Dear readers! I’m back. It’s been a hell living in an apartment with less light than I’m used to – I can’t take pictures when I want and that’s how this blog had a bit of a delay. I had a Valentine’s day post planned but my life shook me so here I am now. The year of 2018 hasn’t started very well, although I keep pushing myself with my exams and essays to be written when needed. Got some great grades, so I’m really proud of myself.
I started 2018 with some ready for the spring new makeup! (I can’t wait for it too). I couldn’t live without these 6 products that make me fresh and ready for everyday. A quick fix ‘tween lunchtime and some refresh and bolder lips at the end of the day when doing to dinner.
God forbid I forget my little makeup bag somewhere 🙂 Starting with the basics: winter skins needs special care! How do you deal with super cold weather this time of the year? Personally I hydrate my skin more, using Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 and lock it with my best Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream.
After that, I apply a generous amount of the new Bourjois Healthy Mix BB cream in shade 01 – Light. It’s perfect for my skin. Nourishing, with C, A, B5 and E vitamin makes your skin fresh and healthy. Just a light shade of colour covers your tiredness in seconds. I love all the new Bourjois range of Healthy Mix Complexion products.
Next is my new little friend from Sephora: NARS concealer in Light2- Vanilla. Mine is a travel size just for the first time. I love how Sephora offers minis so you can try a product a bit longer than any other testers. If you are reading DoraWard you know I’m a NARSissist. This concealer is just the cherry on top of my collection. My dream would be working with them sometimes. The concealer itself is really full coverage, a bit creamy but suitable to all skin types. It’s perfect for covering anything pollution or these low temperatures cause (redness, spots,..). Cannot recommend it enough. Really worth the money.
My dearest friend got me Pupa Vamp mascara for my birthday and I tried it only recently. How wrong I was about this mascara. It’s all you need these days. Doesn’t give you a full false lashes look, but it turns out really natural, healthy look-y. Caring it in my purse all the time. Lashes are my killin’ point.
On top of that, a big old black Amy-style liner comes so handy. If you want to be more natural at work, apply it in the evening when you go out to a dinner or a drink (or two). My favourite is L’Oreal Paradise Extatic kajal. Feels like I’m a Turkish sultana:) It’ really creamy, you can smudge it out a bit, and it’s long lasting. Some cool weather can’t ruin it for sure.
Last: lips. Don’t forget your nourishing balm at first. After that, I’m using Benefit They’re real Double the Lip lipstick during the day. This super fun lipstick is made out of two colours to really make your lips fuller naturally. I’m using Lusty Rose shade. Two shades in one – a liner and a lipstick. I must say it isn’t really a long lasting one, but it’s so fun to apply it I actually don’t mind. In the evening, my best choice is Charlotte Tilbury Very Victoria matte lipstick. Looks perfectly with the L’Oreal kajal mentioned above. It’s creamy at first, but later turns matte and lasts forever. Must say, Charlotte Tilbury never disappoints. NEVER.
