I recently had a chat withBirchbox 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.
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 Cleanserwhich 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 C15it'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 isChantecaille'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 PrimerI 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 Glowas 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 Fearlessit 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 beKevyn 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 Paletteit's a great mix of matte and shimmer shadows. My eyeliner of the moment isL'Oreal's Super Liner Super Slimit'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 beMAC's Modesty.
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!
