Christmas makeup 🎅🌲

Now that holidays start I want to write a post about the makeup I use for these days. I always try to change but I have in mind that there’s a difference between makeup for family meetings and makeup to go out to parties. I normally keep it simple for dinners such as Christmas, with classical tones: my favorite are golden eyeshadow and red lips.

Here is my look and my fave products for tonight. Later on I’m going to write a step-by-step tutorial…but by now I’ve used:

Galenic Aqua Infini moisturizer.

Strivectin eye concentrate.

Clinique pep-start:used as a primer.

Nars Sheer Matte foundation in Santa Fe Medium 2.

Kat von D Shade and Light contouring palette.

Kat von D lock-it concealer in Cool tone.

The Balm creamy concealer in Light.

Too faced Insurance eyeshadow primer.

Bareminerals powder concealer in Summer bisque.

Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder.

Urban Decay Naked 2 eyeshadow palette.

Too faced Love Flush blush palette: Your love is King.

Beter Look expert brow gel.

Shu Uemura curler.

Too faced Better than sex mascara.

Nabla matte lipstick in Alter Ego.

Deborah tranparent universal lip pencil.

Nars brown pencil eyeliner in Mambo.

Kat von D trooper eyeliner.

I hope you like the look! MERRY CHRISTMAS my beloved readers!!!

My fave nail polish!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Today I’m sharing with you my top 1 nail polish brand: X Formula. I purchased it for the first time in Sephora and once I started I couldn’t stop getting more colors!

The best is the coverage, two coats are enough for me. Also the dry time is great, very quick!

Finally I must say I’m deeply in love with one of its red tones: Pirotechnics. I’m not into reds, but this specific shade is unique, bright and crazy as its name!

NOVEX Bamboo Sprout Shampoo

Hi guys! A week ago I had the opportunity to try out Novex Bamboo Sprout Shampoo. It has been in the right time as the last few months I had trouble managing my hair. It’s always been soft, straight and smooth, so I wanted it back as it used to be! I don’t really know the reasons why but these months I’ve been feeling it messy, weaker and more rebel in the mornings.

After trying other products (even lotions) with failure, I decided to give a chance to this one and it was a great decision! After using it for a week I fell in love with the way my hair looked like, healthy and full of shine. Now I also feel it stronger and easer to manage than before.

I’m looking forward to try all the products of the Bamboo Sprout line which I think I’m going to purchase and also the Keratin line, as I’ve heard very good reviews.

I really notice a difference in my hair so I think it worth a full post on the blog. I would recommend it to all if you without a doubt!

Winter trends

For this season we have many options: from nude to glittery, depending if we want to get a natural look for casual days or more intense for special nights out. I love matching eyeshadows and lips with nail polishes, so I choose a similar colour.

BURGUNDY AND PLUM 

Get inspiration in grape and wine colours! to me the sexiest together with red lips. I prefer to leave the rest of the face fresh and natural, just with the mascara and a blush which fits the lipstick tone.

BACK TO CLASSICS: RED AND GOLD

I love the classical Chanel look with golden eyeshadow and red matte rouge for special ocasions. These festive days are a great chance to try these colours,  but I always prefer them with a natural twist.

SMOKEY AND GOTHIC

The key with gothic look and smokey eyes is pointing out the eyes and use a nude lipstick. Smokey eyeshadows can be more natural in grey or brown shades during daytime and blacker at night. Here are some ideas and steps for your looks:

GO NATURAL

I love autumn colours and all its shades: bronze, beige, brown… I always use my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, it’s got great pigmentation and it is easy to blend.

My perfumes

Romance by Ralph Lauren it’s a classical. My all time favourites, femenine and emotional. Created when I was 19, it brings into my mind these special moments of my youth 😍 It’s floral, woody and aromatic, with a clear, transparent and simple packaging

Chance Eau Fraîche by Chanel. Once I got into this perfume I never left it! It’s a wonderful perfume with different twists. Fresh, clean and with a special smell, with a lot of personality.

Bright Crystal by Versace. I fell in love with it some years ago. It made me feel strong, confident and glamorous. It’s fresh and floral, even tropical, but with a subtle mixture.

Mugler Cologne by Thierry Mugler. I always thought Mugler’s perfumes where too strong for me…and suddenly I found this cologne! It is a fresh unisex perfume for every day. It smells fruity and fresh. I never have enough of it!

 

Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana. Even if it’s meant to be a fresh freagrance, it is everything but light as its long-lasting scent remains in my skin and clothes for hours! I just love its scent: fresh, woody and fruity.

Floral Touch by Tous. Its design is the first that caught my attention, but the best is inside! Created by the perfumist Sophie Labbé, it’s a floral fragrance that captures perfectly well the balance between sweet and fresh, without being too sticky.

Daisy by Marc Jacobs. The best packaging I’ve seen in my life! I discovered it living in England. It made me feel happy on rainy days! Just looking at the bottle made me smile…it’s way cute! It is easy to wear, simple, classical, fresh and young.

The One Perfume by Dolce & Gabbana. I’ve never been into perfumes… I always prefer eau de toilette, but this is an exception. In fact I love all Dolce & Gabbana perfumes! What I love the most is its long-lasting scent, without being sticky. It leaves a subtle smell, very personal.
