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!

Because I deleted the post with the haul video and because I didn’t have anything to show you today, I decided to write again the article, this time with pictures. I know I’ve been buying lots of things lately, but I still feel like I have nothing to wear in my wardrobe, if you know what I mean…

This school week is my last one and after finishing the tenth grade, I’m having holidays for more than two months. I hope it will be legendary. My summer has already started pretty well: I went to the movies, I went out with some friends, I’m attending an IT project and I also have loads of plans for the next few months. But I’m very tired and all I want right now is to relax. So I’m off the watch Two and a Half Men 6×03 and then the football matches. By the way, I’m in heaven because Germany is the only team from Euro 2012 with 9 points! What a pity that I’ve finished my homemade Cuba Libre :(

What was that promise that you made?

As I’ve promised, my latest purchases.

These days were kinda full for me (visits or guests), but tomorrow I have to start with some studying and homework and I have to confess: I’m not at all in the mood for it. I’m off the watch Gossip Girl all new.

Fall 2012 RTW

Yesterday morning I was chilling at home on my iPad, when I discovered the new Ready-to-Wear collections for this fall on the Style.com app. I didn’t like all the collections, but these ones were amazing! The first look is Fendi and I find the combination with the purple trench coat and the red boots fabulous. The second one is Marni for H&M, which we’ll find in Romania and even in Iasi soon. The entire collection is very interesting, with unusual textures and prints. The last two looks are MaxMara and even though they’re a little bit boyish, I find them very elegant. What do you girls think?

Yesterday’s outfit

I’ve noticed that overlaps are in trend now so I wore this purple Stradivarius top with the white extra-large Stradivarius blouse yesterday when I went out with the girls in a cafe. The pants are the new ZARA ones, the bag is Daniel Ray, the white flats and aviators are Moa and the accessories are Meli Melo, except from the vintage watch.

Today I went shopping with mum. I’ll show you tomorrow what I bought/received. And I have a lot of material for the blog! After a bubble bath and dinner, I’m going to watch the last episodes of Sex and the City season 2.
