I have a hate love relationship with the season of rebirth. Hate because of the pollen allergies I end up with and Love because I am a Spring child (born in May) and I just adore flowers.
This year, the major makeup trend for Spring is nude. It is about soft pinks and warm beiges, glowy skin and rosy cheeks. You cannot mess a makeup like this because it is about enhancing more than anything else. To make it easier, I have selected a couple of items to add to your Spring wardrobe and that will instantly freshen your look!
Yesterday, I was invited by Lush Lebanon to create my own Catastrophe Cosmetic signature mask. For those who don't know, Lush is specialized in fresh and hand-made cosmetics. They have an amazing range of face masks, one for every issue but Catastrophe Cosmetic (their Best Seller) is good enough to suit all skin-type. I explained the benefits of this mask in details in my previous post, so check it ;) I also mentioned that my followers can get one mask for free. You just need to ask for Mademoiselle L's mask and don't forget to follow Lush on their social media.
Quantity is limited, so try to pass by as soon as possible!
I was invited with four others Lebanese bloggers to recreate the mask. Each of us was given the fresh ingredients (blueberries, calamine...) and we started the recipe. It really felt like baking, mixing everything together but honestly it was so much fun! My friends Rasha and Cynthia (from Mode Nomade) helped me with the preparation. We started by crushing the berries to get the juice out. We then added the Irish Mosh gel, the Glycerine and Almond Oil. After few drop of Rose Absolute and Camomille Blue Oil, we finished with the Calamine powder and some Talc. After some kneading, we finally obtained the right consistency and the mask was ready to be divided and spooned into the signed Mademoiselle L pots!
You can see the whole process in the pictures below:
I am a firm believer of natural skincare because chemicals can themselves be responsible of our skin issues. This is why I always loved Lush. I already talked in details about the brand in this post, so check it for more info!
