ANNA HEINRICH, MUSE OF THE MOMENT
What is the one beauty product you cannot live without?
Confidence is my biggest beauty secret! For me looking good is about feeling good, which is why I use the latest addition to the Oral-B 3D White range, Arctic Fresh toothpaste every day. It features an advanced cleaning formula for superior whitening and means I can relax knowing that I can still drink my morning coffee without worrying about stains.
What about skin – do you have a skincare routine?
I’m a strong believer in not putting too much on my face, but that said, I am a big fan of the Clinique moisturisers, and tend to use these both day and night. In the morning, I moisturise with Clinique Daily Moisturiser. At night, I make sure I have a clean face and use Clinique Night Time moisturiser.
Do you have a signature scent?
I won’t leave the house without a bit of perfume on and am currently loving Valentino Donna.
What’s in your makeup bag?
It’s no secret that I’m well stocked up on Oral-B 3D White products in my bathroom cabinet as well as my handbag. I always carry the whitening strips and some floss as well as foundation, Blistex pearl lip balm and a bottle of water. I’m like Mary Poppins….. you just keep pulling more and more makeup from my bag.
What was the best piece of beauty advice your Mum gave you?
I think I have quite good eyebrows today thanks to my mum who always stressed the point not to over pluck your eyebrows.
What was your first beauty related memory?
Getting a weave which was a totally different colour to my actual hair colour…… more of a nightmare than a fond memory.
What’s the one beauty product that everyone should know about?
My current obsession is Gimme Brow by Benefit; it’s a fantastic brow shaper and filler in one. It takes two minutes to apply and makes my eyebrows look really full.
I also love the Oral-B 3D White Luxe Advanced Seal Strips. I use them either the night before or an hour before a special event. They not only make my teeth whiter and brighter, but make me feel more confident about my smile!
What’s the one lesson you wish you learnt when you were younger?
To believe in myself more, and to be more confident of my self worth.
Do you prefer rocking a smokey eye or red lipstick?
Smokey eye – it gives a dramatic and sexy look that makes you feel as though you can get away with anything! #rebel
Ok, what about mascara or bronzer?
BOTH – I wouldn’t leave the house without wearing either.
Do you have a morning routine?
I’ve been doing a bit of intermittent fasting. So I won’t get up and have breakfast straight away – I have it around 11am or 12pm. I don’t do that every single day, but when I do, I find I have just as much energy and can still tackle the day.
I make brushing my teeth the first thing I do when I wake up – often in the shower to save time….. multi-tasking is my best friend!
What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
Eyelash extensions! I’ve been getting them since I was 18 and feel extremely bare without them.
Do you have a makeup brand you swear by?
Too Faced Born This Way Foundation – I take it everywhere. It’s not too heavy and provides great, even coverage.
What’s your favourite salon?
I get my hair and makeup done by Lilly from Lilly & Co out in Maroubra. It’s a trek but worth it.
Do you have a favourite treatment?
I’m a strong believer in not putting too much on my face. For me, it’s more about what you put into your body through a balanced diet and plenty of exercise.
Favourite way to indulge?
If you were spending a day with your best girlfriends, what would you do?
Get a delicious breakfast/lunch and coffee…. most probably in Bondi.
How do you keep fit?
For me exercise is about constantly being active, rather than following a strict routine. It really doesn’t matter what you do – just keep moving. If there’s a place I’m heading to that isn’t too far away, I try to walk there, and I always opt for taking the stairs. I really love being active.
Which beauty trend are you loving right now?
“Groomed minimalism” – Vogue.
Who is your beauty idol/inspiration?
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Gigi Hadid and Amal Clooney.
The best beauty secret. Beauty has a lot more to do with confidence in yourself and how you come across to others – looking good is about feeling good and being healthy.
