Anna Bamford, best known for her romantic role in the TV series Wonderland, is set to grace our screens yet again as she heads to Summer Bay for an exciting guest appearance in Ch7 TV show Home & Away.
Anna’s character is set to spice things up as the new love interest of a popular Summer Bay regular when she Who could it be we wonder? Well, we’re going to have to wait until the episodes air in November to find out.
She has just finished a fantastic run with the Sydney Theatre Company along-side the delectable Cate Blanchett and next month the show is heading to Broadway. This rising star is all go go go, not to mention she’s just been announced as the new face and brand ambassador of popular skincare brand – Dr. LeWinn’s.
Anna, how do you keep your skin looking so flawless?
Oh Thanks! The foundation is good (laughs). No, I cleanse and exfoliate. I feel like exfoliating is actually really important to get all of the make-up off, like the foundation. I usually use an exfoliate three times a week but if I have been working that day and have had heavy [screen] make-up on then I will give my face a good scrub!
Having that amount of make-up put on and taken off your skin must take its toll?
I find that moisture is they key. Getting that moisture back into your skin, especially if it’s been dried out from all the make-up and the constant removal and re-application of make-up. I use the Dr LeWinn’s eternal youth serum and moisturiser, they work really well together and feel beautiful and soothing on my skin. I always use an SPF everyday. The Dr LeWinn’s day cream has an SPF, so I recommend finding a good day cream with SPF.
Do you have any on-set beauty tips or tricks?
I use a little toning mist which I spritz over my face before a take. It’s great for if your skin is feeling a bit dry or your skin has maybe started to sink into your facial creases, it just gives it a little boost so your skin and makeup looks refreshed.
What foundation brand do you like to use?
I like to use NARS because their foundation is really light and has a dewy look and texture to it. But normally I don’t wear foundation that much, I prefer the feel of my skin without it, so I try not to use it.
(Maybe that’s one of the secret’s behind her flawless skin!)
What’s your go to make-up look for an audition?
Well it changes depending on where I am. If I’m auditioning here in Australia, it’s a very natural look, very much who you are, minimal make-up. Whereas, in America everything is turned up a lot, it’s Hollywood so it’s that next level, everything is more glitz and glam and vamped-up. For instance in America, I went to an audition wearing heels, where as if I went into an audition over here in heels, it would feel way too over the top and showy.
