My day in beauty with Tara O’Farrell: ‘Your skin will thank you for this!’

My day in beauty with Tara O’Farrell: ‘Your skin will thank you for this!’

Tara O’Farrell is an Instagram star, expert make-up artist and one of the incredible IMAGE Beauty Festival speakers – truly sitting among the international industry A-list. Here, we ask her about her personal beauty favourites 


“I start the day by cleansing my skin, and usually pop on a couple of drops of Trilogy Rosehip Oil for a quick boost of hydration.

“I am really trying to wear SPF every day so I usually apply the Image SPF then. Lip balm goes everywhere with me and a mini perfume.”

“The Elemis serum has to be one of the most amazing serums I have ever tried, it absorbs in to the skin immediately and I have noticed a big difference in my skin.”

“Ultrapure Witchhazel is so affordable and for someone with oily skin like me it’s amazing for pores and absorbing excess oil.”

Tara’s top skincare tip

“Always double cleanse and as boring as it sounds drink at least two litres of water a day. Your skin will thank you for this!”
