I think I have already told this story, but why not sharing it once again. When I was a child the most fascinating thing for me, makeup-wise, was a colourful mascara. I remember that I was about 6, when I saw a girl with blue eye lashes, and I just couldn’t take my eyes off her. I promised myself that when I grow up – I will have a lot of different shades!
And, although, I don’t really wear blue or green mascaras that often – I do like more subtle versions for a change. Here are three that I want to share with you.
Clarins Instant Definition Mascara in Intense Plum (review)
This was a Limited Edition, but since it’s my favourite colourful mascara that I ever owned, I had to include it. Plus, you can still get it from Amazon.
The formula is brilliant, is gives you that wow-effect, nice volume and intensity. I adore wearing it when I opt for a bright lip and want to keep my eyes look more subtle (and more interesting than just black) but still defined. Actually, I get a lot of compliments when I am wearing it.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Dramatic Lash Mascara Megaplumes in Oxblood Panache (review)
I am the biggest oxblood fan, I have been wearing it for yearsRead More
I love writing Monthly Beauty Favourites posts, they make me analyse what products I used the most, and loved the best. I am also always happy when you find a good product through my recommendations
Not gonna lie, October was a rough month for me, a lot of stress and lack of sleep. Most of the time I don’t bother with a good base that much, but this month I was constantly “rocking” dark circles, horrible skin-tone and even some breakouts. I just looked very tired in general.
So to imitate the “I-am-doing-great-thanks” skin I was using my favourite Pearl Shimmering Skin Perfector by BECCA all over the face as a base to give me some glow. Since I have very dry skin, it did not look greasy or shiny on me, in fact, I loved the effect.
Then I followed with Clarins’ Tinted Moisturizer, which is one of my favourite products for face, ever. Read the review to find out why it is that special.
If you read this post, you probably know that I have been ignoring the blushers lately. So, of course I had to includeRead More
My personal lipstick drawer is getting out of control. But I keep using the same products over, and over again. So last week I’ve decided to plan my “weekday lipstick wardrobe” in advance. Here are the five products I’ve chosen:
BECCA Ultimate Matte Lip Colour in Eloise (review and lip swatches)
This is the lightest shade of all and the only matte formula from the selection. Eloise is a beautiful baby pink that suits any look, just make sure that your lips are in a great condition, as otherwise it may enhance the dry patches.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick Succulence of Dew in Murmurings (review and swatches)
I have been loving this lipstick recently, it feels extremely comfortable on the lips, hydrating and moisturizing. Plus it givesRead More
Never underestimate the power of a good base! Today I want to show you a really great one - Instant Light Eye Perfecting by Clarins.
Why do I like it?
As the name suggests, it instantly evens out the eye lids. And I truly appreciated the effect when I was doing the makeup on a client who had really a lot of blue veins showing through. This products created a perfect canvas to begin the work with.
The formula smooths the skin, and makes the eye shadows stick to it better. Just make sure that you apply a thin layer and spread it out evenly. That makes the eye shadows last a lot longer withoutRead More
If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen this photo, and my promise of the feature. So here it is…
Actually, believe it or not, but usually I don’t care about dark circles (on myself, not when I am doing someone’s makeup), unless they really look that bad. But when I do want to look flawless, here is what I do.
First of all, I use a good eye cream, for me it has to be a moisturizing balm, as I have very dry skin. I love Clarins Special Eye Contour Balm Dry Skin (review) and FOM London Revitalising Eye Care Balm (read about it), I leave it for some time while I am getting ready, and afterwards the following products are being used:
Benefit Erase Paste Concealer (review and swatches)
It is a great concentrated creamy product that counteractsRead More
