MAC studio fix line review

I’ve been wanting to try MAC’s makeup line for quite some time now. While browsing their website I found that studio fix fluid fond de teint was the makeup that would fit best my criteria.
I began using the makeup and the powder plus foundation in the middle of August. I instantly noticed how easily I could apply it and of course how well it would last for many hours! At first I got the C4,5 which is a bit dark,as my skin was still suntanned! Now I use the C3,5 and usually mixing it a bit with the old one to create a more natural color!
I have to tell you that for me this line can only be compared to the Dermablend line from Vichy! From all the makeups I’ve tried over the years these two are the only ones that provide good coverage but also benefit the skin as they don’t damage it at all!

My future addition to this line would be the mist and fix from MAC, which helps the skin look hydrated and refreshes your makeup in a second! I think it’s ideal for all women working long hours!



How to do layers like a pro

It’s Autumn time! And what better way to celebrate this time but with amazing street style looks! It’s the perfect time to do Layers!

Although many of you ladies panic with the idea of doing layers, I have to tell you it’s the simplest thing ever!

The first thing you need to keep in mind is your comfort. When you layer your clothes you actually want to be prepared for the weather outside. Early in the morning and later in the evening it gets chilly but usually during noon the temperature rises a bit. So what you need to do is create a light base,like a skinny jeans and a light shirt, and accessorize appropriately: a cardigan or sweater,a bikers jacket and a long scarf. In this case once you feel hot it’ll be very easy to ” unload”!

The second thing you need to know is the color palette. It takes a lot of practice to mix and match colors and textures when layering so if you’re new at this try to keep it simple: play with colors you are comfortable with and add a small twist to spice things up!
Whatever you do don’t use only one color! Layering 5 black pieces in boring! Use black and white and add red details!

Layering isn’t just for pants! You can create layered looks with dresses and skirts and it’s actually much easier! Wear a sweater over your little black dress and create a more playful look!

Accessories for the IT schoolgirls

Following last year’s tradition I am posting yet another post related to school fashion( and when I say school fashion I pretty much include all forms and levels of education,as I myself frequently attend seminars even at my age).
This time I’m focusing on accessories.

The backpack

When I was a kid backpacks used to be just a necessary evil, a simple way to carry your staff to school. During the last years of high school there ways an attempt to make them more trendy,but still they were pretty boring!
But now!! Oh how I would love to go back to school just to carry one of these!



The sneaks

A favorite kind of shoe for autumn and of course a really comfy one if you have to spend the entire day at school/unit and run to all kinds of activities afterwards!



The friendship bracelets

School without your besties is like ice cream with no flavor! Share with them friendship bracelets and make a fashion statement!


The sweater

My most favorite autumn trend the past two years is the college sweaters! You know,numbers,university logos! Love it! Maybe it’s just me reminiscing my university years but I absolutely love this trend! In either sweaters or cardigans I absolutely adore it!



The furry key chain

We saw it last year hanging from our favorite celebrities’ bags and this time you should include it to your school bag too! It’s a super cute addition to your look and you can have it in many colors and change regularly- I would definitely change it to match my nail colors!!

Lauren Conrad’s first NYFW show

Now that was a surprise!! I’ve been following Lauren’s career since the days of “the Hills”(don’t judge, it was fun to watch and I ways waaayy younger back then!!).

Her first designing attempts were quite good and I always liked her style cause it had a certain vibe,almost like it was from another time.

But this time she outran herself! Her very first NY Fashion Show was to die for! I loved every single look: the color palette,the structures, the lines. I mean,what’s not to love??

Why we love the Olsen sisters

I’ve always been inspired by women how follow their own path. Especially when it happens in such young age I can’t help but admire -and be a little jealous- over them. This week I’m sharing with you the reasons why I absolutely adore the Olsen sisters.

1)They are trend setters

Yes,half the trends you’re following religiously began from the Olsen sisters!!

2) it takes two to tango

Most entrepreneurs begin a lonely road to success. But these girls combined their brains and styles in order to create an empire.

3) small sized perfumes are the most expensive
petite women are usually considered to be weak. But trust me these girls are fully empowered and determined. They began as actresses in a very young age but that didn’t stop them from breaking all the cliches and change their status from actresses to designers to Girl Bosses.


4) they don’t rest but keep trying new things and being creative
There never ending hunger for innovation and creativity in admirable! They never settle and always find ways to become innovative.
