Autumn Make-up must haves – Semichem

When I think of Semichem I think; bargain shampoo, hairspray, good value suntan lotion and St Moriz fake tan. I don’t or rather didn’t think; staple skin care products or make-up must haves. Yes we would all love to treat ourselves to high end make up brands on a regular basis but sometimes circumstances don’t allow and even if they do, nothing quite beats the buzz of finding that little bargain product. Semichem have bargain products a plenty! As the nights draw closer and rain begins to fall new season make-up trends start to creep in. This year we welcome berry tones and pastel shades creating a brilliant light and dark contrast.
