Beauty writer, Jane Cunningham has blogged as British Beauty Blogger for six years as well as writing regularly for print. Her reputation for straight talking, no nonsense reviews and first beauty news has made Britishbeautyblogger.com one of the most respected and popular beauty blogs in the UK.

I wanted to say if a product was rubbish and not just discretely ‘not mention it’.. I just felt consumers had a right to know if they were throwing their money away.

Jane's main interest is make-up - she is an avid collector of limited editions - but her knowledge sits across the board on hair care, skin care, fragrance and treatments, including non-surgical treatments such as fillers or botox.

Post your skincare, beauty and hair care questions for Jane below by midday on May 8th

And when we are irrisistable the nice glamma photographers could take lovely pics - no need for soft-focus!

River , I think I just might need a tad of soft focus, this lily takes a little longer to gild !!
Laugh !!

Oh yes. It's all within reach now. grin

Never mind soft focus. It's air-brushing for me. grin

Photoshop! grin - but I'm quite happy at the moment product wise having won the Boots hamper from the serum test earlier this year smile.

My one question would be related to mascara. I wear it less often these days, but one thing I hate is what husband calls "spider eyes" where mascara is caked on so thickly that it looks out of whack with the rest of the aged face. What is a good, non-waterproof mascara that removes easily and is contact lens friendly please?

Apart from the fact that my lashes are much shorter than they once were and rather sparse, how could I cope with mascara when I can't see to put it on with my glasses off and can't put it on with my glasses in the way? The answer is that I don't.

I've never worn much make up. I didn't like the heaviness of it on my face. I stuck to mascara and a bit of lip gloss. I've now done away with those. Lip salve is all I use. My face is quite wind-blown and slightly tanned from all the walking I do, even though I slap factor 50 on it. I do use a good thick face cream which is slightly scented, and although it works well, my skin is now sensitive to it. Suggestions please.

My lips have disappearedshock…is there anyway I can persuade them to come back?

Do you recommend mineral cosmetics over the other types available nowadays? Also which concealers would be better for older skin types?
