The power of a product called CCTM... and the beauty of Kennedy!

I've been on a CCTM roll - CCTM this, CCTM that... it's a hot mess. You know how sometimes putting foundation on seems like the most annoying thing ever?! Yeah? Me too. On those days, I roll with the power of my CCTM.

Please stop saying CCTM Emilie

Fine. So CCTM (ha!) is the Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer. It's basically the cooler and better big sister of your BB Cream/CC Cream, and here's why:

  • It's color correcting: meaning the greenish tint it has covers redness really beautifully (see photos below)
  • It decreases sun and age spots AND has a mechanical shield to protect you from the sun - like literally it works on your skin as you wear it. How amazing?!
  • It comes in 2 tints, and looks good on everyone. 
  • It smells lovely and has a great finish (not shiny or anything weird!)

Okay, now that I've told you why it's amazing, here are some actual photos: 

And more photos: 



Amazing isn't it? If you don't like foundation, but still want to cover up your redness and get an even tone all over your face, CCTM is the product for you (and the price is AWESOME).

Which brings me to lovely Kennedy and her makeover. I loved using CCTM and she later confirmed it lasted all day and she even worked out through it :) 

On Kennedy I focused alot on her eyes, because they're a beautiful blue. Check out these photos:

The red everyone woman needs...

So, as you know, I'm French.

And as a frenchwoman, I grew up knowing that all a woman needs (seriously, needs) to feel put together is a really good red. Now, not every red is the same! And not every girl should wear the same red - which is why finding the right red means buying that red! 

Don't let that red go!

If you're walking around any city in France, you'll see lots of women young and old, wearing a bright red lipstick. She may not even have any makeup on the rest of her face: wash your face, put your hair in a bun and hydrate your skin - that's all you need!

And of course, she'll be wearing a beautiful red paint on her lips. 

That’s awesome for those french ladies, but I’m pretty sure red doesn’t look good on me...
— most women

I know, I know. No fear my lovely one, I'll help you figure out what color will look best. If anything, be inspired by the freedom french women feel when they dress - you're allowed to dress up for any occasion and be okay with looking different!

THE BOLD RED LIP || The rest of your makeup is simple and natural 

French women are all about natural beauty: we like bushy eyebrows, messy hair, glowing skin and bright lips - what more do you need? 

To accomplish this look, you'll want to choose these brighter Lipsense colors: 

These reds are beautiful, bright and bold! They'll be sure to make your lips pop and be the centre of attention... Show me how they look on you!

The red with a little variance...

These are the reds I wear most days: especially these top colors! 




Let me tell you how to find out what your skin tone is!

  • If you can't tell if your veins are green or blue, you may have a neutral skin tone. If you have an olive complexion, you likely fall into this category 
  • If your veins appear green, you have a warm skin tone
  • If your veins appear blue or purple, you have a cool skin tone
