Really quick Heatherette look using Trio 2 and some lip products!
I used Perky paint pot on lid, Baby Petals eyeshadow on inner lid, V.I.P. eyeshadow on middle of lid (and lightly dusted on inner lid), Cassette eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Baby Petals eyeshadow above crease and on brow, and Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line. I wore True Romantic beauty powder blush on cheeks with Tenderdusk beauty powder (loose) to highlight. I had Hollywood Nights lipstick with Starlet Kiss lipglass on my lips.

YSL SUMMER 2008 | THE LIGHTS OF AFRICA
For summer 2008, Yves Saint Laurent Make-up finds its source in the heart of Africa and takes inspiration from the favorite themes of its creator to celebrate its 30th anniversary year in sublime color. A call to all the senses and an invitation to sensuality, Africa, the land of adventures, finds all its power concentrated in a collection that combines seductiveness and exoticism. Val Garland, Yves Saint Laurent Make-Up Artistic Advisor, creates a masterfully controlled play of African lights for an indomitable woman.
The Yves Saint Laurent woman radiates a magnetic spell, holding a mysterious tribal jewel, SOLEIL D’AFRIQUE bronzing powder, as her secret beauty accessory.

What do you think is essential to having a polished look? Is it well defined cheeks, mascara, or glossy lips? What brings it all together?
Darphin Fibrogene Line Response Nourishing Serum ($165.00) is designed with Omega 3, 6, and 9 to help minimize the appearance of your first signs of aging, lines, and wrinkles while moisturizing dry skin throughout the day. As part of the Fibrogene Line Response Nourishing line, which also includes a cream and balm (both $150 each), the serum is easily the most potent of the three options.
The Fibrogene line is targeted towards those with incredbily dry skin to help aleviate dry, tightened skin. It is also supposed to give skin a “healthy serving of lipids” and combat against initial signs of aging. I definitely consider this a luxury skincare product, and while it is still remarkably less than some other high-end brands and their serums, it is still up there on the scale.
The serum is best used during the morning and to help with tired or stressed out dry skin. According to Darphin, key ingredients include shea butter, coriander oil, wheat sphingolipids, olive extract, vitamin F, jojoba oil, siegesbeckia extract, oligopeptide, and rosemary oil. Sphingolipids are currently believed to help protect the skin at a cellular level against environmental factors.
But results are important, right? I have not quite experienced any true signs of aging, I don’t think, but you can bet I will be hoarding this product in preparation for when I do. I enjoyed it as a lightweight morning moisturizer, but I did fin that the scent/fragrance was a bit intense for a facial product, and to be honest, it reminded me of an elegant, luxurious older woman. It comes in a pump-style bottle, which means you do not expose the product to as much light as a screw-top jar. You only need three quick pumps to cover both face and neck, which helps extend the amount of usages you will get out of the product–always a plus.

Sunscreen is probably the most important part of your skincare regimen. It is the best way to prevent a rapid aging process before it starts, or to minimize its progress. The earlier one starts daily sun protection, the more thankful one will be in twenty years! If you are out in the sun often, you should be protecting any skin visible to the sun’s harsh rays with some sort of sunscreen. It is noteworthy to point out that not all sunscreens are made equal for all body parts. The face should be protected by a sunscreen product made specifically for the face, because most sunscreens used on the body will clog pores and may cause increased acne or oiliness. Facial sunscreens tend to have little to no fragrance and dry quickly to a non-greasy finish.
