Holiday Glow! Filmstar Bronze & Glow by Charlotte Tilbury

What is it?
A powder sculpting and highlighting palette.

What does it do?

The sculpting side is great for contouring while the highlighting part is great for highlighting the face and even the eyes.

The packaging.

Charlotte Tilbury’s packaging is my cup of tea. There’s not one product that I didn’t love the packaging. It looks luxurious due to its beautiful gold color and also rocks a huge mirror!

The formula.

Both sides are extremely blendable. It is not intense but you can definitely build it up. It gives a really natural contour and highlight. Also the particular combination is perfect for fair skin. If you have trouble finding a contour palette for fair skin you should definitely check this one out! (I also like using the highlight for setting cream highlighters. It’s so natural it doesn’t look cakey)

Would I recommend it?

Yes! For someone who wants a natural highlight and contour or has a fair skin.

Do you prefer a natural or a bright highlight? Let me know in the comments below!

Mailing Brands? 3 Key-points to include.

Mailing brands for possible collaborations is hard enough. Including this key points will not only make it easier but also more possible for you and other bloggers to land the best partnerships!

  • Straight to the point subject.

Companies receive an enormous amount of mails every single day. From complaints to propositions for collaborations. Having a straight to the point subject such as “Interest In Collaboration” will help the person who comes across your mail to not only know what to expect but also send it to the right department.

  • Mention how much you like the brand.

Okay do not write ten pages showing your immense love for the brand but maybe in one sentence say that you think the particular brand is great. A bit of flattery never hurt anyone.

  • Credit Bloggers

When mailing brands it is a good idea to mention that you came across this brand thanks to a fellow blogger. This is important because you show the brand that working with bloggers gets them recognition. So by saying a blogger is the reason you found out about the brand you help yourself as well as other bloggers.

Do you guys have any key points you always include when mailing brands? Let me know in the comments below.

Pandora Bracelet Setup

Okay I am not big on jewelry but I have found a new hobby. Designing my Pandora bracelet! Okay I know it’s not really a hobby and it is kind of expensive but I find it really relaxing at the end of the day opening up Pandora’s latest catalog and making plans about how my bracelet is going to turn out. So I thought I would share with you it’s current state and I will be adding to the post as I go!

Centerpiece: Hearts Dangle Charm

This is the only dangle charm I will be including on my bracelet so that I can keep it as a centerpiece.

This infinity charm is so beautiful and sweet and is also on the cheap side of the charms. I would love to add another rose gold round charm to maintain a symmetry.

Pro Tip: The silver bangles (and charms) are cheaper. By getting a silver base and adding rose gold accents you can create a key piece of jewelry that you can use as a medium to pair other silver and rose gold jewelry. And it’s cheaper than getting a completely rose gold bracelet and charms.

Do you own a Pandora Bracelet? Let me know in the comments below!

Five models that are not afraid to be different!   

For a lot of years fashion had a pretty specific type that was considered “pretty”. Unfortunately that type was far from reality. Discrimination and false idea of beauty is still a huge problem for the fashion industry but we have taken huge steps to the right direction. So here are my five  favorite models!

  1. Iskra Lawrence   A stunning blonde that is not afraid to be goofy and kick the haters in the butt! Plus totally Instagram goals!
  2. Winnie Harlow   A gorgeous 21 year old that showed us beauty is everywhere. Even in a chronic skin condition!
  3. Rebekah Marine  A beautiful badass that needs to star in a sci-fi film ASAP! Can someone make it happen?
  4. Madeline Stuart   The cutest nineteen year old that puts the rest of us nineteen year olds to shame! ( Can sitting on my laptop be considered changing the world? No? Ok…)
  5. Philomena Kwao   Another stunning woman showing us that all sizes and colors are beautiful in their own unique way!

Who is the model that you look up to? Let me know in the comments below!

The perfect Christmas outfit

Since the 1st of December hit the calendar an abundance of Christmassy/festive season posts came streaming in and it’s still going of course. Some get excited like a little kid in a candy shop, while others try to avoid these joyous posts about this festive season, but let’s just say I am part of the group of people that jump up and down, because for me, this is the best time of the year.

We all want to look great on Christmas day, right? Whether it be glam or just comfy, Christmas just is one of those days where you put a little more effort into putting an outfit together. And if you’re looking for some inspo, I got you covered 🙂

Classic & Sophisticated

If you’re going to some fancy Christmas dinner, this outfit will surely be perfect for such an occasion.

Pairing this white tulle skirt with the dark red wine coloured long sleeve cropped velvet top (what a mouthful) – GORGEOUS! I think it would look even more gorgeous if the top has an open back. You can go a little shorter with the tulle skirt, but I think the knee length adds to the classiness.

These black chunky heels with a strap and slightly pointed toe along with the silver teardrop earrings would compliment the skirt and top and definitely adds to the elegant factor.

Of course the outfit would not be complete without a gorgeous golden smokey eye and dark lip look and a sleek high bun – this really ties the whole look together.

This whole look screams sophistication!

Cute & Quirky

If you’re looking for something that’s a bit more chill, but can still classify as a night or day out outfit, then you should definitely have a look at this one. I think this might be my favourite one.

So you guys have probably figured out by now that I love dark reddish kinda colours and I mean they are also Christmassy colours. For the bottoms of this look you can either choose between this burgundy velvet skirt with black buttons or the dark red skirt to go with this ivory/off white cropped sweater and black tights – plain or polka dots!

For the accessories you gotta have this black tie up choker (I don’t really know what it’s called?) and these amazing ankle boots that I wish would just magically appear in my closet. (hopefully Santa sees this haha)

Of course you can mix and match with different chokers or any accessories for that matter. It’s called quirky after all, right?

We’ll finish off the look with a subtle smokey eye and the perfect nude coloured lip – you can do a dark lip with this outfit too! And gorgeous soft, but messy, wavy hair.

This is definitely my favourite look, it is so up my street.

Comfy & Casual

Most of us want to look stylish this time of year, but still feel comfy. This next outfit does both and it’s definitely the easiest to put together!

I wouldn’t mind owning both of these sweaters, but some people prefer not to wear the cliché Christmas sweater, so they might lean towards a different sweater like this off white one with mini pom poms – so cute and it’s still kinda festive! And it’s so easy to pair with black skinny jeans (or any jeans of your choice) or even some black leggings. The goal is to be as comfy as possible, but still look stylish.

Throw in some combat boots with long comfy socks and this adorable beanie and you’ve got yourself a pretty awesome outfit!

For makeup you can do a very subtle and natural look or you don’t have to wear any makeup, it’s totally up to you. I think this subtle glowy makeup look will be perfect and some boxer braids will be great with that beanie!

♥ ♥ ♥

I’m really into all three of these outfits – they’re so Christmassy and they’re also really easy to mix and match and pair with other colours or accessories – go ahead and be creative and do your own thing with it.

I got these ideas from Pinterest, of course, cause Pinterest is the best place to go to for inspiration and ideas.

Thanks for reading! Tell me what’s your favourite look out of these three?

What’s in my summer makeup bag? 

Today I’m sitting on the beach and I thought I would let you know what kind of makeup I decided to pack. During hot summer days between the beach and long walks there is no point in wearing makeup. The only time I actually bother is during our night strolls and even then I go for something simple and quick.

So here is what makeup I packed for seven days in Naxos, Greece.

As far as foundation is concerned I skipped it entirely and just got a BB cream. Because BB creams tend to have lighter coverage I also packed a concealer for under the eyes as well as added coverage.

For blush I packed the Estée Lauder signature blush in 19 Nude Nuance. I use the lighter shade as blush and the darker as a bronzer. (Rule breaker)

For the eyes I went with just a sample mascara from Dior. ( Well I also brought an eyeliner but never really used.)

At this time I’m all about highlighters so I obviously didn’t forget to pack one! 

Because until this point my makeup was pretty simple I chose two lipsticks to get a more dramatic look.    A brownish nude from YSL in rouge pur couture no 66 and a classic, summery red no 35.

What makeup item do you always pack? Let me know in the comments below.
