It took me some time to realize that eye brows are very important. I did over-pluck mine, like a lot of people back in the 90′s, but luckily they grew back! Plus I never really did anything with them…
This Tuesday I went out with only one makeup product on my face – eye brow pencil (I’ve also curled my lashes), and I was happy with the way I looked. In fact, when I was visiting my family this is the look I’d rock most of the days. They say eyebrows frame the face; and the is spot on! I personally think good brows make a huge difference.
This is why I though I’d share some of the products that I love using on my myself, and on others.
Shavata Double Ended Eyebrow Pencil (review and swatches)
I have to start with a product that is probably my personal favourite! I always sharpen it really well so that it creates a precise line which never looks drawn in; but I never drag it on and do small strokes to feel in any gaps and make to brows more defined. This shade really suits my cool-toned brows, the texture is soft and it stays on for the whole day. It is a total winner, and I highly recommend.
You can buy Shavata from Feel Unique

The collection is all about Marge, obviously, but I wish they also had some Maggie (and Lisa) inspired pieces, too. I am a huge fan, I even have some things, not clothes, with Maggie prints on them. Yes, at my age.
There will be ten products in this release from lip glosses and eye shadows to blush andRead More
As you already know, there are tonnes of new foundations coming out our way for AW season, so I thought I’d share about my personal new love, base-wise. Buxom Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation.
I’ve got a sample with a Sephora purchase several months ago, and totally forgot about it, until recently when I threw in some samples to try while I was visiting my family.
Before I start, I have to mention that now I have a tan (plus fake tan on top to make my skin even more “sun kissed”), and I really love experimenting with my makeup, as I can now wear different shades and colours, which usually don’t suit my skin tone.
The shade that I have is the fifth (out of ten) in the line which is Meet Me Latte ( described as “neutral beige for medium skin tones”) which is still a bit dark for me but I can make it work.
Now, the foundation is absolutely amazing! As the name suggests, it is weightless, I don’t feel it on the face, at all. It is like a hydrating tinted moisturizer. I also like that it lasts all day on me, doesn’t melt or look greasy, and I have tested it in very hot climate. But please keep in mind that I have very dry skin.
My second favourite thing is the fact that you get some serious glow! It is not shiny or glittery, but just aRead More

I had a chance to try two products from the Organic Surge; I have recently shared my impression about their body wash, and today I want to tell you about the Eye Gel.
I personally am a big believer in a good eye product, and always use an eye cream. I have dry skin, so I prefer rich and moisturizing textures. But since such formulas can be too heavy for summer, it’s all about the eye gels now.
This particular eye gel is promised to reduce puffiness and rejunevate skintone; it is enriched with aloe vera and green tea. Luckily, I do notRead More
