Matte lipsticks are my favorite, they always look posh and elegant on the lips, but it can be complicated and tricky to maintain matte lip look. Matte lips tend to get dry and chapped and the application of matte lip product demands special attention. Matte finishes are the best for everyday and night occasions and today I`m going to show you how to wear matte lipstick and always look flawless and trendy.

Exfoliation

First of all you need to prepare your lips before applying matte lipstick or lip gloss. Matte textures easily settle into the wrinkles, fine lines and dry patches on your lips, so you need to make sure your lips are as smooth as canvas. You can use soft toothbrush, white sugar or even baking soda to gently scrub your lips and remove dry, chapped skin. Make sure to exfoliate your lips regularly, because regular glossy lipsticks and glittery lip glosses look the best on a soft and smooth lips.

Hydration 

Our lips are very tender and have a thinner layer of skin than any other part of our body, that`s why lips loose moisture faster and easier. I have a super dry lips and need some special, intense treatment to prevent dry patches and the only thing that keeps my lips healthy is a Lip Sleeping Mask by Laneige ( review is here). Using matte lipsticks can make your lips even more dry and chapped, so to prevent this inconvenience apply a thin layer of hydrating lip balm right before you apply lipstick. You don`t need to spend a fortune to keep your lips hydrated, just try to find lip balm that won`t be very oily or runny, the one that will `stay in place`. I prefer to use beewax based lip balms and my favorite at the moment is Visibly Soft Lip Balm by EOS (review here).

Application 

Matte lipstick is probably the only lipstick that does not require a lip pencil. If applying accurately and neatly it won`t smudge, but I would still recommend you to use a lip pencil. Line your lips, creating a desirable lip shape with a sharp matte lip pencil. Apply matte lipstick on your lips and give it some time to dry and set on the lips. Clean up the edges with a help of foundation or concealer and a synthetic lip brush to get that perfect, precised look. To make your lip color last all day set it with some translucent powder, I also like to set my matte lipstick with a matte eyeshadow of similar color. Bold matte lip finishes can make your lips appear smaller and thinner, but you can avoid this by applying highlighter on the center of your lips. Try to apply powder highlighters like Hi Lite `Opals` Palette by Unicorns (review here), you can get three different finishes with this palette.

Alexandrite Makeup Tutorial | June Birthstone

Hi everyone, it is time for a new step by step makeup tutorial inspired by mysterious birthstone of month June. When I was small I owned a very simple, but beautiful ring with a small Alexandrite gemstone. This stone is often described as “emerald by day, ruby by night”, because of it`s rare ability to change color - from a light, almost transparent sky blue shade under the sun lights, to a rich grape purple under the artificial light. This unique color looks especially breathtaking on brown, amber and tile green eyes. Inspired by this exclusivity, I`ve created a very simple and wearable Alexandrite Makeup Tutorial and you can easily recreate this makeup look following these easy steps.

1. Start your eye makeup with an eyeshadow primer. Evenly apply it all over your eyelid and blend it with a help of your ring finger. Eyeshadow primer will help your eyeshadow to last longer and look brighter. You can continue your makeup after an eyeshadow primer will absorb into the skin.

2. Fill in your eye brows using an eye brow pencil or an eyeshadow, as you prefer. Start to apply teal eye pencil on the inner and outer corner of your eyelid, leaving the center of an eyelid empty. No need to be precised and perfect, eye pencil will act as a base for an eyeshadow. 

3. Blend the pencil with a help of small and soft synthetic brush and set it with an eyeshadow of similar color. I also used some dark blue eyeshadow to make the color more intense.

4. Now it is time to fill in the space on the center of an eyelid, apply a muave color and blend the transition between all the shades. Don`t forget to blend the crease area, use some nude pink eyeshadow to help the process. 

5. The next step is to put a black eye kohl on the upper waterline and forest green pencil on the lower waterline. Draw a beautiful wing with liquid or gel eyeliner, curl the lashes and apply few coats of mascara. Finish the Alexandrite Makeup look with false eye lashes and it`s done.

I want to congratulate everyone, who was born in month June, you are so lucky to have beautiful Alexandrite as your birthstone. I really hope you liked Alexandrite inspired tutorial, please don`t hesitate to let me know in the comment section what do you think of this makeup look, I`m excited to hear your opinion. Don`t forget to follow my blog for more birthstone inspired makeup tutorials, I`ll talk to you soon, hugs and kisses !

Lots of love,

Essence is one of my favorite budget friendly makeup brands, I`m obsessed with their selection of inexpensive cosmetics, so when I run out of my Palma Christie Ultra BB Cream (review here), I`ve decided to try out  Essence Camouflage 2 in 1 Make-up & Concealer - a very special product that combines foundation and concealer in one cute tube. Essence claims to offer a long-lasting, high coverage effect, hide all skin imperfections and provides a flawless finish – without a mask-like effect. So let`s take a closer look at this magic potion!

Essence Camouflage Concealer has a very smooth texture, quick drying formula and matte finish. It is water based, so I can definitely recommend this product to everyone who has an acne prone and oily skin types. Because of it`s quick drying and opaque formula Essence 2 in 1 Make-up & Concealer tends to emphasize fine lines and dry skin patches, but you can easily solve this issue with a help of a nice moisturizing cream and/or makeup primer.

The coverage is terrific, it covers up all the freckles, redness and blemishes with one fine layer and a little of this foundation by Essence goes a long way! The formula is buildable, so if you need an extra coverage here and there you can always reapply a tiny drop of this product and concealer the problem. Camouflage 2 in 1 Make-up & Concealer is available three shades - `10 ivory beige`, `20 nude beige` and `30 honey beige`. Even though I have a pretty light skin I decided to give a try to a shade called`20 nude beige` - a yellow based light to medium shade.

Overall, I loved using Essence Camouflage Make-up & Concealer, this is a great budget product for people with oily and acne prone skin. It is truly a long lasting and highly pigmented foundation, which does a great job of hiding skin imperfections and dark circles. Even though it does not fill in my large pores, I will definitely continue to use it, but with a nice primer underneath this foundation. 

Lots of love,
Liz

These product are paraben and petrolatum free, they are hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested (but cruelty free) and absolutely safe for every type of skin.

EOS `Coconut Milk` lip balm is so so cute! I fell in love with it`s girly pink and white packaging and sweet scent of coconut and vanilla. It is lightweight, small and easy to carry around. The key ingredients of this little sphere are jojoba oil - for a long lasting hydration, shea butter - for a soft and smooth lips and Vitamin E - protection and wrinkle reduction. These ingredient makes EOS lip balm a great natural alternative to all the lip balms containing parabens and artificial colors and flavors. `Coconut Milk` is absolutely clear, so you don`t even need a mirror and you can even apply this lip balm on the go.

EOS lip balms are super cute, fun and affordable, they feel lightweight on the lips and provide the skin with long - lasting hydration effect.

I`m a huge fan of backpacks and rucksacks and love to wear them on everyday basis. Maybe some of you might think that adult backpacks look immature, but I`m found of the idea to place my belongings in one huge bag and having both of my hands free. Recently I had an awesome opportunity to pick a stylish  and practical backpack at Zaful. This year is very special for this store and it`s team and all the customers, because Zaful celebrates it`s 3rd anniversary! To celebrate this special event Zaful hosts a huge giveaway and I`m going to talk about it in the end of my post. And now let`s take a close look at this gorgeous backpack.

The Studded PU Leather Backpack* is made from a special PU material - a kind of polyurethane material that looks and feels like faux leather but with a beautiful shiny appearance. This backpack looks very similar to the famous Michael Kors collection of rhea studded leather backpacks, but it is a lot cheaper and cruelty free. Backpack features silver-embossed decorative studs and a huge amount of different pockets - two big departments for books, clothes and cosmetics, two interior pockets for tiny secret necessities and one secret pocket on the back of the backpack. You can use this secret department to hide your cash, credit cards and documents.

What I really love about this backpack is it`s medium size - it is not a mini backpack where you can`t even fit in your cell phone and not a huge school backpack. But at same time it looks petite, cute and practical. It is very lightweight, an empty backpack weights about 1kg, it has an adjustable (60 - 90 cm) strap length, so you can easily fit this backpack on.

Overall, I`m in love with this backpack, currently it is my favorite item in the wardrobe. The Studded PU Leather Backpack is a day wear versatile backpack and it perfectly goes with both sporty and grungy outfits, holding all my everyday essentials. It is very easy to match this gorgeous backpack with all my day to day outfits. You an easily wear it with sophisticated outfits - ruffled top, leather skirt and a pair of classic pumps, or for an edgy look wear this backpack with thigh-high patent boots, tight bodycon dress and leather jacket.
