Bonjour! It’s been awhile since I’ve updated. A lot has happened between my last post and now: I moved into a new house, my best friend from Washington visited me and we went to Vegas, I went to San Diego to see my sister, then went to Pasadena for a concert, and now my last year of college has started. Whew! I thought I’d start the school year off with an overview of my daily makeup routine. I’ve been using most of these products for awhile now with the exception of the Armani perfume (which smells amazing) and the Mario Badescu facial spray (which I got from Urban Outfitters today to soothe my super-dry skin!). I’ll review the facial spray as soon as I use it. But these are my favorite products and I can tell you they’re all amazing! Yes, some are “luxury” items, but I find that when it comes to makeup, it’s worth it for me to spend a little more to get great quality. I don’t always use EVERY one of these products at once, but for the most part, this is what makes up my daily routine! I go for a “French” look which is pretty natural, so these are my ultimate favorite products:
The YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation: So lightweight and natural (light coverage) it looks like YOUR SKIN. Yesss. I don’t like the “cakey” look; I keep it dewy and fresh. Plus the scent is very pretty and refreshing!
Embryolisse Lait Crème Concentre: I use this as a moisturizer/primer. It is a miracle cream, truly. It’s thick so don’t use too much, but it makes your makeup look beautiful.
Cream Blush: I don’t actually use the Stila cream blush yet–I am probably going to buy it eventually. Right now I use an ELF cream blush stick that does the job! To me, cream blush is the best way to maintain a dewy look and a little goes a really long way. Don’t overdo it though!
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara: Just some mascara on the top lashes (and maybe a bit of eyeliner) give a doe-eyed, French-look that I really love. I’m reading a book called “How to be Parisian Wherever You Are” by Anne Berest and her three girlfriends and they absolutely emphasize the Parisienne’s love for mascara!
Hope this helped.
