My darlings I’ve mentioned before how much I enjoy creating different makeup looks, especially on the weekends. A new category starts today on the blog around all sorts of beauty related topics. Honestly during working days I rarely go with much makeup as I enjoy sleeping longer too much. To second this, I carry special orders from my mum to never exit the house without making an effort.
Every morning on a weekday I spend about 7 minutes for these simple steps:
- Moisturise face, neck and eye area
- Apply a thin layer of powder, lately I’ve been skipping entirely makeup
- Conceal my dark cycles
- Blush my cheers and highlight my cheekbones
- Spray glow mist
I ordered my Bourjois blush (here, here) from Asos a few months ago and I became ecstatic when I realised this the first makeup item I ever owned. I bought it 12 years ago after the first year of my studies, spoiling myself after a working the whole summer as a dishwasher in Corfu island (Greece). This blush restored many bitter-sweet memories. Do you recall what was the first makeup item you ever bought?
I only own one highlighter from Nars and I highly suggest it to those of you who are into portrait photography. This beauty it does wonders with the light. Find Nars Highlighter (here, here) and makeup brush from Real Techniques (here). I plan to spoil myself with the Urban Decay Flushed palette (here) some time soon. Does anyone has experience with it? Please let me know on the comments below.
I’ve read recently that a statistically a woman eats in a lifetime about 3,5 kg lipstick. Shocking isn’t it?! I’ve been testing a lot more natural cosmetics lately and I love the certified natural cosmetic German brand Lavera (here).
My Pixi by Petra glow mist (here, here) has been my faithful spray for the whole summer and it provides a sort of dewy and radiant texture on the skin. During autumn I’ve been using is as a moisturizer, it smells simply amazing.
How is this week treating you so far? I’ve been feeling cold and hungry as autumn cold stricked brutally early here in Bavaria.
