I love experimenting with my makeup but sometimes I get stuck in a certain routine, just like now. I have been wearing the same kind of look for the last several weeks almost every day.
So what is it all about?
For the base I’ve been usually using Clarins’ BB Cream or Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturizer to even out the skin tone. I love that both products feel light on the skin, which is exactly what you want in summer.
I have been skipping blusher lately. Shocker, right? And instead I have been using bronzers, just any that is around, really. Below you can see pictured Clarins, Benefit and Trish McEvoy just as an example.
Finally my skin tone is a perfect match for Jouer highlighter, this warm tinted product gives a beautiful golden glow, just perfect paired with some bronzer. I definitely recommend it for a sun kissed look. As for High Beam, it is a good ol’ favourite of mine, it never fails.
I’ve been hardly using any eye shadows, expect this quad from Daniel Sandler and some matte shades. For me it’s all about the
Besides the pretty pastel and girly balm-like lipsticks which are always out for Spring, I have notice one more trend, and that is lacquers. I have chosen 5 different brands just to give you a taste of what is new, lip wise, for SS19.
I am a huge fan of Clarins lip products so would expect Rouge Lacquer to be incredible. The brand promise wet like vinyl finish, hydration and nourishment and easy application, among other things. There are 7 shades to choose from. Shown above is 744 Plum.
Full coverage, highly pigmented, soft matte formula which should be comfortable and long-lasting on the lips. If you want to treat yourself – this is the way to go. There are 10 shades to choose from; shown is
Brands do spoil us with the new lip products launches, as there are even more coming out!
First of all, I am personally very excited about the new Lip Lover lip lacquers by Lancome. Lancome lip products are among my favourites, and these do look promising. You can see how they look like on Lily Collins here. I did a RT of Alex Babsky’s makeup on her. These should be available from March.
I am also curious about the new Gloss Ink Lip Color £8/$16 by Topshop.
It is supposed to have a high-shine finish of a gloss and the long-lasting color of a stain. The brand suggests that it can be worn over other products, on it’s own or blotted for a matte, stained look. There are five shades, and I love Cruel, pictured below.
Bobbi Brown launched a
I have been out several times this week with my friends and, although I wanted to look nice, I did not want to spend hours and tones of products on my look.
So here are the items I relied on:
Since it’s winter, my face definitely could get some help in the “glow department”. Hourglass Illusion Tinted Mositurizer was the perfect choice for that. It does add some radiance to the face which looks nice in the evening.
Although I love cool toned face products in winter, I’ve decided to add some warmth this time with Illamasqua’s Allure Powder Blusher and Sienna X’s Cream To Powder Bronzer & Illuminator.
My newest favourite toy for the eyes is Burberry’s Complete Eye Palette in Pink Taupe. I have tried pretty much
I believe that a lot of you already know about the new Lancome Precious Cells mascaras: Hypnose and Definicils.
I saw the new Hypnose mascara just near my place so it was a big temptation to get it because Hypnose mascaras are among my favourite. By the way, there is a Hypnose mascara review scheduled for the evening already. But I’ve realized that I have too many unopened mascaras so I will get this one later.
If you are from the US, there is a new Definicils mascara and, according to Lancome, it’s the World’s best selling mascara.
You can get this mascara at lancome
