and used the contents to paint her face again!! She is 3 but i wish she would leave my bloody stuff alone. Also sprayed half a body of DKNY perfume which i love and cant afford to replace grrrr. Whats left now sits on a high shelf.

However atleast one of my lipsticks she trashed were from the body shop and that must have been 18 years old!! Most of my make up is impulse purchases from superdrug and a few lovely bits bought as presents (urban decay eye shadow palette sob sob).

Its my birthday in a few months so i would like to go and have a make up consultation with the aim of replacing most bits. In fairness my make up stuff is patchy at best and currently barely used. My beloved bare minerals is almost used up and i am not convinced my no7 foundation is actually the right shade. Now i am slowly getting out of my baby bubble and losing weight i am starting to feel like me again and would like to make the time for make up as i like the way i look with it on. My family are lovely and would buy me bits for my birthday so i thought a consultation might be a good bet.

I live near a big - ish city with debenhams, house of fraser, john lewis, boots etc. Does anyone have any recomendations of where to go?

If it helps i am blonde, very fair (with blotchy red patches) and totally clueless - having babies seemed to robbed me of my sense of style!!

Sorting my hair is the interim mission followed by clothes when i get to my goal weight. This is my year!

Go and have a consultation with Bobbi Brown . Book the appointment .John Lewis will probably have the range. I am sure this will help you find products that are perfect for you. Then hide them from inquisitive Dd!
