February Favorites 2014

Hi Everyone, I don't know what is wrong with me but I have had this post written and pictures taken but somehow I did not manage to post it!
Just ignore the title of the post haha! I will just make a little short post about my February favorites.

But February was long for me, my boyfriend moved back to London so now I am in a long distance relationship that is major change. I was feeling a bit under the weather all through Febuary, I hope March will be much better and in a few days I will be heading myself to London, so excited!

Let's start with the e.l.f Warm Bronzer, this has been on my face non stop since I got it. I either use it as a bronzer to warm up my face or just as my blush but then just using the shades on the right. I think that all the colors are beautiful and last all day on my cheeks.

Same favorite since last month, the Maybelline Falsies Mascara. I did manage to use it this month but to be honest it is getting very dry and I think I will buy it again because it is that good!

I used MAC Soft Ochre almost every day either as a base or just all over the eyelid to cancel out how dark they are. 
And again, I have been loving the Max Factor Facefinity Foundation, I just love how easy it is to use it and the coverage is just amazing. I did do a first impression if you want to see it here. 

For my eyes I used the Clinique Chubby Stick for eyes in Lavish Lilac regularly. It is just so easy to make a daytime smokey look or as a base for a night time look. 

They two eyeliners I have been loving are the Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeline in Stingray (black) and Lionfish (bronze). I used the black on my upper and bottom waterline and then lined the top lash line with the bronze shade. They are so creamy, opaque and waterproof. I have already photograph them separately for a post that is coming soon.

Well thats that!
I am going to write another post now and hopefully I will post it soon :D

Btw.. Am I the only one that is the queen of pushing things back? 

Thanks for reading :D

The Sunday Post - Last night and a privacy issue!

Hi Everyone!

I am writing this late on Sunday while having stomach cramps because I ate too much candy.. True first world problems!

A little photo by me :)

I had a great time yesterday, my cousin had a little party. So a little story about Icelandic culture... See how in UK/US and more places your relatives are called aunt, cousins, niece and so on, depending how you are related to them. In Iceland we basically have one word for female 'frænka' and another for male 'frændi'. (Obviously you have other words for parents, siblings and grandparents) but for all other relatives like second cousin and cousin it is the same!
So what I am trying to say.. She threw a 'frænkuparty'
Lovely dinner and drinks but even better company. I knew my family was loud (we are known for it) and a bit crazy, just the ladies of the group to be honest, but last night was something new haha

I wanted to take a proper picture of my makeup but I was rushed and I didn't have time to take pictures of my whole makeup. I did manage to snap couple of my eye makeup and I loved how it turned out.
I used the new MUA Pretty Edgy Eye Palette and I promise I will do a whole post about it because it is pretty awesome.

So onto something else... I need to know what you guys think about this, please do let me know.
I have been blogging for awhile now but I never give it to much thought. It is called My Little Corner because it is. It is a little corner where I can do whatever I want to. I do blog about beauty but that is what I really love. In the last year or so I have been getting more connected in the beauty community. I started posting regularly and connecting my blog to my Instagram, Twitter and other social media. I love getting to know other bloggers and I love it when people look at my blog and even comment.
However... Iceland is a small country and people are just sometimes a bit curious. I had a person accidentaly like a picture on my Instagram, they were not following me and when I clicked on it, the like was gone. I recognized the screen name, even though I am not following them. So they were going through my pictures and double tapped on by accident. (Old photo as well)
I had my Instagram on a private setting since I do post normal personal things on there as well, but everything I was tagging (like bbloggers) was not seen by people in the beauty community so I opened it again and thats when I realised there are people looking at my profile that I don't necessarily want to look at it.
I do realise with blogging comes all of these things but I have just always been in a little bubble here on my blog. Not a lot of my friends read it and people don't really care that you blog in Iceland. However I am putting myself on a place where people that don't really care about my content can take a sneak peak into my life...
I know I just have to not think about it but to be honest it felt a bit weird knowing someone was looking at my photos when they really had no place doing it.
What do you think? Any tips?

I normally don't care what people think of me and I don't care about this, but there is something annoying me about this. I am not bothered with two Instagrams accounts and so on...

Well I have to go and continue watching The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (I am just watching season 1 and already on episode 8, btw I started watching them today)
Yes, another thing that I live for, reality TV, or just any TV haha
I also have a big exam tomorrow, the test I should have taken two weeks ago but I am taking the sickness test.
AND I AM GOING TO LONDON IN 9 DAYS.... but more on that later

Thanks for reading 

Good night:**

Top Five Friday - Getting ready in a hurry!

Hi Everyone :) 
Happy Friday! I decided to go and stay at my dads this weekend to get some studying done. So hopefully this will be a productive weekend with a lot of snacking and reading! 

I wanted to share with you guys my top five products that I use when I am getting ready in a hurry. Some days when I have to show up really early in the morning, I just want to do my makeup in few minutes but still look super fabulous. Like I have spent 20 minutes but I actually just spent 5 minutes!

I always pick a foundation that is a good color match and blends easily into my skin. Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation gives a good medium coverage but still has a very glowing natural look. 
It just take a minute to blend this foundation into the skin and make it flawless

I am loving the e.l.f Warm Bronzer for a quick sweep all over my cheeks. It gives a great glow and dimension on my face. 

I love using the Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in On and On Bronze with a light sweep all over the lid. It looks like you took awhile applying your eyeshadow but I use my finger and pad it all over the lid.

Next I make sure I use a mascara that it is easy to apply and gives me volumized lashes in one coat. These days I am loving the Maybelline Falsies mascara. It is fast and gives me lovely lashes.

My main tip to look like you made an effort is a bold lip. I love the Rimmel Color Rush Lip Balm in Rumor Has it. It is easy to apply and the color is so bright and I really think it makes me look like I care haha! The formula is great and even though it is a bright color, it is easy to apply because it is like a crayon.

So as you can see my main thing for getting ready in a hurry are products that are easy to use and products that make me look like I put a lot of effort in.
What products do you guys use when you only have 5 minutes in the morning? 

Thanks for reading :)
