Skin & Base Prep

Skin Prep

It’s important to prep your skin well for flawless makeup. Gently exfoliate your skin to get rid of any dead skin cells and leave your skin feeling smooth and ready for makeup. Follow with a nourishing face cream to hydrate and soothe your skin. Lastly, add tanning drops to your base makeup to help you achieve a natural-looking glow.

Kate Somerville – ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment

A glossy skin needs to be smooth to reflect the light. After only one application, you will feel and see the difference, it’s incredible!

Murad – Intense Recovery Cream

If you have dry complexion like me this will feel heavenly on your skin. It’s a complete treat for your skin and a little goes a long way.

James Read – H2O Tan Drops Face

Quite simply, the easiest, most natural way, to create a sunless tan without any streaks at all.

Subtly Enhance

Subtly Enhance

The key to creating a natural, perfected look is to use makeup to enhance your unique and natural features. Whether you’re applying blush or highlighter, be sure to blend your makeup properly to help it appear as natural as possible.

KJH X Spectrum – KJH 2 Piece Face Brush Set

How wonderful to have Katie’s brushes in my beauty edit! Two fabulous crafted brushes to give your makeup application a professional edge.

Daniel Sandler – Watercolor Liquid Blush So Pretty

This cult product is a pro makeup artist kit essential. Sheer colour that enhances the skin seamlessly.

This beautiful creamy highlighter gives an instant illusion of a sheer hint of gleam to the skin, and most importantly, it doesn’t fade.

Max Factor – Colour Elixir Lipstick

If you follow me on social, you’ll know this is one of my favourite lipsticks due to the texture and colour. It suits everyone and never fails to cheer me up!

Define or Go Bold

Define and go bold

If you’re going for a bolder look, then this edit has you covered with a highly pigmented and long-lasting eyeliner, an eyeshadow palette to take you from day to night and an eye-catching liquid eyeshadow that stays put for hours.

Trish McEvoy – Intense Gel Eyeliner

There are many eyeliners on the market, but none as silky as this. When you try this you’ll never be in search of the perfect eye liner again!

Illamasqua – Elemental Artistry Palette

This is in my pro kit. The pigments, texture and colour spectrum in this palette are just divine and perfect for any modern eye look.
