Irish influencer Charleen Murphy’s top beauty tips and tricks

Suzy Griffin caught up with social media influencer and co-host of the Hold My Drink podcast, Charleen Murphy to discuss his skincare and beauty secrets.

I am loving your GRWM (Get Ready With Me) videos, your skin always looks incredible, do you have a strict skincare regime?

So, at the moment, I’m using mainly Eucerin products which my skin is loving. I also love the Cerave hydrating cleanser. I’m really strict on myself taking off my makeup properly too. Makeup wipes are the devil.

Do you believe what you eat and drink has a big impact on your skin, if so what do you think helps?

I believe so, I notice such a difference in my skin when I’m eating healthy foods and drinking lots of water. I also break out sometimes after drinking alcohol and eating too much sugar. Whole clean foods and water definitely help.

How would you describe your everyday makeup look?

My everyday look would be mascara, a glowy face base, bronzer and my eyebrows done. Also, sometimes some cream blush.

What are your three ‘desert island’ makeup or skincare products?

Has to be cream contour. I adore the Kash beauty sculpt stick! Then also a glowy base/moisturiser, and the third would be eyebrow gel – I don’t feel ready until my brows are set into place.

You’re always ahead of the curve with makeup! What products do you think will blow up this year?

The Dior Powder-No-Powder is insane. Made by Mitchell blursh – I’ve been loving them for ages but they deserve more hype, I reckon they’ll blow up! Also, True Beauty by Aideen Kate, everyone needs to try her face palette.

What’s your favourite beauty secret?

Look after your skin! Your skin is what all your makeup sits on so if you neglect that, your makeup products wont work as well on top.

Who’s your beauty icon right now? Which looks are you most interested in recreating?

I adore the Kardashians’ glam. Especially on the new series, they’re going for more of a matte glam which I love trying.

We have seen you get treatments like lip tinting, what are your favourite cosmetic beauty procedures?

My favourite treatments are definitely the lip tinting and also dermaplaning, it makes my skin so soft and a dream to apply makeup on.

What are your summer holiday beauty essentials? What’s in your beach bag?

Always a lip balm and suncream! That’s as much as I’d wear by the pool.
