Buying things online

Hey guys! What's up? :)

As you may have noticed, today's post is about buying things online.

I'm not actually fan of buying things online, specially when it comes to clothes and cosmetics. I think that clothing is something that you can only say that looks good on you if you try it. And buying them online, of course, doesn't give you that opportunity.

It has already happened to me, I see something that I like so much in my hands but then when I try it, it doesn't look good on me. Also, what if I choose the wrong size and then it dosen't fit me? For sure, you have the option to send it back (or not). That's why buying things in the stores is so much easier.´

Recently I had this huge disappointment about online stores and real stores. I'm in love with berry colour so I was crazy for getting a berry lipstick. I went to a cosmetics online store and I saw this beeeaaautiful lisptick that was actually the colour I wanted. But wait, it gets better: THEY WE'RE ON SALE!

My best friend's mother was out for business and the city she went had the store where the lipstick was being sold, so she offered to buy it for me. I gave her the reference and when she came back and gave it to me, the lipstick was red!

I checked online if was the same that I wanted and it was! The colour was completely different... That's why I think it's so much better buying stuff in stores because you can see if that's what you're actually looking for.

The only thing that I don't mind buying online is phone cases because there are not a lot of things that can go wrong such as mistake the phone brand haha.

Eyeshadow matching eye colour?

Hey guys! What's up? :)

It's been a long time since I last posted, but school actually takes a lot of my time.

Today's post is going to be about make-up. Eye make up.

There are some colours that match better with your eye colour than others, so if you don't know which colours match better with you.

After doing some reserach, I noticied that most of the people agree with the theory that the complementary colours of your eyes are the ones that match the best.

To make it easier to understand, below is a colour wheel that is used to see which colours you should use.

But, to be honest, I don't think that following this "rule" is actually a good way to define your make up.

I'll give you my example; I'm green-eyed and I clearly don't see myself with pink or purple eyeshadow.

In my opinion, a gold soft colour fits every eye colour and it's actually a very pretty colour (specially in autumn and winter) that fits everyday, whether you dress casual or you're going to some event. 

So, to sum up my idea, I'm on the side that you should use whatever you feel comfortable in and don't take random things as this as the right option (of course always with limits).
