What’s in my… make-up bag


I am so looking forward to the 'What's in my… make-up bag' show as we're going to be showing you some ABSOLUTE MUST-HAVES!!!!
Sarah Chapman's skincare rangeSarah Chapman Discovery Collection

Firstly, let me tell you about Sarah Chapman! Her range of skincare is amongst the upper echelons of skincare society! She has the most intricate understanding of skin and quite frankly what she doesn’t know, isn’t worth knowing!… well, I take that back – I don’t think there is anything she doesn’t know about skin!

She is a complete perfectionist and her skincare range has been years in the making, following her immensely successful facial treatments in the salon. You can read Sarah's skincare tips on using her range in QGossip. 

She's booked up months in advance and, with her impressive celebrity client base, her following is huge. In fact, beauty magazine editors are clambering over each other to write about this range – seriously, you can’t get much better than this!

So, the Discovery Collection is a great kit and why would we have this in our make-up bag? Well, you just never know when your skin needs it and I’ve even been known to put the day cream on over my make-up just to pep up during the day! Her eye cream is arguably (ask any beauty editor) one of the best in the world – again, inches and inches of press are written about this! And finally the overnight facial – if you want to wake up with all boxes ticked – feeling plumped, soothed, hydrated and glowing – well slot this one in!!
If you pull this skincare range out of your handbag, people know that you know your stuff!!
Shavata precision tweezers Shavata's brow-shaping products

As for Shavata, well, in my humble opinion her tweezers are a girl’s Swiss army knife!! Not only are they incredible at doing what they're supposed to do, but they are one of the most used items in my make-up bag – from pulling out splinters, to model making, to fixing sunglasses / spectacle hinges!!! All sorts!!!
See you on Wednesday at midday with Sarah Chapman and Shavata as my guests…

Take care,

    Hiya Lexi – sorry for the delay on replying, I didn’t see your comment!! The colour is probably Leighton Denny’s Supermodel – a milky coffee colour??? His colours are wonderful! Pipa x

    Hi Pipa
    Can you tell me what you use on your hair. It always looks great. Have a similar hair style as yourself but I can never get the same texture look as you do.
