Alison Hammond's makeup

We know how important a primer for mature skin is when it comes to keeping your make up on for long periods, so we’re not surprised this is an important step for Alison’s make up. Her go-to is the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Mattifying Primer True Matte which is ideal for combination to oily skin. This is an ideal primer for shine control making it perfect for filming under hot lights like the This Morning studio.

One reviewer said: “I've not used primer before, but I tried this one as I wanted a matte finish as my skin is naturally oily and get very shiny as the day goes on. I love wearing this under my foundation, it does help reduce the shine. I also love using this on my non makeup days, I can really notice the reduction in how oily and shiny my skin is.”

Hourglass are leaders in the world of makeup and particularly loved for their foundations. This foundation comes in both stick and liquid form but it’s the liquid that Alison uses. With just half a pump, you get a full coverage finish that feels weightless and still has a dewy finish which explains Alison’s glow and the hydration makes it an ideal foundation for mature skin.

One reviewer said: "Full coverage flawless finish. Tried this from a sample & fell in love! Gives me the full coverage finish I desire without looking cakey. I have an oily skin & this works perfectly for me."

According to some reports, Alison is a fan of the Huda Beauty concealer. Again, this is another longwear product, promising 14 hours of crease proof wear with medium to full coverage. It’s designed to cover dark circles, pigmentation and blemishes which makes it a brilliant concealer for mature skin and explains why Alison’s skin always looks so flawless. 

One reviewer said: “I have dry sensitive skin. Really good product looks great and blends well can be used all over really good coverage under eye and blemishes without looking dry. Colour is really good as well I looked on the online pictures on boots which tell you what colour would suit so very impressed.”

This long lasting powder is the second Fenty item you’ll find in Alison’s make up bag. It’s available in an impressive 50 shades and comes with a powder puff for application and ideal for easy touching up during advertising breaks. 

One reviewer said: “Amazing coverage! So easy to blend. I use Sigma F80 FLAT KABUKI as gives the best coverage for me but still looks natural. It is weightless, feels like no make up, no creasing or caking and for oily babes this is amazing! Love love love!!”

This is a firm favourite of all professional make up artists and is loved for its instant blurring effect with no flashback from cameras. It’s longwearing and is translucent so ideal for a range of skin tones and promises to control all day long making it one of our favourite powders for mature skin.

One reviewer said: "I LOVE the translucent loose powder in GLOW. It gives me a natural, healthy, glowy look that I adore! I get stop by people asking me how do I get my skin to look so glowy and beautiful!"

This tri-colour blush palette is idea for creating your own custom shade of blush by blending two or three of the shades together. Available in three different palette shades, we love this Berry Adore palette for darker skin tones like Alison’s.

One reviewer said: “I purchased the peachy love colors cos of the orange pink shades. I love the colors but it is too pigmented for my taste so I don roll my brush in it much and I tap that off too. I still recommend the product & would prob buy again. Might look really good for darker skin tones.

As mentioned, one of the main things we love about Alison Hammond's makeup looks are the smokey eye looks which are full of warm tones blended out to perfection. This is apparently a favourite in Alison’s make up palette and is full of caramel, chocolate, honey and toffee tones as well as some stunning shimmery shades, perfect for a party.

One reviewer said: “Easy to blend and with a good pigmentation, my favourite is definitely the mustard matte that enhances the colour of my hazel eyes. The marble one is probably too similar to the lighter metallic, but overall a good product.”

Alison Hammond's makeup wouldn't be complete without her signature glossy lip, try the Fenty Gloss which is her go to according to some reports. Not only is it nourishing for the lips, it’s also a non-stick formula with a super shiny finish plus a sweet smelling scent.

One reviewer said: “Wasn't sure about this shade since my complexion is dark, but it works perfectly! It is so sexy and lasts all night.”
