Before I moved from Germany to Norway I had a big farewell party at my place. My four suitcases were packed and it was less than 48 hours until my flight. A couple of days before that people had asked me what presents they could possibly give to a person with overweight luggage and who had just tried to get rid of as many possessions as possible. Maybe no presents at all I would say? But my friends are persisent. Something light and useful was on their mind. And once I actually started thinking about it – useful and light? – it didn’t take me long to figure it out. My all time make-up favourites were almost used up and so I made a wish. You can see my best friends from Mac in the photo below.
It’s the Select Moisture Cover Concealer (I’m an NW 15) and the Lip pencil in Soar.
Both products last for ages and are always in my purse. After I had spent years trying to find the perfect concealer, I stumbled upon the Select Moisturecover. It’s invisible, lightweight but still offers enough coverage to hide dark under eye circles and skin imperfections. The trick is to layer it (thin layers!) until you achieve the perfect result.
The lip pencil in Soar has a perfect colour for anybody. I naturally have very red lips and it almost looks like my actual lip colour when I wear it. If your lips are on the lighter side, you can simply use less pressure to get a perfect result. The colour is just so natural that it will suit any skin tone.
I have to tell you that my friends got me more than just this in the end. They actually gave me framed photos, scrapbooks, video messages and long letters. My already overweight luggage was so heavy that I could hardly drag it along from the car to the check-in counter. But at least I have the full package now: Useful light things and lovely memories. Amazing friends, huh?
