Favorite Face of February 2016

If you are not familiar with the „Favorite Face of …“ series, click here for a little introduction. Short story even shorter, it is the makeup that I wore most during that month, featuring the favorite (as in most used) makeup products.

 

Brown eyes and a bright fuchsia lip. And an awkward face, because... why not?

Even though I don’t celebrate Valentines Day, I feel like February is the month were you really can´t escape the pinks. And even though pink usually looks either washed out on me or like I am trying to to Barbie-Cosplay (I wish I had that waist…), I managed to find a pink lip color I fell in love with to see me through this month.

And once again, I filmed everything for You Tube. Enjoy!

    Another absolutely stunning look! I wish I could get away with such a bold lip colour as this is beautiful on you. And I swear by Clinique’s chubby sticks, especially for bronzing! x

    • I haven’t tried the face ones except one blush, but I really want to look into the contouring ones as well.

  • I love this look and Cherries In The Snow looks beautiful on you!

    • I rediscovered it when I swatched Fuchsia from the Astor lipsticks and haven’t been able to put it down ever since.

  • That lipstick is stunning & I really love your hair style! xx

    • Thank you. My hair was all over the place, so braids were a convenient solution to have it filming appropriate and out of my face. Do you wear braids a lot?

      • No, but I’m thinking that I should give it a try! xx

  • The hair and makeup looks amazing.
    I love how it pop your eyes.

    Love the look! That lip colour is fantastic! I have already started picking up pink shades for the warmer months! Can’t wait! 🙂

  • I love this look! Cherries in the Snow looks amazing on you! That and the Clinique eyeshadow are favourites. I’m happy to see the Lightening Drops in use. I don’t think it’s released here yet but it’s very interesting. xx

    • You ca use them for highlighting as well, they are quite versatile. I am glad I picked them up.

  • Alice

    Gorgeous look! The lip colour is beyond chic, looks wonderful on you!

    • I had forgotten about it, but swatched another lipstick that made me remember how much I liked it.

  • Love this look Linda! A bright fuchsia lip looks gorgeous on you! I can’t believe we wear the same shade of Catrice foundation! I have the shade and it suits me well, a little too pink but it oxidises into a light yellow eventually!

    • It does oxidize a little on me as well, which is why I mix t with the TBS drops. I wouldn’t have thought we´d be the same shade! How is the finish on your skin? Is it actually matte?
      Oh, and I really enjoyed your latest video. It was kind of cool 😉

  • LOVE THIS. Check out my Best Of Fashion Week article featuring AW16 runway hair and beauty trends!

  • This is a great ‚themed look‘ without looking too themed haha! I love the lipstick on you, I’m also not a big fan of the fuscia shades anymore, but I believe that you pull it off well. The brown eyeshadow complements your blue eyes as well 🙂

    • They look blue due to the lights, in real life they are more greenish. But the beauty with indifferent eyes is that you can make them appear different by playing with the light.

  • You’ve certainly found a faltering pink for your complexion and I really like the braid you’ve styled in your hair here.

    • Braids are a lifesaver as a mother, so my repertoire has grown a lot these last years.

  • Nicole

    You look beautiful!! Great video! 🙂

  • Wonderful video, once again! I think this makeup theme is also great. I see the Barbie influence, but it still comes across as a fun everyday look.

    • Thank you. I have been wearing it a lot. Grown up version of Barbie, I guess.

  • this is one of my favourite make up on you so far ! Classic and elegant ! suit you perfectly 🙂

    Ach, liebe Anne, vielen Dank für das wieder wunderbare Video! Du machst das einfach enorm toll und wieder bin ich beeindruckt von Deinen Schminkkünsten – und wie professionell Du alles handhabst. Ich weiß einmal mehr, dass ich auch schminktechnisch enorm viel Potential noch oben habe 🙂 Und Du siehst absolut toll aus <3 Deine Stimme mag ich übrigens auch sehr.

    • Ich bin mit der Videoqualität noch lange nicht zufrieden, aber man muss sich ja auch entwickeln können. Und vielen Dank für das Kompliment, es ist immer seltsam, wenn man die eigene Stimme auf Band hört, das ist doch irgendwie ganz anders als das, was man so gewöhnt ist.

  • This lipstick color is gorgeous!

  • This is a gorgeous look. I love how you styled your hair.

    • Thank you, braids are a great option for second or even third day hair.

  • I love cherries in the snow on you, I love it on me too! Mine looks a bit more matte though.

    • I guess the lighting makes it look more glossy than it looks in person.

  • You look gorgeous and sweet, I especially love your hair! I love revlon lipsticks!

    • We don’t get them here in Germany so I only have three, but these three are all great quality.

  • There’s something soft and romantic about this look. I actually switched over to a pink blush this month and I’ve stuck with it because it feels more spring-like and I can’t wait for Spring.

    • I am ready for spring as well, but it still is pretty cold here.

  • You look beautiful, Anne! Love the pink lips and the starry top! 🙂

    • Thank you, Lisa. The top barely fits anymore, but I am determined to wear it till the end of pregnancy!

  • Rosanna Briguglio

    Great products, I use the same concealers!
    Have a lovely day 🙂

  • Another lovely FOTD 🙂

    • Oh, hi to Japan! I am stalking your Instagram to get a glimpse of all the beauty over there, I hope you have a great time!

  • I don’t think pink looks washed out on you – not at all. I think this colour is an example of that. Being pretty white myself (I imagine that’s why you said that), I always feel like certain colours make me look more dead than alive, but pink certainly isn’t one of them. And yes, completely agree with you that even though Valentine’s Day isn’t all that, it’s definitely the month for pinks and reds.

    Because I haven’t tried most of these products, I’d have to say I’m most excited to try out both the foundation and the concealer. The first I haven’t heard of, but it looks like something that would definitely work for me (I think).

    • This pink doesn’t, but the pastels and soft pinks aren’t my kind of shade. Probably because of the light hair.
      Catrice isn´t widely available, only in a few countries, which is a shame, as they have some great stuff. If I tease you too much, we may do a swap at some point, where I send you Germany exclusive stuff you really want to try and vice versa. Just let me know.

  • That lipstick is a lovely colour on you! 🙂 I had my ‚colours‘ done and was told the same – pastel and pale pinks aren’t the best for me near my face. I don’t wear much makeup though, I just have the one lipstick, a brighter shade, after I eventually had to replace my everyday nude like one I wore for my wedding, haha!

    Away From The Blue Blog

    • I guess these pale shades don’t go too well with light hair and fair skin, so we should go bolder. Or stay nude, whichever the personal preference. I really enjoy bold lips, as you probably already noticed.

  • AngeliePangilinan

    The lipstick shade looks so good on you 🙂

  • Fuchsia color looks so good on you! I need to get this lipstick, look absolutely amazing! And I don’t find myself wearing more pink in February, I guess Valentine isn’t rubbing off on me 🙂

    • I would have sworn it wouldn’t on me as well, but it seems I am easier influenced than I thought. Do you get Revlon? We don’t have it in Germany, I bought that one in New Zealand.

      • Really? We do have it in Lithuania and I love their products.

        • It is such a shame, they do have some lovely stuff. You get it in the UK, in France, everywhere, just not in Germany.

  • Kate

    This is such a pretty look! I love that it seems quite quick and simple to do, yet the finished result is very glamorous. I think I need to get Cherries in the Snow! x

    • It is very easy, the base takes the most time, to be honest, and that part can be easily skipped (if you aren’t filming, that is). I am all about quick looks in the morning.

  • This is a really pretty makeup look. The lipstick is a great colour and I loved the sound of the blusher. Gemma x

  • OMG, I have been wearing a very similar look, Anne..as in a eyeshadow crayon which is blended out, black liner and mascara. Haha! I have been so lazy so no playing around with eyeshadows, no time for blending, blending, blending. Recently I have been wearing YSL Fuchsia In Rage a lot, well I’m forcing myself to wear it since I bought it in 2014 and almost never use it. Eek!

    Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

    • I just cant be bothered with lots of blending at the moment as well, I want to have my makeup done and be ready to chill out within minutes. I am so tired these days!
      Have you ever posted a picture of that YSL lipstick? Fuchsia in rage sounds scary!

      • Oh gosh, I don’t think I ever have posted a look with that lipstick! Thanks for bringing it up, I’ll post something on IG later in the week!

  • You look stunning, that lip color looks great on you! I have it and haven’t worn it in awhile, I’ll definitely be pulling it out to wear. It’s a good transition color too, nice and dark but still bright. If that makes any sense. LOL!

    • I hadn´t worn it in ages as well, but when I swatched the Astor lipsticks I fell in love with the fuchsia color and remembered I had something similar already, so up on my vanity it went.

  • Love your face of February. 🙂 Very pretty! Those Clinique Chubby Sticks for eyes are great. I’ve wanted to buy fuller fudge and lots a latte for ages. Mac blushes are also some of my favourites. By the way, love your hair do as well. x

    • I only had Bountiful Beige until Christmas, but they are so easy to wear! And you really can´t go wrong with these bronze-browns in my opinion.

  • hahaha but that shade works well on you! i used to feel awkward about pink as well. i wear it more often these days but still, wouldn’t be my go to hue.

    • I am still more for reds and that kind, but I am trying to have more of a variety these days.

  • I love the lipstick you have on and the blush by Mac is a nice shade 🙂

    • They really are so easy and convenient, no brushes needed, easy to throw in a purse and in a big variety of colors.

  • Such a beautiful favourite face of the month! I love the combination of brown eye makeup and fuchsia lips, they suit you! Also your hair style looks fab, whenever I try to do a similar one, it never looks that good!

    • Braids are my go-to look whenever I don’t have time or patience to style my hair, which is almost every day, to be honest, so I have tried a lot of styles over the last year and a half.

  • I loved this look! You’re doing amazing keeping up with the videos. The blush and lips especially look gorgeous xx
    thebeautybloss.com

    • To be honest I feel the need to refilm all of the ones I have scheduled because I have learned so much about background, lighting and sound since I started I cringe when I see this one for example, with me being out of focus and the sound a little off.
      But I guess you will have to bear with me and I hope you will see the improvement in the videos to come until I start filming again.

  • You look amazing! Although this post is about your face, I can’t help but swoon over your hairstyle aswell – so pretty!!

    Pop over to my blog 🙂

    • Haha, thank you. Braids are my go-to whenever I can´t be bothered to heat style my hair.

  • The fuchsia lipstick is so pretty! A very nice color, and it suits you really well!

    • Danke. Ist Revlon, leider hier nur online zu bekommen.

      • Schade eigentlich, die haben oft sehr schöne Lippenprodukte…:/

        • Ja.
          Und ich kaufe Makeup ungern online, ich probiere lieber direkt aus, deswegen habe ich nur ein paar, die ich von Reisen mitgenommen habe.
