Have you ever heard about desert roses and their unique nature? Desert rose is a name of a rare crystal formation. It is a very beautiful sand rock, that 'grows' in desert regions. Today's makeup was inspired by the cold calm colors, sharp edges and mystery of this extraordinary sand phenomenon. You can learn how to create this easy makeup for brown eyes, just follow this step by step tutorial and give your eyes a lovely makeover.

1. Start your makeup with an eyeshadow primer, apply the product all over your eyelid and blend with a help of your ring finger. Eyeshadow primer will help eyeshadow to last all day long. Shape and fill in your eyebrows.

2. Highlight the brow bone and the inner corner of your eyes using a light rose gold eyeshadow with shimmer. Apply a very light brown matte eyeshadow on the crease.

3. Start to apply matte truffle color on the crease, blend it with a soft blending brush. 

4. Applydusty rose color on the eye lid. I've used matte eyeshadow, but you can use satin or shimmer finish for the lid. 

5. Tightline your eyes - apply a black eye kohl pencil on the top and bottom waterline. Draw a beautiful wing using liquid or gel eyeliner. 

6. Curl the lashes and apply a few coat of your favorite mascara. Add some false lashes to finish up this makeup for brown eyes and you're done!

You can even use this eye makeup as an everyday look, just don't make your eyeliner too dramatic. I like to pair this look with a nude lipstick and dewy skin finish. I hope you liked this makeup, I had so much fun creating it. Until next time!

Lots of love,

Hi everyone, do you love cinnamon rolls? I think it is one of the best holiday dish you can prepare for your friends and family. As always I've decided to add something personal in the recipe and today I'm going to show you how to prepare very quick and easy these cute Lime Cinnamon Rolls. This recipe is beginner friendly and you can even bake these rolls together with your kids. Let`s start!

Ingredients:

• 2 cups of flour
• 3/4 Warm Milk
• 1 full teaspoon of dry yeast 
• 1 Egg
• Vanilla extract 
• 2 Teaspoons baking powder
• Ground cinnamon
• White Sugar
• Salt
• Butter
• Lime Juice

1. Start with preheating your oven to 400 F (200 C). Prepare the baking dish by applying a very thin layer of butter or vegetable oil. 

2. Put yeast and a necessary amount of sugar into the mixing bowl, add a warm milk and let the yeast dissolve.

3. Add an egg and vanilla extract to the milk and yeast. Sift the flour and add it to the mixing bowl together with baking powder and a little pinch of salt.

4. Start stirring the dough, it should be soft and supple. You can use plastic spatula or stir it with hands. Apply some vegetable oil n your hands, so the dough won't stick to them.

6. Let the dough rest around 30 minutes and prepare lime caramel for filling: mix sugar with lime juice and let the mixture thicken in the pan.

7. Put dough on the table, apply vegetable oil on the table, so the dough won't stick to the surface. Roll dough into a thin rectangle and brush the surface of dough with soft butter, lime caramel and sprinkle with cinnamon. 

8. Roll the dough to form a log and cut it into few little rolls. Place the rolls in the baking dish and bake until rolls are done, usually it takes 25 minutes. And lime cinnamon rolls are done!

How To Conceal A Sleepless Night | Makeup Tips & Tricks

Saturday, November 11, 2017
dark under eye circles area how to remove conceal concealer color correction

Have you stayed up late working all night long? Or maybe you had an insomnia crisis? We`ve all experienced sleepless night and it`s effects. Puffy face, swollen eyes, dull skin with dark spots and under eye bags - these are the smallest issues caused by a lack of sleep. Today I`m going to show you few simple ways how to reduce and hide consequences of a bad night's sleep and survive through the day.

Reduce The Puffiness 

A bad night's sleep can cause bloodshot eyes and puffy face. The reason why our face gets bloated after a sleepless night is hormonal malfunction. Unhealthy lifestyle and lack of sleep leads to the collection of extra fluids in facial tissues and causes swelling of the face and eyes in the morning. To reduce puffiness you can use tea bags, cucumber and zucchini slices, but nobody has time for that in the morning, especially if your routine got ruined with a sleepless night. You can easily solve this problem by throwing a couple of spoons in the freezer for 5 minutes and using them to freeze the puffiness, it is my favorite method! I struggle with red and puffy eyes in the summer and I can`t hide myself from allergy. If you need some serious help with  face swelling try using a Pore Smasher by Banish (review here). This rolling massage tool reduces enlarged pores, puffiness and your face looks instantly refreshed.

Get Energized 

You don`t imagine what a 15 minutes of cardio exercises can do to your body! Cardio prevents stress, reduces body fat and fills your body with energy. Energy drinks and food can also help you and your body to wake up and make you feel better. Drink plenty of water to hydrate your body and skin, water is on of the best natural remedies to stay fresh.

Conceal Don't Feel

Nothing reveals a bad night's sleep like dark circle under the eyes. The skin around the eyes is very thin and tender, that`s why it is easily effected by sleep deprivation. Of course it is impossible to make dark circles vanish forever in one moment, it is a complex problem and it needs a wide serious approach. But what we can't drive away immediately, we can hide with a help of foundation and concealer. Try to use a color correction method to beat dark circles under your eyes. Yellowish and orange shades help to conceal reddish-purple hue showing through the skin. Don't forget to apply concealer correctly: apply the product on the lowest part of the dark circle and gently pad the concealer with your ring finger. I love to use Catrice Re-Touch Concealer, it has a yellow undertone and doesn't crease under the eyes, check out my full review here. To set the concealer on the place use a lightweight translucent powder, like this Mering Loose powder by Nanda (review), the finer is the powder the better is the result.

Makeup Disguise 

Unfortunately you can`t follow your regular makeup routine in the days when you had a sleepless night. Tired skin, redness and dark spots on the face won`t take a regular everyday makeup or classic smokey eyes and you will look even more exhausted. You can always use your favorite sunglasses to hide a bad night's sleep, but there are few simple tricks that will make you look and feel well rested.

First of all tired skin lacks in hydration, so apply a refreshing lightweight moisturizer under the foundation. My skin tends to get especially dry and flaky if I had a sleepless night and I prefer to use organic Overnight Moisturizer by Stemology. Moisturizer will prevent your foundation from caking into fine lines and provide your gentle skin with nourishment.

To refresh your complexion try to brighten your tired skin with some lively color - coral, peachy, baby pink. Avoid cold undertones and excessive contouring, it can make you look older. But on other hand you have freedom to play with highlighter! Add it on the highest points of your face - cheekbones, brow bones and on the cupids bow. Don't apply any eyeshadow or mascara on the lower lash line and under the eyes, instead of this step apply bright nude or white pencil on the bottom waterline. This will open up your eyes and make them look awake.

In the end of the day don`t forget to remove your makeup, have a nice long shower and your regular 8 hours of beauty sleep. Healthy lifestyle is a guarantee of beautiful skin  and good mood, that's why a good night of high-grade sleep should be your priority. I hope my tips will help you to get through the restless day and make you feel more refreshed. I`ll talk to you very soon again!

Lots of love,

5 Best Eyeshadow Palettes For Winter Makeup Looks

Wednesday, November 08, 2017
urban decay morphe kat von d kylie jenner cosmetics winter dark smoky eyeshadow palette review

Winter is a perfect time to reconsider your wardrobe and makeup collection by adding some dark plum, burgundy and indigo shades in your look. Of course, matte beige, white and brown colors will still remain essential for makeup routine, while other colors such as electric green, yellow and pink you can bravely substitute with black, silver and sage green. Christmas and New Year eves are the best excuse to treat yourself with a new eyeshadow palette full of cold and saturated winter colors. In today's blog post I picked five gorgeous eyeshadow palette that will help you to create the most beautiful and mysterious makeup looks for late fall and winter time.

Let's start with the latest release from Kylie Cosmetics - a gorgeous autumn/winter inspired The Purple Palette. This palette features nine colors: four shimmer and five matte eyeshadows with cute names Blueberry, Purple Smoke, Amethyst, Wine N' Dine, Turning Violet, Lilac, Stone, Trophy, and Periwinkle. The texture of the eyeshadows is creamy and pigmentation is incredibly intense. I bet this palette will became as popular as other makeup products by Kylie Cosmetics, though some bloggers complained about the formula. Originally The Purple Palette was introduced as part of fall collection, but on my opinion these shades can perfectly represent and compliment winter outfits as well.

The next winter eyeshadow palette in my list is a Star Studded eyeshadow book by the expert in dark gothic makeups Kat Von D. This palette is number one in my current makeup wishlist and I can't stop admiring the original design of the packaging and excellent compilation of colors. Obviously, you can spot few romantic pastel shades like light green and soft pink, but they are used to seamlessly blend darker colors. Beauty bloggers and professional makeup artists claimed that these colors are bold and long-lasting, the only issue was with a shade called Gothica, because of its chunky formula. Overall, this eyeshadow palette has all the shades you need to create seductive smoky eye look.

Morphe Pro 35 Color Eyeshadow Palette will be loved by both professional makeup artists and beginners, because it has all the necessary shades for perfect everyday eye look and a night our party makeup. This palette includes an exquisite assortment of earth toned cold/warm shades and a selection of unique violet colors. When I saw the swatches for the first time I was nicely surprised, because all the shades look very pigmented even without an eyeshadow primer. Some of the shimmer eyeshadows are chalky, and you need to blend them extra well for a smooth silky finish. This eyeshadow is truly amazing and I think it is a must have for any makeup lover. I even spotted few duochrome eyeshadows in this palette, isn't it amazing?


A perfect combination of matte and shimmering eyeshadow for a flawless brown smokey eye or a simple and subtle natural makeup look. This travel friendly palette by Nars was released at spring 2016 and consists of an amazing mix of 12 neutral and dark colors. You can even use some of the shades to fill in your eyebrows! This eyeshadow palette perfectly suits every complexion and can beautifully emphasize every eye color.

And the last for today, but definitely not least makeup palette is an Urban Decay Mariposa eyeshadow palette. It is a Sephora-exclusive eyeshadow palette created for the holiday season and it comes with a travel-sized eyeshadow brush. Five stars to the pigmented, long-lasting formula and to the gorgeous and unique metal tin design of the packaging. Some of the colors are a little bit too dry, but you can solve this problem by applying a nice eyeshadow primer before makeup.

These are my five best makeups palettes for late autumn and winter time! Don't forget to check the full range of wholesale makeups Will you grab a new eyeshadow palette this winter? Please let me know in comments what is in your current wishlist. Until next time 

Lots of love,

Citrine is incredible beautiful stone and thanks to its bright yellow color it is known as a gem of optimism and energy. Citrine is a variety of quartz and very close relative of Amethyst stone.

1. To make sure our Citrine makeup lasts all day long start with an eyeshadow primer, apply the product all over your eyelid and blend with a help of your ring finger. Eyeshadow primer will make the makeup last longer and look brighter.

2. Fill in your eye brows using a matte eye brow pencil or an eye shadow. Highlight the brow bone and the inner corner of your eyes using a white eyeshadow with shimmer or very fine glitter. Apply a brown matte pencil on the outer half of the crease. 

3. Blend the pencil with a soft synthetic brush and apply brown matte eyeshadow on the top of the pencil. Try to keep the line of the crease clean and neat, you can clean it with concealer.

4. Apply bright yellow eyeshadow on the eyelid, gently dabbing the color with a flat eyeshadow brush for an even opaque look. You can also add a little bit of shimmer eyeshadow on the top. 

5. Tightline your eyes - apply a black eye kohl pencil on the top and bottom waterline. Draw a beautiful wing using liquid or gel eyeliner. Curl the lashes and apply a few coat of your favorite mascara. Apply some false lashes to finish up this bright Citrine makeup look.

I want to wish happy birthday to everyone, who was born in November. Citrine is a very pretty gemstone and yellow makeup look can beautifully emphasize amber, brown and blue eyes. Bright yellow makeup is perfect for cold and rainy days. I hope you liked my simple and glamorous interpretation of this look, please let me know in the comments if you liked it. Hugs and kisses and until the next time:*

Lots of love,
