This month, on my very much rotating beauty table.
One of the most often asked questions I get is probably what beauty products I am currently using. Of course I am no expert in this area, but I would say I am quite particular choosing my products. Let me introduce to you a monthly overview of my current favorites, starting with:
L’eau de Chloé perfumed bubbles
Origins ginger souffle whipped body cream
Yves Saint Laurent (or is it Saint Laurent Paris?) Touche Éclat 2
Chanel Le Vernis in April, May and June
Ok, I am in NO way a make-up expert and I like things very very natural, but every now and then I discover this new product that I then super overuse until the bottle/package is more than empty. My beauty favs at the moment are Garnier BB Cream – that cream is like a miracle in a bottle, ever since I started using this back in June, I stopped using foundation and got so many people asking me if I just came back from a holiday. MAC Mineralize Blush in Early Morning – I used to use Blush Baby, but replaced it with this limited edition color (I have a weakness for l.e. stuff). And Guerlain Terracotta in A Sweep of Sunlight, - I can tell you it literally is ‘a sweep of sunlight’ on your face.
MAC mineralize skinfinish natural powder in medium, MAC bronzing powder in refined golden, MAC kabuki brush 182, MAC mineralize skinfinish in brunette, MAC powder brush 129sh, Lancôme hypnôse mascara.
It’s funny that one of my readers emailed me asking me about my make-up routine and products for summer, while I was already preparing a post about that. I started using make-up when I was around 13 (just mascara, nothing really special) and I have tried tons of different brands ever since. From Chanel to cheaper brands, nothing really suited me as well as MAC does. I have been hooked to that brand for a couple of years now.
I just want to show you the products and colors I use on a daily basis. It’s not that I’m recommending these colors to anyone else, since everybody has their own favourite colors that match their skintone.
I have to be honest about the mascara though, I don’t always use this one, I just buy whatever’s on sale in the local drugstore. However, I like this one a lot. I usually also use foundation, but not during summer when I’m already tanned.
ps/ Just to be clear, I am not getting sponsored by MAC in any possible way, I just like their products a LOT.
