From winning Miss Universe Australia in 2010 and finishing second runner-up in Miss Universe 2010, to publishing her own book called Live a Beautiful Life and appearing as a contestant on The Celebrity Apprentice Australia, Jesinta Franklin (formerly known as Jesinta Campbell) has established herself as one of Australia's ones to watch.
Her latest project saw her launch a beauty and lifestyle app that covers off topics like beauty, wellness, health, fitness, and even a dedicated question category called ‘Ask Me’.
“I'm so excited to finally launch my app, it took a long time to get it off the ground,” says Franklin. “There is just so much involved in development and lots of back and forth with the team that was developing it for me. I wanted it to look really beautiful, be really easy to navigate and user-friendly as well.”
Unsurprisingly, given her career in the spotlight, Jesinta is a serious beauty buff: "the beauty section [on the app] is really fun, [there are] lots of tutorials [with] hero products [and a] a direct link to go and buy that. Beauty is just so fun, I just enjoy it and I love everyone that I get to work with in the industry. I feel like it's a little transformation whenever you get your hair and makeup done, you can feel like a different person," she told us during an exclusive interview.
Here, the Gold Coast-born celebrity shares her favourite beauty products of all time. *Adds everything to cart immediately*.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless Foundation
“Usually on my days off, I don't wear liquid foundation at all. I only ever used to wear powdered foundation, but this one is great because it is not too thick and you can still see your skin. I really love when you can see your skin underneath the foundation.”
Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips 2 in Patsy Red
“It's a really good red lipstick, and it’s the one thing I always have in my handbag because it can just transform any look… even if you've got no makeup on.”
Aveda Air Control Hair Spray
"I just love that it’s chemical-free, because there are so many fumes in [other] hairsprays. I really love the smell of it too, it doesn't have that typical hairspray smell.”
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Serum
“[This serum] makes my skin look really nice, plump and radiant. It’s got a really nice texture as well. I don't do a lot with my skin. I have a really consistent beauty regimen that I stick to, no matter what. I don't get a lot of treatments. If I get a facial, it is more for just ‘me’ time and relaxation."
