Cher’s Skincare Essentials

My skincare routine always starts with the Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, it’s so efficient and easy to use. The balmy texture cleanses my skin so deeply, removing the daily grime and impurities and leaving my skin feeling plumped and hydrated. Eye cream is always the second step and one I never skip. Murad Vita-C Eyes Dark Circle Corrector instantly reduces puffiness and discolouration while delivering a powerful burst of antioxidant protection. It’s a light reflecting formula and creates a smooth canvas for your concealer.

Next up is serum, another must, and a favourite of mine is Sarah Chapman Skinesis Age-repair Serum. This collagen-stimulating cocktail firms, plumps, targets uneven texture and helps to smooth fine lines. My skin also loves Dr Dennis Gross products, particularly the Hyaluronic Marine Oil-Free Moisture Cushion, which adds maximum hydration to thirsty skin and feels super lightweight and fresh.

No matter the weather I always use sun protection and Ultra Violette Queen Screen Luminising Sun Serum SPF 50+ is my current go-to. Not only does it protect your skin, but it adds radiance with its unique glow-boosting. Finally, I finish with the fabulous smoothing and slightly plumping Omorovicza Perfecting Lip Balm.

The Makeup Must-Haves She Uses

I love my skin to look perfected but real and have a healthy glow that lasts all day. My go-to base is Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturizer SPF15, which I apply with fingertips and blend in with Shiseido Daiya Fude Face Duo Brush. I brighten my under-eye area and smooth out redness with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer Duo - it’s always in my makeup bag for on-the-go touch ups. For my eyes, I like to use a highlighter on the lids for a quick and simple sheen. I always curl my lashes and then apply By Terry Lash-Expert Twist Brush Mascara, which is a desert island must-have.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer is my go-to for an instant sun-kissed glow. You can naturally shape and contour your face in seconds. I usually follow with NARS Blush in Orgasm on the apples of the cheeks - I’ve used this shade for years, it’s iconic. Chantecaille Lip Chic gives my lips a lovely balmy look and feel.

The finishing touch I can't live without is fragrance. Throughout lockdown, fragrance was the biggest mood-lifter and I love that a single spritz can remind you of a certain person or time in your life. One fragrance that has the power to transport you to a sunny destination is Atelier Cologne Pacific Lime Cologne.

The Beauty Essentials In Cher’s Kit

Regardless of the time of year, I always carry a Dermalogica Anti-Oxidant Hydramist in my makeup kit and a small travel size in my everyday handbag. You’ll also find one in my fridge and another in my car. A spritz of this pre or post makeup gives your skin a boost of hydration.

As for makeup, I love an all-in-one face palette and By Terry Brightening CC Palette is one that I’ve purchased over and again and is a staple product not only in my personal makeup bag but also my makeup artistry kit. I just love the convenience of having everything in one compact and the tones in the CC Palette's work beautifully together on both the face and eyes, dressing up a look in seconds.

Her Two-Minute Transformation Tip

A good eyeliner or bold lip will instantly amp up you look in minutes! Charlotte Tilbury Rock 'n' Kohl Eyeliner in Barbarella Brown is the perfect intense chocolate brown shade that compliments every eye colour and skin tone. It's the perfect alternative to black and you can work this around the top and lower lash line for instant definition and drama. The waterproof texture glides onto the skin and you can smudge and diffuse with your fingertips.

If you’d rather go down the statement lip route, I love a shade that requires minimal effort and stands the test of time. The NARS Air Matte Lip Colour shades have the longest staying power with vivid colours that feel so lovely to wear. Mad Rush is the perfect punchy, orange-red and I love to pair this with minimal makeup – just a healthy glowing skin, groomed brow, soft highlights and a sweep of mascara.

The Best Makeup Tip Cher Wants You To Employ

When wearing a bright lip, start by applying your lip pencil all over your lips first, then add your lipstick on top. Finish by going back on the pencil to perfect the lip line. This layering technique helps to lock in the shade and prevents bleeding. Plus, your lipstick and lip liner will slowly fade at the same time.

Also, curling lashes. If I was on my way to a makeup job and I had left my lash curlers at home I would 100% turn back! The before and after and the difference in the lash length and curl is off the scale. By curling your lashes, you are giving your mascara a massive head start. I love Surratt Relevee Lash Curler – I’ve got a pair on my dressing table, one in the bathroom and in my makeup bag.
