Whether it was her doing my hair, make-up or just lecturing me on the need to look after my skin, having a big sister has rubbed off on me in a big way. The fact that she’s a make-up artist and beauty therapist might have had something to do with it too. Nowadays I really enjoy looking after my skin and second to fashion beauty comes close. Although I use quite a few products, if I were to whittle them down for you, these would be my essentials.
From left to right:
1. ‘Exoctic Ember’ Mineralized Blush – MAC; Blush heaven! It’s a shame that this colour is part of a limited edition range. I’ll be stocking up on these before they are taken off them market though.
2. Lash Extensions – Jica; Lash fibres in a bottle – a genius invention. Apply the fibres in between coats of mascara and, voila, you have the most natural looking voluminous lashes ever.
4. Deep Comfort Body Butter – Clinique; A luxurious body cream that will transform your skin in to velvet.
5. Precleanse – Dermalogica; Taking your makeup off properly is by far the best way to look after your skin. I’ve tried various makeup removers, Clinique, MAC, baby wipes even (come on, we’ve all been there), but none are half as good as Dermalogica’s Precleanse. It will literally melt the stubbornness of any make up off.
