we all have one as we all do it – we all check ourselves in the mirror – whether to check the makeup or our outfit. over the last couple of years I have been paying attention to the different mirror faces of my friends or girls that I saw applying makeup in public transport or inside shops – I really enjoyed this research! at the zalando summerhouse there were many beautiful mirrors and my blogger friend Michèle from the fashionfraction blog took some funny photos of me checking my hat and makeup in the mirror. my mirror face is a bit like a duck/selfie face 🙂 and I think the first photo shows it very well. btw, this is also the gorgeous summer hat I was making at the zalandosummerhouse DYI workshop – isnt it gorgeous? in that picture I am wearing the GANNI blouse that I absolutely fell in love with – a simple floral keypiece to wear all year around – yes, here in Switzerland for sure!
what is your mirror face? have you ever noticed others checking themselves in the mirror? leave a comment below or comment on my FB page – I am very curious to hear what you think about your mirror face.
it was so nice to stay two days in the countryside at the beautiful castle HERZFELDE and spend some time in the nature. I loved wearing my new GANNI blouse and my selfmade summer hat and strolling thru the fields. the blouse is an amazing keypiece for floral outfits. I can pair it with highwaist shorts, jeans or a skirt – everything goes!
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo +
I have been using this corrective unclogging care which states – anti-imperfections and anti-marks for the last couple of weeks. the effaclar duo + is made for acne prone skin which I obviously dont have but I tend to have little facial daemons once a month – so thats the time when I am using this product everyday. I really like the consistency of the product, it is very light and leaves a matte finish. I am not sure if I am going to repurchase it so I will continue to use it and will get back to you when I know. stay tuned. xx
ladies, spring is about to be here and Estée Lauder presents some really awesome new products. I was invited to the press lunch in Basel and had the opportunity to get all the products explained and introduced. we all got a booklet with the latest products and a lot of interesting tips!
#1 Sumptuous Infinite daring length and volume Mascara Some of you may know that I am not a Mascara Fan at all 🙂 I hardly ever use Mascara.. But still I am always craving new things and I am one of these person who loves to try out new things. So of course I gave this Mascara a try and I have to say it does what it promises. It made my lashes look longer and made them dense and I really liked the shape of the brush.
#2 Revitalizing Supreme CC Creme A new anti-aging CC Creme – which adapts to your skin color and gets slightly tinted. the Cream should be applied as the last step after the moisturizer and inbetween foundation. I wear the CC Creme on Sundays and I just wear it on top of my moisturizer and it makes my skin look very even and it reduces the redness on my cheeks.
#3 ReNutriv Ultimate Contouring Eye lift I cant wait for summer.. this will be my best friend in summer! The new ReNutriv Eye Lift Creme has an amazing applicator out of ceramic which always stays cool. No matter if you have it in your purse or in your room it stays the same temperature. its like magic! I use it without creme and start from the inner part sliding outwards underneath my eyes, I repeat this 3 times per eye after that I apply the creme with the same move. I have been using it for the last couple of weeks and I really see a difference in my skin around my eyes – YAY! #4 Pure Color Envy Lipstick Bright lips, I am so ready for the spring summer colors of 2014.
20 different intense moisturizing color shades for bright lustrous lips!
#5 Modern Muse Modern Muse – I love the name of the newest Estée Lauder fragrance.
The fragrance has a very elegant and soft note and became one of my favorite fragrances. I wouldnt say its a fresh scent but still it makes me feel very fresh and clean. I took it to London for the fashionweek and whenever I travel short distances with small luggage I limit myself to bring only one parfum and allow myself to buy one in the dutyfree 🙂 so this time I didnt find a suiting parfum on my way to london so this meant I had to use the same parfum everyday for one week 🙂 and I loved it!! on the way back I found something nice, something we dont have in switzerland, but I will tell you in another post. stay tuned. I can highly recommend to visit your local parfum shop and try the Modern Muse fragrance – I am sure you will love it too.
#6 Pure Color Nailpolish Not only bright lips but also bright nails – the new Pure Color Nailpolishes are really nice. I wore it for several days and it didnt chip. But I also used the top coat from Estée Lauder so I cant tell you if it would chip or not if wearing it without top coat. I will try it and will let you know.
soo, thats it for now. I had fun with all those new products and I hope you will enjoy them soon too! spring starts this month, yay! I will show you the Mascare, lipstick, CC Creme and Nailpolish in an upcoming post! stay tuned! xx
OOH DEARS – last night I had so much fun at the M.A.C. bloggers event at HILTL in Zurich.
I met wonderful swiss bloggers and memorized some very useful makeUp tricks. The focus of the workshop was lashes – yeah, lashes became really big these days – especially the fakelashes. I noticed that I have seen way more women wearing fakelashes on a daily base than I did in earlier times. So there is a trend for big expressive lashes. People who know me they know that I very rarley use mascara myself 🙂 but for special occasion I love to wear a dramatic eyemakeup but for my everyday look I will always go with a bright lip instead of a dramatic eyelook.
On the way back to Basel I was traveling with lovely MIA and I asked her this question: “If you can only take one makeUp product with you – what would you pick?” She thought about it for a moment and answered “concealer” – without concealer I look tired. I think its so interesting to get to know other girls opinion about their faces and makeUp looks. If I had to answer the question I asked her I would of course pick a bright lipstick because I look very boring with no color in my face 🙂
thank you M.A.C. for the lovely presents – I will soon show you what I got and will also share some amazing news regarding M.A.C. – all I can say for now is RIRI <3
I took a lot of notes from the helpful tricks all the bloggers shared and I will soon post a M.A.C. bloggers events tricks special and share all my notes with y’all. stay tuned! xx
