Although plum and burgundy are the hottest lip colours this season red lip is often associated with the holidays! And you will always look classy and fabulous with red lipstick!
I’ve found this quote of Gwyneth Paltrow and I thought I’d share with you: “Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”
- So how do you wear your red? Do you like sheer and sparkling red gloss?
- Or maybe hot and glossy red lipstick?
- Fan of vintage glamour? Then you go for classy matte red lips!
I believe that every girl can find a perfect red for herself but no matter what kind of red you’ve chosen there are some tips that will help everyone:
1.Exfoliate and Moisturize
Make sure that your lips are moisturized (you can use a lip scrub before moisturizing, something like Sara Happ) and not dry so that the lipstick glides on and doesn’t emphasize the dry parts. What girl doesn’t like a beautiful lip balm especially the one that smells like strawberry and comes in a beautiful vintage package? Like this one I’ve got for myself from Rose & Co for £4.99 from Boots.
2. The Lipstick
I guess we all know how to use a lip gloss, but what about the lipstick? There are so many ways to do it! You can use it straight from the tube, use it with a brush or apply it with your fingers over the lip balm for a more natural and sheer effect.
This is how I like to use a red lipstick. I usually go for aRead More
Today after work I got myself a new storage for makeup (at last) and some of these beauties. Lots of glitter and strass, I can’t wait to create some looks with them and already see these beautiful pictures in my head.
And tomorrow I am going to do the look for the most gorgeous girl ever, can’t wait. Maybe one day I will show you my work;)
Obviously the glitter and strass are not for everyday looks, just for fun shoots for the holiday. And the weather here really makes me think about the holidays. I’ve already posted this photo on twitter but here is for the rest of you. And what is the weather like where you live?
I know that a lot of peopleRead More
If you follow me on twitter you probably remember that I had a dream that I met Dick Page for an exclusive Shiseido spring 2011 makeup collection preview (and, yes, all the items from the collection were gifted to me in a beautiful gift box). Now that would be awesome if he would ever pick me for such an event but now I can only dream.
By the way, I had a lot of dreams about Creative Directors of makeup brands, Famous Make-Up Artists and even beauty bloggers. But it’s better not to get into the details 😉
So I was very curious to see if the collection I saw in my dream would be any similar to the real Shiseido collection. Unfortunately, not really. In my dream there were a lot of pastel shades and light textures with pearls. Ok, at least the “pearl thing” is close… There will be the new Shimmering Rouge Lipsticks.

I am wearing a pink nail polish for the 3rd time in my life! I can imagine how much you all are surprised. But everything is very simple. I just don’t like pink. That’s it! For the first time I wore pink nail polish for the wedding of my best friend who said that I should wear a pink dress. At first I thought this is some kind of a cruel joke (as she knows that I would never wear a pink dress) but unfortunately, it wasn’t.
The second time I wore pink was when I’ve got this nail polish several months ago in summer. I’ve wanted to try it but I forgot to take the photos of back then. So now I am wearing this nail polish for the second time! It feels very strange to see my pink nails but it’s ok I guess, not that bad after all.
As for this nail polish, I am veryRead More
