Haha not mine, not yet Last week I was so happy to attend my cousin’s wedding, it’s been a while since I’ve been to a wedding of someone close that I was really excited and happy for. I chose a black silk midi dress by Maya Negri, this is what it looked like on the hanger:
And I started getting ready with the basics – my favorite beauty products at the moment:
Caudalie Gentle cleanser, their perfect Beauty Elixir which I use instead of a toner, but not before a good scrub with Dermalogica Daily Exfoliator, that makes my skin soft and feeling, hmm, new, and finished with my all time favorite moisturizer, definitely the best one I ever had – Cream De La Mer.

After all that I got dressed and went on to the makeup stage, which, I have to admit it, is so much fun! I hardly ever spend more than 2 minutes a day on this, so I really tried to be patient this time and spend a little more, hoping for some nice results. I placed these products near the mirror:
Diorskin Forever foundation - great texture, super natural coverage;
Diorskin powder - I’ve been using this one for a while now. It’s the softest and makes my skin look silky;
Chanel blush - a favorite for sure. Super natural glow;
Givenchy Mascara - I am in love with this one. It’s amazing: makes great separated eyelashes and the best part is that it’s easy to remove.
Mac Fluidline eyeliner – I got to test this product only recently and I’m in love. I’ve never been good with eyeliner, I used to think it’s so hard to use! But this one was just made for me. It comes in a small cute jar, and it’s super easy to use. With the tiniest brush I have, I created the thinnest line you can imagine, super accurate and beautiful;
Mac Cream Colour Base – best highlighter I used so far. The texture is so soft and the result is so natural yet effective. I used it instead of eye shadows, it’s gorgeous;
And my favorite lipgloss line – Dior Addict lipgloss in red. It only looks super bold but I promise it’s not, it’s super slick and full of glow. Most importantly – it lasts on my lips for hours!
And my two latest Mac Cosmetics discoveries – the Fluidline and the highlighter -
Finishing up with Womanity perfume and body lotion by Thierry Mugler -
Makeup results are here!
Finishing with my traditional elevator pic from the way back and a picture of me and my favorite cousin, he took it with his iPhone at the wedding, it’s a funny one
