Spring is the start of the new season, and it is the time when we all want changes. I thought I’d share a little list of things that inspire me these days. Hope you enjoy.
Here is part one, my beauty list:
1. Start Wearing Bright Lipstick!
My friend is wearing Illamasqua Atomic. And myself – Guerlain KissKiss in 325 Rouge Kiss.
I wrote a post about makeup during a hard time here. As, I’ve already said – it won’t make whatever you are going through go away, but it does make a positive impact. Every little thing helps.
2. Get That Glow.
3. Invest in that “Radiance” Skincare.
Makeup is amazing! But it all starts with good skin. After winter it may look dull, grey and tired, this is why good quality serums and oils are a must-have. Below you can see two great options, and I plan onRead More
The second biggest thing for SS15, after contouring (I have featured tonnes of products here) is definitely eye brows!
And while contouring may not be that necessary – groomed eye brows is a must! Luckily, most brands do at least some kind of products these days, so you get to pick from premium offerings to budget-friendly options.
Here are some of the newest releases:
Lancome Sourcil Tint Longwear Eyebrow Pen ($26 from Nordstrom)
A felt-tip pen with matte finish. Available in Blond, Brun, Chatain and Noir.
Makeup wise, it was pretty much all the same in February, and you can read about all the products here. There is also something very different from me this month – I’ve been loving nude lipsticks (which is a complete shock for me), and I will write a feature about it soon.
There are only two other makeup products that I want to mention:
Illamasqua’s Nail Varnish in Nomad. I wore in for the whole last week of the month, and this gorgeous jade set me in the mood for Spring. Not too pastel but not too bright, it is just perfect.
Max Factor’s Creme Puff Blush in 25 Alluring Rose. This is a shade created for medium and dark skin tones, so on me it looks like a bronzer. It blends out beautifully and gives a gorgeous glow. Look out for the feature about these new blushes this week.
As for the beauty products – I was very stressed and completely out of time in February, so shower time was the ultimate luxury and “me” time when I could just think and reflect on what was going on. I have tonnes of shower products in my tiny bathroom, and have been loving all of them, but twoRead More
In case you’ve missed, almost every brand brought out something for contouring this season, and I have already featured a lot of products. But there are even more…
Here are four other options. I haven’t tried any of the products, so can’t share my impression, this is why I’ve included the official description.

I have to give it to Illamasqua, the promo images of their new campaign Facets are the best ones they released in this year. Such a beautiful fabric on the background with the rich colours and beautiful dimensional embroidery.
And how gorgeous is the makeup? Inspiration alert!
