As you already know, there are tonnes of new foundations coming out our way for AW season, so I thought I’d share about my personal new love, base-wise. Buxom Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation.
I’ve got a sample with a Sephora purchase several months ago, and totally forgot about it, until recently when I threw in some samples to try while I was visiting my family.
Before I start, I have to mention that now I have a tan (plus fake tan on top to make my skin even more “sun kissed”), and I really love experimenting with my makeup, as I can now wear different shades and colours, which usually don’t suit my skin tone.
The shade that I have is the fifth (out of ten) in the line which is Meet Me Latte ( described as “neutral beige for medium skin tones”) which is still a bit dark for me but I can make it work.
Now, the foundation is absolutely amazing! As the name suggests, it is weightless, I don’t feel it on the face, at all. It is like a hydrating tinted moisturizer. I also like that it lasts all day on me, doesn’t melt or look greasy, and I have tested it in very hot climate. But please keep in mind that I have very dry skin.
My second favourite thing is the fact that you get some serious glow! It is not shiny or glittery, but just a
Being a huge HydraQuench Clarins range fan, I was extremely excited about the Tinted Moistirizer from the line which came out recently.
It’s been the only “base” product that I’ve been wearing for the last two weeks. I also included it in my May beauty favourites.
It is a light and non-greasy or oily texture, which is exactly what I need in summer. It doesn’t feel heavy and I don’t get that horrible feeling, as if my skin can’t breathe and I need to take off my makeup as soon, as possible.
Being Clarins, the formula includes skin beneficial ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, which
I have re-organized a lot of my makeup/skincare/body care/ hair care products this month. Yes, I am still trying to think of the best storage for my nail polishes.
It was a great thing to do since I a) re-discovered a lot of products b) gave away cosmetics that I don’t use any more to my aunt c) it’s just nice to have everything neat and tidy.
I actually like keeping some of my most-used products in the Jo Malone packaging, the classic cream and black boxes fit enough of products and look nice in my flat. Above you can see my personal most used primers-bases-concealers.
Showing you my top “base” products seemed like a nice idea, so here we go:
Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory (review and face swatches)
I did not like it that much at first, but now I absolutely adore it. It gives a good coverage for a tinted moisturizer, and is a great product for the days when (you &) your skin is tired and lacks a glow, as it
So, as promised (read part 1 here), here are some makeup tips on how to look your best for when you are tired but still want to make the best out of your appearance. In part one, I have shared all my tips about the complexion and now it’s time for makeup itself.
I find that the way your eye brows look makes a huge difference in your appearance, as they frame your face. Just make sure that you don’t create a very dark or harsh shape, unless you are going for a dramatic look. Just feel in any gaps you may have and cheat the shape slightly, if you wish to. I like Anastasia’s kit with the powders and wax.
Curl your lashes! Now this is a very important step. I have already shared that it took me years (WHY?) to get decent curlers, shu’s of course, although all the Top MUAs always raved about curling your lashes. I should have invested earlier, as they [curlers] make a huge difference. They do open up your eyes! I refuse to be without mine now.
As for the eye shadows, I would suggest
I love Omorovicza so was delighted when I was asked if I’d like to try their Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20.
This is the best ‘foundation’ I have ever put on my face. This could be the end of my review but let me explain why.
The brand describes their products as the “Swiss army knife of the beauty industry”, which is a ‘moisturiser, foundation, sunscreen, concealer and anti-aging cream all-in-one’.
This BB cream has a nice soft texture which easily glides on the skin and leaves it baby-soft.
The coverage is sheer-to-medium but it evens out the skin tone beautifully. I personally don’t use anything else with it, not even an under eye concealer, as I love the results. But you may need/want to use concealer or powder on top.
The skin looks plumped and smooth! It really has a
