I can get inspiration for the posts pretty much from everything, and often it is music.
The other day I have been listening to this song (The Echo Friendly “Panic” here) with the following lyrics: “Put on my blush and lipstick and try to look optimistic”.I was having a rough time, so it made me think…
Makeup can be seen [and often is] as something shallow, and vain, but it is not necessarily so. If it makes you feel better, and lifts up your spirits, why not using it?
Of course, it won’t change the situation, but it can be a great distraction, and even “help”, during the worst times.
I think it is easy to get all apathetic when it’s hard to see the reasons to keep going. But, when you make an effort and put on makeup, do your hair and nails, and spritz your favourite perfume – it makes a difference. Trust me, I know what I am talking about. After all, how can looking bad when you feel bad can help?
And… what are my “optimistic” shades of blush and lipstick. DefinitelyRead More
Can you believe that it’s the last month of Autumn? And the holidays are just around the corner? Speaking of holidays, I still need to book everything. How very last minute, I know.
And today let’s take a look at the beauty products that I have been loving in November.
This month it was very similar base-wise for me, as in October.
I have been using BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector almost every day, since the lack of sleep and non-stop lifestyle do impact the way my skin looks. To fake a healthy glowing complexion, this is my personal must have.
On top I have been loving Awesome Aqua Radiance CC Cream or Daniel Sandler’s Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer. DS’s foundation is one of my all time favourites, it definitely is radiant and glowing. Yes, there is a theme here, my dry and dehydrated skin needs some glow and radiance…
It’s the second month that I have been neglecting blushers almost completely. And my favourite cheeks product is stillRead More
It’s been a while since I did a post about brushes… So, I think, it’s time a for a little update. I’ve decided to show you my most used face brushes whether it’s on myself or when I am doing someone’s makeup.
There are 6 that I absolutely have to have.
Let’s take a look:
Rouge Bunny Rouge Face Contour Brush 012 (Review)
This is my newest brush, and my favourite for contouring. I have quite a few which I’ve collected over the years but they all are forgotten now, since I have this one. It has a perfect shape that goes right under the cheekbones. The bristles are firm but soft, which makes it a perfect contouring brush.
- Can be purchased from Beauty Bay and Beauty Habit.
Japonesque 924 Travel Blush Brush (review)
Japonesque rule the brush world, they are among the best. And their 924 Blush Brush is my favourite face brush that I own from them. It feels incredibly nice and soft on the skin and blends the product nicely. This is my blush brush of choice but I often use it for powder, too, as I am not a big fan of big powder brushes.
Daniel Sandler Blusher Brush (mentioned here)
This month I was away visiting my family in the hot and sunny climate so I came back with a nice golden tan. The main reason why I love it? Now I can experiment with makeup colours that usually don’t look that nice with my light skin tone.
Say hello to golden eye shadows, bronzers, orange-y blushers and lipsticks. Speaking of bronzers, there will be a feature about cream bronzers next week, so stay tuned. And most importantly, navy blue inRead More
I don’t watch that many YouTube beauty videos, but there is one that I really liked, and that was Lip Products Addict Tag. I thought I’d do my own version in form of a post. So here we go…
My favourite lip treatment, sadly, has been discontinued, so the one that you can buy now has to be NUXE’s Reve de Miel. I am not very original here, but this thing is da bomb! It does everything you’d want a lip balm to do, nourishes and moisturizes the lips; it’s a perfect overnight balm.
Best Eye Catching Red
I do love a good red and have a lot in my rotation, but I’ve noticed that I get the most compliments whenever I wear Daniel Sandler’s Red Carpet Red. The name speaks for itself, no? It’s a gorgeous and flattering red, I highly recommend.
You can buy it from Feel Unique for £13.25.
Best Luxury and Best Drugstore Lipstick
My most-used luxury lipstick has to be Dior Addict, so I’ll include thisRead More
