Tested for you: Make-up palette “Here You Glow” by Loni Baur
Make-up palettes are not really my thing. Half of the colors and products I’ve bought so far have mostly remained unused. The green was too glittery for me, the mascara brush too thick and greasy, the eyebrow pencil far too hard. As a result, many a palette ended up in the bin at some point. Anything but economical and environmentally friendly. That’s right! That’s why I haven’t bought a palette for a long time.
Make-up palette by Loni Baur
Why I have now broken my resolution is down to Loni Baur. As a beauty journalist, I have experienced her live as a make-up artist on many occasions. I admire her know-how, creativity and expertise. She is one of the most successful German make-up artists for good reason.
Loni has been creating looks for Fashion Weeks for 25 years, has done make-up for stars such as Charlène of Monaco, Gigi Hadid and Lenny Kravitz and has worked with well-known designers and renowned magazines. In April 2022, she launched her own make-up line LONI BAUR. She is a make-up artist with a huge amount of experience in make-up and looks. That’s why I was so excited about her own beauty products and simply had to make an exception for her palette.
Loni on her collection: “I have set myself the goal of making all my experience and knowledge of what makes a look special and how to achieve it accessible to everyone. The individual steps are super easy to recreate and require no prior professional knowledge.“
Two palettes, endless looks
Loni Baur actually has two palettes in her make-up line: “The Face Edition 01 – Here You Glow”, which I chose, and “The Face Edition 02 – Get Reddy”. The latter contains everything for a modern statement look with red lips and midnight blue eyeliner – cool for daytime as well as for a glamorous evening look. Both palettes contain everything you need for a complete professional look. Incidentally, I didn’t imagine them to be so large – they are more of a “make-up table” than a simple make-up palette as you would normally expect.
I want “Glow”
My “Here You Glow” palette with its soft peach tones is perfect for a natural glowy look with soft peach tones that I can use for every day, but also for special occasions. It contains 12 brilliant products in great, all-day-all-night colors: powder bronzer, blush and highlighter, blush stick, three powder eyeshadows, brow pencil duo, eye pencil duo, mascara, nude couture lipstick and a transparent brow gel.
Loni Baur says of Face Edition 01: “HERE YOU GLOW is a look that brings out the best version of yourself. You can wear it easily in everyday life or for special occasions. My celebrity customers love it! The look emphasizes your natural beauty. I thought of silk and cashmere, flattering and feminine peach shades and of course lots of glow.“
Virtual step-by-step instructions
There is a QR code on the lid of the palette that leads to a tutorial in which Loni personally explains the application and gives helpful tips. For example, that the complexion should not be too heavily powdered for a glowy look. She also shows how to blend the eyeliner pencil correctly on the upper lash line and how to create eye highlights with the three eyeshadow shades. Loni Baur applies the creamy blush stick with her fingers and her lipstick in a warm rosewood shade matches every lip color. Perfect make-up, made easy – is her motto.
The products are not only characterized by optimal performance at a professional level. They are of the highest quality with valuable, nourishing ingredients such as almond, olive and jojoba oil. The eyebrow gel contains panthenol, growth-promoting peptides and provitamin B5, which provide additional care. The line is also vegan and meets clean beauty standards.

To travel during my profession as a beauty journalist was never enough for my. Also my six month on a world trip didn’t do it. It always attracts me to other cities, foreign countries, on roadtrips and places I don’t know yet. But I am not only interested in “culture” and “cream”, I am also fascinated by people who have stories to tell . Such unique experiences I want to share with you.
