They All Hate Us- Tash and Elle Share Their ‘Beauty Favourites’

They All Hate Us was born from a shared love of all things fashion, lifestyle and inspirations between two best friends- Tash Sefton and Elle Ferguson. What started as a daily ‘afternoon delight’ of images over email to each other to help get them through the day, soon spiralled into the international blog it is today. Gone are the days where Tash and Elle would crash their work server with albums of their favourite quotes, must have fashion items and aspirations, instead these musings are shared for us all to enjoy. I ask these fashion icons about their ultimate ‘Beauty Favourites’ and get an insight into their beauty regimen. Visit the girls’ daily posts at

How would you describe your daily skin care routine?

TASH: I use the Tourmaline Charged Exfoliating cleaner by Aveda. I love the gentleness of the Aveda range while still feeling like your skin has been cleaned. I am addicted to the entire Aveda range! Since having kids my skin is very sensitive to anything too heavy or with chemicals. In the morning I use Aveda Botanical Kenetics Hydrating Lotion and at night the Tourmaline Charged Hydrating Crème. I spend a lot of time at the beach so like to make sure my skin is well hydrated.

ELLE: Simple and easy.

Do you have any beauty secrets or rituals you swear by?

TASH: Once a week I use the Aveda Tourmaline charged radiant skin refiner and a couple of times a month I use the Radiance Masque. It makes my kids laugh as I look like a ghost! I just love the feeling of my skin after a deep cleanse.

On the weekends and when I don’t feel like wearing makeup I use La Mer tinted moisturizer (Actually a tip from Jess Hart as I wanted to mimic her amazing glow – she gave me a run down of her secrets which I have copied.).

ELLE: Even if my hair is clean I always spray dry shampoo in it, I find it gives my hair body (I have super fine hair) and makes my curl last longer

What is the most important aspect to you of looking after your skin?

TASH: Moisturizer ! Face, body, hands, neck, even feet.

ELLE: Always, always remove your make up before you go to sleep!

Do you have any products you simply couldn’t live without?

TASH: Toni & Guy sea salt spray and cleanser dry shampoo. These 2 things make my life so much easier! The sea salt spray is amazing.

 ELLE: I absolutely can not live without the following- Clinique take the day off balm (a beautiful cream cleanser that literally takes all your make up off), Model Co face base (goes on after your moisturiser, before your foundation and somehow makes you appear to have flawless skin while letting your skin breath and keeping your make up on), Giorgio Armani liquid silk foundation (this foundation is the BEST!!!)

 What was your last make-up purchase?

TASH: Another tip from Jess Hart I have copied NARS Copacabana – applied to the cheek bones into your eye.

ELLE: My last make up purchase was alpha lipoic vitamins. My mum swears by them and she looks incredible!

How would you describe your ‘everyday’ make-up style?

TASH: Simple, easy, fresh…like I’ve got nothing on (but secretly do).

 ELLE: I love that ‘rolled out of bed’ but I look amazing look… always tanned with tousled hair!

Tash has having children changed the way you look after your skin?

TASH: Yes….I am really aware of anything too strong or toxic around them. I don’t wear perfume any more as think the smell is too strong for them. I also don’t have a lot of time so my routine is very simple but effective.
