Taking a Break ♡

Monday, March 31, 2014
Hey dolls!There's a reason I haven't posted in 2 weeks,and that's,well-school.I had no time for this blog currently because I have a lot of tests and studying to do.So,I didn't want to leave this blog without letting you know why I'm not active on here.Don't expect anything from me for the next 2 weeks.I have so many test I can't breathe and believe me when I'm telling you;writing this post is a luxury.


I hope y'all understand,expect more from me in about 2 weeks.See you later dolls!Until then,

Favorite Mascaras and Lipsticks ǀ March

Sunday, March 16, 2014
Hey dolls!Lipsticks and mascaras are something we all use on a daily basis;in my case,they alternate and change every month.Thought I'd share some of my loves from this month.Sit back and enjoy!


















[MF 2000 Calories, Bourjois Volume Glamorous Max Definition, Manhattan Supersize False Lash Look]



MF 2000 Calories Mascara:This one i s a classic that everyone loves.It has thicker and longer bristles at one end and shorter ones at the other.It's great for achieving voluminous lashes which are extended at the end.The small bristles are great for lower lashes and lashes at the inner corner. 5/5

 Bourjois Volume Glamorous Max Definition: This brush is plastic and it has short bristles.When I first bought it,it was quite liquidy,but after few times using it, it became drier-which I prefer.This mascara gives you amazing volume and length.It does not smear trough the day and it's easy to reapply if needed. 5/5

  Manhattan Supersize False Lash Look:This formula is quite on the liquid side,but I like it never the less.The brush is pretty big so it's not really good for inner corner or lower lashes.I love using this at the very ends of my lashes,as it gives amazing length.That being said,I do find that it kind of sticks my lashes together if I apply a bit more, and then I have to take it off and reapply again. 4/5

 [From left to right:Catrice Ultimate Shine060:Teddy Brown, Catrice Ultimate Color 010:Be Natural, Wet n Wild E902C:Bare It All]

These three have been my best lips friends this month;I'm usually a dark lip kind of a girl,but these are so lovely;it's impossible not to love them.


-The Wet n Wild one is very matte so I often use some lipgloss ot lip base, or I just simply leave it like that.
-Catrice in 010 is a shiny,creamy lipstick that glides on very smoothly.It's very moisturizing but I do feel I need to reapply,it must be because of the creamy formulation.The shade is a very light nude,great for a 'no makeup' look.
-Teddy bown is a shiny, brown color.A tad bit shinier than Be Natural, but just as creamy.A really lovely shade of brown, amazing for everyday. Same as Be Natural,I need to reapply trough the day.

That is it for this week dolls,I hope you enjoyed this post and you come back for more!I'll be inactive on my social media for a while,just an fyi.New post coming on Wednesday/Thursday Central European Time.Have a lovely rest of the day.Lots of love,

How to Take Care of Ombre Hair ǀ Tips

Saturday, March 15, 2014
Hey dolls!I'm so so sorry for not posting  for a week.I've been so busy with school and my books reports,I had no  time to take a single picture.Plus,my phone fell into water and it can't be fixed,which I'm really sad about.
Anyway,in the February of 2013 I dyed the tips of my hair with the L'oreal kit.In June or so,I dyed my entire hair with a platinum blond-the brown part was a light brown/honey color and my ombre were lighter and nicely blended.Now,after dieing my hair 8 shades lighter,it left me with dry,dead ends.Here are some tips on how to take care of your hair and get as less damage as possible;

1.Washing your hair
Now,it's not healthy to wash your hair often even if your hair isn't color treated,but having it color treated is even worse.Often hair washing can really dry out your hair.I suggest leaving your hair as long without washing as you can.Dry shampoo works amazing in this area.Also,try choosing a no-silicone shampoo,such as the Garnier's Ultra Doux Shampoos.

2.Hair masks
They're magic.I've tried plenty and most masks you'll find on pinterest and such sites are amazing.The one I love the most is the olive oil and egg yolk mask.There are many ingredients in your own kitchen that can be used on your hair(eggs,honey,oils,avocado,lemon..).At first,when my hair was quite dry and damaged,I did the mask mentioned above once a week.Now,I do it once-twice a month.Beware though,egg yolk is pure protein and too much of it can also lead to breakage-so don't push it with the masks either.

3.Deep Conditioning 
Conditioner is really important in this story,but a regular one won't help you much.Get a conditioner for dry/damaged hair.[Garnier and L'oreal have amazing conditioners.]That being said,you'll also need to do some extra conditioning-buy a deep conditioning mask or use a diy mask.[Olive oil,coconut oil,argan oil and honey are some great products that you can use.]

4.Regular hair-cutting
If you have two inches of dry ends you need to cut them off.That way,new,fresh,healthy hair can peek trough.If you have layered hair you can cut your hair at home[if you're lazy like me].Preferably,you should cut your hair every 2-3 months.

5.Protection
Nowdays,we all use curling irons,flat irons and other hair-styling tools on daily basis without even realizing of how much heat we actually use.You should use a hair protectant or a serum.I like to apply some argan oil before I apply my protectant,just to give my hair some extra moisture.


I know this post is long,but I'm making up for a week!I'm sorry if this has been boring,I hope I helped even a little bit.I'll see you soon dolls[I promise],

Hazelnut Coffee and Cow Tissues ♡

Thursday, March 06, 2014
Hey dolls!I decided 'February Favorites' is too boring but at the same time I wanted you to know what the hell you're about to read so I came up with this sausage of a name.Anyway,on to the favorites.














Catrice Absolute Eye Color Mono/ 080 Go,Charlie Brown!
-this is a lovely matte, medium brown eyeshadow.It goes well with darker lipsticks or heavier eye looks.










Essence Powder Blush
-I've spotted this in the drugstore and I as soon as I felt the softness of this brush..well the rest is history.It's incredibly soft and it spreads blush wonderfully!Also,the hairs don't fall off at all.














Catrice Liquid Liner/ 010 Dating Joe Black 
-Lately,I've been using liquid liner a lot.I've been inspired by Kylie and Kendall and after trying a fewer I have to say this one's great.It's very dark and with just one dip you can do an entire eye and a half of the rest.Lovely little thing!















Hazelnut Coffee/Cappuccino
-Oh man,this is awesome.I'm always kind alternating between coffee's and cappuccino's and this is just..ugh.The smell of hazelnut fills of the entire room and the taste is not too sweet,just..perfect.














Cow Tissues
-Last but certainly not least,my cow tissues!This made me happy so much this entire month.I dunno,just every time I saw them in my bag I got a smile on my face.I don't know..I'm weird.

I hope you somewhat enjoyed this super random post.Anyway,new post are up Wednesdays and Sundays afternoons Central Europe Time!Hope you come back and thanks for reading,

Alarm

Sunday, March 02, 2014
hey dolls!In the August of last year I made a review on a lipstick from Rimmel in the shade 170:Alarm.Since then,I've fallen in love with this lipstick and it has become my favorite red lipstick.It's quite bright and it adds life back to your face.It's a lovely matte that is easily applied and does not smear trough the day.












I started off by applying my favorite foundation,Bourjois 123 Perfection in 51 Light Vanilla.I then highlighted my nose and covered my circles with Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 20.I set all that with Manhattan's Compact Powder in 03.










Over my entire eyelid I applied Catrice's mono eyeshadow' Bring Me Frosted Cake' and in my inner corner I applied a Wet n Wild shimmery eyeshadow.I applied Catrice's mono eyeshadow in 080 'Go,Charlie Brown!' in my crease and I blended that in on my lower lashline as well.I've put white eyeliner in my inner corner and lower waterline and I applied my MF 2000 Calories Mascara.















Before lipliner and lipstick,I applied a lip base from Catrice just to smooth out any lines or cracks.After that I outlined my lips,because they are uneven,with the Manhattan Extreme Last Lipliner in 44N.(Unfortunately,I had technical difficulties so I lost the picture.)
After that,I filled my lips in with the already mentioned Rimmel lipstick and blended it in with a lip brush.













The finished result.
















The lipstick and the lip base.
