I had the pleasure of not only meeting the lovely Louise Redknapp, but interviewing her about her new beauty brand, Wild About Beauty. I have to say that she is honestly one of the sweetest girls I have ever met. When she was talking about her brand, her enthusiasm for the products was refreshing. She was passionate about it and it certainly showed. As the champagne flowed and the glosses were applied, I chatted to Louise to get a little information about the Wild About Beauty range.
While she gave me a tour of the make up counter, I sampled some of the products and got to ask her some questions. Speaking about the brand, Louise said,
” It’s a brand that myself and my business partner ,Kim, who was my make up artist for eight years, decided to create. When I had my son, Charlie, I suffered really bad from pigmentation in my skin. I’m not a heavy make up wearer so it was that thing of how am I going to make my skin look like how I want it without having to wear heavy make up?
She says, “When I worked with Kim, she managed to give me my confidence back after having my baby and covered up the bits that needed covering up while leaving the rest of my skin pretty natural. I’m quite fussy and I said to her one day, How do you do this?”
She said; “I make these formulations and I was like, I want them, can I buy them? And I didn’t want to design them just for me, we need to create them for everyone. That’s how the initial idea came about.”
Every girl has their own list of essentials that they carry around in their make up bag. Louise gave me a little insight into what makes hers.
“I’m quite natural when it comes to make up, so my Sheer Glow Moisture Tint, Mascara and gloss are essentials in my make up bag.”
I was intrigued by the name, Wild About Beauty, so I wanted to find out how she came up with the name. She said,
” Well I love animals and in particular Tigers. They’re wild and represent everything that beauty stands for. It’s all about natural products. Plus I was hoping to get to do a photo shoot with a real Tiger!” (She was only joking ladies!)
Finally, I asked the classic question, “If you were stranded on a desert island, what one product would you have with you?
” Definitely the Sheer Glow Moisture Tint. I love how it gives me a natural glow. Also it has SPF 20 and natural skin care properties including skin-conditioning Vitamin E and unique anti-oxidant Organic Winter Cherry Extract which will help keep my skin healthy and youthful in the sun.”
After interviewing Louise, I browsed the products and came across this beautiful Ultra Sheer Powder Blush. I noticed the names of each product were after everyday people. Louise informed me that she named each one after the girls who all work for the brand. (How sweet!)
I chose the shade Bella, I loved the stunning coral colour on me and it gave off a great sheer effect. Another important reason is the fact that it has Aloe Vera in it. I’ve become obsessed with Aloe Vera recently, I even wear a mineral based powder now with Aloe Vera as the main ingredient. (I also picked it for the name, Bella, I love it!)
Thank you to Louise for taking the time to speak to me. I had so much fun interviewing her and she made me feel so relaxed in her company. She really is a lovely girl and I wish her all the best with her brand. Also thank you to Lucy and the Wild About Beauty girls for talking me through the products and allowing me to sample some.
