5 MINUTES WITH NATURAL BEAUTY, SOPHIE HART:
STYLE DIRECTOR AT SOPHIE HART STYLING (SHS)
I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT … Exercise. Great food. Engaging conversation … in that order, preferably with a coffee in between exercise and food!
I RELAX BY … I’ve just started playing the piano so I do this at the end of every work day. Most of the things I do to relax are all creative pursuits – reading, cooking, gardening. Well, apart from those times when I totally tune out and into a few episodes of Game Of Thrones or The Good Wife. I’m also partial to a spa holiday in a tropical location.
I LIKE TO … laugh a lot and have fun. I love beautiful clothes and dressing well.
I THINK BEAUTY IS … in the eye of the beholder. An oldie but a goodie!
MY FAVOURITE BEAUTY TREATMENT THAT LEAVES ME LOOKING AND FEELING NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL IS … coating myself in body oil after a shower. It’s so nourishing. I also love a good massage and I get them often.
MY NUMBER ONE BEAUTY TIP IS … Keep it natural. Really work towards having clear skin. There are a lot of ways to achieve this. Find the treatment that works best for you. There’s nothing nicer than clear flawless skin. I only wear a light foundation with a touch of highlighter added, brow pencil, mascara, blush and bronzer. I do my makeup in 5 mins. It’s simple and it’s easy.
WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PEARL OF WISDOM THAT YOU WISH YOU COULD BROADCAST TO THE WORLD? Good things take time! You need to work towards everything you want in life. Success just doesn’t happen over night, it takes time and effort. This theory should be applied to everything you do in life and not just your career. Put in the effort, always. And good things will come.
WHAT IS IT INSPIRES YOU TO DO WHAT YOU DO? My job is something that came naturally to me. I think the seed was planted when I noticed more and more people complimenting me on my style of dress or the way I decorated by home. It evolved naturally from there and I’ve never looked back.
