BEAUTY BALMS

10 Oct

BB CREAM SEEMS TO BE  THE TRENDIEST MULTI-FUNCTIONAL COSMETIC PRODUCT  AT THE MOMENT…IT HAS MANY `NICKNAMES`; BLEMISH BALM, BEAUTY BLEMISH BALM, BLEMISH BASE, BEBLESH BALM, BEAUTY BALM….

WHAT IS IT?

WIKIPEDIA;

“BB CREAM IS PROMOTED AS ALL-IN -ONE FACIAL COSMETIC PRODUCT TO REPLACE SERUM, MOISTURIZER, PRIMER, FOUNDATION AND SUNBLOCK. IT CAN BE WORN ALONE AS A TINTED MOISTURIZER, OVER SERUM AND MOISTURIZER AS A REGULAR FOUNDATION, AND UNDER  POWDER, DEPENDING ON THE DESIRED AMOUNT OF COVERAGE”. 

MY OWN EXPERIENCE AND THOUGHTS;

LOVELY  PRODUCT THAT COMBINES MAKEUP, MOISTURIZING AND PROTECTIVE POWERS OF A SKINCARE PRODUCT WITH THE COMPLEXION-PERFECTING AND SKIN-EVENING PROPERTIES OF A FOUNDATION.  A PERFECT OPTION FOR LAZY-LADIES, BUSY MAMAS WITH NO TIME FOR THEMSELVES, TINTED DAY CREAM LOVERS AND  NATURAL-LOOK SEEKERS. IT PROTECTS YOUR SKIN FROM  THE SUN DAMAGE AND OTHER ENVIRONMENTAL STRESS FACTORS. IF YOU HAVE CHOSEN THE RIGHT BB-PRODUCT FOR YOU,YOUR SKIN SHOULD LOOK AND FEEL MORE RADIANT AND FLAWLESS.

I HAVE FOUND ONE COMMON PROBLEM IN ALMOST EVERY BB CREAM I HAVE TESTED… MOST OF THE COSMETIC BRANDS HAVE ONLY ONE SHADE AVAILABLE AND THE SHADES ARE USUALLY VERY FAIR AND MOSTLY GRAY TONED. SO BE AWARE THAT IN SOME CASES TOO FAIR AND GRAY TONED BB CREAM CAN EASILY TURN YOUR FACE MORE TIRED, DULL AND DEAD-LOOKING RATHER THAN FRESH AND RADIANT. I GUESS IT´S BECAUSE BB CREAM IS AN ASIAN INNOVATION WHERE THE  IDEAL OF BEAUTY IS TO HAVE SUPER-WHITE SKIN. THIS PROBLEM CAN BE PARTLY SOLVED BY MIXING FAIR BB CREAMS WITH DARKER SHADE FOUNDATIONS .

MY FAVOURITES ARE HERE:

DIOR HYDRA LIFE BB CREME SPF 30

I LOVE THE VELVETY GLOWING FEELING  AND END RESULT OF IT.THERE IS ONLY ONE SHADE AVAILABLE, NOT THE FAIREST ONE COMPARED TO PRODUCTS OF THE OTHER BRANDS , WHICH IS GOOD NEWS. I MIX IT TOGETHER WITH DARKER SHADE FOUNDATION, BUT IF THE SKIN TONE IS FAIR ENOUGH IT WORKS PERFECTLY AS WORN ALONE. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO DRY AND NORMAL SKIN TYPES, RATHER THAN OILY OR MIXED SKIN. THE PRICE IS ABOUT 65 EUROS.

BOBBI BROWN BB CREAM SPF 35

THIS IS A WONDERFUL PRODUCT SINCE IT´S AVAILABLE IN 5 DIFFERENT SHADES AND LEAVES MORE MATTE END RESULT. I FOUND A PERFECT TONE EVEN FOR MY ALWAYS TANNED LOOKING AND  LIVER SPOT COVERED FACE. THIS PRODUCT IS SUITABLE  FOR ALL THE SKIN TYPES FROM DRY TO OILY SKIN. THE PRICE IS ABOUT 35 EUROS.

PERKY PONYTAIL

7 Aug

I AM FINALLY BACK FROM MY SUMMER HOLIDAYS AND CONTINUE TO MAKE YOUR, MY DEAR READERS WISHES TRUE….

MANY OF YOU HAVE BEEN ASKING ME `HOW DO I GET MY PONYTAIL LOOK SO FLUFFY AND BEAUTIFULLY PERKY?`

WELL, HERE COMES THE ANSWER…

WHAT I HAVE:

MY HAIR IS QUITE THICK, NATURALLY BOTH CURLY AND WAVY, DEPENDING OF THE HUMIDITY IN THE AIR.  THE HAIRCUT HAS BEEN DONE SO, THAT THE TOP LAYER OF MY HAIR IS LAYERED SHORTER THAN  THE OTHER HALF OF MY HAIR.

WHAT I DO:

AFTER WASHING I BLOWDRY MY HAIR,  MAKE A TIGHT PONYTAIL AND TWIST THE TAIL ONCE MORE TROUGH THE HAIRBAND AND LEAVE IT ON THE HALF WAY TO MAKE `A LOOP`. I LEAVE MY HAIR LIKE THAT OVER THE NIGHT AND IN THE MORNING I HAVE MY FAVOURITE HAIRDO READY, SPORTY AND PERKY PONYTAIL.

IF YOU HAVE NATURALLY THIN AND VERY STRAIGHT HAIR, YOU MIGHT NEED SOMETHING MORE TO ACHIEVE THIS END RESULT. I RECOMMEND APPLYING STYLING PRODUCT, FOR EXAMPLE STYLING MOUSSE FOR WET OR DRY HAIR BEFORE DOING THE `PONYTAIL WITH A LOOP`. IF YOU NEED SOME EXTRA FLUFFYNESS FOR THE PONYTAIL  IN THE MORNING, YOU SHOULD APPLY SOME DRY SHAMPOO AND HAIRSPRAY WITH SHINE TO THE TAIL PART OF IT.

IF MY EXPLANATIONS WERE CONFUSING, HERE ARE SOME PICTURES THAT MIGHT HELP YOU TO UNDERSTAND WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT….
