My top 5 beauty products

In this post, I will take you through my top 5 beauty products and why they’re important to me.

CLARINS BEAUTY FLASH BALM

It’s my ultimate pick me up for dehydrated or tired skin. It moisturises the skin and gives it a fresh boost.

KOSMEA ROSE HIP OIL

For rejuvenating my skin overnight or under my makeup on occasion. It smoothes the skin, nourishes and helps balance skin tone.

PRE CLEANSE By Dermalogica

I am a double cleanse kind of girl, but I want something quick fast & gentle. This melts off and removes all my make up in one go. I use the pre-cleanse as a makeup remover before a cleanser.

MAC FIX+ SPRAY

This is one of my fav’s, a spritz you can always find in my handbag. Keeps my makeup fresh and hydrated all day. Great for taking away that powdery look, spritz it once you’ve finished your makeup or even at the beginning or middle if you fancy. AND best of all it smells delicious.

LA MER LIP BALM

It’s expensive but totally worth it.. It looks like mint chocolate and tastes good too!! I can’t use waxy or vaseline like lip balms myself, so this is perfect for me with almost a matte-like finish. It strengthens the lips and helps protect them from damage.

Matte or dewy?

A question I often get asked as a makeup professional is whether a girl should use a matte or dewy foundation. To put simply, the answer is that both are great for different reasons – it depends on the ‘finish’ you want to achieve and it also depends on your skin type.

Matte finish foundation:

If you have super oily skin that tends to become shiny and ‘oily’ during the day, matte is great option for a longer wearing foundation that appears more velvety and matte on the skin all day long.

 

 

 

Dewy finish foundation:

Dewy skin is still high in trend at the moment reflection that athletic effortless looking skin. A dewy look can be fresh and luminous but for longevity a powder is recommend to have on handy, for the high ‘oily’ points on the face, follow the T-zone.
