SS17 Trend: Highlighters

I have posted about some new highlighters a while ago, but this trend is not going anywhere, in fact, it is becoming even more popular. Here are just a few more new highlighters (and new shades from Dior), but there are many more new, and cult favourite, options on the market right now.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter, $44 from Sephora

“A lightweight, coconut-infused gel highlighter that can be applied to skin directly or added into foundation or primer for a universally flattering glow, formulated with five forms of coconut and provitamin B5 to help hydrate and nourish skin.”

Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter, $30 from Sephora

“Liquid-to-powder formula, Love Light takes the best of powder, liquid, baked and cream formulas to create unparalleled color payoff for a pearl radiance and silky smooth texture. It features a luminosity boosting agent and high pearl consistency that instantly brightens.”

There are three shades to choose from and they give some

SS17 Eye Shadows Palettes: Stila, Tarte, Viseart, LORAC, Kat Von D, Smashbox

Back in the days I was buying eye shadow palettes like there is no tomorrow but in the last several years I have stopped, and now I prefer quads, or even duos. I rarely use more than two shades on my eye lids anyway. But if you are, like my friend,  palette-crazy, I have selected some brand new releases for SS17.

Enjoy, and happy shopping!

Contouring? Strobing? Move over! There is a new trend in town, and that is colour correcting.

A Week in Lipsticks

Recently I was talking a lot about lipsticks with some girls I work with, and this inspired me to wear a different shade each day for a month. I wear the same ones over, and over again but considering how many I have it was about time to change my habit.  So here are the ones I wore last week…

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania (lip swatch)

I am obsessed with it, as you may know, I have to stop myself from wearing it every single day. It is the most perfect vampy (Hey, Drac! yes, I absolutely had to do it) shade.  Whenever I wear it – I am always asked about it. The formula is not too drying and can be applied evenly.  This is the most affordable product from the selection and there are tonnes of other colours in the line.

Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Boost (review and lip  swatch)

Technically this is not a lipstick but, as the name suggests, it is pretty intense when layered so I’ve included it, too. It smells of sweets, feels moisturising on and is the most unique shade out of these all, a violet with a blue base, so beautiful.

ArtDeco Soft Lip Liner Waterproof in #8  and Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Tesoro (review and lip  swatches). Wearing this combo on my Twitter profile photo.
