Monthly Beauty Faves


Today we're starting a new section, Monthly Beauty Faves which summarises beauty products I've bought during the last month. In the beginning of January we're looking into the Christmas month when I managed to give myself quite a few presents. In the beginning is December, a Feelunique advent calendar made of 12 cute Windows made it to me. It meant 12 days of excitement when I opened a window in the morning and got a new beauty product out of the calendar. 

The Feelunique calendar reminds me of Stellarium Box a little which is also made of surprises, regardless of the fact that the brands represented in the box are known. I was vet pleased with this  € 42 calendar, because I found brands that I wouldn't have known to buy myself. For example, a Nuxe lip balm that works like medicine at night or Salcura "Winter Skin" hand cream (85 ml) that I had never heard anything about.



My love for Urban Decay is only growing. When the UD palette created in collaboration with Gwen Stefani came on sale, I got it. This palette surely pleases those who prefer nude tones, but there are also bolder shades for the crazier looks in the palette. Full points for the design. It's a pity to put it in the drawer. I have the most brushes from the brand Zoeva. When I started putting my makeup case together, I got quite a lot of their brushes and I can only sing praise.  Brushes are soft, they're good to work with and there's no need to worry that you can't get a white brush clean. After a wash they're good as new. I also bought three products from the line of the legendary Charlotte Tilbury - I have her foundation Light Wonder, Wonder Glow that gives a healthy glow and Goddess Skin Clay Mask. And... Many Tilbury products best the name Wonder, but I would have thrown one of them out of the window out of disappointment. But soon more about that. Those were my modest purchases in December. Which of the products would you like to read more about? Are you interested in the contents of he Feelunique calendar?



Head uut aastat kõigile Stellariumi sõpradele! Uuel aastal kõik on uus! Tänasest alustab rubriik "Monthly Beauty Faves", mis võtab kokku erinevad ilutooted, mida olen eelmisel kuul ostnud. Jaanuari alguses piilume möödunud jõulukuusse, mil mul õnnestus teha endale õige mitu kingitust. Detsembri alguses jõudis minuni Feelunique jõulukalender, mis koosnes 12 vahvast aknast. See tähendas 12 hommikut elevust, mil avasin ühe akna ja koukisin kalendrist välja uue üllatuse.

Feelunique`i kalender meenutab mulle natuke Stellarium Boxi, mis koosneb suures osas ju ikkagi üllatustest. Ma ise jäin selle 42 € maksva kalendriga väga rahule. Esiteks meeldivad mulle üllatused ja teiseks leidsin sealt sellised kaubamärke, mida ma ise poleks osanud osta. Näiteks NUXE huulepalsam (15 gr), mis mõjub huulel nagu ravim või Salcura "Winter Skin" (85 ml) kätekreem, millest ma polnud varem midagi kuulnud. Kätekreem on suures topsis ja seda jätkub ilmselt järgmiste jõuludeni. Ja kui mitte jõuludeni, siis jaanipäevani kindlasti.

Kui müüki tuli Urban Decay ja Gwen Stefaniga koostöös loodud lauvärvid, otsustasin, et ühe paleti jaoks on mul kodus kindlasti ruumi. See palett meeldib vast nendele, kes eelistavad erinevaid nude-toone, kuid nagu pildilt näha leidub seal ka julgemaid värve, millega saab kõikvõimalikke hullumeelseid meike teha. Täispunktid saab minu poolt paleti disain. Seda on kahju peeglilaua sahtlisse lükata. 



Kõige rohkem meigipintsleid on mul Saksa firmalt Zoeva. Kui hakkasin oma meigikohvrit kokku panema, siis ostsin endale üsna palju nende pintsleid ja mul jätkub vaid kiidusõnu. Iga euro on läinud õigesse kohta. Zoeva kohta võib öelda, et kvaliteedi ja hinna suhe mängib esimese kasuks. Pintslid on pehmed, nendega saab väga hästi meike teha ja pole tarvis karta, et pintsli valge karv tumedamast lauvärvitoonist pestes puhtaks ei saa. Pärast pesu on nad justkui uued. 

Lisaks ostsin endale legendaarse meigikunstniku Charlotte Tilbury sarjast kolm toodet - jumestuskreemi "Light Wonder", nahale sära andva "Wonder Glow" ja suisa legendaarse näomaski "Goddess Skin Clay Mask". Jaa... Paljud Charlotte Tilbury tooted kannavad nime Wonder ehk ime, kuid ühe nendest oleks ma suure pettumuse pärast aknast välja visanud. Sellest teen õige pea eraldi juttu. Need olid minu ostud detsembris. Millistest toodetest soovid lähemalt lugeda? Kas sind huvitaks kogu Feelunique`i kalendri sisu? Milliste ilutoodetega sina end detsembris premeerisid?

Girl Friday 2015


Today we are traditionally looking back at the outfit posts published in Stellarium. Girl Friday is the oldest section that has given the readers a reason to peak into the blog every Friday with a new outfit post. The beginning of year 2015 was snowy and looking back at these images, I wish we could do another series in a pile of snow. This year was the most interesting for me in terms of outfit series, because we got to shoot in so many different places.

In addition to the picturesque Estonia, Meisi and I went to Riga Fashion Week in March, where we defied the snow and sleet and did many series outside. We also had an exciting busy week in London where we did around ten photo shoots in between my makeup classes. There was also a bit more dramatic episode in London. When we were shooting with Meisi, it turned out that we should have asked for permission from the mall to do a shoot that long. That's what a lady that came from the noble mall told us - it appeared that she had been observing us for an hour already from the window. I told her we have a permission and she went back to check it. We kept shooting until she came back and told us that there was no such permission. I told her that there must be and she should check again. To be honest, we didn't have that permission. The lady gave a knowing smirk and let us finish our shoot. 

Meisi said afterwards that shooting in the streets of London was a lot more inspiring than Estonia for her. You live in Tallinn every day, but don't see the beautiful places, because you're so used to the beauty of your home town. But London people were a lot more kind, tourists were capturing our photo shoots, and that was all very exciting. Back in Tallinn, the wigs I used in two photo shoots, created excitement. Old truths - when you start getting bored with yourself, get a wig for one night! Stellarium has often been called a fashion blog, but it's rather a lifestyle web where photo series of my personal style, that doesn't necessarily have anything to do with fashion, are featured. Fashion is mood for me. I don't rush after trends. I believe every woman is truly free in her style only when she wears clothes according to her mood, not pressure what's en vogue and which trends should be followed Here are the most memorable Stellarium outfits from 2015. Which one is your favourite?




Täna ilmub traditsiooniline tagasivaade Stellariumis ilmunud outfiti-postitustele. Meie kõige pikema staažiga rubriik on "Girl Friday", mis on lugejatele andnud põhjust pea igal reedel blogist uut outfiti postitust kiigata. Aasta 2015 algus oli lumine ja vaadates tagasi nendele mõnusalt lumistele kaadritele loodan, et ka tuleval aastal saan hanges poseerida. Tänavune aasta oli minu jaoks outfiti seeriatest kõige põnevam, sest meil oli võimalik pildistada nii mitmetes paikades.

Lisaks maalilisele Eestimaale, käisime Meisiga märtsis Riia Moenädalal. Me trotsisime sealset lund ja lörtsi ning tegime tänavatel mitu pildiseeriat. Samuti oli meil meeleolukas töönädal Londonis, kus minu meigitundide vahele tegime kokku ligi kümme pildiseeriat. Londonis juhtus ka üks närvikõditav seik. Kui pildistasime Meisiga üht seeriat, ilmnes, et selles paigas peab nii pika fotoseeria tegemiseks küsima kaubamajast luba. Nii teatas viisakalt meile üks proua, kes nooblist kaubamajast väljus ja olevat meid juba tund aega pingsalt aknast jälginud. Vastasin, et meil on luba olemas ja proua lubas seda kontrollima minna. Jätkasime pildistamist, kuniks proua ilmus tagasi õue ja ütles, et mingit luba meil pole. Põhimõtteliselt oli tal õigus. Mingit luba meil polnud. Mina vastasin talle aga naeratades, et päris kindlasti peab meil luba olema, äkki ta kontrolliks asja uuesti! Kuid see proua muigas äkki ja lubas meil seeria lõpuni pildistada. 



Meisi ütles hiljem, et tema jaoks oli Londoni tänavatel pildistamine palju inspireerivam kui Eestis. Sa elad Tallinnas iga päev, kuid ei näe neid kauneid kohti, sest oled oma kodulinna iluga harjunud. Kuid Londoni inimesed olid palju lahkemad, turistid soovisid meie pildiseeria tegemist omakorda jäädvustada ja see kõik tekitas mõnusat elevust. Tagasi Tallinnas pakkusid elamusi minu parukad, mida kasutasin kokku kahes fotoseerias. Vana tõde - kui hakkad endast tüdinema, soeta üheks õhtuks parukas! 

Stellariumit on sageli nimetatud moeblogiks, kuid pigem on tegemist elustiiliveebiga, kus on esindatud ka minu isiklikku stiili pildiseeriad, millel ei pruugi moega mingit pistmist olla. Minu jaoks on moes meeleolu. Ma ei rutta trendide järele. Ma usun, et iga naine on oma stiilis tõeliselt vaba vaid siis, kui ta kannab riideid vastavalt oma meeleolule, mitte survele - mis on moes ja milliste trendide tuules tuleb tormata. Siin on Stellariumi aastal 2015 kõige meeldejäävamad outfitid. Milline on sinu lemmik?

All love, Katy Perry


When you look like the world famous artist Katy Perry, there's no doubt it brings along numerous moments to tell the grandchildren in the future. Estonian girl Kati posed for Stellarium in four photo series and they've all been inspired by the Katy Perry H&M campaign. Today you'll see the second two series and Kati will tell five stories about how she was mixed up with Katy Perry, or she's even been asked for an autograph.

Was it a seventh sense or the weather forecast, but it's as if we sender that the days will get colder here. We ditched the glamorous gowns and stylish mini skirts for these two shoots. For the second post, Kati was wrapped in a warm jumper. The one in which Katy Perry was peeking at us with her hypnotic eyes, and for fun we grabbed along the patron of Stellarium, Evelyn the bear. But what are the stories where Kati has been mixed up with Katy Perry?  



"When I was an exchange student in St.Petersburg, I went to celebrate my birthday in a luxury restaurant. When my companion and I had started with our desserts, a young man came to me and very reverently asked for an autograph in English. I smiled to him and wrote on his paper "All love, Kati". He thanked me with even more respect and left."

"When I visited my mum's relative in Estonia, they had two teenage children at the house. When they saw me they shouted "You're like Katy!" and got their phones out immediately. Half of the night passed with them taking selfies with me and them posting them on Facebook. It seemed incredible, but there were those who really believed they were posing with Katy Perry who was visiting them at heir flat in Lasnamäe. I haven't visited them after." 

"The most excitement was definitely created by then H&M campaign in Tallinn. The city was covered in posters. One day I was sitting in my office and working. All of a sudden, I heard a knock and a colleague, a lovely older woman entered. She asked how I became the model of H&M, there are pictures of me everywhere! I replied that it's Katy Perry. She asked "Who, who?". It appeared that she didn't know who Katy Perry was."





Kui sa sarnaned sellisele maailma kuulsale artistile nagu Katy Perry, pole kahtlust, et see toob kaasa terve rea eredaid seiku, mida tasub tulevikus veel lastelastelegi rääkida. Eesti tüdruk Kati poseeris Stellariumile kokku neljas pildiseerias ja need kõik olid inspireeritud Katy Perry kampaaniast H&M`ile. Täna jõuavad sinuni teised kaks pildiseeriat ja siia juurde räägib Kati viis lõbusat seika sellest, kuidas teda oma Katy Perryga seostatud, segi aetud või suisa autogrammi küsitud.

Oli see nüüd seitsemes meel või ilmateade, kuid me oleks justkui aimanud, et siin Eestis lähevad ilmad külmemaks. Nende kahe pildiseeria tegemisel unustasime glamuursed kleidid ning stiilsed miniseelikud. Meie teise postituse puhuks mässisime Kati sooja kampsunisse. Just sellesse, kus Katy Perry piilus meid oma hüpnotiseerivate silmadega ja lusti pärast võtsime pildile kaasa Stellariumi patrooni, karu Evelyni. Kuid millised on need lood, kus Katit on aetud segi Katy Perryga?



"Kui elasin vahetusõpilasena Peterburis, käisin ühes luksusrestoranis oma sünnipäeva tähistamas. Kui olime kaaslasega desserdi kallale asunud, tuli minu juurde noormees, kes küsis väga aupaklikult inglise keeles autogrammi. Naeratasin ja kirjutasin talle paberile: "All love, Kati." Ta tänas mind veelgi aupaklikumalt ja lahkus.

"Kui käisin Eestis oma ema sugulasel külas, oli neil kodus kaks puberteedi ealist last. Mind nähes hüüdsid nad: "Sa oled nagu Katy!" ja otsisid otsemaid telefonid välja. Pool õhtut möödus nii, et nad tegid endast koos minuga kümneid selfiesid ning postitasid need oma Facebooki. Tundus uskumatu, kuid jagus neid, kes arvasid, et nad poseerivad tõepoolest Katy Perryga, kes on nendele Lasnamäe korterisse külla tulnud. Rohkem pole ma seal külas käinud."

"Kindlasti tekitas kõige enam elevust H&M`i kampaania Tallinnas. Kõikjal olid plakatid üleval. Ühel päeval istusin oma kabinetis ja tegin tööd. Äkki kõlas koputus ja uksest astus sisse minu kolleeg, meeldiv vanem proua. Ta küsis: "Kuidas sa H&M`i modelliks said? Kõikjal on sinu pildid!" Vastasin, et see on Katy Perry. Ta küsis: "Kes? Kes?" Ilmnes, et ta ei teadnud, kes on Katy Perry."

Stellarium soovib selle pildiseeriaga kõigile lugejatele õdusat aasta lõppu! Kes on see järgmine kuulsus, keda sa soovid meie muutumismängus näha?


Vaata lisaks meie esimest pildiseeriat: "Sa meenutad mulle Katy Perryt!"
