A killer smokey eye, brushed up brows, subdued lips, pinky cheeks and always bronzed… add some beachy waves and Elle Ferguson is ready to step out. And it’s a look we never grow tired of. In fact, it’s a look we aspire to on the reg. So much so that we decided to take a little peek inside her makeup bag to see just what steps she takes (and what products she uses) to get that ‘Elle Effect’.
“For me, I love mixing brands from high luxury beauty brands to cheaper more accessible brands. I’m super lucky that I get to work with some amazing makeup artists and I ALWAYS ask questions as they are painting my face… I love learning about beauty… I’m that girl that loves to read all the beauty articles! But I have learnt what works for my skin and what makes Elle have her Elle Effect – and that’s why I wanted to share it with you…”
