Lilah Parson's beauty must-haves
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation, £10.99- I was recommended this by a makeup artist - it's affordable and as good as any high end brand. It gives great coverage and I love the gel texture - I get quite dry skin so it keeps me hydrated and doesn't become 'cakey'.
Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner, £7.99- I love doing a flicky eye and this is the best liquid liner I've found - it glides on easily and the brush makes a good shape. Plus it always lasts.
Benefit Bella Bamba, £23.50- It's a great colour for summer as its got a hint of bronze in the pink - good for that sun kissed look.
Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Soft Matte Bronzer, £28 - I couldn't live without bronzer - it instantly brightens up my complexion! I use a big brush and lightly sweep it over my forehead and cheekbones.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow in Heather Mauve, £17 - this is such a great colour - I wear it on its own or with a Flicky eye - it instantly gives the eye more definition.
YSL Rouge Volupte in Provocative Pink, £24.50 - I love having a pop of matt colour on the lips, I'm particularly partial to a hot pink. I think that even if you don't have time to do much else it makes you feel glamorous!
MAC False Lashes Mascara in Extreme Black, £18- I can be fussy when it comes to mascara but this one ticks all the boxes giving you rich black lashes - thickening and lengthening them as well as giving lift.
Dermalogica Solar Defence Booster, £34.95 - I really care about protecting my skin and this works well as it can be mixed in easily with any foundation. I use it daily - I mix it with my foundation in my hand then apply it with a sponge and after buff it in with a brush.
Bourjois Queen Attitude Kajal Kohl Eyeliner, £6.99- I love black eyeliner along the waterline inside the eye, teamed with Flicky eyes. It really gives you that cat like effect. This is great as it glides on easily to such a delicate area. You also don't need to sharpen it - handy!
