Beauty Talk: Hourglass Founder Carisa Janes Shares Her Beauty Secrets
As the brand vows to go vegan by 2020, we caught up with its visionary founder and CEO to get a few beauty tricks and secrets.
1/7 It's all about the basics
"Every woman should have a high-performance foundation. The right one can instantly make skin look younger and healthier."
2/7 Double the drama
"I learned from make-up artist Gloria Noto to use our Curator Lash Instrument to brush mascara onto false lashes before applying the lashes. It enhances the look while still appearing natural and not overdone."
3/7 Just a hint of tint
"Make-up tints made to be worn overnight. You wake up the next morning with a natural flush or subtle stain on the lips. You can literally say, “I woke up like this!”"
4/7 Protect your skin
"Wear more sunscreen. It’s much easier to take preventative steps than to try to turn back time on sun damage."
5/7 Go nude
"I love nude shades. My daytime go-to is the Girl Lip Stylo in Peacemaker. On a night out, I wear the Confession Ultra Slim Lipstick in "I Lust For". The gold applicator makes it the ultimate lip accessory."
6/7 Don't fly without this
"I always fly with a deeply hydrating sheet mask, and am testing a few products to be added to our Equilibrium skincare line which feature phosphatidylglycerol, a powerful ingredient that’s key to cell regeneration."
7/7 Prime, prime, prime
"My favourite Hourglass product is the Veil Mineral Primer. I can’t live without it. It fixes everything, from redness to fine lines, and helps foundation last all day."
