I hope you are enjoying the well deserved time with friends and family, and are ready for 2020!
I’ve decided to post a little round-up of where you can follow me. While I have posted it in the past, here is an updated version.
I try to keep the content of each social media a bit different, so here we go.
To be honest, I am not the biggest fan of Instagram for a few reasons, and it shows. However, there are a few accounts that I absolutely love to follow, and I am now more active there, I post at least once a week, and share stories, occasionally.
I do love Pinterest, on the other hand, and
Regular readers often ask me for more personal updates – and you can actually follow me on Instagram for that. I don’t really post there news or any stock images, but rather those things that I like and enjoy. I have been always forgetting about it but now I post regularly 🙂
I hope you are having an amazing weekend so far! I have been on a mission “Spring Cleaning” – cleaning out everything, I have bags and bags of things that I need to give away to friends or donate. Mostly clothes but I’ve also given away some makeup and other stuff. Clean and de-cluttered living space actually makes a huge difference.
In other news, I’ve also been
A lot of people constantly ask me about my Instagram account. I did not get one for ages because “Makeup4all” name was taken, and I did not want anything else.
But finally, this February, for Makeup4all’s fifth Blog Birthday, I’ve got and account. I did not really post that much. But this week I’ve decided to start using it again. So, I would be very happy if you could follow me. It’s marina_makeup4all.
You can also follow me on:
Here I chat about different things, not only beauty. And it’s the easiest way to keep in touch.
I am obsessed with Pinterest, and I sneakily check it out, add and like images almost daily
usually when I am supposed to be working. Warning: you can find everything there, and it can be addictive.
This is the place where I post all the extra updates, beauty related (like new launches or how-to celebrity looks) that I want to cover but don’t want to post here.
It is one of the best ways to keep a track of all the posts that appear on Makeup4all.
It’s that time of the year when the brands are bringing out new base products. I have posted about a few foundations already (Tom Ford, Bite Beauty, Estee Lauder). In fact, if you want to know more about the new launches follow me on Facebook.
But here is the preview of some primers, foundations and concealers that caught my attention, and I’ve chosen 6 items.
The one which I am curious to try myself is definitely the Givenchy Teint Couture City Balm, £38 later on from from Sephora, Barneys, Neiman Marcus, Harrods, Nordstrom, Escentual and Feel Unique. I wear very light city SPF products myself, and this sounds right up my street. Besides their Teint Couture line is great.
Laura Mercier, The Queen of base products launched 5 primers which have to be mentioned. Shown are the Pure Canvas Primer Illuminating (“enhancing Porcelain Flower Extract and a blend of Micronized Pearls, the primer imparts a healthy glow on skin”) and Pure Canvas Primer Hydrating (“Olive Extract visibly smooths and locks in hydration while Marine Hydra Botanicals replenish skin and promote long term moisture recovery”). There are also Pure Canvas Primer Blurring, Pure Canvas Primer Protecting and Pure Canvas Primer Perfecting. $38 each from the website.
Please excuse the lack of updates, it has been crazy busy work and other projects wise, so I had no chance of updating the website, although I really wanted to.
But today I want to give some male grooming products gifts ideas a shout out. I have actually written a guide, based on my friends’ recommendations a while ago but here are two other products that are worth mentioning. One luxury, and one – a budget option. And you already saw these if you follow me on Instagram.
The luxury option is Charles Farris Grand Cascade Signature Reed Diffuser ( £32 from their website or from Amazon UK).
It is described as a “deep, smoky aroma of cedar, aged leather and birch, offset by fresh moss and amber. Inspired by the aged leather and woodsmoke scents of our heritage industries”, and it is exactly that. This would make an excellent gift for a classy and sophisticated man who appreciates luxury products.
The budget option is
