I have already written about the Lava eye shadow here, so now it’s time for this gorgeous red lipstick which is called Red Carpet.
I am a huge fan of matte lipsticks in general, so was excited about this one.
It applies smoothly, does not drag the skin and looks opaque with just one layer. With two you get an even more intense shades and it lasts for a longer time. This lipstick stays for hours and hours if you put on several thin layers.
Of course, don’t forget to prep your lips before applying Red Carpet, I’d suggest a lip scrub and a balm, as such red colour (and matte finish) demands perfect surface!
I would also recommend a red pencil with it if you are going for a define full-on look. You may also gently dab some product with your fingers for a stain effect. I have tried
So what’s inside my makeup bag? If I had a task to create the look with only five products, here is what I’d use. The products that I like are changing constantly so here are those that I am enjoying at the moment.
So the products are:
Daniel Sandler’s Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer (review)
Ok, yes, that is a bit cheating as it is one-in-two product… It’s a perfect foundation for my dry skin, it evens out the skin tone and gives the complexion a dewy glow, exactly what I am looking for!
Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush
I have been loving the shade 09 Soft Murano a lot lately, in fact, I have been using it almost every single day. It is a high quality product for an affordable price plus the colour is very flattering!
Ellis Faas Mascara
This has been my mascara of choice lately. It gives a nice length, separates the lashes, lasts for the long time, without fading, smudging or flaking. It even survives an
The shades that I have are: Encounter, Caribbean and Burnt Sand.
Encounter is a sheer purple with a blue micro shimmer. This shade would look pretty on green eyes.
Caribbean is my personal favourite and it is a sheer aqua blue with very delicate shimmer. I just love the wash of this shade all over the lid with some black eye liner and a lot of mascara.
Burnt Sand is a metallic gold, the most opaque out of three. It is a very festive shade and would look nice paired with
End of September – end of November are very busy months for me in terms of Birthdays of very special people!
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I like to find out what the person wants to get. Sometimes I’d find out with the help of other people but sometimes I would just ask.
I’ve noticed that very often my girlfriends ask for a mascara makeup-wise. In fact, I had two mascaras requests last week.
I though that may be useful information as the holidays are approaching. And since almost every woman wears mascara, you can’t really go wrong.
Here is just a photo of some random mascaras that I’ve found in my personal makeup stash.
Ellis Faas mascara, Hourglass Film Noir mascara, DiorShow Ultimate mascara, Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet mascara, Benefit BADGal mascara, Smashbox Bionic mascara, Lancome Hypnose mascara, Daniel Sandler Baby Jet mascara, BECCA The Ultimate mascara.
As promised here are my thoughts about the new Daniel Sandler’s Lipshines in Buff and Tangerine which are out this summer and are limited edition.
They come in a signature DS Cosmetics packaging which looks very chic to me. Both shades are beautiful:
Tangerine is a bright vibrant but very wearable hot orange with a sheer glossy texture. Although I personally love hot pink more than hot orange on myself, I wore this shade every single day during my holiday and I still wear it a lot as it looks perfect on slightly tanned skin.
Buff is a metallic beige shade with a complex shimmer. You can wear it rather opaque and metallic or blot it down, as I do, to a beautiful sheer effect. I think a lot of ladies will love such colour. Lipshines feel nice on the lips, non-drying and even moisturizing, I would say. You basically get a
