I love makeup, it has been part of my life since my early teens. I have always worn it, it is part of my morning routine and the only time I leave the house without it is when I’m going to the gym, and even then I usually pop on some mascara, it just opens my eyes and makes me feel better. I always try and make an effort when makeup and hair is concerned, but I do still stick to my old routines, I’m not someone who spends hours contouring with different palettes, I’m pretty old school. I like a good foundation, a good under eye brightener, a good bronzer/blusher, lipstick and mascara they are my every day tools.

Would you be shocked if I told you I do my own hair? I must have been to loads of hairdressers and asked for my hair to be done a certain way and I have yet to walk out of somewhere and be totally happy with the results. This is the colour I’m talking about not the cut, I always have my hair cut professionally, but I do the colour myself and I have always used L’Oréal Hair colorants. I really need to look after my hair with it being blonde so I do use a good shampoo and conditioner and a treatment every week (when I remember) Its definitely worth spending a little bit more money on good products and seeing results.

I have listed below all the products I use on a daily basis, including the hair treatment.

  1. What greatly choices – all reliable and trustworthy cosmetics which do what they say on the tin. I cut and colour my own hair – I can’t stand letting anyone else do it! Great post xxx
