Over the course of 2017, I’ll be working with a variety of people to help them with makeup solutions for a multitude of challenges and I’ll be documenting each of them here. I’ll be showing how a range of makeup routines and products can help different people with very different makeup requirements. So watch this space to get some inspiration – whatever your profession or persuasion, I will be giving you tips to help you feel confident, radiant and special.
Meet Charlotte – Yoga Teacher / Supermum.
Our makeup muse for January (our very first) is the beautiful Charlotte Nixon. Charlotte is a yoga instructor, a buyer for Sweaty Betty (my favourite)
and mummy to two little beauties: Ara and Noa (both under two I might add?). Charlotte’s daily life, as you can imagine, is busy, busy, busy, so when she puts on her makeup it needs to last all day long. With the little ones in bed and no time to re-apply her makeup before teaching Yoga, Charlotte needs to know she still looks good when she stands in front her classes.
With Charlotte’s natural glow, we didn’t really need much in terms of foundation. I used the wonderful Espa Tinted Moisturiser. As well as giving the skin a clear complexion it also hydrates it which is very much the order of the day when things are busy and there’s no time at all between appointments, classes and nappy changes! Still on the theme of hydration, Stila Cheek Cream is the perfect long-lasting cheek product, giving a natural rose blush to the skin. We then used Lancome Hypnose Waterproof Mascara on the eye lashes – again, this product is very long-lasting and even when you sweat, it stays put. Imagine your perfect lip balm, but supercharged with amazing ingredients to keep your lips nourished – that’s exactly what you get from the Espa Nourishing Lip Oil.
