You voted for more details about my daily beauty routine in my Insta stories. Thanks for taking part in Insta poll first of all… So here are some details about my beauty routine for you my loves. I usually wake up early in the morning to have a bit more time in the bathroom and to start my day relaxed. Thats always very important for me…
I don’t like using too much make-up and love it more simple. Not only because of a lack of time in the morning, but also to keep my look more fresh and shiny which make you look younger. But usually no Mum has got the time to spend hours in the bathroom in the morning, so I keep it simple, but effective. I’m not really obsessed with staying younger, but when being in your thirtees your skin needs some support to look shiny and healthy. Therefore I use a day and night crème, an eye cream and a retinol crème for the night.
After my skin care products, the base for your look is quite important. So a primer is a good choice here for a long-lasting look. After that apply the foundation, e.g. by Guerlain or By Terry. I love both brands cause they stay and look fresh for hours without looking too cakey. So avoid too many layers here. It’s your decision if you like to apply it with your fingers or with a brush, but my experiences have shown that your make-up will stay longer when using a brush .
Contouring is a big thing currently and I love using highlighters to get a fresh and shiny look. The following products are some that I use and I really recommend:
Keep it simple with your eyes as well. I prefer a soft smokey eye look for which I use warm beige and brown tones (usually by Chanel). For creating smokey eyes I start with the primer that you also used for your Skin and apply it on the lid. It ensures that your make-up will stay much longer. Apply the light tone of the color palette on your lid and then blend a darker shadow from your lashes to the crease of your eye then. Use a brush or your fingers to blend it after that. I usually use the darkest tone of the palette for the evening and when going out to get a more dramatic look.
I’m not a fan of liquid eyeliner and not really good at it, so I use a Kohliner e.g. by Chanel. When it comes to mascara I have to admit that I’ve tested several ones from low to high budget, but my favorite is a cheap drug store one by Max Factor.
Last but not least the eyebrows that are mostly a big issue . Not only because they are never symmetric, but also because of finding the right color for your brows. When being in a hurry, I sometimes just use an eyebrow mascara and I’m definately fine with it. Try it, it works!
My last steps are a shiny gloss and choosing a fragrance for the day. My favorite one currently is the new Chanel Gabrielle, just love it! You can also find it in the slider….
That’s my daily make-up routine my loves. Keep it as simple as possible is what I love. By night, you can choose the darker tones of the palette or add a red lipstick if you want to. Just the way you like it..
