Okay, I admit it – I am disgustingly nosy. I love having a virtual (and sometimes real life, as my friends will confirm) rummage through other people’s bags, wardrobes and kitchen drawers. I think it’s fascinating to discover the things people treasure.
I get asked about my makeup quite often (weirdly, as I never, ever mention it and rarely take close ups of my face!) so when Paula from Pink Bow gave us a peek at her makeup, I thought I’d do the same.
I keep all my makeup in this white leather vanity case from Clinique. It’s huge with lots of pockets, making it perfect for carting a large collection around.
I use Benefit’s Bad Gal kohl pencil to create smoky eyes. Touche Eclat is a makeup must-have that I’ve been using since I was 15. The Clinique mascara is new – I took an old mascara to the Clinique counter in Debenhams and they swapped it for this one, for free!
Estee Lauder Double Wear has always been my favourite foundation. Nothing sticks to skin like it! I use Benefit’s Erase Paste to brighten under my eyes. Lots of people ask about my blusher (I must wear a lot) – it’s Topshop’s cream blusher in Flush.
My signature scent is J’adore Dior, but Marc Jacobs’ Daisy comes a close second. The hand cream is from L’Occitane and smells divine.
