Makeup tutorial: deep purple smokey eyes and mauve lips

If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen that I recently got some more Colourpop products, once you start trying out their lip products or eyeshadows it's hard to stop buying more, LOL! As soon as I swatched my new eyeshadow in shade Bae (seriously, is that even a word? I had to Google the meaning of it after hearing it everywhere a while back, haha!) I knew I had to create dark smokey eye look. Bae is a gorgeous aubergine shade with purple and blue sparkling flecks, it looks so dimensional that you don't need much else to have a gorgeous eye makeup in a few minutes.
I paired the eyes with mauve lips, another new Colourpop addition to my lipstick collection, but it would look as pretty with a nude shade.

September beauty favourites

Not every month I write a favourites post, simply because not every month I have new makeup or skincare loves but in the last few weeks I've been rather obsessed with some new additions to my beauty stash but also very much loving some older stuff so here I am today with September favourites :)

Skincare "empties", products I've used up lately

It's been a while since I wrote an 'empties' post but seeing as my little basket for empty containers is starting to overflow I've decided to share with you my thoughts on the products that I managed to finished up in the last few months. There were so many things that I split them for two posts and today will be sharing with you only skincare products. I usually never keep empty packages of body lotions, lip balms, hand creams or everyday hygienic products like shower gels etc. as they seem a bit boring to talk about but rest assured I do use them regularly, LOL!

Makeup tutorial: metallic eye liner & metallic lips

If you read my recent post on metallic lipsticks you know that I've been playing with them and, to my surprise, I actually enjoy wearing them. Granted, they're not my everyday lipstick choice but they're fun and make a statement. Today I'm sharing with you makeup look I created using one of my metallic liquid lipsticks not only for my lips but also for the eyes. It happened to be excellent as an eye liner :)
If you need some inspiration on what eye makeup to pair with your metallic lips then I hope you'll enjoy this makeup tutorial!

Affordable stylish earrings from Happiness Boutique

I might not be the most fashionable person but even I know that great accessories can make a whole outfit look much better and even though on everyday basis you'll see me wearing only my wedding ring I like to make more effort on weekends or when going out. I've always loved wearing beautiful earrings so when I was offered to try something from Happiness Boutique collection I jumped straight to their earrings selection.
Happiness Boutique is a Berlin based jewellery brand, available online, with wide collection of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings and more. All made of high quality materials, lead and nickel safe.
I've seen many of my favourite bloggers reviewing and loving their products so I was very excited to pick my pieces.

Metallic lips trend: Yay or Nay?

Isn't it fascinating how the trends in beauty world are changing? One year we absolutely adore wearing one thing, the next one we're embracing something else we never thought we would.
Over the last few years beauty enthusiasts became madly in love with matte lipsticks, every well respected brand brought them out within their ranges and when I finally jumped on the bandwagon and started enjoying them (always a bit late to the party, LOL!) it seems like the world is already getting crazy about metallic lips.
So this time I decided to attend the party while it's still fresh and hot and bought a few metallic lipsticks to try out the new trend.
And today I want to share with you my thoughts on them and if I'm sold on the new lip fashion.

For my eye makeup I used Morphe Brushes 35T palette which has a wide selection of beautiful, not only taupe, but also mauve and purples tones.

Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation - review with before & after photos

Every makeup enthusiast agree that having flawless looking base should be the first step to a great makeup, so unless you were blessed with a perfect skin, chances are you've been on a quest for that ONE foundation that ticks all the boxes for you. I know I have!
My skin used to be quite oily but not anymore, it's been lately a combination of oily T-Zone, normal cheeks and some dry patches which I've no idea why they're here. My skin also gets dehydrated quite often.
Although I've tried many foundation, some of them really nice, I'm yet to find one that I would be 100% happy with. I have a list of foundations I want to try as long as my arm, and I'm slowly but surely going through it, but every now and then a new release pops out and catch my attention immediately.

The mauve edit: my favourite lipsticks and blushes

Mauve is a shade I adore in makeup, especially in lipsticks and blushes, not quite neutral but not bold either, somewhere between, perfect for day time but also beautiful paired with smokey eyes at night. I usually let all the mauve lipsticks and blushes rest during Spring and Summer but when the weather starts changing I happily bring them back as they're one of my favourites to wear during colder months.
Last week I shared with you lipsticks that will nicely transition my makeup from Summer to Autumn and today let's focus on those pretty mauve shades.

Makeup tutorial: simple makeup look for beginning of Autumn

As we're slowly but surely approaching Autumn I've decided to start sharing with you some Autumn/Fall makeup looks and we're kicking off today with a super simple, yet very pretty, look that it's perfect for the beginning of Autumn. Still warm and golden but with a hint of Autumnal shades. The eye look is super simple, requires only three eyeshadows but because of the duo-chrome nature of one of them (Karma) it looks much more complex.
Without further ado let's get to the tutorial.

Dr Botanicals Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil - review

Facial oils have been part of my daily skincare routine for more then a year now and I'm really enjoying using them. They replaced my night time moisturisers as I find them more effective at what they do and perfect to use at night without worrying if they will affect the oiliness of my skin during the day and application of my makeup.
So when I was kindly sent the Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil from Dr Botanicals I eagerly added it to my skincare routine. I've been using it every day for the last month or so and today I want to share with you my thoughts on it.

My favourite Summer to Autumn transitional lipsticks

As much as I don't want Summer to go away for the year the truth is that it's already September, today is the first day of new school year in UK and Autumn is just around the corner. So, although with heavy heart, I'm putting away my Summer clothes and makeup and I'm bringing back sweaters, boots and all the Autumnal shades of my lipsticks, eyeshadows, blushes and nail polishes that I am actually getting excited about. After a few months of wearing bright pinks and corals on my lips it will be quite refreshing to reach for different shades.
Today I want to share with you a few of my lipsticks which I like to call 'Summer to Autumn shades', they are those that I like to enjoy fully before jumping to all my deep berries and wine reds when Autumn and Winter are in full swing. These are the rich earthy tones of brown, terracotta and plummy pinks.

Makeup makeover: daytime glam for mature skin

I hadn't done makeup makeovers in ages so when my mum was visiting us last week and we had plenty of time to ourselves I thought it was the perfect opportunity to play makeup and share the results with you, guys. As much as I love applying makeup on myself I also get very excited when I get the chance to do it on someone else. A bit of makeup can make a massive change to women's
confidence and seeing my mum looking and feeling fabulous was a fantastic feeling. I even encouraged her to start wearing a bit more makeup on everyday basis and she left with a makeup bag full of different products, haha!
