Clarins SOS PRIMER 00

Image
The base / primer perfectly evens skin tone and gives a natural glow. It is worth noting that I wore this makeup all day, nothing rolled anywhere, the pores are not clogged (many primers have this drawback). The primer comes in many shades that can be mixed if you have the skill. I have it base in shade 00.  Easy to apply, particles of shine are visible. Suitable for all skin types, even oily. Although it does not matte, I did not find excessive shine and sebium release. The makeup in the photo above was done with the following means: 1. Base Clarins SOS PRIMER 00 2. DIOR BACKSTAGE 1N foundation 3. Concealer NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer Light 2.5 4. Bronzer MAC Bronzing Powder 5. Blush NYX Pink The Town 15 6. MAC Lightscapade Highlighter 7.

Lip Gloss Natural Lip Perfector

Image
 Bestseller of lip products among buyers, including me. Eclat Minute and Instant Light enhance the natural beauty of the lips while leaving them hydrated, replacing balms and oils, even in the most severe frosts. They also have a pleasant creamy texture and incredible scent. Suitable for sensitive lips.

Day Cream by L'Occitane

Image
 One of the best creams I have tried. In addition to the bright, beloved, peony scent, this cream is famous for its effectiveness. It not only moisturizes the skin almost for the whole day, but also evens out its tone, so using this cream you can safely abandon the tonal base and do only with a corrector.  The cream removes swelling and traces of fatigue, lightens age spots. Despite the high price, it is very profitable to buy this cream, because it is economically consumed. (Such a jar was enough for me for almost a year)

Clarins Hydra-Essential Fluid

Image
 The fluid has a very pleasant texture and smell, it is quickly absorbed, leaving no oily sheen on the face, but does not matte it. Perfectly moisturizes the skin and replenishes the water balance in it. In summer it can be used alone, in winter in combination with a cream / serum. Mainly suitable for normal to combination skin. For oily skin, top it off with a mattifying cream from the My Clarins range to avoid excessive shine. Not suitable for sensitive skin, as it may cause irritation.

How to take care of dry skin❓

Image
 Today our day will be dedicated to caring for dry skin🌝 Dry skin suffers from a lack of moisture and natural grease. 🌾 Causes of dry face: 1. Wrong care program 2. Heredity 3. Dermatitis 🌿General rules for dry skin care: 1. Always wash off makeup before bed and do not rub your skin with a cotton pad. 2. Eliminate cosmetics with retinol and its derivatives 3. Avoid tap water (it is harsh and can cause irritation) 4. Avoid coarse scrubs 5. Alternate between different types of masks 💧Features of dry skin care: 1. In the morning☀️ choose products with SPF, especially during the sunny season. The main emphasis is on moisturizing and protecting from negative environmental factors, so the texture of a day cream can be light and melting. 2. In the evening🌜 the main focus is on thorough cleansing, nutrition and recovery. Be sure to use make-up removers, toner and night cream with a dense and rich texture.

Cream Body Butter Bath & Body Works Into The Night

Image
The body butter has a wonderful persistent scent (raspberry, rose, jasmine, amber, musk, plum, vanilla), moisturizes the skin well, and is better suited for winter, as it has a dense, rich texture. BUT! I do not recommend to use it for the whole body. When I bought it, I did not notice that it had a very strong shine. Butter will look very nice on certain parts of the body, but if you spread it over the entire surface, there is a risk that everything you touch will be in glitter.

Clarins BB Cream

Image
 If your skin is tired of foundations, BB cream is a great substitute for you. It is moisturizing and has a light to medium coverage. The only drawback of this product is the small range of shades and undertones, but this is not a problem if you have a moisturizer with a mousse texture.  Diluting this BB cream with moisturizer you get a light foundation that will adapt to your skin, cover imperfections, but at the same time leave a satin finish and make your skin vibrant and natural. Plus, you'll be ready to summer with it thanks to the SPF in the composition.

Hudabeauty Pastels Lilac palette

Image
 Despite the negative reviews and the disastrous "success" of Huda's collection of pastel palettes, lilac is one of the highest quality. The palette contains 4 satin shades, which are color, not separate glitters, and 5 matte shades, one of which is great for shading or deepening the crease of the eyelid.  The pigmentation is good, as can be seen on the swatch, it is transferred to the eyes normally, does not stick or disappear. All the fuss about these palettes was due to their production in China (large Huda's palettes are made in Italy), but despite the experiences of the beauty community, two of the three palettes were good quality. Sold exclusively at Sephora

Shiseido Waso Eye Opening Essence

Image
 A distinctive feature of this essence is that it contains carrot extract, which is rich in vitamins and minerals. The product cools and moisturizes the skin well. May relieve redness.  The description stated that it removes dark circles and relieves swelling, but, unfortunately, I did not notice this. Also, the concealer is well applied to the essence, nothing rolls off.

Corrector LAMEL for skin blemishes

Image
 An excellent budget corrector, quite dense, I would even say that this is the brother of ShapeTape from TARTE. Does not float into wrinkles and adheres perfectly to the skin. Concealers often refuse to work with foundations from other brands, but this is not the case with LAMEL, it works great with both luxury and budget products. Well worth a try for the price!

What are the best eyeshadow palettes with matte shadows under $50❓

Image
 NATASHA DENONA for $ 10 * If you wanted a versatile palette but were hesitant to buy the MINI NUDE palette from NATASHA DENONA, then you should start with * Revolution Velvet Rose. Of course, you don't need to think about it: 15 shades for $ 10 vs 5 shades for $ 40!  Revolution not only completely repeats the NUDE GLAM colors, but also dilutes them with more basic and deeper shades, which you can use to diversify your makeup. The texture of the eyeshadows is the same creamy, they do not crumble or leave even oily eyelids. see more budget palletes

Hudabeauty pastels rose palette eyeshadows

Image
 The palette has 5 matte pastel shades and 4 toppers. As you can see, pigmentation on swatch differs significantly (for the better) from applying directly to the eyelid. When applied with a brush, the shadows may crumble a little, and in order to achieve at least such pigmentation as in the last photo, you have to cover in several layers and use your finger with point movements. In fact, toppers are best applied with your finger. The most unpigmented shade of this palette is yellow. The most pigmented is brown. Of course, these shadows, like any others, must be used with the base. The bottom line is this: if you love light and casual "makeup without makeup", then this palette is for you.

Clinique Id Gel moisturizer

Image
An innovation in moisturizers. The advantage of this gel is that you select the composition individually for your skin. You can choose from about three bases (one of them BB cream) and about 5 special sticks that contain serum. I have a gel matched to even out the tone of oily skin. A great line to try! It has no smell, but it is very effective. The stick is purchased separately!

Skin care face masks

Image
 1. Jasoyup tea & Blueberry. The mask has a very dense fabric, which is a plus, since enough essence is absorbed into the skin to moisturize and soothe the skin of the face. May roll off when worn. Great for dry and sensitive skin. 2. Green tea & Aloevera. The mask cleanses the skin well (has a cumulative effect), gives it radiance and maintains the hydro-lipid balance of the skin and removes redness. It also has a dense fabric, is quickly absorbed. Suitable for oily and sensitive skin. Remember to use the massage roller for the best effect. Information on how to use it correctly can be found here.

Micellar water Yves Rocher

Image
If you have sensitive skin, this micellar is a godsend for you.  Perfectly removes makeup, both regular and persistent, does not dry the skin, and most importantly does not irritate the mucous membranes, so you can easily wash off your eye makeup.  The only negative is the fast consumption, of course it all depends on how often you use the make-up. It takes me a month for such a bottle. Please note that this micellar water contains PEG-40.

Mario Badescu toner

Image
The toner is advertised as a remedy for all skin types, but in fact, it is not suitable for everyone. It cleanses and moisturizes well, but even on non-sensitive skin it caused slight redness and tingling, so if you have sensitive skin, it is better not to spend money on it.  It smells very nice of rose and herbs, the smell refreshes and invigorates. Dries up inflammation.

Night face mask BEAUTYFIC

Image
 It is a versatile remedy that can be used as a cream or as a mask. The mask lifts the skin and regenerates it, deeply nourishing it. Reduces swelling and redness, preparing your skin for the morning.  The texture of this mask is airy, easy to apply and wash off (if necessary). A pleasant smell that does not disappear in 5 minutes and helps to relax / fall asleep. This mask is suitable for all skin types, does not cause allergies and does not dry out the skin.

How to use massage roller❓

Image
   Use the massage roller while making a fabric mask for the best effect and / or during the day together with a cream to remove puffiness and shape the face contour.

Natasha Denona nude mini eyeshadow

Image
If you have never tried DENONA shadows, but really want - this post is for you. The combination of colors in the palette is suitable for both basic makeup and evening makeup. Satin colors have incredible pigmentation, they act not only as a glitter topper, but have a rich color. The eyeshadow resembles a creamy texture, but is easy to blend and does not stick with spots on the eyelid. The price is fully consistent with the quality. BUT! Better to wait for discounts. Sold only at Sephora

What is the best mascara❓

Image
Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara 4D My favorite among mascaras. It really creates a 4D effect. It gives expressiveness to the look, does not stick eyelashes, the most important thing is that it does not crumble. One of the few mascaras where the name is fully justified. For blondes, the shade 02 perfect brown is suitable, it will look the same as black, just more natural.

Recovering night face mask Clarins

Image
 Night cream mask helps the skin to recover literally overnight. Well moisturizes, nourishes, removes impurities and tightens pores. A pleasant smell helps to fall asleep, and when you wake up in the morning, you will not feel a greasy film on your face. The skin will be soft and velvety.  It can be used daily, as an evening cream, or it can be applied after basic care in a thick layer and after 30 minutes, remove the remnants with a dry napkin.

Patches skin care (Part 2)

Image
 1. Petitfee Collagen & Co Q10 Hydroge They moisturize well, increase elasticity around the eyes, and remove signs of fatigue. They are very comfortable to wear, as they do not slip off the face. 2. Ayoume Collagen + Hyaluronic The patches visibly lighten dark circles under the eyes, perfectly moisturize the skin, the visibility of wrinkles is slightly reduced. If makeup is applied immediately after patches, it may roll off. It is better to wait a little until completely absorbed. 3. Minabao Green Seaweed Firming They can neutralize redness, make the skin more elastic, relieve puffiness and smooth wrinkles. Suitable for sensitive skin.
