Party look

This is my makeup when I’m going out or I have a party to attend. If you want to know how to create it, keep reading.

The first thing is foundation. I love this Dior Nude Air serum foundation. It provides full coverage while your skin still looks like a real skin. Since it’s a liquid foundation, you’ll get a better result if you apply it with your fingertips.

The next step is concealer. I have tried many different concealer but I always come back to this YSL TOUCHE ÉCLAT.

Then it comes to contouring. I am not good at using powder or stick bronzers. Therefore I use bb cream to countour (maybe it’s weird, but it works perfectly well and it is easier to blend). I use bb cream because they are lighter than a foundation, so it won’t be cakey. To create a flawless finishing you need two shade, one lighter than your skin tone and one darker. This Diorskin Nude BB Creme number 001 is lighter than my skin. This goes on the top of my chicks, under my eyebrows, between my eyebrows and on top of my nose. The  ALL-IN-ONE BB CREAM number 3 from Body Shop is one shade darker than my skin tone. This one goes at the top of my forehead along my hairline , just under my cheekbones and along my jaw bones ( Don’t be scared of the white color, it will turn to a natural color in a few second).

for eye makeup, I use Dior Crayon Eyeliner and Diorshow Waterproof Mascara.

I draw a thick line along my eyelashes on each upper eyelid. Then I connect it to lower eyelid at the outer corner of my eye. I also use it at the inner part of my lower eyelid. I use the same eyeliner to fill my eyebrows.

Now it’s time to set everything in place. This Diorskin Nude Air Invisible Loose Powder does the job perfectly.

I apply my blush after using loose powder, I prefer it this way. I always have this DiorBlush in shade Happy Cherry in my handbag so I can refresh it when it’s necessary ( I love the name by the way).

The last step is lipstick. The color I’m wearing is Dior Rouge Baume number 758. I don’t wear lip liner so whenever I wear a vibrant or really bright color I use a brush to apply it. This helps to create perfect steady line at the edges.

Here I am, ready to party.

Makeup Routine

Hi guys

Today I’m sharing with you my daily makeup routine. Although I love love makeup, I am at a point in my life that prefer simple light makeup. I try to have a routine that does not take much time and my skin benefits from it ( let’s be honest, wearing heavy makeup all day long will at least cause some breakouts). I am picky about products that I use, I only use high quality products that I absolutely love in order to keep my skin healthy. Here are some  items that I use currently.IMG_3894 2

I belive a great base that nourishes my skin is the first step. So  after washing my face I apply moisturizer. Because I usualy don’t use foundation I like to apply a pore reducing moisturizer.

This Dior moisturizer is my favorite. It feels light and breezy on skin yet it reduces pores pretty well. If you have oily skin or oily T-zone (like me) this one is a miracle worker.

The next step which is realy important is eye cream.

I love this Dior eye cream. It is not cheap, but it’s worth every penny. If you have to invest in one skin care product, it must be a great eye cream,especially if you’re over 30 ( although I believe it is never too soon to start using eye cream, this one is a little bit strong for younger people).

Then I get to the make up. I focus on eyes  since it can change the whole look. Just using concealer under my eyes will brighten up my face.

This YSL radiant touch is my all time favorite. It has a soft applier that makes it really easy to use.I have been using this for the last three years and I absoulutely love it. It has really light texture and gives great coverage at the same time.

I continue with drawing a simple thin line on each upper eyelid along eyelashes. Nothing dramatic, just to add definition to my eyes. For that I use Dior eyeliner. It is creamy, long lasting and easy to apply.

Then I apply mascara. This Dior waterproof mascara will give you full long lashes, and stays intact all day long. However if you use waterproof mascara it is really important to use proper product to wipe it off in order to have healthy long lashes. Not every eyemakeup remover is suitable to do the task.

The next step for me is blush. I won’t leave the house without applying it. The right color, will bring your skin to life and give definition to your face.

If you are like me and prefer power blush this Dior blush is perfect.I use the color calls Happy Cherry . It adds a healhty color to my cheeks.

Last step is to apply loose powder. I use Dior skin Nude Air in color medium beige.

I know that it supposed to be used on top of foundation to keep everything in place. However I use it to keep my face oil-free and matte during the day, also I love that it gives some kind of texture to my skin which is not realy visible (if it makes any sense to you). This is the result:

Just keep in mind that we all have different skin types and no one has the perfect skin. The most important thing is to take care of our skin and always be aware of products we use and the influence they have on our skin.
