  1. Love the bright colors!!! Your necklace is georgous too!!!

  2. Your blending is amazing, the colours work so well togther. Yup, I'm going to try a look like this soon :D

    1. Thanks, lady! I'd love to see what you come up with!

  3. This is beautiful! It reminds me of tropical sunsets and Hawaii!

  4. Hi there! I love your blog and I love, love, love the necklace you're wearing in these pics. I know you're making jewelery but I dunno, if you made the necklace you're wearing above. Is there maybe any chance for me to get it? :) Hugs and kisses from Germany

    1. Hello! Thanks, I'm happy you like my bloggy. I made this one for myself but hadn't thought of making it available for others. I will contact you if I add it to my store. :-)

  5. That necklace :drool:
    Can you tell me more about Kryolan eyeliner? Is it pigmented?

    1. Thanks. :-)
      Yes, it's an aqua liner and you have to add water to it to make it into a liquid liner (it won't work if you don't add water). It is very pigmented, but you can make it more pigmented or less pigmented based on how much water you mix in. It has been my #1 favourite eyeliner for over 2 years! It's the best!
