The 87th Academy Award ceremony took place in Los Angeles yesterday. It is always an awaited event, not only because of the awards themselves but also for the Fashion. This year though, I have to say that I was a bit disappointed because I did not see a lot of great looks : great dresses with wrong accessories, great dresses with wrong makeup, great dress for the wrong body shape.... A perfect look is a whole, make up (of course) included.
Check my best & worst pick below.
Jennifer Lopez : she was almost perfect...except for the makeup!
Japanese women are known to take very good care of their skin. Double cleansing has been practiced for centuries by them in order to keep their face pure and clear. This method may seem a little too-much but it is in my opinion the best way to remove all the makeup and impurities, especially if you wear (a lot of) makeup every day.
The idea is to first use and oil-based makeup remover, followed by a water-based cleanser to completely get rid of any impurities and residues. Oil makeup removers are great, even for acne-prone and oily-skin because they are not harsh on the skin but still very effective, especially on waterproof makeup. Dry skin will also appreciate this methods because you are not rubbing your face with cotton pads, which can be agressive on the long-term.
Since Valentine's Day is around the corner, I wanted to create a look for the occasion, whether you are going on a date or out with your friends. This look is supposed to enhance your natural beauty, but is still sexy and feminine. You don't have to use the exact same products. If you have similar items, they will certainly do the trick!
