Which three beauty items could you not live without?
Estee Lauder Intensive Lip Repair Balm, Shu Uemura eyelash curlers and Redken 12 Texture Rough Paste.
What’s your skincare regime, and does this differ from morning to night?
I’ve been struggling with sore breakouts for the past year, so my skincare regime is constantly changing in a bid to find the right products. I’m currently using Cosmedix Purity Clean face wash followed by Medik8 antioxidant gel and mattifying moisturiser. I then apply Epionce Ultra Shield SPF 50, and finish with Cosmedix Opti Crystal eye serum. Apart from only using SPF in the daytime, I stick to this routine both morning and night.
What’s been your biggest beauty faux pas?
I was once getting ready for a date and as I curled my eyelashes the curlers chopped them off!! The whole lot just fell onto my cheeks! I had to shove on a pair of strip lashes, which I wore for weeks until my real ones grew back. It’s taken me years to trust curlers again!!
What’s been your most extravagant beauty splurge?
Laser Hair Removal. It’s so expensive and I never seem to finish a course. It hurts so much and I’m a bit of a wimp! I’m currently avoiding my next visit, but it will be so worth it in the long run.
When, and what, was your last beauty treatment?
A few weeks ago. My friend Michaella Bolder does the best facials. It’s great as she comes to my house. She also has the best skin, so I totally trust her with mine!
What’s your best beauty tip or trick to share with the readers of You Glow Girl?
I have a few broken veins on my face that I hate. I was asking a dermatologist why I get them and she said to make sure that the water I wash my face with isn’t too hot. I had no idea this is what causes them, so I’m slowly training myself to use cooler water. I hope this tip can help someone else!
i do have the same problem too especially on my upper lip. It makes me look like I have a mustache 🙁
