This week we caught up with Grazia's very own Angelica who works on the beauty team and is a self-confessed product junkie. From new beauty tools to hot new nail varnishes, she is like a magpie to anything makeup related. When not perusing websites like Cult Beauty and Space NK, she can be found scouring many top beauty blogs such, Into The Gloss being the current favourite.
Inside Angelica's makeup bag
Austique Makeup Bag, £45 – this is my favourite new season purchase and actually doubles up as a mini clutch bag for evenings too.
Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 03 Brume D’Or, £31 – although this look quite dark, it’s actually an amazing shade on pale skin as you can really contour with it and add a pop of rouge to cheeks mid-afternoon when your complexion is suffering a little
La Prairie White Caviar Illuminating Hand Cream, £94 - my hands always get so dry and this is the best remedy I have come across. What's so great about it is that whilst nourishing your skin it also illuminates it to make your hands look model-worthy and beautiful at the same time.
Balmi, £4.99 – my favourite new discovery! This is a keyring but also contains a yummy raspberry balm. I am obsessed with it.
No 7 Fanomenal Lashes Mascara, £13 – I’m a huge fan of the whole No 7 range and this is my top mascara yet. It’s got a great brush and really coats each lash all over to give you thick and luscious lashes.
Stylfile, £4.50 – this clever little tool is an amazing nail file that works brilliantly thanks to its curved shape. It makes much more sense to have a file this shape because of how you shape your nails so I am a big fan and keep telling my friends about this
NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner in Rue du Rivoli, £17 – I find khaki liners and shadows are much more forgiving than black for my blue eyes so I like to use this each morning to just outline my eyes and wake them up a bit
YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick in 5, £24 – these new lippie is not only a winning, on-trend colour but it’s the sheerest formula that moisturises your lips whilst coating them for hours. My makeup bag is never without it at the moment
Bare Minerals Brush, £24 – I love great quality brushes and this is my best yet. Its really soft and the perfect size for bronzer or blusher. It also doesn’t leave stray bristle hair on my face which is good!
Daniel Sandler Instant Tan Powder, £22.50 – a new addition to my makeup bag, this dark tan shade is great for adding a touch of glow to the skin, especially in this cold winter weather. For best results apply to your t-zone and under your cheek bones to add definition to the face.
