Oh Spring time, how I welcome an upgrade in beauty and grooming products – especially if they contain blurring. Gently peeling off the layers of dead flesh from winter and unveiling something quite marvelous for spring is one of my favourite feelings to date. Yes, I may have consumed my sheer weight in blue cheese over the festive period, but nothing these wonders can’t distract from. When it comes to skin perfecting and blurring – I’ve invested in some new spring time essentials.
I like to choose if I want my skin radiant or not – I don’t like a shine to choose me. I’m enjoying this Steep Clean Mattifying Toner Pads from Bliss Spa. They’re refreshing to use in the morning (I need all the help I can get before 11am) and I lost all of my toners in the recent house move. Don’t ask where they’ve gone my sweetheart I couldn’t tell you. My oil levels are more controlled and my skin hasn’t been dried out at all – winner. If I want a touch of a glow on my skin I’ll use a foundation with a glow base in it (Max Factor ones are great).
To add to a perfected base, I’m using this Murad Invisiblur as a primer. Anything with blur technology is to me, a filter in a bottle. Skin is instantly smoothed and any foundation or tinted moisturiser I choose to put on top looks perfected. I apply further foundations etc with a brush extremely lightly so I don’t disturb any of the Murad Invisiblur underneath. Plus we’re getting more blue skies so I love that it is formulated with SPF 30.
Where would I be without my tan? Pale and jobless I imagine. The new St. Tropez Tinted Gradual Tan is my wonder product. Instant bronze and blur on top (literally body looks like a magazine photoshoot) whilst underneath the bronze a faux glow develops on my skin. Use every other day and gradually build a natural looking glow. DREAM.
My work life is full – if you haven’t been watching my YouTube videos please have a look, you’ll understand why I’m running on empty 247. This Marks and Spencer Rosie Huntington-Whitely Miracle Concealer stick sweeps under the eyes and around my nose (to conceal my broken capillaries) in seconds. I use my finger to blend the concealer as I’ve found it slightly too thick to be blended with a brush. No biggy.
Happy Spring Time! Roll.On.Summer.
