There's a new makeup brand on the market called Makeup Revolution and... wait for it... it is legendary! It's a low-price brand that makes (generally) very high-quality products. MR has been around for about a year and I discovered them about three months ago and have been addicted to them ever since. There will be a lot of reviews of... Continue reading

One of my absolute favourite things to do when it comes to makeup these days is try out little indie brands. I still love me all my big brands, popular names etc, but in a way, given how long I've been doing makeup now, I often get a "been there, done that" feeling with many products. So, I find myself...

A few days ago, I posted five blue looks that I did for every show-night of Entity Theatre's run of The Memory of Water by Shelagh Stephenson. On the fifth night, I had run out of blue ideas. But I had a very persistent design idea in a completely different colour scheme that wouldn't let go of me, so I... Continue reading

Several months ago, I became part again of Entity Theatre in Munich, which is a semi-professional, anglophone theatre company here in my hometown. I had been with them before between about 2004-2006, which is when I left to study and work in Switzerland for a while. I came back for their production of The Memory of Water, an interesting drama... Continue reading

I photograph almost every makeup look I do. It's true, I just always think that it might make for a blog post at some point. Which, life being life, inevitably doesn't ever happen quite like that. Sometimes I love a look but never get around to posting it in time, sometimes I do something for a holiday and then the... Continue reading

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be able to visit my brother in Berlin. It was my first time there and I absolutely loved it! On the last night there, my Mum and I went to see some stand-up comedy and for the occasion, I made sure to be rocking some makeup! I used Stila's amazing Eyes... Continue reading

One of my new favourite things to do at the moment is to use pigments and shadows as liners, via the magic of a mixing medium. Once you have the right product for using your shadows wet, the possibilities are endless and you are no longer confined to the usual liner shades. For myself, I need a mixing medium that...

Sometimes, I just love a monochromatic look for the eyes. But, being me, it still has to zing! Only since last year have I finally been able to get my hands on some Sugarpill shadows and one of the first I got was Flamepoint. This colour is a vibrant, banging matte orange with incredible pigmentation and colour payoff. This is... Continue reading

A little known fact about me is that often when I go to a movie, I'll do a look that's inspired by it. I'm also a film journalist outside of this blog and the movies are something that is very close to my heart and continue to inspire me every day. I'm a huge fan of the Hunger Games series,...

Just a quickie today, a lip I loved wearing a few weeks back and snapped a quick picture of! OCC's Lip Tar in the colour Vain, which is a dark teal. Kinda makes you look like a villain from the Batman universe, doesn't it? I've recently taken to wearing edgier, more unusual lip colours and I gotta say, I love... Continue reading

Hello lovelies! I'm back with another Face of the Day that I did a few days ago and absolutely loved wearing. It was the first time ever I wore black lipstick out in public and it wasn't half as scary as it sounds. Once again, my theory that confidence is the key to wearing any "extravagant" makeup look was confirmed.... Continue reading

Hello, my lovelies!!!!!! It's been so long, I know. This was the longest beauty blog hiatus I've ever gone on since I started, but sometimes, life's just like that. In the course of six months, I got a new job, had to bury my Father and then, just recently, let go of that job again. But now I'm back, with... Continue reading

Hello all you beautiful people! It's been a while, work was crazy in the past two weeks! That, however, doesn't mean I haven't been doing my makeup lately and today, I just wanted to share two looks I did recently that I really loved. Sweet Green I'm just in love with this sweet, soft green! And those lashes! They are... Continue reading

I love turquoise. And I love brown. And I really love both together. I did this look for a night out with my best friend, at the best sushi restaurant in Munich, the Sushiya Bento. The turquoise here is a bluer, vibrant version of the colour. I used Kosmetik Kosmo's limited edition colour Gamsbart (a matte, rich, reddish brown -... Continue reading

Ever since blog reader Katrin asked me to test and review the essence Gel Nails at Home set, I've found myself reaching for nail polish more and more often. I still wouldn't say I do it regularly, but I do get the urge to paint my nails every few weeks, something that hasn't happened in years! Weird. But good. A... Continue reading

I'm just really happy you love it so much and I'm sure you'll rock the hell out of it! You're very, very welcome!
I'm so excited to share this look with you today! My sweet friend Jess asked me via Facebook and Twitter if I could design her a day-look for Batman universe villainess Harley Quinn. Jess is obsessed with all things Harley Quinn - and ya gottah admit, she's one crazeh lady, what wit her boyfriend bein' dah Joker 'n all -... Continue reading

I've always been intrigued by press-on nails. They used to be the worst, most tacky and perverse makeup accessory - is that an accurate description? - I could think of but in recent years, press-on nails have made a really classy comeback, especially design-wise. My local drugstore recently started carrying a few Fing'rs Prints press-on nails and I kinda fell... Continue reading

Hello all you beautiful souls! So glad to be back, sometimes these pesky things known as life and work get in the way :D I'm back with my next Hunger Games Series look, this time we're dealing with District 11, which is the agriculture district in Panem. Rue is from that district, the sweet little girl that teams up with... Continue reading

Hello you beautiful people! Today, I'm introducing a new format at Anna's Makeup Oasis! I have noticed that I often buy a few items of interest from an LE collection but rarely find the time to review each individually and then, I end up posting no reviews at all because somehow, the collection has run its course and the reviews...

This is a FOTD I wore about two weeks ago. It looked gorgeous in person but when I went through the pics, I realized that the sheerness to which I had blended the shadows made it look - in the pictures - like the shadows were faded and all that was left was the golden eyeliner. But I did get... Continue reading

Boy oh boy, this is a tough week! As such, here's just a Face of the Day I did at some point in the last few days. I had so much going on, I don't even remember when I wore it! I do remember getting compliments on it (from two guys, no less!), which given the crassness of the look... Continue reading

Sometimes, being a beauty blogger is, well, beautiful! A few months ago, I got this in the mail: I squeed and ooh'd and aah'd because in my makeup world, most of the best things start with a Benefit bag. Benefit was the one brand that really got me into makeup. I was fifteen and had been experimenting with makeup for... Continue reading

I'm a huge fan of The Hunger Games, both the books and the movies. I saw the movie first and then felt like giving the books a chance, even though young adult literature is definitely not my thing. Heck, even just contemporary literature tends not to be my thing. But somehow I ended up reading the first book and I... Continue reading
