My Favorite Makeup

10 Dec 2014

Untitled222I get asked allll the time what makeup I wear. I have been through many, many years of trying various makeups through all the photoshoots I’ve done. Growing up I had my obsession with all those brands that put lots of money into advertising (mainly because I couldn’t afford anything else). Once I began modeling, I learned what makeup cakes on and gives you breakouts, which ones don’t cover enough, and which brands were just perfect…for my skin.

One thing you must remember is that everyone’s skin is different, so what works for me might not work for you. With that being said, I will still share a brand that I absolutely love because I’ve been using it for over a year now and can’t get enough of it!

I first came across Inika at Whole Foods in London. I was trying on the different brands they had looking for a new foundation that was powder based, didn’t cake on, and gave good coverage. I’ve previously tried Bare Minerals, but it wasn’t for me so I was a bit skeptical about trying out a mineral foundation again. I found the color that matched my skin and fell in love immediately! Inika’s product gave my skin full coverage without the need to have a lot on. It has a small shimmer to it, making you glow (a question I get a lot!) and I could wear it all day without getting oily, something that I deal with a lot.

I’ve been using #4 Nurture in the foundation ever since! Since then I’ve stocked up on other products including their other products such as the primer which has avocado and apricot, the mineral eyeshadow in Burnt Sienna, the highlighting creme (another secret for that glow), and my second favorite thing ever- the eyeliner in Coco. I am actually obsessed with this eyeliner as it comes with a sharpener and goes on soooo smooth and easy.

While their products are a little more pricey than some others, I personally think they are 100% worth the cost. When you find something that works with your skin, makes you feel beautiful, and gives you confidence then you won’t be as concerned about the cost (also because you won’t be using as much makeup to cover up your gorgeous face!).

With Love, N
