Time to fess up, ladies- who stayed in last night and spent an evening curled up on the sofa catching up on all the latest TV? Don’t worry, we won’t name and shame you, but if you did indulge in a little sofa action last night, you may well have switched over to Channel 4’s new 6-part series How Not To Get Old, co-hosted by the gorgeous Louise Redknapp. The show looks into how women age and what we can do to keep ourselves looking forever young. Missed out? Set the planner for next week’s ep- it’s every beauty buffs’ TV dream!
The Grazia beauty desk have always been huge fans of the stunning Louise Redknapp and we were over the moon when she launched her own beauty range, Wild About Beauty, towards the end of last year. The range includes serums, lipsticks, eye-shadows and much, much more, plus everything is paraben free and made from natural ingredients. Plus, if they guarantee a glow a la Redknapp, then we’re sold!
With rumours surfacing this week that Louise Redknapp, Easther and Vernette Bennett and Kéllé Bryan, aka 90s girl band Eternal, might be taking to the stage again, it’s safe to say our Louise radar is fully fuelled right now!
Want to know the secrets of Louise’s, ahem, eternal beauty? Just read on, ladies, as we were lucky enough to catch up with the wonderful Louise who revealed her best-ever beauty tips…
Louise's skin is always seriously glowing
Less Is More- “I usually just apply a quick coat of mascara, a touch of my Golden Skin Glow, £21, to make me feel a bit healthier, followed by a dab of By Terry Lip Balm, £35. It's usually all I have time for in the school car park!”
Don’t be Afraid To Skip Foundation- “I don’t use foundation as I find it too heavy, so the Wild about Beauty Sheer Glow Moisture Tint, £22, is perfect as it achieves just the right amount of coverage. The formula is hydrating and lightweight so it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing any product at all.”
She Loves Chantecaille- “I love Chantecaille’s products, the Gel Liner, £28, is easy to apply and the colour is really wearable.”
It’s All About A Light Fragrance Come Summer Days- “I’m not a fan of very heavy perfumes, Burberry Body Tender, £62, suits me perfectly as it’s feminine and light, which is great for summer. And Q Body sprays, £2.29, are great to have by you on busy days – I use them to freshen up after a pilates class or in between meetings.”
There’s always time for some TLC- “After a long day I love nothing more than to unwind in a warm bath. The ESPA Soothing Bath Oil, £13.25, is so relaxing – even after the most hectic day! I then finish with the Sunday Riley Disrobe Body Lotion, £55. It is incredibly moisturising and leaves my skin feeling silky smooth- I can't live without it!”
