Here she shares the à la Carte product picks that she loves to use on her clients.

Kristina says:

"I’ve been using Cosmetics A La Carte ever since I first tried out their bespoke cruelty-free skincare & makeup products. Luxurious packaging, highest quality ingredients & fantastic colour selection. Best of all that most of their products are vegan and formulated & produced in London. I’ve tried many different brands but this remains my firm favourite."

Total Lift Off


Our rose-scented, botanically-powered micellar water cleanser leaves skin fresh, balanced and hydrated.

Kristina says "this aromatic cleanser is super great when you don't have time for several cleansing steps: it removes makeup fast and efficiently."

Rose Dew


Primer and moisturiser in one with hyaluronic acid for firmer, smoother and youthful-looking skin.

Kristina says "Gorgeous smell, feels so good on my skin. My clients fall in love with this product all the time. Great makeup base."

Secret Light "Melba"


Active botanical complexes in our serum concealer promote brighter, wide-awake eyes.

Kristina says this is the "perfect shade to neutralise dark under eyes. Easy to blend."

Silk Radiance "Ivory"


Ultrafine loose powder to set make-up, gently mattify and invisibly smooth away fine lines.

Kristina says Silk Radiance has a "non-powdery feel, sets makeup & removes oiliness without any heaviness at all"

Glow Bronzing Powder "Sunbeam"


Mineral bronzer for a natural, healthy sun-kissed look, with a sheer silky texture that's easy to build, blend and contour.

Kristina says "gorgeous natural bronzy colour that works in harmony with light and light to medium skintones"

Blush Touch "Coral"


Finely milled powder blusher in a brightening peachy coral shade.

Kristina says "This is a radiant natural blusher that so many makeup students of mine have fallen in love with."

Luminous Cream Shadow "Amour"


Shimmering pink and gold cream eyeshadow.

Kristina says: "amazingly flattering nude colour, suits so many different skin tones, blends like a dream. Great to wear on it’s own or as a base."

Moisture Plus Lipstick "Cupcake"


Glossy lipstick for a suit-all neutral lip.

Kristina says "This is a fantastic nude shade. When you want just a gentle hint of colour with a moisturising volumised finish."

Intense Volume Mascara


Award-winning, volumising black mascara for dramatic, high-impact lashes that appear visibly thicker and longer.

Kristina says "Simply the best for volume, it saves me time layering lashes. A few swipes & my lashes look defined."

"English Rose" Sheer Brilliance Lip Gloss


Suit-all nude lip gloss in an award-winning, hydrating, volumising formula.

Kristina says "This is a fantastic finishing touch for any lipstick with a gentle nudey pink tone."

Superglow Serum

Skin Prep

Apply Superglow Serum to cleansed skin at night and in the morning before Rose Dew primer and makeup for firmer, tauter and cared-for skin.

Kristina says: "I love this vitamin-C rejuvenating serum to get skin looking and feeling radiant and healthy."
