Hey what am I doing here? Am I being featured in a Guest Post Series on my own blog?
Dear readers, here is the occasion... I will be on my way to Japan in about 6 hours from now. During the long hours I will be petting brushes, I was thinking what would be the best thing to keep up with the blog? I could prepare posts before hand and try to publish every now and then. But sometimes I come up with even a better idea!
I was asked to feature more "Favorites" and I had it top on my list to write a "Blogs I Love to Read" post. What about combining these two?
During the upcoming days I am going to bring you ten talented bloggers from blogs I love reading myself. I invited them to share their favorites for Spring with you. They will also feature regional trends and tips.
I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart to every blogger who gave their time to prepare wonderful posts for me. I am very flattered to see that each and every one I asked agreed without a hesitation. One of the best things about blogging must be friendship and contacts and I came to recognize it more than ever by this blog post series.
I would like to start with my favorites at the moment as an opening post to Guest Post Series, Faces of Spring. My post is rather quick since I don't have so much time in my hands at the moment. You know, I haven't packed yet! *grins*
|My recent favorites, Faces of Spring|
Here are my favorites at the moment, which I frequently reach for:
Guerlain Lingeri de Peau BB Beauty Booster: This one is on top of my favorites base products over a year. I also reach for Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation (reviewed here) often. Guardian's BB cream is light, comfortable to wear and it has a decent coverage.
Clarins Instant Concealer*: After trying it out recently (reviewed here), I can't use any other concealer. It has a very good lasting power and it brightens up under my eyes without creasing.
Guerlain Météorites Perles #02 Teint Beige: This is the older formula which I liked more because I find the new one to be more powdery and more shimmery. I use it as a finishing powder. I love it to even out the skin tone and blur the imperfections.
Cheeks, Highlight & Contouring
Suqqu Lighting Liquid*: After I discovered this product, my cheeks bones got a lift up. I would like to write a detailed post about it but I couldn't get it done before I leave for vacation. In the mean while it might sell out, so I thought I should let you know. It is especially good for light complexions since the base shade is very light. Because of this, I don't recommend to mix it in the foundation. But as you pad a tiny amount over your cheek bones, it makes a difference and it looks very natural. I also recommend it for combination skin since it is not shimmery at all.
Kevyn Aucoin The Sculpting Powder in Medium: Together with Chanel Notorious, this is my holy grail sculpting product. I use this one almost everyday and I hit the pan already. A new one is on its way to me.
Guerlain Météorites Perles de Blush Éclat Angélique*: This gives a lovely natural flush with a nice radiance. It is my favorite cheek product from this year's Spring Collections (reviewed here).
Tom Ford Eye Color Duo #01 Ripe Plum*: It is no secret that I was a big fan of Tom Ford's Spring Collection. This item was the one I reached for most often. I love the idea of the opalescent shade and layering with the deeper base. (reviewed here)
Burberry Effortless Eye Brow Definer #02 Sepia*: This one is a great quick brow fix if you have bald spots in your brows such as I do!
Rouge Bunny Rouge Feline Gaze Eye Khol #062 Lilith*: It is a great black shade which is not too deep and the consistency is not too creamy nor too dry. It wears applies easily and wears long on me. It also doesn't look too heavy a la Urban Decay Perversion.
There are a few shades I am loving in this category but my choice for this look is Estée Lauder's Lip Color Envy Shine in Inspiring* (reviewed here).
