Hey Everyone,

I've been meaning to talk make up for some time now, so I'd like to take this opportunity to talk about some of my current favorites. 

FACE: As I have mentioned before, I am not a big fan of foundation, it just makes me feel like I have a mask on. In stead, I like to use blush or bronzer and a face highlighter. This particular one from Chanel in Brume D'or is my current obsession, because it provides really natural color, with just a hint of sparkle. I also love this shimmering powder from Christian Dior. Usually, I mix all shades together with a big brush and apply it on the apples of my cheeks, then use the lightest shade to highlight brow bones and corners of the eyes. This combination really helps to brighten the face without looking like you have a ton of product on.  

EYES: I hardly ever wear eye shadow, especially during the day. Most of the time I line the upper eyelid with black eye liner, mostly because my eyes are pretty round so the liner helps to elongate the shape. Right now, I'm a pretty big fan of this Christian Dior one. Stays on all day and doesn't smudge, what else can I ask for:)?

Lips: I've heard a million times that there is a right shade of red for everyone out there. But up until recently I haven't been able to find the right one for me. No matter what I tried it just looked weird, either too dark, or way to bright, basically it just didn't feel like me. By chance, I tried this lip stain by YSL and was pretty impressed with the result, great color, stays on and has a hint of gloss. My day-time favorite at the moment is YSL lipstick in Spicy Pink, really natural, soft-looking shade that has a great staying power. 

I suppose the word "natural" keeps coming up whenever I talk about make up. I really am a big believer in beauty products doing what their are supposed to without looking too obvious. So, I think I choose most make up products on the basis of that, red lipstick and black liner of course being the exception:)

Hi, thanks for your suggestions! I noticed when looking to purchase the YSL lipstick in spicy pink, the color online is more of a dark plum compared to the one shown here. Is that the color you are applying in this post? Thanks, it looks like an amazing lipstick color!

You remind me a lot of myself. I have never worn foundation. I feel like most girls don't need foundation. And I hardly ever wear eye shadows. The less the better

Now you gotta do a post about what your morning/bedtime face routine is! Your natural skin is so beautiful! I prefer the natural look, but have a terrible time figuring out what cleanser/moisturizer etc. to use regularly. Ps, I love your style, your blog is one of the very few I follow.

Loving the YSL lipstick, compliments everything so perfectly
