Good day everyone! As a loyal fan of a dramatic smoky eye and it`s variations I know the importance of a good eyeshadow. You can create the most beautiful smoky eye makeup using only one shade, if your eyeshadow is well - pigmented and perfectly blends on the skin. MAC single eyeshadow in shade `Beauty Marked` is a perfect companion of any dramatic look, so let`s find out how good is this product in action!

`Beauty Marked` by MAC is matte black eyeshadow with a fine red glitter. It is not very pigmented, so I prefer to use it over a good eyeshadow primer or black eye kohl. The texture is a little bit chunky and dry, but the finish is bold and sophisticated. On the official MAC Cosmetics website `Beauty Marked` single eyeshadow is described as a black - red color with pear sparkles and velvet finish. However, the color looks a little bit different than in the pan, it is less sparkly and the color is more on a purple side than red. 

Overall, I really loved `Beauty Marked` - the formulation of this eyeshadow is great, it is easy to blend and it is very long lasting. To tell the truth, I expected a bigger punch of a color, but with a decent eyeshadow primer the color pay off is quite good and I haven`t experienced any fall out. Each single eyeshadow by MAC carries 1.3 g / 0.04 oz of a product and retails at $16, you can check out the full information other MAC products on the official website here. Thank you so much for reading my review, I`ll talk to you very soon!

Lots of love,

Hi everyone! Creating a beautiful and neat winged eyeliner can be very tricky at times, especially for beginners. There are tons of step by step makeup tutorial with detailed instructions that teach us easy ways to do winged eyeliner. For instance,  lately a bobby pin eyeliner hack went viral on Instagram and Facebook. That`s why today I wanted to try out this eyeliner cheat myself and find out if it really works.

1. All you need to put on an eyeliner with a help of poppy pin is a liquid or cream eyeliner and a bobby pin. If your pin is flat on the end, try to bend the ends away from each other, creating a larger angle.

2. Start by applying your makeup - fill in your eyebrows, prime the eyelids and apply eyeshadow. Skip mascara and false eyelashes, it is better to finish this step after the eyeliner.

3. Apply a small amount of liquid or cream eyeliner on the end of your bobby pin, this trick will also work with a highly pigmented eyeshadow and even eye kohl. 

4. Lightly lay a bobby pin on the outer corner of your eye, the line should be heading in the general direction of the end of your eyebrow. The straight part of a pin goes on the bottom lash and angled part to the top lash line.

5. Finish the winged eyeliner makeup by filling in the triangle. Use a black eye kohl to fill in the gaps between the lashes and to tight line the waterline.

That`s how you create a winged eyeliner makeup with a help of a bobby pin. I liked how this trick works, the finished look is neat and pretty. If you messed up the process you can always clean the lines with a help of concealer. Please let me know in the comments if you have tried a bobby pin eyeliner hack yourself or maybe you have a better eyeliner tips.

How To Cure Dry Skin? | Skin Care Tips & Remedies

| on
Saturday, May 20, 2017
maple holistics liz breygel beauty skin care lifestyle blogger

With the sudden weather and temperature change my skin tends to suffer from dehydration, dullness and mild irritations. Sometimes the situation can get even worse after a hot shower and a usage of shower gels and cleansing products on a daily basis. The only thing that seems to fix the problem and revitalize the skin is a special skin care routine for dry skin. Today I wanted to share with you some simple tips and remedies, that help me to keep my skin healthy and hydrated.

Change Your Routine

First of all you need to find a reason why your skin suffers from dehydration. Harsh water, soaps, drying facial cleansers can cause dry and itchy skin. Are you drinking enough water? The health authorities commonly recommend eight 8-ounce glasses, which equals about 2 liters of fresh and clean water per day. Keeping the water balance is essential for glowing skin and don`t forget about healthy diet. Feed your skin with a diet that includes dark chocolate, salmon, and other fatty fish, oranges, mangoes, and carrots.

UV Protection


Dry and damaged skin can`t protect itself from from the harmful effects of UV rays. Do not forget to get a nice sunscreen, that will gently care about your skin, ensuring long-lasting and strong protection from the sun. Ever heard about all natural sunscreen? I was shocked when I found out that a sunscreen can contain only natural ingredients and still prevent sunburns and skin damage. For instance Natural Sunscreen by Maple Holistics contains only Aloe, Cocoa Butter and water, but does it`s job perfectly!

Natural Oils

For the best result try to apply a generous amount of natural oil on your skin right after the bath or shower. Don`t dry the skin with a towel, but instead apply an oil directly on a wet skin. Applying natural oils creates a special seal that prevents moisture and vitamins from escaping. Natural oils, including almond, coconut, avocado and jojoba not only help your skin to stay hydrated, but also nourish it with a huge amount of vitamins.

For the days when my skin feels especially dry and dull I like to use a Pure Apricot Oil* by Maple Holistics. Apricot Oil is one of the best remedies that helps to cure dry skin. It is rich with Antioxidants, Omega-6 Fatty Acids and Vitamins A,B,C & E - essentials elements for a helthy and smooth skin. Apricot Oil (also called apricot kernel oil) is a very thin and lightweight product, that`s why it absorbs deeply into the skin, nourishing it from the inside. Unlike other oils I`ve used before, Pure Apricot Oil by Maple Holistics does not clog my skin and does not live greasy residue. It has no additives and a special cold-press extraction method allows for more vitamins and minerals to remain in the final product. Paula Begoun, an author of a famous best seller “The Complete Beauty Bible,” mentions in her book that a pure apricot oil has a lipid content very similar to our skin. That`s why when the skin is dry, itchy and irritated, apricot kernel oil helps to reestablish lipid amount, healing and soothing the skin.

Exfoliate

Dehydrated skin tends to get sore, tight and patchy. Even though exfoliation can be uncomfortable at this period, it is very important to find a mild exfoliator that will remove dry patches and revitalize the skin. There are plenty of skin scrubs on a beauty market, but you can also find good remedies right at your kitchen or local grocery store. Add a little bit of a fine oat meal to your Greek yogurt or avocado and you good to go! Yogurt will gently cleanse the skin with a help of lactic acid and avocado will moisturize it. Learn how to make your own Avocado Face Mask according to your skin type here.

Lots of love,

Lime Crime, the Vegan and cruelty-free beauty company has recently launched a brand new highlighter palette, inspired by opalescent stones, mystical unicorns and holographic rainbow. And today I`m super excited to review it for you! Highlighting palette by Lime Crime comes in a very pretty cardboard holographic packaging with magnetic closure. If you are holosexual and love all things opalescent, you will fall in love with the it! I can`t stop admiring the design of the packaging, even though I`m not a big fan of holo.

Hi Lite `Opals` Palette features a trio of mesmerizing highlighting powders to fit every skin complexion. The official names of the colors are - Pink, Gold and Peach. The colors are very beautiful, but I can`t say that they are unique. I`m sure these shades are already been released by other makeup brands before. All three colors are iridescent, they beautifully reflect the light thanks to the tiny sparkly particles. I like that `Opals` doesn’t cake or flake during the day and it doesn`t accentuate large pores and fine lines. My skin is pretty pale and it tends to look grey and dull with highlighter on it,  but not when I`m using this highlighter palette for unicorns ♥‿♥

The formula of all three colors is very smooth and silky, the colors are easily glide on the skin and seamlessly blend into the skin. If you like your highlighter to be bold and blinding you can build in the color by applying more coats of a the product. Lime Crime claims that these colors adapt to your skin tone and last all day long. I like to dust a small amount of the powder on the highest point of my face - under the brow bone, above my cheekbones, on the bridge of my nose and a bit on my chin. For the brightest results try to use this palette over a primer or foundation - it will make the product to stand out more.

To every fan of strobing trend and unicorns I will definitely recommend to try out this palette. It is available on the official Lime Crime website in two different versions - cold `Opals` (pink/gold/peach) and a warmer version `Blossoms` (warm gold/lavender/sunset). Both of these palettes are non greasy or gliterry, so if you have an oily skin type, you will also appreciate this palettes. Thank you so much for reading my blog post, don`t forget to shine bright and unleash your inner mystical unicorn  

What is your favorite highlighter at the moment?
Lots of love,
Liz

Hi everyone, how do you feel today?  I have a brand circle lens review for all of you today  and they were sent to me by lovely store by Maple Lens - a Malaysia based online store specializing in providing colored contact lenses and other products. Today I want to talk about Joypop Sweetheart 3 tone Green* circle lens, that provide an awesome enlargement effect and perfectly blend into a natural iris color. These are my second pair of lenses that I have received from Maple Lens. You can check the first review that I did for them here! these dolly eye lenses came in a cute pink drawstring bag made of the softest velvety material and you will also receive a cute circle lens case to store your lens. 

Pattern & Enlargement

My eyes are naturally dark brown and there is a black ring of color around the iris. Joypop Sweetheart Green Lenses beautifully blend with my natural eye color, so I can definitely recommend it for everyone who has brown and green eyes. Green and black pattern reminds me of a watermelon -vivid and bold, but at the same time they aren`t unnatural. And the enlargement effect is just crazy! EOS Green circle lenses have 14,8 mm diameter and the make my eyes appear super big and dolly. 

Comfort 

These are an everyday circle lenses, so they are lightweight and thin. I haven`t experienced any discomfort or redness while using Joypop Sweetheart Green circle lenses. They are super soft, and even though my eyes tend to get a little bit dry, few drops of a moisturizing eye drops help to solve this issue. I experienced a mild difficulty while trying to apply and remove them, but it is just because of their large diameter. 

Overall

Joypop circle lenses are adorable and they make my eyes look huge and cute. I love how they blend in with my natural eye color and how they feel. If you are into `living doll` like eyes, you will definitely love these circle lenses. And as a person who loves to try new stuff and experiment with appearance I really loved wearing these lenses. Don`t forget to check out the whole Sweetheart Tone series on  the official Maple Lens website. Hugs and kisses 

Lots of love,
