New Years Eve Look



Today I was experimenting on doing my makeup because I don't want to have mess when I need to get ready for the party. So here are the rezults of my attempt to do a makeup for the evening. This time I went a little bit darker with my eyes because it look great in the evening. For the outfit I decided to pick a simple cream blouse and black pants also I wear my wedges which I love so so much. Wedges are comfortable for long walking so I thought that they will be great to wear to the party. So tell me what do you think about this look, I appreciate every single commnet you leave!

Look Of The Day | Issue #1



Heeey, I just wanted to show you guys my makeup for today. I had a meeting with my best friend so I went easy with my makeup and I've used a neutral eyeshadow colors and a bit of mascara to finish look. I wasn't feel like adding any liner because I wanted to stay natural and pretty. And of course I've used my nude lipstick because I think it suits everyone and every look. So everything is in your hands, tell me what do you think!

Nails Inc. Nail Polishes




I'm a really messy and lazy person so I don't spend much time by doing my nails. I found it very boring and much time requiring activity so my nails are usually varnished with plain base coat just for the shiny and tidy look. But not long ago I found a fantastic brand called Nails Inc. I haven't tried their products before, but when I had an amazing opportunity to try them I was extremely surprised by their nail polishes. When I opened the tube of this nail polish it looked like ordinary nail polish and the consistence doesn't looked that amazing. To be honest it looked like cheap nail polish at first, but when I applied it on my nails it coated them very smoothly and they looked perfect even after first coat what any other cheap nail polish can't do that. What is more it dries very fast so I don't ruin my nails anymore by touching something. I will leave a link where you can find this brand products and I hope you will like them as much as I like! You can find Nail Inc shop HERE.


Let me know what is your favourite nail polish brand in the commnets!

Christmas Haul



Have you ever tried this nail polish? I've tried it today and I must to say that it's amazing! It's really easy to apply, it glides on my nails very well and it dries so so fast. It's really important to me that nail polish dries fast because I'm really messy person and I always ruin my nails by touching something accidentally. So I can say nothing, but the compliment to this brand nail polish. I highly recommend you to try this out!


I got this for my cousin for Christmas. I think that little items like this is a really good stocking filler because they are so cute and adorable, I would love to get something like this so I thought that my cousin would love it too. 


Next item I got is this really amazing item. It's a brow filler from avon. It's a very nice brown colored pencil which I'm going to use not only for my eyebrows. There are days when I just don't want to wear much makeup, but I don't want not to wear makeup at all anyway. So I think it's a great way to change your ordinary black eye pencil to something not too dark and dramatic. The pencil is very soft and easy to apply. I'm inlove with this pencil!


Yeah, yeah, don't judge me, it's another They're Real mascara tube. I've felt so inlove with this mascara that I couldn't help myself not to buy another one. I think it's not necessary to talk about it again, you can find my thoughts about this item in my Drugsore Haul post.


I needed a little mirror that I can just put in my bag and use it when I need it so I got this little mirror that zooms my face and it's really useful when putting mascara or eyeliner because I need accuracy when doing it. haha. It has one side that zooms and one side normal and it's soooo amazing!


I was looking for mattifying face powder for ages, but I can say that none of my tried was great, but this powder is exceptional. It doesn't creates that mummy look when you apply it all over your face so I'm not afraid to use it. My skin is used to get really oily throughout the day, but this powder is my life saver and when I use it I can trust that it will keep my skin matt and smooth all day long. I'm really glad that I've found that powder!


And the last thing I got is theese cute little earrings. I love the way they look in my ears. They create that elegant shiny look and spice up every outfit. I love them so so much!

I really hope that you'll like this post. Leave the comment down below and say what do you think about theese items I got. Love you! x

My Everyday Makeup Routine


I thought that it would be amazing to show you guys my everyday makeup routine. Here I have a few products and I want to show you how I do my makeup for everyday. I don't use a foundation or concealer at the moment because my skin gets very irritated, tired and so on, so I just stop using foundation and I use only moisturizer to moisten my skin to keep it fresh and healthy. As you can already know, I'm using Lumene Glow Without Shine moisturizer and I can say that it's amazing! If you want to read about it more you can check my posts and I have a review on it. Again I'm using only moisturizer and my skin feels really flawless.

Lumene Glow Without Shine moisturizer
The Body Shop eye pencil

After I moistened my face I usually use a grey eye pencil to define my eyebrows. Naturaly my eyebrows are really dark (thanks mum), but I like to fill them up with brown or grey pencil because I prefer filled eyebrows more than eyebrows with gaps. So at the moment I'm using The Body Shop eye pencil in shade french navy and I really like it. If you want a review on this item let me know!

Ruby Rose eye liner
When my eyebrows are nice and filled then I use eyeliner. This eyeliner is like pencil I don't know how to describe it. haha, but you can smudge by creating kind a smokey eye look. So I line a really small line and slightly smudge it with my finger and it looks great.

Essence eyeshadow
Essence is my favourite eyeshadow brand from the drugstore because their eyeshadow is really inexpencive and really great pigmented. I use this color for the corners of my eyes to brighten them up and to create more awake look. My eyes look like zombie eyes in the morning so brigtening the corners of my eyes is my daily routine. I like this color becase it's not too shimmery and not to matt. It creates a really good look.

Benefit They're Real mascara
My currently favourite is Benefit They're Real mascara so I'm using it for my everyday makeup look. My eyelashes are really thin and I need several coats of it, but it does a really great job by thikening and extending them. Ohh and one more thing! I never forget to curl my lashes before putting on the mascara, because when I curl my lashes my eyes look more open and bigger.

Oriflame lip balm
In the end I use my Oriflame lip balm to moisten my lips and make them a little bit shiny. It's an amazing nourishing lip balm, especially it is good in winter time because my lips often get really dry. I like to put this on because it's kinda finishes the look.

This is all the products and techniques I use for my everyday makeup. I hope you'll like it. Let me know what do you think in the comments below!

New Mac Brush Set





I was tired of using my finders to put my makeup on. I have already had a few brushes, but they was only for eyeshadows so I decided to browse an internet and order new ones. Yesterday I received a package with my lovely new brushes. I was so so happy! It's a mac 12pcs brush set, but I will tell you the truth those brushes isn't real mac brushes, they just have a mac sign on them. I ordered them on ebay and paid about 13$, so I think it's a very good value for money. I can't afford the real mac brushes because they are so damn expensive, but I wish I could... But for now I will enjoy my fake ones. Brushes are really soft and pleasant to touch. I haven't tried to put my makeup on with those brushes, but I'm really looking forward to try them! I think that it won't be much difference between putting makeup with real and with fake brushes. And I also think I will do much more tutorials related to makeup and stuff now. 
Let me know what do you think about fake and real brushes. Which ones do you prefer more?

My Pamper Evening


Every girl needs a relaxing time to forget all the tiredness in hot bath. So today I decided to have a pamper evening and pamper myself. As I was working hard all this week it was necessary to rest for me. I love pamper evenings so I invite you to enjoy yourselves this evening. And this is what I usually do to pamper myself.


I usually use a shower gel to wash all my body. I picked Dove shower gel because it smells really good and makes my skin feel extremely smooth and soft. It smells like almond milk, oh God the scent is sooo amazing, I'm inlove with it!


After the joy of the hot bath I use a body lotion and a body mist. Here I have a Fruttini Passion Fruit body lotion and Oriflame Aimi body mist. I like to smell good so I use those products just for smelling good.


Face is a a very important thing on the pamper evening. I like to use a scrub first and after that I refresh and restore my skin with face mask. I picked My Face scrub and Aromatherapy face mask. I highly recommend the face mask. It is made from natural ingredients and have a rose water in it.


After all the body treatments it's time to move to your hair. My hair need extra care so I'm using a lot of products to revive them. First I use my Timotei shampoo to wash my hair after that I use my three essential serums to deal with my frizzy hair.



When I'm painting my nails I always make sure that I won't do anything with water because water would ruin your job and it would be really sad :( So then I paint my nails and it's almost done.


The last thing must to be done is the face moistening. And after you moisten your face your pamper evening is done. Pamper yourself this evening it's really relaxing and after all you'll feel amazing! 
Hope you'll like this little post. Feel free to share with me what you do on your pamper evening.

What's In My Bag | Tag


This is my bag. I love it!


Many of beauty bloggers were doing this tag so I thought that it would be fun to do it aswell. I hope you will like it!

1. Agenda - I think that I can't be productive without making notes of everything.

2. Lipstick - it's always in my bag because it's handy when you need to fix your lips.

3. Pen - It's always there when I need to write something.

4. Lipgloss - for the gorgeous glossy lips.

5. Phone - I don't leave my home without it.

6. Keys - I don't leave my home without them aswell.

7. Hand cream - hand moistening is very important, especially in winter.

8. Mirror - I'm a really messy person and I always ruin my makeup with my hands by rubbing my eyes so the mirror is my rescuer.

9. Hand sanitizer gel - it's a bag essential because you need to sanitize your hands before you eat or something. I don't want germs to get in my food and also it smells really good so I like to use it just for the good smell.

10. Parfume - who doesn't want to smell good all day?

11. Lip balm - my lips need extra care in winter.

12. Purse - the most important thing when you are out.

Would You Rather | Makeup Edition



Not long ago I found an amazing blog called Blushing Beauty and I had a great opportunity to do a collab with its gorgeous owner Leah. She is a 16 years old girl who is interested in makeup, fashion, hair and all things beauty related. We emailed each other for a while and decided to join our forces and do a collective blog post. So here are the questions which she have answered:


1.) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lip glosses or lose all of your palettes and eye-shadows?
I would rather lose my palettes and eye-shadows because I just cant live with out eyeliner and lipstick.

2.) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
I would rather never cut it again because I look weird with short hair.

3.) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
Pink because its natural and cute.

4.) If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
Make up because you can never have enough :)

5.) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
Lipstick as eyeliner.

6.) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
MAC but only because I have never shopped in Sephora and don't know what their products are like.

7.) Would you rather only use one eye-shadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?
One lip colour because with eye-shadow I always use 2 or more colours.

8.) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
Summer clothes in winter, I prefer to be too cold than too hot.

9.) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
Dark because I love dark nail polish!

10.) Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?
My favourite lip product.

11.) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
A ponytail.

12.) Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lip gloss?
Never use lip gloss, because you always have lipstick :)

13.) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?
 Have none at all.

14.) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
Nail polish. People don't look at your nails they look at your face.

15.) Would you rather have make up or clothes for Christmas?
Make up. You can always have clothes for your birthday :)

16.) Would you rather have a HUGE make up collection or a car?
A HUGE make up collection because I would use it more than a care and I wouldn't have to pay insurance!

17.) Would you rather have your own make up or perfume line?
Make up line. I'm more of a make up girl than a perfume girl.

18.) Would you rather wear foundation too light or too dark?
Too light.

19.) Would you rather buy 1 MAC brush for £30 or 6 Zoeva brushes for £30?
Probably 1 MAC brush for £30 just because they are such good quality.

20.) Would you rather live without make up or chocolate?
Chocolate.

I ♥ Drugstore








Recently I and my mom went shopping. We weren't planning to buy anything, but clothes, but when we saw all the beauty of the drugstore it all ended up with these purchases. I'm amazed how the prices is so low. I love shopping in the drugstore!

So firstly I got essence eyeshadow. It's a very nice bronze shimmery color. I wasn't expected that the color will be like that. I was just looking for a brown color, but I am extremely surprised how this eyeshadow glistens. I love it and highly recommend it for you!

I got The Benefit They're Real mascara not from the drug store. My friend was selling it and I thought that I want to try because I have heard  many beauty gurus were talking about it. So I bought it and I'm very happy with my purchase. My lashes are naturaly short and thin, but this mascara makes them a lot more thicker and longer. So I'm pleased with that mascara very much.

Also I got Lumene mascara, but I wasn't that satisfaded with this as I was with Benefit. The brush seems to be ruined, but it isn't. It's very uncomfortable to put on the mascara to my lashes with brush like this. However there are some kind of little hairs in the mixture so they stick to my lashes and in that way make them longer and thicker. It's not very great because of the brush, but for those who don't mind, this mascara will be perfect.

The last thing I got is Lumene moisturizer. This thing is my favourite moisturizer of all I have ever tried. I use just a small, pea-sized amount of moisturizer to moisten all my face and it can deal even with my problematic skin. It has an arctic plantain and a salicylic acid in it which are great fighters with acne. The package says that in this moisturized was used 90% natural ingrediens so that thing makes me feel even more better!

So that's it for this time. I hope I helped someone with this short review. Have a beautiful day!

The Christmas Tag


Hello everybody!
Since the middle of November I started to listen Christmas songs and decorate my room all christmassy. Everyday I listen for new Michael Buble christmas album with the cup of tea in my hands. I'm really waiting for Christmas. It's the best time of the year!
It's been a long time since I write a blog post so today is the day when I just thought why not do a Christmas tag for you guys. 

1. What is your favourite Christmas song?

Definitely it's White Christmas ( Michael BublĂ© ). I hear this song everywhere now and I sing along. Love this song!

2. Which is your favourite Christmas drink?

I would say it's hot chocolate or cinnamon tea.

3. What is your favourite Christmas film?

Home Alone for sure. Even the trailer of the film makes me feel so happy. This film is the best of all time!

4. What is at the top of your Christmas wish-list this year?

I haven't thought about the presents yet, but recently I found a Jessica Simpson parfume "Fancy" and I think that it will be at the top of my wishlist because the smell of the parfume is just amazing. I'm really bad in describing smell so I think that it's ok that I won't do that. haha. Also I want a bathrobe, but I can't get it to myself so I think it would be a great present for me.

 5. What is your favourite festive makeup or nail art look?

For the eyes I usually use a glittery eyeshadow because I think it is supposed to be festive attribute. For the lips I like to stay more natural and I choose from beige colors. And of course red nails with a golden glitter is my favourite nail art look.

6. What is your favourite outfit at Christmas time? (LBD? Christmas Jumpers? PJ's?)

I'm obsessed with Christmas jumpers. I wear them everywere because they are so cozy and warm. I just love them a lot!

7. Would you rather play out in the snow or enjoy it from inside with the fire and a cuppa?

Can I choose the both selections? It's extremely fun to play in the snow or to build a snowman, but I just can't refuse the warm sitting by the fireplace either.

8. Wrapping presents - love or loathe?

I can say that I hate wrapping presents because I'm really lame in that activity. But I'm trying my best to wrap all the presents nicely. 

9. What's your favourite Christmassy food?

The Christmas dinner of course. Also I have an obsession with tangerines because in winter the shops are owercrowded with the boxes of tangerines and I just can't help myself not to buy a few. It will always remind me of Christmas.

10. What is your favourite thing about Christmas?

I think that a lot of people love Christmas for the time when all family is together and can enjoy themselves. As I have said Christmas is the best time of the year!

So those are my answer. I tag everyone to do this!
