Beauty | Peek Into A Model Make Up Bag
Model Saffi Karina gives makeup artist and contributing beauty editor Salina Thind the lowdown on what’s in her make up bag, the little secrets of a model!
When it comes to make-up I couldn’t be more nosey, I’m always asking clients what products they love to use and what they couldn’t live without. I’ve worked with model Saffi Karina on various shoots over the last few years and she seems to love make-up just as much as me. When she’s not modelling Saffi is working on her business CURVE PROJECT LONDON (www.curveprojectlondon.com) – the UK’s first Body Confidence Masterclass/Model workshop run by industry professionals.
“Like most women I hoard copious amounts of beauty products – many of which I never get round to using.  Here are a few of my staple make-up must haves that I DO use regularly from castings to everyday,” Saffi admits.
NARS Tinted Moisturizer in CUBA 
Saffi: When I’m not shooting I find foundations too heavy for my skin and prefer light coverage, so I always opt for a tinted moisturizer instead. This tinted moisturizer gives a nice dewy glowe to skin and looks so natural no one would even guess you had anything on. I’m naturally quite tanned with a yellow under tone and this colour match is spot on for my complexion.
MAC Retractable brow pencil in LINGERING
Salina: The MAC brow pencils are a staple in a lot of make-up artists’ kits and I think this is down to the colour range, the shades just seem to work perfectly. FLING is a great shade for those of you who are lighter haired.
LAURA MERCIER Secret Brightening Powder
Saffi: Great for covering my oily t-zone and brightening under the eyes. This product is very light, practically invisible, and gives fantastic coverage.
CHANEL Soleil Tan De Chanel
Saffi: It gives a beautifully natural sun kissed glow to skin without looking muddy. I fell in love with this product on a shoot and bought it straight after!
GIORGIO ARMANI Eyes To Kill Mascara
Salina: Lengthens, thickens and doesn’t smudge or flake. Having used this product I can also vouch for its abilities! A lovely mascara to give you great dramatic lashes.
NARS Illuminator in Orgasm (liquid)
Salina: It adds a nice sheen to cheeks with a soft coral luminescence. Another make-up artist favourite, this is some artist’s highlighter of choice! Another bonus is that it flatters any skintone.
BOBBI BROWN Long Wear Gel Eyeliner
Saffi: This is a long wearing liner that lasts all day and doesn’t crease. Does what it says on the tin and I also love the multitude of shades that flatter all eye colours.
NARS Lola Lola Eyeshadow
Saffi: The perfect subtle shade of copper that gives a nice smoky eye for daytime.
MAC Morange Lipstick
Saffi: I love an orange lip as soon as the sun comes out and this is my go to summer shade. It’s quite creamy so is best used with a lip liner to keep it in place.
Salina: It’s another make-up artist favourite and seen gracing the lips of pop stars like Rihanna and Jessie J!
NARS Train Bleu Lipstick Pencil
Saffi: I’m a fan of  dark vampy lips for evenings out and love this deep purple-burgundy shade. It also lasts for several hours which is great when you’re at dinner.
Salina: These NARS pencils are great for giving long wearing, intense, matte colour. The shade Cruella was a gorgeous red used on Kelly Rowland when she was on our screens for X-Factor.
