Must-have beauty item: Guerlain Terracotta The Bronzing Powder

“This is not just a secret for brunettes!!  The Guerlain Terracotta bronzer is my go-to beauty secret and has been a staple in my kit for years and a firm favourite with my celebrity clients! It’s sunshine in a compact and gives long-lasting results rain or shine! An instant pick-me-up bronzer, it’s super sheer, extremely hydrating, smells divine and has a velvety satin semi-matt finish, plus its neutral golden olive hues means no orange muddy streaks, it just looks like healthy glowing second skin.”

“I use it all over the face and body and it comes with a perfect travel size kabuki brush, which can be swept across the eyes lids and used as a shadow, or to warm up and perfect the  dullest of complexions, it creates a perfect, airbrushed sun-kissed glow day or night!”



Benefit-Precisely-My-Brow-PencilLisa Potter-Dixon - Signature

Must-have beauty item: Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil

‘‘Whenever I’m doing makeup, the first thing I start with is brows. Eyebrows completely balance the face and by doing them first, you’re setting a framework for the look you are about to create. My fave brow product has to be Precisely My Brow Pencil. The ultra-fine tip helps you create believable hair-like strokes, giving you natural looking, defined brows.”



Givenchy-Le-Rouge-PerfectoLucy Hanagan - Signature

Must-have beauty item: Givenchy Le Rouge Perfecto

“I’m in love with Givenchy Le Rouge Perfecto because I feel like it brings a touch of Couture to my beauty regime! It’s the perfect nude! I’m so obsessed with it that I have 3- one for my kit, one on my dresser and one in my handbag! It’s such a luxurious plumping balm.”

“Not only does it Moisturise your lips, but it reacts to the PH of your skin to give you a rosy colour unique to you, that feels as delicate as lace. The packaging is divine- a light pink genuine leather case makes it the quintessential beauty accessory.”



Givenchy-Teint-Couture-Balm-FoundationNic Haste - Signature

Must-have beauty item: Givenchy Teint Couture Balm Foundation

“One of my top make up products that I can’t live without is the Givenchy Teint couture balm. I have only recently found this foundation and I’m in love with it. It one of the only foundation that makes your skin look exactly like your skin but better. It’s not too shiny and not too Matte it’s practically perfect. The pay off is slightly lighter than a normal foundation but more than a BB, CC or tint.”



Clarins-Instant-ConcealerZoe Newlove - Signature

Must-have beauty item: Clarins Instant Concealer

“I cannot live without Clarins Instant Concealer in my kit (and personal make-up bag) as it is the most amazing brightening concealer, with great coverage – except it does not feel heavy on the skin or sink into any lines. I always use these to cover dark circles and due to the peachy undertone it cancels out the darkness perfectly.”



MAKE-UP-FOR-EVER-Ultra-HD-Microfinishing-Loose-PowderAdriana-Brito-MAKE UP FOR EVER-Signature

Must-have beauty item: MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Microfinishing Loose Powder

“I love the Ultra HD Loose Powder because it works on every skin type – even dry skin –  blurring out fine lines and pores creating a beautiful soft focus effect. Not only does it look great in person but it translates beautifully on camera as well!”
