Susannah’s Minimal Makeup Tutorial

With three kids in school and a hectic career Susannah has become an expert in speedy ‘no makeup’ application.

“I start with a silky foundation and spread it across my fingertips then pat – don’t rub – it across my nose, cheeks, forehead and chin. Patting the foundation on helps to even it out and avoids creating drag lines. Next, a touch of under-eye illuminator, again worked in with the tip of my finger. I apply a small amount of powder blusher to the apples of my cheeks, using a big, soft brush. If I’m feeling super tired I may add a flick of mascara and a slick of lip gloss – but generally I don’t bother.”

So that’s it. All done in 2 minutes!

    Hi Trinny & Susannah

    Could you please tell me the best treatment for sun damage to the face along with fine lines. I have heard about so many treatments, but looking at you both your skin looks great and still natural. Also should I get botox?

    You have mentioned CO2 lazer or something. I live in Australia and I have done my best to keep out of the sun, but the damage has been done in my early years. I am now 49. Can you help me to get the right treatment for my face?

    Thank you.
    Kind Regards

      Hi Donna,

      Great question! There are two substances that really help when applied topically – these are rose hip oil and vitamin C. Pai Skincare does a great organic rose hip oil, or you could try something with a high concentration of rose hip oil plus other skin boosting ingredients such as Tata Harper’s Replenishing Nutrient Complex. Some great vitamin C products include Dr Perricone’s Vitamin C Esta, Dr Sebagh’s Pure Vitamin C Powder Cream or a serum that contains vitamin C amongst other ingredients like REN’s Keep Young an Beautiful.

      For a more heavyweight approach laser therapies are great. The CO2 laser you mention is best for dealing with acne scarring. For sun damage the ‘Aurora’ or IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment is great for dealing with small sun spots on the face, chest and hands. If your discolouration is widespread it might be worth considering a Fraxel (Fraxelated Light) treatment. Be aware that both of these treatments are best done in the winter as they cannot be administered to tanned or sunburnt skin and you must protect your skin from sunlight after treatment. As always, the most important thing is to find a clinic that really knows what they are doing. Don’t be seduced by fancy brochures – get a personal recommendation! In London we go to Dr Sebagh.

      As for Botox – that is a personal choice. It won’t do anything to alleviate sun damage but it might give you a lift by making you look and feel a bit fresher. Just don’t go overboard! x

    I wanted to thank you for all those years of advice!!! I admire you both very very much
    & thank you for having replied to Donna.
    I have an additional question no dermatologist has been able to solve: but perhaps you with your experience and savoir-faire;- ) of beauty stuff… I had acne before and been exposed to Ecuadorian sunshine as teenage ….now i am on my 30s: what I would like to know is whether you can do something to diminish the pigmentation after acne is gone (there are like some brown spots that take the place of the acne) and the scars remaining after ….(for someone with a very oily skin)…I have the feeling my pores get more and more open with the years …oH la la :(
    Thanks you for all ,keep well & big smile !
