Hi my loves and happy Monday! For today I have a very special beauty post for you which I am so excited to share ever since we shot the images. Or even better, ever since I bought these beautiful Gucci make-up items in Paris during fashion week. I have been craving to get some make-up from their collection since they launched it last September. You know how much I love make-up and designers, so you can probably understand that some Gucci make-up was like heaven for me.
So while in Paris last October we really didn’t had the opportunity to visit a Gucci store because dad and Rob were joining us and well, they just don’t like shopping with us so much. The result: sad me and still there were Gucci beauty items on my wishlist.. When I heard we were going to Paris fashion week, one of the first things that came up in me where: ‘Oh we need to go to Gucci now!!’. Pretty insane huh? The problem is, you don’t have the beauty line (except for the fragrances) in every country, like Holland. So I just had to take my change to get my hands on some items.
Happily my mom shared this thought so when it was finally shopping time we started looking for the Gucci store. When we arrived at the Rue du Faubourg St. Honoré we ran upstairs to see their make-up collection. Love at first sight, really. I just totally fell in love with the print on each item. Also the chic signature black-gold combination made me melt away. The hardest thing was definitely to choose because I had to stay realistic, I couldn’t take everything with me. I don’t use eyeshadow a lot so I wasn’t going to buy any of them, same for the powders even through I was dying to get one of them. Maybe next time..
For now I bought a beautiful soft pink lipstick and spring ready nail polish, just because you can’t have enough from both. I love the soft texture of the lipstick and how it gives this charming glow. For the shoot I wore also a Gucci inspired look with a floral trousers from Zara and this way too cute crop top from LookBook Store. I have been quite obsessed lately with this webshop, so you should really have to take a look! I am sure you will like it too :). Wish you a great week and I hope you loved these photos as much as I do! xxx
