Charlotte Devereux: My beauty secrets

Charlotte Devereux (42) is the director/designer of maternity clothing company EGG.

MY BEAUTY PHILOSOPHY IS… Yoga and meditation enable me to keep an inner and outer glow – with the help of some great products!

THE SKINCARE PRODUCTS I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT ARE… Dermalogica Multivitamin Thermafoliant followed by the Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque to get that glow! I love our EGG Essential Care 100% Pure Organic Rosehip Oil – it keeps my face and décolletage super-nourished.

MY HAIRCARE SECRET IS… Moroccanoil for lustrous locks when my hairdryer’s on overdrive. In summer I tend to let my hair dry naturally with some Kérastase Oléo-Curl for definition. A new summer hair secret I’ve just discovered is L’Oréal Paris Elvive Smooth-Intense Smoothing Masque. I apply it to freshly washed, wet hair just before bed for intense nourishment and long-lasting smoothing. I have curly hair that tends towards frizzy, but when I do this I wake with perfect curls. Then there’s no need to use a hair dryer or tongs, which gives me an extra half hour free in the morning.

THE MUST-HAVE PRODUCTS IN MY MAKEUP BAG ARE… Napoleon Perdis Auto-Pilot Skin Renewal Serum. I layer it under the Napoleon Perdis Auto-Pilot Pre-Foundation Primer for long-lasting makeup. I adore L’Oréal Paris Infallible Eyeshadow for intense colour and have just discovered the most amazing shade in their Colour Riche Intense Lipcolour range called Plum Passion. It gives you an instant pop of colour when you’re feeling a little bit blah.

MY FAVOURITE BEAUTY TREAT IS… a Bliss Reflexology massage.

MY BIGGEST BEAUTY SIN IS… drinking way too much wine.

THE BEST THING MY MOTHER TAUGHT ME ABOUT BEAUTY WAS… to smile, which will bring out the goddess within.
