My Everyday Holy Grail Secrets

BEAUTY SECRETS

Hey Beauties!

How are you this Tuesday? I hope you are having a great start to the new week so far!

I have completely changed my blog design to something more classy and professional since I felt I needed for a change. This is why my blog motivation haven’t been on top lately, but I am excited to start a new chapter and inspire more with my pictures and writing.

I went to the VOGUE 100 YEARS Exhibition in London a few weeks ago and it was so inspiring and interesting to see that VOGUE was founded in the 1950’s. The exhibition had pictures of famous VOGUE covers from every century and you could see how how much the general fashion has actually changed. I think VOGUE is a very great magazine for inspiration and I love that they have articles about everything from beauty and makeup to interviews with independent and successful bloggers, style entrepreneurs and founders. The magazine also looks good on any coffee table.

While I was on the exhibition I took home a few things from their souvenir shop, I bought a notebook, pen, pencils and a giant picture with a vogue cover to give a classy and traditional style to my walls.

Kate Moss were in most of the covers on the walls in the exhibition and it was so cool to see her first ever photo shoots back in the old days. She is such an inspiring and strong woman, I love all of her artistic and naked covers. I think we all have a few things to learn from Katie.

In this post I thought I could mention my favourite high end beauty and fashion products.                  

YOUNG BLOOD

I have been looking for mineral products to replace my old foundation and I recently came over Young Blood products. Now that it is becoming warmer outside I have been in desperate need for some powder or foundation that I can use for the summer and that won’t cover my pores or prevent my skin from breathing. I have learned a few lessons after using different makeup, mineral products can really make a difference and help you look fabulous at the same time.

I chose natural mineral loose foundation in “Honey”. This is perfect for my skin since I am very light, but since I wanted something that could give extra glow I went for a darker shade. Perfect if you want a change from the ivory tinted foundation.

I love to find new treasures and I don’t see the point of paying full price for something when you can find it discounted at places like ebay. I had been looking for some new sunglasses from Ralph Lauren and I fell in love with a pair in “Ralph” design. Thankfully I found them discounted on ebay and ordered them straight away, they have been my favourite pair since and still look brand new.

I have had them since last summer and they bring a classy look to any outfit.

The Iphone case in the pictures is from www.coconut-lane.com and is the perfect cover for your phone if you want something classy. Use my code “Brandobeauty20” to get 20% off all of their products. It’s worth checking them out, I simply love all of their things.


SMASHBOXIMG_9432

Another product that are one of my favourite is the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer, this primer is perfect as a base before foundation and makes the makeup look flawless. The primer is also non greasy and without any oils which is very good. I always use this primer before applying my party makeup, it’s the best advice if you want a long lasting look for the evening.

BARE MINERALS

I came over this bareMinerals product when I was on the go and after I tried it in the shop I had to buy one. It is without doubt one of the best products I have ever tried. This product is a tinted hydrating gel cream for complexion rescue. The tinted cream works as a moisturizer and is the perfect choice if you want to swap your foundation for the summer. I have used it for weeks and it is just amazing!

    Your design looks very classic. I’ve not tried anything from YoungBlood before but I do think once you get use to mineral products and get them to work for you – they look very natural and light xo

    I haven’t been to the Vogue exhibition but I’ve heard fabulous things about it! I think I’ll have to go, finally. I’ve never heard of young Blood but it sounds great!

  • The exhibition sounds amazing. I adore the Smashbox primer.

  • I love them Ralph Lauren sunglasses! I need a new pair soon but struggling to justify with just buying myself another pair of raybans recently.
