When you go to work every day knowing you’ll be on television, you always want to look your best.  I’ve tried a lot of skincare and beauty products and I now have my skincare and makeup routine down pat!

I’m lucky enough to have wonderful experts in the television makeup department who’ve showed me how to do my own makeup perfectly (yes news reporters do their own hair and makeup every day!).  They’ve also showed me all the best brands and products which they buy and recommend.

I believe it doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated to have a great beauty regime which really works and brings out the best in you.  Plus, if you buy the right products you don’t waste time and money on the wrong ones, right!?

Here are my favorite products:


The right concealer is so hard to find!  I need a concealer which does it all.  Who really wants to carry around two?  This Hourglass concealer is thick enough to cover blemishes and smooth and creamy enough to brighten up shadows under the eyes.  It also has serious staying power.

Dior Foundation

My Dior Forever foundation and I have been together since I was 18 years old and it’s never let me down.  A foundation should bring out your beauty, not cover it up.  This is a light, matte coverage with no shine with a really natural finish.  I wear bronzer, blush and powder to work so wearing too much foundation underneath can look a bit overdone.

Laura Mercier liquid eye liner

I do not know what I’d do without this product!  I wear liquid liner to work every day.  It really makes eyes “pop” on telly.  I put it on thicker for a night time look, even with a bit of a wing at the edges.  I also love liquid liner during the day.  It’s nice to line just the top lid for the weekend.

Laura Mercier lip gloss

This this magic lip creme is a mix between a lipstick and a gloss it’s super natural and gives you a bit of colour, yet it looks like you’re wearing nothing at all.

Feel free to share any of your favourite products below.  I am always on the look out to roadtest new things!
