My Top 5 Favourite Makeup Products

Here are my top 5 go to makeup products as a makeup artist and in my personal makeup bag – Enjoy!

 

1) MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation
I have loved this foundation since I bought my very first bottle, years before I became a make up artist! I continue to add various foundations to my collection but I personally always come back to the Studio Fix Fluid Foundation. I suffer from oily skin and this foundation keeps my skin from becoming like a disco ball through the day. I apply thinly with a stippling brush for a natural looking flawless base before any make up look I’m going for!

2) MAC ‘Feline’ Kohl Pencil
Now working for MAC during my career my top 5 may be a little MAC biased but trust me when I say, if you like kohl liners you will fall in love with this one! Feline is the blackest of black with a super easy glide. Perfect for quick smokey eye!

3) Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate
Right at the beginning of my career, a make up artist I was assisting had this in her kit, the gorgeous packaging first caught my eye and then I witnessed something special – the power of a contour and highlight! This comes in two shades however I only carry the one in my kit and add more to deepen the contour. The highlighter is also good for all skin shades and leaves a realistic dewy texture to the skin. Love!

4) MAC ‘Kinda Sexy’ Lipstick
I am a fan of a lot of MAC’s lipsticks but this has to be my most used shade. It is a gorgeous peachy pink colour, matt in texture but not so that it looks dry on the lips. Beautiful on its own or teamed with a touch of gloss. This is my go to for the perfect nude lipstick.

5) Anastasia Beverley Hills Dipbrow Pomade
Anyone who knows me or my make up will know I love a brow! This is a great product to achieve a fluffy and natural brow to a strong defined shape. Comes in lots of shades to suit all hair/skin types, I especially recommend the lighter shades for blondes who are wondering how they will ever find the perfect brow product!
