AW19 Foundations: Chanel, Charlotte Tilbury, Pat McGrath, Anastasia, Clarins and Kevyn Aucoin

Autumn is the time to be browsing  foundations, as so many brands are bringing new  ones out. So here are just a few that caught my attention. And it’s  incredible how brands now do such a wide variety of shades, and some even demonstrate all shades applied.

February 2018 Beauty Favourites

February Favourites when it is the end of March…It is better late than never, right?

I am still using/loving all the products which I have featured in my January favourites  but there are a few other products which I have added to my routine.

Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Polish in 85 Cerise (review and swatch)

I am having a break from my gel manicures so I am re-discovering the joys of changing the nail colours every few days, and of course Cerise from Max Factor made an appearance. I am on my third bottle, and I am obsessed with this bright fiery red which looks opaque with only one coat.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in  Red Carpet Red (Cult Beauty and Net A Porter.)

Great formula which can be worn as an opaque true matte (ruby) red, or as a stain by gently tapping it in with the fingers. This may sound like such a cliche but I feel so glamourous  and confident whenever I am wearing it, the lipstick for dates. The formula is also nice, I do not find it to be drying.

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette  (Cult Beauty and Net A Porter.)

June 2017 Beauty Favourites

June was a very busy month for me, so I did not discover/rediscover that many beauty products, however, I truly love the ones I am mentioning, they are real gems.

Makeup

Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20 (review and swatches). (Buy it from Cult Beauty, Net a Porter, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom)

This is one of the best base products I have ever used. I am convinced it is some kind of Magyar mágia (Hungarian magic), as it makes the face look flawless, radiant and even younger. As I have mentioned in my original review, my friend was very skeptical about my big love for this, but after trying mine, she ordered one the next day. I personally think that you can’t really go wrong with Omorovicza products in general.  They are very expensive but are worth it.

Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes Mascara and  Colour Chameleon in  Amber Haze. (Buy CT from Cult Beauty, Net A Porter, Nordstrom and Bergdorf Goodman)

I should really write detailed reviews about the Charlotte Tilbury products. Both of these  were a present from a friend, and I am happy she thought of me. Legendary Lashes mascara creates absolutely incredible lashes: full, voluminous and long. Not that many mascaras will give you this effect. However, it smudges like crazy, and unless I use it with a waterproof top coat – I will end up with mascara on my upper lids. But I am kind of ready to forgive this for the effect I get.  Colour Chameleons were

Big Little Lies Makeup Breakdown

When it comes to films and series, there are usually a lot of “Steal Her Style” features where the authors suggest what pieces you could buy to get a similar look to your favourte character, should you chose to do so.

But there are not enough articles which focus on beauty or makeup looks, if you ask me. And that is what I always pay attention to when I watch films/series.  I actually wrote about the beauty elements of Gossip Girl, as well as Blair Waldorf‘s wedding makeup  and Sex and The City already.

I also had a breakdown of the Pan Am looks straight from the Make-Up Artist.

So today I’d like to share about the makeup from the Big Little Lies. Here are the screens from the show when Celeste Wright was getting ready in
