La Luna Vita Lifestyle Blog

So today I’ll be discussing about life and one if it’s major events if you’re in university/college: graduation. I graduated and obtained my bachelor’s back in October, six months have passed -- and as usual, time always seems to have a faster pace than us. I was fortunate enough to study a career I enjoy and land a job in a related area. I realized however, that even though things seem to have turned out well, it doesn’t mean I have everything figured out.

I’m not sure if you remember the final scene from Finding Nemo. When all the fish get to escape the dentist’s office while he’s cleaning the tank. The fish are placed in separate plastic bags with water, and they roll out the window and land in the sea. They’re thrilled to have escaped! And the following question is: now what?

Life after graduation

La Luna Vita Blog

Hi there! Today I will be sharing my daily go-to makeup routine.  As much as I love makeup, I don't go full out on daily bases. So you won't find anything fancy. I like to keep things simple --I firmly believe that sometimes less is more, hence allowing my skin to breathe. 

I start off with the foundation or BB Cream. Before that, I apply facial sunscreen and let it dry for a few minutes. On occasions use liquid foundation (Maybelline Super Stay Foundation), but that happens mostly when I'm breaking out during *that* time of the month. Otherwise, I will use The Body Shop Tea Tree BB Cream. It's the only BB cream that I've tried so far that actually has good coverage.

Daily Makeup Routine

la luna vita blog

Hello! In case you haven't noticed, I changed the theme for the blog. I wanted something different, since I've had the same style (posts on the left, sidebar on the right) for years. This time I went for a gridded one. Also, I kinda sorta implemented a new logo *cheers*. It's a sleeping moon with dangling hearts and diamonds. Simple but I love it. After sticking for so long to one name (it's a miracle, I'd constantly change the names of my previous blogs) I felt it was the right time to start giving it some "brand" identity. I place quotation marks on the word brand because I don't intend for this blog to become a brand per se. As I've mentioned it before, it's my hobby and what I enjoy doing in my free time.

Revamping: Blog + Insta

Hi there! I’m a big fan of The Body Shop store, although there isn’t one here in Peru. Thankfully my aunt who recently went to Spain was able to bring me these products. They’re only three, two of them which I have already used in the past. What I like the most about this brand that that it is cruelty free, something hard to find in my country.

Now, moving on to the products. First we have the Moringa Hand Cream. Besides keeping the hands moisturized, drying fast and not leaving a sticky sensation, can we talk about the scent? The first time I ever walked into The Body Shop was back in 2014, when I went on a trip to Europe. The section of body creams had the usual ingredients: coconut, strawberry, aloe vera, etc. When I spotted the word “Moringa” it caught me eye, so I tried it and let me tell you: it’s the BEST scent ever. Floral and subtly sweet, a bit hard to describe it without using positive adjectives.

Another product I absolutely recommend is the Argan Oil Spray for body and hair. Yes, it’s a two in one product, which is what I love the most. I normally apply the oil on my hair before going to bed. It smoothes the frizz over night, waking up to soft and manageable curls. What’s left on the palm of my hands, I just spread it over my arms and legs. Plus, it has a pleasant smell as well.

Finally, this is the first time I ever try their Matte Lip Liquid. I chose the color Windsor Rose 032. On their website, the rest of the colors seem to be too strong for my liking. However, once you apply it, it is not as pigmented as I thought it would be, so I kinda regret not going for a darker shade. As for the durability, it lasts for several hours, it won’t stain napkins once dried --but it still doesn’t beat Kylie’s matte lipstick. The positive side is that it keeps your lips moisturized, unlike Kylie’s that does make the lips dry after a couple of uses (at least in my case, which is why I only use Kylie’s matte lipstick once in awhile).

That would be all for now. I hope that sometime in the near future The Body Shop does open a store here in Lima, everytime I visit their website there are so many products that I wish to purchase. 'Til next time!
