This week’s Friday fives are my last five beauty purchases. I haven’t written many beauty posts and the reason’s simple- I am pretty clueless when it comes to make-up and ridiculously unadventurous in trying new trends. Ummm I’ve only just got my head around BB creams and the beauty/fash packs according to the glossies have moved on to CC creams? I might have heard of CC creams but do I know what they really are or which is the best? Nope- not a clueeeeee. Well seeing as it’s a new year I am going to try to master some eye shadow colours that aren’t gold or bronze and to whack on a bright lippy now and then. (I made a start- look below!)
Burt’s Bees lip balm. It’s full on ugghhh winter in London and I alternate between Burt’s and Carmex.
M.A.C Ruby Woo- it is true this shade really does suit every skin colour (check out the video I made with make-up artist Dipali Damji on how to apply bright lippy here)
Shahnaz Husain Shamoist Plus Intensive Moisturising- I recently tried out a sample of this product and found it really soothing on my dull winter skin so have just ordered it online.
M.A.C Hanging Loose Dirty Pink Nude. I thought I’d get on the S/s 13 nude nails bandwagon. I like this easy shade from M.A.C’s Apres- Chic collection.
Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner. I’ve been using this eyeliner for years. The long nib makes it super easy to use and perfect for adding a retro flick and unlike some other brands the colour stays a true black on dark skin too.
