How to keep the color on your nails shiny!!!


1. The frequent use of antiseptic for your hands can make color of your nails looking fade because of alcohol content in their composition. Use it only when necessary.


2. Avoid washing your hands with too cold/hot water. Low temperatures can damage the edges of the nail and also your nail polish design.

3. The heat and water vapor can also can fade the color that you are wearing.

4. The scrub products are known for their exfoliating action on the skin of the face and body. Unfortunately they can cause the same effect on your nails! That is why if you have your nails painted make sure to wear gloves while using scrub products.

5. Be sure to always wear gloves when washing dishes. Water, soap and rubbing with the sponge make nail polish to peel. Preferably you can also wear them while you are doing housework to protect your hands in total.

AVON!

AVON is a worldwide cosmetics company!

I recently subscribed to Avon and I am loving it!!!

These are the stuff I ordered and also some bonus samples they sent me :)



What I ordered

  1.   A sunscrine with SPF 50, for face and lips
  2.   A mattifying foundation base
  3.   A plumping lip gloss in "Pink Pucker"
 What extra products the sent me
  1. 5 tiny lipsticks (2 brown, 1 soft pink, 1 peach, 1 brownish red)
  2. 5 perfume samples
  3. 1 renewal serum

I am very satisfied with all the products!

Here is the review for the lipgloss and the base!!

Τhe lipgloss is supposed to plump your lips!
Well, for me it doesn't have the best result, but however it makes my lips look a bit fuller and also it has this minty cute sent!!!
(+ I love how it looks!!!)


The base it's a bit shimmery, which fact I love and it feels so light on my skin!
I totally recommend it cause it makes my skin feel so soft and plus you do not have to use foundation if you are not looking for a full coverage!!!


Tip: Prefer using just a foundation base or a light foundation during the summer!!!
It is better because with a heavy foundation during the hot days it is harder for the skin to "breathe" through it.




           I hope you found this post useful!!
I totally suggest you to try out Avon products!
(+ a MASSIVE advantage of avon commerce: it is never tested on animals and all the sprays are not harming the environment)

BB creams! The new sensation!!!

 Most of you have already heard of them but if not, what a bb cream is, it's actually a cream that gives a bit of coverage too.

Why is it so popular?

Well, we all now that women have in their bathroom tons of bottles of different types of cream, moisturisers etc. but now thanks to BB creams we can have a product that has all-in-one properties — moisturizer, primer, foundation, and sunblock  


Since BB creams became so popular and loved all the cosmetics companies had to creat their own BB creams!

Here I have a list of the most wanted BB creams and some advice on how to choose the best for your skin!

  • Miricale Skin Perfector, by GARNIER

Garnier's bb cream it's great for day time! Works well on both older and youner ladies!!!
How does it looks like >>





  • Area Mineral BB, by Vichy 

 
For Vichy's BB cream is for those who need more coverage and also it's great for older ladies! 
How does it look like >>



  • Day Wear BB, by Estee Lauder

Estee Lauder's bb cream is the one I recommend for shiny days! It has SPF 35, for me it works the best as a sun protector comparing it to the others.
How does it look like >>




  • Camera Ready BB, by  Smashbox 

Smashbox's BB cream I believe is the BEST for teens, it has a great coverage and works great if you're going out and you want to take pictures!

How does it look like >>






I hope I helped you!!!

Rocking the Red Lips!!!

There are so many different types of red lipstick out there, so I believe that there is not only one particular way to rock the red lips!!!

For example, mat deep red colour goes perfect with black winked eyeliner







 Brown eyeshadow on the crease creates this elegant deep eye effect!
All this look remind me of the 50's make up!!!




Now there is the orange red lipstick too!
This looks great with soft naturaly looking eyes, not harsh colours like black eyeliner!











In addition, for younger ages, there is the glossy red lips look!
I love it with simple bright eye make up!!!









At the end we have the brownish red lipstick!
I believe this colour looks better on older ladies and can bring a chic and sophisticated style to anyone who wears it!
Looks UH-mazing with full and huge lushes (even fake ones!) and soft brown eyeliner on the lower lush line!!!

















I hope I helped you with your red lipstick choice!!! Don't be afraid to wear red on your lips, just make sure to match it with the perfect eye make up, accessories and clothes!!!
