Saie Beauty Slip Tint, £27

“I love the look of real skin and keeping things soft and natural, so I usually opt for lighter coverage and tinted moisturisers. One of my favourites is Ilia’s Super Serum Skin Tint. I love multi-tasking products and this one acts like skincare, with light, dewy coverage and SPF protection. For a bit more glow, the SAIE Beauty Slip Tint is one of my favourite finds. It’s so luminous.”Available At

Rouje L’Eyeliner, €19

“Eyeliner is definitely ‘my thing’. I’ve tried so many but the perfect formula comes courtesy of Rouje. It’s unbelievably easy to use, with a flexible tip that delivers a neat, thin line every time. If you prefer using eyeshadow to line your eyes, try the Jones Road one in Sparkle Wash – it is so buildable and never creases.

Ilia Limitless Lash Mascara, $28

“This is the one mascara I always go back to. The effect is natural, but seriously lengthening. Plus, it uses nourishing ingredients to keep brittleness at bay. Better still, you can wash it away with warm water, but it never ever flakes off during the day. It’s the best.”

YSL Touche Éclat High Coverage Concealer, £27  

"This is a cult classic for good reason and a firm favourite of mine – I’ve used it for years. The finish is always smooth and crease-free. Use just a tiny amount to immediately brighten up those dark circles. Since I’ve had two children, I need something to fake that wide-awake look – this always delivers.”Available At

Fenty Liquid Killawatt Fluid Freestyle Highlighter, £24 

“I swear by this highlighter. It’s so glow-y and contains some incredible skin-loving ingredients, too. The level of shimmer is perfect.”

Millie Make-Up Bag, Prices On Order 

“I store all of my essentials in my handmade Millie make-up bag. They are so pretty, great quality and they wear well. Plus, you can fit so much in them without it feeling fit to burst. You have to direct message the brand on Instagram to order one, but it’s worth the wait.”Available At @MillieTheBrand

Rose Inc Blush Divine Radiant Lip & Cheek Colour, £23

“Blusher is something I can’t be without. It’s hard to choose a favourite as I have a few, but this one certainly stands out. It’s very long-wearing, unlike some creams, and better still, it blends so well.” 

Available At

Patrick Ta Major Brow Lamination Gel, £22

“A tip from me is to apply any brow product onto wet brows for a glossier finish. They shape the hairs better and stay in place longer – trust me. My favourite product is this one from Patrick Ta. It really holds the brow hairs in place with that laminated effect that’s so on-trend. I then like to layer Glossier’s Boy Brow over top.” Available At

Make Hibernation Capsule Overnight Recovery Balm, $38

“In the winter, my beauty routine changes. I like to use thicker, more nourishing overnight face masks and my current favourite is Make’s Hibernation Capsule. You have to pay for the shipping, but it’s worth it. A balm that sinks in overnight, it’s great for nourishing and revitalising thirsty skin.”Available At

Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil & Mask, £45

“I’ve always paid extra attention to my hair and use masks on it often. Every Sunday, it’s a ritual to mix these two products together and apply them to dry hair. I’ll leave both on all day, then wash them off at night. Both are good for taming frizz and creating slick ponytails.”Available At

Emma Lewisham Illuminating Oil Cleanser, £46 & Summer Fridays Super Amino Gel Cleanser, £34

“Currently I’m using these two cleansers on rotation. Both work wonders on my dry, winter skin, and they also remove every ounce of make-up at the end of the day.”

Fenty Skin Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturiser SPF 30, £32

“This is my favourite SPF of all time and I always have a couple on the go. Silky in texture, it sits so well under make-up and has zero white cast, so you can never tell it’s there.”Available At

Hourglass Velvet Story Lip Cream, £35

"I’ve struggled for years to find a lipstick that actually feels comfortable to wear, but also matches my skin tone and lip colour. A firm favourite is this one from Hourglass – it has the kind of beautiful, pink-y tones that are universally flattering. I also love Victoria Beckham’s Lip Definer in No. 02, while the Rouje Lip Palettes are also part of my collection – they’re matte, but surprisingly buildable.”Available At Space
