My personal lipstick drawer is getting out of control. But I keep using the same products over, and over again. So last week I’ve decided to plan my “weekday lipstick wardrobe” in advance. Here are the five products I’ve chosen:
BECCA Ultimate Matte Lip Colour in Eloise (review and lip swatches)
This is the lightest shade of all and the only matte formula from the selection. Eloise is a beautiful baby pink that suits any look, just make sure that your lips are in a great condition, as otherwise it may enhance the dry patches.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick Succulence of Dew in Murmurings (review and swatches)
I have been loving this lipstick recently, it feels extremely comfortable on the lips, hydrating and moisturizing. Plus it givesRead More
Never underestimate the power of a good base! Today I want to show you a really great one - Instant Light Eye Perfecting by Clarins.
Why do I like it?
As the name suggests, it instantly evens out the eye lids. And I truly appreciated the effect when I was doing the makeup on a client who had really a lot of blue veins showing through. This products created a perfect canvas to begin the work with.

You know how much I adore plum/berry lips and nails but seeing that everywhere now makes me want to wear something different. And when I saw the promo image for the new Collistar campaign I just fell in love with it.

If you follow me on Pinterest, you’ve probably already noticed that I find Italian women absolutely gorgeous. Monica, Cristina, Mariacarla, Bianca, to name just a few of my favourites…
I have found a tutorial on Collistar’s channel where you can see all the products in action. And, did I mention thatRead More
If you are not a fan of the traditional Christmas collections with red, gold and everything glam, you may love the newest offering from Givenchy.
Their Folie de Noirs collection is dark and mysterious. I would even call it gothic! Definitely my favourite collection from the brand in a while – everything looks gorgeous, and there is nothing I wouldn’t wear.
The star of the collection is the Le Prismissime Yeux Noirs En Folie, £40. 50. You get nine shimmering shades which come in a compact with a star on top.
There are two other products for the eyes – black shimmering eye shadows Ombre Couture Noir Sequin (£18) and a midnight blue mascara Phenomen’eyes Bleu Folie (£23).
Besides the products for the eyes, there are two nail polishesRead More
