Fast makeup for Work

Hey girls! I always used to wear black eyeliner everyday and some eyeshadow, but now I don’t feel like spending too much time on drawing the wing while I prefer just some eyeshadow to emphatize my eyes. This is the make-up I’ve been wearing in the last days at work.

What I used:

  • KIKO Skin Trainer CC Blur (light)
  • ESSENCE Contour Powder Kit
  • WUNDERBROW in Auburn
  • MAKEUP REVOLUTION Fortune Favors the Brave (black eyeshadow)
  • BURBERRY Effortless Kohl Eyeliner
  • SEPHORA Translucent Powder
  • BURBERRY Bold Lash Mascara
  • VICTORIA’S SECRET Lip Stain (Tease)

In fifteen/twenty minutes I am ready without tons of makeup on my face, so it won’t feel heavy over the day. I don’t like being umcomfortable at work, so I try to wear less makeup possibile as I know it may make my skin oily during the day, but I still want to look good.

What do you usually wear when you have to stay closed in a shop or office all day? And what are your favorite products for everyday use? Comment below! 💜

Casual Gothic outfit

I dress in total black almost everyday of my life, and not only for work, but because it’s the only solid “color” I like on me. Some days I also like to dress more gothic/dark, which actually is my true inner style, but I do like a more casual and elegant way to pull out my metalhead soul.

I was going to a convention with Davide, and since I wasn’t going to do any cosplay I dressed with a new bodysuit and skirt I bought at Bershka, along with those wonderful thights by Calzedonia and the leather waist chincher.

I completed the look with some accessories as the two studded bracelets and my favorite lace choker I bought on Aliexpress. Even thought I don’t have any full body picture, I was wearing some gothic shoes with platform heels I found really comfortable for long walkings!

I was wearing a nude metallic lip stain and some natural false lashes ’cause I didn’t want to spend too much time on doing my makeup neither it to be too heavy, but I also like to emphasize my eyes.

A sweet break in Milano

I had a long break at work today, over two hours, and it’s an awesome sunny day! I’m still out enjoying every ray of it before going back to work, and before the clouds will take away the light. It was the perfect day for walking through the center of Milano eating a fresh focaccia with olives.

I felt the need to sit down and have something warm and sweet to drink, also I was still a little bit hungry so I went to Arnold Coffee, which is a lot like Starbuck’s! There weren’t many people, so I could sit there and relax a bit.

I had a hot Vanilla Latte and this little amazing donut 💜 couldn’t resist to it haha sometimes you just need a vanilla latte and a glazed donut to sweeten up your life!

New make-up pieces

Some weeks ago I went to bed but couldn’t sleep at all, so what’s better than some night make-up shopping online? I wanted to try Make-up Revolution, and I needed to buy a palette and an highlighter, but I had free shipping reaching 30€… so I bought also two lipsticks and a concealer!

I chose this palette over the others because it has many colors I use everyday, like all those brown/purple and the metallic bronze ones. I’d also want to try some dark blue makeups in the future so I went for this “Fortune Favours the Brave”.

The quality is amazing and the price is very low, I never thought eyeshadows by Make-up Revolution could be this good! They blend easily, have a great texture and they are highly pigmented.

I have a very pale skin with cold undertone, and I found the perfect match! This concealer can be used also as a foundation as its own texture is more similar to a foundation and looks amazing on the skin. It has different tones, I chose the C01 (cold, the lightest color!) and it’s just perfect!

Girls, this highlighter is EVERYTHING. It’s a natural white with green/aqua reflexes. It’s the strobe highlighter in the color “Northern Lights”… It’s like having those very lights right on your face. So wonderful.

The first lipstick is actually a large lip pencil, a little bit too fuchsia on my lips now I have red hair, but the texture is great and lasts really long in the day. Completely matte. Lip Euphoria is a full coverage with glossy finish, lasts quite long and feels good on the lips!

In the next post I will have some pictures of the products tested on me, and the link to buy them!💜

Finally recovering!

I have been very sick in the last days, with high fever and soar throat. I couldn’t do anything but staying on the sofa all day, wondering when I would get better. I also lost 3 kilos ’cause I didn’t want to eat anything, and I blame all the medicines I was taking for that.

But now I feel better! The throat is ok, I just need some more few days so I can start singing again. Oh my, I have so many things I need to record and I wasn’t able to do anything!😭 How are you all? Anyone got a flu like me?

I took the DNA Test!

I want to start this post with a simple, but quite unfriendly question: have you ever had racist thoughts? If yes, what would you do if you discovered your DNA actually comes right from the ethnicity you had those thoughts about?
Stop for a moment and think about it.
Or maybe without speaking of racism, when you’re meeting some foreign people, they start speaking in their language ’cause they think you have their same nationality?
This thing happens to me everyday, as almost nobody thinks I’m italian. Mostly Russian people come right at me talking in russian, and they don’t even believe me when I say I come from Italy.

That’s why I decided to take this DNA Test, called “My Heritage”.
I want to know where I really come from, not the nationality written on my passport. I know who my mom and dad are, I know they’re born in Italy from Italian parents… but what happens when we go back in time, searching in the past centuries? Maybe I do have some ancestors from Russia or other East European countries I have never even thought about!

blogmyher5

I chose this DNA Test over the others because not all of them are available in my country, and it was one of most cheap with the best results. Low cost, high quality!
You can make it comfortably at home, it wont hurt you as it doesn’t need any blood sample but just a small amount of saliva. Once completed all the steps carefully following the instructions, just send the envelope to the lab, and in 4/8 weeks you will have the results!

“My Heritage” Test contains:

  • Pre-compiled envelope with the Laboratory address (you add yours on the empty lines)
  • 2 cheek swabs
  • 2 vials containing a liquid
  • A small “Biohazard” plastic bag containing a cotton pad
  • Activation code
  • Instructions

To take the test follow the instructions carefully: you need to stop eating or drinking anything at least 30 minutes before taking the test (I went for 1 hour, just to be sure).
First of all, carefully open a swab without touching the cotton-like surface with your hand and rub it inside ONE cheek for 30/60 seconds. Then open one of the vials, insert the swab in the liquid and break the swab end inside (it has a small black line on it, it will break easily), then close the vial ermetically. Do the same thing with the other swab inside the other ceek, then insert both vials in the plastic bag on the cotton pad. Close it and put it inside the white envelope.

Now you just need to activate your kit online or with the smartphone app! Easy, isn’t it? It will only take like 4 minutes of your life, and in a pair of months you will know exactly where your ancestors came from! I think it’s one of the most fascinating things I’ve ever done in my life: in a few weeks I will get to know what my true origins are, and if they are completely different from what I expected.
We should all do this test, some people would be shocked by the results… and it’s not always a bad thing.

Happy Valentine’s Day! (And Waffle Recipe)

Since we just went on a little journey together, we decided to celebrate this day at home. Normally we go to some restaurant, mostly japanese/sushi bar, but we decided together that I would make fresh waffles in the morning for the both of us, and then have something for dinner made by me or Davide. I woke up first to prepare all the ingredients for the waffles. I never made them before, so I thought it would have been much more complicated, but it’s the same as making pancakes! They are Gluten Free and Lactose Free, as my boyfriend is intolerant to both.

They’re quite easy to make! All you need for making four waffles is:

  • 1 egg
  • a spoon of sugar
  • half glass of soy milk
  • a glass of gluten free flour mix
  • two spoons of melted vegetal butter
  • a teaspoon of baking powder

Mix the egg with vegetal butter and sugar, then add the flour, the baking powder and the milk. Mix together until all the lumps are gone, then put it in the fridge for 1 hour. Spray the preheated waffle iron with cooking spray then put a large spoon of mixture on the iron, close and let cook for at least 5/6 minutes.
I decorated them with strawberries, chocolate topping, vanilla ice-cream and whipped cream! Delicious 💜

In the afternoon I had to go visit a friend of mine which is going to get married soon, and I will be the one doing her makeup, so we made the first make-up test. I’m quite satisfied with it, she chose some wonderful colors as burgundy and gold, but it took us almost four hours to decide everything, so when I came back home it was almost 9 pm! I was already thinking about what I should prepare for dinner when Davide opened me the door and he has already set up the perfect St. Valentine’s table for us!

He bought me this “Love” marshmallow to eat after the dinner and also this fantastic Forever Rose I wanted since years! Feels a lot like “Beauty and The Beast” hahah! He just gave me a ring, I didnt’ expect also this wonderful gift.
The dinner consisted in tortellini with cream cheese and a shrimp cocktail both prepared by Davide. The tortellini were soooo good I could eat another portion! Girls, get you a man who treats you like a princess, and then treat him like your prince. Show you loved ones you care about them, cook what they like, tell them you love them! It can change a day.

They look so delicious…and taste just like that. Hahaha!
We spent the night after dinner watching the new tv series Altered Carbon curled up on the sofa with our cat Anya.
What’s better than watching an awesome movie or series with the ones you love?
How did you spend your Valentine’s Day? Hope it was as great as mine!
