What's in my makeup bag? Erica Cody

Having a rummage through some of our favourite faces’ wares.

Each week, we’ll be taking a peek into some of our faves’ makeup bags to see their must-have products, because we’re nosey. This week, it’s the turn of singer Erica Cody.

Her earliest makeup memories

“My earliest make-up memories go back to when I actually started to take an interest in make-up when I was around 16. I never wore much make up, but when I had a sneak peak through my aunt’s make-up drawer one day I pretty much fell in love.

She had all the best products from primer to mascara and brushes to die for. Whenever I would stay over in her house I would always experiment with her different powders and eyeshadows because I never had worn foundation before then so powders and blush became my new best friends.

“As time went on and I got more familiar and confident with make-up, my aunt then used to ask me to give her a good smokey eye because it’s what I loved doing the most and I got quite good at it!

“When i was about 17, I started using foundation then and I fell in love with doing my make-up and it was something I looked forward to doing.

Now at 21, after wearing make-up properly for around four and a half years, my signature look has become slightly more minimal – due to eyelash extensions and being so busy I only ever have time for make-up if its for a shoot or a show!”

“So when I released my debut single ‘Addicted’ earlier this year, my nana got real cute one day shopping in town and bought me, myself and my mom matching ‘Addicted’  bags.”
