How to use up your products

Makeup is great I know but what happens when you have to much of it and waste it because it is more than you can use.
I have a few tips and tricks that might help you with this.

1.Try to only buy limited edition products and only buy regular ones if you really want it or you run out of it.
2.If you have a lot of makeup it is good to organize it by type of products. If you do that you will have a better view of what you have and you will see products that you forgot about.
3.Try to match your makeup to the clothes you are wearing or the other way around. By doing that you will have to change the products and always use different ones.
4.You could also choose products for one look or two and wear it for a week or so and only change it on special occasions.
5.Try keeping products that you want to use up on your vanity or next to your bed .If you do that you will see them and remember to use them.
6.Another trick is to put a lipgloss in your pants or jacket. Especially in winter you are going to look into your jacket and find the lipgloss and use it.

I love mascara and I bet that you love it too but they dry out so quickly and you remain with lots of dried ones. We don’t want to buy new ones because we have too many already and I know what to do to ”repair” them..
7.Add a little bit of rubbing alcohol to your mascaras and shake them. Let them dry after night. If they are still to dry add some rubbing alcohol and if they are to wet let them dry for one more day.

I hope that you found this tips&tricks helpful.Leave a comment below and tell me what you think!

Does FIT ME fits me?

Recently I found a Maybelline set at Rossmann. It has the Maybelline Fit me foundation, the concealer and the powder. It was very affordable and I wanted to try the collection for a long time so I bought the set. It costs about 15€ which is very cheap since only the foundation costs almost 10. Now how good is it? Does it fit me? Do I like it? Keep reading to find out.

 I really like the design. It looks very well made.I have the 120 Classic Ivory. There were only three shades in the set (light, medium, dark). 

I will start with the foudation. The bottle is made out of glass and has a pump. I know that in the US it does not. It is very velvety and blends very well with the skin. It could be a bit lighter but for the sommer days it is good. 
I do not wear foundation just because it never blends with my skin very well not matter what I do. I need a lot of luck to look ok but with this I do not have this problem. It really looks good. I use a beauty blender with this because I think that it looks the best. It is not full coverage and you need a few pumps. It looks shiny but not too shiny. I just use powder on the T-zone and the rest is fine.

Conclusion: Although it has downsides I love it because I can wear it without praying before to look good. I like how it feels when touched and that it matches the skin.

The fit me concealer is not that great. It is not full coverage and that is what I am looking to find in a concealer. It is orangy which I like because it reduces the under eye circles.The packaging looks like a lipgloss and it costs around 5€. I am still looking for a better concealer but for now I use this one. On some days it is good on others not.

Conclusion: It is ok until you find a better one. I would not repurchase it again.

The pressed powder has a gorgeous packaging. It also has a mirror which is good to keep in your bag.
The color is fine and it is nos that pigmented. It looks good and protects your face from getting oily.

Conclusion: To me it is just as good as any pressed powder. It is fine and it keeps your skin oil free more than

other powders.

Maxi Summer

SUNO New York striped dress

Quiz pearl dress
$94 -

Don't you love maxi dresses? This summer that is what we wear.
What is so good about them? Well they are pretty much the whole outfit, are easy to wear and light weight. Let's not forget that they look great and this season is all about maxi dresses.
How can you combine the trends, accesorize them and adjust them to your preferences? Keep reading to find out.

black and white maxi dress - Polyvore
 One of the big trends this year is black & white combination especially with strips. With such a dress I would put on just a few accessories. Like a bracelet since the hands are so naked and maybe some earrings. Since the neck is covered I wouldn't wear a necklace. A great thing about this combination ob colors is that you can either wear black or white shoes. I choose black heels because they are more common. You can always wear flats and it still looks quite put together. 

   floral maxi dress - Polyvore
 The next dresses also combine two trends: floral prints and mint. This dresses look very formal and they just look perfect with wedges. But you can easily dress them down just by wearing flat sandals that are very sleek and not wearing any accessories. If you still want accessories just wear a simple ring or a bracelet. Because of the print the dress is overwhelming and doesn't need many accessories.

blue ombre dress - Polyvore 

This trend is known by everyone. We have an ombre effect on our dress and let us not forget about navy. Navy is always in in the summer time. The dress is not formal and is simple compared with the ones before. It looks great with flat sandals or even with toms but it can be dressed up with a pair of heels. Since it is kind of simple we can play a bit more with jewelry. I chose this big earrings and this leather cord bracelet that is perfect for the navy look. You can add a little necklace but for me the earrings are big enough.

My favorite pick is this dress that can be found on NEXT . I love it because it is very affordable and simple but still has something elegant to it.


Now that you know what to wear go out rock the summer and make the best of it! 

P.S. Don't forget sunscreen and sunglasses!
