Dark nails

Dark-nails-girl

Learn new tricks. Get inspired. Be beautiful !

I hope that you like this come-back as much as I do! I always loved dark nails. Black, dark brown or mysterious purple, you name your favorite, but all these dark nail polish colors gave me the feeling of a mysterious and strong women. They look great on short nails but if you choose some art nail design (with the condition that you won’t color all your nail) you can wear you nails a little bit longer.

The colors

Darker shades – purple, indigo, plum, red-black – are sober and sexy at the same time. Plus, they complement perfectly outfits in neutral colors (gray, beige, brown) so fashionable this fall.

Shape

There is no problem if you want to wear your nails a little bit longer and rounded at the top, but darker nail polishes look better on very short nails, naturally rounded at the top.

Resistance

Only specialists have such a precision to manage not to stain the cuticles when they apply the nail polish. So we would better use first a base coat, then the nail polish, and in the end a top coat that will make the nail polish resist better and have a nice shine.

Here are my nail polishes suggestions for this fall. Karen from MakeupAndBeautyBlog and Michelle from  AllLacqueredUp already reviewed some of them, so you are only a click away from seeing these beautiful swatches.

Review-Lancome La Base Pro (make up primer)

I wish that I could have (at least one time) a perfect makeup like our celebrities.  Do I have a chance?

This question was in my mind for a long time. I watched TV commercials, read magazines, see movies and I wanted to have that perfect doll face, without crazy pimples ( they appear when I least expected and from nowhere), red spots or any other unexpected surprises on my  face, when I woke up in the morning.  Finally, after I did a little research I found at my favorite beauty brand Lancome the product that was going to “give me a new face”.

Like I told you ladies before, I don’t use foundation everyday and I try to keep on my face as less makeup as possible, but this doesn’t mean that I shouldn’t have a perfect makeup in those few days when I need to look perfect. Occasions like weddings, gathering with old friends, jobs interviews  or some fancy dinners, all these ask for a  perfect makeup. My help was inspired by make-up artists techniques who revealed their secrets for a perfect complexion!

Lancome-LaBase-Pro

The secret of a perfect complexion makeup lies in preparing the skin before applying any other makeup product. Here you can count on Lancome La Base Pro, a translucent make-up base. You must use it after you cleaned your skin and before applying your foundation. It was enough to apply only a thin layer to feel my skin incredibly soft and non greasy. Pores are enlarged, fine lines fade, signs of tiredness are diminished and all other skin imperfections are visibly reduced. This translucent make-up base with smoothing effect will boost make-up wear. Continue Reading

Chic-bag Today we are ending the first autumn week. In my city it’s already raining and still don’t want to think that autumn is here. I will miss those sunny summer days, but let’s not forget that autumn also has its advantages. We can finally buy products from all those Fall 2009 collections that we’ve been talking about all summer long and we can finally see new episodes from our favorite serial movies are starting.

To get into the autumn spirit here are some articles that will put a smile on your face and show you that fall has also its good surprises.

Beauty Show – Fall 2009 – Hot Lips (part 2)

Sienna_Miller_hot_lips

Contrasts are the law when it comes to color lips this season: you can opt for electric colors, but even  for some very dark ones. Common denominator is boldly. As for me, I think I will stick to those electric colors, cause being so white skin dark colors won’t do anything else, then make me look very pale or even Emo style.

Chanel-Allure-Luminous-SatinLip

Tip: If you want purple or electric pink lips, the eyes makeup should be reduced to minimum – neutral eyeshadow and mascara -, otherwise you will get more a funny look then a trendy one. For evening, when you want a retro-glam look, you can accentuate your eyes and lips, with the condition that you’ll stick in the same color range. Continue Reading

Review – Estee Lauder Gilded Rose Marbleized Shimmer Powder(limited edition)

I have recently discover the new way to glow. I went shopping the other day and after buying something totally funny (I  hope to make a post about it soon) I took a peak into the Sensuous Gold Fall Color 2009 collection from Estee Lauder . I’ve discover the Gilded Rose Marbleized Shimmer Powder which is kind of in the expensive side for me ( 36$ ) but I still decided to buy it.

I simply could not resist not buying it, since I first saw it’s chic colored case. It’s a light peachy-pink case, and you know how I love pink, and with the Estee Lauder symbol on it becomes very chic and feminine. When you open the case you’ll find the applicator along with the powder which is a rainbow of light peachy, pink, bronze and gold shimmery colors. All these colors combined together create   luminous bronze- golddess glow but in the same time will give you a natural look.
