Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

A natural look for the day

A natual look for the day. 

 
As girls, we have fun playing around with clothes and shoes, and naturally we do the same with make up. It is not only fun to try new and different colors but make up also help us to accentuate our natural beauty.  Even a touch of make up makes us feel glamourous. 
 
When it comes to daytime make up, I strongly recommend to follow the premise of "less is more". It does not matter how old you are, too much make up, can and will, make you look older. For day time the best tip I can give you is try to replicate the colors you would have after exercising or being for a while under the Sun. The heat increases blood flow to the skin giving a nice pink color to your lips and cheeks.
 
Observe the colors you get after any of those activities and use a blush, lipstick or lipgloss that are one or two shades above your natural color. To complete your day make up, you can use eyeshadows in soft tones as pink, peach or light brown, and one to two coats of mascara.
 
If you would like to have a more sun-kissed look, use a blush that has a little bit of gold shimmer or a bronzer. Like this trio of blush, bronzer and shimmer powder from Estee Lauder. From left to right the colors are: Signature Powder Blush in Radian Peach, Bronze Goddess Soft Matte Bronzer and Shimmer Powder in Rose Pearl
 
For the cheeks and lips you can use one of these colors from MAKE UP FOR EVER. 
 
These blushes are cream based, to apply them use a sponge or your fingertips. They are really pigmented, be careful and apply it little by little until you reach the desired amount of color. 
 
If your skin has a warm undertone (yellow, olive or gold and you tan but not burn under the sun) use the darker shade.
HD Microfinish blush in color: 2 Caught in the Act.
If your skin has a cold undertone (pink, blue, green and you burn first and then tan) use the lighter shade.
HD Microfinish blush in color:  4 Walk of Shame.
 
When it comes to the lipgloss,it is basically sheer and its primary function is to add shine to your lips, therefore you can either follow the undertone rule or experiment a bit more with color.
 
The lighter color is Lab Shine Lip Gloss D10 Shimmering Fresh Pink.
The darker color is Lab Shine Lip Gloss D22 Shimmering Papaya.
