I've added a few products to my daily routine of late, and they're worthy of a mention. 

You may or may not have picked up on the fact that I'm something of a die hard Real Housewives fan, and if there is something the Wives do well, it is an out of this world reunion show glow. In my endless quest for the perfect glow, I came across Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfector in pearl. I first saw this on Lisa Eldridge's website, and given that everything she says is gospel, I purchased it without further ado. I also got myself a No 7 foundation brush for application (also on Ms Eldridge's advice). At the moment, I mix Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser with the Becca Skin Perfector on the back of my hand and apply it with my new brush. And it's lovely. It imparts such a perfect glow - exactly what I was after. It isn't OTT, just pretty and healthy looking skin that lasts all day. Plus, SPF 25! How could it be better?? 

I've also gone through a bit of a patchy eyebrow situation of late. I noticed recently that when I'm concentrating very intensely - staring at a screen or reading a book - I stroke my left eyebrow. Yes it's very odd, and it led to a patchy brow. Not good. So, I have now tried to stop myself being such an odd bod, and whilst the brow grows back, I've investigated eyebrow pencils. Again, I stumbled across Kevin Aucoin's Precision Brow Pencil on Lisa's site - you're sensing a theme. It's a brilliant pencil for people who have never attempted to use a pencil on their brows before. I'm notoriously dreadful at such things. I'm very lucky with my eyebrows, I don't pluck them, thread them or do anything to them and they tend to look like I do maintain them. The Kevin Aucoin pencil is perfect because it adds just the right depth of colour and the handy brush on the end of the pencil ensures the product is blended and eyebrows are groomed. I wouldn't be without it now. 

Finally, make up can only go so far if your skin isn't up to par. I received a pot of Eve Lom Cleanser for Christmas and have been really enjoying using it every evening with a muslin cloth. Not only is it a gentle, effective exfoliator (it's no exaggeration to say my skin has never felt so soft and smooth post-cleansing and during the day) and also, it is a lovely, calming pre-bed step of an evening. I'd highly recommend it.
