Deborah Perfect Smokey Eye Palette

I’ve been so busy for the past week, I didn’t have time to do any creative looks (I didn’t even feel like wearing makeup most days to be honest). Seriously, how do people with full time jobs manage to put out new blog content so regularly? 

I had a 25% off coupon for a local drugstore, so I decided to browse the shelves a bit. I didn’t really need anything – well, at least not until I saw this enchanting palette on the Deborah stand.

Picking Peonies

Not that you could tell what my hair was like before as I always wore wigs, but today’s post is inspired by my new hair colour. Here’s the story: about a month ago I went to the hairdresser’s after 10 years because I needed a bigger change in life and naturally, my hair was the first to volunteer. I wanted to be a blonde to get a break from the medium brown I’d had for over a year. BUT … It didn’t work. It should have been an easy job since I even stopped dyeing it about six months ago. I have no idea what happened, but the hairdresser really messed up. We’d talked about doing a balayage with a seamless transition from a dark blonde at the roots to lighter ends, but the end result was just … Let’s just say I could have done a better job myself with my eyes closed.
I couldn’t stand looking at it anymore, so last week I threw on a bright magenta as a temporary solution. It bleeds everywhere so I’m still not entirely happy *sigh* but I do love the actual colour. I thought it would be a fun idea to emphasize it with matching makeup using red and pink eyeshadow – something I never wore before, but today I’ve definitely realized I need to use more often.

The Three Wine Fairies (Collaboration with Taya – My Little Beauty World and Adjusting Beauty)

Today’s post is a collaboration with two creative bloggers, Tatjana from Taya – My Little Beauty World and Petra from Adjusting Beauty. Like many other European countries, Slovenia is celebrating St. Martin’s Day, the day must turns to wine. We decided to take this tradition and turn it into makeup looks, transforming ourselves into three magical wine fairies.

Faking Perfect Skin

I was doing my makeup and casually taking some photos of the process for my personal reference. But as I was browsing through them on the computer, they inspired me to turn them into something for the blog. It’s something a bit different, maybe a bit personal even, that I felt like sharing.

I fully admit my skin is far from perfect. In fact, it’s very problematic – I’ve been suffering with face and body acne, and extremely oily skin since I was 10. Yes, suffering, because at 28, that means I’ve been dealing with it for 18 years. Apart from the fact that it often literally hurts, it also gets frustrating when you can’t fix it with a simple cream, and when all your peers have long outgrown that stage (or never been affected in the first place).

I know many people have a hard time believing me when I mention it, because it rarely shows when I’m out and about – but that’s the power of makeup. For those of us who have not been blessed with perfect genes (more like cursed with the bad ones), we can still fake it.

Pink Party Dress

I went shopping in Austria last week, mainly to look for a new sofa in IKEA, but naturally I ended up in a shopping centre after that. I didn’t find the right sofa, but I did come back with a few great future holiday inspired beauty products. As I can’t wait for Christmas season (not even ashamed), I had to try out the sparkliest one from the haul right away – the Maybelline Color Show nail polish in “Pink Party Dress”.
