Emily’s beauty bag: The products I’m wearing to work

I’m the (sort-of-self-proclaimed) Queen of Products in the List for Life office. I love trying out new things and I’m quite ruthless about if I let them stay in my beauty bag, or if they get tossed into the obscurity that is my Pandora’s box (a box in my flat that is full of things I rarely look at – You know the ones!). 

When it comes to the beauty products I use for the office, I’m even more ruthless. I want products that will last all day. Here are the things I’m loving right now…

1. Sisley’s Self Tanning Hydrating Facial Skin Care

Sisley is an absolute wonder brand that I have loved for years. This tanning and moisturising dream of a product was recommended to me by a friend at Harper’s Bazaar and I’ve used it ever since. It’s a commitment purchase for sure, but soooo worth it!

2. Tom Ford’s Complexion Enhancing Primer

Tom Ford is a relatively new beauty brand to me (shameful to admit I know!), but after trying this primer I’m hooked. Pores disappear and I can actually wear it alone, without foundation over the top, and it still looks good! This is a definite desk-to-dinner go-to that will give you the complexion refresh that it needs after a long day.

3. Omorovicza’s Queen of Hungary Mist

A good toner can honestly transform your complexion. I’ve tried A LOT of them (as you all know how much of a beauty junkie I am) and this is the best one ever. It smells divine, is lightweight but doesn’t feel like it’s not doing anything, and it looks pretty on your bathroom shelf – what more could you ask for?

4. Kevin Murphy Doo.Over Spray

My hair lacks the Brigitte Bardot volume that I am constantly seeking. Dry shampoo can leave hair feeling sticky and heavy, and some of those hair powders can feel very cakey. This spray is light but still adds enough texture to create volume. I’m still seeking the Brigitte look, but until then, this will Doo (excuse the pun!)

5. Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Neutraliser

I wasn’t actually a huge fan of the Touche Eclat concealer when it first came out, but I’m obsessed with these neutralisers. They honestly work so, so well! The violet coloured one neutralises dull, sallow skin, the apricot one neutralises dark spots (I’ve been using this on my dark circles) and the green one neutralises redness and minimises blemishes. If you’re suffering from what I like to call ‘office skin’ (sitting at a desk isn’t exactly the route to perfect dewy skin) then you NEED these!
