Purple eyes and rosy lips


 A few days ago I decided to play around with a little bit more makeup on my face than usual. Purple eyeshadow and taupe eyeliner were the colors I mainly used.

Soft and casual pink makeup


 I feel like (especially lately) I have been using pink on my make up a lot. However I love it a lot and the way it looks on me. I did this make up around the time I first got the cien nude kiss lip gloss and I was really excited about it so the look revolved around it.

Halloween cracked doll makeup



I thought I'd do something different this time for Halloween and I have seen some pretty awesome make up of dolls lately so I thought I'd try my own version. What did I learn? I need a lot of practice on theatrical makeup especially in 3d marks and scars.

Top 5 transitional items for colder weather



I love Corfu. But there is something that always bugs me around this time of the year that has to do with the weather of the island. The heat is incredible! And I know that most of you would say that

Face of the day: Pink and smokey


A few days ago I was going over my makeup stash and was trying to find new ways to use my make up. I have mentioned the "Knock on wood" wet and wild eyeshadow trio that I have for quite some time now and as soon as I layed eyes on it I thought I had never used it exactly as the letters of the palete indicate. So for this make up I thought I'd do a pink/aubergine/brown smokey look and keep everything else bare.

Face of the day: animation festival



I’m still wearing this makeup while writing this post, which is quite unusual for me since I tend to pre-plan and write my post at least a week before they come out. However a recent illness and some more interesting activities have prevented me from writing earlier.

Contouring: What I was doing wrong



The picture kind of talks for itself. You can guess by the amount of the bronzers that I haven't tried that many but I have the sun club one for more than I should. You can tell therefore that I have experimented with bronzer for quite some time without great success until recently. So I'm here to tell you that I've finally made it! I think the last few times I applied it, it finally looked as good as it should. Pondering over my past mistakes I thought I'd share them with you along with some potential advice.

10 steps korean skincare routine




I've really been into korean skincare recently. I was introduced to the certain skincare (let's call it) method by the Wengie and since korean people seem to all have so great skin I thought I'd give their methods a try. I then continued to find the amazing wish trend channel on youtube and most of the methods I'm describing here are from their channel.So in this post I'm going to present to you the theory and the steps as well as some tips that I've tried and loved. Keep in mind that trying this method I changed some of the products with the originals as well as the order for best results for me. So you could say this is a slightly modified version.

Light, fresh autumn makeup



Along with the massive majority of the people that are into make up and fashion, I am really excited for autumn and the colder weather. Not only is it the best excuse to have another cup of tea and hot chocolate but it always feels like a fresh start. So I have been watching a few autumn makeup tutorials and my usual complain came to the surface once more; these looks are amazing but I couldn't wear them on an everyday basis. So I thought I'd create a much more wearable autumn look that you could spice up easy with some dark lips but you could also wear to school or any other kind of place you don't want to wear a lot of makeup to.

BB creams : Garnier VS maybelline

I have been using two bb creams lately and have noticed some pros and cons as well as differences for both of them!

These two were also the most easily accessible were I live but I've noticed that they are also accessible worldwide.

Here are some pictures and swatches.
