Rosy cheeks and red lips

Chocolate and Clarins are my biggest addictions, so when I saw that the Sephora next to my mum’s house was having a clearance I run. Fast. I’ve had my eye in these two items for a while. Did I need them? No. That’s why I only got them when the price was pretty reduced. I chose the Blush Prodige Illuminating Cheek Colour in the shade Soft Peach. While the name suggests coral undertones and reminds you of a Summery colour, the truth is quite different. It’s a sheer pink that gives you subtle healthy rosy cheeks, which in my opinion is the epitome of Wintery makeup. This small blush palette has different shades that combine perfectly to achieve a really natural yet radiant result. The lipstick it’s not so natural. In fact it’s a pretty bright red. It’s from the Clarins’ Rouge Eclat collection, which we discovered last Autumn. If you read this post, you’ll now that the shade Strawberry sorbet has become our absolute favourite. It’s ridiculously nourishing and  looks beautiful on the lips. Well, …

Our “no make up” make up

We usually don’t wear foundation. On a daily basis we really like to sleep a little bit more, have a nice shower and a good breakfast before heading to work. That’s why we like to keep our make up simple and fresh. Yes, we are great fans of the “no make up” make up. We discovered L’Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream by pure chance but we loved it the minute we tryed it. It makes your skin looks FLAWLESS. Really, it’s way better that other pricey BB creams and light foundations. And it’s super easy to apply! It gives you an amazing natural glow. After a year enjoying its benefits we were really happy to try the brand new products of the Nude Magique line: the BB Powder and the BB Blush. And we weren’t disappointed at all! The blush has a velvety texture that we just love and, again, it’s very easy to apply. You can start with a little amount and work from there to get the perfect light flushed-by-crispy-Autumn-air cheeks. The powder is …

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 …
