What’s In Your Beauty Bag?
I truly agree with Marilyn Monroe who ones said: “A smile is the best makeup a girl could wear”. Still.. a little make-up never hurt anybody 🙂 Marilyn as well who after all of these years continues to inspire beauty and fashion looks adored beauty products and make-up just as most of us do love them. This month we had the chance to poke around in the beauty bag of a stunning flight attendant, Anna who revealed us some of her beauty secrets and her favourite products.

VIBES: How long do you take to get ready in the morning? What’s your morning beauty routine?
ANNA: If I had to say how long then its somewhere between 30 minutes and 1 hour 30 minutes depending on the occasion 🙂 Obviously if I am not planning anything for the day it takes shorter. Usually I wake up around noon -my body clock is so messed up because of night shifts at work- then I put on my favourite music on and off I go. First I wash my face with warm water and I use L’oreal’s Pure Clay facial cleanser then I apply rose scented toner which I absolutely love. Lastly is face and eye cream. For the face I use L’oreal Hydra Genius Aloe Water gel since my skin gets oily throughout the day – especially in my ‘T zone’ – and the eye cream I use is L’oreal’s Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle and Firming cream. After all this I start my make up.
VIBES: Do you have an absolute favourite make-up brand?
ANNA: Oh my God. Yes. A lot! I can’t just love one, can I? You know what I have been using the liquid lips by Kat Von D and Anastacia BH for a long time and I love them they just stay on forever even if I eat, drink or kiss 😉 . My other 2 favourites are Fenty Beauty’s longwear foundation and the one and only Estée Lauder’s Double Wear. Oh I just love them.
VIBES: If you could only choose to do only one before leaving the house, would you do prefer doing your hair or your makeup?
ANNA: Makeup but if there is a third option then I wouldn’t leave without my fav perfume.
VIBES: Are you using regularly face / hair masks? Home made or drugstore products? Which is your favourite?
ANNA: I use one conditinoner which is kind of a hair mask too. It is an Italian brand called Serical – Crema Al Latte – hair milk mask. I’ve been using it for like 10 years. Lately I’ve been making my own face mask which is very simple an organic egg and cinnamon mixed together. It minimizes the pores on our face and it has anti-inflammatory properties. Yes, I do get pimples and this is an amazing mask to prevent them.
VIBES: Beauty Products you always carry in your bag?
ANNA: Pressed powder, nude lipstick, perfume.
VIBES: Tinted Moisturizer, BB Cream, or Foundation?
ANNA: I love Garnier’s BB cream but right now I only have foundations at home.
VIBES: Do you have some tried and tested beauty tips or beauty routine you could share with us?
ANNA: They say beauty comes from within. Well, that’s true. It can be the most expensive face mask in the world if you are ugly from the inside it won’t help. I feel the most beautiful when I am happy surrounded by my family. And this was tested and tried before.
VIBES: Do you have a style inspiration?
ANNA: I just love Kandee Johnson and Mimi Ikonn. They are my two favourite style and beauty influencers.
VIBES: Thank you Anna 🙂
