“Hi! I’m Natalia Chavarín-Velazco. You may already know me from my posts on Into The Gloss: The Group. I was born and elevated in Mexico but just moved to Paris! It is tremendous thrilling. In this article, I support international pupils acclimate to this beautiful city by serving to them locate dwelling accommodations, assisting with paperwork, and immersing them into Parisian society. I very first came here as a university student, so it is quite interesting for me to be equipped to assist foreign college students that are in the exact place I was after in.
My environment are my most important natural beauty influences. When I was incredibly younger, my mother introduced my sister and I to self-care as a way to bond with us. My fondest recollections contain spa nights with them. My mom has normally been a quite hectic businesswoman, but she normally cherished creating time for us in that intimate way. She would give us massages, manicures and pedicures, and conclusion the evening with a experience mask. I would often appear ahead to all those evenings with each other. She instilled in us the worth of self-care, and it is some thing I am extremely grateful for.
My approach to splendor is extremely easy. I have dry, delicate pores and skin, so my main emphasis is to retain it hydrated. And at the time I find a product that my skin likes, I continue to be faithful. Having said that, the pharmacies in Paris are wonderful and due to the fact shifting listed here I really like going to them and acquiring tons of stuff. 1 of the most essential solutions that I use is Bioderma’s Micellar Water. I adore it due to the fact it cleans my pores and skin devoid of drying it. I also love that it is so uncomplicated to use, quite functional. One more solution that helps with extra hydration when the temperature is also cold is A-derma’s Fixing Cream. I started employing it immediately after an allergic response to a product and now I constantly keep it in my cabinet. It’s very thick and additional hydrating. And I normally have a small jar with Vaseline and sugar on hand to scrub my lips whenever they’re dry or require a minimal pick-me-up.
When it will come to make-up, I consider that less is more—I preserve items very simple and natural. I never really wear foundation, and rather, just use concealer wherever I will need it. I genuinely like Glossier’s Stretch Concealer simply because of its creamy and hydrating consistency. For blush, I like using Glossier’s Cloud Paint in Dusk—I like its brownish tone. Total, I practically by no means use brushes, so any make-up merchandise that is cream-based mostly and that I can implement with my fingers is a acquire for me.
I have really very long eyelashes, but they are straight, so curling my eyelashes is a really vital move for me—it opens my eyes. Right after they’re curled I use L’Oreal’s Telescopic Mascara—I adore how it tends to make my eyelashes appear quite lengthy and all-natural without clumping them. For lips I am loving Nars’ Dolce Vita and Cruella. Dolce Vita is a wonderful gentle and purely natural shade I like applying on the day-to-working day. My lips are rather pale, and this color gives them the color I want I had. I also love working with Cruella anytime I want a bold lip. What I like about these lipsticks is that even although they are matte, they are not drying. The formula is velvety on my lips.
I utilised to wash my hair just about every day and am just commencing the procedure to alter that because it was setting up to tumble out. It’s a gradual course of action, but I knowledgeable myself a whole lot on the topic and I consider I have it underneath management. Now I wash it twice or a few times a week with Klorane’s Shampooing à la Capucine for dandruff, and I actually massage my scalp to make confident it’s extremely clear and free of hair products. I even bought a scalp brush to actually go deep, and as a reward it’s like a wonderful therapeutic massage. On times I really do not clean it, I use Klorane’s Ultra Mild Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk for brown hair. It will work extremely nicely for my hair, and I like that it has a brownish hue, so it really is less difficult to blend. And two times in the winter I place olive oil on my scalp before mattress and wash it out in the early morning. It feels incredible and leaves your hair looking stunning. I realized it from my mother.”
