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!
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.
I know I have kept this blog “light” and without many personal details on who I am and how I live(after all,this is a fashion blog!). But given the situation I’m now up against I wanted to share my thoughts..
I’m Greek. I’m 30 years old, i have a 3pages CV (bachelors degree,seminars,foreign languages,working experience in Greece and abroad) and I’m unemployed. The sad thing is I’m not the only one. There’s about one million people in Greece facing this. I’m considered lucky cause I have a family behind that can support me. In most cases this is not an option. There are families here that live just with the pension of an elder member. I can’t begin to describe the present situation in Greece.
When I entered university in 2003 I was like any other kid. I had dreams and high hopes.. Now I’m 30 and unemployed. I have a university degree,I’ve attended a dozen seminars,I’ve worked in several fields and I try my best always to learn something new. When I graduated and couldn’t find a job I thought it was my fault. No,scratch that: I got convinced it was my fault. Year after year all these saviors came but things only got worse. Prime Ministers kept promising it’s the last time measures need to be taken but it was never the last time. It kinda felt like the women who get abused by their husbands. They always say it’s the last time and you always forgive them. Well that was it.
I have been using a lot of new products and I’ve been shopping (a lot) lately so I’ve decided to include my top 10 products for this summer in one post. Since I had so many great options I decided to have a specific budget to keep it affordable. So here it is: 10 products.100 euros total! Best 10 under 10!!
Simple,playful and the absolute trend this summer!
2) Korres nail polish
No outfit is ready unless you have a bright nail color to match it with!
