HOW TO FIX A HIGHLIGHTER, BLUSH ETC.

Read Article →
Olen pikalt lükanud edasi selle postituse tegemist, sest ei leidnud kuidagi aega oma särapuudri parandamiseks. Kasutasin seda siiski iga päev väga ettevaatlikult, et maha ei pudeneks, ning iga kord mõtlesin, et võiks selle protseduuri ikkagi ette võtta. Nüüd jõudiski see aeg kätte! Nii hea tunne, kui toode on ikka ühes tükis ja pole karta, et see enda või millegi muu peale võiks kukkuda. Mida siis lauvärvi, põsepuna või särapuudri parandamiseks vaja läheb?

I have postponed doing this post for quite some time now, because I just couldn't find the time to fix my highlighter. I was still using it very carefully every day because I didn't want it to spill. And every time I used it I thought to myself that I should fix it as soon as possible. The time has finally come! It's a liberating feeling when it's fixed again and there's no fear that it would fall onto me or something else. So what do you need to fix your eyeshadow, blush or highlighter?
1. viin 2. lusikas 3. ümmargune tasapind 4. taldrik
1. vodka 2. spoon 3. round surface 4. plate 
Purusta toodet võimalikult palju, et ei oleks tükkis.
Break up the powder as much as you can so there wouldn't be any big pieces.
 Lisa viina, kuid järk-järgult, et ei oleks liiga palju ega liiga vähe.
Add vodka bit by bit so there wouldn't be too little nor too much.
 Sega toodet viinaga lusika teise poolega, et kõik oleks vedelikuga koos ja pehme.
Mix the product with vodka with the other end of the spoon so that all of it would be damp and soft.
 Et pressida toode siledaks, kasuta ringikujulist tasapinda. Suurus oleneb toote suurusest, mida soovid parandada. Võid paberi asemel kasutada ka sokki või midagi muud, mis üleliigse vedeliku endasse võtaks.
Use a round surface to press the product smoothly and evenly in the pan. The size of the surface depends on the product you are trying to fix. You can also use a sock or something similar to that instead of paper because the excess moisture has to be removed from the mixture.
Ja ongi valmis! Mina lasin ühe õhtu ja öö kuivada enne, kui hakkasin uuesti kasutama :)
Aaand it's done! I let the product dry for one evening and one night before I started using it again :)

MY FAVE EXFOLIATIORS

Read Article →
Mulle meeldib paar korda nädalas nahka koorida, et nahatooni ja -pinda ühtlustada ning esile tuua värskust. Praegusel ajahetkel on mul kaks lemmikut toodet ning nad erinevad üksteisest päris palju.

Vasakul pool on SUPERMOOD Youth Glo Luxury Peel, mis sisaldab naturaalseid AHA happeid ja puuviljade ekstrakte. See koorija on intensiivne! Toodet tohib nahal hoida maksimaalselt 60 sekundit. Esimestel kordadel soovitan alustada kuskil 30 sekundiga. Oluline on teada ka seda, et pärast maha pesemist läheb nahk väga punaseks! Kui päris aus olla, siis ma alguses ehmusin ära :D Iga inimese nahk reageerib nii erinevalt, aga mul kadus punetus paari tunniga ära. Olen harjunud Luxury Peel'i kasutama õhtuti ning hommikuks on kindlasti juba kõik korras :)

Paremal pool asub M.A.C Mineralize Volcanic Ash Exfoliator. Kui eelmine koorija ei sisaldanud pisikesi koorivaid osakesi, siis selle tootega on lugu teistsugune. Toodet näole masseerides on tõesti selline tunne, et koorid ja puhastad nahka sügavuti. Ehk kellelegi jaoks on see tähtis :) Ja minu arust on nii kihvt, et koorija on musta värvi.

-------------

I like to exfoliate my skin couple of times a week so that my skin tone and texture would be more even and it would glow. At the moment I have two favourite products which differ from each other in texture quite a lot.

On the left side there is SUPERMOOD Youth Glo Luxury Peel which contains AHA acids and fruit extracts. This exfoliator is intense! You can leave it on for 60 seconds max. First two or three times when you try it perhaps cut the time down to 30 seconds. It is very important to know that after you wash the product off your face your skin will turn very red! To be honest, the very first time I used it I was quite worried that my face would burn off :D Every individual's skin reacts in a different way but as for me the redness faded away in two hours. I still use it before going to bed so by the time I wake up my skin tone is back to normal :)

On the right side there is M.A.C Mineralize Volcanic Ash Exfoliator. On the contrary to the other exfoliator, this scrub contains tiny specs that exfoliate your skin. When you massage it onto your face you really feel like all the dirt is coming out of your pores. Maybe someone finds that aspect important :) Btw, I think it's cool that the exfoliator is black.

SHOUT-OUT | CHRISELLE LIM

Read Article →

Mul on tunne, et sellel naisel on lihtsalt maagilised võimed. Muidugi on tal andekas tiim ja rahalised vahendid, et selliseid videoid toota, aga vaadake ta stiili!! Iga video, mis Chriselle üles laeb, on nagu miniatuurne film. Samuti meeldib mulle asjaolu, et kuigi ta kannab kalleid disainer riideid, jääb ta iseendaks ja lisab oma humoorikusega vürtsi. Väärtustan ka seda, et ta näitab oma kanali vaatajatele telgitagust elu, mis ei ole alati nii glamuurne :D

------------------

This woman seems to have a magical touch on everything. Yes, she has the funds and her talented team to make everything come alive perfectly but look at her style!!! I feel like every new video she uploads is like a miniature movie. I also like the fact that even though she wears very expensive designer items she has fun with her videos and shows the raw part of behind the scenes.

Mauve Make-up Tutorial

Read Article →

Seda on raske ette kujutada, kuid minu esimesest Youtube meigivideost on möödunud juba üle 6 aasta. Mu elu on vahepeal tohutult muutunud. Tunnen, et olen nüüd jõudnud tagasi sinna kohta, kuhu ma algselt suuna võtsin.

Minu plaan oli peamiselt keskenduda oma Youtube kanalile, kuid jagada videoid ka oma blogis. Eestis on mõlema omamine mõttekam kui ühe, sest meil on vist palju rohkem blogide lugejaid? Mõttekam just sellepärast, et siis on inimesi, kellega suhelda. Ma ei tee neid videoid ja postitusi endale. Mul ei ole ju vaja neid endale vaatamiseks üles laadida :)

Peamine põhjus, miks ma teiega oma mõtteid jagan, on see, et mu eesmärk oli kodumaa piiridest väljapoole vaadata. Kahjuks oli sel ajal minu inglise keele sõnaline oskus peaaegu et olematu. Kui keegi on tähele pannud, siis minu ellu on lisandunud üks tore noormees ja tema on mind inglise keeles rääkima pannud. Kohe kindlasti on mul arenemisruumi, aga ma olen valmis harjutama, kukkuma läbi ja harjutama veelgi rohkem.

Ma vaatan siiani Youtube videoid tunduvalt rohkem kui blogisi ning mulle ausalt öeldes meeldib videoid rohkem teha kui postitusi piltide ja tekstiga. Outfit'i postitused on teine teema, need on ka minu jaoks huvitavad :) Miks mulle videod meeldivad? Sest siis näeb palju paremini inimese isiksust, tema siiraid emotsioone ja tõepärasust.

Ma olen aastatega tähele pannud ka seda, et kahjuks ei ole Eestis palju inimesi, kellele a) meeldib meik VÄGA b) tahab sellel teemal arutleda/ arvamusi jagada c) võtta aega kommenteerimiseks. Reaalsus on see, et Youtube on selliseid keskkondi täis, kuid seal käib suhtlemine peamiselt inglise keeles.

Ausalt öeldes mulle ei meeldi ennast liigselt selgitada, aga ma lihtsalt tundsin, et pean ühe sellise postituse tegema. Nii saan jagada teiega oma kogemust ja nägemust nii blogija kui ka "tarbijana". Ma tõesti hoolin oma lugejatest ja ma tean, et on inimesi, kes siiralt soovivad, et teeksin videoid eesti keeles.. Aga ma olen pikalt kaalunud ning jõudnud ikkagi sama otsuseni välja.

Mida ma siis lõppudelõpuks öelda tahtsin? :D Ma loodan, et mu mõtted ei kandunud kellelegi valesti üle, sest mul on väsimusest juba üks silm kinni :D Soovin kinnitada, et mulle meeldib blogida- see on osa minust. Videod on veelgi südamelähedasemad. Tundsin lihtsalt seda, et nüüd on aeg vastata oma igatsusele teha videoid inglise keeles. Ma ei oska sellest muudatusest midagi kindlat oodata, aga ma tegin vähemalt oma osa :) Kirjalikud postitused on jätkuvalt kahes keeles.

*Toodete list on Youtube'is video all description box'is.

----------------

It has been over 6 years since I uploaded my very first make-up video on Youtube. My life has changed so much throughout the years and I'm now in a place where I want to go back to my first plan regarding my Youtube channel. 

In the beginning, my intention was to focus mostly on my channel and share the videos here on my blog too. I also decided to do them in English because I had always wanted to branch out from Estonia. Sadly my English was terrible back then but lately I have had a lot of practice.. Thanks babe if you are reading :D I know you are!

I still watch Youtube videos way more than blogs and I like doing videos more than doing blog posts with pictures and writing. Sharing outfit photos with you is another thing. I like doing that :D But videos give a much better idea of the human behind the content. You can see all the sincere emotions and truthfulness. I have also noticed that there aren't many people in Estonia who a) love make-up b) want to talk about it and share opinions c) take the time to comment. Truth is that Youtube is full of that but everything goes on mostly in English.

Thing is, I don't like to explain myself very much but I felt like I needed to talk about this with you because I care about you and I know there are people who want me to keep on doing videos in Estonian. I'm truly sorry but I have thought about it for a long time and I finally came to conclusion that this option is best in a long run. When I do posts where I write then those will be in both languages- Estonian and English :)

So what does it mean regarding my blog? I hope that my thoughts didn't come across the wrong way because I'm so tired that my eyes are half way closed :D I want to confirm that I love blogging, it's part of my life and I enjoy doing it. But videos are even closer to my heart. I just felt that it's time to answer my heart's prayer to do videos in English. I am not expecting anything specific to happen but at least I did my part :)

GET YOUR FRINGE ON

Read Article →
Kui ma õigesti mäletan, siis ma mainisin ühes vlogis, et käisime Adelinega pildistamas. See juhtus juba mõni nädal tagasi ning ma ei oska tõesti öelda, miks ma neid pilte kohe üles ei pannud. Kõik, mis ma oskan öelda, on see, et mu elu on nii ettearvamatu ning kui asi puudutab igapäevaelu, siis ma lähen lihtsalt vooluga kaasa. Ma ei ole üldjuhul suur planeerija, kuigi mulle meeldib planeerida. Väga veider. Aga jah, tõenäoliselt pole see kõige targem viis elamiseks :D Millised teie olete? :)

------------------

I think I mentioned in one vlog that we had a photoshoot with Adeline. It was couple of weeks ago for sure. I don't know why but I never uploaded the photos :D I guess my life is just so unexpected and I mainly go with the flow. I'm not a big planner when it comes to everyday life but that's probably nothing to be proud of. Should I say, don't try this at home :D? ( Weird thing is that I actually like planning stuff ) What about you? :)

My experience with Vita Liberata

Read Article →
Hehee, tegin need pildid täna hommikul üpris unise näoga :D Aga olen rõõmus, et seda tegin, sest siis paistis veel päike ning valgus oli ilus :)

Mõni aeg tagasi sain katsetamiseks luksuslikke Vita Liberata isepruunistavaid tooteid ning nüüd on õige aeg teiega jagada oma kogemust. Miks ma otsustasin tooteid proovida? Need on mittetoksilised, orgaanilised, ei sisalda parabeene, alkoholi ega parfüümi. Toodetel on patenteeritud Odour Remove™ tehnoloogia.

Kui soovite teada, miks ja kuidas meeldib mulle kasutada isepruunistavaid vahte, siis lugege seda postitust SIIN! 

-----------------

I made these photos in the morning while still being a bit sleepy. But I'm glad I did them because the sun was still out. Right now it's cloudy and the lighting isn't that good :)

Some time ago I received a gift from Vita Liberata which is a brand that does luxurious self tanning products. I've tested the mousse couple of times and I feel that now is a good time to share my experience with you. Why did I decide to try them out? They are non-toxic, organic, free from parabens, alcohol and perfume. All products contain Odour Remove™ technology.
Täpsemalt räägin siis uuest vahust ( medium toon ), mis tuli välja Fabulous 2016 kollektsiooniga. See on mõeldud nii kehale kui ka näole ning sisaldab unikaalset Moisture Locking süsteemi, et nahk püsiks kauem niisutatuna.


Ma ei tea, kes teist St Tropez isepruunistavat vahtu on proovinud, aga Vita Liberata vahu toon on natukene kuldsem. Ma arvan, et kui asi puudutab tooni, siis see oleneb eelistusest. Mulle meeldivad mõlemad. Vita Liberata vahu juures meeldib see, et ta on koostiselt palju puhtam ning kestab kauem. Mina toodet peale kandes mingisugust lõhna ei tundnud.

Peale kandsin kindaga ning see oli väga mugav. Pärast kasutust pesin seebiga puhtaks ning lasin kuivada. Järgmine kord töötas sama hästi :) Mulle isegi meeldib kindaga peale kanda, kuigi eelnevalt olin harjunud toodet paljaste kätega nahka masseerima.

Ma soovitan soojalt mitte pesta toodet maha enne 8-12h mõjumisaega. Kasutusjuhendis soovitatakse lasta mõjuda 4-8h ja maha pestes mitte kasutada duššigeeli. Kui ma esimene kord lasin 12h mõjuda ja kasutasin duššigeeli, siis läks kõik väga sujuvalt. Aga kui ma üks kord lasin mõjuda 6h ning kasutasin duššigeeli, siis jäi mõnest kohast natukene laiguline. Kui minu viga vältida, siis on pealekandmine ning mahavõtmine kerge :)

Kui kellelgi tekkis huvi seda toodet proovida, siis mul on hea uudis, sest kuni pühapäevani on Fabulous kreem (dark) ja vaht (medium) Stockmannis Hullude Päevade raames 18.50€, muidu 29.90€. Kinnas on 3.90€, muidu 5.90€ :)

-----------------

The mousse gives a medium tone to the skin and I'd say that it is a bit more golden than the St Tropez mousse that I was used to using before. It has a unique Moisture Locking System for long lasting hydration. I really feel that after washing off the product my skin isn't extremely dry. It is meant for the body and the face but I have only used it on my body so far.

What I really like about this product is that the formula is organic and it lasts longer on the skin than the St Tropez mousse. I also didn't smell anything while I was applying the product on my skin. I also recommend the tanning mitt. Previously I was used to applying the self tan with my bare hands but now I would definitely prefer the mitt.

I strongly recommend not to wash the product off before 8-12 hours. They recommend allowing it to work it's magic for 4-8 hours but I think that's not enough. The more the better. They also don't recommend washing it off with a shower gel. When I kept it on for 12 hours and washed it off with a shower gel then everything went very smoothly. But when I washed it off with a shower gel after 6 hours then some parts of my skin were left a bit blotchy.

If you want to try this mousse out and you live in Tallinn then I have good news for you :) Right now it's on sale at Stockmann until Sunday for 18.50€ (29.90€) and the mitt is 3.90€ (5.90€).
