Spotlights on RIVERDALE: Make Up ☘

Image
Have you ever heard of "Riverdale"?
It's a quite popular TV series based on the characters by Archie Comics , with a mysterious and intricate plot, and it features some great actors. For example, do you remember Cody from "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody"? Well, he's now 24 years old, and he plays the shady Jughead Jones, as well as the narrator of the series. The first season is composed by 13 episodes, and the second season will be out this October. I CAN'T WAIT!
Since I developed a strong obsession with this series, I decided to write a post about the main female characters' make up.
Shall we start?


1 - BETTY COOPER
Elizabeth "Betty" Cooper is a smart, kind and lovely girl, who lives with a "prissy" family. She is "perfect", and she excels in almost everything. Betty is played by Lili Reinhart, who is one of the most beautiful humans in the world. Her make up is always (except in one episode) kept simple and neat, in…

I MIGLIORI SITI PER STAMPARE FOTO ☆

Image
Ciao bellezze,
questo è il primo post che scrivo in italiano su questo blog. Mi sembra strano, è come se fosse un'esperienza nuova ed emozionante. E lo è. Praticamente scrivevo in italiano solo i temi e le verifiche al liceo; e ora scrivo in italiano i messaggi, i miei appunti dell'uni e il mio diario segreto. Sì, ho 20 anni e tengo un diario, e non me ne vergogno, visto che non c'è nulla di cui vergognarsi 😜. Comunque, oggi vi voglio parlare dei 3 siti migliori per stampare foto, creare fotolibri, ecc.
Pronti; partenza, e via!


1 - PIXUM
Questo sito presenta tantissime offerte vantaggiose, ad esempio 75 foto gratis con spese di spedizione escluse, oppure lo sconto di 10 euro sul primo fotolibro. Si possono stampare foto, poster, creare calendari, biglietti, cover per il tuo cellulare, tazze e cuscini personalizzati, e tanto altro! I prezzi sono abbordabili, e la qualità è eccellente.
Mia sorella ha fatto tanti ordini da Pixum, ed ogni volta rimane a fissare le foto stampat…

NYX COSMETICS Ultimate Shadow BRIGHTS Palette Review ❀

Image
Hello beauties,
how are you doing? It's July, which means "exam session". And "exam session" means "studying everyday non-stop". Please, wish me good luck D:.
Anyway, this post is about a Nyx Cosmetics product, the Ultimate Shadow palette in BRIGHTS.
I've been a lot more into colorful looks lately, so I decided to get this palette in order to experiment.
The palette comes in a black, simple, square packaging. There are 16 different colours, some of them are matte, and some are shimmery. The pigmentation is pretty good, even though a couple of colours don't show off very well. For the swatches, I applied awaterproof cream eyeshadow beforehand. It is from Nabla Cosmetics, and I use it as a primer.







The first colour (from left to right) is a shimmery red. I am a little disappointed, because I thought it was more vibrant.
The second colour is a matte rich fuchsia.
Then, we have a neon orange shade (which is not very pigmented), and a matte orange o…

THE BEST SEPHORA PRODUCTS ♛

Hello beauties!
How are you doing? I hope you are doing well. The weather here is UNBEARABLE. Everyday is a struggle, trying to find the perfect spot in the shade and not to freak out if the sun is burning us alive.
Anyway, today I am going to talk about my favorite beauty products from Sephora!
As most of you already know, Sephora does not only feature products from different beauty brands, but it features its own make up, skincare, and beauty tools too. So, here's a list of what I am in love with!

1 - LIP STAINS AND LIP TINTS



There's an incredibly wide range of colour choices - in Italy there are just 23 colours, while, in the USA there are 40 - including odd shades like "Sea Mist 30", and "Siren Song 31". Even though I prefer the lip stains, the lip tints are not bad either. Both are affordable, and long lasting (they do tend to fade away a little after meals). They feel super comfortable on the lips, without drying them out. The texture is creamy, and th…

HOW TO STOP LETTING YOURSELF GET PUSHED AROUND

Image
How many times have you felt weak, helpless, and frail? How many times have you been treated disrespectfully for no apparent reason? I have, countless times. And if you are reading this, you probably have too. Did you react? Did you stand up for yourself?

I decided to write this post after having an awful experience with a peer. Let me explain.
I recently worked for about two months with a girl who is the same age as me. In the beginning, I thought she was a pleasant and nice person. After a week, her attitude towards me changed all of a sudden. She began to treat me badly, using harsh manners and talking to me in an aggressive way. She was being really rude, and I didn't have any clue about the reason why. I thought a lot through the possible reasons, unsuccessfully. "What did I do wrong?"
I wanted to talk to her in order to settle the issue. But the worst thing was the fact that I couldn't. Whenever she acted like that, I just stayed silent, with my mouth shut, my …

How To Detox With The CLINIQUE 3-STEP SKINCARE SYSTEM, TYPE 4 (REVIEW) ☆

Image
Hello beauties,
how are you doing? It is already May, and in Turin the weather really sucks... It rains all time and I never get the chance to see a single ray of sun. It puts me in a bad mood, and I feel low in energy. Perhaps I am affected by  the SAD (Seasonal affective disorder) D:?

Anyway, this post isn't about my mood swings, but it's about my current skin treatment for acne. Since July 2016 my face has been covered by a lot of pimples that don't seem to be willing to disappear. So, I got some new products, since the ones that I already had didn't work or just made little or no differences. Finally, I found a great mini kit from Clinique, the "3-Step System" for combination or oily skin type (4).





Basically, the kit is composed of:
1 - a liquid facial soap. It's not drying and it is easy to use. You just apply it on your wet face and massage gently, til it becomes foam. Then, rinse everything off with lukewarm water and pat dry your skin with a towel.…

SPOTLIGHTS on JOHANNA HERRSTEDT ☆

Image
Hello beauties!
This post is going to be about the one and only Johanna Herrstedt, a popular Swedish social media influencer and model. She was born on August 4th, 1994. She is just two years older than me! With thousands of followers all over the world, Johanna has conquered my heart. I have been following her since 2015. Her beauty gleams from every pore of hers, and her make up looks are STUNNING! If you don't believe me, just check her Instagram profile, or her Youtube videos. She has a blog as well! Oh, I almost forgot to tell you. She has her own line of cosmetics, called HERRSTEDT COSMETICS, which is cruelty-free. Right now, there's only the mascara available.
So, today I am going to go through some of her "faces".


Johanna has naturally beautiful brows, that she defines even more with eyebrow products.
Here, she painted her eyebrows fluorescent pink. Iconic, isn't it? The winged liner, the faux freckles, and the pink blush colour make everything look extre…
