What is your skin care regime, and which products you use and why?
At night I use Queenie May's cold cream to remove my makeup then apply Queenie May's vanishing cream. They are gorgeous vintage inspired creams made here in NZ. In the mornings I just use a warm face cloth to freshen up my face and then Nivea Face and Body Moisturiser, it's really light and my makeup sits well on top of it. To exfoliate once a week I mix used coffee grounds (out of the plunger) with some aqueous cream - polish and wash off. I am currently on the hunt for a good eye-cream for wrinkles and black circles so would love suggestions
Do you take any health supplements to help with skin/hair/nails?
I take evening primrose capsules daily.
What are your favourite makeup products and why?
I love Thin-Lizzy concealer. I was reluctant to try it at first but haven't bought another brand since, it has such amazing coverage. Revlon Colour Stay liquid eyeliner in Black- always stays put all day. Mac Fluidline in Non-Conformist (dark purple) - a great alternative to black liner when I want something a little different but still want to stick close the my regular vintage look. Revlon Colour Stay foundation - I have just started using this and am loving the results. Phoenix Pixie Blush in Crushed Velvet gives the perfect amount of glimmer on my cheek bones. Phoenix Cedar eye shadow - I use this to fill in my brows and to contour the crease in my eyelid. MAC Ruby Woo lippy - nothing beats it...except for LimeCrime Velvetine, which is my new favourite! Also Lucas Pawpaw ointment! I use it about 5 times a day on my lips and is always the last thing I apply before I go to bed.
Do you have any makeup tips/tricks you swear by?
Never forget your eyebrows, they make such a difference. Some people have naturally great brows so don't need to do anymore than a brush; but if you have brows like mine they need to be filled, lined and then brushed. I also have a lighter concealer which I use under my eyebrows to highlight the arch. And lip-liner - I often have ladies ask me how I keep my red lippy on; I line my lips then shade them in lightly with the lip pencil before I put my lipstick on top.
What are your favourite hair products and why?
Fudge Violet Toning Shampoo - goodbye yellow blonde! Toni & Guy Tame-it Serum is great for making my curls shiny and frizz free after using hot rollers. and number 1 for me is hairspray, any brand so long as it's strong hold.
What are your favourite fragrances and why?
My favourite classic is Miss Dior, at the moment i am also loving Reb'l Fleur by Rihanna.
What/who are your beauty inspirations/icons?
Marilyn Monroe and Brigitte Bardot. I love makeup from the 50's and 60's so that's how i do my own.
