Lolita Blog Carnival: Favorite Make Up Tricks

Welcome back to LBC this week we'll be discussing make up!

Here are 3 of my favorite make up tricks:

Mascara: I use 2 with different brushes to get lash separation and to thicken them. The first brush is actually a comb head mascara wand. I apply Clinique’s High Lengths Mascara with the comb wand first, getting as close to the base of the lashes as I can to separate, then I apply Clinique's Lash Power Mascara as my second coat to thicken.

Blush/rouge: I love blush/rouge. I think it brightens the face giving a healthy appearance, it also helps counteract late night study sessions that make one look sallow and zombie-ish. I use the cream kind, my favorite is one from Avon, Be Blushed Cheek Color in Tropical Peach.

Light colored eyeshadow: I love emphasizing the eyes and to do that I use light colored eyeshadow (powder or cream) in the inner corners of the eyes so that area reflects the most light.

Lolita Blog Carnival: 3 prints I would like to see

Welcome to another addition LBC, this time around we're are presenting you with 3 prints we would like to see brands come up with.

This would definitely be in the realm of Gothic Lolita. I'm thinking something a la BTSSB's Alice and the Pirates Vampire Requiem. I love the look of skulls especially with roses in motifs, I an drawn to the dark and romantic concept of it. 

2) More fairy tale prints for all lolita substyles

I love fairy tales and wish more would be depicted in prints. Baby has come up with some that would feel perfect for a classic Lolita's wardrobe but what about sweet and gothic lolis. I can imagine the witch's, of Hanzel and Gretel, house displayed in all its candy glory being donned by a sweet loli with a matching polymer clay candy decoden headdress similar to the one found here. I can also see the theme being turned to the dark side. Beauty and the beast displayed with roses and thorny vines surrounding each scene. 
3) Dolls 

I love dolls and have found that many Lolitas do too, I am surprised that with all the collaborations some brands have done with famous BJD companies (Innocent World X Pullip, Angelic Pretty X Pullip, BTSSB x Volks, H. Naoto x Pullip) that there wouldn't be more prints featuring dolls. This could also manifest itself in the different substyles. Broken porcelain dollies for the gothic prints, classically clad bjds for the classic girls, and cute Kiki Kinoko Juice-like dolls for the sweet lolis. 

Here's so more blogs with this weeks prompt

Fairytale Fashion Boutique Haul

I visited the Fairytale Fashion Boutique about a week ago and wrote but a review which you can find here:

I promised to write a post with my Fairytale Fashion Boutique, FFB, haul, so let's begin!

Here's the Lovely Minako modeling my accessories

I bought four things, here modelled by Minako my BJD: a bow ring, a bow bracelet, a candy hair accessory and kiss kiss 3 part earrings. Here's a link to a close up of all accessories. 

They were a well priced and I spent around 29 USD on everything, so FFB is definitely the place to shop of the budget conscious Lolita. 

They are good quality and very pretty. I am definitely one satisfied customer.

For all my readers that can't make to FFB brick and mortar shop, they are developing a website, keep an eye out for that.

Thank you all for reading.

Lolita Blog Carnival: 3 Lolita Trends I Could Never Get Into

1) Bonnets

Don't get me wrong, I have admired many beautiful bonnets, especially this one pictured. But I just couldn't see myself wearing one. I think it's just too much for me in Lolita and it reminds me too much of the Regency period and Jane Austen novels. However I might consider wearing one if I was ever cosplaying Elizabeth Bennet or Marianne Dashwood. 

2) Most platform Lolita shoes
I don't usually like platform shoes in general but in Lolita they seem too bulky and heavy. Now there are some platform shoes I do like, these for example (1, 2, 3). The 2 examples pictured are just not my cup of tea. 

3) Wristbands with Short sleeve shirts

I have been tempted before, but I could never bring myself to wear wristbands with short sleeves shirts. However under long sleeves to extend the length of the sleeve, yes ( I have long arms and long sleeve lolita shirts are short on me). I think they make the arms look out of balance and much rather wear bracelets instead.

Here are some awesome blogs with there take on this theme:
