Skincare Routine 2017 – Dry Skin

I alread posted my Skincare Routine in 2016, but I discovered some new products since then. So I decided to just show you my updated one. I didn’t really care about Skincare back in the day, so I never did anything to take care of my skin.
BUT you should never ever do what I did, because I maybe thought my skin was amazing but my current Skincare Routine helps my skin to be even better. Skincare is so important, not only to make your skin look better without any make up on but to also improve how your make up looks on top of it.

I am always on the look out for good skincare products, so maybe leave your holygrail ones in the comments down below? I’d love to get my hands on new stuff to improve my skin even more.
Make sure to follow me on all my social medias, they are linked in the sidebar of my blog. If you want to be uptodate with me, then you better go ahead and add me on snapchat, since I post there the most. My snapchat is dvlightful.

Soft Valentine’s Day Look – Tutorial

I finally have another Tutorial for you guys. I know those were lacking/missing before I created my youtube channel, but doing a Tutorial video is way easier than writing every tiny bit down. Especially because the posts would be hella long.
So I hope you enjoy my Soft Valentine’s Day Look, maybe it is a look your enjoy. Keep in mind that I’m not a professional make up artists, I am currently still trying to learn to do my make up better and better each day.

What are your plans for Valentine’s Day? Do you even care about that day? I think I personally won’t be “celebrating” it since I rather spend a nice date night with my boyfriend on a regular day instead of having it forced to be on that specific day.
Anyway, let me know what your make up is going to be like if you celebrate it or if you just want to glam yourself up on that day. All my social medias are linked in my sidebar, make sure to to check me out there and be up to date with what I do. I probably use Snapchat the most, so add me there it’s dvlightful !

I decided to show you how I create my Go To Make Up Look. This is the look I prefer when I want my make up to look a little more fancy, but not like going out to the club fancy.

dvlightful on Youtube

This isn’t going to be a long post, that’s also why you’ll get two posts next week. But I quickly wanted to announce that I finally got myself my own youtube channel.
My youtube channel is going to be just like this blog…all about make up and fashion. There’ll be lots of Tutorials, Lookbooks, First Impressions, Reviews and some off topic stuff like tags or vlogs.
Everyone that subscribes helps me a lot, because I always wanted to take my blog to youtube as well but I’ve always been too scared to upload something but the amazing people in my life encouraged me to finally start my dream, which is youtube. So me finally uploading on my own channel is such a big deal to me, maybe it won’t be to you though.

I hope you like my first ever youtube video, feel free to subscribe, like and comment. You can also leave advice in the comments down below and in the comments on my video. I am just starting out and want to improve my youtube skills.
I am so excited to see what is going to come for my youtube channel and for this blog. I already have so much planned.
Instead of posting all my social media now, please look in my sidebar on my blog, there’s is everything linked that you might need to keep in touch with me.

In love,

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,
