We love her, you guys <3 her, and one of the things we knew we wanted to get Pippa to dish when we asked her to guest edit the August issue of STELLAR was what exactly she uses make-up and beauty-wise. Because basically, we needed to go out and buy it all so we could copy her.

In the issue, Pippa’s got a gorgeous photoshoot of some of her top picks; and we’re expanding on it here. Enjoy – and hide your credit card, eh?

Stila 10-in-1 beauty balm

“Especially for summertime, it’s just a really good alternative to foundation – there’s a tiny bit of coverage and it’s SPF30.” [pictured above]

Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm

“It’s only about €12 and it’s the best. Loads of lip balms actually dry my lips out but that one doesn’t, it’s great.”

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Soft & Gentle Highlighter

“It’s a really gorgeous highlighter. It’s not too glittery, it’s subtle but effective.” [pictured above]

Charlotte Tilbury Super Model Body

“It’s a product for your legs, to make them kind of shiny. It’s ridiculously expensive, but I haven’t found anything as good as it. It elongates the leg and gives a really nice shine.” [pictured above]

Stila Stay All Day Foundation

“It actually does stay all day. It has really good durability and good, buildable coverage. I like light coverage during the day, but you can build on it to get a bit more for night-time. It’s lovely.”

Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche

“My mam always wore Chanel No. 5, which I find a bit heavy, but I like Chance for summer, it’s lovely and light.” [pictured above]

The Pippa Palette by Blank Canvas

“It has six everyday eyeshadows for every skintone, to create a daytime or a more dramatic night-time look, and a highlighter, blush and contour colour. It’s such a handy palette, and it has a mirror too.” [pictured above – and check out our review right here.]

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream

“This is an American brand, they have some gorgeous products. I love this intense moisturiser. It’s good for very sensitive skin because it’s fragrance-free, and really gentle on the skin. It does the job very nicely, and they have lovely travel sizes too.”

Rimmel ScandalEyes Extreme

“I love all mascaras, but at the moment I’m using this. It’s cheap and really, really good.” [pictured above]

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer

“It’s unbelievable for underneath your eyes, spots, anything. It’s really lightweight, the best one I’ve ever used.”

Blank Canvas brushes

“All my brushes are Blank Canvas – I started using them a few years ago because they were much cheaper than the bigger brands. They’ve a really good one called the F20 [pictured above], a flat, buffer brush that applies foundation really seamlessly. You use much less foundation with it as well.”

Glam Glow Thirsty Mud

“I love the mud one, especially for summer, if you’re travelling. I’m using the Thirsy Mud hydrating one – it’s great after travelling, if you’re dehydrated. You leave it on overnight and wash it off in the morning, it really does work.” [pictured above]

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush

“I bought this America, I don’t think we have it here, I got a really nice peachy, coral colour – it really suits my skin tone.”

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade

“I love some of their products. This is the eyebrow gel – I use a flat eyeliner brush from Blank Canvas to apply it. They’ve loads of different shades. I always do my eyebrows, even if I’m not wearing much make-up. I look a bit crazy if I don’t!”

Stila Lip Glaze

“I love all the Stila Lip Glazes – they’re really nice and natural and light, not too sticky. At Christmas time I got about 12 in a set, so I’ve been using them since.”

MAC Lipliner and Lipstick

“I went and bought the Kylie Jenner duo – Soar Lipliner by MAC and Braise lipstick. They’re really nice. I think overdrawing your lips can be done effectively, if it’s subtle – but there’s nothing worse than when you see it way, way overdone. I cringe when I see people do that, especially on Instagram.” [pictured above]

Clarins Handcream

“I always have a handcream on me, too – I have a Clarins one that’s a million years old now.”

Elnett hairspray

“I always have a backcombing brush – and a mini bottle of of Elnett, as well!”
