My beauty secrets: Charlotte Bellis

Charlotte Bellis is a 60 Minutes presenter, Prime News anchor and NutriGrain Iron Man Ambassador.

MY BEAUTY PHILOSOPHY IS…
Quality not quantity. I’m very minimalist so stick to MD Formulations Facial Cleanser followed by L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Luminosity BB Cream (1). The BB gives you a glow,
it moisturises and also has an SPF rating to protect you from the sun.

THE SKINCARE PRODUCTS I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT ARE…
Ever since I was 16 I’ve had Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream (2) in my make-up bag. It’s a fix-it-all and a great moisture boost for your skin and lips.

MY HAIR CARE SECRET IS…
I use hairdryers and straighteners as little as possible so my hair doesn’t dry out. I also try to use a haircare regime specific to blondes – at the moment it’s Matrix Total Results Blonde Care Shampoo (3), Conditioner (4) and Flash Filler (5).

THE MUST-HAVE PRODUCTS IN MY MAKE-UP BAG ARE…
I keep a bottle of dry shampoo in the car and another at work just in case my locks get a bit greasy. I’m using Matrix Design Pulse Clean Remix (6) at the moment. I also like to have a selection of bright lipsticks in my handbag in case of after-work drinks or dinner. I’ve recently found a great red, L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Intense in Deep Raspberry (7).

MY FAVOURITE BEAUTY TREAT IS…
Going to Cherry Nails in Auckland to get custom-designed nails. Cherry turns them into a work of art and her designs complement any outfit. A lot of them remind of Sass & Bide’s style of graphics.

MY BIGGEST BEAUTY SIN IS…
Not wearing enough sunblock and getting burnt. It’s been my beauty sin since I was a child.

THE BEST THING MY MOTHER TAUGHT ME ABOUT BEAUTY WAS…
Always wash your face before going to bed!
