What is your current go to foundation for A/W 13?
I usually don’t wear foundation all that often – only when I’m going out with the girls. So for everyday I use my Garnier BB Cream in Light/Clear. But if I had to choose a foundation I would go for my Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation in Classic Beige. I still love the dewy look for the winter season.
What is your favourite Lip Balm for winter?
I love me some mentholatum. My favourite is just a £1 one, but its my little lippy gem! It’s my all time favourite for every season. I don’t know what it is about it, I just love the tinge ling and the cooling effect on the lips and if it happens that my lips gets cracked this is the perfect lip balm too. I love this paired with my LUSH Cosmetics Lipscrub in Julips – yummy!
If you had to choose to wear one lipstick shade all winter what would it be?
See, this is a hard one, India! Why do you do this to me 😉 If I absolutely HAVE to choose just one it might have to be my Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Roomiest Rose. It’s perfect for a bit darker lip but also perfect for everyday + it moisturise my lippies!
Describe your most worn wintery make up look?
I am a lipstick kind of girl so it has to be a darker lip with a subtle eye. The lips could be MAC Dare You or Rimmel Apocalips in Big Bang *See what I did there – more lippies*. For the eyes, just something neutral from my collection and might even a subtle smokey eye with a little liner. For the rest of the face I would have to blush it up with my Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Dixie or elf Blush in Blushing Rose. The elf blush is perfect for the winter season.
What beauty produkt would you most like to try next?
I’ve eyen eyeing up the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation – would really love to get my mitts in that one. I’ve heard such lovely things about it. Skin care wise it would have to be the Esteé Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum, think this would do my skin wonders this cold winter! I’ve written a little about my lust here.
What are yout favourite products in your current skin care routine?
At the moment I’m trying out some Ren sample and I kind of really like the Night Cream. I’ll do a first impressions post about the little sample set soon. Another skin care staple is my The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost. I either mix this in with my night cream og use it kind of as a serum efter cleasing & toning but before applying moisturiser. It givea my skin a vitamin C skin boost *as the name nicely hints* and it givea a silky smooth feel. I believe that you could use it as a primer too.
What is your favourite winter scent?
I don’t have a whole lot of perfumes/scents but the one I love for the winter season is my Dolce & Gabbana The One Lace. I’m terrible at describing scents but it’s fruity yet musky if that makes sense? For a very Christmassy scent, I really love Michael Todd True Organics Walnut Grapefruit Polishing Scrub – it seriously smells like Christmas!
