I’ve been wanting to do this post for a while and it’s the perfect rainy day for me to stay inside and play with my camera. When it comes to make up and hair products I prefer the easy natural look, and slowly over the last few months I’ve been introduced to products that really make a difference. Any time I’ve been on a magazine shoot I can’t quite believe the transformation before my eyes, that’s not to say it’s as easy to get the same look at home when all you have is one arm holding a hairbrush and the other a dryer, as apposed to a team all pulling your hairs different directions at the same time. Anyway here are some of the products that actually do work at home for me.
For the hair: I’m loving this seaweed shampoo from Bumble and bumble (I have the conditioner too but it’s not as thick and creamy as their other ones), so instead I’ve been using this new Phil Smith conditioning hair mask every few washes. After I use the Bumble and bumble prep spray followed by Moroccan Oil. I am totally obsessed with the Moroccan Oil! I know I’m a bit late on this but glad I made the party eventually, so much better than any other hair oil product I’ve used and I love the glossy feeling afterwards.
For the face: I’ve had the Clinique eyes serum for a while but really started using it around fashion week; the cold ball feels so good under your eyes and really helps to wake you up. Bobby Browns corrector is amazing for under your eyes, I’m always paranoid about looking tired and this is another beauty secret I learned from a make up artist on set, then I always top up with YSL’s Touche Eclat (told you I was paranoid). For the mascara I love MaxFactor, they have the perfect brush size and always make my eyelashes look longer. The Calvin Klein eyeshadow base I’ve just been using on it’s own, it’s got a great creamy texture that doesn’t turn into lines on your eyelid after a days wear; it’s just a few shades darker than my skin tone so it’s quite subtle. The Laura Mercier eye powder duo is another new product I can’t live without; I’ve got it in Deep Blonde and you use the lighter powder for the inside of your brow and the darker one as you brush out. The high beam from Benefit is great for a healthy glow, I just put a little on my cheekbones and on the inside of the eye to brighten up my face.
I’d love to hear of any products that you guys can’t live without!
