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)
Is it possible not to fall in love with this new collection from OPI! Just look at those stunning images. Some of them are very Frejya-esque. Beautiful blonde with long braided hair and piercing icy blue eyes in cool-toned clothes and stunning silver jewelry…I’ve got a bit carried away, after all I wrote my final work for uni about Scandinavian culture.
Anyway, I am very pleased to see a collection dedicated to Scandinavia, if you did not notice that already.
The shades are:
Can’t a Fjörd Not To, Whatever it takes, get your hands on this extravagantly creamy coral!
Do You Have this Color in Stock-holm?, Stock up! This icy blue-violet is in hot demand!
Going My Way or Norway? No two ways about it… this caramel is delicious!
How Great is Your Dane?, Pass up this cinnamon coffee? You’re barking up the wrong tree!

If you follow me on Instagram you already saw the photo of the tart I made the other day. It was inspired by Liberty London Girl originally but I always make my own variants, and I have tried a lot, and they all were very good.
It is a crowd pleaser, and it is extremely easy to make,easier than pizza.
You’d only need a pre-made puff pastry and the toppings of your choice. I personally went for chicken fillet which I’ve milled in the blender, finally sliced tomatoes, cheese, basil, oregano, parsley, sea salt and all kinds of pepper I had at home. I also did the other one that day withRead More
Remember I did a post about foundations?
Since a lot of you asked for more details, here is the official information about some of them:

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
