Natural Looks For Spring: Jill Stuart Bare Petal and Rouge Bunny Rouge

If there was a contest for the most Spring appropriate promo I would probably vote for Jill Stuart.

Although I am not a fan of such look on myself, it would look amazing on a lot of girls, it looks so fresh, romantic and pretty. And let’s not forget that I love Ginta a lot so that adds extra points, too.

For the fans of natural beauty I would also totally recommend this new beauty video from

I already made a preview of the upcoming lipsticks in February and here are more details about Yves Saint Laurent and Burberry Lip Mists.

Inspiration of March: Ginta Lapina

It’s been forever since I wrote my inspiration of the month for the last time. So I thought I’d share who inspired me a lot last month. And it was Latvian model – Ginta Lapina.

I first spotted her because of the Yves Saint Laurent makeup promo photos and I really liked her.

You can take a look at her NYMag profile here.

I love that she is always so different but always equally

Yves Saint Laurent Summer 2011 Makeup Collection

The lovely Planete Beaute is always the first to share about one of my favourite brands – YSL. Here is a preview of their Summer 2011 makeup collection.

Looks like it is all about the yellow and blue!  It makes me think about the sun and sea. I look outside my window and see lots of snow (which I LOVE) but I don’t really mind going to the  sunny beach actually.

Here is the promo image.  I love how bright and pigmented the eye shadows look like and the nail polish is so beautiful. But I have to say that I’d love to see Ginta Lapina (she was the face of Holiday and Spring, plus  Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks) again. Hope to see her in the future.

And here are the products
