Kaz Kamwi is booked and pressure. Since appearing on Love Island in 2021 (and reaching the finals) Kamwi has developed a huge social media presence, worked on a number of collaborations with major brands and appeared on our television screens. If you haven’t looked Celebrity Karaoke Club where she sings alongside Justin Bieber’s “Baby”. sell sunset‘s Chrisshell Stause, you are seriously missing out.

For her latest collaboration, Kamwi has teamed up with Easilocks, a hair extension brand loved by the likes of Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Christina Aguilera and the Hadids, to produce a collection of textured wigs, extensions and clip-in hair products. “The most common things I get asked when it comes to beauty – especially when I was at the villa – is around my hair and how I style it,” she tells me, “so to release a collection with texture with Easilocks is just great.” The development process was one that Kamwi was deeply involved in, she explains, because she wanted products that would allow people to do it “easy” with her. and fast.”

However, choosing the pieces to include in the collection was more difficult than she thought. “I was sent a lot of samples and I looked at everything thinking: how am I supposed to limit this? It’s like trying to make someone choose between their favorite chocolates, almost impossible!”

Kamwi’s own hair journey has been one of ups and downs. The 27-year-old chemically straightened her hair from a young age to make styling easier for school, but decided to go back to her natural hair at age 15. “I have always loved my hair. I just found it really hard to style it and the easiest way for me to keep it was protective styles hence I started rooting it and keeping it that way for about two weeks. I have enjoyed my hair journey over the years discovering different styles and products. And I always tell people: it’s all a journey and the journey continues.”

The same goes for beauty. Recalling her very first makeup purchase – Maybelline’s Dream Matte Mousse foundation – Kamwi can’t help but think about how far the beauty industry has come. “I’m pretty sure everyone had the Dream Matte Mousse foundation, such a trend from the early ’00s. The nostalgia. But foundation was a real struggle for me and I was definitely wearing a shade that wasn’t mine. My pictures looking back are just shocking. Now, thankfully, she can walk into a store and find a foundation shade that matches her skin tone.

Below, Kamwi shares her ultimate beauty essentials, including the lip gloss she just can’t live without and the scent everyone craves.

Her go-to wig for every occasion

“I started wearing wigs in college and quickly realized how versatile they were. Can I have long hair today and a bob tomorrow? Register now. I like to play with different hairstyles. And it makes things fast for me. It takes me ages to get ready, so it’s a blessing. I love the headband wig, it’s quick and easy for errands or days when I can’t be bothered to style my hair, and it looks like a salon finish. I can’t stop wearing it.”

Her morning staple

“So, just in case I’ve missed something in my nighttime skincare routine, I always use cleansing balms. A favorite of mine is the ELEMIS cleansing balm, it’s great for making sure my face is completely clean before applying makeup.”

An essential lip

“I am a lip gloss gal. I can’t live without my Dior Addict. In fact, I only use the clear version when I’m just not wearing any products or makeup. It will be my top-up of gloss if I wear a bit of color too. I always wear it, whatever the occasion.”

Her Go-To Base

“My current go-to foundation is the IRL Filter Longwear foundation from Makeup Revolution. It lasts all day and literally doesn’t budge. I can come home from a long day and my base coat looks the same as when I first applied it in the morning. I use it on my minimal makeup days and my glamorous looks, versatile and long lasting, definitely a staple in my makeup bag.

Her signature scent

“People always compliment me on my fragrance and I always get questions about what it is. This fragrance smells so luscious and so good. I always tell everyone to buy this Dior fragrance and just stop using it, it’s perfect. I have bought it so many times over the years. Even in the Love Island villa, the girls asked me what fragrance I was wearing, and I always told them, if you don’t buy this, you’re playing fair to yourself.

Her skincare product she couldn’t live without

“I still use Skin Food because it’s such a great primer, but it’s also just so good for my skin in general. My skin feels incredibly hydrated and hydrated after using it, it’s a constant in both my skincare routine and my makeup bag.”
