Pink Makeup Tutorial Using the BLUSHED NUDES Palette from Maybelline

July favorites (2)

 

As much as I love my Urban Decay Naked Palette, there comes a time when I want to experiment with colors and shades and create looks using something more exciting than the brown-y colors. I have thought a lot about purchasing the other Urban Decay Palettes, but wasn’t really sure whether I want to spend 60$ on a new one, when I know I am not going to fully use all the colors from either the Naked 2 or the Naked 3. Thankfully a lot of drugstore brands have given me the options and the variety I want without paying all that money and surprisingly the Maybelline palettes were really good value for the money.
So, I am not going to ramble a lot, when you can check the video down below and see for yourself how pigmented and nice the Blushed Palette is…

This is a short story, about a girl finding her perfect dress…

We all have different perceptions of our perfect dress, how it is supposed to look, to feel and hug your buddy. With my figure (I am quite short and not that curvy), I find it hard to find dresses that would not overwhelm me, but instead let me shine. I love my dresses to be very loose and light. I look for silk materials and clean lines. As much as I like my puffy skirts, there’s something so sexy in wearing a dress that drapes around your body and doesn’t hide your natural curves. These types of dresses allow you to move and dance and not worry about anything.

I have found my perfect dress, have you???

We live in this perfect little world, where we dress perfect, eat perfect and simply act perfect. We have all become just a mere reflection of that perfect world that had been drawn for all of us throughout the social media and the TV. Without even thinking or deciding on our own, we follow the rules, we try our best in fitting in, but why are we doing so? Why do we have to stick to a certain style and not do what we want. We all have different takes on life, so why not listen to yourself first and do exactly what you want.

Enjoy your life and be spontaneous ….

Nothing shows femininity more than Lace. This delicate material is the perfect combination of elegance and sex appeal that allows any woman to feel like she is on top of the world. For my second vintage inspired look ,this Maje dress is everything you want from a cocktail dress. It can be dressed up and down and would be the dress that could be worn for multiple occasions.

For as long as I can remember, I was fascinated by fashion and its evolution throughout the decades. I have always imagined myself living in the 50’s or the 60’s, wearing midi skirts and having over the top accessories and hair-dos. For me it was magic, the magic of dressing up and being someone more interesting and more fun. Although I do enjoy the crop tops and the boyfriend jeans I live in on an everyday basis, I do want that fun and pin up style that I saw in the pictures and in movies. Some people might think that by wearing vintage pieces or dressing similar to any of the previous decades, would make your style outdated, like you have just raided your great-great grandmother’s closet and stepped out for a night-out, but that’s not always the case. For me it is the inspiration behind those styles, it is the general feel of that decade and not just copying the style as it is. You should take something from that decade and make it modern and relevant to today’s fashion. You may think it is hard, and maybe you are right. But don’t you worry, I am bringing you a fun series in collaboration with Washed and Found to show you how easy it is to style a Vintage inspired look.

For the first look, we decided to opt for a Sailor pin-up style with the typical combination of the Stripes, Red and Blue, and pair them with some gorgeous vintage high heels. What we wanted to show here is the importance of adding modern and stylish pieces to the vintage ones to obtain the balance for the perfect look.

All the pieces I am wearing for this look are pre-owned pieces from luxury brands, and could be found on the Washed and Found’s website. Some of you might not be comfortable with buying or wearing pre-owned pieces, simply because it is still a new thing and we are not always certain of the sources and the credibility of the stores. But here is where Washed and Found is different than any other store in Lebanon, they take their job very seriously and make sure that you don’t worry about anything regarding, the authenticity, the quality and the price-tag. Washed and Found is the first online store for second-hand luxury brands in Lebanon and the only one with a website. They sell a variety of items and brands (around 200 brands) and have a very low tolerance for items in bad conditions. All the items shown on the website  are 100% authentic and they make sure that each and every item passes all the stages of authentication. If you are a person who have been wanting to invest in a certain luxury brand, Washed and found could be your destination, because they cater for all styles.

So, stay tuned for a lot more coming this week.
