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.

My Christmas wish list

It's the time of gift giving and while I'm always grateful for anything and everything that I may receive for Christmas I also like to make sure that some of the gifts are actually the things I do really want, LOL! We've been doing Christmas, birthday, etc, wish lists for a few years with my husband and it works great for us as it means we get to pick something for the other person that would truly make them happy. Although any surprises are always welcomed as well :)
So after I emailed to Santa, aka my husband, links to the things I'd love to find under my Christmas tree this year I thought I would share some of them with you too in case you're still looking for some inspiration for a gift for beauty loving women in your life or want to get a cheeky treat for yourself.

My latest everyday skincare heroes

Consistent, well tailored to your skin's needs, skincare routine is very important if you want to look your best for the longest time possible. I've been a skincare enthusiast since my late teens and while not all this time I knew what's best for me I was certainly trying to find the perfect products. Fast forward about 18 years and I'm still looking but I am definitely with a much bigger knowledge and experience and, honestly, despite me being in my late 30s, my skin hasn't look better. Well maybe it did before I hit the puberty but that doesn't count, right? :)
As much as I love trying different products I always stick to a certain routine for at least 3, 4 weeks before changing things or introducing new products. This way I know exactly how well, or bad, products work for my skin.

Black Friday beauty haul and Christmas stocking fillers ideas for beauty lovers

 I'm pretty sure that almost every beauty enthusiast was waiting for the Black Friday sales to stock up on favourite products or just treat themselves to some new ones. Well, at least that's what I was planning to do :) But I didn't get crazy as, to be honest, there are sales all year round on beauty sites but I got a few things, some presents for my family and friends which I won't be talking about here and a few treats for myself. Mostly skincare sets as I had them on my wish list for a long time, so when they were 30% cheaper I decided it was the time to buy them. They're very affordable even when full priced and I think they would make a great Christmas stocking fillers or presents for beauty enthusiasts.

Let's get intimate! In2Mate Complete Care range review and giveaway

Cheeky post to start the December with a bang? Why not?!
OK, so the title is rather misleading as I'm not exactly planning to get intimate with you all, LOL!, but will have a quick chat about our intimate beauty routine and introduce you to a new range of natural products created for that: In2Mate Complete Care* (£14.95) including Natural Wash, Moisturiser and Lubricant which you can also buy separately. We are used to talking openly about makeup, skincare or body care but not often we can read or hear someone talking about how they look after their intimate area. We, women, are very vulnerable in this matter, from monthly periods, sex, to child births, our vaginas (yes, I totally used the V word on my blog, LOL!) go through a lot so it should be only natural we look after them as much as for any other part of our body.
