Hey Beautiful People!
Friday greetings to one and all! I am so excited to be back with another instalment of Beauty Is… my new feature that highlights what beauty means to YOU! We all view beauty differently and have routines and secrets that have been passed down through the generations. This is your opportunity to share a little of your beauty wisdom with the world.
This week I am pleased to introduce the very beautiful (definitely inside and out) Felicity to you. She took some time out with me to talk beauty…
Hey Felicity! 👋
1: Do you wear makeup?! If so, when did you start?
Yes! Pretty much every day since I was about 15.
2: How would you describe your makeup style?
Natural-looking, simple, fresh!
3: What product can you not live without? (Skincare or makeup)
Oohhhh I can’t choose… mascara or something for my lips – gloss or just blistex.
4: Breakdown your beauty regime?
I have to use a foaming cleanser because anything gel/cream-based clogs up my pores and I break-out. I use St Ives Apricot Scrub and have been addicted to it daily for 10 years!!
I use a light moisturiser, then for every day I wear foundation, concealer, blusher, mascara and lip gloss. I also use an eyebrow pencil and curl my eyelashes.
For weekends and evenings I wear a shimmery eye colour and use a highlighter, benetint and the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick.
At night I use micellar cleansing water to remove my make-up, and a toner.
My skin is definitely clearer since I started cleansing properly last year rather than just using make-up wipes.
I occasionally use a clay mask which is great for my oily skin.
5: Who is your Beauty Inspiration or icon
Julia Roberts, Blake Lively and Beyoncé.
6: Makeup nightmare
White lipstick!!!! I bought it from The Body Shop when I was about 14. Absolutely awful.
7: Any tips or secrets?
Remove your make-up properly!!
To look fresh when you’re really tired, line your lower lash line with white/nude eyeliner to open up your eyes.
8: In a sentence or two, explain what beauty truly means to you?!
Beauty means knowing who you are and learning to accept yourself inside and out. It also means being a selfless, compassionate, genuine person who lives life thinking of others beside themselves.
I love your makeup nightmare. I am sure I own some white lipstick somewhere. Oh the shame! Your inner beauty is inspiring as well as your outer gorgeousness. Thank you so much for taking part Felicity! You doll!
