A Nat­u­ral Glow

The stylish Tansy Lau-tom achieves a glow­ing com­plex­ion with help from Hera

Hong Kong Tatler - - Tatler Focus -

Most women would agree that when it comes to a make-up and beauty regime, the ease and sim­plic­ity of ap­pli­ca­tion is es­sen­tial. This is par­tic­u­larly true for those busy moth­ers who need to ded­i­cate the ma­jor­ity of their time to their chil­dren.

The ef­fer­ves­cent Tansy Lau­tom re­cently dis­cov­ered Korean cos­met­ics brand Hera, whose prod­ucts can help re­duce signs of age­ing while giv­ing a nat­u­ral­look­ing fin­ish. For­merly in fash­ion PR, Tansy is a full-time mother of two (soon to be three)—and now more aware than ever of the in­gre­di­ents in prod­ucts she uses, as well as the lux­ury of time.

“I like to keep my beauty regime quite sim­ple. In the morn­ings, af­ter I clean my face, I just put on a foun­da­tion, such as Hera’s UV Mist Cush­ion,” says Tansy. “It’s quite easy be­cause it also has sun pro­tec­tion in it, so I don’t have to worry about sun­screen.”

One of the brand’s most pop­u­lar prod­ucts, the UV Mist Cush­ion al­lows women to achieve a nat­u­ral, dewy fin­ish that lasts up to 12 hours, all while help­ing to block out the sun’s harm­ful rays. The Age Re­verse Cush­ion is also a best­seller, giv­ing skin a ra­di­ant fin­ish cou­pled with anti-age­ing prop­er­ties.

“Hera works well for me be­cause the cush­ion foun­da­tion is light and ap­plies re­ally well. I just put it on my face with a bit of loose pow­der, and ev­ery­thing looks evenly toned,” ex­plains Tansy.

For ul­ti­mate cov­er­age, it is rec­om­mended to tap the foun­da­tion onto your skin with the sponge pro­vided, in­stead of pulling the prod­uct across your face, as this of­ten ends in a streaky and un­even ef­fect. Com­plete your look with a pop of colour—hera also has a mois­tur­is­ing Rouge Holic lip­stick line that gives off a hint of sparkle un­der sun­light, with a last­ing for­mula that keeps lips look­ing moist and smooth.

“I’ve been us­ing Korean beauty prod­ucts for a while now, as I feel that they’re quite suit­able for Asian women,” says Tansy. “They look nat­u­ral and feel less greasy than some of the other brands that I’ve tried over the years.”

Hera cur­rently has a num­ber of pop-up shops across Hong Kong—ex­clu­sively at DFS out­lets. The main pop-up store at T Gal­le­ria by DFS on Tsim Sha Tsui’s Can­ton Road is open un­til the end of Novem­ber.
