Did you remember the time when there only was one shade for colored skins. Now we can find the perfect foundation almost everywhere. Yes, I said almost everywhere! A few years ago I was in Slovenia for holidays and a bad thing happened! I forgot my foundation! It was a disaster to find a new foundation for my skin color. Especially in a small town in the east of Europe. Why? The reason is simple  many beauty stores like for example drugstore depends on the ethnic composition of the population, it easier to sell their product this way. That’s why you will find more choices in larger cities than in a small town, where the population has no colored skin. Now there are specialized makeup brands for colored skin. So if you find one of them, you will find everything you need for your skin color.

This is probably the easiest hairstyle you can do. I wanted to do an easy hairstyle to save time in the morning because I’m most of the time in  the rush. But also to be comfortable all day. The ponytail is perfect for it. Of course there are different styles. And I love the low messy ponytail.

 

How to create this look

1. Start by using a little bit of L’oreal oil on your hair, especially if you have dry hair.

2. Take small sections of your and curl them from inside to create a voluminous look.

3. Comb your hair with your fingers for a natural look.

4. Finish by applying your L’oreal oil to bring shine and hydrated my hair.

I found my inspiration from my garden for this beauty creation.

I added a touch of sobriety by using MAC Hang-up one of my favorites lipstick
