.My Style the Nation fave products.

Hey guys!  I just wanted to write a post about all the lovely products I've been loving using on 'New Look Style the Nation' on T4 every Saturday Morning!

 We were sent so many lovely things to try, we haven't made our way through all of it yet but these have been the most used so far!  Still 4 weeks to go so lots more time to try new things! I love my job!

Number 1 has to be the Urban Decay naked palette, especially on the first show we had such limited time with the models, this palette allowed us to have all the colours there, needed to create a naturally defined look and they go on so smoothly and blend like a dream, speedy pretty makeup in minutes!

Also by Urban Decay is the setting spray Dew Me, I LOVE THIS STUFF!  Its bloody gorgeous!  It gives a dewy finish whilst also helping to make your makeup last, its so clever!  Great in a studio situation when you are doing someones makeup at 7.30am that needs to last until midday, I have also tried it on myself and was so surprised how amazing it was even on my skin.  I have a very combination skin type, and normally have to powder every hour or so but with this stuff on I didn't have to as much and could still look dewy in an acceptable kind of way, which doesn't normally happen for me!

Something else which has been great is the Little White Lie Wash Off instant colour, Little White Lie is a sister company of Make Believe tanning products at a slightly more affordable price range.  The wash off colour has been great for quickly getting all the limbs on show looking gorgeous and uniformed, and its particularly great because its so easy to blend, I haven't experienced a streak appear at all!  Even when I have about 5 seconds to get someones legs done!  Another thing that I like about it, is once its dry, which takes around 30 seconds, it doesn't transfer at all which is great when a model is needing to change outfits or be dressed very quickly.  It comes in lighter or darker and can be bought in Boots for £10.

Other things we have been loving are; Eylure lashes, they are a firm favourite for my kit as they are so affordable and the amount of choice in style is brilliant.
L'oreal Professional hair products have been a new addition for the kit and I have to say I really like them, especially the Techni Art range.
Last but not least for this post is Dermalogica skincare, this stuff has been in my kit for years now, I can always depend on it doing what I need it to do and people sat in my chair are always very happy when they see Im going to use some Dermalogica on them!

The next episode of New Look Style the Nation is on tomorrow morning on T4 at 11.25am so be sure to watch!  Its live so I will be backstage somewhere running around with my set bag!

Thanks for reading, I have a few more things I am excited to use on this weeks show so keep your eyes peeled for a post on how I got on with those.
