INSIDE MY MAKEUP BAG

I get a lot of questions about my favourite beauty products, so today I wanted to share with you what’s always in my makeup bag and my must haves. I really want to start incorporating more beauty/hair posts into my blog because just as obsessed as I am with fashion, I am with makeup and hair! So, no hiding those beautiful faces behind your Dior sunglasses anymore ladies! I’m starting off here with some of my favourite products:

  1. Burberry ‘Fresh Glow’ Luminous – I mix this with my face lotion and it automatically gives your skin a youthful, luminous glow. Especially if you’re in a situation where you aren’t wearing any make up – at the beach, etc- you can just put a little on to give your face that extra radiant pop.
  2. Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizing Balm – If you are into the dewy, moist-skin look this is a MUST have product. I use it every day and I feel like it’s made my skin look so much younger. It’s not the kind of thing you would use for a photoshoot- but for real life everyday wear I think it’s the fountain of youth. I’d suggest trying a sample first before buying because some people think it’s a bit oily- but for me I love the dewy look.
  3. Dior ‘DiorshowMaximizer’ Lash Plumping Serum- people always ask me if I curl my lashes, if I have eyelash extensions, fake lashes, etc- the answer is no. The key to long lashes is using a great eyelash primer first and slowly curling the lashes upwards. This one is my favourite.
  4. KerastaseCristalliste Lumiere Liquide Serum- I love a good hair shine serum. I have probably 50 different kinds. This is one of my favourites because it’s so lightweight, it doesn’t weigh your hair down and it smells amazing.
  5. Nars Liquid Illuminator in Laguna– A great liquid bronzer. I mix a pin sized amount into my foundation for an extra bronze glow.
  6. Nars Liquid Illuminator in Orgasm- A mix of gold, peach and pink shimmer that I rub onto my cheek bones- it can act as blush alone for a natural rosy glow, or mixed with a darker colour for a more deep blushed look.
  7. Korres Wild Rose Lip Butter– My favourite lip colour- it’s a lip balm stain. And at only $12 it’s a must buy. I keep one in every one of my bags.
  8. Nars ‘Fast Ride’ Lipstick- a deep dark berry stain, it’s my go to colour for a night on the town.
  9. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle perfume– my favourite scent. Enough said.
  10. Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-light Skin Perfecting Makeup– I’ll thank my mom for finding this one. The best super lightweight foundation. Almost feels like you’re wearing nothing, and it goes to show it’s perfect for all ages.

Exploring the New Details for the Best Leggings

For some years now, leggings have become basic basics. These pantyhose without feet have permanently invested wardrobes, for better and for worse. For, while it has long been used as a sportswear or even men’s underwear, leggings are now worn in the same way as pants. But because it’s ultra-slim, it’s not always easy to wear every day. Back on this garment become unavoidable.

The long underpants of the 80s

It was in the 80s that the leggings experienced its first hour of glory. At that time, he pulled out underwear drawers to become a women’s sports accessory. Women wear it for their gym and aerobics sessions. It is then long and tight underpants, often in lira or nylon, black, flu, lame or decorated with motley patterns. It is then with a body, gaiters, sneakers, a wide t-shirt. This boxer is sometimes equipped with a band that retains the tights under the foot. With a visit to Womens yogalicious you will have the best you look for now.

There is no doubt that you should not sacrifice your comfort for the style when shopping for your sportswear and that is why it can be difficult to find the right clothes.

Good sportswear can really make the difference between a workout that’s going well, and a workout you’ll never want to repeat. For this reason, it’s important to invest in stylish but comfortable pieces.

We still make the mistake of buying the wrong sportswear.  We buy leggings that are beautiful, but are not comfortable, stretchy or do not breathe. the list is long.

Stop repeating these mistakes and start shopping for proper sportswear.

Here are the key elements to buy the right comfortable sport leggings.

Choose the right material

First, you need to pay close attention to the material in which your sports leggings are made. Choose an extensible fabric that will allow you to move in all directions. Also, make sure the fabric is breathing and comfortable. Avoid rough fabrics.  A blend of nylon and Lycra is an excellent choice of soft and comfortable composition.

Find the right fit

Unlike your everyday clothes, your sports leggings must be tight and snug. Too loose clothing will rub on your skin and this could cause irritation. Who wants to spend his time putting up these leggings after each step? Instead, opt for fitted leggings and make sure you choose the right size.

Consider your workouts

Finally, think about the types of activities and training you do most often and shop for appropriate athletic clothing. Fortunately, in most cases, you cannot go wrong with tight fitting leggings that will fit almost any activity. Complete your outfit with a high performance and you’ll be ready for your next training.
