This week is the turn of the very lovely Amrita from http://www.the6inchstilettos.blogspot.com/. One of the first blogs I actually started following and I still love it now. Loads of varied content, great reviews and lovely swatches. What’s not to like! So lets get on and find out what Amrita’s best things are!
Can you talk me through your daily skin care regimen, which products you use and why?
Morning: Wash face with Neutrogena Daily Face Wash/Mask combo with Clarisonic, apply Dr. Brandt Lineless Eye Cream and then Nivea Visage Pure and Natural Soothing Day Cream.
Evening: Remove makeup with Simple Sensitive Skin facewipes, use Lancome Baume Eclat to get rid of all traces of makeup, rinse off, use Lancome Tonique Douceur (toner) and apply my Bobbi Brown Extra Hydrating Night Cream. If I’m suffering from a breakout then apply Dr. Brandt Blemishes No More Intensolution which is a Godsend!
What shampoo and conditioner are you devoted to?
I’m not devoted to any shampoo or conditioner because I’m always going between them all. I tend to repurchase Pantene Aqua Light and Aussie shampoos & conditioners though.
What about your top three make up brands generally speaking?
Ummm.. MAC for general bits and bobs, Barry M for nailpolishes and Revlon for lipsticks/lipglosses
Ok some specifics now!
What is your favourite foundation and why?
At the moment but go-to foundation is Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation. I’m not really a *big* foundation person so don’t own very many different types but my Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation is AMAZING. It gives great coverage and can be layered if you want more and it doesn’t look cakey on.
What is your favourite mascara and why?
I don’t have a favourite mascara because I’m still looking for the perfect one but at the moment I’m alternating between Lancome Hypnose Drama, Lancome Hypnose Precious Cells and Bare Escentuals Buxom Lash.
What one product do you think every cosmetic aficionado should have in their collection?
A really good moisturiser. In order for your makeup to sit nicely and evenly, you need a good base so investing in a moisturiser that is perfect for your skin is a must. It doesn’t have to be expensive and everyone is different so have a poke around the shelves in Boots and see what suits you.
Thanks very much for this Amrita, you’re not the only person who has recommended the Pantene Aqua Light so I need to check it out soon. That Bobbi Brown foundation is another product I’ve heard several people mention of late so another thing I need to check out. Also there’s a blog you’ve recommended that I’ve not yet checked out so I’m off to do that now!
So that’s it for another week, if you fancy seeing yourself here, please drop me a line to firstname.lastname@example.org.
