Stella Terrell: My beauty secrets

Stella Terrell: My beauty secrets

Stella Terrell (38) is the marketing manager at Overland Footwear.

MY BEAUTY PHILOSOPHY IS… From skincare, diet, getting enough sleep and exercise, to using sunscreen and dealing with stress – simply do your best. You can never get it all right every day.

THE SKINCARE PRODUCTS I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT ARE… I love Ultraceuticals because they really work. Also, evening primrose oil has a multitude of benefits.

MY HAIRCARE SECRET IS… Well, it took me years to come around to buying quality hair products, but now I’ve found Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner, I haven’t looked back – it’s is so amazing for dry hair. I also can’t be without Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to calm my heat-fried locks.

THE MUST-HAVE PRODUCTS IN MY MAKEUP BAG ARE… MAC for lippy – loving Outrageously Fun which is possibly the brightest purply pink colour ever. Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation has been a long-standing essential, and also Estée Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara, which is a bit OTT for everyday wear, but who cares? Finally, because I have a habit of chewing my lips making them dry, Lucas’ Papaw Ointment comes in handy most days.

MY FAVOURITE BEAUTY TREAT IS… Definitely a sleep-in. Also, I really look forward to a regular facial/treatment every couple of months. Complete time out and pure bliss.

MY BIGGEST BEAUTY SIN IS… Clear Eyes Eyedrops. I use them every day.

THE BEST THING MY MOTHER TAUGHT ME ABOUT BEAUTY WAS… that looking after yourself emotionally is at least as important as anything that’s skin deep. Happiness is the best beauty treatment.
