NEO Cosmo: Ruby Queen (Blue) circle lens review!

Yesterday I received these lovelies in the mail and after wearing them today I shall bring to you my thoughts etc. : ) I purchased them off http://www.keautystore.com and waited for about 2 weeks which is pretty normal for Australia.

Here’s what it looks like by itself:

Deets:

Curve is 8.6. The lens are pretty floppy and adjustable so they’re quite comfy.

Diameter: 14.2. If you’re looking for super enlargement pretty lenses or lenses that fill up eye whites then these probably aren’t for you. Though if you just want subtle but detailed pretty lenses then by all means 😀 I don’t have a lot of eye white space so they’re perfect for me.

Life: The recommended is about 6-8 months. Which is what i recommend for circle lenses anyway. Any older start getting uncomfortable and could possibly be quite dirty for your pretty eyes! 

First Impression:

Wow so pretty! They look like diamonds (in the skyyy~ LOL jokes.)! The design is very cute, princessy and still looks fairly normal for everyday wear. Not too over the top but upon closer inspection you see the cute detail.

Comfort:

There has never been a 10/10 ones for me (I have pretty dry eyes when i’m heaps tired… and i’m always tired LOL) , especially with the Geo lenses- they’re a bit thicker. Suprisingly though, these ones are REALLY comfy. The lens is quite thin. It’s a little bit harder to put on because they’re a bit floppier than your usual soft lenses so be careful if you have long nails! Once you put them on you kind of forget that they’re there! 

I had them on for about 8 hours with about 4 hours of sleep and a twitchy eye. So you can imagine how tired my eyes were : ‘< But I wore them to look more presentable as a designer/mua for work today. They were quite comfy and didn’t dry up!!! Even after 8 hours they still felt pretty fresh. Therefore the verdict: 10/10!

Heres what it looks like on the eye. I have dark brown eyes… and below that me looking very very tired hahah~

De Rose of Día de los Muertos- Day of the Dead Makeup!

Helloo my lovelies! How’re you all going today? I finally mustered up enough time to sit my fat backside down and figure how to do a requested makeup look from my friend! She drew out a rough diagram and I just sorta.. adjusted it to my face and stuff like that. Hahah. Oh and the product list will be at the end :).  I call this: 

De Rose of Día de los Muertos~
Image
Let’s get started! This will be a long tutorial!
Image
 
1. You want to start off with a really clean and moisturised face. -And i mean REALLY MOISTURISED because the thick white foundation will dry out your skin. Then use a makeup fix as a security for your makeup to last. I used MAC fix plus.
2. Use a face primer as a base. This is really important because it helps spread the foundation properly. Make sure to spread this down to your chin and neck area!
3. Now apply your white foundation or white face-paint! Apply it all over the face, lips, neck and chin. Then blend out using your fingers or a sponge. I’m not sure if i like using a brush for this step because with the white leaves obvious streak marks and leaves your brush… pretty hard to clean. So my fingers have been my best friends LOL. Easy maintenance.
4. Depending on the colour palette of your design, take a coloured liner or lip pencil (or if you don’t have the right colour take your lightest lip pencil) and start marking out the design. If your design is vibrant in colour like mine then i would avoid using black or grey because they’re dark and would be annoying to erase mistakes. To mark out your design, I recommend doing it in “layers”. What I mean is do the large shapes first and after filling those out then add smaller details.
5. Using a concealer brush (preferably synthetic because it’s easier to clean and you will be using it again later…) blend out the marks and gradate the colours and define the lines.

6. For this next step you may use eyeshadows but I used cream face colours which I for me is easier to blend the colours over this surface and highly blend-able with fingers as well. To create the gradation from red to pink, I mixed the red cream colour with my white cream foundation and slowly adjusted the colours with the same concealer brush, applying it to however i wanted it for the design.
7. Now that you’ve got the hang of doing the details and adjusting colors, go ahead and add in the rest of the details. You might want to try it first on the back of your hand as some colours will come out a little bit more unexpectedly in different shades while working on an unfamiliar colour surface. With my nose i outlined with a black eye pencil. Filling in the shape, adding crosses and such with a black cream colour with another concealer brush and then finalising it with using an angled brush and a black gel liner.
For the Heart I filled it in with a bright red lip liner and packed on the red cream colour on top. I smoothed the edges with concealer brush (1) and defined the tip of the heart with black.
Then for the swirly design i went in with a lime crime liquid white eyeliner.
I went to contour the hollows of my cheeks, jawlines and the outer rim of my face with a dust brown rose eyeshadow and packed it on with a massive round top eyeshadow brush. 
My lips actually started cracking here so I went straight to putting lip ointment on.
8. So continuing on with the design i used a dust rose eyeshadow to fill in the petals i drew out with the first lip pencil. Then I went over the outline with the white liquid liner.
I went back to the lip… hahah. Using a dark dust rose lipstick I used a flat concealer brush to pat down a flower pattern over my lip. Then I simply drew on the stitches with the black gel liner.
9. At this time you should be getting quite familiar with adjusting the colours on your face so continue with adding on details and making it pretty : ) For my chin I drew a little heart and filled it out with lip liner and blended it with with white foundation to create the pink.
10. Line your eyes with the gel liner and line with liquid liner after. and apply falsies!!! Touch up your makeup and do your hair xD
