Name: Anchal MUA
Instagram handle: @anchalmua
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?!
