Makeup4All Magazine: How It Was Created and FAQS

I’ve got so many comments and questions about the first issue of the on-line magazine Makeup4All that I just have to make this post and tell you about everything. Also I would like to tell you how I got this idea and how did it all come together. But first of all I want to thank you all from thew bottom of my heart for all the lovely comments, e-mails and tweets that I got. You support means so much to me!

Where from did I get the idea and how it all started?

I’ve always wanted to do something special for the blog but didn’t know what. So one day I was chatting with Mr. (yes, he has to listen about my blog, about how much I need a new Chanel lipstick and a new purse etc. ) and he told me: “Well, you waste (I’d say spend) money on magazines so why don’t you make your own?!” I was shocked. Like how can I make my own magazine? So many people work on it: writers, editors, photographers, stylists, designers, make-up artists  etc. How can I make it myself? Are you crazy? But he would never stop. We were talking about it since summer (or even last spring) and this winter I finally gave up. It was a huge challenge. But I love to risk sometimes. I was also curious about the results.

What the process looked like?

Probably the most difficult part was to think about the content. I was brainstorming it for a long time. When I finally had some ideas I was looking for photos and Press Releases. I also wanted to have some tutorials and interviews. So  I contacted people and brands. So many never answered so I would like to thank all of you who did. The idea to make it a Spring issue came later because at first I didn’t know what would be the main topic of this all.

And the Best Nude Lipsticks Is…

The question of this week was: ” What is your favourite nude lipstick?”

And here are the answers that I got from some of you on Twitter and Facebook!

I’ve used the photo of this  MAC lipstick because most of you love nude lipsticks by MAC. If you want to see the details about this shade and see how it looks like on the lips – click here.

And your answers

  • Cherish by MAC with gloss
  • MAC Creme d’Nude
  • Jemma Kidd ‘Belle De Jour and Hug Me from MAC
  • MAC Hug me, Bare and Revlon Mauve It Over
  • L’Oreal made for brunette in shade Sepia/Silk
  • MAC Myth
  • Dior

Choose Only 1 Beauty Brand

Last week I’ve asked my readers on Twitter and Facebook:

“If you could use only 1 beauty brand and get all their products for free what brand would you chose?”

And here are the answers, hope you also find that interesting:

  • Mac of course!
  • MAC
  • Dior!
  • Make Up For Ever of course
  • Estee Lauder
  • I think it would be MAC because they have a huge range of colors available, probably much more than any other brand
  • MAC
  • No doubt Chanel
  • Urban Decay
  • MAC
  • Chanel!
  • If it was just skincare I’d say Elemis; for makeup/skincare/body/nails….Chanel?
  • Flori Roberts
  • MAC is my answer because of the eye shadows & brushes

Looks like MAC is the winner.

And what about you?
