Make-up artist Louise Dartford is committed to using non-toxic cosmetics in her professional kit. As one might expect, her make-up bag is overflowing with gorgeous cosmetics straight from the catwalks.
I love Oskia Get Up & Glow as a pre make-up base, it brightens skin as it nourishes (also great for applying over make-up later in the day as a pick-me-up).
I have been using Jane Iredale’s Liquid Minerals for my base along with her Circle\Delete and Active Light under-eye concealers to revive my tired eyes! rms “Un” Cover Up also has an active place in my make-up bag. I use it to conceal redness. Great for days when I don’t want base all over.
I use rms cream eyeshadow in Magnetic to create a smokey evening look. It gives a great sheen and is so easy to use.
I love Jane Iredale’s PureLash Extender and Conditioner. It really does make a difference to how your mascara goes on. My current mascara is Lavera’s Double Black Mascara – try using the lengthening brush first then the volumising brush for an impressive lash.
Another staple is rms Living Luminizer. I use this on my cheekbones and browbones for a healthy glow and instant radiance.
I love the bright lips which seem to be a permanent fixture on the runways at the moment. I use Elysambre’s Garnet Red a lot at work, so I’ve put one into my make-up bag to encourage myself to wear it!
