OUT WITH THE OLD: BEAUTYBLENDER BUBBLE SPONGE 12 MONTHS LATER VS NEW

beautyblender Bubble sponge old vs new


Hi, my name is Dorota and I can’t live without a Beautyblender. I don't even remember what it was like not to own one. I know there’s plenty dupes on the market but I feel I’ve tried them all & always come back to my trusty sponge. Today was a #happysad kind of day as I said goodbye to my old Beautyblender Bubble & at the same time, I welcomed a brand new Bubble to the ever-growing Beautyblender family.

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS SOFT GLAM PALETTE REVIEW WITH SWATCHES

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette


The brand new Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam palette does exactly what it promises in its name. It allows for a perfect everyday makeup with many muted mattes & stunning shimmers. There’s a lot of overlap here with both brand’s single eyeshadow releases and Modern Renaissance palette but if you’re new to ABH family, the Soft Glam is where I would start. A complete eyeshadow collection starts with off-white matte, through many transition shades, metallics and ends with matte black. There’s not a shade you’d need to borrow from other palettes when doing your daily makeup & the mirror, it truly is perfect in its own light. Have I sold you on Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette yet?

MUSINGS OF A WOMAN ON INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY


This won’t be my usual post about beauty but I wanted to share few thoughts on International Women’s Day. Some will tell you it’s an outdated ‘holiday’ so I hope you turn around and show them your middle finger! Women’s Day is especially needed now that we’re on the brink of REAL CHANGE. We’ve seen it happening slowly, women coming out after years and years of mistrust to say, that’s enough, you will be held accountable for your actions! Women sharing stories of sexual degradation, abuse to help you and me to stand for our rights every single day! We no longer take shit from men, nor anyone else! We are stronger, we are a force of nature.

FULL COVERAGE FOUNDATION VS DRY & DEHYDRATED SKIN & HOW TO MAKE IT WORK

How to make full coverage foundation work on dry & dehydrated skin


Dry skin vs full coverage foundation

Lately, I’ve been loving a little extra coverage. May as well use the time when we’re not sweating (summer!) to create that perfect canvas that lasts all day & make us feel like superstars. Who needs filters if you have a great full coverage foundation at home. Today I’m sharing with you my personal heroes and how I make them work for my dry and almost always dehydrated skin, no cake!

THE ANSWER TO ALL YOUR FINE HAIR ISSUES

Fine hair edit


Writing this post made me realise how much everything has changed since I’ve started this blog. I never used to care about my hair, it was super long, I've basically done nothing with it & wasn’t interested. The drastic cut at the beginning of last year was the best thing that happened to me and since I discovered the joy of styling and actually getting my hair to look ‘the shit’ and not ‘like shit’! Fancy knowing how I give my fine hair some volume & how I make curls last for a week? See below for my answers to any bad hair day issues you may experience with fine hair!

HERE'S WHAT TO DO (AND WHAT NOT TO DO) WHEN YOUR SKIN IS RED & SENSITIVE

Redness prone skin? No problem


Redness huh? I’m not talking that healthy flush you get after a walk in a winter or even the joyous post work out hot sweat/red mess we all become. Redness is a real skin issue for many women and men alike. It can affect our confidence, but can also be the first factor in a diagnosis of rosacea. Which one are you? I may not be able to answer that, only a visit to a good dermatologist might, but I’d like to share with you my personal story with angered skin & what steps I take to fight it.
