I thank God there were no social media when I was a teenager experimenting with make up. I think I experienced every horror mistake: from the orange fake tan like powder to the wrong foundation color, from the random smokey-eye at 10 am to the extra sticky lipgloss, from the purple eyeshadow to the violet lips – yes, I think I did it all. With lots of fun.
Luckily, no Snapchat screenshot can be used against me.
Growing up I learned a thing or two about make up, especially that it is not only supposed to hide our flaws, but to enhance our beauty. Unless I have to do something special I like to keep it the most natural possible during the week and play with shadows and bold lipstick during the weekend.
Since I suffer from the widespread ‘Gmail tan’ for working too much at my laptop I got to understand the importance of a glowing, even skin. I don’t like heavy foundations though, so I try to keep it simple by using light products with a good coverage but a nice feel on my face.
I recently discoveret Le Teint Encre de Peau, new YSL foundation. I fell in love with it. It is a super light liquid cream that perfectly blends into your skin, leaving it mat, even, velvety soft and hydrated. It’s like a second skin effect: all the benefits of a foundation without the sensation of wearing it.
I tested it and it really lasts long: I applied it at 8am in the morning and after coming back home my skin was still nice and even.
Also, since these years have not passed in vain, here’s my 7 beauty tips for a perfect make up base:
