FOTD: Red lips speaking straight from the shoulder

Today I'd like to share my simple and most favourite makeup look.

But.. Huh? Sal? Is that you? Or am I stranded on a different blog?
No, no, it is me. Just changed my hairdo! 

Bye bye, playful curls. Hellooooo, glamorous hairdo!


If you've been following my blog for a while, you know I love my curls. I love them so much, I try to encourage other girls to stop damaging their hair with flat irons, so they can feel the same love for their hair as I do. As much as I love my curls, I love to change it every once in a while. I don't straighten my hair often; once every few months or for an occasion. 

Everytime I've done my hair, I get the same question. So I think most of you are wondering the same. YES, it took me a while to straighten it. It took me about 2,5 hours to straighten it perfectly and another hour or 1,5 hours to curl it. Oh and an hour or so to let the curl set. So I was busy for about 5 hours to get my hair like this. Yay for curls?

But hey, you don't wake up glamorously, do you? If you do, please contact me, so I can steal your DNA. Okay, thanks. 


Besides sharing my glamorous hairdo, I thought I'd share my Face Of The Day. This is my favourite FOTD; classy, simple and feminine! 
With a red lippy, bien sûr. 

On the eyes
Sephora long lasting eyeliner - Matt Black
MaxFactor Masterpiece mascara - Black (waterproof)
Gosh Kohl Eyeliner - White
Catrice Kohl Kajal - 030 Brown

On the face
MaxFactor Mastertouch concealer - 303 Ivory
Rimmel Natural Bronzer - 022 Sun Bronze
Sleek Blush - Rose Gold 926 (review coming soon!)

On the lip
Shiseido Perfect Rouge - RD 415

Here's a picture of me with curls from my OOTD post, for the readers who haven't seen me with my natural hair. Different huh?

My hair does look a little messy here, but it's straightened with a slight curl towards the ends. I have to say that as soon as I don't have my curls, I just don't know how to handle my hair. I'm so used to my curls and taking care of them, that I don't know how to handle straight and "easy" hair haha!

Usually I don't like to share so many pictures of my face in a post, because it looks like I'm vain or oh so in love with my own face. But I had to share this with you guys, you have to understand! It took me FIVE hours!!


Sooooooo.. What do you guys think of my FOTD? 
And of course what do you think of my hair?

    1. Normally I can't either; that's why I only do it once every few months! It stays for days, though. Thank you!! X

    Really like how you have done your FOTD but as a hairdresser I'm in LOVE with your natural curls. Not enough people wear their hair 'au-natural' its truly beautiful :)

  4. Curls or not, you look gorgeous! I was wondering what foundation do you use because your skin looks flawless, but it's not written, or is that your natural skin? If so, skin-care routine please! :D

    1. Thank you, Arwa!! I didn't use any foundation on these pictures, I just had a good-skin-day for once haha! Now that you mention it, my skin is really flawless, you can't even see my freckles!! I really think it has to do with my camera and/or lightning, because usually my freckles are pretty obvious. Sorry that I can't help you with that :( But I can post a skin care routine if you want to! :)

  7. You're so darn pretty Sal. Your eyes look amazing.
    I've given up on FOTDs myself at the mo as my recently acquired dark circles make nice photos impossible. So annoying, wish they'd go away!
    That's alovely shade of lipstick, it really compliments your hair colour and skin tone :)

    1. Thank you so much for all your sweet words, Melanie!!! Ahh you got me blushing over here haha :)
      Don't give up on FOTD's! Try using a good concealer, a pink one! If a good concealer still doesn't help, you can always try to photoshop them away. Not a big fan of photoshop, but desperate times calls for desperate measures :)
