Great skin = Great make up. Your skin is a blank canvas for make up application. Here are my Top Ten Beauty products to get your skin looking fabulous!

Avene – Thermal Water Spray
Used professionally and personally this water is great for all skins. It adds hydration under moisturiser and over make up. If you’re super sensitive it calms the skin and if your skin is hydrated it adds moisture. The spray is a very fine mist and absorbs easily into the skin.

Dermalogica – Daily Microfoliant
A micro exfoliator in powder form. It’s so gentle that you can use it daily and it’s easy to use (just add water). If you want to save time you can add this to your cleanser and mix well before application then rinse off. Exfoliation also has a brightening effect on the skin, giving it a dewy look.

Sarah Chapman – Age Repair Serum
Skin starts ageing from the age of 25, yes that sounds young but start looking after it then and you’ll be grateful you did in later years. This serum is amazing. Super soft supple skin. It’s filled with antioxidants too. It’s lightweight in texture and can be used daily under moisturisers.

Strivectin – SD Intensive Concentrate
A facial moisturiser like no other, originally made for stretch marks but the tightening effect was so amazing that it’s now one of the best facial moisturisers on the market. You only need a small amount and you can see noticeable results in just 2 weeks.

Dermalogica – Overnight Clearing Gel
Breakouts the week of the wedding is every bride’s nightmare. Overnight clearing gel does exactly what it says on the tin. Apply it to clean dry skin and overnight it will reduce the inflammation surround the spot and diminish the appearance of it. Skin should be back to normal in days!

Elizabeth Arden – Eight Hour Cream
The wonder product in a tube for dry skins. This cream has been on the market for decades but it’s one of the best kept beauty secrets. Great for under make up and for nigh time use to boost your moisturiser. It protects the skin and helps to soothe it.

Dermalogica – Mulitvitamin Power Firm For Eyes
It’s the most luxurious eye cream on the market for the price. Its soft and silky and injects vitamins and moisture into the delicate skin around the yes. It plumps and hydrates to help with dryness and fine lines. You can use it on your lips too!
