A Little About Me

Well, hello there! And welcome to Alksne!
I'm Laura and I'm happy to see you here in this online corner of mine. I'm a self-proclaimed and self-taught makeup junkie. My weaknesses include very creamy, good coverage concealers and big, bold, colorful, metallic (preferably) eye shadow palettes. I believe that no highlight is too strong or unwearable and smokey eyes are not only for the evening hours. I have rocky relationships with eyeliners and false eyelashes. My style is always evolving, but the only thing that stays the same is my love for black. Black jeans, a long top, Converse and a fedora hat is my go to uniform, but because it would be too boring to post the same outfit every single time, once in a while I take out those heels and add a splash of color to my usually monochrome looks.

I haven't been so excited to post a new makeup look in weeks! I wore this look two weekends ago when me and my fellow beauty bloggers got together. That morning, right after finishing this look, I knew that I wanted to recreate it and shoot it for the blog! However, I did change some of the products that I used the first time. For example, I finally tried  the Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless foundation and I absolutely love it!! I was given a couple of samples (because it hasn't launched yet in the Baltics. I think they launch in the upcoming months) unfortunately in a darker shade, but I somehow managed to blend it in with my neck, so you can't even tell that I'm wearing a darker shade here than usually. And can we talk about that glitter liner situation happening under my lower lash line? I can't wait for the NYX store to open this autumn, because I need this liner in my life in every shade possible!!   




And which is your Vice shade?

It was all fun until it started to rain. Autumn is here.

Slowly getting back into makeup.

Imagine being on a journey. With no plans, no expectations and no obligations. Just you and the road. That's what this Yves Saint Laurent collection Savage Escape is all about. It's inspired by the boundless freedom and adventure that is promised from a journey through the desert.
