Nail of the day: "Nude Sparkle"

I am wearing "Barefoot in barcelona" with "Save me" as a top coat. I love this combo so much, it is the perfect mix between edgy and classic.

Mac naturally collection review

I think this collection hit austrian stores one or two weeks ago and i just HAD to buy something of it. The two things i purchased are the mineralized blush in the shade "Subtle breeze" and the mineralized eyeshadow in "Cloudy afternoon".

"Subtle breeze" is a light plumy pink that is really pigmented and applies really smooth. It feels really light and silky on my skin and is a really nice every day neutral colour.

And of course i had to buy a mineralized eyeshadow because shimmery eyeshadows are kind of my thing. :) This is probably the most talked about product eye shadow from this collection. In the pan it looks green, blue, ivory and even pink. When you swatch it, it is a gorgeous frosty silvery taupe colour that is the purrrr-fect winter.

PS: i also thought about buying the "Blonde" mineralized skin finish but it turned out to be too shimmery as a blush and too pink as a highlight... Anyways, i LOVE this collection and i am sooooo glad i got those two items, i couldn't be happier :)

Powdery pastels and retro looks for spring!!

The new ad campains from louis vuitton and prada show us the two new trends of spring/summer 2012: Retro and pastels. Which is exactly what i LOVE. After the last louis vuitton collection, some people might think that the retro trend is done, done and DONE, but that is wrong. Prada and louis vuitton surprise us with "pin up" makeup and hair, fresh mint (my favourite colour for spring), baby pink and powdery lemon shades, ice cream, flowers, feathers and a new lighter version of the iconic louis vuitton purse. That feels like a breeze of fresh air! Even though i could never afford ANY of this stuff it is still a great inspiration for creating my own spring looks! So what do you think about pastels and retro?
