Chanel says: Intense pink, the universal shade of happiness..!!

I wrote about Chanel Spring 2012 nail polishes before. Chanel named their 2012 nail polishes after the months of spring. April, May and June…!! Here is my previous post about these dream shades==> Click..!! Click..!!

I already fell in love with June. June, which is a lovely creamy pastel apricot color was my favorite. But after trying May on, I totally changed my mind. I bought May, which is a soft, sweet baby pink.

According to Chanel, May is an “intense pink, the universal shade of happiness.” It is not an intense pink but I totally agree about this being a happy color. May is so girly and innocent. Try it yourself..!! :)

Chanel S/S 2012 nail polishes

It is amazingly sunny for an October month here in Copenhagen. It is not warm, but sunny. Those who live in Scandinavia know what I am talking about. :) Because of the shining sun we still want warm and glowing colors.

It would have been nice, if I could have used one of the new Chanel S/S 2012 nail polishes right now. I loved them..!! Chanel named their 2012 nail polishes after the months of spring. April, May and June. I already fell in love with june. June is a lovely creamy pastel apricol color. I can not wait for spring. Which is your favorite?

 

Orange lips..!!

Orange is the must have color for lips this summer..!! The Spring/Summer 2011 runway, fashion magazines, catalogs and ads are full of models with orange lips. What about you?? Have you tried this fun color?

We have to admit that orange is definitely an intimidating color for many but it is surprisingly wearable. You just have to give it a chance. :)

How to pull of orange lips perfectly..!!

I have some great tips on how to make this exciting color work for you. Here are they;

  • Keep it clean ..!!

Your lips have to be the focus point of your look.  It is not a good idea to use bold colors for the rest of your face. Make it simple. It is so easy to look overdone and cheap. Just a little champagne eyeshadow, thick layer of mascara and some bronzer on your cheeks. You will be rocking with orange lips..

  • Start with a Lip Gloss

An orangey lip gloss is a good start for those who are less brave to try an orange lipstick. It is less vibrant and very suitable for a day make up. Last but not least it looks amazing with summer tan..!!

  • Consider your skintone

Fair Skintones: If you have a fair skintone, go for a lipgloss. Peach tones and light oranges make wonders on pale complexions.

Medium Skintones: If you have a medium skintone, you can pull off everything..!! A bold vibrant orange lipstick or a sheer lipgloss.. Find something that you feel yourself comfortable.

Dark Skintones: If you have a dark skintone, you will look wonderfull with warmer shades of orange. You can also be bold and pull of a very vibrant orange lipstick.

  • What about coral??

Coral is technically orange.. ;) It is just less intimidating. It works for everyone..!!

For Luminous and Glowing Skin


Tanned, luminous and glowing skin is a dream for lots of women including me. Tanned part is now easier with upcoming summer time. But what about the luminous and glowing part?

After 10 days of  sun bathing and swimming, I was back from a wonderful vacation. And it was time to find an extra moisturizing skin care product for my dehydrated dry skin. After some research I decided to try out a “Shimmer Oil” exactly like the one Beyonce is using on this picture. Shimmer oils help to nourish and protect the skin, thanks to an exclusive mixture of fine oils and Vitamin E.  And thanks to its small golden particles, your skin glitters and reveals its beauty whenever you move.

Here is the list of the best “Shimmer Oil” products in the market;


Omorovicza Gold Shimmer Oil

Apricot kernel oil, carrot oil, rice germ oil, E-vitamin, gold particles and its patented mineral formula for former skin; just luxury.

NUXE Multi Usage Dry Oil- Golden Shimmer

Dry oil with a unique superactivated formula combining plant oils and Vitamin E to nourish, repair and soften face, body and hair.

NARS Body Glow

A unique blend of Monoï de Tahiti oil combined with a rich chocolate shimmer for glowing, healthy and naturally fragrant skin.
One of the most popular shimmer oil in the market. The ultimate multi-purpose beauty oil soothes and moisturizes the skin with an addition of rich chocolate shimmer for a natural glow. The lightweight, sheer oil is absorbed immediately on the skin.

BODY SHOP Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil <== Sebla’s favorite..!!

Very similar to NARS Body Glow. This lightweight body oil with honey gives skin an even honey-bronzed look with a hint of shimmer. Tan-enhancing shimmer and glow is so good on taned skins. Easy to apply with a non-greasy finish. And most importantly affordable price..!!

My choice is Body Shop “Honey Bronze Shimmer”.  I have been getting a lot of compliments because of my glowing skin nowadays.

Remember that luminous skin is always ‘in’. Having a luminous and glowing skin has often been referenced as a sign of health and fertility.  Don’t you think it is therefore so attractive? :)
