    Great reviews but would be even better with quick swatches.

        Dear Arna, after having seen your video I bought both bare minerals products, the bronzer as well as the highlighter. They are both really gorgeous , I also have pale skin and the bronzer is so light, no fear to take too much colour , great. Thanks for this great recommendation. Greeting from germany, Svenja :D

        The bare minerals highlighter was the very first highlighter i ever bought. I wasnt sure about highlighters at the time and just wanted to dip my toes into them and didnt want anything super blinding. Now i like the more blinding highlighters and dont wear it that much but it is a very good highlighter. It makes beautifal natural and subtle highlight on the skin.

        Ill have to take a look at the bronzers again. I think i looked at them before and they looked too dark.

          A lot of those brands not available here. Could you maybe show how the products apply? It makes it easier to know if a product is worth trying to find..

            The two faced concealer is my fav too!!
            buuuut I do have monster discolouration and darkness under my eyes, so sometimes the medium coverage just isnt enough for me.. I would love to see you review the new concealer that they are coming out with when it arrives in Australia!!

              Where do I get the ChiChi Eye Brightener Duo in Europe? I always wanted a good white eyeliner that actually stays in the waterline for more than a minute! I'm buying the Zoeva Graphic Eyes Pencil right now.

                It’s only sold in Australia, but I suggest the Essence Extreme Lasting Eye Pencil in Silky Nude :) very similar, affordable, and available in Europe.

              Hello! I absolutely love you pale skin look! It's very 40s. I don't know how I missed your channel before. I have a few questions. I don't have eye lashes or brows because of trichotillomania and have them tattooed instead. Would your looks look weird with just foundation and lip stick? Also how old are you? I think I might be older then you which is why when I was trying on my foundation and dark lipstick it looked more creased. Thanks!

                Thank you! I'm 32. I'm going to be going through more of your videos in the coming weeks and bothering you with more questions. lol I think we're skin twins! I live in Southern California and it's always sunny here so I have sun damage. Have you ever used giorgio armani foundation? That's what I've currently been using.

              I need to give that Jordana cream contour a go, I’ve got the benefit hoola one but I don’t really like it... I also want to try the bare minerals bronzer, it looks so beautiful

                Hi Arna! How does the Hourglass bronzer compare to the Bare Minerals bronzer in regards to a natural glow? Thanks! :)

                I love those two highlights too! The Mac one definitely doesn't get enough hype, it's amazing. I really want to try the stila lipsticks from your recommendations xx

                    I only follow a handful of beauty channels bc it seems everybody reviews the same stuff at the same time and it's monotonous...I like that ur honest whether u like or dislike stuff and review things that aren't currently in the top 10 trending. Those lippies r gorgeous and I'm seriously wanting them, but it's a toss up between Pony lippies and these...the consistency of both seem nice and the colors are so gorge for fair skin💕 Love ur new background btw...its blurred and reminds me of filming in NY...nobody could tell where u are just that there's buildings... but they're *kool* buildings👍🏻😂💗

                        I absolutely love the stila stay all day liquid lips! The only one I have is perrla however I feel it pulls a little blue toned on me. I'm trying to choose a more pinky nude shade. Maybe caro? It's been a while since I've looked but if you have a suggestion I'd love it!

                          I don’t have a pinky nude from them (Caramello is quite tan) but I love Patina for a nice pinky mauve!

                          Definitely love the background; looks really cool. You got me hooked on the Jordana cream contour. I've totally given up on every other contour product I've collected.

                                Hi Jill - Have you tried Amazon? They'll ship internationally. Also there's online stores like Escentual & Debenhams (UK) that ship internationally too - I've not bought from them yet, but they're in my list of places to try when I'm looking for stuff we can't get here in Oz.

                              I love the BH cosmetics brow pencils, I have both types, the micro one with the spoolie on the other end, and the double ended ones, both in several shades as I forever change my hair colour but my natural brows are blond.

                              I bought the Jordana contour stick based on your recommendation and love it.

                              I love the Stila liquid lipsticks. I usually buy the sets of minis when they go on sale after Christmas.

                              I really want to try both the Mac Double Gleam and the Too Faced Love Lights - Blinded by the Lights.

                                  When I got ready today, I used the Jordana contour. I bought it after you first mentioned it and it’s been my go-to ever since!

                                  I bought the Jordan’s stick on a whim too! I find the bast application for me is to swipe it onto my beauty sponge and press it onto my cheek. Instantly blended look!

                                  Bronzer always look muddy or dark on me but thanks to you I found the ELF pearls and they have been a game changer! They add just enough warmth to the face and I love them!

                                  I went into the mac Store to check out double gleam but the sales assistant was so snooty! I told her I need a highlighter for super fair skin but she chose such a dark colour for me. 😒😒😒 arna, please let me know if mac double gleam will show up on my skin and if it's worth the splurge? Because even becca moonstone doesn't show up that well on me.

                                    Ugh I hate snooty sales assistants. It definitely will. It’s description on MAC describes it as a Nude that flashes silver or something like that haha so it has a stronger cool glossy effect on the skin but without the heavy base pigment. Therefore, when you’re facing the front, you won’t see it, but as you shift your head, it’ll shine like a diamond 🤗

                                  I love that too faced highlighter too. It’s beautiful on fair skin. I bought it before seeing any reviews and I’m glad I did.

                                  There is definitely and idea now that if one big influencer hates a product then it must not be worth buying. I’m learning now that makeup reacts differently and looks different on different skin and my most flattering product may look terrible on others. For me the biggest differences I find are in foundations and powders. There are many raved about products that melt off my face or look terrible right off or within two hours and some hated ones that I love.

                                        Completely agree that Stilla doesn’t get the attention deserved. I love their products!

                                          Too Faced concealer is oil free, it’s not going to be hydrating, stop misleading your viewers.

                                            Others have already defended my explanation, so thanks for sharing the science peeps :) but I also just want to let you know Diane that I was a bit taken aback by your comment. It felt a bit accusatory and actually a bit out of character for my subbies’ normal comments. Are you a regular viewer of mine? If not, I suggest watching a few more of my videos because I really pride myself on my authenticity and realness. I never ever want to mislead my viewers xx

                                            There is a difference between hydration and moisture:
                                            *Hydration= Water* (Lack of hydration in skin can & will cause a tight and sunken appearance in skin. Re-hydrating the skin with ingredients such as Hyaluronic acid will cause water to be drawn into the skin therefore hydrating it and making it appear more supple and plump)
                                            *Moisture= Oil* (Lack of moisture in the skin can & will cause dry and flaky skin. It can also cause the skin to be red and raw if the moisture barrier is damaged as well. Re-moisturising the skin with occlusive ingredients such as oils will cause the skin to soften and may help in repairing the moisture barrier therefore potentially helping to normalise the skin after trauma such as over-exfoliation, laser treatments & chemical peels)

                                            The Too Faced concealer would therefore be categorised as hydrating as I'm 99% sure it contains Hyaluronic Acid & coconut water which would potentially help with temporarily plumping up the undereyes and making tired eyes look less tired. Pleases note that skincare ingredients (INCLUDING SPF) in makeup are *NOT* a replacement for a adequate skincare routine.

                                            Diane Reiser oil is not the only form of hydration in cosmetic products. This concealer contains coconut water, which is also known for hydration. Lots of other brands include it in their hydrating products. As well as other ingredients that are also hydrating like aloe, hyaluronic acid, etc. She is not being misleading at all. “Oil free” makeup does not mean there are no other hydrating ingredients, just no oil as oils don’t work for everyone and are often too heavy and comedogenic.

                                            Diane Reiser products don’t require oil to be hydrating tho?

                                          I like the blinds open it kinda creates a cool geometric background ☺️ This bit is optional but I think also pointing the camera upward a tinsy bit more or raising the tripod height.. Just because the very top of your head is out frame, doing so would make you more centred in the frame.. 🙂

                                            I was surprised that the BareMinerals highlighter suited me (and my fair olive/cool yellow undertones). I'm pretty sure the pink toned blends in with my blush, leaving the shimmer (?) visible.
                                            Personally, I think Eye of Horus is a pretty underrated brand!

                                              Hell yes to Eye of Horus - I love their stuff. Holy grail pencils, brow products & mascara.

                                              Yes yes I agree!! I use to own their liners and they were great! That’s awesome you suit the Bare Minerals highlight :) it appears a little more like a soft cream sheen on the skin!

                                            Love the video! I have already purchased a ton of make up products you recommended and it was never a disappointment :) Mac double gleam and too faced blinded by the light became my absolute favourite highlighters (and I have a lot of highlighters) I just ordered a set of mini Stilla lipsticks and the Cover FX Natural Finish foundation as well so am looking forward to trying them out! And I get the feeling it won't end there! I truly love the way you talk about products (both the good and the bad) as you not only provide a lot of information but also give your views, which is great! I am definitely waiting for more!

                                            There are too many great brands out there that get like zero love and I'm not talking just indie brands major brands Milani, Pixi and Buxom to name a few not to mention "local" brands only sold in your perspective country. Here in Canada we have brands like Annabelle and Marcelle that are great and yet people don't talk about them even Canadian youtubers.

                                              Yes I agree! I’ve NEVER seen any of the major Canadian YTers mention those brands!! I’m keen to do a full face of Canadian makeup since I can use those Annabelle makeup goodies you sent me and MAC & Cover FX makeup haha do you know any other Canadian brands I can get access to?

                                            I agree with you, if one yt bashes a brand there are a lot if yt that follow without reading instructions well or having product knowledge. Charlotte tilbury eyeshadow fe they are so so beautiful but you have to use them in the manner as she explains in a lot of her video 's and they are worth every penny, i own 4 of them, some of the yt go in with a brush on the glitter shade and bash it for not working, that eyeshadow is made to use with your finger... oh people...
