Cassie Stokes’ Day in Beauty: ‘I can’t believe how much my skin has improved’

Cassie Stokes’ Day in Beauty: ‘I can’t believe how much my skin has improved’

XPOSÉ presenter Cassie Stokes believes firmly in the power of brows, trusts The Skin Nerd with her glow and swears by her SPF


NERDY KNOWLEDGE

“The Skin Nerd, aka Jennifer Rock, has been a great help when it comes to making my skin look less terrible. I didn’t really know what products to be using until I had a consultation with her. I actually can’t believe how much my skin has improved over the last few months, it’s less dry and actually has a bit of a glow,” says Cassie.

A SOLID ROUTINE

“In the morning I usually cleanse my skin using a Cleanse Off Mitt, and tone using the Pixi Glow Tonic. After that I spritz with any water spray and then I apply Environ 1 Moisturiser. I use Environ eye gel around my eyes too. I left those two settle in before I apply my sun protection, usually I use Image Skincare SPF.”

“Because of my job I have to wear makeup all day long, so my skin really does get dehydrated really quickly. At night I try and get my makeup off as soon as I get home because my face has been covered with it all day long. I usually apply a mask, Seoulista or any mask I can find that’s made in Korea – they’re the best!”

TIRED SKIN REMEDY

“Since I started using Environ moisturisers, I’ve been getting so many compliments on my skin, so that’s how I know it’s working. Even when I’m exhausted and feel like I look dead on the outside my skin doesn’t, so this is a must-have for me now,” says Cassie.

MASKING THE ISSUE

“Seoulista masks are my go-to. I find as soon as I put a mask on I completely chill out. I do them at least twice a week. Your skin is literally glowing after one of these. I find they’re life savers for the second day of a wedding when you’re tired and a little hungover and your skin is just not cooperating the way it should,” she says.

Seoulista Instant Facial masks, €8.99

Pixi Glow Tonic, €23.50

CASSIE’S TOP SKINCARE TIP

“As much as it pains me to do it before bed especially after I’ve fallen asleep on the couch, I take off my makeup, just get it off your face so your skin can take time to relax. I cannot tell you how much my skin has improved (especially around my eyes) since taking the time every single night to take my makeup off.”

AFFORDABLE QUALITY

“I love Carter Beauty foundation. I don’t know how Marissa has done it but she has managed to make a top quality foundation for an affordable price. I tried the foundation for the first time last week and I’m hooked. I’m used to a light coverage, this one is a little heavier but in the best way possible. It doesn’t feel heavy at all and still looks very natural.”

Carter Beauty Full Measure Foundation, €9.95

PROTECTION IS KEY

“My Image Skincare SPF product is always with me. All the beauty experts say it, so it must be true! SPFs are so important for anti-aging. I use this as a primer, I don’t know if this is right or whether this is a primer, but that’s what I use and it works!”

CASSIE’S TOP MAKEUP TIP

“Mark Rogers from Benefit says the most important thing is eyebrows, and I agree! I always do my eyebrows, even if I’m going to the gym or just for a walk. Eyebrows make a huge difference to my face.”
