Superbalanced foundation for combination skin Superbalanced Makeup, Clinique
This foundation has been produced since 1968 (since the creation of the Clinique brand), and everyone still loves it. The tone has a light texture of medium density - it fits perfectly on any skin, masking imperfections and giving it a natural glow "from the inside". It looks like a second skin and is completely invisible.
Superbalanced Makeup is a smart tool. The foundation can control oily sheen in the T-zone and moisturize those areas of the face that need it. Sometimes I apply with a brush, sometimes with the pads of my fingers, in any case it is applied and distributed very easily.
Foundation, helping to eliminate signs of hyperpigmentation, Even Better Makeup SPF 15, Clinique
It is the first foundation developed by dermatologists to even out skin tone and age spots over time. Hyperpigmentation is a common sign of aging, caused by sun damage to the skin or where pimples have healed. Even Better Makeup is suitable for women who want to not only mask age spots, but also get rid of them.
Skin tone is uniform and the skin itself gains a healthy glow. SPF 15 protects against UV radiation. The density of Even Better Makeup is average, it will mask everything well, but will not give the effect of gravity.
Light compact powder Almost Powder Makeup SPF 15, Clinique
Almost Powder Makeup uses a liquid-to-powder technology - during this process, the liquid evaporates, leaving a soft, dry texture. At the same time, small air bubbles are formed in the powder, which make it so silky and light. This powder takes twice as long to create as conventional powder - the formula goes through three pressing steps.
The powder creates a natural finish that conceals redness and uneven pigmentation. Helps maintain the moisture balance in the skin, so it is suitable for everyone: it does not dry out dry skin and removes oily sheen on oily. You can apply not only over the foundation, but also independently, especially in summer.
Universal mascara High Impact Mascara, Clinique
High Impact Mascara - for everyday make-up for all time! The composition includes a polymer base that automatically adds volume to the lashes. A brush with fine fibers combs each eyelash and paints it easily without gaps.
For me, this is an indispensable mascara - it has everything to draw attention to the lashes and at the same time emphasize their natural beauty.
Cream shadow stick Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes, Clinique
I always carry a creamy shadow pencil from the Chubby family with me. They are easy to use on the road - I apply with a stick on the eyelid and blend with the pads of my fingers.
Use for beautiful fast smokey in mono or as a long lasting base under dry eyeshadow. And light shades look great on the skin as a highlighter, for example, the shade of champagne Grandest Gold.
Blush Cheek Pop, Clinique
The Gerbera Flower Cheek Pop always cheers me up with its spring design. They are invisible on the face - you will not see any powdery texture or artificially created blush. The effect is as if you have just returned from a walk in the fresh air. The texture is silky and long-lasting - will last all day without smudging, fading or streaking. The palette contains two warm and two cold shades.
I love to apply this blush not only to the cheeks, but also to the area above the upper eyelids - this simple technique makes the look fresh and harmonious.
Clinique Pop lipsticks
Сlinique Pop lipsticks are a combination of lipstick and smoothing primer in one product. The texture smoothes lips, makes them more expressive and protects them from cracks. The shade of lipstick with a long-lasting creamy finish lasts all day, does not tarnish or fade. The palette of shades is huge and I really love combining two shades of lipstick in one makeup.
Сlinique Pop has a wide variety of textures: matte, lacquered, shiny, and even has oil for lips and cheeks.
