I think Lily Collins has the perfect face for any type of look but this year has been really astonishing in the Golden Globes red carpet: everything was great, her makeup, her dress and her hair matched with perfection, looking like a real modern princess.

Last Sunday she wore a Lâncome total look in rosy matte eyeshadows and matte red lips created by her makeup artist Fiona Stiles. What surprised me was that Stiles created the eyeshadow tone using pale blushed color lip liner as a base and a petal blush to intesify the color! For the perfect matte lipstick shade that would match Lily’s dress she chose Lâncome l’Absolu Rouge in Souvenir, after trying several shades together with the artist.

I was so in love with this look that inspired me to create a similar look but with a daily twist. Instead I decided to use more neutral colors such as brownish pink tones. Here you have the result:

 Obviously it is quite different as I don’t attend to red carpet events, maybe I go to the movies once per week! To me would be strange to wear very dramatic makeup on a Sunday afternoon so I prefer this natural approach for my look. For the eyeshadow I’ve mixed  and blended Strawberry and Caramel tone with a little bit of Cherry from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. For my cheeks I decided to use Sleek blush in Flushed (a shade that I totally love), and for the lips I picked Kat von D Everlasting lipstick in Double Dare, a brownish pink tone perfect for a day makeup. These days I’ve been having problems with some spots so I chose Fit me matte foundation in Buff Beige by Maybelline applied with my beige Beuty blender. I concealed my under eyes with Nars Radiant Concealer in Vanilla and Laura Mercier Loose Setting powder. For the final touch, as usual, I’ve used my Better than Sex Too Faced mascara. Hope you like it!

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!!!

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!

img_20161103_155845 These are some of my “essentials”:

 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
