MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

Since my post about pink blushers got so many views, I’ve decided to write one about reddish ones, too. Do let me know, if you’d like me to choose 5 corals/peaches and berries/plums…

Red(ish) Blushers Hourglass, Clarins, Benefit, Max Factor and MeMeMe

So here is what I’ve picked:

Hourglass Aura Cheek Tint in Flush (review and swatches)

I think that Flush is a perfect name for this sheer water-based blusher, it gives the most natural and beautiful effect.  Cheek Tint is easy to blend, plus it has a nice staying power.

Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in 18 Soft Cardinal (review and swatches)

This is probably my personal favourite! It is a gorgeous cream blusher with “wet & glossy” texture, it doesn’t enhance any dry patches and looks like a second skin, I use it

My Top Five Base Products

I have re-organized a lot of my makeup/skincare/body care/ hair care products this month. Yes, I am still trying to think of the best storage for my nail polishes.

It was a great thing to do since I a) re-discovered a lot of products b) gave away cosmetics that I don’t use any more to my aunt c) it’s just nice to have everything neat and tidy.

Makeup4all Foundations Primers Highlighters ConcealersI actually like keeping some of my most-used products in the Jo Malone packaging, the classic cream and black boxes fit  enough of products and look nice in my flat.  Above you can see  my personal most used primers-bases-concealers.

Showing you my top “base” products seemed like a nice idea, so here we go:

Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory (review and face swatches)

I did not like it that much at first, but now I absolutely adore it. It gives a good coverage for a tinted moisturizer, and is a great product for the days when (you &) your skin is tired and lacks a glow, as it

I already did a post about my favourite bases and cheek products of 2013, so here is the second part which is all about the eyes, lips and nails.  To compare my list t0 2012 favourites click here.

So here we go…

Eyes

Favourite Beauty Products of 2013 Makeup for eyes makeup4allI will start with the eye brows, and my favorite and most-used product, hands down, was Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette (review). It is a must have for me now, easy to use, long-lasting and great shade.

As for the liners – it was super easy to choose: Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner (review), black and glossy liner is in my personal top favourites ever. When I am in the mood for the cat eye, this is the product I always use. Plus it’s so easy to control.

For an every day use, and I’m sure this is no surprise to you, I always use Lancome’s Le Crayon Khol in Brun Noir (review). I have so many eye pencils, but 99% of the time I use this one. It’s a perfect blackened brown which is very soft and easy to blend, dreamy.

When it comes to mascaras, I have two favourites, as well. One in a classic black shade, which is  Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in 10 Noir (review), easily one of the best mascaras I have ever tried, ultra black and mega volumizing. I have a small sample but am buying a full size.

I also want to mention a colourful mascara - Rouge Bunny Rouge Dramatic Lash Mascara Megaplumes in Oxblood Panache (review). It is an innovative shade which looks beautiful on the lashes, what you is is what you get.

And, of course, I have to mention Anastasia’s Genius Top Coat (review) which changed my beauty life.

There are so many  great eye shadows that I could

December 2013 Beauty Favourites

I plan on writing a post about my  favourite beauty products of 2013 in New Year, but thought that I would still write about my December 2013 favourites, since there are several very nice products I’d like to share about.

December 2013 beauty favourites hair and body products1Makeup

Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette  (review)

This has been a favourite every single month ever since I’ve got it.  It is perfect, I only wish the shade was a bit cooler, but that is fine.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner  (review)

It seems like I have been using this eye liner almost every day.  It is super easy to use and leaves a beautiful glossy black line.

ArtDeco Cream Rouge For Cheeks and Lips in 17 Creamy Mauve (review)  and Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Blushing Bride (review).

I like this blush combo so much that I even dedicated a post to it!  You can get a natural sheer wash of colour with ArtDeco, and add dimension and intensity with tatre. Plus such layering means long-staying power.

Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss  in Oyster (review)

I’ve decided to re-discover some old favourites, and this is one of them. I love shimmery cool toned glosses from time to time, and this gloss from Bobbi Brown is uber gougers on the lips, especially paired with
