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 🙂

Fall Inspired Makeup Look | 2016


Hello, guys 🙂

How are you? I’m currently enjoying a big cup of green tea and scrolling down the news feed. 

Yesterday I finally managed to film the makeup look that I posted on instagram like 2 or 3 weeks ago and also edited it this morning. Firstly, I almost edited it last night but all the progress was lost and I can say that I sweared for like 15 minutes after that incident. But nevermind, after 3 hours of editing I managed to upload it. 

I am honestly in love with this makeup look simply because fall is my favourite season. Hope you like it too! If you do, please give it a thumbs up and also subscribe for more videos to come!

 

See you next time, 

Carmen


 

2 Fall Outfit Ideas | 2016


Hello, everyone 🙂

Welcome back!

With the temps cooling down more and more each week, we’re finally getting in the mood for cozy knits, coats, layers, leather, fur, and everything else that autumn weather implies.  Here are two of the outfits that I wore this week and I wanted to share the details with you. I know that they are not the best photos that I’ve ever taken but maybe you can get at least some ideas from them.

Let’s talk about | FEMINISM


What do we know about feminism

feminism-definition

Many of us may think that feminism means superiority of women. Well, that’s not the case. 

Feminism is a range of political movements, ideologies, and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve political, economic, personal, and social rights for women. I will not start getting into details about this, because I think that all of us has encountered at least one time in our life some type of discrimination based on gender.  In short, feminism = gender equality.

Every single time that I mentioned that I am a feminist, someone contradicted me and tried to change my vision about what feminism actually means. Sometimes even verbally assaulted that I even dare to think this way. I am not saying that you don’t have the right to express your opinion about a certain subject, but that doesn’t mean to catalogue somebody else just because they don’t have the same opinion as you.

“Feminism has fought no wars. It has killed no opponents. It has set up no concentration camps, starved no enemies, practiced no cruelties. Its battles have been for education, for the vote, for better working conditions, for safety on the streets, for child care, for social welfare, for rape crisis centers, women’s refuges, reforms in the law.”

– Dale Spender –

I guess that I am a feminist. At least, I like to think that way about myself. I do believe in equality. Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are, based on what somebody else thinks you should be?  Why do you have to label yourself something that society thinks it’s normal, but you don’t?  

These are just simply my toughts about the idea of being a feminist. I’m not saying that you need to have the same opinion, I just wanted to express my beliefs with you.

What’s your opinion? 🙂

Chocolate Apple Cupcakes


 cupcakes

Hello, guys 🙂

How are you ?  Hope you’re having a lovely evening! If not, let me  try to sweeten it up a little bit.

Yesterday I felt like I haven’t made cupcakes for a very long time and I was craving some sooo bad, so I chose to make some “fall” themed ones. These cupcakes are sooo delicious and they are also very easy to make. You only need a few ingredients that you may also already have in your kitchen. 

I personally love the taste of these, and I can not wait to try a lot more recipes in the near future. Please let me know how your cupcakes ended up 🙂

RECIPE

Composition

  • 150 gr. flour
  • 1 ltbs. baking powder
  • 150 gr. sugar
  • 100 gr. butter
  • 1 egg
  • 100 gr. milk chocolate/ bitter chocolate
  • 2 apples

 

Begin by mixing the butter with sugar until it becomes pasty and has a fluffy consistancy. Add the egg, mix the composition then gradually add flour and 1 ltbs of baking powder. Chop the apples with a grater, melt the chocolate by steaming it, add it to the composition and finally add the apples that you chopped earlier. Make sure you let the water from the chopped apples drain a little bit before you add them to the composition, otherwise it will ruin everything that you’ve made until this point. Preheat the oven at 180 while you put the composition on the paper forms. Finally, put the cupcakes in the oven and wait for about 15-25 minutes. 

Ornate

  • 100 gr. butter
  • 2 tbs. milk
  • 80 gr. milk chocolate/ bitter chocolate
  • 150 gr. caster sugar

 

Mix the butter with caster sugar until it is made homogeneous. After that add milk and the melted chocolate. After the cupcakes cooled down, ornate them with this composition and add more apples if you want. 

My result:

If you tried this recipe, feel free to send me pictures. I would love to see your cupcakes 🙂 !

I wish you a lovely week and I’ll see you next time !

Hello, Autumn !


971958a3a94d187271e882e6e59b6984

Hello, everybody 🙂

Tonight I felt quite inspired to write a new blog post since I haven’t done this for a very long time. 

Why? I don’t know. Tbh I just think that I have quite some problems with my motivation. But I promise that at least I will try this fall to keep you updated and post more. 

I don’t know about you, but I feel some type of way when autumn finally arrives. All the beautiful colours that surround yourself are so majestic and they make me feel some type of way.

What am I most excited about besides colder weather and beautiful landscapes, is that Halloween is around the corner 😀  I am very excited about this Halloween because I planned to film some Halloween tutorials for a long time, but also some fall inspired makeup tutorials and lookbooks. I hope you would like them as much as I do. 

If you want to see a specific Halloween makeup tutorial make sure to message me and I will, for sure, take your wishes into consideration 🙂

Thank you so much and I will see you soon with a new post.

Kim Kardshian Makeup | Cannes 2016


 

Hello, everyone! I’m happy to be finally back posting. Sorry that I’ve been missing for like 4 months or so but I had a period in my life when stress has taken over and I couldn’t manage to film any videos. But yeah, as I said, now I’m back and I hope that this summer I’ll post a lot more frequently.

Everyone knows that while Cannes is about the award-winning films being screened there, the real show is on the red carpet where A-list actors and models bring the drama in flowing gowns, millions worth of diamonds and innumerable up-dos. But up until now, there’s always been one crucial element missing at Cannes, and that’s Kim Kardashian West. But all of that’s about to change this year as the reality star is finally making her grand debut.

 

Her kohl-lined eyes were the show-stopping component of her look, paired with nude lips and bold, black brows. And of course, her contour was sharp enough to slice through the haters. She had a romantic, faded out wing that was edgy but beautiful. If you’re wondering who delivered this makeup masterpiece, it was none other than Mario Dedivanovic himself.

Now, this is my version of her makeup, it’s not like the exact look because she had more like matte eyeshadows on her lid but I spiced it up a bit and added a little bit of shimmer on my lids.

I really hope you enjoyed this video. If you did, please give it a big thumbs up and subscribe if you want to, and until next time I’ll se you guys later. Bye 🙂
