Elina Gaiman @eli_geiman, a beauty blogger and mom of 4 sons, told BeautyHack what products will make your skin perfectly even, your hair thick, and your makeup simple and stylish.
My favorite Lierac body product (2521 rubles), phytolastil gel, which prevents stretch marks and maintains skin elasticity. As a result of use, the skin becomes smooth and soft. The gel is quickly absorbed and does not remain a film on the skin. The texture of the product is very pleasant.
Several times a week I do lymphatic drainage massage with a dry brush. Move from the bottom up from the fingertips and up to the neck. This procedure saves me from puffiness. Also I definitely use facial massagers. At the moment I am using a set from Beauty Style (2290 rubles), which includes gouache and a face roller. I think this is a great replacement for going to the beautician.
As a daily facial cleansing, I definitely use 3Lab Perfect cleansing foam (2099 rubles) and a two-step cleanser from the Japanese brand Sensai - Creamy Soap (2700 rubles).
In addition, I really love using the scrub and face cream from the Dr. Barbaba Sturm (from 5193 rub.). The cream is simply extraordinary, very light and absorbed quickly. Natural and budget Hydrating Day Cream from Weleda (687 rubles) gives a very nourishing saturation of the skin.
I try to apply different lotions on a daily basis. My favorite is Sensai cellular performance pink lotion, pleasant on texture and moisturizing for the skin (3675 rubles). And on days when there is no sun, I apply Biologique Recherche lotion (5100 rubles) against pigmentation. Serum Age Reverse Hyaluronic Micro Caps Nannic (5600 rubles) with hyaluronic acid, which is also my must have, has a light texture and immediately moisturizes the skin.
The first aid was Lucas' Papaw Ointment lip balm for me (490 rubles). It is used by surfers and skiers as it is ideal for those with dry lips. And the Neutrogena brand has a Lip Plumping serum for lips (850 rubles) with a special roller tip, with which you can massage your lips. By the way, one of the signs of dry lips is not drinking enough water.
In America, I experiment a lot with different brands, where I got acquainted with the Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector (740 rubles). In addition to the fact that it perfectly covers up bruises under the eyes, thanks to it, the skin around the eyes is lightened.
I also pay a lot of attention to hair care. Choosing the right comb is important. The Japanese comb Majestic helps me maintain the growth and thickness of my hair. If effective restoration is required, I definitely use Eliokap shampoo and lotions (from 3250 rubles) for the scalp, and Crescina ampoules always remain my constant assistant in the fight against hair loss. I very rarely dye my hair, so I always carefully select my hair care products. This is how I discovered professional care products from the Oribe and Kevin Murphy brands. And if your hair needs nutrition and hydration, my ideal option is a mask from Earth Science Olive & Avocado (1380 rubles).
As a daily make-up, I love using bb creams. For myself, I note the cream of the 3Lab Aqua BB brand (4250 rubles). It has a factor protection of 40 and gives a very beautiful, rested complexion, slightly tanned. The texture of the cream is light, so it hides imperfections of the skin poorly. If you need a dense tone, then I recommend Erborian (3690 rubles), I have a Nude shade. Also one of my favorite bb-creams is Clinique Anti - Blemish Solutions (2990 rubles). I use the brushes Japonesque (from 1222 rubles), weightless and soft, ideal for light makeup.
To create the perfect contouring in my cosmetic bag, you can find the Kat Von D Shade and Light palette (3510 rubles), it features beautiful shades for facial sculpting. I also like a palette of correctors from Maybelline - Master Camo (499 rubles), I take a light shade (100).
For eye makeup, I prefer to use Make Up Forever liquid shadows (1700 rubles), I especially love the shades i80, i50 and l54. Sometimes I combine them to create a golden bronze hue. And I also have one life hack: I use the Stila brand , Kitten color - Shimmer and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow (1800 rubles), which gives a very beautiful pink-golden hue. I apply it on the upper eyelid pointwise. Also, I love the Urban Decay eyeshadow. My favorite and unchanging palette - Naked 3 Urban Decay (3585 rubles). I also love the shadow Bobbi Brown (2082 rubles), they have an incredible color Champagne Quartz No. 2with a metallic shade that makes for a very beautiful and expressive look. And if glitter is not enough for me, I also use Baby Peach for a subtle glitter effect.
More recently, I discovered the Danessa Myriks Beauty brand. Highlighter Illuminating Veil (1800 rubles) of this brand gives a light, beautiful and at the same time very lasting effect.
For eyeliner, I love to use Tom Ford pencils (RUB 3170). I have all sorts of shades: classic black, my favorite color 03 Metallic Mink, which is perfect for brown eyes), 05 Bruise and 06 Midnight (burgundy and blue). The result is incredible when you use the last two pencils together.
Mascara Benefit They're real (1036 rbl.) Is in the top of my favorite tools. I have one story connected with her. I first tested it in a store and after a long day I forgot to wash it off before bed. When I woke up and my eyelashes were in perfect condition, I realized that this is an incredible mascara with a long lasting wow effect.
I emphasize the eyebrows with eyebrow shadows Bobbi Brown, 59 shade Flint (2400 rubles). The eyeshadow gives a natural shade. I also want to share the eyebrow tool that I tried recently - Soap Brows (about 2600 rubles). In fact, it really looks like a soap that needs to be diluted with a little water and applied to the eyebrows. Soap Brows is very shape- locking.
I also want to tell you about the Becca brand (2030 rubles), which I love very much. They have all sorts of tints for cheeks, lips and eyes. My favorite Fig is a waterproof, nude pigment with a soft, creamy texture. And for a more evening look, I use the shade of Raspberry.
