Five Beauty Boosters for Rainy Days

August. Supposedly warm and sunny, surely, but this year someone seems to have forgotten. Currently I have five dogs in my house who are all fed up of being kept in, or alternatively despatched to fetch tennis balls lobbed at high speed (well high speed for me, anyway) from my back door because I really, really hate the rain. I suspect, judging from the alacrity with which they return, they don’t much like it either, particularly the smaller ones who are very low to the ground.

It’s on days like these, or months like these, that I’m inevitably looking for a beauty fix, that special product that always gives you a lift no matter how tired and fed up you are and I have five favourites which seem to be most used, this month in particular.

They will all give you a glow, make you feel better when you look in the mirror, and if you don’t get asked (as I was last year) if you’ve had a face lift………….(compliment or not? I couldn’t decide) you will for certain look indefinably better than the person sitting next to you on the train.

Try these and you’ll see what I mean:

Radiance Soft Lights in Tint radiance nars super orgasm radiance chantecaille

Chantecaille Aquablush in Brilliance
Nars Blush in Super Orgasm
Smashbox Softlights in Tint
Bobbi Brown Pink Quartz Shimmer Brick
Clinique Uplighting Illuminator

and also Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily Soft Body Shimmer for a subtle sparkle and fragrance anywhere. One of my all time favourites.

I’m happy to say that I’m off on Thursday and if I don’t write something tomorrow I’ll be writing to you from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, at the end of the week. Once I’ve unpacked, spent a little time in the pool and generally relaxed. I can’t wait. Happy holidays…………………………………………………
