If my day-time routine is quite simple, it get more sophisticated in the evening (although in the summer I also simplify). I really wanted to share my current night routine because I am really enjoying these products and I feel my skin has been doing great on it.
I think it is very important to take care of your skin before going to bed because it is actually during your sleep that you skin regenerates and heals. If you are dealing with any particular issue, it is then important to target it in your night routine.
It's the middle of Summer, and while you are still enjoying it, you probably want to keep your skin bronzed and glowing. My previous post was about Strobing, the highlighting technique. Strobing can be used all year long, but for summer, you may want to use golden, caramel and bronze shades to fit your tan, so here is my selection of shimmery bronzer and highlighter to fake the perfect bronze glow and reveal the golden goddess within you...
Contouring is out! Strobing is now the latest makeup trend, but it is actually nothing more than a heavy highlight with no contour involved. It is all about that glow, and if you don't know what I mean, just take a look at Jennifer Lopez or Victoria's Secret models.
You don't necessarily need the exact same items that I will show to achieve it, these are just my suggestions and what I like to use. In my case, I did not go crazy on the highlight since I wanted to keep the look natural, but for an evening out, a strong highlight would look amazing! This is only up to you :)
Travel to China ✓
One of my closest friend happens to live in Shanghai and invited me to celebrate my 25th birthday with her. I always wanted to go to China, so I did not hesitate! I can really say this was an amazing trip, and this is why I would like to share some pictures and details.
My road map was the following : Shanghai - Zhangjiajie - Shanghai - Suzhou - Shanghai, on a total of 10 days (excluding the flight from/to Beirut). Most first-timer in China go to Beijing and Xi'an, but the main reason I picked Zhangjiajie was its forest park and mesmerizing landscape. Suzhou is a must-see if you are in the Shanghai region, especially if you are fond of History & Chinese culture.
