Are you going on a cruise this summer? No? Of course, you are. Even if you are not. Here’s how. This collection by Givenchy will give you the sensation of being on a cruise, wherever you are.

What do we usually get in cruise collections? Bronzer […]

Aqua and coral and pink – summer always brings bright colours with it. Bright colours in clothes and shoes and purses and makeup… and manicure 🙂 I don’t know about you, I, for one, like bright manicures, but – let’s be honest here for a second, Ok – it’s July, and I’m just a little tired of all the intense colours. I can’t say I’m a huge dark manicures fan, but I kind of miss […]

Squeeze the packaging trend in makeup

This isn’t about products, this is about packaging. Or is it? Dior mascara, Bobbi Brown lipstick and what not comes in squeeze-it packaging now. How do I feel about all this squeezing frenzy? I don’t know. I’m apprehensive. It seems like a good idea, but I have my doubts and reservations. I just don’t think it will work as smoothly as it’s supposed to work. I mean, what do I squeeze to get it out? […]

This summer is very much of a classic. You know how? Because of all the bronze 🙂 Bronze is a traditionally summer shade, because it looks so good with tan and… well, because it kind of looks like tan. Anyway, bronze definitely rules this season. It’s almost always in base and tone, sometimes in manicure and eye colour, a lot of the times on the lips. It can be glowy and pearly or kind of […]

Why did I get this top coat in the first place? Because I like variety in manicure, and I do wear glitter shades sometimes. And as much as I like wearing them, getting them off is a real drag. Ugh. Wouldn’t you agree? I mean, it all looks so cool and special occasion like even, when it’s on your nails. Every time I try to remove glitter nail polish though… I swear – never again […]

Why am I posting about this collection now, even though it’s a holiday collection? Because it was cutting edge and kind of artsy for holiday season, and now in summer it’s just, well, chic. You’ll see 🙂 The name of this collection actually indicates chic in a lot of ways. The Sunset Strip is the name of a part of Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, California. This trendy area is full of fancy restaurants, boutiques, […]

In all honesty, these are Valentine’s specials, that is, limited editions that Clarins released in honour of Valentine’s Day, but there’s just something super spring/summer like about them. You’ll see 🙂 This mini collection has three blush shades in it and one universal lip shade. It’s all about lightweight and natural makeup. And isn’t this kind of makeup best suited for spring and summer, when the sun and warmth and beauty make us glow with […]

In fall Morgan Taylor released this collection that I happen to like a lot, because it has a bunch of very basic – in essence – nail shades in it mixed with some classy modern ones. As a result, these six shades are all great to have in any nail colour wardrobe. Trust me, even if you don’t think so now, these shades will come in handy again and again, and they’ll help you out […]

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now. You know how pink is like the colour in fashion this season? And when I say ‘pink’, I mean ‘bright pink’. Very much so. Well, Ok, it’s established, and we know that pink is trendy. You know how I know it? When news anchors who don’t necessarily wear super bright colours all wear pink all of a sudden 🙂 Anyway, pink is on. If […]
