We delve into Jaime’s beauty bag to find out her make-up and skincare must-haves.
As a model, reality star, jewellery designer, PR exec and now fashion editor for Remix magazine, Jaime Ridge has a lot going on! Not afraid to share her glamorous life with her fans, she uses her Instagram account as a creative outlet to show off (to her 40k+ followers) what’s hot, and what’s not.
Jaime takes being in the spotlight in her stride and maintains a down to earth persona, which carries over to her beauty routine too. ‘My beauty philosophy is that I just try to keep my products and everything as natural as possible,’ she says.
We got the lowdown on some of her best beauty tips, bargains, and products she can’t live without…
I don’t have too many skin care concerns, I am quite lucky like that. However I do get slightly oily skin sometimes but to be honest its not a major issue.
I use my Clarisonic Mia 2 Facial Cleasing Brush, $225, twice a day. It’s the most amazing skin cleanser tool ever! I also love my Avene Gentle Gel Cleanser, $43.70. Both keep my skin clean and fresh. In terms of facial moisturiser, I just use Johnsons Baby Lotion, $3.99. It sounds silly, but it’s fantastic for my skin and I love it!
FAKE TAN? YAY OR NAY?
I am really strange I know… but I don’t use fake tan! I just don’t like the way it feels or looks to be honest. I prefer to tan naturally or just be pale!
Probably my moisturiser, oh, and my Rawleighs! They are my lifesavers! I just hate having dry lips and hands, I think it feels awful. I take them everywhere with me.
WHAT DO YOU DO USE ON YOUR EYES?
I am terrible with my eyes… actually shocking! But when I do try to play them up I use my Smashbox ‘Smokebox’ eye pallet, $75, and my Benefit ‘Hoola’ Bronzer, $53, which doubles as an eye shadow and a bronzer – it’s amazing! I also use Benefit ‘Fake Up’ Under Eye Concealer, $45, to brighten up under my eyes. I also love mascaras! In particular, Dior Show Mascara, MAC Zoom Lash, $34, and Benefits ‘They’re Real’ Lengthening Mascara, $45. I go between all three.
I don’t really wear lipstick. I just use my Rawleighs on my lips. However if I were to use a lipstick, I guess I would use either Benefits Posie Balm, $34, MAC shade in Hue $40, or Smashbox in Posy Pink, $45, as they’re all subtle nude/light pink colours.
YOUR GO-TO FOUNDATION?
I have three different go to foundations! When I’m paler in winter I use Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in Beige Sable. In summer I switch between MAC ‘Studio Fix’ Fluid, $60, and Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation, $75, in shade 3.1. I do have one go to highlighting primer though – Benefits ‘Girl Meets Pearl, $57, is incredible!
My favourite daytime perfumes would be Miss Dior, $164, Angel by Thierry-Mugler, and Chanel Chance, $180. For night time, I tend to go with Coco Chanel Mademoiselle, and Fendi L’Acquarossa. I probably have about 50 different fragrances! I like to mix it up.
I am very lucky! I have an amazing hairdresser called Hala from Wolf & Wolf, whom often treats my hair once a month. I also get it cut around once a month so that also keeps it super healthy. I use Kevin Murphy Stimulate.Me Wash, $48 and Young.Again Rinse, $48, which are great for my hair. I make sure I brush it in the shower when it’s full of conditioner.
YOUR BEAUTY PHILOSOPHY?
I tend to go for less is more approach. I just try to keep my products and face as natural as possible. I believe that skin needs to breath.
