My Daily Beauty Essentials || Skin Care || Beauty Tips

Hello,


I come up with a new post, for showing my Beauty Essentials for my skin care and my face. Unless you’re one of the lucky ladies in this world to be born with flawless skin (Chanel Iman, if you read this, I'm talking to YOU ! :p ) you’ve probably struggled with skin imperfections at some point or another.

THE PRODUCTS


I have not often had skin problems (acne and other) ... But sometimes, I have one or two buttons (I didn't wake up flawless). I think the less you use products on you, the more the skin breathes and keeps its natural. For me, a scrub, a lotion, and a moisturizer are sufficient. No need to use more.
  • Moisturizing Cream or Crème Hydratante - Le Petit Marseillais 
  • Cleansing Scrub  or Gel nettoyant exfoliant pamplemousse rose Visibly Clear - Neutrogena
  • Cleansing Lotion or Lotion nettoyante désincrustant points noirs Visibly Clear - Neutrogena
  • Sublimating dry oil or Huile sèche sublimante - Le Petit Marseillais

WHAT ABOUT THE RESULTS ?


I first started by using some Yves Rocher products... But I wasn't satisfied enough and I didn't see lots of results. They are essentially made from NATURAL products : it means that you have to be very patient to start to see a result... That wasn't for me...Nah !

  •  I decided to change and test the Neutrogena " crème désincrustante points noirs" or "exfoliating cream black spots"...  It WORKS ! I could clearly see the loss of black spots. Now I'm using the lotion day and night, and I loove it ! If you have an oily skin, this lotion is THE perfect one to reduce sebum. It is my fav' from the 4 !

  • The "Neutrogena gel nettoyant exfoliant" is a great refreshing and makeup remover ! I use it to remove some makeup residues.

  • I mainly use the "Le Petit Marseillais mosturizing cream" on my face before any makeup application, and on my hands, to keep them smooth and beautiful.

  • The "Le Petit Marseillais sublimating dry oil" is my body lotion. I use it for almost 7 months or something like that...My complexion glows and my skin is clear and regular.


It's your turn now !

Elsy x Mekuate by Cindy Stephanie || Wear the unexpected

My Dear Ladies,


I feel that it has been so loooong that I haven't posted something here... (11 days ).I took time to rest and think about my life, my family and my ambitions... I had a life detox. But now it's okay I feel pretty better.

Lots happening these past days, I went to Paris, met old friends... and also worked with a young talented designer Cindy Stephanie. She made two beautiful outits for me ( Just for me =p ).

Cindy stephanie is a 18 year old - young girl who decided to create her own brand "MEKUATE" in May 2014. She's motivated by passion and love for the fashion since her childhood. She's really talented : she learned to sew by herself without any formation and already participated in two events for presenting her brand in France. Let me show you what she's capable of...

// I Love the details of this shoe: bimaterial croco and suede, gold heel //

How I do my Electric Blue || Eye Makeup || 5 stepsTutorial

My Dear Ladies,

during the last week, I spent the most of my time on Instagram, searching and looking for inspiration... I've been looking through many makeup  pictures on Instagram and I fell in love with a particular one inspired by @sadiiyah.( she's one of the greatest makeup artist I follow on IG) that I'll show in this post... Stay tuned :)

I've called this makeup "Electric Blue" you will guess why... ;) !


Makeup I've used :


  1. HEMA - soft liner - black
  2. HEMA - Kohl pencil - blue
  3. HEMA - Metallic Eyemousse - blue // The essential of this makeup //
  4. H&M - Natural Eye Lashes - black
  5. GEMEY MAYBELLINE - Rocket Volum' Express mascara - black
Steps :
  • Apply the eye liner up to half on the upper eyelid in a cat-eye way.( You can help with a black Kolh pencil).
  • Apply the blue Kohl pencil on the lower eyelid.
  • Apply the Eyemousse on the blue part of the lower eyelid with a small precision brush.
 




  • Let's go onto the next step, installing the eyelashes ! Don't worry !!! Many of you asked me how I fix my lashes...There is a quick tip at the end of the post explaning it.


  • After fixing the eyelashes, apply the Rocket volum' mascara on them and on the lower eyelashes. Here is the final result:
// Here is the final result. What do you think of it?//


Which Lipstick color ?

Depending on your style, your attitude or the occasion, you may wear this make up the day or the night by using different lipstick color.
Wear a nude or neutral lipsick for a perfect day look ! or a red lipstick for a sexy and bold look for the night !


// SEPHORA - nude 03// --- //MAC - Russian Red//
Foundation: Genius Gel MARC JACOBS
Earrings: FOREVER 21


Quick Tip: How I fix my false eyelashes (French)
  1. Gently remove the eyelashes from their box one by one|| Je retire délicatement les cils du boitier un à un.
  2. Apply a thin amount of glue along the entire length of the lash strip and allow to set for about 30 seconds or until tacky.|| J'applique une petite quantité de colle sur toute la longueur du cil et j'attends qu'elle sèche.
  3. Using the tweezersor my fingers, place the false lash as close to the base of your natural lashes as possible, working from the center out. Hold the lash in place for a few seconds until the lash strip has a chance to hold.|| En utilisant des pinces ou mes doigts, je fixeles faux cils aussi prets de mes cils naturels afin qu'ils se confondent et je maintiens la base des faux cils afin qu'ils collent complètement.
  4. To remove lashes, hold a warm damp towel to the eye and gently peel off false lashes from the root.|| Pour retirer les cils, tenir une serviette chaude humide à l'œil et retirez délicatement les faux cils à partir de la racine.
I'll try to upload a video tutorial soon.

So, hope you enjoyed this lil tutorial, and that my little tips can help and inspire you ! It's a pleasure for me.
Thanks for the support XO
