The fact that Holyday season is right around the corner again feels just insane! If you’re on a budget (I mean, aren’t we all?) and have a lot of gifts to give, say, to your co-workers, cousins, etc…I don’t see any problem with giving smaller gifts. After all, it’s not about how much money you spend on the gift, but how much thought you put into it, so make it cute and significative!  (more…)

#MOTD Recap

In these series I’ll talk about my makeup likes/dislikes, faves and tips through my #MOTD posts on instagram and the products I use on an everyday bases. Let’s get started!          

I had a party that day, but I like to keep it simply with my makeup no matter the ocasion. This time I went for a mix of Nude Dude’s Faithful and Fit on the lid (Check them out here). I applied the blush from the Autobalm California Face Palette which I’ve been using way more than I expected (review here) and Luminoso on top. For my lips I sticked to my signature berry shade and lightened it with pink. (more…)

Everyday waves with Irresistible Me

When it comes to hairstyling I’m probably the less skilled beauty blogger out there. I love intricate braids and hairstyles as much as the next beauty tutorial addict, but truth be told, I have no patience to actually try them. Plus: my natural crazy textured hair has a mind on its own, so whenever I’m feeling creative it refuses to cooperate.

 

Irresistible-Me-Curling-Wand

Curling it’s just the easiest route for me, and soft waves are my go-to, they work for every possibly situation and look great on everyone.

Nude ‘Tude and Nude Dude: Reviews and Comparision

Nude'tude-Nude-Dude-Comparision

Some of you will hate me for what I’m about to say, but here it goes: the Naked palettes really never caught my attention! Don’t get me wrong, for all the hype that’s around them, I’m sure they’re some of the best eyeshadows palettes out there, but the color range within one same palette seems very similar to me, there are only a few mattes and some of the shades are repeats from one palette to another. Because of that —and the fact that they’re crazy expensive here in Brazil— I decided to go with something more versatile.
