Do you know or have that Monday morning face? I am sure most you do. I recently made an article to have nicer Mondays. This time I have 5 products to create an effortless makeup, office and school appropriate. No tools or special skills are needed, which also makes it perfect for makeup beginners:
Have a nice week! :)
There is nothing more annoying than having dry and flaky lips. Soft lips are also a requirement if you like to wear lipstick, especially bold color or matte shades. I have experienced dry lips since I cannot longer remember and I have also had several allergic reaction to some lip balm or even eczema crisis. Bottom line, I have tested a lot of thins and here is my top products and methods.
Exfoliation is not only for your body or your face. You should also scrub your lips in order to get rid of the dead skins creating this flaky effect when you put lipstick. Then use a good and strong moisturizer.
My favorite combination is this lip scrub from Lush and NUXE lip balm. I love these because they are both very good but because the ingredients are mostly natural.
However if you want a 100% natural option you can mix brown sugar with olive oil or coconut oil to create your scrub and use shea butter as a lip balm.
Did you know that tea is the most consummed beveradge in the world?
Ok, the fact that India and China are the main consumers and have the largest population is also responsible for this stastistic. However, the reason why this drink is so popular is because of its considerable healthy benefits, and both countries have used it in their traditional medicine for centuries!
I am definitely a tea addict. I drink green tea every morning, and sometimes twice to three times a day. I consider it as a secret weapon because it is super healthy and its benefits will help make youbeautiful from the inside and the outside. That is why I recommend drinking one cup of tea a day, and if possible replace your morning coffee with green tea.
"Une femme sans parfum est une femme sans avenir!"
A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future

According to Gabrielle Chanel, you are not fully dressed without...a perfume! Ok, I also belive the smile is mandatory, but having your scent is like a signature to your look. Frangrances awaken our senses, our memory and create all sorts of feelings.
However, you don't pick your perfume randomly. A perfume should suit your personality and "summarize you" in a scent. That is why picking a perfume is not an easy task but you certainly should not escape this step:
Our cosmetics DO have an expiry date.
If you pay attention to the packaging, you will sometimes notice a box with a number followed by the letter M (“24M”, “6M”…). This actually means that once you open your product you have 24 or 6 (etc) months to use it, but this is actually just an indicator. Companies have to use this system since 2005 in order to protect consummers...but also themselves.
What you should know is that it is highly recommended to follow this guidline but there are also others tricks to know if you can keep your products a little bit longer or not.
