Beauty | My Currently Favorite Makeup Products.

I just love when I buy makeup products that I truly use and not letting collecting dust on my shelves or vanity. I have been looking through my makeup collection and I noticed that I either use one brand the whole time. I even buy a new one if I almost finish it, while I have the same product just in another brand laying right next to it! It is quite a waste of money and we all have to know that some makeup products won’t last forever. When the expiration date is over, we need to accept it’s over! I know, it can be hard. We all have been to that point in our lives and I’m not only talking about makeup, if you know what I mean *kuch…kuch…that denim jeans we fitted before those extra pounds…kuch*, so time to step back, reflect and make better choices!

So, instead of running to Douglas to buy goodies that I already have, I went shopping into my own makeup collection. Since I saw the best Essence Cosmetics mascara budget mascara on Reddit, I’m hooked too! It does what it says, you feel like princess with your long eyelashes. I had my Bobbi Brown BB Cream in shade medium for a long time hiding in my makeup drawers. I did not think about it, until I caught myself buying the same BB Cream I use for ages. Time for a change! I’m so liking the Bobbi Brown BB Cream, it has such a good coverage for a BB Cream. I don’t even have to use a concealer to blemish my impurities. How great is that!

Dior, one of my favorite high-end brands. The quality is so good that you don’t need to use a lot for a perfect look. The lip balm moisturizes my lips very well and it leaves a sweet pinkish glow behind. Just Perfect! If I could let you smell Miss Dior perfume, I would Loves. It has a sweet yet wooden smell. A feminine scent with the good of two worlds, sweet and strong!

Makeup brushes, also a thing that I buy when I see one. It’s crazy how many I have. The only good thing about it, is having it back hand when I need to wash my brushes. Even though I have a lot they work very well. The ones from Primark is such a budget goodie! So why change a winning team, right Loves?

I have been looking for ages for the right peachy blush. It was quite a journey, I wanted the right shade. Whenever I thought I had it, I end up with a too orange pigment! Looking like an Oom-pah Loompa is not my intention to be. Glad I found it with the Coral Spectrum blush palette from Zoeva. It has a good pigment, a soft formula and not a chemical smell. The right things I need in makeup. Also, such a holy grail: Huda Beauty 3D highlight palette. I have the Pink Sands shades, the glow it gives is just amazing! To finish it off Loves, MAC Prep + Prime in Rose scented fix pray is such a good product that does what it needs to do: securing makeup all day long!

It was nice sharing with you my currently favs Loves, I’m curious about yours!

Lifestyle | 10 Things I Can’t Live Without.

As I’m writing this blogpost, I’m feeling thankful. I do what I love on a laptop that I wanted and needed. Not only do I use it for my blogging, but also for my college. Making reports to writing blogposts and store pictures is just a glimpse of what I do on my laptop.

The next item I can’t live without, just like many Loves, is my phone. I got an iPhone 8+ and it works perfectly. It is just like my laptop, but in a small size. Again, I do everything with it. Post something on my social media to making notes.

Writing about notes, notebooks! You always will find one in my bag. They are perfect for writings and for to-dos. I also write my blog ideas in it, quick college notes and other scribbles. I am a hoarder when it comes to notebooks. When I see cute ones, I can’t resist to take it and put in the shopping basket. I have them in different shapes and sizes, it is truly like an addiction!

Drinking lots of water is such a struggle, I even forget it! Simply because I’m too busy during my day. To remind myself I got myself a water bottle, a sugar pink one that I put in my bag for on the go.

To relax and have me time after a hectic day, I light candles in my room. When I put the lights out and put a movie on or watch a series on Netflix I come to rest. My body goes instantly into the relaxing mode. I can watch good series or a movie for hours! On top of that, it suits my room decor perfectly.

As I’m writing this list, I have ended up with beauty related items. Wipes are definitely something I need in my bag. They come such in need when I just have eaten between my classes or I feel that my hands need a wipe.

I have to use hand cream after using wipes or washing my hands. My hands tend to feel taut and dry. So, I had to add it into my list! I feel so annoyed when I don’t find one in my bag that I let them in my bags for when I take another bag with me.

Same goes for lip gloss! I’m hooked on the ones from Dior. They are quite long lasting that I only apply it once or twice during my day. Even the glow fades away, I still feel my lips are well moisturized.

When I make myself ready to go, either to my classes or run errands, I have to use perfume. It turned into a habit for me. After using deodorant, I spray perfume on my neck, wrists and on my clothes and hair. I love how the scent pops up when you move during the day!

Jewellery is the last item on my list. If you know me well Loves, I love to add flair into an outfit. Jewellery adds that flair! I feel quite ‘’naked’’ when I forget to put earrings on or rings around my fingers. I just love how it looks on my hands and wrists!

Beauty | Luxurious Lips.

When it comes to beauty products, I can get so excited just by looking at them! Most of the packages and casings have a luxurious appearance that I feel like a kid in a candy store. So much to choose from!

As you can see Loves, I prefer pink-red shades of lipsticks or glosses, because I believe that they match my skin tone. I don’t know if it’s just me, but it gives me a radiant look. They also come close to my natural lip colour especially the lip glosses. Perfect for a daily look!

I added new MAC Lipsticks into my MAC collection. It’s getting bigger and colourful! I even added a brown/wine red shaded one, a colour I normally won’t choose. I’m wearing on this picture MAC Liptensity lipstick in shade Eros. The pigment is so pigmented that I only used a bit, I put my lips together and it was all over my lips. I applied it then on the corners of my lips for a whole look.

Matt lipsticks does not have my preference, I prefer glossy ones. The ones that you can put easily on and remove quickly. I found that perfect one with Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipstick in shade #340 Envious. It goes so smoothly over my lips and it has the perfect red shade! I get a girly vibe when I apply Chanel Rouge Coco in shade #448 Elise. I have written a blogpost about it and I’m still in love with it. I mean, just looking at the Chanel logo makes me excited. Writing about being excited, I also had that feeling when I bought my first Yves Saint Laurent lipstick. I have chosen a sweet pink shade number 43. This sweet pink comes so close to my own lip colour that I don’t need to apply much.

Lip glosses are my ‘’on the road hero’s’’. Perfect for those days when you are in a rush and don’t have time to apply your makeup. Having one in my bag comes so handy! I apply it on my lips to distract it from my tired eyes. Or on my cheekbones for that quick glowy look.

Christian Dior is also a brand I fell in love it. They have such beautiful makeup that I couldn’t chose which beauty product I want. So, when I decided to buy a lipstick, I chose Rouge Dior Baume #568 in shade Rose Rose. It even smells like roses!

What is your perfect shade Loves?
