{real life beauty } According to...

OUTER BEAUTY friend A; a gorgeous blond, natural beauty, 35+ who is known for her absolutely flawless skin and makeup (of course among other things:).

Tell us what you use daily and what are your favourite products that you always come back to?

Body: Bodylotion from Body Works, which I use instead of perfume, and the Stress relief actually works! Vanilla Verbena is it called.

Hair: Best hairspray is by Schwarzkopf and is called Glamour Queen, of course! I use it in medium and this is a dry hairspray that lasts all day and is easy to comb out.

Skin: YSL Teint resist for its lovely consistency and SPF 10. This smoothly goes onto the skin withouth being "cakey".
A foundation that I use for parties is Dermalogicas named Treatment foundation, for that glow!

Bronze: All time best product comes from ACO (only available in Swedish pharmacists). Gives the best colour and can be put over the ordinary foundation for that extra glow.
Another beautiful summer powder comes from Bodyshop and is called Golden Bronze. I put it on everything as a finishing touch. Amazing!

Eyes: Victorias Secret eyeshadow in white in the corner of the eye followed by Stilas shimmering "Kitten".
During summer time I use Lancôme Starlette 001 which is a beautiful loose silvery powder to wear under eye.
The mascara from Clinique, Lash power mascara long wearing formula, keeps its promise and there are no panda eyes in sight.
Best eyelash curler comes from...Bodyshop! I have thrown all others out, including Shu Uemuras...

I always use the same facial moisturizer, Skin soothing cream from Dermalogica, for day and night but complement with the serum Overnight Repair during night. The Cleansing gel from Dermalogica is also amazing, it takes away everything, even eye makeup. Love all-in-one!

Kiehls lipbalm is a life saver, especially during flying.
And, I could not live without all the wonderful lipglosses from Victorias Secret Beauty Rush.
