Beauty Interview – Irish Independent Online

Wednesday January 20 2010 Independent.ie

Laura Whiston, a writer and fashion and style blogger from Dublin shares her make-up routine with us.

Morning routine?

After cleansing and moisturising, it probably takes about 10 -15 minutes to do my make-up depending on where I’m going. Nights out can take twice that time.

First beauty memories?

When I was eight, much to my Mum’s delight, my sister and I decided to make a concoction with her make-up. I think we’d been reading George’s Marvelous Medicine (by Roald Dahl)at the time and needless to say it was a one-off occasion!

First product ?

Not product exactly but my birthday is on Hallowe’en so it was glittery false eyelashes to go with a fancy dress costume, I’m not sure if I still have them.

What’s your top tip?

You can’t go wrong with the basics so I ALWAYS check for the foundation line between your neck and face. I probably got that from Cosmopolitan magazine when I was still in school but it serves you well, I think there are times in a girls life when she can smudge a bit and get away with it but the foundation line is the measure.

Do you go out without make up?

No, not unless it is an absolute emergency, and I don’t mean a ‘bread and milk’ type emergency. No one need ever see me without slap!

In the bag and on the wish-list?

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF15  in the bag (EDIT: Lancôme Juicy Tubes lip gloss in Lychee is also in there and something I can’t actually live without in winter) and Creme de la Mer is on the list …

What’s the most you’ve ever spent on a product and why did you buy it?

I’ve never really gone too mad, I always used to buy YSL Faux Cils mascara, it was about €25 and it lasts about a month. As good as it is, I always thought it a bit of an overspend seeing as most mascara lasts about 3 months. I’m casting round for a replacement.

Do you tend to go for bargain buys or are you swayed by the adverts?

I’m a consummate shopper, so I never bargain hunt. I’m always convinced that there is some reason why anything is cheap. I can be swayed by the amount of sales a product has made, like the Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara sold over 1 million so I’ll give that a go defo.

Where do you head for a beauty fix?

Harvey Nichols / Debenhams / House of Fraser. Big departments stores mostly. It’s such an assault on the senses.

Is there a trend you would like to see come into fashion?

I wish the whole 60’s Twiggy drawn on lashes trend would come back in for a season. I’d love to give that a go. I like fashion that’s a bit whimsical.

Who’s vanity case would you snoop in?

Christina Aguilera or Dita von Teese – I would love to see just how many (or how few) products it takes to look so pristine.

A big thanks to the utterly fabulous Sinead Van Kampen of TheSavvyShopper.ie for including me!
