Beauty School Dropout: 10 things to buy yourself

  1. Kiehl’s Original Musk Eau de Toilette Spray
    They used to call this stuff Love Oil. And there’s a reason for that. So heady and honeyed and dulcet. Truly delicious and warming and pretty much an act of self-love. Also comes in a wonderful body wash.
  2. Votary Intense Eye Oil
    I know, I know. Eye oil is an odd concept but this harnesses retinol to do some properly righteous work. Appallingly expensive but lasts almost forever.
  3. Aldi Lacura Q10 Day Cream
    I don’t love Aldi’s habit of ruthlessly ripping off luxury brands and their ideas – I think it’s cheap. So I tend to stay away. But then Aldi is cheap. This moisturiser does the trick for £1.45. Clever.
  4. Trinny London Miracle Blur
    Polyfilla for the face. If you have big pores or an uneven chin texture or just want to look… smoother. Also you can dab this on at any time of the day or night to just regain a bit of… facial composure. Good stuff.
  5. Color Wow Root Cover Up
    In between appointments? Roots making you look deranged? Not anymore. Super manageable and a life-saver. Keep one within arms length because roots, like chin hairs, appear at the most inconvenient times.
  6. Primark Pure Lipgloss (available in-store)
    It’s two quid. It’s cruelty free. It’s nice and sticky so it lasts longer than most posh ones. Brilliant party make-up.
  7. Bamford B Silent Organic Body Oil
    Deeply relaxing. Full of goodness. Wonderful texture. Elegant bottle. Does it help you sleep? It just might. It certainly won’t hurt.
  8. Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow
    Contouring made simple. Defines features and makes you look candlelit. Easy enough to do in the rear view mirror and yet GLAMOROUS.
  9. Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting Cleansing Gel
    For squeaky clean skin. Somehow seems to excavate all the dirt and horror in one step. A game-changer. No more hormonal breakouts….
  10. Aveda Thickening Tonic
    The closest thing I know to insurance against a bad hair day. Imagine that!
