Autumn. I can´t believe fall is just around the corner. It seems like yesterday that I began my holydays. But the fact is that I already see leaves on the floor and a cold that already asks for sweaters. Not that I'm complaining, this is probably my favorite time of the year! As I said on Monday, I'm going through a phase where I just want to wear sneakers. And these are, for the moment, my favorite. They are so unique and able to transform a simple and casual look into something more interesting. And let me say this: how cool are these sunglasses???
Primer. As you know (or should know) before applying any makeup and after moisturizing your skin you should apply a primer. If you don´t know what I'm talking about, a primer is a kind of cream that is applied before the foundation and helps to "smooth" the skin, eliminating the appearance of pores, which helps in the proper application of the foundation.
Today I´ll talk about a primer that is what I like to call "magic in a tube" because it really is. Not only has the most wonderful smell in the world, something between coconut and caramel, as it does its job more than well. As you can see by the photograph it has some color but blends with the skin quite well. I advise this manly for who have oily to combination skin, helps a lot to hide unwanted oiliness. The only downside to this product is the price, but I promise you it´s worth it. I bought the smaller tube (7.5 ml) as I didn´t want to give too much money for a product that I might not like but I tell you as soon as I tried I run to buy the bigger tube!
Verdict: It's the best primer I have ever tried. It´s everything that I ask for a primer. Would I buy it again? YES! YES! YES!
Comfy. Lately if there is anything I haven´t given up is comfort in the feet. Strange to say that I prefer a good pair of sneakers instead of killer heels as about 1 year ago I just wore high heels, I didn´t even own sneakers (not joking). Knowing how to build different styles and not to fall into the trap of too much sporty, this is a trend that I hope will stay for many seasons because I don´t know if I can get used to heels again! So, I leave you with some inspirations of the models that I like the most.
Play. I was having a huge desire to buy a playsuit but the truth is I couldn´t find any that I really liked or one that fits me. Lately I've noticed that most stores don´t make clothes for curvy girls, but for the skinny (without literally no boobs and no butt) that fashion created. Maybe I'll touch a sensitive spot but it has to be said and I hope someday to actually change some minds. In the world there aren´t only (too) skinny women, in fact, most women have (beautiful) curves. But unfortunately, with the clothing that is sold becomes almost impossible to show curves with pride. That said I have had extreme difficulty in finding a playsuit for me. Tired of searching, I decided to play with an old dress and make him a playsuit. And the result is here, a perfect one for my body. Oh, remember when I told you about the only hat that fits in my little head? Here it is in all its gorgeousness!
(EN) Foundation. Today I will talk about my everyday makeup basic: foundation. With light or full coverage, I can no longer leave the house without it. Even if I don´t have time for full makeup, I don´t pass foundation, mascara, and lipgloss, it always gives me a fresh face, especially in the morning. When I started to see some reviews on this Rimmel foundation I was amazed, it looked like a miracle product! So I decided to buy, try it and share my opinion with you.
(PT) Base. Hoje venho falar-vos um pouco de um produto básico do quotidiano: a base. Com pouca ou muita cobertura, já não consigo sair de casa sem ela. Mesmo que não tenha tempo para o resto, não abdico da base, da máscara e de um lipgloss, sempre dá outro ar à cara, principalmente de manhã. Quando comecei a ver algumas reviews sobre esta base da Rimmel fiquei espantada, parecia um produto milagroso! Por isso decidi comprar, experimentar e partilhar convosco a minha opinião.
Holy shade. One of the biggest disadvantages of having a small head (but perfectly proportioned) is not finding hats that fit me. Each time I try and fall in love with one, is truly disappointing, not only they are massively huge, but I can completely bury my all head in them. I know what you are thinking: customize hats. But girls, let's be honest, they are crazy expensive and you know that my blog envolves the incessant search for cheaper stuff (without compromising style, of course). At this moment I have a few hats in my possession, but honestly only one is the perfect size. And let me tell you, he was my best friend at the weekend because, as I told you, my skin is extremely sensitive so I have to protect it. It is the perfect accessory for all year, whether for the rain or the intense sun. So I'll leave you with some homework: if you know any store, online or not, that sells hats in small sizes, just let me know in the comments!
Casual. Apparently I didn´t publish a look for months (upsssss, bad blogger)! But now that I have my life organized I can finally devote some extra time to this space that has brought me so much joy, new friendships, experiences and above all a lot of fun! Therefore and continuing the last inspiration post, I present you my beautiful black shorts that I have been wearing to dead (not joking!).
Simple looks are always my favorite ones, so those who don´t know me (yet) must learn that I don´t wear elaborate looks, I love my basics. My upgrade to simple outfits is to highlight the accessories, in other words, wear unique pieces that make a statement, as the case of the earring I'm wearing or the sandals. So, find ways to make your outfit interesting.
Trying. In order to continue my beauty/beauty products posts, today I bring you some of the products I want to buy (really) soon. Lately I have devoted some time to look for more information on makeup and consequently I have been following several beauty vloggers on youtube, mostly to find out what are the best products out there, new makeup techniques and many other things. Well, coming to the main point, I wanted to create a simple makeup routine for everyday but one that I could easily adapt for a night look. In short, I am learning a lot and have already managed to acquire a beauty routine. So, I still have many products I want to buy, from cheap brands to luxury ones. Today I am going to show you the cheapest options I want to get. If you already have any of these let me know what you think!
1. Naked Basics. Urban Decay / 2. Volum'Express The Falsies. Maybelline / 3. Casting Sunkiss Jelly. L'Oreal / 4. Colorburst Matte Balm. Revlon.
Fresh. With the beginning of August and the tremendous heat that has been on the past few days, I have a huge problem with building fresh good looking looks. I came across that the best solution would be shorts, mainly those cut loose and in neutral colors. Despite not having a wide variety of them, those who I already have allow me to create outfits for different occasions. I promise that this week I show you an outfit with my latest purchase, some beautiful black shorts! Until then I leave you with some beautiful inspirations for this hot August month.
