My Beauty Secrets: Aimie Fiebig

Freelance make-up artist Aimie Fiebig shares her beauty essentials.

Aimie Fiebig (35) is a freelance make-up artist who lives in Auckland.

My beauty philosophy is… Laugh and love lots. Be kind. Always wear sunscreen.

The skincare products I can’t live without are… Eve Lom cleanser for morning and night – it feels so nourishing and gentle. For day, I use Dr Hauschka Rose day Cream as it gives you a healthy, hydrated glow. For evening, I love Synergie SuperSerum followed by Benefit Total Moisture – it’s so luxurious and thick, it’s my perfect night cream. No matter what, I always use Benefit It’s Potent! beneath my eyes.

My haircare secret is… The ever-so talented team at D&M Hair Design. I’ve been going to them for years and it’s always fun and welcoming, and they know how to tame my unruly mane. Also, I have quite sensitive skin so Davines Shampoo is essential!

The must-have products in my make-up bag are… I tend to shy away from much make-up in daylight. I use a tinted moisturiser with an SPF and Benefit They’re Real! Mascara on my lashes as it lengthens and thickens, and for my lips just some Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream or Clarins HydraQuench Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm. At night, lipstick is my go-to make-up, and you’ll find all sorts in my bag. I can’t go past my Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturising Lipstick in Red Door Red.

My beauty treat is… A smoothie from Little Bird Unbakery, a good night’s sleep and I love doing my own nails.

My biggest beauty sin… Not drinking enough water. And as a teenager, I had terrible skin and thought the scorching sun would fix it.

The best thing my Mum taught me about beauty is… Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise!
