Scrub That Face.
It’s pointless putting amazing products on a layer of dead skin and expecting amazing results. Get that dead skin off with your chosen face cleanser and this facial cleansing brush.
Nothing hydrates my skin like Clinique Moisture Surge™ 100H Auto-Replenishing Hydrator 15ml.
This is new. I absolutely love this range, I have the 72H version which is amazing. Every single time I use it I am shocked by the results I can’t wait to get my hands on the new 100H
This is definitely my new no.2 must-have.
I use Mac Cosmetics Prep + Prime Natural Radiance over my every day face cream to hydrate and refine skin, while adding a luminous glow.
My Favourite No.3
They is the holy grail. I kid you not this stuff is the dogs *****. I love what this product does both with and without make up.
This Strobe Cream by Mac Cosmetics is the one. I use ‘GoldLite’ option.
I can’t stress this enough, if I could only have one item in my face kit bag – it would be this one.
This is without a doubt my no.1 favourite.
Yes we want that nude, effortless glow but lets be realistic here, the chances are that a little bit of concealer maybe desired. I cover a few spot scars so it is just a few dabs of this easy to use

My Favourite no.4
Fix+ Magic Radiance
Hydrate, nourish, prime, shimmer and set all at once with this liquid gem. Keep that glow refreshed and popping with Fix+ Magic Radiance by Mac Cosmetics.
We’ve all got something to highlight, I use, (yes, you guessed it) Mac Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish in ‘Gold Deposit’ and yes I love its glide on, dazzling mix and shimmer. Plus it stays on and that’s super helpful. Lol.

As for the sparkle, there are not enough words to describe to the sparkle.
Emphase your glow and face features with this Bronzing Powder by Mac Cosmetics.

Post lockdown Summer is coming and we know what that means… sipping cocktails, chatting away and smiling at every opportunity.
You know what I mean, Prep, Prime and Pencil those lips people.
This lipstick base that adds light moisture, smoothes and refines. It holds colour so well.
