Every Summer I spend in America, I always save some money for my very last week so I can pop into Sephora and stock up on my makeup for the year! This year was no exception and I may have even done more damage than ever before. Like a typical girl, I really do love my makeup and nothing makes me more excited than finding a new product to use. Because lets face it, we do not all wake up looking like Beyonce!

Face: At the moment I have two go to foundations, Chanel Vita Lumiere which is a wonderful water based lightweight foundation that gives great coverage without looking too cakey. I also love the l’Oreal Nude Magique foundation which has the strangest texture ever, when you pour it into your hand it moves like water but on your face give a gorgeous matt finish. After years of looking for nice makeup brushes I finally found the best out there, the Real Technique brushes are so nice and soft without breaking the bank!
When modelling in fashion shows, I often get my makeup done by lots of talented makeup artists and one of my favourite tips that I’ve learned is how to use Bronzer and Shimmer products to help give me some type of cheek bones! My favourite thing in my makeup bag is my Nars Orgasm/Laguna duo which make the best bronzer and blush on the market! I use the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose for a little shimmer to make me sparkle!
Eyes: We all know how important brows are to frame our faces, Anastasia is known as the Brow Expert in America and her line of products are specifically tailored for brows. Her Brow Duo is great for combining colours to find the perfect shade for your brows without getting that cringey “scouse brow”. My all time favourite eye shadow is Sketch by Mac which is the prettiest colour to use when creating a smokey eye that is a little different from the usual blacks and greys. Of course we all know Benefits best selling “They’re Real” mascara that really gives you luscious lashes but have you tried their new eyeliner? It’s great for defining those eyes and helping you look bright eyed even after a long night out on the town!
Lips: As for the lips my one and only love is Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Rose. Its perfect for saving those lips in the freezing cold Winter and protecting them from the sun in the Summer months with its SPF protection. I am beyond obsessed!
I would love to hear about your favourite makeup products too if you have anything fun to tell me about!
