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.
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
Who does not want a beautiful and gorgeous highlighter for the holidays season? The next few months will be mental for me in every area of life so I am really looking forward to the holidays, and the glow.
I’ve created a list of some of the highlighters that are on sale now, all of these are limited edition so don’t miss your chance to get them.

There are lots of new makeup launches for Autumn, and I have selected the hottest, in my opinion, for you to choose from. I’ve also made sure to pick something for face, lips and eyes.
Givenchy lipsticks are the hottest ones out there, if you ask me. And while I definitely do not need any new ones, I’d get this one in a heart beat. Leather case and a liquid lipstick which look easy to apply. Oh, yes! The formula is promised to be soft and creamy, and the finish – matte. The shade featured is 410 Rouge Suedin.
It is basically a lipstick which comes in a form of a felt pen which allows a very precise application. Dior claim “long-wearing formula delivers intense colour with a sumptuous matte finish for up to 12 hours”. The colour shown is
Like it or not, but most Autumn 2018 makeup collections are already available, even thought you may not have had your summer holiday yet.
And here are the new launches that stood out to me, and I have chosen something for the lips, eyes and face.
First of all, there is a new make-up artist’s makeup line on the block. This time Gucci Westman finally revealed her long awaited collection. Apparently, the procuts not only work as makeup but also should improve the skin.
I love the chic and modern look of the packaging, and would love to try the liquid blushes myself. So far the line is available from Barney’s ,and I would not mind trying the Baby Cheeks Blush Stick, $50.

Please excuse the lack of features in the last two months but work and personal life just got in the way. However, I am determined to be better with the posts in 2018. But if you do not want to miss updates from me, you are welcome to follow me on Instagram and Twitter.
I would like to dedicate the first feature of 2018 to the new products from my favourite brands: Rouge Bunny Rouge, theBalm, Hourglass and BECCA.
Rouge Bunny Rouge just brought out a Provenance Tales Collector’s Coffret which includes Silvan, Incognito and Silhouette. Each comes is a gorgeous 15 ml glass bottle, so luxurious. A great way to discover the brand. There is also a Fragrant Confections which includes Chatoyant, Vespers and Tenera.
theBalm just released quite a few exciting products. I love theBalm Meet Matt(e) Trimony Matte Eyeshadow Palette (Review and Swatches) so am happy to see Meet Matt(e) Shmaker Eyeshadow Palette ($29.50) which includes a paired selection of 6 matte and 6 shimmer shadows, so dreamy.
There is also a new highlighter. And, as you know, I am also a huge fan of their theBalm The Manizer Sisters Palette (Review and Swatches).The new addition is called Bonnie-Lou Manizer Highlighter & Shimmer ($24) and it is a “gilded glow-getter is an all-in-one highlighter, shadow, and shimmer”.
Finally there are two liquid highlighters: Mary-Dew Manizer & Bonnie-Dew Manizer Liquid Highlighters ($14.50). Our favourite shades now in a liquid formula. theBalm also suggest mixing these with lip products to get that sheen. Bring it on, baby!
As for Hourglass, they are on a roll with the new hot launches. There are new
