Beauty with the stars

Dancing with the Stars contestant Lorraine Downes lets us in on her beauty secrets.

What is your daily skincare routine and how good are you at sticking to it? oy skincare routine is very basic but I do keep to it! Every night, I use a cleanser and I finish with rosehip oil as a nourishing night treatment. In the morning I use a moisturiser. I think the most important thing is to wear a sunscreen every day, especially during the summer months. You have to wear pretty heavy make-up on the show.

**How long does it take to get your hair and make-up done each night?

**This is a tricky question to answer as we go into the make-up room and then we have to leave to rehearse before going back into make-up, but I would say it takes around two hours in total.

You all look lovely and bronzed on the show – do you have to wear body make-up to achieve this? How is it applied and what does it feel like to wear? I have a spray tan done each week at Salute Hair & Day Spa in Lower Hutt. It looks very natural. I exfoliate between sessions so it doesn’t get blotchy.

What is the one beauty product you just can’t live without? I darken my eyebrows because, as I have aged, my eyebrows have become lighter and finer. I use a brush-on brow product.
