Wilde at Heart

How would you de­fine mod­ern beauty?

Beauty to­day lies in em­brac­ing im­per­fec­tion and in be­ing an in­di­vid­ual. Mod­ern beauty should be about us­ing all the benefits of science to en­hance what is nat­u­ral and healthy.

When did you learn to take care of your skin?

My mother al­ways em­pha­sised the im­por­tance of look­ing af­ter your hands and face. She bought me my first mois­turiser from an Estée Lauder counter—i have such strong mem­o­ries of the unique and sub­tle blue-green hue of the Estée Lauder pack­ag­ing from my child­hood.

How do you stay healthy?

Sleep is so im­por­tant. It’s when your body re­pairs it­self, so I try to get eight hours of sleep each night—if my son will al­low it, that is. I don’t do much sport but pre­fer more re­laxed ex­er­cise that comes nat­u­rally to me, such as long walks in the coun­try­side with my fam­ily and ba­sic yoga.

What’s your evening beauty rou­tine?

I’m a low-main­te­nance beauty girl, so I have just a few key prod­ucts I can’t live with­out. I love a good mois­turiser, like the Estée Lauder Ul­tra Di­a­mond Trans­for­ma­tive En­ergy Crème. And I al­ways use a gen­tle make-up re­mover, such as Estée Lauder Per­fectly Clean Multi-ac­tion Crème Cleanser, which is par­tic­u­larly nec­es­sary when I’m act­ing.

And for the day?

I like BB creams be­cause they give me sun pro­tec­tion and even out my skin tone. For my make-up, gen­er­ally I’m into a more nat­u­ral look. I’m very fair, so I al­ways use black mas­cara, such as Estée Lauder Dou­ble Wear Zero-smudge.
