Ambika's top 10 makeup products

I’m so lucky to be surrounded by people who are obsessed with skincare, makeup, and everything beauty related. Ambika Muttoo is the editor of iDiva, and man, does she know about makeup. Whenever I’m confused about the new cult lipstick or eyesdahow, I always turn to Ambika to find out if it really works. Because if there’s anything in the market that’s reaching cult status, chances are that Ambika’s already tried it. So here are her top 10 makeup products, in her own words.  

Giorgio Armani Lip Mastro in 402
The truest red. The best texture and while it’s transferable, it fades into a beautiful stain.

Glossier Generation G in Crush
Favourite everyday lip. I have gone through two tubes of this.

Diorskin Nude BB Cream
Just makes you face look completely smooth but it’s also moisturising.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light
It’s like you've captured the sunset on your face. Beautifully product, super finely-milled.

Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer
For a zit that can be seen from the moon, this is like the gift that god gave you. You just need a needle’s pin point to cover up the zit. It’s like the makeup version of photoshop.


Cle de Peau Concealer
Great for the under eye because it never settles into the creases, super luxe and great camouflage.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Diffused Heat
It’s just a cloud of colour. You couldn't overdo it if you tried.

Lancôme Grandiose Extreme Mascara
The brush feels like the best pushup bra for lashes.

Anastasia Brow Wiz
It’s so fine that you can never look clownish with this. 


New CID Cosmetics Cream Eyeshadow in Crystal Quartz
The most flattering champagne on every single skin tone in the world.
