This week we caught up with make-up artist supreme Julia Carta to chat all things beauty and the products she simply couldn’t be without. Gorgeous Julia has been in the beauty industry for over 15 years and has been the official make-up artist on every series of X Factor to date, and has been a personal make-up artist to Simon Cowell for over a decade! Sexy Simon aside, Julia has also worked her magic on the likes of Keira Knightley, Sienna Miller, Miranda Kerr, Naomi Watts and Thandie Newton to name a few, so we reckon this lovely lady knows a thing or two about looking good! Read on to find all about the goodies lurking inside Julia’s make-up bag…
Inside Julia's Make-Up Bag
Louise Young Mini Makeup Travel Brushes, £55: They are dinky, soft and professional and are fabulous for when you are on the go.
Daniel Sandler Watercolour blush, £15.50: I love these blushers as they come in a wide range of colours and gives you an air-brushed finish with no harsh edges.
Shavata Brow Perfector, £19.50: They come in 3 realistic natural shades that will suit any eyebrow queen- I carry one everywhere!
Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, £20: Because personally I think they are one of the best performers in the business.
Sheer Cover Mineral Powder Foundation, £21.95: This gives you a luminous flawless complexion in an instant, a must for anyone’s makeup bag.
Clinique Airbrush Concealer, £18: An SOS for the eyes as it diminishes and brightens dark circles/panda eyes.
Kryolan Cream Liner, £14.50: This is an intensely long lasting, waterproof eyeliner and comes in a great choice of colours, and glides on like a dream.
Urban Decay Naked Flushed, £20: I love it as it leaves you with a fresh, radiant look and comes in a compact with a bronzer highlighter and a soft pink blusher. It’s a fabulous multi-talented product that great for contouring and highlighting and takes you from day to night.
Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara, £22.50: This mascara is blacker than black and coats every individual lash with its round tipped head so it’s perfect for baby lashes and for lengthening and thickening.
Creme de la Mer Lip Balm, £42: I love it as it deeply hydrates with a fresh minty taste.
