LA Girl Pro Coverage Illuminating Foundation – First Impression/Review

This will be my honest first impression on the LA Girl Pro Coverage Illuminating Foundation which has been raved about in so many youtube videos. So I decided to order it for myself and give it a go.

foto-17-12-16-4-04-15-pm
To me the LA Girl Foundation looks extremely similar to the Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation which made me believe that it might be a good alternative to that. I never used the Make Up Forever one before so I can’t compare them to each other, but that’s because the Make Up Forever one is hard to get your hands on here in germany.
Anyway, let me inform you about the basic fact on this foundation. First of all, this is an illuminating foundation, so this will look dewy and not matte at all. That is also why I hestiated to order it, since I am more of the matte foundation kind of girl even though I have really dry skin especially on my t-zone. The variety of shades in this foundation is amazing considering how inexpensive it is. LA Girl provides you with 15 different shades and a white one, which you can add to any shade to get it lighter.
foto-17-12-16-4-04-28-pm
I didn’t know which shade to get but decided to go with the shade GLM642 – Fair since it’s the lightest one with a bit of yellow undertones, which is the perfect combination for me. I also looked at the shade GLM643 – Porcelain but it appeared way too pink on the pictures on their website.
foto-17-12-16-4-04-55-pm
The first positive thing that I noticed is the packaging, it’s amazing. It appears as if the foundation is high end and quite expensive, when in reality it is a 10$ one. I applied the foundation with a brush on one side of my face and with a damp beauty blender on the other side.
Surprisingly, the coverage is amazing with only a little product. Both sides of my face had an amazing finish, even though the beauty blender side looked a little better but not noticeably if you ask me. It’s quite a dewy foundation, so I decided to set it with some powder to get it a little less dewy. I was shocked that I actually liked the finish of it. It gave me such an healthy glow, especially after I finished my whole make up.foto-17-12-16-4-00-29-pmfoto-11-12-16-4-51-59-pm
I wore this foundation for the whole day and it looked flawless even at the end of the day. So my make up lasted almost 15 hours and looked amazing. I actually think that this foundation is the best I ever used.
I can only recommend this foundation to you, especially to dry skin girls/boys. I do not know how good it performs on someone with oily skin, but there probably are videos or post about that too. I would give this foundation a go, since to me it performed as good as an high end foundation even though it’s only 10 bucks.
foto-11-12-16-4-51-10-pmfoto-11-12-16-4-50-24-pm

Did you try this foundation already, did you like it? Also is there any product that you’d like me to try out next? I am always on the hunt for new good products, so tell me in the comments down below. You can also reach me on my facebook, tumblr, ask.fm, snapchat (@dvlightful) and instagram.
I hope you liked this review/first impression and maybe you have any suggestion how I can make these posts better. I am open for your advice.

Warm Toned Eye Look – Tutorial

First of all, I am sorry that I didn’t post on here for quite some time, but I had some personal stuff that needed to be sorted before I even thought about posting. But here I am back and better than ever. Instead of posting a Haul, I decided to give you a tutorial on my go-to warm toned eye look that I am obsessed with lately. So here you go, my lovelies.

 

I start doing my make up with the eyes, because I tried it both ways and I prefer how my make up looks when I start that way. So first I am going to use my concealer on my eyelids, to get a good base for the upcoming eye shadows. Now I use the second lightest shade out of the Special Occasion palette by bhcosmetics to set the concealer.

I decided to go for a warm toned eye look because I got those three beautiful eyeshadows from ColourPop. The first that I’ll but in the crease is the shade Elixir which a beautiful matte orange. I use the blending brush to blend this from the crease on all over the lid to get more definiton in the crease and a more blended version of this colour on the lid.

Next off is the shade Seeker which is a matte reddish brown, this will be placed on the corner of my eye lids to get the whole look more of a smokey in depth colour. This is such a beautiful colour that compliments the shade Elixir perfectly. This colour is intense when your first put it on but it’s so easy to blend into the perfect mix of intense and natural. I also use this colour on the corner of my waterline to blend everything in perfectly.

The last colour I use on my eyes today is the shade Jinxie which is a beautiful soft warm gold in a pearl finish. This will be padded on my eyelid with my fingers, since that’s how you get the most pigmented pay off of this colour. This finishes the look perfectly and adds a bit more shine on the whole look. I feel so glam whenever I wear this shade. I adore those three colours together.

foto-07-12-16-11-45-39-amNow I am using my Catrice All Matt Plus foundation, like always but this time I am using my oval brush that I ordered on ebay. For me this brush is perfect, your foundation looks flawless and I never applied it quicker. It takes me a few seconds to do my foundation with this, which is a life saver if you ask me.

Now we get to my favorite part when it comes to make up, concealing and contouring. I always use my Catrice Liquid Camouflage concealer and my Wet’n’Wild megaglo contouring palette in the shade Dulce De Leche to set my concealer and to contour my cheekbones and my forehead. Honestly you should get your hands on this, it looks so amazing. I blend my concealer with the Real Techniques Sponge, use a powder brush to set it and a really big fan brush to apply my contour.

This is the part where I probably use the most products, eyelashes. I always curl my eyelashes with an eyelash curler, use my p2 Volume Affair mascara on my upper lashes to get amazing volume, my Manhattan Long & Swing mascara to get even more length and definition and last but not least I use the mascara that I sadly don’t know the brand nor the name of on my under lashes to define and lenghten those. Those products really give me the perfect looking lashes.

foto-07-12-16-11-46-32-amThe last step for my make up today is the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick in the shade Celebrity Skin which is a soft brown nude with a peachy undertone to it. This is the perfect lipstick for the eye look I was going for today.
A little disclaimer here: I do not support Jeffree Star as a person and I purchased this product before I informed myself on the person behind the brand.

Here are the pictures of the finished look:

I hope you guys liked this post and that you like the look I created. I usually never wear eyeshadow but recently ordered those colours on ColourPop to try them out and I fell in love, been wearing them a lot since I got them. What do you prefer, cool or warm toned looks? Let me know in the comments down below, on twitter, on facebook, on tumblr, on ask.fm, on snapchat (@dvlightful) or via email (dvlightful@icloud.com). Also I am always open to take request, what do you want to see next? A lookbook, a specific make up look or an off topic post? Let me know.

In love,

Primark Haul November 2016

Here I am once again with a new post for you all. I went shopping with my parents because I am going to visit Munich with my boyfriend next week and I needed some new jumpers and sweaters since it’s really cold now in germany. That’s why I thought I’d share my purchases with you. Everything in this Haul is from Primark except the two leggings that I bought. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this post.

foto-09-11-16-10-03-52-am

White-Grey-Blue Jumper

foto-09-11-16-10-04-47-amThis was the first clothing item that caught my eye as I went into Primark. Not only did I love the three colours combined but I also loved the material. It’s a really soft and fuzzy jumper, which makes it perfect to wear with something underneath or nothing underneath. I was really impressed with the quality of the jumper since it doesn’t fuzz even though it’s a comfy fuzzy sweater.

This jumper retails for 13€.foto-09-11-16-10-04-18-am

Cold-Shoulder Jumper

foto-09-11-16-10-06-50-amI have about three cold-shoulder t-shirts, so I decided to try out this jumper from Primark. It’s a beautiful grey ripped jumper with shoulder cut outs. Again the quality of this jumper surprised me a lot, but I would’ve prefered the jumper if it was a little more loose instead of skin tight but that’s just my personal preference especially in the winter time. It’s still such a nice piece that can be wearn casually or in the evening with the right accessoires.
This jumper retails for 11€.

foto-09-11-16-10-06-07-am

Creme-Grey Oversized Jumper

foto-09-11-16-10-07-28-amThis jumper is probably the most comfortable one of all of the ones I bought. I already had this in grey for about two years and I was really excited when I found this one in Primark again. It’s a really thin jumper but still manages to keep you warm. This is my favorite one to wear at home or with a pair of leggings since it’s a little longer than the other ones. This one is creme coloured with grey accents and a seam in the front middle which gives the jumper a nice effect. This and the first jumper are probably my favorite, I love them.
This jumper retails for 9€.

foto-09-11-16-10-07-02-am

Light Pink Sweater

This is such a cute sweater. It’s a really light pink sweater with the quote “do more of what makes you happy” stitched on it. I bought this sweater a little oversized since I like sweaters to not be skin tight or anything, especially because I love wearing them with leggings. The inside of this one is so soft that I basically just bought it for that reason and of course I loved what’s stitched on the sweater. Such a beautiful piece for the winter time if you ask me.
This sweater retails for 14€.

foto-09-11-16-10-08-07-am

Fuzzy Scarf

foto-09-11-16-10-21-20-amThis scarf is my favorite purchase of the whole haul, I’ve been wearing it daily ever since I got it. It’s a white/cream one with grey and light brown accents. It’s the most comfortable scarf I ever owned. It’s also the really big kind, which you could even use as a blanket at home if you feel a little cold. The only thing that bothers me a little is that this one fuzzes especially if you wear a black jumper or shirt underneath.. But honestly I do not mind it that much, since it’s so comfortable and keeps me warm.
This scarf retails for 9€.

foto-09-11-16-10-05-32-am

Creme Beanie

I didn’t have a good basic beanie, the only ones I had had something stitched on them so I decided to pick a creme one up.
This beanie retails for 3€.

foto-09-11-16-10-05-02-am

Bow Gloves

Can you go to Primark and not pick some gloves up, especially in the winter time? Because I can’t. I saw those cute black gloves with little white bows on them. Honestly they are so comfortable and cute that I can not wait to wear them when I am in Munich with my boyfriend.
This retails for 2€.foto-09-11-16-10-05-50-am

Socks and two Push-Up Leggings

I had to get myself some socks, because I somehow always lose mine. I just don’t know where they go but they disappear. But nothing about them is special so let’s talk about the Leggings that I bought. I got myself the winter edition of Calzedonia’s push-up leggings since I adore the regular one. My wifey actually recommened me the winter edition because they are so f***ing soft on the inside and keep you warm like no other leggings, that is also why I got myself two instead of just one. Calzedonia really is the place if you look for good non see-through leggings.
The socks retail for 3€ for 7 pairs and the leggings retail for 29,95€.foto-09-11-16-10-07-47-am

That’s it for today, I didn’t go crazy in Primark because I didn’t really have the time and I wanted to just quick shop for some jumpers. Is there anything from Primark that you could recommend? Or any brand that makes amazing jumpers for the winter time? I still am in the need for some more in my collection, so I’d be happy if you tell me about your favorite pieces in the comments down below, on twitter, tumblr, ask.fm, instagram, facebook or snapchat (@dvlightful). You can also always contact me by sending me an e-mail (dvlightful@icloud.com).
