OLIVIA RUELLO, CEO OF BUSINESS CHICKS
What’s the best piece of beauty advice that you have ever received?
I am certain my mother told me to never wear glitter eye-shadow, but sadly I might have fallen victim to that. So the best piece of beauty advice that I've always sworn by is no matter what time of the day it is, where you are or what you have been doing, always wash your face before you go to bed. Your skin will always thank you for it and it’s my savior when it comes to jet lag.”
What do you know about beauty that you wished you had known earlier?
There are so many ‘miracle creams’ on the market today, but I wish when I was twenty I knew that beauty isn’t just about what eye cream you use, it’s a daily routine of healthy living, hydration and sleep. Match those things with topical vitamins, a great moisturiser and your favourite bronzer for an all-over glow and you won’t need the rest of your beauty bag.
What’s your ‘can’t live without it’ beauty product?
My daily routine always starts with Chanel Hydra beauty cream, it is my everyday go-to moisturiser and makes sure that no matter what my day looks like, my skin will survive. When I am travelling for Business Chicks events you can always find PawPaw balm in my handbag for my lips and to tame my eyebrows and some Clarins hand cream. My favourite beauty bargain is the MaxFactor false lash effect mascara, I swear by it.
What’s your advice for busy professional women in finding a professional and confidence boosting make up ‘look’?
I think when it comes to women’s beauty routines the most important thing to remember is that beauty looks different to everyone and on everyone. You can be completely happy and ready to face to world with a bare face or you might never leave the house without your favourite red lip. Whatever makes you feel the best is what real beauty looks like and is when we are most confident.
