I am Olivia, Just a Blogger - The 2015 Outlook & A Blog Award


Special thanks to Aldona from Working Beauty for the illustration.

Funny how things happen, I was going to write a semi About Me post combined with what-to-look-for-in-2015 post.  Then, I get a blog award via the lovely Cailin from SassyDove.  Why not combine everything into one post?

AW15 Hainsworth Collection by Jenny Schwarz Menswear - The History and The Impact


A Tom Mison look-alike!
Not many fashion brands have captured my attention as much as Jenny Schwarz Menswear.  I first featured the line here.  What I like about the line is the classic look with the modern twist in detail.  I also admire the classical background on the quality of the fabrics.  This is especially well defined in the AW15 Jenny Schwarz Hainsworth collection.

Gentle Cleansing with Le Mieux Phyto-Marine Cleansing Lotion

*PR sample*

le-meiux-facial-cleanser

Out of all facial cleansers, I prefer a cream cleanser or cold cream cleanser.  I also double cleanse, meaning I will use a non-soap cleanser to remove the cream cleanser.  This is basically my habit.  However, I do prefer a water soluble cream cleanser and I loved a certain brand but it got pretty pricey with their muslin cloth.  So, when I was able to test Le Mieux Phyto-Marine Cleansing Lotion, let's say I wasn't sure if it would live up to my pricey legend.

Creating Pixelated Colors of Powder

*I bought the pigments and made the colors.*

multi-dimensional-highlight-nude-face-powder

I am always looking for the ultimate flesh tone or nude colors.  You could say I am looking for the Fab Four Eyeshadows with added dimension.  I created two of the four.  Not a bad result since they offer that multidimensional finish.  You know, when the light hits the color, it should look like your skin without looking flat.  It creates depth and highlights via its pigments.
