On this page I will introduce you to the basic contents of your make-up bag.

My personal favourite brand is Yes Saint Laurent, It delivers, instant and a flawless finish with classy colours that stand out.

You will be surprised at just how little you need to purchase initially.  But I promise that you will be delighted with the impact and WOW factor!

Foundation  – the Base on which all the remaining products are applied.  The secret with any foundation is to get the right colour match (I will be demonstrating) and not to be afraid of going a little darker if you don’t want to look too washed out but again if you are fair skinned you will need to get it right – It’s easy when I show you how.

I use Touche éclat Foundation, it gives me a flawless cover and lasts all day, I have complete confidence in its delivery and again I find it light enough to blend in.

Bronzer – I will give you tips on how to contour and blend in!! I do tend to use YSL – it has a matt finish and really does look flawless.

Blusher – I would recommend a cream blusher, it is soooo much kinder than a powder for us beautiful ladies and creates a rather nice glow.

Concealer – I only use touché éclat when I go out, need to make an impression or had one of my sleepless nights!! Great for under the eye or to hide any blemishes (as if we have any of those hey) I will be covering these in more detail.

Eye Liner – oh they sound scary things to use but trust me, they can make such a difference in defining the eye and making them pop!  I will be demonstrating on how to use them all from Liquid, pencil and stylus, so many to choose from BUT I’m here to make the choice for you with a no fuss guide.

Eye Shadow – to be honest just two colours for every day wear is all you need and something with extra glamour for occasion or to add another colour change for a simple night out – LESS IS MORE!  All will be revealed during my blogs and demonstrations.

My absolute favourite – Mascara – It goes without saying that I LOVE my YSL False lash mascara in Noir radical The look is just FAB, you really need to try to believe , just cannot get enough of it.

Lipstick – I buy two, or may be three, lipsticks a year, OK I do you use the same colour but every day!

The one make up item I really could not live without  is MY RED LIPSTICK – YSL NO. 13 FOR MANY YEARS – MY SIGNATURE!  I’m ready to take on anything when I have my “Lippy On”,  BUT to reiterate I will be covering other shades and makes.

AN INSTANT GLAMOUR TIP – you could get away with wearing one coat of Mascara and an application of lipstick to pop out to the shops, although clothes are highly recommended too 😉
