08 Feb Annalise Braakensiek- Celebrity Beauty Favourites
Annalise Braakensiek has recently launched her signature jewellery collection, ‘Annalise’. The exclusive range marks the return of Annalise to her creative roots. The internationally recognised model, Logie Award nominee, Television personality and Designer chats with me about her ‘Beauty Favourites’ and shares her insights into healthy skin and healthy living.
How would you describe your daily skin care routine?
A: I cleanse, moisturise and slather myself in sunscreen religiously. For my face, I’m a DMK (Danne Montague-King) girl, for my body I love Dr Hauschke and Weleda products.
*Do you have any beauty secrets or rituals you swear by?
A: A good nights sleep, drink plenty of purified water and laugh lots! Its not really a secret, but definitely works wonders. I also swear by hot yoga (power vinyasa flow classes at Body Mind Life are amaaaazing) Lucas papaw ointment for dry lips and cuticles, DMK Direct Delivery Vitamin C serum ( and facials… my god, the best ever!) and of course my hair gurus Kelly, Chloe or Ivana at Toni & Guy Bondi Beach for a fab style! And when you’re not well rested, fake it with MAC pink swoon blush and Bronzing Powder for a healthy glow.
What is the most important aspect to you of looking after your skin?
A:I really believe that eating a well balanced, organic meat free diet and regular exercise is just as important for looking after your skin as using good organic and chemical free products.
Do you have any products you simply couldn’t live without?
A: O&M 7 day miracle moisture mask ( not only chemical free but the best detangler ever and smells absolutely divine) MAC bronzer and Pink Swoon powered blush, Cancer Council everyday 30+ sunscreen, and DMK face products.
What was your last make-up purchase?
A: I just replenished my MAC Lady Danger lippie… loving wearing it this summer with a natural face!
How would you describe your ‘everyday’ make-up style?
A: If I’m not working, I’m generally an all natural girl… moisturiser, sunscreen and maybe a bit of blush and bronzer. However if I’m shooting, then I love either a sexy smoky eye and nude lips, or red lips and a natural eye with lashings of lashes always!
Any tips for combining your make-up look with your accessories ?
A:With my Annalise Signature Jewellery Collection I personally love to design and wear turquoise and silver jewellery. I find a slight hint of pink/purple and brown eye shadow really accentuates the green in my eyes and shows off the turquoise best. But it depends on what your accessories you are wearing of course as their is quite a selection to choose from!
