I completely forgot about these nail stickers I got from Born Pretty Store (along with all the other nail goodies). Nail polish: Rimmel 60 seconds Mintlicious.

These are the stickers I used. They hold pretty well, just seal with clear nail polish over it, but the edges do start to lift up in a day or two, which I find quite annoying.

Side Bun LOTD

IMG_0770

Don’t you just love it when you have a good make up kind of day? When the eyeliner just comes out perfect? Lol I’d say on fleek but I hate that stupid word!

IMG_0767

I am not sure how I feel about this lip colour. It’s called Pops by NYX and it’s identified as Mauve. It does look like that in a tube but not on lips. It’ s more of  a rosey pink and I think those don’t suit me. So this one is going in the never being worn again pile.

It’s finally end of the week! Thank you Jeeeesus! It was a bun kind of day of course. Who has time to do up their hair on Fridays? lol to work that is.

Quick and simple was today’s theme. I’ve used my BH Cosmetics Smokey Eyes 28 shadow palette.

On my lips is BH Cosmetics Creme Luxe lipstick in Forever Nude. I love how creamy these lipsticks are. Which reminds me that I should visit BH Cosmetics site and place another order. I love their stuff.

Curls and nude face

IMG_0669

I am on day two – almost no make up. Almost being the key word:) I go through these stages time to time where I put on some mascara, a bit of bronzer, a nude lip and out I go.

 

It’s a big deal for me to go out without eyeliner. That is my one staple item. I used to think before I looked vary washed out and half dead without eyeliner but I have since grown up haha and I embrace my natural look.

 

Skin: Vichy dermablend foundation and Revlon’s Highlighting palette in Peach Glow.

Eyes: Too Face Lash Injection Mascara

Lips: Maybelline Pearly Pink

And that is all!

 

My skin has been really bad lately. I’ve had a bad Rosacea flare up that I haven’t had since I got diagnosed 2 years ago. I don’t know if it’s the seasons change but I hope I don’t have to go on antibiotics again. For a second I thought I was getting sick because I felt feverish but nope it was just my face burning!!! Fun times. Then I broke out in bumps all over and the redness is just not going away.

 

This is why I love Vichy so much because in the picture you cannot tell at all, because it gives you great coverage and flawless looking skin.

My friend told me about Olive Leaf supplements that are supposed to be good for rosacea so I am going to buy some and try. I am willing to try anything for clear skin :)

Monday Face (FOTD)

FullSizeRender(1)

Although I try to perk myself up on Mondays as I’d like to get my week off to a bright start and set the tone for the rest of the week, I can’t help but feel miserable when Monday rolls around.  Which means, I’ll wake up throw on anything and run to work with a bun and no make up. So I figured if I look a little better maybe I’ll feel a little better ???

IMG_0603

My skin has been acting up lately. I’m breaking out and it’ s not pimples but the same red bumps I had during my really bad rosacea flare up. It may be the seasons change but thanks to my never failing Vichy dermablend foundation my skin looks flawless :)

Products used:

Eyes: Hard Candy Top Ten Eyeshadow palette in Feelin Blue. It’s a nice metallic palette and while I prefer more muted shaded I do get in the mood wear something extra glittery and sparkly time to time.
I actually applied white shimmery shadow all over and the grey second from left to shade out and depend on how light hits it, it looks brown and maroon too at certain angles.

6a00d834fef85553ef017c35e54731970b-800wi

Lips: Rimmel Innocent lip pencil and MAC Hue lipstick

Skin: Vichy foundation/ Maybelline Master Hi-Lighter in Nude.

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all have a great week.

Many faces of Nina (FOTD)

IMG_0605This little collage sums me up so perfectly. What I mean by that is that I am very versatile when it comes to my look, especially in terms of my make up and hair and literally in 3 days I will wear 3 different looks, nude, hair sleek back, bold lip, hair wild and free! I love changing my looks constantly, because being the same all the time is boring!!!

Look #1

I love how far my hair has come. After being completely dead and fried, curls non existent, I have repaired the damage for the most part. The curls are back for the most part and they are quite manageable.

I love this purple lipstick. It’s bold, unique and out there. This is by NYX from their Macaron lippies collection in Violet. When I wear this lipstick, I usually leave my eyes simple with just some eyeliner and mascara.

Look #2

I’ve put some more red streaks in my hair. Only because I miss my red hair so much and I cannot go back to it as I don’t want to bleach my hair anymore and ruin it yet again but I have the itch!!!! Yup it’s that time again so I did two red streaks underneath and by my ear. I love how it looks when my hair is down and they just peak through or like this, with this high top bun in a half up/down style where you can really see them.

Here my make up is also kept simple. Maybelline gel eyeliner, L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara and on my lips is Rimmel’s All you need is pink rush balm.

Btw – I have no idea why my one eye looks smaller than the other!

FullSizeRender(1)Look #3

I went with more of a natural/nude look here but I actually will do a separate post on this as I took more detailed photos and used more products so check it out !
