Sometimes all you want when applying makeup is that extra something. I'm not one to save luxe makeup for special occasions; I use these 3 makeup items on the regular - YSL Rouge Volupté Lipstick in 01 Nude Beige (link), YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking Mascara (link) and Dior Diorskin Nude Skin-Glowing Makeup in 020 Light Beige (link).
I really do show these makeup items love. The Dior foundation is my perfect summer shade and has been on my face all summer, unless I take the time to buff in my BareMinerals foundation (more on that to come). A little goes a long way to give a beautiful semi-matte and super-smooth finish to my skin - and it never accentuates dry skin. I had intended to buy the Nars Sheer Glow foundation but am so happy that I came away with this foundation instead!
Ah, Saint Laurent. Has anyone seen the biopic? I've been meaning to. I generally enjoy the YSL brand - the Manifesto perfume is a current favourite - and my YSL lipstick and mascara are no exception.
Not only is the packaging very elegant and adds a touch of glamour to my makeup routine - but I truly love the "faux cils effet" that the mascara gives. Make sure to wipe off the excess mascara before applying this mascara though; it lets the natural hair wand really do its job. When I'm not sure what to wear for lipstick, I reach for this lipstick - it's slightly glossy, comfortable and just it as far as nude lipsticks go for me (not too opaque or pale).
When all is said and done, I love luxe makeup - but I stick to what I know I'll use alot.
