New beauty staples

Even though we are BB/ CC cream fans, we know that sometimes we have to step up our game. Our dearest friends’ wedding this weekend might be one of those rare occasions. After watching a few (ok, maybe thousads) of beauty tutorials on You Tube we decided to give the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation a try. And we loved it. It matifies the skin but it brightens your complexion at the same time. The finish is absolutely flawless, even more when applied with the Beauty Blender, and it is beautifully longlasting. It has no scent, feels fresh on the skin and blends like heaven. We’ve also heard that it’s the best foundation when you are having your picture taken, so we’ll see if that’s accurate after the wedding!

We’ve introduced another change in our makeup  routine. And it involves colour. Whaaaat??? Yes. We, eternal neutral palette lovers, have been using this creamy,  soft, realy green eye pencil: the Clarins Crayon Khol in Intense Green. It’s brilliantly multitasking: you can use it as eye liner to add a pop of colour to a fresh natural makeup or you can blend it with the natural hair brush applicator and turn it into a sort of cream eye shadow. For a more daring look, I have even used it only under my bottom lashes, leaving my top lashes clear and nude. Not for everyday, but surely fun for one of those days when you feel adventurous (if only makeup-wise).

So these are our Spring / Summer beauty staples. Now we only need the good weather to stay here with us…


    • Hi Suze! I’m really camera shy, but I can assure you that it looks wonderful! If you smudge it it looks kind of sultry. Perfect if you add a litle bit of turquoise for a Summer night look. And if you use it as an eye liner it adds a fun pop of color to a natural morning look. Even for the office!
