We asked three pairs of stylish women to share their favourite tips and prod­ucts

ANNA HAR­VEY (68) RUNS FASH­ION BOU­TIQUE MILOU IN PON­SONBY, AUCK­LAND. DAUGH­TER CLARE VAN DEN BERG (36) IS THE CO-OWNER OF ODETTE’S EATERY & HUGO’S BISTRO, BOTH IN THE CITY’S CBD.

ANNA: My skincare rou­tine con­sists of cleanse, tone and nour­ish, which I’ve done since I was 15. I cleanse with Pears soap and wa­ter, morn­ing and night. I’ll wear a bit of Bio Oil and al­ways ap­ply an eye cream – Clar­ins is my cur­rent favourite. Then I ap­ply Clin­ique BB Cream. At night, I use Nivea Q10 Night Cream and Clar­ins Eye Cream. I’ve al­ways been happy with my skin, but six years ago I started notic­ing some lines; I think this came with the shock of los­ing my hus­band.

From 15, I’ve al­ways taken a mul­ti­vi­ta­min and min­eral cap­sule daily. As for beauty re­grets,

I wish I hadn’t plucked my eye­brows out years ago! So now I re­sort to pen­cilling them in.

Too much make-up ages me. A tinted blusher, mois­turiser, mas­cara and a coral and pink lip­stick al­ways does the trick. One of my favourites is

Stila Stay All Day Liq­uid Lip­stick Fiore 07.

CLARE: I drink as much wa­ter as I can – two litres or more a day – and find my skin just glows. My cur­rent regime con­sists of Bio­derma Cleanser and lots of mois­turiser and oils. Af­ter my shower I use Lucy Marr’s gor­geous Sans Ac­ti­va­tor 7

Body + Hair + Face Oil, fol­lowed with Kiehl’s Ul­tra Fa­cial Mois­turiser. At night, I use La Mer Mir­a­cle Broth, La Mer Mois­tur­is­ing Soft Cream and Kiehl’s Eye Cream or Ar­gan Oil. I al­ways wear lots of mois­turiser and I ap­ply Clar­ins Baume Beauté Eclair un­der my tinted BB Cream (Cur­tis Col­lec­tion is the best).

I love a good fa­cial; Amelia at Room 9 is amaz­ing and it’s al­ways such a treat. Man­i­cured brows are im­por­tant to me and I reg­u­larly go to Spring Spa. I also eat whole foods – I guess I’m very lucky with where I can go to eat!

I think my look is very nat­u­ral, maybe too nat­u­ral. I love a great mas­cara – Chanel is the best (I put Mum onto it) – and a good lip: I like NARS or Chante­caille. MAC bronz­ers are best and NARS ‘Or­gasm’ has many uses. Less is more for me. When­ever I travel I use plenty of Rose Mist from Kora to keep my skin hy­drated.

SARAH GE­ORGE (45), MOTHER OF THREE AND OWNER OF HOME AND GIFTWARE STORE HEDGEROW IN RE­MUERA. RUBY GE­ORGE (18), LAW AND COM­MERCE STU­DENT AT VIC­TO­RIA UNIVER­SITY, AND PART-TIME WORKER AT SU­PERETTE.

SARAH: In the morn­ing I use Estée Lauder Per­fectly Clean Cleanser and Ad­vanced Time Zone Day Cream. In the evening I use the

Drunk Ele­phant TLC Night Serum and Estée Lauder Re­silience Lift Night Cream and Girl Undis­cov­ered Face Oil. I’m not un­happy with my skin – I guess if I could change any­thing it would be to re­verse time!

I love to have oc­ca­sional fa­cials at About Face. I also reg­u­larly go to Cherry Navas (Cherry Nails) in Re­muera for my brows and nails – she is the best. Sid at Servilles in New­mar­ket does my hair.

My big­gest ad­vice I give to Ruby is to al­ways take her make-up off be­fore bed – no ex­cep­tions. And to al­ways wear a hat in the sun.

I don’t wear a lot of make-up – on an av­er­age day I wear BB cream, mas­cara, eye­liner and lip­stick. For a spe­cial night out I can’t go past a good smokey eye. For a re­ally spe­cial event I would have my make-up done at the MAC counter. I’m all about be­ing well groomed; I be­lieve that first im­pres­sions count.

RUBY: In the morn­ing I use Girl Undis­cov­ered Cleans­ing Wa­ter fol­lowed by Clar­ins Toner and Mario Bade­scu Vi­ta­min C Mois­turiser. I love the Clar­ins Beauty Flash Balm. In the evening I use Clar­ins Cleans­ing Milk. I have oc­ca­sional break­outs on my fore­head and around my nose which is why I’m us­ing Mario Bade­scu – it’s re­ally good for acne-prone skin.

I go to Cherry for lash tints, brow shapes and nails. Mum and I love to see Ash­ley at

Golden Glow tan salon be­fore spe­cial events and hol­i­days. Every six months or so I go to Stephen Marr to have a Cezanne hair-smooth­ing treat­ment; it’s ex­pen­sive but amaz­ing and worth every cent! For peo­ple with curly hair I couldn’t rec­om­mend it more.

I don’t wear a lot of make-up on a day-to-day ba­sis, al­though it de­pends how I am feel­ing about my skin. BB cream and mas­cara would be the most I would wear for a nor­mal day.

Mum likes to say, “Pretty is as pretty does.” I think it means you are as pretty as your ac­tions. Good ac­tions make a beau­ti­ful per­son; beauty on the in­side shines through to the out­side.
