Goo Getter Spot Clarifying Dots, £18 | Zit Sticka

Pimple stickers are a must-have and these always work for me every time I have a pesky blemish that needs some attention.

Vitamin C Elixir, £48 | Cle Cosmetics

Containing sweet almond oil and jojoba seed oil, this is great for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also brightens and evens out skin tone, while promoting better collagen levels.

The Great Brow Basics Kit - Shade 03, £28 | Benefit

I get my brows laminated, so I only need to dip into this kit when the treatment starts to wear off. The 24-hour setter holds brows in place all day and I also use the contouring tools to further define the shape.

Jet Lag Mask

Jetlag Mask, £45 | Summer Fridays

This is such an iconic product and I always have it in my bag with me when I’m travelling. It’s a carry-on essential this summer.

Blush Divine Radiant Lip & Cheek Colour in ‘Foxglove’, £23 | Rose Inc

Right now, I rotate between these two blushes. I apply them with my fingers or a beauty blender to give my cheeks a light flush of colour.

N°1 De Chanel Revitalising Cream, £84 | Chanel

A luxurious night cream is such a treat to apply – and this one is worth the money. It always makes my skin feel amazing.

N°1 De Chanel Lip & Cheek Balm, £38 | Chanel

Right now, I rotate between these two blushes. I apply them with my fingers or a beauty blender to give my cheeks a light flush of colour.

Moon Juice Cosmic Cream Collagen Protecting Moisturiser, £58

I love wearing this moisturiser under make-up  – it makes my skin juicy and dewy before I apply any base products.

Available Here

Veil Mineral Primer, £50 | Hourglass

This primer’s incredibly silky texture makes it so satisfying to apply. It goes on so smoothly – and I love that the brand is cruelty-free.

Vanish Concealer, £32 | Hourglass

I use a bit of this to ensure my base looks completely flawless. It's so smooth, feels hydrating on the skin, and it also blends seamlessly.

Available Here

La Mouse Off/On Foaming Cleanser, £36 | Dior

This is my holy grail when it comes time to remove my make-up after a long day. It feels super light and satisfying to apply, but it works hard to remove everything without stripping or drying out my skin.

Available Here

Chubby Stick Contour, £21 | Clinique

In my opinion, a cream bronzer always looks more natural than a powder. This one blends out really well and the warm tint lends skin the ideal sunkissed look. Simply layer it up to use it as a light contour.

Available Here

Essence Moonlighter Cushion, £30 | Cle Cosmetics

My friend Lauren is behind Cle Cosmetics and everything in the range is immaculate. These highlighters never look or feel too heavy  – they just add a little glisten to your face. Meanwhile, the carefully designed applicator makes it easy to apply.

Available here 

Les 4 Ombres Palette, £48 | Chanel

For a great eyeshadow palette, I always turn to Chanel, and this one gets my vote. I love how curated it is, while still offering enough shades with which to create a versatile range of looks.

Available Here

CCC Cream Foundation with SPF, £38 | Cle Cosmetics

This suncream is so impressive – when blended into your skin, it adapts to your skin tone to create a light veil of coverage while also offering a decent dos of UV protection. I love to use this on holiday or on those ‘no make-up make-up’ days.

Available Here

Macadamia Oil, £25 | Bread Beauty Supply

I was drawn to this brand because of its support for BIPOC beauty. Although I don't have curly hair, I still use the Macadamia Oil to soften my strands and give it a sleeker finish.

Available Here

Radiance Oil, £150 | True Botanicals

Another great one for targeting the early signs of ageing, this floods skin with a host of nutrients to keep it looking and feeling plump.

Available Here

Eco-Friendly Hair Towel, £17.50 | Kitsch

A hair towel, comb and hair oils are all daily essentials – I just find they make all the difference.

Hair Towel, $45 | Crown Affair’s

A hair towel, comb and hair oils are all daily essentials – I just find they make all the difference.

Available Here

Matte & Skin Glow Foundation, £40 | Dior Forever

I mix these two foundations to get my perfect colour. They are both luminous and light-reflecting, which helps me achieve that soft and dewy finish.

Skin Perfecting Serum Foundation, $89 | Ocre

I mix these two foundations to get my perfect colour. They are both luminous and light-reflecting, which helps me achieve that soft and dewy finish.
