To ensure I can produce makeup with a professional flawless finish I continuely research and test new products, they have to meet a lot of requirements before they get to be in my pro kit. Is it long lasting? Will it look good on camera? Will it be suitable for sensitive skins? If a product doesn’t meet these requirements it doesn’t make the kit!
I have brands and ‘go to’ products in my kits which I know I can rely on time and time again including;
- Anastasia Beverley Hills
- Charlotte Tilbury
- Delilah Cosmetics
- Tarte Cosmetics
- Urban Decay
- Tropic Skincare
All of the above brands are against animal testing & have some vegan friendly products in their range.
For foundations I love to use Tarte Rainforest of the sea (a water foundation which is great for sensitive skins) which is vegan friendly and provides a natural medium finish. For fuller matte coverage I love Charlotte Tilbury Airless Flawless & Delilah Alibi Foundations which are transfer proof, sweatproof and blur the appearance of fine lines – great for brides with oiler skins or summer weddings
For everything skincare I love to use Tropic Skincare at the trial and on the day. Tropic is 100% Natural and kind to the skin whilst proving nourishment & Tarte has beautiful products to add radiance and prime the skin for makeup application. All brides receive a Skin Boost treatment as part of their bridal package
I also absolutely love Casmara for facials and more tailored skincare needs which I’m happy t o advise on
