    I’ve been waiting for a new video for so long 🙂
    Jules, please do a tutorial of what make-up you’re wearing in the video?
    Also, if you’ve used a lot of high-end make-up for the look, could you give some “cheaper” alternatives as well?

    Can’t wait for the next video!

    Would you recommend using the Vichy serum in the morning? (I use ANR at night)

    Also, please can you give some advice on keeping the sensitive décolletage area moisturised? I really struggle with sensitive skin here and it blemishes so easily.

    • Jules (author)

      I would use it in the morning yes, although you don’t necessarily need both because ANR also contains hyaluronic acid – only if you’re badly dehydrated (like me!). I also have sensitive skin on my chest so I just use my face moisturiser there, or the Skin Creamery Everyday Cream.

      A vitamin c serum/product protects againt pigmentation. It should have a minimum concentration of ten percent

    Camilla, which foundation/illuminator and blush are you wearing? Your skin is looking amazing!

    • Camilla

      Thanks so much Tam! That day I wore:
      Becca Backlight Priming Filter on my cheeks only;
      Foundation is a mix of Estee Lauder Double Wear Light + Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation;
      Blush is Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in ‘Mood Exposure’;
      Set my foundation using Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in ‘Dim Light’.

      We filmed at about 5pm, and that makeup had been on since 6:30am with no touch-ups!

    Live the vidoes. If you wouldn’t mind how old are the two of u?if u do not a problem. Looking forward to next post

      Hi Dionne – we are 33 and 34.

    Any idea how the Clarins Multi Active Yeux compares to dermalogica stress positive eye lift?

    • Camilla

      Hi Elizabeth. The Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift is designed to be used sporadically in times of stress (so, only use it when you feel you need it), and should only be used daily if you have chronic eye fatigue. If you have never used an eye cream before and are concerned about some fine lines etc, then I could recommend Clarins Multi Active Yeux. I have sensitive skin and Dermalogica products are often too harsh for me – I noticed that I was getting little red bumps on my skin when I used Stress Positive Eye Lift too often, whereas I had no reaction for the Clarins Multi Active Yeux. Without knowing your age, skin type etc, it is difficult for me to recommend one over the other, so I hope my experience has helped guide you a bit.
