‘I don’t necessarily go for the brand because it’s a “good brand”. I like high functioning products… I don’t want to put loads of chemicals and junk on my skin. I like to be able when you look at the ingredients to go “oh I actually know what that is,” instead of some weird concoction of badness. I do think about that sort of thing.’
Holly Willoughby turned up to record her Beauty Full Lives interview with a piece of paper in her hand on which she’d written a list of products she wanted to mention. ‘That’s the sign of a busy lady,’ Holly explained.
And busy she is: between presenting This Morning and I’m A Celebrity… and appearing on Celebrity Juice, Holly works with Garnier (more on which below), Diet Coke GB, and M & S – and is also a mum of three.
To Holly, beauty therefore has to be highly functioning and, ideally, not contain the aforementioned unnecessary chemicals. Her product choices reflect this and include a cruelty-free lipstick that offers hydration and rosy colour in one and an eyeshadow stick that doubles up as a liner and comes with a smudging brush attached.
In this episode. Holly talks about her first impressions of beauty, how starting her career so young helped her to gain confidence, and, of course, runs through her list of must-haves.
Products Holly mentions include:
Caudalie Beauty Elixir
Vita Liberata Body Blur HD Skin Finish
Eyeko Me & My Shadow Waterproof Shadow Liner in Bronze
Lily Lolo Brow Duo Pencil Light
Burt’s Bees Lipstick in Blush Basin
