VIDEO: MAKEUP HAUL♡

Hello loves! How was your weekend? I still have 3 more weeks until the end of my finals and I'm slowly dying XD This is why I haven't been so active lately. Plus, I really wanted to film and edit this video, which is a lot of work. But it was totally worth it! 
You guys know that I am absolutely obsessed with watching Youtube videos and, since I am so bubbly myself, I also love making my own.
This video is a collective makeup haul. Basically a bunch of makeup items that I bought lately. Some were birthday presents (♥) and also a big portion of this stuff was sent to me.
 So, I want to say a HUGE thank you to the girls from Aromca for sending me the most adorable stuff! I couldn't be more thankful since I am actually using all of them on a daily basis! You can find out everything about Erre Due makeup on their website erredue.gr  They really have amazing products!
What do you guys think about the products I hauled? Have you tried any? Let me know in the comments below!

SPRING FESTIVAL MAKEUP TUTORIAL♡


Hello my darlings! Is your Monday going great? Ha-ha dumb question, I know. Well, maybe this post will spice it up a little bit. I decided to take a tiny break from my mini series, since I posted this brand new video.
I'm uploading once a month now...I'm slowly getting there. Anyway, Coachella(aka my dream festival) is right around the corner and, even though I'm not going, I'm excited. Thus, I created this makeup look. I think it's great for any spring-bohemian festival and I believe that it compliments that extra trendy 70's vibe. 
Well, I think it's bohemian, my dad thinks it's middle eastern...who knows XD Nonetheless, I really dig it and Ι like the way it looks on me. Plus, I had so much fun filming it^_^
What do you guys think? Do you like my look? Let me know in the comments below♥

FEBRUARY FAVORITES♥

Have a nice month everyone! Am I on a video strike lately or what? You guys know that I've always loved creating videos but I never had the time to really get into it. I just hope that I will be able to continue doing this because it is so fun!
This video is all about my beauty favorites for the past month. To be honest, I also filmed a couple of random favorites but the footage didn't make the cut because I didn't want the video to be a billion minutes long. I tried to keep it as short as I could and I narrowed it down to my absolute faves, aka the products that I've been using non-stop during February.
I hope you guys enjoy this video of me making a fool of myself! What are your favorites? What other videos would you like to see in the future? 
Let me know in the comment section below ♥

Valentine's Day Makeup Tutorial♥

Yes, I finally uploaded another video! I've been wanting to do it for so long, but I was incredibly busy with my finals. But, the minute I finished, I sat down to film this look for you! 
It's probably my favorite look so far, because it is feminine and maybe "subtle" but it's also really sexy and glam. This time, I wanted to go all the way, hence the falsies and the contouring. I would definitely wear this for valentine's or for a date and I think that anyone can pull it off, no matter the skin tone or the style. I wore this on a night out with friends, with this mauve turtleneck, a black skirt and over-the-knee boots, but you can pair it with so many different looks. 
I realised that most of the VD tutorials involved pinks and mauves and glitter, but that was after I had uploaded it XD
Anyway, I hope you guys like this look whether you are single or in a relationship. Make sure to tag me if you recreate this♥
All the products I used are in the YT description bar^*

YOUTUBE CONTEST♥

Hello my lovelies! How are you? I'm currently incredibly busy and overwhelmed because of my finals but I just had to share my video with you.
It's part of a greek competition for new youtubers-hence me speaking Greek XD! Many people from all around Greece sent their submissions and the people organising the contest chose the top 100. Mine included! I couldn't believe it, to be honest^^
Now it's up to the crowd to decide their top 20 picks. I don't see mine winning but I'm still proud that I got some sort of recognition and, of course, I'm proud for my effort and the result. 
The contest ends in 5 days and I finally got the chance to share it with you. I would really appreciate it if you could check it out and give it a thumbs up if you enjoy it. Even if you can't understand greek you can just mute me and watch the tutorial:P
I hope you like it! Let me know in the comments below♥

FALL GLAM MAKEUP TUTORIAL♥

You guessed it right, it's another Youtube video! I'm so excited to share this with you. I know I've been on and off with Youtube for so long, but with so many things going on in my life it's hard to keep up. I've noticed though that whenever I do them, you guys seem to enjoy them as much as I do. I will try to upload more often from now on and I will definitely upload another one next month since I'm planning something special for you (shhhh ^*)!
In this one, I'm showing you an easy way to create a glamorous yet wearable makeup look using products mainly from the drugstore. It goes without saying that you can use things you already own to recreate this. I am not a makeup artist and I'm still learning, so please don't judge! 
I believe that this look is perfect for fall (and beyond) and it combines nicely warm neutrals with the smoky effect and bold lips. Feel free to play around and add winged liner for a more dramatic effect or change for nude lips in order to make this more daytime-appropriate. It all depends on your style and taste!
I hope you guys like this video, give it a thumbs-up if you do! Please subscribe to my channel and check out my previous videos! Let me know what you think in the comments below♥

100 HOT BEAUTY PRODUCTS-FALL'15

Hello my darlings! How are you all today? I'm currently a little sick and also anxious because I have a bunch of things to take care of and nothing seems to go the way I want it too.
But anyway, I try to stay positive. After all, this is a happy and positive place. And today's post is definitely a very happy one. You probably know that I am a little obsessed with Polyvore, especially when it comes to creating things for the blog. That slideshow tool is truly life changing because I can share with you as many products as I want without having to create a ginormous post. 
Today I decided to show you some of the newest-and best-beauty products for the season. Beauty is my weakness, we girls have that in common ^* In this collection I wanted to include both high-end and drugstore options and also some oldies but goodies(like the Maybelline Age Rewind). There are no nail polishes since I already went crazy there on a previous post. Everything else is here though, so you simply have no excuse not to be updated for the hottest beauty products for fall, from now on. Just kidding XD
I hope you guys like my picks. Let me know what you think and what are your holy grail products for fall, in the comments below♥

OLIVIA PALERMO FOR CIATE♥

Good day my loves! How are you all? I'm currently preparing for a party but I thought I should squeeze in some blog time. The truth is that I've been meaning to make this post for a while now, but something else always came up. 
You probably already know that Olivia Palermo collaborated with Ciate London to create her own makeup line. I decided to show it to you here anyways because I think it's really beautiful and versatile and, of course, perfect for fall. 
According to the reviews the colors and the formula are great, even though the selection is quite limited. I think that these products would look flattering on most skin tones and compliment nicely the facial features. Mostly warm toned, they will go well with many different outfits and make the transition from day to night much easier.
The only downside for me is the price. But we already knew that this is the price range of the brand. It's not that they raised the prices because of O.P. 
Now to the important part. Is it really worth it? Well, I would say no! I absolutely adore Olivia and I think she has an amazing taste and style. But all the products are very basic, very common. There is nothing here that we haven't seen before. You can definitely find some really great and cheaper alternatives pretty much anywhere.
What about you guys? Have you tried any products from the new collection? What are your thoughts? Let me know in the comments below♥

FALL 2015 NAIL POLISH♥

Hey guys! How is your weekend so far? I'm preparing for a pampering night-in as we speak! I know, big plans for Saturday night huh? XD Before we start I wanted to let you know about a special category that I'm hosting here for a month. It's about the "Single girl's 30 day challenge". There is a whole new page about it so go and check it out here, because I think you will be interested! Anyway, I don't want to ramble because I'm too excited for today's post.
If you've followed my blog for a while you probably know that I am a nail polish junkie. A makeup junkie in general, but I have a special place in my heart for nail polish! And new season means new shades!
I don't want to start talking about it but, unfortunately, summer has come to an end! In my opinion, we should all keep our memories inside our hearts and move on with our lives. After all, there are plenty of things to be happy about during the fall. New nail polish is one of them. Use the arrows to watch the slideshow on the top and read my caption for each color family^* Enjoy♥

STYLISH SAILORS♡


Happy Sunday everyone! And happy fathers day♥
I hope that you are all good and ready for a great summer vacation. I'm not really there yet, but I hope that I will adjust soon enough. My exams are FINALLY over so now I can sit back and enjoy life a little bit!
You probably already understood the theme of this post. Navy, sailor-like fashion! Let's not fool ourselves. This trend is "in" every single summer so you really can't go wrong if you find the right pieces. Also, keep in mind that, even if you don't travel or go sailing or something like that during the summer, it doesn't mean that you can't spice up your wardrobe a little and simply have fun with it.
Personally, I'm really digging this trend and this is why I decided to put together this slideshow. Note that it is more of an inspiration collection rather than a shopping guide, since it is a bit above the average girl's budget XD I just thought that all these would be a great stimulation for your inner fashion goddess.
Stripes, Jackie-O sunnies, bold red lips, marinieres, high waisted shorts, espadrilles yada yada yada. Just use the arrows to move back and forth and get some summer inspo♥
What I love about this collection is that it is so chic and you can create some seriously effortless looks and look put together without trying. With everyone walking around in tiny bikinis and daisy dukes all summer, I think we need some elegance in our lives. Don't you agree? ^*
Let me know what you think about this collection in the comments below♡

CINDERELLA x MAC

Hello everyone! How is your day going? I hope that you are all well:)
Now, in case you were searching for a break from reality, a little time travel to your childhood, just to get in touch with your younger self, then you have come to the right place. No, I didn't build a time machine, but I have Mac's latest collection, inspired by Cinderella!
They have had plenty of other marvellous Disney collections in the past and this one is no exception. Cinderella was the first Disney princes I ever had and I kept watching her movie over and over again in our old VHS player. So, you can guess how excited I was when I saw the collection. There are 17 products, from lippies and eyeshadows to brushes. Most of them are quite light and neutral-pink-gold but there also some darker shades. The items that I definitely would buy are the eyeshadow palette and the lipsticks.
But, I think most of these are pretty awesome and perfect to recreate Cinderella's romantic, innocent look, maybe with a twist. If you're a fan of the dark side, there are some products inspired by her evil step family too.
What about you guys? Did you get any of the products? Which Disney Princess is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below♥
168 Large Angled Contour Brush ($35)

 217 Blending Brush ($24)
 Beauty Powder in Mystery Princess ($28)
 Fluidline in Little Black Bow ($18)

NEW URBAN DECAY

Have a nice month everyone!!! I don't know if you guys love Urban Decay or not but, the moment I say their new products, I knew they had to be on the blog. Everyone has been obsessing over the Naked series for so long, so it's great to see some new stuff for a change.
The new additions include two eye shadow palettes, two eye pencil sets and one mini lipstick stash. Simply, all the things color to work with this(and the next, and the next) season.
The first palette, Vice3, offers a wide selection of colors and finishes, while the Shadow Box sticks to the shimmers.
The eye pencils start from classic black and reach bold metallics and brave colors such as electric blue. The lipstick minis come in 3 new and 3 already existing bestselling shades and a full-size lip pencil.
My personal favorite is probably the Vice3 palette since it contains all anyone needs for eye shadow, the nudes, the greys and the jewel tones, including a double-ended brush. Plus, it offers some colors without shimmer, which has always been my problem with the Naked palettes. Too much shimmer.
It's quite of a good deal to give 60$ for these 20 colors and a brush, all full size. It depends on whether you are willing to spend this amount of money for eyeshadows. But, the quality is good, you already know that if you've ever tried UD products before. And please, let's take a moment and think about the YSL couture palettes that offered only 5 colors for the same price. If you don't know what I'm talking about, just check out my old post about them here.
I don't know if you like these new products, but I know for sure that Urban Decay is raising the bar once again and makes it hard for us to choose just one product from just one brand. 
Wouldn't it be perfect if we could afford them all?
I hope you guys are enjoying makeup as much as I do and I hope that life is going well. Don't hesitate to leave a comment and tell me your thoughts on these new products and, until the next time, enjoy!

BEST MAKEUP TRENDS FOR FALL 2014

It's Friday yeah! I'm just getting excited over silly things because I feel like fall is knocking on my door and if that didn't mean going back to a stressful school year, I would be totally fine. I love fall so much and I'll tell you more in an upcoming post. I'm all planning ahead now that I'm back.
Anyways, nobody can say that they are all ready and good for fall without the right makeup. We all have that one product that we bought back in May and are just dying to finally use it. I decided not to talk about foundation, creams etc. since these are not optional, but to focus more on the trends of the season. 
So, straight from the runway and the great designers, here they are.
THE NUDES
This is probably the year of the nudes. During summer everyone was obsessing over the trend and, right now, nobody seems willing to let go. The "no makeup" makeup is likely to be your best buddy this fall.
TIP: Stay away from the really light shades since they can make you look kinda dead. Go for peachy or brown nudes.



 VA VA VOOM
All flirty and dark, these products are going to add that 60's vibe to your looks. The perfect wing and bold, black lashes to make your eyes pop.

GLITTER PARTY
'Cause sparkles just make everything better! Party at night, dazzle in the morning ^*

PAINT THE TOWN RED
Red is always in, no matter the season! I really want to try the new products by Louboutin btw.


 COLOR ME UP
Some unexpected pops of color never hurt anyone. Double points for metallic outcome ;)
 
 
MAUVING ON
Burgundy is one of the it-colors this season and together with mauve, they happen to be the perfect transitional shades. Darker than hot pink but still, really hot.
 
BROWS N' BROWNS
Fall without brown is like chocolate chip cookies without the chocolate. Sad, I know. But gladly, whether you prefer dark coffee or golden bronze, it's all here
 



 
 
  
SMOKEY-ING HOT
We may like brown smokey, but the original grey-black will always come first! Just remember to love the smoke only at your makeup...


That's a lot of makeup guys and, frankly, I don't really know where to start from. But I'm getting so much inspiration from all that and I can't wait to create some great looks for fall. I hope you do too♥
