When I feel beautiful I feel more confident in my own skin, I am more bubbly and a more positive person.

Hey Smokey – Make-up Look

Hey guys,

Here I am back with a new make-up look for you guys. The only thing I like about winter is that you can get away with smokey eyes any time. Even though I would still wear this look any time of the year, in winter I find it to be more suitable.  This look is definitely for the daring girls but I believe black smokey eyes look good on anyone if it’s done in the right way, you can have green, blue, brown or black eyes, it will still look good on you. Being that I have big eye lids, smokey eyes never wear me out, but someone with smaller features has to be more careful, but if you do not go above the crease one shouldn’t worry. 🙂

Eyes:

Instructions:

  1. First things first, I always start with an eye-shadow primer, to which I apply it all over the lid and somethimes even on the brows (so that I can shape them the way I want). I started applying a black eye-shadow and applied it all over my lid and made sure to blend it onto the crease with a light brown colour.
  2. Then I use the shimmer white colour under the brow and on the inner corner of the eyes.
  3. Then move on to the eyeliner and to add a different touch to this look I applied the glitter black eyeliner, which unfortunately isn’t so visible in the images. 🙁
  4. Finally I curled my lashes  and applied some mascara and defined my lashes with some black eye-shadow

B3

Products:

  • Urban Decay Potion Primer – Eden
  • Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette – Blackout – Tease
  • Make up store – Satin
  • NYX – The Curve Eyeliner
  • NYX – Eye Pensil -Black Glitter
  • Benefit They’re real Mascara

Cheek + Lips

Instructions:

  1. As to my cheeks, I made sure to contour my skin as much as I can, I find it to be very important when you do smokey eyes. Being that the eyes are so dark, you need to make up for it by contouring or else  your face will look flat. So I used a lot of bronzer around my face and under my cheek bone, then use a nice redish-pink blusher, which gave my skin a bit of life.
  2. For the lips I went for a very natural baby pink, nude colour

Products:

  • Primark – Sunkissed Bronzer
  • MAC- Breezy
  • MAC – Creme cup

So that is all guys, I hope you like this look, I have a couple of interesting looks coming up, and do not forget the Giveaway which I will be hosting pretty soon 😀 So keep posted , thanks for following

Nail Care

Hey guys,

So recently I read a post on the daily mail how gels and acrylics can be harming your nails constantly, which is true. They might look pretty on the surface, but underneath your nails are probably suffering.  My nails were a mess when I removed my acrylics, they were chipping all the time and they had become very sensitive. My nails were so thin, I could almost feel the skin underneath.  Then I started taking care of nails, once I removed the acrylics and did a lot of treatment and stopped biting them. I was always a nail biter so gels and acrylics were my only remedy for me to stop biting them, but all i was doing is harming them even more.

N1

After a lot of treatment my nails have gotten way better, they still need a lot of help and more treatment, but I am very happy with them right now. I never seen my natural nails this long and looking so healthy, so the treatment really payed off.

Tips to get healthier stronger nails:

  • If you are a nail biter, Stop biting your nails, if i did it, so can you.
  • My nails are way healthier thanks to the O.P.I nail envy, it is really a miracle worker. I apply several coats throughout the week.
  • Do not result to gels or acrylics, is it such a waste of money. Nowadays there are very good nail polishes or even gelish that last for a whole week, and not do any harm to the nails. If you have strong and hard nails, go ahead but still it will damage your nails on the long run. Or else get them done one in while
  • I do highly suggest you stop wear nail polish from time to time if you have thin nails, let them breathe for a while. I love wearing nail polishes but then I stop wearing any, for a week or two and give them a nice Nail Envy coat.
  • Make sure to give them a nice filing and buffing, at least once a week or 2 and use cuticle oil if u have.

If you follow these steps and be extremly patient you will have great results in about 2 or 3 weeks. It took me a while to see the results, but it was all worth it.

I hope this was of any help, if you have any further questions, comment down below 🙂

Make Up Store – Nail polish in Anders

Hello guys,

Before I start my review I want to remind you to like my Facebook page, so that I will host an awesome Giveaway. I only have 2 likes left to get 100 likes overall :D. Thank you for your Love and Support xoxo

So a while ago,I treated myself to some of the Make up store’s fabulous products at the Launch of the New Dean Gera’s hair salon Launch. One of them is this lovely dark blue sparkly colour called Anders. This product was part of our goodie bag and I am more than happy that I got this beautiful dark blue polish. I simply love dark colored nail polishes as I believe they are the prefect colors to wear for winter. This product is also in my November Favorited which you can check out here.

A2

Pros:

  • Like all Make up store nail polishes, they come in these sleek transparent bottle with a black matte tap and it contain 8ml of products.
  • This particular colour is from their sparkling range which is this deep blue with sparkly undertones. I love this colour because it it is very wearable, even if it has that “sparkling” factor it doesn’t look childish or our of context if you wear it for work for example.
  • It has a very good pigmentation which you can achieve with one coat but I always ops for a second coat.
  • The staying power of this polish is amazing, it started chipping slightly after 5 days of wear.
  • It retails for about 10.99 euro which is a pretty decent price, not too pricey but not cheap either

A1

Cons:

  • The application was a little bit messy for me, the texture is a little bit too tick but I imagine it because of the sparkly undertones.
  • It does not dry like their usual glossy polishes, it actually dries in a matte way so I did have to apply a top coat on it to achieve the result I wanted.

Will I ever buy this product again? I do have to admit, I fell in love with this colour so I might buy it again, however I’m pretty positive i’ll try some of their other polishes. 

Do I recommend this product? Yes definitely, it a pretty good polish none the less, check their nail polished at their Shop at the Point Shopping Complex – 2 Sliema.

November Favorites

Hello guys :),

Before you know my November Favorites, I though of reminding you to like my Facebook page which you can go trough this link or by simply liking from the right side —> of my page. I only have 6 more likes for an awesome giveaway, so please like and share with your family and friends.

I thought of starting to post my monthly favorites, to give you an over view of the product which I particularly liked and have found super useful during the month.
1

  1. My first favorite is the Stop Cracking lip balm by Anatomicals, to which you can read the review here. Now that it is freezing cold, I needed a lip balm that helped to stop my lips from cracking and leaving them super soft, and this just does the trick.
  2. Second favorite has to be The Curve Eyeliner, by Nyx, click here for the review. I simple love this liner because it is so easy to apply, it transfers pretty well and I apply my liner very fast.
  3. Another great product has to be the Matte white Michroshadow by The Make up store, check out the review on here. I love eye-shadows, especially when they are super pigmented. I use the shadow all the time for my make-up look its easy to apply and very bendable. Love it.
  4. Last buy not least another Make up store product, this time the nail polish called Anders. I still have to review this product but I’ve been using this colour a lot, and I simply love it for fall and winter, keep posted for the review :).

Let me know your favorites down below, would love to get your opinion 😀

XOXO
