MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

Even several years ago contouring was a pro thing but now everyone does it. It seems like contouring is now such an essential, as mascara, or we are getting there.

In the past it was hard to find a good product, as often they were too orange, too muddy etc. But now, with such a competition, the brands stepped up their game, so finding  a suitable shade and formula shouldn’t be a problem.

If you are still not contouring (now it sounds like a sect, ha!), SS 15 is a perfect time to start, as there are tonnes of new releases. I have already mentioned  Kat Von D, BECCA and Laura Mercier. By the way, if you are not ready to spend a lot on this step – Jane shares about the new Chiseled  palette from Barry M here.

But there are more…

Favourite Red Lips Combo: Stila and ArtDeco

If you follow me on Instagram or read my About section – you have probably noticed that black and red are my favourite colours. I can never have too many black clothes or too many red lipsticks and nail polishes.

I have written about that so many times, but today I want to share my latest red lip combo obsession which I have discovered “by accident ” and have been wearing for weeks now. It is the red  that I have been rocking all holidays. I even included a photo…

Favourite Red Lips Combo Stila and ArtDeco beauty makeup

So what are the products?

ArtDeco Soft Lip Liner Waterproof in #8 (review and swatches) (It is available for £8.40 from Beauty Bay.)

I have shared my love for this so many times… I like how long lasting and matte it looks, and the deep cool toned red. But I just wanted something brighter and warmer. So I have decided to put Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Tesoro (review and swatches;  £15/$22. You can buy Stila from Sephora and Beauty Bay. Sephora) on top. On its own Stila is too warm and orange for my complexion. But together it was a dream-came-true combination.A classic matte, vibrant, full-on red! Show stopper, if you want.  It also

Here are the two new face products for summer 2014 that caught my attention.

Clarins Hydra Quench Tinted Moisturizer and Stila Sun Gel summer 2014

First of all, there is a new product in my favourite Clarins range (I have re-purchased it several times) HydraQuench – Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15  (£30, 50 ml). The brand promises radiant skin and a natural healthy glow.

According to Clarins, their tinted moisturizer does the following:

  • Boosts the skin’s own hydrating mechanisms by stimulating the production of filaggrin, a protein of cells in the epidermis which helps to reinforce the skin’s barrier function.
  • Moisturises all skin levels with the combination of two forms of hyaluronic acid: one of high molecular weight and the other of low molecular weight.
  • Protection from UV rays with 100% mineral protection and SPF15, defence from harmful effects of pollution and protection from free radicals.
