MY TOP 4 FOUNDATIONS

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

I’m very excited about sharing with you my favourite foundations, because I came a long way of trying so many of them to finally still coming back to those 4 particular products. I’m sure some of you still struggle to find your fave and I hope this post maybe will help you with finding the one!

My skin and I came a very long way of struggling through full of acne, red, oily teenage face and very dry complexion to mixed and sensitive. Throughout that journey I had my favorites for every condition my skin was in. Now I found the perfect 4 for the skin I have today and I’d like to share them with you!

I find those products are perfect for my skin today. My skin is usually quite dry and I need to take a very good care about moisturising it all the time. It’s also quite sensitive and gets oily in my T zone (specially nose area) throughout the day. The oiliness it’s not my biggest problem which can be easily eliminated by using a tiny bit of powder, by special oil absorbing tissues or for bigger events setting spray. Since I have few ways to win the oiliness my priority in picking good foundation is to make sure it won’t dry out my skin. I hate foundations that exaggerate my dried little skins even after moisturising the area. I cant’ stand when the make up looks cakey on my skin either so I usually go for light/medium coverage and then just treat my dark circles and some stronger discolourations or pimples with concealer. Although probably you still can see some of my imperfections, with this kind of coverage I feel more fresh, more confident and more natural.

MAC Studio Face and Body Foundation Nowadays, definitely my number one! I was quite sceptic while buying this foundation, because of its very light coverage. What I’ve learnt, after watching few YouTube tutorials on applying it, the secret is in warming it up in your hands before applying it. This way it has more coverage and sticks better to the skin. It’s very buildable without the mask effect. It’s just everything I wished for! It looks like my skin but way better! I don’t need to use much concealer after applying it and it definitely doesn’t leave my skin dry but gives it a gorgeous satin glow! I highly recommend to anyone with a similar skin type to mine and who likes super natural, light to medium coverage with no makeup effect! It looks bomb!

Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 25 is everything if you’re looking for this perfect photoshopped look with a satin/matte finish. Daily I use it as concealer (after my MAC foundation) and a little goes a long way! Used as foundation it never let me down on the days when I want to look flawless without heavy coverage. It’s also buildable and blends very well. Smells heavenly and it feels like a touch of luxury to your face.

Reviews of the next two foundations you saw in my previous posts that’s why I’m not gonna repeat myself and just link their reviews down here:

BB CreamBB Original Extra Light (buy here)

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream (buy here)

 

Is one of them your fave too? Let me know your top 4 (or 3,2,1, 100) in the comments below! I’m very curious to try different foundations as well!

FALL FASHION: 3 AUTUMNAL OUTFIT IDEAS

Hello Loves and happy Wednesday!

Today I have something very special for you! I decided to take part in AUrate’s Fall Fashion Challenge and bring you 3 different fall outfit inspirations! Each one I paired with few propositions of AUrate’s gorgeous earrings that in my opinion will perfectly compliment the outfits!

Few words about AUrate brand: I went to their website and looked through all the jewelry and I just fell in love with every piece! I would describe their style as a mix of minimalistic, classy, but modern and statement. Also all of their jewelry is handmade in New York City from ethically sourced materials and they give back to economically disadvantaged school children with each purchase (read more here).
disclaimer: I’m not sponsored neither paid to do or say anything about AUrate brand. I just felt like it’s very creative and inspirational project I would like to take part in. 

Without further ado let’s get to the outfits!

August Favorites!

Hello Loves! Hope you’re having great Monday!

It’s almost the end of the month and Summer and I just can’t believe it! It’s makes me so sad! Summer is my favorite season and it always happens so fast! But the good news is with the end of this month also comes new post of my month’s favorites to share with you! Let’s take advantage of those last warm days and now go straight to the post!

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

The first fave item are those Topshop mom jeans I wore the hell out off since I got them! I was looking for a good mom fit a long time, but nothing I tried was a good fit. They were cut off in a wrong places, flattened my butt, looked weird in front or simply they were too buggy for my petite silhouette. These Topshop ones were on a big sale so I decided to risk it and order them online still being little skeptic how they will fit. But guys! They do and they are such a great fit! Love them so much! (with heels they look killer!)

Second favorite is my old fave Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. Probably most of you, who are a little bit into makeup, heard about this mascara! So what more can I say? It’s the best one yet I’ve tried, very affordable and easily buildable without the unnatural effect (I’m not a fan of spider lushes). My always very safe go to product.

Third fave is my new Hoola Matte Bronzer by Benefit Cosmetics. I recently purchased it in Sephora. Finally! In a previous month’s favorites I’m gushing over Bronze Goddess by Esteé Lauder with never trying Hoola. Well, I did try it and it’s amazing! I have to say it’s not surprising to me anymore that so many people love this product! It’s so pigmented and flattering most of the skintones! It’s just gorgeous! I’m in love! ❤FullSizeRender

And last but not least is my fave fragrance atm! I’m just obsessed! If you want to find out why, just click HERE for a separate post I made about this baby!

 

What are your month’s favorites? Let me know!

Summer in Bulgaria: Fashion Haul! 

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

Sorry for skipping two weeks, but I didn’t have enough of time before I left for my holidays to schedule blog posts. But I’m back! Happy, rested and tanned! Me and my boyfriend went for a week to Bulgaria to sunny beach. It was amazing! If you’d like me to make another post on our trip leave a comment below, tweet me or leave a comment on my instagram.

This week I’d like to share with you all my newest clothing purchases I made for my trip. I honestly can say that all of those pieces are so comfortable and affordable too!

FullSizeRender 4

Let’s start form the essentials for a beach vacation: swimming suits! This cute bikini is from H&M and it’s comfortable and something really feminine that I loved to wear it at the beach or by the pool. Bra also have removable straps. I din’t use them, so I also didn’t include them on a photo.

Second, black one-piece is from Zara. I never thought I’d find there actual swimsuit. I saw it by accident and it was exact design I was looking for earlier. It feels incredibly comfortable and very sexy on. Dries very fast! Can we also talk about this adorable ruffle?!

IMG_4685FullSizeRender 2

I also was looking for a nice cover up just to throw on while going from pool to get a drink and not feel too exposed wearing only a bikini. I found this one and fell in love! It’s from asos and the colour is just amazing! I feel like a sexy goddess wearing it! Its super light material is flowing on the wind. What else do you need right?

IMG_4660

This bra from H&M is surprisingly well cut and it looks bomb on! It’s super trendy right now because of its stripes going opposite ways on the upper boob part and I think I need to get the same one in black too! I wear it all the time!

IMG_4669

I couldn’t help myself and not purchase this top. I thought I would wear it once or twice, beacuse it’s so sheer it’s hard to find a right occasion (beside a hot summer night) to wear it on its own. I wore it without any bra and actually nobody could see anything. It’s really flirty and cute with a great coverage as well. Not only for super small boobs! I am 34C or 70D if anybody wonders. Depends on the store and model. So I would say I’m medium small and it worked for me.

These high waisted culottes, also from H&M (not available anymore, but similar here), are perfect to pair with some black tiny top and some heels. They’re quite out there but such a versatile and still neutral statement piece!

Let’s go to accesories. I got this corset form Zara (not available in black, but the same one in white is here) and love to wear it to add some edge to my simple outfits. It looks really cool to use as a belt with super oversized shirt (could be your boyfriend’s :P) that you’ll make to a dress and maybe pair it with some slip ons!

I also went for some shoe hunting and got these super comfortable sliders, mules and flat sandals! Black ones are form H&M, red mules from Zara (not available anymore, but similar here) and leopard printed sandals are from Topshop.

Sephora Face Masks review

Hi Loves and happy Monday!

For today’s post I prepared a review of two Sephora Masks. One is a full face rose mask and second one is just a charcoal nose strip.

On Saturday I decided to pumper myself and use the full face rose mask ($6). It is supposed to brighten and moisturize your skin. I kept it on, as it said on the packaging, for 15 mins and have to say the whole process was really relaxing and felt very luxurious (I’m not used to do masks often as you can tell). After those 15 minutes I took it off and instantly felt refreshed. I massaged any leftovers of the mask into my skin. Honestly, I could feel that mask helped me with moisturizing my face more than I could see it. So visually I didn’t see much difference. Although my skin felt great! Did it brighten my complexion? I don’t think so. If so, then very slightly.

The nose strip I used on my boyfriend because he was asking me if I have this super famous black peel off mask, which I didn’t. I offered him this Sephora one and he was quite pleased with the result. Before using it don’t forget to read the instructions! I didn’t pay attention that nose, beside being clean, should also be damp. But after all, with a little help of wet towel, it got stuck to my love’s nose and worked as promised. Results were ok, without revelation. I think you could find something better for that price ($3).

Will I use this again? The nose strip – I don’t think that I’ll bother with it. The rose face mask – Maybe yes, before important event or just to pamper and spoil myself a little bit!

Did you use some of Sephora masks? Which ones? Did you like them or not? Share below! I’d love to hear about your masks experiences!

P.S. Keep your eyes peeled on the next post! It will be my June favourites!
