I wanted to do an August favourites first, but then I realized I used pretty much the same stuff during Summer. So these are the products I enjoyed using for a while now and that I plan to continue using.

Image

These are my basics and products I can survive on πŸ™‚

First – the best BB cream for oily/combination Β skin – Garnier’s Miracle Skin Perfector. Β I got this in ‘Light’ and ‘Medium’ (they have only 2 shades), but now since I have tan I use the darker one. It’s great! Blends well, looks well and feels really light on my skin. It is also very buildable – sometimes I just put a tiny bit, but sometimes if I go out and want some more coverage, I use more of this BB cream and it definitely works well, better than most highend foundations I tried! So yeah, definitely thumbs up for another lovely Garnier product. And if you have sensitive, dry or normal skin, they have these BB creams for different skin types – just check your local drugstore.

Second – my Vivienne Sabo mascara, another basic product for me. It makes my lashes look thick and long, and has a more natural finish. If you want a dramatic look, just add more coats.

Third – my favourite Summer lip products, I’ve been using non-stop lately. Mac’s ‘Creme Cup’ and Rimmel’s nude in ’03’ look fabulous on tan skin. Plus these lipsticks are great quality. As for the lipgloss from Sephora – ’42 Precious Pink Jewels’, it’s gorgeous. I don’t know what else to say about it, because I have mentioned it in so many posts, but it’s really lovely. Great brush, delicious smell, lightweight non-sticky formula, vibrant colors and it definitely keeps my lipstick on so much longer. Best lipgloss ever!

And, finally, my last beauty favourite – my little eyeshadow palette from Sephora. I love the packaging, because it’s really small and fits in every makeup bag. The eyeshadows are great quality. Especially I love the highlighting shade, which looks gorgeous in iner corner of the eye.Β 

For my music favourites, I’ve discovered a new band, I have never heard of before. Architecture in Helsinki is an amazing indie pop band from Australia (yeap, I thought they were from Finland too at first :).

These are my favourite songs right now

And finally, my favourite Summer 2013 movie isΒ

it’s hilarious, another great comedy. Definitely watch it, if you haven’t yet!

Hi guys!

Just wanted to show you guys these two lovely items by MAC, that actually were a gift from my friend Alina. I luuuuuuuve them!!!!

I am really excited whenever I get something from MAC, because where I live now we don’t have any MAC store 😦 And yes, unfortunatelly such places do exist 😦 So every time I travel or my friends go somewhere, my target is MAC))) Obviously, there is a lot of fuss going on around this makeup brand, but come on guys their quality is AMAZING!!! Honestly, I have never been disappointed with a MAC product.

Image

Lovely, right?))) Okay, let’s start with the blush. I’ve been looking for a perfect coral/peachy color for a while now, and from the moment I saw this blush in color ‘Peaches’, I knew wanted it. Again, the quality is great, lovely texture, the blush is very buildable. But I think this shade looks better on deeper skintones, so I am looking forward to being tan again))

Image

The lipsticks is very nice too. Love the packaging and that it’s very moisturising, also it tastes good, not too sweet. It looks much more beigy/brown than on the photo. The lippy is in color ‘Creme cup’, if you are wondering. I think it’s a perfect pink/nude color, that will suit anyone, no matter your skin tone or hair color.

Hello ladies,

Speaking about Spring 2013 makeup trends, you can definitely notice how fresh and nice the skin of models on the catwalk is. And it’s very achievable too! Just pick your favourite natural finish foundation ( I am really liking Maybelline’s 24h foundation at the moment), and don’t forget about blush! Corals and pinks are huuuuuuuugeee this season. You can find a beautiful coral/peach blush at MAC (‘Peaches’ is lovely) and obviously ‘Coralista’ by Benefit. As for pinks, lovely satin finish pink, I recommend MAC’s ‘Well Dressed’, or a more affordable version by Rimmel in 020 ‘Pink Rose’.

ImageImage

Another spring trend, both makeup and fashion-wise, is bright colors. In Makeup, you can choose between lovely bright lipsticks, or add a little bit of bold color to your eye makeup.

ImageImageI

I love these eye makeup looks! They are bold but still very subtle. Also I like simple smokey eye on the lid with a bit of sparkly green/blue eyeshadow on the lower lash line.

For bright spring lipsticks definitely try out Rimmel’s Kate Spring Collection. The colors are vibrant and the product is amazing.

Image

Also, if you are looking for a dupe for YSL lip stains, try these babies

Image

Hohestly, Rimmel makeup is very good quality for a very affordable price.

And finally, lashes and brows. Make them fuller and bigger this spring. Try to pull off the famous ‘cara delevigne’ brows and thick flirty lashes.

Hope you guys enjoyed

xoxo

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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

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.Β 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.Β  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,

Today’s post is 100% dedicated to my obsession with lipsticks πŸ™‚

I would like to start by saying, that I do prefer moisturizing lippies, over dry ones. Also it’s great when a lip product smells good. I like pretty vibrant colors, and I am definitely not a fan of lipsticks that have chunky glitters.

I did swatches for you guys:

Image

From left to right:

  • Vivienne Sabo Charme de Vous 107 (available at Watson’s)
  • Vivienne Sabo Charme de Vous 113
  • Rimmel Kate lipstick in 03
  • Vivienne Sabo Rouge Vintage 411
  • Sephora Rouge Shine 02
  • Vivienne Sabo Charme de Vous 112
  • Barry M 100
  • Vivienne Sabo Charme de Vous 101

All of these lippies are amazing quality and nice colors, but if I had to chose one, I would pick Vivienne Sabo Charme de Vous lipstick in 112. It’s soooo flattering!!! I remember buying it for the first time, I was with my cousin and my bff. We all look very different – different skintones, hair colors, eye colors, face shapes, etc, but we got this lippy in the same color, and it looked stunning on each of us. So yeah, if I had to use one lip product for the rest of my life, I would pick this shade without any hesitation.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post,

Hugs&kisses

And Merry Christmas to everyone!
