Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray
There’s not many times where I’d stray from my MAC Fix+, but for those long days or nights out when I need more of a matte, long-lasting finish, this is needed. This cult classic from Urban Decay has some serious staying power and leaves makeup looking fresh without melting, fading or setting into lines.

Tangle Teezer Fine & Fragile Brush
I have a lot of hair, but it’s super fine. This makes it a nightmare to deal with when not tied up because it knots super easily, especially at the back of my neck. Tangle Teezer’s soft-flex bristles are 30% softer than the original so they don’t pull or tug.

Giorgio Armani Si
A step up from a vial, but just as beneficial for trying new scents, I couldn’t resist this cute bottle. I love fruity and floral scents and this fragrance combines blackcurrant with freesia – two of my favourites.

Rimmel Brow Pro Micro Ultra-Fine Precision Pencil – Dark Brown
When it comes to brow products, I LOVE a pencil. Better yet, pencils that feature a super fine tip for filling, defining and shaping. This super-precise automatic pencil from Rimmel has a 1.5mm tip which is PERFECT, and also includes a spoolie brush for blending and grooming your arches. It’s great for at-home maintenance.

Blink Brow Bar Clear Brow Gloss
If self-isolation has taught me anything, it’s that I am not very good at eyebrow grooming without my beauty therapist. Thankfully, this Clear Brow Gloss is perfect for a ‘lived in’ look and keeps them glossy and healthy-looking all day long.

Clinique All About Eyes
Typically, I’ve finished my eye cream while being at home, so was super happy to see this among the selections. Like most people, my eye area is the first to show the signs of stress and fatigue, which I have been feeling a lot lately. This lightweight cream diminishes all eye woes while being a great base for concealer.



Lisa Eldridge Velvet Ribbon Lipstick
As soon as I saw this was confirmed for Style, I knew I had to have it. The actual lipstick looks just like velvet and is such a universally flattering red shade.

Ultrasun Face SPF50
With the weather getting warmer, I wanted to try a new SPF. Although I wear sunscreen all year round on my face, when it gets hotter I like to up the factor. This SPF50 is perfect because it can be used instead of your day moisturiser to protect whatever you’re doing.

Giorgio Armani Si
We all know I am a fragrance girl. In fact, I’ve amassed quite the collection over my time at LiB. That doesn’t stop me wanting to try all the scents we get, so I was so excited to finally get my hands on this. The bottle will look great on my desk when we (eventually) get back to the office.

Josh Wood Tinted Dry Shampoo – Blonde
As a blonde, I can often find dry shampoos too white and chalky for my liking. This Josh Wood Tinted Dry Shampoo revives my roots in between salon visits while refreshing my hair between washing. If I can get away with one more day not washing my hair, I’m sold.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Petal to the Metal
I’m one of those girls who can’t not have my nails painted. How gorgeous is this colour? This formula is also quick drying, making it super long-lasting.

Eylure PROMAGNETIC Faux Mink Accent
I have been LOVING these lashes. Who said you can’t make an effort for video calls? Super easy to apply, all you need is a few coats of the liner and they will magnetise straight to your lash line.


James Read Sleep Mask Tan Face
This is such a brilliant product and a definite essential to have in your beauty cupboard. I always keep my face out of the sun and as a result I tend to look quite washed out, so this product is amazing as it gives me a healthy glow without looking orange! I also love the fact you put it on at night time, so you know you will feel fabulous when you wake up in the morning.

Rimmel Brow Pro Micro Ultra-Fine Precision Pencil Dark Brown
Brows define and shape your face so much and this pencil is one of the best I’ve tried! It glides on really well which makes it easier to create your shape.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Petal to the Metal
I love painting my nails, I find it quite therapeutic, so I am constantly adding to my collection. This is such a gorgeous colour for spring, and I always think pink shades on nails make you look fresh and polished.

Josh Wood Tinted Dry Shampoo Dark Brown
One of the unspoken heroes, dry shampoo! You cannot be without dry shampoo, it can take you from feral to fabulous instantly!! Especially at the moment as I am working from home and not washing my hair as often this really helps me to still feel fresh and presentable. The fact that this is tinted is great because you don’t have to worry about that grey/white tinge you can get from traditional dry shampoos! It does not clog up or weigh your hair down either.

Neal’s Yard Wild Rose Beauty Balm
One of the best multitaskers on the market, every time I have an opportunity to buy this balm I do! You can take off your makeup with it, use it as a moisturiser, or use it for dry patches on your body! It is amazing. I love the cute pot too.

Ultrasun Face SPF50
Decent suncream can be expensive so this is such a steal as Ultrasun is a very reputable suncream brand and it’s the perfect time to be stocking up on suncream as summer is approaching.


STS-AWARD-TEAM-PICKS-SHIVONANexxus Colour Assure Conditioner
This is perfect for my thick, coloured hair – it makes hair feel healthier and more manageable in just one use.

ESPA Optimal Skin ProMoisturiser
This smells absolutely gorgeous and leaves my skin feeling nourished – also doubles up as a great makeup primer.

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray
I love this spray because it’s very lightweight and my makeup stays intact the entire day – an absolute must in my makeup bag!

Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Body Booster Mousse
Every time I curl my hair this mousse gives it that little extra volume and helps to define my curls.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant
I really to keep this on my bedside table as it’s great for all dry skin, which is something I am experiencing right now from being indoors with the heating on. I apply this to my face and around my mouth as well as my lips when I need it.

Rimmel Brow Pro Micro Ultra-Fine Precision Pencil – Dark Brown
I like my makeup to remain pretty natural. This pencil matches my brows perfectly and is great for a tidy natural look
