Another day, another Face Of The Day.
I am wearing Clarins Extra-Comfort Foundation and Instant Concealer which I will definitely review in the future. But so far I really like both. This is a great foundation for dry skin, it gives a dewy finish and feels comfortable and non-drying. As for concealer, it doesn’t feel heavy or cakey but, at the same time, gives a nice coverage.Read More
My Mum doesn’t wear makeup. Only lipstick sometimes. But recently she decided to change her hair style, got some new clothes and asked me if I could select some makeup for her.
Wow! I definitely approve
She has light skin, dark hair and eyes, so here are the basics that I have chosen. She doesn’t need that many products simply because she won’t even use them – so, knowing her taste and requirements, here is what I’ve chosen:
I am not yet 100% sure about the foundation that will suit her the best. So far she liked this Bourjois one (shown on the photo). But if you have suggestions for a lady around 50 with dry skin, feel free to share. And thanks to everyone on Twitter for their recommendations!
Blush is a must have in a makeup bag of any girl, in my opinion, as it instantly changes the appearance. This Max Factor blush is one of my personal favourites and I know that it will look great on her, too. Will have to pick up another one soon, as I am giving away my personal one.

I really love the look of these Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee blushers.
The product is described as a “coconut water-infused (50%) cheek gelée with up to 14 hours of color and hydration”. It is supposed to be a hybrid formula of a cream blush and a gel stain.
Sounds interesting and innovative! And I would really love to try. You can get them fromRead More
I have Stila’s Convertible Color on my wish list and I did not get it yet, as I can’t decide which shade to choose. But looks like I have the answer now.
The brand recently launched two palettes with three shades in each. Each palette includes two best-sellers and one Limited Edition shades.
Peony, Lillium & Cherry Blossom (limited-edition shade)
I’ve stayed most of the Saturday at home as I had guests so wanted to keep it very simple. Here are the products I wore.
Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Tinted Moisturiser Sketches on Water is my latest obsession. It is perfect for winter, it doesn’t enhance any dryness and looks great even on the weather beaten, dehydrated skin! Gives a very natural coverage and people won’t be able to tell that it’s not just your skin. The coverage is enough for me but you may want to use concealer locally. I use shade Adansonia but you can see my swatches of all shades here.
The brand’s Blush Wand in Rubens is a relatively new product for me but so far I am loving it.
