Vanity Affairs: Inside The Beauty Cabinets Of Mara & Mine Founders Jasmine Stefanovic And Tamie Ingham
Prepare to lust.
Welcome to Vanity Affairs—a series where we document the beauty routines of notable people.
There are some people who have an I-can’t-put-my-finger-on-it kind of glow—a certain je ne sais quoi, if you will. You know the ones—their hair falls just right, their skin is dewy but never shiny, and they seem to exude confidence.
In the interest of public service, we’ve set about tracking down these actors, influencers, models, founders, entrepreneurs, musicians, spokespeople (and more!!) to find out their secrets. Have you got your pen and paper ready?
Previously, we’ve spoken to Jules Sebastian, Georgia Fowler, Jonathan Van Ness and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Today, we’ve got a two-for-one special. We’re heading inside the beauty cabinets of Mara & Mine design duo, Jasmine Stefanovic and Tamie Ingham.
With designs that have appeared on the feet of Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne and Margot Robbie, it’s not surprising that Mara & Mine shoes are topping many wishlists. Having come from completely separate fashion backgrounds—Tamie as a fashion stylist and Jasmine as a successful model—the duo have delicately combined their design aesthetics to create a brand known for its show-stopping, bold and risk-tasking pieces. And with a fashion eye like theirs, we could only imagine the goodies we would find on their vanities.
Here, Stefanovic and Ingham share every single product they use in their AM and PM beauty routines.
Tamie (T): “My skincare routine has changed around a bit recently. I have been put on a new regimen by Melanie Grant and my skin has never felt better! In the morning I will cleanse with the Augustinus Bader Cream Cleansing Gel and then apply the Victoria Beckham Power Serum. I love this product because it’s super lightweight but very moisturising. Then, I use the Medik8 R-retinoate Eye Serum to de-puff, reduce dark circles and keep me looking fresh faced. Then I top it off with Aspect Dr’s Hydrating Face SPF 50 and I am out the door.”
“My night time routine is a little more complex. I start by using the iS Clinical Warming Honey Cleanser. This product is quite possibly the best facial cleanser I have ever used. I could eat it! Then I pop on the U Beauty Resurfacing Compound, my Medik8 Eye Serum and top it all off with Augustinus Bader’s The Rich Cream, which makes my skin feel so nourished. Once-a-week, I’ll also reach for the Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 to give my skin a good exfoliation.”
Jasmine (J): “I like to keep my skincare routine super simple. I use the Rationale Serum 1 and Serum 2 morning and night and follow up with my La Mer Moisturiser to lock in hydration. I find that the Serum 1 gives my skin a radiance that lasts all day and I add in the Serum 2 for an extra kick of antioxidant protection.”
J: “I like to keep my makeup minimal on a day-to-day basis. For a quick, five-minute face my go-to products are Nars Tinted Moisturiser and the Nars Bronzer. I love how light and transparent the Nars Tinted Moisturiser is and find that the shade of bronzer stays on my skin all day long. I also love the Tom Ford Makeup Stick for under the eyes and to cover any blemishes. Then I pop on some Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara and finish off with my favourite lip balm from Mecca, the Lip De-Luscious.”
T: “I’m similar to Jasmine in that I’m all about a natural face. For day, I mix Omorovicza’s Complexion Perfection with ByTerry’s Cellular Rose Brightening CC Serum. These combined give you a dewy but lightweight coverage. I then apply Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow and the RMS Beauty Lip-To-Cheek as my cream blush. I think a cream blush looks more natural on my complexion. Then for a bit of mascara, I go for the Kevyn Aucoin Volume Mascara and finish off with the Omorovicza Lip Balm.”
“For night, I generally use Chantecaille Just Skin as my base. It is a tinted moisturiser that has a lightweight finish without being too full coverage or matte. I also recently discovered the Westman Atelier brand and love the Face Trace Contour Stick to lightly contour my cheekbones, jawline and eye area. Their Lit Up Highlight Stick and Baby Cheeks Blush Stick are also great for giving that natural glow. In terms of eyes, I wear the Stila Liquid Eyeliner smudged through my upper lash line and then the ByTerry 3-in-1 Eyeshadow Stick to create a smokey effect. The Nars Sheer Lipstick in Instant Crush is my go-to lip colour, it’s just so versatile.”
J: “I am definitely a wash-and-wear type of girl when it comes to my hair. I have a natural curl so like to let my hair air-dry and it usually sits quite nicely. I am not very good at styling my own hair so most of the time it’s up in a top knot. However, when I do decide to pop some product in, I love the Kevin Murphy Leave-in Repair because it keeps my hair hydrated and stops my ends from splitting and the Oribe Curl Control Silkening Crème. This product helps my hair stay in its natural curl without getting frizzy and controls my hair throughout the day to the evening.”
T: “I wish I was a wash-and-wear type of girl! But unfortunately my naturally wavy hair can get a bit out of control, unless I’m straight out of salt water. I use a heat protectant and anti-frizz serum and then dry it and tong. A lot of effort for a tousled, effortless look! In terms of my favourite products, I love Shu Uemura’s Urban Moisture. This product not only smells amazing but leaves my hair so shiny and soft. It is a hydro-moisturising treatment mask for dry hair that I use and leave-in once a week. I also can’t go past the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray. This is great after tonging to give my hair texture and is so easy to finish off a look.”
T: “I love a fragrance that is fresh and impactful but that I can’t smell on myself. For the day I opt for a fresh fragrance with citrus and floral notes that could be unisex. At the moment, I’m wearing Maison Crivelli Absynth Boreale. For the evenings, I wear something a little sweeter and more feminiine. Maison Francis Kurkdijan Baccarat Rouge is a favourite.”
J: “I love to wear the Acqua Colonia Rosa Novella from Santa Maria Novella and I also like to swap and use the Dior J’Adore sometimes too. I prefer a softer, more floral scented fragrance, something that isn’t overpowering but lasts. As for the evenings, I tend to use a stronger scent when I want to feel a bit fancier. I use the Cartier La Panthere when going out.”
