I know I probably say this every month, but damn, where the hell this month went? But it was a good month and I finally tried some new products, and today I´ll show you the ones that were well worn.
1- Silky Touch Blush in "Adorable": I already dedicated a post on this blush and why I love it, you can read it here. Let me just say one thing: you need it in your life.
2- Lancôme Hydra Zen Masque: another season is coming and my skin tends to become drier and drier, so this mask came just at the right time. Before going to bed and after cleaning my face, I put it and when I wake up my skin feels rested, healthy and especially hydrated.
3- Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in"Golden Lights": I already bought this highlighter some time ago but I started to give him real wear only this month. Now I am in love with golden highlighters on my skin and this one is perfect.
4- Kiko Luxurious Lashes Maxi Brush Mascara: I was looking for a mascara that actually added volume to my lashes (because fortunately I have plenty of length) and this one fills my needs, despite having to be applied carefully.
5- Primark eyelash curler: since I started using this tool I noticed a huge difference in my eyes. And for only 2 euros!
Tell me, do you have any favorite beauty product that you have discovered this month?
Eu sei que provavelmente digo isto todos os meses, mas caramba, este realmente voou! Mas foi um bom mês e finalmente experimentei produtos novos, sendo os que vos mostro hoje os que usei e abusei.
1- Silky Touch Blush em “Adorable”: já dediquei uma publicação sobre este blush e o porquê de estar rendida a ele, pode ver aqui. Apenas digo que precisam dele na vossa vida.
2- Lancôme Hydra Zen Masque: com a vinda de um tempo menos agradável, a minha pele tem tendência a ficar mais seca, por isso, esta máscara veio mesmo em boa hora. Antes de me ir deitar e após limpar a minha cara, coloco-a e acordo com uma pele mais descansada, saudável e sobretudo hidratada.
3- Makeup Revolution Vivid BakedHighlighter em “Golden Lights”: já comprei este iluminar há algum tempo mas só neste mês é que comecei a dar-lhe verdadeiro uso. Agora ando apaixonada por iluminadores dourados na minha pele e este é perfeito.
4- Kiko Luxurious Lashes MaxiBrush Mascara: Andava à procura de uma máscara que realmente desse volume às minhas pestanas (porque comprimento felizmente já tenho que chegue) e esta enche-me as medidas, apesar de ter de ser aplicada com cuidado.
5- Enrolador de pestanas da Primark: desde que comecei a usar este utensílio que notei uma diferença enorme no meu olhar. E penso que nem 2 euros me custou!
Digam-me, têm algum produto de beleza favorito que tenho descoberto este mês?
I´ve always liked to see a good red lipstick on the lips. So mysterious and seductive. A powerful weapon. But the truth is that I abandoned completely red lips a few years ago. Perhaps because I had begun to think it was about time to be more mature and therefore had to use nude lipsticks or perhaps by giving a lot of work applying it. For a while, I banished this shade. But recently I decided to bring it back to my life, and I could not be happier. Lately I've been taking risks not only in clothing but also in my beauty routine and never felt happier to be doing finally something for me.
I never liked to mix patterns (or even use patterns at all) or wear different textures but when I accidentally put this jacket side to side with the skirt, I thought it was the right time to take a risk. It seems that fashion weeks are giving me major inspiration, so if I can get out of my comfort zone, you can do it too!
The summer days, at least in here, are over, but it is still warm enough to wear skirts/dresses without socks. So I am enjoying it while I can.
Do you want to know a funny story? I wore this skirt for the very first time on the day I took these pictures and so it still had the price tag. But the best part: I leave the house all day with the price tag hung on the skirt. Attractive, right?
Give it some love.
I´ve decided to add a new topic here, where I'll talk about products that I love and simply do not get the love they should have. And there is no better product to start than the Silky Touch Blush from Essence in the color “Adorable”. Essence is not a cosmetic brand that is mentioned by beauty gurus a lot of times. The truth is that it is an affordable brand, in Portugal the most expensive product is about 8/9 euros and they have really good quality. I buy from this brand for many years and were rare the products that did not work for me. I recently tried this blush and since that I did not wear anything else on my cheekbones. Besides the color being absolutely wonderful for my skin tone and especially to a daily basis, the quality of the product itself is fantastic, pigmented and easy to blend and brings a wonderful brightness to my face. I prefer this one to my Chanel blush, and that must mean something, right?
I'm not a well of wisdom but today I will share with you something I´ve learned about life and me: the pleasure that freedom can give us.
I am not going to talk about financial freedom, or leave the parents' house, or anything like that. I will tell you about the mental freedom that I have been enjoying. For me, there is nothing in this life more important than my own happiness. Of course this means some sacrifices and decisions that probably most people do not understand. And I am aware that lately I've made decisions that most people didn´t understand, but I made them for my own good, my happiness. Nothing compares to the control I now have in my life and the happiness it brings to me. I excluded everything that was negative and started to focus only on positive aspects of my life, and let me tell you the reward is amazing!
Well, it´s been forever since I shown you a pair of heels. And don´t be sad, I didn´t banish them from my life (for now).
Today I bring you an outfit that I wore two weeks ago and I was completely obsessed. It's perfect for a lunch/dinner with friends, a date, take of the hat and wear your hair down and it becomes an outfit for a night out with friends. A versatile outfit just how I like it. But what I love the most is the mixture of different styles. A dress with a boho vibe mixed with some stylish heels and an oversized blazer. This is one of my favorite looks and shows that I'm lately focusing on diversity.
