Each morning we wake up and scour the Internet in an effort to collect and study the best celebrity beauty looks. Lately, we’ve been crushing on actress Michelle Mosalakae’s fave look. She rocks the cat-eye and bold lip combo with ease.
“Make-up doesn’t give me confidence – it just adds to my confidence,” says Michelle. Want some of that? Well, here’s the good news: we chatted to her Revlon team to find out which 10 products Michelle uses on the reg. Serious beauty inspo loading…
“I started with a good foundation and then it moved to a nude lip,” reveals Michelle about her make-up habits. “I don’t play around with a lot of colour, but because I do a lot of shoots, they push me a bit – that’s why I’m open to a lot of looks; but just slowly.”
This is the ultimate lip prep for smooth and hydrated lips. It’s an all-in-one lip balm and scrub that’s perfect for Michelle before shoots and events!
And when Michelle isn’t shooting? The Revlon balm stains are the perfect lip stains for just a flush of colour! Each of the five new shades comes with an iridescent shimmer and impressive pH-reacting pigments that customise the colour according to the lips wearing them.
5. Revlon Matte Is Everything By Super Lustrous, R120
If matte lips are more your thing then you need to try Revlon’s new Matte is Everything By Super Lustrous. These lipsticks are easy to wear, day or night and feel super comfy on the lips – no caking here! They come in 12 bold colours from nude all the way to deep berry shades. Make like Michelle and rock a natural neutral Dare to be Nude lip colour.
“My no-no in terms of make-up is too much make-up. I don’t want to look like ‘woooow, she’s got on make-up’,” says Michelle (and amen to that!). “I love the cat-eye. I haven’t mastered the skill but I’m brave and pencil in one line. I don’t always use a black liner. I use a brown one too – just so it lifts the eye.”
These crème eyeshadows come with an applicator brush for a mess-free easy application. Here Michelle wears the Bold Cognac, Bold Stardust and Bold Tuxedo shades.
For Michelle, mascara has always been a staple. “I started playing with make-up last year. I never used to wear make-up at all – the only thing I used to wear was mascara,” she tells WH. “I started mainly because I was on camera and learnt from the make-up artists.” Michelle’s team reveals that she loves the ultra-creamy, quick building formula in this mascara, which is really effectively applied thanks to this the Volumazing’s unique brush – designed with mini reservoirs and wavy, velvet bristles to hug every lash curve.
What’s a good look without a signature scent? Revlon’s Pink Happiness collection is all about celebrating your dreams and aspirations, something that is close to Michelle’s own success story. The fragrance perfectly balances an Oriental fruity bouquet with grapefruit, blackcurrant and apricot. Oriental spices, peppercorns and vanilla notes also give this scent a sensual edge.
