While I am done with my Christmas shopping, and the items that I want the most are not with a discount (I shall publish my wish list soon) some of you may find the discount codes useful.

Bridal Beauty: The Products I’ve Used On My Wedding Day

Long time readers will know how I do not really share personal things, however, this month I’ve got married, and I wanted to share the products I’ve used on the big day. Of course, I did my own makeup.

Face

I’ve tried many products and product combos but, in the end, I’ve just decided to use my beloved  Rouge Bunny Rouge SERENE LIGHT Skin Perfector  (here). This is a slightly tinted primer which leaves your skin glowing and luminous. For my very dry skin it is perfect. It is a primer so barely gives any coverage but is great for adding radiance and creating that “healthy” polished look.  I’ve covered all the little imperfections I’ve had with the MAC Pro Concealer and Corrector Palette in Light ( Amazon and Amazon UK) slightly powdered the t-zone  with the Rouge Bunny Rouge Flawless Face Powder Precious Velvet (review). It it the only powder I use, not a fan of powder on myself. I’ve added some Highlighting Liquid Seas of Illumination in Sea Of Tranquility (review) , also by RBR, where I wanted to have more glow.  I’ve chosen a cool-toned highlighter to go well with my cool toned lipstick and nail varnish. To add some warmth to my face I’ve used two of my absolute favourites – theBalm Balm Desert (review) and Daniel Sandler Watercolour in Golden Glow (review). I’ve mentioned both products so many times that I won’t go into much details again, I just bloody love both. And I always use Daniel’s blushers on brides so used my favourite shade on myself, as well.  Besides the old favourites I’ve decided to try a new product for me (used it only twice before) –Trish McEvoy Instant Eye Lift (Nordstrom and Liberty ) and it did not disappoint.  It is a

L’Oreal Professionnel Sensi Balance Shampoo Review

Long story short – L’Oreal Professionnel Sensi Balance Shampoo is one of the best shampoos I have ever used.

Want to find out why? Then keep on reading.

First things first, I love the changes that L’Oreal Professionnel made in the shampoos line recently. I love this beautiful clear blue packaging, and  the scent is very lovely. Like, I literally am a big fan.

The product was developed for dry and irritated scalp.  Sorbitol is the ingredient that is used for soothing  the scalp, and while I did not have any major issues, I did find that

Clarins Graphik Ink Eyeliner Review and Swatches

Since I am wearing an eye liner (almost) every single day, it has to be the best possible product on the market which meets all my expectations.

And Clarins Graphik Ink Eyeliner does.

I honestly cannot think of anything I did not like about this liner. It is ultra black, glossy, glides on like a dream, does not drag the skin. It also stayed on pretty well on me, I did not have any smudges during the the day.

A special shout out to the tip. It is the only type that I use on myself, and it allows both thin and thick application. While I love using  thinner liners  on others,  I  myself have hooded eyes so want my liner to be relatively thick without going over numerous times.  It truly allows any type of lines.

Needless to say I’ve used it up completely.

I am a big fan and would definitely repurchase at some point. When I get bored of trying new ones. Currently I am using byTerry one, and it is also incredible.

The price is £21/$27, and considering that it will last you for a few months, I find it to be a good deal. Clarins is available from Selfridges,HarrodsEscentual.com,  Nordstorm,  Sephora, Bergdorf Goodman.
