Back to blogging with a different view on everything 2013 :)

Hiya !!! Wow its been a LONG -ASS time since I have been on here! I've actually got some followers to! Thank youuuuuu !! 
I think what I will do is re-introduce myself and my reason for Mediterranean Glam Blog, I was a different person when I started this blog to who I am today and my view on everything glamorous and beautiful has definitely been  altered - for the better I hope :)
So here I am, Nikki. To say an obsession with makeup and beauty products would be pretty on point. Over the years I noticed that youtube, beauty mags, etc don't really adhere to our (mediterranean/ethnic girl) needs like they do with fair/darker skin tones - WE ARE IN ZEEE MIDDLE!! What about us? So I always wanted to give out information, and helpful tips for the girls that I can relate to after years of trial/erroring products, and applications. 
No we are not pink toned, no we are not NC25, but I feel when you go to some counters they quickly look at our dark features and be all "oh definetly NC45" or "yes you would look great with pale lavender blush" you know what I mean yeah? 
I'm not saying that us Mediterranean Glamours should just stick to whats COMFORTABLE - no way that's boring as fckkk, be creative muck around with colours and find what suits your complexion. 
I feel like highlighting & contouring are our best friends - we definitely can get away with even the most precise / full face contours everyday then maybe a fairer woman that's for sure!
I spent a long time observing how Mediterranean women get dolled up when I lived in Cyprus - they got it down pat man!! Never a fail.  

So thats my intro - I hope you enjoy my rambles :)

Current Skincare Routine -Winter

Hey Boos!
Weather is changing & so is my skincare! Even though I am definetly oily/combination type, my dryer areas of my face are drying out even more than usual, which I am noticing through my makeup. Even though I have had some crappy break outs here and there, I think I have minimised it by following this routine. OBVIOUSLY this wont work for everyone!! But it works for me. And I am enjoying the products I have been using. Let me know if you would like any reviews on these products. :) Sme photos at the end.

  1. CLEANSER - I Cleanse twice with APIVITA Cleansing Gel for Oily/Combination. This takes away these grease and grime day & night I LOVE the fresh feeling after. Can't explain my love for this brand!!
  2. SCRUB - I try & do this every day atleast once. I'm still looking for my HG scrub, At the moment liking DR LEWINS Facial Polishing Gel.
  3. TONER - YOU MUST TONE!!!!!!!! I think I have panic attacks when I start to end a bottle of toner. You need to restore the PH balance. I really think using toner has helped blemishes! They say if you have oily skin to stay clear of Alcohol based toners/products, even though it will feel amazing at first, you will later produce DOUBLE the normal oil amount & thats nasty. Im using CLEAN & CLEAR Oil-free toner, smells so nice!
  4. MOISTERISER- It has taken me so long to find a moisteriser than doesn't make me feel greasy! Finally I have found NEUTROGENA moisteriser for Combination skin. 
  5. EYE CREAM - Liking LACURA Age Vitale Eye cream.
  6. ACNE CREAM - CLEARASIL Rapid Action Spot Treatment! Good stuff.
  7. FACIAL MIST- AVENE thermal Spring water, I'm loving facial sprays. This was on sale so I thought I'd try it out. I prefer EVIAN's version though.

Crimped Hair

I decided to Crimp my hair randomly as I haven't used my Crimper in SO LONG!! I also crimped my mums too :P she has Blonde hair so you can see the crimped design better ofcourse. I will try & get a pic of hers if she lets me :).
Crimping your hair makes it feel & look so thick and lovely, and because I straightened my hair before I crimped it my hair looks Pin straight but with volume! I will definetly be doing this more often!!
** I used a CUTEX Crimping Iron** I teamed this hairstyle with a soft smokey arabic double edged eye and pale pink lips.
Products Used:- 

  • Sportsgirl "Time To Shine" Bronze Pallete
  • Sportsgirl "Beauty Queen" Creme Lipstick
  • Maybelline "Eye studio" Gel liner in "Blackest Black"

LAST 2 PICS-MINI PLATE: feels like a soft straight afro :P
