As a businesswoman and a mother, I need a lot from my beauty products. I prefer faff-free application and long-lasting formulas. I need to know that my makeup will be as perfect at 6pm as it was when I applied it at 6am. Below are my everyday essentials:
I don’t get out in the sun much and I believe in protecting my skin, so Bare by Vogue is my new go-to tan to give me glowing skin. It glides on, dries fast, leaves no streaks and is cruelty-free and suitable for vegans. It ticks all the boxes!
During stressful times and with the changing seasons, my skin can get so dehydrated. I’ve started using the Pestle & Mortar Hyaluronic Serum and my skin looks and feels plumper, smoother and firmer. Another product that I love using and feels amazing on my skin is the Carter Beauty Hold Tight Perfecting Primer. I have only started using this and will never go without it. It keeps my makeup on all day and it’s a fantastic price point!
I love Benefit so its no surprise that two of their products are in my group of everyday essentials. Their products are perfect for women who don’t have loads of time to spend on their makeup. The Hoola Matte Bronzer is a cult beauty product for a reason as it gives soft light to the face and a sunny, natural complexion. My other favourite Benefit product is the Brow Contour Pro because when it comes to brow products, Benefit is the only answer. This product does it all – highlights under the brow, creates clean and natural looking brows and defines arches. It’s like having 15 products in one!
My number one foundation is the Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation. I can apply it in the morning, go to a million meetings, events and have a full day’s work and it’s as perfect in the evening. Another product that does not budge is the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lips in ‘Fiery.’ I’ve always been a red lip girl and I feel a strong lip looks and feels confident. This is the only red lip I use now because its doesn’t budge and it even stays in place after kisses! You can try it and thank me later. My last favourite product is the Lancome Hypnose Volume Mascara because it strokes on easily and quickly without clumping, smudging or making its way onto your cheeks throughout the day. It’s not too hard on the lashes and gives a great false lash effect to those who don’t have time for false lashes.
These products are my everyday essentials and I can’t leave home without them! A huge congratulations to all of the winners in this year’s IMAGE Beauty Awards.
