Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat All-In-One Glow Tinted Moisturizer, from Neiman Marcus and  Saks.

This is the base I am personally mostly excited about as I am a huge fan of the Touche Eclat. I am also loving the promo image with Zoe Kravitz, obviously.

My Favourite Products For Under Eye Area: Eye Creams + Concealers

If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen this photo, and my promise  of the feature. So here it is…

Actually, believe it or not, but usually I don’t care about dark circles (on myself, not when I am doing someone’s makeup), unless they really look that bad. But when I do want to look flawless, here is what I do.

Best eye creams and concealers YSL benefit Clarins FOM London Makeup4all

First of all, I use a good eye cream, for me it has to be a moisturizing balm, as I have very dry skin. I love  Clarins Special Eye Contour Balm Dry Skin (review) and FOM London Revitalising Eye Care Balm (read about it), I leave it for some time while I am getting ready, and afterwards the following products are being used:

Face Of The Day. November 4th 2013

Looks like Face Of the Day is now a more, or less regular feature. Maybe at some point, I will get brave enough to include photos of myself, too. Who knows?! But, as for now, here are the products that I’ve used and my opinion about them.

This look was all about my good ol’ blush love – Chanel Orchid Rose. I used to wear it every single day years ago, so I’ve decided to show it some love today.

Face Of The Day  chanel YSL Hourglass thebalm RBRFace

I’ve started with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory to get a medium coverage and glowing effect, that way I didn’t even need a highlighter. It’s a great “foundation” for dull Autumn days. I’ve added some YSL’s Touche Eclat under the eyes, to brighten up the area and make me look less tired.

As, I’ve already mentioned, I’ve used Chanel Joues Contraste in Orchid Rose blush, which is a pretty warm-toned shade.  To add even more warmth to the face – I’ve used  YSL’s Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder  in N° 5 Cinnamon Sand.

Finished Makeup Products: Clarins, YSL and Benefit

Turns out it is possible to finish makeup! And recently I did use up three products from my personal makeup bag. The fact that I did stick to these products and used them till the very “last drop” means only one thing – these are among my favourites.

Makeup YSL Touche Eclate, Clarins Instant Light lip perfector, Benefit brow pencilYes, the eye brow pencil is not finished completely, but if I waited a bit longer, I’d have nothing to take a picture of.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat

This is one of the most loved product in the “Beauty World” and that’s easy to understand why. It instantly changes the way your under eye area looks, brightens all the darkness and  visually lifts up the eye. If you have really dark circles, make sure that you use concealer before Touche Eclat.  You can also use the product as your regular highlighter, when you want a natural and subtle effect.  If you want to know about other ways you can use Touche Eclat click here.
