centainemclean

This 27 year old baby mumma, Centaine Mclean has a #goals worthy beauty line up. With 7 years behind her of working in cosmetic retail there are no surprises that she know's what she's talking about and that her collection is this good. 

 

TSB: WHAT IS YOUR SKIN TYPE?

CENTAINE: My skin type is pretty normal but prone to breakouts and eczema. 

 

TSB: WHAT is your morning routine?

CENTAINE: In the morning I cleanse with a gentle cream cleanser that I remove with a cloth. I always use an exfoliating toner (love the REN  AHA Tonic), La Mer Treatment Lotion and a hydrating serum. I follow with a moisturiser and sometimes an oil if my skin is on the drier side.

 

TSB: TELL ME ABOUT YOUR NIGHTLY ROUTINE?

CENTAINE: At night is when I use my actives. I remove my makeup with the Kate Somerville Cold Cream and then cleanse with a gel cleanser. I’ll either use my retinol or Drunk Elephant TLC Serum which I alternate between. I really treat my skin on a day by day basis depending on what it needs so my treatment products change regularly. However, I’ll always follow up with a hydrating serum, moisturiser and oil.

TSB: what is your number one product you cant live without?

CENTAINE: Definitely La Mer Treatment Lotion (closely followed by Drunk Elephant TLC). It just leaves my skin so plump and happy and it helps with my redness. 

 

TSB: whats on your beauty wish list currently?

CENTAINE: On my beauty wishlist right now is the La Mer cushion foundation, Dior Face and Body Foundation, Dr Barbara Sturm Glow Drops and about a million Charlotte Tilbury things!

TSB: whats your beauty advice?

CENTAINE: Sunscreen every single day! Even if your have the most basic of skincare routines, sunscreen is the best anti aging product you can use. 

 

tsb: what is your got-to makeup look?

CENTAINE: My go to makeup look is simple and glowy. A tinted moisturiser (I love the Chanel one), my Glossier Stretch Concealer, dewy colour on the cheeks also by Glossier, cream highlighter on my cheek bones, fluffy brows, one colour diffused on the lids and loads of mascara. I’ll usually opt for a tinted lipbalm (Mecca Cosmetica do my favourite) or a shiny, sheer lipstick. 

 

TSB: what is your signature scent?

CENTAINE: My signature scent I can no longer buy in Oz which is heartbreaking; Serge Luten’s Jeux de Peau. I love anything Vanilla-y.

TSB: if you had to choose... skincare or makeup?

CENTAINE: Skincare every time! I’m totally comfortable makeup free and love the look of healthy, glowing skin. 

 

TSB: what is your go-to face mask?

CENTAINE: My go to mask is definitely Fresh Vitamin Nectar mask. It’s what I reach for when my skin needs a boost or I have an event. My skin is absolutely radiant afterwards.
