In My Makeup Bag

Hanna Kovanen

  BASE. If I had a bit better skin, I would not wear any foundations, especially during the summer time, but since that is not the case for now due to acne scars on my cheeks (the situation is seriously improving), I have to rely on a few products.   Lumene CC Color Correcting Foundation  - Medium I used to wear Chanel but there's no point paying the premiun price when this foundation is equally good. I have also tried other foundations from Lumene, but this particular one has got the best coverage/lightness balance for me. In the summer months I go for the darkest shade or apply Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer instead.  Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation - 15 Opal This product has been my life-saver ever since I have been suffering from acne breakouts. I use it to cover any imperfections, scars and spots on my skin, but only after I have applied foundation so that I know how much coverage is needed. CHEEKS.  NARS Contour Blush - Paloma I try to use this countour blush to enhance the dimensions of my face, but I think I use it more or less like I would apply bronzer.  I would have to push my skill level, but then again I am not that into strong contouring, if you know what I mean.  NARS Blush - Orgasm I love this blush (and I love blushes in general) as it brings my face back to life. Orgasm is just the perfect shade for me.

  EYES AND EYEBROWS.  Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette Just to make sure, my favourite is the original Naked Palette because I like its bronze-hued shades. I have had this eyeshadow palette for two years and never looked back since. I am only now starting to run out of a couple of my favourite shades - toast and buck. I also like their Eyeshadow Primer Potionwhich many of my friends have got and I would love to try out their NAKED2 BASICS for a less shimmery look.  Sensai 38°C Mascara I have relied on this mascara ever since I remember. I think it was my mother who gave me the recommendation. I tend to stick to black but I get periods when I wear brown mascara to create a more natural look. Volumising and Separating & Lenghtening are both good.  Lumene Blueberry Eyebrow Pencil - 2 Grey Brown When it comes to eyebrows I prefer to keep the look as natural as possible even though they tend to need a little touch. This is another product which I have used for years, and I think it is the most important product in my make-up bag. Fixing your eyebrows does wonders.  Lumene Blueberry Eyebrow Shaping Wax - 3 Blond I like this shaping wax in the lighter shade just to lenghten my eyebrows and to give them some definition.  LIPS In the morning I apply lip moisturizer from either RAAW in a jar, Lucas Papaw or from Elizabeth Arden,and I often wear brown/nude lipsticks but I have got too many of those to list them here.  MAC Lipstick - Ruby Woo It needs to be a rare occassion when I want to wear a red lip, but my favourite is Ruby Woo - it is the perfect shade of deep red and this lipstick leaves a matte finish.   Do you use any of the same products?
