"No Makeup" Makeup

I start with a good makeup base, I use Agnès b. Liss’Velours Smoothing & Fixing Makeup Base which is a mattifying makeup primer, then I dab on a thin layer of Garnier BB Cream to even out the skin ton and keep it fresh and hydrated. Another product I use is the Maybelline Instant Anti Age Dark Spot Eraser, the creamy concealer is perfect for hiding dark circles with it's medium pigmented formula that blends in effortlessly to leave a natural skin finish.

Cream blush has been in my summer makeup for a very long time. I use the P2 Cheeks & Lips Cream Blush, this shade adds a slight pop of colour. For the lips it´s the perfect natural pink, with a light shine that feels just like a lip balm.

For Eyes mascara is absolutely essential - as are lash curlers. A few quick pumps with a curler to instantly look more awake. One coat of Manhattan Volcano Explosive Volume Mascara adds some natural definition while keeping things soft and fluttery.

For more eye definition I use the Agnès b. Le Kohl Eye Pencil, it´s a soft and creamy inside eye pencil. It stays in place all day and resists moisture without feeling heavy or waxy.

Favorite SPFs

Clinique Sun SPF 30 Body Cream is a body lotion with high, broad-spectrum SPF and free-radical-busting antioxidants. 
It hydrates skin and protects it from UVA and UVB damage.

The cream disappears into the skin without leaving a residue or scent behind. 
It's rich, but not so much that it's too heavy for summer or for everyday wear.


Garnier Ambre Solaire Dry Mist SPF30 is a spray-on sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection. The spray dries in seconds and it´s easy to apply.

Clinique SPF: Douglas / Garnier SPF: Müller
