Jen Bishop, makeup, beauty, lulu and lipstick

We met with former journalist and magazine editor, Jen Bishop, the full-time interior design blogger behind The Interiors Addict. Jen takes us into her world of beauty and shares her favourite products and beauty tips.

I’ve been a makeup addict since forever and developed a penchant for expensive cosmetics when I was a teenager. I absolutely love lipstick and I have never embraced the natural look!

makeup, beauty, anti-aging, lulu and lipstickSo what would we see in your makeup bag on a regular day? NARS Sheer Glow foundation, a variety of lipsticks, YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils mascara, NARS Orgasm blush, Australis Fresh & Flawless pressed powder (incidentally, one of the cheapest and best I’ve discovered!), and whichever black eyeliner I’m currently trialling in my quest to find “the one” (still searching). I am obsessed with brow products like Anastasia Beverly Hills and finally, I have the Lulu & Lipstick’s signature brush set, which I love and keep clean with daily brush cleaner.

We’re obsessed with bold lashes at the moment, what are you crazy about? Bold lipstick. It’s my thing. I feel naked without it! I’ve never been a lip gloss girl. And brows; they frame your face and make such a difference. Don’t over-pluck!

What hot makeup trends are you loving this spring/summer? I love seeing more people conquer their fear of lipstick and give it a go. Lipstick makes everything better! I’m always buying new ones. Lime Crime lipstick in Centrifuschia is on my wish list for Christmas!

How do you look after your beautiful skin? For me, as an English rose living in Australia, that mainly means sunscreen, sunscreen and more sunscreen! I love Ultraceuticals Ultra UV Protective Daily Moisturiser SPF 50+.

Are there any ‘luxury’ beauty item that you love splurge on? I don’t think you should ever scrimp on foundation.

At Lulu and Lipstick, our beauty icons are Blake Lively, Lana Del Ray and of course Kim K , who are yours? Miranda Kerr, Michelle Williams, Gwen Stefani and Reece Witherspoon all wear makeup really well.

This season we are lusting over Mermaid Perfume shampoo and conditioner, Beetox Facemask and Velour Lashes worn by Beyonce! What are your top 3 Lulu and Lipstick last-after beauty products? Anastasia Beverley Hills Dip Brow Pomade in Medium Brown, Tata Harper Restorative Eye Creme and Pevonia Botanica Mystique Escape Bath Salts (did I mention I’m obsessed with baths?)

Thank you Jen for taking us into the world of beauty and makeup and sharing some of your favourite products!

Love Lulu
