Top 10 from 2018: Personal Favourite Features and Most Popular Ones

I loved looking back at the most popular  (most viewed) features of 2017, and the ones I personally loved writing the most so decided to do the same this year, as well. But I am combining them in one post now.

My Personal Top 5

These are the features that I wrote in 2018 that I loved working on. And, although I love all of them, here are the ones that stood out.

  1. Bridal Beauty: The Products I’ve Used On My Wedding Day (here).I loved writing about the products I’ve used on my wedding day. I did my own makeup, obviously.
  2. Nails Of The Day: Dior Pandore. Forever Red (here). This is a love letter to my red nail varnishes. Can’t live without red manicure, really.
  3. Holiday: Beauty Edition (here). The feature brings so many memories our a lovely time in Cyprus. I also shared the makeup/beauty products I took with me.
  4. My Christmas 2018 Wish List (here).It took forever to put this list together, as these are truly the items I want. Although the Christmas is long gone, I would still want all of those items ( can be for my Birthday and just because).

5 Features With The Most Views

Holiday: Beauty Edition

A photo of myself online, yeah, I know…

My partner and I just came back from the most incredible holiday in Cyprus last week, and I thought I’d share a few photos and some of our favourite  beauty/grooming products.

Probably the most used product was Clarins Sun Care Oil Spray [Clarins is available from Selfridges,HarrodsEscentual.com,  Nordstorm,  Sephora, Bergdorf Goodman.] just like all the other Clarins for/after sun products. I was picturing the most beautiful photos I’d take for this feature but, unfortunately, we’ve been too busy  enjoying our vacation so I did not have time to do everything that I’ve wanted.

At least I’ve managed to  snap a few beautiful views of the island.

My Top 5 Beauty Tips for a Beach Holiday

I am getting ready for a holiday, and here is the list of the things, beauty related, that I did. I thought I’d share with you, too. And, hopefully, some of you will find it helpful.

Beauty

1.  Waxing appointment.

This is crucial. The last thing that you want on your holiday is to think about the unwanted hair.

2. Shellac

Same for the manicure. I don’t want to worry about my nails not looking nice, plus I won’t have to take all the extra nail care products. More space for shopping!

3. Tint eye brows and lashes. Extensions.

If you are a person that just can’t be without makeup, even on the beach, I did a post just for you. But if you, like

I am Back! And Here is the Makeup I Used During the Holiday Season

I was away for ten days visiting my family and friends and I did not use Internet or my phone 95% of the time. It was the best decision ever, as I could truly enjoy the holidays and now I am back to work/blog/life well rested and motivated.

I was catching up on some blogs  I follow and loved reading “The Best of 2012” features, I should definitely post it myself. But in the meanwhile, here are the makeup products I had with me, and some of them are my all time favourites actually.

Face

Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20 which I took in a small pot helped my skin to look flawless,  I’ve also had my trusted Touche  Eclat  by YSL with me, as well, as Jouer’s Age Repairing Concealer in 3 Cameo.

BECCA’s  Cream Blush in Amaryllis is my all time favourite, so I had to have it to  bring the “life” to my face. Benefit’s High Beam in mini size also helped a lot.

Sienna X’s  Cream To Powder Bronzer & Illuminator is a product I haven’t featured before but I do like it a lot and will definitely post about it soon.

Eyes

First of all, I had my Benefit’s eye brow pencil, as I am never without it. Anastasia’s Genius Top Coat and three of my all time favourite eye shadows: Rouge Bunny Rouge Long Lasting Eye Shadow in Bejewelled Skylark, Daniel Sandler Polychromatic Eyeshadow in Lava and

Getting Ready for the Holidays

Today after work I got myself a new storage for makeup (at last) and some of these beauties. Lots of glitter and  strass, I can’t wait to create some looks with them and already see these beautiful pictures in my head.

And tomorrow I am going to do the look for the most gorgeous girl ever, can’t wait. Maybe one day I will show you my work;)

Obviously the glitter and strass are not for everyday looks, just for fun shoots for the holiday. And the weather here really makes me think about the holidays. I’ve already posted this photo on twitter but here is for the rest of you. And what is the weather like where you live?

I know that a lot of people
