#LIPSTICKS : SUMMER COLOR – LIST

  During  summer you don’t need a lot of foundation or  blushes  , you just need a good bronzer and the perfect lipstick  . But what makes a lipstick perfect anyway ? Is it  the color , the texture or the box ? Well these too ,but the most important thing to do before you buy a lipstick is to try it on and see if it looks good with your hair and eye’s color ! Here I have  a list with the hottest lipsticks for this season !!   BEFORE YOU TRY ANY OF THESE PRODUCTS , DON’T FORGET TO : EXFOLIATE ( if you don’t have a lip scrub ,use a little bit of honey and  sugar and you make your own lip scrub ! ) MOISTURISE   (a lip balm would make your lips look softer !)  

#3INAMAKERS

3INA , pronounced  Mina , is a brand new cosmetics company . Their first flagship store opened last month in Covent Garden London and their second one opened today in Athens ! Three words can describe 3INA properly  and these are : price , quality and variety  !  When I first got into the 3INA store in The Mall Athens , it was literally like a candy store just like the founder of the company , Eve Mark , said during the amazing presentation . The most important thing in a cosmetic store is the light , the 3INA store has the best lighting than any other store I’ve ever been . Except for the perfect lighting the store is a ”color nest ”, forget the typical basic color palette , in the 3INA stores there are no limits. All shades of green , pink , even electric blue everything you can imagine in a beautiful place full of experts who can help you apply them on  . A “beauty heaven” for every budget , in a 3INA store you …

Miss Lauder

My foundation story begins from  my  early high school years. As a teenager I did a lot of make up , especially  every morning before school. I used to wake up an hour earlier than the others and try to get ready .   So seven years full of make up mean that I  have tried loads of products?? But the thing I have changed a thousand times is my  foundation . The right foundation is the most important thing about your make up routine . I understood that from the very  begining  , so I started to try different products  . I have tried a lot of different foundation , from the very expensive to the very cheap , but the ”thing” is not about the price at all . Good foundation means first fitting and second quality . So after all these years , I  have discovered the best foundation for me at the moment and it’s name is Double Wear by Estee Lauder. I prefer to call it “Miss Lauder” because that product is the …

Glow kit – the winter edition

Make up is one of the most important things of my lifestyle. I can’t imagine my life , my face without the glow that my perfect Estee Lauder foundation offers me. It’s not that I dont like the natural beauty , instead I admire it ,but I prefer that shine and  freshness  that a make up gives on my  face  . Speaking about myself , well  my skin is not  “perfect”. Every day I give a fight with the redness , the spots and so many issues that make me look kinda blurry. We have to thank our parents for our beautiful characteristics and besides them we thank  all the beauty stores . It’s  winter ,  Christmas is so close , everything is cold ,even darker  , I mean the brightness of summer is gone . The winter is that season when  a woman can be more blurry than any other season . I want to keep the glow girls . Don’t  you? And beacause I’m sure you do, let me show you ”Kiki’s glow kit” – winter …

OCTOBER LOVES HYDRATION

October , the cloudy month  !! The cold winter has startednand our skin needs a lot of care . As for the hydration , I cannot speak as dermatologost but , I can speak as a woman around 20 who wants to be beautiful and her beauty to last  .  Maybe i dont have the experience of a 40 years old woman , but i do  have tried a lot  of beauty  products . Over the past years I used to go to a beauty store and get crazy about all the new products and the new “shiny bottles” and I often ended up with 5 or 10 huge bags from Sephora  . But ,when  I  eventually used  all those ” shiny bottles ” to the end , I realized that I cannot buy all that stuff again   !!  So I  decided that I have to be more picky with my beauty buys and purchase only the produts I really need . And believe me all you can buy from a beauty store is what you trully …

Giorgio Armani – Lasting Silk foundation

As a woman and blogger I have to have my make up on all day long and this is  not that easy ,  especially during the summer with all that heat and sweat . Summer is the most beautiful and exciting season of the year but not so good for our make up girls!May the sun give us tan -but not not waist  our make up !!! I have tried so many foundations for summer  through the years from a lot of brands  , but  nothing was good enough. The summery foundoution is  have to be very special , because it must combine really good  cover , nice and thin texture and be long-lasting . I know that’s a lot I’m asking for ,but we all  need and diserve the best !! So after all this research I found a very good foundation for summer , the  Lasting Silk foundation by Giorgio Armani . This is the first time I use an Armani foundation and  I’m completely satisfied . It was love from the first touch!! When the …

5 steps to beauty express

It’s a ladies’ time ! All girls have our beauty secrets ,some girls have something bigger and , others may have something simple , but we all do have at least one . Beauty is not just a pretty face , I believe all the fashionable girls know that . Beauty is your whole personality ,not just an expensive foundation and an it- bag but also is your vibes. Sometimes I wake up in the morning in a blue mood and when I go to my vanity mirror I see something different from the other days . Wear your most beautiful smile and let’s begin. – Create a beauty routine and never break that rule ! Use a cleansing soap for a clean and , bright face . Our skin gets more tired with all that make up on it everyday than our feet in Manolos . We have to keep our faces deeply hydrated to make the skin look younger and fresh , so you definitely need a moisturizer cream like the Hydra Beauty …
