I get a lot of requests for more personal posts and for more photos of myself…
Since I was away for two weeks (Yes, this is why I wasn’t that active on Makeup4all’s social media accounts, I just did not have time) in Hungary to attended several seminars and studies ( nothing to do with beauty; but what I do in life, FYI) I’ve decided to try.
I thought that I’d show you a photo of the makeup that I took with me first. It is a lot more than any personal would need for two weeks. But to justify myself a) I wanted to have options b) people often ask me for tips and mini-makeovers when they find out that I also do makeup in my free time.
Although I was always very tired, as I did have an intense program, spent more money than I should have, managed to learn just about five Hungarian words, I absolutely loved my experience. Not only I’ve had a very productive time, I also met some amazing people, and somehow managed to find more time for sports, such as running and swimming, than I have at home. Plus I did see quite a few beautiful places in the country…
My top three places/things would have to be:Read More
I know that a lot of readers come to Makeup4all for all things Clarins, so here, as promised, is my guide to Clarins toners. I did a detailed review about each product, so this post will be a brief summery, you can read all the details by clicking the links.
Before we start, I’d like to mention that I have very dry and sensitive skin, and my age group is 26-30.
One-Step Facial Cleanser with Orange Extract (review)
Such an amazing orange scented product which gently cleanses the skin, leaves is super smooth, soft and glowing. A must have here. Will re-purchase in the future. Can I say once again that I love it?!
Clarins Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser with Peach Essential Water (review)
This is a nice product whichRead More
It’s been a while since I did a post about brushes… So, I think, it’s time a for a little update. I’ve decided to show you my most used face brushes whether it’s on myself or when I am doing someone’s makeup.
There are 6 that I absolutely have to have.
Let’s take a look:
Rouge Bunny Rouge Face Contour Brush 012 (Review)
This is my newest brush, and my favourite for contouring. I have quite a few which I’ve collected over the years but they all are forgotten now, since I have this one. It has a perfect shape that goes right under the cheekbones. The bristles are firm but soft, which makes it a perfect contouring brush.
- Can be purchased from Beauty Bay and Beauty Habit.
Japonesque 924 Travel Blush Brush (review)
Japonesque rule the brush world, they are among the best. And their 924 Blush Brush is my favourite face brush that I own from them. It feels incredibly nice and soft on the skin and blends the product nicely. This is my blush brush of choice but I often use it for powder, too, as I am not a big fan of big powder brushes.
Daniel Sandler Blusher Brush (mentioned here)
My hair removal of choice is waxing (maybe I should write a post about it, as quite a few people asked me to). But the downsides of such method are ingrown hairs and bumps which are not sexy, at all.
But there is a solution for that! And that is Tend Skin. What it is? Long story short – this is basically a liquid which contains aspirin and has an anti-inflammatory and calming effect. As the result, there are no more red irritated bumps and pesky ingrown hairs.
Does it work?Read More
I wanted to get a new cleansing milk/toner for the times when I don’t have time to do a “proper” cleanse, so realized that I never got around trying Clarins One-Step Facial Cleanser with Orange Extract.
So, off to the Clarins counter I went. For some reason, the sales assistant (and she is a very lovely girl, and knows me by now, of course) couldn’t understand which product I was talking about, and showed me all the different cleansers.
Why am I telling you that?
- a) the girl told me that I know Clarins products better than she does. Not gonna lie, that was a lot coming from her.
- b) I have realized that I have tried all the cleansers & toners she showed me, so it’d probably be a good thing to make a Clarins toners/cleansers guide. What do you think?
But back to the cleanser itself. It is so good!
Pretty much all Clarins products I’ve tried are brilliant, and this one is not an exception. The cleanserRead More
