Since I was a little girl, I was experimenting with pots and potions, first from my mums dressing table and later as a woman and makeup artist.
Now I have firm favorites that are either on my dressing table or in my makeup box.
1.Estee Lauder Perfectionist - a correcting serum for lines/wrinkles/age/spots. Brilliant!
Put on your skin straight after cleansing while your skin is more receptive to absorbing the product. You can then apply your foundation which will go on more smoothly and evenly.
2.Chantacaille Future Skin - light gel like foundation, evens out skin tone without creating a flat, mask like look. Doesnít need powdering either so you keep the integrity of your skins translucency and glow. Love it!
3.Giorgio Armani Blender Brush - the best brush I have found on the market for applying your foundation, for light and even coverage. Better than fingers!
4.Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream - Great for prepping your lips before anything else. Will soften chapped and dry lips instantly giving a gentle plumpness. Would never not have it in my makeup box models expect it as the norm!
5.Barry M Lip and Eye Crayon - beautiful shimmering crayon for highlighting, inner corners of the eye, eyelid, cheek bone and cupids bow of the mouth. Great for getting a fresh youthful look!
6.Max Factor Masterpiece Mascara - from the first time this mascara was launched it has become a regular staple on my dressing table and my makeup box! Try it for yourself!
7.Bobby Brown Eye Brightener - lightweight formula for blending away darkness around your eye area. Becoming a bit of a cult product!
8.Mac Blush Creme - apply creme blush with your fingers to the apples of your cheeks and blend up and away to your cheek bones. Easy to blend, great colour choices and isnít greasy or shiny looking. Gives a beautiful, natural glow. Dab a bit on your lips too for a natural makeup look!
9.Mac or Bobby Brown Gel Eyeliner. It comes in a little pot so you have to apply with a brush. I recommend a Macís Small Angled Brush, which is flat shaped with an angled tip. Even a monkey can have wicked eyeline with this one!
10.Estee Lauder Re - Nutriv Ultimate Lifting Eye Cream. This lovely eye cream is non greasy but still makes the skin around your eyes feel supple and firm. Iím a big fan of eye cream because after 20 years of daily use, I can see it works!
