Winter is well and truly here, and we can’t help but feel a little drab in this cold weather. To make us feel a bit more glam this season, we’ve turned to QVC’s ambassador Ruth Langsford for her must-have beauty tips.
Help us Ruth! Our skin has been feeling so dry since the summer ended. Any advice?
I find skin does start to dehydrate in the winter months, particularly when you’ve got the central heating on as well. So I look at using more moisturising facial creams, and more face masks.
Any favourites you could share with us Ruth?
The lovely Alison Young recommended the Gatineau Professional Moisturising Cream Mask, with instructions to apply lavishly to my face, neck and decollete, leave to absorb for 10 – 15 minutes, then massage any remaining product into skin.
Alison Young is always great for beauty recommendations. We love Gatineau too for helping to give our skin a boost, as well as Jane Scrivner’s Masquerade. These masks all work to create a more hydrated-looking complexion while helping to leave your skin with a lit-from-within glow. Like Ruth, we’ll definitely be adding more masks into our skincare routine this season.
Now we’ve got our skincare sorted, have you get any other tips to help us feel a bit more fabulous?
I don’t consider myself glamorous unless I’ve been made up by make-up artists, had my hair done and am off to some big red-carpet event. I would never describe myself as glamorous in my everyday life. But I do love it!
We certainly think you’re glamorous Ruth. Outside of work, how do you bring a little bit of glamour to every day?
Glamour to me is dressing up! I think Hollywood, coiffured hair, diamonds, flawless make-up and a beautiful frock. But glamour can mean different things to different people, it can sometimes mean just putting on a bit of red lipstick when you’re on the school run.
Ruth’s right, a slight change in your make-up can instantly transform how you feel. Even applying a slick of lipstick can make you feel a bit more glammed up.
We always keep an It Cosmetics Blurred Lines Smooth-Fill Anti-Ageing Lipstick in our make-up bag. This collection features three flattering shades so you can change up your look to suit your mood. If you prefer something sheer on the lips, you can’t go wrong with Gale Hayman. The So Hollywood Lip Lift Tint collection offers four shades of the classic Lip Lift formula that leave your lips with a soft tint while working to create a hydrated and plump appearance.
With our newly hydrated complexions and a perfect pout, we’re definitely feeling brighter. Thanks for your help Ruth. Don’t forget to add some gorgeous style to your wardrobe to finish your refreshed look. Check out Ruth’s Edit as well as her stylish fashion range for more inspiration.
