Many of my followers have often asked me about my beauty regimen and how I manage to keep what they refer to as my “youthful looks”.
I am a firm believer in the saying that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. What some might consider beautiful to others might just be plain and ordinary. But I believe that in my case, being blessed with a massive dollop of good genes and a mother who instilled in me from the age of 12 how important facial care is has been my secret. My mother handed me my
first bottle of Oil of Olay at the age of 14 – and I haven’t looked at another facial moisturiser since.
Since I discovered make up as a teenager,
, as fabulous as they all are, have I found as perfect for my skin as MAC Cosmetics products
I am a religious believer in the new make up miracle primer – Milk of Magnesium. It was introduced to me by one of my make up artist friends. Strange, I know – but it works. Seeing the magical effect after it was first used on my face, I got home and bought the biggest bottle. Now, I do not wear make up without it. It keeps your make up looking fresh all day and eliminates shine. Used under your foundation, it acts as a base that provides a matte, smooth, lightened, glowy effect and gives the professional appearance when used properly.
I prefer to use a darker shade of foundation and then set with a lighter powder shade. This prevents the pale look that you get from some pictures due to the effects of camera flashes
|I don’t particularly like a lot of colours on my face so I go for either the smoky eyes look or just go for shades of brown. I choose a darker blusher shade but I quite like loud lip colours such as reds or dark pink.|
