This winter Lancôme is all about the perfect natural skin. They have launched a couple of products that will give you that smooth and silky face you’ve always dreamt of without adding a bunch of foundation. For me, this is the perfect look for the holidays. A natural looking skin and some va-va-voom lips and I’m ready to party!
I rarely wear any foundation on my skin. It tends to give me an unnatural look and my skin can’t breath, which results in an impure skin. More and more make up brands are also experimenting with natural looks, and so is Lancôme. It all starts with a good primer. The new prep & matte is a blurring and mattifying (much needed for me) makeup primer – but you can also use this just as a primer to give your skin an even look. I never leave for work without some primer. Afterwards you can add the ‘long time no shine’ (I love the name) setting powder – an oil absorbing and smoothing weightless powder. Since the powder is pigmented this also work as a bronzer a bit. Lastly, they also launched a fixating spray – called fix it forget it (so fun again!) – that smooths the skin and gives it a fresh feeling, perfect to use during the day to keep your skin all fresh & fruity. Bring on all those Christmas parties!
And then there’s still their all time bestseller – L’absolu rouge lipsticks. These ones are matte editions though, as matte lipstick is still really hot and happening. I think these are in my top 3 of favorite lipsticks. They are really well pigmented, they stay long and the design of the new packaging is gorgeous! These two bright colours go perfect with a natural looking skin, all eyes on the lips.
