I don’t really do make up. A quick eyelash curl and flash of mascara usually has to suffice. I don’t own concealer or bronzer or eyeshadow or blusher. I have a tinted moisturiser and if it’s a very special occasion I’ll wear foundation. Although it must be at least four years old so it may very well be separated and unusable by now. I own one lipstick which I’ve used maybe twice. I’ve been suffering from lipstick envy watching that contestant on The Great British Bake Off who wears a different shade of really vibrant lippy every episode.
I fear what was considered to be Youthful and Fresh Faced in my 20’s will be regarded as Scares The Children in my 40’s. Perhaps it already has?! I’ve come to accept that I’m going to have to start Making An Effort. My make up bag needs an overhaul.
I’m a big believer in that you get what you pay for when it comes to skincare and make up so I won’t be running out tomorrow to buy the entire Rimmel counter. Plus I like to deliberate and take my time selecting the right things. I know those Beauty Box subscription things are all the rage at the moment but I want to choose. I don’t need a cupboard full of beauty buys that we all know I’ll never use.
Anyway, the journey starts here. All beauty recommendations welcome. If you use a particular product that rocks your world then please feel free leave a comment or tweet me! x
