I surely belong in the category >WOMEN< who like to use make-up every day.  Sometimes more, sometimes less and a 5-minute make-up for the baker is enough.  It has something of a beautiful dress for the day that belongs to me as much as it is to wear.  What I actually never leave out is the thorough cleaning in the evening.  I just don’t go to bed with make-up.  It’s like taking off if you will.  I believe that the skin ages even faster as a result and also needs the time of sleep with good care for regeneration.

But apart from these routines, I also need this trial and error.  So to test and see what’s new on the market and maybe there is something that will give my skin an even more beautiful dress.  Readers who follow my blog know that I had a cooperation with Brigitta B. Behrends, whose decorative cosmetics were presented in the various articles.  And I have to say, I keep coming back to it.

Brigitta B. Behrends – Make-up 50Plus

I have recently tested a few other make-ups, including

– the new Super Stay from Maybelline 30H (color 05 Light Beige)

Probabely I’ve chosen the wrong color, anyway this Light Beige is really light. Following the ad it should be very covering and do not rub off on the masks.  Both I can not really confirm.  So for me personally a bad buy.


A lot of advertising is being done on Instagram right now.  Films with a before-and-after effect are shown that make you think, WOW.  If that works, hello new face. Even wrinkled faces become super smooth after application, tattoos become invisible and even the underwater test seems to have been passed.  So I ordered it for little money through Amazon.  No WOW effect for me, not even the opacity that the videos promise.  A lot of hype for nothing, so my judgment.

Shiseido Perfect Hydrating BB Cream SF 30 (Medium Naturel)

BB Creams have been popular for years because they promise care and a little bit of the make-up effect in one.  There was one from MÄC some time ago that I actually found super great, but as it is often in the cosmetics industry: if you have got used to a product and want to buy it again, it says: “There is no more”. Simply taken out of the program and nobody knows why. So that’s how I came to Shiseido. If I had to assign grades, it would be a 2-  3. So it’s ok. Wears on well and is definitely enough for the home office.

Babor Age ID Serum Foundation

As the name suggests, the foundation is enriched with a serum. It is easy to apply and creates a nice, even finish Skin texture. I like to use it as a base and usually at least add Angel’s Magic Powder by Brigitta B. Behrends over it. For the perfect finish, I then powder the entire face with a compact powder. This makes small redness and blemishes disappear

Angel’s Perfect  Make-up by Brigitta B. Behrends

The name says it all, because this make-up is really perfect: it can be easily applied with all tools (sponges, brushes, etc.) and covers all the make-up I use  ever tried the very best.  It is important that you apply it correctly and spread it out well.  Brigitta B. Behrends has numerous tutorials on her homepage that show perfectly how it works.  I always use it for photo shoots or when I’m planning something because it simply makes the skin look the best.  In any case, you should layer a powder that combines wonderfully with the make-up and creates great skin.

Angels Magic Powder

Now that’s not make-up.  I have to emphasize it in the context of this article, because it is really magic.  Why?  Because this powder is more versatile than any other facial product.  Applied solo, it makes a great glow, which I love in summer or at the beach.  You can give it to your day care and make your own BB cream.  It’s also great as an extra over make-up, because of the ingenious glow.  Here, too, it is worth taking a look at Brigitta B. Behrends’ tutorials.
