For the second instalment of my Beauty Bag Snoop feature, we’re taking a sneak peek inside the make up bag of my pal and fellow journalist Bianca London.
Bianca works for the Femail section of the Mail Online which means she gets pretty incredible access to a whole host of beauty bits and pieces and is often one of my best sources of new product gossip and information about upcoming releases. No matter how many parties she’s been at – or how early her shift starts – Bianca’s make up is always the envy of the office and looks so sophisticated and put together, while the rest of us struggle to slap on a bit of concealer in the morning.
So, let’s take a look and see Bianca’s beauty bag:
Rimmel Stay Matte Primer – Make up artists backstage at Fashion Week dub a good primer as their number one beauty essential and this Rimmel offering keeps my make up in place from the 7.30am starts right through to the late-night parties
Kora Organics Energising Citrus Mist – This refreshing facial mist by beauty guru Miranda Kerr contains her secret skin boosting weapon, Noni. Anything Miranda uses and I’m sold
By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Wrinkle Control Serum Foundation – I’m already panicking about the onset of wrinkles but this super sophisticated foundation from the lady behind the iconic Touche Eclat promises to smooth skin whilst you wear it… clever
bareMinerals Orginial SPF15 Foundation – I like a lot of coverage on my skin because it’s pretty oily and this lightweight powder keeps the shine at bay
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick and Benefit Hoola – A self-confessed ‘tanorexic’, I am slightly addicted to bronzer. Hoola gives me a natural looking tan whilst the Shimmer Brick adds that golden shimmer
MAC Mineralize Blush – This subtle rosy glow helps conceal the fact that I’ve only managed to get five or so hours sleep
Topshop Finishing Powder in White Lies – This is my secret weapon. One sweep of this translucent powder and my make-up lasts all day long
Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon in Dark Pearl – How can you go wrong with something lovingly created by Kate Moss’s make up artist? Charlotte’s eye pencil adds a rose gold glow and it glides on beautifully
Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal Liner and Rimmel Scandal Eyes Rockin’ Curves Mascara – I’m a sucker for a good smokey eye and this pencil is both charcoal black and long lasting, while the mascara adds some serious volume
Rihanna for MAC Lipstick in Pleasure Bomb – This highly pigmented pink lippy is perfect for brightening up your look and it lasts forever (especially if you slick a coat of Lipcote over the top)
High Brow Eyebrow Shadow and Benefit Speed Brow – It may not give me bushy brows a la Cara Delevingne but it does the job
