I actually had my dream job for many years, I started out as a Beauty Consultant for YSL Beaute, got to love their Touche Eclat, then I got promoted to Account Manager, moving onto Chanel then I did promotions for many different companies, yes I was one of those annoying ladies who try and get you to try a new perfume when your're walking through the store minding your own business !!!!
These are my face and body must-haves.
As I've got older I do prefer the more natural products for my skin, I love the fragrance of the natural plant extracts and I just feel it is doing my skin good more than the chemical based products with all the preservatives. I've been using Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish for years, it's amazing, the smell and feel of it on your skin is gorgeous and it takes off eye make-up too, you are left with clean, soft skin with no tightening, a great natural skincare range, they've just started a make up range too so want to try that soon. I can't be without Decleor Neroli Aromessence, suits all skin types and I never go outside in the summer without Clarins UV Plus SPF40.
L'Occitane shower gels are a firm favourite of mine, the fragrances are just gorgeous, another L'Occitane must-have is the hand-cream.My latest find are Neom products, all natural and they smell devine, I'm using the Refresh Body Oil at the moment and I've got the Tranquilty candle that I burn just before bedtime, bliss !!!
I use to be very adventurous with my make-up, following trends in all the glossy mags, when I was a teen I wouldn't be seen without my Rimmel Heather Shimmer lipstick but now I'm getting on a bit, lol, I stick to a few favourites.
My make-up looks really boring with all that black but I love Chanel and Bobbi Brown and both of their packaging is black !!!! My desert island product would be Bare Minerals Medium Beige Foundation. I use it everyday even if I'm not going out, the minerals are good for your skin and it has a natural SPF. When I want a bit more coverage I use YSL Perfect Touch Radiance foundation, it gives a lovely sheen to the skin.
My favoured bronzer is Chanel silky bronzer in Toundra, it lasts for ages but I'm going to give the Nars a try that Nicki recommends, next time I have to buy some, I love my eyeliner and have every colour of the Chanel waterproof eyeliner. I'm using Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick on my cheeks, it's multi-purpose and can be used as an eyeshadow another one I use is Benefit Coralista but I'm on the hunt for a good cream blusher that lasts so if anybody can recommend one I'd appreciate it.
I don't own a lipstick but love my lip glosses and will try any brand if I like the colour, I've heard a lot recently about Superdrug MUA lip gloss, at just £2 I think it's worth a try, has anybody tried it yet ?
This was a real girly post so thanks for sticking with it, I would love to know what your favourite products are. Have a great weekend, let's hope the sun starts shining again for Jubilee weekend.
