Luxuria on Mykonos

 

Mykonos is an island on Greece that in the spring, winter and autumn months turns into this beautiful haven. I have always been an island girl and I still believe deep down that I belong on one. This is one of my favorite places ever. We visited in the springtime and the weather was just amazing. The white stone houses scattered through this little island with its windmills, white sand beaches and beautiful warm people. I would definitely recommend this trip! Here are the compilation of some of my outfits, looks and island adventures. Check out the blog for some weekly posts: http://www.LuxuriaBeauty.wordpress.com

Tell me your stories of Grecian islands, I’d love to hear them x

Mediterranean Sunshine…

The Mediterranean is as beautiful as it’s made out to be. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to visit Greece a couple of weeks ago and now I would love to show you some pictures of the beaches and my beach look, of course.

IMG_2411

These pictures really did not need editing for it to look like an actual dream or that I jumped right into a postcard. Be sure to put Greece on your top places you want to visit. You won’t regret it! It was not quite the warmest time of year but it was a nice warm 20 degrees and under the sun, it felt much warmer than that.

The pink of my dress really pops when I’m against the beautiful blue seas. I did not know how much I just loved this dress until this trip. I’m wearing a maxi dress from Boohoo.com, my necklace from Mint Berry and it is super dainty and perfect for this weather and sunnies from H&M. As you can probably tell already, I really only wear gold.

My lipstick is Red Alert by Luxuria Cosmetics which you can see goes perfectly with the pink outfit too! Versatility is our speciality.

Can’t wait to share the rest with you guys! If you want a travel post on Greece, make sure to let me know!

Love,

Blue Paradise…

Hi beauties!

Sorry we have been gone for so long but we have been a little busy sorting stuff out and had some technical glitches on the way as well. Now we are back and ready for you again!

Last week I had the chance to travel to Greece, I was not sure as to what to expect exactly but I was nonetheless excited. When I got there I could not believe my eyes, everything in Mykonos looks like a picture perfect postcard. In Athens however, there were good parts and bad but the city was as warm and welcoming as the island.

IMG_0258

This post will feature my outfit from one of the most beautiful days (weather wise) in Mykonos. Mykonos turns into a party island in the summer months but in spring and in autumn its tranquility and beauty really radiates. So if you are just going to chill, don’t go in the summer.

IMG_8052

My Nikes have seen better days- I wore them out on this trip, so much walking and I go for comfort always whenever I am travelling. Although I am pleasantly surprised with the sneaker + dress combo.

IMG_3213

I absolutely love pairing bold colours against each other- it just brightens up my entire day. I chose to pair Cranberry Creme Lipstick against my cobalt blue maxi. Even in warm weather by the sea, the lipstick lasts for hours, I only reapplied it once at night after dinner. I wore it from the morning, we walked the towns, went to the beaches, had lunch, walked some more, sat by the seaside and then had dinner and only after then did my lipstick finally need some touching up. It is great for moisturizing your lips too so you can skip your lipbalm and just carry a kickass colour with you while you’re travelling like I did.

IMG_3214

My dress is from BooHoo.com, my shoes from Nike, Bag from a boutique shop, glasses from H&M, jewellery from everywhere!

This is Peter the Pelican’s friend I am standing next to in Mykonos. Story has it that a fisherman found a pelican hurt, nursed it to health and when it recovered it didn’t leave the island, instead it just hung out there till it died, Peter was his name. Ever since, now there are 2 more pelicans chilling in the island, here I am awkwardly trying to pose next to it while it was cleaning its feathers.

If you are were not sure about Greece, I hope you are now! People on this island are lovely, very warm and kind. You will feel right at home.

Love,

Volcanic Love…

This look is effortlessly beautiful. Perfect for work days and night outs with your friends. A very natural look with a little bit of an edge. Spunky is never a bad thing. It is important that you be yourself and not scared to experiment or try new things.

Diana Danielle pulls this look off so well. Everyone can try a bold colour on their eyes if they blend it well and match it with a beige softer colour. Our eyeshadows are perfect for natural blending to create beautiful effects for every look.

This lady is former Miss Malaysia, winner of many other beauty pageants (including Miss Personality, Catwalk, Vogue, Photogenic), Miss Joanne Kwan.

I love the colour pink. Pink roses. Pink shoes. Pink dress. Pink lipstick just like Nude Pink by Luxuria Cosmetics which I am wearing in the picture above and below. I only wear it on special occasions. Very special and very important ones. If you ever want to buy me a gift, try it in the colour pink even eyeshadows in pink.

I love shoes. Bags and clothes. I often tell people I have nothing to wear. In actual fact I have 3 wardrobes. 4th wardrobe is in progress. 2 shoe cabinets currently with a 3rd on its way. I’m a bit of a shopaholic. When I see something in the mall or when I am in line, I jus can’t help myself. But will I actually get to wear it? This little voice in me say: “you might need it later” haha

Food. I don’t have a sweet tooth. My favourite which I’ll never say NO to… is a bowl of soup noodles. I can have it all day everyday. Not forgetting KFC. I know it’s bad. But it taste so good. Try taking me to KFC. You will see me smile!

I love to write. It’s all about romance. Love. I appreciate love. I can be a very romantic girl who will make you a lunch box. I can even surprise you with gifts. A box full with gifts. I pay attention to all the minor details of a person that I love.

I have always love hip hop and R&B. However, I can sing but I can never rap. I usually skip the rapping part but I like to pretend that I know how to rap. I bet other people do this to.

All makeup looks created with Luxuria Cosmetics.

Casual Sundays…

IMG_1848

 

I don’t know about you but my favourite days are definitely Sundays… It’s a day for yourself, for your family and to just relax. I spent my last Sunday walking and running some errands. The beauty in nature is so calming and relaxing. For me walking is like a combination victory for me, I get a nice workout while enjoying the outdoors. I always dress casual on Sundays, easy for anything and everything.

Wearing my Nikes, MNG jeans, Promiss Grey Sweater, my trustee snapback, H&M bag and Barbour jacket with my fav Luxuria Nude Pink lipstick for the perfect effortless sporty day.

Oriental Love…

Hey Beauties,

February has always been our favourite month of the year, and for obvious reasons too! It’s the month of being hopeless romantics and celebrating love and togetherness with our respective families and that’s our take on Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year. To commemorate these two celebrations this month, we at Luxuria Cosmetics had an amazing photoshoot (made possible  by our tres magnifique team! Thanks guys!) and we are so excited to share with you our Oriental themed fashion shoot and we certainly hope you enjoy these beautiful pictures.

We would like to wish you all Happy Chinese New Year and stay flawless!

Our beautiful co-founder: Diana Danielle

The Oriental theme is inspired by the Chinese culture, known to celebrate opulence and intricacy in terms of fashion. We had the privilege to work with Max Mak, a celebrated designer who channeled these looks beautifully.

Red has always been THE colour of Chinese New Year and there is no reason why you should not include this majestic colour in your closet. In the Chinese tradition, this bold colour brings luck and good fortune which is why most of the Chinese New Year decorations are in this color.  Red is also the colour in Chinese weddings, representing good luck, joy and happiness, thus, it should be your colour of choice. With all these good vibes coming to you by wearing red, don’t be surprised if you receive a pair of red-soled Louboutins in the near future, ladies!

Our beautiful Luxuria girl: Iman Mohamed Osman

Besides the color red, yellow and gold are also the colors that we often see during the Chinese New Year celebrations. The Chinese saying, Yellow generates Yin and Yang, implies that yellow is the center of everything. Yellow symbolizes neutrality and good luck and is sometimes paired with red in place of gold.

It  also represents freedom from worldly cares and is thus esteemed in Buddhism as seen where Monks’ garments are yellow, as are elements of Buddhist temples.

And of course, no celebration is complete without flowers! Flowers have recurrent presence in our photos as it is in tandem with our Oriental theme. We love pairing themes from different extremes together, pairing bold colors with dainty pretty flowers. A metaphor we would like our readers to understand as being a woman, with the concept of Yin and Yang, it is important to face the world as independent, poignant, opinionated and strong but we must never forget to enhance the femine qualities we already posses as a woman such as being sensual, soft-spoken and of course all that while having our make up on point!

All fashion looks styled by Max Mak (@maxmak7288). We’ll be interviewing Max Mak on his inpisration next week for the blog so stay tuned!

MaxMak is a Malaysian fashion designer and stylist and clearly is very talented.
