Get ready for summer with Essence (and come celebrate Essence's BDay in Berlin?)

Essence make up


Temperatures are rising and we feel that summer is waiting just around the corner.
Today I am showing everything that is extremely budget proof and with all of these products you can create and amazing summer look.
Let's have a look at the Essence products I selected for you.

First u is our skintone.
I got myself a green concealer to cover up my redness and a mattifying foundation by Essence.
I really love the colour correcting range Essence added to their makeup assortiment, I am all about colour correcting and love doing it with a budget brand.

I bought my foundation in shade 010, but still it was too dark for my porcelain skintone.
I really loved the texture and feeling of this foundation.
It doesn't feel dry at all although it is a matte foundation.

Here you can see a small amount of the colour correcting green concealer applied under my eyes.
It really is so nice to use!
It blends out great and really covers the redness you want to get rid of.

Maybe you've heard of it, the new trend is called draping.
What is draping?
Contouring with your blush.
I am a big fan myself.
Contouring was never my thing because of my light skin.
A soft contour mostly looked like dirt on my skin because every contour color was too orange.


Essence make up

Essence is absolutely cool and trendy with this palette.
Essence selected 3 blush shades to do your draping with.
A highlight colour, a sculpting colour and a define colour.

Here you can see the exact results of the 3 blush colours, I really like the blush highlight!

Blush highlight is nice, but I also am an addict of any highlight.
Something i've never tried before was the rainbow highlight because I was afraid of the results by seeing this vivid and bright colours.

 But hey, check that out!
There is no yellow, blue, red,... in this highlight to be seen!
I am so surprised by the effect this gives.
A big wow and a round of applause for Essence!

Another new thing in the Essence range: palettes you can customize yourself.
You take a palette (for 4 or 8 pieces eyeshadow) and you pick the shades you like and you're ready.

I got myself a base colour and an inner corner highlight.
I filled my palette with a soft baby pink colour and a burgundy one.

The colours in this palette are:
05 Cotton Candy
08 Peach-Party!
06 Raspberry Frosting
18 Black as a Berry

Just look at these shades.
How pigmented!
I will definitely buy more shades to make some more palettes.

You can fill your palettes with: eyeshadow, blush, highlight, lipstick, lip base and lip powder.

The next essential for every beauty addict: a volume mascara.
This is a volume mascara that stays onto your lashes extremely good!
This mascara contains lengthening fibers, so I was really curious about trying this mascara.


Essence make up

This mascara does give some extra length to my lashes and a natural volume effect.
What I really like about this mascara that it doesn't feel clumpy or hard on your lashes but it keeps your lashes really soft.

 Another product I just had to try out, the Essence cushion eyeliner.
Nowadays there are a lot of cushion products: blush, foundation,...
So why not trying an eyeliner with this formula?
It really feels very soft, but I prefer using I liquid eyeliner like I always did.
I guess it is just a habit?

Essence make up

OMG, that's exactly what I thought hen I unpacked these gorgeous lipglosses.
This are the shine, shine, shine wet look lipglosses and I am all about shine and gloss so this is a perfect match for me.
I got myself bold colours because I really like pigmented glosses and I just had to try these out.

The glosses are really pigmented and wow they smell amazing (and the taste is yummy too!).
I am really satisfied and these glosses are one of my daily favorites now.

Next up: a 'fade your shade' lipstick.
I LOOOOVVVEEE THIS!
I made an ombre lip with this fade your shade stick and the red gloss mentioned above and the result is simply gorgeous.

Essence make up


You can use this lipstick to create ombre lips but even bitten lips or other trends made with multiple lipstick shades can be created with this stick.


Essence make up

And off course nail polish is an essential during the summer.
You're wearing flip flops, the toes are out,...
I have 3 shades that I really like.
A glow&Care nailpolish with a soft redish colour.
A pearl nailpolish that fits every clothing style and colour.
And a bold blue nailpolish.
