Jeannie D needs no introduction. One of SA’s most loved television personalities, she’s graced countless magazine covers and can be spotted every Tuesday night, looking glamtastic on Top Billing.
Now, we get her to dish on a few of her beauty secrets and take a nosy peek inside her make-up bag…
So tell us, what’s keeping you busy right now?
I’m working on an exciting new TV show at the moment and writing a book. I’m also flying to Vegas next week to cover the red carpet at the Emmy Awards, so life is fabulous at the moment. I’m also starting to train as I’ve been invited to climb Mount Everest!
If we were to turf out your make-up bag, what would we find in there?
Because I shoot almost every day and MC functions most nights my make-up bag resembles a panel-beating kit for on the go touch ups so here goes… MAC Studio Fix liquid foundation, MAC Studio Fix powder, MAC Surf Baby Studio Careblend pressed powder bronzer in gold Go Lightly, MAC Wonderwoman limited edition lipsticks, TIGI Bed Head Player blush and TIGI Bed Head Big Fat Fun black eye pencil.
What are your favourite facial skincare products?
I use Guinot Hydrallergic Gentle cleaner, Guinot Refreshing toning lotion with rose extracts and Guinot Hydrazone moisturiser.
And how’d you take care of that bod?
No products on this bod I’m afraid, just sweat and tears! Sugar is the devil and salt guarantees a fat ass, so cut them out of your diet and your on your way to looking hot!
What products do you use on your hair?
I haven’t washed my own hair in years! Palladium in the Cape Quarter makes sure my hair looks and feels like silk!
Which perfumes do you wear?
Im a perfume fiend! My fave is Thierry Mulger Alien, Prada by Prada, Gucci Envy Me and Gucci by Gucci.
What nail polish colours are you rocking at the mo?
I’m going through a purple phase, but I love a ‘Barbie’ pink on a warm day.
Who’s in your little black book of beauty?
Palladium – their service and skill is unrivalled
What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever received or have to give?
Look after your skin when you’re young and it will stay fresh and beautiful for the rest of your life.
And now we’re going to ask you a few of the questions we got from our readers:
What’s your night time beauty routine?
I cleanse, tone and moisturise every morning and night and don’t go to sleep with my make-up on.
Which self-tan do you use?
I don’t use self-tan. I used it once and had orange hands for a week… I’m naturally dark.
How’d you keep your bod in such tip-top shape?
I keep to a strict diet and exercise regularly.
And last, but not least, where’d you get your fabulous shoes from?
I travel very often so I make sure that I’m stocked up on stunning shoes from all over the world! I love that shoes always fit, even when you’re having a fat day!
