Tracee Ellis Ross

I used to write beauty posts about women I like and the makeup they wore and I thought it would be cool to bring it back. I wrote about Emma Watson, Sarah Hyland, Emilia Clarke, Lily James, Kerry Washington, Sophie Turner

As I said back then, these are women I like, women I admire and women who wear fabulous makeup.

And the amazing person I want to talk about today is Tracee Ellis Ross.

She stars in ABC’s “Black-ish” and she is amazing. She is such a poweful, unapologetic and empowering woman and she is so fashionable!

I love her. She has confidence, a gorgeous smile and she’s not afraid to express her opinion.

Tracee has amazing lips and she often accentuates them with a bright lipstick. And she pulls it off like nobody else does.

Personally, I got inspired by her: eyebrown, a barely-there super soft shimmer eyeshadow on the lid, mascara and then a pop of colour on the lips.

It’s beautiful.

At times she also lines her eyes with a black eyeliner and it makes the whole look seem more time consuming and thought out.

I’ve noticed red is her preferred colour but she wore  beautiful neon pink on Stephen Colbert’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and I fell in love with it. I wore my own bright pink for three straight days.

She wears different shades of red like in this picture, but usually it’s always a bright classic red.

GORGEOUS.

I love it.

And of course I love her. She has such a fun and bubbly personality. I recommend checking out her interviews. She is adorable.

AND this year she made her directorial debut on Black-ish! She directed the first episode of the tetralogy at the end of season 4!

2-Year Anniversary!

It’s my 2-year anniversary here on WordPress!!!

Yaaay!!

I can’t believe it’s been 24 months since I started writing my blog. It still feels like yesterday I uploaded my first post!

I’ve had a tremendous time, connecting with amazing people and writing about the things I love.

Thank you to those who have read my rants, my reviews and my personal breakdowns. These two years have been challenging and this blog has helped me process my feelings and thoughts and it has helped me moving on.

Thank you for following my little blog.

I cannot tell you how much I appreciate it.

Here is to two more years!

February 2018 Beauty Haul! PUPA MILANO HAUL

So I went back to the shopping centre.

Donald Trump Alec Baldwin - Oops I did it again.gif

And for as little a 14€, I got 6 products!

Let’s start with eyeshadows!

Having oily eyelids, I need something that will stick to them and won’t budge. So I got these two Pupa Made To Last waterproof stick eyeshadows in the shades 014 and 015.

I haven’t played with them yet, but from the swatches in the store, they are gorgeous. And really water resistant.

I also got another eye product. another gel eyeshadow pen, similar to the one in my previous haul.

It’s the PUPA Made To Last eye pencil in 402.

It’s blue with glitter in it and I can’t wait to do a pink eyeshadow look and use this as eyeliner.

It’s going to be magnificent.

Last but not least, for just 1.45€, I got this great Pupa VAMP! Definition Liner in 002 and it’s this amazing bright almost-neon pink and I am in love with it. I wore it the other day above my black eyeliner and it was truly spectacular.



For the great price of 2€, I also got this bright pink matt PUPA nail polish in ……… . I tried it the other day but the weather hasn’t been that great and having such a summer-y colour on my nails didn’t really match the tone of the environment.

Yes, I factor in weather when I choose what nail polish to wear.

And finally, the lipstick!

How could I not get this matt liquid lipstick?! It’s the PUPA I’m Matt lip fluid in the shade 056. It’s a fantastic deep red.

The applicator isn’t that great. Or maybe I’m not used to it because the first time I tried it, it went on horrendously.

But it looks amazing and I can’t wait to wear it more often.

Winter Beauty Haul 2017/2018

I haven’t talked about beauty for a long time but I’ve had some time to spare and I wanted to share the products I have recently (and not so recently) bought.

Yes, I am months behind. I know. Who cares.

SEPHORA Lips Cream Stain in 17

I decided to treat myself with a Sephora lipsticks. I’ve wanted to get my hands on one of these for a long time and I went it and got it.

A dark red matte liquid lipstick. It’s exactly what I’d been looking for. It’s probably the favourite lipstick colour of my entire collection.

It’s truly beautiful, it lasts for a long time and it doesn’t smudge.

It retails at 10.90€ in Italy.

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in 110

Last year I bought this Maybelline foundation in the shade 115 and as my tan slowly disappeared, I got paler and paler. Soon, even n^ 115 was too dark and definitely too pink for me.

I think it’s incredibly difficult to find the perfect foundation for your skin and your undertone. Since I have quite a tight budget I can’t afford to splurge on a lot of brands and try them until I get the perfect one, even the drugstore ones.

I already have 5 bottles of foundations and it’s already too much. So many different shades! And most of them have been bought before I knew what I was doing with my makeup.

Anyway, even if n^110 is a bit ashy and it makes me look “ghost-like”, I love it. It has a light to medium coverage, it sets beautifully on the skin and it makes it look like actual skin and not some mask I’ve put on.

I’ve been mixing it with my Rimmel 24h foundation in 200 (one or two shades darker that the Maybelline one and still with a yellow undertone) and it gives me a better coverage, especially in those days when I want to look flawless. (don’t worry, I never do).

Price: 10.90€



IMG_8224KIKO Long-Lasting Wet & Dry Use Eyeshadow in 215

Kiko’s sales made me buy it! I went in just to browse and my mom was kind enough to get it for me.

It’s got so much glitter! I can’t wait to do a smokey eye and have sparkles all over my eyes!

And since I can use water with it, a couple of days ago I did a great glittery winged eyeliner look and I loved it!

It was on sale and I spent 5€, but the actual price might have been around 8 or 9 €, so a bit expensive for me.

 

 



IMG_8223Deborah Highlighter Face Powder Duo in 02 GOLD

I don’t know why I bought this product. It’s not too bad. It has two sides with a yellow-based highlighter and a pink one.

I haven’t tried other highlighters, to be fair. It seems like the italian makeup industry hasn’t figured out highlighters exist and people have been obsessed with them for ages!

This one is quite glittery and I’m not really sure I apply it in the right way. I’ve been using it non-stop for a month, trying to eventually figure out the correct method for putting in onto my face!

Price: 5.60€



IMG_8225ESSENCE The False Lashes Dramatic Volume Unlimited Mascara

The name is definitely a mouthful!

I saw the lovely Emily of BeautyWithEmilyFox on Youtube doing a video about her favourite Essence mascara and his was on her top 5 list. I have followed her recommendations and so far, I’ve loved every single product I purchased.

It’s a liduid-y formula and the bristles have a lot of product on but it’s volumizing, lenghtening and it lasts very well throughout the day.

One downside, it gets a bit clumpy and I can’t separate my lashes very well. I don’t mind it, I actually like it.

Price: 3.50€.



Let me know if you’ve tried any of these products and if you recommend anything cheap I should get my hands on!
