My beauty favorites

lovelybylucy favorite beauty products

Remember you asking me all those questions? Some of you asked about my beauty routine and favorite beauty products, so I thought I’d share a few of my favorite beauty products today and have a little beauty talk.
I’m not much of a beauty guru, my make-up is pretty much the same everyday with a smokey eye every now and then as an exception. I do have a crazy amount of nail polishes, but somehow there are only a few that I tend to grab lately. So this is my beauty routine:

After the shower, the first thing I use is Chanel Hydra Beauty Gel Creme, my best discovery of the year. I used to use all kinds of different creams, mostly budget options or what was on promotion, because I didn’t want to spend too much on beauty, I’d rather buy clothes. I got a gift voucher from a beauty shop for my birthday though and decided to ask for some advice there and got this cream. At first I thought ‘now that is an expensive bit of cream, but ever since I started using it my skin has been so much better! I don’t even use foundation most of the time, just because my skin is good now thanks to Chanel. I definitely am coming back from not spending too much on beauty. I still don’t, but make an exception for this Hydra Beauty Gel since I just look much better when my skin is healthy.

Back to my routine: I don’t leave the house without mascara. My favorites are Lancôme Hypnose Drama (but I only get that when it’s on sale and I ask for gift vouchers for beauty stores for my birthday) and mostly I use L’Oréal Volume Million Lashes – which to my opinion is the best not too expensive mascara out there. Also: lots of eyeliner, I always get a budget eyeliner from Dutch store HEMA which works really well for me. That’s about it when it comes to my face. Sometimes I use a bit of foundation, but I prefer not too because it’s better for my skin not to.

Then for my hair, the only thing I do is blow-dry and straighten it and use Maroccan Oil, which is my hair miracle. It’s all I need really, makes my hair less dry, more shiny and in control, and softer as well. Also pictured above are my favorite perfume (even though I don’t use much perfume): Chance by Chanel, and my favorite nail polishes. I must own about 200 different nail polishes, but these are my favorites at the moment. Blanc from Essie, a blue one (Adora-bleu) from Bourjois that promises to last 10 days – on my nails it lasts about 6 but that’s more than any nail polish I own) and this grey one from USLU Airlines because I love grey and the quality of USLU polishes is really good as well.

I hope that answers your questions! It’s not a super interesting beauty story maybe but I just prefer to spend my money on fashion, more than on expensive perfumes or eyeliners. Do you spend a lot of money on beauty? Do you have some discoveries you can’t live without anymore?

    Yes! Maroccan oil is my savior when blowing out my hair and the bonus is the lovely smell.

    Just like you, I try not to spend too much on beauty products, in fact i barely use any makeup. I have the Lancome Hypnose but i don’t like the smell, so i prefer L’oreal mascaras, they’re pretty great! I cannot live without Burt’s Bees lip balm, and my other fave is the classic Nivea Creme, I have very dry and sensitive skin and this is the only one that really works for me. I’ve heard that Chanel products are addictive, the problem is that you can never stop using them, or your skin become crazy!
    Thanks for share dear, i love your skin :)
