Cheap eyeshadows? Sure, why not!

Last friday I did my friends make-up for some party she was going to. She almost never uses make up. Even mascara! She's one of those lucky gals who looks good without it. I hate her for that.
So, she asked me if i do her make up, cause she's not good at it. She was very surprised when she saw herself in the mirror (i wouldn't let her watch while i was doing her, cause i didn't want to jinx the special extreme makeover "OH MY GOD! I'M SO PRETTY" moment).
So here's the final result:


All the shadows used are just simple drugstore brands. And one shadow is from Avon. 

The violet-pinkish color in the crease is from Artdeco shadows - No95. My friend got it for me to try and I didn't really like it. It's too dusty.So when you tap it off the brush everything falls down :/ But when you finaly manage to pick up some of it - the color is well pigmented and blends out really well. So... i have mixed feelings about this one lol.
 
The grey which is used on the lid is avon color trend duo eyshadow in color Snow Storm. I can tell I am a little surprised by this shadow. As you can see i've been using alot of it. As an eyshadow which is as cheap as this one - it works well. The pigmentation is not so good(it doesn't come off on the lid as it looks in the pot as you can see), but it's definetly usable. I like to use the white(it's actually not white it's alittle darker than white) as a highlight. It's not so bright as tidy white -it's perfect for it.


Aaaaand  to brighten all the look i added just a tad of essence duo eyshadow in Newcomer. I used the black on the outer corners and blent it out. And blent it... and blent it...
All black colors are just a pain in the...
Yeah...
I just don't know how to use them lol. And i used the tidy white for the highlight... As you can see - i was tired from blending in the black, so i didn't blend the highlight well....Oh well....



So using basicaly just 3 colors you can pull of something like this:
 
Not THAT bad :)

Best beauty remedies form the nature - COFEE GROUNDS

Awhile ago i've read somewhere a big article about how to use leftover coffee grounds to figth cellulite and ever since then it was stuck in my head. You know, how coffe grounds are useful only for fortune tellers and for war with the orange peel skin on tushy. Boy was i wrong! It is amazing how much the mother nature can offer us - beauty product junkies. To get an amazing beauty remedy for anything you can possibly think of, you don't need to do much or pay more than a.. dollar/euro (this is how i imagine a cup of coffee costs.... lol) So i put together a list of ways of how to use almighty coffee grounds and tried them all, so let's see the results!

This is how my obssesion with coffee grounds started. I was visiting my grandmother for a few days and she noticed how i wash my hair almost OR every single day. I had to sit down with her and listen to a looooong moral about how it's unhealthy for the hair and yada yada yada... So -  ok -  i said, - they get oily really …

Off topic - relationships! I am sure i am not the only one!?

I have huge fear - i am affraid to appear too clingy. I am not affraid to show my affection to someone, but i don't ever want to be the one, who takes the first step. The first step not necceserily means going to a guy i like and expressing this to him, but i hate being the one, who texts or e-mails first. God forbid be the one who asks a GUY out. I could know, that this particular guy REALLY likes me, and i won't be turned down, i still hate taking the first step. Do you have the same feeling? Like, i want to talk to someone, but i have this ugly feeling in my stomach, that maybe he is busy and i'll be bothering him and he won't, say, text back and then i feel that i lost my... quality? my secrecy.. i don't even know how to put it, but i am sure you all understand it. This especialy is a big problem in the beggining of love affairs. How do i let a guy know that i like him? (This is rethorical question)

So let's call my complex A Princess complex, because i feel…
