Ma Poule Bonne Mine

By Charlotte Malka

The freezing cold of the New York winter is starting and our mine is already feeling it!

I call it having a gray complexion!

In the morning, even if we put on make-up with our essential make-up, concealer, foundation, loose powder, Terracota, blush and Highligter, the little grey mine is sometimes hard to forget !!!

What to do ???

That’s where Ma poule’s advice comes in!

Today we’re talking about healthy glow tips, and we want the effect right away !

Several categories of cosmetics are available to us to remedy this single concern, I have tested several and I give you my Chouchous.

In the self-tanning category my preference goes to Clarins drops.

3 to 5 drops of this elixir of happiness mix with your moisturizer every morning and you’ll tell me all about it! It’s the winning cocktail of the winter. Be careful, it is still a self-tanner. And even if it has more natural effects than classic self-tanners and that it acts in a progressive way, do not forget to wash your hands carefully after application.

This magical product from Clarins can be found everywhere, Ulta, Sephora and department stores.

If you need a healthy glow in the next second I found what you need at Drunk Elephant, my favourite cosmetic brand.

Hybrid between a makeup and an anti-pollution skin care it will give you a good look in the immediate future, it’s the Dbronzi from Drunk Elephant.

This is the opportunity for me to introduce this cosmetic brand that has changed my life in the last two years !!! All the products of this Canadian brand are to die for, this one is part of my top 5 and never leaves me !

A few drops to mix with your daily moisturizer, why not the Protini of the same brand (my favorite at home) or a little drop by itself!

Personally I use it alone but sparingly because it works really well, good looks guaranteed!

The little extra of this product is its great value for money, with a tube at only 36$ you will be safe for at least 6 months.
The whole Drunk range is available exclusively at Séphora.

In pure makeup, the Terracota by Guerlain remains for me the sure value for a good look, and it smells so good Guerlain products!

Sometimes it takes time to choose the right shade, but once it’s done, you can relax…

Finally, still in the make up business, I recently fell in love with a three in one product from Shiseido.

Blush / lipstick base and eye shadow.

It enhances the complexion almost at the end of makeup, we love it, and my girlfriend obviously recommends it! Available at Sephora!

Finally I can’t leave you without telling you to watch out for the sun! Sworn enemy number one of the skin, it is the main cause of its aging, so even if we like to look good we wear a min 30 sunscreen every day.  My recommendation, baby: the invisible shield from Glossier, as light as it is pleasant, will become one of your best beauty friends!

Kisses to all and look forward to new cosmetic adventures.
