3 great products for dehydrated skin

Dehydrated skin is a common problem during Winter time and I regularly suffer with it even though I try to take good care of my skin. A few weeks ago I noticed that all my favourite foundations just wouldn't look right on my face, the first sign for me that my skin needs some extra hydration and nourishment. I tried to drink more water and thought that would do, but unfortunately I got to the point when my skin would feel tight and uncomfortable during the day even after moisturising it in the morning. So I knew it was time to upgrade my skincare routine. As a real beauty junkie I have a drawer full of skincare products waiting for their turn so I rummaged through them and picked couple to swap my morning serum and moisturiser for and also rediscovered an old favourite moisturising mask.
After adding these 3 products to my morning and evening routine my skin has recovered within 2 weeks and once again feels hydrated, soft and nourished.

5 steps to thicker and longer looking lashes in seconds

If you're like me and weren't blessed with amazing lashes then chances are mascara is your 'must-have' makeup item and you're always looking for ways to make your lashes appear thicker and longer. Unless you go for lashes extensions or wear false lashes daily, making your natural lashes look thick and fluttery is not an easy task. But I have some tips for you which I've been following for some time and I'm much happier with how my lashes look on daily basis.

Trialling... Time Bomb skincare

It's not a secret that I love trying new skincare products, finding new formulas that work best for my skin and seeing it looking its best thanks to great quality and effective ingredients. But it usually takes some time to be able to see the effects of skincare products, that's why my favourite ones are face masks/treatments as the results of using them are almost immediate and you can see if they work for your skin straightaway.
So when I was asked if I want to try some Time Bomb products I excitedly picked some face masks and started testing them out as soon as they were delivered.
Time Bomb is a fairly new brand on UK market but it's a division of Federici Brands, a privately held company with a 25 years legacy of delivering high quality products.

Makeup look: Winter-y silvers and purples

There's something about Winter and cold weather that makes me reach for cooler tones in my makeup, especially taupe, purple and silver. And today I want to share with you this cool toned makeup look which I created recently. I really wanted to wear this purple lipstick, Urban Decay After Dark, so I basically made the makeup around it :) Because of the blue shift the lipstick has it matches the cooler tones really well.

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.
