Holiday: Beauty Edition

A photo of myself online, yeah, I know…

My partner and I just came back from the most incredible holiday in Cyprus last week, and I thought I’d share a few photos and some of our favourite  beauty/grooming products.

Probably the most used product was Clarins Sun Care Oil Spray [Clarins is available from Selfridges,HarrodsEscentual.com,  Nordstorm,  Sephora, Bergdorf Goodman.] just like all the other Clarins for/after sun products. I was picturing the most beautiful photos I’d take for this feature but, unfortunately, we’ve been too busy  enjoying our vacation so I did not have time to do everything that I’ve wanted.

At least I’ve managed to  snap a few beautiful views of the island.

Here is also an overview of some of the

Want It: Chanel Yeux Ombre Premiere Eye Shadow Collection

Long gone are the days when I was buying all those huge eye shadows palettes one, after another and blending 4-5 shadows together to create a look. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

This is why now I am mostly excited about the single or the duo releases. And just when I thought that I don’t want any eye shadows, Chanel are releasing these new beauties as a part of their Yeux  Ombre Premiere Eye Shadow Collection. Already available from Saks and Bergdorf Goodman and Nordstrom (here and here)

While I have selected the shades I will be trying out, there are many more other variants which also include yellow, blue and other more daring options.

And how cool are the looks Lucia Pica created on Kristen Stewart? Simple yet

Beauty Inspiration: Blair Waldorf’s Wedding Makeup

My most embarrassing secret? I watch Gossip Girl…

Why did even start watching it? To look at the makeup and clothes!

But then I got sucked in and, although I liked only the first two seasons, I still watch it because of the beautiful makeup and clothes but now also for Chuck and Blair (can’t believe I am even writing this).

I also love Leighton Meester, she is such a beauty!

I have already written a post about Gossip Girl and Chanel Makeup but the reason why I am writing this one is to share the gorgeous makeup look Blair wore to her wedding!

I am totally in love with whole look and the details:

  • the blue based glossy pink lips, such colour looks amazing on Blair, and it’s my favourite!
  • pink eye shadows with the crease contouring (there is a photo below), eye liner and some natural looking false lashes; made her eyes look defined but nothing dramatic, perfect for the wedding day!
  • I also like how the Make-Up Artists used the

Lipsticks in Red: Chanel, Dior, Guerlain and Lancome

I am the biggest fan of a red lipstick, and if there is anything better than a red [lipstick], that is one in a red packaging.  And it looks like it is a mini trend for the Autumn, and it is something  that has my 100% approval.

Let’s take a look.
