Inside her makeup bag with Claudia Graziano
With one of those faces just made for the selfie, Claudia Graziano might be known as a style influencer – but we love her just as much for her beauty looks as her fashion forays (did I say “love”? More like “obsess over”). From boyish groomed brows to smoky eyes and lashes for days, Claudia has long had us wanting to open up her bathroom cabinets and take a peek inside.
But rather than invading Claudia’s home, we’ve done the next best thing – and asked the Los Angeles-based blogger to talk us through exactly what can be found in her beauty regime. Here, she gives us a rundown of all the products – from skincare to cosmetics.
“I actually am in the market for a new one. I am currently using a cute one with palm trees on it I got from Skinny Dip London.”
“Anyone who follows me will tell you I’m addicted to my Neutrogena Light Therapy Mask. I use it everyday and it’s reduced the amount of breakouts I get times a million. I wash my face with Hibiclens and use vanicream. My skin can be moody and vanicream is extremely gentle and was recommended by my allergist!”
“I switch between a few foundations, but I always come back to L’Oreal True Match. It doesn’t get oily and photographs really well. If I want a little less coverage, I love the NARS tinted moisturizer – it gives you a little bit of a dewy look. My ride or die foundation is by Cle De Peau – it’s pricey but AMAZING.”
“I am extremely loyal to my bronzer – I love Hoola by Benefit. They make minis which are amazing for a going out bag or just your everyday purse. The small brush also makes a light contour easy! When it comes to blush, I change it up a bit – but I’m currently using one by NYX Cosmetics.”
“When it comes to eyes, Urban Decay has it in the bag. Their primer is out of control – your eyeshadow will last through anything. Obviously love their Naked Palettes as well for shadow. For eyeliner, I like the L’Oréal slim liquid eyeliner in black. For mascara, I’ve been using Maybelline Full and Soft for probably ten years. I swear no one buys it because the packaging isn’t anything special, but it works so well. I love the big full brush and it doesn’t get clumpy.”
“My go-to lip products are Honest Beauty Lip Crayon in Sheer Rose if I want some colour, and Kopari Lip Love for everyday. If I’m going for a dramatic lip, Urban Decay Vice lipsticks and liners are awesome too.”
“Urban Decay setting spray – this stuff is unreal. It’s the first thing in my suitcase for big events!!”
SOMETHING YOU CAN’T LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT:
“I hate leaving the house without a spooly. You never know when your eyebrows or lashes could use smoothing!”
