Vitalumière loose powder foundation, Chanel.
So, during summer I rarely use foundation as I think it’s quite heavy on the skin. However when fall arrives yet again I want something to take away that gloominess and even out the skin tone. I’ve used mineral foundations before but felt like it dries out my skin a bit and for me it’s important to have something really light on my face. I recently got a test of the Vitalumière loose powder foundation from Chanel and this is DEFINITELY a new favorite of mine. It’s super light, doesn’t clog pores and just a tad of it is enough to get the amount of coverage.

So, I’m back! I’m sorry for the lack of updates, I’ve been working every day lately. From now on the updates will be better! I also have a new assistant by my side whom I’m going to introduce you to within shortly so make sure to check in soon again!

I’m really thrilled about the new line of beige and light pink from Chanel. That shade of this nail polish seems quite perfect, no? Also, I’m sort of feeling lip gloss again. I haven’t worn it for years but I’m suddenly in the more for a more polished look.
During the weekends I make sure to take extra good care of my skin, especially since our office enviroment have quit a bad effect on my skin, I definitely need that extra boost (I’m really trying to drink a lot of water, get fresh air at lunch a having my facial mist ready at all times, maybe you guys have more suggestions of how to keep your skin in good shape despite of bad ventilation and hours spent in front of an computor? Holla!). So, this Saturday I actually went to the amazing spa at Grand Hotel in Stockholm, their steam sauna is the best and as usual I also did my Sunday beauty routine. For the body I use this super creamy gentle body exfoliant with the scent of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle which I rinse off with the help of an exfoliating brush. Right now I prefer to put on the body oil from Björk & Berries after but I don’t always go for the same product to rehydrate, I could as easily go for the firming body lotion from Clarins or Crème pour le corps from Chanel.
For the face I use my true companion from Clarisonic, as seen above. I’m telling you, there’s a reason people can’t stop talking about this electronic exfoliating brush, twice a week does it for me, no more, no less. I combine it with the refreshing gel cleanser from the same brand or Chanel’s Mousse Douceur. After that I make sure to rehydrate my skin with Le Lift Crème fine. Now, I don’t wear this day cream everyday but after exfoliation I need a bit more intense moisture and this one does the work. I usually wear a bit lighter day cream for everyday but at nights I always wear a cold pressed Fair Trade Marula oil (totally obsessed). Now, I’m ready for Monday, how about you?
