MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

Since my post about pink blushers got so many views, I’ve decided to write one about reddish ones, too. Do let me know, if you’d like me to choose 5 corals/peaches and berries/plums…

Red(ish) Blushers Hourglass, Clarins, Benefit, Max Factor and MeMeMe

So here is what I’ve picked:

Hourglass Aura Cheek Tint in Flush (review and swatches)

I think that Flush is a perfect name for this sheer water-based blusher, it gives the most natural and beautiful effect.  Cheek Tint is easy to blend, plus it has a nice staying power.

Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush in 18 Soft Cardinal (review and swatches)

This is probably my personal favourite! It is a gorgeous cream blusher with “wet & glossy” texture, it doesn’t enhance any dry patches and looks like a second skin, I use it

Imagine if you had to pick only one makeup product you could use before going out (doesn’t really matter where). What would you chose and why?

I know that most people would answer concealer  and a lot of would choose mascara.

But, as for myself, the choice would be obvious – dark brown eye pencil.

Why?

As long as my eyes are defined, everything else is fine. Well, almost… But smudged dark brown eye pencil is a must have for me.

I have picked my

I was away for ten days visiting my family and friends and I did not use Internet or my phone 95% of the time. It was the best decision ever, as I could truly enjoy the holidays and now I am back to work/blog/life well rested and motivated.

I was catching up on some blogs  I follow and loved reading “The Best of 2012″ features, I should definitely post it myself. But in the meanwhile, here are the makeup products I had with me, and some of them are my all time favourites actually.

Face

Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20 which I took in a small pot helped my skin to look flawless,  I’ve also had my trusted Touche  Eclat  by YSL with me, as well, as Jouer’s Age Repairing Concealer in 3 Cameo.

BECCA’s  Cream Blush in Amaryllis is my all time favourite, so I had to have it to  bring the “life” to my face. Benefit’s High Beam in mini size also helped a lot.

Sienna X’s  Cream To Powder Bronzer & Illuminator is a product I haven’t featured before but I do like it a lot and will definitely post about it soon.

Eyes

First of all, I had my Benefit’s eye brow pencil, as I am never without it. Anastasia’s Genius Top Coat and three of my all time favourite eye shadows: Rouge Bunny Rouge Long Lasting Eye Shadow in Bejewelled Skylark, Daniel Sandler Polychromatic Eyeshadow in Lava and

I am in love with Daniel Sandler’s  new makeup collection for AW 2012 called Escape to Hollywood. I think this is my favourite one so far! I love all Daniel’s products, but some of them adore…

Like this Polychromatic Eyeshadow  in  Lava (£10.25).

Here are all the products from the new collection but I want to tell you about Lava  in details today, as, believe it or not, this is the most exciting makeup product of the month for me!

The texture and the pigmentation are fantastic!  Everything you want an eye shadow to be, it ticks all the boxes for me: easy to apply and blend, soft buttery texture and great staying power. However, the most exciting part is the colour!

It is very unique and complex – a  mix of dark chocolate and red, at least this is how I would describe it, satin finish. I have been wearing this eye shadow every single day since I have got it (thanks, Daniel) and have bit a bit obsessed.

Here is a comparison of it and some other eye shadows:

Urban Decay Heat eye shadow (I think it was discontinued), Illamasqua  Pure

Favourite Makeup of 2011: Eye Products

I just love reading the posts and watching videos about favourite products of the year! So, as promised, here is a list of mine.

This year I’ve decided to choose only the most favourite products! I will not post products in ‘each nomination’, just those that really stood out to me.

So here is part one – eye products.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Long Lasting Eye Shadow in Bejewelled Skylark

Definitely my favourite eye shadows of 2011!  Soft, pigmented, long-lasting, easy-to-work-with; the colour is gorgeous, I love such shades for an every day look. I found myself reaching for this product over, and over again. You can read full review with swatches here.

RBR are releasing some new shades of their eye shadows and I can’t wait to see them!

Illamasqua Pure Pigment in Berber

This pigment is one of my favourite Illamasqua products ever! I was extremely excited when it launched, the colour is really beautiful, unique, not boring but totally wearable.  Not only the colour is amazing, the quality is supreme, too.  Read more here.
