Maya Jama's makeup routine is bursting with viral products

The 'Love Island' UK host is clued-up

July 20 2023

Maya Jama has it all figured out. She's managed to land herself a well-paying job that requires one quick TV appearance per week and relocating to sunny Mallorca, Spain for three months each year. Find us a job more appealing than that, we'll wait.

In saying that, however dreamy Jama's version of a nine-to-five may seem, there's one thing we can agree on: she's the right lady for the job (and she looks damn good doing it). 

In fact, Jama's hair and makeup looks have become so highly anticipated, they often overshadow the news of which Islander is exiting the villa that week.

Fortunately for us, Letitia Sophia, Jama's talented longtime makeup artist, has generously provided a sneak peek into the lineup of products used to achieve the British beauty's glowing glam. 

And you'll be interested to know that sitting among the smorgasbord of makeup are several viral sensations...


Although we're still waiting for the complete video tutorial to drop, we'll take what we can get in the interim. And what we've got is the Kylie Cosmetics Pressed Powder Blush in 'Winter Kiss' ($32 at MECCA)This exact shade was collaboratively crafted by Kylie Jenner and her makeup artist, Ariel Tejada.

We’ve kind of developed that colour together; it’s like a true blue pink," Ariel told BEAUTYcrew.

Both shades of the Dior Rosy Glow Blush ($69 at Sephora) sat amongst the makeup flat lay, as did the Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Sun-Kissed Glow Bronzer ($75 at Charlotte Tilbury).

As for Jama's complexion, those with a keen eye would likely have spotted the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ($51 at MECCA), MAC's Studio Finish Concealer ($49.55 at Amazon) and of course, that iconic lilac bottle sitting up the back: Tatcha's Luminous Dewy Skin Mist ($79 at MECCA).

As confirmed in an Instagram caption by Letitia, some of the key contributors to Jama's consistently stunning glam include the Fenty Gloss Bomb Drip Cream ($37 at Sephora), plus another notoriously sold-out product: the Makeup By Mario Master Mattes Eyeshadow Palette ($83 at Sephora).

Sure, there mightn't be anything totally left of field, no budget-friendly gems or emerging newcomers, but we still love to see that some of our faves are cherished just as much by industry professionals as they are by us.
