MAC STROBE CREAM REVIEW

Hello everyone!

       Today a quick product review . I haven't used this product for a long time, and I needed a good face cream that would instantly help my skin, when I'm very tired. I remembered what wonders the strobe cream did for me when I was using it. So, a few days ago I repurchased it an I had to do this review for those of you that haven't tried it.
        On the site they say: The ultimate quick fix for the skin. Super-powered with potent botanicals; de-snoozes, de-stresses, moistens, freshens and boosts the look of dull, flat or tired-looking skin with a fully loaded vitamin zap and a mega dose of green tea. Brightens and clarifies with iridescent particles and antioxidants. Enhances the effects of light on all skin and in all lighting conditions from sunlight to spotlight.
        And I definitely agree with them. I read the ingredients and this cream is full of antioxidants, and as you know antioxidants are good for your skin. And the word Good is an understatement for this product. At least for me it works wonders, and I have talked to other people that use this cream and they are very satisfied too. You can use this cream as a primer before you use your foundation, you will get a more dewy look .
        What I don't like about it is the packaging. The tube that it comes in is made out for hard plastic and it's hard to squeeze from it. That is the only down side that this product has, other than that is perfect like I said.

Disclaimer: I am not paid to do a review on this product.
I bought this product with my own money and I am not affiliated in any way.

TAKING CARE OF SPLIT ENDS

       Split ends was the topic that a follower Nora asked me to talk about, and of course I always answer your requests. Did you know that 50 % of women have problems with split ends. There are many things that can cause split ends, and in this post I am going to tell you what they are and how to prevent them.

1.First lets start with the main and most important thing and that is HEAT- Overheating your hair and not protecting it properly can cause the hair to break. Try using the least heat possible, and if you do use it use a heat protector spray. There are a lot of heat protectors out there you just have to find one that suits you. Another thing that you can do is never use the highest setting on your blow dryer, curling iron e.t.c.

2.Comb / Brush-  Never comb your hair wet - that can cause a lot of fuzziness and can break your hair. While brushing your hair start from the bottom and work your way up, so you're not puling your hair hard  to detangle it .

3.Mask/Conditioner - Using a good mask and conditioner can help a lot with hair health. Nutrition is the key to healthy hair.  I'm not saying that you have to buy an expensive product , just the right one for your hair type. I find that leave in conditioners work better than the regular ones.  You can also use olive oil or almond oil to condition hair

4. Trim- If you do have split ends you have to trim them cause there's nothing more unappealing than frizzy hair with split ends that you can not even put your fingers in it.  And if you really want to grow out your hair and trimming is not an option for you, than use my technique for prolonging the trimming .

 
        Split your hair in two parts. Put one part out of the way , and work first with the other.  
                                  Take small pieces of hair and twist them like this:
                      You're going to see the split ends sticking through . And don't forget the end of the pieces 
              And then continue the procedure with the rest of the hair . When you're done you'll notice that brushing your hair is much easier, and your hair is much smoother and healthy looking .

My hair was trimmed a few days ago

I hope this was helpful  
Thank you

BLACK OUTFIT MAKE UP

Hello everyone!

Every time I wear a black dress I'm trying to accessorize it  with a different color. My make up can be anything but black, I really don't like when people wear black outfit , black make up, black shoes, black nail polish , black everything. So in this post I just wanted to show you how a simple one color eye shadow can make a difference and you can look amazing within seconds. You can do this make up look in 5 minutes. I'm using the MANHATTAN eyeliner 87z instead of an eye shadow,highlighting the tear dot  and just a black liner. I'm wearing false lashes, but that is optional. And at the end of the post a fun way to do your nails. 




Aura nail polish and this little things have no name
Hope you'll try it next time you're wearing black .
Thank you

STARTER KIT/ DIVA ON BUDGET

 Hello everyone!
 
These past days were hectic a close person to me got very sick and I couldn't make a post, so I apologize. So today I finally got few minutes to check my mail and write a post for you. 
I know that there are a lot of girls out there that read these beauty blogs or watch YouTube gurus and  love make up, but they are unable to buy any. Maybe your family has economical problems, maybe you are saving up for a house, or maybe you just live in a country like mine where average monthly salary is 250dolars .  But don't get desperate, you should know that no one needs that much make up unless they are a make up artist. An average person needs just 5 things to always look glamorous and in this post I'll tell you what they are.
 
1. First and most important thing is foundation , you don't need a concealer, and powder , and eye primer, and mineral powder, and face primer...you only need foundation. Foundations can be very expensive, but there are a lot of drugstore foundations that can cost little but do you a lot. 
-Foundation can be used like an eye primer-just use a bit of it with your fingers and that's it. 
-Put two layers of foundation on the parts where you would use concealer.
-If you don't have oily skin you won't need setting powder, and if you do have oily skin blot your face with kitchen paper, or whatever paper you have. So your face is good with only foundation.
My choice of drugstore foundation:
2. Mascara is a must have and I really prefer drugstore mascaras instead of  high end once. Mascaras dry quickly and you don't want to spend a fortune on mascara that you'll throw away in a few months. My choice of drugstore mascaras is :
 
3. Eyeshadow is the most difficult thing to pick out , there are so many colors, brands , palettes . So the best thing to do if you are on a  budget is to buy two eye shadows,  one light (champagne) and the other one dark (brown) - it is best to take the dark color the same as your eyebrow color. So you can use it as an eyeshadow and eyebrow powder. And if you have a bit more money you can find some amazing palettes on E-bay with a lot of colors that you can use like lip colors too. My choice is:

 
4. Blush is something that you  have to use. You don't want to look pale with only foundation on. The easiest way is to use eyeshadow or lipstick. And if you want to own a blush find a color that is warm and you can use everyday. My choice is:

5. Lipstick/Lip gloss. If you are a person that likes lipstick then you need to buy a lipstick that is not a very bold color, because you'll want to use it everyday. Same applies for lip gloss - don't buy lip gloss in color, use a clear lip gloss and if you have an eyeshadow palette then dab the color that you like on your clear gloss and you'll have a different colored gloss everyday.


 

Hope you'll find this useful
Thank you

SNOWY DAYS

Hello everyone!
     I received an e-mail, saying that I should show you how do I look on everyday basis . So the past weekend I went to visit my parents, and as you can imagine I had a great time there and to fulfill your wishes I took some pics of my make up right before I left the house, and when we stopped to have lunch I snapped a shot of my outfit. 


As you can see I don't wear false lashes every day 
 

Sorry I don't have a better picture of my dress , it's just a simple gray dress

Not that fancy , right.
I guess I'm simple like that
Hope you like this post
If you have any other requests please let me know
