Clarins Eyeshadow Palette

Clarins Have Just released an eyeshadow palette which will rival urban decay’s Naked Palette and I have to say I am so far very impressed.

Clarins Eyeshadow Palette - 01

I have used the Naked Palette so much I am on my 2nd one in my Kit.

Clarins description of the Palette “Beige, taupe and brown are featured in a harmony of 10 eye shadows which bring out the beauty of women’s eyes while supporting human rights and the environment.”

This palette was created as part of an initiative to minimise our environmental impact: it features carefully selected materials and reusable packaging.

In addition to beautifying eyes, Clarins has joined forces with Pur Projet and has committed to planting 10,000 trees for medical or cosmetic use, which will help revive the Kuntanawa culture (Amazon). – See more here

What skin care regime do you use morning & evening?
I always cleanse, tone and moisturise morning and night, I love simple & nivea products and I use a serum from Aldi under my moisturiser it’s amazing!

Do you have a must have skin care item?
My must have item would be sudocream for any blemishes.
What is your favourite beauty treatment ?
 I like to get my eyebrows threaded for that clean look, although it hurts like hell

Favourite foundation?
I use mac foundation for nights out but I usually wear Garnier BB cream during the day.

Favourite make up brand?
I love MAC foundations and lipsticks and then I use Urban Decay Naked eyeshadows.
Can’t live without?
Can’t live without mascara, feel naked without it, I use Loreal Teloscopic. I love Prada perfumes, especially the new Prada Candy!

If you had €200 what skin care or make up would you purchase?
If I had 200e to spend I’d buy a variety of mac and Urban Decay make up.

Does make up change how you feel about yourself?
While living in Dubai I barely wore any makeup during the day so it made me get used to looking at myself with no make up so I feel good with or without ( once mascara is involved:))
And lastly what’s your favourite make up look?
 I love a strong smokey eye and nude lip on a night out!
