The right products for my “Bird of Paradise” makeup


Mascara Inimitable waterproof Zest by Chanel, €30

A sparkling yellow mascara to apply just on the tip of the eyelashes to open the eyes.

Blue Lagoon palette by Dior, €55

Dior was inspired by the changing reflections of peacock feathers to design the summer 2013 version of their famous 5-color palette for “summer chic” makeup.

Gloss Caprice, Fascinante and Paradise by Dior Addict, €30 each

Filled with micro-pearls, these glosses capture the light without a "wet lips" effect, for transparent but ultra-luminous lip makeup

“Hollywood in my swimming pool” varnish by Lollipops, 12.50€

With its elongated brush, easy to apply this nail polish whose color is reminiscent of the feathers of a parrot! Paraben-free, preservative-free and phenoxyethanol-free, they do not damage the nails and are even suitable for sensitive skin!

Green Neon and Pink Neon Nail Polish from Arcancil, €6.90 each

No need for a white base to achieve a neon effect with these nail polishes:a single coat is enough for a vibrant and electric color.

Revlon Flushed and Coral Reef cream blush, €11.90 each

The creamy texture of these blushes melts into the skin before turning into powder for light makeup. Coral for fair skin, bright pink for dark skin, the colors are adjustable for a more or less discreet result

Bronze Godess Palette by Estée Lauder, €48

With its five eyeshadows in trendy colors and its mirror, this palette is our best ally for tropical makeup. The little extra:the brown shadow turns into an eyeliner thanks to the fine brush, and the coral and gold shadows can also be applied as a blush to highlight the tan!

Green Lagoon Mascara by Bourjois, €8.05

A smart mascara that slips into all bags thanks to its mini size, while ensuring maximum volume on the eyelashes. Its Caribbean-style turquoise color is perfect for highlighting all eye colors.
