The word “diet” never had great importance within my vocabulary and unhealthy lifestyle.

find your neutral

As a makeup artist, I love playing with dramatic eyes, dark lips and lots of highlighter. In my makeup kit, I have lipsticks of every colour, but I used to leave the nude tones for smokey eyes or stronger “eye looks” as I felt like they didn’t bring enough colour. I decided recently to leave my “intense dramatic makeup look” phase behind and explore my “is she even wearing makeup?” phase… Soft skin, together with a dewy and lightly bronzed look and neutral lip shade is the perfect mix for healthy looking skin. But how do you choose the ideal tone for you without ending with pale lips? Remember, we want to look natural but alive! And not as if our lips had vanished into our face!
