Murad Age Reform Anti-Wrinkle Starter Kit Review

As much as I hate to admit it now that I am approaching 40 I do pay a bit more attention to my skin and what I use on it as part of my beauty regime. I will admit that I used to be that woman who went to bed with her make-up on (yes I know shame on me) because quite frankly come 11pm all I want to do is get into bed and go to sleep.

The problem is though this plays havoc with my skin and come the morning my eyes in particular look tired and my skin looks dull. In all honesty though I don’t have the time to go trawling beauty counters and listening to the hard sell from sales assistants to try a million lotions and potions and quite often I don’t want to invest ££’s in a plethora of creams, cleansers, toners and serums. I prefer to try out trial sizes of products, see if they suit my skin and my lifestyle and don’t break the bank.

Contouring palettes, Stila blushers and new MAC cosmetics

Last week I was really poorly and despite feeling better than I have in months my body clearly wasn’t having any of it and I broke out in horrendous shingles down my body.  Whilst the discomfort was unbearable it did mean that the nights I couldn’t sleep I got to browse loads of amazing blogs, YouTube tutorials and magazine articles about new beauty products.  In particular contouring palettes, concealers and spring palettes.

I don’t claim to be any kind of make up expert of rank myself up there as a beauty blogger but I know what I like and I know how I like my makeup to look.  There isn’t a day that goes by without me wearing my make up, it is part of me and I feel polished and professional when I wear it and believe that there is no excuse for not having time to do your make up on a daily basis.  The amount of products on the market now from good coverage BB creams to gorgeous face tanning gels you can add to your moisturiser it is really easy and quick to manage just one or two things in the morning.
