Ellis Faas On The Edge Of Beauty Book

Wow, this is something to get really excited about. Makeup book from Ellis Faas ! She is a genius so this must be a real eye candy.

Ellis Faas  On The Edge Of Beauty Book

I love how this book is described, so I will just leave you with the official promo release:

“It is typical of the art of ellis faas to question and destabilise the rules and expectations of the beauty industry, to explore definitions and push boundaries of beauty.
While adopting traditional tools and techniques of the trade, she attempts to transcend the industry’s restrictions, the idealised sense of perfection and the tendency towards global uniformity.
To this end she makes use, in turn, of visual

February 2015 Beauty Favourites

Makeup wise, it was pretty much all the same in February, and you can read about all the products here.  There is also something very different from  me this month – I’ve been loving nude lipsticks (which is  a complete shock for me), and I will write a feature about it soon.

February 2015 Beauty Favourites Balance me, Illamasqua, Yves Rocher, L'Occitane, Max Factor

There are only two other makeup products that I want to mention:

Illamasqua’s Nail Varnish in Nomad. I wore in for the whole last week of the month, and this gorgeous jade set me in the mood for Spring.  Not too pastel but not too bright, it is just perfect.

Max Factor’s  Creme Puff Blush in 25 Alluring Rose. This is a shade created for medium  and dark skin  tones, so on me it looks like a bronzer. It blends out beautifully and gives a gorgeous glow.  Look out for the feature about these new blushes this week.

As for the beauty products – I was very stressed and completely out of time  in February, so shower time was the ultimate luxury and “me” time when I could just think and reflect on what was going on. I have tonnes of shower products in my tiny bathroom, and have been loving all of them, but two

Makeup Products That Never Let Me Down

Last week(s) was very stressful and intense for me, I’ve barely had time for anything (lack of sleep, eating on the go, putting makeup on in a taxi) but I still had to look good. This is why I had to stick to the products that work the best for me, and didn’t have time for any experiments. So here is a selection  that I love, that work, and that never let me down.

As I’ve mentioned on Twitter , I’ve re-discovered my love for Molecule 01. And a lot of people have been asking me about the perfume’s name. So it is everything it is promised to be!

Makeup wise – my “foundation” of choice was Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer which did not enhance any dry patches, and made my skin look glowing. It also helped to even out the skin tone, as I don’t have any major skin problems – this was enough.  Bobbi Brown’s Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate is also a real gem, it tints the brows and holds them in place. I am addicted to this product , will write a detailed review soon.

Lip colour is the only thing that I’ve been changing, but most of the times that was all about the new Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfectors; 03 My Pink created a

January 2015 Beauty Favourites

I am actually surprised that  I have so many  favourites this month, as beauty wasn’t exactly my priority in January. But I truly loved all the products I am going to mention.

Surprisingly, it was all about the brown tones for me this month. I always wear red or berry, but felt like a wanted a change and be rebellious with the nudes. This probably doesn’t even make sense to some of you, I know.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick- Succulence Of Dew in Perfume Of His Gaze – it is described as “sheer tanned nude-beige”, and I totally agree. Never thought that I’d be wearing something like this. But never say never. Plus, it’s only makeup, it is supposed to be fun.

I am sure that you are already bored to death  with me talking about this Trish McEvoy’s bronzer, but this is literally the only product I have been using on my cheeks lately (this and NYX Taupe). And  Hourglass No. 2 Foundation/Blush brush is my favourite tool  for bronzer/blush/healthy glow & colour on my cheeks.

Speaking of Hourglass, their Visionaire Eye Shadows Duo in Gypsy was another favourite. Along with Inglot’s  Eye Shadows AMC Shine 37 – I can never get enough of these two!

Finally, there is a mascara  that I have been using so much that all the words on it on it completely rubbed off – Max Factor Mastepiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara. It gives amazing volume, ultra-black colour and instant wow-effect.

This month it was all about beautiful  skin for me. The mix of Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm (review) and Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer  (review and swatches) was my dream combo. It made the skin smooth, radiant and youthful. And I mean it. I guess the fact that recently several (!) people  thought that I am 19-20 speaks for itself. Plus you could definitely see the “real skin” underneath, no cakey thick masks which are even worse than bad skin tone itself, in my opinion.

Since I wanted to keep things on the light-to-medium side –YSL Touche Eclat  (review and swatches) was my best friend, as well.  For me it is a perfect light reflecting product for under the eye area, you get great, long-lasting results, also Touche Eclat doesn’t enhance the under eye lines.

August was definitely the month of
