Meghan Markle’s Favourite Mascara Revealed

If you’re willing to sacrifice a couple of coffees today, in exchange for a well-kept beauty secret, listen up.

Meghan Markle’s former make-up artist has let slip a major beauty tip straight from the beauty bag of Meghan Markle herself. Lydia Sellers, who worked with Meghan on Suits, has revealed the mascara Meghan absolutely swears by.

Meghan, who has very clear ideas about what she does and doesn’t like in a beauty routine, hardly ever strays too far from a classic makeup look. Lucky for Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara, Meghan can’t live without it. According to Sellers, the mascara is great for full volume and lengthening, and the formula is super hydrating. It’s also a bargain, costing you only $24.95, so you only have to give up a couple of coffees to gain a whole lot more.

5 Tips For Glowing Winter Skin

As the sky gets a bit grey and your fitness routine teeters, it’s easy to let your skin routine slip too. However, without the plague of the harsh summer sun, winter is the ideal time for you to double down and rejuvenate your skin. We share with you a few of our best tips to get your skin into tip-top shape – after all, there’s no time like the present.

Antioxidant Investments

To give your skin a little more bounce this winter, we suggest investing in a serum that’s rich in antioxidants. It will protect your skin from free radicals, as well as leaving your face looking and feeling energised, so you can have glowing skin all year round.

Cleanse Sans Foam

In winter, skin stops producing as much sebum, so it’s important to give it a wee hand and work hard to maintain its natural moisture barrier. Foaming cleansers may be fun but they can cause irritation and strip good oils away from your face. We suggest switching to a non-foaming, cream or oil based cleanser, to help replenish your skin’s natural oils.

Baby Don’t Burn

We all know it can be hard in the mornings to get in and out of the shower, due to the icy breeze that clutches at your skin. However, it’s important to remember to avoid temperatures that are scalding hot as this can dry out the skin, leaving it itchy and sensitive. This applies to showering in sizzling temps, as well as drying off centimeters away from a hot heater too. Be sure to apply a layer of moisture-rich body cream or lotion after you’ve dried off, to help your skin stay supple.

Use a Humidifier

In the same way as above, leaving the heating on overnight can really suck the life out of your skin, leaving it dry and dull. Investing in a humidifier that replaces moisture in the air can really benefit your skin, as well as your overall health. Bonus: any humectant ingredients in your moisturizers will draw in this moisture to plump and heal.


Sometimes it’s hard to remember to drink plenty of water when temperatures aren’t scorching hot. But drinking water in winter is just as important as it is in summer! An easy way to do this is to have an extra glass of water with every meal to keep your skin hydrated and happy, as well as helping you feel energised.
