Skin Love

I have to come clean - I am a skincare and makeup fanatic. Having had bad acne when I was a teenager, I am adamant about looking after my skin. I went through two courses of Accutane, and let me tell you, that makes a person never want to experience nasty skin-peeling, vicious lip chapping, redness and sensitivity again. SO!
I change products regularly, not so much because I give up on the ones I use, but because there are so many awesome new products and research coming out. What I have discovered and am LOVING at the moment includes...
NVEY Organic erase concealer
ECO Minerals blush
  • NVEY Organic concealer brush (perfect size and softness for around the eyes and nose) & erase concealer in neutral.
  • ECO Minerals mineral blush in Uluru - not JUST for the name! Beautiful shade that mimics a healthy glow (cheaper than a holiday in Thailand!)
  • Estee Lauder lip tint in Amber Bronze (611) - apply one coat for the slightest berry sheen and three for a stronger colour
    Estee Lauder lip tint
  • Garnier BB Cream in light shade. This is amazing and so cheap - moisturises, heals blemishes, prevents new spots and covers redness...plus you can throw it in the basket while you're doing the groceries. Bonus.
