Spring is here, so is the sunshine! And with such weather girls usually want to add some fresh and bright colours to their face. And although I personally love cool tones more (on myself), corals and peaches are the in favour of most people.
In fact, even I am wearing some of those shades today. But nothing to neon and in-your-face, so it will suit most people.
To be precise: Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in #5, a gorgeous peach with golden shimmer on my eyes! Yes, really, I think it looks stunning on the eyes but you could wear it on the cheek and lips, too. It’s such a universal product.
And Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 05 Candy Shimmer which gives just the right amount of colour and brings some “life” to the face.
I am using a mix of blushers today but you could go for Jouer Cosmetics Cheek & Lip Tint in Petal to keep up with the whole theme.
It is fun experimenting with
Believe it or not, but it actually took me hours and hours to complete this list, as I had to think carefully about what products I really want or what products I actually need.
This is not really a wish list, but more of a shopping list of the products that I plan to buy in the near future. Of course, I could add more, but I’ve decided to be very strict with myself so every item got on the list after a lot of consideration and is very covetable…
So here is the list!
1. Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette, £26
I have almost finished my Benefit eye pencil and I am definitely getting an Hourglass one next.
2. Matte Eye Shadows Palette
I can’t decide if I should get the Too Faced Matte Eye Shadow Collection (£24.57 from Beauty Bay) or theBalm Meet Matte ($42 from the brand’s website, but they are in the process of creating a European shop, as well). I actually really love the eye shadow quality from both brands: Too Faced Natural Eye Palette Review and Swatches, theBalm Nude Tude Eye Shadows Palette Review and Swatches and the Balm Shady Lady Palette Vol.2 Review and Swatches so that’s a hard one. I only wish Too Faced palette weren’t so bulky. Maybe I should get both?!
3. Cream Blusher
That is probably the last thing that I need, considering how many I have but I’ve decided that I can get one, as a treat for myself. After a lot of consideration, I’ve chosen Stila’s Stila Convertible Colour (I actually can’t believe that I still haven’t tried it!) I think I’ll get Rose or Lillium (£15.12 from Beauty Bay)
Now this is the category of the products that I need. There are a lot of skincare products that I want and the list is endless but these
So what’s inside my makeup bag? If I had a task to create the look with only five products, here is what I’d use. The products that I like are changing constantly so here are those that I am enjoying at the moment.
So the products are:
Daniel Sandler’s Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer (review)
Ok, yes, that is a bit cheating as it is one-in-two product… It’s a perfect foundation for my dry skin, it evens out the skin tone and gives the complexion a dewy glow, exactly what I am looking for!
Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush
I have been loving the shade 09 Soft Murano a lot lately, in fact, I have been using it almost every single day. It is a high quality product for an affordable price plus the colour is very flattering!
Ellis Faas Mascara
This has been my mascara of choice lately. It gives a nice length, separates the lashes, lasts for the long time, without fading, smudging or flaking. It even survives an
I want to know: If you could use only 3 makeup products for your look what would you choose?
- Dark cream shadows
- Cream blush
You can see:
Make Up For Ever 5 Camouflage Cream Palette – No. 1. I’ve bought this palette a long time ago and I think it’s great for covering almost everything but it’s quite heavy to use under the eyes.
Today I would like to tell you about my favourite product by Illamasqua – their Cream Blusher in Rude. What is written about:
Cream Blusher, £16.00 ($23 in the US)
Tease, hypnotise, use to effect. Highlight your cheekbones, shape your face, build and blend with fingers or a brush to create the colour intensity you desire. Use over foundation for impact, or under for a captivating glow. However you apply it, be daring.
Now, in order to better check the results, be sure to take advantage of a trendy Hollywood vanity mirror – great light and detail.
This is how the blush looks like
So what do I like about it so much? Absolutely everything! All Illamasqua products have fabulous design. The colour (I have Rude) is very pigmented & you’ll need just a tiny amount of it, so this blush would last you forever. It’s very easy to blend this blush and it looks amazing on all skin types. I really like how it smells ;). But what is the most important – the blush stays on for a very long time! And I have what to compare with.
The conclusion? This is my favourite product by Illamasqua and I would highly recommend you to try it! Check out how it looks like on the cheeks
