Beauty Bag
-Marietta Doran

Marietta is one of Ireland’s top fashion stylists and personal shopping consultants. She is also the founder and co-producer of the Ireland Fashion Showcase in New York.

I travel quite a lot for work… so because of all the time I spend on the road, I’m more than a little obsessive about what goes into my overnight bag! I have three beauty bags with me at all times – one for liquids, one for makeup and one for necessities (toothbrush, deodorant, etc). I always pack my favourite beauty products including L’Oreal Age Perfect cleanser and toner, Sally Hansen body foundation & MAC Face and Body foundation.

I love looking after my skin… and always enjoy my morning skincare routine. I start the day with my favourite cleanser and toner from L’Oreal Age Perfect. It’s so gentle on the skin and always leaves it feeling clean and fresh.

My must-have products… on a night out would have to be mascara, lip pencil, lip gloss and blusher.

If I were stranded on a desert island…I would have to have eyeliner, mascara and concealer!

I like to treat myself…to a good facial, manicure and my personal favourite, a pedicure.

I love a healthy glow so I prefer to wear a really natural tan. I use Sally Hansen and MAC’s Face & Body Foundation.

I get my hair trimmed regularly…I don’t use hair straighteners and only have my hair blowdried for work. I put a conditioning treatment in my hair at least twice a week to keep it soft and healthy.

There are so many great beauty products available… however, Yves Saint Laurent Touché Éclat is the best beauty product on the market in my opinion. The world-famous, take-anywhere pen brush is perfect for highlighting and refreshing makeup.

I love to keep in shape and I am always on the go. I go walking and running regularly. I especially love hill walking – nothing beats a power walk up a mountain!

My absolute favorite beauty tip…after putting on your lipstick, apply some Touché Éclat to the outside areas of both your top and bottom lip as well as the cupid’s bow, to enhance the focus on a brightly painted mouth.

I am a huge fan of Vitamin E capsules… I put one on my face every night. My skin looks and feels brilliant every morning after them.

I believe that preparation is key… to looking and feeling your best. I am really looking forward to attending The Irish Fashion Innovation Awards in Galway this month. It is one of the biggest and most exciting events on the Irish social calendar so I will be drinking lots of water and getting plenty of beauty sleep so my skin in glowing for the big night. Happy skin is healthy skin!

Television cameras and bright lights…can make a complexion appear much different on screen so good makeup is essential. MAC Studio Face and Body Foundation is a great lightweight foundation and delivers a natural satin finish.

Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara is also great as it is so easy to apply and doesn’t clump.
