monochrome makeup look

The hotter the weather, the less “paint” on my face. Luckily, it takes minimal use of makeup to still attain a presentable, chic look. Spring & summertime bring colorful sunsets and fresh breeze, which undoubtedly paint a pretty inspirational canvas in my mind. Warm, but soft tones are what I’ve been playing with the past […]

My Picks of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

#Nsale   The Nordstrom’s Annual Anniversary Sale started today! With thousands of items on sale, it can seem overwhelming to navigate…where do you start? I got a jump start early this morning over a strong coffee (or two…) and sorted through essentials, staples, fashion forward finds, classics and can’t miss deals! I’ve always relied on Nordstrom’s […]

The Mask

I’m not the person to come to ask questions about beauty, to be honest. I know nothing about make-up other than how to do cat eye with a liquid eyeliner and my skincare “basket” just consists of one water-based moisturizer, one basic eye cream (which frankly I always forget to apply), one cleansing mask from Neutrogena that I bought 2 years ago and my dermatologist advised acne balm. Now I have no intention to put on more make up, like ever, but I started to seriously freak out about my skin care lately. I’m almost 30 and as I’m seeing everyone taking crazy good care of their faces I realized that if I don’t do it now, it’s going to be too late. I started with these Sephora eye masks and unbelievably they work miracles, which has restored my faith in cosmetics. Lucky for me, this awakening happened at the same time world is going nuts over face masks so I spent hours online tracking down the best face masks out there for every need …

5 Steps For a No-makeup Look For the Most Difficult Skin

5 Steps for a No-Makeup Look for the Most Difficult Skin Wearing: All makeup by IT Cosmetics from Sephora With indie makeup brand success, IT Cosmetics, arriving at Sephora, I’ve had the opportunity to try a range of the brand’s makeup and (or really ‘slash’) skincare products. I’ve been a big fan of IT Cosmetics My Sculpted Face contouring palette, so I was excited to see whether the other products lived up to the hype. What really captivated me about IT Cosmetics is this idea of ‘Problem-solving’ makeup. This is a somewhat avant-garde idea that makeup should help treat your skin problems and enhance your natural and unique look, rather than hide them. I know some of you might roll your eyes at this point, as I am sure your list of skin concerns, which demand the most heavy duty makeup to cover, is at least as long as mine. Even so, I have long believed that good makeup should look like you’ve not worn any at all. So while sharing my 5 steps for a no-makeup look, I also want to highlight the skin problems that I struggle with how I deal with these. 1Prepare your skin Among the […]

Custom Blends

Custommade Fragrances There was a time when every fashion brand had a fragrance, they were often sweet, sickly and overly synthetic.

I substituted my green eyeshadow lovin’ with an equally fun alternative.

all things winter skincare

When it comes to skincare, you could say that I’m pretty obsessed. It’s important to start while young. Understanding what your skin needs is a must as well. For instance, I have combination skin (a mixture of oily and dry areas), but it gets on the drier side during winter time. Lately I’ve been making an effort to convert to more natural brands as well as experimenting with the latest beauty trend, Korean skincare. For this post, I wanted to break down my winter skincare routine and share some of my current favorite products. The Basics: Aesop Toner – This is toner that caters to more sensitive skin. My first time using Aesop products, I’m a fan, although I’m also a big fan of this toner. Vitamin C serum – Vitamin C is a must for my daily routine. I like to use it before applying any serums or moisturizers on my face and neck. Not only it has so many anti-aging benefits, it’s very helpful to use it along with SPF. Avéne moisturizer – My go to day time moisturizer. It’s light, absorbs really fast and hydrating. Bonus points for smelling amazing. Shisedo UV protector* – Can’t stress enough how important SPF is for your […]

BEAUTY / ONE MILLION

It’s golden! One of my favourite perfumes of this moment: Pacco Rabanne’s Lady Million. A golden bottle in the shape of a diamond. What’s not to like? Somehow I always choose this scent in the night time. Whether it’s because I’m going out to dinner with the boyfriend or hitting the town with my girls. It’s just the perfect finishing touch after getting all dressed up and doing your ‘going out’ make up. Or is that just me? Having a fragrance for every occassion or part of the day?

top fall lipstick colors

Bright coral lipsticks and creamy nudes aren’t exactly considered your fall lipstick colors, but I have to disagree with that notion. Risking sounding like an emo teenager – I rarely label things. Just like I don’t have “winter” and “summer” handbags (hi mom), I don’t have winter and summer lipstick colors either. I’ll wear deep […]
