    The fall edit TAG: ep.8 "Glitter makeup"

    [ENG] Finally, my last entry for The Fall Edit challenge! It’s time for me to get the shimmer on my face :D I know the theme for today’s post was actually glitter makeup, but after checking my entire collection for some glitter suitable for the face and not finding it, I even tried to pat nail art glitter on my lips and it looked horrible >.< So, in the end, I decided to translate 'glitter‘ into ‘shimmer‘, and here’s what I ended up with.For my eyes I chose to work with very fall-like shades, like these copper-y tones (which I seriously adore to wear on my eyes), and then I…

    The fall edit TAG: ep.7 "Glitter nails"

    [ENG] Second to last entry for The Fall Edit tag :) I’m enjoying posting these entries so much that I’ll be quite sad when this challenge ends!Today’s theme is ‘glitter nails’, and just recently I have received THE perfect fall-glitter nail polish from the amazing Linda of Shimmer Polish. It’s called ‘Valerie‘*, and it’s a party of holographic/coppery different sized glitters suspended in a brownish base. As soon as I saw this bottle peeking through the package, I knew that it was going to be the one

    The fall edit TAG: Ep.6 "Vampy makeup look"

    [ENG] When it comes to makeup, I’m not afraid of wearing dark or very colourful looks, the only problem is that I never have an occasion to sport them, and putting that much effort in a makeup-look that you’ll probably wear just to go grocery shopping isn’t really reasonable in my opinion.  Anyway, this time I had the perfect pretext to dive into my dark and vampy eyeshadows/lipsticks collection for this episode of The Fall Edit challenge, and I quite enjoyed the whole process of creating this look! I used purple and blue for my eyes, kept the cheeks super simple with just a touch of bronzer, and then created…

    The fall edit TAG: Ep.4 "Red lips"

    [ENG] I’m really excited to post today’s entry for The Fall Edit challenge, since I’m loving this look SO much! I cheated just a little bit with the ‘red’, because I would describe this lipstick (which btw is L’Oréal Color Riche intense in 374 ‘Intense plum‘) more as a plum-y shade (as the name itself suggests). But I don’t actually wear red lipstick, since I don’t think that it looks very good on me, and you all know how much I love my burgundy for autumn :P Anyway, to create the eye-look, I used one of my absolute favourite palettes, Kiko Colour Seduction in ‘02 sensuous burgundy‘, plus a matte-brown…

    The fall edit TAG: Ep.3 "Red nails"

    [ENG] Day 3 of this ‘challenge’ :) I had this red nail polish laying around for almost one year before I decided to finally try it on, could you believe it? It’s Flomar ‘314‘, a red metallic shade, very Christmas-y I would say. It was quite easy to apply, two coats and you’re good to go, and it looks pretty awesome on the nails. Am I maybe re-discovering my love for reds? :P [ITA] Terzo giorno di questa ‘challenge’ :) Oggi è il turno di uno smalto che riposava indisturbato nel cassetto da quasi un anno, il ‘314‘ della Flomar. Si tratta di un bel rosso metallizzato, dall’aria vagamente natalizia…

    The fall edit TAG: Ep.2 "Green eye-makeup"

    [ENG] So, here is my second entry for The Fall Edit tag, and today it’s all about a green eye-makeup! As you may know, I do actually really enjoy wearing green eyeshadow, since I think that it makes my eyes pop even more. So this look is something that I have worn in the past, and nothing out of my comfort zone. I used some olive-y shades from the Shady Lady palette (TheBalm) and the Innocence eyeshadow trio from MUA to create this super easy look. Oh, and btw, I’m testing these new Essence longlasting lipglosses, and I can already tell that these are going to be some staples in…

    The fall edit TAG: Ep.1 "Green nails"

    [ENG] You all probably know by now how much I love the colder months :P I’m not really a fan of hot and humid days, and every year I’m counting down the days to the fall season. I love everything about it: the weather, the colours, the smell in the air…and I also love to change up how I dress, what makeup I put on my face and what colours to wear on my nails.So, this time, to celebrate the arrival of fall, I decided to create this tag, featuring some pretty fun nail-and-makeup posts, all about autumnal shades :) I would really love to know if anyone of you…
