Morning Beauty Routine: It’s All In The KISS

Morning Beauty Routine: It’s All In The KISS


Not that kind of kiss.

Although it never hurts, the keep-it-simple-stupid kind of morning beauty routine is the one I’m talking about.



Wherever I am, whatever the day I practise the same morning routine and it is a simple one. Like cleaning the teeth, I can’t get going without these well-established rituals.

I might beauty-up at a different time of the morning but certain routines and products are non-negotiable.

HabitYes, definitely. There is not only a degree of comfort in practising routine but also the obvious benefits reaped from regular skincare.

Necessity? Yes, absolutely, I think so.

It’s not so easy.

“If At First You Don’t Succeed, Apply More Lipstick”

Apply more lipstick? Absolutely, Always and Forever.

Lipstick is the best feel-good there is. I am never entirely sure why a small tube filled with colour can delight in so many ways. It does.

Lipstick is one of the best aids I know for a broken heart, a bad mood or even sadness. Okay, even lipstick can’t cure a broken heart but it sure can make us feel better for a mini-moment.

Bronze, Bronzed And Bronzer: The How To

Bronze, Bronzed And Bronzer: The How To

Bronzer and I have a love/hate relationship.

It’s 50/50 whether we can make it out together.


Sometimes a dab or two of ‘sun kissed magic’ can do wonders and at other times, I can look as if I have had a mud bath. It’s a tough product to apply but when worn well, it is genius.


I don’t want the sun on my face, but I do if you see what I mean.

Forever Black And White

Forever Black And White


Black and white is forever.

Not only black and white beautiful images that stand the test of time, like these of French actress Jeanne Moreau, but in our fashion.


Black and white, together, alone or one on top of the other, is an easy one to get right.

Wearing black and white doesn’t require a whole lot of finesse or mind numbing decision making.

It is a foolproof combination.
