SHEmazing! caught up with Hannah to get the 101 on her beauty secrets and tips:
What is your best budget beauty buy?
With all the hype around Balm Cleansers at the moment my best budget beauty buy is definitely The Body Shop’s Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter. It is a thick balm which melts away make-up as you gently rub it onto the skin. I use a flannel to then remove the product which leaves my skin super soft.
What is your top make-up tip?
When applying a powder (whether loose or pressed) swirl your brush in the product and then instead of swiping it over the face, gently press it onto the skin. This way you are actually sealing in the foundation and ensuring longevity, as sometimes the dragging of the brush across the skin can actually remove some of the foundation.
Most girls have much-loved lipstick – what’s yours?
My much loved lipstick is MAC Creme Cup. It’s a beautiful pink toned nude which is amazing for everyday. It’s also versatile and long lasting enough to be teamed with a smokey eye for a night on the town.
What was your very first perfume and what are you currently wearing?
My first ever perfume was one that has since been discontinued (I did get it many years ago now) but it was a floral, very powdery smelling scent which is something I would now hate. It was in a pink bottle that had a gold flower on top of the lid. I now wear Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche. It is a really fresh smell and has more of a subtle floral scent.
You’re only allowed use three make-up products for the rest of your life – what are they?
They would probably be concealer, mascara and a highlighter. I would choose MAC’s Pro-longwear concealer as it has a amazing coverage and you probably wouldn’t need a foundation. I would also pick up a mascara as I always think I look like a boy without it! Benefit’s They’re Real is my favourite at the moment as I think it has the most amazing formula. Lastly, I would choose a highlighter that I could use as a multi-purpose product (e.g I would use it as it was intended but also as a eye shadow etc…) I love MAC’s Mineralise Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle, however if I was really smart I could have purchased something like Sleek’s Face Form which is one product that includes a contour and highlight and a blush.
