My Beauty Secrets: Leah Light

Celebrity nail stylist Leah Light shares her beauty secrets.

MY BEAUTY PHILOSOPHY IS…

My beauty regime is all about staying as natural as I can, while emphasising my favourite features. I’m not a huge fan of foundation, so tend to keep my make-up more natural, focusing on the eyes and brows.

THE SKINCARE PRODUCTS I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT ARE….

O Cosmedics Skincare (1). I have been using their whole range for two years now, and my skin is the best it’s ever been. I’m also a huge fan of

Lucas’ Papaw Ointment and Pure Fiji’s Nourishing Exotic Oil (2).

My must-have nail product would be Dadi Oil – it’s brilliant if you have nails that peel and crack. With 21 essential oils it is absorbed quickly, enhances flexibility and prevents brittleness.

MY HAIRCARE SECRET IS… ghd hair irons (3). In all honesty, I could not live without them. I have naturally curly hair and always straightened it with a dryer. The day ghds came along, they changed my world and I have never looked back.

THE MUST-HAVE PRODUCTS IN MY MAKE-UP BAG ARE… YSL Touche Éclat Concealer (4) – in my opinion it’s the best concealer in the world. Pressed Bronzer by Doll Face Mineral Make-up (5). Bella Bamba Blusher by Benefit along with their Girl Meets Pearl Highlighter. And I love MAC’s Superslick Liquid Eyeliner in black and False Lashes Mascara (6).

MY FAVOURITE BEAUTY TREAT IS… Given that I never get time to pamper myself, I most enjoy a haircut or a relaxing full-body massage.

MY BIGGEST BEAUTY SIN IS…

Not drinking enough water – it’s the one thing I really struggle to do.

THE BEST THING MY MOTHER TAUGHT ME ABOUT BEAUTY WAS…

No matter how beautiful you are on the outside, if you live with negativity, no-one will ever see your true beauty.
