Name: Anchal MUA

Instagram handle: @anchalmua

Age: 26

Location: London, UK

Favourite Beauty Bay product: There are actually too many to pick one… ABH Modern Renaissance Palette – that’s been on EVERY holiday with me!

Average time it takes to do your makeup in the morning: It depends on how glam I’m going, but if it’s just simple…30mins? 

Top beauty tip: Stipple, stipple, stipple! I love a full coverage and flawless base but without it looking cakey – I stipple my foundation in with my Morphe G40 brush to achieve a flawless and FULL COVERAGE base.

What’s a day in the life like for you? Everyday is different! Some days are filming days, others I’m editing, going to events and meeting the lovely people behind the brands that I love!

How did you get into this line of work? I studied Special FX Makeup at uni, and self taught myself the beauty side. I started YouTube in my 2nd year of uni as there wasn’t really any brown skin tone girls I could relate to that knew their stuff! I wanted to help and inspire others just like me.

What’s your earliest beauty memory? My Auntie teaching me about tightlining when I was 14…who knew it was such a thing back then too?!

Biggest beauty mistake? Putting on a pink lip liner as an eyeliner to match my pink dress…I was 15 might I add haha! 

What three words would you use to describe your beauty look? Flawless, bold, and smoky.

What inspires you? Where do you find inspiration? I get inspiration from clothing, especially Indian clothing as it’s so colourful and intricate – as well as Instagram – there are so many creative people out there who truly inspire me to push my limits!

What are you listening to right now? Drake…obvs.

What is your idea of a perfect evening? I’m  a foodie so I love going out to try new restaurants (I have a HUGE list on my phone which I’m ticking off), but I also love a Netflix and Chill kinda night in with lots of snacks.

What is the most-used emoji on your phone? 😂 … shouldn’t this be everyones?!

This is full coverage only using the TINIEST amount – it covers up any scars or pigmentation within seconds!

This stuff is BLINDINGGGG – Definitely my favourite highlighter ever!

This melts off your makeup like no other, it’s super soothing and leaves my skin feeling amazing.

These are mini miracle workers at removing the most stubbon makeup, and you don’t even NEED a cleanser with this! I did a test for the Beauty Bay YouTube channel and I was truly shocked and amazed at how good these are!
