What’s in Pearl Thusi’s make-up bag?

Tuesday, 4 June 2013

What’s keeping you busy right now?

Where to begin? Isidingo, presenting on Live Amp and RGB as well as Metro FM and of course my biggest job – being a mom!

What’s the one cosmetic item you simply can’t live without?

My pet peeve is having dry skin or cracked lips so I always carry a hand cream and lip balm.

If we were to sneak a peek into your make-up bag, what would we find in there?

Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant. I always carry red lipstick on me! Currently I’m using L’Oréal Colour Riche. I also have the Diesel LoverDose fragrance and the Kiehl’s hand lotion.

And facial skin care? What are your favourite products?

I love cleansers that are gentle and have microfoliants in them that give me a nice exfoliation. I try to stay away from harsh toners with lots of alcohol in them. My moisturiser is also very gentle. The more gentle the product, the better. I also started using eye-cream from an early age.

How do you take care of that bod?

I live quite a busy life so that keeps me active, but I also walk my dogs and do Bikram Yoga. On top of that I eat what I need. I drink a lot of water before I eat and I’ve taught myself to recognise when I feel full so that I don’t overeat.

What products do you use on your hair?

I’m always out to try something new until I find that one product that works for me. Things I’m trying right now are Mizani, and L’Oréal also has some amazing products to tame curly, unruly hair.

And perfumes?

Lady Gaga Fame, Diesel LoverDose, Taylor Swift Wonderstruck, Pleasures and Armani Code.

What nail polish colours are you rocking at the mo’?

I love every colour. But now that we are going into winter I’m into richer, darker colours. Yellow will always sneak in somehow though.

Who’s in your Little Black Book of Beauty?

Meryl Streep, Beyoncé, Basetsana Kumalo, Kerry Washington…. there are so many beautiful people – the list is endless.

What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever received?

Drink lots of water! I also believe that your beauty is enhanced by actions that have nothing to do with how you treat your body. Be kind – that’s beautiful!

    I love Pearl Thusi. And now I’m thinking maybe I should use eye cream too. Especially with the little sleep I’m getting.
