Clinique Makeup: Blue Smokey Eyes

Blue Smokey Eyes

I Rarely Wear Makeup

I don’t know how to put on makeup. And with laziness, I have difficulty learning! My obsession is more about the care of the skin and hair. Then I met the talented Aïcha, the makeup expert of Clinique Belgium who created a tailored made make-up for me. For day and night, discreet, nomadic and glam! And I love it!

To help you here are the products used (above photomontage):  Photo 1, the blush: Cheek Pop. And the concealer: Airbrush Concealer. Photo 2, the eye shadows: All About Shadow Squad. The eye pencil: High Impact Custom Black Kajal Noir Sur Mesure Impact Optimal (couleur bleue). The mascara: High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara. The lipstick: Clinique Pop Matte Lip Colour + Primer.

As we all have different skins, I recommend you adapt the colors to your skin tone (complexion, blush, lipstick). Have fun and keep it simple!

My Fall Routine: Makeup, Fragrances And Nails

Beauty-Make-up-Perfume-Nails-My-Fall-Routine-Estée-Lauder-Rituals-Lilu-For-Mademoiselle-Le-K-Photo ©Mademoiselle Le K

Already Fall And Soon Winter …

No way to store my “Summer” makeup: warm shades declination of brown, peach and pink. Whatever the season, these pallets blend perfectly with my skin color (veering beige-olive in winter! Help!).  

Photo A. The Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess sun bronzer, a revelation for my skin sometimes combination, sometimes dry. This powder matifies the excess of sebum. And so I don’t have the stress of “shine brightly” (LOL!). As a light veil that enhances my complexion, I recommend to put very little.

B. The Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Shimmering Nudes Eyeshadow Palette. Subtle shadows to work on textures with 5 nude colors and 3 metallic (I apply in the evening, because I like to be very makeup). I use in the brown nude shade for discreet smokey eyes in daytime.

C. My first Rituals palette for complexion: the Sunglow Peach natural shimmer powder. I use the white shade on the eyelids (alone or before a yellow shadow to densify it). And pink and peach colors on the cheeks for a healthy glow.

D. True, I love this awesome clutch of Lilu for Mademoiselle Le K as a chic accessory to match with everything. Effortless style. For sale on this blog.

Scents, Lipsticks And Mascara

E. The Irresistible Iris Bleu & Iris Blanc Eau de Toilette of L’Occitane. It’s always a pleasure to discover some of their products. It reminds me the Provence (in the South of france), with wispy gay notes that you keep in mind. To use with the Iris Bleu & Iris Blanc Shower Gel (H) that makes the skin soft.

F. With L’Occitane Jenipapo Perfume Oil, I say goodbye to the awful weather and welcome Brazil! Because the Jenipapo is a tree from Brazil. I regret that the greedy smell of this perfume oil is so discreet!

G. 1. My STAR product: the Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Shimmering Nudes – Pure Color’ All-Over Illuminator is just fantastic. I use it for absolutely everything: as a lipstick, blush, eyeshadow and optionally (lol) complexion illuminator! Silky texture, beautiful iridescent color, it brings a touch of light and sophistication.

2. The M.A.C. In Extrem Dimension Lash mascara makes a mesmerizing glamorous look. I do like its texture which adds volume and lengthens lashes, and the feminine shape of its container. 6. The M.A.C. Extended Play Lash has a texture much lighter than the In Extrem Dimension Lash. For those who like the “natural”.

3. If you have dry lips, I recommend the MAC Prep + Prime Lip. I apply this colorless base under lipstick for a better outfit. 4. Another primer, but for eyelash: the Estée Lauder Little Black Primer.

5. My first mineral lip gloss, Jane Iredale Lip Fixation. A very good product composed of a lipstick and a gloss.

Donatella, Nails And Hands

I. Yes to the nude color, Barefoot in Barcelona of O.P.I!

J. Donatella Versace rocks! She’s beautiful on this picture for the last Givenchy campaign! She transcends the lens of camera by her strength! Both strong, fragile and in extreme … So far from the ambient blandness! Viva Donatella! Plus the excellent eye makeup. A tutorial?

K. I was already addicted to Weleda body oils, now I can add the Pomegranate Regenerating Hand Cream, for soft hands such a baby!

L. I know summer is far … but I keep my favorite nail polish I renamed “All that glitters is gold!” : the Estée Lauder Pure Color Nouveau Riche.

And you, what your makeup and perfumes routine this fall?

My Spring Beauty Routine: Face, Body And Hair

Face Brush And Anti-aging Cosmetics

It’s spring again, the cherry trees are in bloom! Happy spring! I really want to share with you my routine beauty of spring!

1. For nearly two months I used every other day, before going to bed, brush the famous face of the American brand Clarisonic. I have a very sensitive skin and my dermatologist is against any water washing on face. But I enjoy it in spring and summer, it gives me the feeling of having an ultra clean skin. So I use my brush with very soft bristles, for 60 seconds (there is a timer) after removing makeup. I finished the cleasing step with The Uriage Thermal Water and I apply the Darphin Revitalizing Oil.

2. My daily care. As you know, I’m a hugh fan of the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum & Revitalizing Supreme! Besides, this is one of my most read posts! This time I tested the Estée Lauder Resilience Lift Firming/Sculpting Face And Neck and the Estée Lauder Resilience Lift Firming Sculpting Eye CremeTwo very good creams with a really pleasant texture to apply on the skin (a treat): the face cream is slightly pearly and has a SPF15 filter. For the eye zone, very little product is enough. These two cares deeply nourish my skin and give a beautiful complexion. This is exactly what I need in spring … when my skin doesn’t shine like a sardine yet, LOL!

3. I like to combine cosmetics with trips, often to destinations I wish to visit. Recently, I add to my beauty routine the Bioeffect ECF Serum, powerful wrinkle reducer from Iceland that contains no preservative, no fragrance and no dye. I apply it only in the evening, on clean skin for optimal moisturises. Great texture, it quickly penetrates. I will update this post in a few weeks to give you the results of my test. I can not wait to see the effects …

Hair Care And Makeup

Hair, LOL! Could it possible that I’ve finally found the right routine? Abracadabra!

1. For all those with ultra dry curly or frizzy hair (by nature or damaged by chemical treatment), I tested three products in the excellent HyfraR’Force range of the French brand Farida b for nearly two months. My two favorite treatments based on vegetable oils (Ximenia and Amaranth, formulated without paraben), are the Masque Restructurant de Jour (daytime mask) and Masque Revitalisant de Nuit (night mask).

For each mask, I apply the product on wet hair after the Shampoing Restructurant (a gentle shampoo silicone and paraben free). And I leave the mask (sometimes I add oil) as a leave-in conditioner during a day (no more) and then I rinse. Hair is really relaxed, soft and shiny! What a great pleasure!

2. To stimulate the growth of my hair which has suffered this winter (massive breakage of lengths). I take the Oenobiol dietary supplement for fortifying the hair and nails, Capillaire Fortifiant Beauté des cheveux et ongles for over a month. This product contains vegetable cystine (amino acid), B vitamins (including Biotin), copper, zinc and bilberry extract. The treatment lasts three months, with two pills a day.  

3. A silver eyeshadow for evening summer, it’s just WOW! The M.A.C. Mineralize Eye Shadow de M.A.C. has two shades, silver and glittery silver for a glamorous look. My current must have is the Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil. Great nuance: for the first time, I use a dark brown for my smoky eyes! I also tried the Estée Lauder Little Black Primer. I find it not enough thick as a masacara. I prefer to use it as a base before applying denser mascara, for a longer hold.

Body and Nails

1. yes, I’m addicted to Nail polish, especially in summer! I change colour almost every day! Among my recent discoveries, the excellent Pronails, a Belgian brand. Here is a vibrant red that will make my spring-summer: the No. 345, Detonate Vie!  

2. A “Traveler” format for these nail polish! A mix that I enjoy a lot, fingernails in natural colour (nude, beige or taupe) and bright red feet: Amber Stone (9443) and Ruby Red (2581) of Rituals.

3. Also at Rituals, I really liked the delicious body cleansing foam, Yogi Flow and the Hammam Body Mud (a Rasul scrub), its Eucalyptus strong smell has a tonic effect on my mood! Both products cleanse without stripping, making the skin soft as silk.

And what about you? Let me know your spring beauty routine! What your fav products right now? Give me some ideas for my next tests!
