We are always intrigued to find out what the experts ‘go to’ favourite beauty products are and we today we delve into the makeup bag of the lovely Claire Hartley. We just love this top 5!
As a bridal make up artist, I use a variety of brands in my kit – I get asked a lot, what my favourite products are, or if I have any items I just couldn’t live without! Here’s my top 5!
1. Make Up by HD Brows Eye Primer
I LOVE this! This is a product I certainly couldn’t live without and I’ll never do any make up application without it! Keeping eye make up in its place, it also refines and visibly smooths the skin texture. Eyeshadow colour stays true and creases are eliminated and priced at £15.
2. Airbase Concealer Wheel
As an ‘Airbase Professional’ I was super excited when the brand launched this concealer palette! It contains 5 different shades and is suitable for all skin types. It gives amazing coverage – yet feels so light on the skin. I love using this palette for contouring and highlighting too! Priced at £24.95
3. Clinique Blushing Blush Powder Blush
These are by far my favourite blushers! I love the finish they give, the colour range is fabulous and the colour stays true all day. Bashful Blush is my most commonly used shade – giving natural definition for cheeks and perfect for a vintage inspired look. Priced at £22
4. Lancôme Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara
This mascara evenly coats the lashes, gives luscious volume and no clumps! I love the glossy finish it has and the brush is great, giving even the tiny corner lashes a lift! Priced at £22.50
5. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil
The best eye pencil – ever! These pencils glide on so softly and are blend able for about 30 seconds. Once they’ve dried, they do not budge! The colour range is fantastic so you can create endless looks. Priced at £15.50
