Want to know the beauty secrets of BeautyMart co-founder and ex-Vogue Beauty Director, Anna-Marie Solowij? Fiona McKim takes a deep-dive into her beauty cupboard.
Aveeno Daily Moisturising After-Shower Mist, £7.50
“I’m a late convert to this spray-on body lotion, which is bloody amazing! I’m very lazy about looking after my body skin, but this really makes a difference to the texture, it’s transformed it.”
Made for Life Daily Radiance Facial Cleansing Balm, £32
“My absolute favourite balm cleanser by an organic brand based in Cornwall. It’s a really lovely thick yellow buttery balm, I massage with it in the bath and it just helps send me to sleep with the smell and comfort of it.”
Sisley Eye Contour Mask, £90
“I’ve probably got 20 eye creams on the go, I’m not kidding. I make an assessment based on what my eyes are like that morning. This works well if your eyes are dehydrated, I pop a small amount on and it’s fine with makeup over the top.”
Chanel Les 4 Ombres Eye Shadow in Candeur et Expérience, £44
“I get why compacts with 95,000 colours are great for young girls who love experimenting and taking selfies, but I’m more of a one or two shades person. This combination is very clever, you can get an awful lot of looks out of these four colours.”
Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil, £49
“I use this all the time, to the extent that I don’t even wear perfume any more and people think that that is my perfume. It’s the thing that keeps me sane and has done for many years.”
Christophe Robin Cleansing Volumising Paste, £42.50
“I use this once a week as a scalp treatment with exfoliation, although it doesn’t feel scratchy in any way. It’s a weird gummy paste with rassoul mud and rose, at first you look at it and think “ugh” but you put it on and it foams up and feels amazing.”
