Hey lovelies, I got some new goodies and excited to share. Let’s start off with the La Mer sample I got in the Neiman’s bag. First off La Mer smells amazing, and it is a thicker consistency, but I love it. It reminds me of the Nivea creme in the blue container, and does smell similar. Obviously, La Mer has active ingredients that differ from Nivea, and I love the glow it gives my skin. Definitely worth the splurge if you can. I let the moisturizer sink into my skin, and actually waited about an hour before I applied my foundation.
Before I apply foundation, I apply Chanel’s Soleil Tan De Chanel. This product is new to me and I love the glow it gives my skin. I’m on the pale side, so I apply a light layer and extend down to my neck. If you haven’t tried it, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the healthy glow, that says, “I just returned from St Bart’s.”
For foundation, I decided to try something new. I applied a light layer of Estée Lauder double wear makeup in 1N2 Ecru. This is my first time using this makeup and I love it. A little goes a long way and it’s great when you plan to take a lot of pictures for the holidays- because it has amazing coverage. So far this foundation does not disappoint.
For blush, I’m loving Chanel Joues Contraste color #55 In Love. This color is a peachy pink that has great pigmentation and requires little off of the brush to give you a flush of color that looks healthy and vibrant.
Another new product to me is rhe Becca Shimering Skin Perfector Liquid in Champagne Pop- a little goes a long way and I apply between my brows, down the center of my nose, down the top of my cheekbones, and of course across the top of my Cupid’s bow. Then I used a fan brush to dust the same color Pressed powder to set the liquid formula.
For eyes I did a basic smokey eye with Chanel eyeshadow in Tisse Essential, Chanel Stylist Yeux Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner in Pomme de Pin, and topped off my lashes with Chanel Le Volume De Chanel Mascara in Noir. You can find this set, “Look Sharp Eye Set” at Neiman Marcus.
For brows, I used a simple pencil I keep in my kit from e Essence. I found this line at Target and they make great basics.
Lastly, I used Kevin Aucoin’s Flesh Tone Lip pencil and topped off my lips with a beautiful matte liquid Lipstick in Suzy by Chantecaille.
I love this glowing, every day glam look.
Let me know in the comments what your favorite products are right now!
I am throwing it back to the 90’s. I loved the style and aesthetic of 90’s models. As a pre-teen- teen in the late 90’s I practiced my makeup and hairstyles to emulate these beauties. Torn from the pages of Elle and Vogue, I plastered my walls with models- my faves: Laetitia Casta, Helena Christensen, and Ester Canadas.
I love a good Snap filter. The beautifying filter is so gratifying. I’m not a fan of the animal or character filters, but I love the crowns of florals, or golden, twinkling butterflies. So, I thought I would share some of my fave snaps of myself, and if you want to find me on Snap Chat, you can find me under maggie_john.
