Shahnaz Loves Beauty

Each month I have new favourite products that I seem to reach for when it come to myself and when I am on a shoot. So what am I loving this month:

Mac MasterClass Oval 6 Brush: Love love love. I have been using this now the past 2 weeks and I used it again on my model yesterday and I just love how the foundation melts into the skin and blends so beautifully. Its so easy to use and you can really get into areas like around the nose and the lips which normally I would switch brushes. The bristles feel like silk on your skin. If you haven’t gotten one already go get yourself one before they sell out.

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream: Since getting the limited edition pot I have been using this product a lot. Maybe because I love the packaging so much I don’t know but I can’t get enough of it. Its great for a few things which I blogged about last month especially for keeping those lips hydrated and even though I still love my trusty Carmex this one is right up there.

Smashbox Hydrating Primer: The more I use this primer the more I like it. The skin feels fresh after using and gives a little glow. Especially as its hot right now here I don’t want my skin or the model’s skin to be too shiney this is perfect as a canvas before applying any foundation.

Smashbox Brow Tech: Normally I always grab my Mac brow pencils but in the last few weeks I keep going for this little winner. It has 2 shades and a wax to tame those unruly brows. Its easy to apply with a small angle brush and really defines those brows.

Clarins Crayon Kohl in Intense Black: This pencil launches in March is SA but I want to give you a heads up on the eye pencil. Its so easy to apply and also perfect for blending to give that smudged smokey eye. I used it on set yesterday to give some definition to my model and I love it.

Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch: What can I say its a great budget buy. When they first launched in London I was patiently waiting for them to arrive in SA. When they did I bought 3 of them but I am really loving this pink one. Feels great on the lips with instant hydration and is so smooth when you apply and leaves a pretty pink shade so its not too much.

So those are my picks. I promise I will do some more budget picks this month as most of you have spent all your hard earned cash over the holidays.

Hope you enjoyed my post. Shahnaz x
