School Outfit Ideas | Winter


Hello, everyone 🙂

How are you? 

I just got home from class and I’m preparing myself a relaxing bath with some vanilla bath bombs, but I wanted to write this post before I can relax properly. As I mentioned on my Instagram and Facebook page, I will post the details of my outfit of the day, but I decided to include another outfit that I wore last week. The first outfit is more on the classy side, whereas the other one is very casual yet trendy.

 I hope you have an amazing evening and I will see you guys in the next post.

Born This Way Foundation | Review


Hello, guys 🙂

Happy New Year, everyone!  This new year, view the world with a positive outlook, speak your heart out with confidence, listen to others as well as your inner voice and you will be on the correct road in the correct direction. If the previous year hasn’t given you something to be happy and proud of, don’t fret. If the 31st of December signifies the end of a year, the 1st of January signifies the beginning. You have life; you have hope, go out there and accomplish all that you want. Happy 2017!

I decided that my first post of 2017 would be a detailed review of the famous Born This Way foundation by Too Faced. I have purchased this like 3 weeks ago and I’ve been wearing it 5 times since then. I am in the colour Porcelain, which is a fair shade with neutral undertones. 

Now, what it’s really cool is that it is said to be infused with coconut water to delicately replenish skin’s moisture levels, alpine rose to brighten skin’s appearance and promote elastcity and also hyaluronic acid for a smoother, more youthful appearance, so that’s another thing that made me want to get it. 

If you’ve seen the marketing for Born This Way, you know it promises benefits that blur the lines between skincare and makeup. With claims to moisturize and brighten skin while providing medium-to-full coverage that is “so undetectable, you can’t see the makeup and you can’t see imperfections”. I can’t see the difference in my skincare, but as far as makeup, it is one of the best foundations I have ever used. 

 

I have normal to combination skin, and the formula works very well on my type of skin. The coverage is medium with one layer and full with two layers, as it is said on the packaging. It looks flawless on the face, exactly like you were “born this way”.

The are only two things that I do not like about this foundation.

  1. If you are wearing it alone, without any powder, it does transfer quite easy. So I totally recommend using a setting powder with this. 
  2. It doesn’t have any SPF in it, which is not that big of a deal, but I do like to take extra protection of my skin.

 

After all, if I had to rate Born This Way foundation, I would definitely give it a 9/10. I totally recommend trying this foundation out, because you will be surprised of it’s quality. 

Until next time, I wish you an amazing week and for those who still have exams to take, lots of luck 🙂

Kylie Jenner Inspired | Golden Globes


Hello, everyone 🙂

I hope you are all having an amazing evening.

I am very excited for the today’s video because even tough I filmed this last week, I couldn’t manage to completely edit it until today. I am going to show you my “recreation” of Kylie Jenner’s look at the Golden Globes afterparty, which can totally be worn at many ocassions because it’s a bronzed look with a basic brown smokey eye and a nude-peachy lip. I hope you guys can find some inspiration on this video and if you attempt to recreate Kylie’s look too, please send me your photos. I would love to see them. 

Well, until next time I’ll see you guys later!

Hope you enjoyed, 

Carmen

 

Thinking about the FUTURE |#ChatWithMe


Hello, everyone 🙂

How was your day?  

I personally relaxed all day and enjoyed the first real snow here in my city. I was so impressed by the teeny-tiny snowflakes that showed up in the afternoon and completely changed the atmosphere of the surroundings, that later on turned into a really gorgeous snowblanket which transformed everything into a white fairytale. I have waited the whole month of December for a good snowfall to approach us and now it’s finally here. I don’t know about you but I am really happy about this weather even though I am a little bit sick.

Even tough this weather gives me a relaxed feeling, I certainly think that in those moments we think more about the problems and the concerns that we have. I am completely sure that every single person on this planet had concerning thoughts about his/her future at least one time. I can say that I am one of those people too.  How about you?

Am I gonna fail? Am I gonna be successful? Am I gonna rely on others? Am I gonna be independent? Am I gonna be poor? Am I gonna have a good wealth ?

If you have ever asked yourself one of the questions from the above then you are one of them too. But is it a real problem if you are thinking about your future, if you are insecure? Well, it’s not. It’s completely normal. You want to build a happy and successful live so that’s why you are so concerned. 

The real problem starts when you are overthinking about it. Some people think so much about their future that they forget to live in the present. Thinking too much about future is definitely bad. Well , if you want to know why,  future is unpredictable. I mean, you do have control under you and your person, but this means that you need to find out what makes you happy and what you are passionate about. The thing is about you trying to divert your mind. Do something you love!

Believe me, nothing can ever trouble you if you start enjoying what you do. Remember, diverting your mind is not running away from the problem. It is a way of facing it because, going against the storm is not a wise thing to do if you want to survive. 

So, as a conclusion, the best thing that we all need to do is simply living every moment that we are going through and do things that will help you to build the future that you are dreaming of. YOU are the leader of your progress and your own life. 

See you next time,

Carmen
