    Exfoliating Toners…what are they and do I need one?

    New Year, New skin? Possibly!

    Have you heard of Exfoliating toners or Acid Toners as they are sometimes referred to? If you’re not using one trust me, you’re missing out on the multitude of benefits.

    First off, I wanted to write this post specifically on this topic as I was speaking to one of my girlfriends, whom I adore deeply, but would not allow me to use her name on my blog so we will use an alias and call her “Sheera” ( sorry, but you should have let me use your real name!)

    Anastaisia Pure Hollywood liquid lipstick

    Pixi Rose Gold Blush Duo and DIOR lip scrub/tint.

    I continue to use the CHANEL bronzer because IT IS THE BEST cream bronzer I have every used and I can’t live without it! It’s perfect for layering on top of fountain to add colour to your complexion.

    The CHANEL lip gloss is a clear gloss and is always in my bag for those essential moments were my lips need a touch up!

    For this look I used the green and gold toned Charlotte Tilbury Rebel Palette. I love a good easy smokey eye for daytime and this palette is perfect for the new season. I’m also wearing The Vichy Tient cream foundation in shade #45. The foundation is perfect as well as it’s not too heavy but has enough coverage to wear during the day.  If you have dry skin, as I do, you will love the hydration this cream foundation will give your skin. It dries to a satin finish and lasts all day ( I have a full review on the Tient Ideal Makeup Range coming up!).  I filled in my brows with the amazing Milani Easy Brow in dark brown and added the Pixi Rose Gold blush to the apples of my cheeks to give just enough colour for the day. I also applied Anastaisa Pure Hollywood liquid lipstick to finish off this look. The colour is just perfect for Spring( all the time actually!). It’s a gorgeous light peach with a bit of pink.
