SPORTY SPRING VIBES WITH ECCO GOLF

Hello hello and welcome back!

Spring has finally arrived in Estonia. How much we've missed you!

Spring is all about bright and pastel colors, so let me show you one of my favorite items for spring that I totally adore.

These greyish-beige with bright pink sole edge and laces from ECCO are actually golf shoes, so I borrowed all the equipment for golf and pretended that I am a golf player... well that was fun!




 

But as I have never played golf and maybe will never play again, I love to style these shoes with my pastel knee-length skirt, light beige thin sweater with collar, dark blue scarf, red coat and of course RED LIPSTICK to match my coat :)


The sole is super comfortable, however the cashier told that they would be uncomfortable to walk on the hard ground. But for me the sole is amazing.




Please take a moment and see how amazing they are!

TIP: HOW I MAKE MY LIPS LOOK FULLER

Good evening my beauties!
Today I am back with another beauty blog post about my lips. I really want to share with you my tip how I make my lips look fuller. So if you try this out, please let me know if it worked on you! :)



I've always liked big and full lips, but it was so hard to find the right way that would perfectly go with my lips. I've tried "Fullips" lip enhancer thing, DIY scrubs with cinnamon and peppermint extract, which recipes are all over the internet right now. But none of these worked for me. "Fullips" lip enhancers effect lasted about 10-15 minutes (I've always wondered how does it stay on for others for so long?). The DIY scrub didn't give any effect, just made my lips irritated and red. So I gave up!

One day, when I was getting ready to go to the city, I applied my favorite liquid lipstick and something went wrong in my cupid's bow area. And I tried to correct it, so as a result I overlined JUST this area and it looked amazing!!! After that, it became my favorite way of making my lips look fuller.

Now I will tell (and show a bit) how I achieve the full lip effect with only a liquid lipstick.

So first of all, I make sure that my LIPS ARE SOFT and WITHOUT DRY PATCHES! For that I make oil and a bit of sugar, mix it together and gently scrub my lips with it. Or if I am too lazy to make the scrub I take my toothbrush and lightly "brush my lips" with it.

When the dry patches are eliminated from my lips, I use EVELINE lip moisturizer which contains Argan Oil, to make my lips smooth and soft.


As you can see I have a pretty sharp upper lip, so when I apply lipstick by the shape of my lips, they look a bit small, so I prefer to overline THIS part.

 

Next I take the lipstick I am in the mood for wearing and start applying it. 


Before ovelining I fill in all of the lips and shape them by my lip shape. When my lips are filled in I overline the area that is shown in the picture nr 3.

As I love matte finish, I press a piece of  tissue against the lips to take off the unnecessary amount of lipstick. 
Aaand voila, my lips look slightly fuller. :)


I really hope this blog post was helpful,and if you try it out I would really like to hear how it worked for you!

HOW I GET PERFECT TAN WITH VITA LIBERATA SELF TANNING MOUSSE

Hello and welcome back!



In this post I want to tell you about my way of achieving perfect tan.

First things first, WHY I decided to use fake tan mousse instead of visiting a solarium?

Let's start from the beginning. Almost every spring I used to visit a solarium, just to get a light tan before summer. I thought that everything is okay, but suddenly my skin became very rough and super dry. So I thought it's the right time to visit my dermatologist.
What we found out was that my skin's protective layer is extremely thin due to UV rays.
I was shocked by the result and after that I changed my mind towards self tanning. And now I am a happy owner of Vita Liberata Self Tanning Tinted Mousse in Dark shade.





So it's time to talk about WHAT I do and HOW I apply self tanner on my body.

1. EXFOLIATE

The key to perfect tan is exfoliating the body first!
For that I am using exfoliating glove and my favorite shower gel that smells gorgeous.
While exfoliating I always concentrate on elbows and knees, so they don't look extremely darker next to the rest of the body.





After exfoliating I rinse all the shower gel off and then...


2. SHAVE

Make sure you make legs super smooth by shaving them properly. It allows you to be spotless after tanning

3. TAN

First I gently shake the bottle and put the tan applicator glove on. Then apply 2 pumps for one leg and 2 for the other one. For stomach I need only one pump and for hands as well. Thanks to the tint I can see where I apply the mousse. 


I move the glove in circular motions to get on every part of the skin.
After applying the mousse all over my body, I let it dry before putting my clothes on.

It takes around 4-8 hours until the mousse is completely set, but I wash it off after 6 hours from the moment I applied it.

Here you can see the difference between skin tone before and after applying the mousse, and after the mousse has set in.




For those of you, who love to be tanned and whose skin in sensitive, I highly recommend using tanning mousses and creams instead of solarium!

HOW DO I WEAR MY NEW ECCO COOL 2.0 KICKS



Here I am... sitting in front of my computer and thinking where to start, because I am speechless. The words are stuck in my mouth and just don't want to come out after seeing and FEELING a new pair of ECCO COOL 2.0 kicks.




I am immensely delighted to have one pair of these in my shoedrobe. The protection they give me, when I walk through a puddle or "tumble" in the snow like the happiest child in the World, keeps me warm and dry.




I have worn these kicks with absolutely everything. With classy trousers with a classy jacket - perfect! With sweatpants with an oversized hoodie - excellent! With an elegant black pencil skirt with a thick-textured shirt - posh!
But this time, I went for something playful yet cute to bring a little bit of color in this dreary, grey and rainy day!



Aaand I made a short video, but I have to say I am not a professional, haha. You don't want to know how many different places I edited this video in, sooo that is why the quality is not the best. So don't judge 😄 And sorry for the shaking hands!!!!
PS. This video was made just to show off my new kicks!

PINK-VELVET x MYVERTIGE



I am a lover of big and massive purses, where I can fit all of my stuff from credit cards to bills (yes, I collect bills, haha). But the struggle begins, when I try to fit the purse into my tiny handbag. I am more than 100% sure that most of you have experienced that.

But now, let me introduce you this luxurious pink-violet leather cardholder from MyVertige. When I popped into it, I breathed out with a relief. MY BIG PURSE PROBLEM WAS SOLVED! I couldn't be more happier about it.

The cardholder looks so fabulous and elegant. It is made from the best leathers from one of the finest tanneries in Europe. The color I chose matches my dark purple bag perfectly! It fits absolutely everywhere: tiny handbag, jacket or pants pockets, and it's capacity is unbelievable. It has only three sections, but it can fit much more than three cards. Isn't that thing amazing?

So here is my advice to all of you, who are struggling with the same problem as I did... stop assaulting your tiny bag with your huge purse that doesn't want to fit in. Better get yourself a fancy cardholder in your favorite color, and live without any struggle!

MY TOP 5 BEAUTY ESSENTIALS

I haven't abandoned you, I promise.. I just didn't have time to open my laptop. I took a week off due to school and lack of energy. I have a ton of content to go up so stay tuned to the weeks ahead!

Everyday my love to beauty increases. Every day I learn, discover and experiment something new in the beauty world. But it's always so hard to find something, that really intrigues me and stays with me for a very long time. 

My skincare and makeup routines have simplified due to very sensitive skin. If I apply something, that is not suitable for my skin (from face cleanser to setting powder), I get a lot of pimples and red spots all over my face immediately. That's why I cut out a lot of beauty and makeup products I used before. 

Anyways, in this post I wanted to share my top 5 beauty essentials, that I and my face (and hands) can't live without.

Before you start... I made this post in a collaboration with an amazing fashion and beauty blogger from London, Agija Vizule. Check her blog post HERE!


 


This was love from the first sight! Before this moisturizer I've tried out so many, but I couldn't find the right one for my face. Believe me or not, this small canister can last forever because the amount of cream you need to use for face is extremely small. That's amazing, isn't it?

As I have combination skin type, T-zone is always oily and the remaining areas of the face are awfully dry, I am using Regenerate Me face cream (they have creams for every skin type!). Due to its bioactive complex with rose hip, it helps reduce scarring and promote skin regeneration. That's what I needed, as my face is full of pimple scars.

I use it twice a day, in the morning and in the evening after washing my face. 








NYX Lingerie Honeymoon Liquid Lipstick has become one of my favorites by cause of leaving my dark brown Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in India. I wanted something similar to that, so I chose NYX liquid lipstick in Honeymoon color. I love the texture of it and that it stays on very long. The applicator is very comfortable and it's easy to apply.



Ahh, Guerlain mascara! The best mascara I've ever used. Not very dry nor wet. That's just what my lashes need. I have super straight lashes and the only things that help me make them look beautiful are lash curlers and NON WET mascara. All mascaras that I've used before were too wet or the opposite - too dry. But Guerlain Cils D'enfer volume creating and curl sculpting mascara is just right one. So if you have the same problem as me with lashes, I highly recommend you this one! 🠷





The highlighting trend has been poppin for a minute now, so I decided to get one for myself as well. This Faces Ultime Pro Illuminating Powder I bought from India. They have that big beauty store in a big shopping mall, where you can get anything you need. As I ran out of money that time, I had to look for the cheapest one. So I found this... and decided to test it out. But woah, I didn't expect it to be that pigmented and long lasting! I use it almost every time i wear makeup. I got too used to it, so I can't go out without the highlighter on my face.





This body cream was my first beauty purchase from Victoria's Secret. This is a winter must-have body lotion. Its texture is very oily and thick so it can protect skin from cold very well.
