It’s hard to look right at you baby

I love using Instagram (@damisabina)! I don’t post every two hours, but still I love to check it twice a day :) Please follow me! Here’s a collage with what I’ve been up lately: work out in the attic, sun bathing on the roof with ice cream and music, baking brownies, reading magazines, no make-up and lunch with mum at Subway. Would you like this kind of posts now and then?

Right now I’m kind of sleepy, but after I finish writing this, I’m going to make myself some breakfast (I’m starving) and eat it while watching another episode of The O.C. Yes, I’ve chosen The O.C and I don’t regret it, because it’s amazing! My favorite character is Seth, but this time not only because he’s very cute, but because he has a nice soul and way to behave. Have a nice day and hope you’ll hear from me tomorrow!

What’s in my make-up bag?

I had a dilemma, but I finally decided what to post! I wrote an article of this kind once (a year and a half ago I think), so things in my make-up bag have changed since then. I grouped them by category: face, eyes and lips (E.LF? :D) So…

  1. For my face I use the Nivea Natural Beauty face cream, Stay Matte by Rimmel London foundation, Miss Sporty corrector stick and Bourjois Paris flower perfection powder, which I apply with an E.L.F powder brush. The face cream is OK: not the best, not the worse I’ve ever used; some may say it’s a BB cream because it is colored and it’s also moisturizer, like every single Nivea face cream that exists. The foundation is nice, it makes your face indeed matte and if you know how to choose your shadow (I needed some help from a Douglas employee because my skin is not pinkish or yellowish), you’ll be satisfied. The corrector stick I use to cover some spots, but I’m sure there are some better ones than this (it was very cheap, so I can’t be so demanding). And the last, but not least: the flower perfection powder has an amazing smell, but this is not why I bought it for. It has no color, which is perfect, because my face is already full with different products I used before. I put it on to give my skin a uniform look and to fix the foundation. In the end, I believe my face doesn’t look very… full and this is the most important thing to me!
  2. For my eyes I first put on a primer from E.LF. (less than 2 euros, but THE BEST!), then I choose a shadow from my E.LF. eyes transformer kit. This step I skip sometimes for various reasons like: the lack of time or mood or I just don’t feel like changing the color of the eyeshadow. Then I apply at least two shadows from my Two Faced Smoky Eyes palette. In general, I use the day smoke, which fits the color of my eyes perfectly. When I want to change this, I use a color: black, silver, green, blue, pink or purple to match my outfit. After the eyeshadow, I always use a eyeliner and this one from Essence is really good and cheap! I started to use an eyepencil in March; until then I liked liquid eyeliners. The last thing is the mascara: always black; 1st the Rimmel London Scandaleyes for volume and then L’Oreal Paris Volumissime with Ceramide R because it’s waterproof.
  3. I like to keep it simple with my lips that’s why I only use a lip balm from H&M and a nude lipstick from Essence.

Well, this is it. Sorry for the long story, I hope you didn’t get bored and if you managed to finish all, I thank you! Now I’m gonna eat some pizza and watch a tv series. By the way, I finished Two and a Half Men!

lunch in Italy

lunch after getting off the plane

this was the first the time I had ever flown

yesterday I was in the mood for cocktails so I made myself Cuba Libre

and Rum Swizzle

I was bored :D

on Saturday I went to a fancy restaurant with my father, so I decided to wear something elegant. I picked this Aztec print dress from H&M, a Stradivarius bolero and watch, no name belt, Meli Melo bracelet + Zara mid heels; I straightened my hair and I tried something different with the make-up

I loved this street style picture I found today in Elle, the March issue. I really like color-blocking, but I’m not that brave to wear it

haha Karl Lagerfeld brooch

Enjoy the photobomb!

No man shall ever call me a coward

Yesterday I had the most lovely evening ever at an event with my parents. I know it sounds boring, but it wasn’t at all. The picture was taken before I did the video (so I had no make-up on), which is edited with Movie Maker :D and I can say I’m very proud of it (I’m not very good at technique, so yeah). I hope you will like it :) Now I have to go to prepare myself for another party, hihi. Have a nice day! ♥
