After reading so many raves about the Healthy Mix foundation I’ve decided to get it myself. And you know what?

I have to agree with those who are impressed with this product.

It comes in a pretty packaging with a pump which make the application easy and hygienic.

The first thing that you notice is the amazing fruity smell as this foundation includes: apricot for radiance, melon for  hydration, apple for antioxidant, ginger for energy. But don’t worry, it disappears pretty soon, although I personally wish it would stay for a longer time.

What about the finish and the coverage?

It gives a medium coverage and semi-matte finish. I really like the coverage but I wish the finish was a bit more dewy although you can always mix it with the primer which gives a dewy finish, something like Satin Primer by Illamasqua which I love.

I personally

I liked everything from Ellis Faas that I’ve tried so far but their blush is probably the best product for me!

I have a shade S302 which is a beautiful peachy pink. As all the EF products it is in this beautiful futuristic tube.


So why do I like it so much?

  • S302  looks beautiful on a lot of skin tones.
  • This blush blends really well and it looks natural on the skin, the texture is amazing – light and not greasy.
  • This is the most long lasting blush that I’ve tried so far. Honestly, it stays on for the whole day  on,  although

After browsing the photos of Golden Globes for about 2 hours like I had nothing else to do some time I can’t say that I’ve managed to pick my favourites but I’ve picked some of those that I liked.

Lucky for us I’ve got some how-tos in my inbox plus some brands shared the details on the official pages. So of course I have to tell you how to create the looks of our (of mine at least) favourite Mad Men girls: January Jones and Christina Hendricks. And we will also take a look at Elizabeth Moss(Peggy).

January Jones

Make-up Artist Rachel Goodwin

Beauty Inspiration:

“January’s look was all about strength – there was nothing demure about it! I wanted to go for a super strong brow, and a high gloss red lip. 90’s supermodel meets old Hollywood glamour!”

How To Create the Look:

Complexion:

“The makeup was simple with two strong elements. I prepped her skin with CHANEL Sublimage Concentrate.

I then sculpted her cheeks with CHANEL Bronzing Makeup Base.

Eyes

On her lids, I used a wash of champagne coloured shadow, CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Liberty.

I created a strong, bold defined brow with the CHANEL Perfect Brows palette, and applied two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir.

Lips

Finally, I knew I wanted to go for a glossy red lip as opposed to a matte red, to keep the look fresh and not too retro.

I used an amazing red gloss, CHANEL Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Excess, to complete January’s strong red carpet look.”

Christina Handricks

I don’t like the top of the dress at least not with such hair style

Make-up Artist Vanessa Scali

Beauty Inspiration:

Valentines Day is almost a month away but, like it or not, some shops already have the hearts and flowers all over and some brands release their Valentines collections.  And it’s the same when it comes to makeup brands. And if I am obviously not a fan of the first I am happy to see an extra makeup collection. I believe you won’t mind an extra makeup collection, too, right?!

We already saw the hot (and red) collection by Illamasqua and now it’s time to look at the feminine (and pink) collection by NARS.

I am not sure if this will be available in the UK or  EU but it is already available in the US for $59 (value is $78).

The set includes:

  • Angelika lip gloss
  • Multiple Stick in cotton-candy pink with flecks of shimmering silver and gold.
  • Schiap nail polish.

I LOVE it!
