Irish Examiner - Feelgood - - Beauty -

WITH her flaw­less skin, dark eyes and newly blonde pixie crop, Frankie Bridge is un­de­ni­ably gor­geous, but it’s re­fresh­ing to hear that when it comes to beauty regimes, the TV pre­sen­ter and Satur­days singer doesn’t subscribe to the ‘I woke up like this’ stock re­sponse. “I think look­ing af­ter your skin in the first place is cru­cial. I do drink a lot of wa­ter. I can ac­tu­ally feel the dif­fer­ence when I haven’t,” she says. “And I’m a big be­liever in tak­ing your make-up off ev­ery night, be­cause my mum al­ways told me to do that. There’s noth­ing worse than wak­ing up in the morn­ing with crusty make up!” Mother-of-two Frankie, 28, tries to treat her­self to a bit of ex­tra TLC on oc­ca­sion too. “I spend a lit­tle more time in the bath when I can, and do a hair mask and a face mask. Once or twice a week is good if you have time.” It’s not all lav­ish prod­ucts and lux­ury treat­ments, though. When we asked the star about her es­sen­tial beauty buys, there wasn’t a sin­gle prod­uct over €24-mark men­tioned.

Here are Frankie’s top 5 beauty must-haves...

1. El­iz­a­beth Ar­den Eight Hour In­ten­sive Re­pair Lip Balm “Lip balm is a big thing for me. I can get dry lips but El­iz­a­beth Ar­den re­ally sorts it out.” 2. Iman Sheer Fin­ish Bronz­ing Pow­der “My sta­ple would be a lit­tle bit of bronzer for my cheeks, to give me a bit of colour. I use Iman.” 3. Oral B 3D White Luxe Tooth­paste “I’ve never thought tooth­paste was good at whiten­ing teeth, but this gen­uinely does.” 4. Olay To­tal Ef­fects 7in1 Anti-Age­ing Mois­turiser SPF15. “Olay To­tal Ef­fects is good for busy mums. Ev­ery­one wants that glowy, dewy skin now, but they don’t want to look like they’ve got loads of make-up on. When I’m not work­ing, I can’t be both­ered to put make-up on, so that’s been a great one for me. It has a lit­tle bit of a tint in it.” 5. High Def­i­ni­tion Brow Beater and Pro Pencil. “Eye­brows are a big thing for me, so I al­ways have an eye­brow kit on me. I have a pencil and a brow gel from High Def­i­ni­tion.”
