Couture & Crumpets – Q&A

Daniela from Couture & Crumpets brings us a world filled with lifestyle, beauty and fashion that we adore. With a range of her top picks quickly selling out on Lookfantastic, we wanted to know a little bit more about the blogger herself.

Couture & Crumpets

1.       How long have you been blogging/ writing?

Both the blog and my freelance career are three years old this year.

2.       What are your beauty essentials?

This could be tricky…I love Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir and Divine Oil, REN face masks and Institut Estederm for skincare. I love Rodial’s body products – the Brazilian tan smells amazing and looks great, and I love Laura Mercier’s dessert-themed body butters. Make-up wise, I’ve worn Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua for years, and I’m never without a strong brow and some black liner.

3.       What is your favourite new skin care product?

Definitely the Clarisonic Mia 2 – my skin doesn’t feel clean without it!

4.       What is your favourite new make-up product?

I love the Laura Mercier Radiant primer – it grips make up perfectly and makes the skin incredibly dewy.

5.       What products would you suggest for people with dry skin?

Dry skin needs gentle cleansing and great moisture – at night the Rodial Dragon’s Blood Mask, followed by Trilogy’s Rosehip Oil will moisturise the skin and give a subtle glow for the next day. The Rodial Dragon’s Blood moisturiser in the morning is the perfect day cream for dry skin, and doesn’t make make-up roll or clump.

6.       What are your beauty trends of 2013?

Pink lips and big brows!

7.       What did you want to do when you grow up?

Always a journalist – I think I wanted to be Lois Lane…
