I have been in the beauty industry for about 8 years now and have loved every moment of it, this industry is particularly fabulous because you never stop learning, it's amazing how open everyone is and is always willing to share information. For the last 8 years I have been working as a make up artist, skincare specialist and also wax specialist. I have just perfected my gel application so am covering anyone I know on gel!
What make up brushes do you use?
I use Shu Uemura, MAC, a few Laura Mercier brushes and Illamasqua.
How do you clean your brushes?
Organic baby shampoo. After I'm finished using them I soak the bristles of the brush in warm water and massage with the shampoo. Then I rinse them and flatten them out so they dry well. Never submerge the whole brush. EVER! Once dry I give them a quick spritz of rose water mixed with a bit of anti bacterial cleanser. Wow! Long winded. But affective, and they will last a life time! Nearly.
What do you take your make up off with?
Coconut oil! Yep the good old OCM! Absolutely incredible. I recommend it for most of my clients and they love it now as much as I do!
Best top coat?
What fake tan do you recommend?
Now this is a popular one! So I've used them all and trained in the application of most of them but the best one by a million miles is Vita Liberata. This tan is like no other. The colours it comes in are so true to a natural tan it's ridiculous. The smell is pretty much non existent with a faint wiff of something warming and bakery like. It comes in a cream or gel that you can apply at home with a mit or you can get the spray at the salon. It's a fail safe tan you literally can't go wrong.
