Beachy wavy SEXY hair

Congratulations, the spring has finally arrived! Well it's still a mess outside, but atleast it's oficial springtime :) That's something to be excited about. :)
The sun was shining all day today, and i was dreaming about beach... I live like half an hour  away to from it, so i am a total beach girl. I love it. I love the feeling after going to the beach. You know, salty, nice smelling skin, and nicely curled up messy hair.... My hair in winter time tends to look awful, they become flat, don't hold a curl... They are naturaly straight. So straight that people don't believe that i don't use flatiron to get them look like this.

So I was doing some reasearch today, inspired by my dreams, about how to get a wavy "just from the beach" hair look. I asked a girl at a salon if they do perms to this look. She said no. That didn't upset me too much... I'm a McGyver when it comes to beauty lol. Here's what else you can do to get your hair this nice messy wavy hair effect.
  •  After washing your hair blow dry the roots of your it with your head upside down, using the cool-shot button every few minutes to lock in some volume. Stop when your hair is damp, but not yet fully dry.
  • Spray some salt spray into your palms.You can buy it or make it yourself by adding a few tablespoons of salt(SEASALT not tablesalt!) into the spray bottle of lukewarm water and give it a good shake.The more salt you add, the more crunchy textured, and beach-like your hair will be. If you want to buy it try using  Bumble and Bumble's Surf Spray or John Frieda Beach Blonde Ocean Waves Sea Spray (it smells like coconuts!) These surf sprays are typically more reliable than home-made versions.
  • Run your palms over your hair, starting at the ends. Try not to get any directly on your roots.
  • Divide your hair into a few sections.
  • Starting at the top of your head, twist each section into a loose bun and secure the ends with a bobby pin.
  • Repeat with the remaining sections of hair.

  • Allow your hair to finish drying while twisted up in the buns for about 20 minutes.

  • Take out the bobby pins and finger-comb the waves into place, scrunching from the ends up.

    Use a curling iron to fix pieces that didn't take shape well or give the front sections a more defined wave. To get a relaxed wave rather than a tight curl, don't open the clip on the curling iron. Just twist a piece of hair and manually wrap it around the barrel, holding the ends in place.

    And Voila

    You can go out sporting nice messy sexy look :)

Best and Worst drugstore foundations. Maybelline vs. L'oreal.

I've been using drugstore foundations forever, cause i can't really afford high-end stuff. I'm a grad-student, and  i allready spend all my money on cosmetics. I live in Europe, so stuff like MAC or Lush is non-existant here. Well at least not in my country. (Let's make the "Aaaaaaw..." sound now all together). Let's not make it sound like the edge of the world though, we have kinda everything else here... most of the popular drugstore brands, most of the high end brands... Most of the popular clothing stores....except the Forever 21... (1...2....3... awwwww)
Anyway since i've used almost every drugstore foundation there is i'd liked to share my opinion of which i thought is best and which is.... well let's call it "not-so-much"....

So i'd like to give the name of Best Drugstore foundation to Maybelline's Dream Satin Liquid.
It's cheaper than the foundation that i'd like to call "not-so-much", but it works wo…

The truth behind cheapness of Coastal Scents. Fake MAC.

Since it's April Fool's day what can we found better to talk about but fools? :D
And what if we combine it with our favorite subject - beauty?

One of the reasons why i actually wanted to write about this is because since i do aloooot of research online i found some interesting theories about some famous brands. Well brand to be exact - Coastal Scents. Almost everyone interested in make-up knows this brand and owns their 88 palette. I do to. I bought it from their website directly a while ago. Everything is great. I like the quality, the palette is really well pigmented, it was cheap, i got amazingly kind costumer service (they answered tons of my e-mails very fast)
The question is - why i only had to pay 18 dollars for the whole pallette, when alot of people compare their shadows to MAC brand, which costs 14 dollars per unit. And here i got even 88 different colours. The thing is... everything from Coastal Scents are made in Hong Kong or somewhere near by. It's not being ma…

Louboutin Manicure. Classy or Trashy?

The thing that probably every girl has in her wishlist - a pair of Louboutin high heels with the magic red sole...
I was lying if i'd say i don't want 'em...
Ok, by show of hands who doesn't? 
Ok, either you are shy, or  i was right.
Louboutin's screams "girl power, sexyness, style, class"
...and that you are rich enough to purchase them.
Or you have a rich man beside you...

Anywaaaay, for those of us, who are not su lucky and don't have the possibility to buy them, can try interesting Louboutin manicure. It's simple yet so sophisitcated.
All you have to do is paint your nails in rich black color and paint your undersides ruby red. 
Photo courtesy I did my nails once like this in summer, and got lots of compliments. Thats another thing every girl craves.... So this may be not so perfect for everyday wear, but perfect for a classy night out.  Are you willing to try it until you get your shoes? :)
