HD Elixir & HD Primer
It is very important to maintain the radiance and the healthy glow of the skin. Before applying makeup, your mom must prepare her skin by applying HD Elixir; a unique serum that offers instant and long-lasting hydration to the skin; it also hides the puffiness, fine lines and signs of fatigue. It is then recommended she applies HD Primer before the foundation. HD Primer is a microperfecting primer which nourishes and softens the skin, creating a glowing effect. It creates a protective layer on the skin allowing the foundation to glide on easily and to last longer.
Liquid Lift Foundation
It is advisable for mothers to use liquid foundations to avoid highlighting the fine lines on the skin. Make Up For Ever experts recommend the Liquid Lift Foundation because it has a “lifting” effect which will smooth out wrinkles and tone down signs of tiredness. It is also suitable for dry, tired or mature skin.
To naturally hide dark circles and minor complexion alternations, it is recommended to use Lift Concealer as its formula improves skin tones and smooths the lines around the eyes.
Matte shades eyeshadows would be perfect for mothers as they avoid enhancing the wrinkles. It is also advisable to choose nude and earthy colors such as shades of beige and brown.
Especially adapted to sensitive and thin skin around and inside the eye, the Kohl Pencil gives depth and intensity to the eyes. Its particularly gentle formula is tolerated by the most sensitive eyes, its soft and smooth texture blends effortlessly and keeps the skin around the eyes hydrated.

Your mother will definitely love this. Aqua Brow, the waterproof eyebrow corrector that fills, defines and lengthens brows. It gives a natural result which remains flawless throughout the day and holds up under all conditions.
Lip Line Perfector
To ensure that lips are defined and that the colour of her lipstick lasts longer, we recommend the Lip Line Perfector as it will act as an invisible barrier, keeping the colour inside the lip line and preventing lipstick from bleeding and feathering.
Rouge Artist Intense and Rouge Artist Natural
Make Up For Ever experts recommend you choose natural nude colors to enhance natural radiance. Choose creamy textures for the lipstick and avoid shiny and dark colors. Choose from their wide range of Rouge Artist Intense and Rouge Artist Natural lipsticks available in 100 shades to suit any outfit, occasion, or mood.

Neat! Visit The Beauty Department for full tool list and detailed steps.
Girls are always on the look for something new to spice up their look. I came across makeup DIY on The Beauty Department and thought of sharing it. You could mix up any liner + stud color combination and apply it the same way. What do you girls think? Yay or nay?
Loved how subtle and naturally gorgeous this makeup is. Here’s how to get the look.
I love high-street fashion! And one of my top favorites is H&M! So I wanted to know what your opinion would be? How often do you shop at their stores? And what is the number one, or ten, items that you can’t live without? For me, I’d say, summer dresses, prints & colors variety, their liquid eyeliner pen, and of course, their bronzer! What would it be for you? Share with me dolls! Xx
