My make-up routine and Canadian Ammolite


Canadian Ammolite jewellery is the order of the day with me this Thursday. This range is exceptional in the way it looks and in its historical story. I find it fascinating that there’s only one deposit of Ammolite in the world. They’re the result of prehistoric era marine animals which turned into fossils. Talk about rare!

I’m looking forward to trying some of the pieces on to show you, and hearing from our expert Ken Oschipok, direct from Canada, about how the stones are mined and created into tempting pieces. He doesn’t make it over that often to see us at QVC UK – so make sure you tune in at 2pm on Thursday 22nd for a real treat and a chance to buy jewellery that could be handed down as heirlooms.

Here’s a picture of one of my favourite pieces which is still in stock on our website right now:

MC earrings

I shot a little video for you last week – showing my make-up routine in my dressing room. Here’s a list of some of the products I use, day in, day out below so if you want to go and pick anything up, click the link and happy shopping!

PS It’s my wedding anniversary next week so Austen and I are heading back to our original ‘mini-moon’ destination of 4 years ago: Dublin! We wanted to get a direct injection of the craic, as it’s called! Pictures and updates on my Facebook page and I might even shoot you a video!

    Thanks Loraine – I did it ‘off the cuff’ as they say, so appreciate the feedback. Looking forward to a jaunt over to Dublin – it’s such an exciting city – lots to see and do, we won’t be able to fit it all in, of course – but we’ll try. Lots of love xxx

    Wish i could apply my makeup that fast! Only joking. You are a very pretty lady without makeup. Have a wonderful mini moon again in Dublin. I like the fact you are so honest.

    Hi Sue: thanks for your lovely feedback. I appreciate your comments! It was a bit scary showing my no make-up face to you and the rest of the world, but glad you enjoyed the final resultxxx

    Hey Lin, heee heee hee! I wish it was 3minutes, in all it’s about 15mins. I have it down pat but that comes from years of doing my own make-up for BBC regional TV news too. At Sky News we did have hair & make-up ladies though. Hope you can try some of the items I used, if you haven’t already? Xx cheers for coming by to say hello xxs

    Hey Liz Clark, you’re too kind *blushes*. There’s something about what good make-up does to make us all look like an improved version of ourselves. I feel I always look better (&feel better) with some make-up on. Lots of love xxx
