It’s an oh-so-exciting week for Baukjen de Swaan Arons!!
This week, the founder of Isabella Oliver - the HUGELY popular maternity label loved by fashion insiders and nonstopmamas-to-be – is celebrating the arrival of her new ‘baby’: Baukjen, the super-stylish new ‘face’ and name of her much-loved, non-maternity collection (previously called Isabella Oliver 365).
And, yes, it’s GORGEOUS – think simple, beautifully cut pieces designed to take you from everyday to dressed up and everything in inbetween!
Here’s a shot of the new Baukjen website (just live!) …
See what I mean, mamas?! Very lovely.
In the meantime, I’m thrilled that Baukjen has taken time out of her non-stop schedule to chat to us today about her beauty loves!
My beauty secrets, with Baukjen
What are your everyday make-up must-haves?
MAC mascara (below) is a must-have in my make-up bag. I also love their grey eyeliner when I feel like adding a smoky eye. I also think a matte, dusty pink lipstick is the perfect finishing touch for an everyday look. This season, I’m wearing one from Nars.
How do you look after your hair, and style it in a hurry?
It’s curly, so it’s normally just wash and go. I’m lucky because I don’t need to add many products to it, which is great when you’re in a rush.
Any bodycare favourites?
Nails: nude, bright or au naturel?!
I like alternating between nudes and bright colours such as orange or coral.
Any beauty indulgences you try and make time for?
I like to treat myself to a monthly manicure.
What are the best beauty tricks you’ve ever been shown?
Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream (below) is a fantastic all-rounder. I use it on my lips to keep them soft and add a subtle enhancement.
- Thanks SO much for sharing your beauty tips and tricks with nonstopmama, Baukjen!!
