If you dont feel rested, at least look rested.

As much as try to sleep long and well enough, something always seems to wake me up in the middle of the night, thus breaking my beauty sleep and making me feel sooo tired in the morning. As a result, dark circles form under my eyes. This is something that happens to everyone, I'm just lucky enough mine aren't too deep and dark, more like a shadow you cannot remove!
Over the weekend I  went to M.A.C, decided to solve the "problem". From what I gathered online, the Mineralize Concealer was the best choice for me and the ladies at the store suggested it, along with a pressed powder to mattify the eye area after apllying the concealer.
Today was the first time I tried the products...

Without any makeup:


After applying the concealer and the powder (no foundation or any other products):

The results are subtle, but they're visible! I'm very pleased with my purchases and even more in love with the quality of M.A.C cosmetics.
After, it was time to apply black eyeliner, masc…

What's in it?

Sharing is caring and today I'm sharing what's in my beauty bag. Starting by the bag itself, it's part of a set from PRIMARK. Black with baby pink polka dots, silky touch, just great to carry in your bag everyday.

I have managed to keep it simple, carry around only the products I need on a daily basis. I'm sure this is an example of a very light beauty bag!
Lip products: if you're a frequent reader, it comes as no surprise that I use THE BODY SHOP to keep my lips smooth and hydrated. For a little glam in days when there is no time to wear lipstick, H&M's ligloss in a light coral shade does the trick just fine. It's a serious bargain and quite good.

Compact mirror: lilac, double, used to have a hawaiian flower printed...used to! Miscellaneous: hand cream from THE BODY SHOP, a vintage medicine box, o.b. box and some cotton balls because you never know!


This is it...if I'm not organized, by the end of the week I find two or three lipsticks in there. But I tr…

Shopping: Fall must-haves

Image
Summer is really my favourite season, with all the trips to the beach, the music festivals, the good weather, the shorts and sandals... But all good things come to an end and since september is here, fall is just around the corner. And with it, some shopping is required, to help fight the blues a little. Soon it will be time for hot tea and waiting for the bus while it's raining... Ah Fall, I haven't missed you a single bit.

Recently, I have been told that I should stop using pencil-like concealers and switch to liquid ones, due to extreme dry skin around and under my eyes. I looked around but I could use a little help: can anyone suggest me a good liquid/creamy concealer? The reviews of this one from M.A.C are pretty good, but I'd love to hear from you, dear readers! Since I didn't use a lot of makeup during the summer, this wasn't a priority. Now that I'm back to work, seems like a good time to invest in a good concealer. Leave comments, share experiences, let…
