I have a little box of stuff that I keep beside me if I’m doing a bit of a long-haul filming day. My face tends to get really sore if I do more than one makeup change (brilliant asset for a model!) and so I like to have a few soothing things handy, and also a selection of little bits and bobs to tidy up wonky mascara or errant liplines. I don’t retouch my videos or stills (can you even retouch video?) and so if I’m photographing products on my face I like to make sure that it’s all nice and neat before I start taking the pictures – I go through mountains of cotton buds and eye makeup remover!
The products in my Filming Kit do change depending on what I’m testing out at the time, but there are a few die-hard regulars in this video, including Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place concealer (just brilliant) and Pai’s Echium Eye Cream, which is amazing for soothing sore undereyes. The Clarins Repair Concentrate is a relatively new one for me – it’s more of an oil than the fluid you’d expect – but it works really well if you feel that your face needs a bit of a calm-down moment. I’d also highly recommend the Rose Balancing Moisturiser from MV Organic Skincare if you’re looking for something de-stressing and re-setting that will cocoon your face and make it feel less angsty. You can find that here.
Right – I’m off to film more videos! If you like my makeup in this one, then it’s the same combo as I detailed in my Glowing Skin MakeupDream Team post.
