I am not an avid user of different shades/foundation, I stick to what I know and where my comfort zone is, which is my Armani silk foundation. But when Almay sent me their new Smart Shade to try, I could not resist! Because who wouldn’t want to try a foundation, that adjusts to your skintone? It is not your typical foundation, it almost seems like you are applying a moisturizer that adapts to your skintone, and leaves your complexion looking flawless and natural! This foundation comes only in three shades and no more, all you need to know is where yours skin fits within those, light, light-medium (that’s my shade), medium. I love that this skintone matching makeup, leaves my skin looking natural all day, and doesn’t feel or look like I am wearing a layer of makeup. This is definitely a beauty product I would recommend all year round, which is why I have it in my bag, ready to fly to Barcelona with me;) Because that is where I am headed to today, will keep you all posted on Barcelona my travels and my baby bump;)!
Season’s change and so does our skin, alongside our mood;)! For the past few weeks my skin has been suffering from the cold dry weather therefore it was in dreadful condition, I tried every face cream I have at home, as well as drinking as much water as possible, face masks, etc… Till I got my hands on this Egyptian Magic, and I can say loud and clear this is MAGIC for my skin! All I do is wash my face and put a little magic on my face day and night, and it looks radiant! Besides this amazing find, here are the rest of my beauty obsessions for this month, Jergens BB Body Cream Light , this one is perfection for luminous skin (especially to get an even complexion all over your body)! Rituals Mei Dao Rich Nourishing Body Cream , I have been a loyal user of Rituals body creams, but only recently I started to use this scent, and it is so lovely and subtle, not at all overpowering! I like my make up products subtle as well, so here are my basics such as the ‘Luminous Silk’ Foundation by Armani, and my YSL ROUGE VOLUPTÉ – Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick. On my last trip to New York, I decided to get these NARS beauties;) and am addicted, whenever I want to look fresh and well rested I put on the ‘Soft Touch’ Shadow Pencil, and for full looking lips this NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in mauve pink! Finally this O.P.I. nail polish in Dulce de Leche, to me it’s the perfect spring color to go with any look, and all of my rings;)
Who isn’t addicted to Beauty products? I confess GUILTY (as can be)! Which is why I love finding new products, be it skin products or make up (magical) products. Paul & Joe Beauté is one of my favorite 2014 finds, I have fallen in love with their brand, products, and their packaging is just so beautifully made with unique details. I have been using their Glossy Lip Nude color (Next To Nothing), in my everyday looks, to keep that natural yet glowy look. Or to tone down a bit some of my pink or red lip colors, and I absolutely love it!
Finding a nude color for my lips isn’t easy, as I am pale, and I always feel that nude colors make me look even more pale. For my complexion, this Powder Compact Foundation – Fresh has worked wonders, especially in this freezing cold weather, it doesn’t damage my skin, and adds a soft silky touch to my face.
