The Highlighter

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter. This delivers a polished amount of “glow” to a made-up face but doesn’t achieve it with the metallic effect some highlighters give, or the gritty sparkle of powder illuminators.

The Bronzer

Make Bronzing Brick in “Joshua Tree” – This baked, powder formulation contains no unnatural sparkle or shimmer & glides onto the skin beautifully, this slightly pinkier tone looks more natural on fair to medium skin tones and doesn’t give the dreaded “orange” effect.

The Lipgloss

MAC Clear Lipglass – The vinyl-effect lipgloss; super high shine that photographs like nothing else.

The Mascara

Lancôme “Volume-a-Porter” – This mascara doesn’t become brittle as it dries, so lashes stay malleable, allowing you to really build the amount of volume & definition you prefer with as many layers as you like.

The Red Lipstick

MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in “Ruby Woo”. Although not for the faint-hearted, I’ve never come across a skin tone that this colour doesn’t work on. If it doesn’t look good on you, you just don’t have enough on.

The Liner

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner – the original pot gel liner, this formula allows you a little “playtime” to craft your shape before it sets fast, & is far less tricky to use than wetter liquid liners.
