I have been quite obsessed with Sephora makeup lately and this bronzer is not an exception. First of all, it looks very lux and expensive and it has a big mirror. Second, it’s HUGE!!! It reminds me of Tom Ford bronzer, but it’s way cheaper. And finally, it’s a beautiful product, that looks very natural on your skin and doesn’t make it look orange. It adds some color to your face without being too much. Not great for contouring your cheekbones because it’s quite light, but I love using it for my temples and forehead.

If I ever have to choose only one product from my makeup collection, it will probably be my Vivienne Sabo bronzer (or my Garnier concealer:)

Image

I’ve been using this stuff for a year already. I first got it because I loved the packaging, plus it’s a drugstore product and costs only $8. When I first applied it, I knew it was perfect consistency, shade, smell, just everything. It has very pretty and subtle shimmer to it and it NEVER breaks me out. Also I love how it makes my skin super soft! Just overall it’s the best bronzer I’ve used!

However, a couple of weeks ago when I went to Watson’s,I found that Vivienne Sabo came up with new bronzers, which I immediately wanted to get.

Image

It turned out, it was the same bronzer, just different packaging, which I think is super cute. I use it every time I do my makeup because it gives a very nice sunkissed look without looking orange or too shimmery.

However, if you are looking for a bronzer to contour your face, I recommend getting a darker one without any shimmer, try chocolate Bronzer from Bourjois or Laguna bronzer by Nars.

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 🙂

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.

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
