I’m insanely jealous of Cate Blanchett’s radiant skin and, up until now, had no idea how she could look so perfect with so many things on her plate. There are the scripts to read, the movies to shoot, the co-directing of the Sydney Theatre Company and of course, the rushing around after three young boys. But she recently revealed the beauty booty that she swears by to Style List so now we know . . .
A friend suggested that she use SK-II Facial Treatment Essence ($185) and SK-II Whitening Facial Whitening Source Clear Lotion ($100) during her first pregnancy after noticing that Cate was starting to get some discolouration and her skin was dehydrated. She’s been hooked ever since so was no doubt thrilled when the Japanese brand asked her to become its international spokeswoman four years ago.
NARS Blush in Deep Throat ($62) is another must-have for Cate, if initially down to its name: “I picked it up and was like, ‘I have to buy that because of the name!’” She swears by Lucas’ Papaw Ointment too, and every other day pops an SK-II Signs Facial Treatment Mask ($125 for 14 pairs) in the freezer before applying that.
