PUMA x MAC ONE Crème De Nude / Muted Clay Women’s Suede

In one of my previous posts, I’ve shared a new exciting collaboration between MAC Cosmetics and Puma in celebration of Puma Suede shoes turning 50!

The recently launched collection features three Puma classic suedes in the iconic shades of MAC Cosmetics lipsticks. Moreover, now it’s finally the time when you can match your lipstick to your shoes!

Muted Clay shade matches the sheer lipstick in Creme D’Nude, Fiery Red represents iconic matte Lady Danger and the Port Royal is the burgundy shade that serves as a pairing for the matte lipstick in Sin.

For me, it was so hard to decide on the color for shoes because all of these three shades are so beautiful and trending! Since I can’t have all three ( which I would probably end up doing if I had more cash and a bigger closet),  I picked the pair in Muted Clay.

Unfortunately, the matching lipstick (Creme D’ Nude), is not my shade – personally, I don’t like pale lipsticks, so I’m skipping on the matching pictures here. However, the color of these shoes is so flattering, that this is exactly what has been missing from my wardrobe.

First of all, I need to mention that the sneakers are comfortable and true to size! I’m wearing exactly my 7.5.

The upper part of the shoes is leather (suede) with textile lining and rubber sole. You can find Puma and MAC Cosmetics logos on the shoe tong and all over the insole.

The sneakers also feature Puma’s trademark  – lateral formstrip and laces in the same perfectly matching shade. The last makes the shoes look pretty solid so that you’re not restricted in adding other colors to your look.

My favorite element in these shoes is the tonal glossy makeup smear marking on the heel – it adds a very stylish touch to them.

This beautiful peachy beige shade will go perfectly together with white, cream, light blue, rose gold, sand and many more! It’s the lightest and most muted shade in the collection and is perfect for summer. I like this shade for its versatility that you get for matching with other colors and textures.

Since it’s already a hurricane season, I’d need to add protection to my suedes so that no rain can cause problems whenever I decide to wear them.

These shoes are already sold out at puma.com, but you still can find them at Nordstrom. The retail price is $85.

Pantone Color of the Year 2018 Inspired Make Up For Everyday Look

Hello, my beauties!

Since Pantone, the Global Color Authority, announced Ultra Violet as a Color of 2018, this color is gaining more popularity in fashion and beauty.

pantone.com

Violet is one of my favorite colors and I’m really excited that this is the color of 2018!

If you go through pretty much every beauty brand today, you can find lipsticks, nail polishes, eye shadows and etc all in this shade. However, you may feel uncomfortable wearing such a bold experimental color to work or to school, but still want to catch up to the trend. If so, then this post is definitely for you.

Here are some tips of how to add twists of violet to you everyday look, and yet, keep up with your personal style.

Although there might be a little deviation from exact Ulta Violet color, all shades of purple and violet are still considered trending.

P.S. You can scroll down to the video where I do my makeup and then get back to the text to  read all the steps in details!

Eyes

For me, eyes are the most comfortable area to experiment with color. Violet is a shade that goes well together with all eye colors.

If you don’t feel comfortable covering your full eyelid with this bold color, consider pairing it with the trending mauve shades. Create a transition of shades from a light mauve color adding a tiny amount of violet to the edges and to your crease.

I like violet shades from Too Faced Chocolates and Peaches pallets, they blend in very naturally to the skin. I use Livin Lavish shade from Gold Chocolate pallet.

Add violet color to your lower lash line. My favorite shade for this is Osiris from Prism Pallet  by Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Here are single eyeshadows for more matching color:

As an option,  you can also apply an eye pencil to the lower lash line and blend it.

My top favorite is from Sephora in shade 32 Tango Night.

If you are a big fan of cat eyes and can’t live without lined eyes, consider using violet liner instead of black.

Interesting fact: Butter London has partnered with Pantone this year and released a collection in Ultra Violet once the color has been announced.

Today, the only place where you can find the complete collection is only butterlondon.com. Interestingly, Ulta.com also has their products displayed on their website, but almost all of them remain “sold out”. But don’t despare: Ulta as well as Nordstrom has same shades of same product in stock. They just don’t have a Pantone sticker on the packaging.

Butter London features the Glazen Lustrous eyeliner in Ultra Violet.

If this color is too bright for you, consider its sister Magnetic. It’s a deeper shade and still looks more violet than blue on the skin.

To complete your eye makeup and open up the look, add Gumdrop from Anastasia Sugar Glow kit to outer corners of your eyes. It’s a dual chrome pink/lilac shade. For a bolder look, you can use Spectra Shade from Anastasia Aurora Glow Kit.

I suggest to finish with black mascara to keep the look more wearable for everyday.

Nails

Nails are another place where you can safely use violet color to be in trend.

Here are the nail polish shades from Pantone 2018 Color of the Year Collection by Butter London.

Misty Lilac  – Purple Rain – Marvelous – Ice Lavander – Hydrangea – Ultaviolet

You can keep it simple and substitute your signature nude/white color with Hydrangea.

As you can see, mauve shades also count.
