So let’s take a look at cheek palettes, and there are quite a few, these are just the ones I’ve chosen.
Without a doubt, the most covetable palette of the SS19 season will be this lill gem from Chanel – Voyage de Chanel (£52 from the website) which is a blush/illuminating powders quad.
- Paris – A fresh and satiny pink blush that recreates the flush of brisk air of Paris along the banks of the Seine River.
- London – A deep coral blush, inspired by the colourful façades of the Portobello Market in Notting Hill.
- New York – A satiny powder that brings to mind the metallic golden finish of the Brooklyn Bridge.
- Tokyo – A subtly rosy illuminating powder that recalls the poetic grace of cherry blossoms in Japan.
Besides Chanel, there are a few other gorgeous palettes to choose from:
Today I’ve decided to keep my makeup minimal, as I will spend most of my time (and money, le segh) choosing the items for my home makeover.
I’ve started with the brand’s Aqua Primer, it has a lovely light texture that smooths the face and doesn’t clog the pores. Then I have applied Benefit’s Erase Paste under the eyes which is brilliant for counteracting the blue tones. I have finished off with Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Flawless face Powder Precious Velvet in Piano Forte. It has a medium coverage and feels light on the skin. I don’t usually use powders but am experimenting with some at the moment.
To give myself some glow, I have dabbed Benefit’s High Beam on the cheek bones, under the brow bone, above the upper lip and on the bridge of the nose. From
Today I wanted to keep it very simple in terms of makeup, it’s almost like the recent tag – 5 product makeup face.
I have used a very light base – BECCA’s Luminous Skin Colour which looks very natural on, as if you are not wearing anything, so it won’t cover any major imperfections. But it does even out the skin tone and makes it [the skin] show through.
Then I added Daniel Sandler’s Watercolour Blush in Flush, which is one my my favourites, beautiful perky pink with light, non-greasy texture and long-lasting formula. It’s perfect !
High Beam is one

It’s almost the end of the year so I just want to share my favourite makeup products for face of 2010! I am not going to name a favourite product in each category but will just name the products that I really loved this year. This is obviously my personal opinion and I would really love to hear about your favourite products!
Illamasqua Satin Primer
This works amazing if you have dry skin. I just mix a tiny bit of this primer with foundation and it gives a beautiful dewy finish. It doesn’t look greasy but I would use it only on the dry skin. Read review here.
Make Up For Ever HD Powder
It works like a “real life” Photoshop, it blurs all the imperfections. Now don’t get me wrong it won’t make your skin look perfect if you have a lot of problems but it does change the way your makeup looks a lot. It is also an amazing products for taking photos. Read review here.
Too Faced Bronzers
These are great for brightening up the face, I use them to give the face the warm glow. Too Faced brozners are shimmery but not over the top, they give just a perfect shade. My favourite are Pink Leopard and Sun Bunny. Read review here.
Hoola by Benefit
This was my favourite bronzer for contouring this year, I’ve used it a lot on myself and on others. It has a matte finish which looks nice on a lot of skin tones. Read review here.
This was the most difficult task to choose my favourite blushes because there are
