Round Glitter Cut Crease - Soft Romantic Makeup

Happy Valentine's Day!!! Do you celebrate this holiday with your significant other or by yourself? If yes, what how do you celebrate it? Do you have an annual tradition that makes this day special for you (even if it is buying chocolate for yourself)?
I personally don't celebrate Valentine's day, but growing up February 14th was always a big day in our household - because my sister was born on this day! Today isn't an exception - although we are not together physically today, my sister is still having a big birthday party at her place celebrating her special day and I virtually joined her and the guests for a little bit. Happy Birthday, big Sis! I am so blessed to have you in my life. Since our age difference is relatively big, I remember how she would take care of me, teach me many things, help me in many ways and always be there when I needed her. May God grant you the best, always protect you and fill your life with happiness and joy. I love you.
Today is Valentine's day. But don't wait for a special day to tell your loved ones (be it your parents or your partner) how much you love and appreciate them. Remind them about it as often as you can. Love is such a powerful feeling and by giving it you get back even more.
For those of you who are planning a special dinner tonight and haven't finalized their look yet, I decided to publish this post to share this soft romantic makeup idea for Valentine's day. It is a round cut crease look with light touch of glitter, which isn't difficult to recreate and looks beautiful.

Lady Gaga Super Bowl 2017 Halftime Show Inspired Makeup

Hey there! So, who watched Super Bowl last night? Honestly, I'm not a big fan of football, but I'm one of those people who watches the game just to see the Halftime show. However, last night's game was quite interesting, to say the least, and especially, since it was happening in Houston, the energy and vibe of this year's Super Bowl was different for us Houstonians.
Ok, let's talk about Lady Gaga's halftime performance, though? Do I need to say anything? The performance, outfits, makeup, choreography, the entire scene set up, all those lightened up drones... wasn't it just beautiful? Gaga's singing, dancing, music skills, as well as her acrobatic "spiderman" tricks were on point. I loved her appearance last night so much and felt so inspired, so I sat down at my filming corner and recreated her look.

Emma Stone Inspired Makeup Look

Hello my beautiful readers! I know, I know, it's been a while! But I'm back and here to stay! If you follow me on other social media platforms, you pretty much see me there regularly, however I also want to give same attention to my happy place in this web world - my blog! 
Just a quick update, I decided to change my handle names to make it easier for me to do business in the future (all my handle updates are on the home page of the blog), but if you are following me already on other outlets, then it's all still the same, just different name. 
Today I want to share with you beautiful makeup look that was inspired by Emma Stone's makeup from her Golden Globes 2017 appearance. I loved her Old Hollywood style hair and soft makeup, as well as her outfit - everything about this look was just perfect. I thought it is such a wonderful look for upcoming Valentine's day and decided to recreate it.
