The most important thing in the end is the skin. And I therefore would never use anything else than the medical products from Jan Marini. It's truly amazing what they can do and I won't lie if I say that I maybe got 5000 people to use it daily, through my patients and all the people around me. They are all addicted by now. And why would you not be when they make all the difference. I'm a perfect example and proof that it works and let's say that I'm very sceptic to skin products in general. Until now, I have never met anything else that lives up to my expectations.
Products in any domain have to go through a lot of trouble before I would ever conider recommending them, especially for skin products, because those make the surface work or not. And if you have problems with your skin, I suggest you book a counsulation HERE and they'll help you combine the different strong, medical ingrediens that will truly help you.
Regarding makeup, I've used the same colours and brands for as long as I can remember. I know by now what looks good on me and I know what kind of result I am looking for. I hate foundations: that sticky feeling is not for me and I like to see the skin. So I use a very, very thin layer of mineral powder instead and you can hardly tell that I am wearing anything at all. For blush, I wear the same mineral powder in something called "Warmth", which just give my cheeks some a little more colour.
I have very light eyebrows and eyelashes and that's why I colour my eyebrows every second week at home and put black mascara on my eyelashes. I seem to be the only one left in the universe that is not very fond of these super long, artificial eyelashes that everyone has nowadays. I actually think it looks prettier without them because it looks so much more natural.
For my lips, I won't ever leave home without some colour on them. I like a natural beige/pink kind of enhancer on the lips and therefore use a good pen and some beige lipstick above.
And that's it. It takes approximately 5 minutes to get ready and I like that.
- Medical skin products from Jan Marini (I use four different ones)
- Mineral blush and powder from I.D
- Mascara, Diorshow from Dior.
- Chanel pen and lipstick.
