Beauty Tag

So it's another tag! Thank you Lamiats!

What's your favourite make up look?
Winged eyeliner on the outer third of my eyes, pale eyeshadow, rosey cheeks and a deep lipstick.
Do you have a beauty vice?
No, the very idea of a beauty vice is sacrilege to me... It's an oxymoron.
What part of your body do you love?
Hmm tricky, I'll say kneecap, sometimes thigh?
Who is your beauty icon?
Audrey Hepburn, and to a lesser extent, Dita Von Teese.
What beauty product makes you feel instantly sexy?
It has to be mascara, doesn't it? Although I haven't found the ultimate HG, I am pretty satisfied with Lancome Hypnose.
How do you look after your skin?
Aargh sensitive subject! I am seriously considering booking in for my first ever botox. I am just worried about how high maintenance it'll be. I might try Glycolic acid first. But right now, I am in a quandary.
What is your signature scent?
I most often wear Elizabeth Arden Green Tea, but my special signature scent is Hermes Un Jardin sur le Nil.
What are your haircare secrets?
Oh dear you've hit on another raw nerve. My hair is in rather a pickle too. There is a good hair mask you can get at Sally's called Osmo, that's helped somewhat...
How do you pamper yourself?
Green and Black's dark cherry chocolate. Makeup shopping spree. Long bath. In that order.
What is your beauty pet peeve?
Orange faces, I just don't understand.
What would your desert island must haves be?
I have to say sunscreen (I'm curently using Lancome's and it's ok), my MAC TLC in Popster from the Hello Kitty collection, tweezers, my waxing kit. OK moving on....
Finally, do you have a beauty philosophy?
Actually, in response to my contest, someone said very accurately: "If it doesn't feel right, it probably doesn't look right". And that's very true. You can feel great in a bold eye and bold lip and bold cheek - and look cool, or wear the same exact makeup but feel self-conscious - and it will look too much. It's all in the execution.

  1. Thanks for the Tag, some of the questions I'll have to think about, but i'll post soon, Thank you xxx

  2. @Llyangel

    Excellent, look forward to it!! x Thanks!

  3. Botox? Noooooo - we've seen your videos you don't need an ounce of it!

  4. @Ondine
    Very kind of you, Thanks! sometimes my "11s" lines seem to be getting horrible. But I can't really afford to get addicted to botox...though it's still a great temptation... xx

  5. Great tag. I'll be doing this one myself later. I don't get orange faces either:( By the way, you are way to wrinkle free to be thinking botox! Although, I know, it's hard to get older. Check out Cult Diva's recent visit to her derm. She shows her results from getting botox around her eyes. It looks painful but it got the lines out.
