Tag: Valentines Day
I am very happy to share that today Makeup4all turns 9, it is as if I wrote this feature about it turning 5 yesterday. I honestly can’t believe it. So much has changed since that time. Considering that it is also Valentine’s Day, I though I would share some features that are appropriate for the occasion. And for me VDay means red and roses, not like any other day is different.
Everything You Need To Know About Red Lipstick (here). I have written so many articles about red lipsticks over the years, and that is just a round up. And if you are wondering about my current favoruite red – that is this one.
And let’s not forget about the red Nail Polishes (here). Especially about
Today is a very special day! First of all, it’s Valentine’s Day, and, for the first time ever, I am very excited about it! The reason? Makeup4all turns 5 today, and I am very happy and proud.
So, I thought today I’d share some random facts about the website.
Roses from Pinterest and the lip print shirt is a lill’ something I’ve bought for myself, as a present.
How And Why It All Started
I often get asked why did I even start this all. It is hard to believe but… it was my boyfriend’s idea! Yes, really. I was always a bit obsessed with all things beauty, in fact, I am a trained Make-Up Artist, and would always go on, and on about it all. That’s why he suggested that I’d start writing my thoughts on-line.
I did not read any beauty websites or blogs, and did not even know that they existed or were a thing. At first I did not really know how or what I should do, but I kind of enjoyed it, and decided to keep on going. Well, I am so happy I did.
Most Exciting Moments
I remember I would spend almost all of
Today is a huge day for me, as Makeup4all turns FOUR!!!!
It’s hard for me to believe it, as I usually don’t think I ever had a hobby for such a long time. If fact, this hobby is now a huge part of my life.
I really wanted to have a little thank you giveaway but things were a little hectic for me both work wise and I had to solve some other things, so I am very sorry about that. But I promise to treat you to something nice soon 😉
Oh and by the way, Happy Vday. Although I am not the one who celebrates it, the fact that “my baby” is four today makes me LOVE 14th of February!
I hope you have planned something lovely for this evening . And thank you very much for all the support, it means a lot.
Like it or not, but Valentine’s Day is almost here and it seems that almost every girl I know is obsessed with finding a nice red lipsticks. I can’t even tell you how many times during the last several weeks I’ve been asked about the best red lipstick, and how to wear it…
Plus so many brands have realised mini collections with red lipsticks and nail polishes. It seems that red is everywhere. Have you seen this cover of Vogue UK for March?I love red but I wish they used the other colour for the background as it is a bit too red even for me…
My friends are obsessing about the red lipstick because they actually want their husbands/boyfriends to like it. But do men like red lips? I was really curious to find it out so was asking everyone I could and asked you on Twitter and Facebook to help me out. So here are some of the responses that I’ve got:
