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.

From the first glance, I knew it had to be mine.

The result of boredom.

If you've been looking for a "in your face" highlighter, look no further.

Recently Maybelline & L'Oréal Paris sent over some of the new products launching in the upcoming weeks (some just came out). So as per usual here's a quick rundown, first impressions and swatches.

May the autumn makeup look season begin!

H&M recently came out with a new limited edition beauty collection called Precious Glow. 
Even before I saw the products I was sold, because that pink packaging is very much up my alley! This collection is all about the metallics and glow.
You can view & shop the full collection here.
