“Morning: I start my day by cleansing my face with Bioderma Crealine. In the shower, I wash my hair with Davines products. My favorites are Momo Shampoo and Conditioner, their products smell beautiful and have amazing quality, you can feel their products are revitalizing your hair.

On my body I use an organic rose soap that I found in Marrakech, it’s a transparent fluorescent pink. Then I use Meros Hair Foundation Jell. It is made in Japan and not easy to find but also usually lasts a while. It’s like a thick laminate that I rub through my hair when it’s between wet and dry. It helps to smooth hair, protects the surface and gives it shine. I also use Bluebell Body Crème by Jo Malone on my body and face. The smell and texture is beautiful. It is both light and also heavy enough to feel very moisturizing.

Day: I feel incomplete if I go a day without Prism Blush by M.A.C. and Silver Mountain Water scent by Creed. I always carry lipstick with me, and rotate between a matte pink called Snob by M.A.C., or a peachy color by Illamasqua called Obey. If I’m feeling more like red I go for Heatwave by NARS. My other recent favorite color is from my make-up collaboration with MAKE called Fire which is a bright reddish-orange.

Night: At night I usually go for eyes rather than lips. I use Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux and Lancome liquid eyeliner in black, or I will go for for an interesting color blue for eyeliner by NARS. I use eye makeup remover by Lancôme Bi-Facil and also wash my face in the evening with Bioderma. Afterwards, I’ll spray Rose Water by Santa Maria Novella on my face and also on my bed linens.”

    Merci Garance! Ce serait super si tu pouvais faire une interview carrière de Maryam Nassir Zadeh! J’adore ses sélection pour la boutique et j’adorerais en savoir plus sur son activité à la fois de gérante, de styliste et de showroom. Voilà. En tout cas je perds rien à demander. Peut-être mon voeux sera-t-il exhaucé :)

    I’m loving that pink lipstick color on her. I think my coloring might be a little too pink already to pull it off, but I’m going to go hunting. ;)

    What is Rose water for? Is it just for scent, or it has beauty purposes as well?

    Thank goodness, a woman who enjoys makeup and knows the names of her products! Not like the usual, “During the day I wear moisturizer and I use a little, I don’t know,mascara and maybe a touch of Vaseline on my lips if I’m feeling daring.” LOL!

    C’est vrai que la Créaline de Bioderma a un super effet le matin ! Je confirme !

    Maryam’s routine est vraiment magnifique! Moi aussi j’adore le MAC Prism blush!

    Franchement je n’en peux plus de cette Crealine. J’ai voulu l’essayer vu ce qu’on pouvait en lire. Elle laisse un film très désagréable sur la peau et franchement pour se démaquiller uniquement avec ça il faut au moins 27 cotons! pour moi rien de tel qu’un bon massage avec un lait ou une créme bien onctueuse + un pschitt d’eau thermale débarasser le tout avec un coton et recommencer une fois et terminer par un bon tonique qui fait la peau douce et rose. A propos de douceur, cette fille a les traits très doux et ses yeux sont vraiement beau.

    everyone keeps raving about bioderma- i think i should finally cave and buy a bottle of this miracle worker!

    I love these beauty minutes but could you feature some older beauties as well? Most if these women would look good if they washed thier face with paint. I’d love to learn what some older beauties do to maintain as sadly I’ve reached the age without the beauty. :)

    J’aime vraiment les moments beauté. Moi, ma routine est plutôt simple: nettoyant Cetaphil matin et soir. J’utilise pour le moment la crème hydrante pour le corps Up&Up une marque de Target (je ne suis pas difficile pour les hydrants pour le corps c’est simple l’automne/hiver il faut qu’il soit épais et printemps/été léger et surtout mais surtout sans odeur), mon hydratant pour le visage j’utilise Cetaphil pour le jour. Je me démaquille à l’occasion a/ l’eau micellaire de Bioderma (quand j’y pense lol, je devrais y penser plus souvent). La nuit vu que j’ai une peau à tendance acnéique j’utilise ma crème prescrit par ma dermato. Cette crème garde ma peau très stable et presque parfaite. J’ai un ou deux boutons par là, rien d’arlamant. Je l’aime tellement et surtout elle me coûte 0$ (merci les assurances et le fait que je sois étudiante ahah!). Je peux la renouveler jusqu’à septembre. Inutile de dire que je vais courrir chez ma dermato pour reprendre une nouvelle prescription. Dans la vie de tous les jours je mets le fond de teint Matchmaster de chez MAC et je fais mes sourcils avec la pommade de Anastasia Beverly Hills. Si je sors je mets eyeliner, mascara et lipgloss. :)

    It is interesting to see there is not any SPF, serums or anti aging products in the regimen. We share many beauty favs. MAC snob has been a go to mixing shade for me for years. Being matte, it can serve as a base for neutral peach and tan nude lipsticks and glosses. This hue of pink brings life to those “dead-ish” nudes without removing them from the nude family.
