“I learned to do the right make-up over the years. Since my skin tone is warm, I also use warm tones in my make-up.”

What is your care ritual that makes you feel most competent?

I have a skin care routine that I apply to my skin every morning and evening. For 5-6 years, I have been trying to do it without skipping a day. The products I use in the morning and evening are almost the same. First of all, I clean my skin with a facial cleansing foam and apply a tonic. In the morning, I apply a day serum and moisturizer, and in the evening, I apply a night serum and a heavier moisturizer to complete my routine.

What colors and works do you use most in your make-up?

Over the years, I think I’ve learned how to do make-up without mistakes. The products and tones I have used for years are exactly the same. I don’t go on many adventures when it comes to makeup. Since my skin tone is warm, I prefer warm products. Brown eyeliner and eyeshadow, plum mascara and peach blush are about.

What should be considered when choosing a color in make-up? What colors would you recommend for skin and hair color?

There are some facts about this subject that are not known much but are very important. In fact, we need to make up according to our skin color rather than our skin and hair color. Take, for example, two blonde-blue-eyed women. Cool eye shadows containing magenta and fuchsia lipsticks suit someone, while for someone else these tones may look very pale, making that person look older and tired than they are. In short, colors that are suitable for the skin color and that will not create contrast with the colors such as hair, eyes, eyebrows and eyelashes, on the contrary, should be preferred.

What boosts your energy and what makes you feel more competent?

One of the best things for me is to start the day early. Quickly after waking up, I am ready to go in front of the mirror and do my skin care routine, then work out and get ready for the day. Dreaming also makes me feel perfect.

What are the products that you say are always in my bag, everywhere at any time?

Hand cream, lip balm and sunscreen. This trio is always in my bag.

Which scents do you like most in perfume?

Whatever scents I like to smell in nature are the same with this perfume. I love fruit and flower scents. I also have another passion for citrus and coconut.
