Looks like Face Of the Day is now a more, or less regular feature. Maybe at some point, I will get brave enough to include photos of myself, too. Who knows?! But, as for now, here are the products that I’ve used and my opinion about them.
This look was all about my good ol’ blush love – Chanel Orchid Rose. I used to wear it every single day years ago, so I’ve decided to show it some love today.
I’ve started with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory to get a medium coverage and glowing effect, that way I didn’t even need a highlighter. It’s a great “foundation” for dull Autumn days. I’ve added some YSL’s Touche Eclat under the eyes, to brighten up the area and make me look less tired.
As, I’ve already mentioned, I’ve used Chanel Joues Contraste in Orchid Rose blush, which is a pretty warm-toned shade. To add even more warmth to the face – I’ve used YSL’s Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder in N° 5 Cinnamon Sand.
I wanted this look to be all aboutRead More
The best thing about the Christmas season, beauty wise, is the fact our favourite brands release amazing limited edition sets. So today I want to share the new launches from two brands that are in my personal top list – Hourglass and theBalm.
We saw a preview of Hourglass’ Ambient Lighting Palette here and it is finally available in the USA for $58. And, according to the brand, will be available in the UK on the 4th November.
So what do you get?
5-ml Veil Mineral Primer and three Ambient Powders, each is 3.3 grams, including one new and exclusive shade.
- INCANDESCENT LIGHT: A pearlescent powder that highlights the cheekbones and brightens the complexion with a celestial glow. Limited Edition.
- DIM LIGHT: A neutral peach beige powder that
It’s time for September favourites! And some of the products you see over, and over again, but I just can’t help it, as I love them very much.
You know how much I love my blushes. But if I could keep only one – that’d probably be BECCA’s Cream Blush in Amaryllis. That says it all, and the photo shows how much I love it.
When I need a very long lasting blush which I can also use on the lips (and it’s a must have for bridal makeup) - BECCA got it covered, too. Their Beach Tints are spot on! I have been loving in Grapefruit shade a lot.
I am not a powder person at all, but I have been experimenting with Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Flawless face Powder Precious Velvet in Piano Forte a lot lately and love the results, it’s a weightless product which gives a beautiful and natural polished finish.

I am currently away for two weeks, finally not for work, I can spend time with my family & friends and relax. I did not want to take a lot of makeup with me (mostly because I have too many other things), and since a lot of you are always asking what products I take with me (and I love similar posts myself), I thought I’d show you.
So here are very few products that I’ve packed for my personal use:
I don’t like taking full bottles of perfumes, so I haveRead More
Believe it or not, but it actually took me hours and hours to complete this list, as I had to think carefully about what products I really want or what products I actually need.
This is not really a wish list, but more of a shopping list of the products that I plan to buy in the near future. Of course, I could add more, but I’ve decided to be very strict with myself so every item got on the list after a lot of consideration and is very covetable…
So here is the list!
1. Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette, £26
I have almost finished my Benefit eye pencil and I am definitely getting an Hourglass one next.
2. Matte Eye Shadows Palette
I can’t decide if I should get the Too Faced Matte Eye Shadow Collection (£24.57 from Beauty Bay) or theBalm Meet Matte ($42 from the brand’s website, but they are in the process of creating a European shop, as well). I actually really love the eye shadow quality from both brands: Too Faced Natural Eye Palette Review and Swatches, theBalm Nude Tude Eye Shadows Palette Review and Swatches and the Balm Shady Lady Palette Vol.2 Review and Swatches so that’s a hard one. I only wish Too Faced palette weren’t so bulky. Maybe I should get both?!
3. Cream Blusher
That is probably the last thing that I need, considering how many I have but I’ve decided that I can get one, as a treat for myself. After a lot of consideration, I’ve chosen Stila’s Stila Convertible Colour (I actually can’t believe that I still haven’t tried it!) I think I’ll get Rose or Lillium (£15.12 from Beauty Bay)
Now this is the category of the products that I need. There are a lot of skincare products that I want and the list is endless but theseRead More
