Anna Heinrich shares her favourite everyday makeup look

Anna Heinrich Everyday Makeup Routine

And the luxury skin care product she can’t live without

Anna Heinrich is a busy woman. Between working as a practicing lawyer, managing a successful blog and countless media opportunities, the original Bachelor winner is also the face of anti-ageing laser treatment system, Clear + Brilliant. And it’s because of that hectic schedule that we thought she was the perfect person to learn from when it comes to looking great when you’re short on time.

In our exclusive interview with Anna, she reveals her quick everyday makeup look, Holy Grail skin care buys and best beauty advice.

On the importance of a good skin care routine…
“Skin is more important than makeup in my opinion. The skin is the base and if you take care of your skin then your makeup should always look great and be used to enhance your features, not cover them up!”

On her favourite skin care products…
“I love La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Cream as my go-to day/night cream – I find it hydrates my skin and combined with the Clear + Brilliant laser treatments, I feel like my skin is smooth, toned and hydrated.”

On the beauty look that instantly puts her in a good mood…
“Feeling glammed up without being glammed up. A natural, bronzed look. Contouring your face can instantly up the ante in seconds.”

On her summer beauty essentials…
“Definitely sunscreen! It pays to protect your skin in summer. Being sun safe is so important and that's why the ‘slip-slop-slap’ is so important. I like an SPF 50 for Australian sun.”

On her favourite products for a faux glow…
“I am not a huge fake tan kind of girl but for a quick top-up I love tinted moisturisers from Sportsgirl or Sugar Baby…an instant tan that rubs right off before bedtime.”

On her everyday makeup look…
“My five-minute daily makeup look consists of my five faves - light foundation, contouring palette, natural lipstick, mascara for my lashes on the bottom and a killer smile (it tops things off perfectly!).”

On the surprising beauty product she can’t live without…
“It’s not actually a product but a treatment. I’ve recently started getting Clear + Brilliant treatments, which are so easy and quick. It evens out my skin tone and gives my skin a real glow…my wedding prep is underway!”

On the makeup products she always reaches for…
“I use a MAC eyeshadow in the Mulch shade, which is my daily go-to; and I can’t live without my eyelash extensions.”

On how she creates her signature textured locks…
“I first apply a heat protector, then use my Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer to dry it as straight as possible. I then put my hair up in a loose bun while I do my makeup. Once I’m ready to head out the door I use a texturising volume spray at the roots to give it that sexy bed hair look…the messier the better.”

On her best beauty advice…
“Less is more! With good skin treatments and products you should be able to get away with minimal, natural makeup.”
