CELEBRITY STYLE: KYLIE JENNER


If I only lived in a country where the temperature is always above at least 20 degrees I would definitely dress up like Kylie Jenner. I would just (not literally) steal her wardrobe. I've been obsessed with her style for so long now (I've even started watching "Keeping Up With The Kardashians"). I absolutely love the way she styles her outfits. I especially love her casual style. She makes ordinary clothes look amazing. She just puts on jeans shorts and a crop top and looks like a million dollars. My favourite casual outfit of her is the right one in the first set of pictures. These watermelon shorts are a must have for me this summer. Her more formal style or a "red carpet" style is also stunning. She really likes wearing minimalistic plain clothes and combining formal clothes and accessories with casual ones. My favourite formal outfit of her is the one where she's wearing a black maxi skirt and a white crop top. It is a perfect combination of styles!


Other than her fashion style I also adore her make-up. I think I've watched almost every Kylie Jenner make-up tutorial on YouTube and spent many (probably too many) hours trying to recreate it. I just never can recreate that perfect winged eyeliner she has. With a red or pink lipstick she adds, everything about her make up is amazing!

JUST A FEW OF MY MARCH FAVOURITES


I've decided not to make a full March Favourites post this month as I've done "What's in my March make-up bag" and it essentially included the products I've been using and loving for the whole month. But when the month came to an end I just felt a little bit weird without letting you all know what I loved the most in March. So here's a little post about the three things I couldn't live without for the past 30 days.

Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm: I've been wearing this lip balm almost all the time in March! Not entirely because of it's healing features but just because I liked the small amount of colour it left on my lips. And it's so super easy to use without any mirror. If you want to read my full opinion about Baby Lips you can do it by clicking here.

theBalm Frat Boy blush: I know I've been already raving about it too many times but as it was my "monthly treat" I had to include it in my March favourties. I've been using this blush every single day since the day I got it. It really is amazing! It's very pigmented, easy to apply and looks just amazing on the skin! If you haven't tried it yet, you better do it as soon as possible!

Sleek i-Divine "Garden Of Eden" eyeshadow palette: As I am an owner of hazel/green eyes, I was entirely sure I was going to buy this palette the day I saw it for the first time. Now I can finally say that I do believe in love at the first sight! I've been using this palette to create the green or purple smoky eyes very often in the past month. Words can not describe how much I'm in love with this palette! Me and Garden Of Eden are a perfect match for each other.

LAZY DAY MAKE-UP ESSENTIALS


I'm pretty sure every single one of you has a lazy make-up day every now and then. I know it's nothing to be proud of but I generally am a lazy person so I probably have those days a little bit more often. I'm not one of these people who won't leave the apartment without a full make-up on but I definitely do feel better when I put at least something on. 

On my lazy make-up days I always put some concealer on, under my eyes and on blemishes. For that I'm currently using the Seventeen phwoarr Paint heavy duty concealer. Unless the condition of my skin is very bad, then I'm going for the foundation. This probably is no surprise for you as I've been raving about this foundation many many times but for that I use the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation.Optionally, I also like using the bronzer to give my face a little bit of shape and colour. My favourite right now is the Bourjois Bronzing Powder. For me, blush is always a must have! But on my lazy day I like using the Topshop cream blush as it's much easier to apply. My favourite shade is definitely Flush! Another lazy make-up day must have is a mascara! If I had to choose only one beauty product to use for the rest of my life, it would be mascara. I can't imagine any make-up without mascara. For my lazy make-up I like using the Astor Big & Beautiful Boom! Curved mascara. It's very easy to apply and gives a lot of volume! The last thing I have to do while putting a lazy make-up are brows! I feel like the face always looks better with the brows done. Currently I'm using the Maybelline Master Shape Brow Pencil in Dark Brown. It's not the best brow pencil I have ever used and I will definitely not repurchase it but it's good for lazy day make-up as it has a great spoolie brush which is great for shaping the brows and helps get rid of the product excess when I go a little too hard with the pencil.

POSSESSION OBSESSION: SPORTSWEAR

As the spring has finally arrived and is staying, at least I hope so (we actually had snow in April last year) there's no excuse for me not to workout. It's time to start exercising and eating well to get that bikini body before summer kicks in. My favourite activity is definitely running. Even though I moan before every single jog I still love it, especially the feeling after I come back, take a shower and just sit. The worst part when it comes to jogging is...starting, getting out of the house. And as I have been a lazy bum lately, I only went running... once. This has to change and in order to make that change I need new workout clothes. Here are some that I like:


My favourite is definitely the "Let's #Twerk It Out" t-shirt. I'm pretty sure I'd be the most stylish runner in my local park wearing these clothes, don't you think? Which of these pieces do you like the most?

TUMBLR INSPIRATIONS: HOME

photo credits: x x x x 
For now I live in a rented flat with my sister and two other friends while going back to my hometown, where my parents live, for the weekends. But there have been some conversations about buying a new flat for me and my sister recently. This will definitely not happen this year but it made me start thinking about what I would like this new place to look like. And what's better for searching for inspirations than Tumblr? Nothing, I know. 

I really want the apartment to be white and spacious, with big windows, necessarily. Wooden floors are also a must have for me. Tumblr made me realise I need a big desk for my workplace so I could a) be more organised and b) store my make up more easily because who knows how big my collection will be in a year. Another thing I need is big white bookcase. I'm already collecting books so I have "something" to place in that enormous bookcase. The last thing that MUST be in my future home is a SMEG refrigerator. Mint or pink, I don't care but it has to find its place in my kitchen one day.

MY THOUGHTS ON: MAYBELLINE BABY LIPS LIP BALM | REVIEW


Yes, I have finally surrendered and bought the Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm. I've heard many different opinions about this product. Some of them were very good and some of them were well... worse. But I decided to give it a go anyway. As I am a sucker for pretty and pink things I obviously went for the Pink Punch one. 

My first impression was: this is different. I have been using only Nivea lip balms for most of my life so when I tried Baby Lips for the first time it obviously felt a little bit different. Nivea lip balms are more creamy and heavy. They also feel more moisturising on the lips. Baby Lips feels more like a sheer lipstick, not a moisturising lip balm. I have to admit that as for the lip balm the colour pay off is quite good (you can see the swatch in the picture below). I was actually quite surprised with this as I didn't expect any colour at all. Unfortunately the colour is not very long lasting. Another thing is that I wouldn't say it moisturises my lips for 8 hours, that is quite an overstatement. 

All in all, I have to say that Maybelline Baby Lips is a good product but it is a little bit overrated. Beside the adorable packaging it's just a regular lip balm. I definitely am happy that I've tried the famous Baby Lips lip balm and I will still be using it along with my forever favourite Nivea lip balms.

WHAT'S IN MY MARCH MAKE UP BAG: ALL TIME FAVOURITES, NEWBIES AND REDISCOVERIES


This month, for the first time in the short history of Brighton Dream, I decided to make a "What's In My Make Up Bag" post. There are some all time favourites included in this post as well as newbies and rediscoveries. Let's start with my favourites. My make up bag always (I mean ALWAYS) includes the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation. I use it all year long, even in winter even though it's supposed to be a summer foundation. That's how much I love it. Other all time favourites are a Rimmel Stay Matte powder, Bourjois Bronzing Powder and Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss lipstick.

As for the newbies, I've been really loving the new Max Factor Excess Volume Extreme Impact mascara. I've written a review about it here. Another new thing that's found its place in my March make up bag is of course theBalm Frat Boy blush, my "monthly treat".  

As for the rediscoveries, there are two. The first one is my once favourite but forgotten GOSH eyeliner. I am not sure whether it's still available because I bought it more than a year ago I think. And it still works! A miracle, I know. The second rediscovery and the last item that has been in my make-up bag for the whole month is a NYC Metro Quartet Eye Shadow in Union Square. I also don't think it's still available. I've bought this little palette last year, used it couple of times and forgotten about it. And now, just when I've learned how to do the "crease thing" it's perfect. I'm using the darkest shade for the crease and the lightest one all over the lid. Then I just add a little eyeliner and I'm good to go. That's the make up I've been rocking almost everyday since the beginning of March.
