“The name of this product — Nars Illuminator in Hot Sand — just tells you everything you need to know about it. It’s the perfect colour for any time of the year, and it’s not too glittery, which I hate. When I found it, I felt like I had found gold – it kind of filled a space in my heart where something had been missing. I will wear illuminator and nothing else most days – it’s like the perfect cover-up, because it highlights all the good stuff and distracts you from noticing everything else. I have a big thing for illuminator in every form, but I usually prefer a liquid or stick.”
Nars Velvet Lip Pencils
“Lipstick is my weakness — I wear it all the time, and I have more tubes than my lips could ever handle, but I’ll never stop buying them. I have quite big eyes and bushy brows, so I avoid doing a full eye look. It’s just too much – so I guess that’s where the bold lip comes in. I’ve tried a lot of lipsticks, but Nars lip pencils (in satin and matte) are so good, and the colour range is perfection. Cruella and Hyde Park are cult for a reason.”
Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray
“This is pretty much the only styling product I use in my hair — I can’t really manage anything else. It’s the only thing I’ve ever used that holds a curl in my hair without leaving it weird and crunchy. I just spray it in after the shower, and that’s about the extent of what goes into my hair routine.”
Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil
“I have combination skin, so oils just work for me — even though I was terrified of them when I first started buying skincare. I love using rosehip in winter, but the entire Drunk Elephant range is so good. I’ve basically entered into a committed relationship with their Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil.”
Origins Drink Up 10 Minute Mask To Quench Skin's Thirst
“I’m so serious about masking – I spend hours on a Sunday with multiple masks on my skin. Multi-masking is the way of the future, and Origins makes some of the most effective (and best smelling) masks out there. I use the Drink Up 10 Minute Mask To Quench Skin’s Thirst on my cheeks (avoiding oily areas!), and usually use a clay one on my forehead and chin. I would recommend this mask just for the smell, but a little goes a long way, and if you have dehydrated skin, it’s genius.”
