    Ok, I use a cold cream I make myself with olive and calendula oil and witch hazel for toner everyday and then a mild exfoliant a couple of days a week. Usually that's it but sometimes I have....

    Light makeup days -

    Tinted moisturiser
    Highlighter
    Blush
    Mascara
    Lip balm or stain

    Heavy makeup nights -

    Tinted moisturiser
    Highlighter
    Blush
    Eyebrow shadow
    Eyeliner
    Mascara
    Lip balm
    Lipstick
    Lip liner
    Powder to set.

    Then remove with the cold cream and start again the next morning :)

    Oh, I'll add that my moisturiser has SPF in it but if I'm going out in the sun at all ( I'm an Aussie) I'll wear a full protection sunscreen and I won't wear makeup as I find it too heavy to have both.

    I hear that skin cancer rates are sky high in Australia with Aborigines being the exception. The sun is a killer and life giver at the same time!
     
  5. True. On the other hand, rates of vitamin D deficiency are soaring amongst Australian women! 1 in 3 now, I believe. We took the "slip slop slap" message a bit too much to heart, but it is difficult not to when everyone you know over the age of 40 has had skin cancers removed.

    For number of products, if I am just around the house or walking up to the post office it'll just be a light day cream. If I am going out-out (not just to the shops!) it'll be:
    Day cream
    Under eye concealer
    Foundation
    Colour-corrective concealer
    Eye primer
    Cream eyeshadow
    powder eyeshadows
    gel liner
    eyebrow pencil
    mascara
    lipstain
    lipstick
    lipliner
    translucent powder
    ... and sometimes blush depending on whether I feel pallid.

    Yes I too love using products but I always prefer to use home remedies or else natural products.I usually love to read post related to skin and hair care.Reading post I get idea for my skin and then I do try it.I am hairdresser so I know how to make products,what to try and what not.I tried my own site products whre I have both hair and skin care products.Like mizani products and olive oil products.
     
  8. Skin care wise I use one of a few different cleansers or scrubs depending on how my skin feels; foreo luna to wash with; then after, a skin oil if needed; eye cream and then moisturiser (different ones for day and night). Make up is a bit different. On and day to day basis it's foundation, powder, eye primer, eye shadow, eye liner and mascara, then lip balm and lipstick. Sometimes I use blusher, but find it difficult to get a good vintage red one. They all seem too peach, dusky rose or tawny. I have a perfect Dior one that is really red, but want to buy a cruelty free one instead. If i'm going out at night I tend to amp up the eye shadow so it's not just a nude/neutral one but has some shimmer or is more pigmented as well as the eyeliner etc.
     
  9. Oh and hair products are shampoo (loads of different ones depending on whether my hair needs a gentle wash or days worth of hairspray removal!), conditioner, treatment a couple of times a week as my hair is bleached platinum and that and the hairspray really dries it out, gel/mousse/setting lotion and hairspray to finish.

    I think home remedies are best. They do not have any side effects if used properly.
