Grand opening.

Toughts and dreams about National Library was around me all my life. And at last it's opened. It was yesterday and was so exciting, I feel like it's most important event in Riga for so many years. A librars is not simply a building, it's a symbol of human knowledge and dream that everyon in Latvia lived with about 25 years. For me it was something I dreamed about since I was born, maybe it's because my parens told me about it and it was dream of all my friends. No we didn't needed just a building, we needed the feelings, we needed to be proud that this huge project will be made. It's important that we have a place for "Dainu skapis" /Cabinet of Folksongs/

Building was designed by Latvian architect Gunnar Birkerts. Latvian literature and folklore speks of the "Castle of Light" as a metaphor for wisdom that has been lost, but will rise again from the depths of the Daugava river after the Latvian people have overcome the intellectual darknes of war, invasion and occupation. Birkerts has incorporated Latvian myths into the design of the National Library building. 
Yesterday I was there for a first time and was so excited, it's excellent building where every small detail has story, meaning...

Have a nice day, I hope all Your dreams will come true <3

Wednesday - Wineday

The world of wine can be a little overwhelming - with so many bottles brands and endless styles.
In general there are five categories or types of wine:
1. Red wine
made from blue or purple colored grapes and tend to carry considerable more tennin thanks to the way red wines are made with extended contact between the grape juice and grape skins.
2. White wine
Produced by the alcoholic fermentation of the non coloured pulp of grapes, always have a yellow/green transparent colour. The wide variety of white wines comes from the large number of varieties, methods of winemaking, and also the ratio of residual sugar.
3. Rose wine
Typically made from red wine grapes with just a short exposure of the grape skins to the pressed grape juice. Rose wines are made in wine regions all over the globe and offer a refreshing, well chilled alternative, especially in summer.
4. Sparkling wine and champagne
Are popular type of wine for their bubbly personalities :) Made from red or white wine grapes. The bubbles came from a second fermentation that captures the carbon dioxide undes sustained pressure.
4. Dessert wines
Made from red or white wine grapes and based on higher levels of residual shugar thanks to frozen grapes.

Which type of wine are Your favourite?
Thank You for stopping by <3

Me and my mascaras

I never had a fancy high end mascara, but You know what is the best of it? Never needed! Yes I know that You must to invest in beauty, but I better invest in moisturizer, cleanser, eye cream, hair mask, book, travelling, sweets... Don't think I need a pricy mascara!
Those four I use almoust everyday.
First one is Fennel Lenght Mascara - it's really cheap drugstore mascara, but it's my favourite.The formula is pretty dry and ads so much lenght to my lashes withouth clumping. I's just normal, simple everyday mascara, nothing special, but gives natural long lash effect. Lumene Natural Mascara gives a lot of volume, but not so much lengt, that's the reason why I like to use it with Fennel one. I apply one or two coats of Lumene and then one coat of Fennel and have my everyday dreamlashes :D
Avon Super Shock it very wet, very black, very shoch! It gives effective volume, lenght and curve, but I don't like the brush - it's too big and sometimes it's hard to apply to my inner corner lashes. But the Avon Mega effects ar has the most dissappointing tube ever - it's impossible to apply mascara with this "wand". But the most frustraiting is the fackt that formula is amazing!!! It applys so easly, it doesn't flake or smudge all day, and looks super glamurous.
I hope You all will find Your own perfect mascara!
Have a nice day and thank You for stopping by!

Wednesday - Wineday

Since an early age wine has been my passion. I grew up in Latvian - it's not a wine land, but dreamed of Loire Valley, surrounded by wineyards. I reded a lot about wine and it's history, gained knowledge about the magicians who know how to turn the grapes into the magical drink. For many years of my life I've worked as a waiter in order to be closer to the wine and didn't went past to any chanse to lern something more about it.

I'm no longer working as a waiter, but the wine is still my passion, so since today further on my blog each wednesday will be wineday :)

In my mind, wine can be compared to designers clothes, each of us has their own favorite designs. there are those who You keep wearing everyday, but there are also those You dream about. Valentino - stylish, noticable, elegant, but also wery expensive. H&M - easy to wear, beautiful, cheap. And no one of those two are right or wrong, it depends on your taste and budget.

Why to choose matt make up?

Why I usually choose matte make up?
First of all, because it's one of the best options when it comes to photograpy . If You are scared of how matte products, especially with bright shade, would look on You, here's some simple tricks I use.

Matte eyeshadow:

  • my biggest matte eyeshadow tip is to put on a color that is close to my skin tone all over the entire lid before begin to use any colors.It helps me with blending, because I notice that matt shades usually blends worst than shimmery. Don't know why :( Maybe it happens because the brush often holds the powder? I'm trying to slightly tap the brush aigainst the lid to press in the color.
  • When I am using matte eyeshadows I always using eyeshadow primer, it's must for me.

Matte lipstick:
  • It's important to prepeare your lips and make them smooth and soft. Exfoliating is great solution for me, because I have dry lips and matte lipstick isn't as forgiving as gloss, so every imperfection will show.
  • In order to keep matte lipstich fresh, I usually make sure to moisturize my lips before applying lipstick. Matte texture tends to dry out lips, creating cakked on effect.
  • Next i'm applying concealer all over my lips, to let the color pop.
  • Using lip liner helps to get clean and beautiful result. 
  • Applying matte shades I prefer to use lip brush, for me it's easyer to make sure to cover up every little corner.

Sun kissed face

Even if your cosmetic bag can afford only the basics, there must necessarily be a bronzer, it will highlight your features, makeyour skin look younger and healtier.

Find your shade. Natural tan effect for light skin eill give a bronzer in a pech ur light honey tone. For medium dark skin get more golden, rosy tones, but for dark skin perfect would be copper and terracota tones.
Never forget that the bronzer should be only one, but not more than two shades darker than your actual skin tone.

If You aren't professional use shimmer free bronzer. Easier and more for everyday would be matt bronzer. You don't have to worry about looking like circus artist with matt shades.
Luminous or shimmering particles containing powder must be used very lightly and carefully, it's more appropriate foe evening and performing. 

Do not try to save.Quality bronzer will not brake or disintegrate, it will not losing it qualities at least two or three years. It's worth to invest in this.

Buy a good brush. Almost as important as quality bronzer is the brush you use. To provide smooth, flawless covering, the brush will be the one who guarantee it. Brush is important also to apply bronzer , try to apply it light, with no pressure, gentle touches and remember - less is more.

Where to apply bronzer. First with bronzer highlight areas that are natural rounded up - from cheek bones move to temples, then lightly touch chin and nose.If you are going for more pronounced sunburn effect lightly tint a jaw line toward to ears, touck your collar bones and sholders and now you are done.

I am using now:
The body shop Honey BronzeHas a matt texture and moisturizing effect. It contains honey and beeswax, available in three shades. Approximately 15 Euro.
High end:
Jane Iredale My Steppes - Mineral make up kit - matte bronzer, blush and two shades lip gloss. Perfect for summer parties and trips. available in two variations - warm or cold tones. Approximately 60 Euro.
