Ah, I don't mind rosy cheeks sometimes. I wouldn't die of shame if I left the house without make up on, I just feel better with it.
Ha, I've just googled Joan Collins! She looks fab, no I look nothing like her.

I normally never wear foundation until I came across Dior AirFlash. Its a foundation in a spray can!!! You shake it up spray evenly across your face and just rub it in slightly - with liquid foundations I always end up with an Oh So Sexy tide mark round the chin where I cant blend it in properly!! But the dior was go on so smooth its like a second skin.
I hope I can get it when I get to Oz if not I'll be stocking up before I leave.
Best eye liner I use is from Boots Natural Collection its £2 and is fab!

Also Becca is a lovely Australian brand, stupidly expensive in the UK but more reasonable in Oz. And Dove have a much bigger range of skincare available in Oz than over here. My fave moisturiser is one of theirs, has an SPF, is lovely and light and costs about $15!

Apparently (according to my US makeup mates) Napolean Perdis is in bother in the US as it’s been revealed that his brand is actually a really cheap drugstore brand which he has simple re-labelled and bumped up the price!

Yeah there will be stuff you miss no doubt. Ruby and Millie (sob sob). Don't have Urban Decay here (that I've seen) but you can get MAC. Gemma Kidd is now here too. Plus KIT, have you heard of that? I've not used Becca or the Dove moisturiser (apart from the fake tan one), will have to check those out.

There is a great store for the more boutiquey hard to get brands in Aus, like Stila and Nars, called MeccaCosmetica: http://www.meccacosmetica.com.au/brands.aspx

That's interesting about Napoleon. Are you in the industry?

Doesn't she! If I look like Joan Collins when I get to her age I would not be complaining! She always looks well turned out and classy. A bit too much slap sometimes, but hey, no one's perfect!

I don't actually like MAC, Gemma Kidd or Ruby & Millie so I'm not bothered about any of those! But Urban Decay make the best eyeshadow primer in the world and I cannot live without it. Looks like I'll be calling on my chums to post it over!

I was actually in a Mecca store in Melbourne! I thought it was so funny that my mecca was actually called Mecca that I took a picture of it..haha!

nope, not in the industry, just obsessed...

I dont wear makeup - well occasionally mascara but thats it.

I have tried countless creams for my face - anti wrinkle ones always dry my skin out, nothing makes a difference.

What I have found that since I have been in Perth, I have been buying factor 30 suncream from the local shop (Price attack I think its called) and my skin has never been so clear or felt so soft.

I look healthy but not tanned and it really does protect my skin, I remove it at night using a facial wash and don't wear anything at night to give my skin a rest.

Whether or not I should still be looking for the perfect face cream I don't know but for now I am content with having clear skin as in England I always reacted in some way to a cream.

I dont know how suncream is helping my face, perhaps by its UV protection - I don't know but its working for now.

Its scary trying out new creams - I dont normally react straight away, it takes a few goes and it can work out expensive.

I was beginning to think I was the only one who didn't wear make up!

I'll be 30 next year so maybe in another 5-10 years I might change my mind

I don't wear any make-up either! If I go out I might put some mascara one, but that's it, and never wear any in the day.

I thought maybe it was just me!

I have been called lazy for not wearing makeup.

Mascara/eyeliner if I look really rough but otherwise nope, its not for me.
