The most helpful concealers

We have dark circles. Even more on Monday mornings. And if we have any important meeting, nice trip or super photographed event, then we will have a pimple or two. And some redness around the nose. That’s why you’ll always find some kind of concealer in our make up bag. We’ve put together a list of our favorite weapons against tired faces and small imperfections: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer: this has been the last addition to our concealer stock. After reading so many wonderful reviews about it we finally give in. The super creamy formula gives a medium to high coverage but a little bit goes a long way. With a tiny amount of product you’ll have a much brighter complexion and, as the name suggests, your face will look radiant. It’s very important, though, that you blend it really well. I like to apply it under my eyes drawing an inverted triangle and blend away to make my eyes look brighter and more awake. Just be careful and don’t overdo it! YSL Touch Éclat: this is the only product we will …

Xmas series: what a girly girl wants.

In the next few days we are going to post some little gift guides to help you find nice presents for your loved ones. Today we will start with the girls. Everyone knows a girly girl. It can be your niece, your cousin, your sister, your best friend, your girlfriend or yourself! Finding a great gift for these girls is usually super easy!

There are a few things girlier than a Benefit product. This kit has some of the bestsellers from Benefit. It’s just great. 4. Almond oil for perfect skin.

You make my day

Last Thursday was terrible. Lots of problems at work, bad news everywhere… I was feeling sad, nervous and furious. So I decided that I had to do something to change my mood and went to that place where everything is beautiful, quiet, smells nice and where everyone is kind with you: the beauty department of a big department store. And they made my day, just as I knew they would. I needed a new blush (I always wear blush, can’t live without it) so I headed to the Benefit corner. A very nice lady tried some of their products on me and immediately I started to feel more relaxed and calmed down. In just five minutes I was leaving the store happy, revitalized and my faith in human nature was restored. I doubted a little bit, but finally I chose Hervana, a light beautiful blush. It has four different shades that combined make my cheeks rosy and enhance the effect of the lovely crispy cold Autumn air on my face. I love it! I would …
