Sunday Social (86)

Linking up with Ashley and Neely again.

1. How old were you when you started wearing makeup?
Sometime when in my early teens. I remember having a lovely set of cards showing how to apply make up for various styles. Blue mascara and pink blush figured heavily, forgive me - it was the late eighties.

2. What are your top 3 favourite beauty products?
Top three:- 

Touche Eclat is magic - it doesn't need to be matched to your skin tone; and it hides dark circles and blemishes. Very expensive but worth every penny, last ages. I discovered it when I was about 23 and fifteen years later I think this is my fifth or sixth tube.

My hair is unruly, and always has been. The only way to tame it is to use the Frizz-Ease that you put in your hair damp and then tie it back. The other bottle is for once your hair is dry and spritzes on. Both work magically.

This is my favourite blusher. It smells like make-up smelt when I was a kid and the brush is the perfect shape and fits inside the pot. It's an all in one solution.

3. What is the one makeup product you don't leave home without?
I don't wear make-up very much, so I don't really have an answer. If I am wearing make-up it is the lipstick I've got on.

4.What is your daily beauty routine?
Cleanse, tone and moisturise in the evenings. In the mornings the thing that takes the most time is my hair (it really is too long now), I use an all in one cleansing wipe in the mornings, put on eye treatments and lip treatments and that is about it. 

5. What is your favourite hair/makeup product you've discovered in the last year?
Another Bourjois offering - Rose Exclusif. Amazing lip gloss. You put it on and it adjusts to the PH value of your lips. This is true as my friend and her daughter tested it out. It is gorgeous to wear - not sticky at all it has vitamins added and lasts a good while.
