She might be only 21, but Laura Enever has already achieved more than some of us could ever imagine. The blonde surfer babe joined the Women's World Tour in 2011 at the age of 18 and has since gone on to be a surfing champion, taking home many titles, and recently surfed up a storm in the 2013 ASP World Tour. But when she's not riding the waves, Laura wears the hat of fitness and well-being expert for Simple skincare. She has a true passion for the way exercise can lead to a clear complexion and healthy body. So of course we wanted to know what she eats day-to-day. A little hint? She loves to keep things simple with raw foods and treats herself with chocolate daily.
Quite possibly our most famous supermodelling export, Sarah Murdoch lives, looks and breaths Australian culture. Tall, lean, blonde and tanned, the mother of three has graced international and Australian magazine covers including Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Glamour, GQ and Harper's Bazaar; and has modelled for the likes of Saint Laurent, Ralph Lauren and Bonds. We sat down with the ex-ballet dancer to find out her favourite beauty products, click through to read her answers and take a trip down memory lane. . .
To make sure Selena's skin was glowing, Bass first prepped her complexion with Simple Hydrating Light Moisturiser ($3.99), and then she applied Armani Luminous Silk Foundation ($90) to even out her skin. "After moisturising, foundation will spread easily and stay on longer," Bass expalined.
Then, she focused on creating a navy eye makeup look inspired by the intricate corset in her dress. Bass used Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes in Navy Blue to line and define her eyes and finished with multiple coats of mascara. The final touch was the Tom Ford Lip Color in Black Orchid ($65) for a nice contrast.
Considering the exposed corset of her dress, Selena opted to keep her hair simple and glossy. Vigi started off with a blend of Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Original Formula ($5.99) and Straight Fixation Smoothing Crème ($10.99) and applied it to her wet strands for shiny, frizz-free hair. Next she blow dried Selena's hair using a round brush and the Harry Josh Pro Tools Pro Dryer. Once her hair was completely dry, Vigi finished the look with Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Crème ($10.99) for that silky smooth finish.

Finding good beauty buys for under $10 can often be a bit tricky, especially if you've got sensitive skin. So today, we've gathered the top 10 makeup removers — from wipes and lotions — that remove even the most stubborn makeup and oil, even waterproof products. There's even one to use pre-tan. It's all in here ready to shop, let's go!
She's found her match in the cleansing wipes. "If you're an actress — and in some cases, this goes for all women — the only thing you can control about your skin is what you put on your face at the beginning of the day, and what you do when you take your makeup off," she said. "Otherwise, it's affected by stress, makeup artists, weather, pollution. The great thing about Simple products is that they protect you against those things — you can wipe it all off at the end of the day." If only those wipes could whisk away Marnie's clingy ex-boyfriend, too.
We put the call out for readers who wanted to review the Simple Kind to Skin Wipes ($6.99), and seeing as though they are a favourite among models and the Sugar editors alike (they're actually the number one facial skincare brand in the UK), we weren't short of volunteers! Our chosen beauties have been putting the colourant-free, alcohol-free and artificial perfume-free cleansing wipes through their paces, and the first round of results were really positive. Let's see what our second round of reviewers had to say!
"Beauty products that require minimum time but provide maximum results are my friend. We all know that makeup needs to be removed each and every night, but there are some occasions where scrubbing at the sink is the last thing on my to-do list! Enter, the Simple Skin Facial Wipes. One thorough swipe around each area of your face and neck takes off most makeup, while a second swipe with a fresh cloth ensures all traces of eye makeup and base is removed properly. Such a lifesaver! I make sure a pack is permanently kept in my gym bag, car and overnight bag to ensure I never have an excuse to sleep with a made-up face again. Winner." – Klarissa
"These wipes are handy to keep in your bathroom cabinet or handbag, but I wouldn’t use them each and every day. You need to use more than one cloth to get a really deep clean, which is often achieved more easily with cleanser and face cloth. I liked the ease of these wipes, and the lack of alcohol and oil meant they didn’t dry my skin out afterwards, but I think I’ll save them for occasional use only." – Sally

"I'm always a bit doubtful when it comes to cleansing wipes, but I have to admit my fears were misplaced with the Simple Kind to Skin Wipes. No filmy residue, no stinging and best of all it got off my Friday night Smokey eye. No more going to bed with my face on! I like the subtle clean smell, too." — Veronica
"Facial cleansing wipes are an essential for me, so I've tried more than my fair share! The Simple wipes stood out from others, mostly because they didn't leave my face feeling soapy. I often rinse after using other brands, but didn't feel the need with these puppies. In fact my skin felt so soft I could've skipped my night moistuiser. Very impressed." — Stacey

Picture this. You've had a late night out with the girls and not only is it way past your bedtime, but the thought of having to go through your normal cleanse, tone, serum, eye cream, moisturise regime makes you sigh, hard. Enter Simple Kind to Skin Wipes ($6.99) — your new skin saviours. From the number one facial skincare brand in the UK, Simple Kind to Skin Wipes are free from colourants, alcohol and artificial perfumes, which means they have a barely-there scent and won't dry out your skin. At all. They are also pH balanced which is essential for maintaining happy skin, especially on the most sensitive of beauties. And while we're sharing truths, we also travel with our Simple Kind to Skin Wipes (much easier than carting around numerous bottles!), and we use them before and after a workout. Waterproof mascara beware — just one wipe and you're a goner...
One of the strongest makeup look to come out of New York fashion week so far is the minimalist. Whether it be nude lips at Victoria Beckham, neutral nails at Zac Posen (and Derek Lam and Thakoon), white nails at Rag & Bone, barely there makeup at Altuzarra and Charlotte Ronson and clean, natural hair at Jill Stuart; this Spring is looking like a beautifully plain one. There's an emphasis on strong brows and contouring on the face, with nude (and matte) nails reigning supreme. In this week's colour story, we're taking our cues from the runway and going back to basics. Just remember that this isn't about no makeup, this is about nude makeup with a dash of dewy, highlighted cheekbones to boot — all hail the minimalist.
We don't want much from our eye products. Just a little de-puffing, fixing of dark circles, brightening, concealing and maybe helping us fake a few extra hours sleep. That's not too much to ask is it? Luckily it isn't with these crop of recent releases. The trouble is, which one is so good that it's going to be crowned Best Eye Product in the 2012 BellaSugar Australia Beauty Awards? Will it be Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Premiere Intense Moisture and Renewal Regeneration Eye Cream which helps to strengthen the delicate skin around the eye area as well as reducing the appearance of puffiness, dark circles and crows feet, Aveeno Positively Radiant Eye Illuminator which features vitamin B3 and light diffusion technology to help your eyes look fresh and, Simple Kind to Eyes Eye Make Up Corrector Pen, a precision-point eye makeup remover pen, Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye, a fragrance-free product that targets fine lines, under-eye circles and puffiness or Lancôme Rénergie Multiple Lift Volumetry Yeux Eye Duo which features a firming and de-puffing cream as well as an illuminating concealer?
