Face Saving Make-Up tip
The most transformative make-up tip I have ever learnt is the art of colour correction to counteract dark circles. I dot a mix of peach and yellow concealer under my eyes and blend, then finish with a dusting of Laura Mercia Brightening Powder. I still often look tired, but this trick definitely makes me look more alive than I would otherwise!
Desert Island item
Beauty-wise, I would opt for Emma Hardie Plump & Glow Hydrating Facial Mist to cool and hydrate my sunburnt face! But I think I would get pretty bored pretty quickly so although I know it would be a little out of place on a desert island, the item I would pick would be a piano. I’ve just started playing again after a 10 year break and I can lose hours sitting and murdering playing music.
I love a good dark rum with a splash of Diet Coke. My Guyanese friend introduced me to El Dorado 21 Year Old which is the best I have ever tasted – but it’s outrageously expensive here, so I’m waiting until she goes to Guyana and brings some back for me until I can drink it again (chop chop Angela!)
Play-time or down-time
I love the down-time either side of play-time – getting ready for a night out is always a joy, as I get to play with my huge stash of make-up – I always give myself at least an hour to put my face on so I can experiment a bit. And the day after (as long as I’m not too hungover!) I love binge-watching trashy TV shows on Netflix and laughing with my friends about all the ways we have inevitably embarrassed ourselves the night before – they are all hilarious and we can’t be trusted in public when we’re together!
Favourite thing in the world
My Kindle has been a revelation – I love reading anything and everything, and spend hours trawling through bestseller lists. I’ve got a list of things I want to read saved on my iPhone that I think I may struggle to make it through in my lifetime, and I add to it daily! My Kindle has transformed my 2-hour daily commute into enjoyable me-time as I get to spend it all reading and currently get through at least one book a week! I guess my husband isn’t bad either :-).
Where you hope to be in ten years in ten words
In Bali, sipping rum enjoying the fruits of my labour (but more realistically – where I am but richer, wiser, even happier and thinner!!)
