I just love doing workshops and teaching ladies how to apply makeup, so my beauty make-up workshop for International Women's Club Zagreb was no exception. Workshop was held at hotel Esplanade.

We got talking about the daily makeup and skincare routine with the help of my favorite brands -Dermalogica cosmetics and Jane Iredale mineral make-up.
I just love that simple bronze look that gives us some kind of special freshness and effect of sunlit face, but sometimes I want to do minimal contour to the face in order to have more definition. This is a super simple trick to make the best of both worlds – bronzy contour that we shall call London chic.
I have been working with world known Dermalogica and their Dermacare centers for several years now, and my reasoning is quite simple. They have excellent products, without harmful ingredients, and they can very accurately predict future trends in skin care due to their excellent research center. Let me introduce you to Dermalogica Face Mapping® technique of analyzing and mapping the face that gives you more information about the condition of the skin. Using this technique, you will get to know your skin, create beauty routine that perfectly suits her and find a way how to maintain it long-term.

It seems like blush is marginalized, timid little creature living in the shadows of lipstick and eyeshadow. We are so afraid of naturally rosy cheeks, that we almost left the millennial tradition of using a blusher. The roots of interest in pretty and rosy complexion stretch far into the past, and the story itself is fascinating, but sometimes imbued with fanaticism.
Some things are classics for a reason - they never go out of style, they suit many and there are many ways to play with them. Like the little black dress, red lipstick never goes out of style. I think every woman should own at least one red lipstick and occasionally use it to demonstrate her power and self-confidence. You can bring your red lipstick to a new level of power this season.
