My Makeup Routine #6

It’s been a while since I posted my current makeup routine, hasn’t it? It was all the way back in December 2019. Things have been much different back then. Normal. And while there’s still nearly a month left of Summer, the change of seasons is already in the air. This Summer hasn’t been really hot, but nonetheless, it was and still is time for Summer makeup – not just the Summer colors – bright and perky, but textures and formulations as well. Formulations have been mainly the dry ones, powdery ones. Makeup look – minimal and light. The links for these products are listed at the end of this post. My Makeup Routine: Foundation During Summer, are usually and mostly opt […]

Benecos IT Pieces Palette Review

Benecos IT Pieces Palette is a create-it-yourself makeup palette consisting of an affordable assortment of compact powders, eyeshadows, blushes and highlighters.  A bit over a year ago, I reviewed two products from this affordable German green beauty brand, and since they’ve launched the IT Pieces collection and I’ve been collecting the refills for this palette for a while now, I thought it would be a perfect time to share with you my views of some of the refills; especially since it’s still Summer and these products are powder-based/dry formulations. The Benecos IT Pieces Collection offers a small palette and quite a number of refill products to fill out this palette with a lot of combinations, whether it’s just eyeshadows, or […]

My Makeup Routine #5

It’s getting colder and colder and my skin’s been yearning for oilier, heavier textures. As I layer quite a few richer textures before applying a foundation, I’ve been opting for a foundation that’s also thicker in texture but also offers more coverage with a minimal amount of a product used. The colors are a mixture of berry and golden ones. I do not use all the products mentioned in this post at once and, as always, I aim for as minimal natural look as possible. The links for these products are listed at the end of this post.   My Makeup Routine: Foundation My current morning skincare routine is all about layering richer textures, starting with a serum, followed by a […]

Lavera 2 in 1 Compact Foundation Review

Lavera 2 in 1 Compact Foundation is a sturdy creme foundation, offering a great coverage with a matte and velvety finish, while nourishing the skin with its abundant natural ingredients. I’ve been using Lavera products for well over 15 years now and I always have at least one Lavera product I am using – be it from their face care, body care, hair care or makeup line; some are better than others, some are a constant on my cosmetic shelf (their Rose lip balm, for example) – but most of the Lavera products are one of the most affordable within the green beauty segment. Having tried quite a number of Lavera makeup products, including various foundations over the years, the one […]

My Makeup Routine #4

I can’t recall as beautiful October as this one has been – very warm and sunny; up until now, when it’s gotten rainy and quite cold. I’ve been using several different textures of makeup, specifically foundations, switching between creamy, water-based and finally – a BB cream foundation. The colors have been (and will have continue) rotating around earth brown and berry ones… My Makeup Routine: Foundation I’ve been alternating between a few foundations this month. When it was still quite warm, I opted for the trusted Ere Perez Quinoa Water Foundation (full review here): after a light serum, I apply a drop of this foundation, then slightly buff it in before blending it out. This foundation is perfect for those, who prefer […]
