Katie's Favourites - My sister's beauty edit


My sister is cool. Cooler than me. It's ok, I'm fine with it. She's got great taste, likes products that work; and being an ex-personal trainer everything looks great on her. Ugh. I know. Life's not fair. I asked her for her current go-to face edit, and she didn't disappoint - what a list of beauties...

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder and Ambient Blush - Katie is currently using (for using, read borrowing on a semi permanent basis) my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit palette. Subtle, luminous blush; ethereal, believeable highlight and beautiful texture to all of the powders. I audibly gasped on first swatch. What a glorious little creature this is. This was limited edition, but you can find individual ambient lighting powders and blushes at Space NK in the link above. 

Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise in Jean and Soap and Glory Supercat liner in Carbon Black - I have to confess I haven't tried either of these, but Katie swears by them. CT's chic little pot of joy makes for an easy peasy super-quick eye look that really does look as if it took you hours. It can be used as both a subtle wash of daytime-appropes colour, or smoked out with a matte shadow for the evening.
Oh, and I can vouch for mega liner-envy from Katie's use of the Supercat liner, so it must be a pleasure to use, and I am assured it's long lasting - though it'll take a lot to separate me from Stila stay all day...

Boots Seventeen Falsifeye HD Mascara - her (and my) high street mascara au choix. Ever since Wayne Goss mentioned this I've been really keen to give it a go, and if its lengthening you're after without sacrificing too much volume - this is your man.It's really easy to remove too - no scrubbing at your eyes at the end of the day, and at a very reasonable price point - this knocks the socks off many more expensive mascaras! 

MAC Matte Lipstick in Velvet Teddy - Vivianna does makeup is a fan, so it must be great.  The perfect not-too-90s rosy brown nude lip. And it goes with just about everything. This is a total go-to lip colour for my sister and for me. With a lovely, creamy matte formula and the classic chic MAC bullet, its easy to apply and pop in your bag for touch-ups. 

I'll come on to the Zoeva and Real Techniques beauties in the photo in a following post: they deserve their own rave!
