Bobbi Brown Almost Bare Collection Tinted Moisturizers for Summer 2011

Spring/Summer is a great time for tinted moisturizers so Bobbi Brown released two brand new products just in time. By the way, if you don’t know the brand also has a relatively new concealer.

There is also a new collection called Almost Bare for summer 2011.

So here is the promo information so far and the prices for the US as I don’t know UK or EU prices just yet.

What Makeup Look Kate Middleton Will Wear for Her (the Royal) Wedding?

These days there are two groups of people: those who are excited about the Royal Wedding and those who can’t stand all the buzz surrounding it.  I am in the first group, as you can guess, because what is there not to like about it? After all, Royal Wedding is not something that happens everyday.

But while most people want to see Kate’s dress, I personally  can’t wait to see her makeup and I  would REALLY like to know what products were used and who did it. Because, yes, it’s a great honour to do the makeup for such an occasion, and I personally can’t think of anything more special than this!

On the photo: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer, Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Radiant Touch, La Mer The Powder, Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (click to enlarge).

And just imagine what a great promotion it will be for the brands which  primer/foundation/concealer/powder will be used! And I  already can see a lot of   young (and young at heart 😉 ) girls getting the “Kate’s Big Day” lipstick/lip gloss.

Anyway, what products do you think will be used on Kate? Do you know the name of the make-up artist? Will it influence you in any way?

I have to say that it will influence me! Why? Because I am sure that the products that will be chosen = the best quality on the market. After all it is for the wedding. The. Royal. Wedding.

By the way, in general I like Kate’s makeup but I think sometimes the eye liner looks a bit too harsh but that is only my opinion of course.

Hourglass Cosmetics Bronzed Summer Look With Vol.6 Eye Palette

I am back home at last and I have to say that it was the most amazing trip ever. I was so happy to see my friends and family! I hope you had a lovely  Easter, too.

A lot of readers have been asking me about the Hourglass Cosmetics Vol.6 Eye palette so here is the preview of this beauty! It will be available in August exclusive to Barney’s as a part of the Fall collection but I am not sure about the price yet.

It looks like a prefect basic eye palette. By the way, if you want to see this palette, as well as the new Script eye liner, in action  make sure that you watch the video where the amazing Artistic Director of Hourglass and a celebrity Make-up Artist Gina Brooke shows how to create  a beautiful bronzed summer look.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, dear readers! I hope you are having a wonderful day with your family today as I am. I am miles away with my grandmother as you read this and am most likely really happy!

For me Easter is not about chocolate eggs or rabbits but since I couldn’t find a picture that I would like, here you go…
