Part 1 - Basic Colour Theory
Part 2 - Colour Analysis. Spring
Part 3 - Summer
Part 4 - Autumn

Tam ta da daaaaam!
This is the last episode of the drawn-out series about colour theory.
I am going to show you the last type of the colour analysis type - winter and a little summary in the end, cause i saw that it was hard for you guys to determine which of the type are you.

Grab a mirror and let's go!

1. Deep Winter

  • Eyes: Black, black-brown, dark hazel.
  • Hair: Black-brown, medium brown, gray.
  • Skin: Black, medium beige, black-brown, olive with no pink or peach undertones.
2.Light Winter
  • Eyes: Bright blue, hazel, green.
  • Hair: Black, chestnut, medium brown or dark brown.
  • Skin: Black, deep brown, neutral beige, pale olive, milky (even transluscent) white.

3. Cold Winter:
  • Eyes: Charcoal gray, blue, dark brown.
  • Hair: Blue-black, silverish, no red tones.
  • Skin: Cool brown, olive, neutral beige.

Let’s imagine the situation that you can’t determine the color type you are.
The most contradicting fact is that you can see more or less pronounced contrast between the skin, hair and iris within one season type as far as every type has both delicate, light and saturated, dark hues.

Spring season type with golden dark tints in skin and hair can easily resort to the light nuances of the fall type in wardrobe and make up. And visa versa, one with tender and pale skin fall type can go perfect with soft and subdued tones of spring palette.Something similar happens to the summer type dark tints that can be quite good with delicate hues of winter palette. And – as a very rare exception to the rule – strongly pronounced winter type with rich strong contrast of the skin, hair and eyes color can make use of lively nuances of spring palette.

Remeber that you shouldn't match photos of celebrities with your skin/eyes/hair colour 100%. I was only able to found more or less fitting examples to the type. :)

Also, remember that the colors in my sample charts are not an all-inclusive list of the colors that will work for you, but they are some of the best colors that you should definitely try to incorporate into your wardrobe.
Even just a few new tops in those colors will make a huge difference.
Also, you may fit into a couple different categories. That’s okay, it’s normal and no big deal. The seasons are just supposed to give you a general idea of your colors – they’re not supposed to be strict rules that you need to follow religiously.
If you try on some clothes in your colors, you’ll quickly learn that wearing the right colors makes a huge difference in the way you look. I suggest you to experiment with different shades and see which ones look best on you, as well as which ones you like the most! Then buy these colors up whenever you spot them in stores. You can print your colors out and take it shopping with you, so you’ll always have your  at hand :)

That was insane amount of research i had to do for these series, but it was soo much fun!

What type did you turned out to be? 
Maybe you've even already tried some of your type colors in make-up or clothes? Share!

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…
