Just Charlie G



I just want to take a moment to thank everyone who has taken part in BBBT to date. It’s one of my favourite things about my blog and I love reading about everyone’s favourite products.


This week is the turn of  Jennifer at www.make-upjournal@blogspot.com. Please do go and check out her blog, this girl does some great things with eye shadow! So lets crack on!

So lets start with some easy questions!

Can you talk me through your daily skin care regimen, which products you use and why?

I  use Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish in the morning, I like how easy and quick it is to use. It really does what it says on the can, my skin is always left soft and clean and I just enjoy using it. I use Philosophy Hope In A Jar for normal skin moisturiser which sinks into my skin really well, it is definitely the best moisturiser I have ever tried for my skin. It sorts out both my dry areas and oilier areas. It works well under makeup too. I also use Liz Earle Daily Eye Repare but have recently been testing out Origins Ginzing. In the evening I use Boots Botanics Soothing Eye Makeup Remover, it is amazing at lifting all makeup off with one swipe. Finally I use Oilatum Natural Repare Face Cream as it is heavier than the Philosophy one so I like it before bed so it can sink in over night.

What shampoo and conditioner are you devoted to?

At the moment I’m using John Frieda Radiant Red Colour Magnifying Shampoo and Conditioner to try to keep my colour bright. I also mix my conditioner with Crazy Colour Fire Red to do a conditioning treatment whilst topping up my colour.

What about your top three make up brands generally speaking?

MAC, Bobbi Brown, Chanel. All three have products which I love and use daily.

Ok some specifics now!

What is your favourite foundation and why?

I am in love with Chanel Vitalumier, I’m lucky enough to have generally good skin with a little redness in areas. This gives me perfect light coverage and a healthy glow. I only need one pump for my whole face so a little goes a long way and it lasts well on my skin. It smells nice too.

What is your favourite mascara and why?

Chanel Inimitable Intense. Amazing lashes with so much volume, length and that hold their curl. It is dark black and the brush makes it easy to get down to the roots and each lash. It’s only let down is that the tube doesn’t last as long as other mascaras do which is a shame.

What one product do you think every cosmetic aficionado should have in their collection?

Bobbi Brown Longwear Gel Liners. Especially the black. My favourite liner, great consistency to apply with and it comes is a good range of colours. I used to be a liquid liner girl and since getting this I am totally converted.

I love finding new blogs so please before you go, please recommend three of your favourite bloggers.

Vivianna Does Makeup – http://www.viviannadoesmakeup.com/ Vivianna writes really well and has such great taste. Her blog is a bit of a danger to me because she always makes me lust after new products! She is gorgeous too and her makeup always looks flawless.

Rebecca Likes Nails – http://rebeccalikesnails.blogspot.com/ Great inspiration for nail art for me. There are lots of simple designs to try and stamping ideas as well as more intricate designs. I like how she gets her inspiration for them and they always look perfect.

Killer Colours – http://solomag.se/killercolours/ A Swedish blog by a girl called Viola. She is stunningly gorgeous. I really enjoy reading her posts, and she is so creative. I find her really inspirational and often want to copy the looks she creates or use them as inspiration. She writes in both Swedish and English.

Thanks so much for taking part Jennifer! Some new blogs for me to discover which is fab. Thank you!
