Working with nails demands a very special attention and tools. I was always fascinated how nail artist can work so focused and neat on the tiny nail plates. And as a makeup junkie, and a person who like to do her own manicure I know it takes a lot of time and patience to make the nails look professionally done, but there are some useful tools and brushes that can help you to reach this effect even at home. That's why today I wanted to share a review on Unicorn Nail Art Brush Set*, sent to me by Born Pretty Store.

My makeup obsession have started around five years ago and one of the first thing I have discovered in a beauty world is a magical power of BB cream. BB Cream is a perfect choice for a day to day usage, especially if you can`t stand a heavy full coverage foundations or have an exhausted dry skin. The first BB cream I have ever tried was a tube of Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector and it was not good. This cream was too dark for my skin, it had alcohol in the formula and overall was very awful, the only positive thing about this product was an SPF 15.

During the hot summer days, I prefer to highlight my cheekbones using powder highlighters. Dry illuminators, shimmers and highlighters are not greasy, therefore they are the best option for everyone with an oily skin type, especially during the summer.

Pastel rainbow highlighter is such a huge trend at the moment and as always I'm the last person on this planet to try it out myself. That's why today I'm going to review a Rainbow Highlighter Powder* by a famous Born Pretty Store: an online makeup, fashion and jewelry retailer for beauty junkies.
