I am a makeup freak, I can spend hours in my favorite beauty brands booths, chatting with the sales ladies, asking for tips and information about the products.
I have to buy a new item each month to feel satisfied, you can call me silly but it brings me joy.
With all my love to makeup products, I can not tolerate the heavy makeup, the very dark eyes, the multi layers of concealer, foundation …
I can understand that if a lady has a super important event and she wants to look radiant, she might want to add something different to her makeup routine, but please not the zombie look!
As I’m a practical person, I like to have beauty products that will help enhance my beauty features in a natural way and with easy application.
And what inspired me to write this post is the brand Glossier that is a modern beauty brand that creates essential products designed for real life. Their mantra is “Skin first, Makeup second, Smile always!
Too bad we still don’t have the brand here in Lebanon, but it’s been a while I’m admiring their products.
I’m gonna show you my basic makeup items that I use to give light to my skin, keeping it natural and glowing.
I start with the Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch by Clarins
This is one of my favorite products ever, you just apply it before makeup to wrinkles, fine lines and dilated pores.
With its light texture, it suits all skin types. This wrinkle-smoothing formula leaves an imperceptible veil over the skin’s surface. Your skin becomes even and flawless!
I don’t use it on a daily basis, I like to keep it for special events.
I wait for few minutes and apply the Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base also by Clarins
For a radiant complexion every day, the Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base is a moisturizing base that illuminates and corrects your skin tone, while hydrating and soothing with moisture-rich Katafray Bark extract.
Wait for few minutes to dry and then I apply the Prisme Visage – Color Confetti, radiance enhancer soft compact powder by Givenchy
It’s a light powder that enlightens your face.
Then I apply the Ombre Iridescente eye shadow by Clarins.
It’s a new generation of eye shadows with a shimmery effect. I like the Shade 01 Aquatic rose. It has a powder texture and very easy to apply. When in hurry, I apply it with my 4th finger instead of using a brush.
And a final touch to embellish my eyes is by applying the Noir Couture mascara by Givenchy.
Depending on my mood, I apply one of the three different natural color lipsticks that I’m using this season.
The Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector by Clarins (08 – Plum Shimmer)
Part make-up. Part skincare. One lip-loving formula! All the color-shine of a gloss with treatment benefits your lips will feel good about. Acacia micro-pearls and vegetable waxes nourish, protect, soften and plump. Soothes the senses with a delicate vanilla scent. Wear alone, or top off your lipstick for the glossiest lips around.
The Joli Rouge Brilliant Lipstick by Clarins (15 – Pink Magnolia)
The Joli Rouge Brillant Lipstick provides intense moisture and enhances lips with a subtle shine and sheer finish. This special formula hydrates lips for 6 hours* while providing flexibility, comfort and brightness.
The Art Stick Lipstick by Bobby Brown (A84 Dusty Pink)
This chunky pencil gives you lipstick and liner in one, comfortable wear and a creamy matte finish. Comes with a sharpener to keep the point perfect.
