I’ve always been a big fan of simplicity and naturality when it comes to makeup and this is something that I learned years ago from my guru: Bobbi Brown. Some days ago I heard she is leaving her makeup brand by the end of 2016.

She is a professional makeup artist who became well known for her natural approach in contrast with the bright colors used during 80’s and 90’s. She was an example of an enterpreneur woman: released her own brand together with a chemist and was successful.

I can remember the first time I went to her makeup store: I was seventeen and had some clues on makeup, but wanted to learn more of this amazing world full of possibilities. That was when I found out that her lipsticks  and foundations would be part of my whole life. She has used real women as models since she started her career, something that caught my attention from the very beginning, as she was showing the inner beauty and strong points of each women: this is the aim of makeup.

Here is a list of my favorite products:

-Stick foundation and compact foundation: I love their natural coverage and texture. They hide imperfections without looking heavy on my face and last the whole day.

-All her lipsticks: really creamy and smooth.

Blushes: their texture is smooth and blend perfectly. They are really pigmented and last all day and night.

CRAZY ABOUT MAKEUP!

First of all let me apologize for any  possible language mistakes! I am a common girl from Barcelona who teaches English and History and who also loves advising normal people how to look like a super model! just kidding…

 My name is Sara. So what am I doing here talking about all this stuff?! 

Well I love arts and writing, so here I am mixing my two passions. I consider makeup as an ART. I’ve been into makeup since I was a teen with spots to be covered,  little by little I’ve been improving my experience with loads of curiosity, research, lessons and with self discipline. 

I would like to bring my experience to regular women who care about their appearance but who don’t have a clue where to start from and want to keep it simple and natural. I also want to help teens to go through this difficult acne and insecurities time and men who want to look hot!

 I hope to be helpful and also learn from all of you too!

 MAC “Girl about town” and Chanel rouge, The Balm Mary Loumanizer to highlight cheekbones, Too faced “Better than sex” mascara: amazing eyelashes. Also Too faced “Shadow insurance” lid primer. Kat von D black eyeliner for those who want to create cat eyes without failing! Bobbi Brown products, of course! Eyeshadows: the one and only “Naked 1, 2 and 3” from Urban Decay; Dior‘s pigmented palettes and Estée Lauder awsome shades
