I shared about my personal favourite bronzer here but here are a few others which are worth mentioning.
A part of the annual gorgeous Les Beiges launch, can be used “as a sheer highlighter or subtle bronzer for a natural-looking glow” as Chanel suggest. There are two shades: Sunset and Sand

It’s that time of the year when the brands are bringing out new base products. I have posted about a few foundations already (Tom Ford, Bite Beauty, Estee Lauder). In fact, if you want to know more about the new launches follow me on Facebook.
But here is the preview of some primers, foundations and concealers that caught my attention, and I’ve chosen 6 items.
The one which I am curious to try myself is definitely the Givenchy Teint Couture City Balm, £38 later on from from Sephora, Barneys, Neiman Marcus, Harrods, Nordstrom, Escentual and Feel Unique. I wear very light city SPF products myself, and this sounds right up my street. Besides their Teint Couture line is great.
Laura Mercier, The Queen of base products launched 5 primers which have to be mentioned. Shown are the Pure Canvas Primer Illuminating (“enhancing Porcelain Flower Extract and a blend of Micronized Pearls, the primer imparts a healthy glow on skin”) and Pure Canvas Primer Hydrating (“Olive Extract visibly smooths and locks in hydration while Marine Hydra Botanicals replenish skin and promote long term moisture recovery”). There are also Pure Canvas Primer Blurring, Pure Canvas Primer Protecting and Pure Canvas Primer Perfecting. $38 each from the website.
I have featured “inside my Mum’s makeup bag” a few times, and while I definitely have to post an updated version, I thought it would be fun to show which products my husband’s Mum uses. To be honest, I almost never read about celebrity’s makeup bags but I am always curious to see what family and friends love.
So here we go:
Just like my Mum, my Mother-in-Law likes a good base, a cheek/face product, a lipstick and a mascara. Just the shades are different, as they have a different colouring.
Speaking of Clinique,
Nothing says Christmas and holidays quite like the sequined/shimmering red lipstick so I’ve picked up a few new releases. Both sparkling reds and sequined packaging.
Lipsticks inspired by the cult Studio 54, long lasting, creamy texture, matte finish and sparkling packaging.
Pearl-infused sparkling lipstick, sparkling effect and no grit. The shade featured is Carnelian. There are 2 more.

When it comes to films and series, there are usually a lot of “Steal Her Style” features where the authors suggest what pieces you could buy to get a similar look to your favourte character, should you chose to do so.
But there are not enough articles which focus on beauty or makeup looks, if you ask me. And that is what I always pay attention to when I watch films/series. I actually wrote about the beauty elements of Gossip Girl, as well as Blair Waldorf‘s wedding makeup and Sex and The City already.
I also had a breakdown of the Pan Am looks straight from the Make-Up Artist.
So today I’d like to share about the makeup from the Big Little Lies. Here are the screens from the show when Celeste Wright was getting ready in
