To say we are fans of St. Tropez is an understatement. We blooming love them! From the tans and illuminators to the body lotions and bronzers, it's a range that Grazia Team Beauty always have a good stash of for those uh-oh moments when only a touch of tan will do. So imagine our excitement when we caught up with the brand's VIP Tanning Expert Michaella Bolder and had a peek inside her makeup bag...
Clarin’s Beauty Flash Balm, £29 - This is the perfect alternative to a primer and I use it daily under my foundation. If I’m not wearing foundation it’s the perfect way to give my skin a boost and hydrates my skin really well.
YSL Touché Éclat, £25 - This cult classic is the best cover up for the dark circles around my eyes, it’s a staple and can be used without foundation for a quick skin pick me up
Estée Lauder Double Wear Light, £27.50 - I don’t like to look as if I’m wearing layers of make up so this foundation suits me perfectly. It’s very light yet gives great coverage. Most importantly, it feels like it is letting my skin breathe.
St Tropez Perfect Legs Spray, £8.50 This handbag sized product is a god send and is perfect when your skin needs an injection of last minute colour. A light spray over my legs gives them a perfect matt, airbrushed finish
Bare Minerals Blush, £19 - I love this blush and its perfect for people like me who like make up to be an extension of your natural skin tone and not to feel too heavy. This gives a natural, pinky colour across my cheek bones
Chanel Eye Pallete, £38 - This combination of subtle natural tones is my go to. In the day I use the natural lighter colours, but the beauty is that they can be built up for a more dramatic evening look. As I spend a lot of my time on the move I’m always looking at combinations like these to minimise what I carry around with me
Lancôme Hypnose Mascara, £22 - I think this Mascara is amazing!! I have tried almost every mascara available but none have ever to close to the end result to that of Hypnose - long and luscious. I don’t know what I would do if heaven forbid, it ever got discontinued!
St Tropez Violet Skin Illuminator, £12 - This subtle illuminator is often my final touch to my makeup and the violet shade is very ‘this season’. I apply a small amount to my finger and press onto my cheek bones, down my nose and, under the your brows for a light, ethereal glow. I’ll be using the pink and gold shades in the summer, to highlight cheekbones and on my legs and arms for a lengthening effect. This product also looks fab on your lips before gloss or balm.
