I was in Paris with the beautiful skincare brand Darphin the other week and decided that instead of having a blissful, baby-free lie-in at the hotel (Le Meurice), I’d set my alarm for 6am and get some filming done. What a berk. As it turned out, it didn’t get light enough outside for me to film in my room until about 7.30am so I sort of pottered about reading the copy of Grazia I nicked from the Eurostar lounge and cursing myself for being such a work-obsessed twit.
By the time the light was okay near the window I only had around half an hour to do my filming and so the any makeup I did needed to be quick and easy. It had been a sticky 31 degrees outside in Paris the day before and so it also had to be makeup that would hold in place and not slide about. I went for my trusted favourite, foundation-wise – the Perfection Lumiere Velvet from Chanel – and kept everything pretty simple. A bit of bronzer, something shady on the eyes and a posh nude lipstick.
You can see the full process, including room service interruption (for your information, I had a fresh fruit platter, a yoghurt, a pastries basket, an orange juice and poached eggs on toast with a side of bacon – the baby-to-be made me do it) in the video below or by clicking here. I’ve listed the products used at the bottom of the page – I must do a standalone review for the new Bourjois concealer because it really is tip-top.
