Secrets for a flirty look

Are you going on a date with that cute guy that you like? Do you want to catch your husbands attencion or just want to change your look?
Then a flirty makeup is what you are looking for and I am going to give you some usefull tips & tricks that are going to help you achieve the perfect flirty look.

1. Cat eye mascara
One thing that makes a huge difference when it comes to a flirty look is definetly the way you apply mascara. You want fanned out lashes with a pointy edge.To do that take a mascara and start in the inner corner of the eye. Move the brush up and a little bit to your nose. Do the same things to the outer corner but this time move it in the opposite direction. Then take your brush and move it horizontally on the last outer lashes. That gives you a cat eye effect which is exactly what we want to achieve.

2. Warm colors
Another tip is to use warm colors for your makeup look. You can use brown, red, orange, yellow, pink or red violet. So you have lots of colors and tones to choose from.

3. Winged eyeliner
Your liner makes a big difference. For a flirty look you want a winged liner that is not too thick and not too long. It does not have to be black, it can be dark or it can be the thing that gives your look a pop of color. In this last case you can even use a cold color that goes well with the other colors that you are using. For example you can use a turquoise line for a brown eye makeup.

4. Big and full lips
For this look we want those Angelina Jolie lips. To achieve that you will line your lips a little bit above your lip line. Then apply a matching color to your lips but leave the center of your lips out for now. After you have done that take a lighter color and apply it to the center of your lips. That will give you the big sexy lips appearance  but if that is too much for you just put you lipstick on and then add a lip gloss to the center of your lips.

5. Matching blush
This is a rule for every makeup look. You want your blush to match your lips and your lips and blush to balance the eye makeup. So if you choose a vibrant makeup look you want a blush & lipstick that are not as vibrant because they can make a big difference.

6. Sexy hair
Last but not least you need the perfect hairstyle. For a flirty hairstyle you will need big voluminous hair. You can use hot rollers and hairspray or a curling wand. Both looks are great and change a lot the way you look.

Products you can use:
A good mascara is one that has two steps. Lots of companies make them. MAC Haute & Naughty Lash is one of them. Avon and essence have one. I saw them and they all look the same so I got the essence one.
A good eyeshadow palette is the 88 palette which is also made by a few brands. BH cosmetics  has one. The pigmentation is great and the price is even better.
For eyeliner you can use an eyeshadow with a wet brush so that you do not have to own lots of eyeliners.
For your lips you do not need to buy a lip liner that matches your lipstick. You can just take a lip liner brush and use your lipstick. Great lipsticks are the ones by Revlon.
I think that every blush works, so look for one that matches your lips or just use an eyeshadow as blush.
For a great Hairstyle I have to secret products. One are the Babyliss hot rollers. The other one is the Jose Eber clipless curling iron.

P.S. Love ... The New Primark Makeup Line

Primark came out with a new Makeup line. As a makeup lover I wanted to try it especially because of the price. P.S. Love has basic products or at least in Germany does. They don’t have a big variety but they have just enough. A few of the products are inspired from other brands but at a lower price. I’ve tested a few of the products for you. Let’s take a look at the products.


They have quite a few nail products. They seem to have many nail polish sets and decoration stuff. I only took a nail strippers with me beacause I already have a lot of nail polishes. I was very impressed with them. They are opic and the consistency is very light. That is good because many nail strippers are thick and that makes it hard to work with. They have a few different sets. I have the black, white and pink and the turquoise, gold and silver. They only cost 2.50 € per set.


I didn’t get any eyeshadows because again, I have a lot. But I wanted to try the eyeshadow stick. I thought it could be nice for everyday and it was on sale for 50 cents. I choose the color gold but I really don’t like it. It is flaky and it doesn’t apply well.
A thing that I always buy is mascara and they had an interesting one. It is called the volumising ultra black mascara. They have the normal formula and a waterproof one. I have the normal one and the brush reminds me of the Rocket from Maybelline. I can’t really compare the two mascaras because I have the Rocket in waterproof. The mascara takes a lot to dry which I hoped had changed from the old Primark mascara. But it is definitely better. I quite like it and you can layer it as long as it’s still wet. It gives a good result but it is not wow.
I was really excited for the eyeliner stick. I always wanted one and I was hoping to use it everyday. But it is not that black and you don’t have control over it. Because the tip isn’t sharp it gets everywhere and it doesn’t stay in place. I think that I will use it as a base and smudge it.
I am pretty impressed with the tweezers. You get a sharp one and an angled one. They have different designs and are affordable (1.50€ for two). They are very good and are the only ones I use.


I believe that they have foundation but I don’t use it so I didn’t look for it. I only took a makeup sponge because mine is old. It should be a beauty blender dupe but it is really hard. Even after it was under water so I don’t think that it will be good.


Well, with the lips stuff they have done a great job. They have lip tins, lip glosses, lipsticks...
all in basic colors. I have a peachy lipgloss that is kind of sheer. I keep it in my bag so I don’t have a picture with it. Now the lipstick that I chose has a pink maybe fuchsia color. It is really creamy and stays that way on the lips. It is not that opaque as I expected but you can build up the color. I really like it and it is a good everyday lipstick.


I think that they have done a great job. The products are much better than the previews ones and are worth trying. They are good for a beginner because they are affordable but are good for makeup lovers who maybe want to complete their collection.


It depends on the Primark where you go to on which things you find. It is better to go in the morning because you will find more things and they won’t be laying everywhere.

So happy shopping and I hope that you liked my post!
