The book I would like to recommend is ‘Ugly Beauty’ written by a journalist – Ruth Brandon. You can see the review in here  and buy e-book in here.  It is a book about makeup, business, love and life.  This book is the answer: How to be succeed in a beauty industry? How L’oreal i Helena Rubinstein create the empire?

He invented a pan stick and was creator of a conception of tv make-up.

Helena Rubinstein was a Jewish girl from Poland. She opened her first cosmetics store in Australia and started to sell the luxury cram based on the oils. She invented a lipstick and her products were loved by women in all over the world.

Finally, the most contemporary, polish businessman from Przemyśl – Wojciech Inglot. He created an INGLOT. He invent the Freedom System. The system gives women the possibility of create their own color palette.

Eugene Schueller was a French pharmacist, who discover the first safe hair dye. He was a scientist but he didn’t like work at the university. He loves working on his own, even 18 hours a day.

The story of makeup shows, that only a hard work and a determination can gives you a success. Cosmetics are connected with economy, politics and industry. Through the second World War all companies were stopped but after the war women wanted to feel beautiful. Entrepreneurship and uncompromising attitude gives the success.

[Hot or Not] Love, Style, Life – Garance Dore

Where the make-up inspirations start? Lately I am reading a lot of books and trade magazines, not only watching the catwalk make-up. I decided to tell you about some of my recommendations and what is the best make-up inspiration for me. “Love, Style, Life” by Garance Dore is the book I loved.

What about the book?

The book has inspiring layout and is published with care and elegance. Inside there are not only the stylish illustrations but also a lot of practical information. You can see the “title inside” – everything is about fashion people, clothes, style, make-up… but there is also a lot of love and aiming the happiness.

Your style gives you power to communicate without words, so ask yourself – what do you know about you and your style? The same question goes with a make-up – if you know what you want to say, it is easier to fell self-confident. Inside the book you will find a lot of tips about the New York and Paris style.

Garance Dore is a very stylish woman, the beauty is relative so it is important who you are inside. Don’t judge book by its cover – okay, but if you are happy inside, you’ll be beautiful outside.

Sans elegance de coeur, il n’y a pas d’elegance – bez elegancji serca, elegancja nie istnieje.

Yves Saint Laurent

It is beautiful to be a woman, but you need to feel accomplish. Even the best make-up artist can’t hide your sadness or stress. Don’t try to be perfect, challenge yourself – try to accept your pros and coins. This practice makes you happy and naturally beautiful.

What about the make-up?

Eyebrows – well styled eyebrows could change the look of the face. Even the best make-up without eyebrows done well, is poor. Don’t forget about the brows!

Red lipstick – is your power. If you need to feel brave and full of energy – use a red lipstick. You can use it daily or only at weekends. Remember to choose the right shade! I was writing about it in here.

How to take a perfect photo – Everyone wants to look perfect when taking selfies, but sometimes you just don’t have “IT”. Garance gives you some simply tips: use natural light, make your skin look flawless and find your better profile!

Highly recommended!

I can recommend this book everyone, you need to finally find a time for yourself!

If not they could be expose for the bacteria. Remember they also  have the date of expiry! Cosmetics are used directly to your skin, which needs to have special conditions. Don’t use dirty, old or overdue product. Do the cosmetics overview and throw away all of the cosmetics which are not used (or open over 6-12 months) products. Especially do it with your mascara or face powder. Take notice on the expiry dates and remember – don’t buy what everyone buys, buy this what’s perfect just for you!

Sesja rodzinna

Kochani,

Dziś prezentuję Wam makijaże, które miałam przyjemność wykonać podczas sesji zdjęciowej dla genialnej rodzinki z Krakowa. Malowanie tak pełnych energii, uśmiechniętych i pozytywnych ludzi to czysta przyjemność! Spędziliśmy ze sobą oraz fotografem Łukaszem jedną z ostatnich słonecznych, letnich niedziel. Sesja odbyła się w scenerii domu i ogrodu, domownicy przygotowali różne stylizacje (w tym rokową, którą widzicie poniżej) i potrafili świetnie bawić się swoim wizerunkiem 🙂

Pomysł na sesję rodzinną to świetny pomysł na prezent, który będzie nie tylko pamiątką dla Was i Waszej rodziny, ale także zagwarantuje Wam świetną zabawę i dzień spędzony wspólnie w wesołej atmosferze.

Dla naszej rodzinki wszystkiego dobrego i jeszcze więcej takich słonecznych dni, a Was zapraszam do zapoznania sie z efektami makijażu!

Osoby z otoczenia Panny Młodej

Ślub to wyjątkowy czas nie tylko dla samych zainteresowanych, czyli Młodej Pary, ale także dla ich przyjaciół i bliskich. Rodzice, świadkowie, rodzina i przyjaciele zbierają się po to, aby wspierać Młodą Parę w tym szczególnym momencie życia oraz życzyć im wszelkiej pomyślności. Młoda Pani musi prezentować się wyjątkowo pięknie, ale trzeba pamiętać, że makijaż jest obowiązkowy także dla Pana Młodego oraz rodziców. Pan młody, aby uniknąć zdjęciowych foux pax zmuszony jest pokryć wszelkie niedoskonałości, zaczerwienienia oraz zmatowić skórę. Najlepiej, aby to samo zrobili ojcowie Młodej Pary. Nie tylko Panna Młoda ale także świadkowa, mama oraz teściowa powinny zadbać o swój wizerunek, aby nie wypaść blado na tle strojnych gości.

Krótki fotoreportaż autorstwa Pozytyw Studio z ślubnej zawieruchy znajdziecie poniżej, zwróćcie uwagę na makijaż mamy Panny Młodej oraz Panny Młodej – oba mojego autorstwa – zapraszam!
