I would have posted this in the MAU forum but hardly anyone seems to post there so I'm looking on ideas to sort out my make up bag, I'm doing most of my own make up for shoots so needing to get better stuff haha! Right now I'm really needing a decent foundation and mascara, would prefer if answers were mainly about British designer brands, I don't have enough pennies to buy expensive make up and have it shipped over haha :P xxx
I swear by Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, but not everyone likes it because its too think, but I like it for the constant converage it provides. Also it seems to be the only foundation brand that makes my skin colour! Chanel is my favourite brand though <3 also Mac is great for colours, and Illamasquan if you want really out-there stuff (I think it was originally designed for theatre but I could be wrong). Mascara Im currently using is an Estee Lauder one. Chanel has to be my fave though when I can afford it! They do brilliant eyeliners.
I'm a MUA and I use Estee Lauder double wear foundation. IT's great coverage and lasts for ages. You can mix it with moisturiser for a lighter look. Loreal do good mascaras. YSL Touche Eclat is also excellent for shoots.
