The Cluster would like to present the first part in our Team Beauty Series. This was done with the Founder - Margarita Sidorova
1. Describe Your Morning and Night Skincare Routine.
My Morning routine is simple, I wash my face with a cream cleanser, some days I use a gel cleanser. I make my own at the moment, I haven't purchased a facewash in several years. Once my skin is washed I like to moisturize with cream. I use one of my own formulas and also occasionally the Estée Lauder Daywear Anti-Oxidant 72H-Hydration Sorbet Creme. I am also a huge fan of Biotherm. Lastly, I use a spot treatment cream that I formulated. It works to reduce redness and breakouts. It is very gentle and does not irritate the skin. I also have a Medex Lipbalm which I use constantly. In the evening my routine is identical except I add a powder mask which targets any skin issues and also offer mild exfoliating. I change the powder mask formulas every few weeks depending on my skin needs. For an extra effect I will add a reusable heating face mask to help the active penetrate deeper into the skin.
2. What are your top 5 Skincare products?
1. Moisturizer (Face and Body)
2. Powder Face Treatment Mask
3. Hot Mask
4. Body Bronzing Oil
5. Lip Balm.
3. What do you use for your hair?
For my hair, I am not loyal to any shampoo brands. I use blonde correcting shampoo/conditioner with purple pigments a few times a month. I use a conditioning mask of my own formulation with neem oil, wheatgerm and Canadian Glacial Clay. It soothes my scalp which gets irrupted often. I do not wash my hair every day. Probably twice a week and once a week with only the hair treatment mask.
4. What is your must-have for makeup?
I am a huge fan of Burberry as a high-end brand, their lipsticks are amazing. The colour Military Red is one of the best reds on the market. The German brand Essence is great as a more affordable alternative. Their bronzers are fantastic. Primers can be great - I use the Covergirl green colour correcting primer. For the eyes I am a loyal fan of L'Oreal's blue mascara.
