Although I am still not done with my Christmas gifts wrapping, and shopping, for that matter, it is time to start posting about some Spring collections. And here is the first preview of the Clarins and Too Faced contouring and highlighting palettes.

First of all, how is it December already? I mean how is it the last month of 2016?! Are you excited for 2017? I know I am!
When I have gathered the beauty favourites to take a photo, I have realised that most of them are the same products I’ve featured in October so here are only the ones which I haven’t.
Before we start, I would like to mention some other things I really loved in November which are beauty related, too.
Photos from my Insta
Book – Branded Beauty by Mark Tungate (from Amazon and Amazon UK). I think everyone who is interested in beauty and brands should read it, the book is packed with interesting facts and quotes. I personally really enjoyed the history of so many companies and the explanation about the marketing tips and tricks.
Mr. Selfridge TV Series. (Amazon and Amazon UK). I’ve had this on my to-watch list for a long time already but gave it a go only last weekend, and it is great. I love how it shows the pre -WWI history of the legendary Selfridges. Imagine that it was unthinkable to sell beauty products over the counter back in the days for obvious reasons, it is very well shown in Season 1 Episode 3.
Sparkles. I have to admit, I just have to have anything sparkling these days to brighten up the grey and dark November days, which feel like forever nights actually.
I also simply have to include
Autumn/Winter is the time to introduce oils in your skincare regimen, if for some reason you are not using any yet. This is why today I want to share about one of my favourite oils of all time. And I was actually surprised to to see that I never wrote a feature about Clarins Santal Face Treatment Oil.
I have used up my current bottle, so it seems like a perfect time to share.
Clarins have three facial oils, and this particular one was created for dry skin, with pure
Clarins have been killing it with their eye shadows lately, and I have been completely in love.
I’ve been wearing their summer cream eye shadows pretty much exculively for months (and also made some of my friends get those), and their new Autumn palettes are also to-die-for. I’ve already included them in my monthly favourites, and here is why.
First of all, I like the packaging which feels more sleek and luxurious compared to the old version, the compacts are also not bulky, and are travel-friendly.
Ecah palette contains four eye shadows. I have 03 Brown and 04 Oud, and here is a close up.
There are four palette in general, and the idea is that each palette is designed to compliment a particular eye colour. Mine are created for brown/hazel eyes. The other two variations are: Nude for blue eyes and Rosewood for the green. Although you can, obviously, choose whichever palette.
As for the ones that I have 03 Brown is great for creating shadows and contour, and also for subtle classic brown smoky eyes. However, it is 04 Oud the star of
Please excuse the lack of updates, if you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen that I’ve had some health issues so I had to take a break from pretty much everything, including Makeup4all.
Now that the picture is a bit more clear, and I feel a bit better, I can share the products I have been loving in October, and I I truly am a big fan of everything mentioned.
If I had to choose only one product – that would definitely be Rouge Bunny Rouge Serene Light Skin Perfector, this is probably my favourite product the brand has ever released! It makes your complexion look incredible – the skin just glows. You look radiant and well-rested even if that could not be further from the truth. Since it is a tinted product, I use it without any products on top but you can use the foundation of your choice, I believe it would work great with this one.
Daniel Sandler Rose Glow and Golden Glow Watercolour Blushes (review and swatches). I have re-discovered my love for these beauties! The latest two shades Daniel released have to be my favourites, and I have at least 10 shades. Watercolours look natural on the skin but they add just the perfect amount of colour to make you look youthful. Every beauty lover should try them. By the way, I would recommend this podcast with Daniel, it made me love him even more.
Besides the already mentioned base products, I’ve kept the rest of
