FIRST MAKE UP TUTORIAL - AWKWARD!

     Hi guys!

     So, here's what's new!
     Due to a crazy amount of requests, I finally made the make up tutorial so many of you have been asking for!
     First of all, let me just say I felt pretty awkward filming this. Also, it didn't turn out quite as I wanted to! Those who know me know I have a terrible sight, so the only way for me to do any kind of make up is to stand an inch away from the mirror (I'm not even kidding), so there's no chance I'd be filming staring at the camera. So the only way for me to make this was if I placed the camera in my diagonal, but STILL I had to move a bit away from the mirror. This obviously jeopardized a bit my final result, but it didn't turn out to look that bad.
     Feel free to watch it, as well as any other videos on the account!


Here's a list of all the items I used in the video:

KIKO Skin Evolution Concealer – 01 Natural Pink:

SEPHORA Mattifying Compact Foundation – 26 Peach:

KIKO High Pigmentation Eyeshadow – 127 Satin White:

KIKO High Pigmentation Eyeshadow – 180 Mate Coal Black:

H&M Dipliner:

RIMMEL LONDON Volume Flash x10 Mascara:

LIME CRIME Velvetine Liquid Matte Lipstick – Red Velvet:

H&M Brushes
For powder bronzer:
Light Eyeshadow:
Dark Eyeshadow:


     Thank you so much for watching and reading, send me your thoughts!

Rock on,

DEVIL CHILD




     Hi guys!
     Here's my latest look. This outfit is obviously all about Black Hope Curse. These are two of the pieces they kindly sent me, the Mystic Boxy crop tee, and the Devil Child leggins (you can obviously tell where the name of the look comes from)!
     First of all, what I really like about them is that the cotton the most soft and light thing! It's super comfortable! And secondly, the crop top is not super short, it's just the exact length I like! Both of the pieces look great with practically anything, and the designs are very grungy, specially the leggins! And another thing I like about them is that the prints have great quality and they're not super white, but they're a midtone grey! How awesome is that? They're really one of a kind clothing pieces, you won't find anything like them that easily!
     So overall, I fucking love them!! Hype them on my lookbook page! And also don't forget to check all other links on the side bar!

     Rock on,

NECROMANCY COSMETICA: LIPSTICKS REVIEW


     Hi guys! How have you been?

     Yep. I've been *again* away for way too long. But I bring you news!

     So a few months ago Necromancy Cosmetica from Puerto Rico sent me six wicked matte lipsticks for me to try on and create new looks to feature in my shootings!
     I decided to gather three different looks I created with three of those colors in this post. The cutie Des sent me six shades of matte lipsticks: "Witches Brew" a super bright purple, "Segunda Plaga" a deep earthly green tone - which, by the way, I feel like it's becoming their great hit on social media, or at least that's my opinion, "Necromatia" a deep vivid blue, "Martyr's Blood" a deep dark burgundy (I keep saying the word "deep" but there's no other way of saying it got damn it), "Naked Witch" a soft grey, and "Deadly Nightshade" a creamy baby blue.
     In the first picture (from left to right) I'm wearing "Naked Witch". If you're looking for a simple look with an edgy touch, that's your color! Even though it's a light color, it's super easy and simple to apply, as you don't need to paint your lips over and over again to get the actual color! I actually only needed to spread it two times, and it's also really easy to contour the lips without a pencil!
     In the second picture I'm wearing "Martyr's Blood". First of all, genius name for it! Now this is the perfect color to wear daily if you're into wearing heavy make up everyday like I sometimes do! At first glance it almost seems like the deep blood-ish kind of color has some dark purple undertones, which is fu-cking awesome. If you're looking into intimidating people on the street with the perfect lipstick, that's your color! And the awesome part? It kinda actually looks like you've dipped your lips in blood! Let's admit it ladies, you know it makes you feel powerful as hell when you're wearing a shade like that - and we all fucking love it! And just like "Naked Witch" you don't need to apply it many times to get that dark color, but because it's a dark lipstick you should play safe and wear a pencil of the same tone to do the contouring! Not that the lipstick is hard to apply (because it's not), we just want to make it look as perfect as possible!
     In the second picture I'm wearing "Segunda Plaga". Now this is a peculiar shade I thought I'd never wear! But you know what? I love it! Just like "Necromantia" these appealing colors actually give you that extra edginess your look was asking for! Both of them are dark shades, so it actually fits really well if you have a dark style like myself, and it also ends up completing your entire look if you have a fierce and edgy personality!
     So, overall, they're all really strong and impactful shades! All of the colors are super vivid, and really easy to put a remove! They can last for hours - taking the necessary cautions all of us ladies are aware of - UNLESS you decide to smudge your boyfriend/girlfriend with kisses, then, dude, share your lipstick with their fucking face!!
     If you like my looks, I'll be making video tutorials soon! I've been getting way too many requests, it's time for me to make them! Also, like my septum rings? They're gorgeous right?! You can find them at patapatajewelry.com!

     Hope you liked it!

20 Y.O. AND GRADUATED: NOW WHAT?

Hi guys!

     It's with great pleasure that I'm proud to announce that I'm officially graduated (*yeahhh, throws parade*)!
     No. But seriously. This has been nothing but an incessant roller-coaster of an emotionally revealing life lesson full of doubts and insecurities that now only seem pile up instead of relieving all of this pressure with answers. 
     We spend our three years from high school constantly getting the "you're gonna have to know what do you want to do for the rest of your life, and be the best at it" kind of speech, go through all of those nerve-wracking finals, and then when it's all over, you're still just a clumsy kid tumbling into and adult's world!
     When we finally get into the so-expected-university  and now speaking for myself  I had the constant feeling that I was still an insecure youngster who was not ready to face all of that alone. I was not ready to socialize in a group of strangers (as I'm tremendously shy), nor was I ready to sit and learn how to act like a professional.

     Well, overall I have to say that nothing ended up to be what I expected!

     Turns out all of those strangers are now great friends of mine, and I don't know what it would've been like without them! I didn't just met people who I consider great co-workers, I've met people with amazing and influential personalities who are probably some of the most important people that I've had the pleasure to walk along side with in my entire life. I've learnt from them, I laughed (so f*cking much) with them, I cried with them, and most importantly, I've grown with them!
     Also, turns out that my high school has prepared me too goddamn well for everything that I faced during these past three years!
     You know all of that bullcrap you used to say a few years back, like, "why do I need this? Why the f*ck do we have to learn this? This is useless, I'll never need this in rest of my life" hm, well (*high pitched voice*)....! Turns out that, you kinda do! Believe me, all of that "bullshit" you so used call is kinda important for you. And I realized that when, in certain classes in uni, I had to apply those things high school teachers implied to us so much, and my only thought was "phew, glad I've heard/done this before"! So, to all the youngsters out there reading this: when a teacher insists in teaching you something (and I'm not even talking about material from you class module), believe us graduation students when we tell you that, you WILL need it!

     Well now, by the end of my graduation, I can say... I am far from done! I've enjoyed so much learning all that I've learnt of what I like doing the most that I can't stop now!

     BUT, there's a huge question mark in the freaking way...!
     You know when you're in your, I don't know, 15/16 years of age, and you kinda say to yourself "yeah when I turn 20 I'll be having my driver's license already, I'll be graduated and have a job, and have my life settled and soon after that I'll be moving out and be a grown-up"?
     Err... Here's the thing 15 year old me:
     I am FAR from having my goddamn life settled! And, moving out...? If I could, I'd stay in my mummy's place until I'm old (you do realize she cooks the greatest meals right? She even puts up with your vegetarian diet! You wanna give up on that?)!

     So, again, dear 15 year old me, I did get my driver's license... I am 20 years old now... and I am graduated... Now what?



Rock on,
B xx

FROM BLOND TO VIOLET



     Hi people, long time no see!
     Again, so sorry about the my absence, but as I told you due to some health issues I couldn't keep up with everything.
     ANYWHO, I decided I needed a change. I sorta woke up one day and felt like something was missing. I thought "hm, I've been looking like this for quite too long", and for those who know me, you know I can't not change for too long! So I decided to try a new hair color for a few weeks. You know I've been dying my hair every single color since I was, like, what... 15? So I dyed my hair violet for the third time, but this time I did it on my entire hair.
I kind like it! Not sure if this is a color I'd like to maintain for a little longer, but I'm really feeling like this could be my color! I dyed it mostly because of Rogue + Wolf though, so I could shoot better with a different style!
     Meanwhile, I've been getting way too many questions about my ears! No they're not surgically modified (unfortunately), and nor are they prosthetic silicone, I just edit them on photoshop. I really hope to get them modified someday (whenever I find a good and decent surgeon in my country lol), I've been wanting this for years now!
     Send me your thoughts about the new color!

Rock on,
B xx

I'M BACK!

Hi everyone!




    So I haven't updated my blog in... how long? Way too fucking long I guess, but I'm back!
I'll be posting more stuff about current projects, about my looks (as usual), and maybe some personal stuff as well like tips on vegetarian meals, and maybe shoutouts to some skin products and such. Same old shit and more!
    The reason why I've been so absent is mostly the lack of time I got from all the uni works and shit, as well and some health issues, but from now on I'll start posting stuff once a week at least. 
    Meanwhile, I want to thank to everyone who I've been working with so far for all the support and for always believing in me!




Cheers,
B xx
