London-based makeup artist and former fashion stylist Emma Day knows a thing or two about using good products.
Day travels the world perfecting the looks of the likes of Karlie Kloss, Bella Hadid, Isla Fisher, Judi Dench, Maisie Williams, and even Tom Hanks.
Her work has graced the covers of magazines and appeared on countless red carpets, including at the Cannes Film Festival, where she has worked seven times.
However, she told Business Insider that while she gets sent “so many products,” there’s one thing she wears every day.
“The Sarah Chapman Skin Insurance SPF,” she said. “It’s got a tint in it, and SPF – it’s fantastic.”
How much do I love @skinesis products … These really do the business – best facialist in town – looking forward to trying Skin insurance and the handy spot stickers for dodgy moments! Already addicted to the cleanser and overnight facial #skincare #skincareroutine #sarahchapman #beauty #perfectskin #antiaging #makeupartist #makeupkit
Other favourites include the Omorovicza Blue Diamond Eye Cream…
How much do I love @omorovicza skincare …if you want to invest in a brilliant anti aging range that has natural origins then I suggest you go for one of their incredible serums (I love the blue diamond) but there are loads of products in the range that are exceptional – the latest being the Oxygen booster and the Instant perfection serum ❤️ #skincare #omorovicza #antiaging #perfectskin #makeup #makeupartist #beauty
And brands like Sisley…
Thanks so much @sisleyparisuk for these new bits which I have been using since I got them.. the Black Rose cream has been a rave with both clients and myself – smells beyond divine and delivers glowy hydrated radiance .. the lip crayons give a hint of colour with balm and make lips look juicy and oh so pretty (my fave is the peachy nude 11).. the sun compact has 3 shades you can mix or use separately and perfectly flattering for summer skin ????❤️???? #makeupartist #makeup #skincare #antiaging #lipstick #bblogger #mua #TWGartists #makeuplover
…and Tata Harper.
New skincare obsession from @tataharperskincare ..thanks @purplepr for this green goodness …100% natural, non toxic and organic .. smells awesome and I love the little "mood" enhancing aromatherapy roller balls…???????????????? #organic #organicskincare #makeup #makeupartist #tataharper #beautifulskin #healthy #clean #cleanbeauty #green #natural #fresh #fornasetti
“And the CHANEL Vitalumière foundation – I use that on a lot of clients too,” she added. “It always makes their skin look really fresh and lovely even if it’s not – you can fake it with that.”
My current makeup and skincare essentials for a glowy healthy complexion – especially great for a post summer re-haul of sun burnished lacklustre skin.. I absolutely love all these ???? @omorovicza midnight radiance mask – a new one that you can pop on overnight and wakeup fresh as a daisy @renskincare perfect canvas – a really good silicone free priming serum @marcbeauty dew drops gives you fresh sunkissed glowy skin even when it's far from that ! @chanelofficial vitalumiere I recently called in one for me, one for my kit and one for Judi Dench who adores it – it's unbeatable @elemis.uk marine oil and pro collagen cleansing balm – the oil is ultra hydrating and soothing and cleansing balm is my all time favorite cleanser ❤️ #makeup #makeupartist #skincare #skincareessentials #radiantskin #makeupjunkie #perfectskin #TWGartists #makeupkit #products #mua
And if she could only choose one product?
“I think it would be a good serum – I love serum rather than moisturisers, they’re more concentrated.”
One of her favourites is the Omorovicza Blue Diamond serum.
“You can use that all over, it always gives that glowy skin,” Day said. “Although you’d need quite a lot of it if you were on a desert island.”
