Do you ever look in your wardrobe, that is stuffed full of clothes, and think that you have nothing to wear? Why is that? 
 
Have you got stuff that you are hanging onto that no longer fits? Or did it not fit in the first place? You bought it thinking it would be perfect when you'd lost a few pounds...but you never did. 
 
Are you a hoarder? Do you think that you'll hang on to stuff because it has good memories. Or because you just love it even though you don't wear it and more. Was it expensive? Do you think it might be worth something if you ever got round to sticking it to eBay. Are you thinking it might come back in fashion one day?Are you a repeat buyer? Do you have lots of pairs of black trousers for example? Or 18 black dresses (you know who you are)? Or a penchant for white shirts? Or, like one of my clients, if you really like something buy it in several sizes just in case your weight changes. 
 
Do you love a bargain? Is your wardrobe full of clothes that still have tags on, bought in the sale. Stuff you wouldn't have ever looked at it was full price, but it was such a good bargain you just had to have it. Or are you a charity shop shopper with the "I'll get it because it is only a few quid mentally". 
It's said that we wear 20% of our clothes 80% of the time. I think that is probably true for most of us.

Do you know which colours to wear that will accentuate your eyes and enhance your natural colouring?.A top tip is to echo your eye colour in your make up if you want to be sure the colours suit you... 
 
How do I choose foundation? 
 
There are so many different types of foundation to choose from where do you start? 
 
3 Main Things to consider: 
 
1) Price - how much are you prepared to pay? 
 
This will determine where you start your search and the brands you might look at. E.G if you don't want to spend more than £15 there is no point going to the 'scary lady' counters. Also, bear in mind however helpful the sales assistants are their job is to SELL. They are probably going to recommend all kinds of complementary products that you 'need' to make your foundation last longer, appear smoother etc. These things might be nice to haves but aren't essential. 
 
2) Coverage - light or heavy? Matte or dewy? 
 
Try a tiny bit of tester on the back of your hand and see how it covers your skin. How smoothly does it glide? As a generally rule the heavier coverage foundations don't glide as smoothly as the lighter ones and will have more 'stickability'. Check the finish in the light to see if the finish is matte or dewy - dewy will generally appear a lighter finish. Does it need a powder to set it? This is adding another step into your routine.
