I DO NOT NEED SLEEP

Oh my. HELP!
Today was crazy!
So basically exactly NOW I've been awake for 24h.Yep, right.
As I was finishing Japanese homework this night I noticed I had no more than 4h of sleep left so I decided to stay awake 'til uni the next morning. It is 6am now, I have not been sleeping at all and I feel horrible BUUUT at least I had time to do my make-up today which will shock my fellow students as they only know me bare faced, HA!

A guick "what's on my face": shimmery bronze e/s on the lid, matt greyish colour through the crease and under the lower lash line, black liner and LUSH lip colour in DECISIVE.
DONE




XOXO
Alex

PS: One of my friends once said (after a looong night of partying and a long morning/noon of working) "Alex does not need sleep, she just needs make-up!" Haha, true!
PSS: There is not enough concealer in this world to make me look awake!
PSSS: I feel horrible
PSSSS: I am WAY too old for that!

OVER.AND.OUT!

BLACK AND RED OMBRE NAILS

This pic was taken MONTHS ago, yes, months! This is how much of a horrible blogger I am!

If you'd please tell me I am a bad blogger I might change this habit. Maybe not tho 'cause I tend to forget things like that quite quickly.

ANYWAYS: I do still love ombre nails. This black and red design is one of my faves ever!
I used a sorta fishnet to create the pattern and it's super easy (just make sure you use a light hand applying/stippling the colour onto your nails!) 

(IF you've never done ombre nails here's a step-by-step I did! If you want any pattern just place some lace/fishnet or anything on your completely dry nail before applying your colour!)

FANCY GOLD LUSH LUST

Aloha!
I love eye liners. Blue, black, glittery, pink ones,.. I don't care as long long as they are sharp and bold!
So here is one I wore a while ago: plain black gel liner and a gold line as thick as the black one above (actually one of the LUSH eyeliners).

Of course you can as well just wear the gold one on it's own or replace it with another colour you dig! 

I pretty much like it for christmas time or any other fancy occasion

Alex

HALLOWEEN

Oh, hi folks!
If you follow the incredible Letz Makeup  you might have already seen this look.
She's one of my fave youtubers out there and I especially love her grungy and weird and creepy looks.
So a few days ago I decided to recreate this special one just for fun, this is how it turned out

This was my first take on it and I think I did pretty well, my friend Thomas   edited it for me (thanks<3)



As I had no idea on how to dress up for halloween I thought I'd just wear the creepy skull again, it took me an hour and I used Eulenspiegel airbrush makeup together with conventional makeup.

Crappy quality but you get the idea!
 Took me about 35mins.

No, no, no, no, no.

Hi?
Yeah, hello!
I.Am.Rubbish.
But I am back so throw a few more images into the world wide web!
This shoot with Thomas Grimm was so super long ago that I don't even remember when we shot it,...
The make-up was some grey and black and brown smokey eye blended into the bridge of the nose and some frost/shimmer brownish lipstick.



lots of love to y'all!

RECENT WORK

Hellooooooooo girls (and maybe a few boys)!
Just wanted to show you the most recent shoot I've been working on with my friend Thomas Grimm!  
I actually did not have to do much as our model Camilla was beautiful anyway!
She's wearing OCC's ANIME on her lips, a bit of mascara and much highlighter around her top  lip, cheeks, on her nose and forehead and in the inner corners of her eyes.
I was basically done within 15 minutes!

Birthday Girl

Oh wow, I haven't posted anything in about two months and I feel  a bit guilty.
I don't even know why, just haven't been in the mood of  doing anything and I've been busy with work, too.
Anyways, yesterday (2nd July) I turned 22.
I have been hating my birthdays since the day I turned 18. So I woke up after having the first nightmare in months with a massive headache and in the worst mood. 
Fortunately when I went for dinner with friends it got better and I/we ended up having much fun!
I am very grateful for being able to call those people my friends.
We took millions of pictures, unfortunately there are none where one could properly see the make-up I was wearing so I will just describe it quickly:
Bold black eyeliner, no shadow, OCC demure on the lips and lashes (ardell babies).

Have a great day! xoxo

DEBORAH LIPPMANN

Hello, ladies!
My last  proper post on this blog is more that one month ago,... Sorry.
Uhm, yeah, Deborah Lippmann! Awesome stuff, I tell you! She's got so many beautiful and unique shades, it's unbelievable. This one is a sheer peachy pinky glittery varnish that looks beautiful on a nude base or on it's own. I usually apply two layers of it on top of my french manicure.

THIS IS MY BLOG, BUT...

Is there anything you want me to do in future?
I have a lot of ideas but I actually don't know if you are even interested in seeing that.
So here is your chance, if you have any ideas on what I should blog about you can leave me a comment.
Different looks, brands, "loves and hates",  videos, challanges maybe?

Kisses and hugs!
Alex

THIS SHIT IS CREEPY

Hey folks,
here's something that has been waiting to be published on this blog for such a long time!
It's my friend's and mine second video together and it's been a tough one to shoot.
Imagine this situation:

Part 1:
 
Thomas:"Hey, Alex!"
Me:"Yeah, what's up?"
Thomas:"It's almost Halloween! Let's shoot a super creepy video!"
Me:"Cool, sounds fun! Let's do it!!"

About a week later:

Thomas:"Hey Alex! Get in the car, it's getting dark and really cold, let's drive to the forest to shoot the video in which you will just be wearing a  nightdress!"
Me: "WOW! This sounds like such a great idea!"

A few minutes later:

Me: freezing quite badly.

Part 2:

Thomas:" Hey Alex! Get your friend and let's go to that creepy and ruinous and fucking creepy as shit house in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night!"
Me:" Oh great! You always come up with such great ideas! Let's do it! It might be 7 degrees outside and I will be having to stay in the cold for several hours half-naked and freeze to death but let's get on it!"

Me after a few minutes: FUCKING FREEZING TO DEATH!

Well, yup! We made it. 
Didn't get to finish it 'til Halloween tho. Which is why we waited to release it on the following Halloween.
Here's the result, if it does not scare the shit out of you I am very disappointed in ALL OF YOU! And me. And Thomas. And basically the whole wide world. 



If you are having problems with this video try this link on youtube or visit Thomas Grimm's page for more motion pictures.

Take care! 
xoxo

CRAZY RUMORS


Hi!

I've been crazy for CRAZY RUMOR's lip balms lately!
Got them the day they arrived at my "local" vegan store in Dortmund, Germany, and I must say they kicked my to date fave chap stick by yaoh off the throne.

A few side notes:
-nut-free
-gluten-free
-38 different smells/flavours
-cruelty-free, vegan

They: smell amazing, also taste sweet, their "products do contain Shea Butter & Macadamia Seed Oil, which are not known to cause any tree nut allergic reactions" (quote on FAQ)  and I just love them


Got MYSTERY, GRAPE BUBBLE, BERRY BUBBLE and BUBBLE GUM.

Thanky for your attention<3

FOTD

Well, not really. 
I wore this "look" a few days ago so it is more of a "face of past day" but anyway:
eyeliner, defined brows, pale face and berry coloured blush. Oh and straight hair!
Usually don't wear my hair straight, usually don't do anything to my hair really! Just 'cause I am too lazy I just let them air dry and hope they look okay (which they don't!).
That's all I guess=)

ALVA PIGMENTS PT. TWO

Hello!
Uhm, you know I have this real annoying habit of not finishing what I start. I do have so many pictures up on blogspot waiting for me to put a text underneath it but everytime I try to start writing I get interrupted and end up doing NOTHING. Just like now, I started something completely different, got bored and started blogging instead! But this is at least something that I actually shall be doing so it's okay I guess...
So this product has been in my kit for a few months now and I only used it once! In my first and only video  so far and I wore it on my eyes and lips (wooho!).
It's a pigment-turret by Alva (I'm a big fan of their pigments) and all of the colours are highly pigmented and shimmery and honestly awesome!
I wore SUMPTUOUS GRAPE in my video that I recorded in autumn cause it just looks phenomenal in that season of the year. (Just a quick side note: one post or especially this post already takes me 60mins as I stalk people on Facebook, puzzle, watch Nip/Tuck, google pictures, chat on whatsapp and eat. This is how easily I get interrupted by just everything! So please forgive me for the lack new posts although I have much to post about!)  

Yellow: SOLAR GEM, Blue: PROMISE, Red: SUMPTUOUS GRAPE, Green AUTUMN JOY.

It's so handy that you can put the single jars together so 1st you are less likely to lose one of them and 2nd it's easier to store!

SOLAR GEM, AUTUMN JOY, STUMPTUOUS GRAPE, PROMISE.

CHINA GLAZE- RUBY PUMPS

This has been my fave varnish for this winter season! It's just gorgeous and a pain in the arse to get off! But hey, still worth it!
It's by China Glaze, as you might already tell, and the colour is 'RUBY PUMPS'.
A lovely red with lot's of sparkle to it but not as sheer as I expected it to be, which is brilliant! You'll be good to go with two coats of it, I personally prefer three coats but that's totally up to you!
Not mush too say, honestly, China Glaze is always amazing.

GIVEAWAY TIME- GLAMGLOW (CLOSED)

Hi there!
This will be my second giveaway as I am in love with this product!
Got it a few weeks ago and already ran out of it and need to get another jar so I thought why not share?
I usually do not repurchase a product unless I am a 100% convinced of it and I am totally in love with this one.
It has got french sea clay, volcanic rock, green tea leaves and other cool stuff in it which makes your skin tingle! There are no acids in this product so the tingling effect comes directly from your skin as this product "revives" it in form of helping more blood flow through it! It actually works and you will feel it the second you apply this mask to your face (PLUS IT SMELLS DIVINE!)
This is what their website says:

  • Leaves skin noticeably radiant and glowing.
  • Activates moisturizing collagen synthesis.
  • Provides gentle resurfacing exfoliation.
  • Helps to leave skin smoother, brighter and softer.
  • Provides tighter skin texture and tighter pores.
  • Helps to provide a more youthful appearance.
  • Absorbs impurities without removing natural oils.
  • Helps to protect against free radical damage.



So yeah, I will be giving away one jar of this little wonder to one of you!
This product is not sponsored whatsoever, it's value is 50€/70$ and as always NOT tested on animals PLUS vegan!



Rules to enter:

MUST be 18+ (as I have to ask you for your address) or have your parent's permission
If you like leave a comment and please subscribe to my blog!

GIVEAWAY ENDS on the 10th of March at 12pm CET. Winner will be picked randomly via Rafflecopter!
I will send you a mail asking for your address and you will have three days to reply otherwise I will pick another one!  

This giveaway is open worldwide (please keep in mind I am not responsible for any additional costs) but please make sure your country provides shipping make-up 'n' stuff!

Well, this is all for now! If you have any ideas on what you'd like to see or whatever (I'm always open for suggestions!) let me know I'd love to hear what you say!

a Rafflecopter giveaway Much love!

Hi, Hi, Ho!

Hello!
This was my last shoot with my friend Thomas and our gorgeous model Yasmin in Nov, '12.
I did two looks on her and this one is the second. As we had a more grungy make-up in the beginning I thought a classic look would be the best on her and she looks just fabulous if you ask me!
I kept the eyes simple with just a beige eyeshadow on the lids and some winged out gel liner plus a pale shimmery eyeshadow in the inner corners of the eyes.
On her lips I used my trusted OCC lip tar in 'NSFW'.

FEELING YOUNGER

Hi y'all!
Highlights, shiny and dewy skin is about to come to us in spring/summer '13!
So this is a highlighter that I picked up a couple of weeks ago, it's by LUSH and the colour is 'FEELING YOUNGER'.
I immediately fell in love with the colour as it has a slightly  peachy/goldish undertone that makes your skin look beautiful as light hits it!
It comes in this little pot (20ml) so it has no applicator (please be hygienic! Don't stick your fingers in it,...) like the BENEFIT one has and I'd probably prefer it to be in a tube that you can simply squeeze but there comes the point of it being still a LUSH product and LUSH place value on their packaging being recycled and recyclable. So most of the products come in glass pots or without packaging.
To be honest, I do like this product a lot, it is beautiful! BUT: I can not wear it over or under foundation (or even mixed with my foundation) 'cause it will look caky. It does, however, look amazing on bare skin! My skin is really confused at the moment as it won't decide whether it will get to it's normal state or not (MEH!) but if you have beautiful skin anyway and can drop foundation this product must find it's way into your make-up kit!
On the back it even says you should mix it with your fave moisturizer and you can use it to eliminate under eye circles but I do not believe in that.
As far as I can tell it has no artificial smell, never tested on animals and is vegan<3


In this picture I applied the product above the line so you can see the difference (with flash)


Thanks<3
Alex

PS: I'll be having a giveaway soon! Stay tuned

ACROSS THE UNIVERSE

Happy late new year, folks!
The last time I was in Frankfurt I got myself this beautiful varnish by Deborah Lippmann.
The colour is ACROSS THE UNIVERSE and it is basically a sheer dark blue varnish with blue and green and silver glitter to it. Absolutely beautiful on top of a dark (navy blue, green, black, grey) base but a nightmare to get off!
