Shhhhhh….Sneak A Peek Insider Her Makeup Bag!

Grammy-winner Estelle is back with new music (the Afro-reggae vibe of the single “Love Like Ours,”) and a fresh look! Here, we got the British singer to spill the contents of her makeup bag and share the beauty essentials she loves…

>Becca Evermatte Poreless Primer “I use Becca’s Poreless primer, it’s amazing. I’m naturally oily on my face and hair and I definitely need that underneath the makeup. It sets me down and it just keeps everything matte.”

> Giorgio Armani Beauty Mascara “I wear lashes when I’m working but sometimes I don’t and I have long lashes too so [I love having] a great mascara. But if I’m in a pinch and I really need some, I always go for Maybelline, the pink tube.”

> La Mer The Lip Balm “I use an expensive one by La Mer, I found it from my makeup artist. It’s almost like a gel but it’s quite thick, it’s almost like using natural shea butter. It sits on top of your lips and moisturizes deep through so I can be on an eight-hour flight and still be okay.”

For more from our exclusive beauty convo with Estelle, check out the Oct/Nov. ’17 issue of Sophisticate’s Black Hair…on sale now.
