Paris Fashion Week must haves!

The French pharmacy Haul!

Paris fashion week (Ready to wear Spring/ Summer 2014) starts next week. I was inspired to write you an insider scoop list, of French pharmacy must haves that every makeup artist has in their kit. I’m also adding some luxury products that I love! ‘Oui oui”!

Paris fashion week must haves-1

  1. Nuxe – Reve de miel lip balm

    You know I love a lip balm! This one is a rich nourishing lip balm that smells and tastes like honey!

  2. Embryolisse- Lait crème concentre

    A moisturizer used by almost every European makeup artist to prepare the skin before a shoot. Just melts in to create the perfect base for foundation.

  3. Bioderma Solution Créaline TS H20

    Every artist has this magic, water like cleanser in their kit to do makeup changes when the models arrive from having done previous shows. Soak a cotton pad with it and gently wipe it all away, no need to rinse.(South Africans can buy this at Dischem)

  4. Biafine Cream

    The miracle cream that I use for sunburn!!! I learned about this product the hard way, after burning badly on a swimwear shoot in St Barth. Smear it on over the roasted skin and feel the burn literally seep away overnight. (Or you can use Greek yoghurt, a bit messy but it works!)

  5. Avibon vitamine A Pomade

    This is one of the best moisturizers for dry or mature skin, ever! It has Vaseline like consistency and contains lanolin and Vitamin A Retinol. It leaves your skin moist and dewy. Do not use on broken skin or if you are allergic to lanolin.

  6. Talika Lash Conditioning Cleanser

    The most gentle, yet thorough eye makeup and mascara remover I’ve used. I have literally gotten gobs of it in my eye and it does not burn or blur your vision at all. It removes waterproof makeup and mascara too. Highly recommend.

  7. Innoxa Blue Hydrating eye Lotion/ Drops

    Another magical product, which whitens, tired red eyes like nobodies business! Love this.

  8. Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Brilliance Mask

    Phyto is one of my favourite French hair product brands. If your hair is dehydrated and frazzled, this is the mask for you! South African can find this here http://za.strawberrynet.com/haircare/phyto/phytojoba-intense-hydrating-brilliance/140155/#DETAIL

  9. My 2 Favourite French body moisturisers

    Biotherm BAUME CORPS/ BODY BALMOIL THERAPY NUTRI-REPLENISHING BODY TREATMENTIntensely moisturizing and smells like apricots, you’ll want to eat it! Yum in a bottle!

  10. Biotherm HUILE ÉLIXIR/ OIL ELIXIR

    OIL THERAPY PRECIOUS OIL CONCENTRATEAlso smells incredible. Massage this deeply nourishing, body oil into your skin after a refreshing shower. Perfect to replenish skin after a day at the beach. Such a treat it’s like being at the Spa.
