My Beauty Alphabet

A - Alpha-H Liquid Gold.  Basically my life blood
B - Bobbi Brown Nude-on-Nude eye palette.  Can't cope with the thought of this running out
C - Chapstick.  I get through a lorra, lorra lipbalm and always come back to Chapstick for price and results
D -Diptyque Feu de Bois candle.  Just. The. Best. Smell. Ever.
E - Essie, in particular Rose Bowl, Midnight Cami and Bordeaux
F - Face masks - love them.  Current favourites are the Alpha-H clay one and the Bliss Triple Oxygen mask
G - Gosh Velvet Eye Pencils.  Simply unbeatable for smoothness, colour payoff and staying power
H - Hot baths.  I'm normally a shower girl but every now and then, there's nothing better than a hot bubble bath, a face mask and a peaceful half and hour!
I - Ink Pot gel liner from Sleek.  I use the black one at least once a week (and still am not very good at applying it)
J - John Frieda Frizz-Ease Thermal.  The best serum for protecting hair and leaving it silky smooth
K - Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine.  So pretty and very moisturising
L - L'Oreal Volume Collagen mascara.  Quite possibly the best volumising mascara I've ever tried
M - Mac Paintpot in Groundwork.  My daily eye base
N - NYX Tinted Lip Spas.  The perfect combination for me of colour and treatment
O - OPI, most specifically Barefoot in Barcelona, A Quarter of a Cent of Cherry and Pamplona Purple
P - Paul Mitchell Skinny Serum.  Smells like apples and pears, makes my hair glossy and manageable.  Love
Q - Queen of...Ooh La La shaving gel.  A boring but crucial part of my beauty regimen
R - Revlon eye shadow in Rich Sable.  A perfect neutral brown
S - Sally Hansen Cuticle Remover gel.  Not quite sure I can explain what this does, apart from work
T - Too Faced Shadow Insurance.  A very good eye primer that gives UDPP a run for its money
U - Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin.  When I'm not plastering Mac's Groundwork on my lids, it's because I'm doing the same with this
V - Vitalumière foundation by Chanel - I've got a sample and so far, so much love
W - Wipes, of the face variety.  I am now religious about a proper cleansing routine but still, on those nights when wine is my best friend and balance is my enemy, I can't give enough thanks to the person who invented make up remover wipes
X - Xxx - kisses! A bit of cheat one I know, but I can't think of anything beauty-related I've used beginning with X so I'm going to so with kisses because being loved makes me feel extra beautiful (you can all puke now)
Y - Yesterday's blow dry.  Sometimes, hair looks best the day after you style it.  Not always, but somtimes
Z - Zzzzzz! We all know one of the best ways to stay looking as beautiful as possible is to get those zzzz's in

I'd love to know what your Beauty Alphabet would be so I'm going to tag any blogger who's read this and please feel free to copy the format and produce your own!
