EW’s Fashion and Beauty Assistant Alexandra shares the modest make-up wonders she couldn’t live without.

A few of my favourite things…

1. Nail Paint Dhs30 Barry M at Boots Pharmacy

 “Long-lasting and in a huge palette of colours, from bold to glitter, it’s a whole new world of nail love. I have over 20 different colours.”

2. Le Crayon Sourcils Dhs94 Lancôme at Bloomingdale’s

“It’s all about the power brow this season. This is one of the easiest eyebrow tools to master. Fill in the gaps and go as bold as you dare.”

3.  PhotoReady  Prime + Brightener Dhs69 Revlon at Boots Pharmacy

 “Conceal tired eyes with this lightweight and silky formula. It’s an instant pick-me-up that lasts all day.”

4. Eyeshadow Brush Dhs29 H&M

“You’d never think of H&M when buying make-up brushes but they’re just as good as those twice the price and you don’t have to feel guilty when replacing them.”

5. Dry Shampoo Dhs25 Batiste at Boots Pharmacy

“My hair savior: work into your roots for a voluminous and fresh look.”

6. Falsies Volume Express Mascara Dhs45 Maybelline at Lifestyle

“It’s been on the market for a while, with many new competitors, but to me it still reigns supreme. Even with just one coat, lashes look fuller.”
