answers, part two

So here comes another answer post! For this one I gathered only questions about beauty things: hair, skin care, makeup etc.

Which hair products do you use?
It varies all the time what shampoos and conditioners I’m using, just some cheap basic ones. After washing and before blow-drying I use heat defence spray from TRESemmé and volume mousse from Wella.


Then after blow-drying I use hair spray (at the moment Schwartzkopf got2be) and sometimes I back-comb my hair a little bit from the roots. If I remember I use Wella’s Ocean Sprizz to the ends of my hair to make them look a little ‘clumpy’. If I’m too lazy to wash my hair or if I just want some roughness and good smell I use that TRESemmé dry shampoo.


How often do you cut your hair?
Once or twice a year, pretty rarely

How is your hair styled? Like do you have layers? Do you cut it yourself?
Yep I have layers. I don’t cut my hair myself, I’ve done that a couple of times when I was younger and every time I ruined it :-D Last time my hair was cut in Dynastia hair salon a couple of weeks ago, these pictures below I took there. I really liked the result! And my hair feels now more healthy after cutting the ends off.


(Kiitos Dynastialle pari viikkoa sitten tehdystä hiustenleikkuusta! Tykkään!!)

It is your natural hair color?
Yes. I’ve never colored my hair

how you put your hair like that? it’s like super wavy ! :)
At nights I keep my hair on a bun, then when I open it in the morning I have a little messy waves. But my hair is maybe a little wavy naturally..

Marianna, why don’t you tie your hair in a ponytale? In your older post you did and I like it very much!
I do that pretty often, almost always when I’m in a hurry or just want to keep my hair away.. But I’ll put that in mind, so you’ll see different hair styles in outfit posts.:)

What skincare products do you use?
For face: Biotherm’s Skinergetic (if I’m looking tired) and Lumene’s day cream and night cream


For body: Hollister body lotion, different body lotions and creams from Victoria’s Secret and The Body Shop body butters. Sometimes I blend that selftanner gel (Nivea sun touch) to those other body lotions. I never use it without blending, I’m afraid of getting lines.. And that way the bad smell isn’t that bad.


And my favourite shower gels: Victoria’s Secret Ravishing Love, The Body Shop watermelon & eucalyptus, Palmolive Thermal spa. These all are smelling so good, so good that I try avoid using them too much so that they wouldn’t end.. :-D


Which is your favorite product from The Body Shop?
Peach body butter. It was a season product, too bad.. I should start making an address for TBS to bring that back!

Do you prefer The Body Shop or Victoria’s Secret body butters?
So hard to decide, both are my favourites. But maybe Victoria’s Secret, they’re cheaper. It sucks how TBS products’ prices are always rising.

Do you like Clinique products?
Yes!! I’m waiting for the face wash liquid thing to be in sale somewhere, I used to have it and it was great.

What is your favorite perfume?
Elizabeth Arden Pretty, Kenzo (summer 2011), DKNY Be Delicous, Marc Jacobs Daisy


Do you go to solarium?
Not regularly, I’ve been a couple times but only for special occasions.

Do you have a tattoo? If not, would you like to have and what kind?
No, but some time ago I almost got myself one. At the last minute I decided to think about it more and now I haven’t done it yet. Now I’m not sure anymore, it’s so… permanent. :-D But a small handwritten personal text would be my choice.

Do you wear contact lenses? how bad are your eyes?
Yeah I do. -3.5 and -4.0. When I’m at home doing nothing I wear glasses.

Color nailpolishes or french manicure?
Both are nice, at the moment I prefer color nailpolishes. Plus colored nails are easier to take care of! Different reds, nudes and black are my favourites. Right now my nails are dark burgundy red, love this shade!

How much time you spend on makeup?
0-30 minutes, depends on how my day will look like/what I’m going to do

Your favourite make up products?
Lancome Color Ideal foundation, Dior eyeshadow (earth reflection), MUS Cover All mix, Lancome Juicy Tubes lip gloss, eyelash curler, Lumene: liquid eyeliner, mascara, eyebrow pencil and gel.


Your favourite mascara?
My top 3: Lancome Hypnose Drama, Lumene Excellength, Diorshow Black out

Do you ever use blush or bronzer?
Both, if I remember or have the time to put them on. So not always but usually (at least the bronzer)

And in your last outfit posts, are you wearing a bronzer from guerlain? Or something different?
Yes I use that Guerlain bronzer!

I love your MAC mineralize blush, which color is it please?
The shade is called Dainty. I really like that too, it’s a perfect shade of pink blush.


Any common favorite products with you guys? :)

  34. Flavia says:


    It’s not polite to your followers.

    Why do you ignore our questions?

    • Kate says:

      SHE IS, don’t you see this post???

      She has life, she’s not sitting at the computer all day, like you.

      • Flavia says:

        If you don’t know HOW MANY TIMES I asked her some questions, please shut up.
        I did to her questions in the post on her new house, but she did not answer me.
        I asked her what she will do if the business with his blog ended.
        I think there’s anything wrong with my question. Are you agree?

        • Rachel says:

          She has thousands of followers and readers she can’t possibly answer to every question everybody asks. She doesn’t sit infront of the computer waiting for everybody to ask her questions. It’s not rude ok

  35. Kata says:

    Mulla on samat hiustuotteet, paitti noi wellat :D Ja sulla on just tommosia meikkejä ja hajuvesiä, mitä itte oon halunnu (: Ja aivan ihana postaus, ku oli paljo kuviakin! :)<3

    Love this post!


  52. Maria! says:

    Oh, thnx fo the answers! You are great that you answer to all of them! You are amazing!

  53. didem says:

    I really want to know how you lost so much weight, but you didn’t answer that question :( :(

    • Nadine says:

      What about this:
      Less food & more sports!!!

      Losing weight is not a secret…
      All you need is discipline!

      There is no magic trick or something like that.
      I really don’t know, why you have to ask this stupid question…

      Btw: Please think!!! It may be possible that Marianna had troubles or was sick and because of this lost weight. That would lead to the fact that she doesn’t want to make it public.

  54. Olli says:

    Why do you like TBS bodybutter? Like why is it good?

  55. Flavia says:

    Marianna, why do you choose the specific questions to reply?
    I realized that you only reply to questions that you like.
    Most of your readers don’t want to know the beauty products you use.

    You’re only answering to questions that you like. You instead bypass the inconvenient questions…

  57. Sutton says:

    I love that you took the time to do this post! Your blog is one of my favorites that I follow.

    I love the Dior eyeshadow that you use. Nars and Laura Mercier products are fantastic too. Also something you might want to look into is dry body brushing, it’s great for your skin!

  58. Very interesting! I will try out some of the products you use!

    Hi sweetie, we share birth date, you know? :) Being a bit older than you are I just want to say that you are an inspiring young gal who seems to take the best from her life without loosing touch with the reality.Keep on going like that, Marianna! Wish you loads of luck with your career and studies, I hope your new apartment will bring you many sunny mornings with coffee sipping. I am glad you not overuse the cosmetics, those you presented in Q&A are of decent amount. Biggest envy? Your hair! Almost cried when I read you never dyed them and need just an overnight bun to have them curly—you are sooo lucky! Lots of love, Anna

    I’ve been wanting to try self tanner… But I’m so afraid of how it could end up! Any advice or thoughts?

    • melissa says:

      reallly good! but dont use too much and make sure you rub it in really well so you dont get streaks. do it right after your shower(best if you shower at night) because self tanner has a well known smell and you dont want to seam like you actually use it

  90. Melissa says:

    PLEASE READ! HEY. i bet you get this all the time but youre beautiful!! i recently saw your blog and am loving it. i was wondering if you could do tutorials or post pictures showing how you do your makeup and hair. i would love the advice and help to be as pretty as you(:.
