I recently had a chat with Birchbox UK for a feature on their blog discussing the products I use 'Morning, Noon & Night' I thought it was fun and I loved breaking down the products I used throughout my day. I thought some of you might like this so I decided to share it here with you all. 

Morning

I love to start my mornings with a strong cup of black coffee, I usually spend about 10 minutes with my notebook, jotting things down and writing my daily to-do-list. No two days are the same for me so my routine usually depends on what's going on that day. My morning skin care usually consists of Cetaphil's Facial Cleanser  which is a light, refreshing, face wash that instantly wakes up my skin. When it comes to skin care I adore French brands my current serum is  Caudalie's Polyphenol C15 it's strong in anti-oxidants which really protects your skin against free radicals. Eye cream is a necessity and I'm loving Caudalie's Premier Cru. My current face cream is Chantecaille's Flower Harmanozing Cream - This is such a luxurious product which hydrates my skin so beautifully

My make up varies on a daily basis depending what I have planned. My typical Spring make up routine consists of MAC's Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Primer I find it holds my make up throughout the day and gives my skin a gorgeous, dewy finish. I like my foundation light but with the option to build on coverage - my favourite at the moment is  NARS Sheer Glow  as it's very skin like. To conceal my dark circles I opt for MAC's Highlighter Pen in Bright Forecast it adds instant light and detracts from darkness. I love peach cheeks for Spring and one of my go-to's is Tarte's Fearless it works so well with my skin tone and adds a natural flush of colour. Highlighting is an absolute MUST for me and my Holy Grail has to be Kevyn Aucoin's Celestial Powder it adds such a gorgeous GLOW. My eye make up is usually warm, neutral toned and I have been loving the Smashbox Full Exposure Palette it's a great mix of matte and shimmer shadows. My eyeliner of the moment is L'Oreal's Super Liner Super Slim it's great to perfect that feline flick. Lips is something that changes again on a daily basis but for brights I adore Tom Ford's Wild Ginger and my nude pick has to be MAC's Modesty

Noon

During the day I rarely touch up or re apply make up, I sometimes carry around a powder or blotting sheets to eliminate any oiliness on my skin. I also like to carry around a facial mist, these are great at adding hydration and refreshing the skin with or without make up I'm loving the 'this works' one at the moment. Hand cream is another handbag/desk essential I'm loving Laura Mercier's AmbreVanille it smells yummy! I also love to keep By Terry's Baume de Rose with me it feels so fabulous on the lips!

Night

The evenings are my favourite time to unwind and really enjoy my products. I love wearing make up but there's nothing more satisfying than taking it off. I cleanse on a daily basis with Emma Hardie's Moringa Balm which I've been using for years, it does it all - cleanses, tones & moisturises! I sometimes like to exfoliate in the evenings, I usually pick Kate Somervilles Exfolikate. I find it hard to sleep at night so after my evening shower/bath which usually consists of Aromatherapy Associates Bath/shower oils I apply This Works Deep Sleep Night Oil to my body and spritz Rituals Linen Spray over my sheets. Just before bed I reapply my serum and smother my skin in Tarte's Pure Maracuja Oil it's absolutely gorgeous, you wake up with hydrated, radiant skin. I also pop on a little bit of Nuxe's Reve de Miel Lip Balm which is extremely nourishing! 

Then it's lights out and night night




Lots of Love
