Northern Irish freelance broadcaster and journalist, Claire McCollum shares her beauty tips with GO…
What are your make-up bag constants?
Body Shop lip liner in Beech. I’ve been wearing it forever and can’t live without it! Also Yves Saint Laurent Teint Parfait no. 5 is superb. I combine it with Chanel Perfection Lumiere no 4 to give a good overall coverage, I wouldn’t leave the house without it on!
What is your favourite luxury product?
My YSL and Chanel foundation would be my only luxury products. Other than that it’s cheap and cheerful.
What is your favourite bargain product?
Its got to be the Pound Shop fake tan called ‘Fake Don’t Bake’, it’s a total bargain and simple to apply. Even I can’t mess it up.
What is your one ‘desert island’ make-up product?
Moisturiser with sunscreen.
Have you ever had a make-up disaster?
I honestly don’t think so, but maybe I have had plenty and people are just too kind to say.
Describe your beauty routine?
I always take my make-up off before bed even if it’s really late. I love getting the days muck off and feeling clean fresh skin. I have to be honest and say I don’t use cleanser all the time; I’m definitely guilty of using the odd baby wipe. I also moisturise my whole body every day. I’m hoping it will help on the preservation front later on.
What are your favourite facial products?
I tend to use whatever cleansing facial scrub I can find. At the minute it’s “Clean and Clear Morning Energy” which helps wake me up too! I’m also loving Lidl’s “Cien, Day Cream Q10”.
