Pearls on purple

A few months ago I found this beautiful, old pearl necklace in my mom’s jewelry case. It’s as vintage as you can image and I love it. So I decided to find a look that would go well with it and went for deep purple lip and the classic, pin-up style cat-eye. I think pearls are the most elegant pieces of jewelry, don’t you agree? Love, Ana

How I straighten my hair without a flattening iron

I usually get bored with hairstyles really quickly so going one day for curls and the other for pin straight hair is something that happens frequently with me. Since my hair is kind of thin, I try to avoid using flattening or curling irons as much as I can. Instead I do the following: I use hair products which have been formulated for straight hair and then blow dry my hair straight using a large barrel brush and the coolest heat setting. It may take a little longer but the results will be just as good. I use an anti-frizz serum after washing, then

I’ve been missing the sea terribly this year so I’ve been trying to incorporate some of that maritime feeling into my latest makeup looks. Since I don’t wear a lot of makeup on a daily basis (most of the time I’m perfectly fine with just a BB cream and concealer) this look is nothing fancy, just the kind of makeup you can put on in about 4 minutes. I used a neutral taupe eyeshadow as a base and opted for my Maybelline’s Eye Studio Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Tenacious Teal for the cat-eye look. It’s a lovely color that is bound to make you happy while wearing

youutbe makeup masters featured post

Who doesn’t love a good makeup tutorial from a pro? I still have a lot to learn myself and even if I know some great makeup tips and tricks, there’s always room for improvement. So today’s post is all about my favorite Youtube makeup artists. Perhaps you are wondering why I’m calling them “masters” instead of “gurus”, but truth be told I simply hate the term “guru” – it’s overused, has lost its meaning and I think way too many people are being labled as “gurus” before actually becoming ones. I’m  going to start with the ever so lovely Lisa Eldrige. Even though I
