Now that holidays start I want to write a post about the makeup I use for these days. I always try to change but I have in mind that there’s a difference between makeup for family meetings and makeup to go out to parties. I normally keep it simple for dinners such as Christmas, with classical tones: my favorite are golden eyeshadow and red lips.

Here is my look and my fave products for tonight. Later on I’m going to write a step-by-step tutorial…but by now I’ve used:

Galenic Aqua Infini moisturizer.

Strivectin eye concentrate.

Clinique pep-start:used as a primer.

Nars Sheer Matte foundation in Santa Fe Medium 2.

Kat von D Shade and Light contouring palette.

Kat von D lock-it concealer in Cool tone.

The Balm creamy concealer in Light.

Too faced Insurance eyeshadow primer.

Bareminerals powder concealer in Summer bisque.

Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder.

Urban Decay Naked 2 eyeshadow palette.

Too faced Love Flush blush palette: Your love is King.

Beter Look expert brow gel.

Shu Uemura curler.

Too faced Better than sex mascara.

Nabla matte lipstick in Alter Ego.

Deborah tranparent universal lip pencil.

Nars brown pencil eyeliner in Mambo.

Kat von D trooper eyeliner.

I hope you like the look! MERRY CHRISTMAS my beloved readers!!!

Tips for teens

  • When it comes to makeup for teenagers I must say: LESS IS MORE. It has to be soft and subtle, even at night or in an event. We don’t want you to look like mini Barbies or Kens! You have to look your age: natural and fresh!

It is also very important to take good care of your skin, as maybe you tend to have blemishes or acne. Don’t worry! I’ll give you some tips to hide all the imperfections 😉

BIODERMA’s Micellar water for mixed skins is great for you! Apply it each night with a cotton pad in order to remove impurities.

Natural emergency tip: toothpaste on the spot!

Chemist: PEROXIBEN  is the best product by far! Also NEOSTRATA salicylic gel works great.

Use a light moisturizer such as Bioderma or Clarins for mixted skins. Although I always prefer the chemist to purchase good  products.

Money issue: we know teens are not the richest human beings on Earth. Here are some affordable brands whose quality is excellent: Nyx, Sleek, MUA, Essence, Maybelline and L’Oreal are among my favourites.

Concealer is your best friend! Apply green concealer on your spots and then cover them blending your makeup base, you can use a blending sponge or a base brush. For under eye circles combine yellow concealer with a beige tone, always one tone lighter than your makeup base tone.

Clean, clean , clean! Use cleaning soap day and night before your regular cream to keep your skin away of impurities

CRAZY ABOUT MAKEUP!

First of all let me apologize for any  possible language mistakes! I am a common girl from Barcelona who teaches English and History and who also loves advising normal people how to look like a super model! just kidding…

 My name is Sara. So what am I doing here talking about all this stuff?! 

Well I love arts and writing, so here I am mixing my two passions. I consider makeup as an ART. I’ve been into makeup since I was a teen with spots to be covered,  little by little I’ve been improving my experience with loads of curiosity, research, lessons and with self discipline. 

I would like to bring my experience to regular women who care about their appearance but who don’t have a clue where to start from and want to keep it simple and natural. I also want to help teens to go through this difficult acne and insecurities time and men who want to look hot!

 I hope to be helpful and also learn from all of you too!

 MAC “Girl about town” and Chanel rouge, The Balm Mary Loumanizer to highlight cheekbones, Too faced “Better than sex” mascara: amazing eyelashes. Also Too faced “Shadow insurance” lid primer. Kat von D black eyeliner for those who want to create cat eyes without failing! Bobbi Brown products, of course! Eyeshadows: the one and only “Naked 1, 2 and 3” from Urban Decay; Dior‘s pigmented palettes and Estée Lauder awsome shades
