Wow, this is something to get really excited about. Makeup book from Ellis Faas ! She is a genius so this must be a real eye candy.
I love how this book is described, so I will just leave you with the official promo release:
“It is typical of the art of ellis faas to question and destabilise the rules and expectations of the beauty industry, to explore definitions and push boundaries of beauty.
While adopting traditional tools and techniques of the trade, she attempts to transcend the industry’s restrictions, the idealised sense of perfection and the tendency towards global uniformity.
To this end she makes use, in turn, of visual
Ellis Faas are launching a new product, Glow Up – a facial illuminator, which will be available from next Monday (December 1st).
Here is Ellis’ philosophy on highlighters and her tips on how to use a product:
“Playing with light is one of the best tricks in make up. Light emphasises shape and glow. Attracting light to certain parts of your face will illuminate it and bring it to life. The best way to attract light to your face is with the soft focus properties of the reflective pearls in Glow Up. These finely milled particles provide radiance with a soft subtle shimmer. It leaves you with a delicate glow that helps to mask any imperfections, adding a satin-soft and porcelain finish.
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)

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 this
