I lug my Kookai make-up bag with me to work every day. Occasionally I think to open it when my lips start to feel dry and need a smattering of my Chanel lip-balm or Mac dusty pink lip gloss. The thought never occurs to me to comb my hair, despite the fact I often look windswept in a bad way, but choose to do nothing about it!!
My morning make-up ritual is quite simple :
Firstly I moisturise my face with a mixture of ASAP and Priori beauty products from Beauty on the Strand so that my skin is well hydrated and looking fresh and clean before I apply on any of my make-up.
Mac Prep + Prime is currently the product I use (in a vain attempt to cover up my bags) under my eyes. A whip of my waterproof Clarins mascara which wipes off in a breeze, and is perfect for ensuring no panda eyes. A dab of bare minerals bronzer on my cheeks (why I do this, I have no idea) as my cheek bones are well evident. I think in wintertime, it adds a bit of colour. Yes, a quick brush of the hair and occasionally a use of my GHD straighteners to get rid of those annoying wispy bits and off I go. To be honest, I spend more time putting my outfit together than on looking after my face. I really don’t have a clue about how to put on makeup.
So what exactly do I have in my make-up purse:-
2 lip glosses; 2 lip pencils; 1 lip balm; 1 glitter gloss; 1 precision eye-definer (whatever that does); 3 lipsticks; 1 comb; 1 mirror; 1 make-up brush; 1 highlighting cream; 2 mascaras; 1 beauty-flash balm; small bottle of perfume; packet of tissues, hairclips; hair-ties etc. It weighs a ton. I feel so secure with having it near-by just in case. However what I really need to do is de-clutter. Do you?
