Sophie's All Time Favourites

The beautiful best

Chelsea designer Sophie Stanbury loves to try new looks and change up her colours with the seasons. But there are some things she is never without.

For a natural glowing look that's great for busy London days and relaxed weekends.

Sophie says:

"As a busy working mother finding the perfect everyday makeup which is easy to use and creates a lovely natural dewy complexion is very important to me. Since being introduced to Cosmetics a La Carte not only have I found the perfect tones, textures and long lasting gorgeous finish but I have also developed the perfect pinky nude lipstick which I am super excited to share with you.

I have hand picked my favourites from the fabulous collection and I can safely say the quality, the use of good ingredients with no nasty chemicals and the lovely textures of these has given me a flawless natural illumination that I will wear everyday. I have found it hard in the past to find products that don’t make me look overly made up or caked.

I stand by the less is more approach, enhancing what you have and correcting fine lines while not leaving cracks and creating a lovely healthy glow that gives you confidence and a fresh appearance. I hope you enjoy the lovely glowing collection I have picked and feel happy and confident!"

"Romantic Rose"
A fresh baby pink that Sophie loves just as much every day as on special occasions.
Luminous Cream Shadow "Amour"
On the eyes she wears dusky pink cream eyeshadow in "Amour"
Eyeliner Pencil "Sienna"

Along the lashline and into a feline flick it’s Sophie’s favourite Superwear Gel Eyeliner pencil in “Sienna”.

Bare Blush "Orchid"
Sophie's a fan of a pop of cream blush for a pretty flourish for every day, and she loves the light refreshing peachy pink of Orchid.
Champagne Nudes Eyeshadow Palette

Curated specially by Sophie herself, this is a selection of 6 ultra-wearable shades of mineral eyeshadow to create radiant looks for day and night. Sophie loves the brightening, lifting effect of the neutral shimmering highlighter shades and using the subtle burnished golden and bronze accent colours for a smokier effect. Scroll down for info on the brushes Sophie uses.

Blush Touch "Coral"
For the days when Sophie would rather look peachy than pink, mineral blusher is the way to go. "Coral" is brightening and beautiful on Sophie's skin tone, and can be built from subtle to a statement flush.
Glow Bronzing Powder "Sunbeam"
For bronzer Sophie loves the subtle golden glow of "Sunbeam". Couldn't be easier to apply and blend for a radiant finish.
Weightless Cream Foundation "Goldhoney"
As her medium to full coverage base that works just as well every day as for special events, Sophie applies our award-winning Weightless Cream Foundation in "Goldhoney" with a light, comfortable cream-to-powder formula and a velvety fresh finish.
Future Flawless Concealer "Sand"

Under the eyes Sophie applies Future Flawless Concealer in “Sand” to vanish any persistent shadows. It can also be used to add coverage anywhere on the face.

English Rose Gloss
Alone or over her lipstick, Sophie wears Limited Edition “English Rose” Lip Gloss for a brilliant fresh shine that leaves lips silky smooth and hydrated. Our Sheer Brilliance formula won a Beauty Bible award in 2021!
Rapid Renew Eye Serum
Sophie preps and refreshes her eyes before makeup with Rapid Renew Eye Serum, a cooling gel in a convenient rollerball with Hyaluronic Acid, Ceramides and Vitamin B3 to hydrate, tone and guard against undereye puffiness.
