What’s your hero concealer?
I have two concealers that I use daily. The Lancer Studio Light Flawless Eye Concealer which I put on over foundation. I use a combination of my baby finger and a brush to blend. Once I’ve finished my eye shadow, liner and mascara I use a dot of Bobbi Brown Instant Full Cover Concealer with a brush.
I adore cream blush and am currently using the Westman Atelier Baby Cheeks Blush Stick which I apply with a brush.
Hourglass Unlocked Instant Extensions Mascara in Black.
Instant Eye Shadow?
I always use an eye primer. Currently using Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Wheat. I follow with Westman Atelier Eye Pod in Tabac or for a more intense look I also add Violette FR Yeux Paint in Cuivre del’Aube. Both are rich bronze shades.
Easy Brow Gel?
Soap Brows from West Barn Co. I’ve just tried brow lamination from Blink Brow Bar for the first time and loved the results. I just add a touch of Soap Brows softened with Coconut Prep mist and I’m good to go.

Barely There Concealer?
Bobbi Brown Full Cover Concealer as above but using a brush to apply. Its more about the blending for me.
Skin prep is the best for glow. I always apply a facial oil over my moisturiser before SPF. Currently I’m really enjoying the Costa Brazil Kaya Face Oil.
Favourite Otis Batterbee makeup bag?
It has to be the Large Beauty Makeup Bag in Black Croc.
