To continue on my French beauty ritual in a previous post, I’ve promised you to reveal some of my makeup secrets.
Makeup wise I don’t use much either. The key is to have makeup on to enhance your best features, but still look like you aren’t wearing any. So I use blot powder from M.A.C as the base of my makeup routine. I shape my brows with an eyebrowpencil (can be each brand you prefer, jut make sure to pick the right colour), I fade the imperfections with Yves Saint Laurent‘s Touche Éclat, and finish my makeup base using a bit of bronzing powder. I use one from Bourjois (disco powder, I like the name!), but it could as well be Terracotta from Guerlain. On the lashes I apply my ultimate favourite: Hypnôse from Lancôme. The regular one because it works best for me. I’ve also discovered another mascara that’s pretty good: the false lash effect 4D mascara from MakeUp Studio. And I sometimes alternate with the classic Maybelline Great Lash mascara.
I rarely use lipstick, because I am addicted to Dr Papaw’s ointment which my friend G. brings back from Australia. It hydrates and plumps the lips. Lately I occasionaly wear lipstick by M.A.C (in a burgundy shade), or the natural looking sheer temptation lipstick from Boots N˚7 in the shade ‘Entice’, but I have a weak spot for lipgloss like Chanel Le Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss ‘Fatale’ N˚61, and my latest purchase, a lipgloss from &Other Stories.
For the evening look I tend to put focus on my eyes. I use the precision eyeliner from L’Oréal or the stylo yeux waterproof noir intense from Chanel. A while ago I discovered the Bobbi Brown sparkle glamour quad for a hint of brilliance or to create smokey eyes.
