Aidee Walker (32) is an Auckland actress.
My beauty philosophy is… Get enough sleep, drink plenty of water and eat well. It starts inside.
The skincare products I can’t live without are… CLINIQUE ALL ABOUT EYES EYE CREAM, CLARINS MULTI-ACTIVE NIGHT YOUTH RECOVERY CREAM and CLARINS VITAL LIGHT ILLUMINATING DAY CREAM.
My haircare secret is…Never dye it. My hair goes blonder in summer and strawberry in winter, so it keeps things interesting. It has been through the ringer for acting roles and remains really healthy and strong, which is great.
The must-have products in my make-up bag are…NARS when I can afford it. Currently their blush and red lippy are my pretty good friends. Also, STILA STAY ALL DAY FOUNDATION and HD BEAUTY BALM are recent purchases that have served me well. And I’ve tried loads of mascara, but totally rate MAYBELLINE NY THE MEGAPLUSH VOLUM’ EXPRESS.
My favourite beauty treat is… Getting a pedicure and sitting on the massage seat. It’s a rare occasion for me, but usually I take a book and have some time out.
My biggest beauty sin is…Not taking off eye make-up. I always remove my face, but can be lazy with mascara and wake up looking worse for wear.
The best thing my mother taught me about beauty was… Hand cream. She always seems to be carrying and offering me some.
