Twilight Makeup Tutorial - Alice Cullen

Can't believe its almost Halloween.  I was in two minds about dressing up  this year - kind of feel bit to old for that! But sure,  its almost my duty as a beauty blogger and makeup artist to show off my work.

In the end I decided to dress as as Alice Cullen as she is my favourite Twilight character. I just bought the wig as I had already clothes in my closet that Alice usually would wear.

So watch the video  - aren't we just like twins! Well if you don't look to close that is!

How to wear a Bomber Jacket

Bomber jackets are the latest must-have and celebs like Rihanna, Cara Delevingne and Miley Cyrus have been spotted rocking this season's hottest trend. Make a statement with logos,  artsy prints or add some humour with cartoon characters to your look.  

It also looks great styled with mini skirts or leather effect leggings or you could wear it with jeans and sneakers, possibilities are endless.  For today's look I styled my bomber jacket with a poster style white shirt and biker boots - I think this is really cool and casual outfit and the bomber jacket shouldn't be missing in anyones wardrobe this autumn/winter season.

Leather Effect Leggings | Penneys/Primark
Biker Boots | Penneys/Primark

How about you? Will you be rocking the bomber jacket this season?

How to do Anti-Aging Facial Massage at Home

My face right after a massage - no makeup - this is really how I look like - wart and all! 

It looks like a women have an expiration day in our society, so basically already in our mid thirties we have already reached your shelf life. Well, I think this is bollocks,  I am already in my mid thirties ( actually I can't believe it myself, so don't most people who meet me  - not sure if its my face or my behaviour that makes them think I am much younger than my age) and I can assure you that I haven't been this confident in my teens or twenties as I am now in my thirties.  

Of course, as you know, I am a cosmetics junkie and I would put anything on my face that promises better, younger and smoother skin - probably even chicken poo! ( Well,  I will think about this one though, maybe if I am really, really desperate and really wrinkly!)  But no seriously,  having proper skin care routine implemented will reward you with smoother and younger skin.  ( Jeez, I sound like a doctor! Yeah, and now that we are at the subject - apple a day keeps the wrinkles away!) I've been massaging my skin since mid twenties and if you look any of my photos, you want detect many lines ( if you do please email me immediately   - preventive plan of action must be taken asap!) 

I like to use a rose hip oil as a massage medium, but you can really use any oil you have at hand. 

Anyways, long story short, here is the video and I promise you if you start massaging your skin ever evening even its only few minutes, you will soon improvement in your skin tone and texture. 


  • improves skin texture and muscle tone
  • increases circulation and blood flow
  • nourishes skin
  • soothes and relaxes muscles
  • removes waste and helps with cell renewal 

If you don't believe me, try it out for few days  and then see how your skin looks like after a massage - I would say you will get addicted to the results very quickly.

Faux Fur Coat and Floral Dress

Summer  is definitely over now but the floral trend is here to stay for Autumn/Winter 2014 and I couldn't be happier. Floral prints are chic and so feminine and they suit any occasion. I really like pairing them with a faux fur  coats or leather and denim and jackets. They also look great styled with a chunky knit cardigans and heeled boots. I keep the jewellery or accessories to a minimum as the florals are decorative enough.
