Bambi eyes with a cut crease

flutter lashes cut crease bambi

Hi Everyone!

So for this look I wanted to create a subtle cut crease ( it’s named a cut crease because of the sharp lines that define the desired shape, there are also other variations of a cut crease) with added drama! You can wear this look without the lashes to get a more subtle look suited for the daytime. After I created this look I unfortunately did not have a party to attend so I just took the lashes off and went shopping, haha!

I used Flutter lashes, Mink lashes, in the style ‘Natalie’ to get my Bambi eyes effect. My own eyes are not that big but with lashes like this you can definitely create that illusion without going overboard with multiple layers of mascara. For this look I didn’t need a coat of mascara because the lashes are already super thick. The great think about Mink lashes is that although they may appear ‘heavy’ they are actually super light weight and you can’t feel them at all when you’re wearing them. In case it wasn’t already obvious, I love them!!


Here are the steps to getting this look:

To create the cut crease I used a black pencil first to define the line and create a sharp V- shape at the end ( I used Motives cosmetics, Onyx, for this ).

After that I used all Motives cosmetics eye shadows and went over the created line with a deep brown color called ‘Vino’. Afterwards, blend it well into the crease, but only at the top, never below the cut crease itself.

I then added a subtle color to my eyelids, I used ‘Vanilla’ all over the lid and in the inner corner I also used some of the color ‘Creme Fresh’ which is a shade lighter and will open up my eyes some more.

On my brow bone I used the color ‘Pearl’ and underneath I added a warmer brown color called ‘Cinnamon spice’ to add some warmth to this look.

When you’re done with the eyeshadow you can now curl your lashes and add mascara or falsies of your choice!

I also filled in my brows and made them a bit bolder than usual using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in ‘Brunette’.
I personally loooove the Brow Wiz line, it’s my favorite of all eyebrow pencils because it’s so easy to use and has great natural colors that blend well with your own natural color.

Here are some pics of the complete look!

For the rest if the look I used Motives Cosmetics foundation in ‘Linen’ and used the Color perfection Quad to shape my face. The blusher is called ‘So Peachy’. For the lips I first used a red shade but quickly decided that would be too much, haha. And so I went for a neutral tone and used the color ‘Pink Champagne’, op top of that lipgloss called ‘Preciosa’ which is a sheer peachy color.

Hope you love it!! If you have any questions, comment below!

Silver and Brown Smoky eye. Perfect Holiday look

silver brown smoky eye holiday holidays

Hey Loves!!


Made this look a little while back and decided to post this on my blog so you can see the large pictures. I think it’s perfect for the Holiday season and with Christmas day and new years eve yet to come you can use these pictures as inspiration!



What I used:  Motives Cosmetics mineral eye shadows ‘Vogue’ and ‘Allure’ with Urban Decay Naked palette 1 ‘Buck’ in the crease and ‘Virgin’ on the brow bone. Underneath I used Motives Cosmetics ‘Medium brown’ eyebrow pencil as an eyeliner and ‘Onyx’  eye pencil on the waterline. The amazingly popular false lashes in the style ‘Noir Fairy’ are from House of lashes. For my eyebrows I used Anastasia Beverly Hills  ‘caramel’ Brow wiz and her Brow powder duo in ‘Medium Ash/Brown.



To extra glam up this look you could also add silver glitter on the eyelids to make it ‘pop’ even more!!


Happy Holidays Lovelies!!!

Luxury for Princess extensions, review

luxury for princess chocolate brown



The extensions arrive in a professional looking package with a handy manual on how to clip them in, the set I’m wearing is 220 grams,
which is their Princess super deluxe set.  The color is number 4, Chocolate brown.
The extensions are shiny, super thick and long. Before wearing them I cut a few inches off first to make it look more natural with my own hair. I personally think that makes them look even thicker, but without cutting them they look gorgeous as well!

The clips are well sown to the band and feel firm when clipped in your hair. When wearing them I even straightened my own hair and they didn’t slip and slide but stayed in place all day. When your hair is naturally super straight you might want to tease the section where you’re clipping them in first.

After wearing them all day they still look great! It wasn’t tangled at all.

If you’re looking for thick high quality extensions I can personally recommend ordering these babies. They ship worldwide and you can use the code ‘linda’ at checkout for a special discount!


What do you think? Do they look gorgeous or what?!
