Got a fab new funky haircut last Friday and proceeded to raid the make-up counter at Space NK to really cheer me up before winter really sets in for the next 11 and a half months
I now feel foxy and ravishing and rather smugly pleased with myself
As I am kind hearted I thought I'd share:
If you normally cannot do lipstick and are disappointed with lipgloss, this is what you need: Lipstick Queen in Saint Natural
Incredibly comfy, gorgeous colour, you don't know you're wearing it (I never wear lipstick usually!!)
For eyeshadow that lasts, get the Laura Mercier primer (can't find the link)
mmmm, not sure my skills extend to eye liner application....
Only problem with Space NK is that the lovely beautifully made-up lady gave dd a sample of foot massage gel and that she is now addicted to me massaging her feet.....
I know it's been done to death but I have to recommend LilyLoLo mineral make-up. I wouldn't bother with the blusher or the concealer (the blusher was no better than L'Oreal and the concealer lodged in my wrinkles), but the foundation, finishing powder and eye-shadow are great. I wore them for the first time a couple of weeks ago on a business trip. I was ill and felt as sick as a dog but my colleagues kept commenting how radiant I looked which was less than useful at the time but a recommendation for the make-up. You can buy extremely cheap tester pots to get the right foundation colour, but you do need a pricier £12 'Kobuki' (or some such name) brush to apply the powder.
NotanOtter, I'm 40 in 372 days! In fact, I've just told someone I don't have to decide where to go to lunch because I am a Libra and therefore exempt from decision-making. Now he's chosen Japanese, which I hate!
