Another Tag

I saw this open tag on lydiaoc's blog so decided to do it. I'm also tagging anybody that wishes to do it!

Whats your favourite makeup look?
I’d probably describe it as a golden smokey eye. Gold toned shadow on the lid, darker brown in the crease, smokey black/dark brown in the outer corner. Brown or black eyeliner, peachy/pink blush and a nude lip. Pretty simple really.

What part of your body do you love?
My waist and hips ratio. Although lately the waist is catching up with the hips...

Who is your beauty icon?
Sienna Miller, I think she’s effortlessly gorgeous, I love the clothes she wears, and she comes across a really nice person too.

What beauty products instantly make you feel sexy?
False eyelashes. They work wonders.

How do you look after your skin?
I use products that work well for me. Angels on Bare Skin facial wash, Simple gentle cleanser/N0.7 Oil balancing cleanser, Simple toner/Lush Tea Tree Water, Simple Light Moisturiser. Eat well, lots of vitamin C (very important for nice skin), and drink lots of water.

What is your signature scent?
Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel, although I think I need to update it, I’m maybe getting too old for it now.

What are your hair secrets?
Avoid using heat every single day, try to have some days where I let my hair go natural and do it’s own wild thing, it’s not pretty but hey, neither is damaged hair. Heat protection lotions and potions, Redken Extreme iron repair is pretty good, and I use Aussie 3 minute miracle one to two times a week in place of my normal conditioner. Not really secrets I know, but this is how I care for my hair.

How do you pamper yourself?
Nice long bubble bath usually does the job, with as many Lush products as possible.

What is your pet peeve?
I have a few, but beauty pet peeves would be those god awful hair extensions where it’s really obvious and looks like two hair styles going on. I also don’t like it when girls stop applying their foundation at their jawline, especially when the foundation shade is at least 3 shades darker than their natural skin colour.

What would be your desert island must haves?
A good book, ipod, razor, mascara, large strawhat, pillow, chocolate...

Finally, do you have a beauty philosophy?
I think beauty is the entire package, having flawless make up can make you pretty, but being a good person will make you beautiful.

@Jen, I managed to get a 100ml bottle for something ridiculous like £25! I was perfume shopping in America, so bought 3 bottles as presents, this was one of them so I got a discount! I used to wear it all the time but it's running out now, so I use it more sparingly. Dread to think how much the same size bottle will cost here :s xxx

@Shirley, you're welcome. Hope you do come back! xxx
