What’s in my make-up bag…


I so often get emails about my make-up that I figured it might be fun to every now and then take a look into my make up bag and tell you what I'm using that week.

I have to be honest, as I hide my head in shame (not really), that I’m not faithful!! I'm ALWAYS flitting between brands, changing and discovering new things, new colours, new textures  - it doesn’t make the old ones rubbish, it just means I like to keep my make-up fresh and play with new things. We're so lucky that we have so many excellent brands at QVC that I can do exactly that!!
So, my make-up at the moment is generally:

  1. Mario De Luigi Lift Up Foundation or Smashbox Halo Glow Powder this one is amazing as it offers coverage and hydration. I need to go a shade down now though as the ol’ tan is fading!!
  2. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick to highlight
  3. Laura Geller Pink Grapefruit
  4. Bad Gal Lash from Benefit
  5. Buxom Lips from Bare Minerals - the copper colour is AWESOME!!!!
  6. Oh and one of my all time favourites are the Sue Devitt chunky pencils - I use them every day, I think I own them in every colour!
  7. And finally, the amazing red on my eyes from the bellápierre TSV a few weeks back.

    … will have a rummage again soon!! Pipa x

    Hi Pipa: I’ve written before with this question, but can you tell me what nail polish you wear (I’ve seen it on you several times) that is a pinky brown colour? The last time I saw it on you was when you did the latest programs with Stacey from ybf and you were wearing a short-sleeve purple top. Dying to know if it is something that QVC carries. Would really appreciate the info. Susan

    Hi Pipa, I’ve got a nail polish question too! What is that lovely avocado green colour you’re wearing right now? I’ve just watched you the last hour – Friday, 11am -12 noon – and I love it! Linda

    Hiya Susan – I get asked this one all the time so many apologies that you didn’t get an answer yet!! It is either Supermodel by Leighton Denny or Over The Taupe by OPI. Supermodel is such hot property, none of us can find it at the moment, however, I do know that Leighton is launching his Autumn colours on October 1st at QVC and in that collection will be the new and improved Supermodel with a slight pink shimmer shot through it – I imagine it will be stunning!!
