Although it is still so very, very cold – in February i reached for peach tones, glossy textures and warm neutrals to counteract the dullness and the greyness of my skin. Its been a long winter, don’t even remember how the sun feels like.
Because my skin wasn’t at its best, ive picked the new Lancome Visionnaire foundation (035) to smooth out and cover all my imperfections. It cleverly has a full coverage corrector on its top that covers everything in sight, just warm up a tiny bit on the back of your hand and tap gently the parts that need hiding. The foundation itself, goes smoothly on the skin leaving a dewy, fresh appearance.
Laura Mercier Secret Concealer (in 2) has done a great job to cover my dark circles, amazing creamy consistency and long lasting coverage. I set it with a tiny bit of loose powder to prevent creasing. A great tip for when you are feeling and looking very fatigued is to apply a tiny bit of orange/brick shade lipstick on the blueish parts and then to go over with the concealer. The warm brick shades neutralizes the blue, while the yellow beige concealer will brighten and lighten.
For my eyes ive been using obsessively every day the Smashbox Blue Eyes Smokebox (review here). Naked palettes what?!
Benefit Browzings in Light has contoured and shaped my brows, love the tinted brow wax and the shadow is perfect for my coloring.
My lips were exceptionally dry due to my never ending cold, so Lush Ultrabalm has successfully moisturized and soften in minutes. I like how is quickly absorbed and instantly any chapped bits are soothed. The Clinique SuperBalm in Mango sealed the moisture and added a peach tint to my lips. Love how soft it feels and that its absolutely non sticky.
Butter nail polish in Kerfuffle* completed my fresh spring look, adding a hint of sunshine on my nails. Beautiful colors, free from all the nasty stuff (no formaldehyde, toluene and DBP) and good lasting properties.
And finally, my days were lifted by Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir. Ill be a very sad girl when my sample finishes.
