Today Emma shares some beauty tips with us:
Name: Emma Slater Hometown: Tamworth, England
Dream Job: To Host a television show
Beauty product everyone should own: Murad skin perfecting moisturizer is magic for me.
Beauty tip from mother: with eyebrows, more is more! (I would over shape them so now I cringe when I look back at old photos!)
Recent beauty splurge: I went to Saks Fifth Ave and splurged recently on so much. Kevyn Au Coin make up is SENSATIONAL. I recommend the sensual skin enhancer pots and The Celestial Skin Liquid Lighting which is a gentle highlight. Also Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir is my fav perfume right now so I bought my fix of that!
Don’t leave home without: My Stay all day liquid lipstick from Stila in color Patina!
Beauty inspiration: I like natural. Zendaya is rightfully a beauty inspiration for me, she completely nails the fresh-faced, flawless look but isn’t afraid to edge it up every now & then with a colorful eye or dramatic new hairdo. And her outfits are heavenly!
How I relax: walking for me is so relaxing. I love to people watch and go for sunny day strolls with my new adopted pup Ruby and my Man Friend Sasha.
Always in my fridge: Fruit and loads of it. I think I was a fruit bat in a previous life! Also I collect salad dressing. Heinz beans and eggs for my British breakfasts!
Guilty pleasure: Haagen-Dazs pralines and cream Ice Cream and any murder detective TV series. Bingo!
Beauty product that should be invented: I have hair issues sometimes so I’d like a spray that doesn’t make my hair stringing and adds weightless bounce to my curls without making them static. Kind of a magical comb through volume spray! Or shoes that massage your feet whilst not being a danger in the rain…. Obviously!
Beauty tip for readers: Pop a more vibrant eye shadow color just under your lower lash line to give you a more edgy look. Choose a color that complements your eye color and smoke it out using a bigger blending brush. Great to achieve a confident, sexy look! I use ‘Bitten’ by Make-up Geek or ‘Coppering’ by MAC.
