SS20 Luxury Makeup: Tom Ford, Charlotte Tilbury and Gucci

Summer is the season when we do not want to wear tonnes of makeup,  it’s all about the glowing, healthy looking skin with just a hint of blush.

And let’s not forget glossy and vibrant manicure and pedicure.

So here are a few luxury products which were recently released and which seem like a dream.

Gucci Vernis à Ongles Nail Polish, £22 from the website and Selfridges.

Gucci are killing it with their beauty releases lately, and the newest nail polish capsule collection, inspired by the iconic Hollywood films, is not an exception.

Those bottles and colours!  You can choose from:

SS20 New In: Tom Ford, Kerastase, Le Labo and Rouje

As I’ve already mentioned a few times, these days I try to post about the new launches on my Facebook group.

But I still love writing these round-ups of the new launches which stood out to me the most, so here we go. Makeup, fragrance, hair care and a fragrance.

Tom Ford Rose Prick, £218 from Selfridges  and Nordstrom.

When it comes to names like this it can go very wrong it can just get too tacky and vulgar. However “rose prick” somehow manages to avoid that, or is it just me? And I can never have too many rose fragrances. Bulgarian, Turkish and Rose de Mai mixed with  Sichuan pepper, turmeric and tonka bean. I have to sniff it next time I am near TF counter. 

Speaking of fragrances, the cult perfume brand Le Labo launched

SS19 Lip Products: Lisa Eldridge, Laura Mercier, BITE Beauty, Tom Ford, Hourglass, Givenchy

Spring/Summer season beauty wise means new lip releases, so I’ve chosen the ones that caught my attention.  It is insane how the textures and the formulas improve all the time and we get more sophisticated lip products all the time. Just take a look at these innovative gems.

Laura Mercier Velour Lip Powder in Paris (shown) and New York £25 from Cult Beauty $28 from the Website, Nordstrom

A limited edition creamy matte lip powder trio with a metallic sheen. Comes with a moisturizing Base Balm to prep the lips. These look really cool, and I love the concept.

Lisa Eldridge lipsticks. The red ones sold out within a day(s) so I did not even have time to get any. But she promised a restock, and new nude and fuchsia shades (see below a pic of Eva wearing one of the new shades; pic is from Lisa’s Insta)!  I don’t know the date yet.

BITE BEAUTY Outburst Longwear Lip Stain, $24 from Sephora

Bite beauty lip products are incredible, and it looks like it’s another great one

SS19 Lip Lacquers: byTerry, Clarins, Lancome, Bobbi Brown, Tom Ford, Chanel

Besides the pretty pastel and girly balm-like lipsticks which  are always out for Spring, I have notice one more trend, and that is lacquers.  I have chosen 5 different brands just to give you a taste of what is new, lip wise, for SS19.

Clarins Joli Rouge Lacquer. Clarins is available  from from Selfridges,HarrodsEscentual.com,  Nordstorm,  Sephora, Bergdorf Goodman.

I am a huge fan of Clarins lip products so would expect Rouge Lacquer to be incredible.  The brand promise wet like vinyl finish, hydration and nourishment and easy application, among other things.  There are 7 shades to choose from. Shown above is 744 Plum.

Tom Ford Lip Lacquer Luxe  Matte $57 from Saks.  You can get Tom Ford Beauty from Nordstrom Harrods, Selfridges, BloomingdalesBergdorf Goodman.

Full coverage, highly pigmented, soft matte formula which  should be comfortable and long-lasting on the lips.  If you want to treat yourself – this is the way to go. There are 10 shades to choose from; shown is

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
