Collaboration With Nisrette From Smarter Life Tips And Tricks


I have been blogging for more than 5 years now, and sometimes blogging alone could be a bit boring.

I met an old friend of mine, Nisrette, a while ago. We were together in university, she had her 1st blog in 2013 under the LazyNiss, she used to blog about fitness and Beauty in Arabic. I featured here in one of my #MeetTheBlogger series, you can check it here.

Recently she created a new blog, where she will be blogging about Tips and Tricks for a Smarter Life!

We  both have a passion for beauty products, at it happened that we both have a combination skin and interested to find products that suit our type of skin. We’re active and energetic and enjoy the simple things in life.

And it hit us… Why not start a series of collaborations together!

Magical Make-up Remover: Bioderma Sensibio H2O


Women take their time to choose their make-up remover, because they don’t want to come home late at night and spend a lot of time fighting with their make-up and clean their faces.

I got introduced to Bioderma Sensibio H2O a while ago, and I fell in love with it.

This famous micellar solution is very effective and soft on the eyes, plus you can use it for cleansing all your face! What’s amazing about it is that it needs no rubbing to remove your thick coats of mascara, and you won’t witness any redness.

How to use it?

shooting 172

Soak a cotton pad with Sensibio H2O and cleanse the face and eyes and/or remove any make-up. Repeat the application until the cotton pad remains clean.

It needs no rinsing. Dry gently. Dab your face with a clean cotton towel.

Can be used daily, morning, and evening.

It can also be used on no make up days, if you just want to remove all the dirt from the environment.

 

I had the small size first, but then I got addicted, I got the Large size 😉

Did you try it? I would love to hear your opinion? 🙂

Put on your best party suit and a bit of festive facial glam with Lush’s shimmering makeup range, and you’ll be sure to shine all season long.

LUSH liquid eyeliners are vegan and made with two different types of base – Independent and Fantasy. These have a no-smudge, stay-put formula so your makeup will be party-proof all night long!

Cream Eyeshadow

The cupuaçu butter in the eyeshadows helps to set the color pigment nicely, so they offer beautiful color which doesn’t set straight away, giving you plenty of time to blend and get your look just right.

 

Liquid Lipstick

Lush’s liquid lipsticks have a super softening base, which is a simple blend of organic jojoba oil, candelia wax and rose wax. As well as being intensely skin-softening and soothing, the base also carries pigment incredibly well, so your lips will stay fabulous throughout the night.

Question 1: We know that you have a deep love for fashion, can you tell us more how it started and how you decided to have a fashion blog?

Hello 😀

We are twins that’s right, but each one had love for something: Anna always loved writing and the online community. And Maria was always good in drawing, sketching and designing. We noticed that year by year, we become a bit far from each other: we have different works, each one her own group… so we decided to create something that will bound us again: our choice was evident. We love fashion, we love photography and travel. We started our fashion blog 😀

We began the photo shoots and posts were coming up. We got amazing feedbacks that encouraged us more.  At the beginning, we wanted to share our personal style and inspirations. Post after post, we wanted to show that it is possible to stay fashionable while being on a small budget and also show that it is ok to wear your clothes over and over again – you just need to be creative and combine the right items and accessories.

Question 2: What is your favorite summer trend?

For this summer we choose crop tops and denim. We just adore those items:D

We are also in love with floral patterns and mixing prints procedure. We like the white and black neutrals and we are having fun with logo shirts 😉

 

Question 3: From where do you get your inspiration?

We draw inspiration from anything and everything around us: it can be people on the streets, movies, nature, art exhibitions, bloggers, TV shows and music…

 

Question 4: What is the one thing that you can’t leave the house without?

Anna: make up item: mascara

Other item: pen and a small notebook.

Maria: make up item: lipstick

Other item: necklace and a bar of chocolate 😛

Question 5: What are the colors that you feel more comfortable with?

Anna: I love nude light colors like pink and blue which are very trendy this year. Pastel tones. They show feminism and lot of simplicity, elegance and a chic spirit! I Love also the Leopard texture, it is really fun to play with such patterns and mix it with others.

Maria: on top of my list comes the WHITE color. I love the pastel colors as well.

TEN Minutes Office Makeup!


For the people who don’t know me, I am a makeup and cosmetics freak. I spend hours and hours in the makeup department in the malls, I ask questions about new products, textures, tips for mixed skin…

I used to wear makeup, not on a daily basis. But since I moved to my new job, which requires to be always looking smart and sharp, I learned how to apply makeup in a fast way, especially that I have to wake up earlier than I used to before.

For today’s look, I’m using my favorite products this season, and that I use mainly for day makeup.

10_mn_makeup

 

After cleansing my face and applying the day cream, my skin is ready for make up!

I start by applying the concealer:

If I’m at home, I use a brush, and if I’m in the car (while parked, not driving), I just tap it with the ring finger.

The concealer I’m using at the moment is the Make Up Forever Lift Concealer (#3)

More than just a concealer! It contains tensine, an active ingredient with skin-firming properties for the eye area, and vitamins A and E, which regenerate the skin. This multipurpose product also conceals specific, darker areas and can be used as a highlighter on the more prominent parts of the face (cheekbones, forehead, and chin) for added radiance.

Then I apply the Clear Smooth Powder by Maybelline, all over my face and neck. It has SPF25 and I’m using the nude beige (#02). If you didn’t read my previous review, you can check it here.

Then I apply eye shadow, to go quick I use one or two shades maximum, and since it’s a day makeup, I choose the lightest shades.

Here I’m using the Pink Shimmer Cubes by the Body Shop, a palette of four subtle iridescent shades to mix and match. I didn’t know about them, until recently, the first time I saw them, I thought I will be looking all shiny, but it depends on how you use them. I usually use the first two shades during the day, I don’t apply a lot and they give a lovely radiant look to my eyes.

Then I apply the eyeliner, here I chose the Dark Blue Duo-Chrome by Bourjois, I just line up the upper lash-line.

Now is the time to apply the mascara, to enhance the eyes. In this look I’m using the Miss Manga by L’Oreal. 

Miss manga features a 360 degree flexible brush for effortless application.
Its unique brush has a flat surface to intensify and amplify upper lashes while its conical shape capture the lower lashes. Formulated with collagen spheres and polymers for ultimate volume and hold.

To complete the look, I add a hint of blush, I’m using the at the moment the Prisme Powder Blush by Givenchy, and touch of Maybelline Sensational Lipstick (# 250 Mystic Mauve).

And sometimes I apply a touch of the Rose Lip gloss by The Body Shop, to give the lips a glossy luster.

That was a lot of writing, but if you can master your technique, It will only take 10 minutes of your precious time!

I hope you like my look and stay tuned for more makeup looks and tips 🙂
