♕ The Mermaid Series ♕ Princess Ariel ♕
{2017 Edition}

The Mermaid Series is back... With a very special makeup look!
A personal tradition of mine is to create a look inspired by my favourite Disney Princess (guess who XD) on my birthday... And so I did this year, of course! Although I am a liiittle late with this post since my birthday was two days ago, whoops XD

Every year I manage to make the same makeup look different to the previous ones. The first one (2015 version) was created using mainly mineral makeup; last year's (2016 version) was way more Nabla-centered.
So... "what now?" you may wondering.
Well, I was lucky enough to receive some MakeUp Geek eyeshadows as birthday gift from a family member! (The haul post with swatches will be up next week, I'm already working on it!)
So, that being said, this year's version was the perfect opportunity to welcome this brand into my stash - thus it was very MUG-centered! *_*

♕ Holiday Make Up ♕

Holidays are now over (sigh!) but I still have to show you the look I wore on Christmas Night! Dishonor on me, dishonor on my cow XD Seriously, excuse me for the awful delay - but here it is at last! Better late than never I guess ^^"

Christmas Eve was crazy a day - I had tons of things to do, stuff to cook and so on - I had very little spare time left for my make up. I had to get ready very quickly, as you can imagine, and thus it was not the moment to experiment and try new styles/techniques. But! It was the right occasion to try one look by MrDanielMakeUp - precisely, one of his holiday make up looks. I chose the one that featured my current obsession aka the Dazzle Liner in Klimt, paired with red and warm shades (here you can watch his tutorial on YT).
It felt quite Christmas-y, and since anytime is a good time to use Klimt... I decided to give it a try!

♕ New Year's Make Up ♕

First post of 2017, yay! :D Happy (belated) New Year everyone!

Today I'm going to show you the look I wore on New Year's Eve! I was very inspired that day - it was one of those days when my inspiration is way too much, actually XD I felt the excitement for the new year approaching, so I wanted to create something meaningful to celebrate! But I had so many ideas, very different from each other - and I was so torn.
At first I thought about doing a mermaid look. Then I thought I could do something graphic. I also considered doing a classic, chic and princess-y look with Swarovski crystals. Again, I was SO torn.

♕ #ProdottiPRO(va) 2016 ~ What Happened in the End? ♕
{feat. Miki in the Pinkland & A Lost Girl}

Happy New Year's Eve everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts, those past days have been pretty busy - spent celebrating with family and friends, princess-ing around in my new princess dress (which you might have seen on my Instagram, if you follow me there). I have my Christmas look to post (and tonight's makeup too!) but it will be part of the 2017 agenda! 

Since this year is about to end, it's time to make some balances. And I'm going to do so with a very special post, in collaboration with two amazing ladies: Misato - A Lost Girl (loves make up!) and Miki - Miki In The Pinkland. Years ago Miki created a tag called "Prodotti PRO(va)", a nice pun that in English could be translated in "Products [I want to] try". This tag consist in listing all the products we want to try during the year; mind you, it's not a mere wishlist, but a well thought out list of products we are really willing to try during the year. At the end of the year, we like to make a sort of report, to see what happened. And that's what today's post is about! I'm going to review my 2016 list and tell you what I did try and what I didn't... And why. 
It's always so much fun, hope you'll enjoy it too! (Misato's post is here and Miki's here)

♕ Autumn 2016 Most Played ♕

Winter is just begun, which means it's Most Played time! To be more precise, it's time I show you my Autumn most used products!
Must say, I don't have a huge bunch of products to show you - I didn't buy anything new in terms of skincare, so this post is going to be pretty short I guess. And quite mono-thematic, since is all makeup stuff.

♕ Curved Liner Make Up ♕
{My Favourite Make Up Look of 2016}

I finally - finally - get to show you my favourite look I made during 2016! I kept postponing it, for months and months - but now, since the year is almost over, is definitely time to write a blog post about it!

It's a remake of a look by @swayzemorgan on Instagram (check her out, this lady is seriously skilled!): I kept the black and white curved liner design, but changed the colour combination of the look (hers featured pinks and purple shades). I love this look to the point that I decided to put it on the blog's home page, on the author's widget (as you probably already noticed!) ♥

♕ Fairy Queen Make Up ♕
{Feat. Nabla Cosmetics ~ Goldust Collection}

I'm really excited about the look I'm going to show you today! It features my favourite piece of the Goldust Collection by NABLA Cosmetics aka the Dazzle Liner in Klimt. Since I first saw it, I knew I had to do a look just for it, focused on it, to show and enhance its beauty.

Even thought I didn't have any particular inspiration, I realized this look gives a lot of fairy vibes - with all the tiny dots and swirls. The more I look at it, the more it makes me feel like a Fairy Queen - if I were a fairy queen, I would wear this makeup look every single day... Hence the title ;D
