As a beauty fanatic I get butterflies in my stomach when I see beautiful makeup. I’m definitely a fan of attractive cases and packages. It’s like judging a book by its cover, with emphasis on judging. It’s like a kid in a candy store, like using lipstick as a little girl from your mother who said not too use it.
Let’s start with my number one, Chanel. From all the brands I used is Chanel definitely worth the prize. Everything is just perfect: the package, the quality, the structure and its non-chemical smell. The pigment has a good pigment and stays perfect during my day. Even when I don’t use it for a while, it ‘’doesn’t get old’’ like drying up. I also love the classic look. Black with a touch of gold and the white logo. So simple, yet so sophisticated.
The second brand on my list, Estee Lauder. I love the lipsticks of this brand. The pigment is perfect and goes smoothly over my lips. It’s also long lasting; I only do a touch up during my day. To see if I don’t have it on my teeth. Imagine smiling to your office crush with lipstick stains on your teeth, such horror! What I also like from this brand, is their beauty products. The Night Repair makes my skin soft and moisturize my skin perfectly. The Day Wear moisturizer gives a tint when you apply it. It’s like it melts into the shade of your own skin color when you use it. Quite impressive! I use it for a touch up or when I see dry places on my face to blend it in with the rest of my makeup.
Last but definitely not the least, Dior. J’adore Dior! To me this brand comes close to Chanel. Together with Chanel I call these brands the ‘’grownups brand.’’ The older I get, the more I treat myself with high-end quality products. Not that there is something wrong with drugstore brands, I’m an addict for those too! I mean it more as treating myself in a selfcare way. I’m obsessed with their perfumes; Dior Poison is my favorite. It has an oriental floral scent that makes you feel you’re wandering in Tokyo in a blossom forest. Like a fairytale! As you can see Loves, my color is pink red. I feel it comes close to my natural lip color. Even though I love makeup, I keep my daily makeup routine simple. When I do feel like let’s step it up a bit, I add eyeshadow and an eyeliner, a highlighter and instead of a BB cream I use a foundation. Writing about eyeshadow; a Dior eyeshadow palette is on my wish list. I know, I can’t help myself! Hihi…
What is your favorite high-end brand?

I’m back Loves, I missed blogging so much. On my Instagram I told you the reason why and I’m happy to see you wished me a welcome back. I appreciated it a lot! I’m going to focus on my blog because during my ‘’sabbatical’’ I have been inspired to work on upcoming blogposts. First blogpost that popped in my mind is a beauty look. I haven’t done one for a while, it felt good to play with makeup for a full cover look. Especially when I kept my makeup simple during my college days.
Let’s get right into it Loves. After I rinsed my face with lukewarm water I applied Farsáli Rose Gold Elixir 24K infused beauty oil. Such a mouth full, but it works heavenly! It has a sweet peachy smell and it moistures very well. Then I used Essence Anti Redness Colour Correcting liquid concealer. I used it to blemish my impurities, it’s a truly holy grail because it neutralizes redness. The foundation that I used after the green concealer is, KIKO Milano in shade Cool Rose #20. For a sun kissed glow I used Lancaster Infinite Bronzer in #001. Not only it has a 15 SPF, it feels like luxury on my skin. Also, a plus: the smell. I also contoured my face like I did here. Since I’m having the hang of it, I enjoy when I do a good contour. I used Primark PS Contour Shade Crayon paired with Essence Stay All Day Long Lasting concealer to highlight the parts I wanted highlighted. On my cheeks I used Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in shade Medium 2. I used a little bit just to add more volume to the sun kissed glow. On my cheekbones I used KIKO Milano Glow Fusion powder highlighter in #02. Also, a little bit because I don’t want to dominate the glow. I also used ICONIC London Illuminator in shade Original to have that warm glow you always get when you visited the beach.
For my moving eyelids I used first L’Oréal Paris eyeshadow in shade Pop #410. From the middle to the outside ends, I used L’Oréal Paris eyeshadow in shade Smoky #306. I also used it on the inner corners of my eyes for an open look. On top of my eyelids and under my eyebrows I used H&M eyeshadow in shade All White Already to finish the open look. For eyeliner wings I used MAC Modern Twist Kajal liner in shade Cat’s Meow. For my eyelashes I used Primark PS Amplif-Eyed mascara. I love the brush of this mascara, it’s covers all my small lashes perfectly. To tame my eyebrows, I used Tweezerman Transparent Brow Mousse.
Now comes the cherry on top of the pie. I used on my lips Christian Dior Rouge in shade Rose Rose #568. I love this shade because it comes close to my natural lip colour.
Tell me your thoughts about this look Loves. Happy to read them, I missed it a lot!
