Blog Interview with Rebecca

After a very long pause of blog interviews, I finally had the chance to interview another one of my favourite bloggers! :) This time I interviewed the lovely Rebecca from "From Roses", I´ve been following her blog for some time now and she literally never let me down, whether it comes to her content or her amazing pictures. She´s one of those blog, that get you all excited when they update and also only post interesting posts that you enjoy to read :)
1. Why did you start blogging?
It was during my summer before my third year of university and I just wanted a place to be able to write more about the things that I was currently loving and doing, over time it progressed into more of a beauty blog.

2.What do you enjoy most about it?
The creative freedom that you have with blogging is incredible, I find it incredibly fulfilling and I love getting to know like minded people.

3. What are your go-to makeup products at the moment?

4. What´s the best beauty tip you have ever received?
Change your pillowcases regularly if you´ve got spot prone skin.

5. What´s your favourite fashion trend at the moment?
The worst question to ask me ha, I´m not a follower of fashion trends at all so I´m just going to say something I´m enjoying which are camel coats.

6. Lipstick or Lipgloss?
Lipstick!

7. What´s the best makeup product you have ever bought?
YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat

8. Are there any products that you would never ever repurchase?
I can´t think of anything off the top of my head apart from possibly the Butter London polishes because they´re not worth the price at all.

9. What are the top 3 thing on your bucket list?
Go to Copenhagen, Live in Paris and Have a office for "A Little Opulent". 

10. What are you most looking forward in 2015?
Being able to push myself further with work and seeing what happens with my blog and I´m just generally excited about life this year :)

Naked 2 Palette: Valentines Day Inspired Makeup

Valentines Day is right ahead of us, and whether you´re going on a date with your boyfriend or you´re just going out with some of your friends, this Look will definitely suit every occasion :). Before I get fully started I just want to apologise for some blurry pictures :( Don´t know what was wrong with the camera, but whatever!
 Products I used:
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Transparent
Catrice Defining Blush in 020 Rose Royce
Tanya Burr Lipgloss in Afternoon Tea


The Base:
1. Having oily skin adds the need of applying primer to my daily routine. The `TBS Instablur Primer` is a really good one, it helps my foundation to stay on the whole day, controlles shine for 12h, reduces appearance of pores, and alot more wonderful things.
2. Then I applied my MAC Studio Fix Foundation in NC15. It covers my skin very well, but doesn´t dry it nor does it look cakey.
3. I recently changed my "concealer routine" , the Fit Me Concealer in 10 is too dark for my pale skin, so I had to add the EverFresh Concealer in Light Beige. Those both together look very nice and add a lovely light beige glow to my under-eye area.
4. To make everything last the whole day I powdered my face with the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Transparent
5. It wouldn´t really be Valentines Day suitable, if I wouldn´t add some rosy cheeks, and to add this I applied the Catrice Defining Blush in 020 Rose Royce.

The Eyes:
How the post title says the only thing, that I´m using for this eyemakeup look is the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette.
1. The first colour I used was Tease and I applied it all over my crease, using the Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush, and don´t use too much, less is more sometimes! :)
(the best way to do this is to keep your eyes open, because your skin moves when your eyes are closed and you obviously have your eyes opened the whole day ;)

2. Then I used the colour YDK and applied it all over my lid using the shadow brush end  that comes with the palette.

3. And the last colour you´ll need is Chopper, which you apply to the inner and outer corner of your eyelid to brighten up your eyes :)
To apply this I also used the brush that comes with the palette, but this time I used the other end.

(This is an older picture, but it shows quite good how the eyemakeup look should look like in the end)
4. To finish the eyemakeup off, you can add eyeliner (but that´s up to you), Mascara and some brow gel or powder whatever you use :)

And the eyes are done!

The Lips:
The last week I added two new lip productes to my little collection and how you can see it´s a MAC Frost Lipstick in Angel, which is a really pinky nude colour, and I also got the Tanya Burr Lipgloss in Afternoon Tea, I watch Tanya´s channel weekly and when she announced that she´ll launch a beauty collection I was very excited, long story cut short, I finally ordered this rose glossy lipgloss from amazon :)

1. Firstly I applied the MAC Lipstick and then abit of Lipgloss all over the lips to make them look glossy and kissable ;)

And this is the full Makeup Look :) It´s basically just a glittery-pink eye makeup, with light rose cheeks and a pink-nude glossy lip :) 
I really hope you enjoyed this tutorial and will have a lovely Valentines Day, no matter with whom you spend it! 
Lots of love xxx
