What's on my Vanity with @jessielynne_lovesbeauty
This week we catch up with Jess from @jessielynne_lovesbeauty. We talk about her makeup must-haves and she shares what items she keeps on her Geometric Vanity Tray.
If you're not already familiar with her, Jess is a self-confessed beauty addict from the Gold Coast. One of her first jobs was at Priceline which introduced her to the world of skincare and makeup. She's since worked as a Clinique Counter Manager and held several other retail positions in the beauty department. Her Instagram @jessielynne_lovesbeauty is her creative outlet to discuss all things beauty.
Hi, thanks for joining us! When did you start your Instagram and how did it come about?
Thanks so much for having me! I actually started my Instagram account four years ago as a hobby. Most of my friends weren’t as obsessed with beauty products as I was, so it was a place where I could post products I was excited about and chat to others who shared that same level of excitement. When Covid restrictions were introduced I was stood down from my job and started sharing and posting more regularly on my account. As a result it’s really grown within the last six months.
What’s your full time job? How do you juggle your time between creating content for your Instagram and your full time job?
I am a Guest Service Agent at a hotel. To be honest it's not always easy finding enough time to create all the content I want. I was reinstated at work three months ago and at first I was struggling to find the time to photograph products and engage with my followers. Now that I’ve settled back into work I’m more organised and have more of a system in place.
When did your passion for all things beauty start?
I would say my Nana inspired me when I was younger. Whenever I'd see her she would always be wearing a nice lipstick. In fact I don’t think I’ve ever seen her without lipstick in all these years. She says applying lipstick or spraying a nice perfume boosts her mood and I couldn't agree more.
What are 3 items on your Geometric Vanity Tray?
I have my favourite perfume Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Sweet, Lanolips Tinted Lip Balm in the shade Perfect Nude, and my Hanalei Sugar Lip Scrub
What are your top 3 makeup products?
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner Micro Tip - It’s by far the easiest liquid liner to use.
Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift Mascara - This mascara really opens up my eyes and gives quick lift, length and volume.
Mecca Max Zoom Shadow Stick - These are incredible! They are so creamy and pigmented yet they last the whole day!
And your top 3 skincare products?
Ultra Violet Queen Screen is my absolute favourite sunscreen.
Go-To Sheet Masks are my favourite product to achieve an instant glow.
ESK B Quenched Moisturiser - An incredible moisturiser that improves my skin's barrier function and it really helps even my skin tone and keep my redness at bay.
Lastly, could you share a makeup or skincare tip that you swear by?
Never underestimate the power of a good eyelash curler. It can make a huge difference to the eyes, making them look more open and awake.
