Going back in time I remember when I start my journey in the “MakeupLand”, fresh in university, changing city, all by myself and without knowing nobody all I’ve used was foundation, mascara and concealer; just this, was all I needed to hide my insecurities, my dark circles and build confidence from outside. From that moment I’ve made some progress, I’ve experienced and I’ve made mistakes. I’m far away for being a makeup guru, but the time gave me the chance to discover what makeup suits me and my style.
For this cold season I’ve decided to keep my makeup look quite simple and natural, but with a touch of glow. Don’t get me wrong, I love makeup and I always push my boundaries and try to get out of my comfort makeup zone. I opt for this kind of look because is effortless, it doesn’t take more than 5 minutes and besides that it goes amazingly with every outfit that I put on.
To get a boost of hydration I start with applying the MAC prep+prime mist. The formula of this primer is just perfect to set my makeup in place and to get my skin the natural finish I aim and need this season.
After I let the mist to sink in my skin I continue by putting on the Giorgio Armani luminous silk foundation, this is one of my all-time favorite foundation because it’s lightweight on my skin, has a medium to high coverage and is buildable. But what I love the most about this foundation is the beautiful luminous texture that gives to my look.
Finishing with my foundation I use the Les Beiges bronzer from Chanel on my chicks and forehead to a quick conture to my face. I use it in the shade Medium Deep, a shade slightly darker than my complexion, it has like a subtle touch of glow that I really enjoy. I brush my brows in the direction hair growth where and fill it where I need it with the Chanel Crayon Sourcils Sculpting in the shade Brun Naturel, this way I make certain that my brown look is still natural without overdoing it.
Because I’m a sucker for that glow I put on my cheeks my greatest and new discovery in the highlighter range: the Iconic London illuminator in the Original shade. This product is everything, with the just tiniest amount you have so much more. To apply it I just use my fingers with a tap motion: it gets it done amazingly.
The product that for me is a must every time I put makeup on and I think that is for all of you out there is mascara. I get with just using one coat of YSL Vinyl Couture mascara, in the shade 01 I’m the Clash, for perfect impact volume and sophisticated eyelashes look. If I want a more dramatic look I use a second coat of mascara after the first coat it got dry.
To finish my look I get in with my favorite lip combo: I contour my lips with the MAC lip liner in the shade Spice, and fill them for a more time engaging lips; after I apply Tom Ford Ultra Rich lipstick in the shade Revolve Around Me, a very hydrating lipstick that feels velvety on the lips for a long time and the color is just perfect for my everyday look.
For me this is a flawless perfect everyday makeup look, not dramatic, very simple, natural with a subtle touch of glow because my skin in this cold season it loses that natural shine and the products like below it helps a lot to correct that. What are the beauty products that you use the most this time of the year?
