GCM chats with Miss Universe Australia; Scherri-Lee Biggs
How did you feel upon hearing the news that you had won the title of Miss Universe Australia?
Completely overwhelmed! I didn’t sleep a wink that night! It almost felt surreal. One minute I was over the moon excited and the next i was a ball of nerves, thinking of what was to come and then back to being ecstatic again. You obviously consider what it might be like to win in the lead up to the final, but i promise you, nothing can prepare you for what you really feel on that night!
Why do you think it’s important to live a healthy, balanced lifestyle?
I’m a huge believer in this. Western society today is particularly unhealthy, yet we’re still up in arms about heart disease, diabetes and cancers. I’m not saying that purely adopting a healthy lifestyle will cure all of these issues completely, but fuelling our bodies with the things it requires will at least give it the fighting chance. Personally for myself living a healthy lifestyle means energy and health, which suits my busy schedule.
What does your daily beauty routine entail?
I use a few things. In the morning I keep it light and natural. I use the Nude by nature natural face wash and toner and finish off with a 30+ sunscreen. At night I use Via Condotti 5% glycolic wash to keep my skin rejuvenating and finish off with the Via Condotti vitamin c serum.
What are the top five beauty products you can’t live without?
1. Kiehls Olive fruit oil shampoo and conditioner. Works well with my thick hair.
2. Nude by Nature Mineral Primer and Nude by Nature Finishing Veil. To keep my makeup fresh all day.
3. Natures are all natural paw paw balm with added shea butter, macadamia and jojoba oil.
4. Moroccan oil for my hair.
5. Nude by natures soft focus illuminator, to high cheekbones, nose, and cupids bow.
What beauty tips do you have for Gold Coasters?
Gold Coasters are renowned for the healthy lifestyles, because you all spend so much time in that beautiful sun, wear a 30+ sunscreen everyday and wear a hat to keep your skin youthful!
