Here is a look at my current makeup routine, and we are talking about morning routine, not a special night out or not even the weekend morning when I have time, can relax and all. During the week days, I often do my makeup in a taxi, or even public transport. Yes, I have already learned how to apply the liner on the go. The things I do to sleep those extra 10 minutes.
I always see how people recommend that when you want to save when it comes to beauty products, it should never be a base. Ironically, my foundation is the cheapest product from the selection but it is really lovely. It gives that beautiful sheer dewy finish that is my favourite. Sadly, it seems like it has been discontinued.
And yes, there are no concealers, correctors or powders. To be honest at least 95% of the times I can’t be bothered with a concealer, I know this may sound shocking but I don’t care if I have some darkness under my eyes, in fact I am not a fan of the opposite, when I layer 3 products and it looks way too perfect. Maybe that all sounds weird but this is the way I like it. My skin is dry and the makeup last on me but when I want a powder – I go for this one.
When it comes to eyes – I love my eye makeup. I canRead More
I have been out several times this week with my friends and, although I wanted to look nice, I did not want to spend hours and tones of products on my look.
So here are the items I relied on:
Since it’s winter, my face definitely could get some help in the “glow department”. Hourglass Illusion Tinted Mositurizer was the perfect choice for that. It does add some radiance to the face which looks nice in the evening.
Although I love cool toned face products in winter, I’ve decided to add some warmth this time with Illamasqua’s Allure Powder Blusher and Sienna X’s Cream To Powder Bronzer & Illuminator.
My newest favourite toy for the eyes is Burberry’s Complete Eye Palette in Pink Taupe. I have tried pretty muchRead More
I’m not gonna lie, I am super jealous when I see girls with long, thick lashes…Unfortunately, it is not the case with mine. It could be worse, so I should not complain really.
But there are certain things I can do about it. I have never tried lash extensions for some reason and wearing false lashes every day is not an option, for me at least.
So here are the products that I use to get a make my lashes look decent:
First of all, I curl my lashes with shu uemura lash curlers, they open up the eyes and the curl lasts all day long. It is a great investment.
Then I use a lash primer, currently it’s Urban Decay’s Eyelash Primer Potion, it adds some length and volume without making the lashes look clumpy.
Next step is mascara – black Diorshow New Look orRead More
I remember some time ago I had an idea of counting how much was worth the makeup that I was wearing. And last week, after I saw such post on one of the blog that I like, I though about doing the same thing.
So here is the makeup that I wore on Friday.
Firts of all I’ve used a Mineral Primer by BECCA, £34 (my review here). Then I’ve mixed two foundations – Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect in 71 Abricote Clair,£9.5 with Max Factor Xperience Foundation in 85 Deep Soapstone, £10
I’ve used Chanel Bronze Universel (£26 or £28 I can’t remember) to countorand to add some colour to my face, highlighted with BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl, £33 (review here) and added some BECCA’s Beach Tint in Grapefruit, £19 (review here).

You already read the post about my favourite face products of 2010 and now it’s time for eye products! And, yes, stay tuned for the lip products part!
So let’s start!
My favourite mascara is Lancome Hypnose. I’ve tried so many mascaras (and have so many brand new waiting for me to try them) and although there are so many amazing products for me nothing beats up the Lancome Hypnose so far! Read review here.
Ellis Faas Lights
Not only they look absolutely gorgeous , but they also stay on for hours without creasing, fading or smudging. I am really impressed. Read review here.
Benefit Creaseless Cream Eye Shadows
I just love these eye shadows and I’ve already written about them twice, they are just so good. Brilliant cream eye shadows. I know that several people bought them after reading my post (which makes me happy that people trust my reviews) and loved them, too. Read review here and here.
Yves Saint Laurent Ombres 5 Lumieres
These have been my favourite high-end eye shadows this year, the best quality ever: silky texture, nice pigmentation, beautiful shades. Read review here.
