Face of the day and jewellery

Finally a picture of my face! (Finally, she says. *cough*) My skin still looks awful, but better than it did last month. I've been doing dead sea salt masks every other night - they burn like hell, but they're good for your skin. At least I can see an improvement. On the alternate nights, I've been doing sheet masks (Kosé Clearturn ones) which I shall review some other time.

And now, pictures! (click to enlarge)


The pictures look a bit redder than I do in real life, don't ask me why. Strange lightning, I guess. And please ignore my strange expression, it's hard to find the right angle for pictures. ^^;

I was wearing:
face:
- Missha Perfect Cover M BB Cream in #13
- Alverde Concealer stick with tea tree oil in #01
- Rimmel Stay Matte powder (I forgot the #, but it is the lightest one available, although unfortunately, it has a bit of a yellow tinge. Plus, as much as I like how it really keeps my face matte (I don't know why I look shiny in the pictures, I suspect it to give me bumps.)
- p2 blush in Dreamy Berry

eyes: 
-Maquillage Dual Glow Eyes in BR275 (I love this eyeshadow duo! It looks really nice and natural despite the sparkles, and you can wear it every day - it fits every occasion. Plus, it's super easy to apply. <3)
- Kiko liquid eyeliner in turqoise
- essence liquid metal glam eyeliner in dark blue
- Makemania Dense Black Liner in black (on my upper waterline)
- my good old golden Integrate liner (that is getting smaller and smaller - and it seems to have been discontinued! >___<) on my lower waterline
- Majolica Majorca Lash Gorgeous Wing Neo mascara (duh)

lips: 
- I started off with Bourjois lipgloss in framboise something, but it was too pink and glittery with the eye-makeup, so I just applied a lip balm later on.
I've been getting 2 compliments for my eyeliner, btw. They made me really happy. (^.^)

And this is the bracelet I bought last week and have been wearing ever since - with adjusted turqoise nail polish and make-up. Isn't it super pretty? And only 4€! O.o

Nail pics

Hello! :)

You were probably waiting for make-up pictures, but all I can upload for now are nail pics. My brother helped me with getting some stuff from our Mum's camera and my cellphone on my USB, and he is also my new official nail art photographer now. xD

Kiko nail polish in 298 and the limited Anna Sui nail polish I bought in Japan in 108

p2 nail polish in 320 (turquoise) and Catrice nail polish in 270 (dark blue) with the Anna Sui polish to blur the line in the middle of the nail

Wow, the picture quality still sucks. ^^;
Kiko is an Italian brand with some stores in Berlin - I've been buying several of their nail polishes lately, as they're really good quality and only 3,90€. <3
p2 and Catrice are German drugstore brands, really cheap, with p2 polishes at 1,55€ and Catrice at 2,55€. Unlike Kiko, they don't have as many bright and shimmery colours, though, but still, good colour choice and quality for a very small price!
As you can see, I really love my Anna Sui nail polish, too. xD

I promise I will update soon. Really, I am very sorry, but university is stressful, and my computer, camera etc. aren't working the way I need them to. I do have many pictures taken, though.

In the meantime, you might want to take a look at this blog full with beautiful nail designs, my favourite being this one.
