The MAC Bronzer I Will Be Using All Summer

MAC skinfinish natural bronzer

Name three things you would take to a dessert island: a lighter, a raincoat and bronzer. Call me a weirdo but I could easily survive without brows or mascara, but never give up on my bronzer. Yes, I would be already tanned on an island (guessing, if the weather was tropical) but I could not imagine a life without it because I´m that extra.. Continue reading

A Beauty Blogger´s Favourite: Mac Face And Body Foundation Review

mac face and body foundation review makeup

Please help me, I´m been nonstop thinking of Nutella crepes lately. There´s something about them that remind me of my sister and Italy, and I just cannot think of anything else. Is it too soon to say summer is just around the corner? It does not matter to me, because I´ve been planning holidays since the very first day of the year..

There´s a great summer ahead. Italy and France are right on the list and I can assume there will be a lot of hot days. Honestly, I would take anything as long as I could avoid whatever heat wave hits Europe this year. Makeup on summer is a tricky one but I believe this MAC Face and Body foundation could be everything I wished for. I love the fact it matches my skin perfectly, literally looks like my own (but better) after applying this. It has a watery texture, and it advises to shake before use. There´s a lot of opinions on how to blend the face and body foundation but personally I like using my fingers first and finishing with a beauty blender. It has a very light coverage; however, it is very buildable.  It is not super long lasting, but I would say it lasts pretty good for at least a few hours. Every time I wear it is like photoshop, my face simply looks good. This has been my go-to foundation for the past months, such a dream.

Also, I have not been able to ditch the Nutella crepes out of my head as I write this post, which are also a dream.

A Few Beauty Resolutions

beauty resolutions

I am great at my skincare routine and so bad about everything else. I can finally admit that. AM and PM face rituals are good, never missed. Even on tipsy nights, never* going to bed with makeup on. I can do that. I do it gracefully, step by step. But tell me about my body. Continue reading

Why I choose To Be A Minimal Blogger

minimal blogger

Is there such a minimal blogger concept? Did I just invent that? Probably, but I couldn´t find the words to explain what I really feel like in the blogging community. I don´t travel paradisiac islands on winter, I don´t buy expensive clothes and I don´t spend millions on products I won´t be using..

Essie Wicked Nail Polish

Essie wicked nail polish

I think I told you the story behind this one. I was lusting for this polish for months until I decided to go for it. I´m not usually the one to go for high end polishes but I was committed to this one. I had seen it non stop this winter, and instantly became a fan. Give me a good ol´ dark varnish and I´m all yours… Continue reading
