“After my hair and makeup, I see myself in a new light”
For me, my makeup and beauty routine is an act of care and an opportunity to take time for me. It’s like a moment of mindfulness to really rejuvenate myself and focus on something that will make me feel better. I like a natural look, but after doing my hair or makeup I see myself in a whole new light. I am much more ready to enjoy starting my day and starting to kick ass!
“I am a big fan of facial massage”
My makeup artist and hairdresser Manuele Mameli always does a long facial massage before starting to put on makeup. I also do this myself at night, after removing my makeup, but it’s so much better when a professional does it, so I love facials where they have a lot of lymphatic drainage in them. It makes my skin so much more beautiful.
“My desert island beauty product is the GHD Unplugged”
I usually blow dry, which lasts a few days, so all I have to do is touch up on the go. the GHD Unplugged Cordless Hair Straightener is perfect for that – I have one in my clutch right now! I also keep one in my office and in my car. It’s so small that it fits in most of my handbags. The only other product I take with me everywhere is hand sanitizer.
“My life motto is: ‘no one stands in line for a flat roller coaster'”
The life I’m leaving now, I never thought it was possible. I try to remember it but I also allow myself to feel depressed. You can’t always fight hard and miserable times, you have to accept that life has its ups and downs. It’s not about where you are right now, but the whole ride, which is why I always say “no one is in line for a flat roller coaster”.
The idea of trying to be happy all the time is too much pressure. We cannot always be at our best, fully, and giving you time to feel this will help you appreciate the better days more.
“I love trying new beauty treatments”
When I was in LA I used to do a facial called The Peleve which is kind of like ultherapy and uses heat to help tighten the pores and you can see how much you have. the air sculpted immediately after. Other than that I have tried cryotherapy but it is very cold – I prefer a hot bath!
