Everything you need to achieve naturally flawless skin is available in Nude by Nature's
Complexion Essentials Starter Kit. More than cosmetic, it's good for you too!
Aussie export and model mum Elyse Taylor is seemingly doing it all. The face of Nude by Nature divides her time between looking after her adorable daughter, Lila, and travelling around the world to fulfil countless modelling duties for brands such as Witchery, Free People, Bonds and Milea. That is, when she's not gracing the cover of
Vogue or walking the runway for Victoria's Secret, of course.
Impressive resume aside, what's most intriguing about the New York-based darling is that her attitude to beauty is low-fuss, holistic and refreshingly real. So how does she stay on top of it all? Keep scrolling to read what Elyse had to say when we quizzed her on all things beauty.
What does your daily skincare routine entail?
"I am all about clear, clean skin. I cleanse and moisturise every morning and evening and exfoliate every other day — I love the Nude by Nature Face Scrub because it's incredibly effective but gentle enough for regular use. I also love face masks and apply them while I'm cooking dinner or reading Lila bedtime stories . . . I'm all about multi-tasking!"

How does your skincare routine change when you travel?
"Long haul air travel tends to dry out my skin, so I use the Nude by Nature Nude Oil to combat any dryness — it's super hydrating and provides a protective barrier on the skin. I also increase my water intake and I sleep with a hydrating face mask. In terms of makeup, I love the new
Complexion Essentials Starter Kit ($59.95), which contains all my Nude by Nature favourites, in a travel-size chic makeup case. Perfect for touch ups on the go!"

What's your go-to beauty look?
"I like natural, dewy skin for the day with a little illuminator on the cheekbones, the Nude by Nature Soft Focus Illuminator is my go to. If I'm going out in the evening or to an event, I always feel a bold lip adds a dramatic effect and dresses up any outfit."

How do you balance work, motherhood and looking after yourself?
"I try and stick to a schedule the best I can, this really is imperative in my life so I can get everything done. I also ensure that I concentrate on the activity that I am doing, if I am at work, I'm at work, if I am with Lila, I am fully concentrated on being with her. I also find regular exercise helps me balance out and relieves any pressure or stress I may feel. It's good to be able to have an outlet."

What do you recommend for glowing skin?
"Well firstly, choose products that are kind to your skin and don't contain any irritating or harmful chemicals. Then it's all about diet and exercise, both make a huge difference to your skin. I drink at least two litres of water a day and include a large variety of fruit and vegetables in my diet. I find a green juice filled with leafy greens is an easy way of doing this, especially when I am running around or at work."

How would you do your makeup for a special occasion?
"I always like to start with a great base, so I cleanse, exfoliate and apply a hydrating mask. Then I apply the the Nude by Nature Natural Mineral Cover and the Soft focus Illuminator on cheeks and brow bones. I curl my lashes and apply mascara, Armani mascara is my favourite. At the moment I love a nude lip and a smokey eye, I love using the Nude by Nature Smokey Eye Palette — it's foolproof!"

What is your favourite way to unwind?
"Swimming in the ocean. I find it soothing for the soul and the salt water is great for clearing my mind and skin! Hanging out with Lila at the park is also pretty awesome and a great way to relax . . . she has a big personality and it's hilarious to watch her."
