Diary: Sunday September 28th

Hello again!

September has been jam packed with so many exciting beauty updates and I can’t wait to share them all with you. From spending time with Sali Hughes to get the scoop on her new book, hosting Caroline Hirons in Birmingham and doing Sam and Billie Faiers’ make-up yesterday, it’s been go go go but I’ve had so much fun.

To keep me looking fresh faced in such a busy period I’ve relied on Caudalie’s new Hydrating Facial Oil. A couple of drops before bed and my skin looks plump and glowing by morning. As for highlighter, I’ve even side stepped by beloved MAC Vanilla Pigment in favour of the rosier Peaches Pigment in Pearl. It gives a gentle pink glow when it catches the light and is great for warming up dull skin. And eyeshadow? Tom Ford’s Cognac Sable palette was on my pay day hit-list and I am SO glad it is finally mine.
