Love u guys!!!

Hello everyone,

First of all I wanted to remind you guys that the giveaway is closing up on January 25th, so hurry if you want to enter. You still have a chance to win!!! The rules are easy – follow me on Instagram, follow, comment and like this blog.

So the winner is going to get some of my all-time favourite beauty products:

Image

The winner gets bronzer, blush, mascara, lipstick in peachy-pink color, brow gel – all from Vivienne Sabo, which is an amazing French makeup brand. Also eyeshadow and highlighter/eyeshadow from Sephora and Rimmel’s Kate lipstick in nude color.

On weekend I am going to announce the lucky winner. And the giveaway is international btw

Also I wanted to mention, that one of the reasons I haven’t posted for a while is because I’ve been pretty busy with my photoshoot. I was not only a model, but I also did my hair and makeup, which I am super excited about:)

So yesterday the photographer contacted me saying the first photo was ready!

Image

I was a bit nervous because it was my first real photoshoot, but it all turned out to be so much fun!!!

The makeup I used: Rimmel’s Stay Matte foundation, Maybelline Affinitone concealer, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, for my brows I used color ‘Tease’ from Urban Decay’s Naked2 palette, Vivienne Sabo’s Coup De Genie Eyebrow pencil in 001 to create a perfect arch and Fixateur Eyebrow gel also from Vivienne Sabo.

For my eyes I used: ‘Bootycall’ from Naked2 palette on my brow bone and in the inner corner of my eyes, as well as a little bit of ‘Verve’. On my lids I put ‘YDK’ and ‘Snakebite’. I usually use more of ‘Half Baked’ and ‘Chopper’, but this time I wanted a more drammatic look, so I used darker shades. For my outer corner of the eye I used ‘Busted’, which is a gorgeous shimmery dark brown color. For my crease I used a beautiful burgundy-ish color (if you can say that, it’s a shimmery mixture of burgundy, purple and brown) from Vivienne Sabo’s eyeshadow quad in 66. Instead of an eyeliner I used ‘Blackout’ from Naked2.

On my lower lash line I applied Maybelline’s Master Smoky shadow-pencil in ‘Smoky Chocolate’ and a little bit of ‘Busted’ on top of that. For my waterline I used a cheap 1$ white pencil, you can basically use any one you like, mine is from Golden Rose. I don’t use white pencils too much, but because I didn’t manage to get a good sleep before the photoshoot, I had to apply it. As for the mascara, I used, ‘Diva’s Lashes’ from Pupa.

Next step – bronzer. I used ‘Voyage en Provance’ from Vivienne Sabo (the same one I got for the giveaway). It’s not too shimmery, not orange at all. It makes my skin really soft and smells amazing. Then goes blush, mine also from Vivienne Sabo ‘Teinte Delicate’ in 12 (the winner gets one too).

Also a highlighter for the inner corners of my eyes, cupid’s bow and cheek bones. I used ‘Mineralize Skinfinish’ in soft and gentle from Mac. And to set my makeup I used Urban Decay’s De Slick setting spray because my skin is oily. But if you have dry to normal skin, you probably can skip that part.

Okay, for my lips I used a cheap nude pink pencil from Flormar, my favourite lipstick ever ‘Charme de Vous’ in 112 from Vivienne Sabo (the lucky winner gets it too) and on top of that I used the best lipgloss ever ‘Precious Pink Jewels’ from Sephora. It makes my lipstick last for good 3-4 hours, is not sticky at all! Very lightweight on my lips, smells great and has a perfect applicator.

That’s it for my makeup 🙂 I know, it might sound complicated, but it isn’t. It took me around 35 minutes to do it.

For my hair I used my curling wand from Babyliss. I love it so much!

On my nails I got ‘Xtreme Wear’ nailpolish in ‘Black Out’ from Sally Hansen.

For my outfit (the part of it you can see on the photo), I am wearing a basic black tee from Zara, black leather jacket from Religion, my earrings are no-name, they are from a local store, my watch is from Paul’s Boutique (love it to death))) and my both bracelets are from Asos.

Hope u guys like it 🙂

Hey guys,

It is the time of the year, when you can just stop for a minute and appreciate the value of friends and family, realize how blessed you are to have these amazing people in your life. When you get a gift, it’s not just something material. By giving something this person shows that he/she cares about you. Isn’t that the most wonderful thing in the world, to know that someone loves you and cares for you?)

That is why I’ve been SUPER excited about the gifts this year. When most of your friends are far away from you, it’s important to know they still remember about you, and show them your love too.

IMG_2918

As you can see I got some makeup, which I think is always a great present.

IMG_2922

First of all, this makeup kit. It’s from the amazing Italian makeup brand Pupa. I’ve owned a couple of items by Pupa, and they’ve always been very good quality.

IMG_2927

This particular kit in bronze color (they also have it in black, as far as I know) contains a cute little makeup bag, eyeshadow quad and an eye pencil.

IMG_2936IMG_2931

I am particularly excited about this pencil. It’s shimmery and looks gorgeous on your lower lash line.

The eyeshadow quad is okay. I mean the colors are nice , I just wish Pupa eyeshadows were as pigmented and creamy as my Naked2 palette.

IMG_2941IMG_2946IMG_2938

I also got this lovely bronzing powder/highlighter. It’s from Giordani Gold.

I love the packaging too – it has a little snake on it.

I think, it’s too shimmery to use as a bronzer, but it’s a nice highlighter. It reminds me a lot of Mac’s mineralize skinfinish in ‘soft and gentle’.

IMG_2951

This is how it looks on my skin.

The last thing I got makeup-wise, is this base coat nailpolish:

IMG_2977

It’s called P2  Ridgefiller, it’s a German brand. It says ‘Ridgefiller with silk powder for a smooth nail surface’. My friend Katy, who lives in Munich sent it to me, she says it works great for her, so I’m sure I’m gonna love it. I received the package today, so I haven’t used it yet.

IMG_2971

She also got me this ADORABLE  cup 🙂 OMG I am so obsessed with it. Thank you, Katy, I love you so much!

IMG_296773210670_LR

My cousin Medeya sent me a lovely sweater from Mango. I love Mango, it’s basically one of my favourite brands. And this sweater is soft, warm, loose and very very cozy – exactly what you need for chilly winter days. And it’s very versatile too – you can pair it with all sort of boots, jeans, accessories, jewellery, etc. So thank you Medeya, I love you and I love the gifts you give me 🙂

And finally, I wanted to reming you guys about the giveaway!!!

I got something new for it:

IMG_2958IMG_2956

I loved this Sephora highlighter/eyeshadow so much, that is why I also got it for the lucky winner 😉

Good luck!)

Hi everyone,

These last couple of days have been pretty crazy, and on top of that I feel really sick 😦

So yeah, in between sipping my disgusting lemony/honey drink (ewww) I’ve decided to tell you guys about my fun experience with an amazing online makeup store feelunique.com. It offers a big range of makeup, both drugstore and high-end. But the best part is that it has free international shipping with no minimum spend.  With my first order I didn’t want to go too crazy, so I purchased items I really needed (well pretty much:)

Image

I was running out of my favourite Rimmel Stay Matte foundation, so I repurchased that, and I also got this oil control primer for oily skin. The foundation I am really satisfied with, and it’s very affordable too. It’s not very buildable though, and the shades are a little bit too light, I think. But it definitely keeps me matte! Speaking about the primer, I haven’t tried it yet, but I promise I’ll do a review of this stuff, as soon as I get better and use it at least 5 times.

Overall, I am very happy with feelunique, the shipping was fast, the items came very well-packed. And yeah, I am definitely going to do my makeup shopping there again.

And for those who are wondering, I am constantly adding new stuff to the giveaway.

Image

Right now it includes my favourite blush, 2 lipsticks (Rimmel’s Kate in 03 and Vivienne Sabo Charme de Vous in 112), mascara, eye shadow and a gorgeous bronzer. The rules are simple – you have to follow, comment and like my blog and follow my Instagram page.

Hey guys! It’s really cold outside and I am wearing my favourite sweater and sipping hot chocolate 🙂 Today I’d like to write about my brushes. These are the makeup tools, I use on a daily basis. I don’t think that Malva brushes are well-known, but I absolutely love the quality and price too. They are very soft!

Ok, so let’s start with my face brushes

Image

Image

From left to right:

  • Powder brush is perfect for applying pressed powder, makes my makeup last so much longer. It’s a must-have for anyone with oily/combination skin
  • Stipple brush is used mainly to apply my mineralize skinfinish by MAC. Great for any highlighter/bronzer
  • Complexion brush is my favourite. It’s the softest brush I’ve ever owned. I use it to apply bronzer, but it’s really multifunctional – you can also use it to apply powder and blush
  • Angled Foundation brush is amazing. It makes my foundation look so natural and flawless
  • Blush brush is very soft, too. I haven’t tried many blush brushes, but this one is very good.

Image

My eye makeup brushes

From left to right:

  • Salon 816 brush is used for highligting the inner corners of my eyes. But you can use basically any small brush
  • Small Smudge brush is perfect for applying eyeshadow to the lower lash line. You can also use it for highlighting
  • Angled Contour brush is my favourite eye brush. It’s so precise! I use it for outter ‘V’. It can also be used for crease, but I have other brushes for that purposes
  • Eyeshadow ‘C’ brush is great for padding eyeshadow on your lids. I got two of these brushes
  • Naked2 brush has turned out not as good as I expected. The palette is pretty pricey, and the brush just ‘screams’ synthetic. I mean I’m okay with the fact, that it’s synthetic, but I wish it was better quality. Anyway it works fine for smudging out your crease
  • Contour brush is an amazing crease brush. Love it
  • Small Angled brush can be used to apply eyeliner, but I use it to fill in my brows. I start by using my eyebrow pencil to bring more definition, and then to make my brows look more natural I apply color ‘Tease’ from Naked2 palette with this little brush
  • Salon 530 brush is used for my eyeliner
  • Julia 819 is the cheapest brush, but it’s very convinient if you want to fix the shape of your brows or lashes.

That’s pretty much it. I’ve been thinking of including brushes into the giveaway. What do you guys think? What brushes do you want me to buy for the giveaway?

Hugs

P.S. To enter the giveaway, you should follow my blog and my Instagram account, comment and like any of my posts.

I can’t tell how excited I am for this giveaway. With Christmas and New Year coming, I think it’s the perfect time to share my favourite makeup products with you guys. So this giveaway will include makeup from my all-time favourite brands  – Sephora, Vivienne Sabo and Rimmel. I am also going to add more items to the package. The giveaway is international, all you have to do is write a comment, follow my blog and my Instagram page AdileBKK. I am going to announce the winner on January 25th.

So the lucky winner gets:

Image

My favourite blush, eyeshadow quad and lip gloss by Vivienne Sabo (these are mine, I am going to get brand new for the winner of course)).

Image

Kate lipstick by Rimmel and eyeshadow from Sephora

Image

And the best bronzer ever!!!! This stuff is AMAZING! It’s not orange at all, it’s the perfect sandy-bronzy-shimery product, that makes my complexion glow, my skin gets realy soft with it, and oh that smell))

I am also going to a store, I’ve been told a lot for a while. So I am probably getting more stuff for my giveaway.

I seriously can not believe it’s winter already, which means I am doing my November Favourites post. I just hope it’s not my last post (with December 21st coming)))))

Anyways, these are the things I’ve been loving through November. And being a coffee addict, I am now only drinking hot beverages, coz it’s pretty chilli outside. I love anything that has caramel in it. In fact, if I was born food, I would probably be caramel:) Hehe, now I am being weird))))

Okay, speaking about my favourites, that are not for eating or drinking purposes (rather becoming beautiful purpose), I’ve been raving about how amazingly Naked2 palette works with my new ‘Diva’s Lashes’ mascara by Pupa. While the eyeshadows define my eyes, the mascara makes my lashes not only crazy long, but extremely fluffy too. Love!

For my highlighter (and eyeshadow) I’ve been loving Sephora’s Urban Luxe Powder, which is a great multi-functional product. It’s on sale now, so hurry up, if you’d like to get it. It’s such a good product for only $7.

Since it’s been cold and windy for a while now, I’ve been protecting my lips from being chapped. And for that I am loving Neutrogena’s Intense Repair Lip Balm and Urban Decay’s Lip Junkie lip gloss. The UD lip gloss is very sheer and the way it smells ans tastes… yummi)

And obviously, since I’ve been crazy happy with my new Sally Hansen nail polish, I couldn’t have mentioned it in this post! It’s in color 05 Bejeweled and it’s one of the prettiest nail polishes, I have ever owned. Very glittery and it just reminds me of winter holidays and candy:)

My last three favourites are my gorgeous new Paul’s Boutique bag, that has dollar, diamond and crown print on it, chunky gold watch also from UK high-street brand Paul’s boutique, and studded booties from River Island. I got the booties in the end of November, but I fell in love with them immediately – they are cute, comfy and edgy.

These are pretty much my November Favourites.

Hugs&kisses

Image

First of all, let me just say that this nail polish from Sally Hansen is wicked!!! I’ve been into glittery nail polishes for a while now, but this one is so unique to me.

Image

Speaking about my purchases, this bag is something I’ve wanted for a while. I have a decent collection of Paul’s Boutique handbags, but this Molly bag is GORGEOUS. It’s exclusive to Asos, so that’s where I got it from. It’s perfect size, made of great quality faux leather and has gold detailing, which I love. But what you notice straight off after laying your eyes on the bag is this crazy charm.

Image

It looks fabulous without the charm too. I don’t understand why some people say, this London-based brand is tacky. It’s quite edgy and bold, but I am sure there are people, who can pull it off.

Image

Okay this Master Smoky shadow-pencil from Maybelline is great! It’s cheap but the quality is amazing. I have very sensitive eyes and eyelids, but this one works perfectly for me. I think with my skin and hair color, brown eye pencils look better on me, than black ones, so I got this in color ‘Smoky Chocolate’.

Image

So this product can be used as a pencial and as an eyeshadow. Just draw a thick line and smudge it out to create an eyeshadow effect.

Image

Image

U guys probably know, how much I adore Watson’s and their exclusive products. Vivienne Sabo is a makeup brand that u can only purchase at ur local Watson’s, as far as I know. VS is such an amazing brand, that offers stunning products for VERY afforfable prices. I love their lipsticks, blushes, eyeshadows, etc. So the last Sunday when I went to Watson’s I got two eyeliners from Vivienne Sabo in ‘Chocolat’ (I love brown, remember)) and ‘Carbon’ (every girl needs a black eyeliner). And guess what? I got a gorgeous Vivienne Sabo powder as a gift. It’s silky and smells good. It actually reminds me a lot of my Dolce&Gabbana powder, but hey it’s so much more affordable!!!! 🙂

Image

Image

Luckily, I was allowed to pick the color, so I got the darkest one, which is pretty light anyway. I mean the bad thing about Vivienne Sabo is that they have really light, even pinky colors in terms of their foundations, concealers and powders. I have no idea how this fact can be explained, maybe it’s becuse the brand is French and French women have mostly fair skin…

Image

The packaging is sleek and pretty.

Image

Here come my new booties from one of my favourite UK brands River Island. I got them for half the price and I am pretty happy with them. I love how soft the leather is, the studs and buckles.

Image

See? Told you there were cuties=)

Speaking about the sad part, i have no idea, where is my previous River Island order. It’s been almost 20 days, since I placed it. I’ve been contacting RI customer care team, but no one is replying, which is upsetting. I hope my jeans have not been lost 😦

Image

Image

Do you understand why I am so sad now?)

And look who I’ve seen wearing  graffity print RI jeggings:

Yeap, it’s British singer Cher Lloyd.

So yeah, I am very upset that my parcel isn’t coming. And when I’m upset I get…

Nutella is the best therapist, everyone knows that)

Let’s just hope I get my jeans soon! fingers crossed:)

Image

Remember me saying I’m going to show you the dress after alterations and also the way I’ve decided to accessorize it? Here it is. Hope you guys like it 🙂

Image

Image

Image

The dress has awesome golden spikes  on the shoulders, which I’m really obsessed with. Looks really unique, I think. Love stuff that is feminine but edgy at the same time.

Image

For my shoes I was wearing my leopard booties, also from ASOS (love this brand)). They are not only cute, but unexpectedly comfy too.

Image

My favourite clutch from Aldo. Soooo versatile!

Image

As for my arm candy, I was wearing my amazing Paul’s Boutique watch, which I’ve been wearing pretty much everyday, since I got it. On my nails I have one of my favourite nail polishes ever – 762 Plum Attraction by Revlon.

Image

Guess who this is? My GORGEOUS mum=)

Image

Sooooo pretty!!! And I love her dress.
