I get up early in the morning, I'm the morning person. I love peace and solitude while I drink my first cup of hot tea. I use this time for my morning facial skin care routine because that is what it takes for make-up to look immaculate, natural and glowing.
Since skin is a prerequisite for every further step, so my bag conceals Novexpert soothing tonic with Hyaluronic Acid. This mist is ideal for a variety of skin care stages - before applying makeup, during the day for repair and refreshment, as well as after facial cleansing as additional hydration. Hyaluron, aloe vera, probiotic properties keep the skin fresh and make-up shiny and longwearing.
If something can refresh your face in a second, it's a combination of two make-up products - concealers and blushes. The gorgeous Jane Iredale Elighten Concealer is applied to the under eye, and with its shade it neutralizes the color, gray and brown spots, thus brightening the area and making the face more awake. It's creamy in texture, easy to apply with your fingers, and easy to blend. If you have a habit of wearing a loose powder or a compact powder with you in the bag, you can set it, but I do not have that habit when I'm on the move, besides, I love the fresh, natural look when it comes to skin.
The second part of this refreshing duo is a blush that gives a youthful appearance to the skin, and in my case it's all about Giorgio Armani's Neo Nude A-line liquid blush. This blush may be from a limited collection, but that should not stop you to go out and get liquid or creamy blushes. I am a big fan of both options. Cream and fluid blushes blend with skin in a natural way. You seem to be naturally flushed, as if you were very laughing and as if you had a good night sleep. Excellent! In this video tutorial, you can see exactly what blush is all about and what kind of effect it gives.
My skin is in love with my La Prairie Cushion Powder, which I have already wrote about. You can read this in depth, detailed review right here. I'm just delighted with its coverage, long-lasting freshness and easy-to-use form. There is also this packaging that contains a large mirror and application sponge, great for on the go!
To keep your lips fresh, well-groomed and well-timed, there's CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Lip Balm Light-colored lip balm.It gives me hydration, natural luster and just a splash of gentle pink color that perfectly matched the natural color of my lips.
To end there is my current favorite smell - Byredo Gypsy Water. Amber, sandalwood with fresh citrus smell can pick up every day. This perfume is ideal for day and night combinations and can be worn on various occasions.
