Beauty Inspiration: Collistar Italian Beauty AW 2014 Makeup Collection

You know how much I adore  plum/berry lips and nails but seeing that everywhere now  makes me want to wear something different. And when I saw the promo image for the new Collistar campaign I just fell in love with it.

Besides the fact that it is elegant and beautiful,yet simple to re-create, I am sure that it [my love for the collection] has something to do with the fact that it was inspired by Italian beauties.

If you follow me on Pinterest, you’ve probably already noticed that I find Italian women absolutely gorgeous. Monica, Cristina, Mariacarla, Bianca, to name just a few of my favourites…

I have  found a tutorial on Collistar’s channel where you can see all the products in action. And, did I mention that

Gucci Beauty Line Is Here: Preview of All Products

The most exciting new beauty launch of 2014? Definitely Gucci Beauty! Great news – it is already available from Saks and Neiman Marcus.

theBalm Nude Dude Eye Shadows Palette for Fall 2014

When I first heard that theBalm were about to launch a palette called Nude Dude, I actually thought it was a joke.  I highly recommend that you do not google “nude dude”,  as I did, trust me on this one. Now, I am hoping that I won’t get wrong kind of audience with such title…

But actually it is true!
