Azure summer makeup

Written by Posted in Beauty Comments 0

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

My 6 favorite hairstyling hacks featured image v2

I had been dyeing my hair for years until about half a year ago when I realised I have no idea what my natural hair color is anymore (insert awkward moment here). This is how I decided I’m going to stop all the hair coloring nonsense and let my hair breath. And guess what, I really, really love my natural hair color (you can actually see the roots of my hair in the pic above). I used to think my hair was bland and uninteresting so I started searching for the perfect dye while giving it a terrible treatment with every change of color and dye brand. Suffice to

Everyday brown smokey eye makeup tutorial

It seems that the most beloved type of makeup ever is the smokey eye look. Everybody wants to master it, me included, so I’ve decided to show you my take on it – the easy day-time, brown smokey eye. You don’t need much, just a basic 3 nude color palette (matte colors work best during the day, shimmery ones during the evening/night ), your favorite mascara and a light pink eyeliner. Step 1. Let’s start with the base – take your favorite foundation or BB cream, apply a thin layer on your skin and even it out with a brush or

This summer I’m really into bright colors (as you can tell from my previous posts) so this is yet anothersummery look featuring bright oranges. I know my hair’s a mess, I haven’t had time to straighten or curl it before the photoshoot **Just as a side note, I’m typing this while I’m listening to Karl Lagerfeld’s GTA IV K109 radio station DJing – a must-hear. Apparently Lagerfeld “picked his favourite electronica and dance music and peppered the selection with some of his rapid-fire commentary”. ** I feel that you can wear this kind of makeup pretty much anythime during the day. I also think that

What makes a piece of jewelry timeless? A love story with UncommonGoods

Whenever I’m thinking back to my childhood years I vividly remember my mother’s jewelry box – a soft, red velvet cufflink case that enclosed all the wonders of the universe for the ever curious 5 year old girl. I remember how fascinated I was with trying on all the pearl necklaces and bracelets I found inside. It was my most favorite game, one that I never grew bored of. More than two decades later, my passion hasn’t faded a bit; in fact, it has grown steadily and has transformed into a continuous search for the most classic, timeless pieces of jewelry
