You should already know, that eye makeup is my go to solution for everything beauty related. As a college student, I stayed up at night trying to create the perfect unforgettable gaze. Years later, I have now learned….
Stop and stare makeup, nobody creates that so effortlessly like Dior. Raf Simmons vision for the Ready-to-wear Spring/Summer 2013 line was simple. Forget the lips, focus on the windows of the soul. He noted that over the past couple of years, a lot of focus had been placed too much on the lips. To keep it modern and fresh, he decided to leave the lips nude and focus only on the eyes.
Now you all know, that I have already confessed to not being able to live without mascara. If I was stuck on an Island somewhere and I was allowed one beauty product, it WOULD be mascara. I love it, and it wasn´t until recently that I started changing my mascara every couple of months. You see, I use it constantly, and with constant use and exposure, the risk of contaminating cosmetic items increases. Bacteria transferred can result in adverse skin reactions causing breakouts and infections especially of the eye. What makes it worse is that I wear glasses and contacts and I have really bad allergies. I found that out again this weekend.
Jamaica is one of the best places on earth, not exagerrating, it just is. But being paradise still doesn´t protect us from the crazy heat that we have in summer. Granted the temperatures there most times do not outrun that of a typical American or Krygzstan summer (I know you must be wondering how random it was for me to use that country, but I live in Europe, very few countries are foreign to me). Whether you are in paradise, or it´s neighbors to the north or across the pond, making makeup last all day especially in hot, muggy conditions is an art.
Have you ever stared so hard at a stranger that you feel like a stalker? Well that’s what happened when I saw Aysenur on the streets of Cologne. She was such a breath of fresh air, so I literally raced to catch up to her and her friend and asked if I could take a picture. I am currently obsessing over the eye color block trend; I really love playing up my eyes. Aysenur, of course does this perfectly. If you want to see how that beautiful summery dress equally enchants passersby on the streets of Cologne view it on the slideshow.
