I get a lot of requests for more personal posts and for more photos of myself…
Since I was away for two weeks (Yes, this is why I wasn’t that active on Makeup4all’s social media accounts, I just did not have time) in Hungary to attended several seminars and studies ( nothing to do with beauty; but what I do in life, FYI) I’ve decided to try.
I thought that I’d show you a photo of the makeup that I took with me first. It is a lot more than any personal would need for two weeks. But to justify myself a) I wanted to have options b) people often ask me for tips and mini-makeovers when they find out that I also do makeup in my free time.
Although I was always very tired, as I did have an intense program, spent more money than I should have, managed to learn just about five Hungarian words, I absolutely loved my experience. Not only I’ve had a very productive time, I also met some amazing people, and somehow managed to find more time for sports, such as running and swimming, than I have at home. Plus I did see quite a few beautiful places in the country…
My top three places/things would have to be:Read More
If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I am currently away for the second week. Unfortunately, I am busy from dusk till dawn but I do appreciate the productive working time.
Here is a sneak preview of what I’ve packed makeup and beauty wise with me. I was very strict with myself, and limited it all to one (no7 Boots) travel makeup bag.
Here is what makeup I had with me. All products from my current top 5 luxury makeup favourites post, a lot of Rouge Bunny Rouge products, as I plan to write a feature for the brand soon, three blushes (I ended up using only tarte) and three lip shades, inducing my Tom Ford lipstick.
As for skincare, this isRead More
Can you believe that today is the first of May? Last month of Spring, time flies…
New month = new monthly favouries. And I really love all the products below.
Makeup wise, I had pretty much the same favourites, as in March: , RBR eye shadows in Solstice Halcyon, Marc Jacobs’ Lola nail polish, NYX’s Taupe, Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream and Clarins’ gloss.
This is why this time I want to tell you about some other products:
This month I just have to mention two brushes. First of all, I’ve been using a “classic” flat foundation brush. I usually apply bases with my fingers or kabuki Sigma brushes but I’ve decided to start using those original foundation brushes again. So, I’ve been loving this one from Lancome. I still remember how much I wanted to buy that set, my friend bought it for me in the States. And I like the results and the finish it creates.
My other brush hero is Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Face Contour Brush 012. This is a brilliant tool for contouring, more details coming soon.

It is time for March beauty favourites, and this month I have discovered some new amazing products and re-discoverer some products I’ve been loving for years.
Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise Cologne
I have finally picked up a second bottle of this spicy and warm scent, which is among my all-time favourites. I like that it is relatively simple, but not boring. Vanilla & Anise is not extremely mainstream, and I don’t meet hundreds of people smelling the same. I better write a proper feature about it soon.
Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors (review and swatches)
I could be “the face” for these glosses What do you think, Clarins? First of all I adore these balms and I always have them around. But also I have converted so many people to them (it’s like a sect now). Yes, I even got e-mails from people telling me that they’ve discovered this gloss thanks to my numerous raves and now love it, too. And are you a fan already?
As for the new products…
Josie Maran 100% Pure Agran Oil (review)
This was myRead More
It’s time for the monthly favourites! And I think, next time I will be doing 2013 favourites, so I better start planning it soon. Also, I can’t wait for the holidays, as I have a lot of plans.
Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in 10 Noir (review)
I still think that it is one of the best mascaras in the World! It makes even my not-so-impressive lashes look fantastic, adds tonnes of volume and is ultra black. I have a mini size but I am so getting a regular one soon!
BECCA Luminous Skin Colour Ultra-Sheer Foundation
I better write a review about this wonderful product soon. As the name suggests, it gives a very sheer coverage and is undetectable on the skin. With a little bit of concealer where you need it – you can get a perfect complexion which looks very natural.
Clarins Instant Concealer (review)
As I’ve already said, it instantly brightens up the way you look, feels light and is pretty long-lasting.
Ellis Faas Hot Lips L406 Rose Violet (review)
My latest love in terms of lip products. I have been wearing it non-stop, as it applies smoothly, has aRead More
