Biologique Recherche

Beauté Pacifique
Biologique Recherche
is a french brand that has been around for a long time, specialized in skin care treatments at their salon in Paris and offering high end products to bring home that salon feeling.
However for me this brand was a new discovery, I never heard of it before even though I’ve been a beauty blogger for soon 12 (!!!) years and I never tried their products. But when I saw the products I got that wow feeling, the packaging looks so cool and unique, like old medicine bottles, I just had to take some photos and add my editing filters onto it.
I got help picking out some products as a trial start to see if they work with my skin and if so I might deep further into this brand and try some more products. My skin is so sensitive these days that I have to give my skin a gentle start to any new products.

So moving on to Biologique Recherche salong, all I can say is omg… I wanna spa there, eat there, sleep there, heck it I even wanna move in!!!
It looks like heaven on earth, the interior is flawless and so chic. I can’t imagine a more perfect place to check in for a beauty make up. Which I in fact really need after not feeling well for quite some time. But back to the tones, the golden, neutral interior is created by a french interior designer called Joanne de Lepinay.

I will update you dolls on how I like the products and if any of you have tried the products, let me know what you think in the comments! Xx Louise

THROWBACK GLAM LOOK

ombre eeeyes

Hi dolls! Since I have not been feeling well I have not been able to do any make up tutorials :'( I’m really sad about this and I miss posting make up looks here on the blog. So I thought why not repost this old throwback post! It is quite old but I still love this look so much so love to share it again ♥ I have attached the original text below with some added notes and tips as well!

//

I would probably say this is one of my all time favorites make up looks.
I have not seen this look anywhere else, instead I just came up with it a few years ago while messing around swatching different shadows trying to be creative (lol!).
The ombre effect is when you use a darker eye shadow in the outer corner of your eyes and using a much lighter shadow in the inner corner. Just make sure to use plenty of eye shadow primer first so the shadows really attaches onto the skin for the final blending. I like to first use a bright shadow all over my eye lids and underneath my eyebrows, then I dab on a little bit of primer on top of that and then go onto applying the two different tones.
The final touch is using a colors that is somewhere in between the two other tones used, for this look I used a golden color. You gently apply the third color in the middle of the eye lids and blending up and down, not side to side as many make up artists do. You do not want to blend to much so you literally blend out the contrast.
You might think to yourself now like “whoa hold up that’s waaaay to much for me”, but trust me when I say anyone can learn how to do this, just practice!

You could probably do this with any colours but I love the bronze/green/beige colors for this. You can try and create this look with any golden shimmery eye shadow, a light beige eye shadow, a bronze eye shadow (preferably with green undertone) and a dark brown bronze shadow. But I must say the “Magic Touch” by BareMinerals is just peeerfect!

This ombre application technique really makes your eyes stand out and sparkle a bit extra, without going to dark with the colours so it looks intimidating. I have even received compliments from guys on this look, one told me “wow your eye shadow is so perfect” haha!! And that coming from a guy with no make up interest, is def a big thumbs up.
I have listed all the products I used below and done the break down of my tricks and tips.

LIPSvalentines day make up tutorial glam ombre eyes

I  start off mostiruzing my lips thoroughly with the Hemp Lip Conditioner from Body shop. Using a lot of lipliners makes the lips dry out superquickly, so make sure to moisturize a lot before doing this look!
I use three different shades of lip liner all over my lips. I use a darker nude shade (1C by MakeupForever) in the corners of my lips and on the sides, a light shade of nude (02 Pink Petal by MaxFactor) over the cupids bow and a brighter shade (1 Nude by Viva la diva) in the middle of my lips. Giving them an illusion of looking fuller and more plump! I finished off the look with some totally clear lip gloss from L’oréal.

BASEvalentines day make up tutorial glam ombre eyes

Primer No7 Instant Illusion wrinkle filler
Foundation
Sensai Cellular Anti Age Performance in “Almond beige” (I do not like this one anymore, it’s too heavy for young skin and made my skin break out in rashes…)
Concealer Mac Pro Long wear concealer in “NC15 and NC20″ (Also do not like this underneath my eyes anymore since it creases too much)
Concealer stick Maybelline CC “Colour Corrector for redness” in green for colour correction. It covers up blemishes and birthmarks insanely well (!)
Highlighter L’oréal shimmer powder in “Rose Insolence 03″
For contour I used a heavy cream foundation but I didnt like the product at all so I won’t be writing about it.

Also I used a beauty blender to work with the base products.

So I went through my blog archives and found these photos from about a year ago. I think this is one of my all time favorite outfits and still I have not worn it more than twice, such a shame!
I loved that bag so much but the strap on it broke so had to return it :'( I haven’t been feeling in the mood to take pictures lately but maybe this summer I will feel more like taking photos again and showing outfits!

Micellar water

bioderma micellar water

As time goes by more and more brands are launching their own versions of this clear make up removing water. But what the heck is really micellar water!?

Well it turns out that micellar water (which originally comes from France) is made out of tiny oil molecules suspended in soft, clean water. It is the small oil molecules that are in fact the micelles. Okay so it’s oil blended with water but done in a unique way, at least that’s my spontaneous take on it. Oil is an excellent make up remover and it is also hydrating so the claims on the bottle to be both make up removing and hydrating does not sound so groundbreaking then. Instead of creating a foamy solution that may be very harsh towards the skin this water feels more gentle and soothing. It states on the bottle to leave the solution on afterwards but I have always washed it off. it is just something with leaving a cleanser on my face that feels slightly wrong.

“The technology of it is actually quite old, dating back from research at the University of Bristol in 1913. Micelles are attracted to dirt, grime, and oil, and they draw out impurities without drying out your skin” explains dermatologist & Simple skincare expert Dr. Debra Luftman.
micellar water
There is also three different colors of micelles waters, pink for daily as make up remover, blue to moisturizes skin or remove waterproof make up, green to combats oily skin and only to be used in areas with blemishes.

So far I have only tried these waters by the french brand Bioderma. I’ve tried all three colors now and my favoruite are the pink and green one. However I’m sad to discovered I think the pink one is causing my skin to break out. Or it is the foundation I have been using before removing the make up :'(
My skin have become quite sensitive during the last months few months and it feels like every time I use foundation my skin breaks out (so annoying). I wouldn’t want to put anyone off trying the pink micellar water from Bioderma.
I do love the soothing way it removes make up so I won’t be switching to a regular make up remover anytime soon, but I might need to try out different brands and also a new foundation to see what’s the cause of the break outs.

STILL HERE.

Hi dolls,
I’ve been feeling so conflicted lately, mainly about what I am going to do with my blog. I’ve debated it over and over again in my head. One thing I have decided is that for now I will only focus on writing about beauty, make up and inspiration (mainly interior) but also health and health tips. Might even take up food blogging again!
I never felt totally comfortable with writing about my self like so many other bloggers do, maybe in the future this feeling will change and I want to share more. I do miss the days when my blog RightNow use to be totally anonymous and nobody knew it was me. This was back in 2006-2007 and it was so liberating to just write freely, not that I wrote anything particularity interesting or personal, it was just a feeling of being anonymous that I liked.

There is one thing I kind of miss writing and that is my debate post, may it be to warn you dolls about some dangerous beauty products, things to avoid or how to get rid of fake people in your life.
I used to write a lot of these posts before but in Swedish. I think it’s time to bring this back, I have discovered that a very famous skincare brand that are sold in big stores and online stores contain formaldehyde in ALL of their skin care products!! Also many big bloggers have been doing collabs with them which is so disgusting, they are getting paid to write about a brand that has a known cancerous ingredients in it. How can you sleep at night knowing you are promoting something dangerous to your readers, seriously annoys me…

I have also discovered that one of Sweden’s most famous pharmacy’s are currently selling two  products (from two different brands) both containing cancerous ingredients. One of them is formaldehyde and the other one is palm oil. Yeah I think I found my calling again lol, it is time to uncovered some nasty parts about this beauty industry that actually makes people sick… Stay tuned dolls stay tuned xoxo Louise
