Beauty Inspiration and Photos of the Week Vol. 4

This post is basically a mix of everything that inspired me this week and about the things that I loved.

I am totally obsessed with Jennifer Lopez’s makeup for V magazine. Those brows, contoured cheeks and gorgeous eye makeup, just WOW!

I had to make a screenshot of this scene from the last Game Of Thrones episode (season 2). Don’t worry, it’s not s spoiler, it was not for real but because of magic, unfortunately.

Avocado has been on my top food list for the last several weeks. Here is a simple sandwich  with avocado, tomato, salmon and cheese. And on the other photo, it’s a salad with avocado, tomatoes, fried Camembert.

You probably already know that I have a thing for red eye makeup. This is the one I am in love right now

Blake Lively Wears NARS and Looks Fabulous

I  often like to look at different make-up looks for inspiration and I found this pretty look of Blake Lively aka Serena from Gossip Girl. Thought, I’d share what products were used to create it with you.

It’s quite an old photo and it is from Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala  (3rd of May).

But this is such a beautiful summer look with bronzed eyes and fresh pink lips.

Some of the products that were used:

Face

  • PRO-PRIME Skin Smoothing Face Prep
  • Beverly Hills Multiple Tint

Eyes

Inspiration of May: Leighton Meester aka Blair Waldorf

As you know, every month I blog about women that inspire me. This month please meet my girl crush – Leighton Meester.

I  LOVE this girl! And not only her but also Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl. She and Chuck are the reason why I watch the show (and I know that I am not alone here). But it would be better for me not to continue, lol. I can be easily carried away telling you how much I love this couple.

I guess no matter how old we are we all, well, almost all (I am talking about females here) have  some kind of a crush. Some love Twilight, some Carrie and Big, some  Potter and I love Chuck and Blair! Ok, enough of it…

Back to Leighton/Blair, Did I tell you how much I love them both?!Did I ?

It was so hard to choose the photos for the post because I have hundreds ( yes, I am serious). I save them for makeup and style inspiration!

This is probably my favourite photo of Leighton.

She looks amazing with the cat eyes

Love the wavy hair and the makeup

Blair is amazing, one of my fav characters ever

Leighton looks gorgeous and it seems that she can pull off every kind of colour

Beautiful Blondie

So elegant, love the style

And.. I just can’t help myself! I must post some Chuck and Blair photos, right?

Makeup4All Magazine: How It Was Created and FAQS

I’ve got so many comments and questions about the first issue of the on-line magazine Makeup4All that I just have to make this post and tell you about everything. Also I would like to tell you how I got this idea and how did it all come together. But first of all I want to thank you all from thew bottom of my heart for all the lovely comments, e-mails and tweets that I got. You support means so much to me!

Where from did I get the idea and how it all started?

I’ve always wanted to do something special for the blog but didn’t know what. So one day I was chatting with Mr. (yes, he has to listen about my blog, about how much I need a new Chanel lipstick and a new purse etc. ) and he told me: “Well, you waste (I’d say spend) money on magazines so why don’t you make your own?!” I was shocked. Like how can I make my own magazine? So many people work on it: writers, editors, photographers, stylists, designers, make-up artists  etc. How can I make it myself? Are you crazy? But he would never stop. We were talking about it since summer (or even last spring) and this winter I finally gave up. It was a huge challenge. But I love to risk sometimes. I was also curious about the results.

What the process looked like?

Probably the most difficult part was to think about the content. I was brainstorming it for a long time. When I finally had some ideas I was looking for photos and Press Releases. I also wanted to have some tutorials and interviews. So  I contacted people and brands. So many never answered so I would like to thank all of you who did. The idea to make it a Spring issue came later because at first I didn’t know what would be the main topic of this all.

Who helped me?

Love the Look: Gucci at Milan Fashion Week

I absolutely love this look Pat McGrath created for Gucci runway at Milan Fashion Week. It is so simple and yet amazing. I even like the clumpy lashes in some way. But the lips… oh the lips, they are gorgeous.

Last week I got myself a very dark matte lipstick and was wearing it to my parent’s. They both had different opinion about it. My Mama said that I looked like a vampire and my Dad though that I looked like an actress. Interesting ideas. As for myself, I love it and I think it looks nice as long as you know how to wear it. Because dark lipstick can really make you look bad if you are not careful with the application.

Here is one more look
