My makeup favourites

By Mistress Eve,     April 2, 2023

It wouldn’t be a big surprise that I LOVE makeup. But I also like to dance into the early hours and I was tired of my eyeliner fading and smudging and my mascara running out. It was quite a search and unfortunately I’ve been disappointed more often than positively surprised by the many brands, but now I have collected some top products that actually make sure my makeup still looks perfect after an entire night of dancing.

So I really wanted to share these favorites with you, because I can imagine there are more ladies who, like me, who don’t want to go home as a rained-out panda bear at the end of a good party. So here they come;

First, I use an eyeshadow primer. Smashbox’s 24 Hour Photofinish is not the cheapest, but is economical to use and definitely 1 of the best out there.

Then comes my most beloved makeup product, the liquid eyeliner Intense H20 Proof Eyeliner by E.L.F COSMETICS. This eyeliner is very easy to apply due to its narrow tip and it stays on perfectly.

Recently, after many failed attempts, I finally found a pencil eyeliner that won’t smudge. The Infailible 36H Grip Automatic Eyeliner from L’oréal Paris. I am so happy with this because this is what I was missing to create a perfect smokey eye with. (If you ever do experiment with various brands yourself, skip the Victoria Beckham eyeliners. Never had an eyeliner that stayed on so badly.)

Then mascara, I use 2 different types of mascara on top of eachother, 1 for volume (this can be any mascare that you like) and one for durability. Fot that second one I apply 1 or 2 good coats of the Devine Lashes Mascara by MAX FACTOR. This mascara unfortunately doesn’t give the volume and length I’m looking for, but it does stay on tremendously well. That’s why I only use this to seal off my other mascara wit hso that it stays perfect and doesn’t smudge. This way your mascara will look perfect all day/evening or night.

If you’re like me and love wearing fake eyelashes, switch to the Ardell Duo Brush On Striplash Adhesive immediately. I always use the Dark Tone, but there is also a colorless version of it. In addition, I am also a big fan of the Ardelle Natural lashes.

Then, of course, lipstick. Because who doesn’t love to go to a party or festival with pretty painted lips? But this is quite a risk, because usually it stays on poorly, or the lipstick ends up on your teeth instead of on your lips. This is not the case with the Maybelline Superstay matte Ink Lipstick. Even at the end of a long festival day, it’s still on and it’s kiss-proof, but only as long as you don’t do extensive tonguing. Because believe me, there isn’t a single lipstick that can withstand that… And of course I tested this extensively.

Then lastly I have 2 setting sprays that already work well separately, but if you use them on top of eachother you can be sure that your makeup will stay on perfectly. I’m talking about the Matte Finish setting spray from NYX. This one is very mattifying and I use it as the first layer of my setting sprays. As the 2e layer, I apply the Stay All Night Micro-Fine setting spray from E.L.F. COSMETICS. This one has very fine droplets and gives a somewhat dewy effect, that keeps your makeup looking fresh all day.

Not a BDSM blog this time, but I hope you still got something out of this for yourself or maybe as a gift idea for Me, your own Mistress or maybe for your partner.

Should I come across other products again that I get very excited about, I will definitely share this with you again. Perhaps next time these will be BDSM related.

Stay safe and playfull.

Love, Mistress Eve
