BEAUTY // Daily make-up routine

I think it’s a real pity that a lot of young girls nowadays wear a thick layer of foundation to hide their natural beauty. I think nobody should be hiding anything. Make-up should be about highlighting your true self and give you that extra push of confidence to stand out (or get through the winter days).

These everyday essentials sure work their magic.


First, after completing my daily skin care routine (which I will be sharing with you some other time), I apply (only one pump of) the Highlighting Skin Tone Foundation by KIKO Milano, which is one of my favorite make-up brands. I am currently using one of the neutral tones, but you sure can ask the shop-assistant for advice and get the colour that best matches your skin. My experience is that regardless of where you’re visiting a KIKO Milano store, the shop-assistants welcome you with a friendly smile and are well trained to give you make-up advice (or apply some make-up, as you want). They really know their products.

What about those eyes?

One of my all time favourites is the purple (#4 Fascinating Violet) Volume Effet Faux Cils mascara by Yves Saint Laurent beauty. I tend to wear it on days where I feel I can use some colour or when I feel extra special (or when the colour palette of my outfit matches this colour). The Volume Effet Faux Cils YSL mascara aims at giving you high volume and a dramatic false lash effect and it does not dry out, which I think is very important. Little detail: you can personalize your mascara by engraving (!) it with a personal message. Yup, definitely adding this one to your wish list.

On the remaining weekdays, I’m wearing one of the black mascaras of KIKO Milano. I am currently using a limited edition mascara which I bought during the Holidays. However, I should note that all mascaras provided by KIKO Milano have a really good price-quality ratio: their mascaras range from 6.45 EUR to 12.95 EUR (say what?). All mascaras are provided with a different brush to make sure you find the mascara that matches your needs: one that catches every lash and delivers fantastic lash definition. Nope, we do not need wimper extensions. In addition, I use the black KIKO Milano precision eyeliner for adding a more dramatic eye-look effect by accentuating my eyes.

Lastly, I put on some cherry flavoured Labello as seen on Chiara Ferragni.
