I love writing Monthly Beauty Favourites posts, they make me analyse what products I used the most, and loved the best. I am also always happy when you find a good product through my recommendations
Not gonna lie, October was a rough month for me, a lot of stress and lack of sleep. Most of the time I don’t bother with a good base that much, but this month I was constantly “rocking” dark circles, horrible skin-tone and even some breakouts. I just looked very tired in general.
So to imitate the “I-am-doing-great-thanks” skin I was using my favourite Pearl Shimmering Skin Perfector by BECCA all over the face as a base to give me some glow. Since I have very dry skin, it did not look greasy or shiny on me, in fact, I loved the effect.
Then I followed with Clarins’ Tinted Moisturizer, which is one of my favourite products for face, ever. Read the review to find out why it is that special.
If you read this post, you probably know that I have been ignoring the blushers lately. So, of course I had to includeRead More
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
I love my luxury beauty products! I perfectly understand, that is not a necessity but an indulgent, and also I get that not everyone wants to spend that much on a makeup product. In fact, I often get asked about the affordable products that I would recommend.
So I’ve decided to feature five products that I’ve been really loving lately. I could, of course, add more, but these are the best for me, now.
Max Factor Excess Volume Extreme Impact Mascara (review)
I use this mascara daily now! It is ultra black and glossy and gives great volumizing effect, exactly what I love. For me it’s “go big, or go home” when it comes to mascara.
NYX Taupe Blush (review and swatches)
Another product that I use almost daily. It blends nicely into the skin and gives a natural sculpting effect, nothing muddy or orange.
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR inRead 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
