A great liner is part of my daily routine, a routine that has shrunk down to 5 min after becoming a mum. One personal favourite in the jungle of products out there is this art pen by Dior, it lasts all day and last but not least, the most unskilled make-up hands can apply it, super easy! Yours for £23 and you’ll find it here.
Nipple balm aka Lanolin for your lips? (Breastfeeding flashbacks anyone?) Best balm I’ve ever tried for chapped lips and works on everything from dry skin areas, cuticles to a make-up booster. 100% pure medical grade Lanolin, fragrance free and worth every penny. Dr. Lipp is yours for £11.50 and you’ll find it here.
Having your beauty sleep interrupted by a hungry baby screaming way too early every morning surely does nothing good for your mirror reflection, and certainly not for the eye area. These two products have helped me to reduce puffy eyes these last 2 months along with litres of water, thumbs up!
I’m a huge fan of strong fully eyebrows ala Cara Delivigne and Arizona Muse but most of us need a little help to achieve a fuller eye-brow-look even if we are careful pluckers. A favourite product of mine that last forever and doesn’t cost much is this fill-in-brow-powder by BareMinerals, easy to apply and perfect for a natural look. Brow Color £11, and Brow Brush £10.
Nail polish favourites of mine right now are Essie’s nr.487 Berry Hard and Chanel’s old classic nr.18 Rouge Noir, both are perfect shades of deep burgundy with brown undertones and quite similar, but Essie’s slightly lighter which I don’t mind, also stay’s like a rock and half the price of Chanel.
I’ve tipped about the Camelia oil earlier, but now after trying several other products by Elemis I’m totally hooked as they make the skin so soft and lean, and perfect when you want to spoil yourself with a luxurious home spa treat. “New-ins” are Elemis Lime and Ginger Salt Glow, Elemis Skin Nourishing Milk Bath, and off course a refill of my favourite oil, Elemis Japanese Camellia Body Oil Blend.

Every year I get this idea to chop a fringe, and this year like every other year, it’s not very likely to happen due to my unruly curls. However if I had straight hair like 60′s icon and beauty Francoise Hardy, the chop would have been done ages ago, her cut is just too cool for school and will remain my hair-inspo-dream for 2012 that never happened.
Happy Friday to all of you superstars!
I want to wear some colour on my lips these days ala the deep red shade above, however the problem for me whenever I’ve used covering lipsticks in the past, especially at this time of year, is that my lips get too dry. Any miraculous tips out there on a deep red moisturizing lipstick?
I’m doing just like Victoria Beckham and swearing to this oil blend by Elemis during my pregnancy. After trying different oils out there this one’s a clear favourite, it’s not too strong on the nose and sinks into skin very quickly, hopefully it will prevent skin damages, crossing my fingers…..

I wasn’t too found of some of Balmain SS13 80-90′s power-suit-women marching down the runway, with shoulder paddings out of this world, but I absolutely loved their hair. I used to wear this kind of not-so-perfect-braided-hair as a kid, and now I feel tempted to give it another go, with a pair of cool earrings, denim, leather, or a cozy knit, it’s so fresh!
I’m giving away this fall’s hottest nail colour that I’ve mentioned before, it’s Chanel’s limited edition Frenzy that will hit most counters on the 24th. In order to have a chance to be the lucky one, all you need to do is comment on this post, no motivation is needed, just your name will be fine, and I’ll draw one random “winner” on Friday 17th.
The lucky one was drawn on Friday the 17th and goes by the name of Marielle Furnes, congrats!
… you’ll find in a nail polish bottle by Chanel this fall called Frenzy 559, which I had on my nails while shooting in Paris. It’s the perfect creamy grey polish with a hint of lavender, and if you like me prefer more discreet and nude’ish looking nails, you’re gonna love this one. In stores from 24th of August, join the queue!
Latest addition in my bathroom closet is this instant nail polish remover (£8) I got at Sephora while in Paris last week, just dip your fingers into the box and turn it around, no grease and nail polish gone, magique! Best polish I’ve ever tried, dermatologically tested, smells good and definitely living up to it’s name.
