Want to know what’s inside our make-up bag? EW’s Alexandra exposes the office beauty essentials she wouldn’t leave the house without. 


1. Eyes: L’oreal’s Volume Million Lashes Excess Dhs90

“One of the best non-clumping mascaras I’ve tried. After just one coat you can expect longer, thicker lashes!”

2. Brows: Rimmel London Professional Eyebrow Pencil Dhs17

“This is a great everyday brow brush. The colour is perfect for brunettes and the brush on the end is an added bonus.”

3. Hair: Batiste Dhs25

“If you haven’t tried Batiste, get on it ASAP. This is the best dry hair shampoo on the market. Spritz this scented powder onto your roots, brush through and volia, your blow-dry will last at an extra day or two!”

4. Complexion: L’Oreal Infallible FoundationDhs90

“This foundation offers the perfect daytime coverage and lasts me all day.” 

5. Lips: Palmers Coco Butter Lip Dhs12

“Simple and smells delicious. I’m a massive fan of the body moisturiser so as soon as the lip balm was launched I was hooked.”
