|Yes you’ve seen this little wonder here before, but it can be used not only under makeup, but also on top of it.|
While in Chicago with temperatures flirting with zero and the wind chill factor considerably below, I was suddenly confronted with a problem I never experience in France, very dry skin.
Of course I glopped on layers of moisturizer every night before bed, did a couple of all nighters with my Avène moisturizing mask and in desperation even slathered on some Vaseline during the day. After a few days, all was well on that front.
However, the “glow” I usually have after applying my makeup, even on my now normal skin, was missing. What to do? As you know, I apply Clarins Baume Beauté Eclair over my Eucerin day cream before applying my makeup and my complexion appears plumpy, healthy and yes, “glowy”. This time it didn’t work, or, it didn’t work to my satisfaction.
|Again, yes you’ve seen this product in this space several times and I’ve even mentioned its “other” use, but if you haven’t tried it and your skin is feeling dry and drab, please do.|
Then I remembered what one of the skin care experts at Clarins told me during an interview. “Another way to use the baume is to squirt a pea-size amount in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together and pat, pat, pat the cream on top of your makeup,” she said. “I always recommend this method if you plan to be photographed,” she added. “The results are gorgeous.”
|A touch of this stuff on the cheeks guarantees a certain glow and on the lips it’s probably better than any lip balm that exists. It didn’t occur to me to use it until I found a jar among Ella’s baby products.|
I tried the over instead of under and it worked. I got my glow back.
