Expensive packaging and innovative formula do not always mean better results for your skin. Sometimes all it needs is a good homemade mask your countryside granny used to apply on her face regularly (and she still looks young and beautiful). I am a huge fan of inelaborate facials, which are easily recreated at home and done in a few minutes. Chop this, whisk with that, apply on the skin, and voilĂ  - it is refreshed, brightened, and toned up! Doesn't it sound amazing?

Every makeup lover knows that you can't have too many eyeliners in your beauty arsenal. All of them are very handy when you need to provide an extra sass to the eyes. Pencil eyeliners and eye kohls are irreplaceable when it comes to a smokey eye, gel eyeliners are best for the iconic smudged Megan Fox eye look and liquid eyeliners create the best, sharp as a knife's blade cat eyes. But, finding a good-working eyeliner could be just as hard, as defining those wings. Some makeup artists spend years and years in the search for high-performance eyeliner.

Let's be honest, lovelies, we don't need to have a ton of high-end makeup products to look our best. Of course, it is always nice to treat yourself with an expensive makeup palette or a newly-released foundation, yet we still come back to well-known brands that work well on our skin. Most makeup products have a limited shelf life. For example, it is recommended to change mascara every few months, and who wants to spend those hard-earned pennies on mascara? Therefore, today we are going to talk about makeup products, which you can save your money on.

"New year, new me" is what I always say to myself at the end of every December month. The beginning of a brand-new decade is an ideal time to start following my old promises and to remember them all, this year I have finally decided to put together the five most crucial testaments which I shall thoroughly follow in 2020. Hopefully, some of you may find them useful and will join me on the path to better fashion choices. Shall we begin?

Quality Basics Over Prints


I would like to start my year by slowly, but surely substituting all of my old harshly-printed pieces with more moderate items. Animal prints and bright-colored tees are going to be left behind, liberating the space for trendy, yet timeless clothes. In the new year, I pretend to acquire a moderate pile of basic clothing: high-quality blouses from natural, breezy materials, pure-colored t-shirts, and sweaters, and comfy shoes that go well with the rest of the basics. I pretend to check the range of minimalist t-shirts at the store. 

The Less is More


This simple verity comes with age, I guess. The less is always more, and it concerns not only our food preferences lifestyle beliefs but also our clothing. It isn't hard to be charmed by the cheap cute clothes, but what is more important is to find that one, unique piece that makes you happy and compliments the rest of your current wardrobe. For many years I've committed the same old fashion crime — impulsive fashion purchases which left me with a bunch of incompatible clothing. Therefore one of the priority fashion goals for this year is leaving this nasty fashion habit behind.

A Path to Personal Style


Another important fashion goal I aspire to finally reach in 2020 is to finally discover my personal style. Of course, for the past three (or even more) years I have already been working on my wardrobe, yet for a person who doesn't have a good fashion sense struggles with every purchase, this path is significantly more complicated. But, I don't give up easily on my hopes, especially on my fashion hopes.

A Dress to Impress


One of the best fashion rules, that always saves my bad fashion taste, sounds like this: "If you have no experience in the field of fashion and don't know how to create a good-looking outfit — wear a dress". It is so much easier to find a dress that will look good on your body type and spice it up with a few accessories, than build up a fashionable ensemble from scratch. Thus, I plan to stock up with a few cute dresses which are going to save me on the days, when I don't feel like pondering on my look.

Brand New Silhouettes


And, finally, a few thoughts on new experiences. The whole fashion industry fights for discovering fresh silhouettes for modern ladies and gentlemen, while I was stuck in old-fashioned skinny jeans and baggy sweaters. Life is too short for old habits, so I expect to break the wall of boring silhouettes with a refreshing wind of experiments. I'm not sure exactly what it is going to be, but my wardrobe is better to be prepared for the new inmates. Do you have any fashion ideas for the new year? Please, don't keep me waiting and tell your thoughts in the comment section, I'm excited to hear your thoughts!

Lots of love,
Liz

makeup collage with a step-by-step makeup look inspired by Yennefer from the Witcher

I bet everyone had a chance to enjoy the latest Netflix original series based on a series of books The Witcher Saga by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. Last year I had the pleasure to play The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt role-playing game based on the same game, so I was overjoyed to start watching the series. For every hardcore fan of the novels — give this adaptation a little chance, and for those who never heard about The Witcher — don't miss an opportunity to derive pleasure from books, games, and series.
