Sometimes it feels really weird that I love makeup. My Mum couldn’t care less about it, and I did not really read glossy magazines or watch beauty shows on TV growing up. (I did do it all but it was when I already knew that I love all things beauty).
My Mum did have quite a few lipsticks and a mascara but she was not obsessed with all those things and wore makeup only for special occasions. She did like perfume though, as long as I remember.
So I’ve decided to ask her what makeup products she truly loves. And since I’ve mentioned perfume – her most used one these days.
Before I start I have to mention that she does use foundation and mascara occasionally but she doesn’t really have a favourite and would just use whichever [I give her]. However, the products shown above she loves and uses on a regular basis.
As you can already guess, Mum’s favourite makeup product is a lipstick. She has a fair complexion with dark eyes and very dark hair so bright reds and berries look amazing on her.
