Affordable makeup brushes, my everyday essential eye and face brushes

I have done already this kind of post a few months ago (check it out here) but I've decided to do an updated version of it, especially that I have some new brushes which have become my favourite. Despite having lots of makeup brushes I usually reach for just a few of them on daily basis and, truthfully, they're enough to do a full face of makeup. Also they're all very affordable so whether you're just starting completing your makeup brushes collection or just need something extra, none of them will break the bank.

Skinade Collagen Drink - the best diet supplement for youthful looking skin?

We all know that our beauty starts from within, unless we're pretty lucky with our genetics we need to look after our skin very well to maintain its youthful look for as long as possible. Good skincare should help to achieve that but nothing will work miracles if our diet is not nutritious enough, if we consume lots of junk food, sugar, alcohol, smoke and/or don't drink lots of water. Sometimes, even when we do try to have a healthy lifestyle our body, skin lack some important nutrients, vitamins and microelements to make it look and feel good and healthy. That's when diet supplements can help. I'm not their biggest advocate but I do reach for them when I feel like my body is lacking certain vitamins and my diet hasn't been the best.
Today I want to talk about a diet supplement that is different from your regular multivitamin tablets, it's a collagen drink enriched with Vitamins and microelements which promises younger looking skin.
But, does it really work?

My favourite beauty discoveries of 2016 - makeup

Happy New Year guys! Hope you had a great festive time and a good start to 2017!
I thoroughly enjoyed my blogging break over Christmas and New Year but I'm back to the blogging world with my favourite beauty discoveries of 2016. I tried and used lots of products last year, many of them have made onto my favourites list but today I want to share with you only those little gems that I discovered in 2016, not all of them are new releases, they were just new to me. I was initially planning to talk about makeup and skincare in one post but I've realised that it would be a bit too long and I don't want to bore you, in fact I want you to get as excited about these products as I am and try them in 2017 if you haven't already.

Bloggers Secret Santa and my Christmas beauty gifts

Hello all! Hope you had amazing Christmas! Mine was super relaxing and full of joy, happiness and way too much food :)
Just as promised in my last post I'm coming today to you with a fun collaboration with some of my best blogging friends. Me, Dorota, Leanne, Siobhan and Nishi have been talking on Twitter for a few months and we've become good friends. I'm so glad to be a part of such lovely and supportive group. We decided to do Secret Santa between us and today we'll be sharing with you what we got and who our Secret Santa was :)
And to continue with the Christmas gifts theme I've decided to show you what I got from my family. I had never done those 'what I got for Christmas' posts as I always felt a bit silly showing my gifts but considering I've shared many beauty hauls on this blog let's count this as another one.

New Year's Eve party makeup look: smokey eyes with two lipsticks options

Christmas is just around the corner and I can't quite believe that 2016 is about to end! As soon as the Christmas is done and dusted most of us will be thinking of how and where to celebrate the last night of this year and with that in mind I created this smokey eye look to give you some inspirations for your makeup. 
The moment I got the Makeup Geek Insomnia pigment I couldn't wait to use it on my eyes and it's absolutely perfect for a night time party. It has black base with some red reflex and metallic silver/teal sheen, it's stunning!
I paired the eyes with nude lips but also gave you the option of a deep berry lips. Both lipsticks look equally beautiful with this eye look but the choice depends on your preferences. Me being me would pick the vampy option, simply because I love bold makeup, especially for a night out.

Introducing DERMO28 skincare brand and giveaway of two sets of DERMO28 Unica'Mas Kits

One of the biggest advantages of being a beauty blogger have been getting the opportunities to discover new brands and try new products. When I was approached by PR for DERMO28 I have to admit that I didn't have any idea about the brand but a quick look at their website got me all excited about trying out their products.
DERMO28 was born in 1995 in Italy thanks to a team of professionals highly specialized in therapy and treatment of skin. The name DERMO28 was not born casually: 28 days is the period that cells employ to regenerate which is a synonym of life and energy. The secret of DERMO28 Research Facility consists in creating cosmetics with a high concentration of active ingredients, absolutely safe and applied with specific and exclusive procedures customized for any skin concern.

Simple Christmas Day makeup look: golden eyes and metallic lips

Christmas Day will be in exactly 10 days and the excitement level is raising. If you're anything like me you're probably still doing your Christmas shopping, planning all the cooking and food preparation, wrapping gifts, sorting out the outfit, etc. Basically running like a mad woman :)
But one thing that it doesn't stress me out is my makeup for the Christmas time, I know it will be simple and quick because who wants to spend a long time getting ready instead of enjoying the magical day, but still pretty because I want to look glammed up on the day.
For my Christmas Day makeup I choose golden eyes and red, sparkly, metallic lips. Classic but with a little twist. Simple but effective.
