Revlon for Temperley. Create the Look

Here is the look  created by Revlon’s Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman for Temperley at London Fashion Week AW 2011 on Sunday February 19th 2011.

“Alice Temperley is a stylish, successful woman, she was the perfect inspiration and loves a red lip. I also wanted to compliment the beautiful muted palette of the collection and the Venetian theme so created a confident bright red lip using Just Bitten Lip Stain and a strong purple smokey eye. I love the combination of red and purple for a look that is chic, expensive and powerful”

Beach & Holidays Makeup Tips

Summer is the time when we all are enjoying our vacations or just the weekends near the pool or by the ocean. While some women are more than happy to be bare-faced, some still want to enhance their look with the help of the makeup.

But what beauty products are the best for the water and sun involved activities?

Here are some recommendations:

Face

Full on foundation-concealer-powder face is never a good idea on the beach. Instead always apply a sun-protective cream of your choice. Avene Very High Protection Emulsion Very Water Resistant 50+ SPF is a good one.

Eyes

As we know, eye brows frame the face, so never underestimate their importance. To make yours look groomed and polished try using Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Brow, the formula is long-lasting and water resistant, so it will stay on for hours without smudging.

According to various surveys, mascara is the most popular makeup item, so a lot of women don’t want to be without it even on the beach. But what if your favorite mascara is not available in a waterproof version? Anastasia

Benefit ChaCha Tint Review, Photos and Swatches

After playing with my new ChaCha Tint for some time I can finally write my thoughts about the product.

It should be available here very soon now, but it’s already available in the US for $29 (for 12.5 ml). I’ve asked my friend to get me this set which was an amazing deal in May.

To tell the truth, I didn’t even plan to get the ChaCha Tint, as I  want to get try the Posie Tint finally but I couldn’t miss such a great deal since I was getting some products from the US back then anyway.

I have to say that I really regret that I never ordered this set, I have no idea what I was thinking about.

But back to the ChaCha Tint… I really like the  design and the package, it is so Benefit and looks great for summer.

It is described as a mango-tinted stain for lips and cheeks and  I agree with the description. It’s just a shame that it doesn’t smell like mango, too.

I know that that the formula is compared to the Posie Tint and according to swatches I can also see some similarities. But, as I have only Benetint, I can say that ChaCha has a thicker and more gel-like consistency.

The colour looks really intense in the bottle and it really is, so you have to blend it out really well, especially if you have a fair skin like I do. I assume that it would look great on the  dark skin tones and I can’t wait to try it on tanned and dark skin tones.

How to apply it?

As it is a stain, I would recommend
