Guest Blog – Louise Chandler

Guest Blog today is all about Louise Chandler

Tell me a bit about yourself?

I am born and bred in Reading Berkshire and am the youngest of 6 kids. My parents came to Reading in the early 1960’s from Barbados and worked in various places around Reading. I was educated locally and went to University at Winchester and Surrey to study media and radio. I have worked in commercial and BBC media organisations for 10 years and enjoy being creative and working with different people. I enjoy watching films, dining out, cooking and baking, going to gigs, festival, theatre, museums and galleries.

What in your make up bag?

Always Vaseline to keep lips moisturised – it is a must!

Hand cream (Nivea or Soap & Glory) to keep my hands and cuticles moisturised – I can’t stand dry hands!

Nail file – my nails always snag and tear so I always have a few of these

Hair clips & hair bands to tame fly away hair that won’t lie flat!

Perfume – love fresh sweet scents

Mac Compact – a great base

Avon / Boots No 7 Primer for the face, it keeps my oily skin matt and enables my make up application to be flawless

Mascara – to make my eyelashes look as long as possible

Eye shadow – I tend to wear pinks / purples that suit my skin tone

Lip gloss – that has subtle colour for neutral lips

Tweezers to pluck my eye brows

What your skincare routine?

Cleanse, tone and moisturise!

Cleanse – I tend to use a facial wash that is suited to oily skin such as Neutrogena

Tone – I often use facial wipes to gently remove any excess dirt

Moisturise – I moisturise using an oil free moisturiser that has SPF and will ensure my skin is mattified.

What one beauty product couldn t you live without?

Lip balm / Vaseline – I simply cannot have dry lips!

Who do you most admire for their style and beauty and why?

Beyonce – she is naturally beautifully with great skin tone and bone structure. Her make up can transform her to look completely different and she has natural radiance.
