"My approach to beauty is about trying to look really, really natural," laughs Vanessa Barneby, whose days as co-founder of Barneby Gates, the beloved British wallpaper studio, are filled with Zoom calls and, in less surreal times, multiple site visits. She relies on breezy, portable staples and seamless blending tools for the ultimate no makeup-makeup look. Here, she shares what's always in her bag, including her beloved Lit Up Highlight stick. "I can't live without it."
"Rhug Wild Beauty is based on a beautiful organic estate in Wales and they forage all of the natural products there. I use a lovely cleanser, toner, hyaluronic acid serum, and a good rich moisturizer for the evening."
"I love that kind of highlighter that just lifts your skin and makes you glow and look fresh. Lit Up Highlight Stick has literally transformed my life. It’s that one thing that I have in my bag. Even if I'm not wearing any makeup, just popping it on is incredible."
"I don't have totally amazing skin so I need to use either tinted serum or a very light foundation. I'm a combination of oily and dry, so the key to making sure that products don't sit on top of my skin is how I apply it. The Westman Atelier brushes are really amazing at helping with that natural look."
