As promised, here are the products I have used on today’s ‘instastory’…
After applying my SPF (I use Elta MD, which I get from Medicetics) and moisturiser (I used Kiehls today) I used ‘This Works In Transit Camera Close-up (£30) to prime my skin. However, I am trying to use up products at the moment, and if I was going to recommend a primer I would say Charlotte Tilbury’s Wonder Glow (£38.50) is my favourite.
The foundation I am using at the moment is Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation (Beige 3) (£42) I really like the foundation but I am not too keen on the dropper, as I find that I can never suck up the right amount. It’s either too little or too much, but the coverage is really good and it stays put. I change my foundation fairly often, as I like to try new products, but a firm favourite has always been Chanel Vitalumiere. (£37)
I am using Laura Mercier Secret Concealer for Under Eye (£21) circles and blemishes. It’s really good. It doesn’t cake, it’s moisturising and blends in beautifully whilst offering really good coverage.
I use Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze and Glow (£49) to contour my cheeks and outline the face.
Today’s blusher ( I have several I love) was Claudia Schiffer’s Blusher in shade ‘Sunrise’. It looks really pink but it’s much more subtle on.
After trying several brow definers I have fallen for this one from Hourglass. (£29) I wear shade blonde. Brush the brows up and over and fill in.
I use a different eyeshadow almost every day depending on my mood. Today’s choice was Charlotte Tilbury’s Eyes to Mesmerise in Mona Lisa. (£22) Really easy to apply (with your finger) and stays put.
Again, I am always trying new mascaras and don’t have one that I absolutely swear by, but have just started using Max Factor’s 2000 Calorie Curl Addict which came recommended by my friend Fran (the Fashion Lift) and I really like it. No smudging, good lift and doesn’t irritate my eyes. (Plus it’s really inexpensive at £7.99)
Today I used one of my favourite little pots called GLOW from Topshop. (£10) However the highlighter in the Charlotte Tilbury duo is very good too.
Earrings were from Missoma London

I am sorry this was a slightly rushed post, my mummy duties got in the way but I really wanted to get the products up for you as soon as possible.
