Make up Essentials

I’m often being asked what makeup products I use.  Here are some of my favourite products that I use from day to day.

1. Primer
I use a Laura Mercier to firstly prime the skin. This helps to keep foundation in place. I also apply glossier lip balm to my lips and under my eyes as a primer.

2. Foundation
The Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover with an SPF really helps not only protect the skin, but gives ultimate coverage. Its not for everyone, but I have always used this as a base. I then apply Kevin Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer in just the highlight areas of my face. You only need a tiny amount. Then blend. I then apply a small amount of Ellis Faas Foundation and blend this in.

3. Concealer
I use the Laura Mercier concealer just under the eyes. The have the best concealers as they are moisturising for the eyes and give the best cover.

4. Finishing Powder
Mac Studio Fix Powder  is then applied all over to hold the foundation.

5. Bronzer
I apply the Giorgio Armani Bronzer to just under my cheek bones and then all around my face to give a slight bronze glow.

6. Eyeliner
I then apply the Chanel Longwear Intense Cream Eyeliner in Hyperblack. This is a new product and possibly one of the best eyeliner’s I have ever used. However you need a good makeup remover to take it off the next day.

7. Mascarra
Finish off the eyes using Givenchy mascara that will lengthen and add volumize your lashes.

8. Lipstick
Apply Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick to finish off. These lipsticks are very light and are not full cover at all like you would normally have with a lipstick.
