MY BEAUTY SECRETS

MY BEAUTY SECRETS

 

For those of you that missed it, here is my beauty Q & A that was in last weeks New Zealand Womens Weekly.

My beauty philosophy is…

Makeup & Hair can completely transform a woman, but nothing shines through like glowing good health. Working for most of my life as a makeup artist has shown me that even though cosmetics can deliver miraculous results, beauty really does start from the inside.

The skincare products I cant live without are…

 

I have very sensitive skin so I need products that are mild & fragrance free. I have used Cliniques Dramatically Different Moisturizer for years along with Cetaphil Cleanser. For extra nourishment I love Kiehls Cryste Marine Firming Cream & Kiehls Ultra Facial Moistirizer.

My haircare secret is…

My hair is ultra thick & curly so it takes alot to tame it! For the past year I have been having ‘The Permanent Blow Wave’ which is a rich Keratin treatment that relaxes unruly hair. It lasts about four months & takes all the frizz out of my hair. My favorite styling products are Paul Mitchell Sculpting Foam & the brilliant Moroccan Oil.

The ‘must have’ products in my makeup bag are…

Im pretty fuss free with my own makeup (my professional kit is another story!) & tend to stick with my favorite products on a day to day basis. For foundation I use Clinique Super Balanced Makeup & Jane Iredale Mineral Powder, then in the summer I love Bobbi Browns Tinted Balm SPF25. Then theres my MAC eye pencils (‘Minted’ is a fave bright jade), Maybelline mascara, my Bobbi Brown brushes, MAC Mineralize blush & Elizabeth Arden ‘Sable’ brow makeup. For my lips I keep it simple with Lucas Paw Paw or Jane Iredale clear gloss.

My favorite beauty treat is…

Beauty wise I tend to do everything myself, but getting a salon wash & blow wave has to be the ultimate luxury- plus it lasts a week! I also treat myself to the occasional pedicure & love the results.

My biggest beauty sin is…

I have to confess to being a sunlover & spent most of my teens & twenties enjoying a golden tan. Fortunately I came to my senses many years ago, but still enjoy the sun- covered in a good SPF 30!

The best thing my mother taught me was…

That you must cleanse your face & remove your makeup every night- no matter how late, as sleeping with your face on is the worst beauty sin. Oh, & never leave the house without a touch of makeup as you never know who you may run into!
