Jane Fardon, a founder of True Colours Image Consultancy, lives in Broomhill and has her own cosmetics company. She reveals her best and worst beauty buys:
HIT: WHITE HOT HAIR PRODUCTS, FROM £12, BOOTS
I love the idea of celebrating grey hair. I went grey very young and know it needs specialist care. I love White Hot Hair products. The £12 conditioner is rich but not heavy and the shampoo, also £12, has a ‘brightener’ in it that lifts grey or white hair, which can go dull easily. There’s also a hair mousse, called Shooshing crème. You can also buy them at www.whitehothair.co.uk
MISS: PEARL DROPS EVERYDAY WHITENING TOOTHPASTE, £4.85, BOOTS
It made no difference. My teeth didn’t look any whiter either. The polish is a very expensive alternative to normal toothpaste and, to my mind, is a total waste of money. I tried the Hollywood Smile version and in my opinion, that didn’t work either. I will not be buying them again.
CLINIQUE ALL ABOUT SHADOW QUAD, £28, DEBENHAMS
This set is good value for money. All four shades of the Jenna’s Essentials set, ranging from a matt cream to deep grey, are immensely useful. I smudge the darkest shades on as eyeliner. But even better, the powders are made to a new formula which feels creamy on the skin, makes lids look smoother and stays put from morn ‘til bedtime. Colours are highly-pigmented, so you need only one, single stroke.
