Make-up tips: Everyday Look



Dear followers,
It’s been a long time since the last time I posted…Lots of things have been coming up lately…I had even planned going to The Brandery today but it was imposible given that my whole family has come to spend some days with us.
Well, the thing is, I’ve decided to post on make-up tips. Lots of people often ask me like what do I use to do my eyes like that, which mascara do I use to have long and dark eyelashes, what blush do I prefer…
So I’ve chosen the products I most use and usually buy. 
Today I will be talking about my day look.
Here it goes!

It’s summer now, so I try to wear very discreet and comfortable makeup during the day (by comfortable I mean not sticky), because everyone knows that the most horrible thing that can happen is that your face starts getting shinny and sweaty and all the makeup starts to get noticed a lot.
So what I normally used for winter was the Mousse by Maybelline, Sand color, but in Christmas by mum gave me this wonderful day makeup, which is like cream with a little bit of color and it’s exactly what I use for summer now. It’s from Sephora, Benefit. And it’s really great. After apply some of that I then use this lovely mineral powder from Maybelline to give a little bit of color.





I just got as a present these great eye shadows from Dior, and that is what I use for my eyes during daytime. The colors are perfect, really soft and really summery. They suite me because my pale skin and my green eyes combine really well with browns and creams.
So, I first apply the lightest color in the inner third of my eyelid to make my eyes look brighter. Next I use the salmon orange color and apply it on the middle part of my eyelid taking it to the very end of my eye’s corner. Finally I mix the middle color, that’s kind of an olive tone with the terracotta reddish and apply them on the outer third of the lid to make the look a bit deeper. 


























As the final step to complete the look I use my favorite mascara ever: MaxFactor’s False Lash Effect! It’s absolutely fantastic and it makes my eyes look huge!

















So, here is my latest everyday look! 
Hope you enjoyed! Big kiss to all of you and thank you all for following!

SASIA, OH SASIA

Dear followers,
I consider myself as someone who likes beautiful, delicate and feminine clothes. I like soft colours and mixtures of different kinds of fabrics. I like jewellery as well. The thing is...All of this has developed this sudden obsession with these lovely collections; Gossip by Sasikat.
Sasia Oestergaard is the young Danish designer that continues to surprise me with every single new piece she designs. All of her dresses are gorgeous and look beautiful on.
I've chosen some pictures of them so you can admire them, and actually fall in love with them just as I did when I first saw a video on Laura's blog: www.horaconfessions.blogspot.com
Laura has been Sasia's muse for quite a long time now, and the good thing about that, is that she posts videos on the shoots! And her followers (including me of course) get to see every detail on these Gossip collections.


The latest collection, covered in lovely shapes and fabrics is set in The Park of the Labyrinth in Barcelona. I actually consider it my favourite one, given that the photos are amazing and the dresses are fabulous in every way.
My favourite dress? The one Gina(www.ginalalinelife.blogspot.com), another model that has been in the previous shoot for Gossip, is wearing in the first two photographs!


Great models! Great designs! Great shoot!

SHORTFILM/ CORTOMETRAJE-PAMELA PAPARAZZI

Dear followers,
This is actually one of the first short films I have ever done. The idea came up thanks to a lovely photoshoot I had with two very good friends of mine; Ana from bangbangbangbabe.blogspot.com and Annie from anasstyle.blogspot.com!
We were just playing around after the photoshoot, and listening to good music, and laughing and just trying to think what to do next…So after a couple of hours, we decided that a short film was a really good idea.
We created this weird and ridiculous situation, where a glamorous Hollywood star, Pamela (Gigi), is being chased by creepy paparazzi photographer (Ana)...
It was really, really fun! And we laughed so much! God I had I good time!
So, now, finally, the short film is published.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!



Queridos seguidores,
Esta es una de mis primeros cortometrajes para ser sincera. La idea vino después de una fabulosas sesión de fotos que tuve con dos muy buenas amigas mias, Ana de bangbangbangbabe.blogspot.com y Annie de anasstyle.blogspot.com!
Estabamos jugando después de la sesión, escuchando buena música, riendo y intentado pensar en algo que hacer…Asi que después de un par de horas, decidimos que un cortometraje era una buena idea.
Inventamos esta extraña y ridícula situación dónde una glamurosa estrella de Hollywood, Pamela (Gigi), es perseguida por una obsesionada paparazzi (Ana)…
La verdad es que fue realmente divertido! Nos reímos tanto! Oh, Dios, que bien que me lo pasé!
Asi que ahora, finalmente, el cortometraje esta acabado.
Espero que lo disfrutéis tanto como lo disfrutamos nosotras!

Dear followers, I am so sorry I haven’t been posting much stuff about me. The thing is I’ve finished my exams now, and I’m finishing school on Friday so, hopefully, I will be posting at least twice a week. I also want to say that the stuff I will be posting very soon, will have to do with my looks of the day, parties I have and go to, events, fashion and ideas, stuff I like, good music and of course fabulous photographs, photoshoots and videos I will be making with good friends.

Queridos seguidores, siento mucho no haber estado muy pendiente del blog últimamente. He acabado exámenes esta semana y viernes ya es mi ultimo día de clase, así que espero que a partir de hoy mi blog empiece a hablar más de mi, con fotos look of the day, fiestas que hago y a las que asisto, moda, ideas, música y por supuesto fotografía, pequeñas sesiones y videos que realizaré con buenos amigos.

Big hugs to all of you and thanks for following!
Un abrazo bien grande para todos y muchas gracias por seguirme!

SEX... AND THE CITY

VOGUE FEATURE: REBEL ROMANCE


Querido Diario,
No sé porque me siento tan identificada con Carrie… ¿Será por su sentido del humor? ¿Será por su continua busca del hombre perfecto inexistente? ¿Será por su inseparable grupo de amigas? ¿O simplemente por su obsesión con el mundo de la moda?
Sinceramente, no lo sé. Lo que sí sé es que desde hoy, viernes 4 de junio de 2010, Sexo en Nueva York se ha vuelto mío para siempre. He disfrutado de la segunda película tanto como disfrute de la primera, por no nombrar la serie, que fue fabulosa en todos sus sentidos.
Sexo en Nueva York, me transmite emoción, alegría, ganas de vivir, ganas de amar, ganas de moda y sobretodo, ganas de no separarme nunca de mis mejores amigas. Carrie, Samantha, Miranda y Charlotte son personajes que siempre han transmitido vitalidad y fuerza. Cada una de ellas con sus defectos y sus virtudes, cada una con su estilo y sus gustos, cada una con su vida y sus amores. Ellas son únicas. Todo el mundo las conoce, y todo el mundo las adora. Por eso creo y pienso que esta segunda entrega de la película ha sido una pequeña revolución. Se ha vuelto al pasado de cada una de ellas de maneras indirectas, se han recordado momentos vividos que nadie olvidará. Y Carrie, oh Carrie! Está fabulosa en todo momento. Aunque siempre haya pensado que Sarah Jessica Parker no es una mujer guapa, ni bella. Sarah es atractiva, Carrie la ha vuelto atractiva. Porque, queramos o no, todas nosotras, queridas fans de SATC, adoramos a Carrie la que más. ¿Porque? Os preguntareis. No lo sé. Creo que simplemente por ques es Carrie, única.
La segunda entrega ha sido magnífica. La música, Abu Dahbi, la ropa, la luz, las imágenes, la historia, Big…la piel de gallina. Una aventura fabulosa, una película genial. Gracias chicas, por darme justo lo que me imaginaba y quería, de verdad, muchas gracias. Me ha encantado.

Gigi

I loved this photoshoot, It's sooooo Sex and the City, I suppose that was the whole point right?
