I’ll be delving inside their bags on your behalf and totting up every item in there, from the most expensive to the cheapest. Not only will you be left with an incredible shopping list, but also a realistic price tag to boot. Is there someone whose makeup bag you’re dying to see inside? Slide into my Instagram DMs with your requests, and I’ll see what I can do. This month, we’re delving inside the everyday makeup bag of makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes.
Born in Merseyside, Hughes started her makeup career at an Estée Lauder counter in her hometown of Birkdale before she moved to London and started doing nails in a fashion environment. After moving to America in 2013, Hughes shifted her attention away from manis and toward makeup. Fast-forward to present day, and she now has over 293,000 followers on Instagram, where she’s renowned for her experimental makeup tutorials, dewy-skin looks and expert advice.
Now residing in New York, Hughes was recently back in London to celebrate her new role as resident glow expert for Elemis. As a huge fan of Katie’s colourful, radiant makeup looks, I couldn’t wait to catch up with her to see what products she genuinely uses on a daily basis.
