Looking back yet preparing the future with new amazing makeup products - what better way to start the new year than ensuring only the best of the best makeup is being used? One of my favourite articles to create are yearly favourites, as they are positive and filled with amazing recommendations. This year I decided to split my 2022 favourites by categories and release them at different times. Starting with makeup - my favourite - let’s dive in in a rather long list of the most amazing products I used in 2022.

Supposed to make you feel better from within and packed with a new variety of ingredients, Tati claims that the Anti Aging Booster will help you age gracefully. But is that really true? As usual, I invited pharmacist Liliana to explain the ingredients to us and to answer a list of questions.
Makeup artist and beauty content creator Wayne Goss is a well known figure for his makeup tutorials and advice. He recently added a foundation to his beauty brand, The Luxury Cream Foundation.
