Lolita Blog Carnival: Favorite makeup tips

Favorite makeup tips, I'm going to be honest I'm not a huge fan of using much makeup. I love to keep my makeup a little bit natural and toned down, I don't want my makeup to scream: here I am! I guess this makes it difficult for me to write something about my favorite makeup tips, so why would I write a post about this? 
It would be interesting because it's something I would never write about, I want to give it a try!

My first overall makeup tip: natural & toned down makeup!

Don't get me wrong, I don't like to use much makeup.. that's my opinion. Many lolitas think that they have to use lots of makeup to look good in lolita, I think it's not true. With a little bit less makeup, you can still look pretty. First of all stop comparing yourself with the makeup pages in famous lolita magazines, yes the lolitas in the magazines look stunning, only their makeup is done by professionals and then most magazines use photoshop for their models. Then I want that you won't see makeup as something you use to hide yourself, okay it's something to make you 'prettier' but it's not true that using more makeup means that you automatically look good. Don't try to mask the part of your face you don't like, try to emphasize the parts you like. 

Take a look at this, this is one of my favorite pictures... even if it's my one of my favorites I haven't used much makeup, it's exactly enough I think:

What makeup did I used?

- Primer (I'm not sure how to call it, we call it foundation in Dutch)
- Pink rouge
- Mascara
- eyeliner
- False eyelashes
- Red lipstick
- A light colored 
eye shadow

False eyelashes

Like many lolitas I love false eyelashes, maybe you are wondering why I still love false eyelashes while I always say that you don't have to use much makeup. It's because I don't have long eyelashes.. then people say: ''Use some mascara and then it will be okay!'' Mascara doesn't work, I tried many different brands, my eyelashes stay short. My under lashes are longer then my upper lashes, weird isn't it?! That's why I tried false eyelashes once... Since then I NEED to wear false lashes when I wear lolita. My favorite ones are those long drag queen like false lashes, extreme long and thick lashes are so pretty! And I love false lashes with sparkles, stars or even a whole decorated theme in it. (like those very expensive flower ones) False eyelashes are my favorite part of my makeup besides the lipstick.

The finishing touch for every look, the lipstick. Lipstick is feminine, elegant and it makes a face vividly I think. My favorite color for Gothic Lolita is mysterious red (111) from YSL and for Sweet Lolita baby pink from a unknown brand.

  1. eyelashes does wonders for me! i'm always so jealous of girls with luscious long eyelashes, especially bottom eyelashes too. i wish i were better at applying falsies, i'd definitely wear them more often~

    1. Me too! I wish I had long eyelashes...
      The more you try the better you get in applying the lashes. I still need to improve my makeup skills to make the false eyelashes look more real. ^^

  2. Ben dol op de nepwimpers en hoe erg je look kan veranderen als je ze gebruikt. En vind je lippenstift ook leuk, mooie kleur is het ^^

    1. Dat zeker,ze kunnen je look zo erg veranderen, daarom vind ik nepwimpers zo leuk!
      Ik ben dol op die lippenstift, het is best een aparte kleur het is meer een soort van bloedrood en dat vind ik wel mooi. ^__^
