The temperature dropped pretty low last month, so I needed to bring out my Belstaff shearling jacket that I packed away when I organised my wardrobe since Summer was on the way -_-. By the way, if you are into biker jackets, Belstaff makes very nice ones, so you should check them out. I've owned mine for a few years now, but you will find similar designs every year or once every a few years. You can also get their clothes from Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf goodman.
And please excuse my hair XD. I played fetch with my baby Yuna very intensely, so I sweated a bit and my hair wasn't in the best condition :P.
Regardless, you might have noticed a subtle glow on my face even after 5 hours! :O
I've been using an intensive treatment Sisleÿa-Elixir by Sisley for a month (and I nearly finish it!) in replacement of my other serums. I will likely make a review post on it later, so keep an eye out for that ;). As I said earlier, it was pretty cold in the evening, so I needed to put an extra layer of hydrating cream by La Prairie and Sisley All Day All Year on top of the Sisley elixir. I reviewed the La Prairie hydrating cream, so if you are interested, go and have a read about it :). And for the eye area, just La Prairie hydrating eye cream since the area gets really dry during seasonal changes.
Since it was in the afternoon when I was playing with Yuna, I needed to put on some sunscreen. I mixed Chantecaille Ultra Sun Protection SPF 50 PA+++ with a few drops of an illuminator by By Terry, which is one of my favourite illuminators on the market.
Chantecaille sunscreen by itself already provides a subtle glow, but I wanted an ultra glow with a bit of brightness onto my skin, so I needed to use an illuminator! :P
And that's it for my base! No foundation or tinted moisturiser since my skin has been looking pretty good, so I only used a tiny bit of Shu Uemura concealer under my eyes just to cover some dark circles. Then I used some Chanel eyeliner in Shade 30 Marine very subtly and drew Kevyn Aucoin Lip pencil in shade Medium on my lips for definition and subtle fullness of lips. After, I applied Rouge Coco shine in shade Boy by Chanel on my lips, which perfectly matches my natural lip colour. It was really all about enhancing my look. No mascara, just a bit of curl with my eyelash curler. I also highlighted my eyebrows a bit with Benefit High Brow just to get that groomed eyebrows look.
One more thing, a spritz of my Amore Pacific hydrating mist throughout the afternoon and evening, which doesn't really dry out your skin but hydrates it a little without adding oil on your skin. It's one of my go to facial mists and my must-have during seasonal changes.
