Ombre Lips, Gradient Lips liz breygel blogger tutorial step by step makeup plump full kylie jenner

One of my favourite lip makeup is an ombre or gradient lips. It is so easy and fast to create an ombre lip look and the variations are endless, you can combine any colour you want the result will always be outstanding! I was in my favourite gothic mood while creating this tutorial, so the look turned out to be a bit grunge and glam at the same time. And by the way it was also inspired by a famous bjd doll makeup look, but I hope you will like it!

Follow these simple steps to achieve the Black and Venomous Ombre Lips, I hope my step by step tutorial will make the process even more easy.

Ombre Lips, Gradient Lips liz breygel blogger tutorial step by step makeup plump full kylie jenner

1. Exfoliate and moisturize your lips,  prime them with a help of your foundation and a sponge or a beauty blender. 

2. Line your lips with a nude matte lip pencil, creating a desired shape and fullness. Fill in the lips with the same lip pencil.

3. Blend out the lines, making them soft and natural. You can use your finger or a synthetic brush for this step.

4. Start to fill in the inside part of your lips with a black matte pencil, blend out the edges with a finger. Transition between the black and nude pencils should be soft and smoky. 

5. To intensify the blackness add few black lines with a help of gel or cream eyeliner. Blend it as well.

6. To finish the whole ombre lip look dab a drop of shiny lip gloss on your lips and you`re done! 

That`s all ladies, five minutes and your ombre lips look beautiful and elegant. You can add a pinch of glitter to make your lips look even more interesting. I hope my little tutorial was useful, I`ll talk to you very soon again :*

Tiramisu is a popular coffee - flavoured Italian dessert, from Italian  meaning `lift me up`, exactly what we all need when the weather outside is terribly hot and stuffy. It takes about one hour to make a huge Family Size Portion of this dessert, but you can make a little one in no time!

I took a traditional Tiramisu recipe and slightly upgraded it for my own taste, for example in the original recipe ladyfinger is soaked in a mix of  Amaretto and cooled espresso and I`ve decided to skip alcohol for my Tiramisu. I did not specify how much mascarpone and other ingredients you`ll need to take - take the quantity that will satisfy your family. By the way you can substitute mascarpone with a sour cream, Greek yogurt or cottage cheese (vegan substitutions are non-dairy cream cheese, tofu and cashew puree). And if you are not a big fan of peach use any other fruit (banana, pineapple) or your favourite berries (raspberry or strawberry). Let`s start!


Ingredients

• Savoiardi Biscuits (Ladyfinger)
• Mascarpone
• 2 Peaches 
• Powdered Sugar
• 2 Eggs 
• Cooled Espresso
• Cocoa Powder or Chocolate Shavings - for decoration 

- To start you`ll need to separate egg yolks from the egg whites and whip them also separately. Add a pinch of salt to the whites, this will make them grow faster and easier. Yolks whip with a powdered sugar, until thick and pale in color. 

- Now it is time to mix yolks and whites together with mascarpone.

- In a separate bowl start to soak savoiardi biscuits (ladyfingers) and you can already start to arrange soaked ladyfingers close to each other in rows, until the bottom of the pan will be completely covered with ladyfingers. 

- Slice peaches and put them on a top of ladyfingeres, cover them with a generous coat of mascarpone. Smooth the coat with rubber spatula or a wide spoon. Create another layer and another layer, slowly building your future Tiramisu. 

- After everything is done put the dessert in the freezer for few hours, or the whole night. Before eating decorate it with cocoa powder or chocolate shavings and everything is done! 

I`ve never done cooking posts on my blog before, but to be honest always wanted to write one for you. Please let me know in comments if you liked it and if you find cooking posts interesting and useful for you, I`m excited to hear your opinion. See you all very soon, hugs and kisses ♥

Bon Appetit!

Lots of love,

Avon Nutra Effects Micellar Cleansing Water / Review

Tuesday, July 19, 2016
Micellar water avon review blogger liz breygel skin care blogger buy online
Micellar water avon review blogger liz breygel skin care blogger buy online

Micellar water is one of the most incredible beauty products ever invented and there are a lot of reasons why we should substitute an oil based makeup removers with this magical solution. Originally Micellar water was created in 90s in France, to help women deal with a harsh water in regions. Some people claim that micellar water can replace the whole skin care routine and tons of expensive skin care product we like to use on a daily basis.

I was running out of my Balea Nourishing Facial Toner that I liked to use as a regular makeup remover and decided to do a test drive of a super popular Avon Nutra Effects Micellar Cleansing Water. I`ve heard a mixed reviews on this product, some people hated the smell of it, but despite of all the negativity around this product I wanted to try it out myself and share my thought with you.

Avon Nutra Effects Micellar Cleansing Water comes in a regular clear plastic bottle and contains 200 ml (about 6.8 oz) of a solution. The product itself is free of soap, parabens, coloring and any fake fragrances. The list of ingredients is terrific, especially for those who like their cosmetics to be natural. Avon Micellar Water formula mostly consists of a flower and seed extracts (like Honeysuckle Extract, Sunflower Seed Extract, Salvia Hispanica Seed Extract) and this explains it`s weird medical fragrance. I can`t say I`m a big fan of the scent, but it does not bother me at all, I simply don`t mind it.

Micellar Water by Avon is suitable for all skin types, it does not cause allergic reaction or irritation. It never leaves any sticky residue on my skin and perfectly removes all the makeup of my skin, even the waterproof cream eyeliner was easily removed with a help of this product. The Avon Nutra Effects Micellar Water is not exactly a dupe of a famous Bioderma Sensibio H2O, bu the formula is close enough, so you can easily substitute these products. At the moment it retails for $ 3.15 and I think it is a very budget friendly product. I will definitely repurchase it in the future again :)

What is your favorite Micellar Water?

Lots of love,
Liz

Balea Refreshing Cleansing Gel / Review

liz breygel balea dm skin care Balea Erfrischendes Waschgel review vegan beauty blog

When I finished my Stemology Cell Refresh Hydrating Cleanser (review) I wanted to try out something new and different. And as I have promised a million years ago today I`m finally going to review Balea Erfrischendes Waschgel or Refreshing Cleansing Gel by one of the most popular European brand Balea. This brand develops a whole bunch of budget friendly skin care cosmetics and makeup products and it is widely famous in Germany, Austria, Hungary and other countries.

Balea Erfrischendes Waschgel is a very basic cleanser it does not have fancy packaging or expensive ingredients, but I was very excited to try it out. I have a dry skin type, but time to time evem the most dry skin needs a special care, especially when the weather is hot and sunny. The cleanser was formulated for normal and combined skin types but it is good enough for sensitive skin as well, because it doesn`t dry the skin. I still prefer to use a little bit  of moisturizer after I wash my face, but even if I skip this step my skin doesn`t feel tight and uncomfortable. 

There are many nice ingredients in this product I`ve never seen before in a cleanser such as lotus blossom and a bamboo extract, both of them help to maintain natural PH balance of the skin. Provitamin B5 together with our favourite well known glycerin prevents the loss of the moisture from the skin. The scent of the cleanser is very nice and mild, it is something between wooden and floral fragrance, I like it a lot.

I really like to use this gel on a daily basis, it does not dry or irritates it and I just love how fresh and clean the skin feels after the wash. Balea Refreshing Cleansing Gel retails for 0,95€ (a little bit more than $1) and you`ll receive 150 ml of this product for the price. It is the best and the cheapest washing gel I ever tried in my life, so I definitely recommend you to give this cleanser a try. See you all soon <3

What is your favourite cleansing gel at the moment?

Lots of love,
Liza

Important Hair Care Tips You`ve Never Heard Before

Monday, July 11, 2016
new interesting hair care tips for long beautiful hair liz breygel
new interesting hair care tips for long beautiful hair liz breygel

Water is life

The first thing ever touches your head skin and your hair after you enter the shower or dive into the bath tube is the water. And what is important for your hair and skin to stay healthy is the quality of this water and the temperature. And please girls take it serious. I want to share with you a little story from my life. Once I was on the sea side on a vacation, in the town that was in a mountain area. The water was very heavy, full of different salts, minerals and metals. Even the best hair treatment cosmetics couldn`t save your hair from such a strong water influence. So what I want to suggest if you have a heavy water running in your area is to install some water filter in the shower. It will make such a big difference to your hair and skin condition.

The second matter is the water temperature. The healthy skin of your head provides healthy hair roots so it is important to set water temperature to the optimal. We don`t want the skin neither to burn, nor to freeze it. Keep the balance, it is the key to the shiny and strong hair.

Hair Care Routine

You don`t need to spend a fortune to keep your hair in a good condition. There are so many cheap, but really amazing hair treatment cosmetics you can find in your closest drugstores. You can try them and find the best for your taste and budget. If you are a fan of handmade cosmetics there are tons of recipes that really work! The only few rules I have for all these hair treats is to be well done and made of fresh and good quality products. And don`t forget the routine means to repeat it with a frequency. Once per day or twice a week, create your personal schedule that will work for you and your hair, just don`t forget to keep up with your personal routine.

Protection

It is not important where do we live, weather could be real cruel to our appearance sometimes. This rule is very simple, but not all of us the girls like follow it. We need to protect our head from the rough sun lights and cold wind and snow. And the best way to do this is to wear a hat, cap or a scarf. Girls, just care with you something to protect you from the hot and cold. We don`t want to get sick, and it is not fun for our hairs health as well. I think that everyone needs to follow this rule, especially girls with a thin hair, like myself, because the thinner is the hair, the less protected is the skin on the head. Don`t forget to use special products, that will protect your hair from the high temperature, if you use flat iron or blow dry your hair frequently. 

Pillow Case

Sounds kind strange, isn`t it? You might think it is not important, but did you ever heard how Marilyn Monroe went to bed? Absolutely naked, she just put on a drop of her her favourite perfume – Chanel # 5. And the reason she did that, is because she liked to sleep on a silky bad sheets. Silk softly exfoliates the dead skin and hair cells, leaving them healthy and shiny. I know that silk is an expensive material, but if you`ll just buy one pillow case you`ll not pay so much. And I`m almost sure, that you can substitute a natural silk with a different similar material, like satin.

And don`t forget to wash it frequently, especially if you have some issues with you hair condition, like oily skin, dry patches or you are a big lover of natural masks and oils. A pillow case should always be fresh and clean. If you have an allergy on the rough chemicals we usually use to wash the bad sheets, choose a natural products instead. 


Hair Brush

And again it is absolutely not important how expensive is your hair tools, important is the quality and how they work with your hair. Try to choose brushes, which don`t hurt your skin, but massage it gently. Hair brushes made of natural materials prevent electrification of your hair. If not, I know that there are some plastic brushes which were processed with a special liquids.

Keep your brushes and hair tools clean. Try to get used and clean your brush every time after you comb your hair. Skin oil, broken hairs and skin patches is the best nourishment for bacteria, fungus and even insects. And we definitely don`t want them to start living on our heads. Wash your brushes under the steam of a hot water and with a soap, time to time sterilize them with an alcohol.

Fighting Against Split Ends

I know that everyone falls for those TV commercials – buy our magic product and heel your split ends. Girls, let`s don't lie to ourselves. Split ends were damaged physically, there is no such power in the world, that can glue them back again. But, we can make them look and feel better! The first step to a soft hair tips is a hair care routine we talked before. After my last ammonia hair dye I burned my hair very much. My 30 cm tips from 60 cm of hair length were almost dead. It took me like a 6 months of oil treatment to make them soft again. Obviously my hair tips still looked dry and felt not healthy, when I took a shower (you know that feeling when you wash your hair with the shampoo, but not put on conditioner yet, I hope I`m not the only one!) So take your time girls, be patient if you have some hair problems, they are solvable.

The second step to the healthy hair tips is the systematic hair cut. Don`t worry girls, I know it sounds painful, but it worth the result. Just sacrifice 1 or 2 centimeters every few months and you`ll notice a huge difference.

If you are an owner of a long, very long or a super long hair and you feel that your hair keeps getting a split ends, even though you don`t dye it and give them a minimum of a physical damage the reason for this problem could be just one. Your hair is too long and your body can`t nourish it from the roots to the ends by itself. Deep conditioning, oil treatment and a balanced diet should help you with this.

Wash Them Frequently

This tip I actually got from an actual trichologist, I was a strong believer in a myth that the less we wash, tease and bother our hair, the less we can damage it. Ah, how wrong I was! One of the main reasons why our hair starts to fall out is a natural hair oil that clogs the pores of the skin. The less we wash our hair, the more clogged are the pores. Hair stops to receive a nourishment and dies. So don`t be afraid to wash it once per few days. 

And what is your favourite hair care tip?


Lots of love,
Liza

Tarte Energy Lip Duo / Review & Swatches

Hi everyone, few days ago I`ve received a lovely present by one of my favourite beauty platforms Glam Express. Last month I`ve become a Spotlight Member of the month on the website and won the Tarte Energy Lip Duo .There are two products in the Tarte Energy Lip Duo set - Deluxe Skintuitive Cheek Stain in Energy (0.17 oz) and Deluxe Lip Surgence Skintuitive Lip Gloss in Energy (0.05 oz). Both products have a lovely girly design and thanks to their miniature packaging they are travel friendly and they have a special place in my bag now.


I`ve never had a cheek stain before, even thought I have a dry skin on my cheeks and creamy textures are perfect for skin like mine, I`ve never considered to purchase one. Tarte Energy Cheek Stain comes in a shape of a stick that looks like an oversized lip balm, it is very comfortable to apply the stain directly from the packaging, or with a help of fingers. The cheek stain looks almost transparent, but when applied on the skin it leaves a very dewy pinkish finish, that looks amazingly natural. I have a pale complexion and it is very simple for me to overplay with the intensity of my blush, but with the Tarte Energy Stain I`m not afraid to look like a clown. The shade called `Energy` is more on a cold side, so it will look awesome on the girls with cold skin undertone and dark hair.

The formula is flattering, more than I ever wanted from a simple blusher, it applies smoothly like a charm , leaving the skin moisturized, tinted and fresh looking. The colour intensity is buildable, but I like it more when it`s sheer, than strong. And one of my favourite parts - it has a light minty scent, but don`t worry it is not overwhelming, you won`t notice the fragrance on the skin. If applied on a foundation or a primer, the shade will last almost the whole day. I do not set the cheek stain with a powder, but if your skin is oily, or tends to get oily when the weather outside is hot, you can set the blusher with a small amount of translucent powder, it won`t affect the intensity of this lovely shade.


I fell in love with this product right after I opened it for the first time. Probably it was it`s sweet scent of a confectionery or the terrific glossy finish, that I can only compare to Mac Clear Lipglass, it is hard to tell now. But I was definitely impressed with the Skintuitive Lip Gloss by Tarte. Brand claims that skintuitive formula responds to your skin’s natural PH and energy giving you a personalized tint that is truly your own unique shade of pink. Thanks to this magic ability the shade complements every skin tone and will fit anyone. On my lips `Energy` has a sheer pinkish shade,it looks almost transparent, but it is pretty close to the shade of the cheek stain. 

Tarte formulated the Lip Surgence to moisturize and care about the gentle lips` skin, they powered the formula with Vitamin E, that have a preservative abilities, jojoba seed oil to make the lips soft and smooth and a flower extract for a healthy skin.

To wind up my review, I would like to mention that both of the products are simply amazing, they have a great caring ingredients and were formulated without parabens, sulfates or phthalates. Tarte did an amazing job developing these jems and I want to recommend them for all of you and to thank once again to Glam Express for letting me try out these products. See you all very soon :*

Lots of love,
Liza

100% Pure Konjac Angel Cloth / Review

100% Pure Konjac Angel Cloth the original sponge konjac konjak review how to use liz breygel

100% Pure Konjac Angel Cloth the original sponge konjac konjak review how to use liz breygel
100% Pure Konjac Angel Cloth the original sponge konjac konjak review how to use liz breygel
About a year ago I was lucky enough to try out and fall in love with the Konjac Facial Sponge - probably one of the best skin care product, that was developed to gently exfoliate sensitive facial skin and remove the oil and dirt of the pores. So when the Konjac Sponge Co proposed me to try out their new award winning product with a beautiful and sweet name Angel Cloth, I couldn`t hold my excitement and was counting the days till it`s arrival.

The 100% Pure Konjac Angel Cloth* comes in a big plastic packaging that protects the cloth from the damage, because it is so easy to ruin it while dry. As any other product by this brand the Angel Cloth is made of volcanic plant called Konjac Potato or Konnyaku, it is free of any chemicals, colouring, additives and irritants, which may harm our gentle facial skin or trigger an allergic reaction. The Angel Cloth arrives dry, so before starting to use it you`ll need to hydrate the cloth in warm or cold water. You can also add a drop of your favourite cleanser if you like it foamy ;) I`ll be honest with you, when the angel cloth touches the skin it is the best feeling ever, I could rub my face all day long! Konjac fibers gently exfoliate the skin, removing dry skin cells and refreshing it`s look.

Don`t forget that Angel Cloth is made 100 % of natural plant, it is very gentle and easy to damage, so make sure to take a good care of the cloth to make it last longer. After the usage rinse your sponge again and let it dry in a nicely ventilated place. I would not recommend you to let the cloth in a bathroom, the mold can simply destroy it.

100% Pure Konjac Angel Cloth retails for  £12.99 ($17.24) and you can order it right away from the official Konjac Sponge Co website, they have more awesome products to choose from on their website for every skin type and condition. All the product are hand made and tested for purity, so when you are using product by Konjac Sponge Co, you can be sure that your skin will receive the softest and purest care. Thank you very much for reading my review, I hope it will be useful for some of you, see you soon :*

Lots of love,
Liza
