5 Product Tag

Hello beauties!

Lately I have been seeing the “5-product Tag” post by fellow beauty bloggers and liked it very much and decided to do it myself.



These 5 products that I am going to show you do not change much, between summer and winter because they are my favorite everyday  makeup products all year long.

Let’s start!

    1.  Garnier BB Cream for combination skin in medium



This BB cream was a surprise for me as I have tried other higher end brands and did not suit my skin. But this one is very light, doesn't make me shiny, lasts all day with 1-2 powder touch ups, has a pretty good coverage and hasn't caused me any breakouts. 
I love it. I wear it every day and sometimes, if my skin is ok, even at my going out makeup.
The only thing I do not like is the rather intense alcohol smell once you apply it.

  1. MAC Paint Pot in painterly


Anything I say about this product, it will never be enough. I am in love with it.
I wear it alone to brighten my lids when not wearing any eyeshadows.
I wear it as a base when doing everything else. Day or Night.
This means I wear it every single day. I have other shades as well but this one is my favorite for the variety of its uses.

  1. Maybelline The Falsies Black Drama Mascara


I was loyal to another brand for years but one time I was short of cash and needed mascara asap and  thought I would buy one cheaper just for an emergency.  And I got my hands to this one.
And never looked back.
I like my lashes pretty dramatic when doing eye makeup and this mascara fulfills my wish.
Volume, Length, Intense Color, Drama, Durability. What else is there to ask?

  1. Make Up For Ever Mat Bronzer in #230


I was in the search of a good bronzer for a long time. 
Don’t be fooled. This is not the only bronzer I own but surely is one of my favorite.
I bought it during sales and when starting using it, appeared in patches after a while and caused me a breakout…….and I almost had a breakdown.
As I had irritated skin due to sun and sea, I put it aside and told myself I would try again I a month.
The days passed and I gave it another go. 
It was perfect, long lasting and perfect color match. I love it.

  1. Estee Lauder Cream Blush in 04 berry light  & H&M blush in dazzling peach.


I apologize for putting two products in the same category but it is one of the those that do change during the change of season.
So I have been wearing H&M blush all summer because it as one the most beautiful peachy, with a slight sheen to it, colors I have ever tried. It blends beautifully with the bronzer and has incredible ling lasting power.
In winter I usually wear this beautiful cream blush that gives my cheeks a healthy glow, not shine, and a splash of color. It blends easily though is not very long lasting. 
I love it though because of its dusty pink-mauve shade which is my favorite.

Well, these are my favorite 5 products that I could not live without and use every day.

Is any of them one of your favorite too? Do tell!

As always,

Stay healthy & beautiful

U see it? Conceal it!!

Hello my beauties!

How are you? I know it's been a long time but  I am back with a hot issue! 

Concealers!

They are as important as foundation. You have to find the one that suits your skin type and needs.
Every girl should have two concealers. One lighter than their skin for the undereye area and one similar to your skin tone to hide any blemishes or imperfections.

Below I am showing you my concealers which are not only two but what can I do? I am only a girl!






Let's talk about them one by one.
From up left:

1. Kryolan Erase Deckstift Neutralizer
 It is a rather heavy green concealer that is suitable to neutralise intense redness to the face & body. 
 Above this you use your regural concealer to give your skin healthy look.

2. Kryolan Erase Deckstift X1
 At first when I saw this concealer I thought I could never use it as it does not look like skin colour but it is a  yellow based creme crayon that is perfect for highlighting any areas you want. Avoid big quantity on the face. Kryolan are meant to be stage makeup therefore rather heavy.

3. Vichy Dermablend ultra corrective foundation cream-stick #light clair 13
 As you can tell by its name it is a foundation on stick. But as you all know, stick foundations are drier than the liquid ones, therefore heavier. But I always wanted to try the Vichy Dermablend and as I do not have that of a bad skin I preffered the stick foundation as a face concealer to cover up any blemishes.
I like it very much, it does't move a lot but needs good blending.

4. Clinique Even Better Concealer #natural
It is a rather new member to the Even Better family and it is here to stay. it is super creamy, yet stable. Blends really well on your skin and it is great for undereye concealer, if skin is not very dry, as well for covering imperfections.

5. Make Up For Ever Camouflage Cream # 17
It is another green camouflage creme which I prefer using on the face, instead of the Kryolan, as it is a little bit lighter and is buildable. I have occassionaly red spots in my face and this creme is perfect to neautralise everything.

6. Make Up For Ever Camouflage Cream # 20
This is an orangy colour camouflage creme which is used to neutralise the blueness of the dark circles under your eyes. As it is intense you use it carefully and build it. Above this you put your preffered undereye concealer to cover the orange and brighten the area.

7. Clinique Line Smoothing concealer # 03 moderately fair
This is an all time classic concealer. It is light weighted, moisturising and ideal for the undereye area. It is perfect for your everyday concealer but not very good for covering up any blemishes and imperfections as it does not has a very good staying power.

8. Clinique All About Eyes Concealer # 01 light neutral
This is maybe my favourite undereye concealer. It is neither light or heavy and a little goes a long way.
It is moisturising and has a very good staying power. I use it for my eyes only and not the face.

Well, that is all! 
I always want to try a new concealer so I will probably be back with more of them!

Which is your favourite concealer and how many do you have?

Stay healthy & beautiful
