Face Of The Day. November 4th 2013

Looks like Face Of the Day is now a more, or less regular feature. Maybe at some point, I will get brave enough to include photos of myself, too. Who knows?! But, as for now, here are the products that I’ve used and my opinion about them.

This look was all about my good ol’ blush love – Chanel Orchid Rose. I used to wear it every single day years ago, so I’ve decided to show it some love today.

I’ve started with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory to get a medium coverage and glowing effect, that way I didn’t even need a highlighter. It’s a great “foundation” for dull Autumn days. I’ve added some YSL’s Touche Eclat under the eyes, to brighten up the area and make me look less tired.

As, I’ve already mentioned, I’ve used Chanel Joues Contraste in Orchid Rose blush, which is a pretty warm-toned shade.  To add even more warmth to the face – I’ve used  YSL’s Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder  in N° 5 Cinnamon Sand.

Face Of The Day.October 28th 2013

Another day, another Face Of The Day.

Face of The Day Clarins banefit ArtDeco NARS Inglot Hourglass ChanelSo what makeup is on my face today?

Face

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.

I’ve added Benefit’s High Beam for some glow and ArtDeco’s Cream Rouge in Creamy Mauve for a

Face Of The Day. September 2013

Today I’ve decided to keep my makeup minimal, as I will spend most of my time (and money, le segh) choosing the items for my home makeover.

So here is the makeup that I’ve used:
Face Of The Day Rouge Bunny Rouge Benefit No7 Ellis Faas AnastsiaAnd there are quite a few Rouge Bunny Rouge products as I am currently working on one feature for them, I will let you know when it’s done, for sure.

Face

I’ve started with the brand’s Aqua Primer, it has a lovely light texture that smooths the face and doesn’t clog the pores. Then I have applied Benefit’s Erase Paste under the eyes which is brilliant for counteracting the blue tones. I have finished off with Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Flawless face Powder Precious Velvet in Piano Forte. It has a medium coverage and feels light on the skin. I don’t usually use powders but am experimenting with some at the moment.

To give myself some glow, I have dabbed Benefit’s High Beam  on the cheek bones, under the brow bone, above the upper lip and on the bridge of the nose.  From

Simple, Office Friendly, Face Of The Day

Today I opted for a very simple and minimal makeup, both in terms of colours and the quantity of products.  Today it’s all about work and I am not going out anywhere afterwards, so  I was not in the mood for any experiments, and , quite frankly, did not have time.

Face

I’ve used Rouge Bunny Rouge Home Time Defying Foundation Skin Sanctuary which I promise to review soon. I totally forgot that I had the samples of it, the post is already in the process. I then added some Benefit’s Dandelion  to brighten up the complexion  and BECCA’s Beach Tint in Raspberry as a pop of colour on the cheeks and on top of the lip balm.

 Eyes

I have used Benefit’s powder eye shadows in Leggy and Dandy Brandy which are very soft and smooth, and blend beautifully. Lighter shade all over the lead and darker shade for definition. I have also lined the eyes with a black (and not brown, shocker!)  Clarins Crayon Khol, smudged it

Face Of The Day: Coral & Peach

I have been shopping my stash lately, re-discovering a lot of amazing products that I have and have been experimenting  with my makeup quite a lot, too.

I usually go for berry or cool toned shades but lately I have been going for coral/orange quite a lot actually.

Here are the products  that I have used today…

Face

I have started with a foundation that is a bit darker and warmer than my skin tone but still looks natural and gives a beautiful glowing finish - Daniel Sandler’s Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer in Beige.

Then added a golden highlighter, Jouer Highlighter in Champagne andwarmed up the complexion  with a beautiful Trish McEvoy’s  Golden Bronzer.

The main thing about this look was the vibrant coral blush, Benefit ChaCha Tint which instantly brightened up everything.  And since I kept the rest of makeup pretty much neutral – it was a  great pop of colour.

Eyes

I have used my trusted
