nsm Style: Baukjen, founder of Isabella Oliver and NEW Baukjen range, talks beauty with nonstopmama!

It’s an oh-so-exciting week for Baukjen de Swaan Arons!!

This week, the founder of Isabella Olivericon - the HUGELY popular maternity label loved by fashion insiders and nonstopmamas-to-be – is celebrating the arrival of her new ‘baby’: Baukjenicon, 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 websiteicon (just live!) …

See what I mean, mamas?! Very lovely.

Click over and have a browse (and don’t miss the great ‘bonus’ features, including a monthly Style Guideicon, with Baukjen’s edits, fab Blogicon and Trend Storiesicon and more!).

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?

I love Aesop’s shower gel (shown in A Rose By Any Other Name, below) and Molton Brown’s bath products. Both smell lovely and make your skin feel great.


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!!
