My beauty regime is rather basic these days and as for make-up, the days I'm free of it far outweigh the days I actually wear it. At the moment, I have a few products I'm due to replace so I thought I'd turn to you all for some recommendations...
Unless I'm going out somewhere extra special (and seeing as I can count the number of times I've been out at night this year child-free on one hand), I don't tend to wear foundation. If I'm home, I'll just stick to moisturiser and if I'm heading out and about, I like to use a tinted one. I've been happy with the Clarins one I've used for some time now as it's a great shade for my skin, but it doesn't have a very high SPF factor (it's only SPF 6) and it's not oil free, two things I would prefer in such a product.
I find these days that even if I have other make-up on, without something on my lips, I look washed out. A simple lip gloss is my preferred option for day to day use. However, I'm yet to find 'the one'...one which is not sticky and that my hair doesn't end up plastered to, in a natural looking shade.
I tan quite easily if I spend time outdoors but I've become very sun conscious and would rather turn to a tanning product to achieve that golden glow. The only one I've ever used was the Palmer's Body Bronzer, a 'build up gradually over time' type product. I'm on the hunt for one that isn't orange, doesn't streak, won't stain clothes and is easy to apply.
So ladies, do any of you have any recommendations for the above? I'd love to hear what brands and types you prefer or your thoughts on ones you've tried in the past...
