Klara Cosmetics: What do you love most about Christmas?
Brooke Styles: Being with my family. I don’t have a big family, but since my life is a little busy, Christmas is the one time we know we’ll all be in one room together.
Klara Cosmetics: How are you planning to celebrate Christmas this year?
Brooke Styles: Australian style! A BBQ on the farm, with a tarp water slide into the pool. Oh and letting grandma have a few too many champagnes…whoops!
Klara Cosmetics: Are there any Christmas traditions that you hold very close to your heart?
Brooke Styles: We have a few family recipes that only come out at Christmas and it’s definitely worth the wait each year.
Klara Cosmetics: Tell us about your favourite look for the holidays?
Brooke Styles: I always love a bold red lip. Every year I wear my Klara Mini Kiss Proof Lipstick in red and it lasts through Christmas lunch and jumping in the pool with the little ones.
Klara Cosmetics: When the holiday season is over, how do you like to pamper yourself?
Brooke Styles: More like a detox… After so much food, my mornings are filled with Pilates and smoothies. I also like to take care of my skin during this time, [as I wear] so much makeup for all different occasions. A good deep moisturiser and a gritty scrub to wash off those party nights.
Klara Cosmetics: What are you best tips for long lasting holiday makeup?
Brooke Styles: I try to keep away from heavy eye makeup for day events. My go-to look is a bold lip, simple matte eyeshadow and a good wing.
Klara Cosmetics: What beauty trends do you hope will make a return in 2019?
Brooke Styles: I really hope the cat eye makes a big return next year. Especially with a bold lip, I love colour.
