What does your skincare routine consist of?
I’d like to think my routine is simple yet smart for my skin. My saving graces are Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser, $26, Kiehl’s, The Jojoba Company 100% Natural Australian Jojoba, from $19.95, 02 9651 3030 (it’s a fabulous base and can be applied all over the body. I love it for my hands and cuticles also), Ella Baché Special Eye Cream, $73, Ella Baché, (it’s so lightweight and hydrating) and finally my ‘can’t live without’ Dove Protective Tinted Moisturiser SPF15, $10.52, from supermarkets and pharmacies.
How do you take care of your hair?
I’m not a big conditioner user but I love KMS California COLORVITALITY Blonde Shampoo, $28.95, available at selected hair salons, to keep my colour nice and vibrant, along with Moroccan Oil Restorative Hair Mask, $49.50, from adorebeauty.com.au, to bring my sometimes-traumatised hair to life.
What is your favourite fragrance?
Tom Ford Black Orchid, from $100, from David Jones
What about make-up?
I mix MAC Face and Body, $60, MAC Cosmetics, with Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, $90, from selected department stores and pharmacies, for perfect coverage.
La Mer The Radiant Concealer, $140, La Mer, NARS Laguna Bronzer, $55, Mecca Cosmetica, Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Intense, $100, from David Jones, (I’m not a really a blush wearer and this has an amazing clay consistency which sculpts and brightens), Kevyn Aucoin ‘The Mascara’ in Black, $40, Mecca Cosmetica,. To finish – La Mer Lip Balm, $90, La Mer, which is like velvet on the lips.
Best budget beauty buys?
Dove Protective Tinted Moisturiser SPF15, $10.52, from supermarkets and pharmacies.
And your biggest beauty indulgence?
I guess anything and everything La Mer…
What does your exercise routine involve?
I really enjoy outdoor activity! Schedules get busy but I jump on any chance I get to be outside and active. Wakeboarding with friends is a favorite past time. And of course hitting the slopes!
What is your diet like?
Everything in moderation I say! It’s about a healthy balance and not depriving yourself.
What is your biggest splurge?
Balenciaga Shoes from Paris
What is your best solution to a bad hair day?
I’m sure you’ve noticed I’m a bit of a hat wearer… But I also find a centre part; spray of water and spritz of sea salt spray seems to fix a sometimes-unruly mane.
Best trick to brighten up a morning after face?
Dove Protective Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15, $10.52, gives me a fresh, dewy finish no matter how tired my skin may be. I use it daily!
Best beauty on the go tip?
Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil is amazing. I use it throughout winter and apply it after the shower while I’m still wet so it penetrates the skin and keeps it hydrated and moisturised ALL day.
Fave lippy colour?
I am all about a red lip and my ultimate is Tom Ford Cherry Lush, $65, from David Jones. The name says it all.
What is your biggest beauty/skin sin?
I don’t really have one. I’m pretty regimental with my skincare routine and luckily have the opportunity to work with wonderful people who I pick up tips and tricks off.
What do you do in your down time?
Down time? Not much of that at the moment… I enjoy my friends and family – spending time with them keeps me grounded, focused and as relaxed as I can be with such a busy schedule.
What is your favourite holiday destination?
What is the best beauty advice you’ve ever been given that you would like to share with our readers?
It’s the age-old beauty advice that I can’t turn away from – EVERY NIGHT before bed, WASH your makeup off! Skin needs time to rest, breath and rejuvenate.
