Beauty products aren’t something that I normally write about but it’s a huge love of mine. I adore the feminine lick it gives me on days when I’m not feeling my allure.
As a former dancer, I experimented greatly with brands, techniques etc and enjoyed creating the alternative persona it can lend you when required.
So, here I wanted to share with you my ‘Go to’ products for an over 40’s woman who doesn’t spend a fortune.
Firstly, always get the prep work done properly to ensure I get a healthy glow with even coverage. Currently I use this L’oreal day moisturiser which i’m loving https://www.boots.com/loreal-revitalift-laser-renew-day-cream-50ml-10139960 . I am prone to changing and trying new brands sporadically but I’m liking this and I’m liking it’s price.
Following your favourite primer ( i’m using the Arbonne primer right now which is great )
So, now i’m in my late 40’s, I was looking for a foundation that was medium coverage but would give me a bit of a boost. This my friends is bloody amazing; https://www.clarins.co.uk/everlasting-youth-fluid/80053005.html I use this for a day look or night out. Not only does it apply really well but a little goes a very long way. It gives you enough coverage to allow a even looking, radiant complexion without looking fake and feeling mask like.
My next love is probably not the best bronzer on the market. It is perfect though when dusted all over the face for a bit of a sunkissed, natural vibe. Once i’ve dusted all over I apply a little extra to the top of my forehead and top of cheekbones for a sunkissed hit. https://www.benefitcosmetics.com/en-gb/product/hoola-matte-bronzer?product=HOOLAIB74-FULL&sku=FM318&gclid=Cj0KCQiAkMGcBhCSARIsAIW6d0BCDfRGyACTb6AQFJDTHgM58CUr6xIEG3P6EH_hsEoS9T_nNvhncIwaAr5oEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds
Finally, that all important lick of mascara. I am a total mascara addict and have been using this brand for sometime now. Not only is it a great price but it gives you thick, extra long lashes instantly. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Maybelline-Mascara-Sensational-Black-9-5ml/dp/B00PFCSXD4/ref=asc_df_B00PFCSXD4/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=310817340924&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=13213103632517249342&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1006717&hvtargid=pla-432379551540&psc=1
