SHEmazing! caught up with Anna-Leigh who let us in on her secrets and tips:
What is your best budget beauty buy?
My best budget beauty buy would be the Maybelline Fit Me concealer – I love this for under my eyes! It covers well, brightens under my eyes and last all day! This has replaced my MAC prolong wear concealer, recently.
What is your top make-up tip?
Well I don't know how I could survive without this tip especially for an eyeliner junkie like myself. I use Sellotape (make sure most of stickiness is removed on back of your hand first) to do my cat flick liner, using it as a straight edge to create the perfect flick. Instead of spending 20 minutes at my liner – in two minutes I'm done.
Most girls have much-loved lipstick – what's yours?
I'm huge fan of the Urban Decay Revolutionary lipsticks! I love their shade range and how moisturising they are!!
What was your very first perfume and what are you currently wearing?
I think my first perfume was Kate Moss – loved it! I'm currently wearing a Jo Malone perfume I got for Christmas! It's divine. When I want to feel ultra glam I use this!
You're only allowed use three make-up products for the rest of your life – what are they?
Oh jeepers, this is a toughie! Well, an eyebrow gel for sure – have to have my eyebrows in place. A concealer to cover my dark circles and any other blemishes and a lip balm! Can't go anywhere without a lip balm!
