If you've ever wanted to know what's really inside the makeup bags of the most stylish women in the industry, you're in luck. We've created a new column, Show Me the (Makeup) Money, to uncover the beauty products our fashion friends genuinely keep in their daily rotation—and how much their stash actually costs. I'll be delving inside their bags on your behalf and totting up every item in there, from the most expensive to the cheapest. Not only will you be left with an incredible shopping list, but also a realistic price tag to boot. Is there someone whose makeup bag you're dying to see inside? Slide into my Instagram DMs with your requests, and I'll see what I can do. This month, we're delving inside the everyday makeup bag of DJ, yogi and founder of Fat Buddha Yoga, Jessica Skye.
Not only is Jessica Skye already one of the busiest yoga instructors in the capital (and a Nike yoga ambassador FYI), but she's also found the time to launch Fat Buddha Yoga—a pop-up community that host yoga classes in urban locations soundtracked by cool, electronic beats. Alongside her quest to give yoga a modern upgrade for the next generation of wellness seekers, Syke is also a self-confessed music maker and can be spotted behind the decks of everywhere from Ministry of Sound to Soho House. Yet, despite her jam-packed schedule, Skye has the glowiest skin I've ever had the pleasure of seeing up close—trust me. So I couldn't wait to see which skincare and makeup products she uses on a daily basis.
With a focus on purifying skincare and skin-brightening makeup, keep scrolling to shop Jessica's everyday beauty favourites (totalling £380) for yourself.
"This jelly turns into an oil as your massage it in, dissolving makeup and emulsifying when water is added."
"I'm a double cleanse girl, so after makeup is removed I like to deep cleanse the skin. This is free from nasties and contains salicylic acid (aka BHA) to keep my pores clear."
"When I first got these I was scared to use them—the fact it was a peel worried me. But in all honesty, they have changed my skin, and it's the best product I've used to keep skin clear. It exfoliates dead skin and stops congestion building up from product, makeup, sweat and pollution. I can't recommend them enough if you get congested skin."
"If you don't have a good diet and proper nutrients, this will show in your skin (and of course your general health). It's best to get nutrients from food, but a little boost here and there doesn't hurt—especially if travelling or going through intense periods of work."
"One thing I've learnt from treatments at FaceGym is the importance of circulation in the face for good skin, as well as good facial muscle tone, Without this, it doesn't matter what you rub into your skin. And that's not to mention a healthy diet so the blood that is coming to the skin is nutrient-rich and healthy."
"This really is great and contains vitamin C as well as brightening pigments. It instantly adds glow!"
"This is a makeup bag OG! It offers hydration, light coverage and adds instant glow—I swear by it."
"This is a great mascara— not too heavy or clumpy."
"I'm obsessed with these tinted lip balms. They smell amazing and give a gorgeous bit of colour without being over the top. Perfect for day time and when teaching yoga."
"I love a red lip! When I saw Milk had a collab with Wu Tang, I obviously pulled every string to get one as they don't stock this one in the UK at the moment. The texture and colour are really lovely!"
