With lockdown slowly easing, we decided to ask influencer, podcaster and contributing editor to Tatler, Amelia Liana about the beauty buys and rituals that have helped keep her mood elevated over the past three months.
“Scents have always been incredibly important to me, but during the lockdown that have really helped to boost my mood,” says Amelia. “Everything is scented, from the products I use in my bath to the formulas I put on my face. It’s such an important part of my beauty routine.” Keep reading to discover Amelia’s fragrance cocktail for the bath, as well as the two makeup essentials that enhance her glow…
My Morning Bath Recipe
During the lockdown I completed the nine week Couch to 5k challenge and I can now actually run half an hour without a stitch, which is huge progress for me. Running is now my favourite way to start the day and I never thought I would be the person to say that. When I get back from my run I love to have a bath to relax and soak my muscles.
Olverum’s Bath Oil has become a real favourite of mine. It’s made with natural essential oils and it smells like a natural forest with pine cones and greenery. I sprinkle in some of Susanne Kaufmann Herbal Whey Bath to make my bath all milky. My skin comes out feeling super soft and nourished.
Every few days I’ll use Tata Harper’s jelly textured Resurfacing Mask while I’m in the bath. I’ve been wearing a lot of SPF recently and this helps to smooth out and gently exfoliate my skin.
My Smoothing & Softening Skincare Routine
The Vintner’s Daughter’s Active Botanical Serum has such a hype around it, but oh my god it is worth it. The lightweight oil serum absorbs so quickly and it makes such a difference to my skin. It’s one of those steps that when I forget to do it, I really notice the difference. I always follow with By Terry’s classic Baume de Rose Face Cream. Even if you don’t like the smell of rose, this cream will convert you because it’s so delicate, fresh and light. Plus, your skin is left feeling incredible.
My Glow Boosting Makeup Essentials
If I need something to help lift my mood and my complexion almost instantly, or if I’m popping out now that lockdown has eased, I look to two of Chantecaille’s glow-getting products. I find pink hues really flattering on my skin and the Cheek & Highlighter Duo in Rose looks so subtle and natural, but at the same time it has the ability to totally transform your face. The second product is the Lip Tint in Beach Rose. It’s really balmy, really hydrating and wakes up your complexion when you apply it.
