Beauty Banter With Jacqueline Fernandez

Text by Aparrna Gupta

The down-to-earth actress of Sri Lankan, Canadian and Malaysian origin shares a page from her beauty diary

Signature style
I like to keep it fresh and light. Caking my face with make-up has never been my thing.

Current obsession
The Body Shop’s Oils of Life facial oil is my absolute favourite these days. It has this incredible ability to leave the skin soft without being greasy or sticky, giving me the radiance that I aspire for.

Reel inspiration
I love both my looks from the film Roy. The one with short hair is very sophisticated, while the one with long hair is more carefree.

Morning fix
My face wash is one thing I absolutely cannot do without. I am very particular about cleansing the skin with care.

Fond memories
I love the aquatic scents of the Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask by The Body Shop as it reminds me of the Sri Lankan beaches.

Nostalgic trip
English Rose talcum powder by Yardley London takes me down the memory lane and straight to my grandmother’s dressing table.

De-stress moment
A relaxing body massage gives me an instant high.

Guilty pleasure
Pampering my feet relaxes me immediately. I always carry the Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi kit in my travelling bag.

On-the-go essential
My lip balm is with me irrespective of where I am heading. I love using coconut lip butter.

Diet diary
My diet consists of macrobiotic meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner and as much organic foods as I can manage. I try to stay away from sugar, and fried and processed foods but do give in when I feel like it. It’s all good as long as you understand that eating healthy is the better way to go!

Dresser must-haves
A good moisturiser for constant hydration, eye cream to combat dark circles, sunscreen to prevent skin damage, and blusher for rosy cheeks.

Gorgeous mane trick
To perk up a bad hair day I tie my tresses into a messy bun.

Favourite shopping destination
London. Has been and will always be.

Beauty myth
That wearing make-up every day is bad for your skin. If you use a good make-up remover, it’s perfectly fine to wear it daily.
