As one of Australia’s most prominent up and coming young actresses and one of three finalists in the Rising Star category of the Cosmopolitan Fun and Fearless Female Awards, Phoebe Tonkin is currently living out her acting dreams in LA. We’ve admired her beauty from afar for quite a while now, so we thought it was high time we chatted to the Aussie beauty to find out about her favourite products, her skincare routine and what a typical day in the life of Phoebe looks like — with Theresa Palmer and Bella Heathcote among her good friends, we bet it’s good fun. This is the inaugural cool-person-to-perve-on post in our very fabulous Real Beauty series, so do click through!
What are your top five, must-have beauty products?
“I use Shu Emura Eye Lash Curler ($40), Kora Tinted Day Cream ($59.95), Benefit Cha Cha Tint ($55), Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna ($55), Nars Blush in Orgasm ($45).
I don’t stray from this, I’m a creature of habit!”
What is your daily beauty routine?
“I use Julisis Silver Face Wash, Eminence Clear Skin Probiotic Moisturizer, Kora Organics Balancing Rose Mist ($39.95), Lucas Paw Paw Ointment ($5.99) and Terri Lawton eye cream.”
What is your biggest beauty secret?
“Coconut oil in my hair and [on my] skin, and I use fresh lemon juice once a week on my skin. I drink at least two litres of water a day.”
Where do you go to get pampered?
“I go to Clear Skin Clinic in Double Bay [Sydney] for facials, and Valonz for blow dries. In LA, I go to Terri Lawton for facials and Glenn Nutley colours my hair.”
What does a typical day for you involve?
“I get an almond milk cappuccino and a fresh vegetable juice, do a pilates class and go to a meeting or audition, and I make salads or bake salmon and sweet potato for dinner.
I like to do acupuncture and take a bath with Epsom Salts to relax. Sometimes with a glass of red wine and a good book.”
