Lancôme HypnoseDrama mascara When I am not working, I prefer not to wear make-up so I love this mascara as it gives you huge lashes top and bottom so you look fresh and bright-eyed.
No7 BB tinted moisturiserI love this as it keeps your skin moisturised, especially in winter, and also adds a little coverage so your skin tone is even and fresh looking.
Sephora eye make-up removerAbsolutely love this. I stocked up on it in the summer in France as it’s cheap and cheerful and really does the job.
Collection 2000 concealerI used to work for make-up companies so I have used a lot of expensive brands, but this is just as good.
