Hottest Hair & Makeup Trends for Spring

When it comes to Spring makeup trends, we usually think natural skin, peachy cheeks and coral lips, right? Well, not these season, when soft hues are replaced by fine lines, smoky shadows, flashes of color and vivid red lips. But pastel shades aren't completely excluded.. there's still a lot of baby blue color that comes in all forms of makeup - from eyeliner and eyeshadow to blue eyebrows (yes, colored eyebrows are a thing now) and baby blue negative space nails. Skin remains supernatural, but there's a return of red lips this season. You can choose from bright corals to vivid reds or go dark and sexy with statement flaming lips that we saw at D&G fashion show. Eyes are going crazy too! There's a lot of playing with different eyeliner colors, orange shadows and golden sparkles. And if you want to go over the top - draw some stars around your eyes to give your look that playful festive vibe.

And the hair? There's a big contrast in trends. On one hand is all about the undone and messy look and on the other hand there are sleek ponytails and braids with a twist. Oh yes, a lot is going on at the hair & makeup department this season so to not get lost in all these trends, take a look at these photos and decide which ones suit you the most.

How to Wear Denim on Denim

It's been 14 years since Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake appeared in their iconic denim outfits at the American Music Awards and since then we kept their looks in our minds as an example on how NOT to dress.. ever. But then the bloggers came and 'invented' street style, which means playing with different styles and pieces and so double denim trend was born (which makes a great example to never say never!). As you can see, fashion rules are meant to be broken and even though wearing denim on denim goes against everything we've been thought is correct about putting an outfit together, it has become a huge trend all the A-listers have already adopt.

Putting the denim look together can seem intimidating, but trust me, once you start experimenting with different pieces, you'll see that it can be very much exciting! Denim on denim looks offer infinite possibilities, since there aren't (almost) any rules to follow. The secret of creating a good denim on denim look is balance. You need to know what's flattering to your body and pay attention to proportions. The rest is just a game of mixing and matching.

Models Parade at Cannes amfAR Gala

Cannes festival is not only te most prominent film festival there can be, but it's also the most fashionable. Celebrities flaunt in the most gorgeous looks on the red carpet and I can never get tired of looking at all those breathtaking gowns. Fashion surpluses reach their highlight at the amfAR gala event, when the red carpet is overflown with the most gorgeous gowns I've ever seen.

This year a parade of models competed for the title of the best dressed and judging by the numerous articles and photos on the social media, first place definitely goes to Kendall Jenner, who flaunted in the amazing purple dress by Calvin Klein. Even though she is the most talked about, other models weren't lag behind. Chanel Iman stunned in statement plunging ballgown by Zuhair Murad and Joan Smalls wowed in long black Givenchy dress, sleek back hair and red lips. Of course we mustn't neglect their bonde model collegues. Karolina Kurkova took our breaths away in soft pink princess gown, while Anja Rubik went bold with royal blue luminescent dress. 

Unfortunatelly not all the models have a good taste in fashion. While Karlie Kloss (who usually chooses all the wrong outfits) surprised me with her sparkly silver Tom Ford dress, Bella Hadid and Adriana Lima totally dissapointed. Bella's dress reminds me of Robin Hood's shirt and Adriana's black cut-out dress looks very cheap on her. Oh and there's also Nina Agdal who apparently borrowed her dress from Borat. 

However most of the models really proved their exquisite taste in fashion and left notable mark at the amfAR gala event. Take a look at the outfits and choose your favourite!

A Full Guide to Online Shopping: Clothes

Since I get a lot of questions from my friends asking me for advice about online shopping, I decided to do a full blog post about it and give you all the information and advice that I have. It's not like I'm an online shopping queen, but I have quite a few experiences (good AND bad) that I've learned along the way. I still remember my first online purchase. I ordered two party dresses from Asos (that were luckily the perfect fit) and was so excited when they arrived. Unfortunatelly after a few purchases later I didn't have such luck and had to return many items that didn't fir or weren't quite the way I expected. These experiences tought me that even though online shopping seems like the easiest way to buy clothes (you just click and buy straight from your bed), it can be very tricky. You don't know the size measurments, you can't try the item on yourself, you can't touch and feel the fabric, etc.

Since ASOS is one of my favourite and the most popular destinations for online shopping, I'll be showing you my tips on their site with the example of this pretty pink quilted co-ord (that's on SALE btw!).

Omelettes and Star Wars at the MET Gala 2015

THE most extravagant fashion event of the year has happened again and I cannot stop admiring all the incredible dresses from the gala. Met Ball makes me sooo excited every year, since celebrities wear the most exquisite haute-couture gowns. This year creme de la creme of fashion, music and film industry gathered at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to toast the Costume Institute's latest ehibit, China: Through The Looking Glass. The evening was in the name of chinoserie and celebrities had to implement chinese artistic influences in their outfits. Some of them did a pretty good job and some of them totally failed..

There's always that one dress at the gala that attracts the most attention and is talked about years after the event. This time the honor definitely goes to Rihanna and her massive haute-couture dress (can we even call it a dress?), that took the designer Guo Pei two years to handmade it! Even though she couldn't walk in it without any help and despite many memes that highlighted its comparison to an omelette or pizza, the gown definitely shot the internet down and will for sure be remembered years ahead.
