Sun-kissed glow makeup

Hi guys,

Last day of summer is finally here but that doesn’t mean our summer spirit is over yet. Most of you by now are pretty bronzy 🙂 , so am I actually, so I came up with this “sun-kissed” face glow makeup with light contouring so much as to highlight the cheeks, forehead and the tip of the chin.

For the eye makeup I chose shimmer shadows which emphasize tanned skin and brown eyes especially gold, dark gray, light brown, pale gold and copper.

I chose shimmery instead of matte because I find matte colors rather dull for sun-kissed skin but I enjoy matte lip colors such as light brown, chocolate or nude especially if you like to balance the shimmery shades of your eye makeup.

For contouring I used  – Artistry® Limited-Edition 3D Face Powder – Sun-kissed which gives you the shimmering glow of sun-kissed, radiantly illuminated skin. This multi-effect powder highlights, brightens, and adds dimension to your complexion. For the cheeks I used Artistry Signature Color® Blush, shade Golden Light. For a final touch, I used Artistry® Signature Eyes Volume Mascara® – Black added in three layers. I hope you guys find this look inspirational and as flattering for a tanned skin as I do.

Have a great day guys and feel free to share and comment!

Summer Makeup

Hei guys!

Summer is kicking and vibrant colors are finally out of the closet. I ‘ve always been fond of  colors such as lilac, purple, blue, pink and green so this time I’ve created a cut crease makeup style in shades of blue and lilac.

I used black liner for the bottom lash line for a better contour but I left the upper lid clear in lilac because I didn’t want to turn it into a smoky eye look. I emphasised my crease cutting it in shades of blue (matte and shimmer) and I added three coats of volume mascara.

The brows are lightly colored in brown with a brow pencil but you can always use a little eye shadow in a similar color as your natural hair.

My lips are contoured with a nude lip pencil and the lipstick is a mixture between a light shade of pink and a dab of beige lip gloss on top. The cheeks are lightly colored in a shade of rose pink and for the face contouring I used the 3d powder that I’ve already presented to you in my other post. All products used in this look are from the makeup brand Artistry.

Thank you guys for visiting and I hope you find this makeup style fun for the summer of 2016 :).

Have a wonderful day!

Nude Smokey

Hi guys!

I have recently bought this new makeup color pallete from Artistry Signature Color Edition of 2016  in cool shades called Plumberry just to keep up with the hot summer days and nights.

This makeup style is appropriate for all daily occasions and it surely complements all skin types and eye colors. The blue shade lip gloss is from Pacific Lights Collection ARTISTRY called Tropical. This lip gloss lights up when you open it and it has a little mirror on the side so you can better see what you’re doing when night time falls in. It also has a sheer texture which won’t affect or change your lip undertone.

So girls, If it’s too hot outside for you, this lip gloss has a minty  flavour which will certainly  cool you down a little :).

I also used a natural shade of fluid foundation and a mineral powder in medium shade from Artistry. The 3 D powder lightly contours the face in natural tones giving that nude face tone altogether.

Thank you guys for stopping by! Have a wonderful week and stay tuned for more summer makeup ideas.

Stylish shimmer makeup for 2015 New Year’s Eve

Shimmer eye makeup 2015

Hi guys!

I know there is some time left till New Year’s Eve party and many of you party lovers out there already know what dress, hairstyle and makeup look you will wear. But there are some of you, maybe just like me, with no plans whatsoever and with no idea on what to wear on this special night ( indoor, outdoor, glam club, rock bar, or your parents couch, hope not). In that case, I always start with my makeup, then comes the hair arrangements (or not, depends on my mood) and last but not least, clothes to wear.

Shimmer eye makeup 2015

This year, I thought a cool glamorous shimmer eye would do the trick, wavy hair ( I just rolled it all up in layers and pinned each layer just as if I would use plastic rolls, sprayed some finishing spray on and left it like that until makeup was done), jeans, loose knit mint green sweater, silverish accessories (if you are blonde you could go with gold/gold-like accessories) and some crazy old/new grudge boots and you will definitely rock the house. Of course you adapt your clothing as you wish, I just shared my own style, especially if you will attend a more sophisticated party. This glamorous shimmer makeup will attract eyes on you wherever you will be on that 31st of December, 2015.  Shimmer eye makeup 2015

The balance between eye makeup, lips cheeks and face contouring should always be a priority. There are tons of pictures of makeup techniques on Pinterest that should help you get this makeup done somehow. Make sure you have a sticky creamy eye shadow base for the glitter to stick on and not fall out. That’s kind of a nice trick to use if you do not have a glitter glue around the house that is not toxic. You can use fat creamy crayons in various shimmery colors. I used Artistry, which is one of the world’s top five skincare brands. There are many types of sticky texture crayons out there, just pick one in the same colour as your top shimmer/glitter accent.

I used graphic technique for contouring and colouring my lips in nude shades. I used a brownish lip liner for the outside contour and a more dark plum lip liner for the interior contour. In between I used a chocolate beige lipstick to give it some highlight. I got this pretty cool nude contoured lips that calm down the shimmer/glitter eye makeup. I used light pink shimmer blush for highlights, light velvet for the apple cheeks and medium bronze contour powder for the face bones (including my nose, only the sides).

Tadaaa! This is how I would go out at the 2015 New Year’s Party! Stylish but casual, romantic but down to earth. What do you think of my take on this New Year’s hair & makeup look?

 

Thank you for stopping by guys! Have wonderful Christmas Holidays and cherish those beautiful family moments! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Last but not least, I really hope you have a blast on your 2015 New Year’s Party, whether you spend it at home with your beloved or partying like a freak at the office with other workaholics like you, outside in the snow, under the stars or at a rock bar, stay beautiful and happy! Until next time…

Retro Stage Makeup

Hei guys! Long time since my last post but my summer’s been wild! I am back now and ready to create some new makeup & hairstyle concepts.

For a while now my thoughts and feelings surrounded the idea of a combination between Retro, Boho, Stage Hippie. It is a daring combination but I think something vibrant and romantic came out of the mix.

The concept evolves around stage concerts especially summer festivals :).. I had jazz back-up vocal ladies in my mind as well as  hippie boho singers from back in the day all inspiring me to actually do something in this way. The hairstyle involves medium to long hair  braied  in a long dutch braid which I than wrapped a in a wired headband retro head scarf.

Makeup was done with products from Make-up Studio(translucent powder no 2), Artistry (concealer and foundation) and for the eyes and lips I used Show Make up By Fabio Stefano. Let me know what you think about my concept :). Would you wear this on stage? 🙂 Leave a comment below!

If you have questions about this concept please PM me. Thanks for stopping by!

Daytime/Work/Office Makeup

Hi guys!

I’m very fond of transparent/translucent make-up because it gives me a boost for a good attitude whenever going somewhere or meeting someone or even going to work, it’s less intimidating and it doesn’t make me think about how I look all the time..I guess it gives me mobility and a natural feel about myself.

I know there are many of you out there fond of this particular make-up style or technique so I guess this look is relevant to you.

So, If you would like to wear a translucent make-up look, you need to have clean, hydrated skin. If you are dealing with skin issues, try my recipes for hydrating masks or even considering some new healthy foods low on sugars that will surely change your skin radically and of course, you should drink natural plant tea which really tones yours skin and enlightens it. Sport and leasure activities will also do the trick if you want your skin to look healthy and shiny because stress is out there and taking action really fast on our health. All these “hard to do” tasks are necessarry in one’s lifestyle in order to stay in shape and look healthy thus liking to wear soft, translucent make-up.

Those out there that are not willing to change their stressful lifestyles will always have skin and health issues making them wear layers and layers of make-up just to cover things up.

For this make-up look, I used some of my favourite ARTISTRY products such as:

ARTISTRY Concealer Stick– light shade

ARTISTRY Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15 – Tint 5 (Natural)

ARTISTRY Exact Fit Pressed Powder – Cream shade ( for the eye make-up base and for under the eye area )

ARTISTRY Signature Eyes Length & Definition Mascara

ARTISTRY Light Up Lip Gloss – Confetti (neutral)

ARTISTRY Automatic EyeBrow Pencil – Taupe

ARTISTRY Cheek Color– Rosewood and Sunkissed

For the eye make-up I used warm shades of browns, cream shades, silky shimmering palletes. You cand choose your own colors but make sure you dab your brush just a little in each of those colors and blend well just to make sure you get that “transparent” look. Insist with your mascara thus making your eyes look bigger without having to wear intense colors.

I know ARTISTRY can be hard to find because they don’t sell at large scales but there are many distributors around every big city of the world so you can always ask on the internet who has acces in your town or city.

If you do not have any of the listed products above you cand always check out the links and get inspired.

Hope you enjoyed my post and hope you all stay inspired and enthusiastic !  🙂
