Hi, I’m Anna Lorena. Originally from Romania and currently living in London, I’m the creative mind and founder of LORENNE BLAU, an e-destination for everyone who loves fashion, luxury, lifestyle, beauty and travel. As a young entrepreneur, I live by the motto “Dream. Love. Live. Smile. Inspire. Believe.” and aim at making a difference in people’s lives around the world by proving that no dream is too big as long as you truly want it and work for it.
When it comes to my beauty regime, I always make sure I use quality products that add to the skin a luxurious touch. As all of us use a variety of beauty products, I thought I’ll keep it simple and stick to five that make me happy whenever I have them on.
Some of my favourites:
Guerlain’s Perles d’Étoile are light revealing pearls of powder which are pretty similar to the well-known Météorites. However these ones have been especially designed to enhance the complexion after nightfall. To be honest with you, I also use them during the day for a touch of natural glow. The pearls provide a soft, silky, and finely-milled with a low-level sheen without any over-the-top sparkle, which places them somewhere between a highlighter and finishing powder. Definitely a product I recommend, plus who can resist the lovely packaging?
As precious as a jewel, the 820 Rouge Parade from Guerlain is definitely a classic red lipstick. When you’ll be wearing it believe me you’ll turn heads! I love a red lip both during the day and at nighttime as it takes you out of your comfort zone and at the same time gives you confidence. Plus, you can keep your make-up simple and just glam up by applying this beautiful lipstick. Its intense colour, smooth and moisture make it one of my faves.
The Hypnôse Doll Eyes mascara from Lancome provides lengthening and separation. The cone shaped brush is dense with thin plastic bristles and works well for reaching corner and bottom lashes which provides the illusion of a wide-eyed look. This is one of the mascaras I always make sure I have as part of my beauty set as it leaves my eyelashes looking natural.
Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Éclat Collector is a must-have! I’ve been using Touche Éclat for ages now and I thought going for the gold and leopard pattern this time just to make it more fun. This concealer does its job and leaves your skin illuminated. It definitely is a beauty essential every woman needs in her make-up bag.
Last but not least, Essie’s vanity fairest nail polish is a sheer pastel pink polish with subtle iridescence which I’ve fallen in love with the first moment I’ve seen it. A really versatile nail polish as it’s like having 2-3 nail polishes in one depending on how many coats you apply. This is always my go to for a subtle, feminine look.
