Today I’ve prepared for you some of my favourite at home beauty tips.

Taking care of your face and your skin is so important these days due to all the pollution that surrounds us. Therefore, I’ve come with 5 face masks you can make at home. I must admit I’ve tried most of them and for me, they made wonders. From smooth and clear skin to even sparkly or matte, depending on my what I need that day.

I’ve always enjoyed bought face masks and the miracles they do, but from time to time it is good for our skin to try something more natural. All the recipes contain natural ingredients, therefore even if you try the mask and it doesn’t work that well for you, there is no harm you can do to your skin. Also, I’ve made a clear selection with masks that can be helpful for every time of skin.

Get your ingredients ready and let’s get you throughout an amazing DYI with products from your own fridge.

Once you finished the mask itself, apply it evenly to your face and keep it on for about fifteen minutes to half an hour. Then, rise it off with water until your face is completely skin. Dry your face with a smooth towel and you are hydrated!

Recipe:

1. Blend the three strawberries with a mixer until their consistency is smooth enough

For the mask to provide visible effects you should try at least two times a month.

The pumpkin in the mask has lots of fruit enzymes and will help in removing the dry cells off of your skin, the honey is a healing tool and the lemon juice confers antibacterial agents and Vitamin C.

5. Avocado and Banana Hydrating Face Mask

This face masks is one of my favourites due to its nourishing and hydrating properties. The avocado is an amazing healer and great as an anti-wrinkle product, the banana helps with moisturising the skin and the honey reduces inflammation and is high in antioxidants.

Today I will share with you the best Spring 2021 make-up looks. From a simple and plain look to a vibrant and colourful one, this Spring, everything is possible ✨

Make-up in 2021 is so much more than just a touch of beauty. You can express yourself through make up whilst completing your look for the day. Embrace it and once you step in a room, you’ll be more radiant than ever – that is the power of good make-up.

Because this Spring the beauty industry has so many new trends you can try, I have put together the ultimate list with the best Spring 2021 make up looks.

Your Face Makeup

Before I start my list, we must take into consideration how different the times we live in are at the moment and how the trends changed over the years. In 2016 you used all your foundation bottles, lots of white concealer, bold contour and defined brows. Well, in 2021 the game has changed a lot.

Therefore, everyone goes for a more natural and glossier look these days. In the list below I will present you 5 different types of Spring make up. However, this paragraph is especially reserved for the face makeup due to its massive change and how natural it is now. You will also find the new trends for eyeshadow and lipstick below.

First of all, before you start your makeup don’t forget to apply some SPF 50 to your face – a must for anti-wrinkles and pigmentation! You can continue with a primer of your choice but I can suggest you try a shimmering one.

After these two important steps, you will start applying foundation in a small quantity and complete the look with a bit of concealer. Even if some time ago no one liked using blush, in 2021 I feel that you have to. Apply the blush and the contour considering your face shape and what points out your beautiful features. When it comes to your brows, you can try the soap brows trend or just draw them in a natural way. Complete your look with mascara or some foxy fake eyelashes.

1. Monochromatic

Be confident and risk it all with a monochromatic look. You can start with a radiant pink eyeshadow and use the exact same colour on your lips. This look is taken out of a fashion editorial , therefore you will look different and electric once you’ve finished your make up.

2. Bold Blush

Try blending some blush on your cheeks, temples and underneath your brow bones. This trend will make you look just like a spring fairy and will totally enlighten all of your face and features out in a natural and charming way. The best Spring 2021 make-up looks continues!

3. Gold Glitter Lids

After applying some brown toned eyeshadow, cut crease your lids and apply some powerful gold glitter pigment. Your whole face will brighten up and you will still look like a fashion icon this spring.

4. Add a bit of sparkle

This glitter trend created actually one of the best Spring 2021 make up looks. After you put on a base of nude eyeshadow, you should apply some glitter primer and then apply those wonderful little rhinestones that will level up your look for the day.

5. The nude lips are back

The nude lips are back and better than ever. The only thing you’ll have to do in order to complete this look is to line your lips with a nude lip pencil and then apply some gloss over. This look is not only easy to recreate but it is also such a trend and an inspiration for casual Spring days.

All things considered, these were the best Spring 2021 make up looks that I recommend you to try. Have you tried these trends and which one is your favourite?

Until next time,

What are the best high street fashion buys for Spring 2021 and how to easily improve your own style?

I remember the time when I used to see how key the S/S season was in every fashion magazine I bought. The shoes, dresses and accessories I used to thrive for and how nice was to develop my very own style whilst inspired by them. I grew up watching fashion influencers become icons.

I believe style plays such an important role in contouring a personality and in expressing yourself. Therefore, I have prepared this article for every fashionista at heart. I made lots of research and put together some of the most wanted high end fashion street buys S/S 2021. Continue reading to discover the best items to buy this Spring.

THE silk dress

You can never go wrong with THE silk dress. The first wave of the silk dresses trend was actually back in the 90s and it could be found on every red carpet. Celebrities like Rihanna wore it and completely brought life to it.

Nowadays, we wear silk dresses pretty differently and fashion icons adapted it for the times we live in. For example, if you are going for a classy and elegant look you can wear a red velvet silk dress with some refined pearls as accessories. You will look powerful and trendy at the same time.

However, if you are going for a quite casual look, wearing a green-toned silk dress with a cozy cardigan is the right look for you. The cardigan will keep you warm and casual and the dress will complete the look with a touch of elegance and femininity.

A pop of yellow

Another one of the best high street fashion buys S/S 2021 I recommend trying is wearing a yellow piece.

Firstly, yellow is the colour of happiness and you can’t argue with me that this colour doesn’t go perfectly with the S/S fashion.

A colour as bright and radiant will complete your look and will totally define your whole outfit.

For example, wearing a yellow suit accompanied by a same colour bag will make your outfit pop and glow. You are totally taking a risk with this fit. It can either go wonderfully or horribly, there’s now way in between. But isn’t this how fashion works?

Although, if you are looking for something safer you can never go wrong with yellow and brown tones. Even if yellow and brown seem to remind people of Autumn, wearing the right pieces and choosing the right textures will do you good. You can pick a yellow skirt so you make a statement and a brown toned blazer to cool things down.

Purity

2020-2021 is the time when women all over the world chose to be natural. The Instagram brows became as natural as possible, the dark and toned contouring also cooled and people now tend to choose just a touch of contour to define their features. Also, wearing blush is much more trendier than it used to be.

All of these changes made femininity and purity quite a trend in 2021. Women chose to embrace their more natural selves and to exploit their angelic features.

Therefore, white and sandy colours are now more fashionable than ever. Choosing to wear a ruffle white dress will make you look feminine and classy at the same time. Also, because of how pure the colour is, the whole outfit should make you look heavenly.

You will never do wrong with this type of fit because it makes you stand out throughout its simplicity.

Pastel looks

Pastel looks are completely one of the best high street fashion buys S/S 2021.

Pastels have been in the game for quite a long time. But one things is for sure, third time we use this expression, let’s change a pastel look, especially in 2021.

A baby blue pastel suit provides you many different ways of styling it.

You can either go for an elegant look and style the suit with a dazzling pair of sandals. Or, you can style it with some beautifully and more coloured pair of sneakers. It’s up to you!

Pretty in pink

The Chanel 2021 spring fashion show thought us how to perfectly put in place an amazing and up to date pink outfit.

Go for pink trousers and style them with a top in the same colour. You can always add accessories and details in different tones of the colour that you’ve chosen to complete your look.

Also, associating a colour as gentle as pink with some chains totally makes a statement. Try it yourself and enjoy how powerful you’ll feel.

All things considered, those were my 5 best high street fashion buys S/S 2021. What a controversial season I must say. What is your opinion on it and what would you add to my list?

XOXO,
