Call it shallow, call it superficial, but you can’t deny a bit of concealer and slick of red lippie can give you an undeniable surge of confidence. But, finding what works is tricky - what looks good on your mate doesn't always translate to a make-up victory for you.  That’s why we made Powder, so we could find the best products out there and then match you up with ones that will work for you.  And it seems we’re not the only ones seeking products with our name on it – after meeting beauty blogger, Samantha Maria herself, we loved how Sammi experiments and tests out products and make-up looks until she finds one that works for her. 

Sammi says: ‘Keep playing around with make-up until you find what you feel most confident in. I was inspired by the punk-rock era from a young age, which is probably why eyeliner turned out to be my beauty best friend. I love a signature flick, but I also put a lot of time into creating my base – I like to invest in a good foundation that gives a natural, healthy glow to my skin.’

Knowledge is power - here's a girl who knows what she likes and we couldn’t wait to see what had passed her tests and is sitting in her beauty drawer…

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation: ‘It gives me natural, healthy-looking skin and lasts all day.’

MAC Lipstick in Russian Red: ‘My go-to red lip. Fact. It’s the perfect shade for me and it’s like having a loaded gun on you – I feel empowered wearing it.’ 

L'Oréal Paris Super Liner Perfect Slim Intense: ‘It’s jet-black and super easy to work with. This is another product that lasts right through from day into night.’

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow: ‘I love both the powder and cream version of this product. I never go a day without using this - it sculpts the face while giving you an ethereal, healthy glow.’ 

Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm: ‘As soon as I used this I knew I couldn’t be without it again. It gets off all my makeup so quickly, easily and gently. It’s so effective.’
