Beauty Trend: Ombré Lips Tutorial

Image
Ombré lips are so fun and chic! Do you know what they are?
They are very similar to the gradient lips and there are different ways to recreat this kind of look.
It's usually outlined by a darker shade of lipstick or lip pencil.
Many models have worn ombre lips and it's a trend that will never disappear.
First of all the key is definition. The technique used aims to make lips appear fuller and tridimensional.
You can experiment with different colors and just have fun!

I'll show you how they look like:







These ones are perfect for festivals and concerts.



While these ones are more wearable and are perfect for everyday. You will get noticed by everyone ;D!

How To Have A Perfect Skin!

Image
Achieving a perfect skin is difficult. But it's not impossible. Here are some tips that you have to follow absolutely if you really want to have a good-looking skin!

1 - DRINK LOTS OF WATER!



I know that everyone says always the same thing and you may have already heard this a million of times before, but drinking a lot of water actually works. It helps you stay hydrated and it pushes out the toxins that are found in your body. Make sure you drink at least 8 glasses of water a day!! If you find water too "boring" add some lemon juice or mint, if you wish.

2 - EAT FRUITS AND VEGETABLES



A healthy diet is everything. You are what you eat, that's why junk and fried food are forbidden. Eat apples, strawberries, fresh salads, etc. Also, avoid snacks and sweet treats!

3 - EXFOLIATE AND MOISTURIZE



Exfoliate your skin using a good scrub at least once a week, in order to get rid of all those dead cells. Also, it's important to moisturize your skin every morning and every nigh…

My Wishlist ♡!

Hi everyone!
Today I'm gonna share with you some beauty products that I would really like to try!

1 - BENEFIT POREFESSIONAL PRIMER


This primer is said to be amazing because it blurs out the pores and it makes your face look more even and it also leaves your skin oil - free. I think that it may be a really good base for the foundation, and since I have oily skin I hope that one day I will be able to try it out and to see how wonderfully it works!

2 - BENEFIT CORALISTA BLUSH


Yep, another product from the same brand. And - OMG! - I love the packaging! It's so cute and chic! I don't know you, but most of the time it's a good packaging that attracts me, rather than the product itself. Anyway, the colour of this blush is a peachy pink that suits every skin tone and I like the brush that comes with the product too.

3 -TOO FACED SHADOW INSURANCE EYE PRIMER


Ever heard of this eye primer? I am sure you have. Many beauty gurus consider it as a good eye primer that makes eye make up…

The Secrets Of Baking Soda

Image
Baking soda can be easily found in our kitchen and it can be used in a lot of different ways. First of all we can use it on our face since it is great for pimples thanks to its antibacterial properties. Then it can also be used to clean salad, fruit and so on :D! Now I'm gonna show you some DIY recipes for your skincare and for your home ;).

1 - INCREDIBLE FACIAL SCRUB
This scrub will help you to eliminate all your imperfections ( warning: it can be a little aggressive so don't use it too often!):
- 1 tablespoon of baking soda
- 1 tablespoon of water
Stir the two ingredients together until you obtain a homogeneous paste. Apply it on your face and massage gently with circular motion. Then rinse everything off with water and afterwards remember to apply a good moisturiser!

2 - SINK CLEANER
- 1/4 cup of baking soda
- 1/2 cup of vinegar
- 2 drops of essential oil
Combine the ingredients and pour the mixture into the sink. Scrub and wipe down the surface then rinse with hot water. Nothing…

HOW TO FLIRT LIKE A BOSS ♡

Image
If you're reading this then it means that you want to learn how to flirt.
Actually there are no rules but I can give you some advices.
Here are some steps you can follow:

1 - Confidence
You wanna flirt? Then just be confident about yourself and about your qualities. You are the best. You can do it. Go.

2 - Eye contact
You can't flirt without showing your interest, right? Look at the person you are interested in for a couple of seconds (make sure not to stare, it's creepy!), then look down and slowly look at him/her again. If he/she noticed you then move on the next step.

3 - Smile!
Show him/her your best smile. If you are with some friends then laugh and look at him/her sneakily. He/she may notice your beautiful smile with pleasure.

4 - Be who you are.
Approach him/her and start a simple conversation. It's easy. Don't be shy and remember to be confident. Don't lie about yourself and your interests. Don't say that you love football just because he/she loves it. …

Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick Review ♥

Image
Hi everyone! I am here again to talk to you about one of my favorite lipsticks (and from one of my fave make up brands). It’s the Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick ! It comes in a lot of different shades as you can see:


 They also have fantastic lipglosses and lipliners :D! I would really like to try them all out (clearly impossible D;).  The one that I love the most is this:


It’s the shade 360 Plum Reflection and it’s a gorgeous plum/mauve colour that once applied looks glossy and shiny. I got it just because I needed a lipstick that wasn't red, and at first I wasn't really sure about the colour, Then I tested it on my wrist and - oh my Gosh! - I was literally stunned by how fab it was. It seemed like there were a million hues in just one lip product, lighting up everything (I know, I am exaggerating). That was the moment when I thought : "This is MINE!". Also, I’m in love with the packaging! It’s kind of modern and it reflects the light.



Pro: beautiful colour, afforda…
