And while we are at it, hanging by the pool I mean, these are my new favorites to avoid getting burned. Except from succeeding to protect my fair winter skin from the tropical sun, these products are super moisturizing, long lasting and smells wonderful, so well worth those extra pennies, thumbs up!
I should have been on a plane to Bangkok right now, instead I’m stuck at a hotel and a rescheduled flight for tomorrow, with no access to my suitcase, help!!!
Anyway, last couple of days have been super hectic and only a few hours before I headed for Heathrow today I styled a last minute hair shoot where I improvised by wrapping the models in gorgeous Scandinavian jewellery and garbage bags, high shiny surface, so very fall 2012.
HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!
It’s not often I tip about beauty products as I don’t experiment much, but these goodies are new favorites of mine and it doesn’t hurt that they all come in a beautiful package.
L’eau De Chloe is a super fresh floral citrus fragrance, and doesn’t feel heavy at all on the skin, just the way I like it! YSL Volupte lipstick in Sheer Candy is perfect if you prefer a moisturizing lipstick (don’t we all?), good points for the fruity taste. Dior mascara’s have been favorites for years though I’ve felt the result could easily be a little too dramatic, the latest one however, Diorshow NEW LOOK is a great tip if you prefer more natural looking lashes.
It’s not often I buy make-up, like once a year, simply due to the fact I don’t use much. I’m a massive fan of Bare Minerals skin products but other stuff I get from Burberry and they last like forever, loving these products!
Sheer eye shadow No.21, lip definer No.02, lip glow No.05 (not sticky at all!)
I can’t remember ever getting so many compliments for my perfume as this one, Philosophy’s Grace Pure eau de parfum, and I like it even better than Amazing Grace which I’ve worn for years. When I was in NY I got refills from the whole grace pure range, totally addictive and as it says on the box: “nothing smells better than soap and water clean”, can’t argue that.
Though I’ve felt like wearing more natural shades on my nails lately, constantly sporting Chanel’s 493 Jade Rose, I might feel tempted to try one of these shades from Chanel’s limited edition, Les Jeans de Chanel, that will hit stores 8th of September.
Another nail news is Alexander Wang‘s first beauty effort that includes his very own nail color collection from Sally Hansen and will debut at his Spring show in NY in a few weeks…..
As I often get asked what hair products I use and how I style my hair I find it easier to do it all in one post, though I’ve tipped about the Kitoko oil before.
I’ve used this series from Kerastase for years and seems to be, from what I’ve tried, the only one that can control my unruly, fine, curly hair without loosing all volume at the same time, I use the mask instead of conditioner in order to moisture as much as possible.
I always use the creme to protect against heat followed by either the volume spray from Loreal or the mousse from Kerastase when I blow dry my hair with a mid size roller brush, and I never use hairspray, just don’t like the feeling of it.
Also one thing I could never live without is my brush from Mason Pearson, always carry it along in my handbag, a winner!
I rarely try new beauty products, I’ve already found products that work for me, hence I don’t mention it much here but as I got to try these 2 products last week and ended up being happy with the result I decided to add them to my bathroom closet.
Estee Lauder Illuminator Serum which add some radiant and reduces redness and a great lip balm from Dermalogica, both good for sensitive skin.
Yesterday they played around with my hair at my hairdresser Sergio’s and I ended up with plaits, slightly inspired by what was seen on Erdem‘s spring show. I love this twist which is a perfect way to soften up a more androgyne outfit or to tone down a harder look. I’m leaving for a wedding in Paris this weekend and I might decide to go for something similar, without the bun in the neck but a plait all around, we’ll see…….
The fragrance I’m carrying around in my handbag at the moment is Escada’s limited summer edition Taj Sunset with a scent of tropical Mango. Escada’s summer scents are the only “sweet” bottles that have ever found their way into my bathroom but they are like this one, perfect for summer days, light and fruity.
