Margaret de Heinrich de Omorovicza, the co-founder of luxury natural skincare brand, Omorovicza, on her life in beauty //
“I met my husband, Stephen, when I was working as a Diplomat. We were both inspired to create Omorovicza after visiting the Budapest healing waters. We started with eight products – basically, everything you need for a classic facial. Bestselling Rejuvenating Night Cream, Queen of Hungary Mist and the Deep Cleansing Mask were all part of this group.
In terms of make-up, I couldn’t live without the Omorovicza Mineral Touch Concealer, a lipstick (currently Nars Rose Gitane), Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, Cle de Peau highlighter, and a Chanel Illusion D’Ombre eyeshadow pot. For hair, I currently love Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray.
Outside of using products, I look after myself by playing tennis, running, and taking classes at Core Collective. If I’m at a spa, it’s likely to be Shutters on the Beach in California, or the Mayr Clinic, both of which I really rate. In terms of eateries, I love Café Kor when we’re in Budapest, and the Chiltern Firehouse in London.
The thing about being an entrepreneur is that you can never truly switch off – even if you are lucky enough to have a fantastic team. A huge sense of responsibility and ambition come along with having your own business. My advice to others starting out would be to plan for growth from an early stage – you need an idea of how you can scale your business and solid production capabilities. We fell down on the latter early on and it caused many headaches.
If I had to choose a motto to represent my attitude, it’d be: ‘it is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.’ “
