I love it when the beauty product has more than one simple function, I think it always nice to know that your foundation will care not only about the coverage, but also will reduce the annoying greasy shine from the skin and hide the large pores. So let me introduce you the Tomato Girl Mattifying Foundation*, that does all this wonders at the same time. I need to say that it is hard to give an appropriate name for this product, it is definitely not a primer, in it`s regular form, not a beauty balm, because the consistency it different. I would name this product - Tomato Girl `More Than Foundation`, and let me explain why I think this way.


Tomato Girl Mattifying Foundation comes in a small glass bottle with a cute little girl on it and a brush - applicator inside, it looks like a very famous liquid highlighters by Benefit - same size, same bottle and applicator. The product itself looks like a regular liquid foundation, but it has some extra interesting features, which make Tomato Girl unique. Basically, Tomato Girl Foundation can be applied directly on the skin as a normal foundation, can be added to your favourite BB Cream for the extra mattifying effect or used as a primer, to camouflage large pores, hide imperfections and help your makeup to last longer. Tomato Girl has a very lightweight texture, but despite of this you can build it up to a few coats and conceal problematic areas on the facial skin. 

Tomato Girl Mattifying Foundation is available only in one shade at the moment, it is a little bit too dark for my skin tone. At first when I applied it on my face I thought it would never work for me, but Tomato Girls has a wonderful ability to oxidize very fast and match your skin tone. So don`t worry if you think that the foundation is too dark or too light for you, it will work great for everyone. I bet everyone wants their makeup products to have a nice pleasant fragrance! Tomato girls doesn`t smell as tomatoes, even though it would be very interesting, it has a scent of perfume with a bit of basil, and I love it.

Overall, I want to say that Tomato Girl Mattifying Foundation is worth trying and loving. It does everything it all for my skin - it mattifies oily areas, hides the large pores and conceals imperfections. I can`t say that this foundation is moisturizing, but it definitely doesn`t dry my skin, but provides the most smooth and natural coverage. I wish there was more than just 7,5 g. / 0, 26 oz. of the product in the bottle, because I really loved to use this foundation, but it has another advantage, it is travel friendly thanks to it`s compact size. Tomato Girl Mattifying Foundation is available online at Born Pretty Store  Don`t forget to click banner below and use a special 10 % discount code LIZH10 to receive a little benefit, see you all soon girls :*


Lots of love,

Metal Gothic Jewelry Review by PHD Bijouterias

I`m such a huge fan of Gothic and grunge styles in everything -  music, makeup and fashion. My husband shares with me this `dark` addiction and recently presented me a gorgeous gift - a set of two jewelry pieces - statement necklace and a pair of earrings. Originally it was not a set, it was two different jewelries, but my husband chose this two beauties carefully, so the style goes together very well and I can`t express how much I love it! I was so excited to write this review, it was hard to find a right words to describe my obsession, so the today`s review will be short and laconic, but I hope you will enjoy it.

Statement Necklace is made of antique - looking metal, it is very lightweight, almost imponderable, but looks rough and heavy. There are three marble cameos on the center and a bunch of thin chains. Necklace doesn`t glow on the sun the metal is dark and deep, so it absorbs the light, instead of reflecting it. And it creates such a wonderful and charming effect! The style reminds me a little bit of Medieval Ages, when the most beautiful Gothic cathedrals and churches were constructed. The earrings look like a two delicate leaves or feathers, they are lightweight as well and the metal looks like a time-worn shabby silver. On the top of each earring there is a small round cameo, that is very similar to the cameos on the necklace. Earrings go with transparent silicone closures, they are tight and comfy and you don`t need to worry about loosing them (always happens with me :)

Even though metal jewelry can be a bit squab sometimes, these two pieces are awesome and done with so much delicacy. The only thing I need to learn now is how to wear such beauty on my neck. Both of the jewelries were bought in PHD Bijouterias Store in San Paulo, but unfortunately on the official website I didnt` find same necklace and earrings, but I bet there are many similar gothic sets on ebay and others websites.


Lots of love,
Liz

Shiny and healthy hair with a smooth silky texture is something I always wanted to have, so I`m always excited to try out new hair treatment that claims to nourish my dry hair. And today I`m so happy to be reviewing an amazing Macadamia Healing Oil Spray. I heard millions of flattering review on the Macadamia Hair products, so I was really happy to try it out myself.

The spray comes in a solid glass bottle with a spray pump on the top. The main two ingredients of the spray is two world`s most expensive and valuable oils - Macadamia Seed Oil and Argania Spinosa Oil. These two ingredients provide intense and deep hair nourishment, without over-weighting hair`s texture and without making them look greasy and heavy. The product itself is transparent and has a consistency of a simple water mixed with oil. Don`t forget to shake it before the usage to mix all the incredible ingredients together, because I always forget about this important step.

Oil Spray instantly absorbs into the hair and leaves them very smooth, shiny and easy to comb through. I love using this spray right after I wash my hair, I apply it while my hair is still wet, comb through the hair spreading the oil over the entire length of the hair and let them air dry. This healing spray makes my life so much easier, after I started to use it in my everyday routine my hair became easy to manage, shiny and nourished.

The Macadamia Healing Oil Spray includes a natural UV protection and if your hair is colored you don`t need to worry about the intensity of the hair dye - the spray will extend the brightness of it. Let me also say a few words about it`s scent - it smells like a paradise. At first I found the fragrance of Healing Oil Spray a bit too strong and sharp, but after it absorbs into the hair and skin it leaves such a light and pleasant aroma trail. This spray became my your own spa therapy in the bottle, I really love it.

I would recommend this magical product for everyone who have super dry and damaged hair, especially for those who have a thin hair structure. Girls with curly and frizzy hair will love this spray as well! I`m almost sure it is a must have product for everyone. If you want to bring your hair back to life you need to give this spray a try. I`m definitely going to repurchase Macadamia Healing Oil Spray again and hope to try out more products from the Macadamia Hair Treatment line, thank you for reading my post beauties, see you soon <3

Lots of love,
Liza

It is always nice to take care of your facial and body skin with a natural cosmetics and makeup products, but using a special tools, made of natural materials is even better. Recently I purchased and tried out my second Konjac Sponge for face, and it absolutely replaced other tools that I`ve been using to wash my face. Konjac is a kind of vegetable, that grows at warm subtropical to tropical eastern Asia, from Japan and China south to Indonesia. This plant mostly used in food, medicine and beauty industries.

Konjac Sponges are highly recommended for those, who need a special gentle skin care. When I took my first look at this tool, the first though that came in my mind was - oh, no, I ain`t going to touch my face with this! When dry, konjac sponge looks like a lava rock - that kind of rock, we use to exfoliate our feet :) But after you put it in a water for some time, it grown twice it`s size and turns into a soft jelly! You can use this sponge on it`s own, just wet it in a warm water and gently massage your face and neck area. Konjac fibers gently exfoliate and remove dry skin cells and clay improves it`s elasticity and refresh skin’s appearance.I swear it is the best feeling ever, I`m addicted to it! Or you can put a tiny drop of your favorite skin cleanser and wash your face with a huge amount of foam :3

Overall, I want to say that this Konjac Sponge is the best cleansing tool in my life, that`s why I highly recommend it for everyone. The only thing I want to suggest you is to take a special care of this tool. Because it is made of a natural plant, it is very easy to destroy it, so try to keep it in a dry place and be gentle while rinsing it out with water. And please never use the sponge when it is dry, or you can seriously damage your facial skin, because it is really hard when it is dry. I purchased my Konjac Sponge at Buyincoins website, it retails for $1.33, I think it is amazing price for such an amazing product, so don`t hesitate to try it out. 


Lots of love,

Eye Enlarging Makeup Tutorial / BJD Doll Eyes & Lips

Saturday, January 09, 2016
liz breygel eye makeup anime big bjd doll eyes makeup pictures how to beauty

One of my favourite makeup looks, that is super popular among lovely asian girls and anime lovers, is an eye enlarging makeup and you can create it knowing a simple technique. I`ve done few makeup tutorials on my blog, showing you how I make my eye look bigger and deeper like an ocean. But recently I was looking through some pictures on Internet of those pretty bjd dolls, their huge sad eyes and long hair, and got inspired to recreate their makeup look. I love how drastic can be a transformation from a simple cute girl to a melancholic ball - jonted doll. So if you want to look like one of these ladies, just follow this easy instruction :)

liz breygel eye makeup anime big bjd doll eyes makeup pictures how to beauty

1. The first step is absolutely optional, but if you want your eyes to look super big and opened you can put on an eye enlarging circle lens. I used Magic - Eye Easel Contact Lens by Polytouch. After you can start to prime your eyelids.

2. Now it is time to create the future shape of our doll like eye. You can use black eye pencil or a pigmented black eye shadow and don`t worry about the mess! Start to create a thick and long wing on your upper lash line. For the bottom part draw the wing lower than your natural lash line.

3. Apply some warm neutral eye shadow on the crease and clean out the fall outs.

4. Add some dark brown eye shadow above your natural crease, if your eye lids are big enough you can put the eye shadow directly on the crease. Blend out the transitions and clean out the edge of the wing with a concealer. 

5. Now it is a time to blend out the bottom lash line with some brown eye shadow to make it less harsh. To make your dramatic wing last longer without smudging add layer of liquid or gel eyeliner over it, Apply white matte pencil on your bottom waterline and fill in the space till the new lash line. 

6. Curl your lashes and add a coat of your favourite mascara. The essential step in this look is a false eye lashes, don`t be afraid to be dramatic here, choose the longest lashes you own :) I also added small falsies on the bottom, but you can draw them with the pencil or eyeliner. And your BJD doll inspired eye makeup is done.

Naked Flushed Palette Top To Bottom - blush, highlighter and bronzer
As a big fan of dry contouring I was so excited to try out Naked Flushed Palette by Urban Decay and even more excited to talk about it to you my sweeties. There are tons of positive reviews about it on internet so I knew that I have to test it myself and I was sure that I will love it. The original Naked Flushed Palette was released in Spring 2013, but it is still gains popularity over makeup junkies and new fans in beauty community. By the way, this product is an Allure Best of Beauty winner and now I understand why! 

The famous Naked Flushed Palette includes a three essential products for counting - a bronzer, blush and a highlighter - all in one compact and travel friendly palette with a magnetic closure and a nice mirror inside. All three colours has a medium pigmentation, it is not very intense, so it is perfect for people with a lighter skin tones. But at the same time the pigmentation is good enough to create a dramatic contouring and highlighting. The bronzer is absolutely matte, it has a soft yellow undertone and gives a beautiful sunkissed glow to the skin. Blusher has a bit of fine shimmer to the colour, it is a bit more pigmented than a bronzer and I would describe the shade as a coral red. And my favourite product from this magic trio is highlighter - a soft champagne shade with beautiful frosty finish. All the colours are very easy to work with, the application is simple and the blending process in smooth, the colours stay on for hours.

You can easily contour, highlight and add some pop of colour to your makeup look using just one palette. It is a must have for everyone who likes to have all essential products they need at hand. Urban Decay promises that Naked Flushed Palette is free of parabens, fragrances, alcohol, and mineral oil and I think that it is amazing. For those who think that the bronzer is a bit too yelowish for their skin tone Urban Decay released three more contouring palettes - Streak, Native and Strip. These palettes have slightly different shades and undertones, some of the shades are more intense and highlighting powder is lighter. It is always nice to have an options to choose ;)

Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette retails for $32.00 at Sephora and I think it is one of the best palettes to invest in. All shades are full size, so this palette will last for a very long time. I love it and I think you will love it as well, thanks for reading <3

Have you tried Naked Flushed Palette by Urban Decay? 

Lots of love,
Liza

Hidramais Blueberry & Argan Lotion / Review

natural skin care body lotion cream Hidramais Blueberry and Argan cosmetics blogger review
natural skin care body lotion cream Hidramais Blueberry and Argan cosmetics blogger review

I rarely write about the beauty product, which were manufactured in Brazil, even though I live here more than 2 years already. It is not because the cosmetic industry in Brazil is not well developed or bad in general but because nothing really caught my eye right until the last week. I came across a charming white bottle with a watercolour  picture on it - it was a love from the first sign! I can`t say that I needed a body moisturizer at that moment, but I couldn`t went away without trying out the Hidramais Blueberry & Argan Body Lotion.

The body lotion comes in a simple and beautiful pure white bottle with a stunning bright picture of blueberries and argan fruits on it. Hidramais has an amazing artist in the team! The lotion contains amazing natural ingredients, such as argan oil, that moisturizes the skin and helps to fight again different skin diseases. Another amazing ingredient is Olus Oil and I need to say I came across this oil for the first time. It is basically a vegetable oil that consisting primarily of fatty acids, and it is amazing for super dry skin. And the last, but not least ingredient, that fascinated me is Omega 6 - acid that is essential for the skin. It helps to restore the damaged skin cells and promotes the growth of the new cells. 

Hidramais Blueberry & Argan Lotion has a runny and light consistency. It has so many different oils in the formula, so I was afraid that it will be thick and greasy. Thankfully lotion absorbs into the skin immediately and it doesn`t leave an oily coat on the skin. Blueberry & Argan Body Lotion has such a divine scent of a blueberry yogurt. I wish all of my beauty product were smelling like a yogurt! The scent is pretty strong, but it is not annoying at all, so I think everyone will appreciate it. And it is important to mention that this body lotion is perfect for everyone`s skin care routine - if you have a dry skin type Olus Oil will save you from dry patches, if you have an oily skin you will be pleased with it`s runny light texture. I`m more than satisfied with the quality of this cheap, but amazing product and I`m so excited to try other skin care products by Hidramais. 

What is your favourite body lotion / moisturizer at the moment?

Lots of love,
Liza

liz breygel makeup step by step tutorial gothic grunge dark makeup pictures gothic eyeliner makeup

Hi everyone! How did you spend your winter holidays? I hope you all had a great time and you are ready for the new 2016 year. My first blog post in this year I decided to dedicate to my most favourite makeup style ever - dramatic gothic eye tutorial. When I was younger this was my go to makeup, and I even didn`t care what time of a day it is :) Sure in time my makeup skills became better and I improved this look a little bit, but it is still very simple and easy to create. You`ll need just a few basic makeup products for this makeup look, it is beginner and purse friendly. 

liz breygel makeup step by step tutorial gothic grunge dark makeup pictures gothic eyeliner makeup

1. Let`s start with a primer. Prime your eye lids and the eye pencil will go on the skin smoothly. Start to create on the outer half of your eye lid a wing, that will connect your lower lash line and the crease. Don`t worry to be a bit messy on this step, it is only a base for the eye shadow.

2. Blend out the edges of the pencil and set it with a black matte eye shadow. 

3. Put a shimmering gray eye shadow on the other half of the eye lid, blend out the transition between two shades. 

4. Line your waterline with the black eye kohl and create a beautiful wing with a black liquid eye liner. Add few strokes on a bottom lash line if you prefer.

5. And the last step is mascara. Add a generous coat on your lashes, put on some falsies if you want. And you gothic eye makeup is done.

This makeup tutorial is very basic, you can use absolutely any colour you want to add some brightness to your look. I decided to stay simple and used grayish purple lipstick to complete the whole makeup. Please let me know what you think about it in a comment section. Have an awesome day :*

Lots of love,
Liza
