Portuguese: http://www.ikea.com/pt/pt/catalog/products/50073305).

Well, this was just a though, I guess a lot of folks have the same issue as I have, how to keep it organized and at had ;-).
Hope this helps.

Cheers, Ana

Coastal scents 78 palette - video and some news...

Did a very very small review of the palette:

Agora em português, estive na MAC hoje e tenho 2 boas noticias:
1a segunda-feira estão á venda as novas colecções de natal da MAC, lindas, estive a espreitar as cores e os kits de pinceis (irão custar à volta de 55 euros). (Ver colecções em MAC cosmetics)
2a VAMOS TER MAC PRO EM PORTUGALLLLLLLLLLL, YAAAAAAAAAYYYYY, acho que está tudo dito, mais novidades em 2010 :-).

Cheers, Ana

Coastal scents 78 palette

Finally, after getting a letter from the customs to show the invoice for my Coastal Scents purchase, my 78 palette has arrived safe and sound. Took over a month, but that is because of the customs stuff.
Beautiful colours, very pigmented, here's a picture:

This palette in particular costs $18.95, but there are other palettes, just go to http://www.coastalscents.com.

I'll try to publish a look done with this palette, most likely I'll use colours from this palette for the Gueisha look i'll be doing this saturday :-).

I also bought some brushes (duo fiber, crease brush, blending brush and a normal eye shadow brush. I'll post some comments after using them for a couple of days.

Cheers, Ana

... So excited ...

Well ... this Saturday we have a free theme for the make up class, and I decided to do a Gueisha look. I think it is so beautiful and feminine, I'm happy with my choice.
I've been studying some existing gueisha looks, I will try to keep as much as close to the real gueisha, but I'm deciding if I'll use red or hot pink, or maybe a bit of both. Anyway, I very excited about this, can't wait for the week to finish.

Cheers, Ana

PS: just hoping it will not be rubbish!

My first video

Well, Just added my first video on YouTube, It's a Blue and Pink makeup, no tutorial, just some pics of the final result together with a nice melody.
I love to join pink with blue, I used an old palette by Oriflame, that has a very nice turquoise blue, Pink and violet + some light blue from Sephora's Duo #3.
As a liner I used electro marine blue by Sephora.
Mascara: Divide and multiply by the Body Shop.
Foundation: Maybeline's Super Stay Silky. Used a light concealer cream by makeup forever to light up my eyelids and then used MAC's Prep+Prime transparent to set it (I'm very happy about this product)

To enhance the colours a little bit, I used Sephora's glitter eye primer, then tapped with colour over itrabs the pigments to the lid, final effect was nice.

Cheers, Ana

segunda-feira, 5 de outubro de 2009


Well ... I've already posted my e-mail application for a professional makeup workshop, I'm starting it next 10th October, and I'll be spending my saturday's afternoons for the next 6 weeks dedicated to this. Apparently there's a 8 day internship at a TV studio, not really sure I can do that due to my job :-(.

In the meantime, I'm using the web to checkout some tutorials, I found a great blog: http://makeupbytiffanyd.blogspot.com/

Have fun...

PS: I've finally ordered a Coastal Scents (http://www.coastalscents.com/) 78 colour palette, I was really curious after some great reviews I read online ... hmmm ... I guess I'll post something about it once I get it.

Learn about makup...

Well ... I think that after the disaster I had on my wedding's makeup (ended up (re)doing it myself), I decided that maybe I could do better, so my goal is to learn about the art of makeup and become a makeup artist :P. Also, I'll include a list of stuff I want to have...

Cheers, Ana
