Pupa Milano – Autumn Collection 2014 – I’M – 002 Berry Voilet

 My apologies to Pupa Milano for the late review however its not easy to find time to blog, when you have a full time job and other crazy things to do.  Last Autumn, I received this gorgeous by Pupa and I was happy like a bird cause it was a tint of colour I have been searching for a while. It is very similar to the MAC Rebel lipstick, but being that at the moment  M.A.C is in-existing in Malta ( not for long 😀 ) I tried to find something similar in other brands.

 The colour is a beautiful plum colour with a mix of purple.  Even though I am very late only reviewing this lipstick, they still have I’M lipstick which very similar in texture and quality. You might not find the same colour but I find the Burgandy 308 to be very similar. So check that out.
What I like about the lipstick is that it’s creamy and very soft on the lips, but also I find it makes my lips fuller, a big thumbs up . The colour is highly pigmented and it stays on for those 4 to 5 hrs depends what you’re doing. Not to mention that it’s paraben free.

One of my favorite things is the curved vintage style packaging, being that it’s a limited collection is comes in a gold tone while the other I’M lipsticks are in a silver colour. Who came up with this design deserves a thumbs up, as it gives the lipstick such a luxury feel. This gorgeous Lipstick costs 12.45 euros in Malta, definitely affordable and worth every penny.

Pros:
  • beautiful very pigmented colour
  • long lasting
  • creamy and light on the lips
  • beautiful vintage packaging
  • affordable

Cons:

  • That it’s a limited edition shade, they should make it permanent 🙁

I hope you liked this review, do check out the Lipsticks from Pupa Milano, they have such a beautiful range.

Wedding Make-Up Look

Before I start explaining this look, I want to apologize for the low quality of the pictures taken. At the moment I am camera-less and I am using my phone, so the quality is not as good. I just ordered a decent digital camera to use in the meantime, as I honestly cannot afford to by a professional SLR camera at the moment.But I am hopeful the quality of the pictures will improve.

Let’s talk about the look, so yeah IT’S WEDDING SEASON. I really get excited during this time, as I get to see what brides get to wear on their wedding day. The look that I created, is what I think would look good on any bride. It’s a very simple make up look, suitable especially for that bride which is not use to wearing a lot of make-up, but would still like to look good for their wedding day.

Bridal Tips:

I see a lot of mistakes in make-up that many make-up artists do on a bride. 1 Never put have make-up on the bride, no matter who’s the client, you have to make them a better version of themselves not transform them into someone else.  2 Never follow the trends, red lips are very much in vogue right now, however they don’t look good on everyone especially on someone with small lips. Also what looks good now, might not look good 20 years from now, so make sure your make-up is timeless.

Instuctions:

  • For this look always start with a very good eye primer, you want your make up to stay put as long as possible.
  • After that I start by applying a matte white colour on the brow bone and into the inner corner of the eye.
  • To add to the white I like to use a shimmery beige colour on the white and follow with a gold and peach tone on the middle of the lid.
  • I like to use a frosty brown colour on the outer lid and onto the crease, finishing of with a tint of black colour and blend it all out with a unused brush.
  • Apply a nice sleek eyeliner, make sure it’s not to thin and not to thick and build up the lashes with some mascara. I do suggest individual fake lashes to go with this look.
  • Finally I apply some pink/red blush to create healthy rosy cheeks and very natural lipstick.
  • If you want some color on the lips go for some pink shades. I find it ideal.

Smoking Yellow – Make-Up Look

Spring is not doubt with us and after Easter I was in the mood to lay with bright colours. About two months ago when I was in Italy, I bought this beautiful dress by H&M, and on the front it has these beautiful florals with bright colored jams. So I let the dress inspire me to create this make up look.

 Instructions:

  • I always start the make up look by priming my eyes and then fill in my eyebrows with a mixture of brown and black eyeshadow. My eyebrows are a very dark brown colour, almost black so I like mixing both colours.
  • Then I applied a matte white colour on the brow bone and onto the inner corner of my eyes, this is a good trick which will make your eyes bigger and wider than they already are.
  • Following I applied a light brown on to the crease, this will serve as a base for the mixture of shadows, it will help with the blending of the colours. Then I apply a tiny amount of a very brown colour on the outer lid and blend it with the rest, still leaving an empty space on the middle of the lid.
  • Now it’s time to work our way on the middle lid, on which I applied a beautiful bright yellow shade and as usual, blend blend, blend :).
  • Finally I topped more shadow on the outer lid and onto the crease, this time in with a black colour. Finished off by applying eyeliner and mascara.
  • As for the cheeks I used a nice red toned blusher and I left the lips natural as possible using a baby pink neutral lipstick.

Bio Oil – Review

Today I want to talk about a product I’ve been using a lot and sincerely loving. Since I was a teenager I had problems with stretchmarks, the same way I had problems with my weight. I constatly gained and lost weight and stretch marks were the result of it all.  Recently I’ve been taking care of my body and trying to avoid having more stretchmarks than I already do, so I am using this Bio Oil.

Bio1

I bought Bio Oil from the Uk the first time and I they are way cheaper than here in Malta, however it depends where you get them from and how much product you have. I do know that Holland and Barret sell them however I am not sure about the pricing. I will check and update you guys.

“Bio‑Oil is a specialist skincare oil that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone.
It is also effective for ageing and dehydrated skin. The Bio‑Oil formulation is a combination of plant extracts and vitamins suspended in an oil base. It contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil?, which changes the formulation?s overall consistency, making it light and non-greasy, ensuring that the goodness contained in the vitamins and plant extracts is easily absorbed.”

Bio-Oil should be massaged in a circular motion into the scar and surrounding skin, twice daily, for a minimum of 3 months. Younger scars have a greater chance of improvement within a shorter time period, however, older scars will also benefit from the regular use of Bio-Oil.

Bio2

I have been using Bio Oil for the last 2 months or so and I’ve seen a huge improvement. The scars haven’t completely gone but more of the scars have faded away. I will keep on applying in the hopes of having other scars fade and be less visible especially in summer. The oil is transparent and it is absorbed quickly onto the skin.I highly recommend this product for stretch marks as it truly does the work and it’s not that expensive as some other products I’ve seen on the market.

Bio3

We all know that Pregnancy can cause stretchmarks, however if you are planning on losing weight and you have increased your fitness level try to apply this sort of oil to preserve the skin and prevent it from causing stretchmarks.

Random Make-Up Look – Spring Plum

Hello Beautiful people,

I truly missed doing make-up looks for you guys, however like any artist I need my muse. Like any other muse it is not available on speed dial, and it comes and goes when it wishes. Yet I still wear make-up when I go out and I thought of showing you random make-up looks I wear now and then. Even if they don’t stand out as much as some other looks I do, I  still think you might like them :D.

This Make-Up look I named it Spring Plum, being that now we are finally in spring time and I used a beautiful Plum shadow for the eyes. I mixed the plum colour with a darker brown shade on the crease, some black liner and Pink lipstick and Voila.
