My 4 favorite makeup products at the moment

In this blog I would like to share with you my 4 favorite makeup products at the moment.

1, Stila convertible colour, dual lip and cheek cream in the shade Gerbera

At first I wasn’t so sure I liked creme blushes as I thought they were more difficult to blend, but Stilas creme blush has become a favourite of mine. It looks so natural, it blends really well and it lasts all day! It can be applied with your fingers, a brush or a sponge. Im using a blush brush and applying it in circular motions towards the hairline, if you smile its easier to see where to start applying it, it should blend over the “apples” of your cheeks 🙂

2, Youngblood, Natural Mineral Foundation

Youngblood is a mineral makeup brand made from 100% minerals, it contains no perfume or talc, neither are any ingredients tested on animals. This is the makeup brand we are using at my salon in Stockholm, www.hairstars.se. I love their mineral foundation as it suits every skin type, and it covers really well if you apply it in different layers using a foundation brush. For winter when the skin is a bit more dry I like to mix the powder with my moisturiser and use it as a bb cream. It looks very natural, it feels luxurious and stays on really well.

3, Too Faced, Shadow Insurance

I have quite oily eye lids and therefor my eyeshadow wont stay put all day, it has been really annoying until I found this amazing eye primer from Too Faced. You only need a tiny amount of this product on your eyelids before applying your eyeshadow and after that your eye-make up stays on all day and all night, this is especially great for your wedding makeup!

4, Make Up Store, Liquid Eyeliner

Eyeliner looks great on everyone and with this pencil from Makeup Store, it makes it so easy to draw a perfect line. I also use it to blend in individual and full, fake eyelashes to the roots of the eyelashes. Its water resistant and very long lasting, again great for your wedding 🙂

If you want more ideas on which makeup to use or how to use it, please dont hesitate to get in touch with us!

Keep enjoying autumn and I’ll see you next time!
