The questions I get asked the most has to be “what’s in your makeup kit” and “what are your favourite products?”
So here is my makeup kit, ok not all of it, it’s so big I am sure I have missed a lot but these are all my favourite products that I regularly use. You will notice that most of my brands are high end luxury brands as I love to pamper you all with the best products on the market!
The most important part of makeup is the skin prep. For skin to glow and to avoid the dreaded cakey look I always hydrate the skin. I avoid products with fragrance, sunscreen and alcohol so the skincare is suitable for sensitive skin too.

Our focus is on artistry not selling products however due to requests for touch up products we do sell Melli Lipsticks and glosses
I have hundreds of brushes so that I always have a clean one handy when I am making up large bridal groups or working on a busy Live TV show as it is imperative that brushes are always steralised and clean ready for every person.
