It’s Saturday morning and as usual we are all still in our pajamas. While Thomas’ is scanning the internet for a pair of dining room chairs, I’m sipping my cup of take-away coffee – we ran out of coffee beans and cups for our machine so there was no other way to get our morning-coffee-fix than running to the nearest coffee shop. Anyway, I was going through my Instastory messages, and reading all your amazingly sweet comments and requests, when I realized it was about time to share a little about my current “beauty routine”. Nothing sponsored, not collaboration, just plain and simple: These are the products I use right now!

As you know I’m always searching for the best skin care products, and over time this became an extensive list of favorites. Right now I’m very much into a Lancome “Water-Infused” cream, which I got as a treat on my trip to the Bahamas with Jonathan Simkhai. And it surely is a treat, because as much as I usually dislike watery creams, this one has not that diluted feel. Additionally I use Chanel’s Hydra Beauty Micro gel for mourned my eyes. Next step, make-up.

My “normal” make-up is really as normal as it can be. And then I mean super basic. With dark circles under they eyes as a lovely family inheritance, I have to use a super concealer under/around my eyes to get rich of that tired look. I use Laura Mercier’s Secret Concealer. Not in a tone lighter than my skin – I think that’s a mistake most people make, which results in a panda moment whenever photographed – but a tone that’s similar, slightly darker. Trust me; this works!

Eyebrows are something I’m still learning about. I started off with Glossier’s Boy Brow – THE BEST – and added Dior’s Backstage Brow Kit to add some more dimension too it. Since I don’t like the wax that is in the kit, those two products form an ideal combination for me. Also, I’m trying to understand my brows, and treat them individually, because truth is, they didn’t come as twins, they are like sisters. Somewhat symmetrical to my face, but truly different.

Last but not least, blush – Chanel’s Joues Contrast Powder which I still have from my trip with Chanel to London – lip balm – Chanel Hydra Beauty Nourishing Lip Care, and Chanel Boy perfume.
