What's In My Make-Up Bag?
This week, one of our very own digital content assistants is putting her beauty bag in the spotlight. Jodie Jones loves a bit of monochrome and is rarely seen without a slick of red lipstick, read on to get the low-down on her must-haves and recreate her classic beauty look for yourself.
First up, Jodie likes to cleanse and moisturise with our 8 Hour Deep Hydration range, which encapsulates a moisturiser, cleansing lotion, and face wipes.
“I’ve got really sensitive skin and most facial wipes tend to irritate under my eyes. The Deep Facial Cleansing Wipes are ideal as they don’t aggravate my skin, and they’re infused with vitamin E, which keeps my face happy!”
Also infused with Argan oil, the 8 Hour Deep Hydration products are perfect for thirsty skin, there’s even a facemask for those pamper days! We’ve thought of it all, right?
8 Hour Deep Hydration Face Cream £2
8 Hour Deep Hydration Cream Cleansing Lotion £1.50
8 Hour Deep Hydration Face Mask £1.50
When it comes to cosmetics, Jodie tends to keep her look classic and unfussy.
“Statement red lipstick aside, I like to keep my day-to-day beauty look relatively simple. I like being ready for all occasions, which means I find overly made-up or drastically neutral looks too one-sided for my lifestyle.”
For the most natural look, Jodie uses our Sunkissed Flawless Finish foundation as a base, and then applies Sunkissed’s Quick Fix concealer crayon and Glow Stick underneath her eyes and down the middle of her nose.
“I’m definitely not a contouring expert, but I use the Sunkissed Glow Stick religiously to enhance my cheek bones and give a natural-looking radiance.”
Flawless Foundation £3.50, Volumising Mascara £1, Brow Kit £2, Matte Long Lasting Lipstick £1, Concealer 80p
On the very rare occasion Jodie eschews red lippy, she’ll opt for a warm hint of neutral colour. Her fave? Sunkissed’s Sheer Balm lip crayon with vitamin E.
“You can probably tell I’m a little bit obsessed with the Sunkissed range! It’s just such great value and the packaging is super cute too.”
As for her eye make-up, Jodie keeps it simple with a dab of mascara and a bit of brow fixing. She’ll use a light coating of our Volumising Mascara, before shaping and defining the brows with our Brow Kit palette.
"I swear by this mascara! It lasts all day and doesn’t crumble."
As for the Brow Kit, I firmly believe everyone should own one, it’s got tiny tweezers in it!” And the final piece de resistance? Jodie’s signature red lipstick.
"I love an intense, matte finish, so I opt for our Matte Long Lasting lipstick in a true red shade."
Away from beauty bits and pieces, Jodie will also always have our travel toothbrush and toothpaste set to hand.
"Living in London and working in Reading means I’m between my own home and my parent’s home quite a lot. This little foldable toothbrush is the cutest and comes in so handy. It’s also absolutely perfect when I’m traveling for work."
