I wish I was more unpredictable with my weekly roundup choices but here we are, a typical Kate selection consisting of big hair, good skincare and a dewy complexion.
Of course, I still can’t get enough of the Bumble and bumble Pret-a-Powder (£21.50) – this is a dream come true for my too-soft mane. I always need a product to put some texture in to my hair, that way the hair styles I go for (messy, no effort involved, bedhead…) hold better and my hair has more body. This little wonder is a mix of dry shampoo, style extender and volume powder and I can confirm it works miracles. It doesn’t feel dirty or thick in the hair, and it doesn’t show up a questionable grey shade either. In fact, it looks pretty amazing – it boosts at the roots and down the lengths without making the hair look dry, and it helps to keep my hair looking amazing and fresh for longer. Yep, I love it – I’ll stop gushing on now.
A new addition to my skincare stash is the Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Oil-Control Cleansing Mask (£19) – I don’t have oily skin but I have been suffering from blemishes lately and this has been helping a lot. It seems to heal them up quite quick or at least reduce the inflammation – and it has a pretty reasonable price tag too. It works in five minutes to decongest, heal blemishes and help to prevent future spots forming. It doesn’t dry out my skin either, which is ideal.
A fresh-complexion duo I’ve been loving lately is the Liz Earle Signature Foundation (£21) and the Stila One Step Corrector (£24). The Liz Earle foundation has to be one of my all time favourite foundations, I use it all the time – I’m actually having to unscrew the lid and get the product out that way as it’s almost done with. That’s how much I love it. It’s another product which is very fairly priced too, £21 ain’t half bad for a foundation – especially one this amazing. The coverage is great, probably medium with a satin/natural finish – it blends and applies beautifully and lasts so well on my skin.
The Stila primer has been saving my complexion lately, it helps to correct colour irregularities such as redness and also boosts a dull complexion. It also helps to give skin a nice dewy look, so makeup looks fresh for longer. Lovely, lovely stuff!
Have you tried any of these?
