3 Beauty Secrets

Do you want to know my 3 BEST Beauty Secrets? [Click to Read More]

Hi Darlings,

I’ve had this post floating in my head for so long, I’m so excited to finally share it with you.

Being a beauty lover I’ve always loved checking at every Fashion Week, Make up Artists’ instagrams, magazines to the point that throught the years I’ve learned some tips and tricks that I’ve started doing in my daily routine.

These are things I do all the time, they totally work and they make my life so much easier, you have no idea, I really hope they can help you too.

They are:

  • The PIMPLE Secret
  • The LIPSTICK Secret
  • The NOSE Secret

You know when you feel that tiny monster coming out of your face? This trick works wonderfully in that case but it’s also perfect when it’s already out and it’s white and painful.

(I’d have shown you a picture of the before and after but I find it quite gross and unnecessary, you can try it and see it yourself).

My sister Queen and I do this all the time and it helps heal the pimple in a day, it’s like the miracle you have all been waiting for.

All you need is:

  • Tea Tree Oil: mine is from The Body Shop but you can find it everywhere, I just happen to have this one. This essencial oil has antibiotic, antibacterial and antiviral properties.
  • Acne Dots: Mine are from a local drugstore but again you can find them everywhere. The are usually infused with tea tree oil and salicilic acid. You can read about it here.

Both of these things help you to heal a pimple but if you COMBINE them the results are way better and way faster.

How To:

  • Before bed, on clean skin after you nighttime skincare routine (it works better if your moisturiser has had time to sink in), you put a couple of drops of tea tree oil on a Q-tip and apply it directly on the pimple (be careful when you apply it as it can be really drying on the skin so make sure you put it only on the blemish) and let it dry (It takes about a minute).
  • Then put the acne dot/patch on top of it.
  • Go to sleep (you should leave the dot on for 8-12 hours)
  • Wake up and be amazed by the results!

  


Do you want to know how to put LIPSTICK perfectly on? [Click to Read More]

 

I’ve been using this technique for years without realising how much easier it makes my lipstick life.

If you are a dark lipstick lover like myself you know how annoying it can be to put the product on with a brush and therefore taking the brush around to do touch ups on the go, plus I hate to wash brushes with lip stuff on because is 10 times harder.

I’ve seen this technique done by incredible make up artists like Charlotte Tilbury and Lisa Eldrige.

You put the lipstick on straight from the bullet. You can see how uneven and sloppy it is.

You use the lip liner to create the line around the lips. The pencil will pick the lipstick up and clean the line for you.

Et voilà! Lipstick is perfectly sharped and it looks amazing.

 

 

 

 

I love this technique so much because:

  • It prevents me to wash lip brush.
  • I can fix my lipstick everywhere without having to carry around a lip brush that might mess up my purse.
  • The lip liner on the edge prevents the lipstick from smudging and going into fine lines.
  • The pencil doesn’t have to match the lipstick perfectly because as I said the point picks up some of the pigment and you can’t see the difference (In my pictures the lip liner is a couple of shades darker than the lipstick but you can’t even see it.)
  • It works with every lipstick formula: glossy, liquid, regular.

 

Do you want to know how to get rid of DRY NOSE after a cold? [Click to Read More]

 

A beauty lover’s nightmare is getting a flu (ok is not fun for anyone) but when you love to wear make up having watery eyes and runny nose sucks a lot more and the aftermath is even worse.

Do you know when you have been blowing your nose like crazy that it gets so dry and red and then putting make up on is a nightmare bucause it’s all flaky?

Well I can promise you it doesn’t have to happen anymore.

IMG_9770.jpg

The secret is HOMEOPLASMINE! (Mine is horrendously well loved as you can see).

I’ve seen it in a bunch of make up artists’ kits, they use it on model’s really dry and chapped lips and it works wonders even for that.

But I love to use it, when I have a cold, EVERY TIME (ok, every few times) I blow my nose around it to prevent the roughness of the tissue from scratching it. You will be amazed by how wonderfully it works. No more dryness or Rudolf nose. I promise.

IMG_9825.jpg

I’ve been using it for YEARS and I still have a lot left as it’s so thick and you need such a small amount. It doesn’t have a scent and it’s quite affordable. It’s omeopatic, antiseptic and made with natural plants extracts.

I don’t know where you can get it in store but I found it on amazon.

 

Do you have any pro tip/beauty secret to share with me? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear from you!

Intro

 

Ciao Darlings,

L’idea di questo post mi ronzava nella testa già da un po’ sono felicissima di condividerlo finalmente con voi.

Da che ne ho memoria ho sempre adorato sbirciare tra Fashion Weeks, agli account dei Make Up Artist più famosi e le riviste per cercare quale fosse l’ultimo segreto che queste persone svelavano a noi comuni mortali: alcune cose che ho letto sono rimaste con me nel corso degli anni e ho iniziato ad usarli quotidianamente.

Queste sono tutte cose che io faccio spessissimo, sono tutte approvate e vi assicuro che vi faciliteranno la vita in pochissimo tempo, perciò fatemi sapere che cosa ne pensate.

Abbiamo:

  • Il Segreto Del BRUFOLO
  • Il Segreto Del ROSSETTO
  • Il Segreto Del NASO

pimple

Noto anche come: “Come liberarsi di un brufolo in FRETTA”

 

Avete presente quando sentite quel piccolo mostriciattolo che sta per fare la sua comparsa sulla vostra faccia? Ecco questo trucchetto funziona sia su di lui che su quelli che già troneggiano sul vostro viso con la loro puntina bianca.

(Vi avrei mostrato una foto del prima e dopo ma lo trovo un pochino disgustoso, potete provare e vedere da voi).

Io e mia sorella Queen lo usiamo spessissimo, aiuta a curare il brufolo in una giornata, praticamente è il miracolo che stavate aspettando.

Vi servirà:

  • Tea Tree Oil: il mio è di The Body Shop ma si trova tranquillamente anche in erboristeria o online. Questo olio essenziale ha proprietà antibioticheantibatteriche antivirali.
  • Cerotti Per l’Acne: I miei li ho presi da Casa&Co, sono della marca Seta Blu ma li trovate ovunque. Di solito sono infuse con, appunto, tea tree oil e acido salicilico che aiutano a curare l’acne: potete leggere qui i benefici del’acido salicilico.

 

IMG_9769

Entrambi questi prodotti vi possono aiutare a curare un brufolo ma se li UNITE avrete dei risultati formidabili nella metà del tempo.

Cosa fare:

  • Prima di andare a dormire, sulla pelle pulita dopo la skincare serale (funziona meglio se lasciate assorbire la crema idratante per un po’) mettete un paio di gocce di tea tree oil su un cotton fioc e lo passate direttamente sul brufolo (fate attenzione a metterlo solo sul brufolo perchè potrebbe seccarvi troppo le altre aree del viso) e lasciate asciugare per circa un minuto.
  • Successivamente applicateci sopra il cerottino.
  • Andate a dormire (Dovreste lasciarli agire per circa 8-12 ore)
  • Svegliatevi e rimarrete sconvolti dal risultato.

 

Lipstick

Noto anche come: “Come applicare il rossetto perfettamente e senza sforzo”

 

Uso questa tecnica da un sacco di anni senza mai realizzare quanto effettivamente abbia facilitato l’esistenza.

Se come me siete amanti dei rossetti scuri avrete presente quanto sia fastidioso applicare il rossetto con il pennello e portarselo poi in giro per i vari ritocchi rischiando di macchiare borsa e quant’altro. Inoltro per lavarlo ci vuole un eternità.

Ho visto questa tecnica fatta da make up artist del calibro di Charlotte Tilbury e di Lisa Eldrige.

IMG_9834.jpg

 

Applicare il rossetto direttamente dal tubetto. In questa fase non importa essere precisi.

 

 

 

IMG_9835.JPG

 

Usate la matita per sistemare i contorni. La matita preleverà il rossetto e pulirà la linea per voi.

 

 

IMG_9837

 

Et voilà! Il rossetto è preciso e ordinato.

 

 

 

Amo questa tecnica perchè:

  • Mi salva dal dover lavare il pennello per le labbra.
  • Posso sistemare il rossetto ovunque senza necessariamente rischiare di macchiare la borsa.
  • La matita sul bordo impedisce al rossetto dallo sbavare o dall’entrare nelle pieghette delle labbra.
  • La matita non deve necessariamente essere dello stesso colore del rossetto perchè come ho già detto preleva un po’ di pigmento e la differenza è impercettibile (nella foto la matita è di qualche tono più scura del rossetto ma non si nota neanche).
  • Funziona con ogni formula di rossetto: liquido, lucido o quello classico.

 

Nose

Noto anche come: “Come evitare il naso rosso e spellato dopo un raffreddore”

 

Uno degli incubi peggiori di un’amante del beauty è prendersi un raffreddore (ok, non è divertente per nessuno) ma quando ami truccarti avere gli occhi che lacrimano e il naso che cola diventa 10 volte più odioso.

Avete presente quando passate la giornata a soffiarvi il naso al punto che diventa tutto rosso e spellato?

Beh, vi prometto che non deve necessariamente succedervi più.

IMG_9770

Il mio segreto è l’ HOMEOPLASMINE! (Sono cosciente che la mia ha un aspetto orribile)

Ho visto questo prodotto nel kit di vari make up artist che lo usano sulle labbra secche e disidratate delle modelle e funziona benissimo anche in quel caso.

Ma personalmente amo usarlo quando sono raffreddata OGNI VOLTA (Ok non proprio ogni volta) mi soffio il naso intorno alle narici per evitare che la ruvidità del fazzoletto graffi l’area. Rimarrete sconvolti da quanto funziona bene.

IMG_9825

La uso da ANNI e no ho ancora tantissima perché è talmente densa che ne basta davvero poca. Non ha odore e costa circa 10€. E’ omeopatica, antisettica e fatta con estratti naturali dalle piante.

Io l’ho presa in farmacia ma potete trovarla anche su amazon.
