Natural sun kissed look

As far as my summer / tanned look lasts, and the calendar is still on September, I will try my best to stretch this summer feeling, although the temperature has dropped dramatically today!

Contrasting to the grey skies that have not decided to change colour yet, a natural sun kissed summer look is the perfect way for your first autumn make up looks, keeping the summer glow till it fades away. BeFunky_DSC_0046.jpgHow did I achieved this? Easy, using the water based foundation by MAC Face and Body, No 7 Compact Dual Bronzer, and a light pink blusher along with a light pink lipstick from Korres (Natural pink).BeFunky_DSC_0048.png

{Water based foundation and dual bronzer is the secret to your sun kissed look

Sun kissed look

For the eyes I used a matte light purple eye shadow by max factor and black mascara, don’t be restrained in the eye shadow colour, try something close to your skin tone or to a beige tanned tone, keeping it always fresh.

I decided not to fill my eyebrows as I wanted to achieve a very natural look, if you feel that you want to emphasize your eyes more then do go ahead with filling your eyebrows.

If you have any questions feel free to ask, I am always happy to answer!

Beauty is in the eyes

Following my recent quest to good valuable and effective beauty products, I spend a few hours this weekend in researching and searching for a nice natural and effective anti – aging eye cream.

And my winner is Rituals a natural brand with “….a passion to transform everyday routines into magnificent rituals” as their brand proposition.

I decided to go for their natural Line Defense eye lotion, I have used it for a couple of days now at night time and immediately it gives you a very fresh sensation, that can be very refreshing after a long day. I also liked its light and fluid texture (lotion) it is not as rich (thick) as the strong anti aging eye creams.

I know that I am hitting that decade where one should be more aware of these signs (lines) but this nice eye lotion doesn’t make me feel that old! Price wise, it is always in my range, as I say not to flashy not too cheap, and at the price of 24 Euros it seems ok for what it does. I would therefore recommended.

I would love to here if you have used this eye lotion before and what you thought of it.

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.

Dare to “bare”

The bare look can  be a great success especially when the face that wears it has a good structure and is absolutely beautiful!

Natural look is one of my favourite looks, because it makes you look years younger and very fresh! If you dare to go with very little make up then it means that you are very confident of your looks and that you know how to cover up but being “nude” at the same time!

After all this is the look that many Hollywood actresses have worn over the years in the red carpet. Demi Moore looks fantastic with this make up look.

Natalie Portman below wears the same natural look with the only differences that she has emphasized the lips with a pink-red lipstick.

My model below looks fabulous with this natural look. She looks amazing and with these beautiful eyes she does not need much make up to look absolutely fab!

The secret to achieving this look is to use a good cover up foundation if your skin is not as clear and a good cover up concealer to cover the fatigue. The eye – shadows that I used have a bit of shimmer adding glow and giving a glamorous and fresh look. The cheeks and lips are very subtle and of pinky shades. The products I used for this make up are Max factor foundation 102, Mac concealer NC20, Body Shop eye – shadows: All over shimmer cubes the warm palette, and channel 080 blusher, for the lips I just used a light pink lipstick from max factor.

Another example of the dare to “bare” look is below. As you can see adding a bit of shimmer to your eye-shadow or bronzer can change the natural look from an morning to an evening look.
