A couple of people have emailed me asking as a makeup artist which products I use on myself... 
Here you go lovers...

1. MAC Face & Body foundation 
I swear by this, it's incredible.

2. Nars Bronzer in Laguna
This is my all time favourite bronzer - blends beautifully & gives the most perfect non-orange glow.

3. MAC Strobe Cream
Perfect under foundation gives a beautiful light reflecting dewy look. Also dab a bit on your cupids bow for plump fuller looking lips.

 4. MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural 
My daytime powder - Light coverage, sets foundation & gets rid of shine but still keeps a healthy natural glow.

5. MAC Studio Fix Powder
My evening powder - My saviour. Perfect even coverage, gets rid of any shine & will keep your makeup in place until the AM's!  Oh, & use the sponge that comes with it not a brush for this baby's best results.

6. MAC Duo Fibre Brush
The best multi-purpose brush out there! Foundation, Blusher, Powder, Buffing & Bronzer.

7. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser
The best one on the market in my opinion (Athough Bobbi Brown is also lovely) - great for light daytime coverage if you can't be bothered with foundation & need a quick get up and go.

8.YSL Singulier Mascara
I've tried, thrown away & tried again a bazillion mascaras - & finally YSL brought out this baby.
It's incredible.

9. Benefit Brow Zings
Yes, I do fill in my eyebrows - What can i say? Dark thicker eyebrows & blonde hair are a total YES.
Plus I really think eyebrows are far more important than you'd think - they really frame the face.
Brow zings is great & makes it hella easy. Plus, gives the most natural look.
Get your brow zings & get filling!

10. Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers

11. MAC Lipstick in Hue, Morange & Ruby Woo
My three faves at the moment - Hue gives a natural nude lip a la Olsen. Morange is a new discovery thanks to one of my gorgeous bestie's Rosie, perfect orange for summer! Ruby Woo is by far the most perfect matt red ever. The end.

12. Nars Multiple in Copacabana
The perfect highlighter. I also love palm beach, which is a perfect bronze highlighter for holiday but couldn't find a piccie.

13. Carmex
Need I say anymore.

14. MAC Eyeshadow in Mulch
Perfect for that smoky coppery brown Olsen eye. A firm favourite.

15. MAC Cremeblush in Ladyblush
This is the best cream blusher if you want a subtle colour but want to keep your look dewy.

16. Nars eyeshadow in Nightbreed
The best black eyeshadow ever, ask any artist. So many uses - a firm favourite with me for lining the top lid & smoky eyes.

17. Chloe Eau De Parfum
My favourite perfume - I don't think i'll ever bore of using it.

18. Benefit Bad Gal Eyeliner
This is just such a good eyeliner - it's soft, blacker than black & blends like a charm.


  1. everytime i smell chloe i think of my mama. she is effortlessly chic and no one wears it anymore. such a great scent.

  2. Benefit Brow Zing is the best eyebrow filler ever!
