Today I am sharing with you another makeup tutorial I created for the MyMake-up channel. In the video I used the L’Oréal Paris True Match trio – two of the products are completely new to the market: the compact powder and the concealer. The focus is therefore on creating a perfect base, which is a “must” for any perfect makeup look. I finished my look with the reverse eyeliner look and a gorgeous brown shade on the lips. The same look I also created for the DM campaign as one of the autumn makeup trends. I also wore it at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Ljubljana. I hope you enjoy!

I created the perfect base & reverse eyeliner look with the following products:
L’Oréal Paris True Match foundation (2C/2N)
L’Oréal Paris True Match concealer (2C/2N)
L’Oréal Paris True Match Ultra-Perfecting powder (2N Vanilla)
L’Oréal Paris Glam Bronze Duo
L’Oréal Paris Brow Artist Xpert eyebrow pencil (102 Cool Blond)
L’Oréal Paris La Pallete Nude eyeshadow palette
L’Oréal Paris Super Liner Super Perfect Slim eyeliner
L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Le Smoky pencil
L’Oréal Paris Paradise Extatic mascara
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Palette (01 Pink)
L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Matte lipstick (634 Greige Perfecto)

As a famous comedian Chelsea Handler once said, “we women have to stick together”. A quote that I live and swear by. Even though years have taught me not all female (or male for that matter) relationships work and that sometimes one can even turn their back on you, the years have also taught me that finding the right tribe of women can bring you closer to happiness, success and fulfilment. Women can be your greatest allies, believe me. The past 5 years in a highly competitive and fairly new business, blogging, have taught me that you simply cannot trust everyone. But on the other hand I also found some true friends, women who encourage me and help me be better and better – in life and in business. Supporting other woman’s work will not make yours less successful, less visible or less important. It will make you a greater person. And as all things come back as boomerang, your support will be manifested in the support you will get back. One way or the other.

Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women, who have her back.

Why can’t all women just be nice to each other? Or at least not being mean? Even today in the modern era, women are still unequal and sexism is still highly present in the society. Making a positive change will most definitely not happen by turning against each other, my dear ladies. Instead of sticking a knife in another woman’s back, rather put energy into uniting and supporting each other. Or at least put energy into yourself, you own work. By no means I am trying to convince you to be friends with anyone, to be supportive to any woman out there. Please, just be nice. I get you cannot click with just anyone, I get that sometimes it is hard to see a woman succeed, when you are trying so hard to achieve the same yourself (and it doesn’t really go your way). The least you can do is to show some kindness and respect. Stop viewing other women as your enemies, because they are not.

This post is a tribute to all the women who stick together. It is dedicated especially to my blogger ladies Tesa (Magnifique), Vanesa (Takeoff with love), Nika (Beautyfull blog), Lea (Lepa Afna), Gabi (Parokeets blog), Eva (Nepopolna mama), Pia (Fash’n’fudge), who I am proud to call friends.

second-hand bookshop Ljubljana

I probably haven’t told you before, but I was a huge bookworm as a kid. I like to joke that reading Harry Potter in late night hours, of course secretly – underneath my blanket with a small flash-light and later a cell-phone, probably got me to -6.00 eyesight I have today. Joke aside, I still love books. Sadly today I rarely find time to read and to be completely honest, I miss it. I miss the moment when you open it and by the time you finish the first page you’re completely sunk in. Books offer you an escape from the world, they let you travel without moving your feet, can broaden your mind, are a rich source of information, make you more articulate and well-spoken. Today, when bookshops are displaced by the internet, I still believe in magic when reading something that’s a little battered round the edges, dusty and musty. Something you find in your grandma’s attic or at the second-hand bookshop. As in life, you can find true gems in places you couldn’t imagine.

I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a book. – J.K. Rowling

Maybelline autumn makeup look

Some may think today’s #ootd is more suitable for spring days, at least colourwise. I disagree! Adding a pop of vibrant colour to your look is a great idea if you want to stand out from the crowd. Street style in autumn is usually full of black, grey and burgundy, and this year is no different. I included the latter two in this look, combining them with a floral print blouse and a vibrant orange coat, to make it even more interesting and fun!
