Mother earth

Life some times surprises you and when you think that everything is well planed, you can loose track of things and end up not keeping your promises! That one goes to me that have lost touch with my so loved blog and my so loved followers. I will try to make it up to you this weekend with the posts that I am preparing.

This post is a special request from one of the readers and she asked me to write about natural products that I love.

KORRES

One of my favourite natural product brands is KORRES I have been using their products for a while and especially when I was living in Greece. All the products are natural and are produced by natural ingredients from the Greek flora.

I particularly love these very natural lipsticks from cherry oil – I find them very fresh and light based with a beautiful cherry smell. I keep mine in my bag every day and re apply it through out the day

VOYA

Another natural company that I have recently found out about with lovely natural products is the Irish company called VOYA. The main ingredient of the products is the Irish seaweed and the the company is mainly focusing on spa, body and face products. I would love to try their exfoliating body brush and also their cellulite massager – summer is almost here and in order to have a beach body we have to make sure that we look after it.

APIVITA

APIVITA is another Greek company which has been around for many years offering the best of Greek nature. The company offers mainly spa, and face cream products and can accommodate all skin types. Below you see a lovely body scrub that you can find as I am very inspired by summer you should all know that a golden and even tan is gained only if you have scrubbed your body with an oil based scrub preparing it for the sun exposure.

Enjoy pampering using the best of mother nature!

bride to be

One of my favourite brides of all times. Have a look of how she shined at her wedding day.

Being yourself on your wedding day and not going over the top is one of the tips that I always give to the brides that I work with. On this day you have to feel comfortable and beautiful. If you don’t wear make up on your every day life go for a natural look like our bride today, don’t put pressure on yourself on what others will say. Trust your feeling and enjoy this day.

…for your eyes only

My readers have recently been very proactive asking me a lot of interesting questions about make up, tools, techniques which is making me extremely happy. You know that is always my pleasure to answer them so please feel free to ask either on my facebook page or here on the blog.

This time the question was about eye shadows creasing. How do we make the eyeshadow last longer and how do we prevent the eye shadow to crease?? All these will be answered below.

I have a few good tips on this one so get ready.

The factors that lead to having the creasing result can vary – starting from the quality of the eye shadow, the skin texture, the weather and even the climate. So don’t blame your skin as you would usually do.

So what can we do to prevent this from happening. Many of you make up geeks would say primer, and this answer is correct! I have to say though that the eye primer is different to the one used for the face. The one we use for the whole face can be a bit heavy and rich for the sensitive and thin skin of the eyes.

Low cost solutions (from your make up bag)

1.Using your own make up could be a low cost solution as you wouldn’t have to spend on buying new products

2. Replacing your creamy eye shadows with powder based eye shadows

3. Using concealer on your eyelid and then applying your eye shadow

The above solutions I would say that are more traditional and would definitely not cost you much. However if you are really looking for a product that would solve this for ever get your pen and paper and take notes.

1. Inglot Eye make up base

Using an eye make up base will definitely prevent your eyeshadow to crease and I have to say that the make up base from Inglot it is a very good one to use. I have used it and I was very pleased with it.

2. Lemon aid – Benefit

Benefit has a very beautiful eye base primer which I would highly recommend as it prepares the skin for your eye shadow.

When you use them please let me know how you got on.

Don’t forget I am always here to answer your questions.

till the next post
