Color 101 (part 3)

Part2 (updated)

Let's continue without further ado :)

1. Light Summer
  • Eyes: Blue, gray, green.
  • Hair: Light/medium ash blonde, light/medium ash brown
  • Skin: Pale beige, porcelain, ivory or pink beige (everything pink-tonned)
2. Pure Summer:

  • Eyes: Gray-blue, soft turqoise, hazel.
  • Hair: Light/medium ash brown, may have blond in it.
  • Skin: Light/medium neutral beige, ivory.
 3. Cool Summer:
  • Eyes: Gray, blue.
  • Hair: Medium/rich ash brown, little to no red tones.
  • Skin: Ivory, pink beige, gray beige, neutral beige.

The basic tone of summer types – blue.
The summer tone type gets the tan well (the exception is the extremely light summer skin variants). The skin tint becomes noble, cool olive. Never obtains a red subtone. Moles and freckles (if there are any) always have grey or ash gray hue (no gold or reed-brown tint). Cold pink lips.
Tip for Summers - avoid too dark or black colors when dyeing hair otherwise there will be a rough contrast between your hair and skin tone.

P.S. It was hard as hell to find the right celebrity cause they all wear colored lenses, and have dyed hair, so it may not be as matching to the type as it supposed to, so you should refer to your own specifics more than the pic of celebrity :)

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? :)
