Makeup according to the Clarins heiresses


It´s time to look natural. Of course that is a natural look with makeup. And a lot of prepping. There are four gorgeous heiresses to the famous French Clarins brand and they seem to be everywhere nowadays. Two of them, Claire (to the left) and Virginie Cortin-Clarins let us know which products they use for creating their natural look at the CFDA Awards, as told to the Clarins heiresses own makeup blog Needless to say, of course it´s all Clarins. But since it´s a great makeup and skincare brand I´m curious what they personally choose to use of all the products they can choose from. Many of these are classics, and two of my favourites are the Beauty Flash Balm and the primer Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch which gives velvety skin and a makeup that stay on all night. Do you have any of these as your favourites? What´s definitely coming onto my wish list is that new Eye shadow quartet, all shades looking lovely and weareable...

Claire uses:
Beauty Flash Balm mixed with Skin Illusion Foundation
Instant Sun Light Instant Smooth Compact Highlighter in Natural (as blush)
Bronzing Duo Mineral Compact (to give a sun-kissed glow to shoulders)
Instant Light Brush-On Perfector (to highlight cheekbones and eye’s outer corners)
Instant Definition Mascara
Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector Lip Gloss

Virginie uses:
Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch (as a primer)
Skin Illusion Foundation
Eye Quartet Mineral Palette in Odyssey
Instant Definition Mascara
Double Fix’ Mascara (for brows)
Gloss Prodige lip gloss

  1. It's funny how many things are needed to create the illusion of a bare face. :)
    Absolutely love love love the eye shadow palette - so pretty! Feeling very tempted to get one...

    Have a beautiful day!

  2. Jag återkommer ofta till Clarins. Just nu kör jag deras nattkräm, ögonkräm och serum. Plus självklart askungekrämen. Jag gillar Clarins därför att de inte luktar för mycket. Är lätta produkter. Effektiva. Prisvärda framförallt.
    Däremot har jag aldrig köpt makeup. Men den där ögonskuggspaletten ser galet snygg ut

  3. Lovely neutral colurs - the palette looks very tempting I'm a fan of Beauty Flash Balm - love it.
