Our 5 minute glowy and natural make-up routine you will love!

First things first: start with a clean and fresh face and scrub at least once a week to get your glow on. One of my go-to scrubs is one from Clinique called exfoliating scrub/gommage tonique . It has a minty smell and leaves your skin feeling a little cold. Just what you need in the morning to wake you up!

Always apply eye-serum and don't forget to hydrate ladies. 

I personally love the eye-gel from Louis Widmer which you can easily find at your local pharmacy.  It hydrates, de-puffs and goes a long way. If you're looking to target some wrinkles here and there, try the anti aging variant or opt for the best of the best from Chanel called Le Lift (to die for).

When it comes to hydration, make sure to know if your skin is oily, prone to acné or dry,..etc.

During wintertime I usually hydrate with a heavier cream as my skin tends to be dry. Of my faves is Kiehls Ultra Facial Cream. It also comes with spf if you like and they have the same variant for oily skin too. When summer comes along I usually opt for the gel-based variant including spf 30. 

MAKE-UP ROUTINE

1) Apply tinted moisturizer with your fingers or use a foundation brush (Laura Mercier color 3W1 Bisque)

2) Apply concealer in the corner of your eyes, on the outside corner of your eyes to lift and just below your mouths corners to brighten. (L'Oreal perfect Match color Golden Beige)

3) Blend blend blend with a sponge or by using your fingers and make sure to go over your eyelids to brighten the eyes + drag down some concealer across the side of your nose to brighten and lift.

4) Lift the cheekbones by applying creamy contour or bronzer just ON the edge of the cheekbones and on the hairline - especially if you have a big forehead like I do ;) 
Applying it under - or on top of the cheekbone will not lift so the trick is to tap in with your fingers and to find the edge of the cheekbone. And there you have it. THE SPOT to put your bronzer/contour to lift and bronze.
My favourite 2 in one product is : Tom Ford Shade&Illuminate - color 01
A little expensive but worth every penny!

5) Don't forget the neckline - we don't want a white neck ladies!

6) Again -> blend blend blend to make sure every product melts into your skin

7) Add highlight on the sides of your cheekbones and under the brows + drag a little highlight on the bridge of your nose.  Tom Ford Shade&Illuminate - color 01

8) Set your concealer and mattify your T-zone with a fluffy small brush (Laura Mercier Loose powder or any loose powder you have) 

9) Fill in your brows in a natural way : Hema Brow Pen - LIFEHACK and my go to favourite as it blends with your skin and goes a long way. 

11) Bambi Lashes: L'Oreal Telescopic Lashes ->  lifts, lengthens and separates the lashes 

12) Lips & Cheeks : Kiko Tropical heat lips and cheeks or Bobbi Brown Lips&Cheeks in color Calypso Coral to apply with your fingers or sponge on the apple of the cheeks and on the lips. Skip this part if you're not in a "blush" mood, and just use a little hydrating lipbalm on the lips :)

13) Set that good good to make it last! (NYX Setting spray in Matte finish or Dewy finish) I opt for Matte finish as I'm already using highlight - We don't want to look like a shiny disco ball don't we?

  Et voila! You're good to go! Hope you enjoyed our video and tips.
