A lot of you have been asking about my skin care and make up…. So here you go, ask and you shall receive!
I always take my make up off with an oil cleanser. My absolute favorite is by Shu Uemura. It’s probably my favorite skin care product ever! It removes everything and keeps my skin soft. I then wash my face with a gel facial wash. Recently I’ve been using Dermalogica’s ‘special cleansing gel’. It cleans my face without stinging my eyes or drying my skin.
I travel for work quite a lot so I always stock up on Shishido moisturizer at the airport. I only wear a day cream that has SPF15 or higher and I do this everyday. In the evenings I use No 7’s ‘Protect & Perfect’ night cream. It’s incredibly rich but I have no problem going to bed with an oily face!
I’m not a fan of heavy foundations. I think they age you and look cheap…. For day time I love MAC ‘face and body’. It has a lovely texture and the bottle is HUGE. If I feel like I need a bit more coverage for an evening out then I use NARS Sheer Glow. This is very creamy but still light enough that your skin can breath.
I love a thick line with a flick and I always use MAC fluid line in Black Track. I like full lashes so usually go for ‘volume’ mascaras. At the moment I’m using ‘The Colossal’ by Maybelline.
Day to day I use MAC cream blush in ‘Posey’ and then in the evening I use a NARS bronzer/blusher duo: ‘Laguna’ and ‘Orgasm’. ‘Orgasm’ is one of NARS’s best sellers and I can see why. It has really good pigment with beautiful flecks of gold that blend well and it doesn’t streak or go patchy.
I did a full post on lips here but these two have been my ‘go to’s’ for a while. MAC ‘way to love’ is a great nude. It goes on really silky and doesn’t dry your lips at all. ‘True Coral’ from Tom Ford is a gorgeous pink coral. It quite bright and is kind of a retro shade.
