Journalist and co-host of The High Low podcast Pandora Sykes shares her beauty must-haves with Holly O'Neill.
My weird make-up hack is... I use lipstick or lipgloss on my cheeks and also the tip of my nose, in winter, for that “freshly cold” look.
The last beauty item I bought... was Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation, €45 – having never worn foundation before, I realised, aged 30, I needed it!
My signature scent... I have several. I love Molecule 01 by Escentric Molecules, €82, Santal 33 by Le Labo, €222, and anything unisex or for men by Loewe.
My hair favourites are... L’Oréal Tecni.ART Fix Anti-Frizz hairspray, €13.90, L’Oréal Paris EverStrong Thickening Shampoo, €6.50, and Conditioner, €6.5, and Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray, €31.
The beauty appointment I never miss is...Getting my highlights and roots done.
The worst beauty mistake I ever made was... Bleaching my hair. I looked like a baby hamster.
The first thing I put on my skin in the morning is... Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser, €15.
The last thing I do before going to bed while pregnant is... was smother my bump, breasts and bum in Bio-Oil, €18.32.
Everyone should try... an Elemis massage. Heaven.
The best beauty advice I ever received was... To use lip-liner. I love Spice by MAC, €17.50.
My lifelong lipstick love is... I am a lipstick whore! Pink, peach or red - love them all.
I never travel without... Earplugs and paracetamol.
I remove my make-up with...Garnier Micellar Water, €2.79.
The first beauty product I ever bought was... An Impulse body spray.
I’ve always wanted to... Be able to do my own hair like [London hairdressers] Hershesons do it!
My all-time favourite moisturiser is... Avène Tolérance Extrême Cream, €21.99.
I feel most beautiful when... I'm on holiday, with a tan.
I would really like to try... Micro-blading, but I’m too scared.
My favourite nail varnish is... Essie. I like bright red or navy.
To me, being healthy means... Being well-rested and well-fed.
My three current obsessions are... are Elemis Aching Muscle Super Bath Soak, €47.50, the tobacco-scented candle by Malin+Goetz, €44, and Riverdale on Netflix.
