My daily (ok not always daily) make-up routine

Okay, let’s talk beauty today! Because my last beauty blogs were such a big HIT, I would love to tell you more about my own daily skin and make-up treatment! To share my daily (ok not always daily, but as daily as it can be :-p) make-up routine with you, I have created this special beauty blog. Are you ready to find out my beauty secrets?

“Beauty to me is about feeling comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”

Some of you might know that I joined a 10-day no make-up challenge last month, as I completely support the movement of highlighting inner beauty, happiness, and health. I believe every woman is beautiful the way she is and no make-up can beat that! Although this challenge has motivated me to wear less make-up in daily life and embrace the real me, I still really like to dress up a bit for special occasions. So, I don’t wear make-up every day, but when I do you girls send me the sweetest DM’s and questions about the products I use. Here is what my daily make-up routine looks like..

My Basic Skincare

Step 1: Day cream Lancome with SPF15
Step 2: MAC Pro Longwear powder/pressed – colour: dark
Step 3: Chanel powder blush – colour: nr. 82 reflex
Step 4: MAC Prep + prime transparent finishing powder/pressed (against oily skin)

First of all I want to highlight the fact that I am NOT using any foundation, concealers, highlighters, etc. as this can be rather bad for your skin. If you do have problems with getting a smoother skin then I can again recommend to read this blog post on what you can do (and eat!) to get that ultimate natural glow and a super healthy skin!

“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.”

My Eye Make-up Routine

Step 1: Underneath the eyebrows, on the bone
MAC Matte eye shadow – colour: blanc type matte 2
Step 2: Upper inner lash line
First: MAC Matte eye shadow – colour: blanc type matte 2, second: Anastasia soft glam – colour: orange soda
Step 3: Upper lash line
Anastasia soft glam – colour: burnt orange
Step 4: Upper lash line + eyelid 
Anastasia soft glam – colour: dusty rose
Step 5 : Wings
Anastasia soft glam – colour: cyprus umber
Step 6: Inner corner + lower inner lash line
Anastasia soft glam – colour: glistening
* All Anastasia colours are from the same pallet and need to be blended afterwards
Step 7: Upper lash line (+optional waterline)
MAC eye kohl – colour: teddy
Step 8: Lashes (after curling)
Benefit Beyond Mascara “They’re Real!” – colour: black

On not-so-dpecial-occation-days (read: most of the days :-p) I skip step 1 to 6 and stick to step 7 and 8, as it saves me soooo much time and I don’t feel like I really need it (anymore). Step 1 to 6 I use to set the party vibe!

Extra Care

During the day I use a nourishing lip balm from Elizabeth Arden SPF20 (Eight Hour Cream) and for special occasions I use Lancome l’absolu lacquer – colour: nr. 202. To give my natural look a boost, I paint my eyebrows every 8 weeks, meaning I never use an eye pencil to colour them on a daily basis.

“A smile is the best make-up any woman can wear.”

Well, that was definitely a full list of steps and products! I would really like you to remember though that no make-up product can make you prettier than you already are 😉 Beauty comes from the inside, and as long as you put on your biggest smile and most confident self, you will radiate this to the outer world too!

With love,
Carolina.
