Sneak peak into a makeup artist’s makeup bag.

This is the most frequently asked question I get as a makeup artist, “What’s inside your makeup bag?” Working in the makeup industry for over 6 years I have tried and tested a wide range of makeup brands on my clients and myself. So here it is… A select few of my makeup bag must haves!!!

MAC Cosmetics – Strobe Cream
The ultimate quick fix for my skin. This moisturiser brightens and gives tired skin a refreshed flawless glow. You can use this dream cream under makeup, on top of makeup or on bare skin. It has a lightweight texture and works wonders instantly leaving the skin looking and feeling fresh.

Rimmel London – Oh My Gloss
Who doesn’t love a glossy lip, with a lightweight formula and non sticky finish. Applying this gloss to bare lips or over your favourite lipstick is equally stunning. This lip gloss contains argan oil and vitamin E keeping the lips supple for up to 6 hours, my personal favourite shade has to be Glossaholic.

Nars – Radiant Creamy concealer
Anyone that knows me will know this creamy concealer is one of my all time favourites. If I could take only one item with me to a desert island, this for me would be it. Where do I start with this incredible product? It’s known for its luxurious texture and luminous finish, and it does just that. This product is hydrating and creamy and blends seamlessly with the use of your preferred makeup applicator, for me I use the MAC 133 Cosmetics brush to create flawless skin.

MAC cosmetics – Retro Matte Liquid Lip Colour
This kiss proof product has 8 hours wear with no bleeding, transfer or feathering. Which shade would you choose? For me it has to be the stunning red shade “Feel so grand” (Pictured Above). This liquid lipstick has a velvety smooth matte finish. The brilliantly designed applicator makes lip application quick and precise.

Laura Mercier -Translucent Loose Setting Powder
Being one of Laura Mercier’s best sellers this product feels silky and lightweight when applied. This loose powder keeps my skin looking soft and crease free with a modern matte finish. The wow factor for me about this product is it has a soft focus affect that blurs the look of fine lines and pores and doesn’t look cakey, for me this is a makeup bag must have for everyone!

Ardell Wispies: False Eyelashes
This false eyelash is lightweight with a full texture and a beautiful wispy finish. These falsies are almost undetectable when applied correctly and they blend incredibly well with your natural lashes. These unique handmade lashes are great value for money and can be worn for any occasion.

MAC Cosmetics: Studio Fix Fluid
Flawless skin in a bottle, be camera ready with this beautifully flawless full coverage foundation. This natural matte foundation has a medium to full buildable coverage, and it helps to minimise the appearance of imperfections and pores. Working long hours I need a product I can trust to last all day and maintain a flawless finish without any touchups. MAC is known worldwide for appealing to “all ages, all races and all sexes’’ this unique makeup brand really does have something for everyone. This product comes in such a wide range of skin tones you will be sure to find your perfect foundation shade.

Rimmel London: Supercurler Mascara
This 24 hour wearing mascara lasts all day with no smudging or flaking. The volumising formula gives the lashes a dramatic curl that lifts and boots each individual lash from the root. Rimmel London are calling it “a revolution in lash curling” This beauty must have is a mascara and lash curler in one.
