Spring Makeup: Corals & Peaches

Spring is here, so is the sunshine! And with such weather girls usually want to add some fresh and bright colours to their face.  And although I personally love cool tones more (on myself), corals and peaches are the in favour of most people.

In fact, even I am wearing some of those shades today. But nothing to neon and in-your-face, so it will suit most people.

To be precise:  Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in #5, a gorgeous peach with golden shimmer on my eyes! Yes, really, I think it looks stunning on the eyes but you could wear it on the cheek and lips, too. It’s such a universal product.

And Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 05 Candy Shimmer  which gives just the right amount of colour and brings some “life” to the face.

I am using a mix of blushers today but you could go for  Jouer Cosmetics Cheek & Lip Tint in Petal to keep up with the whole theme.

It is fun experimenting with

April 2013 Beauty Wish List: Makeup, Skincare and Hair Care

Believe it or not, but it actually took me hours and hours to complete this list, as I had to think carefully about what products I really want or what products I actually need.

This is not really a wish list, but more of a shopping list of the products that I plan to buy in the near future. Of course, I could add more, but I’ve decided to be very strict with myself so every item got on the list after a lot of consideration and is very covetable…

So here  is the list!

Makeup

1. Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette, £26

I have almost finished my Benefit eye pencil and I am definitely getting an Hourglass one next.

2. Matte Eye Shadows Palette

I can’t decide if I should get the Too Faced Matte Eye Shadow Collection (£24.57 from Beauty Bay) or theBalm Meet Matte ($42 from the brand’s website, but they are in the process of creating a European shop, as well).   I actually really love the eye shadow quality from both brands: Too Faced Natural Eye Palette Review and Swatches, theBalm Nude Tude Eye Shadows Palette Review and Swatches and the Balm Shady Lady Palette Vol.2 Review and Swatches so that’s a hard one.  I only wish Too Faced palette weren’t so bulky. Maybe I should get both?!

3. Cream Blusher

That is probably the last thing that I need, considering how many I have but I’ve decided that I can get one, as a treat for myself. After a lot of consideration, I’ve chosen Stila’s Stila Convertible Colour (I actually can’t believe that I still haven’t tried it!) I think I’ll get Rose or Lillium (£15.12 from Beauty Bay)

Skincare

Now this is the category of the products that I need. There are a lot of skincare products that I want  and the list is endless but these

What’s Inside My Makeup Bag? Five Products To Create The Look

 

So what’s inside my makeup bag?  If I had a task to create the look with only five products, here is what I’d use. The products that I like are changing constantly so here are those that I am enjoying at the moment.

So the products are:

Daniel Sandler’s Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer (review)

Ok, yes, that is a bit cheating as it is one-in-two product… It’s a perfect foundation for my dry skin, it evens out the skin tone and gives the  complexion a dewy glow, exactly what I am looking for!

Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush

I have been loving the shade 09 Soft Murano a lot lately, in fact, I have been using it almost every single day. It is a high quality product for an affordable price plus the colour is very flattering!

Ellis Faas Mascara

This  has been my mascara of choice lately. It gives a nice length, separates the lashes, lasts for the long time, without fading, smudging or flaking. It even survives an

If You Could Use Only 3 Makeup Products

I want to know: If you could use only 3 makeup products for your look what would you choose?

I would go for:
  • Concealer
  • Dark cream shadows
  • Cream blush


You can see:

Make Up For Ever 5 Camouflage Cream Palette – No. 1. I’ve bought this palette  a long time ago and I think it’s great for covering almost everything but it’s quite heavy to use under the eyes.

Benefit’s creaseless cream shadows in Busy Signal. Absolutely

Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Rude. Review & Cheek Swatches

Today I would like to tell you about my favourite product by Illamasqua – their Cream Blusher in Rude.  What is written about:

Cream Blusher, £16.00 ($23 in the US)

Tease, hypnotise, use to effect. Highlight your cheekbones, shape your face, build and blend with fingers or a brush to create the colour intensity you desire. Use over foundation for impact, or under for a captivating glow. However you apply it, be daring.

This is how the blush looks like

So what do I like about it so much? Absolutely everything! All Illamasqua products have fabulous design.  The colour (I have Rude) is very pigmented & you’ll need just a tiny amount of it, so this blush would last you forever. It’s very easy to blend this blush and it looks amazing on all skin types. I really like how it smells ;). But what is the most important – the blush stays on for a very long time! And I have what to compare with.

The conclusion? This is my favourite product by Illamasqua and I would highly recommend you to try it! Check out how it looks like on the cheeks
