- So, tell us about your holy grails?
There are so many beauty products that I just cannot imagine swapping for anything else. I’ve used the L’Oréal Superliner for years and I’m still obsessed with it to this day. If you’re looking for an eyeliner that will stay on all day, I 100% recommend this. A long-time favourite is the Collection Perfection Concealer. It’s an oldie, but a goodie – one of the best concealers I’ve ever used, and considering it’s so reasonably priced, you can’t go wrong! Recently, Also, I have been loving Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in shade ‘Lolita 2’. The colour is wearable for most occasions, and I find the formula stays on all day; something I’ve struggled to find in a lipstick!
- You are heading to a desert island and can only pack 5 cosmetics: go!
The top five products I could not live without have to be the Collection Perfection Concealer, Hoola by Benefit, Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara, Bodyshop Drops of Youth Sleeping Mask, and the Urban Decay Afterglow Palette. For me, all of these products have survived the test of time and nothing compares.
- Skincare routines are so popular these days, tell us about yours?
When it comes to skincare, the main things I do are in the evening before bed. I use a face wash, at the moment I am loving Nivea’s Gentle Exfoliating Face Scrub. I then apply an eye roll, such as Simple’s Kind To Eyes Revitalising Eye Roll On (this helps me avoid dark circles for the next morning). I will then finish with an overnight moisturiser. My must-have for this is The Body Shop’s Drops Of Youth!
- Got any beauty hacks?
At the moment, I’m obsessed with using silver colour correcting shampoos. The formulas are perfect for neutralising yellow/blonde tones and maintaining that silver look. I’m also a big fan of colour correcting concealers – specifically using green shades to cover up any redness and minimise dark circles. For me personally, I’ve found these types of products to be really effective.
- Any products you wouldn’t recommend?
There hasn’t been many I’ve disliked when it comes to experimenting with new products. However, I wouldn’t personally recommend Rimmel’s Scandaleyes Mascara. I found it made my eyelashes stick together, opposed to making them look defined.
- This or That?
Full Glam or Natural? Full Glam! There’s nothing I love more than getting dolled up for an evening – given the rare opportunity I get to do so, that is.
Moisturiser or Primer? Moisturiser. This is an absolute necessity for making my foundation stay in place for the whole day.
Foundation or Concealer? Concealer. On my lazy makeup days concealer is my go-to product.
Eyeliner or Mascara? Mascara. Whilst I am a sucker for the winged eyeliner look, mascara is something I use on the daily.
Bronzer or Highlighter? Highlighter!
Lipstick or Lipgloss? Lipstick. I’m not a fan of gloss because of how sticky it can feel. I much prefer a lipstick, usually with a matte finish.
- Who is you biggest beauty influence?
I’m a big fan of watching beauty video’s on YouTube for how-to tutorials and inspiration concerning popular products. Shaaanxo is someone I really like; she invents really pretty makeup looks for all occasions.
- Got your eye on anything special?
I saw someone use the Magnificent Metals Eyeshadow by Stila in a YouTube video a while ago. It looks incredible, I can’t wait to give it a try!
