Makeup and manicure trends fall 2017

Here’s what I’m noticing looking at all the fall collections. Brows are on. Definitely. I don’t know whether and how much exactly you like to shape your brows or use brow makeup products, but if you do, you are ever so lucky right now. Then again, if you’ve never thought much about brows, it’s a good time to start, because there are even more brow products on the market than usual at the moment. You […]

ORLY La La Land spring 2017 swatched

Fairyland. Wonderland. Dreamland. La La Land. La La Land by ORLY, to be precise. Let’s not get into talking movies here and argue about, whether it’s a good one or not, and whether we like it or not 🙂 Let me just say, that in terms of tone and mood, it seems to me, this collection is very much in tune with the movie. It’s delicate, fragile, tender in a way. And a little fairytalish. […]

Ombre trend has been really strong in lip colour recently. And it still is. I’ve already told you about it here Ombre and gradient trend in beauty and makeup spring 2017.  If you are interested, take a look. It’s a fun and artsy trend, it’s not easy to pull and to do though for those of us, who aren’t professional makeup artists. So, beware. On the other hand, this trend is a good way to bring a […]

You know how holiday collections are so closely linked to holiday season in our mind? Yeah, I know 🙂 Well, I’ve been meaning to ask you for a while… why is that? Let’s get distracted from this notion for just a bit here, Ok. What is holiday season, in essence? What are holidays? Uh-huh, it’s one big special occasion 🙂 Well, do we only have special occasions in our life during holiday season? Of course, […]

Deborah Lippmann Message in a Bottle spring 2017 swatched

Here’s a little Message in a Bottle for you from Deborah Lippmann. It’s a spring collection, but the shades in it are not too spring like, if you know what I mean. They are soothing and pretty and subdued. At the same time, they are not too pastel, not too candy like, not too baby doll like. Which might be a good thing, if you are aiming at an exquisite look rather than a cute […]

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? […]

Summer 2017 makeup and manicure trends

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 […]
