I really loved the video of Lisa Eldridge creating the look on Caroline de Maigret who collaborated with Lancome to bring out a AW 2015 makeup collection which is all about the Parisian chic.
Speaking of Parisian chic, I’ve had a book How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits written by Carloine and her girlfriends for some time now, and I should definitely read it at some point soon.
I am sure that I am not the only one who wants to play with the collection after watching this video… So what are the products?
Mes Incontournables de Parisienne, £55
- 4 eyeshadows: a matte rosewood, an iridescent bronze, an intense brown and a warm, subtly scintillating taupe
- 1 illuminator: its very pale pink
- 3 brow powders: light, medium and dark
- 1 blush: pink cream blush
- 2 expert brushes: the Yeux Traceur et Ombre features a flat tip to apply and blend the shadow for an elegant smoky eye, as well as a firm bevelled tip to apply monochromes or eyeliner. the eyebrow applicator includes a brush to structure the brow and a bevelled tip to accentuate the line. It can also be used to apply eyeshadow like a liner to lids.

Here is a preview of Lisa Eldridge’s makeup collection for Lancome. And I am personally very happy to see cream blushes, as when she asked what products the brand should bring out – I was one of those who voted for them.
I am sure that Lisa will re-vamp Lancome a bit and will make it more modern. As, although their products are amazing (among my personal favourites) – they are not always the first ones that come to mind.
So here is a preview of the collection. And I am very happy to see Daria Werbowy on the promo. If you follow me on Pinterest – you know that I am slightly obsessed with her.

The second biggest thing for SS15, after contouring (I have featured tonnes of products here) is definitely eye brows!
And while contouring may not be that necessary – groomed eye brows is a must! Luckily, most brands do at least some kind of products these days, so you get to pick from premium offerings to budget-friendly options.
Here are some of the newest releases:
Lancome Sourcil Tint Longwear Eyebrow Pen ($26 from Nordstrom)
A felt-tip pen with matte finish. Available in Blond, Brun, Chatain and Noir.
New season – new lipstick, right? Here are some of the variants which you can consider. I have already posted about a lot of new lipsticks (browse here), and here are even more. This time it’s all abut the sheer, glossy, balmy textures. And, yes, there will be a separate feature about different ones.
Please excuse the bad quality of the photos, they were made with a phone camera + a bad light in store. But, hopefully, it will give you an idea of what to expect.

Last week(s) was very stressful and intense for me, I’ve barely had time for anything (lack of sleep, eating on the go, putting makeup on in a taxi) but I still had to look good. This is why I had to stick to the products that work the best for me, and didn’t have time for any experiments. So here is a selection that I love, that work, and that never let me down.
Makeup wise – my “foundation” of choice was Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer which did not enhance any dry patches, and made my skin look glowing. It also helped to even out the skin tone, as I don’t have any major skin problems – this was enough. Bobbi Brown’s Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate is also a real gem, it tints the brows and holds them in place. I am addicted to this product , will write a detailed review soon.
Lip colour is the only thing that I’ve been changing, but most of the times that was all about the new Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfectors; 03 My Pink created aRead More
