My Day in Beauty with Estée Lalonde: ‘I swear by these to apply my foundation’

Canadian born, London based vlogger Estée Lalonde is known for her realness, her sense of style and her flawless skin. Along with her adorable dog Reggie, she's taking over YouTube, Instagram and even the world of podcasts with her ever-relatable content and honest outlook on life. When it comes to beauty, she KNOWS. And so these are recommendations worth taking...

"If I’m working from home, I tend to always focus on my skincare a lot more than my makeup," Estée explains. "I like to use a mask in the morning if I have a bit of extra time. My makeup is always quite natural looking, so if I’m going out for a meeting I tend to use a tinted moisturiser, a little bit of mascara, brow gel of course and a tinted lip balm." Less is more for Estée and that's something we can get on board with.
