Ana Bastos: My 15 favourite beauty products


by Ana Bastos
04th Aug 2022

Creator Ana Bastos, @itsmeanab_, on her go-to skincare, signature scent and the calming mist she uses every hour.

Mitchum Deodorant, €4.80

This is the best pharmacy deodorant in my opinion, from the gym to anxiety sweating it has my back 100%.

Dermalogica Precleanse Cleanser, €49

This is my go-to cleanser, I feel in heaven after using it and I can remove it gently and easily.

Bacana Serenity Vitamin Mist Toner, €23

I don’t like to use a lot of skincare products but toner is something I make sure to use twice daily. It’s the best I’ve ever had, fresh and the smell is amazing.

The Ordinary Buffet Serum, €31.20

Black don’t crack but it’s important to look after my skin. I use this daily and I can really see the difference instantaneously.

La Roche-Posay Invisible Fluid SPF 50+ Suncream, €15.60

Cheap and perfect for my dark oily skin. I apply every 3 hours and don’t get spots.

Lancôme Hypnose Mascara, €34

I hate clumping lashes and this is the best mascara in my opinion. I’ve been using it for years and counting.

Maybelline Instant Anti Age Eraser Eye Concealer, €11.99

Flawless coverage, it helps me to minimise the appearance of fine lines and it doesn’t crack under the eyes.

MAC Studio Fix Powder, €36

A classic. Various shades, photo-friendly and gives me a healthy look.

Cantu Curl Activator, €9.49

Great for my thin afro. My hair looks shiny but not greasy, I only need a little. It works beautifully.

Nars Orgasm Blush, €33

Natural look, lightweight and actually it’s multi-use. I can also use it on our eyes, lips, body.

Primark PS Lip Plumper, €3.50

Every time I put it on people ask me if I’ve lip filler on. The effect is amazing and lasts a long time.

Benefit 24 Hour Brow Setter Gel, €26

It’s my favourite product in my bag – a brow gel that helps me to shape and sculpt wildly.

Nivea Firming Lotion, €4.99

Every single day you will see me using it. It isn’t oily and I don’t get grey elbows or knees all day long.

Avène Thermal Spring Water Spray, €9.50

My every hour time! It’s amazing how this product makes me feel. I feel expensive and calm.

Chloé Eau De Parfum, 30ml, €61

Well, that’s my smell forever. Sexy, confident and long-lasting. PS: it’s the only perfume that stays on my skin.
