It’s been a long time since I received this palette from Maybelline, and the truth is that I’m a little behind on my reviews here on the blog. I do review them on my Youtube channel, but I really want to also write posts for them here. So I’ll try to post reviews more often from now on. When I received the MasterBlush Color & highlighting kit, I wasn’t sure I was gonna use it much, but I ended up using it non-stop in the months that followed and I really loved it. The palette includes 3 shades of blushes and one highlighter. The blushes start from the lightest and go to the darkest. We have a peach one, a light pink one and a magenta one. You can use them all individually or you can combine them to create a more intense look. I use them all-together most of the time and do the “draping” technique where you contour and highlight your face using just blushes and a highlighter. The palette is also very practical and that’s why I also took it with me on my trip to The Netherlands. The blushes are quite pigmented, so you have to be careful about how much product you use. The highlighter is quite subtle and natural though, and that’s why I reach for it, even on days when I’m not using the blushes of the palette.
Last week I finally tried out the #purplehair Colorista Washout on my hair, and I filmed it for my Youtube channel. It’s already up, and you can actually watch it at the end of this post. It’s in Greek, but you can see the process and the final result up close. Of course you can get a glimpse of it through these photos but it looks so much better in that video. We actually shot these photos, shortly after I finished with the filming of my video, so it was the same day. I wore pink and purple hues to accentuate the color of my hair (which by the way, I loved!), but the true star of this outfit is my hair. I’m seriously thinking of making the change more permanent and adding purple shades to my copper hair, or even go full purple. We’ll see about it. I have to talk about it with my hairdresser, because I’m not a colorist myself. I did do the coloring myself at home this time, but I wouldn’t trust me with a more permanent dye. Plus I have to dye my roots too. But for now the color is looking great, and I’ll keep you posted about its fading process.
This is the outfit I wore the other day to go shopping with T. I didn’t shop for clothes or makeup, just some necessary stuff, like hair oils and masks, which were running low on my stock. So we naturally took some quick outfit photos before going in to shop, because I seriously love this place as a background of my photos. The look of the day, was quite casual, and I look and feel like a kid, like a little girl, when I’m wearing a dress like this, and flat sandals. We didn’t take many photos because there was nothing special about it, but I wanted to show it to you either way. Today I’m planning to do some changes. I’m not going to say what kind, but if everything goes as planned, you’ll learn about it very soon. Just wish me luck! See you soon with a new outfit post. I hope you have an amazing summer weekend!
These culottes are also one of my latest sales purchases, and even though I loved them, I’m still not sure about them, and how they look on me. Most of my friends complimented me on them, so I’m eager to make them work. For their first outing, I decided to go with my off-the-shoulder top, a previous purchase of mine, but I wasn’t sure about the shoes. Since I’m not that tall, and the pants are “cutting” me around the ankles, I didn’t want to wear a pair of shoes that would do the same. I rejected most of my pumps because I definitely wasn’t going to wear closed pumps in such heat, but I didn’t think of my peep-toe pumps. So I went with my initial thought which was my oldie mules from the early 00s (possibly), but I was not too happy about the final result. I said I wasn’t going to buy new mules, because it’s a style I don’t wear that often, and I don’t particularly like, but now I’m finding myself wondering if I should. All in all, I actually loved this outfit, but I think it would have looked hell of a lot bet better, if the mules were higher, and had a more modern heel. Can’t wait to try my next combination with these pants!
I wore this outfit on my nameday last Saturday, and all I have to say is that I loved it. I bought the skirt a few days ago, on sale, it cost almost 13euros, which was half price, and I really wanted to wear it as soon as possible. The first item that came to mind was of course my dusty pink Migato backpack, and then I thought about combining the skirt with this off-the-shoulder top that I was looking forward to wearing again. While thinking of shoes to go with this outfit, I remembered these pink & black ones, with the studs that go perfectly with my backpack. How didn’t I think of this combo sooner? It’s like a match made in heaven! I look ultra pale in these photos due to the bright daylight, and the white floor that reflects it, but I certainly don’t mind being pale, nor am I looking forward to being “tanned” for summer. I’ve embraced my skin color many years ago, and I feel great in it. Love your skin and bodies ladies. They’re the ones you were born with, and they’re fabulous! 😉 See you soon!
