Top 10 beauty must-haves
Phoebe Caramitsos, director and owner at Flossy & Leigh Ltd in Barrowford tells us her top 10 beauty must-haves, flossyandleigh.com
Baume de Rose, By Terry - a daily luxurious treat for the lips which leaves a gorgeous iridescent rosey hue. They also do versions with a range of very subtle hints of shade - perfect for those who hate the feel lipstick or gloss.
Caudalie Beauty Elixir - A fine plant extract spray-mist that helps to set make-up and hydrate skin. Another luxurious treat for the skin, to aid a glowing complexion.
Shu uemera UV under base mousse - A weightless, brightening mousse primer/base that evens out skin tone and texture.
Kevyn Aucoin Celestial days/nights Bronzer - Undoubtedly one of my favourite bronzers out there, as it has a graduation from a matt to glow finish, all in the one palette. You simply sweep a cross the graduation and concentrate in the section you need to get the glow and intensity that you want.
Illamasqua eye pigment in 'Furore' - I use this pretty much on 90% of the brides I have. It helps brighten the eyes, to add a bit of dazzle to a natural make-up look. I also place it in the inner tear duct to add an element of innocence and youth.
Armani Foundation (maestro) - This is more of a tinted skin treatment, and perhaps one of the lightest versions of a foundation on the market. I keep this in my kit for those ladies who really don't like the feel of wearing make-up, and hate the thought of looking too made up.
Clinique Lash Power mascara - This has become one of my recent favourites due to it's long-wearing formulation, each lash looks covered and separated, and it lasts for ages without smudging or coming off.
Lash inserts - I'm not a fan of strip lashes when it comes to wedding days. If you cry, or touch your eyes and they start to lift, the whole look is ruined. I tend to use lash inserts, and plenty of them. They look so much more natural. Keep them short and plentiful, so it just looks as though you have the world’s best mascara on.
Temptu S/B airbrush Foundation - This is my number one choice airbrush foundation for weddings, as not only is it completely flawless in it's application, but it's completely waterproof, and so perfect for emotional brides and their parties.
NARS blush in Orgasm - Every girl needs this in her bag. It has a pinky flush to it, with an almost golden hue. It can look super-natural, and suits pretty much everyone's skin tone.
