Val Garland (Jason Lloyd Evans)
Despite juggling her busy schedule between Vogue cover shoots, YSL Beaute meetings (she’s their Artistic Make-Up Advisor, we’ll have you know) and jet-setting between fashion capitals, make-up legend Val Garland managed to savour a quiet moment earlier last week to share with us the beauty products lurking inside her make-up bag. After all, Val has been in the industry for 28 years- working on everything from catwalk shows (it’s her magic hands that create the looks at Vivienne Westwood each season) to numerous Vogue covers- so we reckon this beauty guru sure knows a thing or two about looking good. Read on to discover the products we found inside Val’s make-up bag…
