Bridal Beauty: The Products I’ve Used On My Wedding Day

Long time readers will know how I do not really share personal things, however, this month I’ve got married, and I wanted to share the products I’ve used on the big day. Of course, I did my own makeup.

Face

I’ve tried many products and product combos but, in the end, I’ve just decided to use my beloved  Rouge Bunny Rouge SERENE LIGHT Skin Perfector  (here). This is a slightly tinted primer which leaves your skin glowing and luminous. For my very dry skin it is perfect. It is a primer so barely gives any coverage but is great for adding radiance and creating that “healthy” polished look.  I’ve covered all the little imperfections I’ve had with the MAC Pro Concealer and Corrector Palette in Light ( Amazon and Amazon UK) slightly powdered the t-zone  with the Rouge Bunny Rouge Flawless Face Powder Precious Velvet (review). It it the only powder I use, not a fan of powder on myself. I’ve added some Highlighting Liquid Seas of Illumination in Sea Of Tranquility (review) , also by RBR, where I wanted to have more glow.  I’ve chosen a cool-toned highlighter to go well with my cool toned lipstick and nail varnish. To add some warmth to my face I’ve used two of my absolute favourites – theBalm Balm Desert (review) and Daniel Sandler Watercolour in Golden Glow (review). I’ve mentioned both products so many times that I won’t go into much details again, I just bloody love both. And I always use Daniel’s blushers on brides so used my favourite shade on myself, as well.  Besides the old favourites I’ve decided to try a new product for me (used it only twice before) –Trish McEvoy Instant Eye Lift (Nordstrom and Liberty ) and it did not disappoint.  It is a

My Makeup Bag: June 2013

I am currently away for two weeks, finally not for work, I can spend time with my family &  friends and relax. I did not want to take a lot of makeup with me (mostly because I have too many other things), and since a lot of you are always asking what products I take with me (and I love similar posts myself), I thought I’d show you.

Makeup June Makeup4all

So here are very few products that I’ve packed for my personal use:

For face I have Clarins BB cream, YSL bronzer and BECCA’s Amaryllis blush.

For the eyes I’ve chosen my Lancome’s brown pencil, shu umura’s eye lash curlers, Ellis Faas mascara and what is left of my Benefit’s eye brow pencil.

As for lips, there are three products – L’Occitane’s lip balm, Clarins’ Instant Lip Perfector (not shown) and a juicy YSL’s Volupte Sheer Candy in 04 Succulent Pomegranate.

I don’t like taking full bottles of perfumes, so I have

Favourite Makeup Products of 2018

As promised, here is a feature about my favourite makeup  of 2018. It was supposed to be makeup and beauty but I am already almost on 1200 words so had to divide the feature into 2 parts. I’ve chosen the products that I love and used the most hence some of them may look a bit grubby but it does show that they are true favourites.

And by the way, you can also check out my favourite products of 2017,  2016 and 2015

Base

Rouge Bunny Rouge SERENE LIGHT Skin Perfector  (here). This is a slightly tinted primer which leaves your skin glowing and luminous. For my very dry skin it is perfect. It is a primer so barely gives any coverage but is great for adding radiance and creating that “healthy” polished look. I have used it on my wedding day, and used it up completely. Absolutely incredible! Gets big thumbs up from me.

 Chanel Les Beiges All-in-One Healthy Glow Fluid SPF15 ( £34 from Harrods and from Nordstrom).

The “foundation” I loved the most this year. A very light and moisturising one, feels light on the skin, and gives a light (to medium) coverage. According to Chanel, it contains  a hyaluronic acid derivative and  a complex of cotton flower and white rose plant cells.  It has a relatively strong scent but I personally like it. Another thing I love about it is a chic and minimalistic tube. And SPF 15, of course.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Lift In a Tube. Dual Ended  Full Coverage Anti-Aging Concealer and  Brightener (in Light). I am not sure if the name of this product could be even longer. (From Selfridges and Sephora)

Long time readers will know how  I like only very light textures under my eyes hence I am such a fan of Touche Eclat (I’ve used many many tubes) and this Rouge Bunny Rouge gem. The same goes with this product, I did not use the concealer side at all. However, the Illuminator is incredible, I have almost used it up. It does not enhance the fine lines,  while reflecting the light which brightens the under eye area. Just don’t expect it to cover the dark circles completely, it is not the task of this product. I wonder if this Illuminator is available individually. It seems like there is one with the same name ( It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Light).

4 theBalm Balm Desert (review).

I feel like the next two products do not need an introduction, as I’ve been  talking about them non stop.  I am determined to use this bronzer/blush until I am completely  done with it. It sculpts and gives colour at the same time.  You get definition and a healthy glow with Balm Desert. I also love the finish, it is not matte but not shimmery.  Everything about it is great, including the cute cardboard packaging.

5 Daniel Sandler Watercolour in Golden Glow (review). 

It’s like a healthy post-holiday glow in a bottle.  A shimmery bronze which

SS19 Blush Palettes: Chanel, NARS, Jouer and Benefit

We already had a preview of the upcoming makeup products such as lip lacquers, highlighter sticks, eye shadow palettes and human hair wigs.

So let’s take a look at cheek palettes, and there are quite a few, these are just the ones I’ve chosen.

Without a doubt, the most covetable palette of the SS19 season will be this lill gem from Chanel –  Voyage de Chanel (£52 from the website) which is  a blush/illuminating powders quad.

African American Wigs

  • Paris – A fresh and satiny pink blush that recreates the flush of brisk air of Paris along the banks of the Seine River.
  • London – A deep coral blush, inspired by the colourful façades of the Portobello Market in Notting Hill.
  • New York – A satiny powder that brings to mind the metallic golden finish of the Brooklyn Bridge.
  • Tokyo – A subtly rosy illuminating powder that recalls the poetic grace of cherry blossoms in Japan.

Besides Chanel, there are a few other gorgeous palettes to choose from:
