One day one look

Hi everyone,

I wanted to show you my make up for today.

I will make special articles about each product I used but later if you don’t mind, because I think they really deserve to have their own reviews.

Taking all of these pictures was quite funny, I really took lots of time to do both make up and self-shooting 😉 But it was fun and a nice new great challenge for that blog.

So here is how I did my make up today.

I started with an eye primer, from Kiko, and the Eraser Dark Circles from Maybelline.

I applied then my foundation. I use now the Double Wear (sand) from Estée Lauder, and my Mineralize Skinfinish Natural powder from MAC (medium plus). I apply them generously all over my face, even my lips and nose (that’s why my lips look so white on some pictures ! ).

I also used my concealer palette from Peggy Sage, to hide some blemishes I have on my face.

After that I applied a bronzing powder on my eye bones and cheeks, the Dream Terra Sun from Maybelline (01S Leopard) and then my cream blush from Revlon.

After my face, I did my eyebrows with my shaping kit from Make Up Revolution, and then my eye shadows, still from Coastal Scents (of course). This time I used 4 shades from my new palette : Fleshtone, Deep Merlot, Chocolate Berry and Watermelon. I used my mascara from Lord & Berry and the final touch : my mini lipstick Rouge Eclat from Clarins (woodrose).

We can not really see the red colour on my eyes, I blend it with the brown colour so we can not notice it very well …

What’s your lip balm ?

I like to use lip balms, everyday. I have several and I use each of them on specific moments.

 

  • Clarins Baume Couleur Lèvres (Colour Quench Lip Balm)

I got the lip balm n°6 : “Sweet Papaya”

I like to use that one when I don’t want to wear lipstick, that one is (as mentioned) coloured so it’s easy to have moisturised and super shinning  lips, it’s also perfect when we want a quick touch-up.

 

  • Nuxe Rêve de Miel

It’s an amazing lip balm and I often use it just before applying lipstick (so that I don’t feel my lips too dry). It’s something I will always have in my cosmetic box, I just love it and I love the smell !

 

  • Japanese Lip balms

I have a few lip balms from Japan, and I really like to use them.

(from left to right) :

  • Mentholatum Water Lip : that one simply I keep it on my purse and I use it when I am outside. It’s a good one, and has no smell at all. It really feels like water on the lips so it’s not sticky at all.

  • OMI Brotherhood Menturm medicated stick : this one is the lip balm I use every single day, morning – afternoon – night, I love it and I bought like 3 or 4 of that one (in Japan it costs less than 100 yen each = less than a dollar). It’s with menthol and it feels fresh after I use it. It’s the cheapest I’ve ever had but it’s really working on me.

  • Pure Coenzyme Q10 : this one is from the brand Kose. Why I also have this one is simple : it has a UV cut SPF17, so I use it when it’s a very sunny day.

Have you ever tried one of these ? What’s your lip balm ?
