Q and A with Shelley Barrett founder of ModelCo

Posted on 27 January 2014

What are your favourite things that keep you healthy — mind, body and spirit?
 I consider beauty to be a direct result of what you put into your body. In order to feel beautiful, you need to feel healthy. I often do the Bondi to Bronte walk, it gives me an instant energy boost and is a peaceful place to relax my mind and assess my goals for the day.
What are your top 5 beauty tips for feeling great about yourself?
  1.  A lot of women feel more confident when they are wearing makeup, but don’t want a ‘caked on’ effect. Opt a BB Plus Cream like ModelCo’s BB Plus cream. It contains soothing green tea extract, protects your skin from the harsh sun with it's SPF30+ and provides light, even coverage to make your skin glow.
  2.  Hydration! Aim to drink up to 2 Litres of water a day, it really hydrates your skin from the inside out and leaves you feeling fabulous.
  3. Lip gloss is my staple beauty product as it adds instant glam to my look. Its quick and easy to apply and makes me feel feminine and beautiful.
  4. Take time out every few days to relax. Even if it is just for 30minutes, it is important to take time out for yourself to reinvigorate the mind and spirit.
  5.  I always feel more confident with a tan, so I use ModelCo’s Tan Mousse applied with a Blend Buffing Mitt or Tan in a Can for a radiant sun-kissed glow.  
Vie Active is born in Bondi, a destination known for it’s outdoor, casual, yet stylish lifestyle. How do you create a beach ready look?

Being beach ready firstly means being sun protected which is easy thanks to innovative products like ModelCo’s Body Bronze Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF50+. Safe, sunless tanning is so important and Body Bronze is a great choice. It protects against the sun but also leaves the skin with a subtle bronze sheen instead of chalkiness that other sunscreens are renowned for. ModelCo’s Daily Face Mattifying Sunscreen SPF50+ and Lip Balm is another sun safe product that provides lightweight coverage and maximum sun protection for your face and lips. I always carry a mascara and some lip gloss in my beach bag to take me from beach to bar. It's about being comfortable in your skin and making the low-fuss beach babe look work for you!
