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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
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.
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
I know that you are curious to find out with what colors and makeup styles you will be in the spotlight in the cold season, so I will give you all the details about the newest makeup trends. I will split this article in 3 parts and dedicate this first part to makeup for your complexion. In the next two parts I will uncover you the latest trends of hot lips and sexy eyes.
Complexion like porcelain and cheeks like only dolls have are among the celebrities looks of this season!
Tip: To see exactly where you should apply your blush, look in the mirror after you made a little effort to see where your cheeks turned naturally pink. You won’t fail, if after you shook up in your hand the brush loaded with powder or blush, you start applying from the lower part of your cheek b bones to the temples. Continue Reading
Silver is perfect as an evening makeup and emphasizes the eyes, no matter the color. If you take a peek to Giorgio’s Armani summer collection and you’ll study the radiance makeups based of metallic gray, you will see that I’m right.
Choose products for both lips and cheeks that include in their composition shiny particles. Even celebrities like Blake Lively adopted this makeup. Let’s get inspired by this natural makeup. You can use some products from my suggestions bellow or you can try your own and let me know how the look came up.

After the age of 25 the search of the innocent beauty becomes a purpose. We want to look fresh and young. I know I want it every time I look in the mirror. This thing can really become possible. We only need the courage to adopt a natural trend.
If you are used to cover your face with lots of makeup, foundation and powder, your complexion will start loosing its natural color after a long period of time. Of course you can choose solarium or creams with tan effect if you really want to.
I start using foundation and powder only 3 years ago, because I noticed that during my working hours on my complexion begun to appear some red spots. I used to work in a place where was a lot of smoke from cigarettes and cigars and this smoke was entering deep into my skin. I have to admit that I’m a non smoking person and I try to keep away from all the smoking areas as much as I can. After a period of time while I was working in that place, the effects start appearing on my face. When I got home, all the time I start a cleansing routine and OMG you don’t want to know how black and dirty were my makeup removal pads. So, I decided to start using a foundation and powder, just to protect my skin against the smoke. Now I quit working there and during the summer I don’t cover my face with anything (besides face creams with SPF, of course). Sometimes during the cold season I like to use Vichy Flexitent, but not everyday.
Lancome’s Mascaras have the best mascara formula I’ve ever used. Along the years I’ve tried lots of Mascaras Brands, from Max Factor and L’Oreal to Maybelline and Rimmel. Some of them were great at first, like Max Factor Masterpiece ( It was love at first sight with this baby ), but after a while – and I’m not talking months – the effect was not the same and it really ended very fast. Some of my friends were using it too and we all realized that after 3 weeks we need a new one. I like the texture of a new mascara, and I know is natural that after a few weeks of using will not have the same effect like in the beginning, but with Masterpiece all was happening very fast. Every 3 weeks I had to buy a new one, so I start searching for a new brand of mascara in the same price range.
Soon after this I took a trip by plane and I had the chance to scoop into the tax free shops. Here I found LancomeHypnose and Definicils wrapped together at a very good price. I knew Hypnose was launched in 2004 and quickly became the best world selling mascara, so tempted by the 2 in 1 price offer and reviews I’ve decided to give it a try. Continue Reading
Lips that shines very discreet, attract attention without loading your look to much. You must know that particles that reflects the light make the defects even more visible, so lip’s exfoliating it’s a must. You can use a towel soaked in hot water, then apply a lip balm and a gloss with shining particles. My favorite is Lancome Juicy Tubes Pure ( 18$ ). It’s a natural, high -shine 15ml lip gloss that contains a mixture of Shea butter and naturally derived oils. Lancome Juicy Tubes Pure will condition your lips providing a rich color. It’s only available in Sephora and some of the shades are in limited edition. I love the Lavender Zen shade but next I want to try the Wild Berry ( dark berry color). You can also order online from their shop and check-out the new colors.
I’m usually a fan of lipglosses but what I love most about this one is that it leaves my lips super glossy and fragranced without being sticky. Lot’s of ladies tried Lancome Juicy Tubes and they quickly become a fan of this product raking it with 4,7 stars from 5.
