Odyssey of beauty

Create your own casual gym shoes

Posted on 13 May 2014

 

A rainy day is the perfect time for making your own fashion items.

Two little princesses were inspired by a colorful sky with a silver touch.

An afternoon of fun and gym shoes were ready to wear by the time the sun came out!

 

We used:

 

– a pair of simple white gym shoes bought for only 6 EURO at the discount shop

– pink an blue textile paint

– a silver textile pen

– a sponge

– tape

 

What’s in a name: Beautydivined

Posted on 4 April 2014

Born on The Island and raised by a Bohemian mum, three older rebellious sisters and a father far from home, mainstream has never been in my name.

 

I grew up in an environment where the arts were a part of the daily life. Walls didn’t have to be repainted because every square centimeter was covered with a canvas.

 

In a surrounding where the arts are a second nature, I developed a sense of feeling for that what touches the soul.

 

With a passion for music from Stravinsky and Prokofiev to Bob Sinclair and Calvin Harris ,I adore dancing since I am a little girl. I dance through my life, on stage and off stage, guided by every form of beauty that crosses my path.

 

I still believe in fairy tales and I am a dreamer, so unfortunately for my hubby, I most likely will never become an adult.You are never too old to learn but I want to stay young forever. As I am coming from planet Venus, I am not complex or complicated at all, only just a little.

 

Making a choice is one of the hardest things for me to do.Therefore, if you ask me to make up my mind, I will ask you to have a little bit of it all. This phenomenon is reflected in my life. I challenge myself to do everything what I like, rather an impossible target but I’ll try.

 

When it comes to beauty in the broadest sense of meaning, I am not an exception, I like to be surrounded by it every single day. I am not a fashionista nor a cosmetic beauty freak. I leave that up to others. I am just me, myself and Beautydivined .

 

Although theoretically l live in the European Capital, my home is where I feel well and that can be anywhere. Traveling and wondering around is my second nature, so my luggage is always on standby.

 

A little cookie monster wakes me up almost every night, which makes me sometimes feel somewhere between a zombie and sleeping beauty during the day.

 

I enjoy a tea-time with the teddy bears and Goldilocks as much as a dinner with the prince on a black horse in a fancy restaurant.

Climbing Austrian mountains on high heels is for me as easy as walking with bare feet on the beach.

 

In my bedroom stands a table full with perfume bottles with the rightful excuse that a woman should have a fragrance for every mood ( and I have many). Fortunately for my daughter with the most beautiful hair, she has her share.

 

Somebody told me once that you should never buy shoes for your girlfriend because she will walk away from you. Therefore I give myself the respectful right to buy all the shoes I like and stuff only half a room with them.

 

My favorite drinks are bubbles in a graceful glass and a nice Aperol Spritz. Although nothing better then the personalized cocktails from Henry behind the Diamond Bar.

 

Art inspires and intrigues me endlessly. I would be in my natural habitat living in the Guggenheim museums, Picasso museums and last but not least at the Villa Borghese.

 

Based on all these characteristics and hopefully with inspirational discoveries and adventures still to come, I challenge you to read my blog and keep on visiting it. Looking forward hearing from you and as Marilyn Monroe said: “Keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”

Smokey eyes with a summer breeze

Posted on 3 April 2014

 

 Now that spring has arrived, we are all looking forward to nice long evenings outside. For an evening out, nothing looks more stunning than some beautiful smokey eyes.

The classical version of smokey eyes with black can be quite heavy. Especially in the summer it is nice to experiment with some lighter colors.

 This week I gave my smokey eyes a softer effect by using a palette of blue colors.

I used the following eye shadows:

  • oyster from Jane Irdale for under the eyebrows
  • onyx from MUD for the basis of the eyelid
  • smoked sapphire for the middle part of the eyelid
  • midnight comes on top of that
  • caribbean from Jane Irdale for the inner side of the eyes

It is very important to blend the eye shadows with an eye shader at the end. This makes sure that the colors mix gently and to avoid an artificial look.

To make sure the eye shadow powder doesn’t  fall under your eyes and ruins your make-up, my tip is to only applicate your foundation and highlighter under your eyes once you have finished your eye make-up and not before.

To have a more intense look you can add a black line on the water line of your eye and on the upper lash line.
