It all started with a very nice cup of coffee …

I had the urge to do a special Valentine’s make-up. I think I’m slowly getting back and am again enjoying make-up and stuff … I didn’t think long what make up to do on Valentine’s day. I just immediately knew I wanted to try the Illamasqua Sophie-I technique. I’m not sure what’s so different on this technique that it deserves a special name, but it’s still a nice and quite easy to do. And what is the nicest thing about this thechnique (if you ask me) … you don’t need a lot of products to create the look. I pretty much followed the tutorial below …

… and that’s what my Valentine’s make up looked like. Very nice, dramatic, but wearable look. A different take on the classical smokey eyes.

And since I was wearing quite a lot of make up and the make up look made me feel strong and confident, I wanted a scent that would compliment the look. A scent that would make me special and even more confident. A special and different scent … And one of the most different (the other being Thierry Mugler – Alien) scent in my collection of perfumes is definitely Illamasqua’s Freak.

The bottle you see in the photo above is a sample bottle I got for review some time ago. At first I had mixed feelings about the scent. It’s definitely unisex scent. The opening is masculine, but then it becomes more floral and more feminine. Definitely a special scent I’ve never smelled before. And the scent stays on me for hours. It’s not a scent I would wear on an everyday basis, but from time to time I just have the urge to wear it. It’s quite funny, because I thought I am not going to like it, but it started to grow on me and now … I’m very happy to have it and I think I would buy it myself (especially if it would be available in a smaller bottle and hence it would be cheaper).

So the scent of the Valentine’s day was Illamasqua – Freak, but the present of the day was Bvlgari – Omnia Amethyste. Omnia Amethyste is a perfume I’ve had on my WL for months now. The opening of this perfume is unpleasant (to me), but it fast develops this nice, warm and floral scent that I love. The scent stays on me for hours and I just love it. The most important and exciting part of it is, that my boyfriend loves the scent as well.

We are almost done … I have a bonus photo for you. It’s a photo of Poli. Doesn’t he have the cutest eyes ever?!

Poli ...

And what was your mix of the Valentine’s day?

  1. Make up je čudovit, izredno ti pristaja. Jaz sem zadnje čase tako mahnjena na barve, da bi veko gotovo pobarvala še s kakšno barvo. :yes: In zelo me veseli, da dobivaš nazaj veselje do make upa. :party: Pogrešam tvoje prispevke. Oooo, tale Bvlgari mi je bil pa vedno obupen, ko sem ga na prvi ‘nos’ povohala. Zdaj me pa firbca, kakšni so kasnejše note. :perfume:
    Marička, mucek je pa perfekten. :love: :akitty: Kakšen srček! Okice so superkjut. :)

    Moj valentinov dan je bil delaven in čisto običajen. Ne praznujeva valenitnovega in, če ti po pravici povem, komaj čakam, da se umaknejo z blogsfere vse valentinove srčkaste manikure. :blush: :bljak:

    • Tale make-up je čudovit. Hvala za idejo, sem jo že uporabila!
      Se mi zdi da je za nas, ki imamo veke malo manj odprte in precej izrazito gubo na sredini tale verzija veliko bolj primerna kot klasičen zadimljen look. Oči lepo odpre, namesto pomanjša. Z barvami pa lahko narediš od dramatičnega do takega zelo naravnega- super za petkove večere zunaj. =)

  2. lol, i ja se ovako šminkam, nosivije je od klasičnog smokey-a :nails:
    krasne poklone si skupila, a maca mi je preslatka… ma obje ste slatke :love:

  3. uuuuuuuuuuuu všeč mi je :wub: res dober make up :)) sem ga morala kar sprobati in res pride zelo lepo tudi na meni, kar je prav redkost, saj mi močni make upi ponavadi sploh ne pristajajo :blush:

  4. ko sem videla sliko mucka, sem se takoj spomnila obutega mačka iz shreka in njegovega pogleda :D

    sicer pa zelo lep make up. Itak si pa tudi ti zelo lepa, čeprav mi načeloma svetlolaske niso ravno ušeč

    Dragi pa mi je podaril rdečo vrtnico, tako da je blo res rdeče valentinovo :wub:

  6. Poli is so adorable. And that’s coming from a person who’s alergic to cats. :P I really like the look, though I myself would pop on a bit more color. :)
