Beauty Crew Beauty Editor / May 25 2017

From starring in TV show Neighbours to singing in both pop band Rogue Traders and as a solo artist, to even starting a children’s fashion label Chi Khi and being a mentor on The X Factor Australia, there’s not much Australian beauty Natalie Bassingthwaighte hasn’t done. Here, the singer, actress, TV personality and ambassador for Pantene’s #StrongFromTheCore campaign, shares her best beauty tips.

About being on ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’...

“The hardest thing about being on that show was living without my family, for sure. But aside from that, the food was so hard. The portion sizes and the space between meals were horrendous. Some days it was hard to get out of bed!”

On the biggest lesson she learnt from being on the show…

“I learnt the importance of being a strong role model for my kids and being a team player. I wanted to show them that when you are strong, confident and kind to others you can do anything you put your mind to.”

On what’s coming up next for her…

“I have some really exciting things career wise. I cannot wait. But personally I am taking time to compartmentalise my life, family and work. Being more ‘present’ in all moments and not all over the place.”

On her favourite beauty products…

Pantene Pro-Vitamin Sheer Volume Shampoo and Conditioner – I love this combination as it’s really nourishing and adds the extra volume and shine that I need. I also love my Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Touche Eclat, which is the best concealer and highlighter. Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara - I get huge thick lashes, which I love. And Tegan (Martin) introduced me to the Tangle Teaser for my hair. It is brilliant for me but also my kids, too.”

On her fail-safe red carpet look…

“I always love a smoky eye and nude lip. It is so easy to keep looking good for the whole night.”

On her beauty mantra…

“Treat your mind, body and spirit with love on the inside and out.”

On the beauty rule she always abides by…

“Stay healthy! I think being healthy and strong is the most important rule when it comes to beauty. When your hair, skin, nails and body are strong, you really do look and feel confident.”

On how she relaxes…

“I go to Missie CoCo once a month for a facial. I either get a micro, peel, or Clear + Brilliant laser treatments. This combined with Ultraceuticals, I have noticed my skin has never been better. I also love the relaxing massage treatments at Aurora day spa. They are pure bliss.”
