If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen this photo, and my promise of the feature. So here it is…
Actually, believe it or not, but usually I don’t care about dark circles (on myself, not when I am doing someone’s makeup), unless they really look that bad. But when I do want to look flawless, here is what I do.
First of all, I use a good eye cream, for me it has to be a moisturizing balm, as I have very dry skin. I love Clarins Special Eye Contour Balm Dry Skin (review) and FOM London Revitalising Eye Care Balm (read about it), I leave it for some time while I am getting ready, and afterwards the following products are being used:

It seems like every year makeup brands are bringing their seasonal collections earlier than the year before. Believe it or not, but there are quite a few Christmas collections already available.
For example, you can get hold of some products from the YSL’s Wildly Gold makeup collection for Winter from Sephora.
This is the collection for leopard print lovers with gold packaging and black, leopard inspired, motives.
The items that are can be purchased are:Read More
It’s monthly favourites time!
This month it was all about beautiful skin for me. The mix of Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm (review) and Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches) was my dream combo. It made the skin smooth, radiant and youthful. And I mean it. I guess the fact that recently several (!) people thought that I am 19-20 speaks for itself. Plus you could definitely see the “real skin” underneath, no cakey thick masks which are even worse than bad skin tone itself, in my opinion.
Since I wanted to keep things on the light-to-medium side -YSL Touche Eclat (review and swatches) was my best friend, as well. For me it is a perfect light reflecting product for under the eye area, you get great, long-lasting results, also Touche Eclat doesn’t enhance the under eye lines.
August was definitely the month ofRead More

Summer is like the best season to pick up 5 colours coral/orange shades, right? So here we go…
YSL 4 Audacious Orange (review and swatches)
It is my personal favourite true orange. It is like a sunshine in a jar, instantly brightens the face and I love the fact that you it doesn’t have reddish/pinkish undertones, it is a true orange. The texture is cream-to-powder and blends nicely into the skin. Plus this also wins for the most luxurious packaging.
Jouer Petal (review and swatches)
I have to admit that I did not like this cheeks and lips tint that much at first, but now I do. Although it is described as soft rose pink on the official website, I still decided to include it in this selection. Maybe because it’s like a soft peachy pink to me. The texture is sheer and not heavy.
Available from Cult Beauty.
