Here is the complete list of products so you can recreate her gorgeous look!

1. Primer

I used the Kiehl’s Hydro-Plumping Re-Texturing Serum Concentrate, £41, as Jess’s primer. I love this because it’s clinically tested to your plump skin.


2. Foundation

I then used one of my favourite foundations on Jess, the Sheer Glow Foundation from Nars, £33. It really brightens your complexion and gets that glowy finish.

3. Concealer

The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is amazing. It has a long-wearing, buildable formula that helps to create a soft, even finish. This is perfect for my clients as it’s non-drying and crease-proof.

4. Setting Powder

I used the Affect Matte Effect Transparent Loose Rice Powder in this month’s Glossybox. This is great because it suits all skin tones and it gives a perfect matte finish. It’s perfect for everyday and professional makeup.

5. Eyebrows

The Obsession Brow Pomade range is fabulous. The easy to blend cream formula glides on dries down quickly for a long-lasting and smudge-proof matte finish. There are seven shades to choose from and I used light brown on Jess. It’s so affordable too at only £6.


6. Eyeshadow

I love the eyeshadow palettes from Inglot. You can build your own palette and choose each and every shade, which is perfect for me being a professional makeup artist.

7. Eyeliner

I used the incredible Fat Liquid Eyeliner from Eyeko, £16, which comes in every April Glossybox! This easy to handle chubby pen delivers big, bold lines with a long-lasting carbon-black colour. Plus, this felt tip style pen makes it so easy if you’re not a pro at liquid eyeliner!

Check out my tutorial on how to recreate the Twiggy look using this liner.

8. Eyelashes

I used the Wing It Luxury 3D lashes from my own collection called CINK, £6.99These are perfect because they don’t look too heavy or false. The eyelash strands blend together with your own eyelashes for a seamless finish. I am giving all Glossies a special discount code too –  use the code Glossy30 for 30% off your lash order (valid until the end of April.)

9. Bronzer/Contour

Bronzer Chanel

The velvety finish of this Chanel Bronzer, £40, leaves your skin with a beautiful sun-bathed look. You can even wear this on its own without foundation!

I dabbed this onto places where you’d usually contour and blended it in. Keep an eye out for my tutorial on contouring!


10. Set Your Contour

I set the creme-contour with the Topshop powder bronzer, £9.Topshop

11. Blusher

This MAC blusher is really lightweight and has a natural-looking finish. I thought the shade ‘Margin’ was perfect for Jess.

12. Highlighter

Lucky subscribers will find this full-size ModelCo highlighter in every April Glossybox. There are two shades, both of which are gorgeous. They are great multi-taskers too, doubling as a blusher too.

13. Lips

Every girl needs a MAC lipstick in her life! I adore the shade ‘Angel’ from their Frost lipstick range because it has a smooth, buildable coverage and a semi-lustrous finish. This shade really complements Jess’s makeup look for the Facebook Live.
