BEAUTY There are just some brands, that we all feel really close to as if we’ve grew up with them or were surrrounded by it’s aura. I have always felt really close to Lancôme, it was I remember my mother’s favourite make-up brand and as child I couldn’t avoid sneaking in her beauty case and try out all the lipsticks, the blushes, the eye shadows which made me look at the end like a little paint pot, a cute one, but a paint pot anyway. I believe most of the little girl have done that at least one time, or maybe they prefered playing with their mom’s high heels and bras, which I did as well…  I also will never foget how I used to lick the juicy tubes which seemed to me like little candies, and even now I consider them beening one of the best lipgloss colletion ever created, thanks to Lancôme. So obviously this collaboration with Lancôme made me extremely happy and perhaps a little nostalgic at the same time. It was so lovely to be able to play again with the products just like in my childhood, and imagine a story around their new Midnight Roses colletion which you will discover in this post and will be available to see in stores in September. I think that each make-up brand has a couple of words which really represent the brand’s spirit and the kind of woman this whole idea embraces. For me, Lancôme is a symbol of feminity, softness and quite romantic too. This is something I wanted to show in the pictures.

So for this look I have chosen to create a very romantic look since the goal was to play with the name of this new make-up collection : midnight roses. First of all I started by making my usual face routine, with my YSL teint touche éclat and a little bit of powder to make it all hold. I wanted my face to look as glowy and fresh as possible so the Lancôme blush highlighter from the new collection was more than perfect applied on the check bones and nose. It adds the perfect shine. After that I used a very basic brown palette and applied the lightest shade on my whole lid, and the darkest one above the lid in a half circle in order to make my eyes pop. I made sure to apply a reasonable amount of dark eye shadow because the accent of this look is focused on the lips. Afterwards I used the Lancôme Liner Plume in n°1 ”Noir” which is so easy to use, it is really like holding a pencil, such an incredible brush. The eyeliner does create an amazing effect. To finish the eyes, I applied some Helena Rubinstein mascara and used some brow pencil from Lancôme in n°020, chatain. I always loved to make my eyebrows look darker than they actually are. The best part of this look are, I believe, the lips. I used Lancôme’s L’Absolu Mat Cashmere in Magie Pourpre (Shade 300) which is more than amazing, I mean the texture is so creamy and soft you just want to put some more again and again. Hope you will enjoy discovering the pictures. James and I are so happy and excited with the result so hopefully you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Salut, tout d’abord bravo pour la rigueur et la régularité avec lesquelles tu tiens ton blog. C’est beaucoup de travail et d’investissement. Je ne suis pas très attirée par la mode mais je te suis depuis quelques mois. Le commentaire que je vais faire ne s’adresse pas seulement à toi mais voilà. De plus en plus souvent, les blogueurs sont sollicités par des marques de vêtements/bijoux/beauté. Je trouve cela vraiment dommage. Lorsque tu reçois un cadeau, tu es “obligée” de le présenter sur ton site. L’une des qualité des blogs était leur indépendance. Je sais que tu portes souvent des habits bon marché, mais toi comme d’autres blogueurs sont des victimes consentantes d’une industrie de la mode qui tente de reprendre le contrôle. Au début, les blogs étaient un lieu de résistance en quelque sorte. Maintenant, les filles sont les porte-manteau de grandes marques. Oui vous choisissez parfois vos pièces etc, mais votre travail de blogueur devient une simple publicité que vous effectuez sans être payés. J’ai travaillé dans le secteur publicitaire de la mode et des amis qui y sont encore me confortent dans l’opinion que je viens de t’exposer. Si les grandes marques vous invitent à des événements ce n’est pas parce qu’elles trouvent votre travail intéressant, mais parce qu’elles maximisent leur diffusion publicitaire, et ce envers des couches de la société qu’elles n’atteindraient pas sinon. Alors oui, tu as certainement beaucoup de plaisir à ces collaborations – et une volonté de travailler dans le milieu après – , mais garde à l’esprit que les marques vous instrumentalisent. Et ça même si vous avez l’impression d’être les gagnants de l’affaire.

who is doing all those beautiful photos for you?! I have an impression that I’m looking some of famous editorials :)

Your best blog yet!!!
