Belle du jour

February 10, 2012

Make-up details: 
Maybelline FIT Me foundation in shade 110 
(worn over L'Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Face Cream)
Maybelline FIT Me powder in shade 110
Make Up For Ever Lift concealer in Pink Beige
L'Oréal eye shadow and eye liner
Urban Decay Big Fatty Waterproof Mascara
Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Plumping Treatment in Sheer Blush

I am not one of those women who can go out with no make-up at all and still look and feel gorgeous (but I am on the way, thanks to these guys). In the meanwhile, this is the very minimum I have to wear every day (minus the eye liner). This is how you'll see me when I am dropping off my baby cousins at school, or running to the grocery store because I'm baking something and just realized I'm out of eggs.

I bought the Maybelline foundation and powder just to try them, but frankly, I am very satisfied. Not only do they provide the full coverage I need, but the match is simply the most perfect I've had yet (and I've spent fortunes on department store brands that still didn't match), and the make-up lasts until I wash my face.
I've always been told that my eyes were my best asset, so I've always liked enhancing them with very black mascara. I was blessed with long, full eyelashes (yes, I've never worn fakies... Although I've tried once (understand: "two hours before prom"), and it was a disaster where I pulled out some of my real lashes. Never. Again.
As to my lips, I like to use an inflating lip gloss to give them a little more volume. I think they're slightly too small unless I pout, but well, I can't remember to pout all the time. But the product I use ALL the time is the Rosebud Salve. It's among my all-time favourites.

In a few days, I will be showing my make-up collection, then later on my hair care essentials, since many of you have enjoyed my jewelry closet tour.

Meanwhile, tell me what are your basic products! I'm eager to hear!

You look really good with so little make up ;)) I usually have a problem with my lashes, as a blonde I have really bright color, so I just have to put some mascara on.
I must say I really loved your comment and the fact that you actually read the note! Would you visit me again someday?

Gorgeous!!Good that you like Maybelline foundation.I have purchased their Satin Liquid foundation and found that it made my face red and quite dry(I have combination/Oily skin).Now I mix the Clarins Flash Balm and a bit of Shiseido Primer and the results are far better.
