August Beauty Favourites

a model recommends

Fashionably late with these beauty favourites for August. It’s quite a random old selection, too, sorry about that! Some brilliant little bits and pieces though; I know I’ve mentioned the Garnier BB Cream before, but I have been using it loads so it deserved another mention. I have tried zillions of these BB Creams now and MUST do a video on them – I think that this Garnier one and the water-fuse version from Dr Jart are easily the best.

Newest obsession in AMR HQ is the liquid liner “flick”; I’m practising for an upcoming tutorial and I’ve tested out dozens of eyeliners! The best so far? It’s in the video! I still need to get the lengths of my eye-flicks right, which is quite difficult when your eyes are different sizes and one has excess liddage. Have we ever discussed droopy lids? It’s not droopy, so much as just a different shape and size to the other one. Only slightly, but it makes putting on eye-flicks a real pain in the proverbial!

OK, video time. Sit back, relax, let my voice wash over you… Daily Fix readers can click the link HERE if they can’t see the video pane.
