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.

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

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.

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’.

This is how it looks on my skin.

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

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.

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

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:

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

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

Damn I still can’t believe I am 23 already)lol The time is flying too fast! But we all know, that there are two awesome things about having a Birthday – spending time with people you love, and GIFTS=))))) And because everyone is aware of my makeup obsession, I got so many makeup gifts, plus I bought alot too.

So here are things I got recently:

Image

I got a couple of items from Sephora, some of them were pretty good deals btw

Image

I seriously love this makeup bag. I got the largest one and it’s really spacious. It fits alot of makeup  and it doesn’t look too bulky. Love it.

Image

I got this eyeshadow for $3!!!)

Image

Okay this highlighter/eyeshadow is AMAZING!!!!! Not only the packaging is great (the surface of this stuff has gorgeous snake print), but it’s also increadible quality! And you can use it as 4 different eyeshadows or a highlighter. And I got it for$7:)

Image

I also got these lipsticks. As you can see I am really into nude lip right now)

Image

I also got these lipsticks from Vivienne Sabo. Love how moisturising they are. And the colors are super vibrant too.

Image

My lips have been a bit chapped lately, so I got this lovely lip treatment from Neutrogena. VERY moisturising and not sticky at all.

Image

This Pupa kit is great! The eye makeup remover is very gentle, even for my extremely sensitive eyes and the mascara was unxpectedly good. I mean I had a mascara from Pupa a couple of years ago and I wasn’t impressed with the quality, but this one is my new favourite!

Image

And the last, but definitely not the least is Lee Stafford. Works great for my hair. So I got these two bottles on my birthday. Totally recommend. A bit pricey but 100% worth it!
