May's loves :)

Helloooo make up sporties,
I hope everyone's doing well.
The temperature rises, heat is destroying every attempt for decent full make up and me trying to find ways to have my make up without melting in 3 hours....

  • Murad's oil control mattifier helps a lot, I cannot live without it anymore!
  • Estee Lauder's Sumptuous Lifting Mascara is an ok mascara that I use everyday so as to give the impression that my lashes exist :P
  • Mac's lipstick "up the amp" is a beautiful purplish colour that I love, trendy but not so much "out there", I can wear it at work too!
  • Korres eye shadow in 42S Green White is a summery light blue-green eye shadow, I wear it every day and love it :)
  • Mac's eye shadow in satin taupe and trax : My make up looks professional with these two ;D
Those were my May favourites, I hope I gave you some ideas so as to try new products ;)
I am looking forward to reading your favourites :)

Once again thank you :)

Cooking Chinchillas Thank You Giveaway

One og my favourite blogs is hosting a great giveaway with some cute and interesting stuff!
You just have to fill a form here.
The Giveaway is open internationally and ends on May 27 th.
Good luck!

A tiny haul :)

I went to hondos center yesterday and these pencils caught my eye..
 The one is a lip liner by Radiant which looks awesome on its own (I used korres mandarin lip butter stick and then filled my lips with this liner). The other one (by Manhattan) thought it was a lipliner but it's actually an eye liner pencil...who cares, I am going to wear it both ways as its colour is to die for.
That was my mini haul, thank God 25%off was over and didn't approach mac's counter at all.

That's all from me now...


Amongst others , I was given by Argyro three awards :

Thank you Argyro very much for these awards :)

When you get the award you have to :
1-Τhank the person who gave you the award and link back to their blog in your post
2-Τell 7 things about yourself
3-Award 15 other blogs & contact the bloggers to let them know that they received the award.

7 things about myself
1.I love red lipstick and pin up make up
2.I drink french (filtered) coffee more than two times a day
3.I hate going to the cinema, If I want to see a movie I rent one from my local video club and stay at home (when I go out I want communication, to talk and laugh without annoying "shhhh" by others :)  )
4.When I wake up earlier in the morning than the time I am used to, I become waaaay too grouchy.
5.I love high heels but rarely wear them (I'm 5.9 = 1.75m high) as I feel insecure with shorter people around me.
6.When I was a teeenager I was dreaming of myself getting married to Liam Gallagher (member of OASIS).I still love him. :P
7.I cannot imagine my life without music, chocolate and cheese. 

I give these awards to...

A gift :)

Hello makeup sporties :)
I was lucky enough to win a givaway hosted by Christina and I'm so happy for that! I won a Jennifer Aniston perfume which is summery and soft.

 If you want a perfume that it isn't OUT THERE and doesn't imply that you try too much then that's for you!

When I wear it gives me the feeling that I'm the girl next door, who has just come back from a playful day at the sea :) wearing an airy coral dress and flip flops :). It's light, sexy and warm.

I love the fact that Christina put a little note along with my gift :) So sweet of her!

Thank you so much Cristina for this wonderful gift! :)

Much love,
Beatie :)

Rediscover Challenge by Vintage Makeup

Hi again make up fans :).Vintage Makeup started a fun challenge where you rediscover make up items you have completely forgot about.As I was trying to organize my makeup drawers I found quite a lot of stuff I don't use of them was Korres Mango Butter Lipstick in Fuchsia no54.

Unfortunately the lighting isn't very good and it looks orangey but it's not. It's a pure ultrashimmery fuchsia, intense pink undertones, a little lip-jewel :)
It's on the sheer side but buildable, moisturizing and extra shining.

One dawnside is that you can feel the shimmers on your lips and that it's not long lasting..I find that it suits more to cool toned ladys or tanned :)

That's all for now..

My little Mac haul

On Friday I decided to go shopping as I heard that Hondos (cosmetics store) had 25% off. So I happily visited the mac counter where I bought the prettiest lipsticks eveeeeer!
 Girl about town

Up the amp

I had never imagined that I could pull off such intense beautiful colours(girl about town was in my wish list for a long time though)!I tried them on me as I was curious and I'm so glad I did!
I also bought a blush which suits the lipsticks ... The truth is..dollymix is a blush I would never choose to buy.The reason: its name (silly I knowww) Dolly reminds me of a cow and Mix of an old fashioned coctail.Besides that I hated that every girl on youtube had that blush...(sometimes I tend to go against the flow, it's an inner physical reaction).So the make up artist showed me 3 colours and I picked that without knowing that it is dollymix.Now I understand why this is such a hit, it's so prettyyyyyyyy!

Last but not least I bought this wonderful crease brush only for about 3 euros (bargain right?) by a company named Toyoko.

Now...I'll start niggling. Sometimes I don't know what I am thinking and destroy every good moment I have.I bought some hair dye as lately I've been seeing much white hair which I hate.I didn't buy a basic colour (just brown) but I chose a complicated colour (chocolate blond) just to change a little bit. After I had finished my hair I realised that my lipsticks may not suit my new hair.All the joy of my purchases had diminished as up the amp didn't look as good as with my former hair and girl about town didn't make the beautiful contrast it did in the store. Change of hair = change of makeup.
Anyways nothing is going to stop me from wearing my new lipsticks (I will start fake tanning If I have to :P) and next week I am going to the hairdresser's for a new colour.

That's all from me for now...
Beatie :)
