D E A R A N O N Y M O U S


LOTS OF MY AWESOME READERS (YOU) EMAIL ME RE: SKIN AND MAKEUP TRICKS AND MORE RECENTLY A FEW OF YOU ANONYMOUS FOLKS ASKED WHAT IT IS I'M USING. SO ANONYMOUS: LET'S TALK SKIN! TO BEGIN I'M A REAL PRODUCT HO. SEPHORA CEO'S AND CFO'S ALIKE SHOULD SEND ME SOME FLOWERS FOR HELPING (IF NOT SINGLE HANDEDLY) GET THEM THEIR FAT BONUSES DELIVERED EACH YEAR IN THEIR NUMBERED BANK ACCOUNTS! AND LET ME TELL YOU I'VE TRIED EM ALL SO HERE IS WHAT I THINK IS THE BEST...

FACE.



REMOVE: CREOLIN H20. I DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT'S IN IT OR WHY IT'S GOOD BUT ALL GREAT MAKE UP ARTISTS HAVE IT IN THEIR KIT'S. IT'S A WELL KNOWN INSIDERS TIP IN MY WORKING CIRCLES. THE GOOD NEWS? IT'S 12 EURO. THE BAD NEWS? YOU CAN ONLY BUY IT IN FRANCE. 

WASH:  1ST. KORA FOAMING FACIAL WASH- THIS IS MY FAVORITE OF ALL PRODUCTS. IT'S ORGANIC, AND THE PRODUCT THAT GOT ME INTO ORGANIC PRODUCTS. IT SMELLS WEIRD BUT LET ME TELL YOU THIS IS A ONE WAY TICKET TO GREAT SKIN. PLUS, IF IT'S GOOD ENOUGH FOR MIRANDA? ITS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME. 2ND. CETAPHIL IT'S GENTLE. SIMPLE AND IT GET'S THE JOB DONE WITHOUT IRRITATING MY ALREADY IRRITATED SKIN AFTER WORKING UNDER LARGE LIGHTS AND TWO TONNE OF MAKEUP.

SPRITZ: ROSE WATER SPRAY. I FORGOT WHICH ONE I USE BUT THIS IS KIND OF A WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET PRODUCT. TRY TO FIND AN ORGANIC ONE THATS SMALL ENOUGH TO KEEP IN YOUR HANDBAG OR IN THE FRIDGE. IS A LIFE SAVER AFTER YOU'VE ACCIDENTLY FALLEN ASLEEP ON THE BEACH OR PASSENGER NEXT TO YOU ON A LONG HAUL.

MOISTURIZE. OKAY THIS IS WHERE I GET A BIT SCHIZOPHRENIC AND NEED EVERYTHING I CAN GET MY LITTLE PAWS ON. I USUALLY SWITCH BETWEEN THREE PRODUCTS. 1. LA MER'S MIRACLE CREAM. I GOT THIS JUST BECAUSE I COULD AFFORD TO REALLY, I DO LIKE IT. AND IT DOES MAKE YOU LOOK AIRBRUSHED BUT IT IS REALLY HEAVY SO I ONLY USE IT WHEN I'M A. OFF A FLIGHT OR B. HUNGOVER. THEIR HAND CREAM ON ANOTHER NOTE- IS FANTASTIC. 2. EMBRYOLISEE "24HR MIRACLE" CREAM WHICH IS REALLY JUST A LIGHTER VERSION OF THE LA MER- ALTHOUGH THIS IS ANOTHER FRANCE ONLY NON-EXPORT BUT  YOU CAN FIND IT ONLINE. 3. MY ACTUAL FAVORITE IS THE CLINIQUE MENS "M LOTION". IT JUST WORKS REALLY WELL, EVEN THOUGH IT SEEMS BORING. AND FOR MY BODY I'M A DIE HARD ALPHA KERRI LOTION FAN. ITS THE ONLY THING I'LL EVER USE FOR THE REST OF MY PRODUCT HO DAYS.

ONCE A WEEK. DERMALOGICA'S MULTIVITAMIN CAPSULES. JUST INVEST. TRUST ME. 

ONE A MONTH. OXYGEN FACIALS. THESE ARE THE BEST FACIAL EVER. MY SKIN IS NOT A FAN OF SOMEONE PUSHING ON IT WITH TWO METAL STICKS AND USUALLY LETS ME KNOW 3-5 DAYS LATER. BUT THIS STICK FREE TREATMENT SEEMS TO MAKE ME LOOK LIKE A NEWBORN. *MAKE SURE WHEN YOU BOOK ONE IN ASK IF IT'S THE O2 SPRAY OR THE MACHINE THEIR USING AS THE ULTRACEUTICALS THE MACHINE MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE. 



MAKE UP.

FOUNDATION: I ALTERNATE BETWEEN GIORGIO ARMANI FLUID IN 6.5 AND GIORGIO ARMANI IN A TUBE IN 3.5 YEAR ROUND. WITH THE FLUID I PUT IT ON THE BACK OF MY HAND FIRST AND THEN PRESS IT ONTO THE SKIN WHERE NEEDED. I PICKED THAT ONE UP FROM THE MAKEUP TEAMS THAT HOVER AROUND MY FACE 9-5. SEEMS TO WORK A LOT BETTER THAN RUBBING IT ON LIKE SWEDISH MASSEUSE. WITH THE MATTE VERSION IN A TUBE I USE A KABUKI BRUSH AND BUFF IT IN, IN CIRCLES. NO ONE TOLD ME TO DO THAT- MOSTLY AGAINST IT, BUT IT'S FINE IF YOU JUST MAKE SURE YOU WASH THE BRUSH A FEW TIMES A WEEK. 

BLUSH. I JUST STARTED USING A CREAM BLUSH FROM M.A.C CALLED TEA PETAL. MIX SOME BALM (I USE LIZ EARLE MIRACLE BALM) (P.S IT'S JUST OCCURRED TO ME I BUY MOST PRODUCTS WITH THE TERM "MIRACLE" ON THE LABEL) WITH A  SMALL AMOUNT OF THE BLUSH, JUST DAB IN ON THE CHEEK BONES. LESS IS MORE ON THAT COLOUR OR YOU'LL END UP LOOKING LIKE THE PERENNIAL "MAC GOTH CHICK" THAT WE SO OFTEN SEE AT THE MALL. AND BRONZER WISE.  THE ONLY COLOUR THAT I'VE FOUND THAT I LIKE IS THE MINERAL BRONZER BY RIMMEL. IS LIGHT ENOUGH TO NOT MAKE ME LOOK LIKE GEORGE HAMILTON AFTER ONE OF HIS SPRING BREAK SPRAY TANS. 

LIPS. I ONCE HAD A READER WHO TOLD ME I HAD "PORN MOUTH" NOW WHILST THIS SERVED AS GREAT AMUSEMENT TO MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY FOR MONTHS IT CERTAINLY KEPT ME AWAY FROM ALL LIPSTICKS OR GLOSS FOR ABOUT TWO YEARS. I USE CARMEX. THAT'S IT. NO MORE PORN MOUTH FOR THIS LADY.

AS ALWAYS IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, JUST ASK ME!

  13. DEAR ANONYMOUS & ELLE!

    I USE KERASTASE SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER AND SWITCH BETWEEN THE GREEN AND PINK BOTTLES. I ALSO REALLY LIKE KEVIN MURPHY. MAKE SURE YOU SWITCH YOUR SHAMPOO'S AROUND EVERY MONTH OR SO OTHERWISE THEY JUST DON'T WORK LIKE THEY SHOULD! I ALSO GET A LOT OF TREATMENTS AT THE HAIRDRESSERS. FOR CONCEALER I USE A STILLA ONE IN A LITTLE SILVER TUBE BUT MOSTLY I JUST USE THE FOUNDATION!

    ANYMORE QUESTIONS JUST ASK!

  16. thank you for sharing!!! I'm a bare bones type so I need all the tips I can get - my wedding day was the 1st and only time I've worn foundation in my 23 years....

    so - are you religious about all this stuff???
    I'm so curious about this because it's precisely what I lack!!! when I've been out drinking with my man all night, cleansing is the last thing on my mind...... but your skin is so epic and it may be the discipline so I should regulate!!!

  17. Your skin is amazing, seriously tempted to try a few of these out. Your casting photos are amazing, btw.

  21. do you naturally have good skin? or have you worked at it by trialling all these products and finding the best ones for you?

    xx

    ReplyDelete
  22. Do you use an eye cream?

    ReplyDelete
  23. ok im curious to know more too ;) totally with sammi...i'm so willing to buy your fav products...besides the la mer creme i've used that def think its jst all hype and not worth the $$$. tho my make up went on like butter with it, but it's way too thick to use everyday and night. So with Sammi - is the secret you naturally have good skin? or have you used 50 thousands products and find these ones really work best for you? xx
